for your daily ride in limousine or

to neigh at midnight prowlers. But
I do not think so. Not if I know you,
and I have followed you on some of
the best tracks in the country. No,
rather will you choose the path that
leads to extinction. Your fossil form
will repose within a glass case, to
be admired by the National Knitting
Society when they hold convention at'
Saratoga. When the Peace Congress
meets to sing hymns at Churchill
Downs or Sheepshead Bay, your pris-
tine glory will not be forgotten. But
whatever becomes of you, Equus, I
shall never forget you. I have loved

VAUDEVILLE AT THE MAJESTIC
An abbreviated edition of the mu-
sical comedy, "SeptembersMorn," is
the headliner at the Majestic for the
first part of this week. The show is
condensed to 30 minutes of song, com-
edy, and dancing. Six pretty girls are
included in a cast of ten members.
Mack and Earl, Broadway musical
comedy stars, appear in a comedy skit,
and Bonnie Gaylord and Iva Lancton
present a blackface act.
Lew and Mollie Hunting of the fa-
mous quartet of Hunting entertainers,
present songs and dances. LaVine and
Inman offer a pretentious novelty en-
titled "Sally's Visit."
AT THE MAJESTIC TODAY
A Message to Garcia"is the offer-
ing at the Majestic today. It is a five-
part feature, produced by the Edison
studios from the essay by the late
Elbert Hubbard. Scenes taken in the
jungles, and upon the historic batle-
fields of Cuba are prominent in the
production. The sinking of the Maine
in the harbor of Havana is one of the
exciting scenes. Shows will be given
at 1:30, 3, 7, and 8:30 o'clock.
AT THE ARCADE
The Arcade will show Mary Pick-
ford in "The Pride of the Clan" Mon-
day, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this
week. This is the second of the big
features produced by the Pickford
"'The Pride of the Clan" furnishes an
excellent dramatic vehicle for the win-
some star, affording her abundant op-
portunities for her many attractive
moods. The picture is brimful of
humor and pathos, carrying the audi-
ence along with breathless interest
from beginning to end.

SENIOR LAW APPENDS INTEREST-
ING NOTES TO HONOR SYSTEMI
Editor, The Michigan Daily:l
LAW BALLOT (Note variations).
Q. Do you believe there is a fairly
high standard of honor and fairness
among the law students?c
Q. Do you know of any consider-I
able amount of cheating in the law
Q. Do you think that an honor sys-t
tem such as the engineers or medics
have would improve matters?
Note: To contrary. It would create
a jealous, selfish, suspicious attitude
among the students, which is not,
fortunately, now existing. Such a
condition seems to be the only
ground upon which to build success
in such a system.
Q. Do you cheat in examinations?"
Q. Would you report one who did,
"provided always" that no one should
know who told?
Ans. I do not know.
Note: Here too, the human element
must enter. If cheater is a friend,
or a popular man, naturally, one
would hesitate; especially if in-
former were in no way injured.
The average law student cares noth-
ing how his neighbor behaves.
A very small percentage of students
are jealous of others' grades.
We all admit that comparative grad-
ing is of very uncertain value.
The effect of cheating is only on the
standards of the department, which
are in the hands of the faculty-di-
rectly. No doubt, a duty rests upon
the studentsto uphold the standards,
but such a duty is so remote and al-
most abstract, that a breach of same
means the loss of time and concen-
tration necessary to do one's best in
Does it not follow, if conditions are
so ideal that they justify an honor
system, that they would also justify
the elimination of examinations? Why
not allow each student to state upon
his honor that he covered the work
as prescribed? This should accom-
plish the much desired result of giving
authorities assurance that their pupils
have covered the work properly and
have not gotten credits by the "plug,"
"dig," or "cram" route.

Moth Balls Help Mileage Question
Topeka, Jan. 20. - Whether 'tis
nobler to put the expensive gas-
oline in moth balls for safe stor-
age or to put moth balls in
the expensive gasoline for more mile-
age is no longer as much of a ques-
tion since various Kansas chemists
have undertaken the investigation of
preparations claimed to decrease fuel
cost. One chemist figures that 6 cents'
worth of moth balls gives $2.60 worth
of naphthalene, which is used in prep-
arations for motor car tanks to give
