UYUNIYERSITIES NOW
BOAST HONOR SYSTEMS
[ICHIGAN AMONG LATEST TO
ADOPT PLANS IN
EXAMS
An investigation of the country's
niversity newspapers for the last few
aonths discloses the fact that Mich-
gan has not been alone in its at-
empts to come to a conclusion on the
dyisability of introducing the honor
ystem.
A simple classification may be made
universities in regard to their at-
itude on the matter of permitting the
tudent body to follow its own in-
linations in regard to whether or not
, cheat on examinations. There is,
rst, the large number of schools
rho, not having the system now, say
othing of it. Then there are the in-
titutions which now employ the sys-

and when examination time comes
placards are posted about the campus
and little slips are enclosed in exam-
ination tablets bearing the legend, B2.
At no time during the 'stress of the
critical period of the semester is the
student allowed to forget that he is
pledged to a loyal upholding of the
honor of himself and classmates.
The University of California is aim-
ing for a better working of the sys-
tem than it has apparently displayed
so far. A committee has been ap-
pointed by the student council to in-
vestigate and take steps that will
bring about its more successful ap-
plication in the future than has been
true in the past. A publicity cam-
paign is to be carried on looking to-
ward improvement by education. The
duties and privileges of the honor sys-
tem are to be laid before the student
public, and speakers are to discuss:it'
on the campus and explain it in detail.

Committee Looks After System.
Northwestern has had an honor
committee appointed to look after the

m and find it satisfactory. They, maintenance of the system. The com-E
ake no mention of it in their pub- mittee is typical of those in use in
cations, accepting it as an everyday several universities and consists of
ature of their existence which calls two members each of the three upper
r no comment. Princeton i's a strik- classes and the freshman member of
g illustration of this class, the honor the student council. Its duty is to
rstem now in use there being of such hold regular meetings, hear evidence,

tion to report any infraction of the
rules. 3. Freshmen are not admitted
under its working.
Ths system has not proved effica-
cious, and an investigating committee
reports that the sole and chief diffi-
culty lies in the unwillingness of stu-
dents to report their fellows. A hot
campaign has been carried on lately,
those opposed to the system circulat-
ing a petition to have it abolished and
a strict proctor system instituted, and
the freshman class having circulated
a petition to be included under the
system.
A questionaire covering the value
of the system to the students and the
attitude they take toward cheating has
been circulated but tabulated reports
are not yet available, and it is a close
question as to whether the system will
be retained.
Washington is also holding a ques-
tionaire, the purpose of it being to
determine the advisability of insti-
tuting the system.
Kansas and Oklahoma Against It
Direct opposition to the system has
been manifested at Kansas and Okla-
homa. At the former, the university
senate held an investigation of the
system and advised against it, on the
grounds that there would be many
willing to take advantage of the op-
portunity for getting through exam-
inations on the' strength of someone
else's work.
At Oklahoma, a vote on the system
resulted In its defeat by a majority of
82, 450 votes being cast for it and 532
against. The system advocated, con-
sidered failure to sign the pledge at
the end of examinations as an infrac-
tion of the rules.
The Honor System at Michigan
The honor system at the University
of Michigan has been periodically ad-
vocated, and used for some time in
several of the departments of the Uni-
versity.
The Medical school has had it for
some years, while the Engineering
college but recently put it into use.
The Student Council held a ques-
tionaire on it late last semester, which
showed a sufficient number in favor
to adopt it in the Literary college.

a.ge as to amount to a tradition.
Directly offsetting these silent folk
who are content with their situation,
whether it be one of self government
or faculty supervision, there is the
large quota of universities seeking
more light on the matter. They con-
sist of those who already have used
or are still using the system, but are
liscontented with its practical work-
ings and are stormily debating the
:uestion of its abolition or continu-
ance, such as Minnesota, and those
who have never tried the plan and
are engaged in controversy over the
probable success of its introduction.
Ohio State Has System
There is still another group which,
having the system, is employing its
imagination and knowledge of human
iature to make -and keep its applica-
ion efficacious.
Ohio State university is one of the
Last. It adopted the honor system in
1916 and has a novel method of re-
minding the university public that it
is on its honor during examinations.
The terse motto, B2, has been adopted,

decide on' the guilt or innocence of
the accused, and recommend a course
of action to the student council.
Pennsylvania anticipates the em-
ployment of stringent measures to
punish violators as a means of
strengthening its system. There, also,
more publicity is to be given the
workings of the plan, with an aim to
instruct freshmen particularly as to
what it means to the university. The
authorities complain that the first
year men fail to realize the import-
ance of strict adherence to the rules
laid down, and of refraining from crib-
bing in examinations.
Minnesota Debates Its Retention
Minesota, which has had the honor
system in operation since 1912, is fin-
ally placing it before the student body
for a decision as to whether to con-
tinue or drop it.
The salient feature of the methods
employed at Minnesota are these: 1
The pledge that the student has neith-
er accepted nor given aid must be
signed at the end of the examination
paper. 2. Students are under obliga-
