Guilford College, N. C.
Not many mornings ago two of
our students agreed in Ilie opinion
that every man has his price. 1 hey
called it "rottenness" in politics,
but is it confined to politics or has
it even got into our college life and
especially into the societies?
Society spirit rightly directed
can be made one of the best and
most wholesome factors in college
life, but if allowed to go wrongly
it can creep into affairs where it
should never appear.
Although a member from each
society could talk an hour on the
virtues of his or lier society, vet
you will And that there is really no
difference. Each one stands for
the best there is in the literary and
social way. There are jnst as com
petent leaders in one as in the oili
er. Each hoys' societies lias won
its share of honors in debate and
Of course every student cannot
he on the debating teams or a lead
er in the college activities; but
every student can vote for the per
sons that are capable of doing the
most effective work. Leave off
voting for your best friends and
your society friends and vote for
those known for their ability. Do

Class Room Etiquette.
We are all acquainted—and
have always been —with the word
"don't." Don't do this and don't
do lliiit have been hammered into
us ever since—and sometimes be
fore—we emerged from the cradle.
I t has come to be such a common
and overworked word that there
seems very little use in applying
it to anything like classroom eti
quette. Most of the don'ts have
110 reason assigned to them —and
to make out :i list of the don'ts of
behaviour in classrooms with rea
sons would be far too great an un
But there are one or two
things that have appeared to me
to be worthy of a minute's consid
eration. The first of these is in
regard to the whispering of an
swers when a question is asked I
was in a classroom the other day
when our teacher asked me a ques
tion which I did not know. Five
distinct and different answers
were whispered in my ear. What
was I to do? Which one was 1 to
choose —for they all couldn't be
correct? Of course, I took a
chance and got the wrong one.
But was that quite fair? I cer
tainly think not. No matter if 1
did not know the answer, I would
much rather have it gradually de -
veloped and correlated with what
had already gone before, than to
have to choose quickly among five
bad answers —and not know what
f was talking about. It seems to
me that#every person in a class
has a distinct duty towards every
other person in this respect and
owes it to his neighbor to keep his
mouth shut while he is reciting.
The second don't is about throw
ing paper on the floor. No one
likes to come into a classroom the
second hour after Chapel in the
morning and find the floor littered
with crumpled wads of paper or
heaps of little confetti-like pieces,
and tracked from one end to the
other with stepped-on chalk. It
takes a whole lot from the spirit
of the recitation —and I think we
could all do better work if we paid
more attention to these things. So
