Procrastination lias been called
'•the thief of time." Others have
added that it was worse than a
thief—a murderer and that which
it kills is not only time but also
the immortal soul. If these state
ments be true there is probably
more time stolen and more souls
killed around a college than any
other one place, for it seems that
there is one of the easiest places
to get in the habit of putting oft"
things. We put oil' everything im
aginable. Franklin sail "Never
leave that till tomorrow which
you can do today." But it seems
evident in several instances that
"we never do today that which
we can put off till tomorrow."
When we have a certain amount
of outside work assigned in any
course, so many of us wait until
the night previous to begin it. We
say "Oh, I have right much time
and I'll just do something else
now." Time goes on, the assign
ment comes due but we are not
prepared. Can we wonder that
our teachers become vexed or even
angry? It seems that they are
justified and yet we remark that
"he or she crawled the crowd."
If we search the pages of his
tory we will not find a single in
stance where a man who failed to
do his daily task ever won a great
place in the world. Cervantes
said "By the streets of 'By and
By' we arrive at the house of Nev
er." The man who always intends
to do something is usually the one
that never does it. The person to
he admired in college or out of
college is the one who is never
too husy to perform his task; and
the one who realizes that there is
danger in delay.
Bight well has it been said that
"Procrastination is the thief of
time," for as a thief steals that
which belongs to some one else
and takes it to himself, so does
procrastination take that which
belongs to the present and give it
to the future. And as a thief
must answer for his crime, so
must procrastination answer for
its folly. If we get in the habit
of putting off tilings while we are
in college we will reap the effects
of it when we get out of college, i
When we get out into the busy
world we will have problems to
face that cannot be put off. I>ut
how can we do otherwise than
put them off. if that is what we
have been practicing while in col
lege? Don't forget that the hab
its we form in college are the ones
that will go with us through life
and it' we put off things while here
we will more than likely keep it
up when we get out into other
fields of activity.
LETTERS TO GUILFORDIAN.
(Publication of letters does not neces
sarily imply that their sentiments
are endorsed by the Board.)
An Old Custom at Guilford.
There was once a rule at Guil
ford that only the Juniors and
Seniors could sit in the middle
pews at church on Sunday morn
ings. The lower classmen were
supposed to sit across the aisles
in the side pews.
While litis was once a custom
here no one would recognize it to
day. On Sunday mornings as
many Freshmen file into these
pews as do Juniors and Seniors.
What little distinction there
might have been in 1 liis is now
lost and we often see the Juniors
and Seniors sitting in the side
pews while certain important in
dividuals (known hereabouts as
"rats") occupy the more promi
i nent seats.
Every one at (1 nil ford College
believes in democracy and no up
perclassman would mention litis
to a Freshman, but every Fresh
man should remember that he is
not the one fo break customs. If
he sits in these seats while a low
er classman he cannot appreciate
this privilege later as he could if
he were fo wait and earn it:. Some
time if the custom is preserved,
he will he able fo gain this privi
lege which is due those who have
paid the price and he will then he
able to appreciate it.
