CLEARING UP A
MATTER OF HONOR
In most of the discussion of the athletics situa
tion during the fall quarter there was a genuine
effort on the part of those participating to
remedy a situation which was encouraging stu
dents to lie and encouraging the campus to con
done that dishonor.
Many of the suggestions for relieving the situa
tion have ignored the possibilities of prosecuting
to the limit those who might have violated the
regulations as they stand now
To the supporters of the letter of the present
law this refusing to report to the campus au
thorities the flagrant violations, ever referred to
mysteriously, appeared immoral and weak. All of
the reference to athletes' Ivine ought to be "clear
ed up" presumably by investigation for the
sake of the boys being so blanketly accused, and
for the sake of the University.
It was the hope of the other side that, without
ruining the lives of the students, good men as well
as good athletes, who might have gotten involv
ed, the present arrangement itself might be re
vised. The fact that" the vast majority of the
campus felt that it would be unmerciful to "kick
out" those good men who, they could easily
