The honor aystem is tha best!
poasible solution that has been
found ao far. No matter what
typa of system ia used, avery stu-
oent is strictly on his honor when
to an examination. The
attitude of the atudent body aa a
whole haa mora to do with the in
dividual cozkception of honesty
than any other one thing. If a
stuknt goes on examination and
finda Ijther students cheating, it
ia much easier for him to recon
cile himself to cheating also than
it ia for him when ha is on a class
where no one else is trying to |
obtain information dishonestly.
When a student finds that cheat
ing is nijt going on among the
other students and that it i»
frowned upon by them, he quickly
receives the idea that he is not
wanted if ha continues in his un
derhand manner.

Do Aw«y WWi Grades
Hw> Cheater Cheated
Aren't we ever goiag to g»ow
up? Do we ahraya have to be
si'oMed or rewarded when we do
something bad or good? That is
: just ahout the present aituation in
I America cullegea. We ara graded
I for everything we do. If we ara
I able to make tha iastruei^r
1 lieva that we are doing our work
I well, we receive an A. Lf we
I fail to impreaa him well, we re-
I Clive a failing mark. If we -re
; juat ao^, we reixive a mark
somewhere Utweon A ari! F. A
system .'ike th's d«s more harm
than good, for it makea studenu
ain f.>r marks alone and u.>t for
what they should be getting from
the course in whicii they are en
rolled. snd for which th«y are
paying money.
In the business world today,
does the employer grade hia em-

t*ke an employer long to recog
nise the abilities of hia enployce«.
When a student leaves the col
lege world, that is the situation
into which he is projected. He
haa to i.' his work along with
other workers just as he did in
college—but he is not told every
few weeks that he is doing A
w.>rk while hid fellow workmen
are doing only average or C work.
I He has to ko.^ for himself if he
is doing hL work well. And if 1
' he is not, he had better rhanire
his attitude an^ ''nRtill sooie more|
energy in hini. or else. Is
the college system of grades |
training ua for such a world?
Perhaps there is nothing more
in a college students life that
causes him cheat on examina

grades so that he may be able to

Famous golfers like Gene Sararea, Helen Hicks, Lawson
Little, and Ralph Guldahl prefer Camels. They have
found that costlier tobaccos do place Camels in a class
apart. Listen to Ralph Guldahl, National Open Champion:
■Tve stuck to Camels for 10 years,” he says. "I smoke lots
of Camels and they never jangle my nerves."
And millions of Americans prefer Camels day after day—
making them the LARGEST-SELLING cigarette in America.
