in this whole discussion:
1. An honor spirit Is more to be de

spirit can only be' brought al)6ut thru
an awakened student pubjic opinion.
2. Handing in the work of another,
siuch as a''h'ornbor noto'bobk, as one's
own Is dishoiiorable. '
3. Cribbing, ortlm accepting of as
sistance thru any dishonorable means,
whether in recitation, test, or exami-
nation, is a practice unworthy of a gen-
4, Giving aid at a recitation, test,
or 'examination is contrary to tho. best
.college sentiment, as It sacrifices the
higher interests of the college to a
motive of false kindness.
" 5. A better spirit is advanced when
an instructor, if present at a tost or
examination, shows his trust in the
students by not making a point of
trying to detect dishonorable acts.
