A REAL DUTY.
With tho apiironch of oxamlnatlon
tlmo tho odltorlnl columns of collogo
nnnors nro filled with discussions of
tho question of student dishonosty;
varloiiB plans aro proposed for tho
reform of tho terrlblo conditions that
aro supposed to oxist, nnd tho genornl
condition of studont honesty Is paint
ed In about tho darkest tonus that
could bo Imnglned. It Is very doubt
ful, however, If thoro Is any cojii
munlty whoro thoro is so little dis
honesty ns in tho avcrngo collogo com
munity. To bts Hiiro thoro aro always
a cortaln number of people In overy
community that not only havo no hon
or of tholr own but euro nothing for
the roputatlons of those whom tholr
actions may affect. It is tho naturo
of tho college community that those
isolated actions nro thrown Into ro
lief nnd attract much moro attention
than they deserve.
Thora Is ono phaso cf tha question,
howovor, that should .havo attention,
as n great deal of Injuatlco is allowed
to oxist. Thoro aro certain professors
who tako no real precaution whatever
to prevent cheating in oxamlnatlons

and contend that they prevent cheat
ing by putting tho students on tholr
honor. If tho whole school could he
' conducted upon tho honor system nnd
a strong' feeling of student honor and
responsibility could bo developed it
might then bo perfectly proper for
professors to tako this attitude, but
under present conditions It Is a gross
injustice to those'students who deslro
to bo perfectly" honest.
If students aro In the habit of try
ing to got their work through dis
honest methods, It is not going to be
sufficient to keep them from doing so
to remove all restraints and claim
that they aro upon tholr honor, tft
results, as any student Is willing to
testify who has' carefully watched
conditions, In nothing moro than gly.
Ing overy student who has any deslro
'ot cheat freo rein to do aB much as
It is essentially unfair to tho stu
dent who wishes to do his work lion?
estly to place him In Buch a position
as this. It Is a most frying position
to see students all about bno cheating
t successfully and -yet while having ev-
'ery opportunity to do so to refrain
because of moral principles,'

In this way not only much cheating
will bo prevented but those who do
Ulrc to do right will not have ob
stalces thrown in their way.
AT WI8CON8IN, TOO.
The University of Wisconsin is at
tho preson't time facing a condition
of affairs very similar to that which
Is encountered at Nebraska. A vory
small percent of tho students of the
school hnvo by theli' actions brought
dlsgrnco upon tho school nnd now tho
matter is beforo tho authorities of
tho school for action. Tho Wiscon
sin cardinal comments on the affair
"There Is no gain in minimizing tho
quostlon. Every year brings us nn
element small thojigh very vfsiblc
two per cent of a class at tho outside
with cultivated thirsts. Thoro is no
way of filtering this element from
among the entrants of an open state
university. Wisconsin has no pro
tection against tho exaggerated dis
credit they bring upojn her, except
tho approved policy of ticketing them
out, when tholr offeuBo grows flag
rant enough to stand In evidence.
There Is a less vicious reveling ele
ment the youngsters bring hero an
inborn tondency to make fools of
thomeslvos, nnd a senso of responsi
bility Inadequate for Wisconsin. To
prop them wo hnvo crying need of
better living facilities and above all,
an enlnrged and solvent union, on tho
planB of Chicago's Reynolds club, to
compete for tho unlvorslty with tho
attractions of down town."
TO GROW RICE ON THE CAMPU8
Native Plants Will Blossom During
the Summer Season.
The university will this summer re
peat the experiment of throe years
ago by growing n small patch of rlco
on tho campus: Seed for tho plants
has been received from southern Lou-
I want a hundred freshmen to put
"P 2 bits apiece
this week... I want
iBana and It Is oxpected that a crop
will be harvested late In tho summer.
Tho work of growing tho rice will
bo under tho direction of Dr. Walker
of the botanical department. Three
years ago rDr. Walker experimented
with rice and managed to grow a
small bedjof the white' stuff near tho
greenhouse on tho city campuB. The
plants blossomed In tho height of
tholr development during state fair
week and tho fact that rlco was being
actually grown In Nebraska soil
brought many visitors to tho campus.
This year a similar small patch will
bo sot out near tho green houses.
The seed will flrtjt bo allowed to germ
inate in tho greonhouso and tho
plants will not bo put out of doors
until thoy have acquired a height of
