, The Cornhusker is out. No

us to bolievo that it is coming out
. on such and such a day. We
have ocular proof that it is out.
No more will we wake up in tho
middle of the night and ask our
selves, "When is the Cornhusker
coming out?" No more will that
question precede the erstwhile
popular one about the weather.

mutton woro temporarily delayed
on account of a difference of view
among tho girls as to the codo of
honor to bo adopted. This is a
mistako. So far as the, present
writer is nwaro, there i no dif
ferences regarding the code, but
much variation in the views re
garding the best moans of its
application. So far as the girls
havo considered the matter at all,
they agree that it is wrong to
choat or "crib" in a test or ex-,
nminatiou, to hand in as your
own work a lesson that someone
else has prepared for you; or to
"ptuff" your reports. We all
ngroo that thoro is altogether too
much of that kind of thing goiiu
on, that it has increased in the
last few years, and that the good
namo of our Alma Mater will
suffer if it is not stopped.
Thoro are several suggestions
as to the best way of lessoning
the evil, but they may bo classi
fied under two heads:
First An opinion has been ex
pressed by an advanced student
that nothing can be done by the
students themsolvos. (This view
wos now to most of us, and if it
should foil under tho eye of any
man or woman of the faculty, I
hope that it will bo considered
carefully.) This girl said that
she thought any reform must be
started by the faculty. More
careful supervision would over
come the evil so far as it could
be overcome, she thought; any at
tempt made by the students them
selves would only increase the
evil, us deception would be added
to cheating. She thought that
the "oribbors" were not. thought
loss, but deliberate wrongdoers,
and objected to any attemps to
"make them think" before they
cheat, as worse than useless. The
responsibility lay upon the fac-
ulty ulone, in her opinion.
Second The view jnoro com
ivonly held, so far as I can tell
from comments of the girls, is
that most of the cheating comes
from lack of appreciation of the
gravity of the offense, and that
it' public opinion can once be
aroused, the evil will be greatly
lessened. It is believed that the
students hold tho matter in their
own hands, that it is for them
to stop trying to cheat, and 'that
the first step is to make them
feel their responsibility to them
selves and to their school. No
one denies that the faculty must
have -a part 4n this, however. No
teacher has any right to tempt his
students to cheat, either by un
due laxity or by over-suspicion.
Oo-operation there must bo, in
the view of tho advocates iof this
plan, . and a largo - part of tho
burden rcfjts jiptm the students.
Thero , flgj Various, methods of
n.alring . tho plan concrete and
specific. Each of these has its
advocates. I will give all that I
know of, not because they all, or
any of them,- aro ideal, but in
order that the girls may bo think
iug about them, -and improving
upon them, or .making better
A. The plan adopfed by tho
men's fraternities, that of report
ing each other's offenses. Tho
girls do not at present favor this
plan, although"- it seems to the
present v.riter to bo bringing
some definitely good results.
, B. Reliant to bo placed entire

lies of the students) like the one
iel,d recently. These cprtainly in

would be the best, and a suf
ficient, means of checking dis
(hpnQst pollegc work.
. C. A pledge to bej signed by
each girl, once and for all, say
ing that she will not cheat; said
pledge to bo niade clear and un
mistakable and signed voluntarily
or not at all.
D. A pledge to be . signed on'

ten lesson that is handed in, stat
ing tlujt no help has been givon
or received u,pon it, This is the
plan followed at Randolph-Macon
Woman's College, at the State
University of 'Michigan, and vari
ous other institutions. It is fa-1
vorod by a number of girls here,
wlio feel that it would make a
good starting point. Others feel
that it would be an insult to
their dignity, and still others fear
that it would degenerate into a
mere form. Of course this Would
all depend upon tho way in which,
it was done. The southern people,
who certainly are quick to resent
anything which reflects upon
their honor, do not regard such a
pledge as un injury at all, but
rather as a safeguard to that
honor. Nor has it become a mere
form in any of the schools in
which T havo heard of its pres
ence. E. A pledge to bo signed every
time a girl registers; said pledge
to be entirely voluntary, not com
pulsory. This is. the ' plan car
ried out at some colleges, of
which the nearest is Bellevue. It
hardly seemed feasible at first,
and soW doubt was expressed
as to the 'co-operation of the reg
istrar f office. If tho girls favor
the plrni, however, we can have
a table off somewhere, wherever
we like, managed by ourselves
alone, where all girls will have

the opportunity to sign a pledge
to do honest wdrk while they are
here. We have full permission
of the authorities to carry out
this plan if we wish to do so. The
plan seems to combine some of
the best features of the two pre
ceding ones. It is far from be
ing ideal, but the majority of
the girls who have spoken to me
about it at all, seem to think that
it will furnish a better starting
point than either of tho others.
It will be a sort of a warning to
a girl when she first comes not
to register for more work than
,she can properly carry. Against
it is urged the view of the young
lady who thinks that the whole
burden lies upon tho faculty. She
