Not Only Are Papers Identical but In
Each the Answer la Wrong,
Are Not to Made Public
for Obvloua Reasons.
Rumor has It that nine Btudents
have left the university. Some say
theso students are tho victims of
troubles at homo. Others surmise that
their supply of tho wherewithal has
given out And still others contend
that an urgent demand for early
spring help on the farm 1b the reason
for their sudden departure.
The rumor, however, steadily In
sists that the men were dismissed
from the university The cause of
their dismissal we can trace no far
ther back than the recent examina
tion It id said that when a certain pro
feBHor read certain examination
papers of certain students in his
course, lie discovered that nine of
the said papers were not substan
tially but ielentlcall the same Ho
found that each paper contained tho
same answers figure for figure, pro
cess for process, word for word. Tho
answers began In the same way. They
were developed In tho same way.
And they concluded with tho same
answer. which was a wrong answer.
While It has not been learned whether
the professor actually saw anybody
cheat, ho did conclude that in the
work of theso students there was
both error and wickedness.
Further facts, Including tho names
of tho select nine are not made pub
lic. It Ib probably considered thai
their dismissal Is sufficient punish
ment without the Infliction of the se
verer penalty, public announcement
of the culprits. Barely an examina
tion occurs but what some student un
der the pressure of a brlBk demand
Tor learning, will sacrifice reputation,
honor and opportunity to get for his
Immediate use the coveted fact. Not
until the facts about "cribbing" and
the facts about "crlbbers" are made
fully known to the university public,
can this pernicious evil be Burpressed.
Whence, the publication of theso
meagre facts here
