The fellow, who steals in class recitations,
weakens himself, implicates his prompter and
deceives his teacher. .He may get a high
mark, hut that is a false showing. He may
have the favor of the toucher, but that is
treachery. He may have the friendship of
his coacher, but he cannot but come to des
pise the pilferer of a record, the taker of
others' knowledge. Some day the crutches
will be gone and then "and great was the fall
thereof." Let him fall.

Miss Mabel Turtle, for nearly seven years
executive clerk of the University, retired from
her olllcial position last Saturday evening.
During her term of service, she has acted, as
private secretary to the Chancellor, secretary
of the faculty, and has had entire charge of
the outer oflice, which has reached its present
high degree of system and efficiency under
her care. She has supervised the accredited
high school records and work, devised the
presont systematized plan of registration to
meet the growing needs, has had charge of
summer school registration, and the registra
tion of all new and unclassed students, besides
being herself a whole bureau of helpful infor
mation for students, faculty and state educa
tors. In addition she has been regularly in
trusted with all the University printing,
proof-reading, revising, etc., which includes
among many other duties, the revision and
printing of the annual calendar, the printing
"of all circulars sent from the University, the
blanks and stationery of all departments, and
the numerous bulletins of the experiment
station. The printing alone would occupy
the time of an ordinaiy person.
It is but due Miss Tuttle to say that she
never botraTed a single trust or confidence
that she was never found wanting in judgment
and discretion even in the minutest details,
and that she possessed that rare gift of being
a true friend to all, a partisan of no faction,
w public servant of masterly efficiency, a pri
vate confidant of unswerving fidelity. Stu
dents, faculty and her wide circle of friends
among the educators of Nebraska, join in
unanimous regrets at her withdrawal. It is
not expected that any one or two can be found
who will adecpuately fill her place in the office,
and nothing can efface the deep sense of per
sonal loss felt by the many who learned ito
know her by her works,
