Colombia la the Field with a Series
With the general wave of interest In
agricultural and In the need for a new and
vitalised country ttfe which Is sweeping
over our country , a demand has been made
upon Columbia to provide an opportunity
for obtaining knowledge and training In
scientific and eoonomlo farming.
This demand comes from the large num
ber of people who desire a practical edu
cation which will fit them to return" to the
land, where they may live under whole'
some surroundings and escape the oppres'
slve cost of living that is beoomlng keeuly
felt by everyone.
As a preliminary step In the direction of
establishing instruction In agricultural edu
cation in the proxmlty of New York,
course of thirteen lectures on economic
agriculture will be offered Under the
faculty of applied science at Columbia unl
verstty, beginning on Tuesday, January
18, and" continuing on successive Tuesdays.
Theae lectures, while dealing with scien
tific aspects of the subjects announced In

anniversary of tbe institution of the Honor
System of holding examinations at Prince

aminations beginning on the 27th ot this
month will be the eighteenth set held
without faculty espionage of any sort. Dur
ing these years there has been no question
of the unqualified success of the practice.
and it is believed that the very few cases
of cheating detected and punished have
been practically all that ever took place.
'I pledge' my honor as a gentleman
that, during this examination, I have
neither given nor received assistance."
That pledge, with the signature of the
student taking the examination, has
taken the place of the old system of hav
ing- profeeaora keep watch during testa.
It applies to every examination taken by
a studttat In Princeton university, but, of
course, not to entrance examinations,
taken before matriculation.
Princeon men consider themselves under
the obllagtion to report any cheating that
might come undor their observation In an
examination. . Trial of the accused Is held
by an undergraduate committee, and a
verdict of guilty results In the offender's

In 1803, when the system was inaugu
rated, there was a strong sentiment among
the students against the mode of con
ducting examinations then prevailing. Not
only was the practice of watching to
prevent and detect cheating keenly felt,
but the shame of the existing state ot
affairs was oonsidered highly derogatory
to the moral standards of the students
The students suggested to the faculty
that examination be conducted along lines
similar to those in the University of Vir
ginia, and on January IS, 1S03, the faculty
adopted a resolution which recognized the
repugnance of the students for cheating
and the desire to have the examinations
so conducted that they would be put on
their honor not to cheat. The r solution
abolslhed' faculty supervision and estab
lished the pledge.
Nowadays, if a professor Is In the room
during a test. It Is only to answer ques
tions that students may want to ask. The
men may leave the room and even the
building. If they wish; their pledge gives
them the utmost freedom.
The result of the system has been that
cheating Is far from the mind of the man
taking an examination. Home violation
have been- detected, probably all thosj
which took place, but they have been very
few and confined mostly to freshmen who
did not realize the full Import of their
responsibility and the reproach connected
with their offense. The Honor Hyitem is
a living Ideal held to by each student in
Princeton with a seal that brings it as
mar to absolute perfection aa such a
system can be brought.
