GETTING ON
"I got by without getting flunked
out" is not an uncommon statement
heard in college corridors now-a-days.
Perhaps the persons making these remarks really do think they have been
clever in getting-by; evidently a college education means only to them
the receiving of as high a grade as
possible on a little white card with
the least effort possible. "Getting-by"
individuals must have as their motto
"give to the world the least you have,
and hope for the best to come back
to you." They look for full-value
returns from shady investments, and
they are perfectly willing to accept
the same. Their loss fortunate neighbors, the. "flunkies" are more honorable in that they bear the penalty
of their mistakes. Perhaps sometime
in later life the "getters-by" will realize they wero beaten at their own
game; sometime they may wake up
to the fact that people get from life
just what people put into life; that
bluffing and shamming is of no avail,
but true, honest service is what
counts.
"SPARE THE ROD AND
SPOIL THE CHILD"
Would honor pledged have more
effect on the student body than continued reminding of college traditions and laws? At every assembly
meeting students are reminded the
order in which they should leave. This
is disregarded, nevertheless, and
freshmen are seen rushing ahead of
the upper classmen just as though
nothing had been said. Why can't
the "sophs" give them a lesson? Why
arc they allowed to usurp so much
wicked authority? Freshmen of other
other colleges know their places;
while here, they care nothing about
keeping law and order, but brag about
how many laws they arc able to
break. A little hazing would not
harm them but might do good toward
making better students.
COLLEGE
NEWS,
Woodrow Wilson as world leader
and teacher was eulogized by Professor Hidley last week before the three
hundred freshmen, Referring to the
war?tlmo President as "the outstanding leader of the twentieth century,"
Mr. Hidley said that "although Woodrow Wilson will go down in history as
the Great War President, he deserves
to bo called the Great Peace President.
The constructive achievements of his
first throe years of office escape notice. Wilson, ho declared, was the
world's best-known soldier. His four
rules by which nations can live amicably were: equality of nations, abolition of territorial gain by conquest,
peace through understanding and
agreement, and reduction of armaments.
As a groat teacher, a college professor, and a college President, also,
Wilson should be known to the teaching world, the History lecturer said.
"It was Wilson's habit to enter a lecture promptly and to complete his
address on time. He used no notes
and was intensely impatient of stupidity."
ETIQUETTE
Among the various courses offered
by the modern college of to-day perhaps the least considered is on in etiquette. Of course etiquette is something of which we are supposed to
have, at least, the rudiments of before we enter college, but even this at
times seems doubtful.
There can be no doubt that such
a course, if offered, would have a
large registration. It would bo purely elective and should be open to all
students. It might well bo divided
into various parts each dealing with
a certain phase of the subject. This
part of our education should not be
neglected; it is something that we as
future teachers will be expected to
know. It is easy to do the right thing
if wo know when to do it. Such a
course as this would help us to know
when to do the correct thing and how
to do it. Why not create a demand
for such a subject along with one in
General Science?

COLOR HARMONY AND

A wonderful galaxy of brilliant
colors, hues, and tints formed a most
charming background for Miss Phillips, who on Thursday evening February 7, lectured the apostles of the
home-making art on "Color Harmony." Miss Gillott introduced Miss
Phillips and gave some interesting
sidelights for instance that the speaker was a noted authority and lecturer
in her particular line and was contemplating a trip to Now Zealand in the
interest of her art.
The lecture was exceptionally instructive and useful to women in all
walks of life for it explained "home
