The Honor System and McMurry
Would an honor sstem siieh as Washington and

Theie tan be two sides o.isilv mi this matter. In lact
it would be extellint m.iteiial lor debating.
It is an eslablishtd lact that the stuUents .it Wash-
niKloii and Lee l'nieisity aie lai moie honorable and
conscientious than the students ol othei collcvs of the
nation. 'I hey have no one to urn the book store theie
but let the stude.its help themselves and put their money
in the cash iciri.stor. They usually lme a liarrel of
jipplos or someUimK like that out on the campus and
it is reK)itul that worthing is always accounted for
wlienlthe faculty checks up.
N(rot' oouik't Ji a system as this would be out
of the iiieslion because the chaiiKe would be too drastic
but a medium il it could be leachul would be ideal.
(It is an established lact that people when put on ho. lor
ur at least the maioiity aie tar ne.uei to Ihmiik model
than those who aie watched and distiusted instead.
Theie is a touch id childishness well hidden in almost
ou'i.U'iie. olten i.dled pnde thai causes the owner

Let's Put It Over!
It seems that Mc.Muny College is Koinir to dress up
next juai. A lighted lootball stadiuin and pavement of
the oval aie deluute objectives and some sources have
even hinted .111 otitdooi swimming Kol west of the iryin-
nasu(in. 'I his would do much to iinuove the pristine and ni

.sending a son or launhter to our student body don't
have the imvvvr to see ancient traditions ami the lieau-
tiful character that stands back of McATurry. They can
only see the muddy oval duve or the ramshackle bleach-
ers ami must diavv tlieir unpiessions fiiim this. In the
future the smoothly paved oval and the imposing- sight
of a new and complete stadium will certainly incieaso
the cdllege's apival to the outsider.
Now that the adnunistiation. the student associa-
tion and the classes are dom all 111 their power to help
the school in a inaU-rial way let's lend our mora! sup-
