"On my honor, I have neither given nor re-
ceived help on this examination"—that pledge
when signed means that the student considers
himself enough of a man or woman to be trusted.
Cheating is an adolescent trait, something to be
left behind when one comes to a society of grown
men and women such as exists in Riee Institute.
This society has honor for its code, and the Hon-
or System in the practical application of that
The Honor System originated in the Uni-
versity of Virginia in 1812 and has been used at
Rice since the opening of the Institute in 1912.
The fundamental concept of the system is that it
is a student code, interpreted and administered
by the student body with final approval being
given by the faculty. The students sign the hon-
or pledge! the students are bound by their honor
to report any cases of cheating observed; stu-
dent representatives elected by the student body
form the Honor Council which tries any accused
person and passes sentence*
To be effective, the Honor System needs the
whole-hearted support and co-operation of every
Rice mah and woman. The pledge must really
mean something when signed and all cases of
cheating should be reported. Then, and only
then, can cheating be eliminated.—M.P.
THE NATION'S college students are not being
permitted to forget that the United
States is straining every effort toward strength-
ening the national defense.
Men within the draft ages of 21 through 35
who are now registered in college have been aut-
omatically deferred from compulsory military
training at least, until July of next year, al-
though they will be required to register October
16 with all other men of those ages.

At the same time men and women of college
age have been urged by President Roosevelt to
continue college educations.
Nevertheless, the nation's collegians are be-
ing made to realize they are an important link
in preparedness plans.
Typical of defense messages to students at
scores of college was that presented by Dean
Virginia C, Gildersleeve of Barnard College, New
York. It is more important, said she, for students
to continue their college educations until needed
than to participate actively in helping their coun-
Dean Gildersleeve explained that should the
stream of students stop, the country would find
itself short of trained and educated citizens.
"Women are especially needed," she contin-
ued, "because now their brothers are going to be
occupied in sterner asects of national defense."
Dr. Remsen B. Ogilby, president of Trinity
College, Hartford, Conn., announced he wants all
students at his school to obtain motor vehicle op-
erators' licenses so as to be prepared, in event
they are called for military service, to drive army
automobiles or tanks.
Dr, Ogilby, a former chaplain in the army,
also called atention to courses in army sanitation,
radio communications and similar engineering
subjects as well as ground school and flying
University of California students were
warned by President Robert Gordon Sproul that
they will be suspended from college if they ac-
tively oppose the defense program.
"For those who prefer to fiddle while Rome
burns or to accelerate the pace of destruction by
building private bonfires of their own, I shall
have little sympathy," he said. "Indeed, I may
find it necessary to ask some of them to defer
their enjoyment of an education at the state's ex-
pense until the life and prosperity of the state
have been made secure by their more patriotic

to seek upperclassmen who would by
their advice and influence prevent
