have been much pleased with the way the students have tried to maintain high standards of conduct this semester. The student body officials were not satisfied with making promises, but actually put their regulations into effect so that good behavior naturally followed. The committees of students who were appointed by them did such good work that there was no public display of disorder such as has at times hurt the good name and reputation of our school. The Representative Council was composed of thoughtful students who were wise in their deliberations and capable in presenting questions to their advisory sections. I he Student Body certainly deserves congratulation for what it has accomplished as an organization.
Can we say as much for the students individually? Naturally, yes. for the great majority; otherwise, the conduct of the whole could not have been satisfactory. But there arc far too many individual exceptions. As I talk to students about their troubles, I find that most of them are due to thoughtlessness and a subsequent attempt to conceal things. Violation of rules, misconduct, and deceit usually make trouble for many persons besides the original offender, and often bring grief and sorrow which last through life. When we try to excuse ourselves for these things as being merely childish pranks, we only deceive ourselves and pave the way for more serious offenses. In moral questions there is no such thing as a “white lie,” if we mean by that an excusable one. Standards of honor which make it necessary to tell falsehoods in order to shield some one else do not help. 1 hey merely increase the number of offenders. One can be honest without being a tattler. A guilty person will usually sec the advantage of making a trank confession and will in the end be grateful to his friends if they have persuaded him to take that course. There is, therefore, nothing to be gained by trying to cover things up.
I'he duty of each one of us is clear. First, be careful of your own conduct. If you have made a mistake, own up, see the thing in its right light, and decide never to commit that fault again. Second, help others to see the advantage of a frank statement of facts. I his course sets them right again and often saves an innocent person from suspicion. It is an old proverb, but still true, that honesty is the best policy.
