Have you ever noticed how many students
boast of the little amount of work that they do,
how they "never crack a book," how they propound upon the theory that college is merely a
social institution, and then, having heard them,
looked at their standings? It is very odd, but
nevertheless it seems that these eternally indolent collegians make the best student standings. Their eternal indolence is merely a sham,
covering earnest study because they are ashamed to admit it.
There are very few students who will willingly admit that they spend a good portion of their
time following scholastic endeavors. Many of
their professors receive impression that they
