The Honor System at the Univer
sity of South Carolina is something
that every alumni and every student
is proud of. Indeed they should be
proud. As seen in the "History of
the Honor System at South Carolina
College," there has been a system of
honor here since the founding of the
college in 1805. It has gradually de
veloped until we have our present sys
tem of honor.
The honor system as we speak of
it daily on the campus means, that no
student shall receive aid, which effects
his or her class standing, in any unfair
way, shape or form. This refers to
the everyday classes as well as to the
examinations. It means also that
every student is bound to report every
other student who he sees receiving
aid in an unfair manner. This is no
little thing and every student should
think it over seriously.
Last year the mode of procedure in
the trial of a man who was suspected
of unfair practice was changed. Here
tofore the class to which the suspected
one belonged tried him. But since
the college has become a university
it was seen that this system would not
work successfully. Now we have what
is called "The Honor System Com
mittee." It is compos d of one mem
ber from each class aptd acts as an
investigating committee. If upon in
vestigation the committece finds the
student reported to them guilty, it in
turn reports to the student body, and
the student body acts accordingly.
It has ever been the aim of this
institution to send forth men who are
not only perfected in scholarship, but
also ever mindful of the obligations
of truth and honor. Her highest les
son might well be summed up in the
"Who misses all,
Who wins the prize,
Go lose, go conquer
If you can;
But if you fall or if you rise,
Be each-pray God-a gentleman."
The new administration building,
for which the Legislature appropri
ated $30,000.00 last year, is under
construction. It is going to be a
handsome structure and will be a great
addition to the University. We think,
however, that the Trutees could have

Prof. G. B. Moore, in Eethics, Sat
urday morning was asking Senior
Cooper to illustrate the difference be
tween wish and will by an example
from Shakespeare, and spoke thus:
"Who was it that Lady Macbeth
wished to murder, and why did she
not will the deed ?"
Senior Cooper-"She wished to
mur(ler Hamlet, but could not do it
because he was her husband."

Yesterday at the home of the bride,
on Sumter street, was solemnized the
marriage of Miss Sarah Briggs Swaf
field and Mr. Martin Capers Dyches,
the quiet, impressive ceremony being
performed in the presence of the im
mediate family and a few relatives by
the groom's brother, Rev. J. W. H.
Dyches, D. D., pattor of the Baptist
church in Keysville, Va.
The house was beautifully decorated
for the occasion. The wide reception
hall, extending the length of the house,
was done in gold effect with long
stalks of yellow cannas and sheaves
of stately goldenrod paneling the
stairway and the walls and bright gold
dahlias filling bowls and jars every
where. In the parlor, where the cere
mony was performed; graceful smilax
draped the walls and white and pale
pink roses were everywhere in pro
fusion. Back in the dining room a
combination of pink and 'deep red
roses was used with most'artistic ef
fect and the table from which re
freshments were served was banked
in the centre with them and was light
ed with brightly burning red tapers
held in quaint old silver candelabra.
The bride was given in marriage by
her brother, Mr. William C. Swaffield,
and was unattended, the ceremony be
ing simple in every detail. She wore
a smart tailored suit of green and
blue invisible check voile in one of the
new models, with a stylish hat com
bining in Frenchy style tile two colors.
On the afternoon before her mar
riage the bride-elect was at home to
her cousins and a very few intimate
friends at ai afternoon tea, the affair
being quite informal and private.
Mr. and Mrs. Dyches left yesterday
afernoon at i o'clock over the South
ern for the mountains, where they will
spend several weeks before returning
to Columbia to make their home.
Mr. Dyches is an alumnus of the
University and has continued his con
nection with the University as mar
shal. Recently he has purchased an
attractive home on College sreet and
he and his bride will go immediately
to housekeeping on their return to
The bride is widely known and
much admired in Columbia, and her
marriage, though it was exclusively
private, was of much interest to her
