"Situation is not our master"

Academic pressures—surmounted

The front page of the university paper carried a variety of interesting articles that afternoon. In the upper left-hand column an interview with professors revealed that cheating incidents were rising over what they had been in previous years, and that these incidents pointed to a fierce competitive sense among students.

On the right a report on the activity of the university job placement office indicated that students were putting the service to greater use than they had in prior years, but that there were fewer jobs to meet student qualifications.

A survey in the center of the page confirmed that at least for that university, first-year students tended to reflect the moral code of their peers rather than the code they maintained in their last year of high school while still living at home.
