VoI.XVU No. 24
Our regular academic obligations are far more than merely attending classes,
studying lessons and taking tests. These are visible routinos which college students
adhere to and are aware of, but there are also virtuous obligations to abide by which
are indispensable and which many of us arc lacking.
Just as a building needs a strong structural foundation upon ’which to rest, so do
we, a® college students, need a strong moral found ati on upon which our conduct, b.-havi >
habits, and manners are to be based.
A student who is not devoted to h’S scholarly taskes is making school more diffic‘
for himself, but the student who does not reveal proper character and behavior is
offending all who work, study, talk* and associate with him. All of us have been taugir'fi
at some time in our lives, correct behavior and manners for the purpose of right .
acting properly. Why shield what wo possess-if it b* little or much?
Destroying property, marring and scratching walls, doors, and floorsj strewing
tables and chairs with rubbish and papers, acting childish and displaying unnecessary
ignorance in classes is not right. We know that it is improper and wrong to do such Ud
things, so why do them? Being respectful, co-operative, and mature is expected of
college students, so why not act on a college level?
Lately, unessential incidents such as these have been continually hinSering the
workers, faculty and students at Highacres. Spoons and dishes have been found in the
trash cans and in the furnace.
Chalk markings made a pathetic sight on thwalls and doors of a classroom. Delib
crushing of chalk and rubbing of blackboard Erasers scratched and marred one of the
classroom floors. Banana peelings, bread crusts and paper bits were strewn on the
tables and chairs in the cafeteria. Are such immoral, ignorant, and childish incidents
necessary? Definitely not. They are uncalled for and mi'St be . corrected, ¥e are colle,
students, not four year olds. Written and spoken pleas have beenstated, but # it
appears, to no advantage. If action speaks louder that words, then action it will
be. Remove such impeding barriers and reveal your true character.
