It is the opinion of Hon. Ezra
Cornell "that students can apply
themselves to physical labor three or
four hours a day without detriment
to their studies." The result of the
labor system among the students at
Ithaca has demonstrated this: the
" working students" are the "prize
takers." The great difficulty is to
furnish suitable and profitable em
ployment to all who desire it. The
university has paid students for their
work about 10,000 per annum for the
last four years, and estimates that
they have earned about as much
more by employment obtained out
side of the institution.
