He said however that he had but' been unfortunate in being caught as "cribbing" is the rule rath er that the -exception among students at Earlham. He said that, if all the students who "cribbed" wero -dismissed from school the attendance would be cut down until there was hardly anything left but "sissies". He felt Ithat he had been unjustly treated in Ithat he was not dismissed irom school before the Wabash football Igame. lie saia mat oeturw mat. game was played he admitted to President Kelly that he had not won his credits fairly. He said that the authorities had allowed him to play in the game in the hope that he could help win for his school. He said that he had been admitted to Earlham this fall because he was I football player and that now the sea son was over the faculty was ready I to kick him out. The students admire Carey's manly admission and in chapel this morn ing there will be popular denomstra tion on the part of the students up holding Carey and denouncing the faculty. Prominent Student's Opinion. When seen last night, one of the most prominent young men in the athletic, student and social world at the college stated that he thought ! that the faculty of he college had aj grudge against Carey or they never have "fired" him. He further said, j that ever since Carey figured in the : kidnapping, episode at the college last year, when several Freshmen kid napped the Sophomore class leaders, in order to prevent them from attend ing the SophomoreSenior banquet, the faculty had been down on Carey and that they got him back again this year, because he was a football play er, and as the chances for a good team wero bright, they thought Car ey would be a tower of strength, and after he had practically won three games by himself during the season and was largely in other ways respon sible, for the victorious team, the' faculty had kicked him out. He said that he thought because they had a grudge against Carey they wanted to use him as an example. The Case of Eva Newsom. He said the faculty did not pay any attention or rather hushed up the case, last year when Miss Eva New- soni "cribbed" her graduating thesis, and which prevented her from accept ing the Tiryu Mawr scholarship, which the faculty had bestowed upon her. He stated that because she was a friend of several men on the faculty she was not exposed, and just be cause the faculty had a grudge against Carey they wanted to make an example of him. when they should of made an example of the first per son they cpught at it. lie also stat ed that if all the students of the col ic sre wore "canned" when they "Crib bed," there wo?ild not be one hundred 'jersons Iett in the whole school.
