Fletcher objects to the pledge which Is required according to the pre, ent plan of the aystem. lie thinks that the algfflUure of the student Is sulll-clent that he has not cheated in the examination. Fletcher says: "The adoption of an honor system In examinations In tho University lui been considered for several years. It has been voted on several limes and defeated. We understand It Ih to come up again before tho student body the llrst of next term. The students will be required to vote on a new proposition. Murely no undergraduate w ill object to writing the following words at the end of his paper: 'I pledge my word of honor that I have rceeived no assistance In this examination.' "It has been suggested that if the students are compelled to write such a phrase at the end of their papers It Implies that some of the students are deceitful. This Is exactly what It Is meant to Imply. iSut after this system has been In use for ten or llfteen years this implication will be false. To have a well-working honor system the student body has to be educated up to it."

This explanation was made by Leach to a committee appointed by the exchange, which reported at the regular meeting Tuesday night. Leach did not attempt to deny that the company was at fault. In fact, he said that the gas was bad and that the company knew it, but ascribed the cause to the poor quality of oil used In gasmaklng. Regarding the quantity, Leach informed the committee that the growth of Oakland and its suburbs had been so rapid that the company had been unable to accommodate the supply of gas to the demand, and therefore there was not enough gas to go round. Leach promised that conditions should soon be remedied. t APPOINTS ASSISTANT CORONERS IN ALAMEDA Coroner-meet Met of Hl Deputies.
