The definite questions to be submit-
ted to vote must needs be selected
carefully that an opportunity may be
given toexpress opinions as to the real
issues involved. In this respect we
believe the questions which our com-
municant proposes to submit are open
to serious criticism. One issue which
we believed has been definitely raised
is whether or not the University Y. M:
C. A. should be under the control and'
direction of a national organization
when it is carrying on campus activi-
ties of'Varibus hinds. An expression
as to this is not provided for, either di-
rectly or indirectly. Another' issue is
as to whether the Y. M. C. A. should bie
closely restrictedr to purely religious
work and be required to give up other
activities. There are probably many
who believe that both the Y. M. C. ,A.
and the Union should erect buildings
and such a statement would not fully
express their views as they might
insist: that the Y., M. C. A. structure
be one designed solely for religious
work without provisions that would'
make it a social center. For such a
view the questions suggested1 would
provide no means of expression.
Whe would not desire to see such a
referendum held until the Y. M C. A.
has stated its side of the case. Up to
this time no official statementhas come
fromn the association officials. Con-
tinued silence, based on no necessity,
should not be allowed to chek action
but ample time should be allowed for
the Y. M. C. A. to state its case.

NEW HAVEN, CONN., Dec. 13.-In a
statement made to the Yale Daily News
yesterday hamp Clark, speaker of the
1ouse of Representatives, said that a
teacher, like a poet, is brn, not ade.
Of his "college professors, the speaer
remarked that some of themr were ex-
cellent teachers and trainers of youth
some of them misfits; and that the bes
and most serviceable one that he had
was a. drunken, strolling Englishman,
but a born. teacher.
Mr. Clark also stated that "There is
a great deal of time wasted at college
by studying things,,that can be of little
service to the average citizen." "The
average college curriculum needs over-
hauling," said he. "The college pro-
fessor who does not arouse in his pu-
pils a love of learning is not worth his
salt. The chief advantage of college
life to a boy is that lhe learns a great
deal° by absorption, which- is the eas-
iest way to acquire knowledge that I-

)uir Attitude Toward the Y. 'I. C. A.
The proposal to ascertain the cam-
pus sentiment as to the Y. M. C. A.'s
activities by means of a referendum
rote is commendable. As a means of
letermining the attitude of the univer-
sity body toward matters of campus
nterest the referendum is practicable
is well as theoretically attractive. Th't
)rivllege of expressing, our beliefs and
desires is within our power even
hough we cannot decide what is to be
lone. This a properly conducted ref-
xrendum would accomplish-provided
.he university body will interest itself
n1 the questions involved and use the
allot. If it will not we would at least
letermine that there is no student sen-
,iment on the question. Let the' Stu-
lent Council take this matter in hand
trid give to the university an oppor-
unity of expressing its opinions.
