bers. Third, those whose aims-if, in-
deed, they may be said to have aims-
are purely idle, and which by the very
nature of their activities tend to re-
duce the efficiency of their members.
But now that we have more or less
completely listed the undesirables,
what are we going to do about it? It
is folly to forget the natural appetite
of man for social intercourse. No one
wants to resort to the childish practice
of "telling the teacher." We cannot see
what a referendum would accomplish.
Our problem is not to re-condemn the
condemned. It is to get rid of them.
The most effective weapon against
these undesirable organizations is a
decided and overwhelming hostile opin-
ion. The effectiveness of opinion is at-
tested by the remarkable improvement
in class politics in the literary depart-
ment during the last four years.
The process of removing the parasit-
ic germs is indeed slow, but it is ac-
tually going on. And what a blunder
it would be to indiscriminately destroy
the vital cells and the disease germs
in order to save the body. Let us be
patient and persistent.
'It is noticeable that many of those
who most strongly advocate the abo-
lition of all campus organizations have
not been much in evidence as support-
ers of the Michigan TWnion. It is be-
cause they have not seen and under-
stood the deeper significance of the
We daily talk about campus improve-
ment and yet when it comes to a per-
sonal point, where we could materially
assist such a desired movement, we are
woefully lax. From time to time mer-
chants, students and certain organiza-
tions pass out their advertisements in
one form or another on the campus,
These are accepted, glanced at and
then tossed away. They accumulate at
the corners and detract greatly from
the general appearance.

Suggestions for a Cure.
The first step, then, in the solution
of the problem of campus over-organi-
zation is a classification. What organ-
izations belong in the category of par-
There are at least three kinds that
may come under this condemnation.
First, those which serve no useful pur-
pose. They are probably conceived
with no definite goal, or if they have
a real end, it is not a laudable one.
Every organization, in order to justify
its existence, should be in a degree cul-
tural, or be directly or indirectly de-
signed to improve intellectual, social,
moral, religious, or athletic conditions
of life in the university, and should be
moving forward. Second, those which
are in membership and purpose prac-
tically a duplication of a worthy or-
ganization; which straggle along and
do no good commensurate with the
