T1he editor of an eastern college
paper wrote to the editor of the Chi-
cago Daily Maroon for the latter's
opinion on hazing, and in the course
of his letter expressed the typical
eastern college idea of freshman de-
pendancy, which the Maroon pub-
lished. The eastern man tells of
Princeton, where a two weeks' hazing
period was abolished, and now finds
"the freshman class gradually en-
croaching upon those customs of
long standing in a manner which bids
fair to undermine the whole relation
between upper and lowerclassmen."
Don't laugh yet-just wait. "The
benefit of hazing to develop a deeper,
more dependent-upon-each-other spir-
it within the freshman class is un-
doubted. The insidious and hardly
preventable attempts of freshmen to
mix generally and ' associate with
sophomores and juniors will work just
opposite from a deep class spirit."
The eastern editor has any number
of historical examples to back up his
statements. Persecution or lazing, as
you will, any race hounded by a tyr-
ant has always been characterized by
its deep class spirit and consciousness
But that is not the attitude of the
college of today. Here in the west
the freshman is made welcome. What-
ever hazing there is, is usually done
by a few spirits who haven't gotten
the real college idea yet. There are
freshman customs, traditions, which
are of great value to the first-year
class, but there is nothing of that
petty persecution which is so condu-
cive to "deep class spirit."
Out in the wild and wooly west
those "insidious" attempts of fresh-
men to mix with upperclassmen are
welcomed. That makes the university.

IN RE PRO BONO PUBLICO
Thursday night we attended a con-
cert in Hill Auditorium. A famous
artist held the stage, and the big
building was crowded to its capacity.
Good construction has made it pos-
sible for the auditorium to be prop-
erly ventilated under conditions simi-
lar to these, yet Thursday night the
heat and foul air became so oppres-
sive that many patrons (after having
paid a good price for their seats) were
forced to leave before the first number
We had intended commenting on
this fact, but Pro Bono Publico fore-'
stalled us with a communication which
may be found in another column of
this issue. Pro Bono, in places, is
rather forceful in his remarks, and
he sat on the first floor at that.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Ypur representative has handed me
a copy of the "Military Training Is-
sue" of the Gargoyle and asked me
whether I wished to comment upon
it. I find it hard to take offense at
the numerous shafts aimed at me in
it, though both in temper and in hu-
mor they appear to leave something
to be desired. My students know, if
others may not, that matters of par-
tisan interest relating to the great
war are scrupulously excluded from
my class-rooms, and the almost too
obvious attempts to make it appear
otherwise betrays the general source
of such a base insinuation, which, be-,
ing unsigned and irresponsible, is so
much the less easily nailed.I

Some people attend choral union
concerts because they enjoy the con-

hope to learn something-be educated

thing to do. However, the writer ven-
