What is the trouble? The doubtful
state of mind seems due more to poli-
tical than business conditions. People
are becoming worried about the pos-
sible effect of recent inquiries and re-
velations of national prosperity. Some
question the honesty of our public life
in general and feel that government1
in America is "breaking down." Others
are less moved by evidences of de-
struction partisan spirit and fear of
what the pr.actical effects may be in
this year's campaign.

Dear Cowles:
She was in the upper study room of
the library yesterdiay. A piquant lit-
tle blue hat, with a blue ribbon done
around and fastened by a nickel buc-
kle on the right side of the front, al-{
most completely hid her bobbed hair,
brown, of which a little peeped under
the front.
She always laughed when she spoke
to. the girl in the brown hat on her
right, especially when she talked with
him who sat first beside, then across
from her.
Dark blue serge with blue ribbon
trimmings was her dress, scarcely
visible from my viewpoint because of a
coat with black trimmings.
She is small, but just right, and if
she sees this
"Maybe she'll write me,!
Maybe she'll phone me,'
Maybe she'll radio-"
and I hope she will anyway.

One's amazement is hard to ima-
gine, then, when one finds no less a
learned and august body than the
Faculty of the Wharton School hid-
ing down the dark corners of learn-
ing ready to stretch a string across
the halls of learning to annoy, harass,
and trip up the unsuspecting student.
At the March meeting of that body,
a motion was passed in regard to the
conduct of examinations and quizzes
that seems tottally unnecessary-and
its only utility, to use the vernacular,
as something to "rub in" on the
Wharton School student. The con-
text of the legislation was that dur-
ing such quizzes and examinations,
all unnecessary material brought to
the room where the latter was being
held was to be placed in one huge
heap at the front of the room. Wheth.-
er such material bore a relation to'
the examination mattered not, it could
no longer be placed under the seats
or similar pace, but was intended
to be kept out of reach of the wan-
dering clutch of the student.
For several months past, the seem-
ing tendency in the Wharton School
has been to work toward a closer re-
lationship between teacher and pupil,
while evident progress had been made
that would pave the way for a possi-
ble return of the honor system. But
such petty acts as these serve but
to widen the breach, and make the
point of complete understanding ats
far away as ever.
Such actions can never hope to
make a scholar of a man, if such is
their motive-for a feeling of repul-
sion is stimulated rather than any
added interest in the work. Only
the broadyrindedness and liberality of
most professors and instructors, in
what even they considered too radi-
cal a measure, is all that averted a
crisis in the :matter. But itis the act,
rather than its interpretation, which
leaves a bitter taste in the students'
mouth. Such a dictatorial piece of

Everyone told everyone else that that

Yet all the while that delightfully

her and regard her as his slave or his

rejoicing when she does come.
All of us enveloped in her warm
embrace feel the blood within us fow
faster, and our hopes, tarnished by
the gloom of winter, become bright-

For the first time in the history of
the University of Michigan, a debating
team won two unanimous victories.
Last night in the finals of the Central

defeated Chicago by the unanimous
vote of the judges. Although the Chi-

thorough preparation that Michigan

Mr. Renwick has been studying the
