the student body as is evidenced byI
the lack of interest in the spring
gamnes. The new council must devise
some means of inspiring a new in-
lerest it traditions are to survive.,
The rooming house situation must be
r".cmcdied. These are only a few ofI
the manifold problems which the Stu-!
dent Council must solve in the 'year3
1924-1925 if we are to consider its
.txperimnental stage entirely past.
At the opening of the' track season
a,,e'iy' year, we hear the complaint
that 'too few athletes enter com~peti-!
:ion for places on the squad. ' Aj
;mall track team, composed la'rgely
of stars seems to. have, become a ira-
dition at Michigan. In spite of this
Coach Farrell has continued to turn
out successful teams, but any failure
to win in competition has been caused4
by the scarcity of aspirants for the
track honors.l

WVe don't know when we've felt
so completely uninspired to our priest-
ly tank. We sit here, our fingers
' poised for action, but no words come.1
A new typewriter ribbon too.-
This melancholy ha~s been coning
on ever since day before yesterday.
It was th~en that we received this
poem' fron y ou~ng lyy, with these .sad
words under his signature. But you'd
better readt them yourself...
Some, bedazzled by the gleam of shin-
ing stones and clinking gold,
Make wishes that, such- be theirs 'by
4working hard with skill and stealth.

Today and tomorrow Michigan is
host to .x00 athletes from every part
of ;the country,' the attraction being
the annual interscholastic track and
field meet at Ferry Field. Most of
these mhen will within a few years be
students in sonic university, and it is
the University's hope that many of'
them will choose to make Michigan I
their alma mater.

Even though this is the busiest part'
of the college year it is to be hoped

not merely a temporary resting place.
The University Glee clubs have
completed one of the most success-
ful seasons in their long period of
existence as a musical organization.
A large measure of this success is
due to the organization and train-
ing of George Oscar Bowen who as-.
sumed the direction of the cus at
the, opening of the college y*r.
For several years Michigans ;Glee
'clubs have been mediocre, unfit re-

As a result of t i Worl, th ogan-

the Glee clubs took second place in

years was accomplished with com-
nlete success. Packed houses greeted
the singers at every performance, and

,Perhaps the statement of one of
he officers of the University repre-
:ented the situation when he said
liat the "University Glee clubs had
done more to advertise the University

is true, just so much praise must bel
accorded the work of Mr. Bowen.
In his recent specht on the carpus

scholar, made a statement tothe ef-
fect that "a nation is not judAed by
what it is doing, but by what its youth

compatible with American Intelligence,
that in as great an institution as ours
there is no definite compulsory course
in political science.

concerns of modern civilized man.

To0 The Editor:-w
I would like to take issue to the I
article concerning the Klan by J. E11
D., '24. I always question a person's
broad-mlndedness and "~fairminded-
ness" when he makes such statements
as "I am strongly inclined to think,
it is the work of an underclassman
of the mental trend of. the late G.
May I remind this authority thati.
the question of the rite (the burning"
crosses) would be made. clear if ' II-,
would read the Fiery Cross, the' oficl.
paper of the K. K. K. 'it is not
the case of "people say" or "it. is
supposed"-it is the fact ;that tale l
crosses symbolize the Klan order and
"100 per c9nt Americanism." (Even
they do not know what this means).
But the cross with its meaning to
Christian folk is usurped by this sel-
fish and discriminatory organization.
We will grant 'the gentleman that
the question arises-"What is beyond
it all. What' does this unrest sig-'
nify" It signifies that certain people
are dissatisfied with conditions and
would change thenm. But more than
this it signifies that the individuals
concerned believe it'.within their
power and duty to take matters in
hband if they see fit. The average
person realizes that when an organ-
ization takes law enforcement into its
hands that serious problems' ensue.
If it is doubted. that. the K. K. K.
stands for law enforcement, I would
be glad to furnish m'aterial from the-'
Fiery Cross itself, and from authori-
ties who do not deal in "anti-Ilan
propaganda." Such persons can be
E'ven igreiting that conditions
should be changed have we any rea-i
son to suppose that the Klan has the
right to do it in their own way with-
out endangering constitutional law?
The people. of the, U. S. realize that
evils exist bult they believe that such
methods as used by the K. K. K. are
conducive to 'more evils.
May I say that Oregon is but 1 out
of'48. .There are many others in thea
Union .which have not ,fared so well
at the hands of this mnighity and{
damned organization.
