raised, probably, the most objection
is his proposal to render void a de-
cisicn of the Supreme Court if Con-
gress repasses a measure deemed un-I
constitutional by that body. A lookj
at the past work of the SupremeI
Court in nullifying innumerable fool-
ish and ill-advised laws has convinced
the vast majority of people that it
is a very essential part of our govern-
mental system. To be sure, the British
system has no court having functions
similar to our Supreme court; there,
is no final tribunal in England to
pass upon the constitutionality of acts
passed by the Parliament. And the
British government, at least to all ap-
pearances has worked effectively for
a number of years. Whether it would
be advisable to remove the sting from
our highest court, however, is an-
other matter.
The most competent observers do
not believe that LaFollette has a very
strong chance of being elected. At best
he can only command a substantial
minority% One outcome of the Presi-
dential race, if he should gain a large
minority, has been given increasing
attention of late. It is this: if LaFol-
lette should gain so great a minority
that neither the Democratic or the Re-
publican tickets could command a
clear majority, the election would be
thrown into the House of Representa-
tives. Here, it is a forgone conclu-
sion, all parties would come to a dead-
lock; for LaFollette supporters have
already a balance of power in that
body. In the Senate, which, in the case
of a deadlock, elects a vice-president,
Charles W. Bryan, Democratic candi-
date, would undoubtedly receive the
balloti. Then. when inauguration time
rolled around and the House had madef
no choice, he would automatically be-
come President. In other words para-
doxically, a strong LaFollette vote
may lead to the inauguration of a Dem-
ocratic president-a Democrat more-

will have their representatives at the
Rensselaer centennial. Officials of;
scientific organizations and engineer-
ing societies throughout the world
will be present. Michigan, with its
technical school as the first state-sup-
ported off-spring of Rensselaer, willI
follow with particular interest the
ceremonies with which this centennial
day is observed.
There are few more pathetic sights
than that of a freshman who alights
from the train which has brought him
from familiar sights and faces into
the region of terrifying and heart-
rending, confusion and strangeness,
typical of the college town of which
Ann Arbor is a protoype. Yet the
worst feature of this situation is that
is arouses no pity from the calloused
and sophisticated sophomores and up-
perclassmen, or from the indifferent
and superior professors his com-
patriots in the quest for knowledge.
Usually' it rains, at least for a week.
More often than not his trunk fails
to arrive and there is trouble in get-
ting a room. Home and mother seem
far away-alas, too far. Then comes
registration with its endless round of
writing his name and adress on mis-
cellaneous cards, with its continuous
controversy concerning a suitable pro-
gram, with a day spent in comparative
nakedness on the track of Waterman
gymnasium. In this time the freshman
lays bare his soul and body, and
emerges-weary, yea, but triumphant.'
All of this is hard enough to take,
especially if there is no one to aid
him in arranging matters. But the cli-
max comes when it is necessary be-
cause of the size of certain lecture
sections and discussions to change
that monumental work of combined
art and cursing-his program. Just
when the point of adaption and sat-
uration seems to have been reached

Bona-fide news comes from the
book stores selling the tickets to the
Paul Whiteman concert Tuesday eve-
ning that practically all seats in the
house are sold excepting those in the
second balcony. There can be no
moral to the story, because the com-
mittee has constantly and insistently
been urging everyone to get their tick-
ets early to avoid the inevitable last-
minute rush. The only remedy now
is to be clever enough to get tickets

Dates for the four productions of
The Player's Club during the year
have been assigned by the Committee
on Dramatics--the complete mathema-
tical list of attractions will be re-
leased in a few days--and a call for
tryouts has been issued for their first
two programs.
The initial bill will include Shaw's
"How He Lied To Her Husband" and
Ben Hecht's "The Hero of Santa
Maria," one a sophisticated farce of
the author's typical unmorality, the
other a biting satire of typical Amer-
ican boobosity. Both are brilliant and
distinguished gdnre splays, and as
such deserve the best talent on the
campus to interpret them.
The second bill will consist of Dun-
sany's "A Night at an Inn," one of the
finest,:if not the finest, melodramas
ever written, while the companion
play, possibly 'ne of Schnitzler's "Af-
fairs of Anatol," has not been finally

porary One-Act Plays, 1921-22;" and
"A Night at an Inn" is published in
Dunsany "Plays of Gods and Men."
If it is not too childish, the commit-
tee suggests that 'the pieces be read
