made absurd by the nineteenth amend-
ment. Plural voting, hardly an Amer-
ican institution has found a place in
our politics.
If women are not capable of stand-
ing by themselves, or makingstheir
own decisions, the only benefit that
ever could have been hoped for in
giving them the suffrage will never
be reaped. Should the example set
in Texas continue, women's suffrage
might well be discontinued. Men in
the past have been quite able to
make their politics rotten without
being given the double advantage of
hiding their corruption behind the
skirts of the woman in office. All
chivalry is forgotten in politics.
NEWSPAPER ETHICS
In these days when trials of the
most sensational nature are occupying
front page banners and. column after
column of space in most metropolitan
dailies, the positioon of Walter Lipp-
man of the New York World, as out-
lined in his speech here, seems to be
somewhat like that of Moses, who
saw the promised land, but was un-
able to reach it.
The promised land, to Mr. Lippman,
is a land where newspapers print
such material as is contained in re-
ports of sensational trials only as
"social instruction," viewed from an
educational attitude and not for the
benefit of a degraded public eternally
on the watch for debased stories of
the worst phase of human nature.
Perhaps Mr. Lippman's goal is closer
than that of the reformers who would
abolish the crime story entirely, but,
under present conditions, it it still far
in the future. Pessimists find ample
encouragement for their attitude in
the mounting circulation figures of
the "yellow" journals and the small
support given to newspapers which
are attempting, for the good of the
community, to give the public news'
that is fit to print.
Mr. Lippman's attitude seems to be'
founded on the supposition that the
public merely demands to know what
trials of the sensational type are
about, and will be satisfied, as well
as benefited by, reports of an educa-
tional nature. If such a supposition
is true, this course of action would
solve the problem, but the facts seem
to indicate that the majority of the
public is looking for complete details,
-the more sensational, the better.
The public craving for news of a
sordid.nature must be eliminated be-
fore newspapers, except for a few
notable exceptions, will print only the
news that attains a real standard of
decency.
Those papers which are attempting,
despite financial losses, to contribute
to the ultimate success of this move-
ment, deserve the support of all those
who would like to see the stories of
murder, assault, divorce, and other
trials removed from the limelight of
newspaper publicity.

Night Editor-SMITH H. CADY, JR.

Last night, friends, there was held
in University hall what must have
been one of the most satisfying events
that has taken place this year. A
number of ladies argued with another
number of ladies. Both sides, we be-
lieve were unusually well suited to
combat the other. The outcome goes
a long way toward solving the age-
old problem of what happens an irre-
sistable force meets an immovable
object.
We once stated in this department
that there was no justified motive
ever connected with a debate, out-
side of giving a few people something
to waste their time over. We hereby
formally detract that remark. There
is a very definite purpose which we
in our haste overlooked. There can
not be any more fitting form of ath-
letics, indoor sports, occupation, or
what you will for tle modern co-ed
than debating. We rhust amend that
by saying that this is only true when
the debate is participated in by mem-
bers of that sex, exclusively. Other-
wise it is grossly unfair.
We were unable to have a reporter
cover the affair for this department,
but we are very curious to know how
these things are judged and run. In
the average debate, of course, the
team whose logic is soundest and
most convincing wins. This could
hardly be the standard of last night's
contest
PUZZLE PICTURE
NO.'
- 1
Find the flat tire.
In order to stimulate public thought
on great problems, we have decided to
run a series of these pictures which
are both amusing and elevating. They
are the sought of thing that Profes-
1sors will be able to solve very quickly,
but which will take students and
other persons of inferior intellect a
long time to solve.
But it is just you students who will
get the most out of these. You find
that if you just spend a few minutes
daily working on these your mind will'
be able to function more rapidly, your
memory will improve, and your en-
tire nervous system will be built up,
your eyes will have that clear bright-
ness, and that tired feeling will dis-
appear. Thousands of men, women
and children have tried our remedy
and send back for more. Over two
million bottles of our tonic are ship-
ped out from our large factory plant
systems daily to every part of this
and even some parts of other lands.
Doctors recommend-but we forget.
This is a Puzzle Picture we are
talking about. Well, we are going to
run a series of these, just how many
we can't'say right now. It may be a
series of one only, in which case this
will be the only one, or there may be
more, you never can tell. Anyone
who is in doubt as to the correct an-
swer, may find out FREE by writing
department S47 and enclosing $13.56
in stamps to cover return postage.
That is for the United States and
Canada only. Free in any other coun-
tries.

We note that our neighbor copied
the Gargoyle review for his depart-
ment yesterday. It's funny but we've

been wondering for a long time why
the Garg didn't fill space by doing
just the opposite.

We are now passing around a peti-
tion to add an amendment to the Con- I
stitution of the State of Michigan,
giving the students control of the
University . We charge the board of
regents with gross mis-Management,
and prove this by the fact that since
the last election of these men the
amount of money which the State
has had to give to support the Uni-
versity has increased alarmingly.

"The Republican form of gov-
ernment has come - to stay in
China, the Chinese people -are go-
ing to insist on being recognized
as a sovereign people with treaty
rights which shall be recognized"
as a matter of national integrity."
-Dr. P. W. Kuo, president of the
National Southeastern university,
Nanking, China, before the board
of foreign missions of the M. E.
church.
PLURAL VOTING
In that state within whose bounda-
ries have roamed a never-ending line
of explorers, adventurers, swash-
bucklers, and swagering cattlemen
where 'romance flourished and the un-
conventional was conventional, this
tradition smashing experiment of
woman in politics has not gone well.
Unitl just a year ago, Texas still re-
tained her audacity, even in these
prosaic times, but in a modernized
form. Politicians replaced the ad-
venturers of old and became the sen-
sation makers. But even the displace-
ment of masculine bravado from
pioneering to the field of politics, un-
satisfactory as it might have been,
seemed doomed to a still lower plane,
Jerhaps to be forever banished, with
the advent of gentle woman.
Events of the past two weeks, how-
ever, have done much to dispel, such
fears. A bit of a confiab seems to
have arisen concerning waste in the
highway contracts evolving from a
slight tendency on the part of the
chief executive to overlook the detail
of competitive bidding. While Miriam
A. Ferguson officially heads the state
administration, a familiar figure
lurkes behind her throne. "Jim"
Ferguson, her husband, the man who
not so long ago was impeached for
improper handling of the state's
funds, is the real governor. No, it is
still the same Texas, going to any
extreme to keep the Klan from power.
If we are to judge from the ex-
Periences of "Ma" Ferguson, who has
proved incapable even to the point of
defending herself, woman has made
a poor start in politics. Instead of
starting on a new tack, with a clean,
slate, she has let herself be led by
-man into the old rut. Not that any
one expected giving the franchise to
women on an equal basis with men

EDITORIAL COMMENT
A FUTURE ARISTOCRACY?
(The Boston Transcript)
General Lincooln C. Andrews, as-
sistant secretary of the Treasury,
says in a public address that the boot-
- leggers bil fair to become the money-
ed aristorcracy of the next genera-
- tion. We fancy that in the sense that
these gentry are likely to preponde-
rate in the next generation's "aristoc-
racy," General Andrew's forecast is
unwarranted. There are still left a
few other means of making money
and laying the foundation for social
rank than the business of dealing in
contraband beverages. There is al-
ways the Wall Street door to aristoc-
racy, and Florida will leave a rich
crop of Corinthians for the next gen-
eration. The honest bricklayer or
plasterer, working at $15 a day, has
a chance to found a family that no
one of the year 1975 may look ask-
ance at. Not all the aristocracy of
that date will be flavored with Scotch.
General Andrews goes a little too far.
Nevertheless, he is right when he
points out that present conditions of
large profit for a lawless business
that somehow will not be suppressed
are rapidly enriching a certain not
socially desirable class. More than
one seashore town points with some
lawless pride and with the whispered,
words "Our principal bootlegger," to
an elegant house, furnished without
and within with all the luxuries, and
with grounds nobly decorated with the
latest achievements in cast-iron stat-
uary. Great wealth is gained in this
illegitimate traffic; and great wealth
means college courses and European
travel for sons and aristocratic mar-
riages for daughters. It means a
large virile foot on the lower rung of
the social ladder. It means a recog-
nizable contingent for the future
world of fashion. Whether this con-
tingent may be regarded by those
already in the swim as a desirable
addition is another matter. And is it
not rather beside the question? The1

lawful traffic, and that our bootleg-
gers are. But social preference rests
upon social opinion; and the same
moral indulgence that is accorded to
to the bootlegger himself, in spite of
the law, may well be extended to his
progeny.
Even at that, and even as General
Andrews says, the general public will
not regard with entire complacency
the enrichment of a semi-criminal and
