dis, backed b~y the majority of offl-
vials, succeedled in greatly reducing
Johnson's authority, and in having
him removed from the baseb~all ad-
visory board. Since then, Johnson,
boiling, but not yet exploded awaitedc
his opportunity for rcvenge. Now a
battle is about to be opened, and there
is a prevalent feeling that "Johnson
1must have done something- or he
wouldn't have dared to reopen the

Though officials, hold their tongues,

from past doings have load to the be-

conme to Landis' support. Likewise,
the National league heads are wont tot
cast their support with the cornis-
Isioner, for they reason that in a finish'

on his feet at the- final count.

Night Pd itot-STA NF ORD N. PHELPS
Feeling that the University as a
'N holpe would benefit under a system
whereby new fraternity and sorority
houses should be grouped more close-
ly about, th~e campus, the Senate Coin-
mitteo on Student Affairs has taken
action to make that system an actual-
ity. And while there are numerous
disadvantages to the plan of restrict-
, , ing proposed houses to a designated
area, the soundness of the measure
will be understood by those thinking
in terms of the bus-t interests of the
The principal reason cited by the
c mmittee in justification of its ac-,
tion was the toenloz:-y of students in1
outlying residences to fail to gain the
most out of college life socially and
scholastically due. to difficulties of
transportatiotn, the necessary auto-
mobile opei-ation being met only by
increased expense arid being denied
to underclassmen.
On the other side of the fence, there
are undoubtedly many advantages
which go with fraternity residence in
outlying areas. Quiet, and privacy
are enjoyed, lower landl values per-mit
larger grounds and facilities for out-
door sports, and a semi-isolatio
makes for closer association among
fraternity members. Trhen, too, the
property values near the campus, al-
ready inflated, will take a tremendous
jump, - 7. k;ingitmore expensive than{
