Although Lewis did sign an agree-
ment for President Scott that he would
not play football until next semester
ec as cof isjt p-'oor scholastic record,
hI hias lbmc relcased from that agree-
ment by the President and has been
granted permission to compete, pro-
viding he remains eligible and carries
his class work successfully. There
is no doubt now as to the scholastic
eligibility of Lewis, and since he
signed the agreement, he has suc-
cessfully completed twenty-one hours
of work, fifteen hours during the sec-
ond semester of last year and six
during the summer session.
President Scott, in communicating
his decisions to Lewis, stated that he
had decided that it would be unwise
to make an exception in his case and
that therefore he would be considered
eligible as were all other students
who had the same scholastic standing.
He added that he felt that participa-
tion by Lewis would not endanger the
success of his educational career.
Since the agreement which was
signed by Lewis was brought about
because of faculty decision that he
should be ineligible, the president and
faculty certainly should have the right
to release him from his contract. The
honor of a university, its scholarship,
and its tradition should not be sacri-
ficed for a football player, or for the
game itself-the stand of The Daily
Northwestern in that respect is
praiseworthy-but surely an agree-
ment such as was entered into be-
tween Lewis and the president of the
university should not be binding when
the president deems it feasible that
Lewis should be released from his
obligation. The Daily Northwestern
seems to desire that the letter of the
agreement be observed rather than
the spirit, the latter of which is real-
ly the important factor.
AN UNUSUAL PROGRAM
The lecture course which the Ora-
torical association has arranged this
season for the students and its many
outside patrons is one to be comend-
ed. Its personnel is comprised of
perhaps the greatest array of national
and international characters ever to
be brought here in one season, and
from a financial standpoint the pro-
gram is one of the most expensive
ever attempted by the associatioon.
Theodore Roosevelt, Lieutenant
Commander Richard E. Byrd, Senator
"Pat" Harrison, Roy Chapman An-
drews, Charles Upson Clark, Edwin
M. Whitney, The Kennedys, Gregory
Mason, Louis k. Anspacher, and Will
Irwin are the names listed on the pro-
gram. It is -a versatile list and one
that offers much to the students.
There are few places in this coun-
try where it is possible for people to
hear such an array of speakers in one
season, and to come. In contact with
men of such outstanding character
and re' .p si (ltcntional and cultural
advM r ut . h iis contact offers.
Cotlntani ler 1 rlN will tll the story1
(of lIas flight to theNorth Pole, Roose-j
velt will take his audience to many
strange lands in the relation of his
experiences, Senator Harrison will
give the students an insight into po-I
litical questions and conditions, Mr.
Andrews will tell his story of pre-l
historic life in Asia, Mr. Clark willi
tell who is who in America, Mr. Whit-
ney will give a recital, The Kennedys1
their production, Mr. Mason will dis--
cuss his fascinating experiences and:
discoveries in Egypt and Greece, Mr.i
Anspacher will discuss "The Mob and
the Movies," and Will Irwin will offerf
a real treat.1
The Oratorical association was not
organized for the purpose of making]
money; it was organized as a group
of students with the aim of serving
the students in forensic activities and,
programs. Consequently, such a lec-4
ture course as the one for this season
has been arranged with little thought:
of expense. It is the best obtainable,?
and those who attend it will appre-
ciate this fact. F
Those students who have not cul-.
tivated the habit of attending the Ora-
torical association lecture course,"
should do so immediately for theyf
cannot realize what they are losing.
from an educational and culturals
standpoint. Members of the class of r
1930 especially should feel that parts
of their first year's education is the.
attendance of the lecture course ofa
the Oratorical association..
A BELITTLED DEGREE i
It is a foregone conclusion that a t
college degree entitles one to a cer- p
tain amount of respect. The diploma
which sooner or later usually hangs o
n a dingy corner always is a stamp b
of approval-all that it ever can be. t
Recognition of this sort entails deft- s
nite implications which are in them- t
selves worth striving for.1
to any student of our government.
Ideas of this sort, coming from a
graduate of a university, tend to be-
little the significance of a degree. This
case, as well as many others, exempli-
fies that implication is not always ne-
cessarily fact. Credentials are some-
times given to men unfit to bear them.
However, it cannot be said that de-
grees are an evidence of "canned"
education-they are generally a worth
while recommendation and hence
HARVARD'S NEXT HEAD
On December thirteenth, Dr. Law-
rence Lowell, president of Harvard
university, will celebrate his seven-
tieth birthday. For seventeen years
he has been head of the oldest univer-
sity in America. During his regime
President Lowell has accomplished
much for his Alma Mater, has given
his utmost to its well being, and .has
sacrificed personal pursuits to its
service. Yet the time is not far off
when he must give up the reins and
retire to a merited rest from the rig-]
orous duties of public life.
According to a recent paper on
"Harvard's Next President," candi-
dates for the prospective vacancy are
already being considered, possibilities
reviewed, and potential successors
named. Critics contend that the new
president must necessarily be lacking
in any too definite ideas or doctrines,
and must possess none too positive
ideas on any subject. Cynics say that
he cannot be too closely identified
with any religious denomination, must
be financially independent, intellect-
ually safe, socially presentable, not
over forty, and capable of raising
funds. Others maintain that these are
only sub-issues, that what Harvard
wants is a real president to succeed
Dr. Lowell, not merely a man who
happens to fulfill certain require-
Among those mentioned as Presi-
dent Lowell's successor is our own
President Little, Harvard, '10. But it
is doubtful whether President Little
would accept the post if it were offer-
ed to him. Michigan offers perhaps
greater opportunities in that it is
freer from usage and custom than is
Harvard and can be guided to a great-
er future with far less resistance.
Probably the expected vacancy will
not occur in the immediate future.
At any rate it is interesting to spec-
ulate on the possible successor to the
presidency of what is frequently con-
sidered the "American Oxford."

A review, by Vincent Wall.
Queenie Smith, pleasantly assisted
by Richard Keenh and two beautiful
blondes have been well met in De-
troit. Their show, "Tip-Toes," has
drawn good houses at their two per-
formances--and Broadway liked it
The company was particularly good
without that hectic and frayed ap-
pearance peculiar to road shows, and
there was an esemble that proved that
it could dance in a manner that dem-
onstrated clearly why "Tip-Toes"
stayed in New York a year. The plot
contained sufficient originality to en-
tertain, and several novelties brought
down the house :the trombone chorus
which used the entire company in an
almost deafening Anvil Chorus vir-
tuoso; and the dancing of Gertrude
McDonald and Dorothy Humphries in
the specialty numbers.
Miss Smith and Mr. Keene more-
over, more than ran away with the
show and turned down curtain calls
after each reprise of "Looking For A
Boy," although the lyrics by the
Messrs Gershwin seemed to indicate
it worked both ways. Both are pos-
sessed with personalities that go
across the lights; Miss Smith's voice
it is true is a bit loud and whiskey,
but her toe work is marvelous-she
had her, beginnings in a Metropolitan
The comedy of the piece, such as it
was, was furnished by Tombes and
Watson; but their horse play and wise
cracks brought little more than a,
giggle and an occasional guffaw from
the gallery. If it had not been for the
exceptional work of the principals the
pitiful lack of humor would have
emptied the house by the end of the
first act; but this was impossible and
the dash and speed of the rest of the
production would have satisfied even
the audience that last week sniggered
at Gilda Gray and her famous wiggle.

MU61 has .beenf said of echoes of
the policy .which President Clarence
Cook Little sounded in his inaugural
addtess last year;? but the seemingly
most reverberant echo has come with
the announcement by President Glenn
Frank, of the University of Wisconsin,
that he is going to establish the first
"laboratory" for the purpose of de-
v? rnoans of insuring "to studentst

be 'icu," said President
Frank, "by concentrating attention on
the first 'two years of college as a
period to be devoted -to the conquest
of a cultural background and the de-
velopment of a general intellectual
technique for fiding one's way about
in modern society." He added that
"some radically new approach to this
problem is necessary, . an approach
that may man the complete scrap-
ping of the present curriculum."
It is interesting to note that much
thei sameopinion was voiced by Presi-
dent Little in his inaugural last year.
He outlined three stages in the tran-
sition through which a college student
goes. First, .there is the information
acquiring- stage; second, a period of
analysis and correlation of the infor-
mation acquired in the first period;
and third, a period of research and
investigation. "Our scale of values,"1
asserted President Little, "should bet
reconstructed to utilize natural stages,
of mental development rather than
arbitrary academic grades involving
no change in. attitude. This wholet
matter is, of necessity, wrapped upt
in the reorganization of curricula and
in giving individual attention to the
Although President Little did not
make actual division of the college1
years into which these transitional'
periods might fall, he intimated thata
such ta division would possibly be ad-t
visable. President Frank, in his ex-
perimental college of 250 students, is
applying a test in a small way to such
a division by transitional periods. He
is performing an experiment upon thec
policies which President Little out- 1
lined. For that reason, the success orV
failure of the "experimental college"'
at Wisconsin should be of particularo
interest to this University.

IF TINY LEWIS PLAYS-
(The Daily Northwestern)
Dope says that Tiny Lewis will
play this year, despite the fact that he
signed a contract pledging to refrain
from all athletics.
If he plays, Northwestern will prob-
ably have a :banner pigskin year. If
he plays, Northwestern will lose its
self-respect. And it'll lose a portion
of its claim as an educational institu-
If Lewis doesn't play, honest foot-
ball and honest scholarship will tri-
But if Lewis plays there's a weak
link somewhere. Maybe in North-
western's spine. Maybe in its head.
The world will then know that schol-
arship ranks second at Northwestern
and football first. That'll be great in-
formation to the supporters of this
university throughout the country.
For Northwestern, if Lewis plays,
has tossed education aside. In prin-
ciple, at least.
It's all very well to play to win and
to play hard. But it's unfair and
crooked to sacrifice scholarship for
the larger end of a pigskin score.
Northwestern doesn't need a big-
hearted faculty right now. It needs
a faculty with plenty of backbone.
Backbone of the type which Dean Kent
displayed at faculty meeting when he
held out for. scholarship and clean
athletics against opposition and the
familiar cry of "loyalty."
Northwestern needs a student body,1
a faculty and an administration that
realizes football is not the leading
subject in college. Then it needs an
administration that'll grit its teeth
and stoutly maintain that trigonome-
try is still worth while. It needs a
faculty that'll realize the comparative
importance of both football and
;rigonometry and give each its proper

on athletics. It must not sacrifice
honor and tradition and scholarship
