tee, before its presentation is dis- 1
couraged by the UniIersity authori- t
ties, the student members sit back,t
without compunction, and take dicta-s
tion on the case from the dean of stu-
dents' office. Consequently, there have
been something like two petitions
granted in the past seven or eightI
With such assistance from the au-
thorities limited to advice, it would
most likely be for the best interestsr
of the fraternities. As it is, the super-
vision of fraternities might as well
come directly from the office of the if
dean of students, and the Interfrater-t
nity Council discard its constitution
and disband. The' Council is one of the
finest examples of obsequiousness on t
the Michigan campus.
Senator Borah has again broughtt
the Senate to consideration of Amer-
ican foreign policy relative to Nicara-
gua by offering a resolution authoriz-
ing the foreign relations committee I
to go to Mexico and Central America
to get first hand information on con-
There is little doubt that the for-
eign affairs of this country would be
better administered if the Senators,
particularly those on the foreign re-
lations committee were better inform-
ed upon the conditions in question.
Moreover, Washington dispatches in-
dicate that the coalition forces back-
ing the resolution may very likely se-
cure its adoption.
Regardless of the propriety and ad-
vantages of Senate investigations,
however, this proposal seems to rep-
resent an expensive means of bring-
ing the Senate committee into the
spotlight of foreign affairs. If its
members wish to learn the circum-
stances leading the state department
to request that additional forces be
sent to Nicaragua, for example, it can
easily do so from Secretary Kellogg
who has already explained such mat-
ters to the committee. Moreover, in
this particular case, it might be re-
membered that the reasons advanced
for intervention in the first place are
still the fundamental ones for the
more vigorous policy recently adopted.
Michigan must rehabilitate its
northern counties if it is to retain
its present prosperity. Already sev-
eral of the counties receive more
money annually from the state pri-
mary school fund than they pay into
the state treasury in taxes. In other
words, the more prosperous regions
of the state are bearing the burden
of the some 10,000,000 acres of idle
land that stands as a vast white ele-
phant; a' testimonial of the wasteful-
ness of preceding generations.
The reason for the great insolvency
is, of course, the fact that the forests;
the chief natural resource of that
section of the country, have been
practically exhausted. Before any
appreciable scheme of reforestation
can be undertaken, however, it is
necessary that the state know what
it is all about, and for this purpose
the Land Economic Survey, a branch
of the State Department of Conser-
vation, has been established.
In the five years of its existence, the
Survey has completed work in seven
counties. Now, as a means of ex-
pediting the work it is planned to use
some of the available talent from the
University to make a rapid survey of
the entire northern portion of the
state inext summer, and for this task
Prof. K. C. McMurray of the geo-
graphy department has been chosen.

The idea is a good one and deserves
the support of the people of the state
of Michigan. It will give a tentative
idea, at least, of the availability of the
vast tax delinquent territory for re-
forestation and other development. It
will give the state some conception of
the 10,000,000 acres that are rapidly
returning to its possession because of
default of taxes-a vast burden on the
Smore prosperous regions ofsthe state.
SAndmost important, it shows the
promising trend of utilizing the tech-
nical talent of the University for the
practical good of the state.

Eddy, we must of necessity differ with
he Almighty. Only the most shallow
thinkers can be anything but nau-
seated and disgusted by such twaddle.

To The Editor:
I was greatly interested to read in
your issue recently of the proposedS
reform in the educational system of
Antioch College, where it is hoped to
substitute a form of "consultations"
for the present lectures, and to "throw
the responsibility for study and t
courses on the student and instead of
on the faculty." The article goes ont
to add, "Surely, this marks an ad-
vance in the educational ideal."
Undoubtedly it does. But I beg
leave to point out that it is no more
than is happening today in nine-1
tenths of the Universities of Britain.
There are still lectures to be sure,
but attendance is anything but com-
pulsory . Indeed, the man who at-
tends one-half of the lectures he
ought to is regarded by students and
professors alike as a paragon of vir-
tue. Emphasis is laid, not on lectures,
but on private study along specialized
lines, aided and inspired by consulta-
tions with professors and also by dis-
jussions among the students them-
The results that have followed here,
and which may be expected to follow
if a similar scheme be adopted at
Antioch, are:--In the first place, an,
easy line of distinction is drawn be-
twe Y the sheep and the goats, be-
tweeh those who come up to colleget
with the intention of doing a little
study and those who have Aio inten-
tion to do any at all; whether a stu-
dent belongs to the one group or the
other rests with his own discretion.
Secondly, for those who do wish to
study, every opportunity is given for;
specialization along individual lines;
within certain limits, the student fol-
lows his own interests, which means
in the long run that he does both more
and better work. Such a system if
adopted in America would go far to
abolish the "mass production" effects
of the present University system, and
would substitute a form of education
that produces thinking individuals in-
stead of human memorizing machines.

To The Editor:
Your editorial, "More Forces to
Nicaragua," endorses a policy which
many patriotic Americans condemn.
You argue that as the State Depart-
ment has blundered in Nicaragua, we
must send more marines to save our
"prestige." That our policy from the
start is doubtful you seem to admit
by writing "whatever may be thought
of the wisdom of the course" and
then recommnd-go to it. That
sounds like advising the man who
stepped into a swamp to continue in
the once-chosen direction, rather
than to admit his mistake by leaping
back to solid ground.
President Coolidge was not elected
by the American people to conduct
class-wars and no article of our con-
stitution states that we, as a nation,
are bound to interfere in party-strife
in foreign countries, helping the
wrong side and supporting those who
have not the majority of the people
behind them. As every other nation,
we, in the United States, have progres-
sive as well as conservative citizens.
The progressives must consider it an
outrage that United States money arid
warships are employed by the gov-

ernment to help a political party (with
which they do not sympathize) remain
in power. In doing so, our govern-
ment commits the very mistake of
which the Soviet government has been
accused in Europe: interfering in at
foreign country to assist a political
party; the only difference being that
whereas Moscow thinks it necessary
to send troops and money to Commun-
ist revolutionaries in Hungary, Ger-
many, and other countries, our gov-
ernment seems to have received a
mandate from the "spokesman" to
help conservatives wherever they start
a civil war.
We lost prestige in South America
and Europe by sending marines to
Nicaragua-we cannot regain prestige
by increasing our mistakes, but only
by withdrawing the first companies.
Secretary Kellogg's former occupa-
tion remains unknown to many of us,
but he certainly does not know even
the elements of diplomacy, or hej
otherwise would have inquired wheth-
er the President's invitation to the

.i. ,:

1For the past few years the Inter-
fraternity Council at Michigan has
been little more than an instrument
of the University-a diplomatic tool
wielded, on occasion, between the of-
fice of the dean of students and the
fraternities. Initiative, self-assertion,
and independent action are virtues
unknown to the present Council, in
true keeping with the faults of its
recent predecessors.
The co-ordination which exists be-
tween the Council and the University
authorities is indeed remarkable. The
only objectioi to su ,ch a harmonious
relationship is the pitiful weakness
displayed by the Council in complying
with every sug'gestion that is made.
The fraternity body not only refuses
to think for itself but is ,apparently
dependent upon the office of the dean
of students for its every action. It
exercises not one iota of originality.
And so long as the Council submits to
this influence without restraint, so
long as it declines to stand upon its
own feet, then will it rightfully be
held responsible for its own con-
spicuous ineffectiveness.
The fraternity dance problem is a
point in question. Instead of investi-
gating the situation last year, or even
last fall when conditions were not as
they should be, the Council looked on
while the Senate committee on Stu-
(lent Affairs decided to prohibit all
(lancing at fraternity houses after
football games next fall, and again
when that faculty-influenced commit-
tee restricted the number of guests
at a recent fraternity house party,
the Council did not even discuss the
matter. Recommendations of the
Council in these cases may or may
not have carried weight, yet they
would have been evidence, at least, of
the Council's interest in the affairs of
its members.
The fraternity rushing question is
another vivid example of the Council's
uselessness. Until the University au-
therities threatened to bring about a
change in the system of rushing here,
this year's Council took no ,steps
upon its own accord to investigate the
situation. When pressure was broughi
to bear, a committee was finally ap-
pointed to look into the system. But
it will remain for the authorities to
bring about an improvement in the
rushing system; the committee can-

Two musical comedies which have
been a prominent part of the season's
offerings in New York have left with
their entire casts for a tour of the
larger cities of the middle west. The
first is "Katja" which comes to the
Shubert Detroit on this Sunday night
after a successful run at the 44th
street theater in New York-the jump
being broken by a week in Montreal
and Toronto. The other show, "Oh,
Please!" with Beatrice Lille and
Charles Winniger has left the Fulton
on 42nd street and is now en route
to Chicago.
"Katja" is a musical comedy of the
same type as "Blossom Time," "The
Student Prince," "Coutess Maritza"
and the other extravagant and vain
operettas that have been a late vogue
in musical comedy, the modern ap-
proximation of light opera. It origi-
