Night Editor - CASSAM A. WILSON
With his veto of the proposal by the
philippine legislature for a plebiscite
upon the question of insular inde-
pendence, President Coolidge has of-
fered some wholesome advice to the
native politicians who have been lead-
ing the agitation for complete politi-
cal freedom.
In the firstplace, he frankly stated
his convicton that the people of the
Philippines are as yet not ready for
full self-government. Then, regard-
ing the attainment of this ultimate
goal, he mildly scored the methods of
agitation and opposItion, and advised
the Filippinos to show proper exer-
cise of the large powers of govern-
ment already possessed if they would
gain a successful independence.
Likewise, the President reminded
the Filippinos that "political activity
is not the end of life, but is merely a
means to attain the economic, indus-
trial, and social conditions essential
to a stable existence." From this

stand, he objected to the proposed
plebiscite as a possible detriment to
the economic life of the island.
In the same strain, he pointed to
the economic- hardships which would
accompany a break in the present re-
lations with the United States. #Since
70 per cent of the Philippine exports
come to this country, and since Amer-
ican administration has made possible
the steady progress of the islands,
there ought to be little doubt regard-
ing the value of the present connec-
tibns. Whether the Filippinos realize
it or not, the President has acted for
the welfare and prosperity of the
Filippinos in sustaining the previous
veto of Governor-General Wood.
Last Monday at the polls the voters
of the city defeated Mayor Robert A.
Campbell, treasurer of the University,
and elected to his of ce Edward Stae-
biler, local oil dealer.. The election
can in no way be taken as a repudia-
tion of the record of the incumbent,
for an honest citizenry could never
repudiate such a record; and the fact
that Mayor Campbell neglected to ad-
vertise his accomplishments may-have
prevented him from having a third

edge of the city government, was in-I
stituted by the retiring mayor; and
dozens of smaller things, such as uni-
forms for the. high school band, have
been accomplished indirectly at least,
through his influence.;
It is to be hoped that his successor,
Mr. Staebler, will continue the pro-
gress which has thus far been so suc-
cessfully achieved. It is to be expect-I
ed that the co-operation between the
city'and University will be continued;
and it is to be further expected that
our new mayor will remain awake to
the great potentialities which Mayor
Campbell has so competently discov-
ered in the city of Ann Arbor.
0 There are undoubtedy many advan-
tages to residence in a fraternity
house. The social opportunities of-
fered, the facilities available for close
companionship, the presence of more
or less homelike surroundings, the
compact nature of the group, all these
may be mentioned. But there are also
many} perils. Perhaps the greatest of
these is the tendency toward inbreed-

members of the particular fraternityl

type are always accidents. They are
