A WISE STANDt
The flogging bill which was re-
cently sent to Governor Green from
the state senate has been vetoed. In l
denouncing the proposed "whipping
post" law, which the legislature had
seen fit to pass, the governor made a
highly commendable move.
If it had been approved, such a
measure would certainly have stamp-
ed the state of Michigan as one whose1
progressiveness is quetionable, to say
the least. The governor was quick to
realize the inhumane purpose of the
bill and the reaction which would
have resulted. "This action would
bring a great deal of unwelcome
notoriety to Michigan," he pointed out
in explaining the reasons for the veto,!
"and would lead to the belief that this
legislature was suffering from hys-
teria due to the desire to curb crime.
There would be no commensurate
In view of the fact that another
similar whipping post measure is in
a conference committee of the house
and senate, Governor Green, in dis-
;approving the original bill as soon as
it reached his desk, remarked "in
order to warn the house not to attach
'whipping post" amendments to any
It is indeed a wise stand.
The Mississippi valley is at present
facing the most disastrous flood in the
history of the United States. While
the nation as a whole is baking in
the full reflected light of opulent
prosperity, thousands in the lowlands
bordering the Mississippi have had
their homes destroyed and their
goods swept away.
The one agency that never fails
in an emergency like this is the Red
Cross. No matter where the disaster,
or what the circumstances,.relief from
this source is always available, and
in the extremity of the flood this great
organization has again come to the
rescue. Funds are necessary for ex-
tensive relief, however, even to the
Red Cross, and the American people
are at present being asked by their
president and press to subscribe to the
$5,000,000 fund that is being raised for
Certainly there have been few more
worthwhile causes than this; and if
liberal America, which has relieved
suffering in Japan, France, and a
dozen other far away points, still has
the heart that it has displayed be-
fore, it will not forget its neighbors
in the Southern Mississippi valley.
France is seeking to prevent a
mutually destructive trade war with
the United States. Basing our wishes
on the amount of money they owe us
we hope they succeed.

ART vs. ARCHITECTS
It's going to be "The Firebrand"

ways than one ,it appears now. For
the architects have sort of planned on
having a little dance in Barbour gym
that evening, and just above them will
be the Players, in Sarah Caswell An-

As far as we know they haven't
done anything about it, and so the
theater audience will no doubt be en-

Just as Henderson starts yelling
"Fire!" the orchestra downstairs will
tune up with "Fire! Fire!"
* * *
Of course Art must always triumph,
but the trouble here is that the arch-
itects claim there is a good deal of
art going into the decorations, and it
would be too bad to waste them, by
calling off the dance.
* * *
Incidently, we hope they don't do
anything like that. Here we've al-
ready rented our costume. We were
going to make it of course, but
couldn't thread the needle.

The League Fund needs the money
of course, from the play. Maybe it
would draw a bigger crowd if they
announced that the theater would be
open but there wouldn't be any show.
Then the audience could have some
real entertainment listening to the

THE MERIT SYSTEM
When one takes the roll of the
eminently successful enterprises in
any line, whether it be business or
industry or government, he finds one
fundamental principle underlying
them all-the principle of the merit
system. The same thing has worked
out on our University campus-the
eminently.su'ccessful branches of stu-
dent activity, such as scholarship,
athletics, debating, and publications
are all operated on the merit system.
