Coolidge is not requested to run *o
a third term. As a public commit
ment of policy the measure is doubt
less significant, but as a practical po.
litical move it means precisely noth.
ing-and an eloquent nothingness.
In the first place the resolution h
not binding on either the Republica]
national convention nor the voters of
I the country. It merely expresses ar
opinion of 96 men high in public of
fice. In the second place it is quit(
improbable whether President Cool-
idge was even considering a candidacy
for the third term before the resolu
tion; and in the third place the whol(
affair demonstrates rather effectively
how much of a man's personal pop-
ularity depends on his political power.
Had the same resolution been intro-
duced a year ago, when Coolidge waa
on the crest of the wave, none but
the most daring LaFollette Republi-
cans would have supported it; coming
now, however, when Coolidge nc
longer wields the big stick in the
party, both Republicans and ,Demo-
crats flocked willy-nilly to give the
measure a more than two to one
margin.
In spite of its interesting aspects,
in short, the resolution is completely
impotent to accomplish the end which
it indicates as desirable, and cannoi
by any stretch of the imagination b(
taken as a significant historical or
constitutional document.
COMMENDASBLE
Permission recently granted by Uni-
versity authorities (t o remove the
street car tracks from the State streel
and North University avenue sides of
the campus will make possible the
realization of a civic plan which has
long been suspended in spite of its
worthiness. The plan of the city is tc
widen State street for the entire dis-
tance between North University ave-
nue and the Union, and the plan for
North University avenue, even more
ambitious, provides for a boulevard
arrangement of the street between
State street and East University ave-
nue.
With the growing appreciation of
the traffic problem, and the growing
awareness of the University to the
possibilities of its surroudings for
beautification, the two projects link
very nicely. Both the city authorities
who will execute the scheme, and the
University authorities whose permis-
sion made it possible, are to be highly
commended.

"SATURI)AY NIGHT DANCES"
For several years, the interfratern-
ity council has been more or less
justifiably criticized as a defunct or-
ganization. Though meeting several
times each year, it has accomplished
few things of worth. The reason has
seemed to be both a failure to see the
problems demanding solution and a
lack of initiative to carry out sugges-
tions.
Slightly more than a year ago the
the question of fraternity dances on
Saturday nights following football
games was raised. It was held that
influx of sporty alumni plus the ex-
citement and inspiration of the oc-
casion placed the parties beyond the
control of the active chapters giving
them.
In the absence of any activity on
the part of the interfraternity council,
the Administrative Board decided to
ban these particular dances for one
year. Accordingly, last fall, permis-
sion was given only for dances on
Friday nights for the weekends of
home games. Since that time thej
University has taken no further ac-'
tion.
There is at least something to be
said in favor of the Saturday night
dances. From a social standpoint, the
football weekend is a desirable time
for the fraternity dance. Moreover, if
entertainment is not provided in Ann
Arbor, many students will seek it
elsewhere where the situation will be
much less controlled, or controllable.
Before the end of this semester
some decision must be made on the
matter for next fall. The Adminis-
trative Board may extend its rulings
for another year. Despite the action
of the Board previously or in the fu-
ture, however, the matter is one for
concern of the Interfraternity coun-
cil.
The Council should investigate, as
with representatives from each fra-I
ternity it is alone qualified, the re-
sults, of the experiment during the
last senmesier. With that materiall

METHODS OF EXCLUSION
To the Editor:
Two methods of excluding unde-
sirable students have been brought
into public notice by the presidents of
two leading western universities.
The first, advocated by our own
President, seems to consist in placing
heavy restrictions upon student priv-
ileges, so that the undesirable stu-
dents will no longer have any desire
to attend the University. This method
is based upon the assumption that
the undesireable students are those
who come, not especially for the pur-
pose of taking advantage of the Uni-
I versity's educational facilities, but
rather for idleness, to have a good
time, or similar admittedly undesire-
able reasons.
The second, sponsored by Presidentj
Glenn Frank, of Wisconsin, consists
in singling out the particular men
who have specifically demonstrated
that they are obtaining but little edu-
cational benefit from the University,
and refusing them readmittance.
President Little admits that under
his plan, the many must suffer for the
sins of the few; whereupon he dodges
the issue by proclaiming us all ser-
vants of the state, and, as such, in
possession of no inherent fundamen-
tal privileges. Furthermore, the as-
sumption upon which his . plan is
based does not take into account that
many of the undesireable studens are
not necessarily lacking in ambition,
but rather in mental ability to keep
up their scholastic work. Whereas
the Wisconsin plan strikes at the
heart of the matter by going directly
to the unfit individual, President Lit-
tle seeks to apply a System to a largz
group.
It seems to me that President Little,
