HOPE FOR THE COMICS
Possibility that the Mid-West
College comics association, of
which Michigan Gargoyle is a
member, may soon arrive at a sat-
isfactory agreement of its differ-
ences with College Humor does not
sem at all unlikely when consider-
ed in the light of concessions made
by J. M. Lansinger, president and
publisher of College Humor, to the
Western Association of college
comics.
The Western association was th
first of the college comic organiza-
tions to break away from a working
agreement with College Humor,
reaching that decision at its meet-
ing of a year ago. Similar ac-
tion was taken by the Mid-west-
ern organization at its meet-
ing last fall and it was thought
that a convention of the Eastern
association this spring would wit-
ness the same result.
In answer to the ten objections
to the College Humor policy ad-
vanced by Western college repre-
sentatives at their convention in
Reno, Lansinger took definite ac-
tion to improve relations and eight
of the objections were thoroughly
rectified. He also consented to
fulfill many requests made by dele-
gates concerning the two remain-
ing objections, the competition in
securing national advertising and
full payment for exclusive reprint
rights.
Viewed in the light of the action
taken by other college comic or-
ganizations, Lansinger has appar-
ently chosen the only course left
open to him as College Humor has
been and is dependent upon the
college comic magazines for the
reprint material which justifies its
name. His action in seeking con-
ciliation and offering the conces-
sions asked by the college comic
representatives appears readily as
r an acceptable solution for an acute
situation.

LOOK LIVELY, STUDENT!
When the Regents passed the
auto ban on this, campus, they left
the student body at the mercy of
the Ann Arbor residents in just one
more respect: that of living on in
this world at the discretion of the
Ann Arbor motoring public. Had
the. University authorities been
able, they might have gone one
step farther in protecting students
by regulatory measures upon the
the grocery boys, the cleaners' and
dyers' wagon drivers, and a good
share of the sturdy father t.nd
motherhood of this city. For ever
since the howls of the Ann Arbor-
ites concerning the student Fords
and automobiles were silenced, the
worms have turned and now the
students are the hunted.
In front of the Union where staid
city fathers used to leap before
flying Fords and at the intersec-
tion near the Engineering arch
where " pedestrians have forever
been at the mercy of drivers unable
to choose their direction until they
got into the passing crowd, the
tick operators and the good
housewives now plow their way
with no regard for the life and
limb of their meal-tickets. Even
eleven- and twelve-year children
seem to have been taught that the
best offense is to chase a student
crossing the street, while at the
wheel of, father's motor car.
While state police have been
patrolling the streets in search of
wayward students and the Ann
A r b o r police have been else-
where but around, the Ann
Arbor townspeople seem to have
taken especial care to develop a
hauteur combined with speed that
commpletely cows any student so
unfortunate as to attempt a street
crossing with a half-mile. The ab-
sence of students cars and conse-
quently a basis for equality in the
jolly brotherhood of the open road
has left the student with nothing
but a quick eye, a good pair of legs,
and a prayer to save himself from
being cut down 'by displays of the
most careless driving ever seen in
any city.

AN OPEN LETTER TO CORA
Dear Cora,
Perhaps you might better under-
stand why the students seem so
reluctant to accept the whole re-
sponsibility for last Monday's
fracas, and evince that acceptance
by subscribing to the repayment
fund, if you knew all of the story.
A crowd, a large number of
whom were expecting a free show,
as announced at the field house,
gathered in frpnt of the Michigan
Theatre. Some even entered *'the
lobby, and quietly left when told
that the free movie was at Hill
Auditorium. No doubt -the crowd
was noisy, with cries of "Let's go
in!", "Break down the doors!",
"Open up!", and others; but simi-
lar cries have issued from the
queues at the field house, and the
field house has never been rushed.
The crowd was a good-natured and
friendly one, although noisy, and
there is no reason to expect that
the Michigan Theatre would have
been subjected to any more of an
attack than was the Majestic,
where the crowd also stopped, had
not an apprehensive and frighten-
ed policeman fired a tear gas cart-
ridge into the faces of the crowd.
Mob psychology is peculiar, and
the actions of an excited crowd are
seldom rational. The leaders, who
are supposed to be more nearly ra-
tional than the followers, in all
statute and common law are held
more strictly accountable for their
actions than the others. Doers of
overt acts that at other times
would matter little are treated se-
verely because of the effect of their
actions upon others. The first overt
act is considered a most serious
one. While this does not justify
the subsequent actions of the stu-
dents it does give them more rea-
son than mere malicious destruc-
tion of property.
Another reason for the rapidly
diminishing rate of contribution to
The Daily fund might be found in
the transpiration of information
regarding the treatment accorded
the prisoners taken by the police.
Two of the five studens-arrested
at the Michigan Theatre were
struck after having been taken into
custody. One of the two was so
severely beaten in the face by, two
policemen and an employe of the
theatre that now, a week later, the
marks are plainly visible. These
facts, denied by the police, may be
substantiated by the evidence of
the injured men, a Daily reporter,
and the two students who were
first arrested.
This is not written with the in-
tention of giving the student a
