SUNDAY, MAY 5, 1929
With the traditional Swing Out
of the class of 1929 scheduled to
take place Thursday afternoon of
this week, campus sentimenrt is be-
coming definitely cyrstallized in its
belief that noyuntoward action
must be allowed to mar this re-
occurence of one of Michigan's
oldest commencement customs.
No member of the present stu-
dent body who was on campus at
the time of the farce that was per-
petrateddbyumany members of last
'year's graduating class need have
difficulty in recalling the unfortu-
nate and highly regrettable stig-
ma which was cast upon the event
at that time.
University authorities, highly
disgusted, have intimated that
they have come to doubt seriously
the feasibility of continuing the
tradition. The Student Council
on the other hand, has expressed
Ats belief that the event z;hould be
continued. To insure the latter,
the Council has recommended that
drastice disciplinary action be
taken by the University in the case
of every offender.
Drunkenness at a traditional
function, such as Swing Out, is of
course highly unnecessary. Little
reason, indeed, can be shown to
justify it. In this case a highly
colorful tradition is at stake. The
Student Council is determined that
it shall be retained.
But one remedy is apparent,
and that is severe disciplinary ac-
tion. In stating its attitude, the
Council said that suspension, even
at this late date, does not seem too
The University disciplinary com-
mittee is prepared to mete out just
thiy punishment to any senior who
is guilty either of misconduct or
intoxication while participating in
the event. The language is clear
and there can De no doubt as to
the steps which may be expected to
follow any violation of the ruling.
The warning has been given.
Seniors participating in Swing
Out will do well to heed it.
It is impossible in an editorial
of publishable length- to indicate
what the new League building will
mean for women at Michigan. Let
it suffice to say that its conception
and erection is in many ways the
most significant event in the his-
tory of Michigan coeducation. The

(From The Daily Illini)
The attitude of "somening has
got to be done," permeates every
phase of present day existence.
The alarmists-or those who "view
the situation with alarm," and the
reformers preach constantly the
gospel that things are not what
they should be, and that drastice
action is needed to remedy them.
The farm relief problem which
has been before Congress, and the
American people, through the
newspapers for the past few years
is one of the outstanding situations
about which something should be
done. Prohibition is the other
great situation which has brought
forth the same feeling. Newspa-
pers, the wets and the drys, have
assailed, or praised the law from
every possible angle. The wets de-,
cided, long ago, and retain the!
same decision, that something
ought to be done. The drys main-
tain that fundamentally it is a good
law, but there are rough points
about it, and they too, at least some
of them, agree that something
ought to be done.{
Just what should be done, of
course, is not so often stated. In
most of the campaigns against
prohibition, the fact that the law
as it is now, is pretty rotten is
stated over and over again. Rea-
sons, for the instances, that the
,aw is pretty rotten, are sometimes
given. That is all. The drys, with
the Jones law attempted, by dras-
tic means, to make the original
prohibition measure, more effective.
Whether they will succeed , or;
whether they will make conditions
worse, cannot be said. The other
group still insists that something
should be done.
In a recent issue of the famous
Review of Reviews, is an article on
the present prohibition situation.
The main paragraph states: "One
may select from the current events,!
nine of the incidents which throw
light on prohibition 10 years after
its beginnings, and make it evi-
dent that the commission Presi-
dent Hoover plans for inquiring in-
to means of law enforcement, with
emphasis on prohibition, will face
no mean task." Following this
learned statement, is a list of the
happenings, selected from "current
Included in the nine are: the
Jones law, the sinking of the "I'm
Alone," the fact that Representa-
tive Morgan, a dry, bought four
bottles of liquor through the cus-
toms, the DeKing affair, and the
Leviathan's liquor supply. There
is no question that these are all
pertinent facts. They are, what is:
more, rather ;serious. And their
bearing on the enforcement of the1
prohibition law is evident.
But, the Review of Review., has
nothing to offer about them. It
comments on them. It reprints the
incidents. It says that the com-
mission will have its hands full,
which no one has even thought of
doubting. And it infers that some-
thing should be done.
Such articles, as the one above
add nothing to tne suM of the
knowledge on the subject. The ar
tile offers nothing, in the way of
a suggestion. It is merely bring-
ing back, a group of quite unpleas-
tn, l~ erv~ . ~7 4i~nf- r

Mary Gold, for one year the
sole inspiration and hope of
that jocose and facetious col-
umn which has greeted you
over your coffee (or do you
drink Postum) every morning
for the last odd years, is dead.
Mary was inopportunely of-
flicted with a broken heart
last Tuesday and passed to
her great reward at seven
o'clock eastern standard time.
Mary Gold was born some
time ago out west and came
to Ann Arbor to complete her
education. She had received
almost as many degrees as
Doctor Lovell and is perhaps
as widely known and deeply
The funeral was held Wed-
nesday from the Press.Build-
ing on Maynard street. The
floral offering was large, and
Lark officiated as chief
mourner, wearing a formal
afternoon suit and a silk hat
with a gardenia. Mary was
robed in a lovely flame-col-
oured ensemble which was
said to have made a strik-
ing effect against the sombre
gray of the coffin. The rest
of the mourners wore their
own clothes.
Among those present be-
sides the student body and
the faculty, not to mention
Mary Gold, was Editor Pat-
rick of the Michigan Daily
(advt); Paul J. Kern, who
came from Detroit for the
Occasion; Professor Brandt
of the Speech Department,
who flunked Mary Gold and
contributed to the cause of
her death; Gumley, who act-
ed as master of ceremonies;
Yellit, et al; and Emily Post,
who said it was all in very
good form.
Mary is mourned by a host
of friends and well-wishers
who grieve for her hasty and
premature departure. Inter-
ment will be in Forest Hill
Cemetery next to the Arbore-
tum, where Mary used to cull

Our chief work is this: If
Mary Gold is really dead,
what are we going to write
for columns the remainder of
the year?
Now that Mary Gold is
dead and buried, now that
everything is al over, the
burning question is this:
What would YOU do in
the case of Tom Carr?
In addition to what Mary's
able press agent has already
so admirably said in tender
and thrilling phrases about
the dear deceased, we feel
that we ought to pay a little
tribute to her as well.

Time after time, when we
had sat and gazed at our
typewriter for hours and
hours, waiting for an idea or
even something to write
about, Mary would step into
the office and help us out.
She was always good for sev-

She was the most enduring

now since she is with us
no more, heaven alone knows
what will help us out of our
difficulties on dull days.
