and readers is the name of Anne I
Morrow, daughter of the Unitedc
States ambassador to Mexico, who N
it is an'nounced, is engaged to theT
"flying colonel.".
Custom would seem to dictate!
that congratulations are now in
order for "Lindy." There are many'
of us, however, who might feel
readily enough that in this partic-
ular circumstance, the young lady
is, improper as it may seem, reallyt
entitled to the congratulations.
Sober consideration is apt, never-1
theless, to convince, many an im-I
partial observer that the wife of al
prominent public figure is notj
nearly so much to be congratulated]
as at first appears.
Loved by a nation fully as much3
for the sterling worth of his char-,
acter as for his abilities as pilot,
and mechanic of flying machines,
Lindbergh may not prove nearly
so satisfactory a husband for Anne
Morrow as would some other young 1
man of good standing who is not1
a national hero. A man who is
of necessity constantly in demand
and whose interests are definitely
those of the mechanic and aero-
nautical engineer, may not, quite
possibly,, prove nearly so happy as
a social being as the daughter of!
an ambassador, accustomed to the
whirl of social life, might-desire.

THE LOCAL BOYS CAN'T MAKEI
ThEE GRADl:: NEXT!' 1
Apropos of selecting a next presi-
dent for the University an inter-
esting proposal has been advanced
by an Ann Arbor newspaper that
a faculty man should be elevated
to the post. In this day of rail-
road executives who used to wipe'
engines and newspaper owners who
used to hawk for pennies such a
proposal carries a strong senti-
mental appeal. It would be nice,
to propagate the notion that an
earnest and intelligent youth can'
start as office boy to a dean and
work his 'way up to president.
More seriously it has been sug-
gested that the recent inrush of I
originality has left the University
and its supporters in such a tur-
moil of divided opinion and in-
jured feelings that a period of re-
cuperation is necessary before morel
innovations are risked. To head
this convalescence they say a facul-
ty man should be chosen whose
hand is on the pulse of our institu-
tion and who knows from experi.-
ence how best to combat the dis-
eases to which it is susceptible.
Such standing still, however, car-
ries little appeal to those who would
like to see Michigan retain its
place in the front rank of state:
universities. With a greater Mich-
igan at heart, they can see no vir-
tue in vegetating for several years
under a reactionary regime. We be-
lieve they are right in assuming
that the present aimlessness cre-
ated by President Little's resigna-
tion cah be repaired as effectively
by a vigorous and tactful admin-
istrator as by those twin healers,
time and the status quo.
What the University needs in the
presidential chair is a scholar, dip-'
lomat, politician, and glorified
travelling salesman, all rolled into
one and available at a modest sal-
ary. Scholarship would maintain
the dignity of the position. Dip-
lomacy would preserve harmony in
the rhetoric departiment and align
both faculty and friends behind the
administration's projects. A ppli-
tician would preserve a working re-
lation between the University and
those who pull the purse strings in!

NO MORE WHOOPEE
Editor of the Daily:
I should like to ask if the Daily
has definitely joined the ranks of
the , "wet" press? The editorials
that have appeared in your paper
*yesterday and today (Feb. 15 and
16) would seem t'o point that way. -
IWhy must you always refer to
prohibition as a "farce"? Why
can't you find something lauda-
tory to say about the question?'
No one denies that there is much
disregard of ,the. prohibition laws
by many people, but we who live
through both periods-preprohibi-
tion and prohibition-know thaty
there is a- vast difference to be
found in social conditions in the
two periods.
I have lived in Ann Arbor as a!
professor for twenty-five years. I
also hold an A. B. and an A. M.
degree from the University of
Michigan. Let me tell you that
there is an entirely different class
of students here now as compared
with the students of my day. When
I was an undergraduate there were
40 saloons in Ann Arbor. Drunken-
ness, rowdyism, and the destruction
of public property were common{
occurrences.
As for the present, I have not
seen a half-dozen drunken persons!
in the city in the past five years. I
know there are more than that
number, but they are not spewing
their filth in public places where
I go-and I am no recluse.
Further, there is little wanton
destruction of property in Ann
Arbor and little disturbance of the+
peace. Students-and residents-
are by no means angels as yet,
thank God, but it is my conviction
that Ann Arbor never housed a
cleaner body of human beings
than it is doing at the present.
If we only put ourselves in har-
mony with the existing prohibition
laws and look at the benefits there-
from instead of appearing to be
scoffers of the enactments of So- I
ciety, my guess is that soon a wave:
of public pride in law observance
would sweep the country and few
but outcasts would be found ridi-
culing the best efforts which So-:
ciety has made to improve itself.
Murder, theft, dishonesty prob-
ably will continue to exist as long
as the human race endures. There
are always some who are abnormal s
or subnormal or both. So, doubt-
less there will always be some who
will. defy the prohibition laws, if
it is possible to do so. This, how-
ever, does not entitle self-respect-
ing citizens to do any of these
