Night Editor-Charles R. Kaufman
Yesterday's proclamation from
the office of the automobile dean
with regard to the ban in summer
school is encouraging, though not
completely satisfying. It recog-
nizes two of our fundamental ob-
jections to the ban as it existat
the present time: to wit, that ,it
works an injustice to students in
professional schools, and that it
deprives juniors and seniors in
good standing of a legitimate and
deserved recreation.
During the coming summer ses-
sion, to be exact, the auto ban will
not apply to "those who engage in
professional pursuits during the
regular academic year"- a class of
persons comparable, surely, to
those who attend the University's
professional schools during the
regular academic year. And "limit-
ed recreational privileges" will be
extended to students possessing
satisfactory records of scholar-

But along with these sensible
modifications. comes a reminder
that "during the regular academic
year no student in attendance at
the University is allowed to oper-
ate any motor vehicle." To have
this accusation of immaturity
thrust thus upon them is excusably
irritating to men and women who,
have proved their seriousness of
purpose and who cannot, by any
misuse of the words, be termedj
'sophomoric' or 'juvenile.' It is
these persons, moreover, who have
not attempted to violate the ban,
though it has been bluntly insult-~
ing to their sense of responsibility.
With these responsible students
in mind, undoubtedly, President,
Little promised when the ban was,
inaugurated that it would be grad-
ually relaxed as it became possi-
ble to control that element of the
student body in whose hands auto-
mobiles might be aangerous. It
seems to The Daily that what fear
of God can be thrown into a stu-
dent body of heterogeneous psy-
chologies, has already been thrown.
A few will always rebel ,against
authority, but the vast majority
have complied graciously, if not
willingly, proving that the ban has
demonstrated its enforceability.
We ask that steps be taken to
extend the 'summer leniency on
professional students to the regular
academic year, and that the "lim-
ited recreational privileges" be ex-

C, A , MT JI'tY



Everyone knows that planes fly
thousands of miles daily in safety;.
everyone realizes that the propor-_
tion of fatalities is no greater
than those caused by train, auto-
mobile, and sea tragedies; but be-I
cause air navigation is the newest
mode of transportation, news deal-
ing with air mishaps is still met
with wise noddings of the head and
expression of "I told you so."
Three bits of current news should
tend to impress the air synic with
the factors of safety that science1
and common sense have given the
art of flying; at least they brighten
the vivid painting of smashes,1
crashes and crack-ups which form
the daily diet of those who cannot
see beyond the immediate picture.
A fifteen-year old boy of Pendle-
ton, Indiana, "borrowed" his fa-,
ther's plane and flew, with a twen-
ty-year old cousin, to South Bend.
Although forced down by a storm,
neither the plane nor its occupants
suffered harm.... In California a
tri-motored plane loaded with
seven passengers and the east-
bound mail, hopped off recently on
schedule, caught fire at an altitude-
of two thousand feet-and landed
safely.... And down in Texas, Rob-
bins and Kelly continue to shatter
world's records in a single motored
plane that hasn't stopped roaring
for nearly a week. Doesn't this
prove that flying isn't the suicidal
affair that the tongue-clucking
doubters would have it?
There will always be airplane
crashes, just as there will always
be automobile smashups, train
wrecks, and sinking ships, but none
of them occur so frequently that
man will forsake these vital means
of transportation. A train wreck
in the east doesn't frighten people
inthe west; an auto collision in De-
troit doesn't cause a panic in Chi-
cago. It isn't reasonable.
The people who raised their
hands in horror at the excited gen-
tleman with the red flag who pre-
ceded by ten paces the roaring 1903
horseless carriage have raised chil-
dren who now shake their heads
at the roaring ship of the skies.
Both generations are pathetically

To the Editor:
Reading the contribution to this
column of Saturday entitled "Mich-
igan Women," the first impression
is that some young thing has been
disillusioned, or that somebody has
fallen intellectually in love for the
first time. A second reading, how-
ever, fixes the hand of a woman
to the article-a woman perhaps
none too pleased with her college
sisters, but thoroughly down on
Dismissing the issue of the frivol-
ity of Michigan women with an
amused smile, it might be admit,
ted that said women are most cer-
tainly after an education; but it's
the breadth and depth of education
that really counts. And another
question might be raised as to just

what comprises the work to which
they apply themselves so diligent-
ly. Some coures are easy and some
are hard; the girl's average may be
higher than that for the whole
school, but the latter includes the
most difficult courses offered.
Michigan women, speaking gen-
erally, are here to gain a knowl-
edge of improved methods of secur-
ing happiness, but it might not be
out of order to remind them that
there have been hundreds of dis-
appointed husband-seekers grad-
uated from Michigan . thout a
'chance of getting married for some
time. Certain girls date continu-
ally while others date when they
get a chance.
Companions of equal mentality
and morality perhaps have an ad-
vantage, but it seems surprising
that more of such companionships
are not formed for the benefit o:
intellectual conversations. As fo
the associations, both men and wo-
men would probably be better off
without so many, except for the
benefits the women have derived
from being taught to recognize and
imitate the developments worked
out by men.
Those who have been guilty of
making the "unfair" judgments o
Michigan women do not feela
great dislike for them, in all prob-
ability, nor are they in any sense
jealous. Furthermore, they do no
