assumed. Their's is a worthy pro-
ject and one which the student
body would be only too glad to
assist. That time is needed to ac-
complish it cannot be doubted but
that time should succeed in thwart-
ing or postponing its culmination
would be unforgivea le.
President-elect Herbert Hoover,i
safely harbored aboard the battle-
ship Maryland, is engaged in a
good-will mission to the republics
of Latin America. Hardly more
than three weeks ago, this same
Mr. Hoover completed an electoral
campaign which was more than'
successful. At that time he was
considered by many Americans to
be more intimately acquainted
with the situation and attitude of
foreign nations toward the United
States than perhaps any other,
American in public life.
Since his election, he has set
forth on a venture unprecedenteda
in our history. The newness of1
this move, however, is by no means1
reason for it to be regarded with
disfavor. It is rather a definite
recognition that nothing less than
a sore spot exists in Central Amer-
If it can be that a man of Mr.
Hoover's training and capabilities
supposes that such a trip alone will
prove of sufficient import t: pacify
the already inwardly hostile re-
publics of Central America and to
convince Nicaragua that the pres-
ence of United States marines
within her borders was an act of
friendship, then it were better that
the President-elect and the battle-
ship Maryland had remained at
home and spared the tax payers
the cost of their mission.
If, however, the good-will mis-
sion is to be the forerunner of a
friendly policy that will recognize
the rights of these nations as op-
posed to our imperialism, and if
Mr. Hoover proposes to make the
sentiments of his Amapala, Hon-
duras, plea for "a constantly im-
proving understanding" between
the United States and her neigh-
bors as operative upon this coun-
try as upon its neighbors, the wis-
dom of his mission need not be
There can be little doubt that
the hostile and domineering atti-
tude of the United States in the
past has been a most unfortunate
foreign policy, and the continued
occupation of Nicaragua by United
States marines an outright act of
war, in fact, if not according to
the technicalities of international
law. A rectification of this atti-
tude and a policy of good-will
which is carried out in a manner
as acceptable to Latin Americans
as to American interests would be
a most desirable step.

Surveying the situation of last
Saturday, it appears that the Var-
sity football team was not the only
group that put up a game fight
against odds. But while the Varsity
won, the sophomore class lost its
fight for recognition, and now ap-
proaches the mark set last year
by the class of 1929 in losing four
consecutive class games. The 19311
members have already lost three.I
Despite the laughs which mayl
have been hurled in their direc-
tion, the class of 1931 should have
some pride and satisfaction for its
showing last Saturday. Seldom
has a class turned out as well after
two defeats in order to regain lost
prestige. The members of '31 should
not feel ashamed, and Saturday's
defeat should be but an incentive
to win the Spring games of 1929.
The freshman class on the other
hand was victorious, and to the
victors go the congratulations of
the campus. They won by a deci-
sive margin, and fairly. By their
exhibition, the class of '32 seems
on its way to emulate the example
set by the present juniors in win-
ning four straight.
Recent days have witnessed im-
portant steps in the formation of
a campaign which it is planned will
culminate in the erection of the
Burton Memorial Campanile. Final
organization plans were completed
and endorsed last week for the in-
stitution of a drive among the
members of the graduating classes
from 1921 to 1928 inclusive, these
being the classes which were at
Michigan during some portion of
the time that Dr. Burton filled the
president's office.
At the same time the Ann Arbor
University of Michigan alumni
club completed the formation of
its plans for the even more diffi-
cult task of raising the funds for
the carillon of over 50 bells. The
next step will be the organization
of the drive as provided for in the
plans accepted by the groups. Once
this has been accomplished the
work will go definitely forward al-
-though the actual drive to secure
the more than $60,000 necessary
for the purchasing of the carillon
will not start for almost a year and
the bells, to be imported from Eng-
land, will not be heard upon the
campus until 1937.
The class of '28, graduating last
June, was the last class which en-
tered the University before Dr. Bur-
ton's death. Since then a new gen-,
