SHALL CURFEW RING TONIGHT?
[n spite of the week's vicarious
weather and the proximity of final
examinations, the need for young
men on campus to call the sorority
and league houses late at night has
not diminished. On the other hand,
there seems to be a steady and ris-
ing demand for the lifting of the.
11 o'clock limit which is prevalent
in most houses. And why not?
Last calls must not ring the
phone at sorority and league houses
after 11 o'clock, or a stringent
voice inquires in not uncertain
tones what is wanted. Usually, the
voice makes the person at the
other end decide that not a thing
is wanted except to hang up. This,
in itself, is unfair for Michigan is
noted for the high types of young
men within its gates. The forth-
coming information of a morrow's
lesson does not forthcome. Dates
to be broken must remain intact.
The last tender goodbye must go
unpaid. The whole situation is
unreasonable.
The majority of women on cam-
pus admit that their bedtime does
not start until 12 o'clock or 1 o'clock'
in the morning. Sometimes, they,
even boast of it. The general im-
pression, then, is that the 11 o'clock
ban is unnecessary. The present
idea is not only unfair to those out-
side but to those in the houses, for
imagine what unnecessary anguish
must take place in the few minutes
before 11 o'clock among the group
around the phone, all wondering
if the awaited call will make the
grade.
Both women and men agree that
the rule is unpopular. In a Uni-
versity where popular will has so
great a part in forming University
regulations, it is disappointing to
find this one rule bringing sorrow
to all classes of the student body.
The Women's League should call a
special meeting before the second
semester starts in order to act upon
the rule. At least, the plan to ex-
tend the limit should be given a
fair trial.

$56,000 AS A SOUVENIR
Governor Alvan Fuller of Mas-
sachusettes has worked for the
state for eight years, having been
governor since 1924. In that time,
he has received $56,000 as remun-
eration for his services, which
have been as arduous and as full
of accomplishment as those of any
governor in the Union. Recently,
when he cleaned up his office, he
came across the checks totalling
the full amount, and then startled

no fault with his cashing the
items, for he has worked as hard
as any clerk in a minor department.
He is clearly entitled to the money.
The bright mark must therefore
come from the fact that in a time
when graft and means for officials
to appropriate money is prevalent,
one office holder has enough
honesty to forgo his own salary.
The act in itself may arouse sus-
picion. Few can imagine any per-
son giving up $56,000 in cash for
any reason on earth. Others may
suspect that he is doing so to hide
other actions, not as noteworthy
from the popular standpoint. But
Governor Fuller will escape most
of this slander, and his action has
served to review a dying faith in
the fundamental honesty of public
servants.'

CHILDREN CRY FOR IT-
Facing an impending shortage of
milk to supply the many users of
milk and its by-products, distrib-
utors in Chicago are wondering
whether to stand pat and refuse
demands of farmers for a raise in
wholesale price amounting to about
14 per cent of the former or to
accede to their demands and be
compelled to re-adjust all prices
accordingly.
Meanwhile organized farmers of
Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana
are withholding milk from Chicago
dealers unless the price raise is
granted. In many cases they have
gone as far as to have their num-
erous pickets charge wagons on
many highways, headed for Chi-
cago, and dump the milk so that it
would not be delivered to consum-
ers.
The situation is extremely im-
portant, for not only is the health
of thousands of Chicagoans at
stake, but in addition, there is the
danger of similar re-actions all
over the country, bringing with
them serious effects to the nation
at large if the supply of milk were
shut off for any length of time.
Appeals to President-elect Hoov-
er have been made by the farmers
association, basing their request
for help on the Hoover policy of
immediate relief for farmers.
Whether this would be the, proper]
course or not, it is obvious that in-
terference by the Department of
Commerce might not be out of or-
der at this time, in light of the
strong possibility of the entire sit-
uation becoming more serious un-
less an immediate settlement of
some sort is made.
It is evident, of course, that quiet
agreement between thedparties
concerned would be most desirable,
but with each side feeling more se-
cure in its position each day, arbi-
tration may be difficult. Surely,
national officials should begin to
feel concerned, for the unfortunate
consequences of a prolonged milk
shortage are certainly to be avoid-
ed. Steps for prevention of such
a happening would indeed be
judicious as an application of pre-
vention to avoid possibilities of
stringent action if necessity for
remedying a milk war of great pro-
portions should arise.

UNIVERSITY GIFTS
Orla B. Taylor, the alumnus who
is presenting a gift of the auto-
graphed letters and documents of
Napoleon I to the University, has
found the most practical method
of presenting rare collections for
use.
Unfortunately with most collec-
tions of this kind they are placed
in cold storage in the book stacks
where they are seen by very few.
There is constantly the fear that
these precious manuscripts will be
soiled, torn, or otherwise made use-
less. But no provision is made to
fix them up under suitable condi-
tions so that they may be viewed

by all at all times.
Mr. Taylor in presenting his gift
housed it in a metal case consist-
ing of glass slides containing the
precious documents. Both sides of
the document can be seen at once
without the danger resulting from
handling. Gifts of philanthropic
alumni can be more appreciated as
presented in the manner which
the donor intended if the are
presented in the manner in which
Mr. Taylor has given his.
TONY PAPICH
VS.
CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Whoever may decry Michigan'sl
habitual criminal code that makes
a life sentence mandatory for con-
viction on a fourth felony charge,
he certainly cannot complain in the
case of Tony Papich. Yet The Chi-
cago Tribune, consistently antago-
nistic to the Michigan code, raises
its customary wail.
Papich, father of five, says the
wail, is the latest to get life for a
pint. Incidentally Papich had been
convicted of five previous liquor of-
fenses. Still more incidentally The
Tribune mentions that Tony stole
a horse and buggy at the age of 15,
for which he was convicted, later
committed a felonious assault on a
young girl, for which he was con-
victed, and while serving sentence
for the latter conviction, killed a
cell-mate. He was also convicted i
on this homicide charge.

We really didn't intend to go to
school yesterday, but we strolled
gingerly out on our front porch
and cautiously down the front
steps-and then slid downhill all
the way to school. We couldn't
have stayed home if we tried.

One thing in favor of this

Well, Professor Hobbs, if this

Pretty soon they will be send-

to be sent to save men stranded
in the ice floes of South Uni-

By that time there probably will
be a ban on student-owned dog-

"STRIKE WITH OUR SPIRIT'S#
KNIFE AT INVULNERABLE
NOTHINGS"
The casual reader is quite likely
to toss disdainfully aside the vol-
ume called While The Bridegroom
Tarried* because of the very nature
of the title. The book is horribly
misnamed and the sinister-sound-
ing title gives rise to thoughts of I
the Kathleen Norris type of writ-
ing. In fact we had fully intended
to paw over the pages of the book
and to scribble a cursory account
of it and to consider the deed done.
We chanced, however, to open the
book at page 46.
"Louise did not utter a word.
She seemed to study him apart
from what he was saying, not
quite hearing him. She seem-
ed to be trying to fit him to
something struggling to take
shape in her for recognition's
sake. He wanted to go. That
was what assailedwher.hHe
wanted to go. A worm, thick,
whitish, stuck out its blunt.
ugly head, pushing here and
there for the best egress. Her
eyes never left his face."
After reading that we decided to
begin with page 1 and finish.p
Miss Bryner writes with a penI
dipped in poetic images, and with
it she traces her tale of a man
who struggles half a lifetime for
his ideal, and -then, attaining it
without freedom, loses it again.
It is surprising that a woman
can fashion so intimate an ac-
count of a man's consciousness.
She seems to have centered her-
self in his very soul and photo-
graphed his mind with all its ideals
and longings and passions and
illusions. The introspection and
attachment to detail are the keen-
est and most completely satisfac-
tory we have read yet.
There are passages in While The
Bridegroom Tarries that are so in-
tense and sincere, yet so poetically
smooth and orderly, that they read
and sound like ballad music. To
read them is an emotional experi-
ence.

COCKTAILS AND COCKFIGHTS

century, the long, romantic inland
