favor are the ones who have not
driven, while the class of students
against which the ban was aimed
have been the ones to play fast and
loose with their cars.
The University under President
Ruthven is fortunately not wedded
to universal enforcement, and sees
the experiments of the past as ra-
ther a dismal failure. The next ex-
periment, the new President sug-
gests, "might be to give permits to
certain groups registered in the
graduate schools, as representing a
large proportion of married and
mature students." This suggestion,
of course, is hopeful, but its taking
effect seems to be at least a year
off, while letter-strict enforcement
puts the ban to a final test.
The question uppermost in our
minds is how much more testing
will be necessary to convince the
Regents that while they are trying
with mediocre success to save the
weaklings , from themselves, an
overwhelming majority of sincere
students are swallowing with what
good grace they can muster a ra-
ther rank injustice.. If the present
semester or the present year pro-
duces results no more definitely
good or bad, will they reject of-
ficial requests for modification -
such requests as the one from the
dean's office which they rejected
last June?
The Daily believes after patient
and dispassionate study that it is
giving voice to the concensus of
student opinion when it recom-
mends the following platform of
auto ban modification: that all
graduate students and juniors and
seniors in good standing be given
permits to drive automobiles.
Petty thievery has been prevalent
on the Michigan campus for some
time, but it has never involved as
much property as it has this year.
Already several fraternity houses
have been robbed and members of
the various organizations have lost
money, watches, and jewelry of all
sorts. But this was probably the
work of outsiders.
Another and perhaps even more
serious situation has arisen in con-
nection with the theft of invalu-
able books, both from the main li-
brary and from the Pendleton li
brary in the Union, by the students
themselves. Last year several hun-
dred books were missed from the
Library, and it was discovered tha
one student had collected enough
books to start a circulating library
of his own.
Sodisturbing has this matter be-
come that the Union Board of Di-
rectors, at their last meeting, con-
sidered refusing to admit student
to the Pendleton library if they
carried books in with them. This
they believe, will make it much
more difficult to carry books from
the room without the knowledgeo
the attendant, and will decrease
the wholesale depletion of books
many of which are autographed by
their authors and are first editions
-boA lEnplAlput pu sa l.IAS
umes of great value have never
been placed on the shelves because
it was feared that would be stolen
Such a condition should never
exist. On the campuses of many
universities throughout the coun-
try there is an unwritten code
which prevents students from any
stealing whatever. In case an in-
stance of larcency is discovered, the

student is ostracized, considerable
publicity is given the case, and the
men involved are usually expelled
Library books are for the use of
every student and should be con-
sidered as such by all. The sel-
fishness and thoughtlessness of the
men who practice this thievery are
not deserving of any consideration,
and drastic action must be taken
against them.

Many students have expressed
surprise and chagrin at the most
recent official interpretation of the
auto ban-an announcement that
permission to drive an automobile
does not include the privilege of
carrying other University students.
Surprise at such an announcement
does not seem to be entirely war-
ranted, for this interpretation is
quite in accord with the Univer-
sity's present policy in respect to'
the ban-a policy of literal inter-
pretation and strict enforcement.
Although this policy may be, and
doubtless is, instrumental in caus-
ing serious inconvenience and irri-
tation to many students, that at-
tempt would be distinctly mis-
guided which would make it a
shibboleth in a students' rights'
campaign, inasmuch as this year's
brand of strict enforcement is pri-'
marily an experiment. President
Ruthven recognizes that the auto-
mobile provides a safe and desira-
ble recreation and time-saver for
most students, and that adminis-,
trative limitations on its use havej
by no means created a satisfactory;
The still inchoate nature of the
automobile ban is evidenced by a
brief review of its history. At the
beginning of the present decade an1
inquiry sent to certain parents who
would be prejudiced against stu-
dent automobiles elicited a senti-
ment in favor of a ban. Eightl
years ago, in 1921, there was a dis-
cussion between President Burton
and the Regents as to the advisa-
bility of an auto ban. The Regents:
had reached a favorable conclusion
by the time of President Little's in-
auguration, and when he approved'
the plan in its general aspects, the
ban was officially established.
President Little was heartily in
favor oT the modified ban of 1926-i
27, which required all student-own- i
ed cars to be registered, but its small!

Dear Lark:

than a group of friends. . .

we've never been on a party

A Review by Margaret Thompson 1
Palmer Christian, University Or-
ganist, gave the third concert in
the Twilight Organ Recital Series I
yesterday afternoon. The program
was well arranged and aptly dem-
onstrated the technique and finish
of Mr. Christian's playing. The,
opening number was a Rhapsody in
D by Saint-Saens based on folk
tunes of Brittany. "Kammennoi
Ostrow" by Rubenstein was the.
next selection followed by "Sonata
No. 1 in E Minor" by Rogers. The
four movements of the Sonata, the
majestic allegro, the soft adagio,
dainty scherzo and the heavy music
'of the fugue showed the wide range
of the artist's console. Soft pastel
music followed, "The Legend of the
Mountain" by Karg-Elert. Mr.
Christian interpreted it with a fine.
sense of its poetic value.
A well known composition by
Grieg "In the Morning" was the
