Whether liquor advertisements in
the Harvard "Crimson" and "Lani-
poon" are construed to have been
printed in jest or not is a matter
for the officials there to decide. The
case does, however, indicate that
the student attitude toward prohi-
bition is not one of deep respect,
such as the Constitution of the
United States ordinarIly commands.
These advertisements were in all
probability printed merely as jokes
and nothing more, but the ~stimu-
lus that prompted them was con-
siderably deeper than these exter-
nals show. The law went into ef-
feet ten years ago, when the stu-
dents of average college age today
were too young to appreciate its
full meaning. Yet, the theory that
those who never drank liquor could
be educated not to want it has ap-
parently been shattered, either be-
cause the education on this subject
has been none too good or because
the taste for liquor cannot be de-
stroyed by a law.
In view of the fact that the col-
Tege men of today are being trained
to be the leaders of tomorrow, just
what will happen to the Eighteenth
v amendment in twenty. years is a
matter of conjecture. The fact re-
mains that college students do not
want prohibition.

SPIES!
With no small measure of cha
grin and disappointment The Dail
takes this cognizance of a vicious,
reactionary, and intolerable prac
tice recently instituted by the
dean's office: to wit, the sending o
spies to fraternity dances to snoop
for traces of liquor. This under-
cover, underhandedrmethod of try
ing to make discipline 100 per cen
efficient we hold to be an utter sub
version of the principles of fairnes
and honesty that heretofore have
actuated the disciplinary forces o
the University. We hold no brie
for the fraternities that have al
ready been disciplined through es.
pionage, but we will not sit by, si-
lently consenting, while a childish
spy-system, made notorious by
Dean Clark of Illinois, is used to
frighten men and women into be-
ing .good.
A decent party has been defined
by the dean's office as one at which
there is notia trace of liquor. By
that definition we do not recall in
three years more than two or three
decent parties, nor do we hereby
admit that the student body is
caught in the toils of' moral turpi-
tude. To us there is a vast dif-
ference between objectionable
drunken conduct and the traces of
liquor which the dean has made
criteria of indecency, and there is
an aura of fanaticism and intoler-
ance about a University disciplin-
arian who will not accept this dif,
ference as the rest of the country
has accepted it.
There will arise, of course, bor-
der-line cases in which traces of
liquor are noticeable,the standard
of conduct jubilant but not obscene.
It is not our position to define how
much of this Is proper and where
the bounds of decency are over-
stepped, but we cannot feel that
student tools of the dean's office,
looking for the worst and whisper-
ing their evidence in the dean's ear,
are in any better position to judge.
