should be delayed until an angry
student opinion forces action, or
until the ban becomes extinct by
the slow process of evolution.
Further, it seems to us that the
opinions of Dean Bates and Dean
Cabot should be honored with re-
spect to their own schools. The
danger is that a flood of objections
raised by others-the difficulty of
enforcement, the waste of time, the
temptation to immorality, the un-
democracy, and the other time-
honored and thread-bare objec-
tions-will cause the deans con-
cerned not to push a change which
may seem trifling in their eyes but
which looms large in the eyes of
the students.
The Senate, with a week's rest
since the special session, convened
yesterday for the regular session.
Before it lies the badly muffed tar-
iff bill, a huge tax-reduction pro-
posal, the always bothersome ap-
propriation bill, besides the unfin-
ished business of the last regular
session and numerous routine mat-
In view of the extent of its legis-
lative duties during the next six or
eight months, it is hoped that the
Senate, by its week's vacation has
regained sufficient dignity and ner-
vous balance to conduct itself
henceforth in a manner fitting to
the august position it holds in the
national government.
If it expects to retain the proper
respect of the citizenry of the na-
tion the Senate must drop the
mud-slinging, the dallying into ex-
tra-legislative investigations and
the other practices of political van-
ity it assumed in the extra session
and confine its ambition and inge-
nuity to the effecting of construc-
tive legislation.
The traditional rivalry between
the Sophomores and Juniors has
crept into class functions other
than the Fall and Spring games
with the result that the lack of co-
operation between the classes is re-
sulting in confusion regarding this
business of dance tickets for the
Sophomore prom and the J-Hop.
Tickets for both functions go on
sale today in spite of the fact that
there is several weeks' difference
in time between the parties- the
parties, in fact, being divided by
the Christmas holidays. The com-
petition may not be intentional but
whether it is or not, there should'
be some regulation of ticket sales
that would give each class a
break" and eliminate the bad ef-
feet of two simultaneous ticket
sales to two somewhat similar func-
The Sophomores-not to under-
rate their excellent prom-have a
little roughei sledding than the
Juniors because of the compara-
tively modest way in which they

The situation offers an oppor-
tunity for the student council to
exercise a bit of judicial regulation
that would clear u a situation
which is confusing, if not vicious.
In Connecticut there is a statute
that protects automobile owners
and liability insurance companies
from damage suits brought on by
hitch hikers and guest passengers,
and in ever increasing numbers the
other States are passing laws that
make hitch-hiking a crime. Thus

is a danger and a nuisance to au-
toists being materially lessened.
Well meaning hitch hikers--not-
ably college students with depleted
bank accounts-would suffer by a
complete shutting down of this sort
of free transportation, but those
who have forced legal measures to
be brought against the practice are
'getting just what they deserve. It
is unfortunate that these parasitic
passengers with their warped sense
of gratitude should make an issue
out of what otherwise would be a
harmless and convenient means of
transportation, but the harm has
been done and more or less drastic
action is necessary for the protec-
tion of the unwary motorist.
Motor trucks in nearly every
State have long carried a wind-
I eldcard bearing thecurt phrase
"No Riders" in order to protect the
truck owners from any possible
damage suits arising from picking
up passengers, but motorists as a
whole cannot always as unsympa-
thetically ignore the silent plea of
a lone hitch hiker standing at a
cold crossroad.
Hitch hiking is not to be wholly
condemned provided the passenger
shows appreciation for the favor byj

The attitude of the Law and
Medical schools toward the auto
* ban, as revealed in statements by
Dean Bates and Dean Cabot, should
be and is one of cooperation with
the auto-bail department of the
deans' office. A break with the
University's administrative policy
on this matter would be productive
of an unfortunate row-especially
at this time when the new admin-
istration is trying to steer the Uni-
versity away from the reefs on
which the last administration
foundered. But in what might be
called "obiter dicta" the deans of
our most important graduate
schools have expressed the opinion
that the automobile regulation
might well be waived in favor of
graduate students as men of ma-
turer interests and more serious in-
tent. This has long been the con-
tention of The Daily, and it is
gratifying to see it thus honored in
private acceptance if not as yet}
in actual reform.
To avoid internal dissension at a
time when the University is striving
to find her feet, the graduate deans
have not broken with the dean of
men's office to the extent' of re-
fusing to penalize violators. Rather
have they devised a penalty less
biting than the suspension provided
in the literary college; but withal
a penalty rigorous enough to make
a would-be driver think twice. It
seems likely, also, that sec''d vio-
lators will receive no mercy. But
behind this alternative system of
penalties we cannot help feeling
that the private reaction of the
deans is one of havinig to enforce
the regulation since it exists, but
of wishing such a petty annoyance
and irritation be gone.I
The reticence of the deans to de-
mand a change in the regulation

'Theodore Roosevelt and the well-j
known "white house kids," come to
print in the recent book of Earle
Looker, The White House Gang.-
This book should prove interesting
to the majority of Americans, for
it has long been felt by most of us
that the Roosevelt episode in the
White House is a kind of national!
epic. Regardless of what our po-
litical opinions may be, we look at
Teddy as the great heart, and as
the ideal of companionship between
father and son. Speaking of the
book, Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, wi-
dow of the deceased president,
says: "It has given me great plea-
sure. The two that have gone re-
turn in these pages-and the mer-
ry White House days for a back-
ground." It has received the ap-
plaud of several important maga-
zine editors.

There has always been much con-'
jecturing about the identity of the
novelist who wrote the . Glorious}
Apollo. There have been many
j (not always flattering) suggestions
as to why she calls herself L. Adams
Beck, alias E. Barrington, alias
Louis Moresby. This writer has
published another book, The Gar-
den of Vision, in which she describ-
es the emotional and spiritual ex-
periences of a modern English girl
in contact with the ancient wisdom
of Buddhist Japan. We suspect
that this volume is the outcome of
the Story of Oriental Philosophy
which was written by Mrs. Beck
shortly over a year ago, a book in
which she discussed in Will Durant
fashion the philosophies of the
East. Mrs. Beck in her biographi-
cal writings-if such distinction
dare be placed upon her Glorious
Apollo and Divine Lady-did much
to provoke scholars in biographical
criticism. Above all, the story of
Lord Byron, was deemed the most
unfair, for in this book critics de-
clared she not only did injustice
to the hero but to many other lit-
erary personages of the time as
well. Leigh Hunt and Percy Bysshe
Shelley figured among the misre-
presented. She placed herself in
I the ranks of the fiction-biograph-
ers with these works, a 'sin whvich
can hardly be forgiven. Copies of
the -new book have been sent to
shops already.

In the direction too. e;pecially in
the part wherei humor is in tro-
duced, there is a deft ness and sub-
tley that would be a novelty on the i
American screen. I refer particu-
larly to the long-shot of the five I
skeleton's riding of the bony re-
mains of the inn-keeper's mare.
The humor sifts into the run of
scene unobtrusively and with no
sudden bang, so characceristic of
our own.
It would be interesting, indeed,
to witness the result of the filming
of Hardy, now that Phillpots hias
been "done so successfully. There
are certain of his works that could
be splendidly arranged for the
screen. "Egdon Heath" and "Far!
From the Maddening Crowd" in
particular, for they, too, portray in
scene Hardy's bit of England just
as "Widecombe Fair" does.
