TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1929
IOWA .is OUT.
. Last May the Big Ten faculty
committee found Iowa guilty of
proselytin~g athletes in violation of
Conference rules; and suspended
athletic relations with that insti-
tution for one year commencing in
January, 1930. Last Saturday, with
three weeks remaining before the
sentence was to go into effect, Iowa
asked that the previously adjudged
punishment be cancelled on the
ground that the school had cleaned
house i the interim. After four-
teen ;hours. of consideration of the
case, the faculty governing body
refused reinstatement to the erring
member because the degree of re-
form, was deemed insufficient.
With the latter decision the com-
mittee is standing on the same
solid, ground as last spring. By its
action the board has said, in effect,
that "We have4 adopted principles
of pure athletics in the form of
certain rules. Unless these ideas are
to be. considered trivial and un-
worthy- of serious enforcement, and
this board dedicated to impractical
idealism, the regulations must be
obeyed. If one institution shows
pronounced tendency to. violate
them, W ve will suspend it until it
shows by its behavior that it would
rather belong to the amatetir ath-
letic union known as the Western
Conference that to a "professionalj
circuit."
If reinstatement had beeii refus-
ed, granting Iowa had cleaned
house, it might be argued that the'
failure to lift the sentence was too
harsh; 'that where the purpose of
the punishment had been accom-
plished, it was not necessary to go
as far as the criminal courts, which
hold repentance between crime and
punishment to be no excuse.
But 'in the case of Iowa there is
no need for this more highly intel-
lectual treatment. That institution,
the board decided after' considering

OUR MUSICAL ARBARISM.
To The Editor:
For many years the musical criti-
cism of the Michigan Daily has
,been a public nuisance; this year
it has become more than some of
us can tolerate in silence. Concern-
ing the astonishing review of the
admirable Lener Quartet concert
flast week it should be obvious that
the qualities of this Quartet are ex-
actly opposite to those described
Iby your critic. Not only is it not a
group of virtuosi impelled to "ex-
hibitionism" by youth and egotism;-
not only" does it not lack finesse,
1fluency and sympathetic under-
standing, but on the contrary it is
by subtlety, fluency, and a pecu-
liar liquid sweetness that it is mrost
distinguished.
[ In his criticism of the music it-
self the writer showed even more
remarkable ineptitutde. Ilis Con-
mason the Mozart Quartet -might
perhaps have been accepted -if re-
written so as to become intelligible,;
But to compare the fist move-1
iment of the Schubert Quart et --- a
work of superb design and passiD n-
ate force -- with a grandmother's
veil and rosebuds is a mecre irrbe-
cility. Had th-e critis ever heard they
quartet before?;

son the right to hold untutored
and wrong-headed opinions; we1
