TOO MUCH VACILLATION.
Most of the shouting over the
Carnegie report and the Iowa af-
fair is now a matter of the past,
against the laws of amateurism,
This vacillation, first toward pro-
fessonalism then back again to-
ward amateurism, is intolerable,
Either universities must assume an
unequivocal amateur stand on the
question, or, as Dr..Carrothers sug-
gests, the players should draw their
pay checks at the ame time other t
university employees draw theirs.n
"A healthy and strong minoritylb
party is necessary to good govern-u
ment in the state" says the Detroit
Free Press editorially. In defense
of its statement it points out that
in Michigan at present "w!
have personal government and
government by clique or faction.l
Its statement about the neces-
sity of a srong minority party is1
an axiom of political science, and 1
the citation f Michigan as proofl
is exceedingly appropriate. How-
ever, it lays the deterioration of
party government on. the primary
system, which seems to us not the
real reason for the personal and
factional politics that now rule the
The real reason lies in the poor
support given the minority party,
the Democratic party, by the peo-
ple of the state. As it is, the state
goes Republican, with as much
foresight as the clock striking the
hour, election after election. It is
taken for granted that Michigan
will have a Republican governor,.
it is taken for granted throughout
the nation that Michigan will be
in the Republican column at every
'The defects of the existing sys-
tem stand out conspicuously in
the government of the state. Elec-
tions are fought, not over sound
principles of government as they
would be if there was a strongj
Democratic party, but over .section-
al, factional, and personal squab-I
bles. And it is these petty squab-
bles and not the principles of gov-
ernment that are carried over in-
Ito the actual. administration and
legislation of the state. The state
likewise suffers in national politics.
Michigan cannot successfully pro-
mote its rising leaders, not its
needy projects among the leaders
of the nation, for the' state has
nothing to o ffer, the national lead-
ers knowing well; that Michigan
will go Republican at the next
election whether it receives its pa-I
tronage or no.
We agree thoroughly with the
Free Press that a strong minority
party is essential to good govern-
ment,,but the lack of one rests not
primarily witi the primary system,
but with the suffrage for casting
their ballots according to sectional
.and personal issues, and" not upon
a consideration of the principles
'of government maintained by the
