THE BLUE KEY SPECTRE
If, as seems imminent, the al-
mnost forgotten remnant of Blue
Key is resurrected at Michigan,s
after its demise several years ago
from natural causes, we shall again
be presented the spectacle of an
intricate, hetegroeneous organiza-
tion contorting itself to accommo-
date situations for which it is ill-
adapted. The difficulties which be-
set a loosely-constituted group of
campus organisations formed to
extend the hospitality of the Uni-
yersity to visiting athletic teams
are so ingrained and self-generat-
ing in the group itself as to make
suicidal any revival of Blue Key as
it once prevailed at Michigan. In.
fact, we are inclined for certain
well-pointed reaesons toward the
opinion that any organization.
whatever would be ineffective, and
eventually self-destructive.-
In the first place, from the view-j
point of the visitors, organized
overtures of hospitality often in-
terfere with the well being of theI
team. Before the competition,
coaches usually demand complete
supervision of their charges as to'
food, eating places, rest and diver-
sion. This usually precludes ban-}
quets or private dinners, movies,
social affairs and sometimes sight-
seeing. After the game is over,
there again exists little chance for
mass entertainment, even taough
the visiting team stays over in Ann.
Arbor long enough for it. In fine,
coaches and players, alike care lit-
tle for extensive social arrange-
ments before or after the competi-
tion.
This capital difficulty is aug-
mhented, however, by the innate
weaknesses of a group modelled
and propelled as the proponents of
the now mummified Blue Key
would have it. Indefinite adminis-
trative responsibility, little direct
interest on the part of its mem-
bers and unwieldly methods are re-
latively minor deficiencies in the
light of finanialn oninotivnt

uvering and no whit typical of the
enlightened direction that has
regulated athletics in the middle
west, the past decade.
SIt is fairly well established at
this time that Iowa made a con-
certed and honest attempt to ad-
here to the mandate of the Gods
that rule the conference. Elaborate
investigations were carried out, va-
rious charges either substantiated
or refuted and among other things
a basketball captain went by the
board.
The opinion is held by many that
the attempt to regulate the person-
nel of the coaching staff .at Iowa
City was an unmitigated piece of
insolence and that coming other
than through the university board
of control, would immediately be
interpreted as an attempt at hu-
mor, and probably get a big hand.
No similar act in recent years has
been so universally berated and la-
mented as the present expulsion of
Iowa. Student sentiment through-
out the conference is solidly ar-
rayed against the move. Confer-
ence coaches have gone on record
as being against the disbarrment.
And none have been so outspoken
in their sympathy 'as the athletes
themselves who theoretically should
suffer the most from any infraction
of conference rules.
Certain it is that Michigan's
sympathies are with Iowa. The
severence of athletic relations,
means the irreparable loss of a
respected and honored foe as well
as a shattering of traditions, cher-
ished as culminating from a rival-
ry of many years standing. Michi-
gan, as perhaps no other school in
the conference, grieves at the
parting of the ways and is sincere
in the hope and belief that it may
once more welcome Iowa back on
its schedule, in the near future.
And now, having concluded the
second scene of that delightfully
