A NOBLE GESTURE.

The Student Council several days
ago issued a warning to another
Freshman class to uphold the tra-1
dition of wearing "pots" or suffer
the consequences. Dire threats were
made by that body which, if we
remember rightly were made last!
spring.I
Violators are to be taken before
a disciplinary committee, compos-
ed of leaders of Varsity teams,
there to be chastised. This is all
very well if such threats are car-
ried out, and the disciplining mrade
effective enough to impress the
first year class with the venerable-
ness of the custom.
Further, if our memories have
not failed us, the disciplinary meet-I
ing last spring, was attended by
two loyal Varsity leaders. One of
the violators, it was discovered,
was a Sophomore, and another
talked himself out of any "dire
consequences."
The attempts by the Student
Council to perpetuate the tradi-
ti'ons of the University is a noble
gesture. It will be a job well-done
if the warning is more than a ges-
ture.
00
With the unemployment situa-
tion so acute, we wonder that some
one who wants a steady job doesn't
apply to Mr. C. H. Mott as best
man.'
The deaths of the two British
flyers who were attempting the
6,000 mile trip from England to the
southern tip of Africa has demon-
strated that such flights are not
yet outside the realm of life, and
death adventure, and still cannot
be regarded as relaxation for the
Iweary business man.,

CELESTE.
With the last issue of The Daily
for this year about to come off the
press, the staff wishes everyone an
enjoyable holiday season.
A general exodus of students has
been in progress since the middle
of this week, and the final contin-
gent will probably leave this after-
noon and tomorrow.
A "group of college students usu-
ally cau.ses renewed interest in act-
ivities wherever it is found. Too
much lack of restraint, however
will sometimes run into ribald rau-
cousness on the part of the over-
enthusiastic individuals. Unfavor-
able impressions ensue.
It is unfortunate, but apparently
true, that the general impression
that many individuals have of col-
lege atmosphere,. and perhaps the
only impression, is one that is re-
ceived when the students have been
turned loose for the holidays. Con-
sequently, discreetness in demea-
nor is advisable.
After a recess of sixteen days,
the migration will be reversed, and
intensive work, on the part of some
students, will be in order.
In the interim-'A Merry Christ-
mas and a Happy New Year."

CONTROVERSY.
The recent Russo-American inci-
dent, still hanging fire as to its
final result, comes as a timely ans-
wer to our lobbying group of "in-
ternational liberalists," who have
repeatedly attacked the present
congressional policy in denying
recognition to Russia. Secretary
Stimson, with the full right of a
third-party mediator under inter-
national law, requested Russia, as
a co-signer of the Kellogg pact, to
refrain from -arms i~n her constant
bickering with Manchuria for rail-
way rights. Exactly on what grounds
the Russian note in reply can con -
Sider our act as "unfriendly" is not

LIBERALISM
To the editor:
II am much surprised to find that
a newst story of interest to the
general student body has failed toI
make its appearance in the col-j
umns of The Daily and I take this
opportunity to bring it to your at-
ten tion.
Rothschild Francis, Negro editor,'
who has been touring the country'
for the International Labor Defense
was refused by the George Wash-
ington university Liberal Club, as
the invited speaker from the I. L.
D.-an insult which can be attrib-
uted to nothing else than a clear
case of race prejudice on the part
of the "Liberal" Club. When it was
learned that the club would not let
Francis apeak, Lawrence Todd, a
prominent socialist, and McGrady,
a prominent labor leader and a
member of the A. F. of L. execu-
tive committee, made no effort to
aid the speaker for the Comnmun-
ist party but made it clear that
they would cancel their engage-I
ments as speakers if forced to oc-
cupy the same platform as the ne-
gro.-
IOn Francis' presenting his cre-
dentials to the secretary of the
''Liberal Club,'' he was told that the
Club would not permit negroes toI
speak at its meeting&s. hades of!
those men who stemmed the gray
tide that threatened to engulf the
North and its democratic virtues.
It is not my intention to create
a race disturbance on the campus
of Michigan. Rather this: through
the medium of the opinion column,
to let the student body realize what
is taking place in university cir-
cles, and what progress the liberal
movement is making in the pater-
nal atmosphere of the socialist and
labor parties.'
My tirade is not against the "Lib-
eral Club" of George Washington
university, but with the jtudent
body that carries the name of Lib-
eral on this campus. Are they fill-
ed with such a stagnated fluid that
they can let such an affair pass
unnoticed or are they gathering1
material to show us that we too
have a race question on our cam.-E
pus. Let me aid themn and in -a
friendly way explain that here at
Michigan, the seat of the Mid-West
culture and tolerance, we have the-
atres that allow no negroes in its
orchestra but relegate them to the
gallery; that we have in Ann Arbor
