and perhaps it is a good thing to'
impose a lot of stupid rules so that#
mankind and womankind can sit-
isfy their natural tendency to re-
bellion without doing any damage.
We, however, are strong in the
tradition that the weaker sex is
really weaker, and, conversely, the
stronger sex really stronger. The
barber shop is no longer sacred to
men, nor is the tobacconist's
(otherwise known as the cigar
store). Women have gotten into
the voting booth and into Congress.
Now they are trying to get in the!
front door of the Union, and we
frankly do not like it. Next they
will want to be in the pool roomj
and the bowling alley. Imagine, if
you can, adding the mental hazard'
of a dozen fluttering cue-artists to
a difficult masse shot.

Here's one: "I am sur that you

ially the play of the plumbers."

FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS.
The Daily is convinced that the
fraternities on the Michigan cam-
pus will incur a serious financial
loss if the Senate committee's plan
of deferred rushing goes into ef-
.ect. This conviction has not been
reached by rationalizing a preju-
dice against the proposed rushing
plan, but by an examination of the
finances of several fraternity
houses.
A fraternity is a delicately bal-
anced economic machine. Certain
operating expenses, that are defi-
nitely fixed, have to be met each
year, and the income is carefully
budgeted to meet these expenses.
Practically every house on the
campus islivin from hand to mouth.
just breaking even at the end of
the year. Many of them have capi-
tal tied up in mortgages on their
real estate and liens on their fur-
niture which will be sacrificed if
they cannot meet payments, and
practically none of them have
liquid which they can convert to
meet financial emergency.
They are now asked to find
among the independents on the
campus enough men to take the
place of a freshman class next
year. This is necessary if their eco-
xiomic balance is not to be upset.
In the search for these men 'they
must eliminate those who cannot
afford to join a fraternity, and al-
so those who do not want to join a
fraternity. It is a task which no
fraternity can undertake with any
degree of optimism. If there are
enough men available, they are not
all of a character which the fra-
ternities would wish to affiliate,
and it seems grossly unfair to make
a fraternity's continued existence
depend on the lowering of its stan-
dards of membership. After all, the
maintenance of its standards of
membership is the very stuff and
essence of a fraternity's existence.
It should be pointed out, also,
that with every fraternity in the
