ponement of active propaganda
until we can present all the facts
with regard to fraternity finances,I
personnel, and scholarship that
have a bearing on the proposed de-'
ferred rushing plan. The collec-
tion of these facts involves a labor-{
ious examination of University
scholarship records for several
years back, and a study of condi-
tions in every undergraduate, fra-
ternity house on the campus. Due
to the pressure of examinations it
has been impossible to secure the
co-operation that this task de-
mands, necessitating a deferment
uitil next semester of our cam-
paign for the repeal of the defer-
red rushing plan recently adopted
by the Senate committee.
The Daily regards the issues rais-
ed by the Senate committee's ac-
tion as more vital to the students
than any in recent years. The
proposed deferred rushing plan
should not be regarded as a mea-
sure affecting only the 400 fresh-
men who pledge themselves to fra-
ternities. For every fraternity man
and every fraternity alumnus it
carries the immediate implication
that fraternities exercise a dele-
terious influence on freshman
scholarship. If this implication is
allowed to go unchallenged, it is{
but a step for the deans' office to
find fraternities a deleterious in-
fluence on scholarship in general,
and to order their, disbandment.
This phase of the proposed defer-
red rushing plan must be kept in
mind as underlying the financial
crisis which the plan will bring tol
a head in many houses.
The method, also, of the plan's
adoption focuses attention on the.
question of student government atj
Michigan. Before adopting the mea-I

outcome of the sense of duty, will

Editorial Comment


(From Yale News.)

The reactions of leadihg educa-
tors to the Harkness gift to Yale
have been virtually unanimous in
praise of the donor and the motive
behind the gift. Among the most'
suggestive comments received by,
the News was that of Dr. Samuel
Drury, headmaster of St. Paul's
at Concord, who cmphasizes the vi-
tal necessity of focussing atten-
tion on the selection of the person-
nel of the new quadrangles.
Dr. Drury's comment expresses
what in the years to come will al-
most certainly be a source of trial
to the administation. For the

on which Yale has now placed the

is the most amazing aspect of her

Rethberg's career was her nariifi-
