THE MOIST REALITY.
Who is going to take the impres-
sionis of a school-boy against the
word of college men of many years
of experience?" a conspientious ob-
jector recently wrote to these col-
umns in refutation of our opinion
that prohibition had failed in the
country's universities. He quoted
Prosident Angell of Yale, Lowell of
Harvard, and Hibben of Princeton
to the effect. that their students
drink less liquor than they did be-
fore prohibition. Ergo, our con-
scientious objector reasons, prohi-
bition has not failed in the coun-
try's universities; on the contrary,
it is a howling success.
Therefore, from The Daily's ex-

pression of the opinion that prohi-
bition has failed in the universities,
this conscientious objector deduces
not only that The Daily deliberate-
ly uses tawdy sensationalism to
blacken Michigan's reputation, but
that Michigan students have a
"raging thirst" and a "lawless dis-
position" over and above that of
students at, for instance, Yale, Har-
vard, and Princeton. To see that
this deduction is unwarranted, one
has only to be faintly familiar with
the undergraduate life of any big
university; liquor is a problem, no
less at Michigan, on every large
campus in the country.
Though we fail to see how even
the omniscience ascribed by our
conscientious objector to great col-
lege presidents can positively know;
this, it may well be that the sum
total of university-consumed liquor
is less now than before prohibition.
We contend, however, that this
fact, cannot be made the sole cri-
terion of prohibition's success in
the universities. The stubborn
drink tradition in American col-
lege life has by no means been
rooted out, there is still plenty of
liquor readily available and rapidly
consumed, and as we see it, prohi-
bition has served chiefly to add a
string of social evils that rise from
making the use of liquor technically
a forbidden affair.
