THE FRATERNITY'S FUTURE.
It is difficult for us to see how
the fraternities on the local
campus can view their present
status with equanimity or their
future with confidence. Wherever
they turn outside their member-
ship they are charged with snob-
bery, extravagance, moral turpi-
tude, sloth, selfishness, and bar-
barism. Harvard junked the whole
system in favor of dormitories back,
in the 1880's. Princeton and Yale
have followed suit, reducing fra-
ternities to the status of ping-pong
parlors; and now Michigan is ex-
periencing a wave of dormitory
propaganda which bids fair to go I
hard with the fraternity system.
The fraternities are not entirely

guiltless. Founded with high ideals
of Christian fellowship and mu-
tual aid, they have for the most
part been careless of this heritage.)
Some of the bad influences that in-
evitably arise in college life have C
been tolerated instead of defeated
in the chapters. A general mockery
of serious academic work is per-
haps te most serious of these bad'
influences, though certainly its
complementary tendency-the en-
couragement of ,drinking, loafing,
luxury, and ease--should receive
mention. Fraternities have rather
generally failed to show cause why
they should continue to exist ex-
cept as superior rooming and
boarding houses, and even this'
rafher hollow excuse will hardly
hold water when the University
can provide dormitories.
Fraternities, of .course, will
spring to their own defense on thet
ground of their lasting loyalties;
and friendships, and it cannot bet
gainsaid that these sterling vir-
tues are a product of the associa-
tions they foster. But unless this1
University goes completely coun-
try-club (the direction in which it
has recently been headed), we fail1
to see how it can permit the con-t
tinued existence of these distinctly1
anti-academic groups. The frater-

must reorganize as small colleges,
preserving their standards of mem-
bership and individuality, but
adding a serious constructive pur-
pose to their excuse for existence.
It is encouraging to note that
the alumni of at least two of the1
older and better established fra-
ternities on the campus are al-
ready thinking along these lines.
NO HARMONY.
Some six months ago, President'
Hoover as "leader" of the Republi-
can party named one Claudius

chairman. Today Mr. Huston's dis-
missal or resignation is being
*prophesied with a great deal of
certainty by the majority of the
nation's political observers. The
party chairman is distinctively un-

has been the dissillusionment of

read "Just a Co-ed's" unwarranted
burst of rancor without a rising,

kind. And no women, regardless of
how "Co-ed's" letter may have dis-
pleased her, has followed the bitter
responses of "Senior Lit" and
"G. A. D." without a certain re- I
sentment.
For Michigan's sake I'm a littleI
ashamed of the whole affair. I can
find small provocation among

THE CURRENT ISSUE
OF THE INLANDER.{
A Review,
by Prof. John L. Brumm.
In passing judgment on the cur-
rent issue of Inlander, one may
not emulate the "ego-frisky" re-
viewer and trample merrily over;
the corpus of his victim. One be-
comes immediately conscious of
serious business ahead. One reads
on with increasing uneasiness and,
ultimately, possibly a headache.
For here, truly, the editors have
provided for their readers a liter-{
ary adventure that demands morei
sheer endurance than they are)
'given imaginative stimulation for.
And. yet the work is of sound
merit. Phrased negatively, its claim
to approval lies in the fact that it
makes no effort to be surprisingly
revolutionary. There are no strain-
ings at wild eccentricities, no fever-
ed strivings to be original. Indeed,
the middle-aged innocents may
read the magazine clear through
without being made uncomfortably.
aware that they are old fogies and
therefore should be chloroformed.
! And that is saying much for youth-
ful literary exploits these days!
The pictorial offerings comprise
two wood-cuts: Rockwell Kent's
frontispiece, strikingly interesting
for its modelled effect; and Jean
Paul Slusser's "Launching a Boat,"'
much more vigorously animated
than his "The Circus," with its in-
sistent angularity.
"Mrs. Trent's Husband," by Eliz-
abeth W. Smith, is a boarding
house .romance, nipped satirically
in the budding. It would be diffi-
cult to maneuver Mrs. Schultz ad-
roitly, but she deserves to be made
'more real and human than the re-
produced photograph the reader{
is compelled to look at. She is
copied from life, without attempt
at imaginative recreation. Mrs.1
jSmith has written better stories.

The four St. Helena Gullah Tales
by Guy B. Johnson, of the faculty
of the University of North Caro-
lina, are negro folk stories, based,
presumably upon African originals.
Two sketches by John Becker, a
Harvard graduate who intends to
publish a novel, afford thin fare in
the Hemingway manner. "Free-
dom," an episodic sketch of a wom-
an who is stifled by drab surround-
ings, was written by Russell E. Mc-
Cracken, a student. The piece
shows a flash of imaginative in-
sight into the human need of a va-
riety of stimulation and the futil-'
ity of seeking spiritual escape
through change of mere circum-
stances.

The "qiece de resistance" of the
magazine embraces two critical
articles concerned with Humanism.
Fourteen pages of philosophic
speculation on humanism, in a
forty-six-page issue, is scarcely' a
convincing exemplification of the
doctrine. A good deal of mental
effort, however, has been expended
on these articles. Lawrence R.
Klein's "Survey of American Hu-
manism" is an excellent account of
the traditional character of the
philosophy of Humanism, its re-
ligious and aesthetic status, andl
finally its theory of values. Wil-
liam J. Gorman has written an ef- I
fective defense of Walter Lipp-
mann as a humorist. Both of these
should deserve well of the phil-
osophy department. And if the
public will conscientiously read
them, some measure of intellectual
advance will have been deservedly
won.
The twelve book-reviews, writtenj
by students, are almost uniformly
enlightening.
Six contributions in verse, mostly
by outsiders, are scattered through
the magazine. The heresy that
artistic creation can be indepen-
dent of thought is not insisted up-
on in these poetic offerings. It
would seem that the editors agree
that, even if the kind of emotions
we are able to experience these
days can best be expressed in other'
than traditional metrical forms,
the fault is with the emotions.
Having pursued the current In-'
lander, the reader will regret two
things: the inclusion of contribu-
tions of outside writers and the
rather painful insistence on criti-
