THURSDAY, MAY 22, 1930
Night Editor-JOHN D. REINDEL.

Q. E.D.

Thirty-three fraternities and so-
rorities at the University of Iowa
have risen- in protest against the
property tax levied on these organ-
izations, and have petitioned the
tax board for reduction and equal-
ization of taxes.
This demand is not only entire-
ly reasonable and absolutely jus-
tified, but it is within the legal
rights of the organizations affect-
ed. According to the letter of the
Iowa law, institutions not organ-
ized for profit should be exempt
from taxation, especially when
they fill a definite housing need at
a state university, all of whose
property is tax free and whose em-
ployees pay no income taxes. Yet
these fraternities are not demand-
ing complete exemption, but mere-
ly a reassessment which would be
less prohibitive and fairer as com-
pared to the assessments on other
city property.
The same condition, identical in
all execept a few minor details, ex-
ists here at Michigan. The chief
difference-and it is a most vital
.one-is in the composition of the
student body itself. At Iowa the
students have exhibited enough
initiative and energy to write up
a petition and present it to the tax
board; even if their attempts to at-
tain a reassessment fail, they will
at least have had action and will
know that definite steps have been
taken toward their objective. E
The inertia of the student body
in general and the fraternity body
in particular is inexcusable. The
matter of tax exemption was once
taken up rather vigorously, but the
spurt soon died out when it was
found that such a plan was impos-
sible of passage in even the most
intelligent Mvichigan legislature... .
Since that time. the matter of

elections have been disputed. 01i--I
cials in all ranks have accused of
bribery and embezzlement.
Moreover, an organized and pow-
erful underworld, one which seem-
ingly has no desire and no need for
secrecy, has become the cause of
very .much shoulder-shrugging and
very little official action.I
It is impossible to tell whether
the laxity of certain government
officers is responsible for "the pros-1
perity of the underworld. But ru-
mors are rife. It is certain that4
there is a great deal of smoke andC
there may be a fire.
Suffice 'it to say that the recently
instituted Campaign for Good
Citizenship comes at a well chosen,
time. It is an essentially non-par-
tisan and non-religious movement.
Its aim is to jar the citizens from
their complacent disregard of pub-
lic affairs. By stimulating interest
and increasing the electorate, it
proposes to outvote any minority
which may control the government
for selfish purposes.

Don't overlook State Street,
Depot, or Plymouth Road.

It is reported that a somewhat
larger crowd enjoyed Edward Ab-,

de Bergerac last' night. But on the
whole, this series-a new and valu-
able adjunct to the university pro-
gram in dramatics-has been poor- I
ly received.
On next Tuesday a man closes;
the series who has been for some
years the foremost representative
of the best expression in the Amer- I
ican platform art. Henry Law-
rence Southwick' has been long
President of the Emerson College
of oratory in Boston. His Shake-
speare readings have been annual
occasions in several of the leading
universities in the country, looked
forward to eagerly by a large por-
tion of the campus.
Mr. Southwick is to read Shake-
speare's King Lear, which definite-
ly marks his appearance of some-
thing of an occasion. From the
time of Lamb's famous generaliza-
tion to Bradley's apologetic atti-
tude on the matter, the productive-
ness of King Lear has been a con-
troversal matter. A large portion:
of Shakespearean lovers have in-
sisted on the total adequacy of the
theatre to Shakespeare's imagina-
tiop in this play. The fact re-
mains that productions of Lear
