in the Volstead act, but for ten
years "has significantly left the
law in its original form." Futher
than that, the decision stated that
"ordinary purchasers of liquor do
not come within the purview of the
act."
In the decision, the Supreme
Court stated that the Congress as-
sembled which brought the culmin-
ation of the prohibition issue to a
head with the Volstead act inten-
tionally ' omitted anything which
would incriminate, the purchaser
of liquor under the dry law.
"Probably it was thought," the
decision stated, "that it was more
important to preserve the com-
plete freedom of the purchaser to
testify against the seller than to1
punish him for making the pur-
chase."
Thus the high tribunal interprets
one of our nation's most frequently
arbitrated laws anti by its decision
it removes whatever teeth were
thoght to have been added by the
Volstead act. It not only insures,
complete freedom from the purch-
aser of rum, but it removes what-
ever mental hazard has resulted
from the ambiguous dry act. Con-
clusively, the decision is a definite
blow to thoe who are seeking more
rigid dry enforcement and a de-
cided victory for the wet followers.I

UNSMILING CAMPUS
POLITICIANS.

One aspect of current campus
politics hitherto unnoted in thesel
columns is the overt seriousness
with which many of those engaged
in political machinations pursue
their antics. Recent campus his-
tory, centering around the bicker-
ing, ham-stringing and chicaneries
of the late election contributes
ample testimony as to the purpose-
ful, if inane, intentions of some of
the participants.
It is useless to recount herewith
the practices involved in the un-
written chapters of that narrative,
which may or may not be already.
in the way of common property to
the, campus at large. By far the
more affable view toward the po-
litical scene forces one to recog-
nize the ludicrous phases of its
activity. Serious-minded, heart-
bent vote seekers carry on in dead
earnest a performance which is
farcial to the other 95 per cent
of the campus. Seldom if ever
would one find such futility arising
from their sort of grim determina-
tion.
A less opaque view, however,
would take no cognizance of this
child's play, but would regard these
political maneuverings as rather
vicious than ludicrous. It is easier
to become incensed than amused
by circumstances which disclosel
that Michigan's slight opportuni-
ties for student government are in
the manipulation of job-seeking,
honor-grabbing individuals, who'
lose sight of the campus at large,
their constituency incidentally, inj
attaining their ends.f
We are convinced, however, that
no amount of Messianic zeal wouldI
remove these aggravations, and we

HUMANIZING EDUCATION.
(From Yale Daily News)
The critics of the American col-
cleges fall into two categories: those
who know what they are talking
about, and those who do not. Un-
fortunately, the latter class far
outnumber the former, with the
result that the general public has
anything but an adequate and in-
telligent idea of college methods
and customs. These uninformed
critics would do well to review that
part of "Alice in Wonderland"
where thie pithy dialogue occurs:
"I don't think," said Alice. "Then
don't talk," said the doormouse.
Dr. Clarence Cook Little, form-
erly president of Michigan Univer-
sity, and assistant dean of Har-
vard, has recently published a book
called "The Awakening College"
which contains an unusually goodI
criticism of collegiate affairs. The
main theme of his book is that col-
lege authorities do not take into
sufficient account the personality
and emotional nature of each stu-
dent. Dr. Little is particular con-
cerned over the inadequacy of the;
college board examinations, claim-
ing that they do not measure the
students habits of thinking, his
character, or his emotional make-'
up, and stressing the importance
of knowing these things before the
student is allowed to matriculate.'
There is no doubt that Dr. Little'
makes a good point. Psychologists.
have found that the results of'
scholastic aptitude tests, which at-
tempt to measure something more
than the student's knowledge, are
more closely correlated with work
done in college, than are the re-
sults of college board examinations.
To be sure, personality and emo-
tionalism are difficult things to
measure - even the June-Downey
tests for personality traits leaveI
I much to be desired. But it seems'
only logical that the college auth-
orities should have a more definite
idea of the individual student's
character than can be obtained
