viewpoint, namely that education
in a Democracy must adjust itself
to the mean level of those seeking
it. In other words, finding that in
a large and beckoning university
examples of misconduct or trans-
gressions multiply t h e m s e 1 v e s
somewhat rapidly, the authorities
immediately become concerned lest
the guilty ones go Scot-free of
penalty or of academic responsibili-
ties. They are more concerned with
protecting the weaker members of
the University community from
themselves than with the stimula-
tion and encouragement of the
stronger and more intelligent ones,
insisting that the latter suffer
equally with the former.
While the President's speech does
much toward reconciling the stud-
ent body to curtailment of private
pursuits and affairs by stating in
certain terms the University's atti-
tude toward his presence on the
campus, it avoids the tremendous
possibilities of a judicious elevation
of standards which would preclude
the necessity of much academic
legislation which is euphemistically
called "paternalistic."

Think! (provided you are still
able after the melee at the classifi-
cation spree),-again I say Think!
Only a paltry few months, weeks
and days intervene between you
and another glorious vacation in
which you will be able to do all
the things you had planned for
this last one. The prospect enthralls
me so that I can scarcely sit here
and write this for my impatience
to buy my ticket and be off. In fact
I can scarcely sit here and write
this,-or, for all that, I can scarcely
sit here.

Now that we are back in Ann
Arbor for a short spell (say
until about mid-semesters or a
little after) something about
the weather seems in order. I
think myself that therechas
been entirely too much criti-
cism of our weather. After all
it isn't often that you find such
a dependable climate as ours.
You can depend on lousy con-
ditions from one end of the
year to the other.

Night Editor-Harold O. Warren
President Ruthven's speech of
welcome to the freshmen last week
contains much matter which should
-contribute greatly toward clearing
the air about the student's status
with regard to the University. In
reality, the President's talk seemed
intended as an analysis and justifi-
cation of that attitude of the Uni-
versity which has become known
as "paternalistic." Certain phrases
stand out, however, as distinctly
challenging to those students who
in the past have found "paternal-
ism" an unaccountable anathema.
For example, Dr. Ruthven says "the
amount of freedom which the
undergraduate should have depends
upon the seriousness with which he
attempts ; , to justify his exist-
ence on the campus." And again,
"such liberty can be given them
as may be measured by the respons-
ibility which they will and can
Aside from these more general
assertions about the degree of
student freedom allowable, which
are perhaps necessitated by the
responsibility of the University to
the parents and taxpayers of Mich-
igan, the President also stated that
a specific justification exists for re-
taining the students' independence
in the fact that because of the
limited amount of time in college
the training must be concentrated.
This intensive training means set-
ting up standards of conformity,
inimical to individuality, but not
completely strapping students to a
single mould.
This speech is pernaps the most
incisive and significant statement
of an affirmative view toward pa-
ternalism that has come to light
in recent months. It lays the neces-
sity and responsibility for delimit-
ing student freedom in the conduct
of what may be presumed to be
their private lives partly at the feet

Editorial Comment
College Rituals.
(From the N. H. Journal-Courier)
We have felt from time to time
in the immediate past that the
modern generation of c o l1 e g e
youngsters were rather high-hat-
ting the college traditions of earlier
eras. Such things as class rushes,
freshman caps, flag-pole fights and
so on are in gradual process of
disappearance from the American
college scene, and we had concluded
that the student, new-style, felt
them just a little bit beneath his
There is a possibility, however,
that we are wrong. We are, some-
times, in matters of this sort. For
if certain old rites are being aban-
doned there does seem a distinct
tendency to invent new ones. The
humor of paradox in the sentence
we culled from a local report of
the derby-burning ceremony at
Sheff, for instance is rich; "This
tradition was established four years
ago by such-and-such a society."
We don't know that there is a
definite ripening time for a practice
to become a tradition but we do feel
that a tradition only four years
old may fairly be described as of
the hothouse variety.
Likewise with this sudden emer-
gence in the Yale-Harvard canon
of rivalry, of the theft of relics.
This has ben a fragrant custom of
generations, we believe among cer-
tain other inveterate rivals, but
there seems to have been no long-
standing tradition of playful lar-
ceny, as between these staid New
England institutions. And not yet
has a single object become the
center of the rite. But the rite
itself does show signs of viability.
Yale's alleged theft of the Harvard
Lampoon's Ibis apparently in re-
turn for the abstraction of the old
Yale fence from Pach's studio must
certainly provoke furays from the
banks of the Charles.
Well, we say, let us have them.
We are all for inventing new tradi-
tions as old ones die. Student antics
have been a flamboyant thread in
the warp and woof of the nations'
gayety for too long to be easily
dismissed. There is something a
little painful about a young man
of twenty who decides he has out-
grown foolery. We always are inter-
ested in what a laboratory test
would show about the redness ofI
such an affiant's blood. We think
there would be a taint of pallo
about it, at least a trace, if only
that, of premature aenemia. We
congratulate the young men of the
Sheff society who invented the
derby-pyre if they did only hit upon
it four short years ago; and WE
felicitate the vandals who are
suspected of having kidnapped the
Lampoon's sacred Ibis. We delight
to see the Ibis the medium. by
which the legend of another fable
bird of antique Egypt is para-
phrased-for it was the Phoenix
that rose intact from its own ashes
just as new college rituals sprou
from the ruins of the old.
(Ohio State Lantern)
There's no time so precious in a
college career as the beginning.
Students who flounder about
wasting time trying to decide their
courses of study, or keep putting of
starting earnest consideration o
the work outlined for them, are

going to be left behind, both in

I'll just bet the natives
when we move out and
can come out for a while.

The Rolls Pherret has just come
in all bursting with fine ideas after
his prolonged rest (estimated at
about ten years by those of aC
skeptical turn of mind). He sug-
gests a fine game for theatre-goers i
who are bored by the restless hours I
of waiting before the pictures begin.
The principle is simple in the ex-v
treme. The player has only to go
and sit in a seat immediately be-
hind a vacant row of seats which,
are all tipped up. Then, as thet
house is darkened, he must await1
the appearance of a late arrivalf
and, as the aforementioned arrival
is threading his way through the r
row in front, kick one of the tilted c
seats down before his groping shins.
The scoring is easily mastered by
even the most stupid. I mastered
it myself in only a little while. It
goes like this--'
One cracked shin on part of
playee, I point; one whispered
naughty word, 2 points; one'
Naughty Word!
* * *
loud naughty word, 5 points;
one broken nose on part of
player, 0 points and develop
technique before trying again.
While we are on the, subject of
games, I might mention that I have
had several objections to the one
I devised last year to play with
milk-shakes on account of the in-
volved expense especially to those
not overly adept. One man in par-
ticular expressed a dislike for this
drink and begged for a game play-
l able with Lime Cokes so that he
could play too. In order to avoid
any appearance of favoritism
* * *
towards the milk-shake drinking
faction on campus, I am setting to
work now to devise a more flexible
sport which may be suitable for all.
Ideas will be kindly received by
the management.
Now that an improvement
has been effected in the seat-
ing arrangements for students
at the football games, I feel it
is time to air another greivanec
that has rankled in the minds
of several loyal supporters of
"Old Michigan" for lo these
many moons. It is that a Uni-
versity so large and rich as ours
should be cheap enough to de-
mand the return of footballs
