council. It is hard to see how a
student body can be expected to
respect and use a council whose
responsibility and judgment are
thus denied by its governing in-
strument.
jince, as, the council undertakes
another year of sessions the stud-
ents have no smouthpiece with ac-
cess to the ear of the adfninistra-
tion. we again feel, as we have
previously remarked that "a. hap-
pie'rspirit twould prevail on the
campus if th'e repressed individual-
ism of the student body could be
translated from bull-session mut-
terings into dignified articula-
tions."

! COLLEGE
DYING.
According to the headlines of one
of the outstanding morning papers
of Ann Arbor (name, on request)
the Univernity is .in imminent dan-
ger of disappearing under our very
noses. I attribute this to a growing
desire for education among. the,
members of the coming generation.
All seriousness aside, though, from
the number of pots I see around
the place, I should guess that the
freshman class had already died.
The evil effects of hazing no doubt.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1930
ight Editor: CARL S. FORSYTHE.
A VOICE TO SPEAK WITH.
In the light of its past impoten-
es, the Student council has some-
'hat earned the attitude of skep-r
cism or indefference with which
he campus largely views it. The
uncil has been satisfied in formert
ears to attend to a few routinet
tatters in connection with classI
ames,, watching the finances of?
lass parties and the cheering sc-
,on and like affairs which hardlyt
auses a ripple in the ebb and flowt
f student thought and opinion.
As each new Student council ap-
roaches its organization and in-I
mtions for the year, there is a
erennial plea in these columns for
body actively interested in repre-i
mting the current of studentl
iought .But our council has coh-(
letely missed its real and vitali
gnction of interpreting studentc
pinion to t e administrtive.heads1
f the Unversity. Throh. the
ears it has become so cmpl t(yl
body for the execution of ro tie
iatters that ideas about student

fflictions, their cause and cure,
ave ceased to brighten its cham-1
ers. The resulting impptenpy has1
aturally discouraged petitions for1
edress of grievances which stud-
nts might circulate if there were
>r such petitions a designated andj
iterested destination.
The chief causes of the council's1
eficiency seem to be two, the first1
f which is campus politics.- Ex-]
ediency as seen by the executiveE
ommittees of the party caucusesc
ictates the nominees who there-
pon ride into office without tak-1
ig a stand on anything or beingt
nown to any outside the innert

TRADITIONS AND PULLMOTQRS.
To the Editor:
If the opinion advanced in this
letter seems incomprehensible it
may be because of my utter inabil-
ity to understand the motives be-
hind hazing. The other morning I
a feeling *.. emotional isola-
tionvwhen I ine of a large:knot
of stdents expressed no hilaity at
the eorced. itics of a couple of
luckless ,freshmen. In. a .comedy,
their dro;L actions .iight have
seemced humorous enough, but
under the:,cirumtanc.es they
seemed. absurd. Simply that.
I ?fgve ben ivery much amused
bY similar collegiate scenes as por-
t4ayed in the.cinea. But there ;I
seemed -to witness an act from the
old college comedy, as it were. It
was the time of Parker's and the
Orient, fur muffs, and a small and
intimate student body. I mean that
the modern college picture, as such,
strikes me much as Hamlet in
modern dress. It's all right.
The framed ultimatums hanging
in the basement of the Union are
interesting relics from a past order
of things. They express the spirit
of their times. I daresay not one of
those Rabelasian dictums was cre-
ated since the war. What a pity the
practice could not have disap-
peared with its era at war time.
But like many colourful things,
they appeal strongly to the im-
mature mind and we must be
nauseated by the un-virile and
obscene mouthings of successive
uninspired sophomore minds.
Besies these .artificial re-incar-
natioi qf the past we have only
the antiquated scroll-work frame
dwellings which economic exigen-,
ces demand shall' die natural
deaths. But even the local un-
washed don't institute bria-brac
architectural renascenses.. Only an
educated body such as th? Student
council could shelve the vulgar
practical (if the council was aware
of it) in favor of a formal investi-
gation of Michigan traditions and
means of their enforcement, as
was done several years ago. Enforce
a tradition! And at a center of'
learning! A tradition is a living
thing; it is born in the reaction of
the mind to a certain .situation and
is perpetuated while the mind and
situation remain the same. This is
Notwithstanding the attempt of
some members of .an honor society1
to create one last year-a memorial
to their inanity.
Once upon a time hazing was thea
method of initiating the country
rube into the slick ways of college'
boys. Rah! Travelling salesmen'
were forced to share the notoriety
of sophistication with the collegians
in the humor literature of the day.
Manners in the college town were
distinctly faster than those of the
farm and small town so that in-
coming freshmen were just bump-
kins to the boys "in the know."
The ,great distance ,between their
m aners and experiere natur lly
allowed and encouraged tormenta-
tion of the uninitiated by the su-
perior collegians. Hence the tradi-
tional attitude of disdain held by
the o v e r-b e a r i ng sophomores

towards freshmen.
But today there is no such
breach between sophomores and
freshmen, thanks to the universal
dispensation of cultural attributes
by the radio, cinema, and publica-
tions. Perhaps the balance is even
in favor of the freshmen with their
enthusiasm undampened by the
classroom and the fraternity house.
This only deals with one so-called
tradition, but there are many
others that fraternities and campus
organizations are laboriously striv-

I SUGGESTION.
As a possible remedy for the
above-noted decrease in regis-
tration, the tlls Pherret has
sugge ed that a 0w: pub~ie
minded fellows go and register
twice.

One of the boys on the staff just
dashed in to tell me that there
would be a change in the taxi serv-
ice this year. It must be an im-
provement.
I. have poignant temories of the
time I tried totaxbto aedana e and,
after.;four hourt of intensl e tele-
phoning, managed to get there for
thea t: five -minutes by hopping
a pa'ssing vig-van. Perhas the
most Wtrprisg feature of tL e -
tire affair vas that I found the
remains of the cab I had ealled
ins~ide the van.-The driver hadebit
a- pebble in the road on the way
to get me.
AMONGST THE CLA&"IFIEDS.
"After 15 years as instructor in
voice culture and singing-Mrs.-
has opened her own vocal studio.
She is well kaown in the city bot-h
as a pedagogue, concert, and
chur l; singer."
Hey Joe, let's dash down
there some evening real soon
and hear her sing one of those
real old-fashioned pedagogues.
Reports are pouring in on the
University's latest noble experi-
ment,-deferred rushing. The con-
sensus of opinion seems to be that
it is a fine thing. It is much easier
to appease your conscience about
bolts early in the year when it is
"for the good of the house."

POEM.
A former Rolls editor (pro tem-
pore) just dropped i and says he
knows a poem which he ,will set
down for a song. I have bribed him
and here it is:
There once was a Freshman,
named Hurd
Who wanted his rushing de-
ferred.-
Oiw talk and one'date="t
Aud one Xrnshman for bait
And by Saturday noon he's in-]
terred.
. *
The above is pretty rotten but
what could you expect from a guy
that once remarked, when talking
about tle taxi service in Ann Arbor,.
"I gas that will be oil?"
Rolls would like to hear. from
anyone who is sure that they got
their orders for tickets made out
all right. The Pherret tells me that
when he got through with all those
slips and things he couldn't tell
whether he had signed a mortgage
on the old grey homestead or an.
application to enter the Retired
Mustard Plasterers' Foundation.
The only thing, he says, that stood
out in his mind when he was
through was the name of one Field-
ing H. Yost, Director of something.
Maybe that was the idea.
Speaking pf fooba1-AW I'wa1
too-it certainly w',L1e ,ice we
they get those lovely ,new score-
boards up (along about the 0h1-
cago game). Then they cgn ake.
mistakes a lot quicker. Th eros
won't be any better than they were
before, however, but that is the
way of the machine agegall for
-quantity and nothing for quality.

to public recognition of the danc-
ing art.- Since the reception of the
German master and, his partner
last winter Ihe has planned for a
series of dance , rectals here this
year, and. Goya is butthe first.
The appearance of Goya will
provide an attractive opening num-
ber, as the Spanish girl is noted
for her charm and fire. She is com-
paratively new in the field of lead-
ing dancers, having made her,
dbutsin this country last year in
,ew- York where, she played before
large and eithusiastic auiences.

THE CHORAL UNION CONCERTS.
We see by the papers and by the
literature that is addressed to our
second cousin, ('26) but which
comes to us, that the School of
Music is- again to present a series'
of concerts again this year. Tickets
are now on sale for the series at
twelve, ten, eight, and six dollars.
The first concert will bring Fritz
Kreisler, one of the most promis-
ing violinists of the day, to the Hill
auditorium stage on Monday, Oc-
tober 13. Clare Clairbert, Belgian
coloratura sopran , will make .her
first Ann Arbor appearance on Fri-
day, October 31, and Alexander
Brailowsky, "Russian piaist of
dynamic powers," will appear one
week later on November 7 and the
stage.
The fourth concert of the series
will find the Don Cossack -chorus
here on Thursday, November 20.
The "hoarsemen of the steppes"
have been well received on tlir
American tour.
The inevitable Detroit Symphony
will play their first of two concerts
on Monday, November 24, which
will relieve student ticket holders
from missing study to hear a con-
cert.
Jose Iturbi, brilliant Spanish
pianist, will be the second pianist
to appear on the series when he
comes on Friday, December 12.The
Detroit Symphony again appears on
Monday, January 12, with Bernar-
dino Molinari as guest conductor.
Two of America's outstanding
musicians will follow, with Albert
Spalding, the violinist, appearing
on January 27, and Paul Robeson,
the negro baritone who has climbed
to fame in the past few years,
coming on February 2.
Sergei Rachmaninoff will conclude
the series on February 10, with a
piano recital.
HOLA!
This column must not be con-
strued as the opening paean (pro-
nounced just that), of the campus
dramatic season. Mr. Gorman, the
editor, it seems is (1) in New York,
(2) in Ann Arbor, .(3) between New
York and Ann Arbor. After playing
telephonal hopscotch after Mr.

Gorman last night, the powers-
that-be pried the writer from a
headset and his two-tube receiver
to write a few words. "Remember"
bawled the night editor as juniors
will on their first night on the night
desk, "Yuh ain't no high-brow
critic getting ten bucks a month
and two free seats to write this/
column. All yer jetting is the ex-
e perience and the glory." He caught
