Although it tooc CLAUDIUS
H USTON only two years to get
himself involved in trouble as'
chairman of the National Republi-
can committee, it has taken his
successor, Senator SIMEON D.
FESS, of Ohio, only a little over
three months to get in such "hot
water" that Representative BRIT-
TEN has already intimated that he
ought to resign his post. To be
sure, BRITTEN is a rather spectac-
ular gentleman, with a love of pub-.
licity, but criticisms of Senator
FESS' conduct have also appeared
at other sources.
President HOOVER has had a
good deal of trouble keeping his
party in line ever since the first
session of Congress under his ad-
ministration. Mr. HUSTON came so
close to entangling himself with
scandal, that pressure was brought
to bear upon him to resign, which
he did only after the matter had
been culled over in the press and
nation for several months. Although
the chairman of the committee is
elected, the advice of the President
is usually heeded, and .HOOVER is
perhaps more responsible for the
choice of the past and present in-
cumbents than any other members
of the party.
Just why FESS was selected is
not quite clear for any other reason
than that he had done nothing to
make himself distinguished, and
consequently could not be at-
tacked by the various elements of
the party for his stand on certain
questions. His presence in the
Senate has not contributed much
towards the prestige or glory of
that body, as perhaps that of
Senators BORAH, REED, and VAN-
DENBERG has done. In the words
of Representative BRITTEN, "Sen-
ator FESS' leadership of the Na-
tional Committee has been color-
less and void of the slightest com-
prehension of political strategy." In
this time of danger for the Repub-
lican party, certainly some person-
age, more appealing to the public,
could be found to head the organ-
ization of the Republicansi

Committee. FESS displayed a
shocking lack of political tact and
strategy when making this state-
ment. He has not done anything
in connection with national affairs
since he took over the omlce, but
the first time he had a chance to
say anything, he blundered, and in
doing so, provided ammunition for
the opposition, an unpardonable
HOOVER would have a hard
time placing a really capable man
in his place. DWIGHT MORROW
is a wet, and has not been in poli-
tics long enough to qualify. Senator
BORAH is the leader of the insur-
gent group in the Senate, and on
that score rather unreliable. But
such party regulars as Senator
JAMES DAVIS would certainly
furnish the type of man who would
do a good job in such an office, as
well as be one of the loyal HOOVER
Germany today from an educa-
tional standpoint is facing one of
the most critical periods in its his-
tory. Overcrowding of professions
and the inability of university
graduates to obtain positions has
led the students to prolong their
education in an endeavor to put
off the day when they must face
the problem of making a livelihood .
Young student doctors, lawyers.
teachers, engineers all find them-
selves faced with the alternatives
of starvation or scrapping their
hard-won certificates and seeking
work as unskilled laborers, clerks
or salesmen. It is estimated that
3,000,000 trained graduates are out
of work in the country.
Yet with this deplorable condi-
tion the enrollment of the univers-
ities continues to grow with the
students clinging to the hope that
fortune will in some way favor
them. They are taking the attitude
that there is nothing for them at
present, and that there is always
the possibility that another four
years at school may see an im--
provement in the general situation
As a result of the increased en-
rollment, requirements have been
stiffened. Nurses must now have
completed the gymnasium as is
the case with licensed gardeners.
Artists, who once frowned on
Greek, Latin, and trigonometry are
now required to have mastered
these subjects befol'e they can be
instructed in drawing, modeling
and the use of colors. This stiffen-
ing of requirements came several
years ago when the educational
leaders foresaw the overcrowding
of the professions. Now, however,
those students who before were
turned away because of insufficient
schooling are brought face to face
with the situation that there is a
marked crowding.
The most serious result of the
existing condition is the aptitude
with which the unlucky stud ent
are turning to radicalism. They feel
that they have been cheated. They
find their cherished certificates of
no value, and as a result are swell-
ing such ranks as ADOLF H-IT-
LER'S, or have turned to the red
flag as being the only solution of
an inextricably tangled situation.
The condition has been summed
up by a student of German eco-
nomic conditions, who points out
that unemployment among the
educated classes and among the

workers are related phenomena,
and not likely to improve until
German economic life rises out of
the morass of stagnation into,
which a lost war, a revolution and
inflation and the payment for that
lost war have dragged a once
smoothly-functioning instrument.
Since it seems to be the thing for
political powers in Michigan to call
upon football teams to remedy the
unemployment situation, and to
call upon the Varsity, as they
would the Red Cross or the militia
for aid, it is interesting to note
that prosperity is again returning
if scalpers prices for tickets for
the Minnesota-Northwestern game
Saturday can be considered as an
Mercenary students on the North-
western campus, according to press
reports, are asking $25 a pair and
$15 for single tickets for the game.
And those who already have their
tickets at regular rates are rejoic-
ing at this sign of returning pros-
This will be the situation here at

who have been yelling so loudly

troit game turn out in full force
