Editorial Comment
(Fo h aeD iyN w)Anyone familiar with the activi-
ties of the Sophomore and Junior
Classes during the fraternity call-
ing of the present week will ac-
knowledge that once again the 1
high hopes of Utopian utterances I
of the Interfraternity C ou n cil1
against such illegal practices as
have been resorted to, have almost
universally and utterly failed to
mature and have left, in their }
stead, perhaps a more chaotic stateI
of affairs. Instead of rationalism;
of the: "rushing week," there is still
the highly organized "eyes and
ears" of the kings-or their sub-
The Interfra ternity a greement
was designed to curtail outbursts ofE
overemphasis that might be staged
by the various fraternities. A tradi-
tion at Yale, distinct from those
observed in many colleges, has
rightly condemned such practices
as welcoming by fraternity groups
the trains bearing incoming Fresh-
men. It has thereby left the firstI
year of college one of uinmolested
orientation, although fraternities
have been known, with inrceasing
frequency in- past years, to start -
their bickerings with certain prom-
inent members of that class. On
the whole the relegation of fra-I
ternity activities to Sophomore year
has been moderately well observed.,
but with the coming of Sophomore
year there has been a change ini
aspect for the worst.
The illegal practice of pmeting is,
now accepted as a necessary, pro-
tective evil. Despite the fact that
each and every candidate gives his I
word of honor not to comnmunicate
except with members of his own
class, and despite the fact that each
fraternity is subject to a heavyI
fine and other limitations, pacting
flourishes today with unabated fueryj_.
and with little prospect of change.
It is no more or less than a fiasco.
It is a pitiful travesty upon thle
esteem in which we hold our word
of honor. And yet in this instance,
not one is afflicted with the coy .

TURE! f Ever enxiouiii to please and
lead all our conmpetitors in service
to oiur public, it rives us great plea-
sure to announce. a new and greater
aid to our readers. This is our in-
dividuai Christmas-Card column

It is a curious fact that two

posed as the cheap edition move-1
ment and the publishing by various
houses, some formed for the pur- I
pose, of new and finer editions of
old and new b;oks, should be in
existence at the same time. Book

and refreshing impetus.

football is about to be reformed
again,.rrhis time the reformation
will take it out of the class of oneI
of America's largest "businesses"
and place it again on the level of
ordinary sport events. The game,
says Pegler, has been revised and
revised until it now hasn't the
faintest resemblance to the original
sport. And all this just to please
the whims of its ever growing pub-
Yesterday's papers also carried
the story of Kentucky Wesleyan's
refusal to book a football schedule
for 1931. The school isn't the first
to follow this trend, so ably antici-
pated by President Ruthven in his
now famous address early this
month before the schoolmasters in
the East. Loyola, of C h i c a g o,
dropped its football "business" last;
week because it was getting too
"professional," too mercenary, far
too unwieldy for the school to carry
and still maintain any semblance of
scholarship. Purdue has dropped all
of its minor sports for this year,
and football for next year, an an-
nouncement which startled the
world, coming the same week as
Dr. Ruthven's speech.
Dr. Ruthven, told the schoolmast-
ers that the trend toward intra-
mural athletics was here and that
bis suggestion would be for a school
to cut down on its intercollegiate
program and make less noise about
the "business" of football, basket-
ball, and baseball. The gridiron.
sport is, of course, the great offend-
er, and perhaps its cure woul6
mean the cure for the entire sys-
tem. There were many more who
thought Dr. Ruthven was speaking
out of turn than there were whc
favored his scheme for the futurE
athletics of universities and col-
leges in America. 'T'here was an
overpowering element of distrust
and the feeling that "Why, it's all
absurd!" seemed to follow the
President's speech. But the refusal
of three major universities in the
Middle West to schedule footbal:
for next year, coming at this ver3

sciousness that, he has lowered him--
self. All bets are off.
The News has plead to the point
of boredom for a complete reorgan-
ization and revision of th-e method
of elections. The present system 1
seems to be here to stay for lack> of
any alternative. A possible improve-
ment, by no means a solution,
would lie in debarring Sophomore
from any fraternity activities what-
soever until a period, say two to
three weeks, before election night. I
After that time pacting would re-
ceive legal recognition. There would
still be a danger, however, in a pos-
sible regression of the date appoint-

In the final analysis, the accept-

to enforce rules of their own mak-

instead of asking candidates to do

Why don't American collegeu-
dents discuss vital questions mnore
than they do? Why are they so
provincial, so wrapped -an in their

The reason is obvious. The Amer-
ian college is run in such a way
.s not to allow us time for cr- tIv eI

the principle that each subject is
