confident and are losing the fear which has so
crippled business and buying power.
Of course, it isplm.ost impossible to point tol
any one thing which might have brought this rise
in prices for it is probably the combination of i
number of events. Nevertheless, the economic
outlook is brighter and that, after all, is the result
wanted.
The American gold standard is virtually impreg-
nable, says Dr. Edwin Kemmerer, financial wizard of
Princeton University. A swell way to keep it that
-way would be to leave that gold right in the sock.
England once had a pretty good gold standard once,
too. .

The Football Cards
fTWO things come to mind in connection with
the. football game today, two things in which
the student body should be interested. The first
is the football prbgrams, the other the cards used
in the cheering section.
In the past , it has been customary to charge
50 cents for a combination program and athletic
review for one game, and 25 cents for all the other
programs. This year, due to business conditions,
allprograms were priced at 25 cents. But, due to
the fact that the prices were not printed on the'
programs this year, many complaints were re-
ceived by spectators who had been charged 50
cents for programs, and had found out later that
the official price was half that amount. The price
of today's\program will be twenty-five cents, and
there should be no reason why students should
Piave to pay more than that.
The cheering section, as it is at present admin-
istered, provides adequate color for Michigan's
football gam'es. The formations, worked out by
the Student Council, come near to perfection, and
provide a pleasant and stirring spectacle for the
spectators in the other parts of the stadium.
The cards, however, were too heavy this year.
It has been customary in past years to throw them
in the air as soon as the third stunt was done with,
or when a touchdown had been made by the Var-
sity. Unfortunately, due to the heavy quality of
the .cards this year, numerous complaints have
ben received that the cards when landing have
caused injuries to other spectators.
If the students wish to maintain their colorful
cheering section, it would be a measure of consid-
eration not to throw the cards around as caresly
as has been done in the past. We appeal to the
students to withhold their exuberance over victory
iuntil after the game, and then to display it in some
manner. Next year, we have been promised, the
cards will be much lighter, and may be tirown
away safely by those possessing them. In the
in eantime-safety first.

Having just finished reading another ' of those
periodically precocious editorials (this one entitled
politics or politicians) that appear in The Daily, I
wonder if it would be deemed out of place to point
out one or two of its innumerable fallacies.
The question is asked in the editorial, "What is
the good of the party?" and this is labelled the
spoils system. Does The Daily actually believe that
under any system, those elected would not bestow
the offices on those who were most instrumental in.
the process of getting them elected? We can assume
that The Daily is not so naive and on that assump-
tion alone we can feel that this letter is not too
futile.
I wonder if the editorial was not written by a
defeated politician? It has the disparaging tone all
the losers take on. As a matter of fact, is this not
true? Incidentally, the letter in defense of politics
is also written by a defeated politician, but one who
feels that in general the present system is justifiable,
and that those most deserving usually get office.
The editorial mentions the good old days when
political factions did not control but the most popu-
lar men were elected in a more ideal system. Why
harp back to the stone age? Conditions are differ-
ent today . . . but is it necessary to explain this to
you, Mr. Editorial Director? You write, "Originally
it was attended." I wonder if you know what our
national electoral college was "orginally intended"
to be. That our national system has adapted itself
to the times is fine, you will probably agree. Is this
not true of pur campus political institutions too? Thez
editorial expounds the evils of the bargaining for
votes. Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson
found this necessary in the first congress. Campus
and national politicians are doing the same thing
today.
And the editorial ends with the statement that
the U. S-abolished the spoils system 50 years ago. I
wonder if the greater evils have not only been insti-
gated by the Civil service system-which applies only
to lower offices-and which 50 years ago was not even
acted in its weak form.
Ignorance was rampant in the editorial tinged
with an outraged idealism, and-oh well.
A READER.
P. S. Congratulations to The Daily for establishingI
its new policy-reporting political caucuses, etc. t
The Daily naturally does not expect all to agree
with its editorial opinions, least of all a politician of
the present type. The Daily has for the last fewI
years continually opposed the current political sys-s
tem. The editorial was not written by a disappointed
candidate. The editors.
To The Editor: --
Since the first of the semester we have come tot
look upon The Daily as the champion of the student
body, a defender of righteousness, the advocate of
the oppressed ever ready to fight a courageous cam-t
paign for a worthy cause. So it is with some feeling
of confidence that I call your attention to 'the fol-
lowing condition,
The department of athletics is discriminating
against the student body in the sale of tickets for
the Indiana game. At the begining of the present
fttball season the athletic department requested the.
dtudents to send in their applications for studentI
I ilets. The price quoted on all tickets for the In-
diarjagame as you remember was three dollars. Last
week, however, due to the lack of public interest in'J
football the athletic department decided to cut the;
price of tickets below the 20-yard- line to two dollars.
This was a good business step but their decisionc
not to allow students to exchange their extra three
dollar tickets for two dollar tickets was decidedly
bad, at least from the viewpoint of the student. This'
is evidently a case of discrimination against the stu-C
dent and his friends who purchased tickets throught
him. No legitimate business concern would conscien-
tiously withhold their customers' privilege of ex- .t
change unless they were about to go into bankruptcy
and since the University of Michigan is a state insti-
tution it is difficult to conceive an honest reason why
this decision was made by the athletic department.
Someone has suggested that the athletic department
has been hard pressed of late by the demands of'
their protegees for incentives and bonuses. This isz
just a facetious comment, of course, but there must1
be some pernicious reason why the athletic depart-
ment will not allow the exchange of three dollar
tickets for two dollar tickets. We repeat that we do
not think this is fair to the students, that our friendsI
will cry discrimination,and that we are sorry sucha
a thing should happen at the University of Michigan.I

WASHINGTON -W h e n Gifford
Pinchot dropped into Washington
to discuss unrevealed matters with
Senator Brookh'rt et al. of the
progressive subdivision "on t.h e
hill," naturally the Pennsylvanian's
supposed presidential aspirations
were assumed to have motivated
his visit.
What more natural than a man
hopeful of at least favorable men-
tion by the progressives for the,
republican nomination next year
should call on the lad who has
been loudest in shouting "Any-
body but Hoover?"
Yet the governor's coming may
have had quite different portents
for a fellow Pennsylvania long res-
ident in Washington.
It is not of record that Mr. Pin-
shot and Senator "Puddler Jim"
Davis found anything to talk about.
Yet if some astute observers of
things political in Pennsylvania
udge the signs aright, Senator
Davis should be far more concern-
ed than anybody else in -Pinchot's
comings and goings.
A Job .To Do.
For the senator, it will .be re
called, despite his decisive defeat'
of Joseph Grundy -in the last sena-
torial primaries and the subsequent
smashing victory he recorded at
the polls, has it all to do over
again.
He goes out in 1933, therefore
mnust run again next year if he
wants to stay in the senate.
Yet here is the governor stir-
ring about in lively fashion just'
now among other things, setting
up road camps for the unemployed.
That he would like to be nom-
inated for the presidency goes
without saying. That he expects to
be in 1932 is not probable. That he
may hope to be in 1936 is quite
possible.
Pinchot seems already assured of
