It is known that the phenomena of human hyper-
sensitiveness are of an hereditary nature. They are
transmitted acording to Mendelian laws as a domi-
nant characteristic. One does not inherit the specific
disease; i. is only the tendency that is inherited.
Any one in a family having symptoms of hay fever,
or asthma in particular, is a potential case and should
be studied. Human hypersensitiveness affects both
sexes and has no special preference for any type of
person, race or age group.
/ We know that this illness is progressive in the
individual, becoming worse with the dears. For this
reason it is of great importance that these cases be
studied and treated early in life. It is precisely for
this reason that the Health Service is carrying on
the study of all potential cases of this trouble. This
is preventive medicine, saving years of suffering.
Since t e illness is progressive, by checking up these
cases, s udying them, .and wisely advising them they
can be not only held at the early stages, but put in
better condition of health and efficiency of work.

It seems that about everytime we
get a swell piece of news to put in
this column some dope has to write
a contribution that would choke a
cow and "our space gets deleted ac-
cordingly. What we are trying to
say is, that there was a lot of con-
fusion on South Ferry Field the
other day when the Interfraternity
baseball League swung into action.
Some nasty fellow had changed all
the numbers on the diamonds and
had hidden the sign for diamond
No. 10. Officials Were seriously con-
sidering postponement of all games
until order could be brought out of
the chaos, but happily some fresh-
man thought-of throwing away ALL
the signs and starting with a clean
slate. So you don't think t iats
funny, do you? Well, thats because
the story has lost its timeliness. Its
all on account of that contribution.
GET IN THE GAME!
It has just occurred to the
Rolls Editorial Board that there
will be no one to write this Ifil-
thy column next year. We have
decided to begin'an elimination
c6htest and pick the next edi-
tor by a combination of a merit
system and popular applause
system. (The way they pick
bathing beauty contest winners
at Atlantic City). This is the
first call for tryouts, and any-
one interested in this type of
' work should communicate.with
the Editor, Johnny Chuck, and
then write up something suit-
able for printing. Tryouts col-
umns will be published from
time to time in the near future.
We hope that we can uncover
some real talent. This paper
needs some real talent.

NIGHTEDITOR-JERRY E. ROSENTHAL
FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 1932
NOW that the excitement and fuss over the
recent Columbia episode has died down, and
one may digest the many news dispatches con-
cerning the affair, we are inclined to agree with
our contemporary at Chicago, Mr. Ridenour, in
that the question of expelling Reed Harris was
Lot one of the freedom, of the press, but rather
an abuse of that freedom in a search for publicity.
The reinstatement and. immediate subsequent
resignation of Mr. Harris points to this. Had the
issue been solely one of freedom of the press, it
would have been much more appropriate to have
removed Mr. Harris from his editorial post, rather
than expelled him from college. In the flurry of
rioting, speech-making and confusion, the nmain
issue was sidetracked, and apparently developed
into a match between students, glad of an excuse
to bolt classes, and members 'of the varsity club,
who resented Harris' editorials on athle 's.
Dean Hawkes stated thathe had offer d Harris
an opportunity to prove his charges, but that the
latter could not substantiate his attacks. Harris,
on the other hand, charged that he was.being
muzzled to prevent further exposures. The evi-
dence given in newspaper accounts seems to favor,
however, theadministrative authorities.
Freedom of the press is a relative conception.
Editor Harris appears to have abused what is
ordinarily considered as freedom and was pun-
ished for his own extension of that privilege. Had
his charges been substantiated by facts, it is quite
obvious that some sort of change or remedy would
have been made in the fields he criticized. To date
no stories in his organ show that food lirectors
have been discharged or that football players have
been expelled for accepting money in return for
athletic services rendered.
Had editor Harris' charges been proven, the
situation would have been different. It does seem
that he overstepped the bounds which are euphe-
mestically labelled freedom of the press in his
search for the sensational. Honest attempt to
better community conditions by newspapers is a
laudable undertaking. But not attacks based on
rumor or gossip.
F ~ ' Health Education
There is a group of symptoms designated as
human hypersensitiveness which occurs in a certain
percentage of human beings. A person is said to
be, hypersensitive when he reacts with characteristic
symptoms to substances in amounts harmless to
normal individuals. Hay fever, asthma, many cases
of eczema, and certain forms of drug and food idio-
syncrasy are included in this group of ,symptoms.
It is generally stated that -about 14 per cent of
humanity is affected, but from findings here, this
number should be raised to about 25 per cent.
Hay fever, asthma and many cases of eczema
Were formerly thought to be different diseases, each
with distinct cause, but there is now reason for
judging. them to be different aspects of the same
condition. In fact, there is a sequence of events,
which can be roughly expressed as follows: Eczema
in infancy; gastro-intestinal .disturbances in child-
S (1(Ohio University Green and White).
With election time approaching, campus political
meetings are becoming more.and more freduent. The
campaign this spring promises to be the most inter-
esting in several years. As a result of the turn of
affairs brought about by the Wig-Independent union,
a new scheme has arisen as a defense against the
combination. Political leaders have suggested an
all-fraternity party, selecting all its nominees from
fraternities and sororities, regardless of party lines,
and setting up the ticket to oppose the Independents.
This proposal, while clever as a political move,
would cause a bad situation on the campus. 'If the
plan worked out and the Greek letter organizations
co-operated, a distasteful Independent-versus-fra-
ternity condition. would arise. Relations between
fraternity and non-fraternity men at Ohio University
have been commendable in the past, and there is
no reason why friction should be fostered. Mutual
disrespect of the two groups has been a bugaboo at
Furthermore, if the Greeks really got together,
Independents would have a scant chance to elect
any officers, for the fraternities make possible a
very efficientm organization of their members. It
would be almost impossible for the Independents to
get anything near a complete turn-out of their voting
strength. -It is only fair that unaffiliated men con-
trol the Men's Union completely, for they are the
ones Who use the Union. If fraternities were to take
complete charge, the purpose of the Union would be
defeated, for it is intended that the Union serve those
mn who have no other place in which to spend their
leisure time. With a fraternity regime in power,
.Independents would be hesitant in using it. There-
fore, a scheme which Would exclude Independents
from holding office would be a mistake.
If such a party is not formed, and the present
election results in a pitched battl between the two
major parties, with the Independent faction prac-
,tically controlling the turn of events, the political
situation here will be bright. The Toupees are not
idle; there will be unaffiliated men on their ticket.
There is a powerful non-fraternity group besides the
one represented by the Independent League. That
group is casting its lot with the Toupees. Consequent-
ly, the Independents will be split. The outcome of
the electiorn is by no means a sure thing. There
are going to be fewer "straight" tickets than usual.
The best man for the job will have a much better
chance of being elected than in recent years.
The editor of the Yale Daily News recently de-
clared that "the best men will stay out of politics--
it's just too "dirty." Whatever he may have expected,
he has certainly succeeded in bringing an outburst
of indignation from coat-tailed congressmen and
We are inclined to think, however, that the Yale
eitor's statement signifies more than mere disgust
with present governmental methods. It may serve
to give us an insight into the entire attitude of the
Aierican undergraduate toward affairs political. A
great number of college students appear to believe
that a piece of hide inscribed with obscure Latin
phrases will alone insure them sinecures with com-.
fortable incomes. Many imagine that an academic
cap and gown will bring them a Wall Street vice-
presidency and are content to proclaim that the
college man has nog place in the dirty business of
The idea of enting a field and attempting to
clean it up seems to be far fromA their minds. Our
American undergraduate is loath to resign himself
to the mean task of scrubbing the dirt off the body
(The Daily Northwestern)
Being earnest is important-and laudable. And
yet, there is an impediment in being too earnest.
The collegiate press throughout the country has
had several severe blows dealt its pride. It has been
a bad year for amateur journalism and college stu-
dents all over the land have pretty generally taken
it to heart.
The Reed Harris affair was good newspaper "copy"
and has been widely publicized. The entire nation
has been told of the endeavors of the students made
in behalf of their editor-contemporaries.
It is pretty gpnerally thought by the outside, nr-
prejudiced world~at-large that college students have
been a little too earnest in their mass meetings and
strikes-a little too earnest and not level-headed

22 February, 1931.
Mr. Gurney Williams, News Editor
915 Oakland, Ann Arbor.
My dear- Mr. Williams:
Here is a swell piece of news for
the Daily, if your reporters have
not already covered it.
The pastor of church this morn-
ing, addressing his congregation at
the 10:30 mass on the subject of
fasts and abstinence, and the need
for penance, took occasion to make
a hit at the community of Ann Ar-
borbor. "People say Ann Arbor is
such a wonderful place to live," he
said. "When they say that, they
mean the hills and the-scenery, per-
haps the attractiops that come to
Hill Auditorium. But really it is a
terrible place to live, because of its
nearness to the University campus,
where a philosophy 'of materialism
is taught. Life begins with birth
and ends with death, this is their
program: there is no God, no soul,
no after life, no religion. You have
less chance of being good here, than
in the worst slum of a,large city.
In fact, 'that is what it is, a high
clas slum." Ending his ermon in
a fury of denunciation, saying that
these materialists would pay' for
their follyafter death, he called
the university professors "holders
of a pig-sty philosophy." Warning
the congregation, that unless they
do penance, they go "likewise to
hell," he swung down from the pul-
I thought you might be interest-
ed in this view of the campus.
Very truly yours,
WELL, WOULD YOU EVER!

women's page. If you will rustle
around a bit yob will find a breezy
little story with this head on it:
