The obvious reaction is that the hoarders were
justified, and that their justification has been
demonstrated by the recent banking catastrophe.
The next conclusion, the only valid one, and the
2g !one which economists and government officials

F w ii.depression. That the hoarded money was available

reading the matter counter-clockwise. If it had
not been for the hoarding there probably would

Union Haircuts

The Scholastic Honor--
A Brotherhood Of Grades
F ONE WERE to make a list of all
of the meaningless organizations
on the campus, of which there are a truly depres-
sing number, Phi Beta.Kappa would be the Abou
Ben Adhem of them all-leading all'the rest.
Phi Beta Kappa and its less known and conse-
quently less meaningless colleagues, Phi Kappa
Phi and Tau Beta Phi, are honorary scholastic
fraternities whose one requisite for membership,
regardless of rather vague claims concerning char-
acter investigation of prospects is good grades.
A person need have no other redeeming fea-
tures. Thus, a member may call any college grad-
uate"brother" who has happened to make a cer-
tain number of hours of "A" and be right 99 times
out of 100.
In fact, it is almost impossible for a person to
have good grades and not be a Phi Beta Kappa
as it is for a person to be a Phi Beta Kappa and
not have good grades.
Now, then, if we can analyze the different types
of persons who receive good grades, we can get
an absolutely accurate cross-section of the mem-
bership of the scholastic societies. The types are:
(I) Good students who have an excellent
knowledge of the subjects studied by them in the
(2) Grinds, whose knowledge is purely memory
work and who do not, and probably never will,
quite understand what is really behind what they
have learned.
3) Crammers, who study intensively before ex-
aminations, memorize, write examination,s and
(4)Fakers, who are really only "B" students
but are excellent bluffers and who know what pro-
fessors like.
5) Cribbers.
(6) Various combinations of the above classifi-
This, then, is the roll call of the scholastics, as
they are selected by the modern methods of high
pressure and high production.
Of course, many of the leading members of the
faculty and administration are also "brothers,"
but it must be remembered that such men- won
their laurels in earlier days, when educational

discipline was rigid enough to make recognition
mean something. Today, scholastic honors mean
grades. And grades . .

itorial Comment
Judging by the following report of an Oxford
examination, most American students would con-
sider their courses "pipe" courses: "First we all
light our pipes and sit around awhile discussing
the subject. Then we start to write and if we get
stuck, we can always ask our neighbor. That is
what is expected. You can't write a paper jnles
you know the subject."
Evidently the only point of similarity between
an American examination and an English one is
found in the last statement, knowledge is neces-
sary before you can write. In every other partic-
ular, however, we differ from our English cousins
when being examined. The American system
amounts virtually to a "put and take" system.
Throughout the quarter or semester knowledge is
put into the students and at examination time
this knowledge is taken out. To speak of learning
anything in an American examination is to speak
of connivance and fraud.
But generally speaking, it is as logical to expect
a lawyer to prepare a case without the help of
his brief books as it is to expect a student to
Write an examination entirely from memory. Who
ever heard of a doctor performing a major opera-
tion without the aid of an X-ray? Or- who ever
heard of an editorial writer without a book of
facts at his elbow? Or a minister of the gospel
without his Bible?
-Milnesota Daily
Anotherhstrict, disciplinary measure for aiding
the church has been relegated to bygone days-
this time Wisconsin's Sunday blue law. The state
assembly voted 84 to 9 Thursday to remove it from
the statutes where it has been doing little if any
good because of lack of enforcement. The beauti-
ful sense of religion has no place in the harsh,
everyday working of politics, and vice versa. The
church and the state have had nothing in com-
mon since the days of the divine right of kings;
religion should have no other attraction than its
appeal to man's spirit; it should have no other
restriction than its ethical doctrine.
He who commits a moral sin in doing so only
in the eyes of society and of God. If he has
concern for his reputation among decent folks he
will adapt his mode of living to fit their stand-
ard, and that will become his religion. If he wishes
to indulge in pleasure on Sunday he will find
opinion divided on this ethical question. The scale,
however, has swung decidely-in his favor in recent
years. Few there who will condemn him, because
the- so-called righteous- have come to regard the
Sunday picnic or movie as just a part of the in-
tention of the day of rest.
Possibly our premise, that persons who seek
pleasure on the Sabbath are not unrighteous is
false. Certainly there are those who would con-
demn their freer brethren as being heathens,
atheists, or agnostics, but those are few and be-
coming fewer and fewer as the years roll by. After
all, if we are to restrict the blessings of religion
to these few, the churches might just as well close
its doors upon the common horde and become a
self-privileged sect, leading a hermit-like life out
of the general cultural stream.
-Daily Illini.
In the past few weeks there has been a crash
of detonating events in American life that have
bee nifica nd alarming beyond anything
that has appeared on our national or local scene
for many years. A generation of American cit-
izens born and bred upon the belief that the
United States is an all-powerful and all-wealthy
nation is today viewing crises and upheavals in
American economics and finances that are threat
ening to rock the complacency of the most pa
triotic individuals and the solidarity of the most
sound institutions of this far-famed, but appa-
rently vulner able, nation.
For several weeks financiers of American cit-
izenship but of an un-American practices have so
maneuvered world money affairs as to drain mil-

lions of dollars of gold from their country every
day, precipitating ia financial crisis that h a close I
the nation's banks. For sevral months American
people have grown increasingly concerned about
the strength and the safety of their financial
structures and have withdrawn other millions of
dollars from weakening banks.
In the midst of such a situation, a president is
