Spirit Of Co-Operation
ervades The Lan .. e
AREAL REASON for optimism con-
cerning the problems of the coun-
ry is seen in the co-operation that is almost uni-
versally apparent.
Little or no opposition has been encountered so
ar by the President-much to the advantage of
he whole nation in the present crisis.
It is easy to understand why Congress has, at
east for the time being, adopted so helpful an
attitude. President Roosevelt, in the fashion of
rheodore Roosevelt, keeps his plans before the
public, whose will the Congress knows it must
:bey. And in the fashion of Woodrow Wilson he is
utilizing every constitutional power available to
:irect the senators and representatives. When it
.s recalled that one of these powers is that of ap-
pointment, and that there are some 130,000 Fed-
eral positions to be filled, with several times as
many loyal partisans of the members of Con-
gress clamoring for jobs, it is easy to see why
congressmen are toeing the mark.
And underlying and inspiring the results that
the President is getting, of course, lies the sort
of courage that we need but so seldom get in
our leaders.
Further than Congress and the people, most
newspapers are lining up in what might be termed
a "national coalition" to support the chief execu-
tive. When the Republican New York Post edi-
torially declares that the action of the President
s "sound as a bell," and that "the new adminis-
tration has magnificently met its great oppor-
tunity," there can be no doubt that the spirit of
co-operation pervades the ai.
And with that true wemayhave ;faith that our
country will emerge victorious from the war on

To The Editor:
Your editorial in yesterday's Daily deals with
a problem which confronts co-operative ventures
for self-help among students, namely, how will
such ventures in their early stages be controlled
and managed? Before giving my ideas I would
like to clear up a few points in your discussion of
recent changes in Socialist House No. 1. I point
out the following facts:
1. The founders of the house no longer have
any control as a group over any of the affairs
of the house, except that of interpretation of the
2. As those who started the house, the found-
ers were well within their rights in setting up the
type of house government they deemed most sat-
isfactory and in appointing the first executive
committee as provided in the new constitution.
3. Controls from now on is in the hands of the
executive committee.
4. Members of the executive committee may be
recalled at the end of each semester by majority
vote of the members. Such vacancies, and others
as may occur will be filled by election.
5. Each member of the executive committee is
in charge of some department of the house, as
house work, kitchen work, etc. The committee
thus consists of functional officers.
6. Any member of the house guilty of exploit-
ing another member of the house or operating
any department of the house for his own profit
shall be subject to immediate expulsion.
It will be seen therefore that the editor was
wrong in saying that the new constitution puts
absolute control in the hands of the eight foun-
Is such a system of functional control a "fine
thing for the managers" as opposed to the other
members. I call your attention to fact number six,
above. The amount of work done by the commit-
teemen is never less than the four hours a week
expected of members.
Now for a word on student collectives in gen-
eral. Many American students are confronted
with serious economic problems. We must decide
whether we shall continue to rely on our chances
in, the scramble for jobs, loans and charity, or
whether we shall seek to collectivize our economic
life. The co-operatives at Michigan represent a
collective economic effort to increase our stand-
ard of living by cutting out unnecessary ex-
penses which would fall on us as individual con-
sumers. To carry on such movements in their
younger stages requires quite.strict control within
each group, and a type of organization more re-
sembling that of an Arctic expedition than a
church young peoples' society.

Editorial Comment

institutions the plan does work, and works well.
An example is Antioch College, a relatively small
co-educational institution. When an examination
is given there, the instructor, upon centering the
examination room, gives out the questions and
paper, and immediately walks out, leaving the
matter of cribbing up to each individual. Students
are permitted to leave the room at any time, and
may return at any time within the three hours
duration of the examination. This is a privilege
which is highly valued there, and any students
cbserved cheating are immediately ostracized by
'heir fellow classmates.
It is a well known but deplorable fact that the
honor system is not effective in colleges and uni-
versities whose only entrance requirement is scho-
lastic proficiency in some small degree. Too many
2:tudents are intelligent enough to be admitted,
but lack of integrity necessary to make the system
a success.

-Purdue Exponent

If a student misses classes, the teacher na-
turally will take off of his grade. A furlough
doesn't compensate for a cut. And the idea of
telling a student he must attend class or have a
black mark put against his name in the dean's
office seems childish. It probably is needed in
high school, but we still maintain that a college
administration has more important things to do
than feeding its students from a spoon.

Roy Harris, sensational young American com-
poser, has been secured by the Art Cinema League
for a lecture on "The Challenge of Contemporary
American Music" at 8:15 Thursday, March 23 in
Hill Auditorium, it was announced yesterday.
There will be no admission charge to associate
members of the Art Cinema League. Others will
be admitted for 25 cents.
Mr. Harris has gained no little favorable com-
ment for his musical compositions, and is said
to be an authority on the subject he has chosen
for his address. He comes to Ann Arbor with

Mr. Johnson sent the following letter in
praise of Mr. Harris to oflicials "of the Art
Cinema League.
To the Executive Committee of the
Art Cinema League:
Eminent critics in both Europe and America
have recognized in Roy Harris one of the most
significant talents in all contemporary music.
He is the only American composer who has
been extravagantly praised by musical conserv-
atives, liberals and radicals alike. He is a young
man in his early thirties, and already has to
his credit a formidable list of compositions in
the larger forms. His works have been widely
performed in Europe and America. Many, in-
cluding the writer, consider him the first au-
thentic, serious American composer. Although
his conception of form is derived fundamen-
tally from Beethoven, the other elements of his
music have their roots deeply imbedded in
American culture, especially those elements
that lie outside New York and New England.
He is an excellent lecturer, musician and critic.
No one in the country is better qualified to
speak on the challenge of contemporary music
than Mr. Harris.
Sincerely yours,
Hunter Johnson

It is amazing to note the great ignorance prev-
alent among the common herd as to the exact
position of the law in their daily turn of life.
There is nothing more obvious than the palpable
fear which the average man entertains for the
machinery of the law.
It has been said by a prominent lawyer that
in the courts, three business men out of ten, upon
being asked to place their right hand on the'
Bible to take oath, will place their left hand in-
stead. Such goes to show the attitude which is
common among us.
If it was only known that if anyone is brought
up in court and accused of anything, the accused
has every.advantage that can be given to him.
Every factor is interpreted in-his favor that is pos-
sible. .He is given the option of a quick trial. He
is given the advantage of appeal to the highest
authorities in the land.
If a judgment is given, or a law passed, under
even the slightest circumstances, the law is backed
up by every officer of the law, every soldier, and
if necessary, is in theory backed up by every
means of force in the empire.
In these. modern days, and especially within
the British Empire, the law is one of the most
potent forces available. The law is set by the va-
rious legislative assemblies and powers are im-
plemented by the courts, and as such the courts
are the final and all powerful means of preserving
law and order in the country. If a law is passed
in the parliament it will be tested in the courts,
and declared intra or ultra vires. Once established,;
it cannot be set aside.
The judge on the bench is probably far weaker
physically than the accused, yet he is chosen by
reason of his knowledge of the law and equity.
The 12 jurors are taken from the ordinary walks
of life. They represent a cross section of society.
Furthermore, if the accused thinks that any one
is given the opportunity of challenging them, and
having them replaced to his satisfaction.
Probably the most that any college student has
to do with the law has been when he has received
a ticket for speeding and is haled before the
local magistrate. One cannot gain a knowledge of
the law from that.
If every man and woman visited the courts,
even if only once, he or she might gain some
knowledge of how the country is governed, and
how they are protected in every way by the law.
What is conducive for a well-organized and har-
monious community is knowledge and respect for
the law, not ignorance and fear.

structor in the music school, the League reports.
Prof. Arthur Farwell, of Michigan State Col-
lege music school, wi introduce Mr. Harris.
At this writing, plans of the League call for
the Harris lecture March 23; "Maedchen in Uni-
form" March 27, 23, and 29 or April 3, 5, and 6;
a lecture by Carl Sandburg April 4; and "Kam-
eradschaft" will profit by inclusion of sound
equipment in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, if
present plans for the purchase of this equipment
are completed.

the Frosh Frolic since the price
has been reduced points unmistakably to the va-
lidity of arguments that cutting prices on campus
functions increases the demand. In other words,
students want to go places just as badly as they
ever did, but they no longer have the money to
pay pre-depression prices.
Miny campus functions have been extremely
reluctant to reduce the price of tickets on the
theory that the price makes very little difference
once the student has mane up his mind to attend.
Another theory is that many think the party has
been cheapened because of the reduced admission.
No more conclusive retort to these fallacies could
be made than the sell-out for the Frolic.
The members of the committee for the annual
freshman dance are to be commended for their
initiative in putting the price within the range
of most of the students on the campus.
With the success of this dance as a precedent,
it was announced last night that the committee
for the Slide Rule dance had made the same
move and reduced the price to $1.50. Perhaps, if
