No one can any longer brand inflation discus-
sion idle. By respected sources including Presidentl
Roosevelt arguments have been voiced for reval-
uation of the dollar sufficient to permit debtors to
adjust themselves to the country's rigid debtor-
creditor framework on terms something like those
under which they assumed their obligations.
the Inflation would mean a higher price level. That
fni is 'all right. But if the State is forced to reduce
Ia- the revenue of the University, hardships must re-
sult far beyond even the distressing picture that
use President Ruthven has painted of what would
or happen under present deflationary conditions.

difficulties confronting the Legislature. We all

of the cut inflation should be kept in mind. '
as any State laws which conflict with the full
power of control possessed by the State Liquor
Commission, would not be effective to prevent the
sale of liquor in the Union. Consequently, if the
Regents of the University will permit the manager
of the Union to apply for a license to the soon-
to-be-created commission, and this body grants a
license as we have every reason to believe it would,
legal beverages can be served in the Union. The
Union is a club within the terms of the pending
act, and local regulations will not stand in the
way of a decision by the State Commission. Action
by the Regents should therefore be requested at
once to the end that this shall be a campus which
has dared to be intelligent inhandling the liquor

MR. LOWERY DISCUSSES THE
CHEER LEADING SITUATION
To the Editor:
I came to. this campus filled with a love for
Michigan that few upperclassmen possess. I knew
the songs, tie yells, and the traditions. As a
cheerleader, I furthered my school spirit, and I
have conscientiously tried to keep the pep at
football and basketball games at a high level.
But now I am through, and my good friend
Thomas Roberts will lead the cheerleaders next
fall. It is my last wish, however, to prevent some
ambitious cheerleader in the future from tasting
the disappointment which, I believe, has come
unjustly to me.
It is high time that the now existing method of
electing head cheerleaders be changed. As it is, the
electors have little knowledge of the merits of the
candidates, the existing head cheerleader has too
much authority, political or paternal connections
carry a heavy weight, and telephone voting is
Why should a job, which I consider quite im-
portant, be passed off in a questionable manner
year after year? The Daily has often voiced its
criticism, but nothing has been done.
The Student Board in control of athletics is
capable of reorganizing the election system, and
there is no better time than the Dresent!
It is very obvious that the electors should be
people who are aware that it is their duty to know
who does the work, and the quality that the can-
didates are capable of producing. I would suggest
that the following persons be given the vote: The
sophomore cheerleaders, the president of the
Michigan Union, the sports editor of the Mich-
igan Daily, the chairman of the Student Board in
Control of Athletics, and the head cheerleader
should there be a tie vote.
I do believe, that in fairness to all concerned,
now is the time to correct this evil.

According to statistics of the 1930 census, four
counties in Michigan have a greater number of
women than men. They are Kent (Grand Rap-
ids); Lenawee (Adrian); Kalamazoo; and Wash-
tenaw (Ann Arbor).
In Hillsdale county there are more than twice
as many men over 15 unmarried as there are!
women. This county also leads the state in the'
percentage of native whites.
Adrian has the highest percentage of native
whites among the cities of Michigan while Ham-
tramck has the greatest ratio of foreign-born.
Ypsilanti leads in negroes. Ann Arbor, as noted
before takes the prize for unmarried women while
Marquette leads in unmarried men.
There are 1,950 more women than men in Ann
Arbor. Of the surplus women, 17 are married,
1,193 are single, 103 divorcees, and 637 widows.
These figures do not include the student body.
A county library furnishes Washtenaw's rural
schools with 10 books per school at a time. The
school commissioner is assisted by a helping
teacher who visits four schools per week.

Serving University Men with Dependable Clothes for Over Thirty Years,
Never has the lovely voice of Helen VanLoon
been heard to better advantage than in her re-
cital last evening. With such a charming stage
personality as hers it is truly difficult to sing
anything but yourself, but, undoubtedly and in
some ways unfortunately, age and experience will
inevitably replace spontaneity with simplicity, and
the clear hard brilliance of youth by a more
mellow and sympathetic tone quality. She was
heard to particular advantage in the French
group, of which "A Toi" by Bemberg was espe-
cially effective. Miss, VanLoon is to be congratu-
lated on her well chosen selections from the beau-
tiful "lieder" of Brahms which have never been
sung as much as they deserve.
T HE FAILURE of certain extra-
curricular activities to attract gen-
eral student interest for the past two years, not
only on the Michigan campus but all over thez
country, has been blamed on many causes. Prom-
inent among these have been a supposed increase
in sophistication on the part of the student body
and a more serious attitude toward classes.
Last fall Vice-President Yoakum blamed the
situation on the higher percentage of graduate,
students and serious minded upperclassmen in the
President Hutchins of the University of Chicago
in a recent interview with the Daily Maroon seemsI
to have come closer to the mark, however. He said,
in part, "It seems to me that in former days, ac-
tivities ivere more necessary than they are on the
University of Chicago campus today. They pro-
vided a 'flight from education,' an outlet for en-
ergies and interests to which a stilted, unimag-
inative educational system gave no expression.
Today, under such a new plan of education as
ours, with its opportunities for initiative, indivi-
dual enterprise, personal expression and freedom,
there is less actual need for extra-curricular ac-
tivities. to provide relaxation and ,utilization of
"Only those extra-curricular activities which
are of value "educationally deserve to exist on
any campus. Also, only those activities which stu-
dents Wtant should remain in existence."'
Part.of the responsibility for the situation was,
placed by President Hutchins on the depression.
He said, "Extra-curricular activities in universities
and colleges all ,over the country are being seri-
ously affected by the economic depression, and
this factor no doubt accounts to some degree for
the decrease in student interest in activities here.
The depression has had a general psychological
effect upon the student, causing him to feel to an
increased degree the importance of passing all
courses, of economizing on time spent in school,
and on the funds his parents are supplying him.
To this must be added the fact that a greater
number of students now work, and therefore have
less time to study."
President Hutchins statement . . . that it is
only educational student activities that should re-
main . . . brings to mind the situation here. It
will be quickly seen that here it is those activities
which have little to offer the student education-
ally that are having the hardest time to survive.
Ae PLEA FOR BEER
IN UNION;AND LEAGUE
I have been disappointed that neither The Daily
nor the Michigan Union Bulletin has had the per-
spicacity and intestinal fortitude to speak out in
favor of a great moral reform on this campus. I
refer of course to permitting beer and wine to be
consumed in the Union-and if the women are
to be treated as equals-also in the League.
May I briefly present the case for this progres-
sive action? One of the greatest evils of Pro-
hibition has been the drinking of bad liquor in
undesirable places. Now that it is legal to drink
beer and wine of a certain (?) percentage, it is
clear that numerous citizens-and of course I in-
clude students in this category, the Dean of Stu-
dents office to the contrary notwithstanding-will
naturally gravitate to those places where the re-
freshing beverage can be obtained. In the good
old days this hegira was in the direction of Joe's
and the Orient. Today it will likewise be in the
direction of Main Street and to the benefit of our
patriotic and loyal merchants, unless action is
taken to permit the sale of legal beverages in the
Union. It is indisputable that no better place
could be found in Ann Arbor for the public con-
sumption of liquor by students than in the Union.
In that wonderful clubhouse, too little appreciated
by the students, drinking could occur under the
best possible circumstances and subject to the
best possible control. The Union committees con-
trol conduct at the Union dances and in the
lobbies. They and the attendants could equally
effectively control conduct in the Taproom if that
It has not yet been demonstrated that the least
harmful effect will result from the consumption
of reasonable quantities of the newly legalized
beverages. Hence the student's health will not be
endangered. This is another reason why students
should be permitted to have in their own club
what many of them desire and what they will cer-
tainly get somewhere.
The nation and the State by clear majorities
have expressed opposition to the Prohibition, sys-
tem. That system now repudiated is to be sup-
planted with a system whose avowed purpose is tc
bring improvement in drinking habits and con-
ditions. It is only sensible to accept the change
and adopt regulations which will avoid the abuses
of Anti-Saloon League days. Students should be
given every opportunity to learn how and what tc
drink, if they so desire, under surroundings whiclh

actually afraid of boys. I understand that it is
a little too early for her to be very interested
in them but I wish she were not so extremely
disagreeable about meeting them or talking to
them. Is there anything I can say to her that
