ment that The Daily was a private enterprise and
could print what it plea'sed offers a logical ex-
planation; and the vulgar editorial about the
same case must certainly have been of more harm
to the paper's reputation than to the group at
whom it was directed. One can't doubt that if
there had been more time for consideration that
editorial would never have been printed.
It must be noted that the above mentioned
threat could not have been composed by a stu-
dent of Socialism, which science clearly indicates
that any social institution founded on private
capital, as is The Michigan Daily, must inevitably
be prostituted to class distinction. Mr. Gilbreth
himself informed the group that if they wanted
a truly free press they'd have to initiate a paper
that took in no advertising.
No Socialist can experience any desire for re-
venge on Mr. Gilbreth in the ballot-box case-
only pity, or at the most, contempt.

Time To Pay The Debt
To Fraternities . .
ONCE AGAIN we feel called upon
to ask the Senate Committee on
Student Affairs to lift one of their objectionable
and oppressive fraternity rulings and save many
of the houses on the campus from ruin.
On the Senate Committee, one can place the
brunt of the blame for the unfortunate financial
straits in which the majority of houses find them-
selves today.
It was this body that imposed the "noble ex-
periment" of deferring rushing last year which,
although finally repealed, crippled many houses
temporarily and some, at least, permanently.
We realize that there are too many fraternities
on the campus. We know that some of them will
have to close their doors to meet the demands of
creditors. However, we are convinced that the
Senate Committee is, to a great extent, responsi-
ble for the unfortunate situation.
Fraternity men are still paying for the deferred
rushing ruling. In all probability they will con-
tinue to pay for it for several years.
With this in mind, we fail to see how the Com-
mittee can refuse the fraternities any reasonable
request, especially if the request deals with an-
other ruling that is a financial burden to fra-
ternity men.
Therefore, we urge the Senate Committee to
allow freshmen to live in fraternity houses during
the second semester of this year. We assure them
that there are few houses that are fully occupied.
We remind them that the lives of many organiza-
tions in which the tradition of the University is
interwoven depend on immediate relief measures.
We call to their attention the fact that fraterni-
ties and sororities solved the rooming problem for
the administration in the pre-dormitory days and
are still a valuable asset in this line. Finally, we
point out by repealing the ruling that prohibits
first-year men from residing in fraternity houses,
they will relieve every fraternity man of an op-
pressive financial strain.

OPTOMETRIST 'QUACKS'
AND THE USE OF EYE DROPS
To The Editor:
In the column of your paper entitled "Student
Health" there are some facts which I do not be-
lieve are absolutely true. I do, however, congrat-
ulate you for your just criticism of the optome-
trist because he is an eyesore in the medical pro-
fession and operates under the same category
as do "patent" or "quack" medicine dispensers.
You state that "The examination of eyes and
the fitting of glasses without the aid of 'drops'
are based on guesswork." This is not true. The
use of "'drops" is entirely dependent upon the
physical nature of the patient .With some people
"drops" are an absolute necessity and with others
they are an equally absolute impossibility.
I am not writing this to correct an error as an
error but to protect the oculists. Someone might
read your article and then go to an oculist who
in his or her case did not use "drops" because
it would be of no use. The person would lose con-
fidence in the doctor and spread his fears so
that the doctor's practice might be partially
ruined.
I hope that this misstatement will be corrected
in a future number of the Daily." .

MILLION DOLLAR BUILDINGS
GO TO THE DOGS
To The Editor:
I have heard rumors that a filling station is
being erected on State street directly opposite
Angell Hall, The construction done so far seems
to bear this out.
It doesn't seem possible that those responsible
for the granting of the license would use such
poor judgment as to permit this. Perhaps there
are no zoning laws in this city but a legal tech-
nicality of some sort could have prevented it.
If this sort of policy continues, it won't be long
before a hot dog stand will be set up inside of
the i Law School group.
What is the sense in erecting million dollar
buildings, if the surroundings are permitted to
go to the dogs?

down of the walls of CASTE. Many of your well-
wishers believe that you must do that entirely
by yourself. Others equally sincere think you
should retain a partnership with Britain until
the job is more nearly completed. The choice of
one of these lines of action is one of your minor
problems.
Here follows what is, or shortly will be, another
problem which cannot be solved for you by any
sympathetic or interfering outsiders: At the pres-
ent rate of increase your population will be
doubled in less than seventy years.

Willis..._..............Gene Raymond
Barbara .................... Mary Astor
Even if you don't like Harlow very much you'll
like this turbulent romance, with its setting in
French Indo-China near Saigon.
Harlow, who has marvelous speaking lines, plays
Lily, an amiable harlot who walks in, unasked, on
Dennis Rubber plantation in the jungle. She in-
sidiously works herself into the picture until the
time when Dennis finds he cannot do without
her, and the picture ends thus. But that's not all.
Starry-eyed Mary Astor has her hand in on the
fun and there is the barest touch of the eternal
triangle under. sultry tropic, skies. As Dennis
nurses her husband back to health after a fever
attack, he falls in love with Barbara (Mary Astor).
The rest isn't hard to imagine, but their affair
is startlingly brief, and a little innocuous pistol-
play reconciliation in the end brings things out
well and returns Dennis to his lovable harlot.
Harlow not only has wonderful lines to read
but she reads them excellently. Her sarcasm and
her eloquent use of a twisting mouth are price-
less. And she's the same old voluptuous Harlow,
but this picture is not dirty. It is just plain
funny, particularly in scenes such as when Dennis
is trying to keep her from bathing in the drink-
ing-water barrel.
The movies seem to be running to educational
shots inserted in the story, and this is no excep-
tion; however, we commend the idea. There are
some excellent shots of a rubber plantation and
the production of the rubber, and some nice scenes
in the surrounding jungle, which may or may not
be very authentic.
The Charlie Chase comedy, "Girl Grief," in
which Charlie has adventures in a girls' board-
ing school with about 25 kittens and a large dose
of catnip is uproariously funny. How they faked
the photographs to make those catlets spring
into the air is beyond the reviewer. --A. E. B.

To The Editor:
Professor Anning's article in The Daily of Nov.
8 on "Ghandi is neither the problem nor the
solution," shows him "not an enemy of India,"
but it does reflect his opinion to justify the "dog-j
in-the-manger" policy of the British Imperialism
in India. My noble professor ought to know, even
through his scanty knowledge of the Indian situa-
tion, that it is not a question of British "trustee-
ship" of India, but is a question of economic ex-
ploitation by Britain.1
British administration of India, in proportion
to India's wealth and the average income of her7
citizens, is the most expensive in the world, the
personnel of which is almost entirely British. For
example, the Premier of Great Britain gets a'
salary of $25,000 a year, President Hoover is paid]
$75,000, while the British Viceroy of India is paid;
from the pockets of the Indian taxpayers, at thej
normal rate of exchange, $96,000 a year. During
the World War India was forced to contribute-
to Britain more than 1,100,000 men with their pay
at home and overseas, and an entire supply of
general stores and medical equipment. Besides,
the British Viceroy, against the protests of the
Indian people, paid to the Imperial government
the sum of $500,000,000, and declared it a dona-
tion on behalf of India. What did India get in
return? The massacre of 1,500 people, and the
laws prohibiting the assembly of more than five
people. That Britain holds India to dispose of
her goods, is revealed by the fact that till re-
cently 65 per cent of the Indian imports came
from "Britain, and, thanks to the Indian boycott
which Britain is trying so desperately to suppress,i
the original figures have dropped about one-half.
In the name of protection, law, order, and world
peace, Britain has locked up 60,000 intellectuals
of India, merely because they demanded freedom;
she has either deposed or forced to abdicate those
native princes who happen to be in sympathy
with the nationalists-the rulers of Nabha, In-
dore, Mundie, Skait.
The Professor, in his previous article, talked
about the efficiency of 60,000 British soldiers.
What would the professor think of the efficiency
of a 12-year-old boy who sets up a machine gun
at the front door of the Professor's house and is
ready to slaughter the residents, regardless of
their number, at the slightest provocation? There
can be no better explanation of the relation be-
tween India and Britain.
There is no use beating around the bush; if he
really believes the British authorities to be just
and intent on educating the public, let the pro-
fessor have an open discussion with me in public.
Gandhi is both a problem and the solution-a
problem .for those whose grip he desires to take

Editorial Comment
PUBLICITY NOT ENOUGH
PAY FOR FOOTBALL PLAYERS
No person connected with a university does as
much work for as little-return as does the average
football player. During the football season he
practices several hours daily and during the rest
of the year he must keep himself "in trim" for the
next season. He has little time to study, and, less
time to earn a living.
A football player gets publicity which in this day
has a value to the man who intends to get into
any work in which he can cash in on his personal
fame. If he intends to sell insurance, bonds or au-
tomobiles, a name which has been broadcast to
the land by radio and newspapers has a value
which can be turned into profitable use. If he in-
tends to become a football coach, college football
is the only iecognized training school for this
profession. If he intends to go into the movies
he can start with a name which already has been
put before the public. It would cost a film com-
pany thousands of dollars if they had to pay for
this advertising. If he intends tb become a pro-
fessional football player, his college has given him
the necessary training and the publicity to boot.
The use of nationally-known heroes, the free
publicity enjoyed by college players is the only
leg which supports professional football.
But out of the thousands of men devoting
all their time, energy and thought to football in
the schools of the land, only a mere handful
from each college attain enough prominence and
publicity to repay them for this expenditure of
time and energy. The rest find that they have
only been marking time, as far as preparation for
their future is concerned.
Football at all large universities is a business
proposition. Coaches are shifted as soon as a
team has a losing streak, and everything is done
to keep the team winning and maintaining gate-
receipts. This is good business practice. The
most important cog in the money-making ma-
chine is the football player and his only return I
is "that tired, aching feeling," and; a lot of slush
about "fighting for the dear old Alma Mater."
Why not pay the deserving workers?
