Perhaps we shall have compulsory physical edu-
cation for all classes. Perhaps we shall have
rules that will make us sleep eight hours every
night. Perhaps we will have mentors to make
us brush our teeth morning, noon, and night.
Perhaps we will be forbidden to eat between
meals. Perhaps the use of tobacco will be banned.
One year of physical training at the University
is perhaps excusable, as it acquaints the student
with the gymnastic equipment of the athletic de-
partment. There is no excuse, however, for two
years of this work.

fun of it, without the (immense) thrill of ap-
pearing in a stadium packed with 60,000 specta-
tors. And what will the graduates do who for
long have thought that the only way to prove
that they are educated men, and to testify to
their loyalty to Alma Mater, was to go with all
their friends and relatives to cheer madly at the
"big game" and to spend a lot of money swelling
the "gate"? Perhaps they will apply to the Re-
construction Finance Corporation for a loan to
help pay off the mortgage on the stadium. As
for the athletic undergraduates themselves, they
may be forced to give up to study the time and
talents that were meant for providing the popu-
lace with a great spectacle. Anyhow, they will
have new motive to hope and pray for the return
of prosperity so that college athletics may be
again conducted on a fitting scale of luxury.

WITH the authorization of Chief of
Police Thomas M. O'Brien by the
state attorney-general's office to arrest out-of-
state students and instructors who are operating
their cars here under the licenses of their home
states another University-town relation becomes
complex. Once more the local policemen are
placed at the enforcing end of rules which; will
prove decidedly objectionable to all Ann Arbor
visitors, and to students in particular.
The merits of the state law are, in general, not
to be questioned. But the wisdom of compelling
its application in this unusual instance is doubt-
ful. It is gravely unjust that a student who has
his car in storage here -during the school year
(at $4 a month) and uses it only at the begin-
ning and end of vacation periods, should be
called upon to buy two licenses.
The law exempts business vehicles which are
not operated in this state for a period of more
than ten days by an owner residing in another
state. It would seem, then, that cars of under-
graduate owners receive less consideration than
commercially operated out-of-state cars.
This lack of consideration is more clearly evi-
dent when one realizes that the student will use
his auto only nine days in the year. Two days,
before and after three vacations, two days on
the J-Hop week-end, and one day at Thanks-
giving, and in most instances the car is being
used mainly for transportation home or to return
here. The number of hours spent on the streets
of Ann Arbor seems far too low to merit the
price of second license.
Furthermore, the student whose car is owned
by' an out-of-state resident will be called upon
to produce title certificates, inasmuch as the
state law does not apply to him. All of this
produces more red tape to entangle unsuspecting
Considering the basis of this legislation we
find that the "second license penalty" is inflicted
because the out-of-state owner establishes a
residence here by his nine-month sojourn. In
direct contrast to this line of reasoning, the en-
tering student from over the border is charged
extra tuition by the University because he is ar
out-of-state resident,
Nevertheless Chief O'Brien is bound by law to
have his eagle-eyed ticket-venders watch the
streets when the auto ban is temporarily lifted
The well-known game continues and the student
is still guessing the wrong shell.

Let The J-HopS tand
On Its Own Feet...
A TRADITION is a tradition just'
as long as it commands the respect
of a large number of students. When, however,
it loses this respect, it either dies out altogether,
as Class Day has, or else, sustained by statutes,
becomes a ruling imposed on the students, like
the pot wearing tradition.
To this latter category, it seems, has been
added the J-Hop. In previous years, the Hop
committees believed that since their parties were
popular they needed no artificial means of infla-
tion. Consequently, the no-party ban was never
deemed necessary. Last year ,despite frantic
lobbying by the committee members, the Student
Council- refused to pass the ruling. The members
believed that the J-Hop- should stand on its own
feet financially. And the affair was a financial
success despite the depression.
But this year, all but two members of the
Council have been argued into voting for the
ban, and, as a result, fraternities will not be
able to have parties the Friday night of the
Hop week-end. The argument that this makes
it: economical for fraternity men is easily disposed
of. House parties will be held, regardless of the,
ruling, but those attending will be practically
firced to the additional expense of buying a ticket
to the Hop, whether they want to or not, besides
paying their own house bills.
We feel that the Hop will be a financial suc-
cess without any artificial rulings. If it is not;
if it cannot stand on its own feet without being
propped up by a number of bans, then it is time
for the Hop to quit.
But why not keep it a student activity sup-
ported by those actively interested in attending,
instead of foisting more bans and rules upon
an already overburdened student body?
Compulsory Toothbrushing
For Undergraduates ...
A MOVEMENT is under way to re-
quire sophomores as well as fresh-
men to take physical education. Although the
sponsors of this program undoubtedly have the
student's welfare at heart, we believe that this
action would not have the desired end, namely
improving the physical fitness of the under-
As in the past with all paternalistic measures,
the sponsors of the two-year program are certain
that they know what is good for the student
better than the student himself does.
Perhaps they do, but any sort of compulsory
program, in nine cases out of ten, sours the stu-.
dent on the whole phase of physical education.
The fact that everyone needs a certain amount
of exercise is admitted, but it has been our ex-
perience that when this is shoved down a per-
son's throat, he naturally rebels against it and

It is the story of Chick Brian's rise, from a be-

stage on a cheap tabloid, to notoriety as a hunted
criminal who endangers his life for his ideas of
fame and fortune.

Campus Opinion
Letters published in this column should not be
construed as expressing the editorial opinion of The
Daily. Anonymous communications will be disregard-
ed. The names of communicants will, however, be re-.
garded as confidential upon request. Contributors are
asked to be brief, confining themselves to less than
300 words if possible.
To The Editor:
I am surprised to read in your columns that
Prof. F. N. Menefee objects to the city using
river water on what he terms "associated ideaE
-one's memory -of what it has been." If thi
is true, thousands of Americans in cities where
the water supply comes from much more polluted
streams than the Huron would be suffering from
water psychosis. If his objection was valid, all
those who have been through a packing house
would become strict vegetarians, and those who
have been raised on a farm would refuse to eat
Would it not be better to overcome our senti-
mental objections and for the sake of the city
health and the economy effected for the citizens,
find some way to act upon the recommendations
of the water commissioners? The special com-
mittee headed by Prof. A. H. White which made
an exhaustive study of the water problem pointed
out that the present supply is on the borderline
of danger because of its hardness.
The three-fourths of the homes in Ann Arbor
which do not have softeners in the basement
would gladly forgetI the origin of their water if
they could be saved the indignity of bathing in
borax and drinking with one tongue in the cheek.
When. Professor Menefee admits, as he did in
his published interview, that the citizens are un-
consciously paying a high tribute to the present
system, I am led to believe that he will in time
drop his sentiments and climb on board the
water wagon.

Editorial Comment
Painful news comes. from directors of college
athletics in many parts of the country. They
are being forced to cut expenses heavily. Dis-
patches published in yesterday's Times show how
widespread is this dire necessity, and what con-
sternation it is. causing among undergraduates
and alumni. Intercollegiate contests are to be
sharply reduced. The. Poughkeepsie regatta is
to be entirely abandoned for this year. Several
"major sports" are to be dropped. Competitions
between colleges that are not "self-supporting"

By Karl Seifert
Associated Press newspapers published a dis-
patch yesterday declaring that the North Dakota
state senate was in a turmoil over whether or not
a resolution introduced in that body recommend-
ing that 39 states secede from the Union should
be published in its journal. By no means-keep
it a secret.
The resolution wants the western states to
secede and leave the eastern states to form a sep-
arate country. It seems like a pretty drastic step,
but if they think it will stop Huey Long from
talking it's worth trying.
