Any course which would be of such a great

The Daily Cardinal, militant newspaper of the
University of Wisconsin, has lost its battle against
its arch-enemy, John B. Chapple, who won the
Republican nomination for United States senator
from that state. How much the Daily Cardinal
expected to accomplish by its anti-Chapple cam-
paign, is difficult for outsiders to conjecture, but
not even Chapple himself could say that the
Cardinal editors lacked courage.
During last winter and especially in the spring
months, the Cardinal consistently met the attacks
of Chapple against the University with counter-
attacks, and his accusations with proofs and facts
well-calculated to stand up under any fire. Those
who followed the Cardinal-Chapple contest had
the opportunity of seeing a rare thing-a college
newspaper entering a political fight in earnest.
The first round is over, but no doubt the paper
will continue in its efforts to defeat Chapple at
the November election.
The Daily Student makes no pretension of eval-
uating the merits of Chapple as a prospective
senator, or of the Cardinal as a political force.
The fact seems obvious, however, that the news-
paper commands admiration and respect from
those who have watched its stirring fight against
a foe of the University.

the article), which is the result of an apparent ill-
ability on the part of our modern society to ob-
jectify in any way certain justifiable value desires,
What satisfies the average college student, busi-
ness, politics, social life, we all know to be ration-
ally malodorous. Modern intellectual life, as re-
presented by the American university, is so lost in
the arrogance of tradition as to be almost unap-
proachable. Popular art is as bad as popular busi-
ness makes it. Socialism, as represented by the
present socialist party, was, through an expedi-
ency which these students could not excuse,
awfully impure. Because of their profoundly sad
Christian realization of the sinfulness of man,
they could have no faith in clamoring commun-
ism. Plainly put, these students found their values
in certain things which the capitalistic system
protects; they found their pain in the inability of
the capitalistic system to protect itself from in-
tellectual and moral suicide. So there they stood,
the true representatives of capitaism, stoned
through the streets and crucified. Then they dis-
covered the "Hound and Horn," became in their
turn arrogant in tradition, and answered the "ig-
norant editors of the 'New Republic' " by finding
literary reasons for condemning John dos Passos.
In their preoccupation with the values they found
capitalism preserving for them they lost sight of
the failures of capitalism, and so feared the vul-
gar Marxian Gargantua. They were defeatists
and capitalist purists.
That I believe is the criticism which the Marx-
ian critic could make of Mr. Gorman's struggle
towards honesty could only have been criticised
by technicians.
Into this honest disjunction comes Mr. Spelvin,
trying to be as nice as possible, but devoid of
ideas. He realizes that his campus life is a swell
clam-bake, everybody is a swell guy, he is having
a great time; numerous- campus institutions,
founded expressly for the purpose, tell him so.
He is the representative of capitalism, but because
of the failure of capitalism to impress him with
its own rigourous discipline, or because of his im-
maturity, he fails to recognize in Mr. Gorman the
outpost of his own creed and dislikes him because.
he is too lazy to understand him and because Mr.
Gorman does not attend with very great glee the
campus clam-bake. He tries to rationalize his dis-
like but he cannot. He could only validly criticise
Mr. Gorman because Mr. Gorman dares to be
honest and does not dare to be. He might say,
and such an argument has been held legitimate in
the past, "This is the way life which experience
has taught us is good; why meet issues squarely,
why be honest, when that is the way of distress.
Let us 'muddle through' as England does." Mud-
dling through, it must be remembered, has always
been costly. Its charm for the ruling class mud-
dlers has always been, I suppose, that the cost has
been payed by the lower class. The lower class,
with its new war cry, and its new goal, will not
pay much longer. Muddling through will not al-
ways be possible. Issues must finally be met hon-
estly. What was refreshing and good about Mr.
Gorman was his great honesty; what is so sad
about his detractors is that they not only are not
honest but fail to realize that there is such a
thing as honesty. Socrates, it seems, was correct.

A subject which has long been a source of tra-
vail and disgust to the maligned students of this
community, has been brought out into the open
where it lies seething. For years, the taxicab
industry in Ithaca, has been little less than a
racket. Hard-shelled, uncompromising hackmen
have placed their decrepit vehicles at the service
of the public and within a very short time, have
retired on the millions which they have raked in,
Prices for jaunts from the Hill to one of the rail-
road stations ranged anywhere from fifty cents
to a dollar; students caught down-town late at
night with no means of transit have been mulcted
out of sums larger than that.
Suddenly, a new era dawns. An enterprising
concern with a fleet of five horseless carriages
appears and offers to transport the citizenry from
from one part of Ithaca to another for the insig-
nificant, albeit peculiar, sum of sixteen cents. Im-
mediately, the more exorbitant firms find them-
selves sadly lacking business; Ithacans are not
such fools that they would spend seventy-five
cents when they could cut that down to sixteen.
Even the street-car company finds itself endan-
gered, since the new era's prices are hardly more
than those of the trolleys.

Campus Opinion

Earl Michener-
Poiitical Sycophant..
E ARL MICHENER, representative in
Congress for the second district,
which includes Ann Arbor and Washtenaw county,
has been honored by his party with renomination
for the post he holds.
Mr. Michener, after long years of service in the
House, has attained the position of assistant floor
leader of the Republican minority in that body.
This is, of course, the second highest honor which
his party could bestow upon him during his ten-
ure of office. In the event of Republican control
of the lower House, the floor leadership would
undoubtedly go to Michener.
The question facing the voters of this district
is not a partisan one. Last spring, when the
Linthicum proposal for the repeal of Prohibition
came before Congress, Michener, under pressure
from dry organizations, cast his vote against the,
measure, thus confirming previous reports that
he was under the influence of the Anti-Saloon
'The question that the voters of the second dis-
trict must decide is whether or not Michener ade-
quately represents their interests, not only in the
matter of the Linthicum amendment but in all
his actions during his incumbency. He has
achieved no small amount of notoriety through
his "fence-sitting" policies, and these, together
with his sycophantic attitude toward party bosses
and powerful lobbyists, have contributed largely
to his present position in his party.
The people of the district will not be especially
interested in Mr. Lehr, the Democratic nominee,
on election day. They will vote either for or
against Michener. They will decide whether they
want a representative in Congress who truly rep-
resents them or one who will continue, as he has
in the past, to represent the Anti-Saloon League
and other special interests. No matter what.posi-
tion a Congressman may hold in the leadership
of his party, he is still a representative of the
people who elected him. When he ignores or
forgets that fact, his tenure of office as a public
servalnt should end.

for the use of the typewriter both
in the business world and in private use, it is
remarkable how the subject of typing has slipped

University, but .he could use this knowledge to
great advantage as an undergraduate. Many de-


To The Editor:
Allen Tate, in a review recently published in the GEORGE MATHER, graduate student, was the
"New Republic,"objected to a certain author's sar- gentleman who was wearing the army pants
casm in regard to the "Southern Colonel" for the in front of the Library while trying to get new
reason that the sarcasm proceeded from smart- recruits for the co-operative rooming house. Co-
ness and not from any definite and positive doc- 'operator Mather explains that he is not a so-
trinology which could be discussed. Mr. Tate said, cialist; is trying to get cheap board; holds a com-
in other words, that if one wishes to ridicule the mission as a Reserve Officer; was wearing his

he is not a banker, or a poet, or a Marxist, and 1 * *

not simply for the non-reason that he is a
"Southern Colonel." In reviewing the years which
I have spent on this campus, I find that this
criticism of Mr. Tate's would apply just as well to
what passes for intellectual activity here.
One could enumerate numerous projects, which,
as soon as this criticism is enunciated, obviously
fall under its head. As I remember, the fashion of
of smartness was started by the "Gargoyle," which
got it in an emasculated form from certain nat-
ional publications: One recalls with distaste the
aestheticism which this mood bred; one recalls
how, in extreme cases, even examinations were
taken in a languidly humourous mood, the tinge
of the whimsy and the odor of the bon-vivant
suffusing everything. Pansy, as I recall, was a
delightful word; and in another manifestation, it
became the thing to ask Mr. Gorman (to bring
this letter to its point) how he had liked a play
because his expected seriousness was so excruti-
atingly funny. The mood spread to that abortive
publication, "The Diagonal," which advertised its
shame on its first cover by immediately denying
any connection with anything (and so immedi-
ately invalidating anything it might say). Mr.
Klein, the eminent "line-man" of the "Gargoyle,"
was its first editor. And last year the "Daily" took
up the honey tinted pursuit, and, until it retract-
ed, almost made itself martyr to the "poo-poo'
creed. This whole movement, which those who
participated in it did not in the least understand,
was utterly innocent of any semblance of an idea.
Those who drank tea and played bridge in the
"Parrot" and those who wore more serious expres-
sions and wrote editorials on "Professors who
teach", liked to think of themselves as being in a
Voltaire-Harlequin-Don Juan tradition. Even if
their supposition had been correct, Arnold's des-
cription of noblemen, and Mr. Tate's criticism
(I write in the past tense; these statements still
hold) would have applied to them, for such a tra-
dition as they imagined themselves perpetuating
was born in them of pure laziness, and is invalid
and illegitimate at the present day.
Out of such a background comes the discussion
about Mr. Gorman's work in today's Daily; this
discussion heralds the triumph of this background
and wipes away the last vestige of opposition
which was to remain safe in memory,
I do not propose to criticise Mr. Spelvin's arti-
cle; one does not evaluate the eternal hee-haw of
the donkey. Any person acquainted with the situ-
ation, could, without much trouble, expose the
tissue of falsehoods and bewilderment of which it
is made. I merely wish to point out that any criti-
cism Mr. Spelvin could make would lack point,
for if Mr. Spelvin but realized it, Mr. Gorman is

MORE RUMORS keep drifting in about John M
Nichol, freshman hot-shot. The Theta Delts
report that "Speedy" Nichol has a hand shake
that is half jiu-jitsu and half hammer lock. That
is, it results in the handshaker's being brought
to his knees. The Alpha Delta Phis report that
Speedy asked for more of the ......sandwiches.
Bully Boy Joseph Zias was seen with Nichol

COACH HARRY KIPKE has been the recipient
of many letters from people he doesn't know,
asking for tickets to the game today. One runs:
"Dear Harry, I am a poor dirt farmer without
money enough to come to the game. It you will
send me four tickets I will come to the game and
cheer for Michigan. My whole family will cheer
for Michigan too." Another one reads, "Dear
Harry, I am a Michigan alumnus without the
funds to buy a ticket to the game. It you will
send me a ticket, I'll bum a ride with a neighbor
and cheer for Michigan. I've practiced my voice
for the last full week." * *

PROF. C. H. LANGFORD, logic favorite, made

THIS STORY is third hand. I won't vouch for
the validity of the facts. Anyway, it seems
that Frederick G. Novy, of the Medical School,
is a member of the Nu Sigma Nu fraternity.
Also, it seems that the brothers of Nu Sigma
Nu take great pleasure in imitating that gentle-
man's dignified voice.
Came a time when the Nu Sigs were holding a
stag party. A member was clown in the basement
putting refreshments on the dumb-waiter to send
A voice came down the dumb-water in the d g-
nified tones of Dr. Novy: "Send up another bottle
of pop."
The brother in the basement was getting sick
of taking orders; shouted back, also in the digni-
fied tones of Dr. Novy, "If you want it, come down
here and get it, you big baboon."
Replied Nu Sig Novy, in the dignified tones of
Dr. Novy, "You're wrong that time, Jimmie. It's
the old man himself."
