Physical Education For
Women And 365 Days
S IX THOUSAND years ago, we;
understand, an Egyptian carved
upon an obelisk in hieroglyphics a quotationi
Which, when translated, reads as follows:E
"The world is coming to an end. Children no
longer obey their parents. The world is coming to.
In 1933, children are still failing to obey their'
parents; parents are still listening for Gabriel's
trumpet to sound a blanket summons; and the
earth still continus to travel its regular course
around the sun in 365 1-4 days.
Since the beginning of mass education, a strife
similar to that which exists between the parent
and the self-willed child has existed between thel
university administration and its student. Thet
administration, in loco parentis, has made rules1
to govern the student on the assumption that it
knows-better than the student-what is good forf
its undergraduate. The student, in loco pueri, de-
sires to learn by experience, to live his own life.f
Probably it -is wrong to let the student, even
though he be fairly mature, live his own life ex-v
actly as he desires. Undoubtedly he would take
some wrong paths that might have been avoided
with the proper supervision.£
However, it is equally wrong to supervise his
life and conduct altogether, because, if this is
done, the student does not learn to make decisionst
for himself and his character does not develop
while he is being "educated."
Because the two sides of the problem are con-
tinually fighting for supremacy, successful uni-
versities have always compromised between the
two etremes-complete paternalism and com-I
plete laissez faire of student conduct.
By means of this method, a middle ground has'
usually been obtained which is reasonably satis-
factory to both the administration and the stu-
With this in mind, let us look at the two year
compulsory physical education program to which
all women students are subjected at the Univer-
sity of Michigan.
It is apparent, because of a recently conducted
survey by The Daily, that this program is objec-j
tionable to a large majority of undergraduate
women. If the program is also objectionable to the
administration, we would -suggest that the "body
building" procedure be entirely eliminated. If,
however, as we have reason to believe, the admin-
istration feels that the procedure is beneficial,
then we suggest arbitration.
In this case, the obvious solution would seem
to be to limit the compulsory program to one year
and after that have physical education optional.
The earth will still travel around the sun in
365 1-4 days.

speech. In the House of Representatives speeches
may be limited by the chair, but in the upper
body tradition and rule allow a speaker to hold
the floor indefinitely if he wishes.
We need hardly point out the un-Americanism
of the practice. Under the present system, the
vote of Congress supposedly represents the will
of the people. If the system is to be consistent,
a bill up for consideration by Congress-whether
it is a good bill or a bad bill is aside from the
point-should be decided on by a majority with
as much expedition as possible.
If Congress believes itself to mirror the will of
the people, it is obviously the duty of Congress
not to impose limitations on its own efficiency.
Yet the Senate allows one man or a minority
bloc to petrify all its proceedings-even in the
time of a national crisis.
Free speech is a noble conception of democratic
policy too often disregarded these days. But the
Senate would not be violating its spirit by curbing
the filibustering privilege. Senators and repre-
sentatives are permitted to publish their speeches
ad nauseam. They should also be allowed to speak
as long as they will-but preferably on the Cap-
itol steps or at some wild spot down by the Po-
We believe the Senate should adopt the House
restrictions on speakers. Orators should never be
allowed to interrupt the work of people who really
want to work.
That would be the best course to follow. Speak-
ers never really need days to tell all they know.
A Socialist ought to be able to say it all in under
an hour, a Bimetalist in half an hour, a Single
Taxer in twenty-five minutes, a Methodist lobbyer
in ten seconds flat, and Mr. Long of Louisiana-
well, from what we hear of him, we believe he
might as well sit down as soon as he stands up.
aen found "The Truth About Kappa Beta Phi"
snd "The Truth About Theta Nu Epsilon," two
'lurby paragraphs which boil down the informa-
ion concerning these two organizations which
ippears in that old standby Baird's Manual.
These paragraphs are smoothly hypocritical, en-I
tirely failing to mention the true nature of the
orders. The only clue dropped for the casualE
reader is the stein which appears in the upper

The man who sits in the "national headquar-

He encloses a price list of T. N. E. and Kappa
Beta membership cards, shingles, keys, oflicial
pins, even sister pins. Furthermore, any college
group may receive a complete charter and ritual
of either order for $10 and C. Q. D. charges. The
self-appointed national secretary seems very ex-

R. O. T. C. DISCUSSION
ro The Editor:
The following should interest those students
who seck the abolition or continuance of the cam-
;us R. O. T. C. unit, or those who are trying to
decide where they stand on the question.
Illuminating statements were recently made by
General Smedley Butler in a debate with Norman
Thomas before the New History Society. The facts
the general gives should expose much of the
'wish-washy" sentimentalism surrounding pre-
"I first became interested in the army during
the Spanish-American war," began General But-
ler. "It wasn't such a good war but it was the
best the capitalists could get at that time. I
thought that the war was a noble thing. I was
young and we are foolish when we are young.
"The Spanish-American War was got up by a
ew capitalists who were much the same as those
who get up all our wars. Also, Bill Hearst wanted
co get us messed up with the rest of the world,
and he did."
The general is of the opinion that wars are
made by capitalists to protect capitalistic inter-
ests, rather than ,to dfend the women and children
and make the world safe for democracy.
"Suppose now that two nations are at war," ex-
plains the general. "The capitalist sends out sup-
plies. His ship is sunk and he loses money. He
eushes down to the President of the United States
and tells him that he's losing money. He does not
get paid until he delivers the goods, and he tells
the President that he wants him to deliver the
goods. So the President and the capitalist put a
flag on a ship. This ship is sunk and everybody
gets excited, especially the women.
"Then they put a couple of guns that mean
nothing on some ship. This ship is sunk too and
now more people get excited. Then some other
fool goes rubber-necking in the war zone and gets
hurt. Now we all go to war.
"Remember this! All these wars are arranged
for! Then the pink-cheeked boys are drafted. Not
capital. If we drafted capital we would have no
war. But everybody is drafted unless he has
enough money to be exempt. Laws, you know, are
made for those who can't pull out of them.
"We teach the boys to kill and take glory in it.
[ know because I did it. We promise them the sun,
the moon, the earth and the stars, and then send
them off to kill."-
Says General Butler, relative to his treatment of
the Haitians: "I did not want to enslave the
peasants down there and raise sugar for the Na-
tional City Bank, so I was canned.
"Those who favor capitalist exploitation of
labor, both at home and abroad, should work to
strengthen the R. O. T. C., the regular army, the
navy, the air corps. The worker, who supplies the
man power for these military groups, must be kept
in ignorance of their true functions and must be
continually taught the myth that he is protect-
ing his people against aggressor nations. Hence
the importance of the capitalist press.
"Those who stand with the workers in the class
struggle must pursue a different course. The
working class is international. Its members have
lost all property that the government claims must
be protected. Its children are starved by the very
bankers who tell us that we should join the army
to protect our homes. Its women are forced to
walk the streets by the same class which warns
that the "invading hordes would ravish our
women." Those in favor of the working class must
withdraw all support from imperialistic war, as
was urged by delegates to World Anti-War Con-
gress at Amsterdam.

AT THE BONSTELLE CIVIC
Blanche Yurka, one of the truly important ac-
tresses of the American theatre, will be the guest
star at the Bonstelle Civic Theatre for two weeks,
appearing as the tDuchess of Florence in "The
Firebrand," opening Monday, January 23, and as
Portia in 'The Merchant fo Venice;" from Mon-
day, January 30 through February 5.
As the Duchess in Edwin Justus Mayer's adap-
tation to twentieth century farce treatment of
episodes from the sixteenth century autobiog-
raphy of Benvenuto Cellini, immortal Florentine
goldsmith and sculptor, Miss Yurka will display
quite a different aspect of her genius than was
called for in the heroic, but impersonal Narrator
in "Lucrece," in which she was seen in Detroit
this season with Katharine Cornell.
Among her other achievements were "The
Squall," her unforgettable performance last sea-
son in Sophocles' "Electra," produced in Newt
York, Ann Arbor and on tour by Robert Hender-
son, and her gallery of Ibsen portraits, including
Gina in "The Wild Duck," "Hedda Gabler," "The
Lady From the Sea," and "The Vikings."
In "The Firebrand," the boisterous spirit of Cel-
lini and his times is preserved, although the char-
acters often break into modern idiom. The slang
phraseology and other anachronisms help build a
buoyant, genuinely entertaining comedy. The epi-
sodes selected here from the hectic career of the
Italian Don Juan are his escape from hanging
for killing a man in a street brawl, and his rescue
from the Ducal palace of his model Angela, a
maid more beautiful than witty.
Robert Henderson will have one of his favorite
roles as the brilliant braggart Cellini, Miss Eden
Gray will play Angela, as she did in the original
production starring Joseph Schildkraut, and to
Ainsworth Arnold's capable hands falls the richly
amusing part of the Duke..
A dance recital by Miss Martha Graham, whom
many authorities denote as America's foremost
dancer, will be presented at the Bonstelle Civic
Theatre by Robert Henderson before the close o1
the current season in March. Miss Graham is now
starring with the distinguished German exponent
of the dance, Harald Kreutzberg, at the new Ra-
dio City Music Hall in New York.

Governor Comstock, in asking that party hand-
shakers refrain from visiting him in Lansing, said,
"There is only one of me and there are only 18
hours a day in which I can work." The other six
hours he has to put in at his desk in the capitol.
"Don't come in to see me unless you have some-
thing important to talk about," says the governor,
but he'll probably relent in time and consent to
tell the boys about this expense account thing.
