F IFTEEN years have elapsed since
the world rejoiced at the an-
nouncement of the end of the colossal destruction
of the World War. In the meantime, sentiment in
this country has swung from the severe condem-
nation of Germany which was naturally current
during the War to a feeling of positive friendliness
and back again to at least an intense perplexity
at the change which Adolf Hitler has effected in
this stolid people.
The ease with which such waves of feeling in-
fluence this country is almost sickening when we
consider that it is just such waves which envelop
a people and cause them to rush into a conflict
which they could easily and honorably avoid.
Armistice Day might well be spent in an attempt
at a return to sanity in our international judg-

5eeond Semester
~reshman Residence ...
t HE action of the Interfraternity
Council petitioning the Senate
ommittee on Student Affairs to allow fresmen to
love into fraternity houses after the begnning
f the second semester is highly laudable._
The resolution which the council is seeking
rould be similar to that passed by the Senate
.ommittee last year giving permission to move
2to fraternity houses to all freshmen who have
cquired the 11hours and 14 honor points neces-
ry for initiation, and who have obtained the
rritten consent of their parents.
While it is true that there is not the pressing
eed which existed last year in this matter - a
nancial emergency which would force many
ouses to close if the Senate Committee had not
elaxed its standing rule --there are several
highly important considerations bearing upon the
In the first place, the scholarship of pledges,
re think, would be improved, not lowered, if they
oved into the house. At no other time during
heir University experience will they be subject
o the jurisdiction of so many men who are vitally
aterested in having them do good work, for to
eep a man from. his studies would be to prevent
im from participating in outside activities. It
s inconceivable that any fraternity man would
turt his own house to such an extent.
Another consideration is, of course, the financial
,id which the houses would receive from having
reshmen move in. While the total number of

acancies in fraternity houses appears to be less'
han it was last year, an examination of the tabu-
ation will reveal the fact that large numbers of
he smaller fraternities have room for many men,
s some cases as many as they had room for last
ear. Although the larger houses are in better
hape than they were last year .and do not actu-
W1y need the help at this time, the smaller houses
vould be able to make good use of the money
vhich they would receive in room-rent.
Another point in favor of the plan, although it
nay be a more subtle consideration, is the general'
zelp in orientation which the fraternity can give
tfreshman. It is generally conceded that the fra-
ernity is a good force in getting the freshman
nto the swing of university activities, and this
alan would increase greatly the effectivenesstof
;uch an orientation.

Monetary Poicy...
M ANY OF those who know and those
who profess to know what mone-
tary policy is all about have come to disagree
more or less violently with the President's policy
as it has unfolded during the last eight months.
A subject that is already deeply involved is made
even more confusing by the fact that there are al-
most as many different solutions offered as there
are objectors to the present plan.
The President has frankly declared on several
occasions that many of his policies are frankly ex-
perimental, and he-is to be commended for taking
positive action to bring the country out of its
economic depression, even though some of his acts
may prove costly blunders.
If the President is to be criticized on any score,
it would seem to be because he has not pressed the
attack consistently and emphatically enough on
any one phase of the general problem. Such a
failure in emphasis has resulted largely because
of the manner in which the program has been de-
veloped - influenced at every turn by current na-
tional happenings and problems which demanded
the most immediate attention. It may also be due
in part to a hesitancy on the part of President
Roosevelt in committing himself to any too drastic
policy in the face of the present complex situa-
Whatever the cause of the hit-and-miss policy
undertaken to date, there has been a definite ten-
dency for individual acts to nullify each other, or
else prove so moderate as to be ineffective.
Both major steps in the President's monetary
policy have been ineffective because they have
done nothing directly to put purchasing power
into the hands of spenders who will offer it for
goods and in turn stimulate production. Merely
piling up gold reserves in central banks, either by
calling it in from hoarders or by buying it abroad,
does not automatically result in credit expansion,
as experience of the past few months has amply
proved. As a matter of fact, gold reserves in cen-
tral banks do no more than form a basis for pos-
sible credit expansion in a country which, para-
doxically enough, is not on the gold standard.
Another reason has been advanced for suppos-
ing that buying gold in foreign markets has been
suggested. This is that bidding up the price for
gold abroad, or offering more of our dollars in ex-
change for pounds or francs with which to buy
that gold, would not only depreciate our currency
in terms of foreign moneys, but would also raise
our price level correspondingly. Again an auto-
matic response is pre-supposed, which does not
work out in practice. Cheapening our currency
would encourage foreigners to buy goods in this
country, an obvious disadvantage to those foreign
countries, against which they would certainly re-
taliate. And, as Professor Watkins of the eco-
nomics department pointed out in a radio talk re-
cently, it is difficult to see how a policy of foreign
gold buying made moderate enough so as not to
antagonize any foreign nation will be effective in
restoring the pre-depression price level.
At the same time, general uncertainty and fear
as to the outcome of the President's monetary
manipulations continues to discourage commercial
banks from lending and expanding credit and to
retard long-term investment in the heavy indus-
tries, both so necessary to orderly and permanent

T HE once famous White House wine cellar will
continue to gather dust.
Mrs. Roosevelt is quite certain that a few shelves
will hold all the liquors necessary for state din-
But ever since the days of the first Roosevelt
in the mansion - "T. R." - there has been a mint
bed which the gardeners have tended zealously.
When President Hoover first noticed it he asked
what it was for.
"That's for iced tea," the gardener solemnly as-
sured him.

a certain ring contains jade or just a green stone.
COL. ED. HALSEY, secretary of the senate, and
Jim Preston, senate librarian, are constantly
at work resurrecting old historical documents and
preserving them for future generations.
Recently they found an old paper that had writ-
ing on both sides. They wrinkled their brows.
Which side should be placed outward in the

bawling. "Hey! Can't you read that no parking'
sign? Get your car out of here."
Without a word Mrs. Roosevelt drove three
blocks away to a vacant parking space. She walk-

"Did I park far enough away?" He merely
grunted in reply. A few minutes later he had the
shock of the season when a fellow guard told him
he had barked at the President's wife.

and toot 'em out yourself."

hat and frock coat of civil War vintage.

The Theatre


Professor John L. Brumm's new play, "Why
Print That," was received enthusiastically last
night by a large audience at the Lydia Mendel-
An interesting comedy of newspaper life, "Why
Print That?" nevertheless insinuates certain thin-
ly disguised barbs on the subjects of editorial cow-
ardice and civic corruption. Randolph Coe, a
young reporter on the "Gazette," knows that old
Arron Hathaway, the former owner, has died
under seemingly normal circumstances, but when
Dr. Emanuel Cortez, a distinguished dentist, ap-
pears with a $500 bill for work just done on the
dead editor's teeth, Coe smells a rat.
Prof. Martin Fenway and his wife have inher-
ited the "Gazette" from the dead man, and the
professor determines to take over the newspaper
and run it in the cause of civic betterment. The
professor, being a layman, thinks that "headlines"
are called "titles," but his decision to print only
the truth soon brings to bay three of the city's
most dangerous characters.
Meanwhile, Coe has had an examination of the
dead editor's stomach made, and finds that Dr.
Cortez had filled the old man's teeth with strych-
nine. Cortez shoots himself, and is revealed as
the "brains" of an enormous dope ring.
Honors for the performance go by a nose, and
some other nice features, too, to Miss Virginia
Chapman, who plays a chatty secretary with great
verve and intelligence. Capable work was also
done by Lester Griffith, Robert Hogg, Lawrence
Levy, and Play Production's directors, the Messrs.
Windt and Doll.
Mr. Brumm's play, we believe, was ideally suited
for the amusement of Michigan's visiting news-

At Washburn College, several prominent
co-eds were interviewed about their ideal
man. Most of them said he must be reason-
ably tall, nice looking, well mannered, and
a good dancer. Several specified that he
must be dark, have a good sense of humor,
a good disposition, be neither conceited nor
spoiled, and be emotional and devoted. (A
