the rules, that co-eds favor them on the ground
that they allow time for studying that could not
otherwise be had. The argument is quite il-
logical: either a co-ed wants to stay out on a
date and rules are irksome, or she prefers to
study and needs no rules. It is impossible to see
any reason that would make co-eds trip the light
fantastic when they would rather be in their
rooms with their books.
Miss Lloyd has said, with inflexibility in her
tone that is hard to understand, that any change
in rules is out of the question for this year. It is
a cinch that they will NEVER be changed unless
co-eds give strong voice to what they want. To-
day there is afforded a chance to speak.

NIGHT EDITOR: JOHN C HEALEY
Let's Go To
The Pep Meeting!. . .
H ARRY KIPKE is going to bring his
boys over to Hill Auditorium to-
night. Are we going over to meet them?
It's the first time in many years that a football
team has appeared before a pep meeting crowd
on the eve of an important game, and it can mean
only one thing -Kip realizes, and the team real-
izes, that they need student support to win to-
morrow.
It's a great team. We all know it. The trouble
is we know it too well. We are becoming like the
sport writer who said, "Michigan strolled through
to another victory over Iowa last Saturday."
Football teams don't stroll to 10-6 victories in
mid-season games. Not when they are playing in
the Western Conference, toughest league in the
country.
Tonight is the time to show them we're for
them. Tonight's the night to yell like h-, to let
them know we appreciate the hard work they've
been doing, and to tell them we'll be there tomor-
row to help clinch the national championship.
Student Voting
Today ..
t TUDENTS who wish to express
themselves ,about University con-
ditions will have the chance today. The Under-
graduate Council has arranged a ballot including
most of the much discussed thorns and roses
which go to make up the University environment.

Today's vote will be significant in direct pro-
portion to its size. Four thousand votes will mean
at least twice as much as two thousand votes. So
stop at the first polling station you come to, pull
out your pencil, and check your opinions.
The Daily has already discussed the issues of
State Street beer and residence rules. Here is the
way we look at the other questions:

Auto Ban

T ODAY the students of this campus
are going to vote on -continuation
of the auto ban, in its present or modified form.
The vote will not, of course, repeal the auto ban
in any case. It would be just as incorrect, on the
other hand, to fancy that the vote, if adverse to
the present ban, would be irrelevent and unpro-
ductive of concrete results. If the auto ban should
be defeated at the polls today it would demon-
strate that the ban, brought to Michigan largely
in the interests of democracy (that is, to make
the poor student feel the equal of the rich) is
quite undemocratic. Certainly a democracy that
is arbitrary is a wax-winged specimen.
The Daily supports the auto ban as it stands
now - a monument, as it were, to student democ-
racy. But if the straw vote shows that student
sentiment has flung itself against the ban, -our
stand must, in the same interest of democracy,
turn against the ban.
The protagonists of the "academic privilege"
system ask that students of superior academic
standing be allowed to drive automobiles. They
argue that this would promote selectivity and yet
would abolish the old distinction based on the
size of the check the student received from home.
This argument, on examination, is seen to be
sophistry. It sets up again the old standard of
rich-class privilege - for obviously an A student
must have money, too, to drive a car.
In the event that a wish for a change in the
auto ban is not expressed by students today, we
ask one favor of the Administration: that the
present rules, almost laughably severe in certain
cases, be relaxed. We refer to the intemprate
rule (to cite one instance) laid down for driving
to and from, the Chicago game. According to Mr.
Rea it was necessary in all cases to obtain written
permission from him, and this permission was
granted only when an older member of the stu-
dent's family was to be in the car. It made no dif-
ference if a student went home first, getting his
or her family's car there. To do that, without
written permission, was wrong and was punish-
able. It is impossible to see how the University
can consider that it has any proper right to dic-
tate a student's behavior when he is within the
sphere of parental influence. Of course it is only
too apparent that this particular ban was un-
enforceable. Flexibility, rather than a high-hand-
ed method of this stamp, is desirable.
Honor System
HE DAILY last year conducted an
intensive survey of the faculty's
position on a possible honor system at the Uni-
versity of Michigan. That survey showed: the
majority of the older and more experienced fac-
ulty members are unalterably opposed to the sug-
gestion; the younger men are undecided but are
"willing to take a chance" with the system; the
professors in courses dependent upon essay writ-
ing in examinations, such as English, are more
inclined to favor the idea than professors in
courses not dependent upon essay writing in ex-
aminations, such as mathematics; the number of
men in important positions who oppose the plan
is so large that, regardless of student opinion, the
system will not be accepted at Michigan.
We don't think it should be accepted here.
There is no insult to students in proctoring at ex-
aminations, and the honest students know it.
The proctor at an examination is in the same
position as a policeman walking his beat. The
policeman is there to protect the honest citizen
from the advantages the dishonest person may
feel inclined to take. That is the function which
the proctor at an examination has. The dishonest
student is in a minority at this University Just as
the dishonest citizen is in a minority in this city,
but some dishonest students do exist. Because of
them, the honor system should not be introduced.
R.O.T.C.

campus, but in those.circles throughout the coun-
try which always watch a vote of this type with
interest.
"I will support my country in any war." What
is "my country"? First, this country is a demo-
cratic country. The president, who has the power
to declare war, is elected by the people. The Sen-
ate and the House, which pass upon the presi-
dent's declaration, are elected by the people. They
are directly responsible to the people. What they
do and how they do it is decided by the people.
In short, they are the people. When they declare
war it is a war desired, through representation,
by the majority of the people in this country. It
is the people's war.
Assuming, then, - as we have a right to as-
sume - that the democratic process of election
will continue, future wars of this country will be
the people's wars. The person who will not fight
in such a case is a traitor to the American sys-
tem of government, to that system under which
he lives and under which he is decently protected
in a complex world. On the basis of faith in the
American system of government and that sys-
tem's manner of doing things, as well as the his-
torical record of this nation, the -average student,
possessed of both a respectable amount of patriotic
pride and common sense, can hardly choose any
but the last statement: "I will support my coun-
try in any war."
Compulsory Physical Education
T HE DAILY urges that students,
both men and women, register an
emphatic "no" on the question "Should there be
compulsory physical education for men (for
women) ?"
Arguments in support of a "No" vote on this
well-known campus dead-cat are almost too trite
to bear repetition. For support of our contention,
though, we cite the following bulwarks for a "No"
vote:
1. Freshmen will sign up for literally anything
to escape the dead-cat of freshman gym.'R.O.T.C.,
golf, tennis, wrestling, athlete's foot excuses, X-
rays - all are used as a dodge.
2. Climbing ropes for 20 minutes or jogging
about a track five times are diversions that are
neither very health giving or at all conducive to
love of athletics.
3. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors very seldom
come back for more after their "training" as a
freshman has "instilled in them the workout
idea."
4. Freshman physical education is not a matter
for the University to regulate.
If the freshman wants exercise and athletics he
will get them. If he doesn't he will evade them as
surely as the sun rises in the east.
So why compulsory freshman gym?
Movie Prices
O N THE SUBJECT of movie prices
there is unfortunately little to be
said. Rather we express the hope that the student,
in expressing his views on this question at the
polls today, will think carefully before deciding
that 10 cents is enough to charge for a movie.
Movies here are now 30 cents; and 40 cents for
main floor seats in afternoon and evening. It is
possible - it is not certain - that these prices are
too high. Jerry Hoag, manager of the Michigan
Theatre, a man whose comment on movie admis-
sion prices we respect, has said that 40 cents for
an evening show is little more than a subsistence
price in these times.
It would appear that a reduction of more than
10 cents in movie prices is altogether unfeasible.
So be lenient.

T HE DANCE price problem is very
much similar to that of the movies,
with the distinction that the profit motive is elim-
inated from the dance.
From $1 to $10 you will get what you pay for.
At $10 it may be Isham Jones, at $1 Johnnie's
Eight Rowdies. The dance admission price should
be governed largely by the existing economic con-
dition and by the importance of the dance and
the memory it will carry in later years. Offhand,
it seems unlikely that any dance is now worth $10
or even $8. At times they have been worth that
much, and they may be again.

AGITATION against R. O. T. C.
units in colleges is a popular sport
among the more liberal campus organizations. It
is an agitation which gives these liberal groups
something to do, sometimes arouses the trouble
and publicity to which such organizations are ad-
dicted, and provides a good outlet for youthful ex-
hibitionism.
The colleges where R. O. T. C. work is com-
pulsory there may be a good argument against
this enforced militarism. But that doesn't apply
to Michigan. The R. 0. T. C. here is voluntary,
not compulsory.hIt is a University course just as
English, Political Science, and Mathematics are
University courses. It is a student activity just as
the Socialist Club, the Vanguard Club, and the
National Student League are student activities..
If the student wants to join, he can; if he doesn't
want to, he doesn't have to. It's entirely a ques-
tion of the students own personal likes and dis-
likes.
Why, then, abolish the unit? If the students
who want to join the R. O. T. C. are not to be al-
lowed to, then it may be argued that students
who want to band together and discuss social
problems should not be allowed to do that. The
cases are the same; and prohibition would be
wrong in both of them.

AT THE MICHIAN
"CHARLIE CHAN'S GREATEST CASE"
When one comes to a detective story there isn't
much one can say about photography, acting, and
the like; they are subordinate to the plot andthe
working out of the crime. The working here is
done by the proverb-making Charlie Chan, and
outside of his subtle remarks and the plot there
isn't much to the picture that would make it out-
standing.
Earl Derr Biggers' story doesn't show a great
deal of perfection as shown on the screen (Movies
never are as good as the original plays or stories
anyway). "Charlie Chan's Greatest Case" smacks
of the type of thing one would read in "The
Shadow" or "Colliers"; it doesn't require a great
deal of intellect to figure out.
Of course some poor soul is murdered so Charlie
Chan masterfully steps in and solves the mystery
with the aid of Corsican cigarette butts, sea-weed,
a young dapper Bostonian, a valuable pin, and a
proverb here and a proverb there.
The best thing about the program is the short
subject selection. (why don't they have the same
type of selection when there is a good show go-
ing on?) Besides the news, in which we see South-

All we need for their execution is a good crowd.
The team is going to be at the GIANT PEP MEETING on
FRIDAY NIGHT in HILL AUDITORIUM to receive your
expression of confidence and support in the game Saturday.
Any team works better when it knows that it has support. Michi-
gan is in fine shape, but it will need that extra bit of ability and

Women's Hours

T HE SUBJECT of women's hours
is closely related to that of resi-
dence regulation. The Daily is opposed to any
regulation by the University in the personal mat-
ter of where a student shall live, and is similarly
averse to women's hours.
As in the case of residence, we do not believe
that the majority of parents favor the rules;
and we think those parents who do want them
should pay for them. The argument holds even
if parents who are opposed to university regula-
tion are a minority: it is preposterous that par-

stamina to defeat Minnesota.

Do your part in defeating Minne-

sota by cheering the team and attending his Pep Meeting.
