Stadia For
Scholars.. ..
stadia that sprang up in this coun-
try in the decade of the 20's is an enormous amount
of waste space. Regardless of whether these foot-
ball plants were scientifically designed or grew
up at random, there was inevitably tremendous
room under concrete stands that could not be
completely utilized even by dressing rooms and
hot dog stands.
. Many football spectators have wondered what
could be done to avoid waste space in a modern
stadium. Two solutions were forthcoming. One was
the bowl, as adopted here at Michigan. The other
is exemplified in Ohio State's Tower Club, a co-
operative dormitory for men located in the sta-
dium there.
Almost 200 men from all parts of the state were
enrolled in the dormitory as it opened this year.
Of these, 120 are freshmen, all but seven of whom
were in the upper third of their high school
classes and 20 of whom held first place in their
respective classes. The group represents 63 out of
88 counties in Ohio. Thirty-two are preparing for
engineering, 15 for teaching, 10 for law, 9 for busi-
ness, and 8 for medicine.
A similar group of 75 who lived in Tower Clubb
last year maintained an average of only slightly
less than B. Their experience convinced university
officials that the plan of providing low-priced liv-
ing accommodations for men of outstanding schol-
arship and good character is a substantial one.
It's certainly a case of dramatic irony that in
a coliseum built for athletic spectacles scholarship
should be fostered. But it's none the less bene-
ficial to the .morale of the University.

Deplores Lack Of Spirit
To the Editor:
Ever since I can remember I have planned on
coming tb Michigan. Ever, since I can remember
I've heard of the famed Michigan spirit and
linked the two together . . . Now rve come - pre-
pared for a school spirit that would be worth trav-
eling several thousand miles to see. Yet, to my
astonishment, I have found it so lacking as to be
keenly disappointing.
Where is this spirit? Is it mythical, has it dis-
appeared into thin air, or has it merely died out?
Having noticed none around the campus, I took
an optimistic frame of mind and waited for the
first.football game. No wonder the team lost!
The idea of spirit here seems to be cheering for a
winning team and booing if it is defeated. No en-
couragement seems to be sent from the stands to
the team, except at times when they need it least
-after some winning play. Even this cheering is
rather feeble, as if the students felt that they
really should cheer, but were rather ashamed. of
it. None of the "This is my college, and win or
lose, I'm for it" idea seems to have penetrated
anyone's head here.
Another noticeable feature is the poor sports-
manship displayed by the Michigan stands. Dur-
ing the Michigan State game, Michigan State sang
their "Alma Mater" with more'loyalty and pep
than I've heard anyone use in singing "The Yellow
and Blue." After the finish, in the Michigan stands,
several people had the audacity to jeer. Among
the colleges in the West, where I come from, any-
one attempting such 4 sacrilege would be removed
at once from the stadium .. .
Another objection I have is the manner in which
the yells are conducted. I will admit that the
gymnastics of the yell leaders may be amusing, but
as far as encouraging natural spontaneity, they fail
Probably part of this failure is due to the small
variety of cheers they have to work with. Thus far
I've only heard two. Certainly no stand wants to
spend an entire game using the same invariable
yells ...
Why is it that Michigan students do nothing

about this situation? I doubt if I am the only one
who feels this way. Will this lack of spirit become
a Michigan tradition, or will this famed loyalty
rise again to proclaim Michigan "the champions
of the West?"
As Others SeeIt'


Here's 4 catty story coming from the University
of Wisco sin: campus. A Theta was telling her
Kappa fri zids (?) that she didn't believe in pun-
ishing pledges for doing mean things. "Why I think
we ought 4be thankful for having pledges that do
things lik'that," she continued. Then her friend
chimed, "you all ought to be thankful for having
What price marks! The University of California
offers a five dollar refund on tuition for all stu-
dents who receive all "A's."
"Dear Bud," writes B.B.L. "I have noticed
quite a bit of news in your column concerning

'lere's' to your virtue-
So good you are.
Here's to my sins-
So bad I am.
But as good as you are
And as bad as Iam

any reaction this poem starts).

Here's a poem with a moral sent in by a

Sat in a corner

Will this suit him the brute! A student at
Illinois State Teachers College is going to sue one
of his classmates for hitting him on the back of the
head with a yo-yo. Careful boys, or the next law
suit will probably involve injuries received during
a Tiddle-Wink game.

Investment . .

the organization known as the
American Association for Economic Education is
the fund of the Investor's Syndicate, Minneapolis
investment corporation.
In a special news release to. college editors, the
association proposed recently that under their
guidance, courses in money management be made
compulsory in all high schools and colleges. Text
books are to be provided by themselves, at cost.
"Emphasis is being laid by this company on the
high percentage of financial illiteracy which still
exists, despite our well-organized educational sys-
tem, and a nation-wide campaign is under way
to secure the interest and support of parent-
teacher associations and educational authorities,"
they say.
The organization boasts of so-called "prominent"
educators who are backing the movement, men
and women, who if they are at all well-known,
ought not be proud of the fact. The association
even boasts of having on its board Edith N. Rogers,
Congresswoman from Massachusetts, who recently.
introduced a bill in Congress which would make
compulsory the teaching of money management
in every school that receives any Federal aid.
To some readers the picture presents nothing
wrong. Financial illiteracy is undoubtedly a prev-
alent and serious condition.
Pointing out that industry seeks to stretch its
long and sinuous arm into schools, newspapers,
legislatures, courts, and political parties, that. it
may influence the people in general, to impose
upon us its scales of value, its ideas of wise'
and unwise public policy, a book now being used
as a text in the economics, department here says
that "here we are undoubtedly face to face with the
kernel of the problem of industrial control -how
to protect life itself from being too completely dom-
inated by the process of getting a living."
We appreciate the interest that the Investors
Syndicate is showing in our educational system.
On the other hand, our schools, one of the
few institutions not altogether absorbed and con-'
trolled as yet by big business, ought to be pre-
served as long as possible from its leprous hand.

KIPLING'S re-enlisted British regular, into whose
mouth he put that joyous, "back to the army
again, sergeant; back to the army again," will have
nothihg on "G. A. Lynch, Army and Navy Club,"
one of these days. For that is the way Col. George
A. Lynch, United States Army, now drafted for
service as first mate of the NRA ship, appears
in the books.
When he gets his NRA release - and he hopes
and expects to get it almost any day -his heart
will sing that "back to the army" refrain even
more! joyously than did Kipling's barrackroom
Picking his successor to be executive officer of
the revamped NRA under the board that has
taken over General Johnson's one-time vast au-
.thority is quite a job. Its difficulties easily might
upset Lynch's fond expectation of soon resuming
his Army title and removing himself to an Army
post environment far from the maddening clash
of "ologies" and "isms" centering about NRA. His
military efficiency, his ability at organization de-
tail, his aloofness to all philosophical reactions in
carrying out any task entrusted to him, must make
him an ideal lieutenant to the NRA board. But
he is bent on getting back to the Army.
"I'm a soldier," Lynch says with twinkling eyes.
"I'm not used to working long hours in peace
* * * *
WHEN-- AND IF - he does escape from NRA,
Lynch will leave behind him a codification of
the regulations governing that complicated recov-
ery mechanism of which he is very proud. Quite
likely that was the specific job his former army
colleague, General Johnson, dragged him out of his
contented military life to do.
Among his Army achievements is a job of regu-
lation writing that endures to this day in the
military service. He was assigned to write or
rewrite Army field regulations. That was after
the war. War lessons, both of A.E.F. and home ex-
perience, and first hand observation of European
military systems, had to be woven into this primary
textbook of the army. Lynch did it.
"And those regulations .still stand," he observes
now with much more pride than he takes in his
unique place in the NRA scheme of things. "They
have stood for 11 years. That is an Army record.
No previous similar regulations stood longer than1
six years."
could possibly stand up any such length of
time nobody can suppose. NRA is too strange an
off-shoot of national policy to permit very definite
prediction as to where it is going. Some "New
Deal" opponents delight in saying it's just going

r[HE UNIVERSITY convocation committee, func-
tboning this year on an extremely limited
budget, must decide soon on one or two courses
in securing speakers for the 1934-35 convocation
programs. Either the committee can invest its al-
logwance in a few of the country's outstanding
lecturers, or it can bring, to the campus a greater
number of less expensive and less prominent
In former years when larger funds were available
for paying convocation speakers, the committees
in charge of the weekly programs brought to stu-
dentsand faculty members only the finest lecturers,
orators, and entertainers America had to offer.
These speakers invariably drew capacity crowds.
It was only when a little-known speaker was run
in that students shied at attendance. It was the
best or none for the majority.
The Daily Student believes it voices the opinion
of the entire' student body in urging the commnittee
to engage only the best in convocation headliners,
