an and will work ourselves out of it."
There is without doubt a need that some of
he more constructive of the social. legislation in-
luded in the New Deal should be retained. It is
purely a matter, however, of separating the grain
from the chaff, and not of keeping it all for the
good that is in it.
No matter what course the Federal Administra-
tion takes, they will find that it takes time and
action, and not words to get out of a depression.

Science Publicity
Gets A Break .. .
N EWSPAPER REPORTING of scien-
tific and other technical matters
has not always been entirely above reproach. The
untrained reporter has frequently made serious
mistakes in fact. The reporter writing for a lay
audience with fourteen-year-old intelligence has
felt compelled to jazz up his accounts in a way
that scarcely appeals to the man of science.
The man of science, accordingly, feeling the
lack of understanding on the part of the press,
has often decided that publicity did him much
more harm than good. He refused entirely or par-
tially to talk to reporters, saving his genius for
technical publications that did him justice.
So some experts in technical fields decided to
keep their reputations and their self-respect and
let the newspapers struggle along without their
enlightenment.
The newspapers, however, in their own bungling
way had been doing their best to serve two
masters and have constantly been striving to im-
prove that service from the point of view of both
sides. The job is no easy one, and it has been
greatly misunderstood.
The scientist whose work is supported by public
funds owes something of an accounting to his con-
stituency. Further than that, the broad diffusion
of ideas is inportaht to their rapid multiplication.
But in this day of increasing specialization, few
persons are equipped to appreciate any field but
their own unless it is translated into generally
understood terms.
The newspapers and certain general periodicals
are the only institutions set up' to serve as inter-
preters between the technical gentry and the un-
happy public. Newspaper men are not always
too well trained for their difficult job, for it takes
an exceptional man to be.able to undestond both
points of view - that of his source and that of his
readers.
In the meantime, while men. are being better
fitted for such work, the newspapers still remain
in a strategic position that cannot be denied. Men
of science must realize that the press has not wil-
fully harmed them, that its point of view must
necessarily be different from their own, and* that
co-operation will' certainly avail them more in the'
end than hostility.

A class in French at the University of Mary-
land was orally translating a story about a
cow from French into English. One of the
co-eds persisted in calling the cow "he" until
the professor stopped her short and said:
"He is she, miss. We milk her in the next
sentence."

Following the issuance of a faculty ultimatum
prohibiting men from visiting women's dormi-
tories for "dates" except on week-ends and Wed-
nesdays, the men at Yankton College, a small
school in South Dakota, went on a "date" strike.
They have established pickets outside the dormi-
tory and threaten to use the paddle on any one
who even looks like a strike breaker.

Co-eds, says a senior at the University of

Two hundred students at Monticello A. & M.
College have signed a petition asking the removal
of their president because he has termed dancing
as "nothing lesslthan a 'sex orgy' and that all
dancers 'wil go to hell.'" He has been president
at that institution for 24 years.
"If all the co-eds on this campus who didn't

Daily sophomore leaning over my shoulder,
''what would we do with her?''
Henceforth you needn't fear term papers, thesis
or special speeches. The Columbian Information
Bureau, Washington, D. C., offers collegians papers

pose, guaranteed to pass the purchaser.

BYSTANDER

D;SPITE The number of prohibitionist nominees
appeaing in scattered fashion on Congres-
sional ballots, the liquor question for the first time
in years is having small visible effect on the make-
up of the new House. Certainly not a half-hun-
dred nominees are to be classified that way. There
is some confusion, however, due to. dual nomina-
tions.
It might be argued that this situation indicated
repeal of constitutional\prohibition had removed
the liquiQr proble, temporarily at any rate, from
-poliiaturml-. ThawLk be. a 1 ad guess by 'ill

accounts. It is very mchstill-here for the admin-
istration. The turning of the first anniversary of
repeal in early December is going to- make that
plain'to everyone.
Editors aremaking ready for that anniversary.
Their trained scouts are boring from every angle
into national, state, and municipal statistics on the
first year of the return of John Barleycorn. There
are indications that men on both sides of the fight
for repeal who were the most prominent figures
in the contest are making similar studies.
HE RESULTS probably will be heard with loud
and repeated bangs just after election, on or,
about Dec. 1. And, that there will be a decided
flare-up then over administration post-repeal pol-
idy in handling the question, is a foregone conclu-
sion.
There has been no hint yet as to what recom-
mendations regarding liquor taxes the treasury and
White House are preparing to submit to Congress.
In some quarters there is a feeling that President
Roosevelt is certain to find it expedient to include
the subject in his earliest communications to the
new Congress. It has a budgetary aspect, quite out-
side its sociological or economic significances, cer-
tain to be very much in the mind of the President
and his advisers just now.
THERE are whispers that this question may prove
to be a special interest to some of the new
organizations nominally set up to defend the Con-
stitution against real or implied "New Deal" trends.
The original group behind the American Liberty
League has repeal advocacy backgrounds which are
of interest in that regard. With such names as Al

W ITH THE APPROACHING general
election now little more than two
weeks away, we find ourselves still in a whirl of un-'
certainty as to the whole status of the New Deal,
and in particular, its belated bramchild. the NRA.
When a thoroughly helpless ,Congress passed
unheard of powers into the President's hands, we
were given to understand that the measures were
warranted only by the impending crisis, and were
to be strictly temporary. We- have just witnessed
a shakeup in the ranks of the NRA, which de-
posed General Johnson from his colorful office
a4nmade former counsel Donald Richberg the new
chief.,
From the pen of the new recovery head, writing;
in the current issue of Fortune, we find the fol-
lowing; "It is not. less lay but more and better
law that is needed to establish an adequate in-
dustrial law and order and to promiote our .eco-
nomic welfare." To be more specific, Mr. Rich-
berg says, "The new Congress will face the definite
hecessity of writing legislation to'extend the opera-
tion of various emergency measures and particu-
larly the National:Industrial Recovery Act."
There can be little doubt from these statements
ythat, in Mr. Richberg's mind at least, the necessity
of controlling legislation has extended beyond the
limits of the critical period. To him, the need is far
more than saving the country from a financial
panic. He sees a definite need for a continuous
effort to control industry and prevent the un-
scrupulous dealings that have gone on in the
past. -
It would indeed be unfortunate if the administra-
tion as a whole were to take this viewpoint, and
as yet, we have had no indication as to just what
the status of the question will be. We have had.
periods of business uncertainty and financial crisis
in the past, and the country has always returned
to prosperity. We have passed the turning point in
this depression. Even the most pessimistic observer
would grant that we are definitely on the way up.
In the critical days of February and March 193x,
there was a need for a strong, dictatorial power to
step in and stem the impending disaster. That
much, the constructive legislation of the Roose-
veltian New Deal could do. That was all that it
was intended that it should do.
But now, when as important a personage as Mr.
Richberg claims that this regulation of industry

You Tell 'Em George!
To th'e Editor:
yOUR EDITORIAL titled "Design for Stag-
na.tion," along with the editorial reprinted
from the Columbla Spectator on' the subject of
fraternities, is, in my opinion, unfair to frater-
nities here in that it fails to point out certain
good features of the fraternity system as it worlks
on this campus. .The truth of the statemenhts
detrimental to the' ystem are not admitted, 'ior
do I intend to discussfhem.
When a freshman comes to Ann Arbor, in many
cases he- has come out of an enviionment which
allowed 'him very little freedom in'the matter of
when he studies arid: what he did with his spare
time - preparatory schools and' p ental supervi-
sion having planned his life for him to a consider-
able extent. When he gets to the University, one of
the most constructive influences to the good in
his college career is the fraternity that he pledges.
In a great many fraternities, -pradti l all of
them, the study habits of the freshmen are closely
supervised, in some by means of compulsory study
tables just as strict as those of the best prepara-
tory schools, and in others by the mere insistence
that the freshmen stay in their rooms in the eve-
ning. The fraternity starts' ir where the prepai'a-
tory school leaves off in this respect.
The inference that fraternities encourage the
freshmen to forsake their studies in order that
they may drink, gamble, and indulge in other pas-
times must have been made by one who is ignor-
ant of the habits of a majority of houses, where,
studies, especially for the freshmen, are considered
of the highest importance.
In saying that the rushing chairman meets the
freshman at the station, the inferelce is that from
then on he does nothing that is seriously founded
on a desire to get ahead in his work or in any other
worthwhile activity. As a matter of fact, while the
practice of meeting freshmen at the station is-
dying out with the advent of the new rushing rules,
the freshmen who are so met will, I am sure, ex-
press themselves that the assistance of an upper-
classman in the important work of finding a suit-
able rooming-house is most' valuale.
The whole tone of the editorial is so removed
from anything like an examination of the facts of
the case, that I was surprised' to find it in The
Daily. No attempt is made to understand the prob-
lem of the man who comes to Ann Arbor where
there is no provision for housing except rooming-
houses and fraternity houses, no provision for
boarding except eating clubs, restaurants, and
fraternity houses, and where the social relation-
ships are carried to a more intimate degree in a fra-
ternity house than anywhere else.
