FERA In
Operation...
PROJECTS RANGING from washing
windows to technical work on the
Early Modern English Dictionary characterize the
FERA on the campus this year.
Every kind of ability has been utilized, and has
been made to fit projects that were proposed by
the faculty. If the particular technique needed for
any special work could not be found the project was
discarded and a new one was substituted.
The FERA placement staff, under the direction
of Dean Bursley, Harold S. Anderson and Miss
Elizabeth Smith had no easy task in assigning 915
students to 325 projects. Professors were quite ex-
acting in their demands for students who would be
able to accomplish something, and were quick to use
the applicant who had technical ability. As a result
it became increasingly difficult to make satisfac-
tory assignments of jobs. That assignments were
completed and that everyone on the approved list is
Aow at work speaks well for the diligence of the
staff.
Taking a scattered few of the projects from the
complete list, any interesting array of services to
the University makes itself evident. Work on the
Early Modern English Dictionary is being supple-
mented by the addition of 20 FERA workers to its
clerical staff. Nichols Arboretum is being surveyed
by a contingent of six students. A life guard has

been assigned to the Union pool. Mr. Edward
Blakeman, now has two aids in counseling students
in religious activities.
There are still 700 students who have not re-
ceived jobs. It is to be sincerely hoped that the
FERA committee will carry on its investigations
with the end in view that as many students as pos-
sible out of the 700 on the waiting list will be placed.
Court Action
On Drill...
THE BARBED QUESTION of com-
pulsory military drill in colleges
and universities is again receiving nationwide at-
tention as a result of a test case pending in the
United States Supreme Court.
Brought by two University of California students,
its result hinges upon the court's interpretation of
an act passed in 1862 coincerning military training
in colleges established by Federal land grants. Two
justices, in oral debate, have taken a point of view

doing. Administrations which have fallen back on
the old land grant act will, if the Court decides
against them, have to think up some new argu-
ments or let compulsory drill go by the boards.
Unimportant as the issue is here, it is still a very
sore point with many of the major schools of the
Middle West. The solution may be simpler when the
Supreme Court has cleared up some of the hazy
legal aspects of the case.
Who's Huey's
Now?. ..
T RINGS HAVE HAPPENED in Louis-
iana lately that no one ever expect-
ed to see in these United States. The most fan-
tastic of them all came last Tuesday when Sen.
Huey P. Long, the well-known "Kingfish," freely
handed out thousands of dollars in cash to Louis-
iana State students and townspeople of Baton
Rouge.
Each of those who received the $7 necessary to
go by special train to the L.S.U.-Vanderbilt game
at Nashville, Tenn., today signed an ILO.U. Osten-
sibly the money was given in the form of a loan.
As a matter of fact, many of those who filed past
his suite door in a Baton Rouge hotel were not even
students, and probably no considerable number has
any intention of paying or ability to pay back the
money.
Even Senator Long isn't giving money away
for nothing these days. Some of the thousands
who received money and the millions who read
about the incident will realize what saps the
American public can be. A lot will see the King-
fish only as "a swell guy" or a sincere benefactor.
They had a different name for it in the old days,
but it's true that nobody ever did it quite like
Huey.
As Others See It
Breaking The Chainsf
T HAS LONG been the just pride of this news-
paper that it is free from any form of censor-
ship, but it is with a determination to rectify the
situation that we confess that on the matter of
student elections The Daily Cardinal is as effec-
tively muzzled as the most-subservient member of
the collegiate press.
Instead of retaining the just right of jurisdic-
tion over what goes into our columns, we are
compelled to suppress news of vital importance,
close columns of student opinion, and insure
"equal publicity" without reference to the actual
news values contained in the meetings or state-
ments of the various political candidates. This is a
situation entirely foreign to the function of a news-
paper.
In the first place, it is essential that the respon-
sible officials of a student newspaper have the right
to express themselves editorially in a free and
forceful manner; without this right the vitality of
the collegiate press is sapped and its opinions be-
come insincere and weak. If, for example, we want-
ed to comment on the election tactics of the va-
rious political candidates, have we not a right
to do so and thus call attention to certain abuses
and evils? Not only have we the right, but it is a
solemn duty which we must discharge if we are
to justify our existence as a public servant. So
much for the right to editorialize on campus elec-
tions and the personalities involved.
THE DAILY CARDINAL is a newspaper and not a
bulletin board given over to the publication of
grist mill publicity of any candidate or political
machine. As a newspaper we claim the right to
print that which is news and to reject that which
is obviously mere political propaganda. Any well-
conducted newspaper insists on this right; it is a
basic one in the development of a free and intelli-
gent press. News, political, athletic, or cultural,
must be judged by news standards and not by a
desire to "even things up." If one man says some-
thing of definite interest and the other has noth-
ing to offer but a standard line of bilge, we insist
that we have the right to print the first and reject
the latter. And this without reference to the de-
mands of equal publicity. ii a candidate sees him-

self falling behind in total publicity, let him issue
statements with a news value - then he will re-
ceive fair publicity.
With the sincere conviction that it is taking a
stand which is fully in accord with the best ethics
of professional journalism, The Daily Cardinal
hereby serves notice on the elections board, all
political candidates, and the university that it will
fulfill its duty as a fair and fearless newspaper
by commenting editorially on any and all phases
of campus politics that it sees fit.
We refuse to silence or turn our columns over to
any interests or political groups.
-The Wisconsin Daily Cardinal.
Tutorial System Extended
DUE TO ITS RECEPTION on campus last year
the north campus tutorial system has been ex-
tended this year. Students will now be able to re-
ceive outside aid in 12 subjects.
The merits of this system are perfectly obvious.
Not only does it offer help to students who are
falling behind in their work, but it also supple-
ments the classroom work, enabling students to
.go much farther into the subject than is ordinarily
possible. All work is done in an informal, round-
table style which adds pleasure and friendliness
to the work.
That the tutors themselves are the best fitted
for the job is demonstrated by the fact that they
must be graduate students and carry the recom-
mendation of the department which they are aid-
ing. The system also stimulates student enthusiasm
in education outside the classroom, and promotes
closer relationship between faculty and students as
well as between fraternity and dormitory men.

COLLEGIATE I
OBSERVER
By BUD BERNARD
The editors of the Daily Orange, publication of
Syracuse University received the following adver-
tisement, and from the looks of it things are worse
than bad in Syracuse: "Help wanted - two co-eds,
minus the characteristic halitosis, pink toothbrush,
and athlete's foot, desire advice as to their con-
sistent unpopularity with the opposite sex. Their
friends and roommates sweep appallingly by with
myriads of beaux and swains, while these two cute
thin'gs are left to gaze wistfully after their tri-
umphant figures.
Help! S.O.S.! Replies to be published in the Daily
Orange."
Here's a crack coming from a Delta Gam at
the University of Illinois: "Many a co-ed is
blamed for making a" fool of a man, when he
is really self-made."
The students of Marshall College have recently
issued a manual telling professors how to be cour-
teous. Among the suggestions were:
"It is discourteous for the professor not to learn
students' names. Students dislike being called 'you
in the green dress,' 'you on the back row,' or having
to decide if she is one of the six in her vicinity at
whom the professor seems to be nodding."

A professor at the University of Maryland re-
cently awakened a student in his class and chas-
tised the culprit thus: "So you know all about
history that there is to know and you think I ought
to let you sleep. Is that it? Well, suppose you just
get up before the class and tell us what you know
about the bourbons."
The sleepy student,, still in a daze, said, "Well
they cost more than rot-gut."

Off The Record
By SIGRID ARNE
ATTENDANTS at the White House solemnly at-
test the story about Henry, the White House
squirrel.
At times Henry decides the feeding is better
across Pennsylvania Avenue in Lafayette Square.
But the stream of auto traffic lies between him
and his goal.
Henry understands that. He waits on the cur
until the red traffic light cuts off the flow of
autos, and then crosses the wide and famous ave-
nue, frisking his tail as he goes.
The Basil Gordons of the capital's social set
are wondering if they can match the wits of
their three-year-old when he grows older.
Recently he had his first taste of horse-back
riding. He was frightened but would give ano
sign of it. Finally he shouted:
"Daddy, I better get down. This is bad for
the pony."
AMERICAN FRIENDS of Dr. Hans Luther, am-
bassador from Germany, were treated to a
old German custom when Luther gave a "poltera-
bend" for his daughter, Gertraud, who soon is to
marry.
Supper was served on broken china which had
been saved for the occasion. Afterwards the guests
were asked to break their dishes against a door,
making a good wish for the young couple.
The custom is a traditional part of German pre-
nuptial affairs.
CCC headquarters here have ample evi-
dence that men are still men in the wide open

They have just placed an order for 10 pairs

Special fittention should be taken

especially when it involves the delicate process of glazing the fur. This
is not only true because women on the average are more particular about
their dress than men, but that a sparklingly cleaned coat, pressed with
just the right flair, makes one feel new and fresh even on a dreary eight
o'clock walk down the diagonal.
