THIS IT NOT EXACTLY the most
Tapproprate time of year to enter
into a discussion of mosquitoes, but a few facts
concerning the family Culicidae having been called
to the attention of the press, we pass them on
for your consideration.
"A mosquito is an insect and hatches from an
egg." That, somehow, seems vaguely familiar; we
may have heard it somewhere before. "Since water
is the only breeding place known for mosquitoes,
a mosquito must swim before it can fly." And
that seems logical enough.
Other information presented in the report is
not designed to leave one in a very cheerful frame
of mind. We are told that there are more than 500
species of mosquito in the world; that cold, ice,
and snow have no effect on the eggs; that the
eggs may hatch out four or five years after they
have been laid; that salt marsh mosquitoes fly
from 10 to 30 miles from where they breed.
You'd/certainly think it was a mosquito's world.
There seems to be one ray of hope: the female
mosquito is the only one that attacks man. But
the next news may be that there are no male
mosquitoes. We wouldn't be surprised.
Campus Opinion

To the Editor:
The editorial entitled "Snobbery and Sororities"
which appeared Wednesday in The Michigan Daily
asserted that sorority women liked to be called
snobs. "It goes to their egos as gin goes to their
heads," the editorial stated.
. And like gin, the word "snob" gives us a head-
ache. Campus leaders - and we should be judged
by our leaders as well as by our misfits - are
sorority women. Certainly Maxine Maynard, pres-
ident of the League, Billie Blum, women's editor of
The Daily, and Ruth Rdot, president of the Wom-
en's Athletic Association, have as sympathetic
and cosmopolitan an outlook as any woman on
campus.
The editorial goes on to say that "In their own
social world they (sorority women) circulate as
fiercely as amoebae in a wash basin of stagnant
water, but they never see or think about the world
beyond that wash basin." A pretty accusation. But
does it apply to us anymore than to the non-
affiliated woman?
We think not. Anyone who has lived in a dormi-
tory realizes that these organizations emulate if
not surpass the sororities in the matter of cliques.
It is as difficult to break into the established dor-
mitory group as it is to be accepted by a sorority.
The idea that we are the ones to "snob" the
non-affiliated women is erroneous. The tea spon-
sored by the League last spring proposed to further
association between independents and sorority
members. The records show that the majority of
Greek houses were represented, but only three
non-affiliated women attended.
Contrary to popular opinion, the independent
has equal chance with the sorority member
to be elected to office. Non-affiliated women and
Greek-letter women combine their talents in class
projects. The petty snobberies between these
groups do not exist. -
We are not "high hat." We are happy to broaden
our acquaintances. It is the non-affiliated woman
and not the sorority member who persists in keep-
ing a halo around the Greek letter girl.
-A Sorority Member.
NOTE: Gott Im Himmel! The editorial said, in
just so many- English words, "This is not -snob-
bery." The objection was that campus women were
self-centered and isolated from contacts with out-
side ideas and people, and that they concentrated
their lives upon a never, never land of colle-
giate superficialities. That the sororities claim, as
this letter does; that they are more successful in
the matter, is not a laudation but a condemna-
tion. The editorial contended that the sorority girl

was unable to understand the possibility of life
outside of her own life-which is college life.
This letter proves the truth of the contention'
completely and unequivocally.-The Editors.

Today's column will be a hodge-podge of facts
picked up from the various campuses throughout
the country.
The McGill Daily, student publication of McGill
University, gives us some added information on
the workings of its date bureau. The dateless
co-ed calls the bureau and specifies the sort of
date she wants, such as blonde, blue-eyed engi-
neer (purely theoretical this) six feet Mall, and
about 21 years old.
The dateless man calls the bureau for a willowy
brunette who doesn't talk too much. The bureau
refers to photographs and statistics which it has
on file and find out just what the two want.
It then calls the boy and gives him the name
and telephone number of the suitable girl.
If the bureau finds it impossible to produce
the kind of date the boy wants, it calls him and
suggests another date.
Some specifications are of this sort: want
a good looking girl who likes to dance and is
willing to pay her own way and to share all
incidental expenses to go to the informal.
After several weeks trial, officials believe that
the bureau has shown itself successful, without a
doubt.
A professor of neuropsychiatry at the University
of Wisconsin, has been conducting extensive re-
search in the effects of "truth serum" on human
beings. The work, still in pioneer stages is con-
cerned with probing for a means of determining
true testimony in criminal investigation and seems
to be fairly successful. The serum produces a
semi-conscious state in which the patient makes
direct answers without first considering what the
replies will be.
A student at Ohio State University has a
novel way of working his way through school.
He does it by accepting wagers from his fra-
ternity brothers. They think of all the crazy
things they've wanted to do but never had the
nerve, then get a pool and bet him that he
won't do it.
And there is nothing he won't do. Pajamas
to restaurants at dinner time, tights to class-
just most anything.
A freshman at Washington and Lee, with the
super-brightness common to yearlings, has evolved
a plan by which he can supply the entire student
body with Great Dane dogs, at a nominal price.
It is his idea that each member of the freshman
class chip in a dime and buy a pair of puppies. In
the course of time, Great Danes, being that way,
each man will have his personal bodyguard, bed-
mate, and bathmate.
"Whether you know it or not," says the W. and
L. genius, "there are many advantages to this kind
of dog. For one swish of his tail you may have
a shower whenever and wherever you are. In fact
you may get a shower when you don't want it."

E DUCATION,. like every other move-
ment has its evangelists and its or-
ganizers. Both have their function.
The one group vaunts. itself, clamours loudly
against existing faults, paints brilliantly the mil-
lenium soon to come. The other group comes after,
patiently cleans up the mess, quietly accomplishes
the few reforms that are .practical and possible.
Without the second group, the first would be
just so much sound and fury. Without the first;
the second would find its way but poorly prepared.
For two .workmen whose every success depends
on the interaction of their philosophies,.the idealist
and the practical man make very poor bedfellows.
Neither is any too proud of the other nor does he
consider him very essential to the total scheme of
things.
ny single day will bring to light two move-
,-each banging away independently of each
other, each attacking a similar problem in a
fundamentally different way, both together win-
ning something for the future good of mankind.
Speaking of education in particular, we find a
professor of philosophy at the City College of New
York bursting forth with "a burning denunciation
of educational institutions in the United States and
a nation-wide campaign for revision of the pres-
ent-day educational system."
This educator, a Dr. Ralph B. Winn, finds the.
system "irrational and absolescent." He wants a
curriculum "that prepares us for life, that gives
us a better understanding of self, society, and the.
world." He believes that "the time has come for
action." Specifically, he suggests that the admin-
istration, the faculty, and -the students of schools
should meet in friendly discussion to work out a
program.
That's all very nice and no one will quarrel
with Dr. Winn's fine ideals. Someone somewhere
may be stirred anew to the action for which he
cries. But boiled down fine, it tells us very little
that we haven't always believed.
Dr. Winn stops at precisely the point where the
trouble has always begun. Just how administration,
faculty, and students are to get together is what
we've always wanted to know. That they should do
so literally in one big congregation, is inconceiv-
able. If he means figuratively, through the bun-
gling sort of contacts that have always existed,
we are no better off than before.

As Others See It

By KIRKE SIMPSON
THE HABIT of American politics to rely on per-
sonalities so largely in battling over policies
has had its own troubles in this campaign.
It has been easy for "regular" Democrats. All
they have had to do is shout "Roosevelt!" The
President is the "New Deal" for them. The fact
of his personal popularity right along has had
a lot to do with dragooning otherwise highly con-
servative-minded Democrats in Congress into
bandwagon support of administration innova-
tions.
Only "off-the-reservation" men, whether they
are off to the right or to the left, have been
bothered by the necessity of drawing a distinction
between the President and the "New Deal," of
being for the man but against some of his
works. It has been tough going for them.
0 N THE REPUBLICAN side of the argument
the situation has been far more perplexing.
Every non-regular Republican,. whether a "Roose-
velt Republican" in '32 or not, was forced to find
some solution of his own to the campaigning prob-
lem. Those solutions ranged from Sen. Hiram
Johnson's sweep of all California nominations for
re-election with White House blessing to Sen.
"Young Bob" LaFollette's resort to a third party
bridge to find a route back to the family seat in
Congress.
For regular Republicans with further evidence of
Roosevelt popularity detected in the Congres-
sional primaries, the task of finding personalities
to rage against "New Deal" policies without direct-
ly assailing the chief New Dealer himself, has
been hard right along. A few, such as Dickinson
of Iowa and Schall of Minnesota or Robinson in
Indiana have defied lightning by direct presi-
dential assaults.
The vast majority of others, however, have
preferred hitting over the shoulders of the Moleys,
Tugwells, Richbergs et al. of Roosevelt brain-
trust connections. Or, conversely, they wept over
alleged conservative sacrifices to leftist policy like
the Johnsons, the Spragues, the Blacks, and the
former director of the budget, Lew Douglas.
CURIOUSLY ENOUGH, Dr. Moley, once hailed
as arch villain of "left-wing influence" at the
White House, was discovered. in public and bitter
opposition to any party rapprochement with the
Upton Sinclair kind of Democracy out in Cali-

"A MICHIGAN TRADITION"
THE DEPENDABLE STORES

Loyal In Defeat,

FEW QUESTIONS are more frequently asked
in athletic circles than why the University of
Michigan has until this year always presented a
football team of outstanding ability, and many
of the answers have been rather uncomplimentary
to the University and the management of ath-
letics at that school.
The probability is that the results have been
due there, just as at other institutions where good
teams have been produced, to the accident of good
material, ample equipment, good management, and
excellent coaching.
But there was an incident at the railway station
at Ann Arbor last Saturday when the team came
back from Chicago whence it had suffered the
worst defeat Michigan had experienced on the
gridiron in years, that is the best index of what
makes good football teams at Michigan.
Several thousand students, accompanied by the
university band were at the station when the
band drew in and they cheered the team and
