Men' Governnment . .
FOR MANY YEARS Michigan 'stu-
dents have endured a two-headed
system of "government," neither branch of which
meant much to them. That both hidden mines
should have exploded in a single week was purely a
coincidence, having no further common explana-
tion than that student leaders and large numbers
of the student body have become fully aware of the
need for change.
The class election problem came to a head more
suddenly than anyone had expected or hoped for. A
solution was framed hurriedly and will probably
ultimately have to be changed to effectually cure
the evils it is aimed at.
Hasty conception can account for no faults in
the plan proposed yesterday for a new form of
council to handle men's student government. The
leaders of various campus organizations, members
of the present Undergraduate Council, and the
student-faculty relations committee of the Union
have recognized the inadequacy of the present ar-
rangement, and have been working to draft a better
plan since the beginning of the school year. What
th'ey have evolved may not appear on the surface
the be-all and end-all of campus government, but
it does make a sincere effort at improvement,
recognizing the inherent difficulties that have beset
all like efforts.A
The most unfortunate thing that could happen
to the new Men's Council is that it should be dis-
credited because misunderstood. Certain aspects
probably need greater clarification.
In the first place, the new Council is more rep-
resentative of campus men than any recent form
of organization, without at the same time risking
the dangers of politics and without introducing
an unwieldy structure. It makes liberal use of the
Union set-up because the Union is an organization
of all rpen students.
The six Union vice-presidents, however, are not
trained in the Union as an activity, but democrat-
ically elected by students in the various schools and
colleges of the University, 'from a list of candidates
put forth by the Union electoral board. In making
them a part of the future student government, the
writers of the plan are merely giving additional
duties and purpose to a group already existing to
represent campus men in their functions.
The- new Council, of course, is not designed to
include women, but to parallel the representative
goveriment which the latter have already formu-
lated in connection with the League.
The second major consideration to be made is
that the'Men's' Council, as outlined for faculty ap-

THE EDITOR of that great and noble
defender of Republican principles,
The Detroit Free Press, yesterday wrote a bit in his
daily column (gloriously or ingloriously entitled,
"Good Morning" that should prove of immense
interest to all Michigan students, and in particular
to Mr. Kipke and his proteges.
According to Mr. Malcolm Bingay (the editor
of above mentioned column), the tendency of
Michigan football teams to get beaten by 34-to-0
scores, which he claims to be now a habit, can be
attributed to but one cause, namely that Coach
Harry Kipke is spending his time writing articles
that he never writes.
To get the matter in plain English, Mr. Bingay
is of the impression that Mr. Kipke somehow
or other is lessening his abilities as a football coach
by writing articles in his spare time. Our neighbor-
ing editor further believes that the matter is even
worse because Mr. Kipke doesn't write the articles
at all, but rather has some "ghost" do it for him.
Well, from the Free Press, that sounds logical
enough. Mr. Kipke is less of a coach, because he
spends his time writing articles he doesn't write
Still, Lou Little at Columbia has been writing con-
siderable more than Kipke this fall, and the New
York school has lost only to Navy. Our own Mr.
Kipke wrote when his team won the national cham-
pionship last year, but that has nothing to do with
it. Maybe you can figure it out, we can't.
And by the way, the loss of the World Series by
the Tigers was attributed to the same cause.

Paging 'Cupid's Little Helpers'
To the Editor:
Kindly allow me space in your paper for a
brief comment regarding the date bureau recently
opened atthe University. No doubt these young
men who started this enterprise are activated by
a profound and sincere desire to help their fellow
But these young men have apparently over-
looked the fact that by arranging dates for their
male friends, they are leading them into the arms
of Satan. (Read More's Apocalypse, 22-30, and see
what happened to Adam because of his faith in a
woman.) Since then many a blushing young man
has been beguiled, seduced, and, what is still worse,
morally ruined for life because some nice girl
took advantage of his innocence.
And the co-eds are no better in this respect
than other young women; in fact they are dan-
gerous sirens and should be under strict control.
Permit me also to observe that it is better for
young men to pursue their studies than to pursue
women. Study leads to independence and' happi-
ness, while women lead to day-dreaming, forgery,
prison - and suicide. And you cannot marry a
co-ed and yet be happy. As Sir Walter Scott
said: "In courtship we dream, but in wedlock
In conclusion, I wish to remind you, my friends,
that woman is more bitter than death, and that it is
a fearful thing for man to lose his innocence.
I sign my name without fear of any woman
-whether she is a co-ed or not. Thank you!
R.F.D. 1, Box 195,
To the Editor:
Doubtless the reporter who covered the City
Council meeting Monday night felt justified in
referring to the citizen supporters and opponents
of the Federal Housing Measure as "sharply par-
tisan." There were in that "sharply partisan" audi-
ence, however, such speakers at E. W. Blakeman
and Harold P. Marley whose partisanship was only
on the side of humanitarianism. Such partisanship
is not to be confused with the connotation generally
accepted by that term politically.
If there are, either in our predominantly Repub-
lican Council or among any of our Democratic cit-
izenry, those who would use partisanship either
economically or politically, to hurt a program in-
tended for the spiritual and physical uplift of the
unfortunate but worthy poor of our city, it is to be
As Other's See Ity
A Thanksgiving Week-End
FOR A GOODLY LENGTH OF TIME it has been
the custom of the administrative body of La-
fayette to afford its students the very brief period
of one day at Thanksgiving to celebrate the time
which our forefathers set aside to offer thanks to
the Great Spirit for His many kindnesses during
the preceding year.
Certainly, 24 hours is an exceedingly small allot-
ment of time in which to journey home to see our
parents and be with them for the only period avail-
able between the commencement of the term and
the beginning of the Christmas recess. Possibly one
day might be sufficient for the student if he were
fortunate enough to reside in the near vicinity of
the college. However, such is not the case. Too
many of our students live at a distance that will
not permit such a desired trip home. A hardship
is actually imnosed upon the student hodv .nme

A student at the University of Missouri was
always sleeping in a certain class. There he
would sit, in the front row, with his eyes closed
and his mouth open, from one end of the hour
to the other. At last the professor could stand
it no longer. One day when the discussion had
been particularly intricate, he stopped in the
middle of the lecture and said:
"Class, we have been Working on the hardest
problems in this course and there sits the
man who needs it most, asleep!"
The student gently opened one eye and
whispered so that all might hear, "I wish to
goodness I were."
From the University of Wisconsin comes a story
of an odd custom that we like. Every Thursday
night the boys and girls on the Badger campus
assemble in the Union for a little party, the high
spot -of which is the cutting and distribution of a
mammoth cheese. Each week a different big shot is
selected to cut the cheese.
Collegiate courtship, says a co-ed at the
University of Pennsylvania, consists of a man
running after a co-ed until she catches him.
Again a story from one of our "liberal schools
of education." The officials of the school of applied
science at the University of Toronto threatened
to burn all copies of the school paper, The Varsity,
because its pages carried a denouncement of the
sale of beer in the campus "beverage room."
Here's an ad in the Indian Daily Student
which caught our eye:

THOSE who profess to read portents hereabouts
see something newer than the New Deal in
post-election reaction by big industry and high
finance to that Roosevelt endorsement.
If they have it right, the biggest and most en-
thusiastic quick recovery recruit yet enrolled, big
business itself, is trying to learn how to pipe that
Roosevelt election theme song, "Happy Days Are
The idea is that the election convinced the
captains, sergeants and even the corporals of in-
dustry that, like it or not, New Dealism is here
to stay for some time. It will be here with such
rousing Congressional majorities in January that
beating it or tempering its blasts in the interests
of the conservative shorn lamb via lobby opera-
tions "on the hill" does not loom as better than
a forlorn hope. What to do about it?

T'HE ANSWER said to underlie a lot of coming
and going in Washington by business spokes-
men is to speed up recovery to such a pitch before
Congress gets a chance to go haywire with new
legislative expedients that no excuse for drastic new
recovery action exists. The lobbying is to be done
back home among timid employers and investors.
"Get busy or get hurt" seems to be the post-
election business slogan.
To support this view of what big business read
into the election returns, a number of items have
cropped up. President Richard Whitney of the
New York stock exchange, for instance, finds it
possible to discover after a month of Federal regu-
lation that its securities act is not the big, bad rad-
ical wolf in pratice it seemed in prospect.
A noted business statistician invites employers to
make a recovery investment by boosting arbitrarily
their employment rolls five per cent. Big invest-
ment houses burst into a wave of display ads at-
tuned to the idea of getting aboard the recovery
THAT BUSINESS "apprehension" of pre-election
times seems to have dropped out of sight for
talking purposes. New evidences of Roosevelt mid-
dle-of-the-roadism are promptly detected in treas-
ury relaxation of capital export restrictions. The
treasury itself says it merely cut away red tape
as it did not refuse any previously required appli-
cation for permission to export anyhow.
Certainly an attempted acceleration of the re-
covery drive in co-operation with administrative
efforts seems definitely in progress. Yet it might
be explained in part by another circumstance.
