known to every family in America; that is, to every
intelligent family, interested in the cultural advan-
tages of higher education.
It isn't Colridge College any longer. It's Colridge
University. And they have hundreds of courses,
from advanced typewriting to back stage scene
shifting. The purchasing power of its student body
is the apple of Colridgeville's merchants' pecuniary
eyes. And at the top sits Mr. Roy Billingswell,
happy, radiant, successful.
He gave me an interview the other day. This
is what he said:
"When I came here there was nothing much
around here. So I said to myself, I said, Roy, let's
get things done around here. So you see what
happened. Stadium seats 85,000. Known from the
rock-bound coast of Maine to Calfornia's sunny
shore. Two all-Americans this year. A $25,000,000
endowment, 6,000 students, 500 courses. Great gym.
All the old buildings torn down and new ones
put up. A swell alumni association. And I'm. plan-
ning great things. Hell, we at Colridge haven't
started yet. Watch out, Harvard!
Colridge College is no isolated case. There are
plenty of similar institutions, and they respect no
geographic boundaries. They are a definite part of
the American educational system. It is one of our
contributions to world culture.
And nothing can be done about it.
Of Student Aid..
B ELATEDLY REALIZING the dras-
tic emergency need for government
aid in educational fields, the national administra-
tion began last semester to set aside large sums
from FERA funds to make educational facilities
available to many young persons and adults who
could not have afforded them otherwise. Univer-
sities and college students, logically, were major
beneficiaries under the plan.
This year the Federal government has decided it
can find means to push an even greater educational
program. Students who could not get by in any
other way will be given a chance to compile rec-
ords, sort library cards, and classify guppies much
as they did during the one semester that the proj-
ect was tried. The University can so provide help
for 950 as against 750 last year.
Needless to say, the University itself profits
equally with the students. Where the State long
since ceased to provide sufficient funds to assure
guppies of classification, Uncle Sam has stepped in
to see that research is not only continued but made
more available and useful.
On the basis of a semester's experience the Uni-
versity should be able to make certain this year
both that the projects carried out are only those
most urgently needed and that students accepted
are only those who could not get along without the
In Time .. .
HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT in the fall
political campaigns, just beginning
to get under way following the state primary elec-
tion, is the word from Republican headquarters in
Detroit that Frank A. Fitzgerald, the G. O. P.
gubernatorial candidate, and Harry S. Toy, po-
litical whip of Wayne County, have mended their
differences, and that peace once more reigns within
Since the Democratic landslide that swept Mich-
igan from the ranks of the G.O.P two years ago,
leaders of the Roosevelt-Comstock faction have
attempted to put off as long as possible the inevi-
table return of Michigan to the Republican column.
Democratic hopes reached a new high when Re-
publican party differences as to the choice of the
attorney-general nominee led to a riot in the
Wayne County convention last week.
Harry S. Toy, former Wayne County prosecutor,
aspired to the attorney-generalship, and the Toy
backers held out considerable power in the Detroit
area. Fitzgerald in the beginning was opposed
to Toy, but fortunately for the Republican party
he changed his mind before it was too late.
Running against Fitzgerald at the polls in No-
vember will be the Democratic nominee for the
governorship, former Judge Arthur Lacy, who
carries much influence in Wayne County circles.
Most of Fitzgerald's backing, on the other hand,
lies in the out-State areas, and it is highly neces-
sary that some such man as Toy be on the ticket
to insure a respectable showing in the thickly pop-
ulated Detroit district.
Both Fitzgerald and Toy are popular and well-
liked officials as was shown in the last election,*
when they were the only two Republican officials
to retain office in the State and county offices.
These two men make an ideal combination, and
it is well that the G.O.P. realized the mistake of
differing too much before it was too late.
As Others See It
Let's Make It A Custom
The class of 1938 officially was inducted into
Indiana University Tuesday morning in a ceremony
that well might be established permanently in
the calendar of Indiana University procedure.
Simple and brief as was the ceremony, its very
impressiveness from the opening note of the
chimes at 7:30 to the final singing of the Indiana
Loyalty song by the entire assembly should go far
toward claiming the immediate allegiance of the
new students and strengthening that of the old.
Catherine Feltus, '35, portraying thS "Spirit of
Indiana," welcomed the students to the campus,
and set forth in a few simple words the spirit of
the ideals of the institution. President William
Lowe Bryan spoke briefly of Indiana as the mother
school which has sent her loyal sons and daughters
to the four corners of the earth.
President Bryan climaxed the occasion with
the reading of the Oath of Allegiance which was

The average expenditure of each fraternity

University of Illinois the average expenditure of
each fraternity for the rushing season is between
$250 and $300, while fraternities at the University
of Missouri spend less than $200.

Advice To Rushees
1. Open the door and give each rusher a re-
sounding slap between the shoulder blades as
he enters. After the introductions say blandly,
"Frat boys, eh?"
2. Tell them your dad was a brother, your
uncle was a brother, your brother was a brother
and there isn't a better house on the campus.
That will leave them without an argument and
they will grin weakly and leave.
3. Borrow five bucks from the best-dressed
4. Take a proffered cigarette and stuff the
pack in your pocket. Light the cigarette and
blow out the match. Drop your match and
ashes an the rug. Hang your cigarette on the
5. Tell them your dad is an auditor and he
found out their fraternity hasn't paid its in-
terest for ten years and the holding company
would foreclose in February. This should add a
good finishing touch when you leave.

How To Build
A College ..
C OLRIDGE COLLEGE was a small,
denominational institution situated
at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in
New York state. For the first 50 years of its modest
existence Colridge yearly graduated 200 or so
nice young men, who, armed with the Latin and
Greek which was Colridge's forte, returned to their
rural farms and small towns to preach, teach, enter
law, write poetry, or join medicine shows. The
name of Colridge was famed only in a small section
of Mohawk Valley, and not even the scholarly
patient, hopeful president, the Rev. Dr. Phillip
Perkins, A.B., L.L.B., Ph.D. (all Colridge) dreamed
of the day when the college would be renowned
throughout the land. Dr. Perkins thought that Yale
was Yale'and Colridge was Colridge, and that, like
the proverbial twain, never would they meet. That
proves what a fool Dr. Perkins was.
They got a new president in Colridge in 1920.
He was a leading citizen of Colridgeville. He had
begun as an apprentice in a blacksmith's shop
and worked himself up until he owned a chain of
garages and gas stations in the valley. Mr. Roy
Billingswell (that was his name) as his first offi-
cial act appointed "Stiff-neck" McGowin to coach
Colridge's football team. No university president in
America ever made a wiser move.
McGowin could teach football. More important,
he could get good football players to enter Colridge,
particularly when he was backed by a scholarship
fund ,created by Calridgeville's merchants. The
merchants were wise. They knew that a good
football team would mean bigger crowds, an in-
creased enrollment, more business for Colridge-
McGowin had the administration abolish its
Latin and Greek requirement. Then he traveled
from one high school in New York state to an-
other, giving inspirational talks (he was a splen-
did talker, especially after two shots of whiskey)
to the boys and girls. Afterwards, he would get the
star players into a corner and make them his
offer. Upon hearing McGowin many a potential
gridiron brilliant forgot Cornell, Syracuse, Co-

PROJECTS which one moment seem of great im-
portance have a curious way of disappearing
over night in "New Deal" Washington. That is par-
ticularly true of political strategy projects hatched
around national committee tables. Things change
so quickly the political strategists are hard put
to keep step.
Just a bit ago, after Congress convened, the
air was full of planning for September legislative
conferences with "the boss" at the White House in
preparation presumably for a winter session pro-
gram. Everyone of importance in the Democratic
leadership "on the hill," both senators and repre-
sentatives, was going to sit in.
What actually was in mind was a pre-election
get-together with President Roosevelt. It would
crystallize more or less into a prospectus for the
new Congress opening in January, but its real pur-
pose was to provide the "New Dealers" with cam-
paign material. They could talk about what was
going to be done rather than what had been done.
It would have the advantage the offensive always
has over the defensive, in warfare, above all in
Ask about those September party leadership
ralies now, and you get blank stares. What confer-
ences? Who said there would be such things?

MAYBE it's just the Maine elections that account
for it. Under the personal guidance, some
say, of the canny Col. Louis McHenry Howe, pres-
ident-maker and presidential secretary, Demo-
cratic strategy in Maine was based on the idea
that the less national campaigning done there, the
better. Republican orators were poured into the
state. The Democrats let local volunteers do the
job. It worked.
It worked so well that just before President
Roosevelt's return to Washington from Hyde Park
it looked as if the Howe strategy in Maine would be
applied on a national scale. The previous idea of
getting out the "new deal" social reform blueprint
and dusting it off for campaign use had just about
dropped out of sight..
The administration disposition seemed to tend

regularly. They live miles away, but
