A Restatement Of Facts
In the conduct of student affairs, as in the conduct of all
affairs, the parentage of ideas for improving the world is of very
nearly as great an importance as the ideas themselves. That is the
universally accepted fact. The course of a proposal, as the manner
in which it is presented, is always questioned, is always a matter
open for discussion, and is always an excellent indication of the
seriousness with which the proposal should be treated.
The Daily contends that a plan conceived by a committee of
which one-half the members are faculty men is not even the imita-
tion of a student uprising for better government.
The Daily contends that when the members of this committee
make every effort to keep their elan from the established and
authoritative forms of student opinion, that fact ought to b
known, and it ought to be considered when the plan is discussed.
The Daily contends that the people affected by the vote of
any legislative body, regardless of whether they are students or
not, have a right to know how the legislators voted. A man who
castsan honest vote in a council is willing to go into the public
market place and defend that vote.
The Daily has persistently asked that the men students be
granted some small opportunity to express themselves concerning
their own government. That has at last been done, but it was done
only over the very fierce opposition of a group which was inter-
ested in the plugging of its own particular plan, to the exclusion of
all other plans. If it had not been for The Daily's opposition, that
plan would have been accepted, neatly and completely, and the
governed would never have had a chance to express their opin-
ions on how they should be governed.
We say these things today just as we said them Tuesday,
because they are true, and no amount of indignation can deny
them. The plain facts support the plain statements.

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 19. -
UP) - Flames burst tonight from the
county courthouse after two members
of a mob had died in a hail of ma-
chine gun bullets after trying to storm
the building.
The object of the crowd's wrath
was a negro charged with assaulting
a 14-year-old white girl. He was spir-
ited out of the building, disguised as
a national guardsman, and taken to
Nashville.
As flames shot from the structure,
the mob milled through Shelbyville
streets, manhandling any negro they
chanced to meet. Governor McAlister
sent 500 more troops into the town
tonight.

KALAMAZOO, Dec. 19. - Mich-
igan's Varsity basketball team eked
out a 26 to 25 victory over Western
State Teachers here tonight for its
fourth consecutive win of the season.
The victory, first the Wolverines
have scored over the Kalamazoo quin-
tet since 1931, was typical of Mich-
igan's team this season in that they
had to come from behind in the last
few minutes to win.
Coach Franklin Cappon's five led
throughout most of the first half,
enjoying a two-point margin, 13 to
11, as the period ended. However,
loss of John Gee early in the second
half on four personal fouls weakened
the Wolverine defense and the Teach-
ers jumped into the lead and were
never headed until the closing min-
utes when a Michigan player con-
nected for the winning basket.
Arnold, Kalamazoo center, scored
six of his team's nine flield goals and
added three free throws for a total

A plan to organize a survey of cam-
pus opinion upon the question of
I men's student government and to se-
cure the submission of further pro-
posed forms of government was ap-
proved in a meeting of the Under-
graduate Council held yesterday in
the Union.
The action of the Council was the
first step in carrying out the instruc-
tions of the Senate Committee on
Student Affairs, which on Monday re-
ferred the proposed plan of the Stu-
dent-Faculty Committee of the Union
with some other plans to the Council
with recommendations as to the ac-
tion which should be taken upon
them.
Three Steps To Be Taken
The plan as passed by the Council
consists of three definite steps: first,
general dissemination of knowledge
concerning the present student gov-
ernment and the proposed pla~hs; sec-
ond, letters soliciting new plans and
cpinions and criticisms of present and
proposed plans to be sent fraternities,
organizations, schools and colleges,
and other campus groups; third, a
plan to seek the same information
from independent men through the
S.C.A. and through coupons to be
printed in The Daily.
The Council was instructed to "give
consideration and study to this plan
(the proposed Men's Council) and to
any others which may be presented to
it, and through open hearings and
other methods to obtain a widespread
expression of student opinion and
wishes concerning these particular
plans and also concerning the whole
matter of student self-government."
A tentative schedule for the carry-
ing out of the Council's plan was also
organized in the meeting. According
to its terms, all proposed plans for a
men's student government will be
printed successively in The Daily
starting immediately after the Christ-
mas holidays.
Council To Submit "Best" Plan
When a sufficient number of stu-
dent opinions, plans and suggestions
have been received, a survey of the
findings will be made. From this, ac-

Consider Improvements
Of Social Conditions
A challenge for engineers to con-
cern themselves more with human
values than scientific values was is-
sued by Prof. John L. Brumm of the
journalism department last night at
a banquet of the American Society of
Mechanical Engineers held in the
Union.
"We are too scientific," Professor
Brumm stated, "and we do not con-
sider ourselves individually respon-
sible for social conditions which call
for our active support. We know
what to do toward improving these
conditions, but we haven't the cour-
age to go ahead and do it."
John Grennan, instructor in
foundry practice, received the loving
cup for the "greatest nuisance on the
engineering faculty." The honor was
accorded the candidate who received
the most vociferous and prolonged
boos. The inscription on the cup is
"to the man who can take it," and
signifies the popularity of the win-
ner in the estimation of his students.
