bc made to obtain in every possible manner a repre-
sentative cross-section of feeling on the subject.
That survey is now under way. Three distinct
forms of men's student government have been pro-
pctied so far. They will be printed, with many
others that are submitted, on successive days in
The Daily. Printed questionnaires will be mailed
to all fraternities and campus organizations and
will be made available to independents by the
end of the week. It is the hope of the Council
that sufficient replies will be returned to it to
form the basis for a definite resolution to be re-
turned to the Committee on Student Affairs.
The achievement of a definite, satisfactory and
effective form of men's government is now up to
the students. Some of them have long clamored
for freedom from University paternalism and
B.M.O.C. dictztorship. At the same time they have
hoped for a student governhent which would be
more than a mere figurehead.
Perhaps men of the student body are no longer
interested in any sort of student government. If
ghat is the case, it may as well be known. Perhaps
the men can at last achieve a really worthwhile
government. If they can it will be only by serious
consideration of the problem now. Given this ade-
quate opportunity for democratic reform, the
men need no longer grumble if their government
is not what they might hope for it.

Returning students also found that many local
citizens were conspiring with Nature to make their
homecoming a fitting one. On no few sidewalks
could be recognized the same snow and ice that
had been there sixteen days before - the whole
transformed into more of a shambles by the furious
efforts of a weather man who had been unrelent-
ing during the two-week period.
In most cities it becomes necessary to threaten
the good citizens by proposing to do some such
hideous thing as shovelling their walks for them
and charging them up with the cost. These and
similar measures usually suffice to keep the side-
walks in quite respectable conditions for pedes-
Ann Arbor may or may not have a law. A look
at the walks makes the latter assumption seem
more plausible. But whether or not the city acts
to make laxity in shoveling a sin, it can easily
be seen that Ann Arbor citizens' sense of com-
munity responsibility is just now at a remarkably

Of Dr. Huber .
THE UNTIMELY DEATH of Dr. G.
Carl Huber, beloved scholar,
teacher and admiriistrator, was a loss which will be
deeply felt by both the University and the world
of medical science. The noted scientist's career in
the service of his University had extended over a
period of nearly half a century.
Repeatedly recognized for his many achieve-
ments, he was an active member of a number
of learned societies and had been president of
the American Association of Anatomists. He was
also the author of various authoritative works on
the subject of histology and had been a constant
contributor to numerous scientific journals.
Last month Dr. Huber was honored by a group of
his colleagues on the teaching staff as "the member
of the University faculties who is regarded as hav-
ing attained highest distinction in the field of
scholarship" when he was awarded the Henry Rus-
sel lectureship for 1934-35. Several weeks ago the
University was presented with a bronze bust of
Dr. Huber. the gift of his tree children.
In addition to rendering invaluable services to
Michigan as a teacher and an administrator, he
had been a director of the Alumni Association of
the University sincea18397 and from 1930-32swas
He remained as active on the campus as his
physician would permit until the time of his
death. Associates valued him as a true friend and
advisor at all times. Those who studied under him,
as well as his colleagues, knew him as a teacher
of students rather than subjects.
1OR YEARS there has been sporadic
criticism of student government -
both as to its form and functions. Occasionally
as criticism has come to a head there have been
enthusiastic outbursts resulting in the establish-
ment of new governments, but these in turn were
too often hastily conceived and rushed into being
without sufficient chance for consideration.
One after another these governments have failed
to gain student support and have ultimately fallen,
dragging down with them into disrepute the whole
idea of student government. In recent years even
criticism has become feeble and disheartened, but
the criticism of apathy has bcome overwhelming.
with resentment, Sen. Huey P. Long prepared
today to strike back at President Roosevelt on the
floor of the United States Senate next week in a
controversy with the White House over Louisiana
Just read about your spat with the President.
You sure got him going. Boy, you're the Kingfish,
all right, all right. You can sure tell him, Huey.
But, hey, wait a minute. Huey. You know the
President's a pretty popular man these days.
Why, you know, Huey, the President's been send-
ing quite a slug of Federal cash into Louisiana
these last two years. In fact, you know, Huey, you
might not be such a big man yourself if the Fed-
eral cash quit coming. Ever stop to thing of that,
Remember how you fixed things with the Pres-
ident way back in 1932 at the Chicago convention?
Remember you came with a bootleg delegation
and you got your men in by promising to vote for
Franklin Roosevelt. You knew what side your bread
was buttered on then. Why not think now?
All in all, Huey, it might be a good idea for you
to sort of humor the President along. Of course
you're the Kingfish, but you know how them big
guys are. You got to play with them. Folks think
quite a bit of him, and some people don't think
you're so hot right now. Take a tip, Huey, and calm
down. - A Pal.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.
A CASUAL SURVEY of the flood of bills poured
into the House hopper of the new Congress
on opening day was enough to send shivers of
alarm down conservative --and even mildly lib-
eral - backbones. They appeared to justify gloomy
predictions that a "wildman" Congress had come

had actually been filed, House Democrats in over-
whelming majoriy had doomed most of the lot,
perhaps all but one, to extinction. Lacking White
House backing, none of the fancy assortment of
depression cure-alls, 1935 model, ever will get be-
yond a committee pigeonhole.
rF1HE EXCEPTION is H. R. No. 1. That is the
Patman pay-the-bonus bill. It has enjoyed
No. 1 status ever since 1930 in Congress after
Congress. It is a bigger No. 1 in this Congress
Whatever has to be done about changing House
rules to tighten administration control had to be
done in the light of that special status of H. R.
No. 1. The first job of the Byrns-Bankhead House
leadership team was to do away with the "liberal-
ized" committee discharge rule rushed through by
the jubilating Democrats in 1931 when they unex-
pectedly seized power in the House. They did it
smoothly and neatly. They did it by virtue of a
gentlemen's agreement to let the bonus bill come
to a vote without delay or obstructive tactics.
A change requiring 218 signatures instead of 145
as a prerequisite for a move in the House itself
to force any bill cut of committee interment, does
not seem on its face such a significant matter. In
fact, it spells all the difference between effective
leadership and workable party organization in
the House and virtual legislative chaos. That "lib-
eralized" discharge rule of '31, so proudly hailed
as a triumph for the majority rule principal of
representative democracy by former Representa-
tive Crisp of Georgia, its author, was the bane
of the Rainey-Byrns leadership in the last House
and of the White House.
CRISP'S RULE, hand-polished over years of ex-
pert observation of the House and its rules
was a product of minority thinking. Its author
could and did argue that it did not give excep-
tional powers in legislation; that actual discharge
of a committee to force a vote on the rule could
be accomplished only by an actual majority vote
of the required quorum of the House.
But a minority of 145 could and frequently did
in the last session force the House to vote on the
