Michigan knew that Joe College had left here
long before he was ejected from some schools where
collegiatism retained its vogue. But occasionally,
here as elsewhere, there comes an outburst of high
schoolish enthusiasm that may leave a mark bigger
than all the years of sanity.
Stories of the freshman mob that staged part
of the class games in a local sorority house have
gone abroad. "Well," caustically comments the
Ohio State Lantern, "Joe College isn't dead. He is
going to Michigan this year."

WASHINGTON, Jan. 9.
WHEN VICE-PRESIDENT Jack Garner banged
his desk to signalize the launching of the
Senate of the new Congress quite a troop of party
colleagues looked on, or read of it, in envy. There
are plenty of them eager to fill his shoes two years
from now. And it still is unknown whether "Texas
Jack" is as definitely resolved on retirement from
public life at that time as he was immediately after
the election of the Roosevelt-Garner ticket in '32.
Garner is reported to have advised Mr. Roose-
velt in writing of his intention as soon as the '32 re-
sults were known. If that is the fact other Demo-,
crats eager to run in his stead in '36 hardly can
expect to get any information as to their pros-
pects from Garner. His letter hangs over his head.
He hardly could ask to withdraw it. Which would
seem to put the President as completely in control
of selection of his next running mate as his
Republican adversary, whoever he may be.
Nevertheless, assuming Garner has not written
that reputed retirement-in-'36 letter - and no
one professes to have seen it -he could have every
anticipation of carrying on. Mr. Roosevelt has
made much of him. He bids fair to be an important
if silent partner throughout the presept Congress
in working out administration legislative strategy.
He is something of a factor in the careful game
of rapprochement with business the White House
was playing so markedly as the session opened.
Any doubter that the administration was play-
ing that game is respectfully referred to Secretary
Dan Roper of the commerce department. His
cheerful voice was raised more loudly and enthu-
siastically in New Year's happy-days-are-here-
again forecasts than that of any other cabineteer.
An imposing number of statistical indices of his
business forecast of "clearing, with fairer weather
ahead" were listed. But right up at the top Roper
"No longer does the impression prevail that the
administration is opposed to the profit system."
Things being thus, it would seem that Garner
would make an ideal second term running mate
for the chief New Dealer in '36.
Without saying anything at all the Texan has
achieved in print a reputation for old fashioned
And if he is to retire, visions of Secretary Ickes
as his possible successor representing a sort of
move toward political realignment, must rise to
daunt the very conservatives Roper has been seek-
ing to reassure. It is a queer mix-up.
Here is something. At Illinois, a mistletoe ex-
periment was given a trial in one of the campus
hangouts, and in 50 per cent of the cases the male
welched. The reason! Maybe he wants privacy:
Maybe he is a sissy, we suspect he is. Maybe, as a
solumnist on the Daily Illini suggests, he is just
After Red Grange's sophomore year at Illinois a
sports writer on the Indiana Daily student did not
pick him on his all-conference eleven, explaining
that all Grange can do is run. The Daily Illini
printed the explanation with the caption: "All
Galli Curci can do is sing."

Here's a letter received today:
This dating situation at Michigan is really
getting serious. It seems as though all the girls
that we boys would enjoy taking out are
mortgaged. In other words there are too many
girls going steady on this campus. Another
calamity confronts us brys who wish to make
a daft! every now and then. It seems as though
the more popular girls on this campus make
dates two and three weeks in advance. This
r.events many fellows, (and believe me, many
sooth fellows) from taking them out. They do
not want to make a date that far in advance.
There are some serious minded students on
this campus who don't know whether they
will be able to go out two or three weeks in
Bud, here is my plan. Why don't you start
a campaign against this practice? I'm sure it
will be supported by a larger group than you
can realize. Once you get support, which you
undoubtedly can, let's refuse to date these
girls that keep up this practice.
Also it would be a good thing to remind these
girls that J-Hop isn't so far off.
Hoping I will see this letter in print, I am,
Well fellows, there is the letter. Are you in
favor of it? It sounds good, E.M.L., maybe the
appeal sent by Mosher appearing a little below
might aid you.
A columnist in the University Daily Kansan
offers this as a sure cure for deflation of ego, that
dread disease. Sit on the steps of one of the busiest
buildings on campus and keep a record of the
people who pass by and the number who speak to
you. You can quit as soon as you like after you
figure up your per cents the first time.
Here's a letter which is a good answer to
the letter above.

SLOW TO COME to American higher
institutions, radical educational ex-
periments are today bobbing up throughout the
country at ever more frequent intervals. One of the
latest examples is the mid-winter recess at Ben-
mington College two-and-one-half-year-old girls'
school in Vermont.
Like most major educational experiments, the
two-month recess at Bennington is an effort to
stimulate intellectual independence and encourage
a sense of responsibility on the party of the indi-
Bennington's administrators were not content to
follow the lead of other progressive schools-cut-
ting classes, lectures, and examinations to a mini-
mum, increasing student-faculty contacts beyond
the formal ones of the classroom, end dividing the
work into distinct junior and senior divisions. They
did that - and more.
Most novel contribution of the Bennington sys-
tem is the long winter recess which does not end
until the last of February. During this time the
230 women who are studying there will go away
completely on their own to do field work in all
parts of North America and even in Europe.
Some of the women intend to work in hosiery
mills. Art students will frequent the galleries and
attach themselves as apprentices to working artists.
Marine biologists will carry on study in the waters
near Bermuda. Government students will look be-
hind the scenes at Washington. Social service stu-
dents will be found in settlement houses and in
the Emergency Relief Administration. Science stu-
dents will report to clinics.
Education on this lavish scale is expensive even
for those women who are said to be able to get
secret reductions from the regular tuition rate of
$1,000. Education on this scale would never be
practicable for more than a few. But such educa-
tion can perhaps be the measuring stick that will
determine how far in chat direction our staid old
educational institutions should be permitted to go.
The Political Interneship Idea
ANNOUNCEMENT was recently made of a plan
for "interneships" in political science whereby
qualified students will be given an opportunity
to study practical politics under political leaders.
Each student will be a sort of understudy to the
official who will be his instructor.
The plan suggests the possibility of extending
this method to other lines of study. The gulf be-
between the practical and the scholastic has always
been a major problem to educators. In recent
years, it has been acknowledged by all authorities
that the practical value of a college education in
eliminating the time-honored necessity of starting
at the bottom has become non-existent. The value
of a college education, they maintain, is wholly
cultural. But the interneship idea suggests a way
To the competent graduate, the long, slow pro-
cess of working his way to the top is unnecessarily
long and slow. His grasp of basic theory and
principle entitles him to a more rapid and more
systematized advancement. In a period of interne-
ship, during which he could systematically learn
the more practical elements of his job, this need
would be fulfilled. No well-equipped graduate
would be compelled to fret under routine details,
nor would he be put in responsible places with

In Behalf Of The League
To the Editor:
At the recent exhibition of Peace Films in Na-
tural Science Auditorium, Prof. P. W. Slosson
stated that the United States must now choose be-
tween participating in a next war or joining the
League of Nations and thereby making a next war
nn Nnv A 114 n.AT ppoir f Ta~inr fp'rrn
shall not engage in war with any nation except by
vote of Congress. Districts in which the question
appeared on the ballots include all or parts of 115
Massachusetts towns and cities. Of these only four
returned negative majorities. Of 216,935 votes, only
81,856 were in the negative. This victory for the
League of Nations is significant because it was
gained in the home state of the late Sen. H. C.
Lodge, leader in 1920 of opposition to American
entrance into the League. An analysis shows that
returns were about the same in Democratic and
in Republican strongholds.
Petition blanks asking our government to state
the terms under which the United States could
join the League of Nations can be signed in Room
