Passing Of
A Scholar.. .
T HE PASSING of Prof. Samuel Moore
is a significant cause for mourning
throughout the. University. In his death is recog-
nized the loss of one of Michigan's most brilliant
scholars.
In his work as editor of the Middle English
Dictionary, Professor Moore was perpetuating pre-
cisely what great scholars for centuries have ex-
pressed as the most.vital part of the life and future
exstence of higher learning, namely, research.
It is the type of man with whom we associate
Professor Moore upon which the success and
reputation of the University of Michigan rests. It is
particularly men of his calibre on whom President
Conant of Harvard said that he relied for the
true meaning of a liberal educat.ion..
The esteem in which Professor Moore was held
here is linked with both reverence and respect:
reverence for an honest scholar and respect for the
real educator who goes unsung.
Where It Begins
To Pinch .
D UE TO CERTAIN characteristic
peculiarities of the economic cycle,
the University's enrollment showed a considerable
falling off a year or more before the State Legisla-
ture got around to mangling the annual appro-
priation beyond recognition. The retrenchments
made necessary by the cut, were not easy to ac-
complish, but they were managed in one way or
another, the University was still a few jumps ahead
of the depression, and everybody was, or should
have been, comparatively happy.
Now comes the rub. As the result -of a sudden
and unexpected jump in attendance, the University
is responsible for the education of 1,000. more
students than it had last year - and on approxi-
mately the same total appropriatsion. Even if the
greater enrollment is an indication of the return
of better times, it will be a long time before the
State sees its way to begin doling out the generous
contributions that it once made. So now the Uni-
versity begins, to face problems it never had in
the worst of hard times. And it may become worse.
A's Others See It
' Secret' Practice
HE EDITOR. of The Californian is puzzled.
He was handed a season pass to "secret"
football practice the other day, and he, of course,
appreciates the opportunity to see the A.S.U.C.
Varsity in action. But he can see no reason why he,
as editor,.should be permitted to attend "secret"
practice sessions, when more than 7,000 A.S.U.C.
members are now allowed to see their team prac-
tice.
.The notion that a football team has to have
secret sessions was efficiently blasted last year
Down on the Farm when Coach "Tiny" Thorn-
hill abolished the "secret" sessions, but yet had a
fairly successful season, defeating both California
and Southern California. In fact, so successful was
Thornhill in building up student support and spirit
that Coach "Slip" :Madigan is going to follow a
similar policy out of at St. Mary's this year.
It has been suggested that students would swarm
all over the field, literally "getting in everybody's
hair" down on Edwards' Field, if allowed to watch
their Varsity practice. To such, we reply: no one
knows whether or not that would be the case.
We feel that students would be willing to stay
in the temporary bleachers on the west end of
Edwards' field, or the permanent bleachers, or else
on the lawn directly in front of the gymnasium.
The only other argument against opening secret
practice sessions is this: last year each Wednes-
day was set aside as a visitors' day, and few stu-
dents attended. No wonder! Each Wednesday was
SET ASIDE; the Varsity did little in the way of
practice those days.
Would it not be feasible to abolish secret foot-
ball practice? Let students see their team prac-
tice - at least three or four days each week! "Sec-
ret" practice, as it now exists, is a polite farce!
-The Daily Californian.

Make Rush Easier
E PAUW'S FRATERNITY rushing system has
undergone considerable improvement during
the past two seasons, but conversations with va-
rious fraternity men has confirmed our opinion
that another change should be made.
So far as the actual working of the system is
concerned, it seems absolutely foolproof and is
about the ideal plan for DePauw. The only draw-
back, and this is important, is that the intensive
period comes at the wrong time. Fraternity rush
conflicts with the beginning of classes and with the
initial efforts of campus activities to such an ex-
tent that they are all crippled severely. The same
fact is true of sorority rush, to an even greater
degree.
Also, though fraternity and sorority rushing sea-
sons are very important to those concerned, there
are others on the campus to whom they mean
nothing. Since approximately only 55 per cent of
DePauw students are organized it is hardly fair
to hold up the whole university in order that rush
may be consummated. Rush should be at such a
time that it could be entirely separated from other
campus affairs.
We do not feel that the abolition of "open
house," periods of silence, and preference bidding
would improve the point under consideration, but
if it were possible to arrange the time element
more conveniently, we are sure that all 'students
involved would enter the season more' whole-
heartedly and feel better satisfied with the results.
Possible solutions range from the opening of rush
week several days earlier, with preference match-
ings before classes start, to a delayed system, in

The Old, old Story
A NEW CAMPAIGN to abolish military training
has been started on the Berkeley campus.
Labeled by the instigators as an "intensive drive,"
it seems destined for an early fade-out. Between
opposition from the University administration,
threats from student R.O.T.C. sympathizers who
promise the leaders "a punch in the eye," rebellion
in the ranks, and unauthorized use of certain
students' names, the movement is punch-drunk;
in its first four days of existence and needs only
one more good haymaker to lay it among the
lilies.
Every year there is the same old fight. Each new
crop of students contains sincere and altruistic
crusaders who feel that they have a mission to save
the long-suffering lower division students from
their tiresome drill and military instruction.
But somehow these poor long-suffering students
do not care very much whether crusaders work
in their interests or not, and some, in fact, pave
very definitely resented interference with what
they consider to be a very interesting course of
study. So there really isn't much a good crusader
can do about it. -California Daily Bruin.

Colleg iate ObserverI
By BUD BERNARD
My Ohio State correspondent sends me
this true incident, from that campus. It is the"'
story of a coy co'-ed who was cured of that
annoyng habit of injecting an "r" sound in
each word. Here is the actual phone call be-
tween her and a male friend.
Male.: "Hello cutie."
Co-ed: "Hello Phillurp, when did you get
back?"
Male: "Just a while ago. Say, how about a
date tonight? What are you doing?
Co-ed (coyly): "Nurthin'."
Male: Gosh, excuse me. I didn't know.

After 70 years of walking their partners staidly
to and fro on the library lawn, young men of
Texas Christan College may at last indulge in
Jazz Dancing in company with the ladies. This is
undoubtedly a manifestation of the New Deal, for
it is reasonable to believe that dancing instructors
will find this an amazing stimulus to business.
Modern marriage, says a student at the Uni-
versity of Maryand is ike a cafeteria. You grab
what you want - and pay later.
Union College boys yell "Heads Out"' when a
beautiful damsel from a nearby seminary passes
in front of the dorm and fraternity houses. A few
minutes later heads pop from every window. The
boys take careful account of the passing figure.
The fair young things from the seminary pine
their lives away hoping the "rowdies" will grow up.

He putteth on a goodlie frown.

A group of men students at the University of
Washington who just returned from a course of
study at the University of Edinburgh state that
"the girls not only have to pay their own carfare
when you take them home from a dance, but they
always pay for their own tickets when you take
them to a theatre." Gentle' hint?

COLLEGIATE commentators on current events
rarely have so swift and pat illustrations of
their points come to hand as fell to the lot of Pres-
ident Hopkins of Dartmouth.
In the very hour of his declaration concerning
collegiate "brain trusting" as an aid to the science
of government in which he said "provers" to test
the practicality of projects evolved by theorists
were equally essential to sociological progress, the
Winant board report on the textile strike was being
made public.
The report falls exactly into line with Dr. Hop-
kins' idea that "brain trusting" in governmental
affairs is the laboratory stage of social engineering.
He holds that, like new machines for industry,
new sociological methods and mechanism must
be proved in practice by a corps of hard-boiled and
experienced practical experts.
That is what, exactly, the Winant board pro-
poses be done about the pilot NRA code
the cotton textile code. The planners, organizers
and theorists having turned it out under the "New
Deal" theory that regimentation was the way back
to prosperity, only to bring on the biggest strike
yet of the 'New Deal," Governor Winant and his
board colleagues have mapped a specific program
of reimplementation of the code which met with
prompt acceptance in toto by President Roose-
velt,
THERE IS THIS significant fact to be noted. The
President, Dr. Hopkins, and Governor Winant,
are friends. Differences in political labels do not
prevent their thinking much alike on sociological
problems. Dr. Hopkins may have had the Winant
board and Winant himself directly in mind when
