Round Table
Reorganized. .
FRESHMAN ROUND TABLE will be
reorganized this year. In response
to the questions of many interested students,
it was announced Thursday that these regular
Sunday discussions on broad religious questions
will not only be continued this year but every
attempt will be made to give them greater value
from the point of view of the average student.
Dr. E. W. Blakeman, counselor in religious edu-
cation, the Student Christian Association, and a
committee' of University students -all interested
in providing an activity in which students of all
beliefs, religious or non-religious, might participate
in discussions of vital problems of life - have co-
operated in formulating plans for the immediate
organization of the Round Table.
On a campus as large as this it is always pos-
sible that great numbers of students will be en-
tirely unaware of such a discussion place as this,
even though it is student-inspired and claims the
attention of enough persons to keep it alive and
vital. Planned for the benefit of the student and
no one else, such a group can be worthwhile only
if it enlists the spontaneous support of those who
attend. It has no desire to ballyhoo its program,
but wants only to make students conscious of
its presence so that they may not -leave this cam-
pus feeling that their spiritual interests have suf-
fered for lack of encouragement.
These discussions, beginning tomorrow, will be
held every Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock in Lane
Hall. The first leader will be Dr. Blakeman, who,
long a worker in the field of religious education,,
was named by President Ruthven as the first coun-
selor to students within the University. He will
open a discussion on the application of religion
to modern economic and sociological problems, the
first of a series of similar parleys on challenging
subjects.
. The "new" Round Table is designed to appeal
especiallyto lower classmen, but the participation
of all who care to come is welcomed.

By BUD BERNARD
The co-eds at one of the co-operative cottages at
Ohio State University are putting in frantic calls
to the university department these days trying to
find out definitely if that department requires
homework of its students.
Last week a new girl moved in with them. At
dinner the first night of her stay, one of the resi-
dents in an attempt at sociability popped the in-
escapable, "What course are you taking?"
Came the reply, "Enbalming and funeral direct-
ing."
A so-called B.M.O.C. sends me in the follow-
ing contrib:
CO-EDS --BLAH
There is one thing a college man can't go and that's
a co-ed -
She's the finest living example of a flop, a dub, a
dough-head
She's a bit of fluff, a smear of lipstick, a couple
eyes, a hat
She has no conception at any time exactly what
the score is
She has the bad taste to refer to a man's fraternity
as a frat
She makes one realize in full what a complete un-
tiring bore is
Her vocabulary includes few words other than
smoking, drinking, dating
To be thrown in daily contact with her is most
degenerating
She thinks a man becomes her slave by one long
side-way glance
She does nothing really well, can't walk or play
or dance
Dance'! Say! I meant to take in that brawl tonite
and its sort of late
I wonder what co-ed on this campus doesn't have
a date.
We read of some giant intellects out at the
University of California (Los Angeles) who have
formed a suicide club and have pledged themselves
to jump from the highest point of the campus
bell tower should their school lose a football game.
A game lost might be something after all.
* * * *
There are two kinds of co-eds says a student
at the University of Missouri: those who expect
things and those who suspect things.
Students at Marshall College have put out a
manual telling professors the proper way to act
before a class. Among the other don'ts the follow-
ing appeared: "It is discourteous for the professor
to interrupt a recitation to tell the class personal
reminiscences."

The College
Season . ..

THE COLLEGE SEASON is here.
Some call it the football season,
which amounts to the sane thing. Actually, how-
ever,- all the 93,000 who pay good money to see
an Ohio State-Michigan game and the millions
who read about it next day are not interested
alone in the 22 men who follow the prescribed rules
for 60 minutes. Many are drawn to Ann Arbor
and to the" Michigan Stadium by the color and
glamor that are supposedly constant components
of college life.
Football has done more than its part to make
America college-conscious. It has given the Amer-
ican public a stereotype of undergraduate life that
may be largely false, but it has also interested
that public to a far greater degree in all phases
of higher education - even such drab matters
as intellectual achievement.
The best that remains of college spirit crystal-
lizes annually around football. Football brings the
alumni back; it makes both old grads and student
body feel a concrete loyalty that intellectual pur-
suits would never bring about. Few of them can
help thrilling at the spectacle of trained athletes
in physical combat, the marching band, the tense
crowd.
Overshadowed by the proximity of an exciting
World Series, Michigan's 1934 football season has
stolen almost silently upon the scene. The .World
Series is not the only reason why Michigan stu-
dents have not given less thought to today's opener
With Michigan State. Constant victory has left
them either pretty confident of another winning
season ahead or less concerned over an occasional
defeat.
Contrary to the law of averages, the business
cycle, and any other paraphernalia the sports
scribes may bring into play to determine who's
going to do what, it's hard to get very depressed
about Michigan's prospects for the season, even
if the boys can't be conceded the Big Ten title
quite as handily as they were before the last two
campaigns started.
It's no secret that every team they meet will be
out to win its major game of the season; the
team that has been on top for four years is never
any too popular among its rivals. Even the more
or less disinterested public easily, shifts its sym-
pathy to the underdog. For that reason alone,
every victory this fall will be worth twice one of
last year's_

'Who Wears The Pants?
NOTHING, APPARENTLY, in the masculine
realm is sacred by the emancipated women.
Especially not by the U.C.L.A. freshman edition of
new womanhood.
Nearly everyone thought that the utmost in
daring femininity was reached by the young ladies
who, clad as gentlemen, crashed a Men's Do a year
or two ago.
But the worst was yet to come and is now con-
fronting us. Two women of the freshman class yes-
terday demanded -- and got - petitions for fresh-
man class treasurer from a slightly upset official.
Upon scanning the A.S.U.C. constitution nd by-
laws, the candidates were unable to find anything
which would prevent their running for office. So
they just decided to give the boys a race for their
money.
Now there are traditions and traditions, but one
of the real, sterling, untarnishable traditions,
which has existed ever since any of the present stu-
dent body can remember, is that men students
shall be elected to the offices of president and
treasurer and that women shall be chosen for
vice-president and secretary of the various classes.
This kind of tradition, as opposed to the Guard-
the-Seal funny business, is tradition what am tra-
dition. The mere idea of the weaker sex trying
to dissolve masculine prerogatives should have
every true tradition lover on his feet ready to
fight in a minute.
Of course there might be difficulties in en-
forcing such a time-honored custom, because a
committee appointed to try to keep women from
running for traditional masculine offices would
necessarily have to be composed of men and would
thus be completely exposed to feminine wiles.
It looks bad for men all the way around, since
any man running for the heretofore feminine office
of class vice-president would be faced, if elected
with the necessity of serving on the A.W.S. council
along with all the other class vice-presidents.
Something had better be done, and quick, before
men are driven out of everything and the campus
once more laughingly known as the Westwood
School for Girls.

Student Support For The Team
THIS SUBJECT of school spirit is beginning to
sound like old stuff to a lot of us. It can still
however be made an integral part of this insti-
tution, if co-operation from the students is ob-
tained.
With this in mind, the State News is printing
on the first page of this issue a copy of the
yells of the college as compiled by Carleton Spen-
cer, head cheerleader. It is hoped that all of
the new students will avail tpemselves of this
opportunity to learn them. There are some older
students, even seniors, who would do well to at
least casually glance over the list.
It seems odd that a school as large as State and
supporting teams that have achieved the enviable
reputation which our teams have, should have such
a poor cheering section. Even at last Saturday's
game the Boy Scouts in the east stands were mak-
ing more noise than the Spartan supporters did.
Of course, one may argue that it was only the
first game and not considered a real contest, but
Grinnell did present a remarkably improved team
over former years and the game was interestingly
close, but still the cheers lacked spirit. Even in the
admittedly toughest games of last year's schedule,
the support for the team was very weak.
This matter of school spirit is not just a display
of high school kids' enthusiasm. A good cheering
section not only helps a team gain confidence, it
also sneaks well for the school which it rnre-

A Washington
BYSTANDER

i

By KIRKE SIMPSON

IN THE LIGHT of Herculean labors he has so
confidently undertaken since his inauguration,
no one is likely to question the boldness of Presi-
dent Franklin D. Roosevelt.
It took political "nerve" of the highest order
to sponsor many "New Deal," left-leaning inno-
vations and at the same time to frustrate such
powerful thrusts from left-wing extremists as the
Congressional drives for a 30-hour week in in-
dustry and mandatory currency inflation. It took
tact, super-persuasive power and political acumen
to absorb the first into NRA for pigeonholing,
and to smother the other into a mere grant of
exceptional presidential authority over the cur-
rency.
A man with those achievements behind him rea-
sonably may hope to accomplish a temporary paci-
fication of the endless battle between capital and
labor in industry - to "civilize our industrial civ-
ilization" as the President himself put it - where
to another political leader it might seem beyond
the range of possibility. The first repercussions
from both capital and labor, despite approving
generalities that cloak them, contain what look
very much like monkey wrenches for insertion in
the cogs of the presidential industrial peace
machinery.
MR. ROOSEVELT proposes to attempt his drive
for "a specific trial period of industrial peace"
through personal conferences with small groups
"truly representative" of "large" employers and of
"large" groups of organized labor. Exactly the
significance to be attached to the word "truly" re-
mains to be seen.
President Green of the American Federation
of Labor quite naturally assumed the post of
speaker for organized labor. His approval of the
presidential peace project was coupled, however,
with a reiteration of the thesis that it is organized
labor's job, and particularly that of the A.F. of L.
to police enforcement of Section 7-a of NRA codes
as long as employers continued to "flout" it. That
is how he explains the big and little strikes which
the codes have not prevented.
The National Association of Manufacturers pops
out its own acceptance of the presidential sug-
gestion, also with strings attached. It converts
the idea into a "truce," a word the President care-
fully avoided, to last for the duration of the depres-
sion. How lang is that? Who is to say?
The manufactures' spokesman also charges
labor with using the strikes "with the sole pur-
pose" of building up union membership and forc-
ing recognition, regardless of economic conse-
