Choosing The Groupr
To Educate...
ONSISTENCY is not always the
{a hobgoblin of little minds. There is
no consistency in the attitude of men in public
office who fill the records with talk about our great
democracy and meanwhile scheme to cripple or
even abolish public higher education.
A representative in the Texas legislature has
introduced a oill to raise the yearly tuition at the
state university as the first step in a move to make
the school self-supporting. The fact that Texas
students enthusiastically burned the legislator in
effigy does not do away with his bill or remove
the ever-present danger that college education will
be ruthlessly slashed in an inconsiderate moment.
The Texas representative admits that he is
acting at the suggestion of taxpayers, and not be-
cause of any desire'. . . to eliminate any students

from the possibility of obtaining a higher educa-
tion." Another backer of the bill who calls himself
"a lobbyist for the people" declares that taxes
are now confiscatory, and that it is not the proper
function of the government to confer higher
education at excessive cost to only a select few of
its citizens.
The argument of these men seems to boil down
to the fact that the appropriations for running
the state's three institutions of higher education
are somewhat more each year than the total annual
deficit. Thus, cut off the schools - end the deficit.
Very simple! No other retrenchment would affect
the deficit. It would not help to cut the size of the
legislative bodies, for instance, or consolidate
county and township governments.
No one expects that higher education can or
should be extended to more than a select few of
the state's young people, but the method of choos-
ing those few becomes all the more important
for that reason.
The more tuitions are raised the more financial
means rather than intellectual qualifications be-
come the condition of higher education. State
universities, while not strictly free, differ from
private schools in that they are dedicated to mak-
ing higher education available to other than rich
emen's sons - in fact, to even the poorest men's
sons, as was shown in a recent tabulation here.
Michigan has been concerned for many years in
formulating entrance requirements that would
approach the ideal of admitting those best fitted
as students.
If, instead, it should be thought more desirable
to make college educations available only to those
whose parents can afford it, to encourage the
perpetuation of a false aristocracy, to turn our
haks on the nnrtnity of which we have alwavs

Student Cri icism
OnThe FEA ...
Gram last week concerning the
pending plan of the FERA committee to sound out
faculty opinion on the present set-up of student
aid here should be welcomed in all quarters as an
attempt to make constructive plans for the FERA
program for the future.
It should be pointed out to the committee, how-
ever, that the only way to get a complete view of
the FERA scene is to include in the inquiry an
expression- of the views of the students who are
working under the projects. The combination of
faculty and student ideas will lay down a founda-
tion from which any reforms that may be neces-
sary can better be instituted, doing justice to all
aspects of the program.
Faculty criticism of the FERA, although valuable
in itself, is almost certain to give a rather one-
sided view of the question. Each individual is na-
turally concerned with advancement of projects
in whatever field he has particular interest.
Students usually take a broader and certainly a
distinctly different outlook on the whole matter.
Those who pu in their time on FERA jobs can
and will cooperate with the committee if they
are asked to do so. Their opinions should be equally
valuable with those of the faculty, for many of
them will be extremey - and justly - critical.
As Others See It
Fraternity Defense
ORDERS FOR MICHIGAN'S fraternity "clean-
up" brought forth a sympathetic defense
from at least one source, the editorial columns of
The Daily Illini:
President Ruthven's ultimatum marks the crit-
ical appraisal of the fraternity system today.
Probably one of the main reasons for the criticism
of fraternities is due to the high standards which
they have set for themselves. There is no other
existing group on any campus that has as high
ideals for which they are responsible. There1
is no other existing group on any campus that
has provided such high standards of living and
ideal group life as the fraternities.
The fraternity system has made a contribution
of living conditions that the state and school has
been financially unable to make during the de-
pression years. This fact should be remembered in
face of the criticism of the Greek letter system.1
Fraternities build their membership from the
ordinary ranks of the student body and there-
fore the group has as many human frailties as
those found among the individuals in a student
rooming house. When these facts are considered
can any honest critic say that the fraternities
have failed?
Peace Proposal
SEN. ELBERT E. THOMAS' proposal that the
United States and Japan exchange 10,000
students for four years' study - at a little more
than the cost of a battleship for each country
-may not go far in legislative halls but it caught
the ear of the college papers of the country. The
Minnesota Daily commented:
A rather startling suggestion was made on
the Senate floor a few days ago by Utah's
Senator Elbert E. Thomas, one-time teacher
in Japan .. .
"Nations who have no fear of each other,
and who understand each other, will never
fight," declares the Utah senator.-
Of course this suggestion from a "school
teacher" will not be acted upon. The DuPonts
and the Grays of the country would rather
fortify abstract national honor with steel
ships than with intellectual structures. It is
easier to build hate than to create under-
Thomas' suggestion, to paraphrase what a
famous militarist recently said about disarm-
ament conferences, "is impractical. Men want
the feel of earth under their feet."
Or over their heads .. .

Customs and traditions play a large part at
I Oxford Univer,;ty, a part hardly to be imagined
by collegians il the United States. One of the
most amusing is the "sconce" which is the penalty
for a recognized faux pas such as mentioning
a girl's name of the table, using profane lan-
guage at the table or coning in late, and so on.
In *such a case, the head waiter soon comes
around to the offender and announces, "Mr. -
presents his compliments, sir, and wishes to know
whether you will have beer or cider." But the of-
fender must pay for it.
Then he attempts to drain the two quart pail
in one draught - and if he does, he may order a
pail for the crap who sent it, and he in turn
must try to drink it in one draught.
This continues until someone misses.
A professor at the University of Washing-
tn, an ex-editor of a college daily, tells the
story of a girl reporter who rushed to his office,
declaring that she had but scant time to fill
in so many inches of space, and demanded
GCme ideas. The professor concentrated for a
few minutes then started talking. Glibly with
precision he recalled more than a score of fea-
tures that came to his mind. Peering out of the
window all the time, he worked harder he
said, than he ever had in a lecture. Turning
suddenly, he met the lucid gaze of his lis-
tener. She said:'
"May I borrow your pencil?"
Dartmouth University is leading the list for the
liberal attitude taken by the administration. Liquor
and women in the dormitories have been approved
by the officials. The idea is that no rules will be
enforced where none exist.
We like this contribution sent in by M.N.K.:
I like college professors.
College professors are people who get the money
paid for tuition.
Some college professors earn their money.
The chief duty of college professors is to put
marks on examination papers.
These marks are A.B.C.D.E.
The multiplicity of marks works a hardship on
the professors.
It makes the problem of deciding which mark to
put on which paper a complicated one.
Several methods of solving this have been de-
Some professors use a scientific method.
They mark the first five papers E, the next five
D, the next five C, and so on through A and then
start over again.
Others read the papers over and put on the first
mark that comes to their mind.
The entrance to a college professor's mind is a
very narrow one.
Usually one mark can squeeze through.
This mark is E.
College professors are good, hard working guys.
I like them.
Ouff The Record
rT'HE SENATE was discussing oil. Sen. Thomas D.
Schall of Minnesota took the floor in a tirade
that soon involved Senators Joseph T. Robinson
and Burton K. Wheeler of Montana.
For a minute Sen. Tom Connally of Texas, who
had innocently yielded the floor to Schall, listened
to the noise. Then he demanded the floor back.
I"This is an oil bill," he said dryly, "not a gas bill."
Representative Josh Lee of Oklahoma claims
he knows why Napoleon was always pictured
with his hand inside of his great coat.
"I, too, met the 'cootie' in France," says Lee.

After the w ordy theorizing and aimless gab
of well-meaning pacifists, it is refreshing to
hear the suggestion of Senator Thomas who is
proposing in Washington a measure which if
adopted may do much to avoid possibilities of
war between this country and Japan . . .
This is an excellent proposal and there will
be a good chance for its adoption if feeling in
official quarters has not already run too high
for such an amicable arrangement and if Mr.
Hearst will be satisfied that the proposal is
"American" enough for him to permit its being
put into effect.
Unqualified approval is expressed by the Cali-
fornia Daily Bruin:
Sen. Elbert E. Thomas of Utah has advanced
a novel and promising plan of assuring peace
in the Pacific .. .
The scheme's advantages far outweigh its
difficulties. Properly carried out, it would do
on a large scale what the Rhodes scholarships
have been doing for years in strengthening
Anglo-American friendship.
That some such system of developing inter-
national good-will is vitally needed at the pres-
ent time seems plainly apparent. The United
States is novi preparing the largest military
spending program in 15 years. Battleships do
not excel as good-will ambassadors.
It is time the t a few positive methods of pre-
serving peace be tried out as possible future
substitutes ir the exhausting and friction-

He ate regular meals of imported cheese on the
desk of Ambassador Joseph C. Grew of Japan, who
was then undersecretary of state. Grew hunted!
lions on vacations but contented himself with a
mouse within the sacred state department portals.
Once Squeaky startled the then British ambas-
sador, Sir Esme Howard, by jumping on Grew's
desk while the two men conferred.
Now Charles Breeder, a negro messenger, con-
fesses that he executed Squeaky on orders from
the then assistant secretary, Leland Harrison, who
neither hunted lions nor liked mice. His office was
across the hall from Grew.
