Of The Auto Bai. .
Regent Charles F. Hemans to mod-
ify drastically the regulation prohibiting the use
of automobiles by students was given a luke-warm
reception by a student body well-accustomed to
getting along without motor vehicles. Surprisingly
enough, there were no great demonstrations by
joyous undergraduates; rather their attitudes to-
wards the proposed relaxation were decidedly
When the ban was first enacted in 1927, under-
graduates immediately resented the move and
countered with charges of paternalism by the
administration. Now, after eight years, indications
seem to point definitely to a slow building up of fa-
vorable sentiment towards the ban. In the all-
campus poll conducted last year by the Under-
graduate Council, opinion was overwhelmingly op-
posed to complete abolition and almost evenly di-
vided on whether the regulation should be con-
tirued as it now exists or modified.
The relaxation suggested by Regent Hemans
whereby only freshmen and scholastically defi-
cent undergraduates would come under the pro-
visions of the ban would virtually abolish it com-
pletely. It is hardly necessary to point out that
the more exemptions that are allowed the more
difficult it will be to enforce the ruling. Under the
proposed set-up, any restriction whatever of the
use of motor vehicles would be nearly impossible.

It seems advisable, however, to modify the auto-
mobile ban so as to lower the existing age limit
when any student may drive. The all-campus poll
indicated that campus sentiment opposes relax-
ation of the regulation either to permit all seniors
to drive or to permit driving on the basis of
scholastic achievement. Those who voted did favor
modification to permit students with degrees to
Most of the arguments favoring the ban which
were advanced at the time the ruling was passed
do not apply to students in professional schools and
the graduate school who have already received
their A.B. degrees. Modification to permit that
group of students to drive is advisable, but the
wisdom of any change as radical as that sug-
gested by Regent Hemans is questionable. As far
as undergraduates are concerned, substantially
the same conditions which prompted the original
establishment of the ban would probably appear
again if it were abolished.
*Things And

out of college, Mr. White certainly suggests what
is by far the most important attainment at which
an undergraduate can aim.
To some it may come naturally, but it seems
that the majority of persons must consciously at-
tempt to school themselves in this way. Indeed,
it seems very likely that some undergraduates have
never realized the desirability of such a sense
of values.4
The worth of such attainment is manifest when
4ei considers the complexity of our lives today.
The college student, with his conflicting interests
and the many demands on his time, must learn to
make adjustments of one sort or another. Any
one matter can easily assume a disproportionate
place in an individual's mind, but with a little
thought it must be realized that only from giving
ch activity its most nearly correct emphasis can
cne get the most out of life.
College is the correct place to start training one-
self for a happy later life, for, after all, college is
pretty much a miniature world which exacts only
somewhat less responsibility from its members.

Looking At Long
To the Editor:
Together with Hitler, Hearst'and Father Cough-
lir it is Sen. Huey Long of Louisiana who has
beC"me the center of considerable attention as the
result of his widely advertised Utopian scheme
of "Share Our Wealth."
Up to the present time Senator Long has not
fully revealed the details of his plan, but as far
as he has revealed them they have been charac-
terized by some of our ablest thinkers as pure
demagogy. I refer the reader to a recent article by
Walter Lippmann on Senator Long's radio speech
in which the Senator's plan, as far as known, has
been shown as wholly unworkable. Mr. Lippmann
proves his point, not by vague phrases, but by
analyzing in detail the Senator's scheme.
It is also worth noting that the New York
Post recently addressed five questions to Mr.
Long to which the Senator's reply was unsatis-
Moreover the New Republic also addressed a
number of questions to Mr. Long to which no
answer has as yet been received from the Sen-
ator. (Cf. the New Republic, March 20: "Huey Long
Proposes.") I quote a few passages from that lib-
eral weekly: "Both his present program and his
speeches and writings over many years show a
profound ignorance of economic processes, and
how to get from one state of society to another.
. ' ' Senator Long's economies are those of a
naive utopian . . . Is he sincere in making his
proposals? If he got into the White House, would
he make an honest and realistic attempt to carry
them out? His record in Louisiana suggests that
he would not. His history up to now is that of a
clever, unscrupulous and ruthless politician who
plays upon the emotions of the rabble in order
to get into power, and then does almost nothing
to remedy the bad condition he has described .. .
Even if Long were sincere, his economic ignorance,
his total lack of understanding or appreciation
for the labor movement would make it almost
certain that he would fail . . . Nobody in America
has floued democratic processes so completely as
has Long in Louisiana . . . If elected President, he
would act the dictator from the moment he took
the oath of office . . . The working masses would
be enslaved by him as they have been enslaved
in Germany and Italy.. . We are opposed to Huey
Long, not because we are antagonistic to his ex-
pressed principle of making America a better place
for the common man but because we believe in it,
because we consider that for him to become Pres-
ident is one of the surest ways to prevent its real-

'We Have Done Nothing'

To the Editor:
Spring, it seems, is here again. The phenomenon
occurs annually to be sure, but this time the drone
of the bee and warmth of the bright sun is ac-
companied by the rumble of drums and the burns
of m stard gas. The shipyards swarm again with
new life that will help destroy. The World has
obviously forgotten the lesson it swore to remem-
ber and it appears that the American student,
the man who shoulders the gun, is intent upon
purging his mind of pertinent but uncomfortable
Laughing at the probabilities of war does not
dispel its horrible presence, nor will scoffing at its
proximity deter its approach. We the students, the
youth of America, have done nothing to warrant
demolition but neither have we acted to stop
such a catastrophe. We will watch the German
painter clawing out for "Lost Germany" and the
rest of the World will suddenly discover that it too
has some prodigal territory to herd. But this time
we must not content. ourselves with cursing some
hired master, some caricatured face. It is our
selfish duty to delve into the actual causes of
modern wars, to find what makes them and then to
formulate a plan to break them, finally to act.
As Others See It
Not 'Minor' Sports
(From Whe Daily Illini)
T IS NATURAL that the major sports - foot-
ball, baseball, basketball and track-should

The trees are green,
Soft zephyrs blow,
There is no sign
Of melting snow.
A restlessness
Is in my bones,
I cannot bear
To study tomes.
But I don't need
Such common signs,
To prove that spring
Is here betimes.
There's one small thing
That makes it plain.
Loose pins are being
Hung again.

The poor freshman at Cornell walked up and
down the room. He was plainly perturbed. After
all, he had to get a date for the dance. At last he
hit upon the solution. He rushed to the phone
and dialed the charmed number. He was rewarded
with a busy signal. But he was determined and
at last his patience was rewarded.
"Hello," the melodious soprano voice answered.
The frosh was so excited that he couldn't say a
thing, so he whispered, "hullo." After a few mo-
ments of this brisk and rapid fire conversation,
the yearling dug up enough courage to ask her
the question, "What are you doing this Saturday
"I haven't anything in particular to do," came
the unexpected reply.
"Do you like to dance?"
"Uh, uh."
"Would you like to go to a dance with me Sat-
urday night?"
"I'd love to."
"It's a date then. I'll call for you at nine."
"That's fine. By the way, what's your name?"
"Mine's Bob, what's yours?"

"In the Spring a young man's fancy turns to
love . . . ." If you don't believe it, read this
conversation overheard at the University of
Maryland recently:
"Darling, do you still love me?"
"Oh, Jack!"
"Don't you honney? Not even a little bit?
Aw c'mon, say that you still love me."
"W-ell, y-es, Jack."
"And if I married you would your father
make me a manager in one of his plants, so
that I could support you in style?"
"Yes, Jack."
"And would lie start us off with a nice cash
"Why, certainly Jack."
"And of course your father would settle my
debts so we could start afresh?"
"Of course, Jack."
"Sweetheart, will you marry me?"

A Washington

Hand Int Hand
W ith the First
Day of Spring
The 1935
Junior Girls Play

OLITICAL STAR-GAZERS who so glibly fore-
told not long ago a Roosevelt new party move-
nient with the President leading the way off some-
where to the left, find themselves compelled to
readjust their telescopes. The break-away of such
one-time Roosevelt supporters as Huey Long and
disaffection toward many Roosevelt policies'as too
conservative among liberals of both parties in the
Senate, upset previous calculations.
Now, Mr. Roosevelt has coupled to his anti-hold-
ing company message a definition of his own
attitude toward state socialism that would have
been big news some time ago. It comes at the tail
of the message and was all but ignored in favor
of other things he said. Yet there's meat in it;
and a little display of Roosevelt political slogan-
-coining capacity when he is in a fighting mood.
"I am against private socialism of concentrated
private power as thoroughly as I am against gov-
ernment socialism," the President added. "The
one is equally as dangerous as the other; the
destruction of private socialism is utterly essen-
tial to avoid government socialism."
THERE is great debate off stage in Washington
as to just how serious for administration 1936
campaign prospects the Long bolt, Father Cough-
lin's activities and the Townsend old-age pension
flare might prove to be. Everyone has his own
idea. Republican old guardsters in the Senate
dzew a lot of comfort out of it all.
Such expressions as that of the President about
"government socialism" cannot add to Republican
joy. They look to some observers like a White House
bid for support of that most timorous and numer-
cus company, the small investor. There are lots of
votes there, votes upon which Republican hopes
o= a comeback in '36 largely rely whether old
guardism, as voiced by some Senate Republicans,
nominates platform-making that year or the
"liberalizationists" in Republican ranks have their
T HARDLY can be said that the session to date
has provided any definite material for '36 issue-
making for Roosevelt opponents aside from bud-
getary aspects of the relief problem. The test of
relief policy itself will be what happens under
