NDIANA UNIVERSITY, facing the
same library situation as Michigan,
has changed its policy to provide adequate week-
end service for its students.
After week-end hours had been seriously cur-
tailed for a period of more than a year, sufficient
pressure was brought to cause the University Board
of Trustees to restore full time schedules. The
hours, from 2 to 10 p.m. Sundays and 7:45 a.m.
.to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, now compare
favorably with those at other Big Ten schools
and rank considerably ahead of those here.
At Indiana it was felt that the limited number of
hours had a direct connection with a notable de-
crease in University scholarship, especially at a
time when so many students are employed in part-
time work. And the Indiana trustees certainly did
well to refrain from discouraging any flicker of ag-
gressive student interest in scholastic matters.
IAs Others See It
'(From The Harvard Crimson)
THAT THE LIBERAL CLUB is seriously con-
sidering preparing a petition to send to Wash-
ington advocating legislation on vital topics of the
day indicates its members are in danger of losing
their sense of humor. It is all very well to discuss
momentous problems in an open forum, and the
practice of having prominent men speak words
of wisdom on the world and its problems is com-
mendable; but the idea of a group of semi-intel-
lectual college students taking themselves seriously
enough to think they are capable of doing Con-
gress's work is preposterous.
Foreign policy, money, banking, public' finance,
commerce and regulation of industry, social se-
curity and labor, government personnel - these
are the subjects to be covered in the Liberal Clubs'
petition to Congress. Granted the questions are
vital, granted the excellence of the interest shown
by college students, granted the high-mindedness
that inspires their action, granted the need for ex-
perience in the practical side of political theory
and governmental workings - but what, in the
name of all that is muddle-headed, what business
has the Harvard Liberal Club interfering in Con-
gressional legislation? Isn't it muddled enough
A university is an institution for detached, im-
partial study of the arts alxd the sciences, contem-
porary and modern. Assuredly, the art of govern-
went belongs on the roster of any modern college
as a subject for careful research and examination.
But it is not the province of the university, nor is
it the province of students, to involve themselves
in governmental affairs, while they are students,
preisely because they will inevitably lose the per-
spective which is essential to profitable study.
The Minnesota Daily suggests that textbooks
be sold at two prices, one for cloth-bound editions
and the other for paper covers. But what to do
when one is already paying two prices?
"Michigan Has 12 Graduates in Congress" -
Headline. And the University doesn't even try to
keep it quiet.
The University was originally known as the
Catholepistemiad of Michigan. That must have
made a swell fight locomotive.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FRATERNITY
3:30 a.m.: "No, I tell you Harry went to bed
hours ago, and I'm not going to gt him up
just to answer your silly questions."
8:00 a.m.: "Hello, Mr. Gooflah? --This is
the steward. Please send me up four dozen
cranges, 25 pounds of sugar, a sack of flour.
And say, those steaks that you send me yester-
day were terrible. What did you have to do -
use a buzz saw on the cow?"
10:20 a.m.: "Is that you Emmaline? This is
cf bed? How do you feel after last night?
Net as bad as I do, I hope!"
10:30 a.m.: "Is that you Emmaline? This is
Mamie. I thought I'd call you up before I have
to get lunch ready for the boys. Did you hear
how Lizzie's husband lost all his money in a

aside a dozen of the hottest records for me
that you have in stock. Yeah, we're having a
Vic dance this week-end. I'll be down for them
2:00 p.m.: "Hello, Jim, the hell with that ec
lecture this afternoon. Let's go to a show in-
4:15 p.m.: "I'm sorry but Jack isn't here
now. You can get in touch with him at the
Daily office though. Oh, you're calling from
7:20 p.m.: "What pictures are you showing
tonight? Uh, uh, is there anything better at
8:30 p.m.: "No, for the last time, there is no
John Smith living here."
10:00 p.m.: "Hello, - why, Dad - has any-
thing happened? Ohh, is that all? Sure I'm
all right. There just hasn't been anything to
write about. How's mother? And say, Dad,
while I think of it, will you send me a check
for $50, I'm running short."
10:30 p.m.: "Operator I've been calling room
604 for two hours and all you say is I'm
trying to get her!' I know she's in - will you
please ring her again?"
10:45 p.m.: "Hello, darling, I've missed you
all day. Did you get tired at the League tea?
How about going to the Union with me Friday
night? Fine! Do you know I love you, dear.
Hey, you guys, will you please get off this
11:30: "No, I haven't studied for the blue-
book. I believe I'll take the make-up. I just
couldn't get around to it tonight. You know
it's cold -- well lots of luck, I'm going to bed."

EYE TO EY E
WITH THE BETTER BUY
W ISE BUYING these days doesn't, necessarily,
mean extensive and tortuous shopping tours.
Wise shopping, yes, but NOT extensive.
The Michigan Daily Ads offer you all the best buys
in the things you need and want . . . and you don't
have to move out of your house to know immediately
where they are!
Thousands of people have taken advantage of this
easy and accurate way of shopping. They like it.
They're still doing it. Be wise and SEE the better
buys each day in the ads of
Of Music. . .
T HE INTERIM between the choral
Union concerts and the May Fes-
tival should be a good time to take stock of the
status of music appreciation in Ann Arbor.
In view of the fine programs furnished regularly
here by the School of Music, there are scarcely
the number of true music lovers one might expect.
Many people go to the concerts and enjoy them;
others go to the concerts and are bored; still others
do not go to the concert and consider "highbrow"
- whatever that may mean - those that do.
The fundamental difficulty is probably the lack
of realization that music is something that must
be studied in order to be appreciated. Many say
they do not see why they should expend effort
in order to enjoy music, but the same persons will
go out and swing a golf club all day, practicing
to take a point from their score, and will let the
world.know how much they enjoy golf when they
Many symphonies must be heard over and over
again before they are appreciated and enjoyed, but
the thrill that comes when one is finally mastered
is well worth the task. If students at the University
can learn that music offers as much pleasure as
golf or bridge - perhaps much more - and is no
harder to learn, they will have gained a bit of
knowledge that should prove as valuable to them
as anything set forth in the curriculum.
Let's Play In
Our Own Waters*. .
PRESENT NAVAL PLANS of the
United States call for the playing of
war "games" from May 3 to June 10 over an area
of more than 5,000,000 square miles in Pacific
waters. The "games," which are seemingly to be
interpreted as a display of naval might for the
benefit of the Japanese in particular, and for
sundry other powers, are to involve 177 surface
ships and 477 airplanes. This aggregation, 196
church leaders who petitioned President Roosevelt
inform us, is "the largest and most powerful ar-
mada ever assembled under a single command in
the world's naval history."
The church. leaders, who ask the President' to
change the location of the summer "games," state
squarely enough that "the launching of such a
program, at such a time, can not but have the
effect of making more tense and difficult our
relations with Japan."
The Meeting Place of Values and Economy
Stein Indicts The Newspapers
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following article by Miss
Stein was written especially for the St. Louis Post-
Dispatch and a group of other American newspapers.
In condensing it, the copyreader has made every ef-
fort to preserve the logical argument which he claims
to have discovered in all except the last paragraph
by his fourth or fifth reading.

WHAT DO THEY WANT to know in the news-
papers that is what does anybody want to
know just anybody and do they want to know what
they do want to know or do they only think so
only thing they want to know what they do want to
know from the newspapers because if they do if
they only think so then they do get what they
want. What they want or think they want to know
what they want in the newspapers is to know every
day what happened the day before and so get the
feeling that it has happened on that day the same
bay and not the day before. That is what the
American newspaper is supposed to do to make it be
as if they the newspapers had it to do that is to
make the things that happened yesterday happen
Some country newspapers, by country I mean
twenty or thirty thousand inhabitants in a city, do
make yesterdays news be todays, because every-
body know everybody and so they the newspapers
make yesterdays or last weeks news sound like
Now the big newspaper the big city newspaper
cannot do that, they cannot do that unless some-
thing is most terribly exciting and by terribly
exciting it can only be terribly exciting if somebody
is very litle that is as exciting as that that has
anybody in it who is as exciting as that so most
of the news the newspaper prints is the news of
yesterday and not the news of today and so the
newspaper does not do what it says it does, it does
not tell the news of today.
And what is the difference well the difference is
that it is a mistake. If the newspaper says that it
is printing yesterday news as if it were the news
of today then they are they really are a newspaper
otherwise they are not.
There are some hang overs, some rather sweet
really sweet hang overs and they are rather touch-
ing these sweet hang overs. They are mostly re-
Now what I mean by hang overs from the yellow
press day is this the reporters always think they
bombard you with questions but they do not, they
mostly talk a little and answer questions and you
talk a little a good deal and more or less do not
answer questions. But as I say there was the yellow
press and so there is the violence of the yellow
press words but as I say the metropolitian news-
paper must be soothing it must be yesterdays news,
arid so no matter how pleasant and gentle and
pleasant any reporter is he must have the emo-
tion of the violence that was once the yellow
press, they still have the machinery of it, the head-
lines the bombarding with questions, but actually
what they want is a pleasant conversation these re-
porters and then to write down the same general
thing that has always written down about the one
