NIGHT EDITOR: COURTNEY A. EVANS ^

tion paid by outside organizations under the as-
sumption that the students attend Michigan to
agitate, they should be expelled. The University's
reputation is too deeply engrained upon American
tradition to be endangered by an insignificant
group of trouble makers.
But -_ and this is a very important but -every
American citizen has the right to think and say
what he pleases on any subject he desires, providing
always that he does not create a public disturb-
ance. This is fundamental Americanism; 100 per
cent Americanism, in fact. Authority which pun-
ishes the expression of opinion with which it does
not agree is not American; it is Russian.
It is important, therefore, that cases requiring
discipline require it on overt acts damaging to the
University and not on the mere expression of opin-
ons which may be disagreeable to the majority of
us.
Student Government
Finale: . .
T HE NEW PLAN for a men's student
government, as submitted by the
Undergraduate Council and approved by the Uni-
versity Committee on Student Affairs, is a good
plan. It is the result of an extensive and impar-
tial survey of student opinion conducted by the
Council. It combines the system of democratic
election with the present system of automatically
appointed offices. It gives no one of the campus
extra-curricular activities a disproportionate and
comparatively unfair representation. And it places
in the hands of no one group a possible power
over other self-respecting campus organizations.
It took a very long time to get this plan. The
entire affair started at the beginning of the first
semester, and it involved students, organizations,
faculty men and members of the administration in
a grand and sometimes highly hilarious scramble.
The general student body will never know the
amazing political crimes committed in its name,
but those of us involved, day after day, week after
week, month after month, will look back upon
the merry farce with wonder and-now that spring
is here - comradely amusement.
What student government at Michigan needs is
tradition, background. In order to have a respect-
ed and effective government it is first necessary to
have a stable government. A government which
changes each year, whenever some small group
becomes convinced that it sees a new mission in
life, can be nothing but a weak government. If
there is one thing we should have learned by now
it is that student government should be given a
chance to settle. The Daily hopes the new men's
council will manage to get through a respectable
number of years without someone endeavoring to
revolutionize the world.

COL LEG lATE
OBSERVER
By BUD BERNARD
We clipped this from the columns of Editor and
Publisher:
GET THAT STORY
Be accurate! was the
City Editor's favorite maxim.
So why should he have been so
Unreasonably annoyed when the sob sister,
Trying to obey his instructions,
Wrote, in perfect truth:
"Following their marriage ceremony,
Performed today in Agues Caliente,
Mr. and Mrs. Film Idol,
The former Miss Maude Lynn,
Will continue to make their home
At his house in Beverly Hills
Where they have been living
For the past year."
Stephen Leacock says that he took to teaching
because it was "the only trade that neither needed
experience or intellect." When he received his
Ph.D. he said, "The meaning of this degree is that
the recipient of instruction is examined for the
last time in his life, and is pronounced completely
full. After this no new ideas can be imparted to
him."
ORIGIN UNKNOWN, BUT WE LIKED THEM
Hearst in war, Hearst in peace,
Hearst in every news release.
Spreads his hate and desolation
To improve his circulation.

The Oklahoma Daily O'Collegian suggests a few
changes for our modern American universities.
1. Give academic freedom to students as well as
professors.
2. Cut out ruthlessly the loafers from among
the students and the faculty, even though some of
them are sons of high-priced faculty.
3. Do away with the execrable injustice of out-
grown marking systems and their regimentation of
mediocrity.
4. Build buildings, that look more like work-
shops and less like cathedrals, and put the money
into faculty salaries. Cut out the monumental
piles. The place for such is in the cemetery.
5. Take the Ph.D. degree off its pedestal. The
lure of pure intellectualism is gone, and the col-
leges may as well accept the fact.
6. Pay the faculty "big shots" what they are
worth. Keep them on the campus at any cost.
* **
A novel idea to prevent students from entering
class late was evolved by a professor at N.Y.U.
Annoyed by the interruptions of late comers, he
put a stop to their tardy arrivals by placing a large
and vicious police dog outside the classroom door
and those who arrived late were greeted by snarls
and lunges discouraging entrance.

As Others See It

Emotionalisn

The Baldwin
Bill 0

T HE BALDWIN BILL requiring all
teachers in Michigan educational
institutions to take an oath of allegiance to the
national and state constitutions is amusing for aj
number of reasons. First, it indicates that the Leg-
islature honestly does believe there are anti-Amer-
icans teaching in Michigan educational institu-
tions. Secondly, it assumes that if there are men
on these faculties interested' in overthrowing the
United States government they will refuse to take
the oath, get fired, and go to Russia. Third, it
requires teachers to take an oath of allegiance to a
state constitution which the legislators themselves
persistently refuse to support.
Article 5, Section 4 of the state constitution
says
At the session in 1913 and each tenth year
thereafter, the Legislature shall by law rear-
range the senatorial districts and apportion
anew the representatives among the counties
and districts according to the number of in-
habitants, using as a basis for each appor-
tionment the last preceding United States
census of this state, Each apportionment so
made, and the division of any county into rep-
resentative districts by its board of supervisors,
made thereunder, shall not be altered until
the tenth year thereafter.
The State Legislature has not reapportioned .its
seats since. It should have had such a reap-
portionment in 1933. For two years it has flag-
rantly violated the constitution which it now in-
sists teachers must swear allegiance to. 'We hope
that in pointing this out to the Legislature we
are not guilty of subversive propaganda.
No American .objects to taking an oath of al-
legiance to the American constitution. It is a good
constitution. With those of England and France,
it stands as a democratic bulwark of humanity
against the desolate creeds of fascism and com-
munism. The bill, therefore, will cause no em-
barrassment to the Michigan faculty and if it is
extended to students it will cause them no em-
barrassment either... The services of this insti-
tution and those who compose its faculty to the
state are so very obvious that it is, we think, rather
annoying- but nothing more than annoying -
that the Legislature should believe such a bill desir-
able or necessary.

To the Editor:
If the present social situation is perfect, it is
unique in human experience. As long as crime,
insecurity and poverty exist, there is a challenge to
thinking people. The means for improvement is
a matter of argument, and it is not my inten-
tion to discuss the various theories. However, one
aspect of social movement has lately come to my
attention. I refer to the recent anti-pacifist dem-
onstrations in Lansing. A characteristic of both
uicidents was a mob-an emotionally charged
crowd. In one instance they were moved to dump
a speaker into a river, and in the other, they
raised their right arms to pled'ge something which
five years from now they may have no intention
of keeping. Where there is emotion and excite-
ment, sound reasoning is a stranger.
There was a time when the ship of state was
little more than a rowboat, and staunch active
individuals were at a premium. Since that time
our boat has become a mammoth ship. The ma-
chinery is installed, and oarsmen are not needed
so much as men with brains. The future of the
nation depends on the educated people, people who
are trained to think. It is a matter of common
experience that deep thought is not born where
there is shouting and waving of arms.
The situation that faces us now is a matter that
calls for firm convictions, not hastily made pledges
or threats that take the form of throwing a parson
into the stream. The common criticism of Long,
Hearst, Hitler, Coughlin, and others is that they
yell names, and make an appeal to the emotions.
It is easily shown that they seldom make a hard
reasoned point. Those who are the first to join
demonstrations are generally the first to follow
the biggest band, and cheer lynchings and other
mob actions. It is necessary that people should
gather and talk things over, but emotionalism of
all sorts should be discouraged on the ground that
it is not conducive to reflection.
-Ralph A. Hall.

What Kind Of Parents?
(From The Syracuse Daily Orange)
COLLEGE WOMEN in socially restrictive insti-
tutions, such as Syracuse, are on their own so
seldom that they make the most of every oppor-
tunity. This observation was made by a woman
who has been associated with several campuses,
most recently Syracuse. The "meddling paternal-
ism" of most of our American colleges "implies that
the parents are doing an exceedingly poor job at
home."
College administrators in answer to that last re-
mark, probably will say -parents are doing a bad
job. To which our reply is - you're educating the
parents of tomorrow. What kind of a job are you
doing?
To over-simplify the matter, let's say that college
students have three kinds of parents:
1. Wise ones, who have inculcated in their chil-
dren standards of good taste and criteria of sanity
with little or no restriction in their daily living.
2. Foolish ones who have allowed their chil-
dren to have everything they want and to do
anything they like, without giving them the sense
of values which would allow them to use their
privileges wisely.
3. Foolish ones, who have so guided, or mis-
guided, the steps of their children that they are un-
able to walk alone; who have limited, restricted,
and "held down" their children until they inevi-
tably "break loose" at the first opportunity.
Students from the first group of homes do not
need to be told when to come in at night; students
from the second group being presented suddenly
with restrictions which they have never experi-
enced, and being without the standards of values
which might enable them to accept the situation
or to oppose it intelligently and openly, resort
to underhand methods of evading the rules or ruin
their college life in maladjustment to its social
set-up; students from the third group being un-
,ble to walk alone, perhaps need to be educated in
adulthood.
Syracuse University stands "in loco parentis" to
the students who matriculate here. Quite arbi-
trarily, university officials have chosen the thirdj
type of parent as their model. They have chosen
to exercise a control from which their children
are wont to "break loose" at the first opportunity.
Restricted as they are, the women students in a
college with compulsory curfew graduate without
having an opportunity to develop the maturity of
judgment which their later life will require.
The women whom Syracuse is so carefully nur-
turing will in a few years be bringing up the next'
generation of college students. What kind of par-
ents will they make?

Questions

OMETHING like orchestral playing is
this running of ships across the ocean-a
special aptitude for ensemble work required of
all members ... You find it on German Ships:
Every steward, seaman, officer born to a part, f ;
trained by years in working in unison. Ships
and equipment as fine as can be made, kept in
perfect order. And a tradition that has its
hand on every shoulder, day and night.

To the Editor:
In view of the intense pacifist activities, I should
like to ask its proponents a few questions.
1. What do you think of Russia's army of nearly
1,000,000 soldiers?
2. What do you think would happen to you if
you staged a demonstration in Moscow in which
you declared that under no conditions would
you support the soviet government in any war?
3. What would yob do if this nation were at-
tacked by a foreign enemy with your family and
friends and yourself open to the attacks of an army
set upon murder and less delicate things?
