Model League As
A Peace Factor.. .
W HEN DELEGATES from the various
colleges in Michigan convene here
Friday for the eighth annual Assembly of the
Model League of Nations it will not be a collegiate
gathering in the accepted meaning of the term
on this campus. There will be none of the stir
which attends the arrival of a visiting football
team-none of the bustle which ushers in a
week-end of important social events.
-Iwever the League is an activity which is truly
collegiate in the best sense of the word, in the
sense that it gives fullest scope and opportunity
to college studepLr to take advantage of their
college education It is more than a gathering of
students who meet to discuss their various prob-
lems, though it provides this opportunity, too.
The students who will meet here will come as
representatives of the several foreign countries
having seats in the League. Before they come they
will have to familiarize themselves with the prob-
lems, both international and domestic, of the na-
tions which they represent, and they will come
together to discuss them as they would in the As-
sembly of the League.
Such a convention will ue a more effective anti-
war movement than any number of effigy-burning
demonstrations, promoting, as it is bound to do,
international understanding. With knowledge

concerning the problems of other nations there
will- come sympathy with them and familiarity
with the questions before the League will bring
an appreciation of the difficulties which that or-
ganization faces.
Such a salutary influence should not be con-
fined only to those who are delegates to the League
or who are taking an active part in its organiza-
tion. There is a constructive force here to be
brought to bear upon the campus as a whole, which
may benefit by, though not participating in, the
discussions. Meetings of the Model League are
thrown open to the public, and to students of the
University in particular. It remains to be seen how
many of the latter will take advantage of the
opportunity.
Michigan's Annals
Receive Attention ...
A N EXCEPTIONALLY noteworthy

the University could be found for a big Michigan
history museum.
At present Michigan historical material is strewn
all over the state. Besides small collections in
nearly every hamlet and those belpnging to indi-
viduals, there is the large collection in the State
Historical Commission's Library at Lansing, the
Burton Collection in the Detroit Public Library,
the collection of the Bay City Public Library, and
the collection of the Grand Rapids Public Library.
There has been no attempt to correlate the ma-
terial in these different spots. Surely University
men are best fitted to attempt this task, and the
University is the logical place for the accumulation
of the material.
And even if the history department does not go
beyond its present plans, the main purpose of
which is to locate Michigan historical material for
the purpose of research, it will be doing a signal
task; one which is difficult and one which will need
the cooperation of all if it is to be completed.
Prof. Lewis G. Vandervelde deserves credit and
praise for taking the lead in the undertaking.
It should be noted that the University of Mich-
igan is not alone in this endeavor. Other uni-
versities in our neighboring states have been doing
it for some time, and it was this fact that in part
influenced our own history department.
The historical past of the State of Michigan is
far richer than most of us realize. Having been
under the Spanish, French and British flags, hav-
ing been long part of the American frontier, lead-
ing the nation in industry and commerce, the story
of the rise of Michigan is as interesting as, if not
more so, than that of any other state. For nearly'
three centuries an intense drama of life has been
unfoldedl in this peninsula country of the Great
Lakes. Unless we want that drama to die, unchron-
icles and unremembered, we must act to preserve
it.
Surely the inscription on the top of the William
L. Clements Library, "In Darkness Dwells the
People Which Knows Its Annals Not," has a direct
bearing in Michigan today.
As Others See It
The Pedagogic Bugbear

What are college students afraid of? A psychol-
ogy professor at Temple University asked his class
to hand in (unsigned) a list of the things that
scared them.
Here is what the men in the class are afraid
of: the future . . . getting hit on the mouth ..
the next five or 10 years . . . Fascist dictatorship
. . . driving with a woman driver . . . eating too
much . . . falling in love prematurely . . . getting
into a fight . . . getting a taller girl on a blind
date . . . mature policemen . . . bumblebees...
flunking physics . . . getting married .. . war and
disease . .. field rats and snakes . . . being alone
in deep water . . . kissing a girl!
The girls also had their own set. of peculiar fears,
among them: Being alone in the dark, or in a
strange place . . . coming home after 10 p.m... .
snakes, bulls and lunatics . . . tough, suspicious
looking characters . . . roller coasters . . . rats and
mice . . . centipedes in old walls . . . wasps, black
cats, hornets and bumblebees ... Sin . .. being held
too tightly!

Add these to your list of collegiate definitions,
contributed by B.O.C.:
Concentration: Process of centering thoughts on
blonde in front seat ahead; or method of impress-
ing rushee, as "you mugs concentrate on so-and-so
- he's about ready to break down."
Blind Date: Girl engaged as dancing partner
at late date, who usually turns out to be not only
blind, but also deaf, dumb, and knockneed.
Study: Obs.
Phi Beta Kappa: Scholastic honorary, whose
members are paid to engage in long-winded argu-
ments with professors two minutes before class
ends.
Class: What the girl-of-the-moment has.
University: Interesting collection of buildings
and scenery lying between the fraternities and
the beer drinkery.

Here's an item coming from the colwnns of the
Ohio State Lantern:
"The very brave young man who takes his
girl out on a Sunday night with 97 cents or some
such restraining sum in his pocket, and has her
order first so he will know what he can afford for
himself would probably have a definite reaction
if he knew that rattling in her purse was a sum
three times his own.
"This is nodiatribe on a current system, but a
plea for the widespread adoption of the "dutch-
treat" plan. Surveys have shown consistently
that co-eds have more money than eds. Other
things being equal, why should all the burden of
the expense restwith the male?
"In most cases, the girl enjoys the company
of her escort or she would not go out with him.
She derives as much pleasure from a social en-
gagement as he does. It seems only fair that she
shares the expense."
A kiss, says a professor at Wake Forest Col-
lege, is a symbol of pure affection, or a blister
of burning passion, or a smoke screen of design.

COL LEG ATE
OBSERVER
By BUD BERNARD

(From the Purdue Exponent)
THE SEDENTARY, life of the professor has been
often condemned. He is, according to many,
out of touch with things that really matter, ignor-
ant of life, and diffused with cobwebby notions.
Bernard Shaw summed up this attitude when he
classified humanity into two groups - those that
do and those that teach.
The thought has just come to us, after four
years, that perhaps the professor is not entirely
to blame. Consider the demoralizing effect of
teaching, year after year, class after class, stu-
dents who are intellectually unconscious.
A young instructor, when he first takes up his
pedagogic duties, is probably as enthusiastic as any
young engineer starting to build highways from
Kokomo to Lafayette. But we can imagine that
many years of trying to drum knowledge into
skulls that can never understand would be enough
to make a professor retire into a shell, become
overly sarcastic and slough off into the so-called
sedentary state.
In the first place, the man who enters the teach-
ing field is more conscious of his surroundings,
of what is going on around him, and what is
happening to other people. Then he goes to class
day after day, tries to "put out" information that
he knows isn't being understood, and easily be-
comes "pedagogic." In the more definite subjects
(math., science, etc.), his position is not so hard,
but it takes a "rare good man" to continue
teaching with some degree of enthusiasm in a sub-
ject such as English,
It is perhaps fortunate to be dumb and un-
conscious, for then the problem of what this thing
called life is all about never presents itself, but
it is unfortunate when such people become classi-
fied as students and plague an instructor.
The majority of teachers expect some other re-
ward besides a salary. There is a satisfaction
from leading able minds in the right direction,
from knowing that the knowledge being interpret-
ed is comprehended. When plodding students
come to class and sit day after day and learrr only
the surface essentials that will pass them, it is no
small wonder that a professor may become so
discouraged that he will pronounce Purdue stu-
dents the most unconscious in the Middle West.
Collegiate Cynicism
(From the Michigan State News)
TRUE CYNICISM, according to Abbe Ernest
Dimmet, author of the "Art of Thinking"
and other philosophical works, is merely self-con-
fidence, slightly tainted by conceit or by the con-
viction that no one is better than one's self. Col-
legiate cynicism, on the other hand, is usually
nothing more than an affected blase attitude mixed
with a forced pessimism. In outside circles it is of
no avail in attaining success, but on the campus
it becomes a halo over the youthful cynic's head,
a mark of distinction among students who are
carefree, indolent or prosaicly earnest.
The collegiate man-of-the-world is a common
sight. He is usually found haunting beer gardens
or coke parlors, where he sits dully for hours,
peering up sourly through cigaret smoke at pass-
ersby. In classes he listens sullenly, showing bore-
dom and usually pretending to be partially asleep.
He prides himself on his record of cuts, flunks
and arguments with professors. If possible, he
dresses meticulously with taste bordering on the
bizarre. In short, he is a thoroughly experienced
lad who has tasted everything that life has to
offer and decided that it is hardly worth living.
But circumstances change with graduation --if
he gets that far. Away from the sheltered life
of the campus he finds that a man must produce
in order to share, that one must fight for things
worth while. He discovers that employers have
a hearty contempt for people who are too proud
to work -there are too many others who are will-

What! Swimming Suits
at thsieof the Season?

A Washington
BYSTANDER

By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, April 30.
A LOT OF FOLKS hereabouts would like to see
a who's who of Herbert Hoover's "dozen good
Republicans who would be worthy candidates" for
the presidency next year.
There are certainly more than a dozen being
talked about more or less. The negative side of
the suggested Hoover list perhaps would be more
interesting than the positive. Who of the aspir-
ants would the titular party leader regard as un-
worthy of the honor?
As to who heads the list in Mr. Hoover's mind,
-most Washington onlookers have only two guesses.
If it isn't "the chief" himself, it must be Ogden
Mills, they hold. They can find nothing in Mr.
Hoover's writings or sayings on public questions
since his self-imposed period of silence after his
retirement from the White House ended, to sug-
gest anyone other than Mills, provided, of cotirse,
Mr. Hoover is not definitely seeking a come-
back on his own account.
WITH TWO recent transcontinental trips to his
credit, both of which obviously were not con-
fined to the personal business that took him to
New York, the former president could not be
surprised at the outbreak of the Hoover '36 talk he
precipitated. His conferences coming and going
both times had a decidedly political aspect. His
parrying of questions as to his own political plans
for next year were so studiedly non-committal as
to invite the inference that he had hopes about
business conditions.
For example, his dozen good Republicans re-
mark was his reply to a direct question as to
vwhether he himself might be a candidate. He
also represented himself'as "trying to get informa-
tion, not give it," about business conditions.
*' * **
BY MARCH, '33, when he left office, the economic
situation had changed, the banking panic was
on. Mr. Hoover retired to silence. And the evi-
dences of the '34 congressional election results
did not indicate that any great progress toward
made.
Assuming that Hoover was resolved never to run
for nuhlic office apin, he would he sacrificing
