Giving The Campus
W1at It Wants.
T HE ALL-CAMPUS SING Wednes-
day evening proved to be E spon-
taneous, rousing success. With no tradition
behind it, as far as the present generation is
concerned, the sing has in a year or two established
itself as one of the going institutions on campus.
Likewise, the Spring Parley has been growing
in the last few years to a position of importance
and respect. With every session, the permanent
oraginzation gains prestige and assurance.
These are not the only strong campus
activities today, by any means, but they are two
that stand out remarkably in a field that is admit-
tedly overcrowded with deadwood. They stand
out particularly because they show that the pres-
ent number of campus activities is no criterion
alone of the adequacy of activities to enlist the
interests of students. They show that there is
always room fo new endeavors-provided they
click.
Just what makes for the popularity of two such
events as the sing and the Parley is what should
vitally concern the officers and members of every
other campus oraginzation trying to struggle
along. It cannot be enthusiastic and competent
leadership alone, although that is one of the most
vital factors.

The question is largely one of discovering what
the campus wants and what the campus lacks.
Neither is easily determined because we are so
in the habit of thinking in terms of existing
arrangements. At first glance it woud certainly
seem that the campus offered every imanginable
form of expression, but the rise of some new star
occasionally disproves that. Sometimes the new
activities are revivals of old ones, often they are
not.
The organization situation on campus is too
complex for one to draw, without considerable
detailed study, any conclusions except possibly one.
That one is that a turnover in college activities is
inevitable, and that to recognize it is to be more
sensible than to stand in its way. If members of
existing organizations, many of them decadent-
at least in their present forms - would forget
pretense and question themselves honestly about
the worwhileness of perpetuating their kind, they
would do the University a distinct service. Then
there could be more room for the coming things
and less time wasted in expecting a miracle.

this week as favoring such political and economic
reforms as:
Reorganization of county government.
The uniameral system for state legislatures.
Appointment of the supreme and appellate
court judges by a committee of the State Bar
Association in conjunction with the governor
and attorney-general.
The appointment of state department heads
on the basis of civil service.
The diversion of gasoline and other special
tax funds for education.
The Ohio students opposed:
State aid to parochial schools and colleges.
Legislation which would make hitch-hiking
illegal.
They did not solve the depression, put Europe
to rights, or inaugurate the world revolution. What
manner of men were these?
As Others See It
Bolshevism Boomerangs
(From the New York Post)
THE NEW YORK AMERICAN has made a per-
fectly horrendous discovery. Most of America's
outstanding educators and college presidents are
bolsheviks.
Included are John Dewey Chancellor Chase of
New York University, President Graham of North
Carolina, President Hutchins of Chicago, Presi-
dent Neilson of Smith, President Wilkins of Ober-
lin, Dean Russell of Teachers College, Columbia;
President Counts of the same school, Dean Withers
of the school of education at New York Univer-
sity, and Robert L. Kelly, secretary of the Associa-
tion of American Colleges.
Now every reader of the Hearst press knows the
bolsheviks have beards, and carry bombs in their
left hands. How have these gentlemen managed
so long to keep their true character hidden while
teaching communism to American youth?
Watch closely. In Moscow, the Hearst press
has discovered, there is a state university. The
state university has a summer session. The sum-
mer session has an Anglo-American section. The
Anglo-American section has an American advisory
organization. The American advisory organiza-
tion is the Institute of International Education.
The Institute of International Education has a
national advisory council.
And these nefarious gentlemen are on that
advisory council.
Could anything be clearer?
Secretly, advertising only in the magazines and
circulating their travel literature through such
obscene travel agencies as Cook's, these educators
have been enticing American students to Moscow-
"Obviously," says the New York American in
a front-page editorial, "for the purposes of making
adept communist propagandists out of them."
Nevertheless, one good plot deserves another,
and now we'll tell one.
Wicked though they are, these educators merely
serve on a council for an organization which
advises the Anglo-American section of the sum-
mer session of a state university in Moscow.
The gentlemen we wish to expose are worse,
worse. They have accepted money from the Soviet
government to give it advice on how to build up
the Soviet Union.
One of them was adviser to the Soviet auto trust
in building the automobile factory at Gorki. He
is a Detroiter whose name is Henry Ford.
Another is Percy H. Johnston, governor of the
Bankers Club and chairman of the board of the
Chemical Bank and Trust Company. He is a
director of the Electric Auto-Lite of Toledo, also
a paid adviser of the Soviet auto trust.
Then there is the chap who, like so many of
these dangerous foreigners, hails from Pittsburgh.
His Koppers Construction Company has taught the
Soviets how to build coke ovens. His name is
Andrew Mellon.
And, lest we forget, one of the concerns which
has been doing business with the Nationalizers of
Women at Moscow is the American Metal Com-
pany.
One of the directors of the American Metal
is Edward H. Clark, representing the interests of
one William Randolph Hearst.
We offer this bigger and better bolshevik plot,
free of charge, to the Hearst press.

Colleges And Cultures
(From the Union Concordiensis)
COLLEGES HAVE BEEN ASSAILED periodically
by educators, social leaders and professional
viewers-with-alarm for being modified country
clubs where young men and women lucky enough
to have money or win scholarships go to spend four
years in ease and comfort, acquiring a polish of
manner and a shallowness of thought which passes
for culture. V
The charge is substantially true. In most college
graduates the only visible result of their college
education is a superficial politeness (from the fra-
ternity house), some facility in subject matter,
(from professors and textbooks), and the ability
to make a little predigested thought go a long way.
This, say the reformers, is what our costly educa-
tional system is coming to! Colleges should instill
Culture in their students! And they sit. down amid
dignified applause.
But the speech makers do not stop to define
Culture very carefully. Both to them and their
audiences, the word brings to- mind old English
letters, with a large, fancy, capital C. Culture
cannot be picturedany more than it can be
taught. Culture is the sum of the activities and
interests of a whole people, and only occasionally
do these activities point in one direction or are
dominated by one interest. The culture of our day
is sprawling and diffuse, not integrated like the
culture of the Italian renaissance or Elizabethan
England. Today we are more interestd in collect-
ing things: Books, pictures, furinture and ideas,
than in creating new things and new ideas. Even
the things which we do create reflect a desire for

"Dear Bud," writes W.T.C., "add this to your
list of campus sketches:
CAMPUS CONVERSATIONS No. 1
The Rushing Week-End
"Hello, Fred. Gee, 's sure swell to see you again.
You're looking fine too. How are things back at
Central? We ought to be winning some tennis
matches now with you playing number one for the
old gang. And I guess you'll go places in the 440
too. What's your time so far? 57.4? Oh, well, I
guess it's still too cold to get going outdoors.
"You know, lots of times I wish I was back at
Central for a while to see the gang again. Swell
bunch of fellows. Any others coming down here?
Jim Hotchkiss said he would if he couldn't pass
college boards.
Have you been around the house yet? We've
really got a nice little place here. Of course,
we need a little new furniture, but the alumni
say they'll give us.that and repaint the house this
summer. That? Oh, that's the bar. Yes, they used
to use it before prohibition, and we just keep it
cleaned up so the place won't look so awful.
"Isn't it a swell day? Spring is the real time
to be in Ann Arbor. The sun shines all the time,
and there's a bunch of swell concerts and plays
that come to town now. Really worthwhile things,
you know. And on week-ends some of the fellows
go canoeing. We had a beer pa - I mean, a pic-
nic -- with the Rho Tau's out at Plymotith last
week, and really had a swell time.
"I'd drive you around town, only the fellows
here at Michigan have agreed it's best not to have
cars. It would take their minds off studies, you
know what I mean, and besides, if every student
had a car, it would be dangerous. So we let the
University regulate that.
"Later on we'll go down and see how the teams
are getting along. One of, the boys here is the
number one pitcher on the baseball team, but he"
won't pitch today. I guess they're saving him for
Northwestern. And Sam was going swell in the
mile until he pulled his leg two weeks ago. We
usually have quite a bunch in athletics.
"Well, how about a couple of rubbers of bridge."
Here's a letter in the morning's mail:
"Dear Bud:
A professor recently made the startling
statement that co-eds are no longer beautiful
but dumb. Michigan's femininity has defie
nitely disproven this theory. They're just
dumb.
* * * *
From one of our well-known Mid-Western uni-
versities comes this story of a professor and apples.
It seems that this particular professor waxed jovial
one fine day and invited his class in pharmacology
"to bring on the apples" and the medic boys took
him very seriously indeed. In fact, they either
begged, borrowed, or stole a half bushel of apples
and parked them on his desk. Came the morrow.
The one-time jovial professor Went for the apples
in a big way, but didn't particularly for the note
that was pinned to a bit of flannel cloth which
said: "Polish your own apples."

Off The Record

By SIGRID ARNE
WASHINGTON, May 10.
ILAS STRAWN of Chicago, in discussing the
problems of the North and the South while in
Washington, told the story of a friend of his who

speeches which

visited a small Georgia farm.
The man noticed so many
children about the place he
asked the farmer how many
children he had.
"Seventeen," said the
farmer.
"And all good Democrats,
I suppose?"
"All but John," said the
farmer, "he's took up read-
ing."
Rep. Josh Lee of Okla-
homa makes a few
are undecorated by some epi-

gram. One of his recent ones was:
"The difference between the Indian and the
white man is this: The Indian scalps his
enemies, but the white man skins his friend."
TTORNEY-GENERAL Homer S. Cummings,
whose department must spend some time wor-
rying about the Supreme Court decisions, sallied
forth to see a baseball game between the NRA
team and the team in the justice department.
Cumming's nine lost by a 5 to 4 score.
"What did you think of the game?" he was
asked.
His eyes twinkled.
"Well," he said, "it isn't the first time I have
heard a 5 to 4 decision, you know."
Secretary Frances Perkins, of labor, has lived
in New York City so long she says she lies
awake most of the night, when she visits a
farm, just "listening to the quiet."
MRS. FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT not only
laughed at the story told about her at a lunch-
eon, but gave permission for it to be told.

retary of the navy some "ladies of the Senate"
