igan Alumni Clubs throughout the state. The
completion of satisfactory work during one year
makes the holders of these scholarships eligible to
have them continued from year to year.
Most recognitions are more limited in their
scope. The late Levi L. Barbour, alumnus and
former regent, established a fund of $600,000 to
provide schooling at the University for young
women from Oriental countries; since 1932, five
scholarships have been available to American In-
dian students; one loan fund provides that prefer-
ence be given graduates of the Marquette High
School, another for preference to those from Al-
legan County.
But what can only be hinted at in such a short
space as this is set forth in quite an enlightening
manner in the 40 pages of "Fellowships, etc." We
just hope the supply of copies at the business
office holds out in the face of the frenzied demand
that is sure to come for knowledge in a matter
hitherto largely kept from the light of day.




(From the U. of Ala. Crimson-White)
A FEW WEEKS AGO the New York Post ran
a puzzle which is still causing many a head-
ache in America's metropolis. It was:
The king wished to choose the wisest man in
his country as Premier. To do so, he told three
of the wisest: "I'm going to blindfold you and paint
circles in red or blue on your foreheads. When
the bandages are removed, if you see a red circle
anywhere, raise your right hand. When you
have figured out the color of your own circle, lower
the hand and the first to do that will be my pre-
mier." The King then blindfolded them, painted
three red circles, allowed them to see again,
watched the hands go up, and then saw the hand
of Mr. Z descend. How did Mr. Z know his circle
was red?
It took Walter Lippman 20 minutes to find
the answer; Harry Nason, Post managing editor,
took six. One member of the Crimson-White
staff solved it in 15 minutes, another in 17. The
rest are still working on it.

The Daily Texan, official publication of the
University of Texas, asks the question - What can
the university professor profess? The following
three answers were given: (1) He may refrain
from saying anything that he believes, in which
case he is worthless. (2) He may honestly and
frankly state his conclusions on the problems he
has studied, and win the disapproval of the pseudo-
patriots. (3) He may state only part of his con-
clusions (those which will offend none of the con-
trolling interests in society) which is misrepre-
sentation and dishonesty.
The newest way to provide oneself with a lib-
eral education and at the same stroke bring in
some cold cash seems to be the now-flourishing
business of campus ghost-writing.
Rather complete revelations of the actual tech-
nique of this mysterious profession have been pub-
lished at Columbia University. One of the best
in the business explained that he turns out themes
and term papers day after day for classmates and
has even developed a large mail-order business
from other colleges. He charges three dollars for
2,000 words, five to six dollars for 3,000 words, and
12 dollars for 10,000 words, providing the research
is not too great.
Furthermore his confidence in his writing ability
is so strong that for a small additional cost he
will guarantee an 'A' grade or money back.
Tho retort apropos. It seems as though a
student attending a dance at the University
of Maryland found himself stepping on the
train of the dress of the prom queen. She
turned around angrily. Just as she was about
to speak he had the presence of mind to re-
mark. "Though I may not have the power
to draw an angel from the. skies, I have
pinned one to the earth."
She excused him.
A tailor of the University of Pennsylvania cam-
pus tells the following story. "I have had lots of
dumb requests from people, but the best one came
out xjhen a student entered with a suit of blue
serge on his arm, and after scanning the price list
asked me how much it would cost to have the suit
dyed. I told him the price and then asked what
color he wanted.
"His reply almost knocked me silly. He seemed
to muse for a minute and then said, "Make it
brown with a pin stripe."
The Oklahoma Daily delves into Sally Rand's
past and reveals the fact that the young lady is a
Kappa. Sally herself in a recent interview said
that the fans she uses cost $250 and furthermore
she wishes to change the public's opinion of her.

(From the Cornell Daily Sun)
WHEN THE IDEA of setting aside one week-end
for the the entertainment of prospective fresh-
men was first conceived last year, it was accepted
with a certain degree of skepticism, but the amaz-
ing and unexpected success of that first Cornell
Day has firmly established it as a permanent
annual institution in the University.
With the continued cooperation of the alumni,
the university and the fraternities, Cornell Day
will become invaluable in raising the caliber of the
entering students. Cornell, we feel, has some-
thing unique and unparalleled to offer. It is on
this assumption that it is believed that visiting
high school and preparatory students will be spon'
taneously influenced in choosing this university for
their alma mater after living a week-end in the
academic and social atmosphere of Cornell andj
amid, itsbeauty and natural splendor.
The alumni have been overwhelmed with appli-
cants to attend this second Cornell Day, and by
the unpleasant task of elimination, they have
reduced the number of visiting sub-freshmen to
some 600. These men must all be housed in the
various fraternities, all of whom have shown every
interest to cooperate whole-heartedly. They have
each been allotted a certain quota, but if even
then it 'is found that accommodations are not
ample for all, these quotas must be raised. Pos-
sibly these fraternities will be taxed to the discom-
fiture of the regular men living in the houses, but
the success of the whole program for Cornell Day
depends on the accommodation and entertain-
ment of each and every sub-freshman, and it is
imperative that the fraternities cooperate to the
full in accomplishing the purpose of this special
Also there are bound to arise complications and
petty jealousies in the assignment of these many
guests. Some house will undoubtedly be grieved in
not receiving the caliber of sub-freshmen it may
desire. If any such injustice may be felt, at least
such fraternities must recognize that it is entirely
accidental and inevitable under such a complex
and difficult organization. They can at least be as-
sured that in doing their part, both they and the
university will be the ultimate gainer for a suc-
cessful Cornell Day.

Supreme Court's conflicting views on consti-
tionality of the Railroad Retirement Act served
only to accentuate the breach
in fundamental conceptions of
the American system of gov-
;- That onlookers, official and
unofficial, were surprised at
the shift of Justice Roberts
away from the "liberal" wing
that heretofore has dominated
the court, is putting it mildly.
But what was far more sur-
prising and disturbing, even
to the minority justices for
whom Chief Justice Hughes
F v spoke, was the extent to which
the majority opinion went in holding not only the
retirement bill itself, but any social legislation of
that sort, beyond the constitutional powers of
1{ARELY has the high court so reached out to
give its opinions effect far beyond the limits
of the case at bar. It is customary for important
courts, including the Supreme Court, to go in the
other direction, to narrow rather than widen the
effect of their action.
The Roberts' opinion is unique for its sweeping
restrictions on Federal regulatory powers under the
commerce clause of the Constitution. It was that
point upon which Mr. Hughes and his dissenting
colleagues fastened. It is that point around which
may revolve efforts to change the traditional Amer-
ican system. It is that point which holds a chal-
lenge to the whole New Deal conception of the
Constitution as flexible enough to permit far-
reaching social and economic reforms.
That is "the gravest aspect" of the Roberts'
opinion, the chief justice said. It would deny Con-
gress authority to enact even a perfect pension
New Deal measure. While its purposes were
applauded by President Roosevelt when he signed
it, he described it as "crude" and needing impor-
tant amendment. That many of its provisions
would be thrown out on constitutional grounds was
the obvious constitutional expectation; but that
the Supreme Court would so tie the hands of Con-
gress in making the commerce clause a vehicle of
Federal social security measures as the Roberts'
opinion appears to do, certainly was not antici-
