graduate division that is justly famous. Mr. Em-
brec, while rating Yale fifth among American
universities, says, "Yale for years has had the
best undergraduate college in the United States.
should the University of Michigan give up a
nicely balanced graduate and undergraduate po-
sition, in favor of lopsided graduate scholarship?
We think not.
Never should we allow our scholarly position
among American or foreign universities to regress,
but, as we advance in educational eminence, we
should not forget that undergraduates exist and
thai, sentimental or not, there is something in
university life besides scholarship.

Suggestion For Swingout
To the Editor:
May I offer a suggestion concerning prevention
of unseemly conduct at Swing-out time? This
morning's news item carries the statement that the
Judiciary Council will recommend expulsion for
anyone whose behavior imperils the future of the
custom. I agree that any such person should no
longer continue as a member of the student body,
but I question the necessity of expulsion as the
method of elimination. After all, the gravamen of
his action is less an offense against the
University, as such, than as it demonstrates
a lack of understanding, an incooperativeness
and an essential stupidity sufficient to mark him
out as unfitted to share in student life and ac-
tivities. He is not a "bad" man; he is simply
out of place amongst young men and women
interested in the color and charm of college life
and appreciation of the decencies of social exist-
ence.. On the other hand, such a person does
not have the moral fiber and intellectual ability to
be happy without social relationships. If he is
dropped from the group by withdrawal of friendly
associations he will not need expulsion; he will de-
part. Quite probably, if he is warned in advance
that he will be ostracised should he show his
true weakness and spoil the charm and con-
tinuance of a student affair, he will acquire a
realization of the wisdom of conformity and be-
have himself..
My suggestion is that The Daily might help-
fully take the lead in building up such an inhibi-
tion in the possible stupid show-offs of the campus.

Cure- Als
To the Editor:
With reference to your editorial of Thursday,
one question: is a "cure all" formula the sign of
the scientific physician or of the quack?
-Preston W. Slosson.


The prominence given to Huey Long be-
cause of his filibuster in Congress recently
has brought to light a little story concerning
that worthy. It was during an election in
Louisiana, and the Kingfish not having the re-
turns from one county, phoned one of the
ballot counters, a henchman of his, to ascer-
tain the way the wind was blowing.
"How many votes have I got?" asked Huey
*over the wire.
"Just finished counting," came the reply,
"and you have 15,384 votes."
"And my oppoent," was the the next query.
"How about him."
"Your oppon--." There was a moment of
confused silence. Then the counter's voice, a
tremor of fear accentuating it, regained its
power. "My God! Your opponent! We for-
got all about him. Does he have to have some
vote~s too?"
Students at Carnegie Tech at Pittsburgh have
employed a new twist in chess playing. Intercol-
legiate matches are played via the mail. Already
four other colleges are involved in this recently
expensive pastime, but since November only five
moves have been made.

in by L.O.P., '37:

A freshman at the University of California was
summoned to the offices of the dean of men. For
hours he fussed and fumed before he finally got
up enough courage to enter 4he reception room and
approach the stenographer.
Here is what the Ohio State Lantern says
about war. "A war more deadly and terrifying
than the last is a present possibility; and our
young men are frightened. Not that they would
admit it -heaven forbid. Born in the genera-
tion that popularizes 'guts,' our young men can
be nothing but 'game.' Nevertheless, our young
men are frightened, terribly frightened. War has
lost all its glamor. War for the young men of
today is pain, suffering and slaughter; while only
a generation ago it was: the Country, the Flag,
Heroism, Honor."

Eminence And
The University. ..
((TN ORDER of Their Eminence," by
.1 Edwin R. Embree,- president of the
Julius Rosenwald Fund, published in the current
issue of the Atlantic Monthly, rates the University
of Michigan sixth among all American universities.
Universities were ranked in the following order:
Harvard, Chicago, Columbia, California, Yale,
MichigandCornell, Princeton, Johns Hopkins, Wis-
consin and Minnesota.'
There should be no dissatisfaction with this rat-'
ing -California is the only other state university
given preeminence over Michigan - but it is in-
teresting to study the criteria of the judgment and
to find just where our University falls short.
The findings are based on several factors, the
two most important being the number of dis-
tinguished departments in each university as given
by the American Council on Education, and the
number of scientists at each university starred for
distinction in the 1932 edition of American Men
6f Science. These figures show that Michigan has
14 distinguished departments and 29 distinguished
scientists, as compared with 22 distinguished de-
partments and 78 distinguished scientists for the
country's leading university, Harvard.
At first glance it might seem that there is a di-
rect correlation between a university's preeminence
and its income, but this is not positive. The Uni-
versity of Chicago's endowment is less than half
that of. Harvard and well below that of several
other universities which she outranks. Quoting
Mr. Embree, "Chicago's distinction is in the
fact that frcm the first she went out with a single
purpose, not to create a fashionable college or
an enormous conglomerate institution, but to build
a university in the real meaning of the term: a
collection of the finest scientists and scholars,
working with a selected group of mature students
for the advancement of knowledge."
The fields of learning at Michigan that failed
to be termed distinguished are anthropology, bio-
chemistry, engineering, geology, German, mathe-
matics, physiology, psychology, romance languages
and sociology. Since it is too late to apply Chicago's
formula of direct planning for eminence the other
alternative for remedying this situation -if the
situation should be remedied -is to attract more
distinguished men to these departments That .re-
quires money, and a state university is, of necessity,
limited in the funds at its command.
The question now arises if Michigan should de-
inaarapivqp+.nito nraise her scolarly eminence.

As Others See It 1
Conning The Campus
(From the Michigan Alumnus)
ANOTHER GREAT Michigan tradition has fallen
in ruins! Whatever is the new generation
coming to !
With its customary disrespect of all that is holy
to "us ancient Michigan alumni," The Michigan
Daily devoted about six lines on the women's page
(!) to the story of this major disaster. And The
Daily prides itself on its belief in the sanctity of
traditions! At that, the yarn probably belonged
just where it was placed.
But let's get to the gory details of this tragedy
which has come to Michigan. In the days of
yore, so the Ann Arbor legend goes, the Laws were
men of might and brawn -and the Engineers
claimed for themselvesrsimilar attributes. Neither
entertained the slightest respect for the other. Re-
sult - the Diagonal was not long enough, though
it ran the whole extent of the Campus, to prevent
frequent and copious spillings of blood as the
two mighty hosts sought to persuade one another
of their respective supremacy. Athletic contests
were tried, but the playing ground was but the
site of the preliminary skirmishes - the real battle
ground, in which all could compete, extended right
up State Street from Ferry Field and spilled all
over the Campus.
The Engineering Arch became a monument
to the .valor of the great'warriors of that clan.
No law could pass under its sacred portals if an
Engineer was there to protest. And the Engineers
were generally there.
Alas, the picture has changed? Of late the an-
cient feud has not been measured in buckets of
blood, but just the same the oldtimers have be-
lieved that were the spark applied all would be
well, and beautiful and sanguinary explosions
would result. They were wrong. The truth must
be told and here it is - The Laws and the "co-
eds' playing a hockey game on Palmer Field last
Saturday afternoon, and tea was served. at the
conclusion of the match!
Shades of Germany Schultz and Willie Heston!
To sooth the shattered nerves of the Laws of
those other days, however, some consolation can
be offered. Those eleven great, strong hockey
players were Michigan Laws, to be sure, but be-
fore detraining at Ann Arbor they had been sub-
jected to insidious influences. Three of them
were Yale men, two were Princeton graduates, one
a Dartmouth alumnus and another a Colgate prod-
uct. There was also a Dennison man in the outfit.
There may be some excuse for them, but not for
the two Michigan A.B.'s -and the Notre Dame
man. Wait until Knute Rockne gets hold of that

[HERE is suspicion in the minds of some Sen-
ate liberals that what lay behind the sudden
Senate move to shelve the whole NRA problem
until next session by extending
the act until April instead of
for the two years asked by the
White House, was a desire to
sidetrack the Wagner labor
disputes bill. Senator Ship-
stead voiced it in debate.
"What I fear," he told Wag-
ner, "is that we shall con-
tinue NRA and the labor dis-
putes bill will be defeated. I
wanted the senator to offer
it as an amendment to this
304 -RIK SAIP5LAP (NRA extension) resolution.
E K E NRA is a monstrosity without
the other."

Nevertheless, on the show down, Senator La-
Follette was unable to musterenough hands to get
even a roll call on the resolution. That was what
the Democratic leadership, piloted by Harrison
of Mississippi, sought. It was certain to prove
a powerful support to his directly stated warning
to the House that any material change in the
resolution by that body would be almost certain
to lead to the expiration of the recovery act in toto
on June 16th next.
Harrison pledged himself to bring back to the
Senate for full debate, not merely in the privileged
status of a conference report, any major change
in the NRA program proposed by the House. That
would include an effort there to tack on the labor
disputes bill.
LA FOLLETTE contended that putting off a de-
cision as to the future of NRA until a presi-
dential year session of Congress meant slow death
to the act.
"If this resolution becomes a law, the national
industrial recovery act will be as dead as a door-
nail," he said. "If it shall be considered again
at all, it will be on the eve of a presidential
campaign. I have never seen a session on the eve
of a presidential campaign enact constructive
Clark of Missouri, sponsor of the extension res-
clution, challenged that. It seemed a bit odd
to hear these two younger senators exchanging
recollections of 30 years or more of first hand ob-
servation of Congress. As sons and political lieu-
tenants of legislator fathers, however, they share
that unusual background for Senate service.
JT IS A POINT President Roosevelt must con-
sider in any such trimming of his legislative pro-
gram for this session as the Senate's move ,on
NRA suggests. Any of the highly controversial
"New Deal" reform measures now pending which
are dumped until next session face that very great
likelihood of intensified opposition next year. The
impending presidential election will offer oppo-
nents too good an opportunity to demand a sort
of nnniihr rjear, n m tn h norlnnked.
