that 53 per cent of the entire student body is at
least partially self-supporting shows that Mich-

'Back TO Fundamentals'
To the Editor:
The Communist scare in the universities with its
attendant investigations and proposed investiga-
tions is reminiscent of a similar scare a few years
ago in certain orthodox churches. For years the
missionary societies had been sending their cast-
off barrels and puny pennies to their paid repre-
sentatives among the heathen across the seas. Dis-
tance lent charm to the activities of these emis-
saries until some snooping traveller discovered that
instead of teaching denominationalism ornament-
ed with the blood of the crucified Christ, these un-
grateful and harebrained apostles were neglecting
the fundamentals of baptismal ritual and many of
the churchly constitutionalities.
Immediately the ignorant populace among the
missionary-supporting laity, was aroused with the
cry of "Investigate! Clean up our mission fields!
Recall the unorthodox! Back to fundamentals! The
heathen are being imposed upon! Let us protect
At a great expense and much unnecessary
trouble, properly endorsed men were sent around
the world to find out what the missionaries were
doing. That no one was recalled following the
investigation proved to the disgruntled and be-
wildered citizenry of the church that their under-
paid apostles were doing .their best under cir-
cumstances which no one except teachers and hea-
then can possibly understand.
If our "boys and girls" may be likened to the
"heathen" of the foreign, mythical islands and
"inland jungles, may we not wish for them but one
thing-not that they may be given the "right"
ideas but that they be awakened to think for them-,

It was pretty late last Satjrday night, or
perhaps I should say early Sunday morning,
when a group of ralher nuoc:t Aows Con-
gregated in front of the D.U. Us -se a Corne
Univerity They raised such a racket tht
everyone in the house was se m ros~d n
pretty sore about it too. Finay one of the
fr aters went to quite the argument. No sooner
had he stepped out of the door t!n ne of t e
crowd yelled at him:
"Hey, you, ish ft's the D.U. tose"
The brother replied that it was.
"Well do you know Jack Srnith?"
"Yes, he's my roommate. What about it?"
"Well, will you pleash come here and pick
him out? The rest of ush want to go home."
This story originating from the campus of the
University of Colorado runs as follows:
Chi Psi fraternity was awarded $30 damages
by a student jumy of law school students. The de-
fendants were three members of Chi Omega soror-

The Chi Psi had sued for $70.
Down at the University of Oklahoma the
other day, a load arrogant freshman crowded
into the front line of the registrar's office and
blustered out. "I wanna enroll."
"You can't enroll here," he was told.
"Then where can I go?' he demanded.
The 25 fellows whom he had butted in on
then told him.
ADD EXAM QUESTION BONERS - In a his-
tory class at Illinois the professor asked his class
to define A.U.C. (which means translated from the
Roman, "from the founding of the city") and he
got from one prodigy:
A stands for apple that man loves in a pie.
U stands for unicorn and by a lion did die
C stands for care -- from the apple 'twas left.
0 stands for the grade the question will get.
A fraternity at Ohio State University was
complaining about the water in the house main,
which they claimed was unsafe for drinking.
The other day one of the members was asked.
what precaution they take. He answered, "first
we filter it."
"Then, what?" the other asked.
"Then we boil it and add chemicals."
"And then, we drink beer."

ANALYSES of the ills of the present
and past student government to
cause its attempted revision each year is not en-
tirely due to imperfections in the form of govern-
ment employed. Regardless of how much "power"
is given the council, if its members and the stu-
dents at large are not sufficiently interested to
make it an important body, it will not be one.
The trouble with a great many critics of student
government, including those who deprecatingly
remark that there is no such thing as real student
government, is that they expect the Board of Re-
gents and University officials to give them powers
and functions which have been exercised by the
University before the council has proved that it
is competent to handle them.
There have been several changes of student
councils during the past few years. Each time a
new constitution has been adopted there have
been pleas for more power until there is in the
proposed constitution an almost blanket provision
of power for the new body.
The whole idea in drafting this constitution
was to increase the power and the democratic
bacliground of this body, but on paper it appears
not very distinct from other plans which have been
submitted. The reason, basically, is that no coun-
cil is better than its membership, and its mem-
bership is no more active than the students want
it to be.
The present council undoubtedly did not go out
looking for things to do, but it acted capably with-
in its own sphere. If the new council or any new
council is to be a success, the students must know
what they want accomplished and then must in-
sist upon action by the council on these matters..
As Others See it
Let's All Have Tea
IT IS UNFORTUNATE that Harvard and Ox-
ford are having difficulties finding a debating
subject other than the two already suggested. One
of these is trivial; the other non-debatable before
an American or British audience. Neither question
commands great public interest. The subject: "Re-
solved: That This House Favors a Government
Censorship of News.", is not debatable for either
Americans or Englishmen. The First Amendment
to our Constitution provides: "Congress shall make
no law . . . abridging the freedom. . . of the press."
Popular opinion in both nations is overwhelmingly
in favor of the negative on the censorship resolu-
tion. It is significant that this is the side of theJ
question each team wishes to uphold.
To break the impasse caused by the worthless-
ness of this question, Oxford has proposed the
resolution: "That the First Function of a Biog-
rapher is to Reveal Feet of Clay." Is this bit of
dilettantism the best topic two liberal universities
can find to discuss before an international audi-
ence? Are Harvard and Oxford so secluded from
the so steeped in the academic cloister, that they
can find no more fundamental problem to argue?
Such a trivality may serve for a literary tea, but
so important an event as the Harvard-Oxford
debate merits a more vital subject. Harvard and
Oxford hold a significant position in both Amer-
ica and Great Britain. Their common spirit of
friendly inquiry and intelligent criticism should
find play in such a contest. '
The Harvard Debiting Council has refused to
discuss over a transatlantic network a subject
suitable only for a minor English A theme. Since
both teams desire the same side of the censorship
question, it remains to suggest a better theme. "Re-
solved: That the United States and Great Britain
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, Feb. 27
AS AN EXAMPLE of things political being far
from what they seem, the Senate vote on the
McCarran amendment demanding that the gov-
ernment pay wages prevailing locally for work
relief projects, is illuminating.
Attempting an analysis of
the strangely mixed motives
behind individual votes which
made up that 44-to-43 admin-
istration defeat is like trying___
to unscramble eggs. In that r
fact lies the chief hope of ad-
ministration leaders that in
the end the White House will p
have its way about the details
of the program. The weakness
of the position of the McCar-
ranites, most of whom are ar-
dently in favor of an even more . ENRIK SMIPSTEAR
gigantic work relief program,
is that they won that tilt by grace of the votes of
an indefinite number of senators whose object was
to kill, not to nourish, the resolution.
THERE is no other way of accounting for the
strange spectacle of apparent Republican
unanimity for the McCarran amendment. For the
first time in years the East-West party split failed
to show itself. A dozen Repub-
lican liberals and almost as
many die-hard regulars voted
together. Even those twin one-
Subscripti s For the

No Rich Man's
F REQUENT INSINUATIONS to the
F affect that the University of Mich-
igan is, or is becoming, a rich man's school are
pretty effectively refuted by statistics recently
released from the office of the Registrar which
show that nearly 53 per cent of the student body
earn either all or part of their way through college.
Eliminating women students, the percentage of
men alone who are wholly or partially self-sup-
porting is even more significant. The statistics
reveal that slightly more than 61 per cent of the
men fall under this classification. Nearly 30 per
cent of the campus women are working at least
part of their way.
The figures of the Registrar's office also disclose
man minorities who sit with
the Republicans, LaFollette of
Wisconsin, Progressive, and
Shipstead of Minnesota.

vaunted figure of 13,500,000
Republican votes cast in the last election, which
ignores the particular brands of Republicanism for
which much of that vote was cast.
THE FACT that 15 of the 32 senators whose terms
expire in '37 voted for the McCarran amend-
ment, 10 Republicans and five Democrats, suggests
that personal political considerations and organ-
ized labor influence played an important part in
the outcome. No doubt they did in individual cases.
Yet, the broad basis for Republican conserva-
