A Pattern For '
Student Government...
of the League, by defeating a pro-'
posal to change women's hours to 12:30 a.m. ona
Friday nights, has demonstrated beyond all doubt
its fitness to guide the destinies of coeds.
In subordinating the "personal convictions of its
members" to an overwhelming campus opinion,
the Council has earned commendation and set a
pattern for student government.
Such organs as the Council and the Men's Coun-l
cil must take cognizance of campus opinion. Other-
wise, they are of no use except as playthings and
the term student government loses its standing1
except as a hackneyed phrase.'
Jean Seeley stated, in announcing the results,
of the vote, that the members of the Council still
favored the earlier hours proposal as far as per-
sonal convictions were concerned. "However," she
continued, "without pressure of legislation from
above, we believe that campus women will arrive
at the same conclusion themselves upon consider-
ing that the purpose of college is primarily aca-
demic and this change will be toward a better
realization of this purpose."
Doubtless the 17 members of the Council are
sincere in the convictions they have expressed. Itf
is difficult to comprehend, however, the process
by which 60 minutes a week is destined to promote
a better realization of the academic aims of this
institution. That can be accomplished by a change
of attitude, not of hours.
When campus sentiment favors a cut in hours
as strongly as it now opposes one, then, and then
only, is the time for the League Council to take
action. When this change of attitude occurs,
The Daily will be the first to support the Council in
any action to change women's hours.
A Toast To The Old
And To The New...
nelli on your election to the cap-
taincy of the 1936 Michigan football team. It is
one of the greatest honors that can be obtained
at this University and you deserve it.
With honor, however; there naturally follows
certain responsibilities and duties to your coach,
to your team, and to your fellow-students, who,
unlike a number of our victory-greedy alumni,
will support you and the team wholeheartedly.
Accept these duties and responsibilities as Captain
Renner did.
And to retiring Captain Renner, we express for
your efforts throughout the past season only what
the whole campus feels . . . admiration for a job
well done. It little matters what the score is when
you can watch players on the losing side fighting
for Michigan -even though the fight is a hope-
less one. A little more of that spirit displayed by
Renner and several other members of the Mich-
igan team this season, coupled with the material
that the freshmen will offer, and it is a certainty
that the "Victers" will not be played solely at pep
Who Will Control The
Republican Convention?...
I N THE OPEN and behind the scenes
a fight is being waged between po-
tential candidates for the Republican Presidential'
nomination. But an eamalv imnortant battle. one

of remaining candidates, has been non-committal,
making hints here, throwing out feelers there, but
making no definite statement. Hoover, the man
of mystery, aside from criticizing the Roosevelt
administration at times, just won't talk.
Observers generally believe, however, that both
Borah and Hoover are more interested in con-
trolling the convention than in winning the nom-
ination. The man who controls the 1936 Repub-
lican convention will be the real power behind the
throne. Not only will he be able to determine the
candidate, but he will also be able to determine the
platform, although it is doubtful if the latter
is a very pleasurable task.
The politically inclined will do well to watch the
actions of the senator and of the former Presi-
dent,keeping in mind their probable desire to be
not the Man, but the man who makes the Man.
Should the control of the convention go to Mr.
Hoover, who will the candidate be? Certainly Mr.
Hoover would not favor the semi-liberal Vanden-
berg. Probably he would not take too kindly to-
ward Governor Landon. If he does not desire
the nomination for himself, the only other choice
he has would be to throw his support behind Col-
onel Knox.
Senator Borah, on the other hand, has shown
in a number of ways that he favors either Landon
or Vandenberg in preference to Knox. Certainly
under no circumstances will he back Mr. Hoover.
Should the Idaho senator obtain control, it is
likely that he would support Governor Landon,
rather than Senator Vandenberg. But this is only
conjecture. Events between now and the conven-
tion will tell the story of this matter, as they
will of the whole political set-up.

A Kipke Supporter
To the Editor:
The amount of criticism Harry Kipke is receiving
now is as unwarranted as the amount of praise he
received two years ago. Producing a football team,
good or bad, is not a one-man job, and I believe
a large part of Michigan's failure on the gridiron in
the last two seasons is due to the absence of Jack
Blott, who coached the forward walls of the
championship teams of 1932 and 1933, and then
left to coach the Wesleyan College eleven.
As a rule, Michigan's team is as good as its
line. In 1932 and '33 it had really great lines.
This year it had but a fair line, which accounts
for its success against elevens like Wisconsin,
Columbia and Penn which had but mediocre lines,
and its miserable showing against Ohio State and
Michigan was weak in blocking and tackling this
year and last but teaching those fundamentals is
not a head coach's job. In previous years, the
Wolverines were strong in these departments and
I believe it is more than a coincidence that Blott
was an assistant then.
Of course, Michigan has not had the material
in the last two years but I believe any one who
has followed the team closely in the past two
seasons realizes there is something wrong with the
coaching. There is nothing vastly different about
Harry Kipke. If there's any real change in the
coaching staff it's with his assistants. When Jack
Blott resigned, no real successor was obtained and
I for one would like to see him brought back
to Michigan.

As they explain the Lit. Dige. poll.
It strikes us that the question asked by the
Literary Digest implies, be it ever so subtly, thatf
a "No" is desired. It seems to us that the Digestc
is anti-Roosevelt, which is all right; but unfairly
so, which is not all right. Its question is "Do you
NOW approve the ats and policies of the Roosevelt
New Deal to date?" This is almost rhetorical in1
effect. To us the implication is that no matterI
what you once thought, you undoubtedly haver
changed your mind, and now are opposed to every-1
thing about the New Deal. Now there are few of
us, probably even the President himself, who nowf
approve of everything that has been done, per-I
petrated, and enacted under and in the name ofr
the New Deal. And yet we submit that the ques-c
tion is unfairly put. Head: Conning Tower De-f

A Washington
WASHINGTON, Nov. 26. - Over
Republican party preliminaries
in the 1928 campaign hung a great
question mark. What did PresidentR
Coolidge mean by that "I-do-not-
choose-to-run" crossword puzzle?
Thus far in the preliminaries of the
'36 campaign, two similar enigmas be-;
cloud efforts to unravel the Repub-
lican presidential nomination proba-
bilities. Are Messrs. Hoover and Bo-I
rah actual, patential or perhaps mere-+
ly strategic candidates for the honor?
Both have had much to say on1
public affairs in the last few weeks.
Both are expected to have very much
more to say. Yet there are as many
opinions as there are political writers
as to what each actually is gunning
and Senator Borah back in
Washington, that greatest of political
sounding boards, the notion that
these two former allies now personify
the rift in Republican party ranks'
upon bridging of which must rest any
confident expectation of unhorsing
the New Deal a year from now,
gripped Washington. Mr. Borah is a
skilled and experienced user of the
press conference method of publiciz-
ing his views. His return to Wash-
ington, full of comments, at a time
when the "breathing spell" was in full
operation at the White House news
center as well as elsewhere, was a
boon to a news hungry corps of writ-
ers. The senator made the most of it.
It would be difficult to read ac-
counts of what he had to say and not
set him down as a definite candidate
for the nomination. The Idahoan
seems to have no doubt himself that
Mr. Hoover is a candidate. But is
the potential Borah candidacy merely
intended to checkmate a supposed
Hoover-eastern leadership combina-
tion for uninstructed delegations, ac-
tually in Hoover interest; or does he
entertain real hopes of the nomina-
tion himself? For all the Borah lo-
quacity his interviewers did not get
much light on that.
THIS COLUMN has pointed out be-
fore that if Mr. Borah was intent
only on driving his anti-monopoly is-
sue into the Republican platform, his
strategy probably would be the same.
Backed by a showing of Borah-for-
president delegates strong enough
with the aid of various favorite son
groups to block if not to make a nomi-
nation, the senator could expect re-
spectful consideration for his plank.
The moment either he or Mr. Hoo-
ver eliminated himself from the nom-
ination race, his influence upon either
the platform or the naming of a
standard bearer would fade utterly.

"La Maternelle," produced by Jean Benoit-
Levy, starring Madeleine Renaud and Paulette
"La Maternelle' is a thoroughly startling pic-
ture and it is not a mystery thriller. One of the{
few things it has in common with other pictures,
is that it is recorded on film, otherwise it stands
For there is no one "acting" in this story of a
French day nursery. Paulette Flambert, the little
girl whose mother deserts her, is just that, a slight
and bewildered child seeking someone who will
pay her attention and return her love. She can't
sing or dance. Neither she nor any other char-
acter uses makeup. But she is a real child and
not for a minute does she or the swarm of other
children look like they are taking cues.
Madeleine Renaud is Rose,,a maid in the nurs-
ery. She is decidedly a pretty maid. But always
a maid. When she is working she wears woolen
stockings that make her legs look stout and her
slippered feet point outwards as they would if she
were standing on them all day. When you watch
her as she slumps into a chair at the end of the
day, you feel tired with her. When she takes Pau-
lette home with her because the child's mother
has not returned, you are convinced that it is the
only thing to do and that it isn't done because
the plot flows better that way.
Although the action revolves about the facts that
Paulette first loses her mother and when she
placed her faith in Rose she is taken from her
by marriage with the nursery doctor, it is the work
of the unnamed - the thirty or forty Montmartre
children - which demands attention above all else.
They are dirty, off the streets of one of the filthiest
slums in the world. They wobble around in rags
that were not good clothes ripped for the shots.
"La Maternelle" is not to be termed, "best I ever
saw" or "finest the French have produced," not
I because it isn't but because there is no basis for
