and demagogues, we let them speak on the radio
and form harmless "Share-the-wealth" clubs,
although sometimes, unfortunately, they get
assassinated. We think we live in an enlightened
age, but insist that our teachers all swear upon
their honor not to teach their students about
certain theories of government, and insist that
the vast expanse of Russia once more become
a white "unknown" space on the world maps.
This is indubitably a gesture in the direction
of a one-party, one-religion country. If we do

ARTICLE IV of the Interfraternity
Council's new social regulation
reads that "responsibility for the conduct of the
members of the party and for the enforcement of
these rules shall rest with the president of each
fraternity" - which should effectively suggest to
fraternity presidents that the success of fraternity
self-government rests almost entirely upon their
The truth of this should be forcefully driven
into the consciousness of fraternity presidents at
this time particularly. In the first place, the in-
itial success of the council as a self-governing body
will be responsible for its acceptance in an estab-
lished system. In the second place, J-Hop house
parties, held on the year's most lively week-end
and naturally conducive to misconduct, offer the
greatest trial that fraternities will have to face
in the next year.
No doubt fraternity presidents will have con-
flicting reactions when they find instances of mis-
conduct which should be reported to the executive
committee of the Council. They can see them-
selves thought of as prigs by their own brothers;
they can foresee their chagrin at being one of sev-
eral fraternities disciplined; and they can see
themselves labelled "suckers" by some houses
which do not report infractions.
But they were active in demanding self-gov-
ernment for the council, so it is their duty to fulfill
the obligations they have delegated to themselves.
And, too, they should realize that an apprehended
case of misconduct that is not reported by the
house president will be dealt with more strictly.
There is only one alternative to a conscientious
enforcement and cooperation of fraternities; that
is a return to University-governed. fraternities.
The University's support of fraternities in their
new venture may quickly change to condemnation
if the self-government proves to be merely a pre-
The Land Of
F OR THE FIRST TIME in the his-
tory of this country, a woman this
week has been deprived of her children for
political and religious reasons.
In adivorce suit in the East in which both
parents contested for the custody of two chil-
dren, the judge awarded the children to the
father on the basis of evidence which proved
'that the mother was a communist and did not
believe in God.
When asked by the judge whether she would
bring up the children to hold democracy as the
highest type of government and to worship the
Lord who gave us our country, she replied that
she would teach them to think for themselves,
to read a great deal and to be broad-minded,
whereupon the judge, ruling that the majority of
Americans think differently, awarded the children
to the father.
In so doing, the judge vitiated the essential
principles of democracy -- which holds that out
of the free concourse of unfettered minds will
arise social progress, without bloodshed.

To the Editor:
You should be ashamed of yourself -snapping
back at our little brother, Michigan State.
He's sufficiently humiliated at having to earn
his athletic livelihood by playing football down
here each year. It's bad enough for him to
know that he'd have to quit making nice offers
to the football players who can't get into school
here-yes, that he'd have to go on the welfare
altogether -if it weren't for the dollars we so
generously pay him along about October 1st year
in and year out. And that being the case, why
do you have to rub it in further?
Little brother's trying earnestly enough to get
along, you know. He's still in the tinkertoy stage,
trying to learn by making mistakes. He has
"star" ends who throw away football games by
tossing lateral passes into space, but he won't
always have them - we hope. And we can be
generous and predict he won't always have just
those funny little rows of seats in which a few
people sit on Saturday afternoons in the fall -
just to watch him and his playmates and to
wonder whether he'll ever grow up.
Seriously, now, it's too bad for us that our
little brother isn't going to play Notre Dame,
for if he could arrange a transfer, we wouldn't
have to bother with him on those first Saturdays
in October of 1936, 1937 and 1938, and wouldn't
have to humiliate him by further almsgiving.
But that's just the point, I'll bet. The sly little
rascal knows he has his candy assured for three
more years and can afford to stick out his tongue
at us. Maybe he's dry behind the ears, after all -
and some day will be able to both play football
and substitute for his conversational "dese" and
"dose" the good English words "these" and "those."
Square Pegs - Round Holes
(From the Brown Daily Herald)
A REPUTATION for being a very able professor
and handling one's classes and work excep-
tionally well seems a very poor excuse to add
to that faculty member's duties a minor admin-
istrative function which could be handled by an
outsider on a very small salary. Thus some of the
ablest members of the Brown faculty instead of
being allowed to pursue their departmental duties
to their own and the undergraduate's further
advantage, are placed in positions which require
a great amount of routine work but no ability ex-
cept possibly a little discipline.
Examples of these are found in many minor
adminitrative functions. These positions are of
undebatable importance in the life of the university
but they are not such that they could not be man-
aged by one who does not possess a high repu-
tation for his academic work. No university can
boast of unlimited talent among its faculty, Brown
included. Brown should therefore develop and put
to the best advantage that talent which it has.
There are many other cases on the campus in
which this has not been done.
(From the Daily Texan)
O NE OF THE MOST encouraging things that has
happened around here recently was the gen-
eral faculty sanction of the committee "on organ-
ization, functions, and future of the University."
Nominated by and chosen from junior profes-
sors, the committee is to study and report means
by which the University might keep in step with
modern educational trends from the standpoint of
ideals, organization, and policies.
While there are no actual figures to measure the
conservatism of the general faculty, it must be con-
ceded that a certain amount of traditional rigidity
exists in the present faculty situation, logically
dominated by the veterans. This is not to say
that the upper members are of anything but a gen-
erally high calibre from both the personal and
academic standpoint. But the rigidity of any in-
stitution is attributable to the dominance and in-
fluence of those longest in association with it.
Unconsciously the older members have been
obliged to monopolize the faculty's part in the gov-
ernment of University affairs. It is natural that
they should be unaware of whatever incidental in-
timidation they might have inflicted upon the jun-
ior ranking professors.
Younger faculty members have always had some
sound, progressive ideas about University better-
ment. The trouble is their thoughts have for the
most part been ignored in higher circles as ill-
considered, unauthorized or disconnected. The
coalition of these ideas into a tangible program

Today, the sky is blue above,
And white the fields that lie below,
As I go meekly with my love
To try our skill upon the snow.
My love can skate, my love can ski,
My love grew up in Michigan.
These Dixie feet - alas, poor me! -
Will never do the tricks his can.
But long I've known of peace the price
Is wifely tact, and so I praise
His winged skill - then smack the ice
Beneath his patronizing gaze.
But limping homeward, nearly dead,
Each muscle sore from such impact,
I wish that Winter Sport I've wed
Could go and sit upon that tact.
Among Kipling's triumphs was that of the
parodist; doubly triumphant was he in that his
parody is far better known than the poem paro-
died. This is "The Betrothed," beginning:
Open the old cigar-box, get me a Cuba stout,
For things are running cross-ways and Maggie
and I are out.
This is the poem in which occurs:
And a woman is only a woman, but a good
Cigar is a Smoke.
That is parody of one of Will Carleton's "Farm
Ballads," the title of which we don't even recall.
One of those ballads was "Over the Hill to the
Poorhouse." The poem Kipling took for his
Draw up the papers, lawyer, and make 'em
good and stout,
For things are wrong at the Crossways, and
Maggie and I are out.
Excellent as our Mr. Lawrence Gilman's piece
in yesterday's paper was on the subject of Brahms,
we were disappointed in it. We wanted to read
what an erudite but beautifully writing expert
had to say about the songs that were carpentered
from Kipling. They were - and still are - ex-
cessively popular, and must have had tremendous
sales, in sheet music and in gramophone records.
The most widely known are Reginald de Koven's
"Recessional"; Oley Speaks's "On the Road to
Mandalay," and Walter Damrosch's "Danny
Deever." O.K., Mr. G., next Sunday?
"That's the secret. 'Tisn't beauty, so to speak,
nor good talk necessarily. It's just It."
And that, dear pupils, was not said by Elinor
Glyn, nor of Clara Bow. It is a quotation from
"Mrs. Bathurst" ("Traffic and Discoveries," 1904),
by Rudyard Kipling.

the National Association of Outboard Motor

"FRED ALLEN FOR THE SMILE OF BEAUTY,
Fred Allen for the Smile of Health." This is
a slogan often heard on the radio. It means
that you must, if you wish to continue to hear
it, rush right out and buy a tube of some-
thing, or a bottle of something, the name of
which can be ascertained when Harry von
Something comes on and says, "Remember -
Fred Allen for the Smile of Beauty, Fred Allen
for the Smile of Health.""
"I DIDN'T RAISE MY BOND TO BE A BABY."
Senator Bonus R. Shrugg made this admission
in referring to his bill to repeal the Dionne
quintuplets. The bill was eventually defeated
in the Baby Senate, to the great relief of
traders on the Big Baby Board in New York.
"BOONDOGGLING OUR WAY OUT." The
coiners of the expressions "Hello, you Old
Potato!" and "Grass will grow in the streets"
ought to get together with the author of this
one. For if three heads are better than none,
they ought to be able to co-author the long-
needed "What this country needs is a good
five-cent phrase-maker with a better path
beaten to his door than his mouse-trap building
neighbor who does a heap-o-'living in a house
by the side of a road."
AT THE MAJESTIC
A Warner Brothers picture starring
Errol Flynn and OliviasDe Havilland
with Lionel Atwill, Basil Rathbone,
Ross Alexander, Guy Kibbee, etc.
From doctor to slave to pirate to
colonial governor - that's the story of
the amazing adventures of Peter
Blood told in the current cinema at
the Majestic. Errol Flynn, appearing
in the title role, is a welcome addition
to the American screen and does a
fine job. Olivia de Havilland as Miss
Bishop, niece of the governor of Port
Royal, is very satisfying --talented
and beautiful. The governor is played
by Lionel Atwill who is at his best
in just such a part; Guy Kibbee and
Basil Rathbone stand out among the
pirates, the former furnishing the
One criticism is that the scenery
is often too obviously false. Naturally
it has to be false, but the nearer it
approaches perfection the less it is
distracting. The show was produced
on a grand scale with a large cast
and periodic reproductions that are
The story opens with the Mon-
mouth rebellion against King Janes
II of England, in which Peter be-
comes involved because he, as a doc-
tor, treated a rebel. For this he is
sent with a number of others to
Port Royal to be sold as a slave. Miss
Bishop feels sorry for him and buys
him herself for 10 pounds, and he is
put to work on her uncle's gang with
a number of others. Together they
plot escape and when the city is
taken by a Spanish ship they steal
the ship and become pirates, for they
are men without a country. Peter
becomes the most notorious pirate
in the Caribbean, but is a merciful
one who forces his men to follow
a set code in their profession.
Miss Bishop is captured and held
for ransom by Captain Lavasseur
(Basil Rathbone), another pirate
who is less concerned with codes, but
Peter ransoms her and kills Lavas-
seur. He then sails for Port Royal to
drop her at her home, and on the
way is informed that James has been
dethroned i favor of William of
Orange; that Peter and his men have
all been pardoned and given a chance
to join his majesty's navy. When
they find the French attacking Port
Royal the new members of the British
navy save the city. Governor Bishop
is put out of office because he was
away with the fleet when the French
attacked, Blood is given the post, and
the romance between Peter and Miss
Bishop comes to a happy conclusion.

toons is included in the accompany-

It is gratifying to see that Hal
Kemp is at last receiving the atten-

of New York City and the East as
a whole. This personable orchestra
leader has really a fine band, and it
has been recognized as such for a
number of years by radio listeners
of the Middle West and the South,
but until this last year the only
people in the eastern part of the
country who really appreciated Kemp
were the so-called "band-bugs." Hal

Registration Notice: During the
period from Wednesday noon to Fri-
day noon (Feb. 12-14 students may
register only for themselves individ-
ually with the following two excep-
(1) The registrant may bring the
registration blanks of one or more
fellow students whose names fall
within the same published alphabet-
ical subdivision as his own.
(2) He may register for students'
outside his own alphabetical group
(not for himself) during the period
or periods alphabetically allotted to
such other student or students.
Obviously if registrations were to
be attempted in more than one al-
phabetical group at once the whole
endeavor to save time by the alpha-
betical grouping would break down.
During Friday afternoon or Sat-
urday morning, registrants may reg-
ister for others besides themselves, as
these two half days have not been al-
lotted to any specific group.

Laws adopted by the Board of Re-
gents in September, 1934:
"Students should realize that their
enrollment in the University carries
with it obligations in regardto con-
duct, not only inside but also out-
side the classroom, and they are ex-
pected to conduct themselves so as to
be a credit both to themselves and
to the University. They are amen-
able to the laws governing the com-
munity as well as to the rules and
orders of the University and Uni-
versity officials, and are expected to
observe the standards of conduct ap-
proved by the University.
Whenever a student, group of stu-
dents, society, fraternity or other
student organization fails to observe
the principles of conduct as above
outlined, or conducts /himself or it-
self in such a manner as to make
it apparent that he or it is not a de-
sirable member of the University, he
or it shall be liable to disciplinary
Attention is also called to the fol-
lowing announcement made by the
University Committee on Student
Conduct in September, 1934:
"It is the opinion of the University
that the use of intoxicating liquors
in a fraternity house has a tendency
to impair the morale of the organiza-
tion and is contrary to the best in-
terests of both the fraternity itself
and of the University."

as to those who have purchased 1936
plates. All old student permit tags
are void as of Feb. 1, 1936 and their
continued use will constitute grounds
