Hell Week.. .
drawn from the extensive investiga-
tion recently completed by the Executive Commit-
tee of the Interfraternity Council and that is that
Hell Week, as it now exists on this campus, should
be permanently abolished.
Feeble attempts have been made during the
past three years by the Interfraternity Council
to "modify" Hell Week, and yet injuries, sadistic
practices, and criticism from faculty members of
the detrimental effect the probationary period has
on scholastic work, are still prevalent issues. And
these conditions will continue as long as the Inter-
fraternity Council passes rules which are ad-
mittedly nothing more than a "front" for a dis-
gusted University administration.
Even if the Interfraternity Council were to pass
regulations which did "modify" the initiations, it
is not likely that they could enforce them. An
excellent code of rushing ethics has been in exist-
ence here for some years, but the many violations
of it that are known by fraternity men are seldom
reported. What then would fraternity members do
in reporting another house for violating Hell
Week rules which they themselves do not respect?
The reasons for abolishing Hell Week are per-
fectly obvious and, equally obvious is their unde-
niable validity. The cardinal reasons are: (1) both
active and pledge members of fraternities are use-
less in the classroom during the probationary
period, as many instructors will testify, (2) the
practices endanger both the mental and physical
health of the pledge, (3) many of the practices
are barbarous and sadistic, and (4) the period does
not serve its originally intended end.
The source of an abolition should come from
the general Interfraternity Council, but it never
has and undoubtedly never will. House presidents
in the interfraternity group reason in this man-
ner: "Hell Week undoubtedly should be strictly
modified and if every house conducted their Hell
Week as we conduct ours, there would be no need
for regulatory measures." It is pretty obvious,
however, that this statement is a fallacy, when
the Executive Committee sees fit to discipline two
houses and warn many others for Hell Week
Where the action on the whole matter must
come from and from where it now appears it will
be coming is the Executive Committee. For three
weeks they have been working on their investiga-
tion and it is generally understood that aside from
their disciplinary action, a very definite decision
on the whole problem of Hell Week will be an-

nounced. Whether this means modification or
abolition no one but the Committee knows, but
after viewing their extremely courageous action
in meting out the stiffest punishment empowered
to them under their constitution, it is not at all
unlikely that they will abolish Hell Week.
To those who question their power in taking
such drastic action, refer to the constitution that
governs the Interfraternity Council. The Execu-
tive Committee has complete power to take any
action on matte}"s relating to general fraternities
and their action shall be considered final unless
five members of the Council submit a petition to
bring the matter before the general Council. In
such a case a three-fifths vote is necessary to
veto the Executive Committee's action.
If the Interfraternity Council should veto an
action by the Executive Committee to abolish Hell
Week, the University might and certainly should
step in and take administrative steps to halt the
practices. This indeed would be an unfortunate
move for the fraternity system here, because once

States' Rights
And Child Labor
W 7HEN an owner of a mill, employing
children opposes a law which will
prohibit child labor his action is easy to under-
stand. We preclude these men from our appeal
for definite action on the question of child labor
just as naturally as we turn to those less in-
terested in the profit to be made by employing
children. We may turn to educators, for instance,
and to the church. For surely they should side
with us against a social evil.
But apparently we have been mistaken, for in
the state capital of New York, Dr. Nicholas Mur-
ray Butler, president of Columbia University, was
joined by Catholic groups in openly condemning
the federal control of child labor on the grounds
that such control would menace the rights of
To say that children should be exploited under
government sanction in order to protect states'
rights is to hold it our duty to protect the welfare
of the "state" in preference to that of its people.
Such an argument exhibits its propounder as one
who has the most atrophied conception of what a
state is meant to be. To such a man the people
must serve the state, not the state the people.
How such a. perverted rationalization can be
born, it is difficult to say. We were under the im-
pression, heretofore, that in the colleges, at least,
it was agreed that the proper function of a state is
to protect and to foster the welfare of the people.
Apparently Dr. Butler is leading the way to a
different governmental conception. Now he is
calling to the world the song which we thought
had lost its charm when feudalism died. It is
a dirge which seems to come at the funeral of
many states and systems. Its melody and its lyrics
cry that the "state" is the permanent value, the
people transient. It exhorts us to lower our stand-
ards that the "state" may go on.
If we must stretch the provisions of our existing
system to the full and it still cannot sanction
the abolition once and for all of child labor,
then there is certainly a fundamental wrong in
the system. For no government in the 20th cen-
tury can be called adequate if it cannot set down
reasonable minimum standards for the health and
education of its population. Progress consists not
of a lowering of standards and ideals to strengthen
the government, but of strengthening ideals and
changing the government. A child-labor amend-
ment would alter the government for the realiza-
tion of an ideal, the fulfillment of which has been
delayed an alarmingly long time.

Who's Cuting Whose Thr-oat?
To the Editor:
I feel called upon to answer the letter of J.W.H.
in Wednesday's Daily, because of the obvious lack
of thought and reasoning which he has shown.
I feel that if this attitude becomes widespread,
much harm can be done. His attitude is typical of
those in this University who jump at conclusions
and speak their first impressions.
The idea that the fraternities are cutting their
own throats by disciplinary action is absurd. On,
the other hand, the fraternities are cutting their
own throats by allowing such practices and con-
ditions to prevail as have been in the past. J.W.H.,
you fail to see that you are cutting your own
throat by allowing out-dated practices to go on.-
In the first place, the University does not want
to do away with fraternities. True, the University
does not believe that fraternities are completely
fulfilling their purpose on the campus, nor living
up to their own ideals as set up in the rituals of
each fraternity. For these reasons, the University
administration has sought to have fraternities im-
prove their ways of doing things. You, too, must
admit that there is something wrong with frater-

nities when at least two prominent houses allow
over 50 per cent of their pledges to fail to make
grades for initiation.
Secondly, you mistake the purpose of the Ex-
ecutive Committee. The Committee sincerely be-
lieves that it can do something to improve the
status of the fraternities. Its first move is to
eliminate certain aspects of Hell Week which net
the fraternities much adverse criticism and cause
some university administrators to doubt the pur-
pose of fraternities.
It is felt by the Executive Committee that the
fraternity system on this campus can be im-
proved and made a much more important force I
in campus life. But only a reorganization and a
revision of ideas will achieve this goal.
Your vision is indeed narrow when you imagine
that the actions taken were prompted by selfish
motives. You certainly miss the purpose, which
is to improve the fraternity system to such
a position that it will be a real asset to campus
life. This improvement will take place, too, if we
can get the cooperation of people like yourself,
who, on the defensive, think that every move
taken is a move to hurt fraternities.

Michigan And New jersey
To the Editor:
The article is one of last week's issues of The
'Daily' concerning Prof. Pollock's Civil Service
Commission loses much of its force when one looks
up the authentic population figures of Michigan
and New Jersey. The official census figures for
1930 show that New Jersey has nearly one million
less inhabitants than Michigan, in variance with
the article's statement that "New Jersey (is) a state
of equal population (to Michigan)."
On the population basis we find that .02%, per

The Conning Tower
YOU see her in a lonely cabin door
At close of day; or sowing rhythmic seeds
In ash-gray fields; or standing mute before
You, clean of kerchief, to serve your trivial needs.
This type is worn and weathered, and too lean.
Patience is stamped in every lineament.
Not the black mammy of the book and screen -
A :woman whose bearing is most eloquent
Of furrowed Time, whose partner she has been;
Of waiting with no wonder in her eyes;
Of nobleness, a thing she has not seen
And does not know she carries in disguise.
Illiterate yet learned, beyond all schools,
From wells of wisdom ever closed to fools.
As straight and balanced as her native pines,
(That comes from toting burdens on her head)
Her movements have the gentle, swaying lines
Of Spanish moss, habitual and inbred.
As black as night and waiting for the night,
She has no hand in her dark destiny.
Her eyes remote, as one of farther sight,
She scarcely sees immediate imagery.
It may be she is neither wise nor great;
Her soul, surviving, may not be sublime;
Still she persists, a figure defeating fate,
A spirit free, and almost freed from Time.
Her presence spreads a benedicite
As in a desert the shadow of a tree. G.A.
(Charleston, S.C.)
Representative John S. McGroarty, of Cali-
fornia, has resigned from Old Age Revolving
Pensions, which is slang for the Townsend Plan.
And we think that we know why. On Monday
Representative Monaghan introduced a resolu-
tion "to make John Stevens McGroarty honorary
poet laureate of America." It seems that this
honor is to come to him chiefly for his author-
ship of a poem called "The Lady Eleanor," which
was written to honor Our Favorite Diarist. It
may be that we have read the poem, but we
can't remember it. Mr. McGroarty has been
conducting for many years a page in the Los
Angeles Sunday Times, called "From the Green
Vendugo Hills." Laureateship is nothing new to
him, for three years ago he was made official
laureate of California. His "Just California"
Sun and dews that kissed it,
Balmy winds that blow,
The stars in clustered diadems
Upon its peaks of snow.
The mighty mountains o'er it,
Below, the white seas swirled -
Just California, stretching down
The middle of the world.
Now, this is not poetry; it is prosy verse. Per-
haps Mr. McGroarty is resigning in order, as
newspaper men who take leave of absence say,
to devote his time to Literary Work. We wish
that he would write a poem about the Townsend
Plan, and we'll give him a start:
The Old Age Revolving Pensions
Are o'erbrimping with dissensions -
It seems to us that "honorary poet laureate of
America" is redundant. Who is non-honorary,
or official, p. 1.?
One of the first members to arrive on Capitol
Hill mornings is Assemblyman James J. Wads-
worth of Geneseo. He is there before 9 p.m.,
seldom leaves before 5 p.m., and, as the rule, is at
work Saturday mornings - Albany Knickerbocker-
That either is a twenty-hour day or a minus-
four-hour day.
hic jacet rex Arturus,
rex quondam, rex futurus.
Who journey forth from storied Camelot
To seek the gleam beyond the sunset's glow -
The blinding truth men search for but find not,
The beauty legended of long ago -
Leave warm hearth ease and love and gold behind,
Forswear the simple round of toil and rest,

And search, heart sick and haunted, till they find
Beauty a legend, truth a mirthless jest.
Who quested after truth and found it not,
Who searched afar for loveliness in vain
Return at last to love, hearth ease, and gold,
Rest at the last by dim fires, turning again
The pages of old books wherein is told
How Arthur kept the faith at Camelot.
There was a decrease in motor accidents and
fatalities during the first seven weeks of 1936
over a corresponding period in 1935. There must
have been a tremendous decrease during those
weeks in motoring and in pedestrianism. From
January 18 to the last of those seven weeks
few persons did any motoring or walking except
what they considered necessary. To our notion,
the figures of comparative safety are based on
false assumptions.
Mr. Hamilton Fish, Jr., is less proud of being a
Harvard man because the President, another
Communist like Heywood Broun, also is a Har-
vard alumnus. If Mr. Fish fails of election as
running mate to Senator Borah he might have
four idle years on his hands to qualify as a
Yale or a Princeton man.

They talk against gambling, yet Senator Borah


Cure, might well be a



worthy the intensive research of some
earnest and inquiitiv onlg scholar.
Surley no other hobby is ridden so
madly, so extravagantly ,so zealously
as book-collecting. Whether it be
the lure of the antique, the love of
speculation, or the limitless breadth
of the field, the pernicious disease of
bibliomania finds more and more vic-
tims every year.
A. Edward Newton, that delightful
harbinger of the hobby, is no doubt
partially responsible for populariz-
ing the sport among rich and poor.
Again the lively market competition
is an important factor, for the ad-
vertising given to important sales
stimulates public interest tremen
dously. While the acquisition of cer-
tain rarities by museums is decreas-
ing the available supply, the num-
ber of bidders keeps increasing year
by year. Perhaps this permanent
hoarding of older works is respon-
sible for the astonishing value of
comparatively recent manuscripts
and books at public auctions.
Sometimes the value of an edition
seems totally without rhyme or rea-
son. At Sotheby's auction rooms in
London in 1929 Charles Dickens'
writing desk, on which he wrote all
his greatest work, was put up for
sale. The desk had been given. him
when he was an obscure young man
of 21, and he used it consistantly un-
til his death. At the same sale a first
edition of his Tale of Two Cities was
offered. The writing desk brought
exactly $25, the battered book $6,-
500. Likewise Tennyson's cloak, of
black broadcloth with bronze chain
and hook, brought $30, an infinitesm-
al part of the value of certain Tenny-
son editions.
The highest price ever paid for a
manuscript by a modern author is
834,000. Twelve chapters of Thomas
Hardy's A Pair of Blue Eyes were sold
to a collector for this sum at a re-
cent sale. A copy of Hardy's Jude
The Obscure, with an inscription by
the author concerning the criticisms
which caused him to give up novel
vriting, sold for $4,100. The man-
uscript of Far From The Madding
Crowd, which A. Edward Newton
bought at a Red Cross sale in Lon-
don in 1915 for $1,750, is now valued
at $75,000.
More astonishing yet, perhaps, are
the values so swiftly acquired by the
works of living authors. The script
of R. C. Sherriff's Journey's End, 400
typewritten pages, copiously marked,
was sold by that author for $7,500.
For the more modest collector, who
cannot afford this traffic in manu-
scripts, the prices of recent first ed-
itions may stimulate his speculation.
The first edition of Thornton Wild-
er's Bridge of San Luis Rey, published
only as far back as 1927, is already
quoted at $40, while Edna St. Vin-
cent Millay's Renascence, if you have
a copy, is valued at $32.50. No doubt
the value of these and many others
will be enhanced with passing years.
Occasionally some curious cir-
cumstance is responsible for a soar-
ing price. When Lewis Carroll saw
the first edition of Alice In Wonder-
land, in 1865, he was so disappointed
1ith the illustrations that he wrote
to all who purchased copies offering
to replace their books with a better
later printing. Now this same edi-
tion is so rare as to be worth several
thousand dollars. Both the first
American edition (1866) and the sec-
ond London edition (1866) are rare
enough to be extremely valuable.
Of course the cherished hope of
every hobbyist is to unearth some
priceless tome in the moldy back-
shelves of a second-hand store. One
dealer recently discovered in a pile of
dusty books he had bought for a few
cents a first edition of Poe's Murders
in The Rue Morgue. He sold it to a
collector for $25,000. It is not always
easy to recognize the value of a vol-
ume, and doubtless scores of interest-
ing ones still lie buried in dusty ob-

scurity. Thus a worn old copy of
The Narrative of The Shipwreck of
The Whale-Ship Essex, of Nantucket
bL ought $1,675 the other day in New
York, when it was found to have be-
longed to Herman Melville, and con-
tamed the original incident around
which Moby Dick was written. A
local book-collector delving in a De-
troit shop not long ago brought to
light a valuable first edition set of
N rpoleon's Memoirs.
