The Sleeping
Senate ..
STUDENTS of the University re-
ceived with interest the news that
the Senate, sleeping governing body of the Uni-
versity, would meet again within a fortnight, ald
are speculating whether the awakening is going
to be more than temporary.
The Senate, made up of faculty men and ad-
ministrative officers, has not met now for more
than four years. According to the By-Laws of
the University, Section 3 (a):
"The University Senate is authorized and
expected to originate and consider measures
for the maintenance of a liberal and compre-
hensive policy of education; for the maxi-
mum utilization of the intellectual resources
of the University for the governmet, guid-
ance and discipline of the student bedy and
the oversight of its activities; and generally
to consider all subjects that reate to the
usefulness, leadership and effectiveness of
the University, and to the coordination of
the functions of its several schools and col-
leges; and to make recommendations there-
on to the Regents."
With an enrollment of more than 500, the
Senate was judged too unwieldy for practical
service, and in 1931 it created the University
Council to act as a working committee, reserving
for itself the right to review all, legislative action
of the Council. The Council was made up of 22
administrative officers as ex-officio members
and 34 representative members, although, since
some representative members, particularly the
delegates from the Schools of Music, Business
Administration, Pharmacy, Medicine, etc., were
also administrative officers, ,the balance was
about even. On a few occasions after the cre-
ation of the University Council, the Senate met,
but attendance and interest was low, and, in
November of 1932, it met for the last time to
date.
The change to the University Council syste
may have made for greater efficiency, but it
meant the virtual end of democratic govern-
ment of the University. Students have been

sensitive to the fact that their faculty has little
more voice in the determination of the educa-
tional policies of the University, appointments
and building program than they themselves have.
The faculty settled into a sleep of indifference,
and did not exercise its right of review over
the Council. Only now has that sleep been
stirred, and by the signatures of 90 men, among
them some of the most respected on the faculty,
the Senate has been called.
President Ruthven has indicated his sympathy
with the reawakened interest on the part of
faculty men to find a medium of direct expres-
sion on the government of the University, and he
hopes, as we do, that the interest will be sus-
tained.
TmA. ..,. .1 . . . ..bL.,r .?I ,. . .. t:....x. . . y,:. s .

new organizations must be created, we believe
with President Ruthven that the members of
the faculty, representing as they do the actual
nucleus of learning about which the University is
built, are failing in their duty unless they take
upon themselves an active part in the govern-
ment of the University. We await with con-
siderable interest the outcome of the Senate
meeting on the fourteenth of December.

Students Indiscretions
To the Editor:
People are always dwelling for hours on un-
important matters of what show to attend, which
class to bolt, why the weather is so cold. And
vital factors relevant to personal health are cast
aside to go with the wind. Most college students
are away from home and are no longer under the
protective wings of their maters. So free as a
bird "they flit around without red flannels and
sooner or later some Jo College finds himself
victim of a cold. Of course, that's much too
minor an illness to waste time going to the
Health Service; so the drug store allures him
on. And the druggist, who must be every-
thing from a candlestick maker to a doctor,
prescribes our hero some well-known proprietary.
This product must be good; for did not the
hypnotic air waves testify for it? The reason
he gets well sooner or later is because seven oit
of ten people get well in spite of all mediation.
But if he gets worse-then the fun begins; and
who gets the brunt of the trouble-the Health
Service. How simple to avoid any such com-
plications by promptly adhering to correct pro-
phylaxis and correct therapy. You would not
resort to candle light to study by, so why resort
to patent medicine to get well by? People ought
to dwell some hours on this matter.

Sandwich Man Protest
To the Editor:
Under the bold italic heading "Ignominious"
which means despicable or worthy of disgrace
you published a letter which I would call slan-
derous and which others have called narrow-
minded. The letter was written by James C.
Palms who apparently doesn't care much for that
vilainous Robert Vander Pyl.
According to Mr. Palms' insinuations, the de-
spicable Mr. Vander Pyl slunk nightly, to his
den of hideous snakes and devised ingenious
ways to conceal political practices which the
Washtenaw Party had undertaken in defiance
of University regulations. Then when his party
lost the election by only a few votes, it is in-
ferred that Vander Pyl went crying to the
Men's Council for justice because a sandwich
man rested his sign on a campus sidewalk.
Realy MVw, Mr. Editor, -I hope you did not
attach the heading "Ignominious" to that letter
because you beheve Mr. Palms' accusations are
justifiable. I admit that it is an extremely rare
occurrence when a losing party gets two im-
portant dance committee jobs, but do consider
that the grounds for protest may have been
warranted.
In the first place it was not the outcome
of the election that was contested but the legality
of the election. In the second place the pro-
test was not issued to the Men's Council until
Mr. Vander Pyl was advised to do so by Dean
Rea, Professor H. C. Anderson, alumni-student
adviscr, and the offices of Shirley W. Smith and
President Ruthven, all of whom considered the
grounds for protest justifiable.
You see, the sandwich man was technically
illegal but the protest was not directed at him
but rather at the sign outside the northeast en-
trance of Angell Hall, the sign on the building
above the door, the composite above the door of
the election room and the hand bills tacked to
the doors.

In conclusion, let me assure you that the pro-
test was vicarious and not personal and let me
deny your statement that "all three parties in-
dulged in practices that weren't strictly on the
up and up as far as the university is concerned."
Clean politics has always been the main platform
of the Washtenaw Party and I defy anyone to
prove that Washtenaw disobeyed any university
regulations in its campaigning.
-Robert A. Vander Pyl.
Dormitory Petition
To the Editor:
While the activities of the University Housing
Committee are a step in the right direction, I
do not believe that expectancy of gifts from
alumni and proceeds from student dances is go-
ing to get us dormitories in a hurry, nor is it
going to get us enough dormitories. The Uni-
versity, as it is a state institution, may and should
ask the state legislature for its financial support
for dormitories. A petition, sponsored by the
Housing Committee, at the same time it at-
tempted to raise funds in other ways, would, I
believe, have great effect in showing the legis-
lature what the sentiment for dorms really is on
the campus. -E.S.

SPECIAL TO THE LAW SCHOOL: George Har-

president of U.S. Steel, flew to Pittsburgh to cast
his vote for Average Alf in the recent fracas.
Even this superb effort failed to 'put Pennsyl-
vania's native son into the White House' . . . Kent
Chapman, who hails from way down in the Se-
wanee region, tells this story of the southern
counterpart of Willie Heston. The famed grid-
der's younger brother returned home with a
battered face and explained that some Phi Bete
had sneaked a lucky punch. Whereupon the
legendary figure pulled on his turtleneck sweater
and said, "Come on, Bud, we'll wipe out the whole
damn house" . . . Chpman is also the man who

was almost knocked down by three ladies who
were making their hasty departure from beneath
one of the arches of an evening of last week.
PROFESSOR ARTHUR CROSS, noted jokester
of the history department, was in fine fettle
last night as he entertained the Druids with one
of his swell talks, in the course of which he told
some stcries that brought down the assembly.
One of the best was a story about Jay Gould and
his son.
Old Jay, not famed' as an advocate of Aristo-
telian ethics, trained his boy to take over the
presidency of the company, and in so doing edu-
cated him in the school of brakeman and coal

Upon the demise of Gould, Sr., the son as-
sumed the reins and some months later ran into
a yardman whom he had known while learning
the railroad game.
"You probably don't remember me," the young-
ster explained, "I used to work with you and
I'm president of the road now."
"Sure," replied the old timer, "but your fa-
ther'll soon enough be president again."
"Oh, I'm afraid you don't understand," young
Gould broke in, "my father is dead."
"That he is fur sure, but you know where your
father went, and the road'll be there soon
enough."

goyle staff, which will publish the faces and his-
tories of the ten most beautiful girls on the
Campus in the January edition, was trying to
pick the tenth nominee from a group of can-
didates. It simmered down to three girls, with
one apparently out of the race. Ogden Dwight
flipped a coin and as he flipped it, Gil Tilles
yelled over, "If it stands on end it's ... No. 3.
The nickel rolled under a cabinet and wedged
itself upright. Tilles had to back down and Wal-
ker Graham is still screaming, "We wuz robbed."
He certainly is a great scholar. More books have
come from his pen than from other members
of that department. He has received worldwide
disincticn frem a great international organiza-
tion and last summer was honored by the Quesen
of Helland. What is mere he is the type of
person that can present his learning orally in
a very interesting manner. He is a fine speaker.
If I were taking History 11 over again he would
be my choice and no adviser could influence me

otherwise.
Let's make cur outstanding men stand out.
Let's tell our freshmen the truth. There is a his-
tory department of 16 men, not just one, and
there are three lecture sections for History 11.

Comment On The Court
To the Editor:
While there is no need of abolishing either the
Constitution or the Supreme Court, it may be
worth noting that Prof. Charles A. Beard, promi-
nent historian, great thinker and equally great
liberal, has characterized the recent adverse de-
cisions of the Supreme Court (6 to 3; 5 to 4)
"economic predilection." When so outstanding a
writer expresses such an opinion, it is worth
thinking about. --M. Levi.
Forgot To Talk
To the Editor:
A fine tribute was paid the members of Play
Production Saturday night, although one that
they may not have been able to see. When
"Bury the Dead" was over, the members of the
audience were so busy thinking that they forgc_
to talk and filed out of the theater as quietly
as if they had been in the presence of the dead
themselves. - Satisfied Customer

THE PAINTINGS by Edgar Yaeger

exemplify two points in art not al-

the strong element of artifice which
each of the arts relies upon for pro-
ducing its effects-sometimes more,
sometimes less in evidence-a quality
of which the man in the street is
blissfully ignorant, and of which, if he
has chanced to hear of it he has an
immediate distrust; and the kind of
observance of artistic tradition which
French art has so notably displayed
in its various departments, and whichI
is one source of its great continuity
and strength, but which has not al-
ways been observable elsewhere,

picture-making and their felicitous

solution will smile with pleasure at
the happy distortions and simplifi-
cations of these paintings. And if
the artifice which cements them is at
times a bit apparent, no damage has
been done: it is simply another
charming example of the never-suf-
ficiently understood fact that art is
art, and never nature-as so many
people fondly suppose.t
As to the painter's habit of remain-
ing within the bounds of a tradition,
there is a prejudice against that in a
hworld where change has become the
custom and not the exception, and in
which mere individualism, if not
downright eccentricity, is rated higher
than it deserves to be. But it is the
mark of some sort of esthetic com-
ing of age when we can have artists
about us not only bursting bounds
and exploring new territory, but also
quietly cultivating their gardens on
ground that has already been re-
claimed from the wilderness. Mr.
Yaeger's art is of thewlatter sort, and
while there may be some who find
his box-hedges and shell-bordered
flower-beds a little prim and unad-
venturous, the reminder is after all!
