Legislature Parties

RATHER BEGRUDGINGLY the Student
Legislature voted last week to permit
students to form parties in the coming
election to fill 23 Legislature vacancies.
Opponents of the party system appear
to have overlooked the chief argument for
a party system: the introduction of a sense
of responsibility to the student body on the
part of the Legislature. Instead, they see
only the potentialities of a fraternity-in-
dependent split.
Permitting students to form parties in
these elections and to perpetuate them is
both an aid to the individual student vot-
'er and in the long run to the campus as
a whole.
Platforms of individual candidates in the
coming election can have relatively little
significance since under the present sys-
tem anyone can promise anything and af-

ter he is once elected, evade responsibility.
Only a permanent party system can cor-
rect this weakness. The Legislature's bas-
ic function is to serve the students and
the greatest problem of the student body
is to select those individuals who are most
capable and willing to really work to make
the Legislature a strong student voice on
the campus.
A permanent party system will require
the parties to select those students who
will function most satisfactorily on the
Legislature and thus reflect to the cred-
it of the party. If its members play a
leading role in the constructive activi-
ties of the Legislature, an appreciative
student body can be expected to support
that party's candidates in future semes-
ters. Knowing that their parties face
extinction if their representatives prove
to be duds, the party will strive to put
forth the best possible slate.
On this campus, where the individual is
submerged in the mass of 18,000 odd stu-
dents, the party system is a valuable aid to
the selection of an effective Student Legis-
lature and should be encouraged.

Matter of Motivation

MAN TO MAN:
Lewis Opinioni
By HAROLD L. ICKES
'UTTING THROUGH the lush legal
verbiage of the majority. the dissent-
ing, the concurring and the partly con-
curring and partly dissenting opinions of
the Supreme Court in the John L. Lewis
case, which was handed down last Thurs-
day, we discover:
First, that under supposed "federal op-
eration" the coal miners of the country
(and this must have surprised them great-
ly) are Government employees.
Second, that as Government employees
they are not protected by the Norris-La-
Guardia Act, passed in 1930 (ante New
Deal) which forbids the granting of an
injunction by a federal court on the ap-
plication of an employer against strikers.
(At the time that this act was passed,
there was no power in the Government to
take over an industry to keep it running
for war purposes, and such a possibility
was undoubtedly beyond the range of the
imagination. The Norris-LaGuardia Act
could scarcely have been intended to ocv-
er such an unheard-of and unimaginable
situation.
And, third, that it does not make any
difference, whether the Norris-LaGuardia
Act applies anyhow.
In sum, the country is back to the
malodorous days of "government by in-
junction." Or, at least we have one foot
across the line and the other on a ban-
ana peel.
With all of the respect that is due to
the Supreme Court, I may be so bold as
to say that this decision does no credit
either to the legal learning or the states-
manship of that high tribunal. One might
pass over the flamboyant and extrava-
gant language and behavior of Mr. Jus-
tice Goldsborough in the District Court,
but that the Supreme Court should have
been infected by his hysteria is an alarm-
ing indication of the degree to which the
Court will permit itself to heed public
clamor.
The Government does not own the mines
nor does it lease them; it has invested no
public funds in them; no profits accrue to
the public treasury from their operation;
there has been no change in mine manage-
ment; the miners work under customary
conditions, subject to their usual super-
visory employees, for those who continue
to own and operate the mines.
It is not a great strain upon a keen le-
gal mind, after determining what results
it wants, to discover reasons to suttain
that result. When this cannot be done by
fact, it can be done by fiction, as it often
has been throughout the history of the
law. So, in this case, the Court relied up-
on the fiction that the miners were Gov-
ernment employees plus the further fiction
that, therefore, they did not come within
the Norris-LaGuardia Act. Here is an in-
stance where two fictions begot a fantasy.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

I:

.1

O DENY fraternities and sororities is
to deny the right to select friends and
to deny the small groups found in every
phase of life, from a small office force to
large dormotories to cliques in a body of
factory hands.
Facing the superficial facts of social
life, almost every activity, job, party or
what-have-you is based on a process of
selection or rejection. Each person is
subjected to it and, in return, subjects
everyone he meets to scrutiny of one sort
or another. On this basis, small groups
of students selecting people to live with-
fraternity brothers, room-mates-are not
such an insult to society and democracy,
but merely the wide-open performance
of one of its natural processes.
Students agree to subject themselves to
rushing selection or rejection because small-
er groups in a homelike atmosphere seem
to make for more congeniality than is
found in the numerous tight, conflicting
cliques in dormitories. Perhaps, the ans-
wer then to the inevitable disappointments
for those who want to join Greek socie-
ties, but just can't be accommodated, is
for the University to provide the smaller
living units which seem to be wanted.
More League houses will not provide the
answer. The owners are professional land-
lords in the majority of cases and their in-
terest in the University extends little far-
ther than their tenants official relation-
ship with it.
In addition to providing a desirable form

of housing, the Greeks are a strong, organ-
ized, force on campus. It takes push to get
things done, and an organized push is usu-
ally strongest. n Each house has a little-
publicized philanthropic project, which they
strongly support and on the whole manage
very well.
S, THEY DO serve a useful function on
this campus and throughout the coun-
try. What is the chief complaint then?
Emphasis should fall on motives here,
rather than methods or functions. The
focal point within too many of the hous-
es tend1s to fall not on what service they
can do, but rather on what service they
have to do to increase or maintain pres-
tige on campus.
The tendency is present, and increasing-
ly so, for the Greeks to completely legis-
late the extra-curricular and social lives of
their members. No social event should ever
be made so important that it would be
worth threatened fines and penalties to
miss it. And certainly, no service is going
to be really well done if it is carried out
purely in the spirit of selfish gain.
Rather than abolishing a system which
provides excellent housing and good social
life, it seems that the changes should be
made within the houses themselves. The
motivation, both in rushing and out, should
rise from their function as purely social
and philanthropic groups rather than a
desire to become "one of the top houses on
campus."

Subsistence Pay,
To the Editor: s
MR LaRUE'S LETTER in the;
March 4 Daily, made me thinkE
of an old song that begins. "O,1
the world owes me a living." For1
a brief moment I hesitated in writ-
ing this, for most of his letter ap-,
peared to be a beautiful satire
on increased subsistence. But I
believe he means it.
My two brothers and I are vet-
erans too, so I appreciate all Mr.
LaRue went through during the
war.uLike mostheveryone else my
meager savings haven't held up'
well, and I'm working on those
precious weekends to make up the
difference between expenses and
Uncle Sam's handout. Sure it's
tough sometimes, but unless there
are veterans who have to drop out
of school because of financial
troubles, I can't see a real rea-
son for bleeding the country much
further. If a man is sincerely de-
sirous of continuing his studies,
I think he'll find some way to stay
with it. And there's the old bogey
of all hk Lcving to be 1,id tac,
some day according to the eco-
nomic situation it helps bring
about, so why make it hard on
yourself ?
What is this college training
for? If, as I believe, it is to teach
us skills, to teach us to think bet-
ter, and to help us to become self-
reliant, contributing members of
our society; letting the govern-
ment assume the whole burden is
certainly a poor accompaniment.
When your education time expires,
suddenly having the entire support
removed will be quite a jolt.
Don't misunderstand me; I'm in.
favor of and thankful for the G.I.
Bill. Butan increased burden on
our government, and the absolute
lack of self-reliance in a man don't
justify the ease a few more golden
eggs might bring. There are some
unfortunates in other countries
who wish their governments could
give them a slice of bread.

Scratch Past,
To the Editor:
N REGARD to your column,
..The City Editor's Scratch
Pad," of March 5 'cncerning sor-
orities and fraternities: The Daily
has taken the usual attitude of the
so-caled "liberals" to anything
which they feel is social injustice,
that is "If John Doe can have it
and I can't, then let s take it away
from John Doe." Have you ever
considered the alternative view-
point of "Why can't I have it,
too." For example, existing facili-
ties both in size, and in number
of organizations, are too small for
the greatly enlarged enrollment
of the University, yet no fratern-
ity dares expand or organize un-
less they have some assurance that
they can continue in the face of
the dorms the University is build-
ing, and which it will probably try
to fill with fraternity men when
the room shortage eases up.
On the other hand, Northwest-
ern University has, within the last
year. invited four new fraternities
to organize because, in the words
of the school itself, with the in-
creased enrollment the university
administration feels that fratern-
ities and sororities are inadequate-
ly represented in the student body.
At Purdue University. before the
war, there were 36 national fra-
ternities and 8 sororities for an
enrollment of 6,500, a sufficiently
high proportion that any man or
woman who wished to belong, and
who possessed the qualifications of
cleanliness, politeness, and a re-
cognizable degree of intelligence,
(the sole basis in which I and a
majority of other men judge rush-
ees), could join a fraternity.
To elaborate on the latter state-
ment, I have lived in fraternities
both prewar and postwar, and I
have never yet heard the questions
asked concerning a rushee "What
does his father do?" or "Is his
family wealthy?" It is expected
that a man entering a fraternity
will be able to assume the neces-
sary expenses, which have been, in
my own case, equal to, or slightly
less than they were when I lived
in the dorm or i a rooming house.
I have known, for example, two
men who were fraternity brothers
in the same class, and were the
best of friends. One man's father
owned the factory in which the
other man's father was janitor.
By actual count about one-third
of my present fraternity brothers
state that they could not afford
to go to college without the GI.
Bill, and approximately one-fifth
are working at least part time. So
much for "social discrimination."
S *
Last but not least, The Daily's
penchant for distorting the facts
does no good whatsoever. To wit,
The Daily's report of the accept-
ance of Alpha Phi Alpha, the Ne-
gro fraternity, by the I.F.C. was
worded to give the impression
that it was only accepted after
The Daily articles on discrimina-
tion by the I.F.C. had appeared.
My impression was that the fra-
ternity first petitioned the I.F.C.
during the war, when many fra-
ternities were inactive, and that
they were asked to withhold their
petition until after the war. A
check with the I.F.C. will show
that their second petition was
immediately accepted when pre-
sented after the war and before
The Daily articlesappeared. Other
examples are numerous.
How about presenting and pub-
lishing this one letter in defence
of fraternities, just for a change?

Group Living

CURRENT
MOVIES

THE "EXPERIMENT in group living" as
carried out at the Chi Phi Lodge and
described in the City Editor's Scratch Pad
of last Friday, is not an isolated example of
a successful non-Greek, small house set-up
at the University.
The large number of independent women
who moved into fraternity houses during the
war had proved earlier that they could make
a go of small scale group living. The women,
living twenty to forty in a house, enjoyed
all the advantages of an intimate, friendly
atmosphere without the further embellish-
ments of secret symbols and special selection
procedures.
The only drawbacks to the University-
converted fraternity houses were the tem-
porary nature of the set-up, the loss of
dormitory room priorities, and the fact
that the University was still very much in
control. However, two groups of women
even managed to overcome this latter
difficulty.
With permission from the Dean's office,
the groups rented fraternity houses on their
own. One was supervised by a young gradu-
ate student with help from a committee of
women living in the house, the other by a
housemother hired by the women. The orig-
inal members of both groups were the wo-
MATTER OF FACT:

men who had gotten together and formu-
lated the idea. Subsequent members, who
filled the places of graduates, had either
visited the houses informally or heard about
them from others and applied by letter.
Their names were placed on a waiting list
until' openings occurred, with time of appli-
cation the only preference. That both houses
managed to succeed without reverting to
sorority methods of selection is not as re-
markable as that they cost less than most
sororities, coming close to dormitory rates.
There is no question that a home-like
atmosphere is preferable to dormitory ex-
istence. But the sororities and fraternities
have taken a basically good thing and
rigged it into a center of social discrimi-
nation. By building themselves up to
gain campus prestige and the "right kind
of members" they have put themselves on
a pedestal of superiority and destroyed the
sisterly and brotherly atmosphere they
were created to disseminate.
It is hoped that before another war the
independents will be given their second
chance to show that plain, non-discrimina-
tory friendship may be a real basis for
harmonious group living.

James Stewart, Donna Reed
FRANK CAPRA and Jimmy Stewart re-
turn to the public in a Capra-Stewart
picture that is just a trifle bigger than the
old ones used to be. It's nice to have them
back. Capra has the unique faculty in
Hollywood of filling his movies with human
beings instead of actors and extras. Be-
ing faced with their own kind so stuns
audiences that .they climb aboard his emo-
tional roller-coaster and enjoy every sec-
ond of it. From the minute the camera
centers on "Bedford Falls" it's a Capra pic-
ture all the way. The guardian angel fan-
tasy angle is introduced smoothly enough
and Capra's great faith in the goodness of
the common man in evident throughout.
Donna Reed is one of the prettiest girls in
movies and James Stewart the easiest-go-
ing leading man. Both cast and director
obviously enjoy and believe in their work.
Unless it makes you uncomfortable to be
bounced between laughter and tears, you'll
think "It's a Wonderful Life" a wonderful
picture.

TILL THE CLOUDS ROLL BY starts with
a flash-back, catches up with itself
and keeps on rolling for two hours and fif-
teen minutes. In that time the Mississippi
could provide more entertainment, but
probably not as good music. This time the
composer in question (Jerome Kern) does
not even encounter the usual pitfalls of
every glamorized musician. Since nothing
is substituted for the pitfalls, the so-called
action of the show is rather dull. Van
Heflin is good as usual, but his worth seems
rather pointless in an otherwise uninspir-
ed cast. Kern's music is elaborately stag-
ed and always good to listen to.

Somebody13 luntdered

By STEWART ALSOP
EHRAN, March 9-If the Russian at-
tempt to capture Iran during the last
year is any criterion, the Russians are high-
ly incompeteit imperialists. For Iran has
been a sort of laboratory experiment in
the new Soviet technique of expansion. And
according to competent observers here who
watched the whole performance from be-
ginning to end, the Russians bungled the
job. They bungled it in a number of ways.
Their worst mistake was their first, when
they failed to withdraw their troops by the
treaty date. This perfectly overt viola-
tion of a treatv tinned the Russian hand.

According to first-hand evidence, there was
not a really able man in the whole lot, with
the possible exception of Jafar Pishevari,
the puppet-Premier, and Daneshyan, the
army commander. Yet not the cleverest pro-
paganda could well have offset the basic
Soviet blunder. They were playing for big
stakes. Yet they failed to back their in-
vestment. They supplied Pishevari and his
fellow stooges with arms, but only in ex-
change for wheat, sugar and other goods
paid for at fixed low prices with printing
press money. There was misery in Azer-
baijan, and real discontent.
