AMERICAN SWI MERS
Ten or fifteen years ago, swimming
in America was a pastime rather than
a sport; today, the Americans stand
out as the leading swimmers of the
world, for in the Olympics at Les
Tourelles, the Americans walked away
serenely in thirteen out of seventeen
events.
This situation has been mainly due
to the added stimulus of interest in
the municipal pools of our various
cities, and our leading mermen and
mermaids instead of coming almost
entirely from the Atlantic coast, are
drawn impartially from our far-flung
nation.
Count Clary, presenting the medals
for this sport, is reported to have said,
"This looks like an American holi-
day." The Americans had scored a
total of 217 points, Sweden was sec-
ond with 58, and Great Britn and
Australia were third and fourth re-
spectively. Eleven other nations were
included in the list of "also rans'
At Stockholm, the Americans scor-
ed but two first places in the aquatic
events-at Les Tourelles the only
firsts that were secured besides those
of the Americans were in the 150
meters, which was won by Australia,
and 'the 200 meter breast stroke for
women, won by an English girl'
But what is of the greatest signif-
icance is the fact that the time in
practically every event was much bet-
ter than in 1924 than in 1922. This
does not mean that the other nations
have retrogressed, it merely means
that America has stepped abreast of
the times in another important field of
sports.
LIBRARY SERVICE
Few institutions in Ann Arbor can
surpass the University Library in
equipment and certainly none of them
in effort to give efficient service. The
library staff deserves the helpful co-
operation of every one of its users.
They have a difficult task; to make a
limited number of copies of popular
or necessary books do for a large
number of applicants. Students some-
times thoughtlessly criticize the library
when they are unable to get two or
three books they need. It is in their
power to minimize this very difficulty
by their co-operation.
When a borrower charges a book
and takes it to his room he should ar-
range to do so only when he is ready
to read it, and he should proceed to
do so as soon as possible after he
gets the book. When finished, in-
stead of allowing it to lie about per-
haps until he receives an overdue
notice, he should see the books is at
once returned and thus allowed to get
into circulation,
It is probably a conservative guess
to assert that the majority of charged
books are kept by borrowers twice as
long as they are really needed.
This waste could, it would seem, be
cu in half wthri t h ffnr tnd

EDITORIAL COMMENT
PROGRESS AT LONDON
(The New York Times)
More than at any general European
conference in recent years the spirit
of achievement is in the air at Lon-
don. How much of this is due to the t
earnest desire of MacDonald and Her-
riot to reach an accord and how much
to the obviously strong pressure from
teh American representatives to bring
about a general compromise between
conflicting views, it would be hard to
decide. The delegates seem deter-
mined that this conference shall not
end in a deadlock and ae apparently
fully conscious of the fact that dis-
aster threatens Europe if the plans
for reconstruction are not soon put
into effect. The knowledge that Amer-
ica is actively supporting the Dawes
plan, and the surmise that the Repub-
lican administration is politically in-
terested in seeing it succeed, have
given special weight to harmonizing
suggestions from Ambassador Kellogg
and Colonel Logan.
Although details of what has been
accomplished to date are not yet avail-
able, it is known that such trouble-
some problems as safeguarding the
new loan to Germany and the matter
of sanctions have virtually been
settled. The evacuation of the Ruhr
still presents difficulties, although it
is unlikely that these are insoluble.
France and Belgium can hardly be ex-
pected to relinquish the advantages
of retaining a sufficiently large per-
sonnel in the occupied territories to
make it unnecessary to go through
the arduous difficulties which con-
fronted them in 1923, in case they are
obliged to reoccupy those regions. So
long as the body that remains in no
way interferes with the economic life
of the district, there is no reason why
it need hamper the reconstruction of
Germany.
Such a decision, however, would be
sure to enrage the Germans. They
have set their hearts on complete
evacuation of the Ruhr-every engi-
neer and every soldier. They are also
reported to be resentful of the pros-
peets that the right to apply penaltis
for non-fulfillment many include the
seizure of territory. Among their
politicians are those who say they
would prefer to see the Dawes plan
fail and take the consequences than
.iubmit to such an "indignity." But
the more sober elements among them
realize that these questions are de-
tails rather than fundamentals and
are willing to trust to an earnest ef-
ort to meet the terms and obligations
'A the Dawes plan as the best means
of protecting them from the political
evils which their more impetuous fel-
lows fear. To them the assurance of
the $200,000,000 loan is of paramount
'mportance and they welcome the
agreement reached among the Lon-

A CUMBERSOME NUISANCE
With the presidential election
looming on the horizon, and showing
every indication of being a very close
decision, the problem of formally de-
claring the cumbersome electoral-col-
lege system of presidential selection
nbsolete through the passing of a con-
stitutional amendment again presents
itself. Even among those who most
strongly oppose the alteration of the
present system which was inaugurat-
ed with the beginning of the republic,
there arenone who can deny the pos-
sibilities of unfair election results
so long as such an indirect method of"
balloting is practiced.
There can be no valid reason to con-
test the advisability of adopting a
constitutional revision providing for
the direct election of the chief ex-
ecutive when the first opportunity of-
fers. Although cases such as the
Tilden-Hayes campaign of 1876 and
the Cleveland-Harrison election of
1888 where the selction of the elec-
toral college awarded the office to
the man who under popular vote would
have been defeated are but seldom
existent, the possibility of the re-
occurrence of such incidents should
be completely removed. The present
day tendency of simplification in all
governmental organization calls for1
the elimination of this unnecessary
cog in the federal wheel, which mere-
ly delays the culmination of election
proceedings and occasionally works
an injustice upon the citizenry of the
land.
One defense which may be proposed
is the cumbersome nature of amend-
ing the constitution. This in itself
would only be a substantiation of the
attitude which has permitted the col-
lege to survive as long as it has, an
indifference to the systematic anal-
ysis of election evils. There is no
state in the Union which, in pursuit
of fairn elections, would defeat anI
amendment providing for popular
vote in the presidential eection. Many
do not realize that there is any such
intlermediate body as the electoral
college which acts as the final choos-
er of our executives. Any body so in-
consequential a factor in the pursuit
of just representative government
has no place among our intsitutiong.
Its powers are all for harm and none
for good,
