ALL "A" STUDENTS
Thirty-six students were successful
in maintaining an all "A" average
during the second semester of the
regular winter session of school which'
recently closed, according to «a re-
port given out by the recorder's of-
flce. Congratulation and a great deal

tion has increased.
Ih isfight Governor Green charges
that the time for reapportionment is
long past due. Congress' indifferent
attituide is a tflagfant violation of the
Constitutiam. Inasmuch as the inter-
ests of the smaller states are amply
safeguarded through the provision that
entitles them to two members in the
Senate, it seems reasonable to expect
the smaller states to lend their sup-
port to reapportionment legislation'
although some of them might suffer
the loss of one or more representa-
tives in the House of Representa-
tives.
The -state of Michigan faced a simi-
lar situation in the matter of reappor-
tionment when the legislature of 1919'
failed to reapportion the state. After
several unsuccessful fights, the legis-
lature of 1925 finally passed the reap-
portionment bill which entitled the
more populous districts to their just
representation.
THE VICE PRESIDENCY
With the call to order yesterday of
the Democratic National convention,
the interest of the nation now turns
from the Republican spectacle recent-
ly closed at Kansas City to the politi-
cal jamtbouree at Houston. Although
the question cf presidential nomina-
tion is of major importance, paralleled
perhaps. with the work of drafting a
party platform, the selection of a
nominee for vice president is also of
pa a mount importance. The example
set at the Kansas City convention in
the selection of an able vice presiden-
tial nominee is a safe one, and it is
hoped that the delegates at. Houston
f llow suit.
At times political conventions have
been prone to overlook the importance
of the office of vice president. It has
,been regarded too frequently as a.
grave yard for those aspiring to be-
come president, and as such the office
has not had the appeal to forward

students wlho attained their highj
standards in this way as being keen in
their judgment of ways to avoid over-
work, but they are hardly to be lauded
as scholars par excellence.
And then there are those students
who take time only to eat, sleep, and
go to classes away from their study
tables. They may be commended as
being ambitious, but rather narrowly.1
They do not make the best of the
opportunities which are afforded by
the Uxndversity and its life to broaden
themselves by contact with objective
influences, people and activities. A
full life at college is all that will
,add the polish, refinement, and ease
of manner which is popularly known
as "college breeding." It is the term
given to an intangible something for
which the college graduate is sup-
posed to be respected because it in-
eludes both academic and social
knowledge, and it is something for
which every student should strive.
REAPPORTIONMENT
Governor Green's fight before the
- resolutions committee of the Republi-
can national convention to include in
the Republican platform a plank
which favored the reapportionment of
representatives in Congress is a com-
mendable one. The Michigan gover-
nor-has refused to remain quiet in his
appeal to give each state of the union
its equal and just representation in
the lower house of Congress, and it is
to be hoped that the next adminis-
tration will render it's support to the
reapportionment plant.
The Constitution expressly states
that "representatives shall be appor-
tioned among the several states which
may be included within this Union
according to their respective num-
bers." It further stipulates that re-
apportionment shall take pliace every
ten years to afford proper represen=-
tation to those states whose popula-

those of the Republican vice presiden-
tial nominee the nation will have lit-
tle t> fear in event grave misfortune
should befall the winning presidential
candidate.
EDITORIAL COMMENT
THRILL FICTION
A statement made. recently by a
Washington . newsdealer gives us
pause. According to this vendor of all
types of literature, sensational fiction
and journalistic products, adventure
and cheap fiction stories are the most
popular with college students and
ninety per cent of these are bought
by co-eds. The Confession' and True
Story type of magazine head the list
of this cheap fiction. This assertion
is rather difficult to understand and
I one wonders whether it is universally
true throughout colleges today.
Certainly it is not unaccountable
that the comparatively uneducated and
uncritical, who have been exposed to
nothing better and could not appre-
ciate it if they had the chance should
thrive on a diet of two-bit sensationals
(one might say "sensuals" without
deviating from the truth). Nor is it
impossible that college students should
taste of all that the news stand has
to offer. An experience of that sort
is broadening. But it is hard to even
guess why undergraduates who are at
least supposed to be developing a taste
in literature give steady patronage
stories cast .from the same mold by
uninspired and inferior writers.
No explanation can be offered for
such preference for thrill fiction, if the
preference does exist. Nevertheless,
one thought may be added. Speaking
paradoxically, 0. O. McIuntyre, tells
that he once saw a Countess scanning
the pages of the "Police Gazette"
through her lorgnette while her chauf-
feur was absorbed in "The Atlantic
Monthly." One half is always won-

But this Rea fellow furnishes
the silver lining to the black cloud
cast by the bemoaned departure of
Emtery, tke student's friend.. He is
a very clever mal, and he pom -
ises to furnish just as much fui
to the boys as his predecessor
did.

Rea is the man who was made fa-
mous in North Phlegmn, Michigan.
When a traffic cop there called, "Hey,
Rea." he is reported to have retorted
(note the pote), "Do' Re Mi, boy!"
It is men like this that the

Mr. Rea vehemently denies that he
has any connection with the down
town theater emporium that bears his
name.
"In fact," said Mr. Rea, "I am hear-
tily in' disfavor with movies, since they
afford pleasure for students. Al-
though"--he shyly added with a blush
-"I'm just nuts about Sue Carrol."
