DEMOCRACY IN ATHLETICS
Yes, Captain Carroll was first.
Michigan's snowing against Syra-
cuse in the recent cross country meet
serves to emphasize a long standing
truism. A Michigan runner won.
Syracuse runners were second, third,
fourth and fifth. Thus a Michigan man
won the race, but Syracuse won the
meet. The honors therefore went to
The Maize and Blue usually possess-
es a handful of real stars but she often
lacks the second, third, fourth and
fifth place men. These second, third,
fourth, and fifth place men are the ones
that count. Consult the records, if you
doubt this. Cornell's championship
track team of 1914 took just one first
place in the intercollegiate s. Forty of
her 45 points were contributed by sec-
ond, third, fourth and fifth place men.
These men won the meet. Stars can
not win unsupported.
The cross country team needs more
material. In order to absolve Michi-
gan from the accusation of having an
aristocracy and not a democracy of
athletes, a bigger number of men
should heed the calls of the managers.
Michigan needs and needs badly these
second, third, fourth and fifth place
third, fourth and fifth place men.

SCORES PEANUT POLITICS
SENIOR LAW SAYS EXISTENCE IS
DUE PROFESSIONAL SOCIETIES
WHO HOG OFFICES.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
"Peanut Politics" was the subject of
an editorial in Tuesday's Daily, in
which the senior law class was held
up as a glowing example of political
rottenness. As a member of this class,
I wish to join the Daily editor in de-
ploring the condition which exists, not
only in my class, but in practically
every other organization upon the
Michigan campus; and to explain, if I
can, why this condition prevails.
The existence of "peanut politics" in
class elections is, in my opinion, due
primarily to the tendency of certain
professional fraternal organizations to
"hog" all the offices to which any of
their members may be eligible. I am
not against the fraternity spirit at all.
I believe it is a fine thing in itself. I
can see how it naturally leads to clan-
nishness, and a desire that its members
be given places of distinction in camp-
us life. The brotherly feeling is good;
but when it takes the form of domina-
tion of the majority by the minority,
because of the superior organization
of that minority, it becomes a menace
to the spirit of democracy, which the-
oretically pervades Michigan atmos-
phere; and shouldsnot be tolerated by
any man or woman interested in the
future of Michigan.
It is a matter of common knowledge
in my class, I believe, that it has al-
ways been dominated by the fraternity
steam-roller. Independents have de-
plored the condition, but have never
made a concerted effort to stop the
thing until the election this year,
which has been set aside-as to the vote
on the nominees for president, only,
which resulted in a tie-because it
was shown that that vulture, "peanut
politics," had reared its head again.
Why the whole election should not
have been annulled, as there is little
doubt that the odor of "peanuts"
permeated every part of it, if it existed
anywhere, is explained by the fact
that the student council has the pow-
er to set aside an election in part or
as to the whole. If the student coun-
cil possesses this power, the writer
for one, should like to see it exercised

unless it comes with the gradual real-

I have no quarrel with the profess-

ever, it has seemed to me that the
fraternities are largely at fault in this
matter. I do not oppose any appear-
ance of "peanuts" in politics, whether
it emanates from the fraternity man
or independent; but I fail to see any
way of stopping it unless all unite in
denouncing it; and, what is far more
important, practicing what they
