making each student realize that he fI
gets out of the course just as much as
he puts into it.=
But the real reform comes from the
students themselves. There are hun- E
dreds of upperclassmen in every uni-
versity who have had experiences and
thoughts which no one else in the class
has had. If they would only speak
out fearlessly, they would add much
to the oft-neglected intellectual part of
college- If these men and women
would talk, they would not be thought
less of among the other members of
the class. Such a spirit of vital inter-
est in the class room develops in-
tellectual curiosity which means much
to a university and its students. The
atmosphere of intellectual curiosityw
has helped many a leader develop.

FREE SPEECH IN THE CLASS ROOM
The "Crabbers' row" consists of sev-
eral students in a certain quiz section.
They seldom recite except when called
upon, and then they try to act modest
about it. When anyone else in the
room recites with unusual originality
or non-conformity, these several stu-
dents turn around and stare at the
speaker. They are the Crabbers' row,
and have to do that, they think.
There are many crabbers' rows.
Often unorganized, for they are kin-
dred spirits scattered all about class
rooms of many campuses. Some snick-
er as well as stare. Often a person
hardly dares to say anything original
and something that would add to the
discussion, because of the specter of
many necks turning in unison. This is
one big source of a perennial com-
plaint that there is more freedom of
speech in Russia than there is in an
Faculty men can do much to break
up the crabbers' rows. They can put
the discussion into an atmosphere of
greater familiarity and informality,
See things. There is no other way
of getting the best out of life with
such a degree of success.' The man
who sees things takes advantage of
his opportunities and accomplishes his
plans. We of poor eyesight are likely
to say that such a man was lucky in
being in the right place when the right
opportunity appeared. The truth is,
he was able to see things.
One of the charges brought against
men who have a college education is
that they have been trained to under-
stand books, but have not learned to
notice with accuracy the practical
hitngs of the workaday world. They
say (the men who find fault with col-
leges) that few college men really see
things until they have been out in the
world for years.
This charge ought not to be true
against any man. First of all, he
should be taught to observe what is
going on about him. Then as he grows
older.twhether or not he has a college
education, he will be able to make the
best of his environment. One must see
things. to accomplish anything of

CARSON GIVES OPINION
CLASS ELECTION QUESTION
SHOULD BE DISCUSSED BY STU-
DENTS, SAYS SENIOR.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The issues which recently came be-
fore the student council in the case
of the senior law election have brought
up again the old question of elec-
tioneering on the campus. This ques-
tion will probably soon come before
the council for decision. Believing
that the principle involved is impor-
tant in student government, I wish to
explain the issue as I understand it,
and to urge some expression of opin-
ion on the part of the student body.
At the present time, rather by in-
formal agreement than by binding
rule, the student council, as the body
in charge of class elections, provides:
"There shall be no campaigning for
office, whether in the form. of election
cards, personal solicitation, solicita-
tion by friends, or in any other man-
ner whatsoever." This means that
every form of political expression-an
appeal for votes on merit, as well as
plain bribery-it outlawed; that such
will be guarded against by the council-
man in charge of the balloting, and, if
brought on appeal before the council,
will invalidate the election. This rul-
ing, laid down about 1912, has not
been enforced. The question now is
whether it is desirable to attempt to
enforce it, and whether it really can
There are two alternatives: (1)
work up student sentiment to demand
a strict application of the rule as it
stands, forbidding any political ac-
tivity in class elections; (2) modify
the present rule so that open discus-
sion and an appeal for votes strictly
on merit, shall be lawful. The first
course will require unusual*efforts,
and, if not carried out strictly, will
invariably injure the conscientious
candidate. The second course, if mis-
understood, may let down the bars to
all sorts of evil practices in class elec-
tions. The first course applies a prin-
ciple which is undeniably ideal. The

second, by imposing on campus elec-
tions the same conditions that obtain
in elections outside, is a training in
citzenship. One or the other of these
courses must soon be adopted def-
The . important thing is that there
should be a representative expression
of opinion on this question. Juniors
and seniors should get into touch with
their , councilmen; underclassmen
should either reach a councilman of
their department, or express them-
selves briefly through The Daily. It
is not so material what course is
adopted, provided that course has a
preponderance of sentiment behind it.
