AN OPEN LETTER TO A LITTLE
LADY IN 9:30 POLITICAL
In reply to yours of 9:30 Political
Science 51, I wish to state that
think that you were just a wee bit
outspoken in your remarks concern
ing our illustrious senator ROBERT
REYNOLDS In plain and simple
language, I don't think that you Taiew
what you were talking about. You
asked. "If the senate has such a free
hand in determining who shall enter
it's doors as members, why then, does
it allow Robert Reynolds in as a mem
ber." That. was a very rash display
of ignorance. It is quite obvious that
you did not know what you were talk
ing about and it is just as obvious
that you are a member of that ob
noxious party popularly known as
Republicans. I suggest that you look
at the record of Mr. Reynolds in the
Congressional Record for the past
few years. You might be a, wee bit
enlightened as to what "Our "Bob"
has done for his state and nation.
You might even be just 'a little
ashamed. You also stated that you
did not like . his . hair. Lady, the
gentleman is bald. How can you not
like his hair if he does not have any
hair to not like? You .also stated
that you did not like anything about
him. So what? I have an auto
graphed picture of Bob kissing the
late Jean Harlow on the steps of the
Capitol Building. He seems to be
doing very well even without your
affections. So in closing, dear lady,
wish to implore you not to express
yourself so freely and fanatically as
you did in your Thursday morning
class. You might receive something
more than a series of hisses.
"Our Bob" is a fine gentleman,
"Our Bob" is a good senator,
"Our Bob" is wonderful,"
"Our Bob" is a good friend of mine,
"Our Bob" is my uncle..:

For Added Pee : C -y:
The mere mention of raising
fees collected by the University
should immediately arouse ... in
terest on the part of those affect
ed. The persons who are called
on to pay should decide whether
or not the expenditure will be
beneficial. The class or organiza
tion receiving the fee should
first decide if the expenditure is
justified. And the University ad
ministration, as the collecting
agency and the agency charged
with the responsibility of pro
tecting the interests of the stu
dents, should exercise a great
deal of caution.
With this set of rules laid
down, we may inspect the sopho

It was suggested last spring
that this year's sophomore class
adopt the policy of second-year
classes in other universities and
have individual pictures in. the
yearbook. The sophomore class
officers discussed the plan, sound
ed out interest in the class, and
received the assent of the class
executive committee. They thus
filled their part of the obliga
tions set forth above.
The matter was put to aclass
vote, and, with student govern
ment officials present to super
vise the vote, a majority of mem
bers decided they were willing to
pay the additional fee for the
sake of individual pictures. Class
members voted on themselves a
Wary about hiking class fees
(the trustees having in the past
threatened to clamp down on
fee-collecting) the University ad
ministration hesitated to per
form its function of collection.
An investigation was begun.
After it had been established
that the vote last spring had
been legitimate, a' committee of
students was appointed to inves
tigate some other possible way
of providing pictures without a
general class fee. On the com
mittee were Jack Vincent, chair

From force of precedent, se
niors have long accepted the
misery which accompanies these
examinations as something axio
matic, just as they have learned
to expect quizzes on Monday

Now, -however, it appears that
the administration is making a
few alterations in the conditions
surrounding these quizzes.
Whether these changes are for
the ultimate good or harm to the
student is still an open question.
At any rate, one modification
of comprehensive plans that
which broadens the scope of the
examinations deserves praise.

No longer will English majors,

poets or the influence of acute
alcoholism upon Poe's "Raven."
Under the new system, they will

Another variation in condi
tions is less praise-worthy. Se
niors will not be permitted to
register for more than three full
courses during the quarter in
which they take their compre-
hensives. On the face of it, this
would appear to be a very wise
move, at least irom a iacuity
viewpoint. Of course, reasons the
professor, no senior can possibly
be so well aware of his abilities
and limitations that he will real
ize the folly of overloading him
self, thereby making it impos
sible for him topass his compre
hensive. In some cases, the pro
fessor may be entirely correct. It
is our opinion, however, tha't he
may more often be wrong. Espe
cially is he wrong in assuming
that any three full courses are
equally hard for all the students
who take them. Suppose, profes
sor, that it is impossible for a
senior to graduate if he takes
only fifteen hours during one of
the two following quarters. (This
is no hypothetical case, inci
dentally, for there are a number
of seniors here who face , that
possibility). Say,' if you will, that
those in question should not have
fallen behind in their work. That
won't help to put' a diploma in
the hands of those seniors, some
of whom lost hours by illness or
transfer. Won't you make an ex
ception in such cases?
If you will, comprehensives
will no longer so nearly resemble
the Black Plague as they have in

Time Magazine, never in my opinion
a crusading angel of liberal might,
acts a little like an indulgent father
this week. After 35 pages of "im

parental possessieness and condes
cension at tbe youth of the nation, and

the little men, who are the editors of
various college papers, are pretty em
phatic about keeping out of war. State
ments from a great many campuses, in
cluding our own, differ only in degree
of anti-war spirit. The collegiate mind
of America, as selected and presented
by Time, comes out of its usual morass
of gossip and patterns to at last take
a very unified stand on the matter of
That there was a unanimity of anti
war feeling is not important just now.
This feeling is shared by, most of, the
nation. It is a very natural reac
tion to a most justif ible fear. But

if there is a fatal "M" Day in America.
And of course if war and draft and
death come then all of these little ef
forts of ourafwill be "Full of -sound and

has died on this campus. It's evident
in the regular courses being taken, in
the plans one overhear's at bull ses

have hope for the normal life that is
supposed to be ours as a birthright of
the ages. And if our, voices are no

nerience and learning, tney are at

the anti-war spirit of America, as it 0r reason will be out of style. The
stands now, is only a temporary thing
born of emotionalism. We, as yet,
see only the reaction and pulling away
from the catastrophe whose coat-tails
we have been riding. Passing of days
and return to normal life and the
slow torturous tension of the inter
ested spectator may produce a differ
ent tale. And this, not now when we are
the anemic echo of a nation, is where
the voice of youth comes in,
Now, yesterday a professor told me
that my columns were overemphasiz

in the next war. He said that all peo

way, then in another." Unfortunately

weak and impotent tnat word is we
will have to fight the "one way" that
finds itself in actual combat. In the
words of one of the disillusioned poets
of the last war, we are the too young
who would too soon die. - -
In former days, some of us million
or more college students have lamented
the seclusion of our lives. Now it
may become a blessing. For now we
may look into the world and face of
the America about us and watch the
war tides as they approach More or
less free from economic drive which
creeps into each corner of each day
outside, we can face the thought of war
with almost clear minds. We can re-

view eacn c.ay new causes ana ar

we can continue to have our say.

ber of an artificial aristocracy of
muscle chasing the tail end of a muti

which we ourselves will .play in this
game. We may either drag out our old
boy scout uniform or we may lean back
and shout defiance at the 'pseudo-
patriotics who come after us.
No one, including Time Magazine,
is going to ask our advice if war really
comes. But they will have to hear us
in the days to come if we really get
together and make a lot of noise. And
with plenty of time to think, our girl's
picture on our desk, the filthy issues
of imperialism as clean cut as they
are, we ought to be pretty intelligent
about what we shout.

unheard the fault will not be ours. But
