Blame Only the College Boys?
"K TATIONAL officers trying to enforce the prohibition act
have scored another success at the University of Michigan.
Five chapters of national fraternities have been put on proba
tion by officials of the University and the houses have been
ordered closed until September 1.
To analyze the affair ... a small amount of liquor was found
in each house and close to one hundred students were routed
out of bed and taken to the police station and later released on
their own recognition. The affair was given country-wide pub
licity. not because it was a large haul as hauls go, but because
of the college angle. College men are supposed to know belter.
The occasion for all of the liquor being on hand was the near
ness of the annual “J Hop." the largest dance of the year on
the Michigan campus. That the liquor was meant for consump
tion by members of the houses in whose possession it was found
is evident , . . there was not a sufficiently large quantity found
in any of the houses which would indicate that any of the men
were contemplating entering into bootlegging as a profession.
To come down to our point . . . while the federal agents
were planning this carefid coup on the fraternity chapters at
Michigan, the affair which has brought so much unfavorable
publicity to the organizations and to the institution, there were
undoubtedly several individuals in Ann Arbor or in the near
vicinity who were responsible' for supplying the liquor to the
men. These bootleggers would undoubtedly have much larger
stocks on hand and will continue to supply the unlawful bev- ,
erages to college men at Michigan.
It is the same old story of the federal men making a show
and, coming as it does, almost immediately after the Wicker
sham report, it makes the possibility of strict enforcement of
the national prohibition act even more remote.
If the officers had concentrated on capturing the person or
persons who supplied the liquor, there wouldn’t have been nearly
so much publicity forthcoming, but it would have stopped an
evil at its source. Members of the fraternities were breaking
the law by having liquor in their possession, but the bootleggers
arc guilty of an even more serious offense, and they should

In the Week’s News
OCHOLASTICALLY speaking, the announcement of the fait
^ term house grade ratings has been the crowning piece of
news during the past week. Some students were disappointed,
some pleaseti, ami others irked at little alleged discrepancies here
and there. Kappa Delta, women’s social fraternity, jumped from
fairly well down in the list and grabbed seat number 1. We
don’t mind seeing Friendly hall hold first place among the men’s
o.gunizations in fact, they deserve much credit, and we wish
them good luck in competition for the trophy.

Folks have been greatly grieved over the recent campus
deaths. Two students, brilliant, active, and well-liked, were
called shortly after (lie campus was shocked by the death of
Mrs. Lila Thatcher, Chi Omega housemother. Julia Creech, of
Salem, was known for leadership and enthusiasm iu her work.
The end came as her brilliant career was in infancy. It was
her time to go and fate must be left unchanged. Jack Blanch
ard, of Grants Pass, claimed the respect of all who knew him.
He was typical of American youth, tall and handsome. His
most ambitious plans for the future were called to a halt. He
will be missed. The Emerald offers its most sincere sympathies
to the parents and to the living organizations with which these
students were affiliated.
A friend to all, Bishop Sumner, of Oregon, in the Episcopal
diocese, is spending the week on the campus, llis annual visits
are eagerly looked forward to, and we hope he will continue
them many, many more years. A man so happy, so jovial, is
most refreshing to students in the midst of their academic activi
The Emerald v\ ishes unlimited prosperity to Pi Kappa Alpha
elect. Friendline: •, generosity, and courtesy mark the Alpha
Beta Chiu. Tho ■ assets, backed by a strong national organiza
tion, are bound to have skyrocketing effects. Good luck.

Again the campus is to be treated to tile best ill tlie.Tiuer
arts. Announcement was made last Thursday that the Port
land symphony orchestra will give a concert on the i ampin
here VVa -hington' birthday. February 2'Z. No person can find
a single element of injury m listening to wonderful music. To
elevate ideals and instill greater spiritual life into the soul, con
certs such as this are unsurpassed.

Oregon men and women sprout out tonight when they attend
the year's gala event, the Senior Ball. Perhaps it’s an excellent
chance for some of the students to display some of this “cul
ture" that they have been seeking.

A recent wrinkle in the ever
fascinating pastime of chastising
the most unruly of the freshmen
is now in the course of experimen
tation up around the A. T. O.
shanty. It seems that three of the
frosh managed to spend a goodly
(not godly) part of one evening
away from the house and now they
have formed the “Dawn Patrol,”
their chief duties consisting of
arising promptly at 5:30 each
morning and taking a few healthy
laps around Hayward field by way

weight could arise early and do

would be a splendid medium to
meet all the best people.

At Tennis Courts
IIETHER spring Is really
here or not, you can’t con
vince the tennis enthusiasts that
it’s not! Between 70 and 130
people play out on the courts
every day, with a lineup waiting
to get on. How about last year?
February 13, 1930, not one single
person played, and at no time
within two weeks of that date
had more than a scattered dozen
or so played.
“Yes, the courts are kept
pretty busy nowadays, although
the rash will not really start
until after spring vacation,”
said Mr. Grimes, who is in charge
on Emerald street. “This is cer
tainly very' unusual for this time
of the year, however. I don’t
know when the four new courts
will be completed, but when they
are, 1 don’t expect that the
courts will be less crowded.
There’ll just be that many more
out to play. One thing that has
helped conditions however, is
that of placing all gym classes
on the courts in the mornings.”

Dear Aunt Emma:
What would you do if you were
in a class where the examinations
are graded by studes who are un
dooly susseptable to the influence
of the fairer sex, and this fairer
sex used the advantages of their
sex in an unfair manner? It
seems as if these readers can Ik*
deceived into thinking that they
can do gallant things. I'll admit
that they do pull ROBBING
HOODS, hut why can’t they pull
this stuff in GREENWOOD FOR
EST or HENDRICKS PARK and
not in ACADEMIA. Take for ex
ample the last exam, the fairer
sex to a woman received higher
marks than our poor efforts could
hope to demand. We do the work,
lint gosh! they make the appear
ance. 1 guess that's what counts!
Please, Aunt Emma, tell us what
to do, as it is a crime to let this
We are glad you brought this
subject to our attention. It is one
of the greatest evils of our pres
ent day college system. While you
have given us a difficult problem
to solve for you, we feel that, upon
making a study of it for some time,
we might be better equipped than
most to cast out a few helpful
The first and most obvious solu
tion which might come to a per
son's mind is the following: En
roll in the home economics or wo
men’s P. E. departments. Make
a big play for the grader. Make
straight ones in course or courses.
This will help to balance, to a cer
tain extent, your low grades in
other courses. Elmer McSplatter
mug of Heidleburg tried this sys
tem and found it highly successful.
The one drawback is, naturally,
that there are not enough strictly
women’s courses to make it prof
There is the converse alternative,

of course, and take nothing but j
strictly men's courses, but there,
on the other hand, with the women
eliminated, there are not enough
dumb students to make your posi
tion any better. Dave Wilson says
this plan is the dough, but then,
you know David and his scholar
One of the best plans to follow,
if you are at all dramatically in
clined, and don't weigh more than
150 pounds, is as follows: Get a
wig, a pair of sheer silk hosiery,
a powder puff, mascara, a dress,
and a provocative glance, and wear
that outfit to class. Practice coo
ing and looking helpless. Develop
the habit of sitting in the front
row and listening breathlessly to
the professor’s every word, all the
time eyeing him in speechless ad-'
miration. Learn to pipe up in class
in a sibilant, caressing, soprano
tone. Be sure and exhibit the
sheer hosiery. Don’t worry, you’ll
pass. Kelley Slocum tried this
j plan and is enthusiastic over it.
! ‘It’s the only way,” he excitedly
exclaims. On the other hand
George Christensen, who gave it
| a fling for a while, will have none
i of it. ‘‘It’s the nuts,” he growls
| disgustingly, “It don’t work worth
ja hoop.” So there you are.
There is just one more possible
j solution, and it is still in a Uto
pian form. This would call for the
; organization of all the men on the
campus. Each man would be re
quired to carry a lipstick, a pow
der puff, and a mirror to class.
They would have to sit in class
and powder their noses, make eyes
at the professor, and giggle in
cessantly. This will disgust the
women, and, in defense and to be
different, they will become more
and more masculine. The grader
will disapprove of this change, and
will begin to prefer the men. And
If but one of these suggestions
is of use to you, I will feel amply
repaid for my efforts and research.

is not for popularity’s sake. It is

IS WORK IN LIBRARY
(Continued from Page One)
1 of the most important phases of
the work, according to Miss Long.
Between 200 and 275 letters come
| to the library every day asking
questions on all sorts of topics,
and wanting books or ether infor

The library does a great deal
of supplementing other public and
school libraries throughout the
state. Many libraries borrow from
300 to .800 books a year from the
state institution in order to better
serve their community.
Miss Long addressed a large
group of women Thursday after
noon in Alumni hall on library
work as a profession. Her talk

the Associated Women Students.
