What Other Editors Believe
Politics is a dirty business at best. Caucuses
have long been denounced as cancerS on the demo
cratic system. At Stanford for the past few years
the hue and cry against secret meetings and deals
to decide on party candidates has been growing
louder and more meaningful.
Last year the controversy came to a head when
a would-be ASSU president revolted against the
Row caucus and set himself up as an independent
candidate. Although the Greeks were victorious in
the election, this schism revealed a fundamental
weakness in the Lasuen political set-up.
Already this spring Row politicos are talking
about independent parties, simon-pure and caucus
free. Their objective is admirable, but they may
find it difficult to overturn a machine that has
been producing winning candidates since 1935. A
victory for the rebels one year would probably
result in an even more formidably organized Row
the next.
Paradoxical as it may seem, the solution to the
fraternities’ problem lies in the Halls. In order to
avoid active dissatisfaction and revolt, Tnterclub
Council has made the Hall caucus an official insti
tution. The success of this plan points the way for
reform on the Row.
The most effective way to put an end to the
civil war among the Greeks is to make the Row
caucus an official organ of Interfraternity Coun
cil. Organization for the selection of candidates
is a vital feature of the party system. Caucuses
of one sort or another are inevitable.
If the Row wants to clean up its politics with
out losing its strength, an Interfraternity Conven
tion will do the trick. As Stanford politics matures
parties must realize that a dozen ’ smoke-filled
hotel rooms cannot match the strength of a packed
convention hall. Stanford Daily.

journalism professors, the only way for a
woman 1o beat a man in journalism is to sur
pass him at the same tliinpr. This today’s wo
men will ultimately be considering. Now it is
likely that the odds against women in jour
nalism are not quite so great, the picture is
probably painted too darkly. Hut the women
are a game lot. Women graduates of this
school with few exceptions get jobs.

Hendricks-Sigma Nu Float
Has 'Jabberwacky' Theme
The “Jabberwocky” float has
just disappeared down the mill
lace. The brilliantly illuminated
water curtain parts for the second
time, and the “Walrus and the

float is sponsored by Hendricks

Art Holman's orchestra starts
playing “Would You Like to Take
a Walk?" and as the White Rab

their satirical pantomime of the
oyster feast. The little oysters are
labeled “Austria," “fOthiopia,"
“Czechoslovakia,” "Albania,” etc.
