In the election'S today we will once more witness the usual conflict be­ tween "politics" and merit. The ave­ rage student voter casts his ballot for. ce�tain carrdidat es because he is Con��cted directly or indirectly wnth ine of the cliques that wishes to gain control of <the campus pork barrel, or becaues he has promised to vote for Smith or Jones, -or because he thinks that Smith is a better "sport" than . . id Jones. 0 Very little attenbon IS. pal to the relative merits or dements .oJ the nominees who are on t�e polit- ical market.

In jus­ tice to these societies rt would be bet­ ter to publish also the number of stu­ dents graded in each case. Beta Phi had only two members in residence .in -the Autumn quarter, a fact which should be taken into consideration in anouncing this fraternity as first in the list. In Delta Chi there were on­ ly seven members graded. The num­ bers in the other fraternities vary from fourteen to 0 thirty-four; details are given in the table issued by this of­ fice to the Maroon and to the fraterni­ ties. Let me suggest that in future quarters the number of men graded in each fraternity be published in the list of standings. I remain, Yours sincerely, F. J.

Editor of The -Maroone-e- When I first read the editorial in The Maroon of February 7th, sub­ ject "Eccentricity's Product," I was de.eply amused. I visualized a col­ lege class a generation or so hence, and imagined the professor saying, "'This little article, pitiful as it may seem. presents the state of mind of a number of the people; it was pub­ lished in the daily sheet of the larg­ est Middle Western University." But upon second thought I recognized the weight 9f the paper has with many students, who read no other; and, also the impression given· to the outside public and press. The purpose of thi� , letter is to' advance the perSonal op­ inion, backed by many contacts, that the sentiments of this editorial, far from representing the unanimous at- . titude of the University, are repudiat­ ed by the great body of the students and faculty. Particularly is the re· version of our civilization and the lowering of our standards to th, level of compulsory military training ab­ solutely oppOsed' to the democratic ideals expressed everywhere on our University campus. This letter's purpose then is not a refutal of the editorial. That would be superfluous; the editorial' is all invective, and there is only one meth­ od of treating invective, ·beside ig­ noring it. It is that of the little dar­ ky who was ,being thoroughly "cussed out" by an angry neighbor. He wait­ ed very patiently until the irate one's breath and attributive adjectives were exhausted, then he responded slowly, 'Evuh thing wut you-all say I is, you is-twice." The same applies here, the article is its own refutation. Two things from the article par­ ticularly struck my attention; the title and the final sentence. The title "Eccentricity's Product" is too good to be true. Evidently someone is a slave to that rule of journalism, "Summarize your article in a brief, concise headline." At the risk of repetition, I quote the last sentence, presenting the basic idea of the whole article. "The col­ lege man does not want to be dassed as a cheap coward." Tbat is not true, HODor Commission Elections. It has 'been a custom in the past to, express the attitude of the Honor commission -in regard to the election' of its members. The point ha,s been brought up that the Honor commis­ sion must have eXiperienced people to carryon its 'wtork, and it is to empha­ size this tlhat the present communi­ cation is written. The writer feels , that in Honor commission electioms there should 'be absolutely no elec­ tioneering. He ,feels !that the only thing tID, do is pick pople for the com­ mission on a basis of merit. Th� precedent has ibeen estalblished that �he Junior memberS of the Honor cormnission sh'Ould he ,re-elected to carryon the wor:k which they 'have started, and in oorder that the upper class membens -who hold the execu­ ti�'e posGtions may 'be experienced. It would 'be an injustice to the student hody to place an incxperienced per­ son at the head of such an imRortant bod;" and it would be an injustice 00 the individual. �th this in mind the commission recommends that the present members of the comm�ssion be returned to office as a result' of the elections. At ;present t,here is a grat deal 'Of wtOrk which is being sys­ tematized so that in the future the Honor sentiment may be spread with the greatest possible ease and effi­ ciency. To take the important cogs from the machinery which i.s working out the big problems which the Hon­ or commission has to face would be ddrimental to the advancement of the standard of our university honor. .The Honor Commi5(Sion, Buell Patterson, President. , i ' __ . �------------- NATURE never starts any- thing she can't finish.

' THE DAILY 1lAR00N� THURSDAY FEBRUARY 15, 1917� BUCKEYE TRACK MEN TO MEET VARSITY TOMORROW Coach Castleman Will Bring Inex­ perienced Squad to Bartlett-Dis­ MOndo Greene and Curtiss Doped for Places in 440 With a team made up largely of in­ experienced men, the Ohio State track �m will open its season against the Maroons tomorrow night in Bartlett. This is the only home meet on the Chicago schedule, the remaining dual meet being scheduled with Northwest­ ern at Evanston. Coach Stagg's men scored a one-sided victory over Pur­ due two weeks ago, and according to the comparative strength of the two teams, should not find a very formid­ able foe in the Buckeyes. The real strength of the Ohio squad is un­ known, but a poorly balanced aggre­ gation is to be expected. Coach Castleman, of the visitors suffered a severe set-back at the op­ ening of the season when three of his od men failed to reurn to school and as a result has been forced to rely on a number of new men to complete his list of entries. The Buckeyes made only a mediocre showing against the Varsity last year, losing by a score of 55 1-2 to 30 1-2. The added strength of the Maroons this season in the distance runs places their op­ ponents on the short end of the odds. Dash Men Have Chance. Chicago's quartet of dash men, Feu­ erstein, Van Kirk, Gemmill and Brink­ man, while not up to the standard of last year's sprinters, should stand an even chance to win from the Ohio State' men. Davies, Hill and Wag­ ner will run the hurdles for the vis­ itors, with Guerin as Chicago's best bet. Dismond, of national fame in the 440, can take his time in the quar­ ter, with Greene and Curtiss likely contenders for second and. third. Clark is a certain winner in the half unless Coach Castleman has been keeping a two minute man under cov­ er. Ohio has its best array of spiked shoe athletes in the mile and two mile events with Ferguson, the negro pacer in the former, and Captain Nevin in the latter event. The Buck­ eye captain has been going under ten minutes in the two mile. Tenney and Ots, of Chicago, should . take a first and second, however, in the mile. , Rankin and Poe, weight men of no mean ability, will be pitted against Higgins iii the shot with the odds fa­ voring the Maroon. Captain Fisher . can be counted upon to annex ten more points with firsts in the pole vault and high jump. CHOOSE MEMBERS AND CHAIRMEN OF BLACK BONNET COMMITTEES Chairmen and members of five Black Bonnet committees have been chosen. They are: Publicity commit­ tee-Ruth' Huey, chairman; Dorothy Scholle, Elizabeth Ford, and Martha Behrendt; Entertainment committee -Eleanor O'COnDoT, chairman; Ber­ nice Fisher, Mildred Gordon, Eliza­ beth Shutter, Julia Kritzer, and May Cornwail; Refreshment committee-­ Louise Swank, chairman; Lucile Kan­ nally, Nira Cowen, Margaret Scae­ vitt, Dorol4hy Van Pelt; House com­ mittee-Katherine �Iagill, chairman; Ruth Braucher; �fembenship commit- ,tee-Edith West, chairman: Helen )forrel1, Helen Hummel, and Eliza­ beth .Townsend. ADD TO COLLECTJON OF AUTOGRAPHED LETI'ERS Dr. Frank Gtmsaulus has given five more autozraphed letters for the But­ ler-Gunsaulus collection of autograph­ ed letters owned by the University and placed in the reading-room of Harpe!'. The new letters are as fol­ lows: Charles W. Elliott to Joseph Leverin, August, 15, 1831; James D.

T'he last game in which they participated was stopped by Manager English, - in order that carpenters might erect five foot fences on booth sides of the aI­ leys, thus saving the walls of the club basement .from injury. For a while Ph-i Delta Theta and Alpha Delta Phi had a monopoly on Reynolds club presidencies, but since Lirrronati, elected ·the most handsome man in his class, has left the institution, pol­ itics on the part of Phi Delta Theta has ceased. .The Phi Delts o-wn a very capable ladies' man in 'the per­ son of Volini; ask the Press girl� They also have a gentleman who is being sought by three rnernbens of Phi Gamma Delta, said gentleman having played a bad trick on the three Fijis in December.

No 'Pains will be spared in attempting to amuse him, and no pains will be spared in the at­ tempt to amuse the Phi Gams after the tub is filled.
