Not limited to the territory of the Unit
ed States, but existing throughout the
world, is the cry of the laboring class
uplifted in protest against the capitalist
class, and equally as strong in return is
capital's answer. Why ia this, and what
is the difficulty? Without capital there
can be no labor, without labor no capi
tal. The two .axe so closely interwoven
Ithat they cannot exist apart,vand yet
so seeminelv not fitted that ther Cannot
lire together either.
Labor is asking to be, heard and wants
he. world to listen. Capital is the proud
rent severe and frequently unreason-
What prevents the two from coming to
agreement that will satisfy both, and
tisfythe, .world? Only this; they do
t understand one another, sometimes
Jecause they won t and again, and usual-
occanse tney cannot.
Down through the ages the moneyed
ass has ruled by right of wealth and

Lone, slavery abolished! But with Feu
dalism, all that made up Feudalism did
not die. Tradition is hard to kill, un
iwritten laws remain for ages, and so has
the idea of the capitalistic superiority.
But this is the twentieth century, and
the tradition is dying a natural death. We
no longer have need for it. It is time
that capita is beginning to recognize
the efficiency of labor's mind, and willing
to grant it a voice in industrial govern
ment. It is this that labor asks. It,
too, has awakened, and sees its own pos
sibilities. It is calling for freedom.
Labor wants a chance to participate
in the profits of capital, and an oppor

The hostility, if any, should be'be
tween the careful driver and the reckless
driver, rather than between all drivers
and the pedestrians. Accidents happen
more between machines than to pedes
trians. Safe driving should be a matter
of consideration of drivers themselves in
the matter of a safety Erst movement. If
every car owner in Columbia would keep
that in mind when he Tentures out upon
the streets, he need not fear accident. An
attitude of hostility toward the reckless,
incompetent drivers would be a more
effective restraint upon them than any
other means. Such a purpose would be
best carried out through an organization
of all owners of cars such as a Safe Dri

Would Change Pledging System.
Edifi the Xthsourum: 1 had lieen
away from the University only two davs
after completing my four-year course
there when I was talking about the Uni-
versity with a friehd of mine, who is,
by the way, a graduate of the University
I suppose now that you are through
school, you think the same as a lot of
us'-that the college fraternity system
should be greatly changed?" he said to
me during the conversation.
I had thought of this agitation some
but never very much in detail, and after
a moments thought replied:
io, not necessarily the fraternity sys
tem, but I would like to change the
average fraternity man."
Of course, there followed a long dis
cussion of the goods and bads of frater
nities in school life. At length I was
gladder than ever before that Missouri
is not beset with the aristocratic senti
ment that prevails at many other schools,
and that there was a thing called "Mis
souri spirit," which predominates the
thought and actions of every collection
of, students at Missouri.
That is true. I have often noticed it.
especially when comparing it with some
difficulty in another institution. I can
safely and believingly say that there is
not a fraternity or cither organization at
Missouri that would do anything other
than that which it thought the best for
There is a peculiar democracy that pre
vails it binris-all students into a com
mon brotherhood, that of supporting, and
working for the interests of Old Missouri
As I indicated, this is not true in many
But as to the change that I would like
to see the change in the fraternity man.
It is Jargely prevalent in underclass
men and can be laid at the door of one
feature of the fraternity system the
pledging system. It is not necessary to
discuss the problems of pledge week.
Everyone who has been at Missouri a
ear knows about that its good point
and its faults.
But what I am driving at is this the
average man who comes to the Univer
sity in his freshman year is just away
from his home and parents for the first
time. He has depended upon them all
his life. H rcys to the University a
tid, ignorant in 'most things, yet over
ly self confident.
Often he is already lined up for a
fraternity before he reaches Columbia.
If not, he may be pledged soon anyway.
Then he starts to school, depending up
on his fraternity brothers to make friends
for him, help him with hisTlessons, lend
him money in fact he is dependent on
them for almost everything just as he
was on his parent.
Along toward the end of his sophomore
)ear he has outgrown that. He settles
down to work. He has lost his self con
fidence and conceit. He is possessed ot
a. more agreeable and less repulsive na
But it has taken him two years to
develop. Otherwise he would have
learned all this in J term at school. The
abolition of the hazing system is partly
responsible for this condition.
.Maybe you have never thought it If
not. give it a trial. For the next few
days notice every Joud mouthed, conceit
ed looking student you see about the
campus. Notice every man whom you
can class as a lounge lizard or iazz
hound. And I will vouch that nine out
of every ten of them will be underclass
fraternity men. You will not find many
of them to be non fraternity men nor
will you find many of them upperclass
As to a solution, I am no expert to
suggest one. However, the pledging by
all fraternities at the end of the fall term
or at the end ofhe first J ear would great
ly help this condition.
Would it not?
