Arbor, Michigan, as second
of experience in -the particular variety of produc-
tion and playwriting required for college players
and colge .audi'enoes. Nobody will,.confirm this
fact more decidedly than the successful writer of
"George Iaid It"' I90o opera, whose;,work was re-
vised many times before it reached its final form.
To put in the way of prospective' campus play-
wrights every facility of expert advice and chun-,
sel, Mimes have appointed a covirnittee. which will
meet in the near future with all those intending to
write opera books. Preliminaryadvice will be given,
and arrangements will be made for co-operati'n of
various members of'the Union book committee with
the writers at every stage of their"work. Such au-
thorities. as Prof. H. A. Kenyon, Wilfred B. Shaw,
Prof. Earl 'Moore, and, .Director. E. Mortimer
Shuter, -who are members 4 this committee,'may
be expected to furnish very wo thwhile assistance.
Michigan's reputation' "for doing 'things well .is
greatly advanced by a sucessfil opera tour, par-
ticularly if it can be said that the book, as well as
the atting, is undergraduate work. Students who
can write should consider this a real call to -their
loyalty as well as to their pride of achievement, and
should avail themselves at once of the assistance

FOR MEN ONLY.
One of fhe most ppparent features of our campus
life seeis to be campus vulgarity.. The proof of
this statenet .may be ascertained by a moment,
-spent in loitering in halls, or "listening in" on anyv
casual conversation.' Which brings up the -question
whether or not men who adopt the "me tough" at-
titude are the Michigan type of: which we 'pride
It is to be hoped that the answer is not in the af-
firtnative. Yet .the prevalent use of inexcusable
profanity gives to many the impression that this
vulgarity is characteristic of:the majority of Michi-
gan men. ''A chain is no stronger than its weakest
link. For the sake of all that's decent we should
have a care concerning that careless cuss word!

Prof. John F. Shepard, of the psy-
chology departuient: * "If:the current
reports' about the treatment Senator
Johnson received, at the Union are
true, somthing should certainly., be
done to prevent it's happening again."'
Ben B. Mathews, '20L, president of
the senior law class: "It is evident
that the Union should' take steps to
prevent other prominent men from
being treated as Senator Joinson was.
It must be 'considered, 'however, that
the faculty might object if politics
were discussed, for the Union is' as
much connected with the University
as Hill.-auditorium. And as it is evi-
dent that politics are not to be mix-
ed up with the auditorium, should
they with the Union?"
William W. Hinshaw, '20, Student
councilman: "I think it would be a
very good idea fdr the nion to ap-
point such a conwittee. ,If done, it is
unquestionable that the order would
be much better at these gathering.."
George H. Roderck, '21E: "I think
the Union should appoint a commit-
tee of dome sort 'to prevent another
'mob scene' similar to the one when
Senator Johnson spoke. The. co-op-
eration of the students is also neces-
sary, forta committee' alone could not
do it. It is a shame such conditions
existed, but with student co-operation
and 'an efficient committee I see no
reasons for a reoccurence."
