Remember the favorable impression made by Cor-
nell last week in their treatment of our men. It
will do well for us to do likewise.
That student dramatics at -Michigan should lack
the spirit of striving after the' finished touch which
characterizes professional work is not the fault of
the directors of the various clubs, but of 'a sys-
tem without co-operation. If it is to be impressed
on every student atcor and every campus produc-
ing organization that Michigan has a standard of
dramatic excellency to be lived up to - a standard
higher, in some respects, even than the profes-
sional - some )way must be found to bring the
clubs together, inculcate this common spirit, and
work in concert to attain the best results.,
A committee representing every dramatic society
on the campus might be formed, in which the aims
of common striving could be brought out in discus-
sion. Authorities on drama would be ex-officio
members of this committee, and the net result could
be a valuable interchange ,of directing talent. At
present, no matter how. the directors may labor, it
is hard in many productions to get students to
realize that they are striving for the attainment of
real 'art. The attitude of conscious amateurism is
fed by a knowledge of'what casts in the past have
been expected to do, and our "best" is too often
only that which "will get by." If the work of all
societies were put on 'a common plane, with the
-ideals' Michigan demands clearly in the mind of
every member of every cast, we might expect ,to
achieve the air of completeness and reality which
University drama can attain if it'- wills so and la-.
bors hard.
Eventually, more practical use could well be found
for the committee. Interchange of directors would.
be only a start; it could become the routine of this
body to make practical arrangements for times of
rehearsal, dates of production, 'securing of the best.
costumes. It could issue joint invitations to author-
itative speakers on the drama to address Ann Arbot
audiences. And a-s a crowning ideal, it might even
provide such a distribution of surplus funds as to
aid to better production those societies which pre-
sent the less popular, though artistically more im-
portant, forms of drama.

eastern cities, thereby tending to es-
tablish a closer relationship between
western and eastern colleges" .
Herman, A. August, '21L, editor of
the Athletic Program: "I doubt
whether this would work out finan-
cially. But I do think there is a great
need for Michigan to begin to do
things outside of the vicinity of Ann
Arbor. When I was at Cornell with
the football team in 1916, the students
there didn't think Michigan amounted
to anything outside of ath.letics. They
had great opinions of such schools as
Princeton, Cornell, Dartmouth, as
they had recently given various ex-
hibits throughout the country. I think
the alumni in the East would be more
than glad to help such a cause as
Donald Knight Mirrielees, '20E, in
she cast of the Michigan opera: "I
come from the East and it is surpris-
ing how little easterners think of
Michigan. The average person on the
coast thinks this a 'little up-start' of
a college and they regard Columbia,
Williams, and Harvard as real col-
leges. Why? Because these schools
are continually coming before the
public eyes in athletics, dramatics,
and debates. The people in the East
are curious about us, and in my opin-
ion a good, peppy show would open
their eyes and raise Michigants stock

Elsie L. Erley, '20, vice-president of

this would be an excellent idea. If
this proposed trip is carried out, it
will certainly help broaden the Uni-

Knowing that college students as a whole are
keenly interested in intellectual symposiums we
have prepared a great feast for them by propound-
ing below some'of the great questions which have
puzzled the philosophers of all ages.
When can a man buy a cap for his knee
Or a key for a lock of his hair?
Can his eyes be called an academy
Because there are pupils there?
What gems are set in,the crown of his head?
Who travels the bridge of his nose?
Can he use in shingling the roof of his mouth
The nails on the end of his toes?
Can the crook of his elbow be sept to jail?
And if so what did it do?
Where does he sharpen his shoulder blades?
I'm sure I don't know - do you?
We have no desire to curdle anybody's milk of,
human happiness but feel we must sob out this
tragic story which has just been brought to our at-
tention by a Pontiac reader.

young lady).is one. of the saddest cases' we have
Visitor-How's that?
Supt.-Why the poor girl went to high school
here and was only fairly popular then. After high
school she went to Ann Arbor, where to put it
crudely "'she got -away big." But for some inex-
plicable reason she still continued to labor under
the delusion that' even then she wasn't any better
than the boys and girls she used to know back
home ; in fact she had even been known to be
chummy with the home town boys she me- there
at school.
