papers, to be successful, mus$ have the
, of big advertising contracts. The big con-
o to the papers of largest circulation. At the
time various newspapers have adopted the
of running beauty contests as a means of
ng circulation. They all have the bug from
> coast. Large and small sheets, metropoli-.'
. otherwise, are plastering their rotogravure
with girls' photos.
Ion't in the least object to girls so long as
the right girls, nor yet to photographs of
al faces so long as the faces are really beau-
d well reproduced, but there is a limit. Per-
we hate to admit that our taste in feminine
is rotten, 'but we fail to see a remote sem-
of beauty in a large per cent of the pub-
'pics". Further than this we consider it
minds of unsuspecting maidens. Think of the pos-
sibilities of future eventualities which arise every
time that a girl gets the beauty idea: dreams of
such power as Helen of Troy wielded over the
hearts and fortunes of men, high expectations, an
insensible enlargement of the ego, and then - -
tragedy when she realizes that she is a mistake in-
stead of an Aphrodite. f
The papers really should not do it. They should
protect the ignorant from the fruits of their folly.
Their moral culpability is immeasurable. Think of
the enormity of their offense. They prove by visual
evidence that the factory girl is more desirable than
the society bud, that beauty is not the hallmark of
blue blood. In short they breed disdntent all down
the line and encourage the terrible threat of bolshe-
Finally and worst of all they force the infam-
ously unpleasant adage of the great P. T. Barnum

TO OPERA WRITERS
Only two Union opera scenarios for next year
have as yet come into the hands of Director E. Mor-
timer Shuter. Neither of the two contains a single
campus scene ; both are "foreign" operas. It is
even probable, because of the great success enjoyed
by "Top o' th' Mornin'', that students are being
led to write this type in preference to a play in the
least degree localized.
There is none too much time left in which to get
out an opera, nor even to write the book to the lim-
'ited extent required for submission. Two weeks of
good hard effort will do it, and every student who
has the least ambition along this line should get
down to business at once and utilize spring vacation
to the full. The play should be selected in May so
that the composers can get to work on the music and
in order that the lines and lyrics may be worked over
in co-operation with the director.
There is every chance in the world for a student
who can write a good opera with some campus lo-
cal color. Director Shuter wants one; the alumni
in particular want one; and, no matter how ex-
cellent the "Top o' th' Mornin'" sort may be for
variety's sake at long intervals, the partially local
type should certainly be the rule. The fact that no
good local opera was turned in last spring was the
reason for accepting a purely "foreign" book; offi-
cials are prejudiced for, not against, the partially
local kind, but they must necessarily accept the best.
.There is no reason, Michigan cannot produce an-
other excellent Ann Arbor opera - that is, local in
one scene at least. , Most of the best plays in the
past have had a strong Ann Arbor touch. The prin-
cipal thing to remember is that alumni are not fa-
miliar .with the ultra-new on the campus. The
"Betsy Ros" joke in "George Did It", for exam-
ple, didn't "get across" on the road because the
alumni hadn't heard ofs the place; but"Joe's and
the Orient", as ever, brought down the house. Who's
to be the man to write an opera which will please
Michigan and the alumni houses on the trip as well?
Plenty of laurels await the playwright who turns

Where curious stories dwell,

There hangs a much famed bell.
The story tells many incidents,
Most of which I 'diina ken'
But the thing that caught my fancy
Was, the bell was named "Big Ben".

TAILORED AT PFASHIOf PARK
Last night I dreamed of London,
And I heard the old bell chime
Its peals of stately beauty
In a sort of martial time.
But my dream was rudely broken,
And from my life went all the zest,
Big Ben in the Tower had stopped ringing
But his grandson was doing his, best.

vegetable kingdoms are blended to form a new com-

And when you get it back
