A CONVOCATION HOUR
University convocations have received the hearty
endorsement of the campus at large. It is appre-
ciated on every hand that Michigan, as a whole,
must meet together more often to preserve'its unity
as its departments become more specialized and its
attendance increases. The University is now the
third largest educational institution in America. The
days are long since past when the president taught
several subjects in addition to performing his ex-
ecutive duties. There has, of necessity, been a ten-
dency for student and student, and students and
faculty to drift apart. It is not a vain hope that
convocations will go a long way toward counteract-
ing this undesired companion of growth and bring-
ng all Michigan- closer together again. -
In the wake of the convocation plan as first pro-
posed, have come important movements for the in-
auguration of meetings of parts of the student
body, such as the upperclassmen, who have been
very successfully called together. These meetings-
have much to commend them. Formation of poli-
cies in gatherings that tax the capacity of Hill aud-
itorium - for such will be the regular convoca-
tions - will be difficult at least and will be greatly
facilitated if matters are thrashedout a little be-
But it should be remembered that the arrange-
ment of group meetings is not ~the main objective.
These gatherings should be only supplementary. To
stop with them would be to stop before the great-
est possibilities of the convocastion plan have been
It should be possible to weld the group meetings
and the regular convocations into one big system
that will result in the greatest good. This has much
to be said for it in view of thq practical problem of
setting meeting times, alone. One hour could be
set aside each week when all student and faculty
activities would cease. This time would be avail-
able, first, for a convocation if conditions demanded
it, or if such a gathering were in the opinion oft
President Marion L. Burton 'unnecessary, the hour
would be open for class, inter-class, and inter-de-
partment meetings and the like.
What hour is set aside is immaterial as long as
some hour is made available. In many respects
Wednesday is a convenient day aijd the sugges-
tion that there be no academic work scheduled for
Wednesday at two o'clock is not a bad one. The
essential point is that some action be taken to pro-
vide a convocation hour for next semester.
"Caught wife in bear trap, Southern 'wild man'
says," runs a headline in Sunday's Chicago Trib-
une. Oh, Burroughs, spare the rest of us from
Judging from the recent example of police mark-
manship, it might be safer if the officers would
aim at the students when trying to scare them.
The International Conductors' association has
adopted a new song entitled, "Carfare Must Not
Ring Tonight !"

NOW FOR THE BOWL
Announcement that the plan of building a "U"
t Ferry field has been abandoned brought little
urprise to the many persons on the campus who
ad heard of the discovery that a "bowl" similar
> the Yale stadium and almost unlimited in capac-
:y possibilities could be sunk in the high ground
authof the field for the same or less expense than
he "U". The Board in Control of Athletics is to
e commended for its quick revision of plans and
s decision to build temporary and movable stands
n the old field to take care of the needs of the
ext year or so as well as possible.
The fact that these temporary stands will not by
ny means provide for the great demand for seats,
hich last year was estimated at 50,000 for a sin-
le game, must not be forgotten. Every great game
ayed with the.inadequate stands will mean a loss,
f possible income. The movement for the com-
etion of the "U", which was swifly gathering
omentum before the bowl idea was broached,
ust not be allowed to die ; the momentum should
e turned at once to bring to realization the more
-actical proposition of the bowl.
THE DIRECTOR'S AGE.
The old movie days when stars used to insist on
eir own names in foot-high carmine type on all
splay ads are passing. No longer do the con-
acts read "and none but Cynthia' Cylph's name
call appear." The actor is fortunate indeed if his
gnomen appears even in the smaller subdecks; fo
e era when the star was the picture is becoming
ily a memory, and the director, once a mere me-
anic with a megaphone, has come into his own.
"MARSHALL NEILAN presents 'Dinty';"
)AVID WARK GRIFFITH'S great dram of
e and death;" "A CECIL De MILLE Produc-
n ;" "An ALLAN DWAN picture;" "GEORGE
)ANE TUCKER'S MiracleMan "-- so the list
es on. Some of the greater stars have managed
bridge the gap by becoming their own directors
d even writing their scenarios: The great trium-
rate, Pickford, Fairbanks, and Chaplin, come in
The change is certainly significant; and most fol-
wers of the film art believe that it is a change for
od. The glamor of a star's good looks and mere
esence on the screen was often used to advantage
producers who foisted poor films on the public
justified trust in that, public's blind wopship of
pularity. As long as the sight of an actor's name
a billboard was sufficient to crowd the picture
uses, little hope for real cinema art was in sight.
t the revolt came, slowly and 'convincingly; and
w, to be ,a true success, a photoplay must pos-
s plot, good photography, and above all the di-
tion which binds a play- together into a coherent
I interesting whole. For all of these qualities the
ector is responsible; and the rise of men of Grif-
's type, who could transform a mediocre Henry
Llthall and Mae Marsh into those wonderful cre-
ins. the "little colonel of "The Birth of a Na-
n" and the modern-day heroine of "Intolerance",
he truest guarantee of future greatness which
the director stands apart. He does not appear

TO HOBBS' VIEWS
In no uncertain terms, Prof. Thomas
C. Trueblood, of the oratorical depart-
ment in the University, replied in an
interview yesterday afternoon to Prof
W. H. Hobbs criticism of the Orator-
ical association's choice of speakers
for the lecture course this season.
"There is only a word to say," said
Professor Trueblood, "the chairman of
the lecture committee consulted the
President and several heads of de-
partments in regard to the course be-
fore publishing the list of speakers.
However, all understand that it is just
Hobbs, the irresponsible, self-appoint-
ed campus censor.
"The accusations gainst Rabbi Wise
ande Vice-President Marshall all may
be answered by them, if- they choose
to take any notice, and Senator 1'ev-
eridge will have a chance to reply
when he returns next June. The ar-
ticle is a severe reflection on the gen-
tlemen who introduced the distin-
guished speakers. I would suggest
that Professor Hobbs consult an 'ad-
visory committee' of 'enlightened Am-
ericans' of the faculty, before rushing

Can't somebody think up an argument why
Soph prom should be stopped?
A girl insane imagines she's a princess
And it makes a truly mournful scene;
But here we have an even sadder sight -
I,500 co-eds, each believing she's a queen.
Our idea of adding insult to injury is to have
to stick around about half an hour every time you
go into one of these local banks, and then get a
statement at the end of the month charging you
$-5 ofor the "SERVICE" they rendered you in
keeping your money.
How to Be the Life of the Party
LESSON NO. IV
The following- lesson is intended primarily for
law students, and to obtain the best results should
be first tried out in a sorority house. Thus seated
on the divan with several of the sisters clustered
about you ask:
"Girls,how would you decide the following case
if you were a judge? A, B and C live on a side
bill. A has a peacock. A's peacock flies over into
B's back yard and lays an egg which at once rolls
over into C's front yard. Who owns the egg?"
When the argument has waxed strong among the
sisters as to what party should rightly own the eggs
you suddenly hold up a restraining hand and say:
"You're all wrong, girls. 1either A, nor B, nor
C owns the egg."
When somebody finally manages to get their
breath long enough to ask "Why?" you reply non-
"Why, because peacocks don't,-lay eggs," and
you've forever enshrined yourself in their girlish
hearts as the house cutup.
