SCREEN AND STAGE

(By Edwin R. Meiss)
A month or two ago "The Charm
School," an entrancing musical come-
dy, played on the legitimate stage in'
Detroit. Today the Arcade offers the
screen production of this comedy
drama, with Wallace Reid playing the
part of a young automobile salesman
who inherits an aristocratic girls'
school from his Aunt and who at-
tempts to run it himself in order that
he may work out his own principles
and ideas -in regard to the opposite
sex. He believes that girls should
have no other object in life except to
#ie charming, and it is to the gaining
of this end that he directs the activi-
ties of his institution. This iakes an
exceedingly interesting photoplay, the1
;nost worth while of the week. Lila1
Lee supportsWally Reid in the cast.
Klondike Life Pictured
For the last few years with unfail-
Ing regularity, the novels of Rex
Beach have appeared in screen form,
until the mere mention of his name
calls to mind a scene in the snowy
North, with a dance hall, dog teams,
and all the other accoutrements of
life in the Klondike. The Majestic
offers today one of these Rex Beach
stories with a most romantic name,
"The North Wind's Malice," a fascin-
ating tale of thrilling adventure. The
cast is capable, and the film well
photographed.
Avery Hopwood has achieved quite
a little fame since he left Michigan,
and his plays have not only gained
success, up Broadway, but they have
been transformed to shadowland, and
one of the best of them, "Clothes," is
being projected at the Majestic on
Wednesday and Thursday. The action
takes its vim and vigor from the
.actions of a married villian, separated
from his wife, who as the lawyer of
an orphaned young woman pays her
an income on some worthless bonds
left by her father in order that later
on he may have her in his power. The
all-star cast includes Olive Tell and
Crauford Kent.

At the Arcade for the latter half of
the week there is scheduled another
gold 'strike (picture of no especial
merit except that it features that two-
holstered exponent of cramp-faced
emotion, William S. Hart. For the
last five or six years he has been
acting in the same Dead-Eye-Dick
type of story, until his expressions
have beconfe stereotyped and his plots

by the substantial sentiment of both,
while there must be at the same time
a student sentiment to back up and
cooperate with the state in its sphere,
and the faculty in its sphere.
In other words, the sphere of student
self government must not -antagonize
but assist in the functioning of the
other two."
Plans Being Deveioped
There you have the limitations of
the sphere of activity of the student
government, and an indication of the
powers it would need to operate.
The president of the Student Coun-
cil, Le Grand A. Gaines, Jr., '21E,

has this to say about the plans now
being developed:
"No definite decision as to the exact
problems which could be handled
without University interference has
yet been made. The meeting last Sun-
day showed that a large number of
the men on the campus favor a greater
grant of power than is now exer'ised
by the students, and we are now try-
ing to find out just where that power
should begin and end."
In the regulation of social activi-
ties he feels that the student body
should exercise complete control.
Such control would be less irksome to
students, and it would accomplish its
end better than the present system.
All dances, including Union parties,
those at the Armory, and fraternity
house parties would be subject to the
rulings of the student representatives.
Of course some authority to punish in--
fringements would be necessary. In
the case of fraternities this could be
done by giving the governing body
the power to demand that the disobed-

lent fraternity relinquish the use of
its house for a period, and in case of
continued infractions the national
headquarters of the fraternity would
be notified that its local chapter was
no longer desired. This would not
fail to cause drastic action on the
part of the national organization,
either the ending of the Michigan
chapter or an ending of its violations
of the regulations.
Could Handle Drinking
The second matter that might be
handled better by the students is the
drinking problem. If the University
would grant the students the power of
expelling any student who disobeyed
its liquor laws the problem would
cease to exist. The power is now
exercised by the University anyway
so it would not mean any hardship
on the student offender. But the fact
that the undergraduate body and not
the University would be the enforcer
of the regulation would lessen the
number of offenses. The disgrace of
being expelled from the University by

one's fellow students would seer
greater to the offender than does ex-
pulsion by University authorities
This would be aastrong reason for
staying on the wagon.
Exten Uncertain
Exactly how far the student regula
tion should go is hard to decide. That
it should be allowed to a greater de-
gree than now prevails is unquestion-
able.
There you have the thing as seer
by the president of the council who
has been largely responsible for the
action taken thus far. It rests with
the undergraduate body to exercise
its "self determination" to the extent
that it is feasible. How far do you
think it should go?
