THE COMMITTEE EXPLAINS
your main reasons of the Committee on Dramatic
anizations for recommending recently to the
late Committee and Student Affairs that the Jun-
Girls' play, "Scepters and Serenades", should
be opened to the pulic as requested in a recent.
tion ,submitted by the women of the cast and
rus, were published in yesterday's Daily. Al-
ugh the four reasons very apparently' had been
rked out carefullybefore being subhitted to the
nmittee on Student Affairs, ,The Daily does not
I that they are at all adequate, or that they jus-
the committee's action.
he reasons given were in part as follows:
I. "This issue should not .be clouded by the
stion of raising. funds for the league building.
e principle involved is too important to be sub-
inated to any extraneous consideration, however
ghty." The committee fails to state the "prin-
Le involved", but it is to be assumed that it act-
ly is "too important to be subordinated", etc. It
st be a weighty principle indeed. Better far to
the women sell shoe laces, candy, hair nets, and
atnot, on the campus, to shine shoes, and solicit"
rnnae for subscriptions, seeking thereby to se-
e every pittance available to swell their building
d, than, by making it possible for them to earn
eral hundred or a thousand dollars at a single
e, -to subordinate such an all-important principle
this - a principle which, however, as yet re-
. "In making this decision we have no desire to
rart the will of students in the matter of college
Iition that is primarily their own concern. We
eve, however, that our attitude truly expresses
sober second thought of both men and women."
is is not a reason for the action of the commit-
rather, it is but an attempted justification of
members' attitude. That leaves but three rea-
s. Meanwhile, The Daily, as opposed to the
imittee, does not believe that this attitude ex-
sses the feeling of any but a small portion of the
n and women on the campus.
". A change from the present type
audience, . . . to one o'f a less homogeneous
t," says the committee, "would inevitably tend
nodify the standards which years of growth have
ated." Again The Daily -would call attention to
previous mention of Professor Brumm's state-.
its that he had no intention, so long as he was
cting the Junior Girls' play, of permitting a
ering of its standards. 7 he Daily would repeat
e more the fact that, although the play has been
tten and produced for years with the expecta-
each time that it was to be opened to the pub-
its character and standards have been steadily
ed rather than lowered.
"The most important aspect of this question
is bearing upon the very texture of the social
life of the student body and we believe that one of
the most distinctive features of undergraduate life
at Michigan is the independent, self-contained ex-
istence which the women of the University have al-
ways been able to maintain." The Daily fails to
understand how opening the Junior Girls' play to
the general public for several performances, at the,
same time retaining the custom of having the first
night performance for senior girls, would take away
the independent attitude of the women, any more
than opening the Union opera has affected the at-
titude of the men. So long as the play is written
and staged by women, with girls composing the en-
tire cast and chorus, it can never be called anything
but a woman's activity and function. The presence
of men in the audience - after the first night - is
not going to affect its standing as such.
The dramatic cpmmittee goes on with: "Just as
the men have jealously guarded certain of their
interests from feminine encroachment, so the
women have preserved a dignified aloofness in re-
gard to cherished activities of their own." As a
matter of fact, the men "have jealously guarded"
only one "of their interests from feminine en-
croachment" - the Tap room. Yet the women's
building undoubtedly will have at least one similar
retreat, which women students, like the men, can
call their own.
Further: "All these traditions and customs which'
have established and strengthened this quality of
our student life" - "a dignified aloofness" presum,
ably - "and its attendant atmosphere should be
faithfully and vigorously observed. Their gradual
weakening or deliberate abolition would in time re-
sult in a deterioration to the conditions 'which exist.
in certain institutions where neither the men nor
the women have any real college life of their own".
But President Marion L. Burton does not want the
two groups to stand aloof, though, at the same time,
he does not ask that they necessarily should be de-
pendent upon one another. His attitude is rather
clearly indicated by his speeches, in which he reg-
ularly speaks of men and women together, not as
STRETCH THOSE MUSCLES
Not so long ago,.a call went out asking men who
were interested in special athletic work to file their
names at the office of Waterman gymnasium. So
far, only a few have taken advantage of the ,op-
portunity. Although the active work will not begin
until after the spring holidays, it is not too early to
sign up for the class now. Early registration will
greatly facilitate the arrangement of the work to be
undertaken. It seems only fair to those who are
in charge that all applications be in the proper
hands as far ahead of time as is possible.
If skepticism is the reason for the scarcity of
names on file, careful consideration of the advan-
tages of such work will dispel any doubt. Aside
from the ordinary benefits and pleasures of gym-
nasium work, there is much else to recommend the
project. Plans have been made to take up ad-
vanced work, and, toward the end of the season, to
a arrange several competitiverevents. At a slight ex-
penditure 'of effort, much real enjoyment could be
It seems as if the old bugaboo of the student, in-
ertia, is again at work. But the classes are 'still
being held open for more applicants.

Vie T elescope
The funniest thing happened yesterday,.-
A tattoo artist came to' town;
He hung out a sign on Liberty street
And started to work tattooing students.
He was finished with more than thirty of them
(And here comes the mean part)
When the University had him arrested.
Think of it ! Arrested!
And guesswhy they did it.
It was' just another foolish argument.
They' said that this tattooer -
(And by the way remember this is April i)
That he was harming the University
Because he had designs
On so many of the students.
(Don't forget to attend the indignation meeting.)
At the Interscholastic tournament last Thursday
night the following two cheers were given:
Although much enthusiasm was shown in the giv-
ing of these cheers, some individuals accuse the
rooters of unjust partiality. It seems that while
they were at' it they could have given a
Fight 'em Postal Telegraph !
Daily Cub 1: Say, no wonder these Ensian fel-
lows come early and leave late. They've got six
wonderful inducements to do it.
Daily Cub 2: What are they?.
Daily Cub 1: I don't know their names, yet.
