Ridicules -Local

(By Agnes Holmquist)
Protest of faculty control is the
key-note in the survey of the Univer-
sity, written by G. D. Eaton,'23, and
published in the Marich issue of the
Smart Set. To his credit he has mark-
ed several faults hitherto either not
seen because of mental laziness, or un-
commented on through fear of ridicule
and universal disapproval.
The loss of independence in thought
and actions at the University, the in-
troduction of prep-school methods 'of
discipline would be laughable if they
were not so aggrevating to one still
under the rule. His stand is to be ad-
mired but when it passes over into rid-
icule the article weakens. Instances
of attempts to regulate the private life
of the students are cited by Eaton and
justly ridiculed. An erroneous idea
has sprung up that the whole of a
New Dramatics Supervisors Will Have
Charge Over Productions
Prof. L. A. Strauss, of the English
department, has been named chairman
of the committee on student dramat-
ics, it was anounced yesterday from
the office of the Dean pf Students.
Professor Strauss will have as co-
workers on this committee, Prof. 0.
3. Campbell, of the English depart.
ment, and Prof. H. A. Kenyon, of the
French and Spanish departments.
This is an entirely new committee
and was named as a sub-committee of

It will be the aim of this new com-
mittee to help and assist the various
dramatic organizations of the Univer-
sity, to see that one organization is
given equal chances with the others
to stage its productions and to, see
that all productions staged by the
several dramatic, organizations and
societies of the campus will be worthy
of the University.
"Our purpose will be to encourage
everything that is in the interest of
the students' better 'dramatic ideals,"
said Professor Strauss, 'in comment-
ing on the work of the new commit-

Alex Dow, president and general
manager of the Detroit Edison com-
pany, who will speak upon "Opportu-
nities in Public Utilities," at 3 o'clock
tomorrow afternoon in the Union as-
sembly room, has been recognized for
years as a national leader in his 'field.
He received the honorary degree of
Master of Engineering from the Uni-
versity in 1911, in recognition of his
services in utilities work.
Among the public utilities works in
which Mr. Dow has been active are
the Detroit Edison company, of which
he has been general manager for
more than 25 ears; the Detroit Unit-
ed Railway lines, of which he is a
former director; and the Connor's
creek power plant,, the design and
construction of which he directed.
Hans Kindler To
BeHere Jtonday

Hans Kindler, the famous 'cellist
who is to appear as soloist with the
Detroit Symphony orchestra in their
concert Monday evening in Hill audi-
torium, has had a varied career, ac-
cording to Samuel Pierson -Lockwood,
of the School of Music. Kindler, born
of musical parents in Rotterdam 30
years ago, began the study of both
piano and 'cello at the age of 8. At
13 he won first prize for both at the
Rotterdam conservatory.
In 1914, after numerous highly suc-
cessful appearances in Europe, hel
