(New York Herald)
The army of "movie" haters is not
exactly militant, but its hatred has a,
very grim quality. it will concede*
nothing to films except boredom. So!
it i~s with some trepidation that we
rise to suggest a service which the
"movie" may have, rendered these
self-same haters.
That is to compel the theater to
improve. There seems to be a general
agreement that never before ha.s the
New York stage reached so high a
level of plays and productions as this
year. There is Shakespeare superbly
done. The-re are the Russians. Therej
are a dozen plays fairly reeking with
ideas. The bed-room farce has been
replaced by downright drama ably
constructed and setting forth an orig-
inal theme in original fasiion. Even
the girl show has developed a sharp;
edge of satire. A dozen years ago we
were graciously permitted to attend
perhaps one Shaw play a year. This
season it is as if the managers had
scoured the Continent in an effort to
produce nothing but drama appeal-
ing to the intellect so far have our
box offices traveled since that distant
day when Canada first spoke her
lonely message to an apathetic city.

bility have wrought havoc with
Michigan's championship aspirations.!
But the worm must turn, as the say-
ing has it, -and Michigan will watch
with confidence the .work of CaptainI
Birks and his teammates next sea-
son. Meanwhile, we congratulate the
newly-elected captain.
The exhibition of drawings submit-
ted in the Chicago Tribune prize com-
petition, which are now on view in
Alumni Memorial hail, represents
what is possibly the greatest achieve-.
ment in the history of modern arch-
itecture. Including among its num-
ber, the work of architects from all
parts of the world, this collection
demonstrates the architectural ten-
dencies, not of one or two nations,j
but of the earth at large.
Through the instigation of this con-
petition, the Tribune has given a
greater incentive to the perfection of
art in the designing of office build-I
ings than anything in the past Some
of the results which have been pro-
duced are truly astounding. Hereto-
fore the conception of a cold, inartis-
tic, bulk of stone has been the usual
selection as the only fitting plan for
the practical fulfillment of the needs
of an office building. Now we have
presented before us positive proof that
office buildings can be made as beau-x
tiful 2,3 cathedrals; pure in design as
well as imposing in structure. '
Motifs. from the many beautiful ca-
Ithedrals of France, the temples of the
Greeks, ard mosques of Byzantium
have been incorporated in the plans
for these ,superstructures of modern
engineering. Preserving the harmony
and symmetry of the artistic, these
architectural geniuses have combined
the ideals of the past with the me-
chanical possibilities of the present
to produce what is to be the most!
beautiful office building in the world.I
The results of the Tribune's contestj
show clearly that architecture is not1
in a period of decline, but that in this1
age of commercialism the skyscraper
nway become just as much a symbolofj
architectural perfection as the Gothic
cathedral of the middle ages.j

Among the numerous offerings of'
plays, concerts, and lectures with
which the present season is so full, a
group which possesses much signifi-
cance is the series of poets and nov-3
elists to appear under the auspices of;
Whimsies and the local Collegiate
Alumnae. The first of this group,'
Dorothy Canfield, is to appear in Hill
-auditoriim tonight. This is the sec-1
ond series ,of its kind, being a sequel
of the modern poets brought here by
the same oragnizations last spring,
and which were so enthusiastic'ally re-;
ceived at that time by the entire
The literary lecture series originat-j
ed with the group of- student writers
who are the editors and contributors
of Whimsies. These students were in
contact with the literary celebrities',
who occasionally visited Ann Arbor,'
and they were convinced 'that a good-
'ly part of the community would like-
wise appreciate the privilege of such}
contact. So hearty was the response
in favor of the idea as set forth in
Whimsies that flans were made -by
its proponents fof- arranging a series
of lectures. Twelve hundred persons
aftended the first lecture, and subse-
quent ones were even more numer-i
ously attended.
The conviction that there is a per-1
manent place at Michigan for a dis-1
tinctive literary series of this charca-
ter each year led the sponsors of the-
series last spring to attempt a second
venture this year. A trio of two nov-1
elists and a poet has been secured,
and possibly another name or two
may be added to this list later on. The
students and alumnae who are work-
ing to make the literary series a per-
manent feature at Michigan are de-
serving and should receive the same
support- which greeted their efforts'
last year.

The arrangement being fostered by
the Y. M. C. A. whereby a number
of students of the University will be
enabled to take an educational coursej
at the University of Mexico next-
summer deserves encouragement. Al-
though Mexico seems destined to play
an important part in our economic,
political ,and .social relations in the
future, the- average educasted person
knows little about the internal af-
fairs of our border state.
Mexico at present is endeavoring to!
form a stable government, and to
clean up -the country from within in'
an effort to gain some measure of
prestige internationally. If this can
be accomplished throughout a period
of years, political advancement plus 1
the development of dormant economic?
resources should make Mexico some-
thing of a world power, and it will beE
to our interest to aid Mexico in bring-!
ing this about.
But aside from this Mexico has al-
ready progressed far enough cultural-
ly to be of interest to University stu-
dents. A goodly amount of litera-.
ture, some of it of vaue, has been pro-
duced, and though the best 'Mexican
authors are read extensively by Eu-1
ropeans they have practically no
following in this country. Impressive
cathedrals modernized after the art of
the middle ages may be seen in Mex-
ico City and other metropolises of the
country. The "University at Mexico
City has an enviable standing among
Mexico in its new period of develop-
ment needs the help of America. Its

above all it needs young Americans

Deep lown into the soul and slips
A Lethean bliss

Of Love's abyss.

There is a constant clamor from
certain groups of intellectuals who
very steadfastly aver that they have
a right to what they choose to call
their opinions. But the query often
arises: Have they this right? Do they
really know why they believe as they
James Harvey Robinson, in his book
-The Mind in the Making", lays par-
ticular stress upon a certain aspect of
our thinking. This aspect, though far
from being remote impresses us as
being one that istoo seldom realized.
~ "Most of our so-called thinking and
reasoning is our attempt to justify to
ourselves not our opinions, but the
prejudices we already hold," says
Professor Robinson. In other words,
we are always trying to find reasons
for believing the things we want to
believe. We are always trying to fit
facts to our prejudices.
One can cite numerous instances
which are points in proof of Profes-
sor Robinson's statements. Politics, on
the one hand, furnishes us with illum-
inating details. People are Republi-
cans or Democrats, but, have they
come to be one or the other by any
reasonable process? As one editorial
writer queried recently, do not most
of us inherit our political views and
then try to find reasons for clinging
to this inheritance?
In labor controversies most of us
start with a fixed point of view rather
than an, open ,mind. It is essential
that we follow the facts and then ar-
rive at our opinions, whatever they
may be.
Universally it is true that men dif-
fer, but we can honestly try to study
a problem and get at the real truth
in regard to it. Let us not seek to
justify our prejudices, but to have
opinionps based on fact rather than
