(Detr6it Free Press)
In what sounds like a shrewd diag-
nosis of the situation in which Great
Britain finds itself with re'ard to
France, Sir Philip Gibbs says events
are going to force "England quite soon
to take sides definitely with France
in coercion of Germany, or to tell
France politely but firmly, that we
must resist and oppose by all politi-
cal meacs, her occupation of the
Rlhi'neland with its destruction of Ger-
man industry and its dragooning of
German citizens who refuse to work
under French bayonets or to shInit
to French domination and martial law
in time of peace."
Sir Philip says this will be a "very
terrible decision" for Great Britain to
make, but the burden of his conclu-
sion is that while that country will
be loth to break with France, it "can-
not and will not associate itself with
France in this use of force and bru-
tality to. exact tribute from a de-
fenseless people whose national ruin,
increased by this coercion, prevents
them'paying. And Gibbs offers to his
fellow-countrymen whatever comfort
there may be for them in the asser-
tion that the fault is the fault of
France, not of Great Britain, which
ha had forced on it an issue it would
be happy to avoid.
However, Sir Philip is not hope-
less. lie confesses to a "gleam of
hope" which has suddenly burst upon
him. This'gleam is nothing less than
the old stock suggestion that the way
out of the Ruhr difliculty is interven-
tion by the United States. But in
presenting this scheme as a novelty.
Gibbs is more diplomatic than some
of his brother writers. He puts the
thought into the mouth of an unnamed

American who is made to say that
"when intervention must happen, the
United States and Great Britain will
have to straighten things out." In
short, we find emphasis on the idea
that force of circumstances, or shall
we say fate, rather than deliberate
choice is going to govern Washing-
ton's attitude.
This is interesting, and possibly in-
structive as a warning to America to
be especially careful in sailing clear,
particularly in view of the reiteration
by'Pr'emier Poincare of his announce-
nient that France will not accept me-
diation or even enter into indirect
conversations with third parties re-
gardling the Ruhr situation.
But Gibbs is not only interesting, in
spite of the seriousness of the topic
he discusses, lie also is entertaining.
It is quite apparent after reading what
he has to say, that lie and those oth-
er Englislunen for whom he may
speak are not so much oppressed by
the thought of making a "terrible
decision" which may make "those
Engli.sh dead lying in French soil turn
in their graves as this hideous mock-
cry of their sacrifice", as they are by
the thought of being obliged to take
such a step alone. It seems quite ap-
parent that their sorrow over a break
wv th FrNance would be immensely as-

tinetly none of our affair as a nation.

Because of a rush of other matters
hiich lprecluded its thorough consid-
eratio, according to statements, given<
cut, the Board in Control of Athletics
postp1oned its de1(cision concerning the
proposed naming of Michigan's new -
field house in honor of Coach Field-
ing H. Yost until its next meeting in '
This is not the first time that the;
wtter has been tabled; although it is
true that when the Student council,
presented its petition Saturday the
climax of an intense campaign upon
the-part of student and alumni of the
university for Yost Field house was
From now until the April meeting
e~ntlbers of the Board wil have con-
sid eable time in which, Vo delib-
crate the request. They have the
facts in hand. They must realize the
weight of alumni and student opin-
ion; almost a quarter of a century of
exceptional service on the part of
Coach Yost is worthy of recognition;
the ;greatest athletic structure in any
university of the country today pro-
vides an appropriate tribiute.'
These facts should be weighed be-
fore the next meeting is called, so
that at that time the members of the i
Board in Control may finally decide
upon a matter which has aroused no l
little interest and anticipation upon

able iiiano recital which Guy Maier f
and Lee Pattison offered before the
audience in Hill auditorium recently
could not but marvel at the unique
manner in which they entertained
their listeners. Demonstrating a new 1
type in the realm of first class musi-
cal artistry, these pianists played:
with an uncanny unity, except in the
two brief numbers which apparently
were inserted into the repertoire for
the purpose of reflecting the merits
f the other compositions. m m
Thegse two movements, from a mod-!
ern Italian composition, which were
characterized as "not to be taken
too seriously" in the program note
were neither beautiful, comical nor
ingenious. Sadly enough, they repre-I
sent the ambitions of some talented
composer to add a bit of "music" to
the composiltionp of the world. Cer-
tainly there is no excuse for believ-
ing that such tomfoolery would even
be recognized as music by the mostr
savage of African cannibals. Lacking
in harmony and rhythm, the tones
were merely combined in such a way;
pis to produce a ridiculous snicker
throughout the audience, and in fact
even on the face of one of the pianists,.
who himself must have realized the
absolute lack of artistic merit. If the
purpose in playig 'these numbers
was to cause the- others to shine by
comparison, the artists can be com-
mended upon their choice; if not,
their taste was evidently off-color.
Mr. Wise Student says he's get-
ting most of the semester's work done
these weeks, 'cause he knows it will
be twice as hard to work when "ca-!
noeing time" comes. Now we know
why he's called wise.

Absolutely nothing.
