IEditor, The A.Michigan Daily:
Your leading article "Photoplay
Chinaman" which appeared in The
Daily yesterday seemed to justify the
unfair representations made by the
motion picture producers of Chinese
life and manners 1ather than to lend
your support to their immediate elim-
ination. While the article agreed that
such a portrayal of things Chinese is
an injustice to the Chinese people, the
article went on to say that "all char-
acters of a photoplay cannot be he-
roes; there must be some with defi-
ciencies or undei-rable qualities". It
continued to say that "after all, it is
like telling a novelist how to draw his
characters,-for at basis the movie is
a story." Such statements show the
misunderstanding of the real obje-.
tion in the eyes of the Chinese peo-
ple towards the misrepresentations of
the moving picture industry.
It is conceded, however, that in a.
story or play all characters cannot be
heroes, nor do we wish to appear to
advise a novelist in the manner he
draws his characters. But the unde-
sirable elements should not be por-
trayed at the expense of friendly na-
tions by the ignorant screen dramat-'
ists. However, we do not mind so
much if a film actor or actress imi-
tating Chinese personality plays the
role of a villain or a vamp, but what
we do op ose is that he or she acts
contrary to Chinese custom. In most
of the pictures ordinary Chinese or
persons playing the part of Chinese'
wore mandarin robes that were worn
by Chinese officials more than a doe-
ado ago. In* the picture, "East is;
:Wpst", a Swedish actor portrayed the
part of a rich China.;e restaurant own-

manner of waiking. There are nu-
merous instances in which our peo-
ple, customs, and life are wrongfully
depicted. The above mentioned exam-
ples are the least objectionable, yet:
serve as a perceptible contrast be-
tween actual conditions of Chinese life
at home and the conditions appearing
on the screen. In short, we take ex-
1ception not to the undesirable roles
in which Chinese characters take part
but to their manners and ways of act-
ing which are totally opposed to mod-
ern Chinese life.
No sensible person believes the
screen to be a medium of instruction
t to the public. The American people
as a whole have so little knowledge

A man coining to the University
with special- ability or knowledge in a
certain line usually feels it his duty
to enter campus activities in whichs
his services may be of value. On the
whole, the student publications em-
brace' the most interested writers of
the student body, and certainly the
\Trsity teams represent the best ath-
letic powers, while other interests
such as the drama call - forth the
most able students for participation.
ln the case of musical activities,
however, this is not the case. 'Ihe
best Imusicans of the campus are too
often not found in the band, the
Union orchestra, the Opera, or otlyer
musical activities. The best musi-
cians are usually found in the student'
orchestras playing professionally upon
the campus or in the vicinity of Ann}
If an individual possesses sufficient
talent to be able to earn money.
through his tntsic,, no one can deny
that it is a perfectly legitimate and
enjoyable way to work. But the ten-j
dency has shown itself in regard to
the great majority of those who play
professionally, to forget entirely that
they are enrolled in a University
where othersare; giving of their tal-
ents for its benefit. They adopt the:
policy of "no pay, no play".
A number of Michigan's musical ac-
tivities need the services of just such
men as those who refuse to serve
unless they are paid. As a result,
these activities suffer just as would
football if the entrants refused tol
work their long hours each day with-
out recompense. The quality of Mich-
igan's musical activities does not af-
fect only Ann Arbor. It affects the
opinion of outsiders concerning the
University wherever the Band, the.
Glee club, or the Opera travels.
If the group or musicians who com-,

It seems only consistent, then, that
men should carry into their places of
bussiness at least some of the beauty
and attractiveness characteristic of
their residences. A certain prominent
doctor has placed his valuable collec-
tion of oil paintings in the rooms of
his offices, not so much for the pleas-:
ant surroundings they will afford his
patients, as to make attractive for'
himself the place in which he spends
many hours every day). In the case
of a certain corporation the decora-
tion of its offices repaid the stock-
holders not only in personal satisfac-,
tion but also by a 30 per cent increase
in the efficiency of its employes. Other
instances of such artistic pride in
places of business might be found,
but they are far too few.
To (build 'beautiful homes and then
spend two-thirds of one's waking life
in drab and unattractive business sur-
roundings is a practice which future
generations may gradually brand as
foolish. But the sooner Men realize
that their places of occupation are
also places of abode, the sooner will

MAINTAIN .LO('AL LOR
(Cornell Daily Sun)
For a period of about 30 years the
Cornell Masque, following the customs
of the lay, has in some form or other
presented its annual production. It
has gone the rounds of dramatic inter-
pretation, and the successes it has
encountered have varied from the neg-
ligible to something approaching gen-
.n uine achievement.
Taking all factors into considera-
tion, howev;-r, the Masque has not
been particularly fortunate. The or-
ganization has entertained the falla
cious idea that it must take its annual
trip to make a reputation, whereas, in
order to be a success that reputation
must be gained before the trip is un-
dertaken. Witness the result. It has
never enjoyed the undivided approval
dhem of its audiences, and several years
ago the most elaborate tour ever plan-
ned was forsaken when but half com-
The Masques production this year,
"Ulysses of Ithaka", marked a radical
change in policy, one which may
eventually estallish the organization-
on its proper basis. The play was
written for Cornell; it was localized
o that its appeal was directed to
Cornellians and Ithacans. An indica-
tion of its influence on the two aud!-
ences 'before which it was given may
be seen in the fact that the Saturday
Z night audience was more appreciative,
or at least more demonstrative, than
for Sun that of Thursday evening, which con-'
tained the greater number of Juniorl
Week guests . Obviously the produc-
tion would not "get-away" before an
unprejudiced house in Kalamazoo or
Oshkosh, but here in the University'
