not be done. France has simply been:
another demonstrator of the truth of
this statement-else the plan of the
experts committee would be of a dif-
ferent nature than it is.
The experts take the viewpoint that:
the "control commission" which willJ
supersize the German budget, finances,
and railways will be as valuable to
Germany as it will to France. They
contend that the creditors are. entitl-
ed to take precautionary measures~
against defaults, and that the debtor
should be glad to have an impartial
audit of its resources, so there will
not be any danger of suffering any ill-
advised or hasty measures from the
hot-headed creditor, who believes it-
self being defrauded,
Such a system should in time prove
itself a satisfactory means of settl-
ing the controversy. Action of this
sort will go far to promote better
feelings between Frenchman and Ger-
man, and will be a means of saving
both parties much money.

THE BETTER, GRADE

EXPOSITION
There is a course in English His-
tory given at the University by one
Professor Turner. The course is a4
very popular. one; so popular, in factj
that the auditorium in the Natural
Science building, large enough for!
such drawing-cards as Psych 7 andI
History 1, is not big enough to con-'
tain all the guys and girls that would
pursue the course.
So awhile back they all moved over
to the Sarah Caswell Angell hall in
the Barbour gym-a more commod-
ious room, in which the class was
quite comfortable. And thus things
went on for a time.
And then one day the person who
does those things said to the profes-I
sor in charge of the course that he
would have to abandon Sarah C. A
hall and biff back to the cramped old
quarters where there were 30 more
students than seats.
Why? says the gentleman in charge
of the course.

NOT SCHOLARS BUT PRA(TICAL
MEN
Co-education, according to the Ca-
nadian humorist, Stephen Leacoct, is
not a good thing. There is truth in
his argument that girls do not spea;
freely in mixed classes. Mr. Leacock
assumes that more real scholars, both
men and women, would be produced
were the co-educational system in
A merica and Canada replaced by the
English system. This is undoubtedly
true.
But the world's greater need today
is not scholars The world needs
;,r.tical, men and women. Educati'on
hi Iiericy, a training which will
prepa e' ii and women to take their
l practical ife,-these are the;
.i l es bout which ejery educa-
1li: ystr'emnshould be constructed.}
A 4ytemvwhth ineglects these aims!
ig~ ar~wed tihe significance of edu-
Cation.
A recluse atmosphere has its bene-
fits, Ii. is truly a scholastic atmos-1
p;here. Duft a co-educational institu-
tin more nearly creates the atmos-l
phere of real life. If girls cannot a-
spire to their best in the classroom
because of the presence of men how
awe they. to succeed as co-workers
with men in later years? For co-
workers, according to our present so-
cial system, they must be. And if the
educational aspirations of men are
shackled because of the presence of
girls how can these men shake off the
shackles in later life and at the same
time assume their normal positions in
society?
Michigan students need not feel that
they are losing something because this
University is a co-educational insti-
tution. Rather, they should realize
that it is the co-educational nature of
the University that creates here the
greatest of educational assets, the at-j
mosphere of democracy.
JNTERNATIONAL COOPERATION
It is quite probable tbat the plan
decided upon by the experts commit-
tee, to whom the question has been
referred, will prove satisfactory to
both Germany and the Allies as aI
means of managing the Ruhr district.

The nature and uses of our so-call-'
ed necessities are, as their name idi-a
cates, determined largely by influenc-
es beyond our control. But we can
pick our amusements.
Just what brand of toothpick or um-
brella is to be sold in Ann Arbor
is a question to be determined large
ly without the will or control of the
majority of the populace. But we are
ourselves the makers of our plays
and movies. If Ann Arbor likes wes-
tern movies Ann Arbor will soon find
itself plentifully supplied with that
particular type of picture. If the city
evinces a desire for good stage plays,
it will soony get them. , -
Ann Arbor is large enough, and cul-
tivated enough, to appreciate and
merit the best stage plays on tour
throughout the country. Residents
have always wished that more shows
would come to play in this city; yet
when a high class production does
come it is too often neglected. This
is discouraging to the good shows that
contemplate coming here.
If the people of Ann Arbor want
more good plays to come here there
is but one course to pusue. When
yog, have a eboice between a show in
,D tr it' o- sne o her city today and
a how ere net wee w&it a week.
So9. the waits b tWeen sl o s will not
hbe lng and the average playgoer will
find nearly all he has the time or i-
ecliation toQseo right here in his, own
town.f
KEEP OFF =
Signs of spring are everywhete,-
little rivers on the sidewalks, house-
wives shaking dust mops out the back
doors, geese flying north. But the sur-
st sign of spring is the one whihb
reads, "Keep Off the Grass."
Colleges everywhere are already
considering the annual problem which
comes with spring, how to preserve
the campus lawn. Two tendenciespre-
vail. Vigilance committees, wires
stretched across the "short-cuts", and
the hackneyed signs of "Keep Off" are
on the program of one' of the south-
ern colleges. But the University of
Minnesota declares that wire fences
and signs are more unsightly than
beneficial. This university will appeal
to the students' loyalty, and will trust
to their honor to aid in the preserva-
tion of a beautiful campus. They hope
to establish a tradition which will im-
pel students to keep off the grass.
This question has notyet been con-
hsidered at Michigan. Furthermore, it
need not be. Ifevery student will
£oresake the short-cuts for the sake
of preserving the lawns the question
of campus beauty at Michigan will be
solved.

Some Lines to the Scaffolding on the
East Wall of U Hall
They built the scaffold wide and high;
They aimed the thing right at the
sky;
They 'built with joists and bolts and
bars;
They yearned and burned to touch the
stars-
It took the curses, prayers, and tears
Of two strong, expert scaffoldeers.
But do you think they built the thing
To moint upon and praises sing?
Or pluck a golden planet, ripe
For plucking?-No, by Cripe!
They built the structure just to mend
The rivulet of gutter-pipe
That leaves the eaves without a bend
And trickles down the wall ! ! !

There is a young lad on this paper
who has only worked on it for about
a semester and an eighth, and he has
ill of a sudden got an idea into his
little nob that he thinks will revolu-
tionize the whole Michigan Daily and
improve that paper some 150 percent.
His idea, robbed of the magic rhet-
eric with which he presents it, is
simply this: You move up the big
sign at the top that says "THE MICH-
IGAN DAILY"-move it up about half
an inch, see, and then you have a
half an inch more at the bottom of
ach column on the front page. There
are seven cols, 180 issues, seven times
180 (he almost~ chokes you with the
'heer brilliancy of his statistics) is
1,2G0, and 1,260 times half an inch is'
'30, which is the number of inches'
you have more than you ever had be-
fore.
Cowles, upon hearing this gaudy
plan, hied him at once to the privacy
of his office and indulged in some in-
dependent mathematics. If they save
(he figured) 630 inches on the front
page, they'll probably jolly soon get
the idea of doing the same thing with
page 2, 3, and 4. And the idea of
having an extra half inch at the bot-
tom of his col every day pained Cow-
les, and he made great dole. . . .
We shall fight this new plan to the
last ditch.
* * *
THIS TROVE 1USI!ESS
All the lads are much wrought up
about this -boy that found the 100,000
smackers while he was knocking down
an old house. They all say gee I wish

"Michigan is going to want between
15,000 and 20,000 tickets for that game
in the Stadium next October 18," said
E. E. (Tad) Wieman, former Wolver-
ine football captain and present line
coach under "Hurry Up" Yost, while
on the campus recently.
Will that Stadium be finished for;
their reception?
"To complete the Stadium this year
means not only that there must be
better collections from subscribers
than there have been In the past, but
that a few loyal alumni, who are mem-
bers of the executive committee, must
pledge their personal credit-sign
their own names as security for the
large amount which must be borrow-
ed from banks. I cannot and I will
not permit them to pledge their credit
for this large sum unless I am certain
in my own mind that subscribers will
maintain their payments to such an
extent that I can feel sure that this
loan will be paid off in the allotted
time, relieving the indorsers o this
heavy obligation.
"What am I to tell them? What
will your answer be?"
This is from G. Huff, who, as he
says, has "always tried to look on the
bright side of Stadium financial af-
fairs.'
There are 2,470 students who are
delinquent on their fifth installment.
Will that Stadium be finished or will
Michigan have the laugh on us next
October?
A IISGRAVE TO THE UNIVERSITY
(The Yale News)
Apparently understanding of 'what isj
meant by sportsmanship is so want-
ing in one element which forces its
presence upon winter sports as to be
wholly absent. The conduct of some
spectators at the last basketball game
particularly during the first half, wa
disgusting.
Perhaps the rottenness did not come
1 from Yale men. Probably a consider-
able portion of it did not. But what-
ever its source, credit for such an ex-
hibition of cheappess, such a com- 9
plete disregard of the elements of
courtesy, of fair play, of the ethics
of the game, ureeps directly to the
Meet of the Unlversity -to slobber and
fawn unpleasantly. If 'spectators re-
fuse to act as gentlemen, in justice
to itself and4its opponents the Univer-
sity should tale steps to exclude there
and to expe #hem from the veinity
of any athetIc contest. Spec ators
who have a$y respect for the cus-
toms which re violated should bend
every effort .sta mping out an ipsid-
ious type of pffense. At present the
situation is a reproach to anyone car-
ing for Yale.

THE DENISHAWN DANCERS
Ruth St. Denis, Ted Shawn and their
company of 24 talented Denishawn
Dancers will make two appearances in
Detroit tomorrow at Orchestra hall.
The matinee program will include
"Music Visualizations" of works by
Beethoven, Chopin, Chaminiade, Schu-
mann, Brahms and Liszt; a "Spanish
Suite"; "In the Garden"; ":o hitl";
and "Orientalia". The' evening pro-
gram consists of "rhe Sjpiri t of the
Sea", "The Feather of the Dawn",
"Cuadro Flamenco", "Ishtar of the
Seven Gates" and a long group of Di-
vertissements.
In the matter of progressive fresh-
ness and originality, the Denishawn

dancers are the most advanced ballet
organization in this country and, ac-
cording to their enthusiastic European
critics, even in the world. At least it
is conceded that Ruth St. Denis and
her husband are very great artists in
