This year, more even than last, the
all-campus election will mean a de-
cided expression of undergradute
opinion. The Student council has
worked for one year under its par-
tially complete new constitution with
very definite results to those .who..havei
watched its march. The officers of
the council have felt the necessity for
a wider jurisdiction in many matfei's,
especially in those dealing with dis-
ciplinary powers. The officers and
members of the council are repre-
senting the students, they are endeav-
oring to carry out what they believe
to be the desires of the undergraduate
body. The true expression of student
opinion then must be evidenced in
the all-campus vote on election day.
The Union, also, merits the atten-
tion of the voters in order that the
best administrators may be selected
to carry on the work for the next
school year.
Each year candidates for the student
ofilces on the Union are selected by
the Union nominating committe from
the undergraduate body. A fair and
square effort is made to include in
these nominations only the men, who,
through their work in the Union, have
evinced the proper interest and exe-
cutive ability which will carry theI
work on in the best possible manner.
However, in order that all members
of the Union~ may be allowed an equal
opportunity, nominations are placed
on the ballost by, petition.. ery often
this agent of democratic government
of the student club, the petition, is
gravely misused by the und'ergrad-
uates themselves. Students must re-
alize that in signing a petition they
are committing themselves to an af-
firmation that the man named in pe-
tition is a worthy man to represent
them in the executive place for which

field ;if he wishes, a student would
have no basis of complaint.
This is the system that has been
used at California, Harvard and sev-."
eral other schools for many years and
has been found the most workable yet
tried out. At the former school the
men and women each have a cheer-
ing section. Usually the men's block
aggregates 3,000 students. There is
no reason why Michigan could notI
equal this. Such a group of. cheerers,
if they are well drilled in the yells
and songs should be an inspiration to
not only the team fighting on the field
but to returning alumni and outsid-
ers as well.

PLAYERS, who are to present nine
performances this coming week at
the Garrick Theater, Detroit, are,in
all sincerity, the world's greatest or-
ganization, of actors. I know this
from the, opinions of such world-fam-
ous critics as Gordon Craig, Bernarl
Shaw, Kenneth Macgowan, and Shel-
don Cheney, whose'judgement thee
is every reason to respect, and be-
cause I have seen them personally
in New York this winter In Tcherov's
"Uncle Vanya."
Their work is remarkable, to begin
with, because every one of the sixty-
four actors are artists in every sense I
of the word, trained through long
years 'of experience in the most min-
ute subtleties of their craft. Certain
of their members, such as Ivan Mosk-
vin, Olga Tarasova, Madame Knipper-
Tchekhova, and the director, Constan-
tin Stanislavsky, himself, are inspired
genuises, as well, recognized every-
where as not only the greatest actors
in Russia but among the greatest in
the world.
Their chief success ,-ts been found-
ed on their skill ii realistic drama.
which raises the m1 t sordid, gruel-
ling tragedy to the heights of inspir-d
idealism. It is rather dAlcult to cx-
plain this art in that our concejtion
of realism stops when the local Bel-
ascos have placed seven hundred
pieces of properties on the stage and
called it a day. These players, on the
other hand, see through this surface
to the peculiarly exalted pathos of the
everyday humdrum of the world and
' end with a picture as moving and
wonderful as it is startling.
Added to this, of course, there is
their remarkable technical skill in
ensemble and make-up, which is so
perfectly worked out that every role
down to the minor supers are por-
trayed with the utmost finish and skill.
Finally, they have. the virtues of the'
repertory system raised to such a
high plane that every member of the
company is able to assume at a mo-
ment's notice practically every char-
acter in the repertoire. As an illus-
tration, it is actually true that the
actors are not informed until the af-
