time in their caps and gowns. The
annual swing-out is one of the most
worthwhile of Michigan traditions
and should be respected by the mem-
bers of the classes participating as
well as other groups of the Univer-
sity. Freshmen usually ignore the
traditional dignity of the swing-out
procession by neglecting to remove
their pots. This in itself seems a
triviality, but if they have the proper

THE WHIRLWIND OF POLITICS
There is an old proverb that change
of pasture makes fat calves. If
change of front makes a good poli-
tician, Mr. Lloyd George should soon
be in office again. The, elusive Welsh-1
man never fails to astonish his audi-
ence by his passion for changing his
mind. Mr. Lloyd George, M. P. at-
tacks the position taken by Mr.
Lloyd George, Prime Minister. Then
Mr. Lloyd George, lecturer, reverses
nearly all the positions of Mr. Lloyd
George, peace delegate. Finally Mr.
Lloyd George journalist, undermines
all the opinions of Mr. Lloyd George,"
Member of Parliament, Prime Minis-
ter, lecturer, literateur, peace dele-
gate and' editor.
His latest spasm revolves around
the British debt to the United States
It appears that he has discovered, in
the words of the old saw, that "a good
honest man, nowadays, is but a civil
word for a fool." He announces that
Great Britain made a mistake to pay
her debt to the United States, and hej
denounces those who made that settle-
ment, using the argument that the
debtor who pays loses a good oppor-
tunity to save a needed penny. Mr.
Lloyd George seems to disregard the
great principle which has helpedI
maintain the commercial supremacy
of his country-its financial integrety.
In certain countries the phrase "on
the word of an Englishman" is used
to denote absolute reliability. Bri-
tain's credit remains good because,
contrary to the advice of the nimble-,
minded Mr. Lloyd George, Britain's'
bond is always honored.
-AND THE SCHOLAR IN POLITICS
Unless wit and sense and brilliant
intelligence and long thought on the
problems and policies of democracy
are considered disqualifications for
membership in the Indiana Legisla-
ture, the people of Indiana ought to
be glad to elect Mr. Meredith Nichol-
son for State Senator. Mr. Nicholson
wants the democrats to nominateI
him for that office. His platform isS
strong, simple and original. He pro-
soul was not stirred by the spectacle
he could not have been along the line
of march today.
Washington, who was covering this
great pageant for the Daily, reports
that this latter sentene is an exagger-
ation. It is his idea that the eyes of
the Times News man were so,
blurred with tears that he could not
be expected to give an accurate ac-
count of the affair.
Thils Spae Reserved For Junius
Another letter from AN UNKNOWN
FRIEND informs us that the Junius
had an attack of sleeping sickness
on a railroad track and will be un-
able to dictate for a few days.
We are beginning to believe that
Junius' friends, like Mr. Sherman's,
are a good deal more entertaIning
than he is himself. But we'll saV
the space for a few days.
Oh, you do hey? Well if you aren't
a clever kid!
Dear old Towles-(or is it Fowls
or Scowles-really I never can seem
to get that topping name of yours-
apologies if I haven't the right one).
Anyhow our room-mate came home
the other night with a black, black
eye-but we didn't notice being I
asleep. When whe woke to the glor-
ous vision (we've been long aspiring
to give him one ourselves) we just
hab. and hahed and rah rahed.
He rolled over, popped open his
good eye and with his usual romping
"There's many a black, black eye
they-say but none so bright as mine,!"
And after a while it came to me,
that that particular line is from the
"May Queen"-but tomorrow is the
first day o' May.
Judging from the diction, usage,
and punctuation, we should say that
this letter was from a him. There
were a lot of dashes-all of which
we have carefully preserved in our
prsentaon of the matter. You may

Perhaps we said something the
other day about Denizen's resolution
to choose a song for their Society.
All the members were ordered to
submit 3 stanzas in alternating iam-
bic tetrameter and trimeter (to .da
toda tada, tada tada tada); these
were to be judged and the best one
set to music.
Here is the first one done:
I'm proud to be a Denizen,
Handsome and brave and bright;
The Denizen is always found
Striving to do what's right.
The Denizens are firmly bound
By ties that ne'er can part;
Each member loves the rest of them
With all his little heart.
by the ubiquitous cheer leader and
his exhortations. Is it imperative that
the University shall excell in this art?
Why not allow Ohio State to be su-
preme in the art of waving a flag in
the cheering section? Why not dele-
gate the part of the chorus in the
Greek tragedy to the University of I-
linois? Why not surrender the role of
the giant Polyanna to Northwestern or
Purdue? If there are any reasons'
against such -policy I do not know
them nor have I ever known anyone
who could tell them to me. There is,
of course, the usual sob about the spir-
it of Michigan which must be sustain-
ed at all odds. But I wish to inquire
whether the intangible something, thel
sporadic enthusiasm which is termed
the spirit of Michigan, is based upon
the efforts of a uniformed troups of
trained acrobats who are dedicated
to the idea that organized cheering is
one way of winning football games or
debates. It is doubtful. This much is
certain, if organized cheering were
abandoned the spectator at an athletic
contest would be permitted to enjoy

GEORGE BERNARD ' SHAW in.
"Man and Superman" has undoubted-
ly composed one of his most brilliant
works, comparable only to the gigan-
tic fantasy of "Caesar and Cleopatra"
and "Fanny's First Play." The story.
itself is of weirdest .nature, starting
out in the first act as a kind of
Brieux sexy problem play, only to
end the entire dilemna as an ob-
vious travesy 23 minutes later. From
there the lay winds to the romantic
melodrama of a Spanish gypsy
camp and to the famous Don--Juan-
in-Hell dream scene.
This interlude in itself has evoked
the greatest discussion, partly be-
cause of its startling picture of
Hell as a refuge from the boredom
of Heaven and mainly Ljacause it
has absolutely nothing to do with
the main theme of the drama. In
the present production only a relative
fragment of the episode will be given,
chiefly, I suppose, in order that you
may go home sometime before twelve
or one o'clock.
The last act becomes sheer farce
from "The Brothers Karamzoff,"
with the heroine illogically pursu-
ing the distracted hero, the famous
John Tanner. The final conclusion,
obviously, is that maan's superman
must be woman, and there the cur-
tain falls: the play is ended.
