Night Eitor--GEORGE W. DAVIS
The announcement that Robert
Frost, New England poet, will return
to Ann Arbor next fall as a fellow in
lettors for an indefinite stay marks
a significant step in the progress of
the university as a center of art and in-
tellectual development. Faculty, stu-
dents, and townspeople will welcome
back the man who sq profitably held
the feclowshi min creative arts for two
years. His genial personality, his in-
cessant activity, and his sincere ef-
fort to promote close contact wiji
the student body made the fellowship
decidedly worthwhile during that per-

lieved by most competent political ob
servers that these primarily socialistic
measures will never be attained until
the Labor party gains a clear majo-
ity, a result which even the wildest
prophets hesitate to predict for the
coming election. The fourth plank in
the list, relief of unemployment, is o
course advocated in one way or an
other by all parties. The failure o
the present ministry to attain success
in solving this most difficult economi
problem in England will be one o
the principal point of criticism foi
its opponents.
The Conservative, party w~ich is
conceded the victory will run on a
general platform encouraging trade
extension, health and unemploymen
insurance, and stability of govern
ment. The Liberals on the other hand
appear to be the only party which
is not confident of success. They talk
airily concerning "peace, security
and progress," but have so far failed
to enunciate any clear and concret
set of principles by which they wil
stand. Liberal newspapers discuss th
situation in a gloomy light, finding
in the short period preceding the elec
tion a cause for dismay. Their idea
concerning the proposed Russian loan
and the coal andrpower propositoI
of Mr. Lloyd George require a lon
period of public education before
their success could be assured. Some
talk has been heard concerning a
coalition between the Conservative
and Liberals, but it is highly improb
able that the former party will agre
since the real contest is between i
and the Labor party.
The issue which resulted in th
forcing of an election will in all prob
ability have little part in the cam
paign discussion. Labor leaders re
pudiated promptly all responsibilit
for the election and it is thought tha
Liberal leaders will have some diffi
culty in explaining just why the
forced the issue of the Campbell pro
Almost coincident with the ovation
given Mr. Macbonald by the Labo
convention in London, was the publi
-ation of an article in-the intellectua
laborite review, The New Statesman
organ of the independent Laborit
party, denouncing the premier for
having brought tl tcountm&y into an
absurd political situation. Admitting
and even praising his success in for
eign affairs, the article declares tha
as a prime minister he has been a
complete failure. His attitude in "re
fusing to eat out of Mr. Asquith's
hand" is also condemned since it is
believed to have alienated more than
4,000,000 Liberal votes. It is hard t
judge of the importance of this ar.
tile. If it represents any considerable
majority in the Labor element a crisis
in the party and possibly a split in its
ranks seems inevitable.
No one can venture to predict the
outcome. Labor believes it will make
a substantial gain, swept to success
on the wave of public sentiment; the
Conservatives are equally confident
that such issues as the Soviet treaty
and unemployment have sounded the
doom of Labor power. One thing is
certain however: the fallen ministry's
pronounced success in foreign affairs
in negotiating the Dawes plan and in
promotion of accord among European
nations will more than outweight any
propoganda concerning its domestic
Anonymous conmunications will be
disregarded. The names of comnuni-
cants will, however, be regarded as
confidential upon request.

Of added interest is the fact that
Mr. Frost will meet some classes and
will be available at all times for
consultations with students interes-
ted in writing. While a member of thos
faculty at Amherst he has had distinct'
success as a teacher, contradicting
the usual conception concerning a
poet and writer. His presence has
been an inspiration in the eastern
college and will have a similar effect
at Michigan.
Probably the most important feature
of the appointment is found in the fact
that it represents the policy of the
University administration in attempt
ing to obtain for Michigan the high-
est type of educator. Whatever one
may think of Mr. Frost's ability as a
poet, he has attained highest distinc-
tion in American letters, and his rep
utation is considerable. His presence
