Wicked NewnYork City and its state
have a good chance of being reformed,
at least on Sunday ,if a bill now be-
ing drafted by reformers in the 1'g-
islature should be passed by that
body. It is proposed that New York-
ers do nothing on Sunday but go to
church. They are not to drive their
cars in the afternoon, unless they
have attended services in the morn-i
ing; they will not be perimittcd to
purchase gasoline or candy; the
shows will be closed, and the base-
ball bat will cease to swing. Pidture

A new war on history textbooks

rather histories which might be justly

which it has bA'n the custom to sl-r-
round them. Almost in the same

his bill is to prevent the circulation
of "propaganda going on in our
schools today designed to destroy
American ideals and t'aditicns" and
the use of any textbooks in any of the
public schools "which falsify the facts

A raviCw, by Robert Wagner.
After viewing a production such as
'North of 36," one is inclined to take
a, more optimistic view of the futurei
of the cinema. The pity of it is that'
there are not more pictures as well
done or as well conceived.
"North of 36" presents a phase of1
pioneer life which has received little
emphasis by our historians. Those
staunch Americans who fought their
way across the deserts in search ofl
gold and a. more free civilization have
ben glorified in story and on thet

The action of the Senate authorliz-
ing President Coolidge to call a h
ond arms conference was unnecessary
to say the least in view of the fact
that the administration only a few
days ago expressed its policy in theS
matter: namely, that the League of
Nations should first be given an op-
portunity to carry out the provisions
of its Protocol, Orafted at 11e assem-

The January'meeting of the Mat ineo
Musicale, held Wednesday afternoon
in the School of Music auditorium,
was devoted to composers of the to-
mantic period, and featurcd Annie

and Schubert songs. Mrs. (ray',
charming voice and personality insire
her a warm reception whenever she
appears in Ann Arbor. She was heard
to best advantage in Schumann's
"Der Nussbaum," anrl in "Wohin"
and "Hark, Hark the Lark" by Sehu-
bert. Frederick Alexander, who is
well known to local audiences as con-
ductor of the Ypsilanti Normal Cheir,
added immeasurably to the effective-
ness of Mrs. Gray's singing by his
beautiful accompaniments.
The rest of the program was given
over to a performance of Mendels-
sohn's brilliant D minor trio, by Sam-
vel P, Lockwocd, Ora Larthard, and
Maud Okkelberg, followed by Brahms'
"Liebeslieder," sung by Helen Rose,
soprano, Nora Hunt, contralto, "Wil-

The story is by Emerson Hough,
