Censorship In Any Form Is Not
.Solution, Says Miss Bonstelle

L : -
(Special To The Paily)
Evanston, Ill., March 13--Michigan1
nd Illinois each qualified five men in
the preliminaries of the 440 yard dash,
the half mile, and the bole vault in
the Western Conference indoor meet
trials here tonight. Northwestern
was next with three men qualifying
while Iowa and Wisconsin each qual-
iied two and Ohio one. Trials, semi-
final heats and the finals of the meet
will be run off in Patton gymnasium
tomorrow night.
Michigan's greatest showing came
in thp half mile and th. nDle vault.

As Miss Bonstelle pointed out in her
curtain speech following the perform-
ance of Lewis Beach's "The Goose
Hangs High," the production yester-
day afternoon marked for her the re-
alization of a keen desire often ex-
pressed by the late President Burton,
to her that the Bonstelle company
might be broughtinto closer contact
with the University.
During Dr. Burton's live years at
Smith College, Miss Bonstelle as di-
rector of the Northampton Municipal
theatre came in very close contact
with him, so that the appearance be-
came an especially fitting fulfillment
of his wish.
In speaking of the play juries now
being used in New York to curtail the
startling flood of offensive produc-
tions, she pointed out the serious,
danger of the system. "By such a
method," said Miss Bonstelle, "manyj
frankly sensational dramas could con-
ceivably evade prosecution by minor
corrections of the script, only to have
the censorship fall on a truly artistic
play that failed to accept such a com-
Censorship in any.form, she declar-
ed, invariably pnded as an intolerable
tyranhy, and the only finally satisfac-
tory solution would lie in a mutual

agreement between the managers
themselves to exclude plays of a
merely sensual appeal.
Speaking of Eugene O'Neil's "De-
sire Under the Elms," an example of
the more distinguished type of sexual
drama, Miss Bonstelle definitely ob-
jected to O'Neil's morbid point-of-
view. While recognizing in him a
progressive artist, she feels that such
unswervingly gloomy pictures of life
are exaggerated and unrepresentative.
A play in her opinion should pre-
sent, not necessarily a constantly
optimistic attitude, but at least a
theme that somehow leaves one ele-
vated and refreshed. Such consistent-
ly revolting plays as "The Straw,"
"Diff'rent" and "Beyond the Horizon"
appeal to her as revolting, even dis-
gusting-surely not the higher pur-
pose of the theatre.
Finally, Miss Bonstelle expressed
her firm belief in the future of the
American stage, especially through
such progressive authors as Lewis
Beach: She looks upon the present
interest in fine drama as a renaissance
of the stage in this country, and she
regards the unique success of the
Bonstelle Playhouse as an encourag-
ing practical example of such a move-



' DONATE $150 AND $200
Further returns in the campus Student Friendship drive last night
showed that the half-way mark toward the $4,000 goal had almost been
reached, while contributions which had not yet been counted would easily
make the total thus far received more than $2,000.
The. largest single donation of th e drive is the $200 which was given
by the Board in Control of Student P ublications at their recent meeting, a
gift which was ths chief factor in raising th~e fund to the position it now
occupies. Students in the Ann Arbor high school have made the second
largest donation with the $150 which they collected among themselves yes-

Goldkette's and Wilson's Orchestras

Year Men
Freshmen of the class of '28 crowded
the ballroom of the Union last night
for their first University class dance,
the annual Frosh Frolic. Jean Gold-
kette's Orange Blossom orchitra of
Detroit, alternating with Paul Wil-
son's Wolverines; furnished continu-
ous music for more than 260 couples
that attended.
Harry Grinnell, '28E, general chair-
nan of the Frolic committee, with
Miss Helen White, of Amherstburg,
Ontario, led the grand march to the
traditional tune off "The Victors,"
played by Goldkette's orchestra, short-
ly after 10:30 o'clock.
The snow, turning to a cold rain, did
not cut down the attendance, although
many of the freshmen with their
scanty "pots" longed for the more
protective headgear of the upper
classmen who were present.
men who were present.
The Union ballroom was transform-
cd for the occasion by a committee
under Henry Nelly, '28E. Palms were
placed around the orchestra stands at
both ends of the room, and a multi-
tude ot varicolored baloons were sus-
pended over the heads of the dancers.
Japanese lanterns furnished the
only means of illumination, with the
exception of two large spotlights, that
swept the floor. In the center of the
room was a fountain banked with
flowers. At one end of the ballroom
was a large wreath, of flowers, denot-
ing the numerals, '28.1
The color and splendor of the dance
was heightened by the vivid gowns of
the girls. Miss White wore a gown

Mrs. Mansfield
Lauds Efforts
Of Relief Work
"I cannot say too much in favor of
the Student Friendship fund," declar-
e4 Mrs. Richard Mansfield yesterday
afternoon, following the matinee per-
formance of "The Goose Hangs High."
Mrs. Mansfield, who received a tre-
mendous ovation for her part in the
production, was an active participant
in relief work in Poland in 1922-23,
and was engaged in work th'at brought
her into intimate contact with the
activities of the European Student re-
"There is not a vestige of propa-
ganda or partiality connected with
this relief work." Mrs. Mansfield ad-
ded, "and it has undoubtedly been a
wonderful means of building up in-
ternational understanding. I am
deeply sorry that I cannot actively as-
sist your present drive to furnish
funds for this admirable enterprise."
Mrs. Mansfield's work in Poland was
concerned with the relief of woman
students, such as the building of
dormitories. She acted purely upon
her own interest in the work, serving
under the European Student relief, off
which the Student Friendship is the
American branch.
"You may quote me in any manner
as entirely favorable to the Student
Friendship fund, for I know by eT-
perience what remarkable work this
organization is carried on," was her
final remark.

general canvassing, will be the method

campaign. Last year, final receipts
exceeded those of any one day of the
drive, and the same procedure is an-
ticipated in the present drive.
Remittances by check should be ad-
dressed to the Student Friendship
fund at either The Daily, in the Press
building, or to the Michigan Union.
Special check blanks may be secured
at the Union, if desired.
As soon as the quota is reached, the
University's contribution to the nation-
al Student Friendship fund will be
sent to the national headquarters, and
from there will be used for operation
of the student kitchen at Kiev. The
University maintained this kitchen for
three months la'st year, feeding more
than 2,000 students daily, and the de-
sired $4,000 will enable the same oper-
ation this year.
Emphasizing another phase of the
fund, Pres. Henry N. MacCracken of
Vassar has pointed out that idealism
among studenits of today is indicated
by their assistance in relief work. He
