to try to Christianize people who are
already Christians is difficult to un-
The idea that America is a free coun-
try or that the American college or
university student has the opportunity
of expressing himself as an individual,
of doing a little independent thinking,
has long since been shattered by the
stiffling of such activities.
A recent example of the usual
course pursued by "the authorities" is
that of the Boston University girl who
was dismissed as editor of The Bean
Pot, a humor publication, because it
was "too snappy and flippant." Two
of the particular charges against the
organ were made by Dean Everett W.
Lord, who objected to the institution
being called "Babbitt University,"
and by others who resented what they
referred to as "slurs" made in anI
editorial on the reserve officers train-
ing-corps, which has a unit at the uni-
While there might even be more
serious charges against the publica-
tion than these, it would seem more
prudent both for the sake of the uni-
versity and for the girl editor to have
let the incident pass without com-,
ment. Such things usually die a
natural death if the accusations are
unfounded, while if they are the truth
it would be better to admit it.j
The Gridiron banquet h;as long been
an institution at the nation's capital.
It has provided an opportunity for
statesmen, newspaper men, and other
notables to exchange sallies, and forI
every privileged guest to find out his
faults. The term "roasting" has been
well applied.j
At Michigan, an affair copied after
this model was started two years ago. I
The success of the first gathering in-
sured the banquet as a regular fea-
ture of the vear's nrozrami Srtndmts

It is, for instance, impossible tc
prove a critic right or wrong when he
says that the Opera is not striking
the right note. The Union Opera is a
case in point. Men work very hard
for weeks trying to do their best. The
Drama critic, one person in an audi-
ience of hundreds, has the privilege
of printing his opinions next morning.
If the opinions are faulty, as some of
them are, unfairness has been done.
Then there are the cases in which
there is no possible come-back. Not
so long ago a certain gentleman of
the campus gave a piano recital. He
was admonished next morning in the
Column, for his stage presence. He
was given advice on how better to
conduct himself, that his stage pres-
ence might nok stand in the way of
future fame. This gentleman, of
course, could not reply. Hardly could
his friends. With respect to outside
celebrities, criticism has ranged from
the abject worship stage to that of
fierce denunciation. Again, one must
believe that the dominating idea in
the lives of these young critics is that
of exposing their own brightness to
the admiring gaze of an enthralledI
campus. It may be good practice in
journalism for the critic, but how fair
is it?
Thet least I would ask of the Daily
is, that no person having any connec-
tion with dramatic or musical organ-
izations be regularly appointed to
write reviews. The implication here
is obvious.
Further, I believe that the Column
has, in general, been a standing ex-
ample of bad manners, bad taste and
bad sportsmanship. If my reactionsE
are normal, the Column should be
radically revised or discontinued.

When Jesus Christ ' charged his,
disciples to go into all the world to'
preach His gospel, He started what
we now know as the missionary move-
ment. Whether He meant this state-
ment to be taken literally or not by
His followers is a question; that it{
has caused a great amount of dupli-
cation of efiort and trespassing upon
the toes of other faiths than Chris-
tianity is certain.
The most recent example of the ab-
surdity of many forms of missionary
work may be seen in the actions of the
"Congress on Christian Work in
South America," held about a week
ago in Montevideo, Uruguay. At this
assembly there were more than two
hundred educators, °medical authori-
ties and leaders in social and relig-j
ious activities of the continent, gath-'
ered under the direction of a commit-
tee of American church leaders to dis-
cuss the best means of developing
this "wide field for their activity and
many 'unoccupied fields' which they
should enter with church, school and
hospital within the next few years."
There may be some cause for out-
lining a program for the "unoccupied
fields," that is: those which have nev-
er been reached by the represent-
atives of any religion and where the
people are no better tha¢. heathens,
The fact is that a majority of the mis-
sionary work in South America, as
,elsewhere, has not been of this va-
riety. Rather have the over-zealous
Christians sought to force their re-
ligious views upon peoples who al-
ready have a religion of their own.
Among such fields are those of China
with her .-Confucionism, Buddhism,
and Shintoism, Arabia with her Mo-
hammedanism, and India with her'
Brahmanism, as well as many sec-
tions of South America already under
the control of Catholicism -

tians, or the Mohammedans, or the

A review, by Valentine Davies.
A sort of refreshing informality
pervaded the proceedings in Hill audi-
torium. Because we are such a large
institution and because the auditorium
formidable, it has come to be almost
traditional that any event therein
must perforce assume all the stiff
formality of a first night at the Metro-
politan. The frank, amateur, infor-
mality of the Student Friendship vau-
deville, added materially to the vari-
ous acts, which were in themselves,
for the most part highly entertaining.
All there was by way of scenery
were a number of screens of mixed
sizes and shapes to facilitate the en-
trances and exits. Before these first
appeared Phil Diamond and his co-
horts, who with a little more pub-
licity would be as popular an organ-
ization as any we know of. With
them a Mr. Visel of opera fame did a
bewilderingly solo dance.
Followingthis thestars of the late
Junior Girls' play, presented their
best numbers to the accompaniment of
Mr. Diamond. Five critics have prais-
ed the "Castles in Spain" company in
five different ways. There is little
else to say except that we join their
ranks in praise. The Midnight Sons'
quartet, later the Uion Opera quar-
tet, proved very popular andl receivel
numerous encores.'
Mr. George Westcott, however, offer-
ed the most unique entertainment of
the evening by appearing with a per-
fectly innocent looking saw and a
bow and remdering a kind of music
which is a combination between a
violin and a Hawaiian guitar. He also
made music with a very normal look-
ing dipper. 'The Potboiler" a one-
act play proved quite amusing. As
the audience warmed up, the players
became broader and broader in their
farce. It ended in a sort of high class
The professional touch of the eve-
ning was given by Stefan Kosake-
vitch, the baritone. He sang three
songs unusually well, and rounded
out a very nice evening, indeed.

mester, the Play Production classes

A Review, by Lydia Kahn.
The University Symphony orchestra
showed a marked improvement in
their performance Sunday afternoon
at Hill auditorium. Despite the fact
that their ensemble work is still ex-
tremely ragged, the separate groups
were better, specially the wind sec-
tion. Mortimer Wilson's overture,
"New Orleans" was not a very inspir-
ing opening number; it seemed to be
merely a conglamoration of romantic
nineteenth century melodies. Viux-
temp's Ballade and Polonaise were bet-
ter. The orchestra had evidently fin-
shed tuning and were beginning to set-
tLie down.....it is strange that so many
amateurs never get to the point until

the second or third numbers: I sup-
pose that they have to break the ice
first, and than recover from the shock.
Marian Strubble Freeman, the solo
violinist, played with a great deal of
self-confidence and self-possession,
both of which were a treat. Inci-
dently, it is a very difficult tack for as
good a violinist as she undoubtedly
s, to perform a concerto with an ama-
teur orchestra as back-ground.
Beethoven's Pastoral symphoiy was
somewhat of an undertaking, but itI
