"It is proposed to lift the financial
burden from the shoulders of the
band, to give the students concerts
without charging for admission, and to
make the hand attractive to students
who are eligible to play." Such is the
future of Michigan's Varsity band as
summed up by an article in The Daily
last Sunday. This impressive program
is largely the inspiration of Robert A.
Campbell, treasurer of the University.
Certainly if it goes across it will be
due to his untiring efforts in behalf1
of the organization.
There- can be no doubt that pro-
posed addition to the tuition fee will
meet with the approval of the student
body as well as provide a definite
and adequate sourceof income for the
band. The Regents can pass the:
measure in the confidence that they
have the hearty endorsement of those
most interested. Already the Union
and the Athletic association are sub-
sidized by the tuition fee . There is
no reason why an organization as im-
portant as the band should not re-
ceive like treatment.
With this source of income, plus
that received annually from the Ath-
letic association, there is no reason
why the band should not flourish
even more than in the past. It is al-
ready the finest university band in the
midwest from the' standpoint of mu-

A review, by Robert Henderson.
Back in the eighteen-eighties there
were also amateur dramatics. Theatri-
cals were then something of a fad,
and everyone, especially the adoles-
cent daughters, had a frightfully jolly
time. Tfhe plays,. too, were such sweet
things, always written by some lady
of the greatest morality and respeta-
rset-bility, perhaps even of actual rank.
The stories of these divertissements
hardly ranged over a wide area of ex-
perience or ideas, but they were most
gentile, often delightfully allegoric'l.
There was, perhaps, a Douce Coeur,
which translates into something like
Sweetheart, who was the belle of the
town and a dear, as the boys say.
Then there were a dozen, two dozen
additional roles to take care of the
other ambitious ladies: Wisdom,
Poetry, Song and Dance, Love, Sor-
row, Power, Riches, the Town Beadle,
two balloons and a schnapps called
In the end, Sweetheart finally is
placed in Love's arms as the cupids-
they always had cupids for a really
au fait production in those grand old
days of bustles and bosoms-scattered
gardenias at the blessed couple's
dainty feet.
These, after all, were the only vir-
tues lacking in the Masques' produc-
tion last evening of Lady Egerton's
"The Masque of Two Strangers." But
