WANTED-A FOUNDATION
Michigan's law school ranks as one
of the best in the country, yet there
is one major branch which needs de-{
veloping,-the graduate work. The
weakness of the law school in this
regard was recently brought to the
attention of the University by Dean
Henry M. Bates in his annual report
to the President.I
With the completion of the first sec-
tion of the Lawyers' club, the law
school has gained much. It will gain
much more when the present plans
for completing the club and for a ew
Law: building are carried out. With
these added- facilities, the induce
ments for graduate study here will be
great, providing we have a strong
graduate school in law.
It is the duty of the University, and
was the wish of President Burton,
that the University keep pace scholas-
tically with its program of expansion.
Buildings may be built in a few
months, it takes many years to build
scholastically. Now is the time to
start.

A review, by Lydia Kahn.
Few real high-brows could bring
themselves to enjoy yesterday after-
noon's concert. But we poor plebians
were the ones who received and ap-
preciated the little seed pearls tossed
to uts.
The dainty program, whose main
feature was a naive juvenile perform-
ance, opened with a cool and frag-
rant work, Beethoven's "T he,
Heavens Proclaim." The High School
chorus performed creditably with neat
cresendos and diminuendes. The sec-
ond number, Kucken's "Good Night,
Farwell," was accompanied and well
done.
Miss Loretta Deghan has a voice of
lyric beauty most suitable for the in-
terpretation of the broad-flowing,
simple melodies which characterize.
the late seventeenth a n d e a r ly
eighteenth century Italian composers,
and she showed wisdom in her choice
of songs.
Gounod's "Lovely Appear" from "The
Redemption" reminded us in the vag-
uest possible fashion of "'The B Minor
Mass"-it was the diminuative secular
offering of the ,jldren compared to
the grander, more eloquent one of the -
Choral Union.
But one of the quaintest numbers
was Miss Deghan's "Rain Song" by
Hahn sung to the children--
"It isn't raining rain to me,
Where ev'ry buccaneering bee
A health unto the happy.
A fig for him who frets!
It isn't raining rain to me,
It's raining violets."
Another impressive work was La
Forge's "Supplication."
It was rather a pity that the best
number was the last because those
poor people who left early, even if
they deserved it, missed a quaint, de-
lightful performance. Kelly's suite,
"Alice and Wonderland," is a de-
hiciously youthful work. He has
created a melodic and harmonic
phrase that the children delight to]

During the past few months, a re-
vival of the continual controversy be-
tween the fundamentalists and mod-
ernists in the Presbyterian church
threatened to cause no little trouble
in the election of a new moderator of
the general assembly. Thursday af-
ternoon the ecclesiastical battle came'
to a close with the election as mod-
erator .of , reiarles R. Erdman,
Princeton university professor, who
pledged to restgre harmony, in - the
church by "peaceful Methods."
While it is doubtful if Professor
Erdman realizes what a huge task he
has undertaken when lie promises tol

cease as long as there are two or

chosen the right method to attempt
this reunion of his church.
