Night E ditor-LEONARD C. HALL
"Our people have had all the war,
all the taxation, and all the military
service that they want. And with
these and other words, equally as
pointed, the man who had the cour-
age to veto the soldiers' bonus told
the thousands of ex-soldiers assem-
bled at the American Legion conven-
tion that national solidification and
the gradual improvement of our
present armed forces are more im-
portant, and will accomplish , more.
than further military expansion.
"Peace and security are more like-
ly to result from mutual agreements
for a limitation of armaments than
by any attempt at competition in
squadrons and battalions." And fur-
ther "-we shall only be entering a
period of preparation for another con-
flict unless we can demobilize te
racial antagonisms, fears, hatreds,
and suspicions, and create an attitude
of toleration in the public mind of
the peoples of the earth. If our couu-
try is to have any position of leader-
ship, I trust it may be in that direc-
tion, and I believe that the place
where it should begin is at home"
President Coolidge has given the
couitry his views as to the best, per-
haps the only, way to achieve world
peace. He has expressed his disbelief

in excessive armaments, he has made
known his dissatisfaction with the
present feeling of international un-
rest that is apparently permeating
the country,-and he has branded
these things as obstacles in the patli
of prosperity and peace.
And who shall say that he is not
Impressive bodies the world over,
made up of the most respected of
diplomats and political observers, aro
agreed that military preparedness, to
the extent of the continual mainten-
ance of overwhelming armed forces,
cannot bring about the peaceful set-
tlement of international disputes.
"Might" has been discarded as a pos-
sible remedy,-the world now looks
to "right" to accomplish what

has given the nation his viewpoint,.
and, In the light of what he has ac-
complished heretofore, his sugges-
tions deserve the deepest considera-

day afternoon; another will be held
this afternoon; more are scheduled
for every Wednesday and Thursday
for the next three weeis. The campus
politicians have e'nough material il
sight to insure a very interesting and,
perhaps, profitable fall.
Of all student activities, that of en-
gineering political machines is the
most frowned upon by those who look
to outside activities for some definite
good. Only too often have so-called
"machines" been organized to pro-
mote the candidacy of some man who
has not proven to be the best selec-
tion that the organization in question
could have made. Such candidates,
when engineered into office, promptly
lose interest after the competition of
the election is over and the organiza-
tion is left to suffer the leadership of
inefficient officers. That is the harm
wrought by the political machine,
which often is large enough to elect
men against the best judgment of
those most concerned.
It is not possible, nor would it, per-
haps, be beneficial, to abolish politics
on the campus of this University. Po-
litical activities can be curtailed, as
is the case in athletic organization,
publications, and the Student Chris-
tian association, but they can no more
be wiped out than national politics
could be wiped out of the government
of the United States.. They are able,
if handled correctly, to offer a valu-
able training in politics to those stu-
dents who intend, in after years, to
take an active part in governmental
work, either in active politics or civil
Whether student politics, as now
practiced on this campus, are ac-
complishing anything of real benefit,
depends entirely on the men engaged
in them and, more indirectly, upon
the fraternities who give these men
their backing-the nucleus of every
so-called "machine." The lack of in-
terest in campus elections on the pa.
of many students enables these or-
ganizations, with their few organized
votes, to become deciding factors,--a
situation, exactly duplicating on a
small scale, the present political sit-
uation in the United States. The men
who take an interest in these elec-
tions and actively take part in them
should realize the responsibility that
is their's-a good man, experience
in the work he is seeking to direct,
interested in the position he is try-
ing to obtain, in brief, a man who, if
elected will fill his position in the way
that it should be filled, deserves the
backing of any organization he can
get. Abuse of this duty by political
leaders has been the cause of dis-
agreeable experiences in the past.
For those who condemn such poli
tical activity and wish to abolish it,
only one course of procedure is open.
If all the students on this campus
took sufficient interest in politics to
attend elections and to vote intelli-
gently, the small "machine" minority
would be so insignificant that its ef--
fect would be negligible, and the
practice of organizing such cam-
paigns would die out. That is the
only remedy; until such a radical
change in the attitude of the campus
is made, the efforts of those wishing
to see the most experienced and effi-
cient men at the head of Michigan or-
ganizations should direct their ener-
gies to seeing that these men receive
the support of the "machines" regard-
less of fraternal or other affiliations.

News, it appears, is very scarce
these days. The various correspon-
dents for outside newspapers, as well
as The Daily, are unanimous in de-
claring that thus far this is the dul-
lest season in years. Any one con-
mitting a murder or any sensational
act of similar nature will win the
undying gratitude of these diligent

We have, at this late date, just read
Mr. Angell's letter on football in the
not too recent issue of the Alumnus.
His logic is above our heads, we must
admit. For instance, we fail to see
how the enlargement of a stadium
would mae the week-end trips longer,
or why football would be more dis-
cussed or taken more seriously if 75,-
000 people saw the game, instead of
It does not seem to us over con-
sistent to maintain that the interest
in any particular contest of this sort
is commensurate with the number of
people who witness it. For instance,
at Illinois, one man has done more to
arouse excitement along these lines
than the additional thousands who
witness his feats.

Benard McFlaten, the eminent New
York poseur, is to meet Stanlias Na-
bisco in an eight round bare torso
contest this evening on the local A.
C. floor for the championship of the
world, including the Scandinavian.
Mr. McFlatten, while not heretofore
recognized as one of the more prom-
ising contenders for the title, has
competed at several bare torso ex--
hibits of note both at home and
abroad, and has gained a small but
select coterie of royal followers.
Mr. Nabisco, the present holder of
the belt, is a thoroughly experienced
bare torso contender,. having parti-
cipated in 243657568 contests during
the last 87 years, including his meet-
ing with Yak Qualitchjudnzjixski, the
tremendous Russian artist, in 1867. In
addition to this, Mr. Nabisco has giv-
en benefit exhibitions for several New
York magazines. It has been stated
on good authority that Mr. Nabisco
trains -exclusively on Honey and Al-
mond cream.
Following the bare torso bout, Mr.
McFlatten's youngest son, Raphael,
will lift 500 pound weights for the
rest of the evening.
Mi'. McFlatten also desires to an-
nounce that he is being sponsored in
the contest by Lionus Strongirt and
Earl Leidermanch.

A review, by W. M. Lewis, Jr.
It was rather disappointing to wit-
ness a decidedd (ecline of jazz from
the high plane to which Paul White-
man has elevated it, simply to satisfy
the "low brow" element in the type
of audience which attends his con-
certs. The clownish antics on the
part of some members of the orches-
tra would, without a doubt, find favor
with an audience in a vaudeville the-
atre, but they are quite out of place
on the concert stage.
Mississippi, Ferdie Grofe's "tone
journey," opened the program and is
not excelled in modern scoring. Levee
folk tunes were a sound basis for
elaborate orchestral structure. T ej
best of the classical numbers, in con-
trast, adapted to dance rhythm was
Kreisler's "Caprice Viennois which
made a delightfully fascinating waltz,
while "Spain" with its banjo ac-
companiment and piano obligato was
a superb encore.
John Alden Carpenter has been far
morezsuccessful with tl ,Little EU
of Jazz" than hie was with the jaz
ballet "Krazy Kat."
A novel ,way of presenting the
members of the orchestra was en
ployed. Each musician was the celi
ter of a small ray of light on the
darkened stage and displayed his ci-
ent in a short number. Chester ha z
let, the saxophone virtuoso from the
Pacific coast, quite capably filled the
berth made vacant by Ross Gorman.
No Whiteman program would be
complete without the "Rhapsody in
Blue" and Pingatore's banjo solo,
"Linger Awhile." The interpretation
of the "Rhapsody," however, was
somewhat ragged. Having included
this number on every Whiteman pro
gram, it is quite evident its playing
becomes more or less mechanicai.l
Such a marvelous work deserve!
more conscientious execution than it
was given. There is no need to hurry
through it, especially since some of
the most beautiful passages have
been cut to shorten its presentation
Harry Uerrella, the soloist, won sev-
eral reserved encores, the best being
"Nola." In all, this program certain-
ly was not up to what one would ex-
pect from that incomparable maestro
of modern music, 111r. Paul Whiteman
