40,000 TURNED AWAY
The Athletic association has an-
nounced that more than $100,000 had
been returned to prospective purchas-
ers of tickets for the Navy game-
and' yet the game is still two weeks
away, and the' fact that tickets were
not available has been known for
weeks.
Those who oppose a new stadium
have a powerful argument to face in
these figures. The students have

their seats-the return of this money
will not send any undergraduates
back to their studies, but it will de-
prive thousands of Michigan's loyal$
alumni and their friends from seeing
their team in action. Just how hard
such a blow is to the alumnus who
wants to see Michigan play cannot
be appreciated without reading the
letters they send to the Athletic as-
sociation, all begging for tickets and
demanding a new stadium, capable of
seating all of Michigan's sons and
daughters who still have the desire
to watch the school's team splay at
Ann Arbor.

can ways of thinking. Isn't it just
possible that our aloofness from these
foreign students thwarts a great deal
of mutual broadening?
They would not have been sent here
from their native lands unless they
had evidenced marked ability. Some
day most of them will be intellectual
leaders in their respective countri's.
They are eager both to learn what we
can teach them'and to impart to us
the thoughts of their countries. By
pursuance of only our own narrow
paths, we at once retard the develop-
ment of these vistors and deny our-
selves an opportunity to wide great-
ly our mental scopes and our sym-
pathies.
If it can be assumed that we came
here to acquire a liberal education, it
follows that we ignore a rare privi-
lege when we scorn this offered con-
tact with what is representative of
the intellectual wealth of the world.
Filler in the latest Chimes: "News-
paper Directory records show that
out of every hundred new periodicals
started in this country, fewer than
three continue more than two years"
-We trust that Chimes is not fooling
itself.
BUT WHEN HE SPEAKS---
Our language is beautiful when it is
properly spoken, but we are rapidly
developing it into a decidedly inelo-
quent lingo. If the college men and
women do not speak our language
tolerably well, what may we expect
from those Who do not have college
advantages?
The present day collegiate dialect
is nothing more than a combination of
profanity, hackneyed phrases, sport
writer's slang, and shop girl expres-
sions. It is not the "Americanism,"
but the cheap and degrading word or
expression that is the undesirable
element of our modern speech.
There can be no doubt as to which
man creates the best impression, the
one who speaks correctly, or the one
who speaks incorrectly? A good im-
pression is a big start on the road to
success. The language which we
speak in the class-room is entirely
different than that which we use in
ordinary conversation. If we were
more careful with our common speech
we would find it much easier to talk
fluently in the class-roon. As condi-
tions now exist, we often let the
wrong word slip, thereby amusing the
class, embarrassing ourselves, and
displeasing the instructor.
Correct discourse is a great help
in college and an even greater aid to
success in the everyday world. The
more we use it the easier it is to use,
and it can become a convenient and
practical habit.
CAMPUS OPINION
Anonymous communriiations will be

:ants will, however, be regarded as

ACADEMIC WEAKNESS?
To the Editor:
A geat laudable desire on the part
of our faculty to spend much of their
time in personal research work, or
in the case of some, incapibility or
laziness plain and simple, has result-
ed in certain deplorable defects in
the curriculum of some departments.
To-wit: (1) a continued repetition
of elementary material instead of of-
fering work of progressively greater
intellectual value; (2) courses, the
names of which indicate anything but

what is actually taught; and finally,
(3) curriculum outlining a ser e' of
courses of different name and numfber
but each including a great overlap
of material olrcred.
It would hardly be a politic movea
on tlhe part of the writer, a stuqcdnt,
to become too definite in this Comn-
plaint. Various reasons would natur-

Madison, Wis., Oct. 17.-(Special to.

Joseph Zilch, America's foremost
ace flew here from Ann Arbor this
morning to witness the swimming
meet and chess matches and caused
much discussion by stating in theI

the theatre of the rest of America has
never, so far as popular taste goes,
been in a worse state. Where a
Mansfield once held the provincial
stage, a Charleston hoofer now takes
a dozen bows. Where Sothern was
once brought before the curtain, a
trained duck now brings down the
thunders of applause. The theatrical
taste of America at the present time
is for 'Abie's Irish Rose,' which is the
worst of the popular plays that have
prospered most greatly in America;
which is twice as bad as 'Way Down'
East,' which is three times as bad as.
'Uncle Tom's Cabin,' which is five
times as bad as 'Ben Hur,' and which;
is ten times as bad as 'Charley' s
Aunt.'
Of "Abie," of course, there is no
possible reply; but as to the rest, the
answer lies witli Stuart Walker in,

"Wisconsin didn't even score," he
said when reporters asked his opinion
of the combat. "While Michigan
scored three touchdowns. Isn't that
proof enough?" The referee, the Um-

comment.

ton, with Robert McLaughlin in
Cleveland, with Oliver Morosco in
San Francisco, and vWith Mr. McGeeI
and Jessie Bonstelle in Detroit.
Through these repertory companies
whole masses are re-discovering an
interest in the theatre and making
that theatre a potent part of their
life They grow to know and appre-
ciate individual actors. They make,
possible the financial success of such
organizations, and the organizationsI
in turn soon enlarge their repertoires i
with plays of surprising artistry.
It is a game of catch-as-catch-can,
and almost in spite' of themselves you
find audiences accepting literature
that they would starve to the ware-
house as a road attraction. There is
the point that the two most beautiful
and modern auditoriums in Detroit
are the Bonstelle Playhouse and the
Majestic Theatre; the first much after
the fashion of the Guild Theatre in
New York, save possibly in better{
taste, and the other with its single
floor modelled in the manner of the
most advanced continental play-1
houses.
It is also especially pertinent that
the Majestic Players are opening
with Eugene O'Neil's "Anna Christie"
this evening and the Bonstelle com-
pany are presenting Kauffman and
Connelly's "The Beggar on Horse-
back" tomorrow night. "Anna Chris-
tie," of course, with the exception of
'"Desire Under the Elms," is the
author's greatest work, a powerful
analysis of two fancy women and a
deeply sympathetic portrait of a half-
mad sea captain.
The other work is even more inter-
esting. Adapted from Paul Apel's
"Hans Sonnenstoesser's Hohlenfahrt,"
it amounts to a devastating broad-
side against - the American credo.
Using all the tricks of radical ex-I
pressionism it bludgeons the Ameri-
can business man, his wife and his
goods thereof. Its story tells of a
struggling young composer, living in
a hall bedroom and eeking out an
existence by writing jazz instead of

these Wednesday night dances are of a
nice size. The music, as on Friday and
Saturday nights, is furnished by Jack
