sue. Other newspapers in the United
States may welcome their new con-
temporary, for it covers for the pub-
lic a field that has long been ne-
At the University of Illinois there
is a rule which prohibits students
from smoking on the campus or in
that portion of the city which im-
mediately adjoins the campus. That
the rule really means something and
was not merely issued to satisfy
rabid reformers is evidenced by the
fact that twenty students and one in-
structor were arrested a few days ago
by the university police for violation
of the rule. The restricted area in-
cludes Green street, the State street
of Urbana, on which are located a
great many of the fraternity houses.
If a student wishes to smoke be-
tween classes he must walk outside
of the campus confines which would
be so far from his classroom that
he would be unable to get back before
the class is half over. Green street,
being included, he cannot sit on his
front porch and enjoy a smoke in the
evening; nor should he smoke in his
'room. In the hurry to make an eight
o'clock, he cannot even have that last
quieting cigarette between breakfast
and classroom.
Such harsh and narrow ruling have
never been known on any other large
university campus, although they are
common enough with very small or
denominational colleges where the
founder or body of founders has in-
flicted some narrow reflection of his
own ego on the succeeding genera-
tions of students.. Some persons car-
ry their private moralities so far that
they become obsessions, if not manias,
with them, and they are sometimes
perpetuated in newly founded col-
leges. But such things cannot be
said about a state university like
Illinois which does not have to follow
the narrow dictates of a founder. It
f would seem that when students reach
the age when parents allow them to
attend college that they should be
able to govern their lives as they see
fit, without the bothersome interfer-
ence of super-ethical deans.
It is not uncommon for colleges to
have restrictive rulings-they are al-
most a necessity. Here, at Michigan,
the strictest rule is aimed at prohibi-
tion, but that is a national law; at
Wisconsin, the student newspaper
published a tobacco advertisement
contrary to an antiquated rule, and
the W. C. T. U. protested, although the
university authorities said nothing;
at Northwestern, a varsity athlete was
declared ineligible, not because he
married, but because lie eloped to do
so, which was contrary to a university
rule; but none of these compare with
the distastefulness of the Illinois rul-
ing, for they do not deprive anyone
of a great amount of personal libert.
It seems strange to us at Michigan,
with so much freedom and liberty,
that students, supposedly educated
persons, should be asked to tolerate
such restrictions on their personal
rights as American citizens.

A review, by Robert Henderson.
"The Student Prince" is a show, a
show-off. It is Shubert from begin-
ning to end, costumes, hokum, razzle-
dazzle, lush music, and it is corking
entertainment--strange synonyms.
After all, sentiment is the trick that
makes the world go round. The
Prince who loves his Cinderella sla-
vey, the lovely Princess who must
finally become his queen, the nobility
of soft palaver and beer, old Heidel-
berg and drinking songs. all have the
same grand operatic appeal. We can
laugh at the comedian whose tech-
nique shames the slapstick of the
"Beef Trust Beauties," we can cry at
Prince Karl's tinsel sorrows, we wor-
ship the whole line of its heart ap-
p eal.
The great virtue of "The Student
Prince" over its heavy predecessors
is the odl intelligence shown in the
underlying plot. Cinderella does not,
perversely as fits the tradition, gain
her Prince Charming, and the glass
slipper strangely fits a dainter foot.
Better yet, the company now at the
Whitney theatre is far superior to the
troupe that fared so fatuously through
the holidays in Detroit. There is
someone in the men's chorus with a
beautiful voice that invariably stirred
the house; even Karl Franz does not
sicken one as did the diva in Detroit;
and Kathie is really extraordinarily
played by a Miss Howe. Her perform-
ance in what could so easily become
a hopeless part was always convinc-
ing, so fresh and grateful.
A show, a show-off, the Jews in the
chorus, the occasional acting that
might make Mansfield wiggle in his
hallowed grave; the gorgeous cost-~
umes, the songs, the entire enthusias-
tic dash make "The Student Prince."
The houses are always packed, the
audiences eat it up; it is the theatre
theatric, the climactic, grand man-
ner burst of the million-dollar revue.

When I heard this piano last sum-
mer at the estate of John Hays H1am-
mond, Jr., just outside of Gloucester,j
Massachusetts, the full sustained
tones, the almost organ-wise depth
and grandeur appeared revolutionary.
Saturday evening it seemed little
more than a piano of certain reson-
a nce.
For the rest of the recital--the odd,
distended piano shoved into a corner
-the entire attention was centered1
on the conductor and his gestures.
The compositions, save the Bach Pas-
sacaglia after the intermission, were
so bluntly modern as to satisfy even
the youngest generation with their
faith in all music after Wagner.

"L'Oiseau de Feu" fairly swept the
audience away with their whirlwind
of pagan color: strong and heady as
sweet wine.
"The greatest orchestra in the
world" they call it: such are the

an evening of noble line and sincerity
such as Stokowski, with all his glory,

"The United States, through
long experience, has come to the
conclusion that offensive or de-
fensive alliances, political or mil-
itary, are not in harmony with
the principles of our Government,
or in the interests of our people.
That principle has become the
cornerstone of our foreign policy.j
This does not mean isolation or
refusal to co-operate as we have
always done with other nations in
all these non-political activities
for the advancement of science,
education, commerce and other
activities so important to modern
civilization."-Secretary Kellogg.
On March 4, a new daily newspaper,
The United States Daily, will make'
its appearance at Washington, fill-'
ing a need that has long been appar-
ent in thLe journalistic world. The
new paper will carry only govern-
mental news, but will cover it com-
plktely, to an extent that no general
.ewspaper can approach, and very
few of which even attempt. And it
will be unbiased, the organ of no po-
litical party, even the editorial page
being omitted.
With the tremendous growth of the
government's activities, the need of a
daily newspaper accurately reporting i
them has become obvious. General
newspapers make no effort to print de-
tailed government reports, yet there
is a large class of persons in Wash-
ington and elsewhere in the country,
who are vitally interested in exactlyI
Nvhat happens, and who are capable
of understanding the reports. Here-
tofore this large potential circulation
has been untouched; The United
States Daily should be a sound finan-
cial venture as well as a valuable
source of ingformation to the student
ofd government.
Several newspapers, The New York
Times, The Christian Science Monitor,
The Philadelphia Public Ledger, and,
others carry long accounts of import-
ant government happenings, but none
of them .attemrt to do a complete job,
and in the case of less important gov-
ernment business, they print nothing.I
No general newspaper could afford to'
give so much space to politics. It is
for this reason that an ably edited po-
litical daily will find a place for itself
in ip in alifi. 't o ld

A review, by Vincent Wall.
Beginning with two numbers by the
University Symphony orchestra under
the direction of Samuel Lockwood,
the faculty concert rapidly reached a
climax in the Chopin concerto that
marked the program as one of thel
E best given this year. In the first
place the symphony orchestra itself
was surprisingly good. The usual
meaningless preliminary squawks left
al impression of discord that was
quickly dispelled by the sweeping
opening chords of the "Overture to
the Ballet, Promcthcus," Op. 43 of
Beethovem, which was given in a man-
ner not unworthy of Ossip Gabrilo-
witch and the De roit Symphony it-'
And all this as a very Iitting pre-
hide for the wonderful artistry of
Mlaud Okkelburg in the piano solos of
the Chopin Concerto, E minor, Op. 11.
It was truly remarkable, the whole
performance: the delightful bell like
tones that Mrs. Okkelburg found
somewhere in the grand piano, the de-
lightful nuances of tone in her al-
most faultless interpretation, and
finally the lyric background of a well-
co-ordinated group of instruments.
:Therewas a certain arabesque clar-
)cter, a tilagree work that was per-
fectly brought out; in fact there was
scarcely a shade of meaning lost in
the whole concerto, and there is a
wealth of color to be found and
depths to be reached that are most
often only brushed over in a super-
ficial manner.
And in the concluding number there
was not as much of an anti-climax as
might be expected. There was a
dash and spontaneity in the delivery
of the four movements of Mendels-
sohn's Symphony No. 4, A major, Op.
90 ("Italian") that prevented the cus-
tonmary falling off after the suspense
occasioned by the Chopin concerto.
There was a power to the waves of
harmony from the violins and violas
coupled with a monotone of rhythm
from the brass section that lifted the
