of a land by airplane.
History tells of expeditions journey-
ing by foot into unknown regions, and
of colonizing done by many forms of
transportation, but a new page will
be written when airp~lanes carry
pioneers into the North to build gas
stations 01n the airplane trail.
It is believed that the future route,
of airplane travel between America
and Europe will be over the top of
the world, and therefore the import-
ance of these expeditions cannot be
over-stressed. Five countries have
representatives in the race for this
military and comnmercial post: the
(United States, France Norway, Italy,
and Russia.
In .addition, the United States has
three expeditions seeking scientific
data: one investigating Norse ruins in
Labrador and Greenland; another
trawling Greenland waters for marine
life, and collecting data ashore; and.
that of Prof. William H. Hobbs, to ex-1
plore Greenland, and to experiment
1with the chemnical, "ice-thermite," in
destroying icebergs at their source
and at sea.
The "Age of Discovery" will never
come to an end; when one part of the
world has become thoroughly known,
another crop of "explorers always!
finds other regions to investigate.
lcetown-on-the-Arctic may be the
transfer point of the future.
The national pie . campaign, en-
couraging the use of this desert for
three meals a day, is seen as an aid
to Michigan fruit growers. How about
the doctors throughout the entire
country?

pointed a finger right between your
eyes and shouted at the very top of
his lungs: "YOU!" This is what hap-
pened to tiny little Titina Thiddle,
the piquant, petite premiere danseuse
of the "Dora Be Decent" company the
other night. The man was a big surly
looking foreigner, with meance in his
voice. The street was dark and Ti-
tina was all alone. It was one o'clock

What did the poor girl do? What
could she do? Well, she kept right on
walking. You see she had a cold and
had cotton in her ears, and her hat
brim completely hid the gesture, she
htad one of those trick hats which
hide all vision. So she didn't know
that the man was there at all. He
was so chagrined at his loss of men-
ace that he shambled away in the
opposite direction, a broken man.
How do we know this all happened,
you ask? Well, we don't, except that
Miss Thiddle told us about it after-;
ward. You understandt she didn't see,
or hear anything, but when she reach
ed home that night she suddenly de-
alized what had happened. She had
turned and looked over her shoulder
and saw the man shambling away, as
fast as he could shamble.

One of the rules of this office is that#
any mention or use of the word "Tam-
b~ourine," for instance,, constitutes one
piece of publicity for that production.
For instance, if we should write
"Tambourine was a punk show, we
saw it last night" and Insert it either
before, during or after the presenta-
tion of the play, we would be hand-
ing out free publicity.
It is because of this that we write
this. Below follows a contribution

A LETTER TO CAMPUS OPINON
Dear Editor:
Something must be done. The
campus, dramatic organizations are
gradually undermining one of the
world's most sacred institutions. Last
fall Mimnes presented "Engaged," the
same "Engaged" that was recently
revived. That was all right.
But then'Masques has to cone out
with that Williams Pulitzer Prize
Play. (Incidentally, Masques are miss-
ing the opportunity of a lifetime in
not advertising "Why Marry" as a
"startling reply to 'Engaged.' ") To
make matters worse, Jessie Bonstelle
'is coming out with the other Wil-
liams-home-life play, "Why Not,"
Iwhich I gather, from a reading of the
Idrama in Burns Mantle's. splendid
year-book (not an advertisement), is
about two married couples, each
jmember of which decides that he or
she is in love with the her or him of
the other couple, whereupon they all
I(divorce and get married again.
And "You Never Can Tell" is also
about (omestic troubles, woman's

SN S 'TRUM INT' SO , TORTURE
P ew committees appointed for in-
vestigational purposes ever make anyj
report that lends material benefit to
an organization, but with the an-
nouncenient yest erdlay that President
Clarence Cook Little had named cer-
tain students amid faculty mlembers to
cooperate in considering the present
examination, grading, and honor sys-
temns, it was indicated that for once
the traditional rule of "committee for
committee's sake" has been violated.
With aln opportunity to make dlefi-
nite recommendations which will bet-
ter thme existinmg systems, the committee
has a real duty to perform. It is cer-
tain that changes should he made,I
that more advanced and np)-to-date.
methods will eventually be adopted,
but it remains to be seen 'whether our
educational system is human enoughI
and our students of sufficient generals
mentality and culture to undergo suc-'
(oe 1,4ully a change from the antiquat-1'
ed inellods.of grading and conductinga
examinations.
It is questionable whether written!
examinations, as they are given now,
really disclose the student's worth.
President Little, speaking of the writ- ;
ton'i examination in his inaugural ad-
dress, called it "another refined ill-
utrunment of tortumre." "A written ex-1
almni ion," he went on to say, "is!
usually the amount of informationl
ANhich can, undler unnatural conditions t
c'autsedI by nervousmness, be unloadled
n legibile form by the student within t
a limnite'd periodi of time." In thisI
saatement, President Little showedI
his di,'trust of the present system'sf
value. S
Tfhe President also gave his opinion I

7y located, whose chief' recomnenda-c
tlion is familiarity with the -process
(f grading on a mathematical scalei
the written agony of tihe students1
whom they do not know."1

WITHOUTT JAPAN'S CON!SE*NT
To the Editor:
The latest (lish of moral enlight- l,
ienment doled out to the embryo ec-'
cliastics of the Michigan School of
Religion comnes in the form of a lec-
ture by one Dr. Galen Fisher, notedl
Orientalist. And what a succulent
Kish it was. Here are the high lights
of the lecture as reported by The
IDaily of March 12:
"Uncle Sam is marked down in'
Japan's books as a boor," said Dr.j
Galen Fisher of New York City, noted1
Orientalist.. "The recent Immigration I
Act was passedl without consulting
Japan, thus breaking the gentlemen's
agreement initiated ill 1907-08 lby
President Roosevelt'. Only war could
justify such a treatment of another
nation."1
Thus does another self-appointed
harmonizer surreptitiously approach
the unsuspecting campus and give
Svent to his platitudinous ,yodel. Thea
pros and cons of our immigration~
problem have been tile comnmonl
Sknowledge of intelligent p~eople for aI
number of years. Only the unenlight-
ened could fail to percieve that this
problem, settled by Congress with ad-t
imirable dispatch ill 1924, presented;
aspects that were quite incomiprehen-1
fsible to tile near-sighted Roosevelt.
The flare of Japan's ambassador, conm-

gesture, now and again , with her

skirts stop above the knee---and a
style about her that makes time gentle-
men squirm.
GFurther (down the same line is a
peroxide blonde who smiles. ThisI
year they are largely cutting out tihe
idea of girls as men, with forms that
somehow cannot fit tuxedos, anti ex-j
ploiting them plainly for their own
appeal-girls as ladies of the ensem-
ble. . . . Wthat should a boy do when
a' peroxide blonde smiles so lushly?
I may be mistaken, but I keep on
feeling that somehow they have the
right idea over there, and that some-I

theirs look every stitch of their paper-
