RADIO POLICE
Slander by radio is to be penalized'
if the White bill passes Congress. An
amendment adopted by the House
provides that any person who utters
libel or slander over radio may be..
prosecuted either in the state in which
the speech was broadcast or in any'
state in which it was heard..
An instance of the lack of control
of radio in effect at the present time
occurred recently when. WB.BM, a
Chicago station, in a program broad-
cast from a cabaret, announced that
"State's Attorney Crowe is with us
tonight enjoying the night life." But
Mr. Orowe was at home listening in
on the program. In an attempt to
bring action against the station, Mr.
Crowe sought libel laws on the books
that would apply to radio, but was
unsuccessful.
The new law would subject radioI
to the same control that has govern-
ed newspapares in regard to their
utterances. The statutes are catching
up with the rapid advance of radio,
which has amassed the largest audi-
ence in the history of the world, and
yet remained without any legal check
on erroneous statements. Although
the privilege has probably been little
abused, society cannot afford to per-
mit such a great channel of informa-
tion to exist -without the restriction
of libel and slander laws.'
King George of England, looking at
a futuristic painting, asked, "Is :it a
dog or a fish'I" That puts a good
many people on a par with royalty.
Chicago is startingvocational train-j
ing for its citizens early in life. Four
grammar school boys have been ar-
rested for safe-breaking.

51' ROLLS
Well, we got our shoes for eighty
five cents. The maze of financial
activity through which we went to
do it, however, leaves us shaky and
, uncertain as to just how much the 1
shoesdid cost us. Everybodys says,
however, that since we accomplished
all the transactions successfully we l
got them for eighty five cents..
The shoes themselves are all right.
We have been wearing them for two
days now, and except that new shoes
give one away around here anyhow
now, they are as good as any shoes
we ever paid eight fifty for.
For a week now we have been try-
ing to figure out how this company
gets away with it. Just how much
they get for each pair of shoes, is im-1
possible to figure out. They must
have some higher mathematics spe-
cialist working it all out for them.
But we know that we, for instance,
and many others get the shoes for
eighty five cents, and that they cost
the company eight fifty. Someone
must loose some money somewhere'
and we are glad we were not that
Guy.
For all that, we may be the goat.
We are still so far behind the actual
events of our manipulations in
thought, that all we know is we have{
the shoes, and we might have' paid
out enough to start a shoe factory
somewhere in between.

"Conditions in England are get-l
ting distinctly better. Unemploy-
ment is decreasing and trade is
showing improvement. The Eng-
- "ish have a habit peculiar to}
themselves which they callI
'grousing.' They seem to take anI
actual. pleasure in painting theI
dark side in their conversationj
with each other. They are al-{
ways at it. But they draw the
line when anyone else joins in. It
is a family privilege and persons
of other countries are not allowed
to contribute. It is a national
idiosyncrasy and we have to make
allowance for it."-Alanson B.
Houghton, ambassador to the
Court of St. James.
TRULY A GREAT MAN
Rounding out a half century of
active teaching, Prof. Thomas C.
Trueblood, . head of the public speak-
ing department, has resigned his po-
sition, effective at the end of the Sum-
mer session. To generations of
,Michigan students, Professor True-
blood is known chiefly for the win-
ning debate teams he has coached,
for the honor orators he has trained,
and for the successful golf teams he
has produced as Varsity coach. To
them, also, he is known as a leader
e young men, a sort of Sir Gallahad,
beckoning ever onward to new and
nobler effort.
Professor Trueblood, though he
leaves the University to retire from
aetive teaching, leaves behind the
permnanent impress of his personality.
His days in the classroom are over,
but his influence will live on. In the
hearts and minds of the succeeding
student generations who have come
under his guidance, he has builded
an enduring monument, he has given
to them inspiration to carry them to
a fuller and richer life.
The Northern Oratorical league, the
Central Debating league, the Midwest
Debating league, and Delta Sigma
Rho, national honorary debating so-
ciety, are the result of his interest in
intercollegiate forensic activities.
With a colleague, he founded the
School of Oratory in Kansas City a
half century ago, becoming thereafter

CAMPUS OPINION
Anonymous communications will be
disregarded. The names of communi-
cants will, however, be regarded a
f confidential upon request.
THIS IS THE LAST-0F. THESE!
To the Editor:
It was with some amusement that
I read that enlightening, if somewhat
exasperating communication in your
column Wednesday entitled, "A Lack
I of Logic," submitted by a certain
IF.S. O.+
If F. S. O. will remember, Mr. Dar-
row admitted that his history might
not be all that ii shoiild as to some
of the comparatively uninimortant de-
tails. It mattes little, as far as I
can see, whether eia reqtiested
SAustriaor whether the Allies re-
quested Germany to carry the dispute
in question to The Hague Tribunal.
The important thing is that arbitra-
tion was plead for and was refused!
As to the omission of the "four :best
arguments available to a critic of the
League of Nations," perhaps F. S. O.
"underestimates" Mr. Darrow's ap-
preciation "of the average intelligence
of a college audience." As I recall it,
the little trouble in Morocco was be-
tween France and her territories,
colonial possessions, or, territories
generally conceded to be under her
management. If this be true. I'm
sure not even the most violent critic
of the League would demand that the
League prevent such trouble between
the components of a nation's own con-
situents.
I must remind F. S. 0. that Mr. Dar-
row said, "I don't object to confer-
ences." He also said that he didn't
( object to co-operating to bring about
peace, but lie did say that he objegted
to the League of Nations as a method
of co-operation. F. S. O. talks as
though "the organization of 55 states"
is the only means' we have, or ever
had, or ever will have for co-operat.
Iing for perpetual peace.
F. S. O. talks of disinterested sug-
gestions from the . S. to lessen the
danger of war. To think that we
1 should be disinterested in such a
.question! Further, can anyone con-
ceive of "disinterested suggestions"
from a creditor who has something
like a few billion dollars due him?
And will not the League and "talk"''
reduce the likelihood of increased
armament, in spite of that "awful"
Mussolini?
Mr. Darrow did make the statement
that only the willingness of the great
powers to combine forces against any
nation, or nations attempting war,
would preserve peace. And he . did
make the statement the next moment
that he would not mind entering the
League if it were only a debating
club-but that he did mind if ,rce
was to be used to enforce its decrees-
While Darrow said he believel that
force was the only way to havepace,;
he said he was not in favor of it, be-
cause it would necessarily place too
much restriction on our liberty. hel
League of Nations is not a debating
club, quite obviously, so, is there any

Ann Arbor, U. S. A., The Earth;
(Special to Rolls)-Unique in its con-
tribution to journalism of centuries
ago, the "Michigan Chimes" was dis-
covered here today by Rolls' Own Ex-
pedition exploring in the ruins of the
ancient architectural marvel, the Eco-
nomics building of the University of
Michigan.
The magazine, as it was once call-
ed, was found in a waste-paper bas-
ket in one of the palatial offices. It
is believed from the shape and con-
tents of the publication that it was
folded inside the "Gargoyle," another
humor magazine, and thus delivered
free to subscribers of the Gargoyle.
The origin of the name "Chimes"
probably was the hollow-sounding
clamor that.. was rung from bells in
those days. The issue discovered,
that of Jan. 24, 2013, which immedi-
ately followed Christmas ,vacation,
contained 4 pages.
The front page was devoted to an
article describing the Mimes Michigan
Union Opera trip, which visited 60
cities for either a matinee or evening
performance. Airplanes carried the
cast of 300 of the globe-circling trip,
which included shows at New York,
London, Paris, Berlin, Madrid, Dub-
lin, Rome, Trotskybu'rg, New New
! York, (Italy), Bombay, Hong Kong,
Tokio, Iceton-on-the-Artic, Hudson
Bay, Cape Town, Rio de Janiero, and
Ypsilanti.
A very funny column in the issue
was the "Pertinent Events in Retro-
spect" column. Translated from the
Latin, this phrase runs like this:
"Saucy Happenings in a Humorous
Vein." Evidently the department was
an imitation of Toasted Rolls, which
appeared in 'the Daily as discovered
yesterday..
One especially enjoyable column was
the Book Review one, in which were
burlesques on book reviews. The only
column that was not humorous was
the Michiganensia department, which
contained extracts from other campus
publications.,

Tomorrow we shall run- a large an-
nouncement concerning the Girls'

TONIGHT: The Play Production
classes present Martin Flavin's
"Children of the Moon" inUniversity
hall at 8 o'clock. I.I
TONIGHT: The Junior Girls' ply,
"Becky. Behave," in the Whitney
theatre at 8:15 o'clock.
"CHILDREN OF THE MOON" ,
A review, by William Lucas.
The Play Production Class has
perpetrated a foul trick on the author
of "Children of the Moon." Martin
Falvin has written a drama of unusual
power and beauty; even the stum-
bling, halting, and altogether ineffec-
tive production could not entirely
hide that. Of course it is evident that
the cast has done its best but that is
hardly a sufficient excuse for man-
gling such a play as "Child'ren of the
Moon." Considering its splendid,
sympathetic performance on the pro-
fessional stage in New York and Chi-
cago the efforts of the Play Produc-
tion Class are little short of sacrilege.
Of course we do not mean to hold
the production up to professional
standards. But happily the dramatic
activitiesjluring the last two months
have established a decided standard.
It has been proved once and for all, I
think, that a campus production need
not be sunk to the level- of a High
School's Senior play.
The bewildered cast apparently under
the delusion that the production was
little more than a glorified class room
exercise floundered through the per-
formance with as little purpose as is
possible to imagine. Certain of the
more intense scenes approached a
spirt of high burlesque all the more
ridiculous for the melo-dramatic pos-
tures of the characters draped about
the stage in the most approved public
speakingdepartment method.
The cast undoubtedly deservesa
good deal of credit-hopelessly lost
Iduring most of the performance-
there was no sign of weakening. The
performance maintained the same
staginess, the same pathetic earnest-
ness to the end.
Of course on reflection one realizes
that God simply did not intend some
people as actors which should make
I for a more charitable feeling. It is
in this spirit that we. refrain from a
consideration of indiidual perform-
ance.
* * *
"BECKY BEHAVE"
' A reviw, b Calvin Patterson. j
Another production in which the
parts are all played by persons of one
sex, and yet it is so excellently pre-
sented that one hardly has the usual
unsatisfied feeling which comes. from
the realization that the boys are not
really boys or the girls not girls. In
that respect it differs from the Opera.
Angeline Wilson, playing the part
of Bill, was the outstanding male
character. All her actions were most
strikingly masculine; every motion,
every expiession, every little manner-
ism was most fitting for the part which
she was playing. She was the typi-
cal young "bachelo."
Too much credit cannot be given to
Emily Oppenheim, playing the part of
Chloe. Anyone who has lived in the
South and knows the character of -the
"darkies" of that part of the country
appreciates that she gave an excellent
negro portrayal.
Of equal ability were Marian Le-
land, in the part of Mary, and Ruth
McCann as Millicent. The former is
delightful in her portrayal of the
maiden who is rather unexperienced
and yet who has a heart full of love.
She takes advantage of every oppor-
tunity to fulfill her character and to
win the audience with her grace and
charm. The latter was a girl who

received no attention and who was
exercising her abilities to appear so-
phisticated. Her exaggerated actions
were excellent and they were not feltj
to be unnecessary.
The other characters were but fair.'
For one reason or another, they were
not as successful as they might have
been. Some over-acted, others did not
take advantage of their opportunities,I
and still others did not fit or under-
stand their parts. Minerva Miller, as
Becky, did not act to her best ability
except towards the latter part of the!
first act. She appeared to be tired
at all other times and did not put her-
self into the pairt. Far from grace-
ful, her attraction is i the sweet sim-
plidity with which sh , gives her lines
and the unassumed expressions which
are upon her face.
Betty' Anderson, flling the role.f
Mr Pip, the "bookworm," did her best
work in the "Ladies of Literature"
number. But here she did not take
advantage of the interyals between the
appearance of- the ladies; it seemed
as if she did not know what to do with
herself between eitrances.
The best of the dances was that
done by "The Newsies." Real boys
