It is a very human trait to yearn
with sighs of regret for the golden
days of yore, when men were men,
when the home was a home, when
politics were clean and fair-fought,
when college was a place to study, and
the flowing bowl was not life's goal.#
We generally have pictured to us the1
old home as the model *of domestic
felicity, and the family members as
kind fathers and brothers with angelic
mothers and sisters, moving in stately
grace across the cottage threshhold.
It would appear that the sun does not
shine so brightly as it did in the Mid-
Victorian days of marble top tables,
wax flowers, tinted photographs and
plush albums.'.
The scenes of our childhood and
youth take on a glamor and glow with
the passing of the years which is hard
to cast off. Yet, if we take an un-
predjudiced view of the olden and
golden days of our youth we will cer-
tainl find that human nature is about
the same. Ignorance is no longer
considered innocence and a virtue.
Politics are at least not worse than
they were in the days of the spoils
systems. Competent statesman have
lost none of their prestige. The oil
scandals of the present era have their
parallels in the financial scandals of
the "eighties" and "nineties.""
If we were to take a vote as to
whether we would return to those
supposedly golden days, the "nays"
would hav% an overwhelming majority.
Civilization has progressed. We can-
not go back, and no one wants to do
so. The halycon days never existed
save in the imaginations of those
whose memories have lost most of
the realities of their youth. It is all
unadulterated piffle. They might well
be called "the golden days that never

"I don't care that--(snapping
his fingers at the committee) for,
all your Fourth of July orators
about the love for America-the
way to show that love is to pay a
living wage to American judges.
Decadence and possible corrup-
tion face the Federal courts be-
cause of the low salaries paid to

of the law.
Mister William Mitchell, who filled
the newspapers during the closing
months of 1925 with his charges of
inefficiency and criminal negligence
in the United States air service, and
who, since his court-martial, has re-
signed from the service and become a
plain civilian, is seeing his efforts
bear fruit, despite his conviction by
his superior oecers on the charge of
hnsubordination. There are, at pres-
ent, six different plans for the re-
organization of the air service before
the military affairs committee of the
Ilouse-tall from different sources. It
vould seem that ex-Colonel Mitchell
hid found something radically wrong,
if so many remedies are necessary.
TIcluded in the list are the colonel's
0 2n plans, embodying the recommen-
dations of the Lampert aircraft inves-
tigation committee, a plan offered by
Uepresentative James, of Michigan,
based on the findings of the first Las-
siter board; the suggestion of Rep-
resentative Hill, which would create
a department of national defense; the
proposals of the administration, based
on te findings of the Morrow aircraft
board; the plan of Major General Pat-
rick, chief of the army air service;
and a bill by Representative Curry,
providing for a unified air service. Six
of them-and yet Mr. Mitchell was
courtmartialed for bringing the state

The far-reaching influence
University of Michigan in the
is felt from time to time
prominence of its graduates

of the
in the

homes or adopted homes are in thel
East. Recently, an association of
members of Delta Sigma Rho, national
honorary forensic society, was formed
in Tokyo, composed of eight persons
from colleges in the United States.
Other schools are represented, but
Michigan leads in numbers.
Three of the eight in the society
there are Michigan graduates who
were prominent in activities while
here. K. S. Inui represented the Uni-
versity in the Northern Oratorical
League contests while in school. He is
now editor of "International- Glean-
ings from Japan," a magazine on the
Orient. Miss Yone Moriya represent-
ed Michigan in the debate with Ohio
State in 1923. Both of these are from
Tokyo. The third Michigan member,
J. K. Dunn, was on the debating team
and was president of the Oratorical
association in 1923-24.
These persons gained something by
their contact with the other students
at the University, and are consequent-
ly better fitted for life in their own
lands. Is it not possible that the
American students can gain some-
thing from association with students
of other lands?
Of modern woman it can be said that
a "thing of beauty is a boy forever."j

And so we begin anew or dreary
task. And so anew comes over us the
sweet, sad, melancholy of life drear*
burdens. We are but beast of burden
who must each carry his load of thus
and so through the long days till
death relieves us then unburdened
by may aspire to higher and better
things. Then we may enjoy whatever
the afterlife as in store for us. Man
is but a molecule in the hands of the
gentle breezes of fate which seem to
him great and overpowering gales.-
And to what avail is all striving? An-
swer: To no avail. We are what we
are and we cannot be anything else.
Let us all, then, face our sad, drear*
span of existence with true Spartan
fortitude for (while all of us can't
be everything, none of us should be
nothing and some of us will then be
something. Alas, alack 'tis gloomy and I
glowery* this life of ours.
* * I
*That word "drear" is a little in-
vention of our own. Comes from
dreary plus poetic license. Newer dic-
tionaries please copy. Also the word
"glowery." This is a bit more off the
beaten path it means, er- well, glow-
Sery. The dictionaries may as well
incorporate that too.
As to the inner meaning and deep
significance of the above. It is merelY
a word-tone-picture (another inven-
tion, boy, no mere language can keep
us down today) a portrayal of our
mood as we compose this ribbon of
horizontal wit. There we go again!
What is horizontal wit? Answer:
Nothing. What we meant was hori-
zontal ribbon of mirth (that sounds
better, you can have a horizontal rib-
bon). Anyway to get back to what we
started to say when we so rudely in-
terupted ourselves, it is a crystaliza-
tion ofouremotional state when we
take pen in hand.
Now that we read it over, it strikes
us that' the similies or metaphors or
whatever they are are pretty jumbled
and that, in themselves, they don't
mean over much. Well, that is all al-
lowable in this word-tone-poem. Emo-
tions don't mean anything either--
they're all like the futuristic art-(see
J-lop) they don't mean anything but
they are nevertheless (or maybe it's
therefore) perfectly all right. So now
the whole thing is perfectly clear, and
if it isn't it isn't our fault.
Note: We just happened to look in
the dictionary and we found the word
"dread" there. They seem to have an-
ticipated us. But not the word "Glow-
cry." One at a time is enough.

. Hamilton Mipp, noted this and
that about the Michigan campus, has
returned to Ann Arbor after a two-
weeks vacation during which the crew
candidates struggled with exams. Mr.
Mipp spent his time at the Brooklyn
Navy Yard where he trained by row-
ing around some of the dismantled
battleships which are kept there. Al-
though the decks were covered with
snow and were rather slippery, "Men-
tor" Mipp had no trouble in making
them move about New York harbor,
and Lond Island sound at will.
"Now that I am back here to stay."
said iMipp when interviewed last night,
"I intend to whip the crew into fight-
ing trim right off the bat. By the first
of April I want to have the best crew
in the country."
"Who doesn't?" we asked him.
"Mu hlenberg doesn't" he snapped.
"Why not?" we bantered.

" MY 0GIRL"1
A review, by Robert Henderson.
0, 0, 0, just see the little lady:
lively and awkward, with little tricks
with her pale blue eyes, and un-
bleached pigtails, a soft corn-yellow,
wrapped in knots about the ears. And
such a manner, as they say, a whiskey
voice and a bright red gown wrapped
around the wonderful limbs! One of
the ponies in the chorus on the right,
a show by herself in the midst of the
whole grand jamboree.
"My Girl" is an almost perfect af-
fair, another "Merry, Merry" and
"Little Jesse James," an intimate re-
vue fit for the road and the terrific
railroad rates. Here is the formula:
a small cast of splendid actors, eight
chorus girls-what an octagon!-a
single setting, a Paul Whitman or-
chestra, lines and lines clever and
fresh, a mass of dance routines from
the Charleston down through the
split,, all run off at a ragtime speed
with a cocktail tempo.
There was so much that was good
about the performance: the juvenille
with the saucer eyes and the sex ap-
peal, (as they say in the trade); the*
bootlegger who made the plot go
round; even the husband and wife in
their first year-the lady of the title.
There was a story, too, of the golden-
fizz and its younger generation, and
every kind of good music.
Esprit and enthusiasm is what I am
trying to say, a kind of contagious
glamor that draws you out of your
seat. I know little of art and aesthe
tics, but I do know that there is noth-
ing in the theatre so compelling, be it
"Phedre" or "Great Catherine," as
this same irresistable spontaneity.
Who doesn't like a good musical com-
edy--the reason all the dull extrava-
ganzas, the heavy Operas can still
keep running-but it is seasons be-
tween a "My Girl" and a "No, No,
Nanette!" The dash and flavor, the
hurry tunes, the burlesque plot, and
the wonderful auburn vampire:
The first rehearsal for "Beggar-
man," Holberg's slapstick burlesque,
translated by Prof. O. J. Campbell,
which the Mimes are to present Tues-
day, Wednesday, and Thursday, Feb-
ruary 23, 24, and 25, was held in the
Mimes theatre yesterday afternoon
under the direction of E. Mortimer
Shuter. The cast will include Richard
Lutes, Dale Shafer, Kenneth King,
James Martin, and Robert Henderson.

A review, by Vincent Wall.
Feodor Ivanovitch Choliapine is a!
a great singer-the greatest perhaps-
but lie is an even greater personality.
A master of make-up, an exceptional,
if eccentric actor, combined with a
wonderful bass voice, he is almost out
of his element, and at least at a handi-
ca), on the concert stage: During his
whole program this was evident; the
nervous twitching of his hands and
his very obvious direction of his ac-
companist, both showed an apparent
desire to give a more complete inter-
pretation of his numbers than could
be obtained from a mere vocal rendi-
Being an artist of such rank thatG
lie can choose his program at random,I
he selected a group of numbers of the
typical concert type; there were all
the old favorites: Massenet's "Elegie,"
"The Song of the Volga Boatmen,"!
"The Two 'Grenadiers"-in short aI
series that would have seemed trite if
they had been sung by any but an art-
ist. and anet artit. f.. 1th~n tb.+ i.,hr

To the Editor:
Since January 5 I imagine every
available University announcement
has been thumbed to the utmost by
thousands of students who, like my-
self, at the end of the Christmas vaca-
tion had begun to set their hearts
longingly on the coming of the next
recess. Not that a one of us doesn't
prefer classes to any other occupa-
tion-no, indeed,-but it is a most
wholesome respite from the monotony
of daily classes to spend one's idle
moments building jolly schemes forI
the next vacation period.
Thus with the writer. But there is
one aggravation surrounding the
coming spring vacation: Easter Sun-
day falls on April 4, but the vacation!
period lies between April 9 and 21. I
don't remember of such an incongru-
ity ever having occurred during my
past years at Michigan. It is a pity
that the Regents couldn't have taken
Easter into consideration when the
vacation periods were determined. It
is true, Easter varies from year to
year by three or four weeks, but
what's the harm if our recess varies
with it, at least sufficiently to include
that date either at the beginning or
the end of the period. The date set
for our spring recess this year is
about as rational as though the
Christmas holidays were to start onj
