lently, the spirit of the now ordinarily
accepted air-mail pilot, "Nor snow,
nor wind, nor rain, nor night, Can
stop the pilot in his flight." It is the

One evidence that the University ofI
today has not become merely a train-
ing school for the professions, ,giving
a "practical education" only, is seen
in the Senior Sing today. This rever-
ed tradition, this memory of the days
when the University was young,, still
remains. But much of its popularity
has been lost in the past few -years.
Seniors have not taken the enthufsia9-'a
tic interest in it that they once did;
attendance has dropped off consider-,
ably in the past year or so. ,4
It is expected that this year will
show a renewal of interest in this
beautiful custom. Seniors are coming
tb the end of their college road. What
could be more enjoyable than to singG
those college songs-the songs thatl
bring memories of the whole four
years of funs and fellowship here? Al-
though seniors will do the singing to-
night, the echo will be the voices of
the thousands of graduates who are
back in "dear Ann Arbor town," in
memories, enacting over again the
Seniors Sings of their days..
OUTSIDE THE LABORATORY
For years, the laboratory has been
regarded as the abode of theresearch
expert and as the training school for
the embryo scientist or engineering
student. With the development of
aeronautics, however, experimentation
is being carried into a new, realm of
research, namely, the air. Deliberate
I demonstration of this change was re-
cently made when three aeronautical
engineering students, accompanied by
a faculty expert, studied air conditions
for several hours while navigating a
balloon, The observations taken on
the trip, which was conducted entirely
at student expense, served to verify
the theories and principles learned
from the textbook and in the quiz sec-
Because of the value of this experi-
ence in the aeronautical engineering
profession, equal opportunity for its
realization should be extended to
every student in the department. To.
attain that end, recognition of this
new means of education by- the Uni.
versity should follow the success of
the venture just completed, and pro-
visions should be made for entrance
into a new field of experiment.,
EDITORIAL COMMENT I
For the benefit of those who parad-
ed yesterday afternoon in caps and
gowns but seemed to be either too
happy or too bewildered, due to in-
ternal influences, to realize what it
was all about, we wish to state that.
it was Swing Out. The significance
of this event, aside from the fact
that it is a tradition, is obscure as far
as we know.
It is our opinion that it is the final
blow to the also traditional dignity
of the seniors. If there were a large
nmirror placed directly in front of the
doors of Hill auditorium, it is our,
opinion that there would be no par-
ade after. the convopation. The car
and gown, was never designed to en-
hance masculine or feminine beauty.
On the contrary it was invented by a
class of people with whom beauty was
a decided handicap.
Perhaps the most remarkable fea-
ture of a SwingOut is the fact that
although the band keeps playing
rhythmically and lustily during the
entire march no two paraders are ever
in step or in time with the music or

- ' "SAINT JOXN"
The impending performance of Ber-
nard Shaw's "Saint Joan" at the Whit-
ney Theatre Friday evening should
serve to introduce a 'new Shaw to
those of us who have been entertainedI
by his inimitable comedies, but missed
the ponderous "Back to Methuselah.
In "Saint Joan' Shaw has turned
from prophecy to history, and from
speculation to faith. His history and
facts are an extraordinary blending
of actuality and interpretation, of his-
toric detail, and of historic detail
turned insid out. It is a different
Shaw, not in external forn, for that
is eminently characteristic of the
author, but for the reverence, almost
devoutness, with which the'subject is
Shaw has determined it a "chron-
icle play". But it is somethipg more I
than that. The depth of Shaw's genius
is unmistakable. "Saint Joan" is a
play deeply and sincerely felt. With-
out the exalting trial scene, a symbol
of the eternal trial and condemnation
of the eternal free and revolutionary
'spirit before the judgment bar of
false order-without that, perhaps-it
might sink into a merechronicle
play. Then, too, to Shaw, Joan was a
symbol and a vision, the' incarnate
spirit of the revolution, of all saviours,
and martyrs, call them what you will.
The play is at times an exasperating
composition; now rising to the leval
of historical tragedy, now hovering
on - the edge of burlesque; the
strangest possible compound of the
modern and the medieval, of convinc-
ing characterization, and audacious
carricature; of fifteenth century per-
sonages who think and speak in terms
of the twentieth, and most of them the
mouthpieces for the theories and
prejudices of Bernard Shaw.
Like "Back to Methuselah" it is
overly verbose, aid- certain of its ex
cess lines are pretty bad. For in-
stance; "Are yo'-t1n Englishman?"
"No a Gentleman"; which anyone wil
agree is pretty trite.
But its faults are the habitual
faults of its author, and "Saint Joan"
remains one of the most interesting
and most important contributions to
the Modern Theatre.
WHAT PRICE PROGRESS!
In the regular page advertizement
which appears in the May number of
the "Michigan Alumnus" there is on
exhibition a peculiar invention pur-
porting to be a survey of campus
dramatics. Evidently it is nota joke,
but a serious report. We learn that
plays are frequently given in Greek
and Latin-yes right here on this
campus in the present century-and
also in French, Spanish, and German.
(It does not include the Scandinavian.)
These mind you are the representa-
tive productions of "student organiza-
tions," the output of extra curicular
dramatic activity. Then, too, we are
informed, plays are sometimes even
produced in the English language,
but these are fostered by the "classes
jn d'ramatic reading", a mysterious
agency, perhaps a pseudonym for the
talentetd Play Production Classes, and
are not indulged in by the average
After the recent dramatic season in
the Mimes Theatre this is all rather
inexcusable. Shaw, O'Neill, Gilbert,
Jesse Lynch Williams, represented by
a'. Pulitzer Prize Play, Holberg, an
imposing array, if names mean any-
thing. Best of all these plays were
performed in a manner approaching
professional excellence, and the fame
of the Mime Theatre has travelled.
Yet not a word in the article in ques-
tion which so much as suggested aI
dramatic enterprise other than the
type one might expect to find in any
well regulated Young Ladies Semi-
nary. To cap the climax a woozy
picture, resembling a road company'
setting for "Uncle Tom's Cabin", heads
the page, with the following inscrip-
tion: "The Comedy Club in 'Bunty
Pulls the Strings', March 9, 1921."
The article is possibly lifted from an
"Alumnus" of years past. But what
price progress, may we ask'?
