agree with the New York Times,
which respectfully answered Mr.
Young, "There is such a thing as gen-
eral ability, demonstrated in many
ways, and recognized by all, which it
is fair to assume can be turned suc-
cessfully to public service."
Like the man who, with great sur-
prise, discovered that he had been
speaking prose all his life and hadn't,
known it, Michigan citizens were
aroused to a new conception of the
greatness of their state recently when
the Christian Science Monitor pub-
lished a special edition devoted to its
many-sided development.
The edition was responsible for
bringing home to many the well-
rounded cultural and material growth
of the state. The supplement devoted
page rafter page to state industry,
comerce, transportation, education,
art, music, politics, manufacturing,
agriculture, tradition, and social life.
All the diffused and varied activity
which go to make the state a scene of
hustling industry, and the institutions'
of learning which mark it a center of1
culture were adequately treated in the
Michigan supplement.
Probably the venture was a profit-
able one in a financial way. It was at
least immensely so in an educational
way, in bringing citizens of the state
to a tardy realization of its growth,
for occasionally we have to have
greatness which is near at hand
pointed out to us before we can see it.,
"HOW MANY 'E'S IN....99
"How d' ya spell. ... ?" That is
probably the busiest phrase in the
English language. Whereever anyone
"takes pen in hand," those words will
sooner or later query the other per-
son present. And, of course, it is not
only the "uneducated" that get into
spelling difficulties-in fact, the ma-
jority of "uneducated" don't bother
with spelling.
The biggest bug-a-boo in modern
writing is spelling: rules of grammar
have been so simplified that they cease
to worry anyone to any great extent;
punctuation even has been freed of
many restrictions. But spelling re-
mains complicated, even in a civiliza_
tion that turns to efficiency and sim-
plification in everything else. The
business man who travels by air-
plane or fast train, who demands sub-
ways for speed, who carefully com-
putes the best possible cycle of work:
for each employee so that the most
efficient speed can be maintained, who

tainly wothy of consideration.

massacre of Jallianwalla Bagh (Am-
ritsar), the Akali movement, the Swa-
deshi (nationalistic) movement, the
Chandpur strike, and the strikes in

the recent period of political agitation

social upheavel that is taking place in
In order to convince the audience,
Sir Fredrick told a story of a boat-
man who took things as he was told
one way or the other on any topic etc.
What can you expect from an ignorant
boatman? India is not a nation of
boatmen. The educated and the in-
telligent Indians try not to generalize
about English people from a character
sketch in Dickens or from the violent
self expression of its worst elements.
About the slave mentality of the
Indians, Sir Fredrick made certain
remarks quoting from Mahatma
Gandhi and gave his interpretation of
what Mahatma Gandhi meant by
"Slave mentality." Even if certain
Hindus have a slave mentality, may it
not be the direct outcome of the Edu-
cational system that is set up in In-
dia? Dr. William T. Harris, United
States Commissioner of Education,
stated in his speech before the Na-
tional Council of Education during its
session in Cleveland (1908) "England's
educational policy in India is a blight
on civilization. I have studied the
problem pretty closely in the latter
part of the eighteenth century." Wil-
berforce, the English philanthropist,
proposed to send school teachers to
India, but a di-rector of the East India
company objected, saying "We have
just lost America from our folly in
having allowed the establishment of
schools and colleges, and it would not
do for us to repeat the same act of
folly in regard to India."
The reforms which England has
given so far to India are nothing more
than baby's toys, and these even were
1obtained by sacrifice of many Indian
Even the Morley-Minto re-
rms (1909) which Sir Fredrick
characterizes as of a nature of a "De-
bating society" were obtained through
the serious political uprisings of the
Indian Nationalists from 1898-1906.
The Montague-Chelmsford reforms
(1919), insignificant as they may be,
were the outcome of the invaluable
service which India Tendered both in
men and money during the last world
Sir Fredrick made a remark indi-
rectly that India cannot protect her-
self, due to the want of able Indian
military officers, against the foreign
ivasion. Does the history of the
British rule in India show any in-
stance where a single chance has been
given to India for the development of
military leaders?
A class of military leaders will arise
in India, when the time demands.
Reza Khan, a mere soldier, became
the great general when the time de-
manded. Kemal Pasha, a mere army
officer, blossomed into a great general
at the call of his mother country.

of the annual May Festival at S
o'clock in Hill auditorium.
The truly great artist who is not of
the theater, who is without affecta-
tion, and who is still a personality is
truly rare. Madam Homer is this.
Madam is simplicity in the style of the
truly great and in the taste of thePLEASE
aristocrat. She is purely herself, f
without mannerisms, without the D'
opera; she might have been your
gother. gA Ko
And Madam is possessed of some-
thing greater than the personality of
simplicity; she is one of the greatestDATHS
contraltos of all time. Since her
debut at the Metropolitan she has
been one of the conspicuous figures in ON TH E
the opera. She is a contralto, it is
true and Madam is sorry, for the parts
of the contralto are unkind. It is the
tradition of the opera that is adamant
that the soprano must have the sym-_
pathy with the tenor, while the con-
tralto and the bass be the ladies and
gentlemen of sin, with black hearts,!
and the manners of the barroom.
However if when in character Madam IE
Homer is the antithesis of her real MAKE''
personality and manner she is in any
event one of the most popular of the p e j
famous artists. MAN N'S e
Her favorite operas are "Orpheus"
and perhaps "Aida" and the parts are
of type; one of her most interesting
character bits, she believes, is the AW AhfyI"Ga

An interesting feature of the pro-
posed copyright bill has cropped out.
It was of sufficient importance to re-
quire a reopening of the hearings,
probably because many women of notej
opposed the copyrighting of dress de-j
The committee was told very plain-
ly by one woman witness that Con-
gress should not enact any law which
would be a barrier to the gratifying
of the American woman's desire for
new clothes; and that the average
American woman has a more avid
curiosity about fashions than any
other subject.
From the testimony offered, it ap-
pears that American women are not
very much interested in the settlement
of the French debt or the economic
situation in Europe. What they want
to know is the prevailing and coming
styles of sleeves and whether dresses
are to be long or short and what
styles of collars are to be worn.
It was argued that if the sales of
dress patterns were to be restricted it
would deprive the American women
of home dressmaking, curtail the use
of sewing machines, and finally pre-

Perhaps the most unique feature of

and the personnel of the company is
even more of interest to those who
have attended the plays~ given by
Masques, Comedy Club and Mimes
during the year.
The plays form a cycle of six, each
play being of a slightly different type,a
one play being presented each week.
The first week will open with Bernard
Shaw's "Great Catherine" which was
given this season with great success
by Comedy Club for the phenomenal
run of ten performances in Ann Ar-
bor an ten on tour during spring va-
cation. This play was without doubt
the most popular of the year and
definitely lifted the field of campus
d-ramatics for the season from the
amateur performances of little signifi-
cance to an almost professional
