friends, parents, and other outsiders
to lend their support in the project?
Michigan spirit will have a chance to
manifest itself as it never has before
next fall.
It is reasonable to believe that,
should this latest event fail, some
such arrangement as sitting all stu-
dents together will be effected with
the opening of the new stadium in
1927. Although there is a permanent
cheering section at Illinois, the re-
mainder of the student body is seated
in one block and students have no
better chance than outsiders or
alumni to procure extra tickets. The
underlying motive is obviously to
eliminate every impediment to con-
centrated cheering. If Michigan stu-
dents were deprived of the opportunity
to secure one, two, or more extra tick-
ets to home games, they would .un-
doubtedly, and righteously, feel that
a serious injustice had been done.
them. Such a possibility would be
obviated, for some time, at any rate,
with the success of the new venture.
The Student council did not evolve
the new plan as an only alternative.
It came after a committee had spent
months in studying the problem, not
only at Michigan, but the difficulties
found In other universities. The ef-
fects of the undertaking, if successful,
will be far reaching. At worst, it
should be better than any situation
during recent football seasons. The
Council will finish its task during
registration week next fall-the fate
of the plan will rest with the student
Seances and spiritualists, long the
refuge of the feeble-minded and the
weak-willed, will be abolished for-
ever if the bill introduced by Repre-
sentative Bloom, Democrat, New York
City, passes Congress; and of all the
things that Congress has done this
session, few are more worthwhile.
Fakes and fortune tellers are not
common in this community, and one
would not expect them to be, for su-
perstition recedes, as learning ad-
vances, and in an educational center
it is extremely unnatural for such un-
reasonable practices to thrive. In
large cities, however, with their
hordes of uneducated day laborers and
credulous foreigners, the practice of
defrauding the public in this manner
is serious indeed, and has become a
real menace. In these metropolitan
districts, such legislation can ac-
complish a great deal, and will repay
many times over the trouble that it
involves for the government.,
Intelligent people have long realized
that crystal gazing and fortune telling
are no more than flagrant frauds, and
Houdini, the famous magician, has of-
fered $10,000 to the medium who can
perform a single trick that be icannot
prove to be a fake. Houdini's money
is safe, for none of these ethereal
beings who nonchalantly talk with the
spirits of departed greats will risk the
lucrative patronage of a substantial
clientele to be exposed by him.
In Detroit, there are two thousand
people making their livings under
these pretenses, and several of the
more successful have made consider-
able fortunes from the credulity and
ignorance of the residents of that city.
Many of them advertise the fact that
they are real mediums and can com-
municate with the dead, locate lost
articles, and perform a number of
other supernatural wonders. If they
are sincere, they would take advan-
tage of this most tempting offer that

Houdini has made to them; if they are
i not sincere they are obtaining money
under false pretenses, and should be
dealt with with all the severity that
the Bloom bill implies.
Of the various requirements faced
by the entering male student, the
physical examinations as given during
preceding years has undoubtedly been
the most arduous in the first week's
experience. After the equally lengthy
preliminaries in this process, the em-
bryo University student was slowly4
advanced through station after sta-
tion of dental students and medical
interns in a -manner quite similar to
the modern methods of industrial pro-
duction. With the announcement by
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe that pre-
liminary examinations may be given.
by home town physicians, and with
the elimination of one-half of the
physical measurements by Dr. George
A. May, this lengthy procedure has
been materially shortened.
Next fall, entering students will be
free from the tedious delays experi-

A Review by ROLLS
It was the type of concert that crit-
ics seek, perhaps in vain, to embalm
forever in the pale amber of their
pagan prose. A moody and stormy
study with rhythm and melody that
is stupenduous-such was the Ensem-
ble Robinsonian which came to Ann
Arbor last night on its annual tour
of the nation.
It was of the theater, was this con-
cert........ Although distinctly not
the Greatest Show on Earth, still
there was some good in it. For in-
stance, the flighty number where
numerous of the participants were
performing in aerial glee-the number
in which the concert reached the
highest point on the program-there
we discovered a certain amount of
rhythm of a presto variety. But it
was not technically perfect and once
or twice on certain movements they
slipped and fell.
El maestro led a group through a
swift, circuitous number, in which
could be distinctly heard the swift
patterings of horses' hoofs, as of the'
famous march of Paul Revere through
Georgia. Here there was something
deeper, something at once weird and
gripping, something that stirred one's
heart, and made one think of the
glories that were once of Rome and
Greece. But our quick eye was dis-
turbed, for throughout this number
the chorus seemed to step on one an-
other's feet, so to speak. It was all
so mixed-up, if one may say so.
But as a relief from the deeper and
finer parts of the program there came
the comedians. These gentlemen put
a certain spice into the program that
otherwise would not have been there,
starnge to say. However, one or two
of them were not of the theater....
they had not the finesse, the grace re-
quired of a true opera star. In fact
we can hold no future for them on
the musical stage-beg pardon, plat-
form. Some of them, thoughseemed
to have been poured into their parts.
Perhaps the leading star, the big-
gest hit of the night, was Professor
Jumbolio, who put on a program, with
his fellow stars, that was permeated
with a spirit of dramatic intensity
and awe.
Never in all our long years in con-
nection with the musical forum have
we heard a piece so touching, so full
of fish horns and harmony, as the
overture as it was played last night
by Robinson's symphony orchestra.
There were tones that swam through
the audience, the harmony of the Me-
dusa, the voice of a Fury, and the
blare of a rusty trombone. Although
the organist tried hard, he couldn't
do much on account of the tempera-
ment of his old and antiquated instru-
But as we look at the performance
from a distance, and what a long walk
it is from there-we see that it lacked
a certain unity that every real con-
cert must have to pass censor. The
management should see to it that more
cohesion is put into the program, or
else we fear that their show will not
be a success when it goes out on the

"Accept no compromise. It is
better to have no legislation than
fake measures passed when as a
matter of fact nothing has been
done and nothing was intended.
It is better to allow two more
years for the organization of
farmers followed by a concerted
demand on Congress. I hope the
Senate and House will now defeat
all so-called farm relief legislation

With the announcement of the de-
tailed plans for Michigan's permanent
cheering section, which will be in-
augurated at Ferry Field at the first
home football game next fall, the pro-
iect appears to be somewhat more
feasible than it didat the time it was
first made public. Provided that the
Student council can create enough
enthusiasm toward the undertaking
during registration week in Septem-
ber to enroll 1,200 students in the
section, the success of the innovation
will be virtually assured, and the or-
ganized cheering of the student body
will accordingly be elevated to a
higher plane than it has ever known.
Theoretically, the new plan is ans
excellent one, ' and the haphazard!
cheering of Michigan students at foot-
ball games in the past is sufficient
evidence -for the need of an improved
system. What with a human maize
"M" of 500 students, and 700 morel
forming a mass of blue for the back-
ground, it will be a rare spectacle,
the like of which has never been
known at more than a single game in'
ether years. Leland Stanford main-
tains a huge cheering section on this
order; and Illinois, with only 500 in
the bloc, has discovered that it af-
fords a most impressive sight. Michi-
gan can have the same-if the stu-
dent body will cooperate.

All gall had been divided into three
parts, and each part thereof entrusted
respectively to the public, the artist,
and the critic. This last endowment
bothered the favorite disciple of Plato
who had been authorized a critic by
the oracle.
"Since I am to be a critic," began
the younger man, "I suppose that I
should buy a musical dictionary or-"
"Slow, Boy," replied the elder.
"That would be not only a waste of
money, but an anachronism to boot.
A real critic needs no knowledge out-
side of himself. He is gifted, inher-
ently, with insight and a sense of pro-
priety; he has acquired a basic train-
ing in that art of which he is sup-
posed to know something."
"That sounds very good," responded
the younger. "I'm afraid that you
have not followed the latest develop-
ments in the art of criticism, how-
ever. We moderns are abandoning
the old theory that critics must spend
the better years of their lives in the
mastering of useless essentials. In-
stead, we must write cleverly, infus-
ing our personality into our words so
that they ring with our individuality-
our spirit. Our criticisms will be fine
essays on the art of being a critic."
"I see," said Plato, clenching his
hands behind his back. "You are the
creators of a new art, pioneers in a
strange and horrible investigation...
But how are you to make criticisms
in the strict sense from these psy-
choanalytic introspections?"
"To be exact, they will not be criti-
cisms. Our new art has transcended
all that, and achieved the expression
of sensation in words."
"Beautiful," moaned Plato.
"And people will read our writings
and be pleased. Impression is every-
thing with us."
"In your new art I suppose that
you will eventually do away with the
artist. You will surely have no need
of him."
"Well, that was our original idea
which we have not demanded of our
public as yet. We cannot accomplish
everything at once. But allow us
time, and we will prove the finality ofj
our art."
"Alas," cried Plato. "When I was
young, things were not so. Criticisms
were intelligent analyses; apprecia-
tions of the artist's performance. Crit-
ics were great and potent in the realm
of the arts."
"Reactionary!" sniffed the disciple.
"And they swayed and moulded
opinion by the soundness of their
"They were keepers of a seraglio
who knew how it should be done but
"But our critics will be sultans, to
follow your figure; they will create."
"You must study heredity sometime
in order to appreciate what you are
planning," replied Plato.
"And in future years we will be
known as great men who established
a, new art," exulted the disciple, who
had paid no attention to the sly in-
sinuations of the other. "We will be

"By your audience?"
"Yes, until we find that we can
abolish it as we did the artists. Then
we can express the fulness of our art
without limitation."
Plato found that he had no ready
argument to combat the optimism of
the younger man. Instead, he said'
softly, "Those whom the gods would
destroy they first make mad."
A review, by Elaine Gruber.
After listening to recitals, if such
they may be called, of artists, one
finds it practically impossible to com-E
ment favorably to any extent upon the
endeavors of amateurs to exhibit their
talent. In some instances, however,
the feeling existed during the recital
given by the pupils of Nora Crane
Hunt, that under interested and in-
tensive training, talent which might
some day equal the great talent of
the recent May Festival artists could
be developed. In other cases, one
