anything, and they should if Mayor
Green is a gentleman, Michigan will
have for a period of two years one of
the most liberal and advanced state
governments in the country. He has
promised us honest government, some-
thing which Michigan has often been
without, and, most of all, he has
promised to make his state adminis-
tration -as representative of the people
as possible; decrying the "one man"
policy of his predecessor.
Representative government is the
ultimate ideal of all democracy. To
suppose that the people, by the act of
election, have given a man supreme
power over their government is a de-
lusion, but fortunately one from which
Mayor Green does not seem to suffer.
Michigan is evidently tired of the ma.-
chine which has dominated its state
politics, as it showed In the primaries,
and Michigan trusts that there will be
no similar machine developed under
its new administration. The high
idealism and lofty constructive pro-
gram which our candidate committed
himself to before the primaries is en-
couraging indeed, in politics, and de-
serves the commendation that the
voters have accorded to it.
The University is proud to have one
of its graduates so near to the gover-
nor's chair. The University is grati-
fled to hear the fresh wave of idealis-
tic political policies to which Mayor
Green has committed himself. The
University, most of all, welcomes
Mayor Green as its guest, and trusts
that he is still, above all, a Michigan
For absolute impartiality in the
enforcement of law, the Seattle inci-
dent in which a policeman supplies
information which results in a liquor
raid on his wife now takes the lead.
Arriving home after five years' serv-
ice in the colonies, Baron Byng finds
that thieves have ransacked his man-
sion of clothing and jewelry. If he
lived in America, the baron could get
the same climax for his return by just
stepping out for the evening.

Welcome, Minnesota? For our
first meeting on the gridiron this
year under the arrangement
which allows us twice our ac-
customed pleasure, we welcome
you. It is our fondest hope that
you will receive the cordiality
-which has always been extended
us when our teams have visited
your institution.
Next year Michigan will have ready
for dedication a new football stadium,
seating more than 70,000 spectators
and furnishing a new background for
the games that have made Ferry field
In connection with the new stadium,
there are two question that predomi-
nate: first, what is to be its name;
second, what team will meet Michigan
in the dedication game?
As for the fir,t question, it is one
in which all students should be in-
terested. The vmm: (ement to name the
new Literary builling Angell hall was
started by undergraduates, and the
suggestion accepted by the egents.
The npine for the new stadium should
come from an undergraduate. Sug-
gestions, if mailed to The Editor of
The Daily, will be placed before the
As to the second question, the mat-
ter is, of course, up to the Board in
Control of Athletics. However, there
has been considerable discussion as
to what team should face the Wolver-
ines that day, due to the agitation
concerning a game with Harvard.
While the student body would be glad
to welcome Harvard, or any Eastern
institution, to Ann Arbor for an inter-
sectional football game, the honor of
dedicating the stadium should be
given to one of Michigan's worthy
opponents (and close friends) in the
Big Ten Conference, preferably Ohio
State, Illinois, Minnesota or Wiscon-
Michigan has been honored by invi-
tations to either dedicate or open sta-
diums in three of these institutions.
Now that it Is Michigan's turn to be
host at a similar ceremony, the com-
pliment should be returned.
Early last month the people of thei
sta'te of Michigan chose their candi-
date for governor in the party 4n
which nomination is practically
equivalent to election. Mayor Fredl

To The Editor:
Since Michigan discovered, that it
was a co-educational institution, about
three days ago, much meaningless
nonsense has been written about
everything from the low morals at
Dartmouth to the relative ages of ma-
turity of men and women. All of this
is interesting, and as profound as col-
lege thought ever gets but so far the
hand of guilt has pointed very little
at the most responsible group on the
campus for our present low state of
morals, if such exists, and that is the
co-ed, herself.
Now Michigan men are no saints,
as everyone who knows college stu-
dents can testify; but on the other
hand they are not the licentious beings
that certain parties believe; taking
innocent girls from the seclusion of
their homes and kissing them good
night and petting on the boulevard.
If the college woman, who is also a
party to all such orgies, were as un-
blemished as she seems to believe
that she is, the student would be
forced to go to Ypsi for his dates. As
it is now, the high moral standards
of the Ypsi girls give them a great
competitive disadvantage in obtaining
dates with college men.
The assertion was made that co-
eds who refuse to pet can find no
dates and consequently are left lone-
some at home when all the other co-E
eds are out. This i's so false a state-
ment as to make the respectable male
students rise in anger. Personally,
I know of one girl who could have
had all the dates she wanted with a
gentleman who never expected to have
a petting party with her. All went
well until a balmy evening in spring,
when, her sorority was giving its
spring party and the back yard was
equipped properly. so that the cha-
perones could not see it and there
was a full moon and said co-ed invited
the immoral student out there and if
any man could help himself in such
circumstances, it was not because she
was willing to lend her aid.
One of the first dates I ever had in
Ann Arbor was with a professor's
daughter. She was good looking and
I expected that with her cultural
background she would be interesting.
She smoked, drank, and asked me if I
didn't love her before we had been to-
gether half an hour. I didn't!
How many male students have had
the same experience? How many
times have university men been asked
"Are you afraid of me?" when they
weren't punctual about petting these
high minded co-eds who obiectnso

To The Editor:
Deeply interested in the instructive
discussion going on in your columns
on the subject of co-education, I sub-
mit the following observations for the
consideration of your readers.
First of all, the revival of this con-
troversy suggests that, like prohibi-
tion, co-education is still an open
question in America. That gives us a
further opportunity to understand it
and revise our opinion, if necessary.
Any discussion on the subject ulti-
mately turns upon the question of
morality. It may be worth our while,
therefore, to understand what moral-
ity is. In its simple and unsophisti-
cated form it implies a degree of con-
formity to certain accepted notions of
right and wrong and rules of conduct,
especially bearing on the sex relations
of men and women.
A careful observer, not to speak of
a student of traditional morality,
would notice that this morality has
passed through several phases and
presents itself differently in different
countries. In some parts of the
Orient, for example, it compels women
to go veiled. It taboos the discussion
of sex matters among adolescent boys
and girls. It enjoins upon them the
observance of many other social con-
ventions which common sense will re-
pell. All this is done presumably to
avert the chances of illicit 'relations
between the two sexes. Many ortho-
dox people in those countries actually
extol such moral rectitude. But for
one who knows the comedy of those
thin veils it is a comical affair.
In the West, however, morality pre-
sents a strong contrast. Here women
not only go without a veil, but fre-
quently "lapse" into public dances
with their men folk. A perfectly legi-
timate and harmless pastime to be
sure, but different from the Oriental
morality. In France young couples
live together without the formality of
a marriage and without shocking any-
one's sense of morality To an old-
fashioned person from the East, such
a phenomenon may seem like an irre-
deemable sin and the whole civiliza-
tion doomed to perdition. 'Fortunately
for us we do not entertain any seri-
ous misgivings about this. I have
chosen these instances at random
simply to show the diversity of feeling
attached to this hallowed term,
This settled we have now to find out
the nature of the immorality said to
be rampant in some co-educational
institutions and especially to inquire
whether this promiscuity in sex rela-
tions on the part of men and frailty
in matters of courtship on the part of
women, are due to co-education. I
believe they are not. They are a part,
a perverted part, perhaps, of human
nature. .And anything that is part of
our instinctive make-up is not a vice
and its expression not immorality. It
is a function of their organic whole.
Segregation would not help such ex-
pression. If you prevent their meet-
ing on the campus they will meet in
Ypsilanti. That, obviously, will not
secue the desired end. So segrega-
tion will either evade the issue or
send it underground.
The point is that if the vital prob-.
blems of men and women are com-
mon, if they must share the respon-
sibilities of life in common, why can
they not be tolerated to receive
knowledge and understanding of these
vital problems on a common plat-

form. Mutual understanding between
the two sexes is no small part of edu-
cation. Such lack of understanding
was responsible for the iniquity of the
treatment of women in previous times..
Segregation will simply aggravate it.
If our education, and especially Uni-
versity education, cannot adjust such
irregularites of sex behavior as may
manifest themselves from time to
time, it is a tacit confession of one
thing: "Our education is the bunk!"
A word as to the suppression of
feminine personality in co-educational
institutions. I don't know if our
"alarmist" friend had Roosevelt or
Wilson in his mind when he referred
to personality. At any rate, such per-
sonality as is desired among women,
if not conspicuously manifest yet, will
develop in due course. We should
not forget that it was only yesterday
that man condescended to recognize
her equal share in political and social
privileges. These matters which, at
our present stage of development,
must of necessity be handled exclusi-
vely by women are being taken care
of by women's organizations in co-
educational institutions. Look, they
are already contemplating a league
building. Men can lend all their
financial and moral support to such
laudable enterprises. These exclusi-
vely female activities in co-education-
al institutions, further reduce the ne-
cessity of segregation.eawraenan i.


Frieda Hempel, one of the most
popular stars of the Metropolitan;
Opera Company, and a favorite on con-
cert tours will initiate the Choral Un-
ion concert series in Hill auditorium
on Monday night. Madame Hempel,
who has appeared in Ann Arbor sev-
eral times in previous years, has been
outstanding since her debut over
twenty years ago. During that time
she has gained a reputation for a love-
ly lyric soprano voice-she is a colora-
tura-and a personality that scores.
And she is more than unique in opera
for the fact that she has kept her fig-
ure, has collected a minimum of freak

Frieda Hempel
in the title role of "Carmen"

husbands, and does not keep alligators
in her bath tub.
She is it is true, an anomaly to
some: one New York critic said that
she has ruined her voice attempting
too dramatic roles; another that she
is the greatest soprano in the profes-
sion. This conflict of opinions fol-
lows any great artist in the musical
world, and always will until more def-
initely objective standards of musical
criticism are raised. But Hempel
never is an object of much anxiety
to the boxoffice, she has a good man-
ager, and she is sure fire everywhere.
Assisted by Ewald Haun, flautist,
who will accompany her in some
arias and Rudolph Gruen, pianist, she
will present the following program:
Rondo Capriecioso......Mendelssohn

(a) My Mother Bids Me Bind My Hair,
(b) ARIA from the "Marriage Canta-

Miss Hempel
Miss Hempel's program is chosen
with care-she has not been a concert
artist for twenty years without recog-
nizing the value of a balanced menu
for all varieties of music lovers. The
Brahms and Schumann numbers offer
her the widest field for a display of
her artistic ability, and the folk songs
to conclude the program are designed
to chuck the audience under the chin.
The following comment oil "Mike"
Ames, erstwhile leading lady of the
Union opera, and now in vaudeville
is quoted from "Variety" after a Los
Angeles performance:
"Lionel Ames in third spot did a
new kind of dame. This boy with a
stronger voice would be a serious
menace to Eltinge or Norman as his
slant on fem impersonations is new
and good for laughs. Between num-
bers he has regular gorilla chatter and
kidding on his stuff. Costumes elab-
orate and entire act in class and style.
Looks like a million in a wig, but
the pipes are not strong enough."
Several of the other dramatic lights
of the campus in previous years are
now on the legitimate, or doing big
time. Warren Parker of several suc-
cessful comedy club productions and
a member of the Ann Arbor Players
during the summer session, is now in
stock company in Des Moines, Iowa
playing juvenile leads. Lillian Bron-
