to be proof enough as to the worth of
such gatherings. It is not necessary
to agree with every one of the speak-
ers, in fact, it has been the policy of
the committee to chose men who
would give to the student body many
different viewpoints on the same ques-
Reaction to the ideas of men like
Dr. Fitch and William Lyon Phelps,
whom we will hear in a few weeks,
can be invaluable in shaking off the
intellectual lethargy which seems to
possess most college students. This
reaction may be pro or con but in
either case, it will be a benefit.
Now, with this opportunity for ad-
vancement within our grasp, we are
slowly but surely casting it from us
through indifference to it. The very
apparent reduction in attendance be-
tween convocations of last year and
this year shows that the student sup-
port is weakening. Any further drop-
ping off will make discontinuance ne-
cessary, and we will be forced to ac-
knowledge that our experiment is a
Since the idea of the convocations
came from the students, the program
is arranged by students and conducted
by students, it seems that student
support should be willingly given-at
least, until the experiment has had a
fair trial.
If Rene Besnard, French Ambas-
sador to Rome, is successful in his
intended promotion of a meeting be-
tween Aristide Briand and Benito
Mussolini, the arrangements will be
made for the settlement of many of
the petty disputes and differences be-
tween France and Italy.
In a few hours' conversation, these
two men, who are both practical
statesmen, could easily clear up the
present misunderstandings, which
have been evidenced AIn a "campaign
of reciminations" between the two na-
tions. Since the "Duce" has already
conferred with Sir Austen Chamber-
lain and intends to see Dr. Gustav
Stresemann of Germany, it is logical
that he should meet M. Briand who
"is essentially a man of conversations,
believing in personal contacts."
'With several growing sources of
friction between these two countries
there is ample need for cultivation of
understanding and accord. The resi-
dence of anti-fascists in France and
the recent attacks on his person
which have been attributed to' them
have been of personal interest to Mus-
solini. The emigration of many Ital-
ians to France since the American re-
strictions, as well as their settlement
in the province of Tunisia, controlled
by the French, have also raised a de-
mand for more satisfactory agree-
ments. In fact, the time is now ripe
for the consideration of interests com-
mon to Italy and France.
With a consideration by men such
as Mussolini and Briand, the results
should be particularly profitable both
to the peace and harmony of Europe
and to the personal interests of both
Perhaps the most encouraging item
in the day's news is-that life lg al-
most outracing death. According to
figures compiled recently by' medical
authorities, the average life span of
an American citizen has been increas-
ed until it is now 58 years and the
year 2000 may see it at 80 years, the
century mark, or further.
This is not,.the result of the con-
centrated effort of a few individual

or groups. It is the . achievement of
thousands of unknowns-physicians,
legislators, surgeons, public health
officers, sanitation engineers, hygien-
ists, and others, laboring over many
years, trying to make human life
longer and better.
Though it is impossible to estimate
the economic profit to the country it
is not difficult to see the great benefit
to' society at large. The average life
of 58 years stands as the intangible
but nevertheless worthy monument
to the work of those unknowns who
can never hope to get a fraction of
the public recognition they deserve.

Traffic conditions are terrible in the
passageway between U hall and An-
gell hall, and something has to be
done about it. So we propose to have
one of those investigations that are
so popular around here.

Professor A. Franklin Shull will be
chairman of our little committee. He
has had a lot of experience examining
the lower animal species and has de-
livered one or two lectures on evolu-
tion and heredity, so therefore he is
qualified to look into the question of
just why some people like to stand in
that place and talk over everything,
entirely unmindful of those who want
to get through.

Traffic troubles were given as
one reason for the ban against

It appears now that there was some-
mistake regarding the senior medics
being entombed over there where the
steam shovel is digging in the sup-
posed-to-be-extension of North U. We
investigated again yesterday and
found that they had struck water at
about ten feet.
* * *
It's no ordinary well they are dig-
ging there. It's a new water-works
for Ann Arbor. Although most of the
citizens and visitors feel that the
present water Is much to their taste,
the city authorities are going right
ahead and will have a new supply of
water in a few days.

The present water has enough iron
in it so that it is strong enough to run

SITY, ARISE! You have nothing
to lose but your chains! ROLLS'
great campaign to put two repre-
sentative students in seats among
the customers at Ferry Field is
now In full sway. We aim to buy
one of those Stadium Bonds, en-
titling the holder to good seats
for ten years for all the football
games, and then give the seats to
the two students elected by the
campus at large.
* * *
These two students will write an
exclusive story for ROLLS telling how
the game appears from such a vantage
point, and also a description of the
customers: how they look, act, and
talk. Thus the campus will benefit
from knowing just exactly what these
people who really see the game are
like in real life.

A Review, by Vincent Wall
Hempel is a gorgeous creature; her
shoulders are superb, and her voice
is a lusty soprano that has the tones
that makes every hard-boiled shirt in
the house throb and crack in unison.
And Madame used every trick known
to coloraturas from yodelling in the
"Gsaetzli" folk song to heavy vocaliz-
ing in the Proch "Theme and Varie-
ties" with barber shop harmony from
the flautist.
But to an audience that was com-
placently lying on its back twiddling
its toes in the fatuous assumption that
a Metropolitan diva would do at least
one aria from grand opera-she has
created a Violetta that thrilled New
York-the program was a failure. It
was light, with folk songs and plush!
music that had been done at gradua-
tion recitals by every soprano in the
business: "My Mother Bids Me Bind
My Hair," the Schubert "Ave Maria,"
"Way Down Upon The Swanee River"
and "The Last Rose of Summer." And
when "Home Sweet Home" and "I
Wish, I was in Dixie" are done with
glabrbus tears in her vigorous voice..
If Madame hadn't been a cantatrice
from the Metropolitan-a beautiful
blonde with a gown from Poiret and
a buxom figure that still has the right
curves she would have sung some of
her ballads to the retreating backs of
her audience; but personality has kept
,many a prima donna in the game when
low tones are hard to reach and lilt-
ing trills are becoming whiskey.
In fact the most outstanding talent
on the program was furnished by
Rudolph Gruen, pianist.

Philip La Rowe, Assistant to Pal-
mer Christian in the organ department
of the University School of Music will
give the following program in the
weekly Organ Recital on Wednesday
afternoon at 4:15 o'clock in Hill audi-
Marche Religieuse ........ Guilmant
Nocturne (opus 9, No. 2) .... Chopin
Carillon ............... DeLamarter
Caprice Heroigue ............ Bonnet
Elves.................... Bonnet
Adagio (Symphony VI)....... Widor
Cavatina ......................Raff
Toccata .................. Boellman
The Toccata as the last number of
the program is the last number of
Boellman's "Suite Gothique", and is
one of the most interesting in modern
organ music. The theme is first heard
quietly in the pedals and continues to
grow in volume to thesend when the
full organ brings the suite to an ef-
fective close. In the Carillon, the in-
fluence is here too of the continent,
although EriceDeLamarter is an or-
ganist of Chicago. This number forms
one of a series of beautiful pieces of
atmospheric writing by this composer,
and employs the sounds of the caril-
lon so familiar in certain European
* * *
The following critics will write the
reviews of the "S. S. Glencairn" which

will be presented on Tuesday, Wednes-
day and Thursday nights iii the
Mimes theater: Tuesday night, Pro-
fessor O. J. Campbell, of the English
Literature department; Wednesday
night, Vincent Wall; Thursday night,
Kenneth Wickware.
The "S. S. Glencairn" will inaugur-
ate the dramatic season of the Uni-
versity and will be followed by plays
presented weekly by the various dra-
matic societies of the campus.

It is impossible. for the lazy voter
here to alibi that his legislature does
not. -,ant- his vo.te., for 44 of the 48
states provide for absent voting and
some of them even provide for regis-
tration by mail, but despite these lib-
oral provisions it is an appalling fact
that .comparatively few citizens at
the Tniversity avail themselves of
this privilege and duty. And partic-
ularily is this .true of Michigan stu-
d enti.

The Wednesday night dance seems to
fill a real need among the students, judg-
ing from attendance 'both last 'year and
so. far this year. It is in every way the
c= same as a week-end party except that,
lasting only from 8 t. 10 it cannot inter-
fere with one's school work.
Dancing every Wednesday, Friday
- Saturday.

It is estimated that half of the three
or fo'ur thousand eligible voters here
are residents of Michigan, and al-
though it is customary to think of
them as being a type of individual
above ethe average in intelect, yet it
is almost impossible to arouse them
to their obligation as a citizen. In
Ohio, where political activity is con-
sderably greater than in Michigan,
more than 23,0'0 people took advan-
tage of the absent voting privilege in
College students are in a position 1
to be the most intellectual parts of thef
electorate, and consequently to wield
an important influence, in bringing po-
litical institutions to the high.level
that is necessary Ito' efficient adminis-
tration. In the Bowery district in
New York, there are precincts where
as many as 95 per cent of the voters
respond, but there is no "silk-stock-
ing" district where any such high per
cent of active voters can be found.
The contrast is odious.
Conscientious voting is part of the
duty of every qualified student citizen,
and in no better way can the standard
of political life be raised, and in no
more worthy manner can the college
man or woman demonstrate the value
of his or her training.

To The Editor::
Anent your editorial in the Sunday's
Michigan Daily-"Our Own Chicago."
There were several well meant
blows in that outburst of yours, and
from the tone of the sarcasm at the
end of it, I would guess that a De-
troiter wrote it. Now, in this "great
and glorious land of the G free," any
Detroiter has the right to say any-
thing he pleases about Chicago. How-

Precendent may come to the aid of
the Horse Marines and win their fight
for grazing privileges on the campus

asked to come to Ann Arbor to fight
the legal battle that will be instituted
in the courts immediately.

Mr. Whiteside's presentation was
dramatic, powerful, yet withal, so es-
sentially human. It seemed to us a
pity that perhaps the most dramatic
scene of this play was somewhat
blurred by the absence of Miss
Shields. We felt and we are sure that
Mr. Whiteside felt it, but understudies
cannot all be leading ladies.
As to the plot, we cannot say that
it wasremarkable, and were it not
for the presence of the dominant fig-
ure, the story might even be called
cheap melodrama, but Mr. Whiteside's
personality uplifted it from this clas-
sification. Perhaps the English have
