and scarcely know how to make more.
It is true that quite a few have upper-
classmen to help them but most do
not. That will be the purpose of the new
system, to give the first year men the
benefit of acquaintanceships in their
own class, to cultivate the faculty-
student relationship, and to break up
a huge and heterogenous class into
more personal and human groups. It
promises much and will be of benefit
to many.


If those men and women who are
devoting their lives to the teaching
profession in the higher institutions
of learning and those \who are prepar-
ing to follow their footsteps had taken
seriously H. L. Mencken's article en-
titled "The Rewards of Virtue" print-
ed in a recent issue of the Chicago
Tribune, the colleges and universities
in this country would be face to face
with a faculty famine today, even
though it is but a few days since Mr.
Mencken told the public in his usual
radical manner how much more use-
ful are bricklayers than college pro-
His charges against the college pro-
fessor in substance are:
1. He is a lazy fellow who has
chosen to be a teacher so as to escape
more difficult labor.
2. He is one who falsely holds
himself up as making vast sacrifices
for the rising generations.
3. He is one who opposes the in-
crease in knowledge in a violent man-
ner, by not keeping pace with progress
in teaching subjects.
4. He is one whose respect for
learning is meagre. In fact, he is one
who has more interest in it than a
congressman has in statecraft or a
prohibition agent for law.
All these charges are made against
the college professor to show the pub.
lic that he is much less useful than a
bricklayer and consequently worth
less money.
It is unfortunate that Mr. Mencken
has not a deeper insight into the]
worth of the bricklayer and profes-
sor He is so busy idolizing the brick-
layer whom he has placed on a high
pedestal, that he cannot see the true
worth of the college professor. He
evidently does not realize that had it
not been for the college professor or
one who held the same position in
the world of education under a differ-
ent title, there would be no brick-
layers because there would be no de-
mand for them. It has been the ad-

to disseminate, and students would be
given a chance to entertain visitors
who have to leave before the regular
dances start.

To The Editor:
Although one of the questions to
come before the people at the next
general election is whether or not the
State shall have a new consitution,
the major parties have not made an
issue of the event. Official organs
and prominent men of both parties
have declared in favor of the present
constitution. However, when these
newspapers and leaders say, "Michi-
gan has, a good constitution," there
are doubts that anyone has bothered
to read the document; because, in re-
ality, the constitution is not a good
one. Investigation reveals the true
worth of it.
The constitution is too long. True
it is that the document is not as
lengthy as the law book which Okla-
homa uses for a constitution; but,
nevertheless, it contains many pass-
ages which are too voluminous or un-
necessary. The form of government
is obsolete. The representative sys-
tem in use is dodged because one sec-
tion of the State is entitled, under the
law, to control both branches of the
legislature. The administrative board
has added to the executive branch.
These few instances show that the
present constitution has faults. A
more thorough investigation and rem-
edies for the existing condition are
Article I of the constitution defines
the boundaries of Michigan and states
that the seat of the government shall
be at Lansing. Neither of these pro-
visions are'needful, and the State is
thus adding to printing costs, of they
are allowed to remain in the docu-
Article V provides for a legislative
of a Senate and House of Represen-
tatives and reserves the Initiative and
Referendum to the people. The por-
tion dealing with the Initiative and
Referendum is both bulky and faulty.
For instance, it reads, "At least 8 per
cent of the legal voters of the state
shall be required to propose any
measure by petition," and then to in-
sure the correct meaging states as
follows: "Every petition shall be cer-
tified to as herein provided as having
been signed by qualified electors of
the state equal in number to 8 per
cent of the total vote cast for all can-

A Review, by Professor Oscar J.
Mimes' revival of Eugene O'Neill's
S. S. Glencairn opened effectively the
promising season of undergraduate
productions last evening. This cycle
of three related one-act plays is made
for acting by Mimes. The characters
are all men or women without morals
or charm. The work, like much of ard Keybo
O'Neill's, is a melo-drania with a dif-
ference. The action is bold, violent
and intense, yet every bit of it is filled
with the mystery of the sea and the
sad futility of man's life upon its
The first play is superficially a raw
hunk of fo'castle life, of drunkenness,
lust and brawling. Yet env eloping r ~t
the brutal action is the romance of an

sort of incident, Yak dies in the arms
of his pal-that is all. His thwaited
soul goes out into the fog announced
through the act by the rhythmic
blowing of the foghorn. Too great
praise cannot be given to Lorain Nor-
tonfordhis skillful restrained acting
of the difficult role.
"In the Zone" is an incident put
effectively into dramatic idiom with a
fine use of surprise and swift crisis.
It is toldin a spirit of satire and sar-
donic amusement at the innate senti-
mentality of the sailor. Richard
Woellhaf gave a sympathetic per-,
formance of "Smitty" and Donald
Lyons as the Irish Driscoll was snirit-
ed throughout, though he, with most
of the others at times fell out of his
dialect. Kenneth King as the Donkey-
man and Richard Lutes as Olson gave
two bits of comedy acting much ap-
preciated by the audience.
A Review, by Marian Welles.
There is something about a surprise,
something which makes the green-
sward of an oasis seem even fresher
and lovelier than its exact replica
on a castle terrace; and thusly, the
appearance of Barre Hill on the pro-
gram of the State Federation of Wo-
men's clubs was delightful. His ren-
dition of tlpe Prologue to the Opera
"Pagliaci" was a stupendous thing.
It was powerful, virulent, grosse, and
bombastic-a fitting oasis in a not un-
pleasant desert of greetings and
"Youthful Needs."
"In Dreamsl Hear the Sea," written
especially for Mr. Hill by Frank Taber
was an interesting bit on the pro-
gram. In itself, the piece represents
the best work of Mr. Taber, and Barre-
Hill breathed into its rather haunting
lines a rhythm and feeling which made
the number one of the sympathetic
interpretations of the evening. The
musical program was sort but perhaps
that made the few excellent numbers
stand out all the more. One thing is
sure, The Prologue will stand outgal-
ways in our memory.
