HYSTERIA
We must have law and order. Prop-
erty must be protected. We must have
universities, and universities must
have stucl'ents. Studehits like to have
football games, and before the games
they like to have pep meetings.
Two 'of these institutions do not go
well together, pep meetings and law
and order. One is necessary and the
other is not. So the solution is obvi-
ous.
Didactic dim-wits will argue: Col-
lege students ought to know better,
they ought to be able to use their
beads, to reason. But there are times
when a student is not a student. One
of these times is when he is part of a
mob., Another of these times is when
he has just had certain emotions
mauled, teased, tampered with by pro-
vocative meddlers, who know not what
they do.
So when a college student is a part
of a mob after a pep meeting, one can-
not expect reason. Quite plainly there
is one logical method of riot and raid
prevention: eliminate the mob.
INDIVIDUAL STUDY
Extension of the individual study,
plan by the trustees oftPrinceton uni-
versity again draws attention to the
idea of education whereby competent
upperclassmen may make a concen-
trated investigation of a few subjects
instead of a less thorough study of the
regular number.
In 1922, Princeton authorities in-
augurated the system by allowing the
undergrwituates to elect four rather
than five subjects. Under this plan
several students indicated such.excep-
tional ability that the faculty decided
to take the second step, namely, the
sibstitution of a three course program
for the four course one, sooner than
expected. This year, four seniors who
? proved themselves competent in their
junior year were thus allowed to de-
vote additional time to individual)
study under the guidance of the fac-
ulty.t
In such means of education which
include the honors courses at this in-
stitution, the student comes to an ap-
preciation of his own powers. In ad-
dition to becoming very well informed
upon his special subject, he develops
methods of study which will prove in-
valuable in meeting the problems in'
later life.
Although the system cannot directly
concern the entire student body, it;
does set a goal for all. Moreover, its,

on the outskirts and cheer themselves
hoarse for the "Duce."
Just the other day he dedicated a
new college at Perugia, intended for
the use of foreign students. With
lofty and noble sentiments he further-
ed the cause of education, threatening
to make the Mediterranean a "Roman
Lake," as it was in the days of Car-
thage, and picturing before the eyes
of the simple country folk gathered
there, the glories of Rome when it de-
stroyed Carthage and ruled the South;
he pictured also his plans for repeat-
ing the process, with even more de-
struction. And the mountain folk of
Perugia cheered and marveled at the
way in which a great man dedicates
an educational institution. Perhaps
now that they had that great college
they could turn out some g'reat man
who yould make a "Roman Lak" of
the Mediterranean and destroy things
and make people generally fearful and
unhappy.
The lofty idealism of the great Dic-
tator is only paralleled by his sublime
action. Immediately on the heels of
his mighty dedication speech came al-
leged revelations that he was planning
to take some land away from Turkey
in Asia Minor, and thus begin sum-
marily his process of high minded
statesmanship.
His prompt action is commendable,
and might well be an example to poli-
ticians the.world over. His ideals are
inspired by his self admitted "lofty
mission." All hail the "Duce" of
Fascism-Mr. Mussolini-and his new
lake.
CREDIT ABUSES
Sixteen months ago the national as-
sociation of credit men began an in-
tensive national campaign to combat
the losses suffered by business men
through credit frauds ofvarious kinds.
These losses ran into the millions.
Today, they have been greatly reduced,
many sharpers and professional bank-
rupts punished, and credit abuses gen-
erally diminished. It has been esti-
mated that ,over $10,000,000 has been
saved to the country's business.
It is difficult to estimate the benefits
of curbing credit abuses. In these
days o, economic interdependence the
public has to pay for them whether
directly or indirectly. Obviously, the
merchant who has credit losses to
make up will be forced to charge more
for his merchandise. But if those are
decreased he may sell his goods
cheaper, do a greater volume of busi-
ness, and reap larger profits.
More than ninety per cent of the
I billions of dollars. worth of business
done in the country each year is
handled on a credit basis. In fact
there is but $5,000,000,000 worth of
currency in circulation while bank
clearances will total over $500,000,-
000,000. The protection given to
"paper" money should be just as com-
plete as that given to gold, silver, and
currency. Such is rapidly coming to
be the case. Stricter regulation of
credit and the curbing of its abuses
will aid modern business, help pro-
tect the public from sharpers and con-
fidence men, and benefit the country
generally.
A BALANCED BUDGET
By introducing into the Chamber
of Deputies the first balanced budget
since the World war, the Poincare
government has guided France to one
of the most important and desired ob-
jectives in her economic recovery.
In addition to reversing the deficit
producing policy of national expendi-
tures, the budget bill provides for

definite uses of the surplus, estimated
at 578,000,000 francs, which will fur-
ther aid the prosperity and welfare
of the country. Home industries, par-
ticularly the production of wheat, will
be thus encouraged. Inasmuch as
this aid will stop importation of goods
from those countries in which the
franc is now discounted, it will also
assist in the stabilization of the
monetary system. Likewise, provision
is made for the retirement of certain
foreign and domestic loans.
Adoption of this program will not
be all sweetness and light. Its ac-
ceptance will commit the French gov-
ernment to strict economy and the
taxpayers to a very substantial bur-
den.
For these identical difficulties, how-
ever, its inauguration and administra-
tion will be increasingly significant
in the return to normalcy.
With the other world powers. Ger-
many is now getting a taste of the
treaty breaking policy which it dem-
onstrated in 1914 from the Chinese
who are unofficially nullifying unsat-
isfactory provisions.
Long standing traditions are being
openly flouted when prominent figures
like Queen Marie absolutely refuse to

INDIGNATION
To The Editor:
"Each purchaser will be limited to
two tickets." These words are quoted
from a notice in the October 19th
Daily which stated that .more than
650 tickets for the Michigan-Illinois
game would be placed on sale at 9
A. M. October 20.
Miss Co-ed arose at a shockingly
early hour, and after a hasty break-
fast, dashed to the Administration
building, reaching there at 7:30 A. M.
Expecting that at least 325 people
could get tickets, she found to her
satisfaction that she was number 211
in line. She cheerfully endured one
and one-half hours of waiting in spite
of rain and cold. The line slowly
moved along and just as she was with-
in reach of the door a voice boomed,
"All gone!" Six hundred and fifty
tickets went to about 175 people.
How come? Because each man (only
men would do it) took several ath-
letic books and got tickets for his
friends, allowing them to secure their
beauty sleep and thus leaving 150
patient sufferers in the lurch.
Though Michigan men have had
much to say about the co-eds, this ex-
perience has convinced some of the
co-eds that campus men have at least
a few faults, prominent among them
being not only a self-centered disre-
gard for justice, but lack of consider-
ation for the rights of others.
-Indignant Co-ed.
OUR MUSICAL CRITIC
To The Editor:
For five years I have witnessed the
various activities on this campus,
some enthusiastically and some pas-
siyely; but I must hesitate in my
eager quest of education to congrat-
ulate The Daily for its unfaltering
consistency in at least one depart-
ment, whether or not its other phases
can be so evaluated. I refer to the
musical criticism. Undeniably, this
department has been astonishingly
consistent in its presentation of un-
intelligent criticism since 1922.
Quite naturally, one cannot be ex-
pected to remember specific instances,
but my memory does prompt me in re-
calling one amusing critique made of
Kreisler by one Robert Henderson,
for whom I have much respect as a
youthful actor but none as a critic,
who confided in us that the violinist's
technique was unpolished! Remark-
able news, that! It is generally con-
ceded that artistry begins where
technique ends; the thoughtful Robert
did not deny Kreisler artistry for no
other reason undoubtedly, than that
the musical world admits him as the
greatest violinist. Iva Scholnick,
concertmaster of the Detroit Symph-
ony and a rare violinist himself, re-
cently ventured the opinion that
Kreisler had long forgotten his con-
scious' technique to replace it with
artistry.
I riight further add that Kreisler
has executed pieces of music before
gatherings of famous contemporary
violinists that were of such difficult
technical quality that no other in-
dividual has ever attempted them. But,
nevertheless, Ann Arbor learned that
Kreisler's technique was shameful.
This is not an isolated case dragged
in to prove my goint, but one of which
the campus still talks.
As optimists do, I had hoped for a
change this fall-and then to read of
Hempel's childish little party! There
was no aria; she sang nothing that
only the select few could understand;
the consciously sophisticated critic
(to desecrate the term) was grieved.
Hempel had misjudged the commun-
ity's ability to appreciate the classic-

ho hum .. .
But all that is relatively nothing;
The Daily reserved Wednesday morn-
ing to climax its amusing stupidity.
A review labelled, "Barre Hill and
Philip La Rowe," was positively bar-
ren of any evidence of specific musical
knowledge. The writer adored the
Prologue and further astounded us
with the information that Hill had
"breathed into its rather haunting,
lines a rhythm and feeling;" imagine
a singer breathing! what news! The
intelligent specific criticism that the
singer richly deserved was omitted,
for he acquitted himself nobly both
vocally and artistically; incidentally,
I was the first to tell him so. But
the gross neglect fell upon Philip La
Rowe; he was completely ignored.
Not one phrase spoke of a youthful
organist whom Palmer Christian has
selected for his assistant, and whom
Theodore Harrison praised in unfalt-'
ering terms after the concert. An
embryo artist who substitutes in Mr.
Christian's absence on Wednesday af-
ternoons is -"unworthy of even one
n1hraaPai1mr ensncA. ..',-.a.

son. Miss Welden, violinist, is a grad-
uate of the University School of Music,

THE DETROIT STRING QUARTETTE
The Detroit String Quartet, as-
sisted by Stefan Kozakevitch, baritone.
and the Ukrainian choir will give a
concert at the Majestic theater in De-
troit (at Woodward near Willis) on
Tuesday, October 26 for the benefit of
children of the Passaic Textile Stik-
ers.
The above mentioned ensemble will
present an interesting program of
mostly Russian music, which will be
well worth the hearing. The Detroit
String Quartet i composed of Ilya
Schkolnik, first violin, William King,
second violin, Valbert Coffey, viola
and Georges' Miquelle, 'cello, all of
whom are members of the Detroit
Symphony orchestra. Stefan Kozake-
vitch, baritone, has appeared in Ann
Arbor on various occasions, and pre-
sented some exceptionally fine num-
bers in the annual productions of
the Cosmopolitan club. The Ukranian
Choir under the direction of Ivan Ata-
manec is also a popular organization
both locally and in Detroit.
The string Quartet will present a
program of well known and popular
numbers, mostly of Russian music.
GREENWICH VILLAGE FOLIES
A Review, by Kenneth Patrick
Jiggling through its situations and
sometimes halting in a rather precari-
ous position, the seventh edition of
the Greenwich Village Follies fared
well in its final week at the Shubert
Detroit Opera house. At the time of
seeing it, the review is rather disap-
pointing, but still it has points that
seem to linger and improve with the
telling. Several changes in movement

have been incorporated into this last
edition, but still it would be known as
a product of the Bohemians, should
it come unheralded. That may be a
compliment, and then again.....The
l impression of many in the audiences
seems to be that, like Ziegfeld's glori-
fication, "America's Greatest Revue"
has had its day.
What seem to be most missed in the
whole show are any musical numbers
which linger in either the memory or
the lobby. The nearest approach was
that of "Whistle Away Your Blues"
sung by Evelyn Hoey and Bailey and
Barnum. Next in line was "Wouldn't
You," rendered pleasingly by Miss Del-
roy.' A pretty bit is "Cinderella," in
three scenes, which brings practically
every one in the cast. "The Sincer-
est Form of Flattery" consists of a
series of imitations of such stars as
Nora Bayes, Ethel Barrymore, Jean
Eagels, Al Jolson, and others, made
more comic by the mixed-up way in
which they are given.
Especial mention should be given
