ed critic! The retailing of these un-
certain confessions is in itself a shal-
low business. But when one ma, in
no evidentstouch with the situation,
presumes to stand the authority of
two young, impressionable, publicity-
seeking people against the sincere and
weighty opinions of faculties and col-
lege presidents, one must suspect his
It is such men who are making more
difficult the administration of univer-
sity affairs. They set themselves in
the highways and byways as spreaders
of light. Instead they are selecting
isolated examples, their evidence is,
at best, doubtful, and they are pre-
suming to hand the lie in public to
conscientious, sincere men.
It is to be hoped that these self-
appointed critics will soon be driven
out of the limelight and out of the
headlines of the press so that college
life may be represented, pro and con
at once, by the people who know
actualities and facts. Only in this way
may the people of the country really
know and understand conditions in
their educational institutions. The
universities need no mouthpiece from
without. They are the recorders and
publishers of each of their own min-
ute phases, in truth and entirety.
FOR OUR MARINE
In the involved system of modern
business, it is impossible for some
government expenditures, while bring-
ing no direct return, to foster an in-
stitution beneficial to the whole coun-
try. To a large extent, this applies to
federal aid which will enable Amer-
ican shipping, still in the "infant in-
dustry" stage, to meet foreign compe-
Belief in the practicability of this
viewpoint has led President Coolidge
and the Budget bureau to recommend
a $4,500,000 increase in the shipping
board appropriation, when it learned
that certain foreign companies were
planning to cut rates on the lines over
which American concerns were oper-
ating. The existence of such an
emergency fund coupled with the
notice that the government stood
ready to back its commercial marine
would undoubtedly produce the proper
psychological effect upon the theaten-
ing competitors. Realization of the
strength of the American opposition
will probably lead them to abandon
the idea of price cutting.
Appropriation of the sum requested,
even if it were actually expended,
would be a move beneficial to the na-
tion. The creation of a merchant ma-
rine would preclude discrimination
against American shippers and
would establish a training school for
American sailors as well as a valuable
part of the national defense. That
such protection will be practical and
will be required for only a limited
time is shown by the success which
some American lines have already at-
tained in the foreign trade.
Blame for a head-on electric rail-
road collision is fixed, on the painful
toothache of the motorman. It ap-

"Navy Day," postponed one day in
Ann Arbor on account of rain, was
celebrated yesterday with a big pa-

THIS AFTERNOON: The Play Pro-
duction classes present three one act
plays, "Manlikin(I andl Miniikin", "Riders
to the Sea" and ",The Man with the
Boeler Hat" in University hall audi-
torium at 3 o'clock.
FROM SYNGE TO MILNE
Activities of the Play Production
and Direction classes will receive their
first public inspection at 3 o'clock this
afternoon in the University hall audi-
torium with the presentation of three
one-act plays. The event will be of
double importance to those interested
in campus dramatics because it will
represent the first work in that line
which has been done under the direc-
tion of David Owen, latest addition to
the public speaking faculty. The pro-
ductions are being staged under some-
what of a handicap in that it is still
early for the course to function, es-
pecially under new leadership. Re-
hearsals have been going, on for little
over two weeks, and they have been
under the direction of several stu-
dents, Mr. Owen merely acting in a
supervising capacity. He wishes it
understood particularly thatsthe
greater part of the work has been done
by the individual students. There will
be no admission charged for the per-
formances this afternoon, and any one
who is interested is welcome.
The three plays to be given have
been selected from a group of seven
which have been under rehearsal. The
first is a fantastic bit from the pen of
Alfred Kremymborg entitled "Manikin
and Minikin" wherein two porcelain
dolls come to life. It is directed by
Margaret Lord. The second is "Riders
To The Sea" by J. M. Synge, directed
by Mary Gudekunst and Catherine
Geesey. It is a realistic drama of the
Irish sea folk and their inherent
fatality. The third play, which may
give way to another, is. a satiric bur-
lesque on the acting of two or three
generations ago, and it is written in
the inimitible style of A. A. Milne.
This piece is directed by Ruth Mc-
Cann, and is entitled 'The Man In The
Glimpses of the rehearsals presage

tions, and at least an interesting after-

MUSICAL COMEDY IN DETROIT
Two exceptional musical shows and
one so-so ,comedy are now playing in
Detroit: the "Song of the Flame" and
the "Passing Show" 1926 edition are
the pick of the lot; "Yes, Yes, Yvette"
is holding its own, and will probably
last through a longer run.
The "Song of the Flame" is an
Arthur Hammerstein production, pre-
tentions and with a wonderful ballet
is now at the Shubert-Lafayette and
wil easily run into another week.
Tessa Kosta and Guy Robertson and
as much of the original company as
ever survives for the Detroit and
Chicago companies is presenting the
play which boasts a Russian art choir
of 60 and an American ballet and aug-
mented orchestra. Alive Weaver and
Shep Camp are also in the cast, Miss
Weaver doing some very good toe
work. The opera is romantic (the
background of the Russian revolt of
1917 is used) and is beautifully
staged. The music is by George
Gershwin and Herbert Strothart with
Otto Harbach and Oscar Hammerstein
doing the book and lyrics.
The New York Winter Garden Revue
"The Pasing Show of 1926" is now in
an indefinite run at the Schubert-De-
troit. Incidently this is the third
Schubert revue to play in the city in
the last month. The most unique
thing about the show is that it was
swung from first rehearsal into a pre-
miere in exactly four weeks. Which
means that the leading lady lost

(Where A. U. R. Stops
Return to normalcy has come so
slowly since the World war that any
small step in that direction is ex-
tremely encouraging; and particularly
so if that step involves stabilization
of currency and credits. With this
'act in mind, it is truly gratifying to
learn that. Belgium, one of the prin-
cipal sufW'ers-of the'"war has stabi-
lizad t edrarW and also a medium for
foreign--trade, Q Belga, which will
again put on a srd basis the mone-
tary system of th:t country.
Perhaps with ,-eps toward progress
all around her, even France will soon
come to a saner viewpoint and attempt
to rehabilitate tihe franc with foreign
aid, rather than persist in its attempt
to" restore it to its fd rmer value.
American capital is willing to lend
aid, as is shown in the helgium ar-
rangement, to a nation that is sincere
about recovering its credit;, and if
Belgium can secure fifty millions of
dollars in the United States, there is
So reason to suppose that France
would be unable to float a proportion-

NO MOUTHPIECE NEEDED
Followers of the trend of contem-
porary college life have, sadly enough,
become accustomed to the frequent
exposures of ex-woman students, and
confessions of "disillusioned" college
rnen similar to the one by Wilbert 0.
Cross, whose impressions of college
life as a "gin-drinking, nocturnal pet-
ting, helluva good time" life were pub-
lished in a prominent church: organ
early this September. In the course
of time, however, these followers have
also learned to discount these rabid
discussions in the light of true con-
ditions. They have come to accept
these exposures as a comment on only
a minute minority and not on college
life as a whole. This change has been
brought about by the reports of col-
lege presidaints revealing things as
they saw them in practice, and by the
sincere eforts of college students to
have themselves rightly judged.
One as now astonished therefore by!
the speech of Horace J. Bridges, leader
of the Chicago Ethical society, before
that organization recently. The old
charges of Cross and a woman studentt
were introduced again as "logical
evidence." But worse than this was
th at part of the speech in which
Bridges said, "I dismiss as lundicrous

To The Editor:
If in the two years I have been here
the musical criticisms were of a type
that Mr. Reninger desires, I am sure
that The Daily would have been the
recipient of a letter on "Our Musical:
Critic" and I would not have waited
for my fifth year.
The Music and Drama column is a '
healthy institution. Youth! confident!
of its capabilities-sincere; and hu-
man wherein it is occasionally car-
ried away by words.
But its forte is, it reviews the local
concerts and not the press notices.
I am under the impression that the
type of criticism Mr. Reninger wants
could be written before the concert.

demonstration of his artistry, before I

nique was a revelation, his tonal depth
Of Kreisler's or Schumann-Heink's,
or Hoffman's capabilities, we have no
doubts. Their reputation is establish-

ly uncomfortable stomach, a trip in
a dusty Pullman, some uninspiring
contemplations on life..... They all
have their effects. '
But pshaw, you either agree with a

criticism is sincere and woll writ-

many used the Alumni Memorial

we had to count with our fingers.
