Tonight University men will vote
upon the proposed Union constitution-
al amendment regarding life member-
ships. It is difficult to see how men
with the best wishes of the University
at heart can fail to attend the meet-
ing or vote favorably on a sensible
and fair solution of the problem of
Union life merberships. A plan which
will eliminate the annual Union drive
ought to be supported personally by
every Michigan man.
Someone has shot somebody! The
unusual event has electrified the na-
tion. Machines are clicking and
presses rolling and columns and col-
umns on the important event are being
reeled off with dizzy speed and dis-
tributed to the breathless public un-
der flaring headlines.

There have been 5,000,00 words writ-
ten in eleven days on the case, for the
public press. Some idea of the im-
mense amount this denotes may be
gained from the fact that if these
words were laid end to end, printed'
in newspaper type, they would reach
about 240 miles. A person could walk
from here almost to Chicago reading
about the Hall-Mills trial all the way
in a continuous line. If set in a col-
umn the words would run about twen-
ty miles, or about 5,000 full newspaper
columns without an intervening head.
These columns, set in a newspaper,
would completely fill 650 pages, with-#
out advertisements or headlines in be-
This is the sense of proportion thatI
the American newspaper has. This is1
the amount of space that the press
will fill in eleven days about an event

When the cost of war is reckonedr
and the final balance reached, thereg
are only two things counted as a

Reports of the "service of toler-
ance" held in Port Huron in which a
flag pole presented by a Jew to a
Methodist church ,was dedicated by a'
priest and in which a flag wat donated
by the Ku Klux Klan come with
pleasant and relieving contrast to ac-;
counts of disputes, strikes, murders,
and gang warfare.
Disappearance of all opposition to;
this unique service, at first demon-
strated in open threats, before the co-
operative efforts of every stratum of
soc-ety is exemplary of the possibili-
ties of human understanding and tol-
erance. Application of these princi-
ples in the consideration of our dis-
putes and disagreements instead of
prejudice and a narrowminded sense
of proof would greatly increase com-
ity between nations and individuals
As a newly elected and politically
sagacious senator from a strongly
agricultural state, Senator Brookhart
acted very naturally in confining his
first post-election stateinent to ,the
necessity of farm relief and especially
in providing natural publicity for his
utterance by advocating consideration
of the farm relief measure at a- special
session of Congress to be called next
With the Republican administration
now fully awakened to the serious de-
mands of the Middle Western states,
however, there is little doubt that the
coming winter session will adjourn
without having given much attention
to this question. In view of the Pres-
ident's recent move in the income tax
situation, which forestalled the in-
tended fight of the Democrats for tax
reduction, this action of the Iowa sen-
ator may prove an added incentive in
this direction.
Not since the. administration of
President James K. Polk has there

The Oh' State campus is spread
out like an opposing team getting
ready for one of those Benny to Ben-

edge of this runs a road, so that the

To The Editor:
During the past week I have watch-
ed with increasing interest and
amusement the efforts of one of the
Daily's editors to deride and belittle
Fascism and Mussolini. First, there
was the statement that Mussolini had
taken over the seventh portfolio, that
the Italian people were not support-
ing this "usurpation," and that in all
probability the "tyrant" would soon be
overthrown, since he is not even back-
ed by his own people. This assertion
is obviously absurd, since as pre-
mier he could not have obtained the
necessary majority in parliament if
the representatives of the people had
not approved of his policy. The Fas-
cist party is composed of all male
Italians with the exception of a few
radicals and other undesirable ele-
ments that exist in every country.
Then in Friday's Daily appears the
statement that "the basic principle of
Fascism seems to be suppression and
deceit." Saturday's editorial, con-
demning the Italian policy of expan-
sion, announced that "Mussolini has
been forced to gag the press, suppress
propaganda against himself, take over
the seventh of his cabinet offices him-
self in order to have complete control
of Italy, and face an uncovered in-
trigue which has ruined his hitherto.
poor reputation in France." As a
matter of fact, Mussolini has not been
"forced" to do anything-he isn't the
type that is easily coerced, as the in-
sidiously plotting Freemasons found
out to their own cost. If he sup-
pressed the lingering vestiges of de-
cadent democracy and unified the gov-
ernment by putting down treason and
revolt, that is to his credit. If he has
taken a vigorous stand against schem-
ing French diplomacy and the un-
bounded ambitions of the sons of Mo-
hammed in the Near East, that like-
wise is'to his credit.
The real question is not merely the
suppression of treasonable opposition
and censorship of a verbose press:
rather it has to do with the abolition
of the vague, deceiving shibboleth of
democracy, the establishment of effi-
ciency through centralized govern-
ment, and the natural expansion of a
great race. All these things Mussolini
is accomplishing.
Those who speak of him as a
"tyrant" or a "mad dictator" do but
display their own Lilliputian stature.
It is easy enough to criticize those in
power and to tell how something
should be done :doing that something i

graduates this note taken from a re-
cent number of The Music News from
Chicago proves of interest:
"The phenomenon of the season oc-
curred last Tuesday evening in Kim-
ball hall, when Barre Hill, the excel-
lent young baritone, appeared in hs
first Chicago recital and attracted a
capacity audience....HIlls main work
was Schumann's "Dichterlicbe" and
in this he signally distinguished him-
self. It is the task of a musical giant
and needs must have back of it a rare
personality.... musical feeling and
dramatic emotionalism. Mr. Hill sup-
plied all these in a wholly satisfactory
degree, singing every number with a
fine appreciation of content, inter-
preting the various moods adroitly
and holding unwavering attention
through the sheer force of musical
beauty coupled with perfect tech-
This enthusiastic review is an echo
to the praise accorded the rendition oQ
the "Dichterliebe" when Barre-Hiil
presented the American premiere of
this Schumann cycle last spring in his
graduation recital.
A review by Maxine Shinkmai
For those who enjoy well-trained
dancing choruses,-and what species
of individuals do not?-there is "Cast-
les in the Aft" as it is being pre-
sented at the Schubert-Lafayette the-
ater in Detroit. There is the some-
what stereotyped humor of the mu-
sical comedy, and the seasoned play-
goer will probably check out at times,
as, for example, when Monty Blair
drinksta cocktail, following it with
the trite bit: "Ab, two mrore of thos
and I'll go bear-hunting with a fly-
swatter." The management assures
us, however, that "Canada Dry Gin-
ger Ale is used in this production!"
The musical score is good,-I
should probably have said excellent
had I not heard it on the sae day

"Lantern of Love" theme which

The first and third acts are laid in
fashionable Westchester, but the sec-
ond act attempts to get away from
the more beaten path of musical com-
edy and takes us to the far-off land of
Latavia, which gives the play ro-
mantic color. The Latavian Folk
Song opens the act and has enough
dash to put us in an excellent spirit

to follow. Tige ohly grossly discord-
ent note in the act is struck with the
entrance of the Queen in the finale.
