' Night Editor-STANFORD N. PHELPS
THE S. C. A.
Certain institutions, by their very
nature, perform fuinctions which areI
just beyond the scope of every other
organization-and still are necessary.
These same institutions, often times,
by the same nature, are beyond the
organized financial support which a
government could give them. These
institutions occupy the peculiar posi-
tion of being necessary and still de-
pandent upon voluntary support. Such
is the Stud ent Christian association
at this University.
Present moral standards at univer-
sities are on a sufficiently low level
so that any organization with the pur-
poses and ideals of real Christianity
can do little harm; and when the or-
ganization is live and vital, as the
Student Christian association is here,
its work ip multiplied in value many
times over.
The S. C. A. at Michigan has ac-
complished much, which speaks well
for the support that the students have
given it. It has one of the finest
buildings of any similar organization
at any school in the country, and
among its accomplishments are the
camp for freshmen before the opening
of school in the fall, which this year
introduced 65 men to college life; and
the securing of leading men in many{
fields to come to the city and spend
time with the students in their fra-
ternities and in private consultations.
Such work is certainly deserving of
support; and the student body is ask-
ed 'to contribute less than half of the
total budget for the year. The drive
for funds, which is in progress now,
s not compulsory, as is the student
support of the Union and the football
team; but it involves a duty, and a
very definite one.

say, is no reason.that the most promi-
nent parts of the paper should be7
given over to the tales of her doings.1
It seems timely that the functions1
of these two departments should be
explained lest the newsnapers be sub-
jected to the charge of being incon-
sistent and vacillating. Let it be un-I
derstood that the news columns sim-
ply reflect all of the things that are;
going on in the world. If huge spaces
are given to Queen Marie it means1
that large numbers of people have;
taken enough interest in the ovations]
accorded her to make the events un-
usual. If the balance between th6se
stories and more important news
stories is too small, it simply means
that that is the ratio of such events1
in the mind of the average American.
The editorial page, on the other
hand, reflects only what the editors
believe to be the representation of
all that is wise and good for the ad-
vancement of mankind. Set forth
there, fearlessly and straightforward-
ly, one will find the opinions of meni
versed in the art of intelligent criti-
cism, and possessing a large back-
ground of fact and experience. The
editorial page sets forth the things
that it thinks wise to believe and dotL
not the things that are being done.
The two departments are fulfilling
their duty perfectly. The news sheet
is filling its duty of being the recorder
of all that goes on in the world--the
editorial pages are carrying on the
spirit of sanity and discrimination.
The criticism should be directed not
at the papers that print the news, but
at the people of the United States who
make such news possible and demand
such publicity.
MORE SHIPS
The statement of Capt. J. K. Robin-
son before the United States shipping
board, which is now seeking "public
opinion" on the merchant marine
question, that the country should build
400,000 tons of shipping a year, is
quite surprising in view of aknowl-
edged conditions.
With the government still owning
a large fleet left from war-time con-
struction, the present problem does
not concern the existen~ce of ships
but their profitable operation under
private ownership. In fact, it is from
this viewpoint that the shipping
board is now carrying on its investi-
gation.
While naval officials are quite jus-
tified in desiing large auxiliary
forces ,they should not allow that
idea to pervert their testimony.
ZONING UPHELD
A decision of more than ordinary
significance to municipalities the
country over is that recently made
by the Supreme court upholding
their right to enforce the zoning of:
business and residence property.
Limiting the business districts and
segregating residence property is
held by the court to be similar to
the regulation of traffic, as increas-
ing the security of home life, aiding
in the prevention of accidents, de-
creasing noise and other conditions
tending to produce or intensify nerv-
ous disorders. The ruling is based
upon the "police power," asserted for
public welfare.
While a few may contend that zon-
ing robs a citizen of two constitutional
rights, that it deprives a person of
liberty and property without due pro-
cess of law or denies him equal pro-
tection under the law, the practical
necessity of the measure can be read-
ily appreciated. As the court points
out in its opinion, fundamental con-
stitutional rights are never denied but

their application changes with chang-
ing conditions of modern life, and
regulations which would have beenj
considered arbitrary and oppressive
a century ago are acceptable today.
The court has undoubtedly set a sound
precedent. The right of a community
to regulate its own welfare ought
never be abridged.
In the "exceedingly baa crime sit-
uation" which has enveloped American
life, the Pittsburgh judge who scored
a jury for weakly acquitting a mur-
derer and a crook and the South Dar
kota court which completed a homo-
cide case in 24 hours, deserve Dothf
commendation and emulation.

have acted as "disorderly" as the
Michigan men did Sunday night. The
team was returning victorious from
the last game of the year. Few stu-
dents were able to go to Minneapolis,
and the Michigan Daily, among other
organs of campus opinion, urged that
Benny Friedman and his gang be met.
And they were met,-by a cheering,
singing mob of students. Then heaven-
ly horrors-the mob actually tried in
their misdirected exhuberance to rush
a theater. This attempt was effective-
ly frustrated by the use of tear gas,
under the direction of the Ann Arbor
police squad.
It would seem to the average ob-
server that Mr. Butterfield's theaters
have been patronized by the students
at large sufficiently to warrant his
opening the Arcade to them free of
charge upon such an occasion. After
all a college town is different from a
large city and the theater owner
should realize that at the moment of
the rush, the thrill of victory and not
not the spirit of destruction was in the
breast of all who attempted to force
an entrance.
The entire incident as contrasted
with the celebration shows the nar-
rowness of college life here. Perhaps
the team should have been met by a
sedate body of young people, perfectly
controlling their feelings, but who
would wish such an attitude. We are
tempted to agree with the Toasted
Rolls column that a stronger tear gas
should be issued to the student body.
After all we aren't such a destroy-
ing howling mob as the Daily would
show, and there is no reason to be
ashamed of such natural reactions as
were in evidence Sunday night. They
were natural and harmless-and let
us hope that in future similar occa-
sions Mr. Butterfield retain his dis-
pbsition-and the Michigan Daily its
sense of humor.
-H. B. L., '27.
CRITICAL REPORTERS
To The Editor: I
Recent years on the campus have
seen a considerable amount of con-
tention between the student critics
and their dissenters. It might have
been hoped that with th passing of
the class of 1926 there would be a
conclusion to this sort of behavior,
but so long as student publications
permit reporters with rather limited
knowledge and quite unlimited ar-
rogance to govern the columns of cri-
ticism, we may hardly hope for har-
mony.
I do not pose asran art critic, but
after reading the report of the local
art exhibition in Chimes, I do not
feel even slightly presumptuous in
expressing an opinion upon this sub-
ject. The critic seems to be badly in
formed. He spoke at great length of
"pastels"-pictures many of which are
rendered in oil; he found reason to
disagree with the expression which
Mrs. Johnson has registered in her
own face, although Mrs. Johnson an
I artist of ability, is undoubtedly better
acquainted with her own features
than any amateur critic is. The re-
porter has lamented the fact that lo-
cal artists have not rendered their
models with round heads-how sad
and how startling! A physiological
discoery!I am certain that the per-
son with a totally round head would
in himself be an object worth exhibit-
ing; an anatomist might be more than
interested in the phenomenon which
our critic seems to have observed. He
was unable, as well, to differentiate
between badly drawn arms and fore-
shortened arms. Apparently, the
critic was blind to much of the ex-
hibition; but, considering the general
tone of the criticism, perhaps it is

wisest to congratulate the unmention-
ed artists upon having escaped the
blundering observations of this fledg-
ling critic.
In all, it seems that the "painter"
who is not an "artist" has far more
vindication for his efforts than the
reporter who is not a critic. After
all, the minor "painters" may be the
master "artists" of the future, and
none can tell what the reporter will
be.
Writers of art criticisms in campus
publications have formerly satisfied
themselves with articles merely list-
ing the works, making no mention of
technique or theory; it was an excel-
lent method; it made no pretentions,
displayed no ignorance. Reticence, is
by far, preferable to absurdity.
--L. R. Brown.
NOT LIBERAL
To The Editor:
After having seen a very liberal
policy pursued by all editorials in
The Daily for so long, I was surprised
and somewhat disappointed the other
day to see your editorial "The En-
lightened Age." That "institutions
such as the House of David have no
excuse for existence" may or may
not be true; I certainly am not here
to defend them. But some people
think the same way as this about the
Church, in i -eneral. others naut:n- r

Ever since its inception 1\limes has
been confronted with the problem olf
present ng the "opera; different;" each
year patrons Iamor for new material
in plot, lines, music and effects. And
while there must be a definite local
appeal, at the same time the show
must compare with big time musical
comedy when presented in New York,
Chicago, Washington and Philadelphia
--the circuit where a production has
to definitely have a reputation and
good reviews to back it.
"Front Page Stuff" contains again
the same appeal that has given Mimes
one of the most enviable reputations
among amateur shows. And for the
first time in the listory of the organi-
zation there has been no attempt to
go back to Methuselah for sufficient
romance to cover up masculine bassos
and husky shoulders.

William ill. Lew s Jr.
Who plays the leading feminine role
in "Front Page Stuff."
After having plumbed the possibili-
ties of Holland, China and Slavonia
for local color, the most apt situation
that has been scorned for years has
been chosen; a genial satire of a pro-
fessor's family-familiar ground, but
the happiest medium a college show
might have.
There is no attempt to spring co-
ed jokes; the professor is not the
stereotyped pedagogue who has been
overdone in every college show in the
country. But unconsciously the
emphasis leads to the juveniles. The
professor's daughter who sings and
dances in an astounding way; his sec-
retary who helps make the wheels go
round; a lovesick poet who is pos-
sessed of pleasing baritone voice; the
golfing son with light comedy possi-
bilities.
Of course -some of the old tricks
creel) in. There is a¬ęSwedish count-
ess straight from Minneapolis who
clowns around with the fake Italian
baron. But the comedy is new, the
lines have humorous 'possibilities.
At present the outlines of the first
act iadicate a. good opening. (As usual
the second contains all the effects.)
In one week the show goes to the
Whitney, and more definite predilec-
tions can be made.

THE FA(''ULT (OV'NCERT
Including a sextet of Ann Arbor
musicians and two famous Polish
singers, the fourth faculty concert
will be given at 4:15 o'clock Sundayj
afternoon in Hill aduitorium.
Madame Karola Zago:ska, soprano,
is touring this country after having
previously studied and sung abroad.
Madame recently made her Detroit de-
but, and also attracted attention in a
Chicago concert. Having been school-
ed in the continental tradition
Madame Zagorskh presents her lro-
grain in the conventional six lan-1
guages; versatility at least isj
promised................ ......
Stanislaus Wysztyvki, tenor, and al-
though only temporarily in this coun-
try is achieving success in the cities
where he has sung. 1Is riginal suc-
cess was in Italian opera (which is
the proper place for any tenor to
score!) and he is said to possess
"charming intensity and dramatic
f fervor." Both singers will be ac-j
companied by Mrs. George B. Rhead

SEEMING INCONSISTENCY
Queen Marie has indeed been the
subject of much publicity. Her most
minute acts and traits have been re-
corded from day to day in the great
gazetters of the time, the daily news-
papers. The celebrations and ovations
accorded her have been the feature of
column upon column of recording and
explaining. Her clothes have been
described in the smallest detail and
women reporters have tried to catchl
and interpret the spirit of woman-
hood that this woman expresses. All
