Opposed to turning them loose to
shift for themselves, President Cool
idge is now favorable to giving the
Philippines a new deal whereby they
will be granted virtually complete
autonomy and eventual independence.
He will have introduced into the
present session of Congress bills
which would carry out his plans.
The President wishes to settle the
Philippine problem as soon as pos
sible, to establish a satisfactory re-
lationship between the islands and the
United States, to restore native co-
operation in the present government,
and to develop the vast natural re-
sources, especially rubber, for the
benefit of the Filipinos themselves.
The first move will be made next week
when the President will transmit to
Congress the report of Col. Carm
Thompson, .recently returned from a
study of Philippine administrative
The problem of governing the
islands has long been a complex one
since so many factors are involved.
Obviously the granting of immediate
independence would be unwise. If
greater autonomy is yielded them now
it should help largely to do away with
the present uncooperative attitude.
A progressive policy of extending
eventually complete independence, as
advocated by the Prsident, is the
most practical and sensible solution
of the perplexing problem.
ln requesting its preparatory dis-
armament commission to make ar-
rangements for an international con-
ference on the arms limitation ques-
tion, probably in 1928, the council of
the- League of Nations adopted the
policy of "making haste slowly." In
official circles, this was regarded as
warning to Americans who are in-
tensely interested in the reduction of
armament burdens.
In reality, however ,the expression
is little more than justification for the
delays which were countenanced and
furthered in the preliminary meeting
by several European nations. The re-
sults which were admittedly secured
in the studies at Geneva during the
summer were due mainly to the
initiative of the American delegates
unofficially present.
It is entirely proper that all ar-
rangements necessary for the suc-
cess of the international conference
be made, regardless of the time con-
sumed. Such arrangements will be
I futile, however, if the delegates do
not exhibit a progressive and co-
operative desire to actually reduce
When Congress assemblied for its
short session now meeting, its mem-
bership did not inc"hde 8 Senators
and more than 30 Representatives who
were commissioned by the people at
the last election as their legislative
representatives. In their places were
an equal number of men who have
been repudiated by the people as their
legislative representatives. By con-
stitutional provision, Senators and
Representatives do not take office un-
til 13 months after they have been
elected. For the Representatives, this
means that when they meet in their
first session, just 11 ;months remain
before the next election.
A constitutional amendment to rem-
edy this situation has been proposed
by Senator Norris. According to its
provisions, congressmen would take
office two months after election, and
Congress would meet in January with

no definite date for adjournment, thus
eliminating the troublesome short ses-
sion. While the recent threat of Sen-
ator Norris to filibuster the present
session if his measure was not con-
sidered, it is quite desirable that the
proposal secure favorable considera-
tion from Congress as soon as pos-
It might be good legislative prac-
tice for Representative Haugen to

tion fee in his farm relief plan, but it
would not be good politics.

One unexploited argument in favor
of the curtailment of population would

Concert in H11 auditorium at 4:15
Symphony Orchestra, under the baton
of Ossip Gabrilowitsch In Hill audI-
torium, at 8 o'clock.
A Review from Behind the CurtainI

Having finished a run of six per-
formances in Ann Arbor, "Front Page
Stuff" is ready to lie comfortably back
and allow student opinion to simmer,
seethe and settle into a convenient
mold. The reviews, as were the audi-
ences, were anomalous, ranging from
the exuberant enthusiasm of Monday
and Wednesday nights to the aloof
apathy of Friday night and the Satur-
day matinee. In fact, a final analysis
must come from those most intimately
connected with the show behind the
Performances may vary, but the
lines and numbers that definitely click
-to fall into the argot of the profes-
sion!-are usually known in the wings.
Of course the numbers that were
scheduled to be featured when the
show was rehearsing in Mimes became
cumbersome at the Whitney; and some
(particularly the ballet and the trio)
which seemed to be ugly ducklings and
white elephants underwent a pleasing
metamorphosis. Still credit usually
falls where credit is due.
The final panejyrics will, of course,
eternally go to Lewis-and for more
than one reason. To the audience his
outstanding merits may be fingers and
toes that combine to make him the
most versatile feminine lead the opera
has ever had. But there is an addi-
tional significance to cast and chorus.
It is seldom that a leading lady conde-
scends to train and originate routines
for the choruses; but that, combined
with a total absence of the tempera-
ment of the star, and a generous as-
sistance in putting other numbers
over is even more unusual.
Elsewhere the praise is more or less
evenly distributed. The countess-240
pounds of Swedish majesty-is the
first genuine humor the opera has had
in years; and this combined with an
intelligent plot are responsible for
the unusually sympathetic criticism.
Otherwise there are sevral exceptional
voices, a baron-butler, a poet, and the
leading man, who makes up for his lack
of grace with every trick known to
musical comedy. And the chorus
dancing is, they say, the best ever.
The unusual hopping exit of the mixed
chorus in the opening of the second
act and the combined comedy and ex-
ceptional technique of the Dougall in
the dance eccentric, are perhaps the
best examples.

Although the United States, in com-
pany with, 12 other world powers has
drafted a plan whereby extraterri-f
torial rights in China will be sur-
rendered as soon as foreign citizens
and their property may be safely left,
under the jurisdiction of the Chinese
police and legal systems, agitation for
the immediate and complete surrender
of these privileges is being continued.
In a recent address, Dr. Sao-ke Alfred
Sze, Chinese minister to the United
States, urged that this country abolish
these treaties even if other countries
do not end them.
It is undoubtedly true, as he stated,
that such pacts are a heavy burden on
China, and that progress has been
hampered by the special privileges'
held by other nations. Immediate
withdrawal by the United States, how-
ever, would imperil the lives of its
citizens in China, and would endanger
their property. Their protection from j
possibile uprisings should be as much
concern to the representative of the
Chinese government as it is to ours,
for trepasses against American citi-
zens might be quite unfortunate for
the present comity between the two
As propaganda supporting the
adoption of the recent Strawn report
for the gradual withdrawal of extra-
territorial rights, the speech of the
Chinese minister might be effective.j
As material for a foreign policy of the
United States, however, it is entirely
too extreme.
Comparison between the English
and American legal systems has re-
vealed that court action in this coun-
try is relatively slow and complicated.
Its delays have been blamed for the
over crowded condition of the jails
and cited as a contributing factor to
the prevalence of crime.
Under such conditions, it is quite
inspiring to notice that Detroit judges,.
lead by Judge Harry B. Keidan of the
recorder's court, are earnestly at-I
tempting to expedite justice by "over-i
time" sessions, and by requesting
court reporters to prepare transcripts
to testimony in two days instead of
the usual two weeks or longer. Such

The "Gesu Bambino," by the Italian-
American organist, Yon, has enjoyed
great popularity not only in its origi-
nal form, for organ, but also in the
violin and vocal settings. It is a
Christmas picture, pastoral in mood,
and making use of that part of the fa-
miliar "Adeste Fideles."
