On Friday night, January 7, Mr.
Will Rogers, dean of American com-
edians, will appear for one night in
Hill auditorium under the auspices
of the Michigan Theater league. This
is the .second appearance of Mr.
Roger's in Ann 4rbor, and is the first
event of importance in the dramatic
calendar after the holidays.
The Roger's technique is well
known. A lariat, some gum and a
rapid fire patter of remarks that have
convulsed Main street and Broadway
are the only accessories for the eve-
ning's entertainment. But he has
created an extraordinary public for
himself and a unique position on the

will leave this afternoon to present
"Front Page Stuff'" to the thousands
of alumni and friends of the Univer-
sity, who would not otherwise have
an opportunity to see their favorite
annual college opera. The public and
the alumni, when seeing the show, re-
ceive the spiritual adyertisement that
a college performance affords. But
few people sitting in tle audience
realize the sacrifice that the students,
singing and dancing before them, are
making in order that they might be
entertained and be possessed of a
finer feeling toward Michigan.
AWhen Christmas recess is about to
be realized, and the vast majority of
students are about to return home
for the rest and enjoyment that their
homes afford, these 100 students start
out on a 3,000 mile itinerary. They
spend their vacation in Pullman cars
and on stages. However, the benefits
and experiences of the trip compen-
sate them to some degree, but never
to the extent of substituting a vaca-
tion at home.
Let the alumni and students re-
alize what sacrifices the Opera com-
pany is making. Let us wish them
God speed on the longest and greatest
of opera trips.
A BANDIT MAY BE HURT
Commissioner Rutledge of the De-
troit police department has decided
that crime must stop, even if police
have to shoot the bandits. There is
no apparent reason for this drastic
step, it seems, except that there have
been 212 murders in Detroit this year.
Rutledge is very obviously inhu-
mane. It has long been a recognized
principle among Detroit policemen
that the bandit must be protected from
injury, and that to shoot was only a
very extreme measure to be used on
rare occasions. It may be that the
full consequences of the action are
not realized. Many of Detroit's best
bandits are likely to be shot down in
cold blood, thus seriously hindering
the Motor City's third industry of
banditry. The mortality rate is bound
to rise, and bandit insurance will be
refused, working inveterate hardship'
on the poor working-bandit just be-
The sudden revulsion in the policy'
of the Detroit police department,
though, is seriously very encouraging.
Less symnathy with the lawless ele-
sonal opinions. If they were not
present, I wish to remind them thatj
the write-up in The Daily was by a
student to fellow students. It would
hardly be in keeping with the aims
of the writer who wishes to stir un-
dergraduates from an apathetic,
routine life to include in the report I
conservative and considerate state-
ments of the President.
It is true that Dr. Little satirized
the present methods of education. He
apparently felt that nothing but a
word-cartoon could forcefully portray
to the students the weaknesses of the
present system. The report, however,
described the talk as heartless ridi-
cule. In heavy-type headlines. was*
written "Blame Professors" as though
the President were launching a per-
sonal attack against his faculty. TheI
article ,failed to mention that more
than once did Dr. Little stop to re-
mind the audience that the picture he
was drawing was an exaggeration; it
made no mention of the statement
that present professors are not re-
sponsible for their methods because
they are themselves the product of a
faulty system; also, it failed to make,
clear that the President not only
recognized the existence of members
on the faculty who do understand stu-
dents but with respect for them and
with faith in their .contributicn to a
system in which faculty and students
would have better understanding of
one another, he based one of his mainI
constructive points on faculty co-
operation ,the suggestion of institu-
ing small dormitory units with re-
Therefore, although I speak merely,
from hearing the talk and not from

again to state that to me President
Little's address at the Student Con-
ference was not the unbalanced ridi-
cule that was indicated by The Daily.;
I believe that the faculty have every
opportunity to prove that they are,
not sitting on stones of self-satisfac-!
tion by the road of progress, and thatI
contributions which they can make!
will be gratefully received by both

all, are still searching for solutions!

popular appeal of the movies-the
usual harangue on the movies, their,

innumerable attempts to pigeon hole
the problem, and without doubt was

theater for the past week, the Vita-

Big Parade" proved well-nigh as

more-although this is hardly to be

and value of some of these attractions
is rather astounding. And it means
but one thing; recognition of the
artistic and box-office value of the
movies by legitimate enterprises. It
has long been admitted that Holly-
wood has been offering greater op-
portunities than Broadway for the
