radical in the appointment of men to
fill political positions. Professor
Young is one of the leading authori-
ties in the state on questions pertain-
ing to conservation. He has spent
seventeen years in the study of con-
servation and most of them have been
spent in this state, trying to solve the
problem of the rapidly vanishing na-
tural resources of the state. He is
decidedly not a politician and unde-
niable an authority in his chosen field.
In contrast to the policy of appoint-
ing to office men suited for and ac-
quainted with the problems with
which they are to deal one has only
to look to Young's predecessor, John
Baird. Baird brought to the office
little or no knowledge of conservation1
and his acts during the period of his
regime showed a dictatorial policy
that had much to do with politics and
very little to do with practical con-
One hopes, although it is yet too
early to forecast, that this marks a
new change in political practice in the
state. Of course, the political parties
will howl since many of the loyal
henchmen will have to be janitors in-
stead of department heads. But one,
unless he happens to be one of these,j
can readily see the good sense and the,
advantage of appointing) to office men
skilled in the work with which the
department is to deal. Who knows
but that Michigan may be the state
to start the drive for efficiency in
politics? It would be a strange de-
parture and a welcome one.

A Review, by Philip C. Brooks.
"Don Giovanni" as presented at the
gala performance New Year's eve, was
a most interesting and pleasing spec-'
tacle--novel in setting, but still pos-
I sessing ample musical beauty. Un-
der the direction of Charles Moor,
who came to the company as stage
director this year, the scenery was ar-
ranged with the purpose of conveying
"complementary impressions to the
mind simultaneously through eye and
ear," and of "presenting Mozart's
masterpiece in the most harmonious

use of three spotlights at different an-

to call the show the "Mozart Follies."

from brilliant to sombre, from red to

They say that opera is not high art
because it is a hybrid. This one was,
but the accusation that it was not high
art would not seem just.
This was a revival of 'Don Giovan-
ni" after a ten years' lapse. The cast
is large, and in this case was a splen-
did combination. Those who were
most pleasing, due to their usual pure
sand exquisite voices, were Edith Ma-
son and Tito Schipa. Four others de-
serve commendation for their acting,
and their singing was not below
standard by any means.

A Review, by Vincent Wall.
I Almost any word of three or more
syllables would be suitable for this
show. It is designed in Garagantuan
proportions; and it is evident that
Gene Buck is still an earnest disciple
of Mr. Ziegfield.
In fact, the first commending note
is for the costuming and scenery. I
have never seen a musical comedy
with more elaborate sets, and the
prodigal costuming of both the
choruses and principals was astound-
ing. As for the rest of the produc-
tion, it is more or less an anomally.
There are bits that are extremely
clever, but at the same time the action
occasionally drops to an uninteresting
mediocrity. The plot itself is worthy
of little note, and is hardly of the
necessary strength to please the
Broadway which has "O, Kay" and .
"The Desert Song" for its seasonal
entertainment. The music was well
plugged-one remembers "Somebody,
Else" and "Look at the World and
Smile," but it has little to offer in
melody, rhythm, and lyrics.
Leon Errol is in his usual role, al-
though his comedy is rather a repi-
tition of "Sally" and "Louis the
Fourteenth." Marion Harris has the
same soprano that has made her the
most popular vaudeville singer in the
country; but the role of Mary would
make any leading lady leave town.
Her lines all play to Mr. Errol's
laughs, and as the Little Sunshine of
Limehouse, her part is ridiculous. In
fact,. Ina Williams as Scats, the girl!
in love with Truly, rather runs away I
with things. Her comedy dancing and
clowning with Mr. Errol brings the
most laughs in the show.
The rest of the dancing is rather
negative for a production of thge am-
bitious stature presented by Mr. Buck.

zation requires slaves.
The Greeks were quite
right there. Unless there
are shves to do the ugly,
horrible, uninteresting

slavery is wrong, inse-
