transport guard against the opposition
shown in Berlin, rather than see the
League's efforts fail.
As he remarked in making the con-
cession, he was more a "League man
than a German." It is this spirit
which European diplomacy needs to
guide it through the crises and diffi-
culties which will continue to occur in
its international affairs.
Full justification for the presence
of foreign troops in the foreign set-
tlements of Shanghai has been given
by the recent attempt of 500 Shang-
tungese troops to enter that part of
the city. While the native soldiers
might not have molested the property
of citizens in the settlement, a suc-
cessful entrance might have soon en-
couraged more severe action, partic-
ularly if the city falls to the Can-
tonese army.
As a result of the incident which
was soon brought to a close by the
presence and tact of British officers
and men, the foreign colony has or-
ganized for both rapid evacuation and
for united self protection. It has
been wisely realized that the Chinese
fighting to control the city, will have
little regard for the rights of foreign-
ers in a crisis, and that the best pro-
tection for the foreigners lies with
their own troops, and their own or-

The recent action of the Senate
'Commitkee on Student Affairs in ap-
pointing a committee to investigate
the external features of fraternity

initiation's is indeed worthy of com-
iendation. 1she matter is one which
the Interfraternity Council could well
have taken u1pon itself in its efforts to
find justifiable reasons for existence,
and the Senate committee did wisely
in waiting no longer for the proper
organization to act.
It is a recognized fact that the older
fraternities on the campus seldom, if.
ever, conduct their initiations in any
manner whilch is objectionable. In
fact, if there are any phases of the
less serious features staged outside
of the fraternity house, they are
handled in such a way as to be prac-
tically unnoticeable to any one not in
the immediate group concerned.
There are still a few houses here,
however, which, intentionally or not,
draw the attention of the general
public to certain parts of the external
program. Such high school antics as
compelling a neophyte to parade
through the streets in a barrel, or to
freely accost women students on the
street with an absurd or humiliating
question, have long been regarded as
an indication of exceedingly poor taste
on the part of any fraternity.
It is the fraternity which falls in
the latter category whose initiation
will be investigated by the committee
with a view to bringing about a change
in such conditions. Fortunately, this
group constitutes but a small minority
of the local and national fraternities
in Ann Arbor. May the new commit-
tee lose no time in performing a need-
ed function!
After eight years of occupation, the
French troops in the Saar valley
will soon be withdrawn as a result of
the agreement reached between France
and Germany in the recent meeting of
the council of the League of Nations.
A small force of 800 men will be left
behind as a special transport guard
to cope with any labor difficulties.
This settlement obtained by a last
minute compromise in the session of
the council is another sign that the
Versailles treaty; which provided a
slower evacuation of the Saar dis-

Beginning today the whole course
of future world disarmament pro-
grams will be affected by the delibera-
tions going on at Geneva under au-
spices of the League of Nations. The
conference which begins today, at-
tended by an American delegation, is
faced by several handicaps to success,
but the parley, which will undoubted-
ly continue through April, may see
considerable accomplished toward the
goal of world disarmament.
The greatest difficulty to be sur-
mounted by the conferees is that of
securing a resumption of relations be-
tween the Soviet Arnd Switzerland.
It is now thought that this can be
brought about in the immediate future
by suitable negotiations, though the
old animosity in Russia due to the
murder of their delegate at Geneva
still runs high. Switzerland, realizing
the importance of the resumption of
relations, may yield considerably to-
ward accepting the punitive measures
demanded following the slaying. An-
other difficulty of little less import-
ance is the reconciling of French and
American views of disarmament, but
1this last is not as urgent as the first.
The key to immediate success lies
I to considerable extent in the hands
of the Soviet. If Switzerland and
Russian can be induced to patch up
their differences, an obstacle to the
more immediate business of the par-
ley will be removed. But judging by
past events, there is no way of pre-
dicting just what the Soviet will do
in the matter.
The test that is soon to be made on
this campus by the First National
Productions corporation cooperating
with College Humor in a sincere at-
tempt to find young college men will-
ing to enter the movies and take there-
from the fame and the fortune that
are the results of success, marks an-
other step forward in the realization
that college men have something to
give to business and that business
must therefore enter the bidding for
the services of college men.
The attempt sounds sincere. It has
none of the glamour of the "Beauty
contest" publicity and none of the
balderdash that promises a rapid rise
to fame and fortune. It simply states
itself as aiming as assimilate college
men into a business that carries re-
wards for head work and personality.
The result is an opportunity for the
college man and an opportunity for
the corporation. College men and
business must work together in every
endeavor. And this is the movies' at-
tempt to cooperate.
Evidently President Calles of Mex-
ico does not agree with those mis-
guided individuals in his country who
would boycott United States products,
judging from his suspension of the
import duty in the 60,000 tns of
wheat necessary to meet the Meican
crop shortage. President Calles takes
the sensible stand that if Mexico does
not feed itself economically the thing
to do is to buy food elsewhere, at
least for the present. Most of this
wheat necessary to meet the Mexican
shortage will come from the United
The would-be boycotters do not
seem to realize that no matter how
great their dislike for this country
may be. it would be utter folly on

A Review, by Simple Sion..
"Getting Getrie's Garter" was ush-
ered into Ann Arbor midst an aroma
of stench-bomb and pungent perfume,
which vied with each other for "su-
premacy of the air" between perform-
ances at the Arcade Sunday night.
Keen observers sense a disarmament
conference with a view to curbing the
diabombical instincts of the fetid1
forces gathered under the banner of'
"The King's Stenchmen."
Frequenters of the Arcade are no
longer deploring the lack of an act,
parallel to the performance at the
Majestic. Butterfield's latest "olfac-
tory offering" was acclaimed by all
within the vicinity. It has not been
determined whether an instrument,
similar to the "Clavilux" would achieve
more delicate effects than the present
practice of wafting at random. In
order that this performance may be
watched with impunity the manage-
ment has agreed to supply gas masks
with each ticket.

We have waited for a long time for
some return from this job of ours,
and at last we got it-in the shape of
a free banquet at the Union, thrown
by the Board in Control of Publica-
tions for The Daily editorial staff. It
was a great affair and lots of new ideas
were brought up for discussion, but
we didn't like the dessert.

All there was was a scoop of ice
cream and a cookie. In other words
it was just an ice cream cone broken
up into its component parts.
* *-*
Various speakers asked for assist-
ants for the different departments
such as sports, women's, Music and
Drama, End then the Managing Ed-
itor pulled a fast one on us. He said
he hoped the thing wouldn't go so
far that Rolls would be asking for
an assistant, because 'what a sight it
would be to have a bunch of little'
Hays running around the office."
-* * *
Well, all we gotta say is that if the
M. E. thinks we wouldn't pick betteri
looking assistants than imitations of1
ourselves as our co-workers, he is
sadly mis-informed as to our aesthe-
tic taste.I

boys lined up at the candy counter in
the lobby and ate dessert.1

The regular monthly meeting of the
Matinee Musicale which was to have
been held Wednesday afternoon,
March 16, will be omitted. The next
meeting, which will be held on Wed-
nesday, April 20, in the Assembly hall
of the Union, will include the annual
business meeting. Preceding this
meeting, promptly at 3 o'clock, Mrs.
Maude Okkelburg, of the piano faculty
of the School of Music, will present a
program of Liszt.

For the enthusiastic approval of
local patrons, the Chicago Civic Opera
Company will pause in its annual
peregrination to favor Detroit with
four performances: a matinee of Puc-
cini's "Tosca" bn Saturday, March 19;
the Wolf-Ferrari "Je~wels of the Ma-
donna" in the evening; Verdi's "Aida"
on Sunday evening; and on Monday
the novelty of the engagement--Mary
Garden in "The Resurrection." This
is of unusual interest to music lovers
in any radius-the oasis in the other-
wise barren field of operatic achieve-
ment. Moreover the organization is
practically intact-principals, corps
de ballet, chorus, and stage crew.
The operas selected have been care-
fully chosen to present a varied pro-
gram of a wide appeal. "Tosca" has
been popular in opera since its pre-
mier in 1900. The Puccini score con-
tains several arias which are usually
included in the repertoire of concert
artists, and the liberetto, based on a
Sardou play is dramatically effectiv.
"Tosca" has been played by nearly all
the truly great dramatic sopranos;
Claudio Muzio has been singing this
role with singular success this sea-
son, and with Charles Hackett as Ca-
varadossi and Cesare Fromichi as the
Baron Scarpia, will head the cast.
"The Jewels of the Madonna" is a
more recent work, having been first
sung in Berlin in 1911. The part of
Maliella -(which will be given by Rosa
Rasia) cirries unusual possibilities,
and as usual molds the tragic tri-
angle of all good opera into spectac-
ular lines. Antonio Cortia, whom we
haven't heard so much about lately,
will sing the tenor role, that of Gen-
naro, and Giacomo Rimini, who usual-
ly does the Civic's Iago in "Othello,"
and who is one of the old-timers of
the company, will do Rafaele. Both
Raisa and Rimini were selected by
Toscanini for the world's premier of
Puccini's posthumous "Turandot"
when it was presented last April at
La Scala, and the combination is just-
ly famous.
Sunday night the ancient and pop-
ular "Aida" will be given. It has been
said that this is the only opera that
is "singer-proof-to borrow the term
from the drama. However, taking no
chances, the cast has again been
bolstered with Raisa in the name part,
with Cyrena Van Gordon, a mezzo,
as Amneris and Charles Marshall as

On Monday evening the really trick I
performance wyill be given. Mary Gar-
den appearing in "The Resurrection"
her one triumph of last year. The
opera is a version of the Tolstoi novel
set to the score of Franco Alfano. It
is twenty-five years old in Europe but
was given for an American premier
last New Year's Eve, and, proving
more than acceptable both musically
and dramatically-La Garden being
up to her old tricks-it has been in
the repertory ever since. Garden has
more recently created a comparative
sensation in Honneger's "Judith" for
another American premier. Augusta
Lenska, an old May Festival favorite
who did notable work in the world's
premier of Cadman's "The Witch of
Salem" this season will also appear
