Lockwooil,- Mis Northrup, Hamilton
And String Quartet Present
Musical Program
Former President James Burrell
Angell, in bringing to the University
Dr. Albert A. Stanley, who served as
professor of music from 1888 until his
retirement in '1921, lead to the desig-
nation of Ann Arbor as the "Bayreuth
of America" more than any one other
thing, is the opinion of Earl V. Moore,
'12, director of the School of Music,
as he expressed it in his talk given
on the Michigan Nigh't Radio program
broadcast last night through station
WWJ. The. broadcasting, entirely by
members of the faculty School of Mu-
sic, was in the nature of a special
Beethoven Centenary program..
"Whatever claim this mid-western
university community may have to this
designation is due in a large measure
to the ideals, the untiring zeal and in-
fluence of Dr. Stanley," it was explain-
ed. When he was brought to Mich-
igan he was+ a young musician from
Providence, R. I., whose training had
been acquired during a four-year res-
idence in European musical centers.
'During Dr. Stanley's period of ser-
vice, and under his leadership, music
in the University developed in various
ways and on such a solid artistic foun-
dation that with the cumulative effect
of the passing .years the musical
spirit developed here attracted nation-
al attention and called forth, from
more than one distinguished musician,
the epithet "Bayreuth of America".
Society Formed in 1880's
In order to balance the musical ed-
ucational program here, explained Mr.
Moore, the theoretical work was sup-
plemented by the organization of the
University Musical society in the
1880's. It was incorporated, and since
its establishment musical activities
have functioned under it without much
change to its original provisions. It
had as its aim, according to the speak-
er, to maintain of a school of music
wherein instruction in practical mu-
sic, by a faculty of 30 members, should
be give that would compare favor-
ably with the instruction offered by
the University in other lines; to main-
tain a Choral Union for the pur-
pose of presenting choral work in
public and also to provide a concert
series in whic the greatest artists
and organizations should be heard;
and lastly to maintain a symphony
orchestra for the training of orchestra
players and the giving of symphonic
The present concert season is. the
48th consecutive series, and the fes-
tival which will be given in May is
the 34th consecutive annual May fes-
tival, Mr. Moore continued. He fur-
ther pointed out that only two other
festival associations in the country
hold a longer record, and that one
of these has had several interrup-
tions in its continuity.,
Give As Flash Talk
The talk of Mr. Moore was given in
the nature of flash talks between an-
nouncer and speaker.
P;e program was opened by the
"First Movement from the piano son-

ata rOp. 31, number 2, D. minor" by
Albert Lockwood, head of the piano-
forte 'department of the school. He
was followed by Miss Eunice North-
rup singing two Beethoven songs "Bit-
ten" and "Bussleid". Miss Northrup is
a graduate of the School of Music, and
has studied voice under Herbert With-
erspoon and Theodore Harrison.

Kaiser, viola, and Janette Fraser Wie-

ment, and Albert Lockwood, pianist,

ALBANY, N. Y., March 25.-
Comparing with the senate ac-
tion, the assembly today passed
the so-called Wales "theater
Padlock" bill, and sent it to Gov-
ernor Smith for approval.
The vote by which the measure
was passed in the lower house,
125 to 5, came as a surprise, as
it had been thought the bill was
"dead" in the rules committee of
of the assembly.
The "padlock bill" is designed
to make more stringent the con-
trol of the licensing authorities
over theaters and to provide that
any person who produces, man-
ages, acts, in or advertises a
dramatic production in which1
there is any scene, part or por-
tion which is immoral, indecent
or obscene shall be considered
violators of the law and that the
license of the offending theater
} may be revoked for one year.

"He Who Gets Slapped" In
University Theater
Play Productions will present on
Wednesday and Thursday, March 30
and 31, in the University theater, the
translation from the Russian of Leo-
nid Andreyev's "He Who Gets Slap-
ped". The play is a symbolical presen-
tation of the shattering of the ideals of
a mountebank in a small French cir-
cus. He, as the clown is called, is
forced to continue his comic pranks
and attitude even in the face of bitter
turns of fate, until he ends his life
in despair.
The title role of the production wil
be taken by David Owen, director and
head of Play Productions and other
leads by Leone Lee, '29, James Dahl,
'28, Donald Gary, '29, and Robert Wet-
zel, '28. Richard Woelhaf, '27Ed, is
technical director and stage manager,
and Ann Miller, '27Ed in charge of
the costuming. The costumes have all
been designed after those used in the
original production by the New York
Theater guild, and are being built by
the members of the Play Production
technical staff. The settings for the
piece are also being constructed by
the students. There are more than 30

The University theater is the name

fne Question Asked Of Newspaperman
By Senator Reed Relieves
Monotony Of 'trial
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, March 25-A new reel in
the long serial "Aaron Sapiro against
Henry Ford for $1,00,000" was run off
in Federal court today and the motor
car manufacturer was represented for
the first time as plotting directly
against Sapiro, the individual, inter-
nationally known Jewish organizer of
farmers' cooperative organizations.
-To the very last William J. Cameron,
editor of the Ford-owned Dearborn In-
dependent, vehicle of the alleged li-
belous articles, which Sapiro contends
damaged his reputation and circum-
scribed his activities, maintained )je
alone was responsible for the Ind -
pendent's articles and policies.
The moment after Cameron left the
stand, after six days there, Ford was
put in a new light, however, by James
Martin Miller. author of the authoriz-
ed editor of "The Amazing Story of
Henry Ford."
"When was the first time you came
to Detroit to interview Mr. Ford?"
asked William Henry Gallagher, chief
of counsel for Sapiro.
"In 1920," replied the Washington
newspaperman, adding that in 1923
he worked a year for the Dearborn
"Did Mr. Ford ever mention Aaron
Sapiro to you?"
"Yes, lie asked if I lnow Sapiro. I
told him that I did not know Sapiro,
but that I knew about him."
"What else did Mr. Ford say?"
He said, "Well, Sapiro and some
other Jews re organizing the farmers
and we are going to export them; I
think we can upset his applecart."
Upon cross-examination Miller was
asked only one question by Sen.
James A. Reed, of Missouri, chief .of
the Ford counsel.
"You set up that claim, (that Miller
had worked a year for the Ford or-
ganization) at Washington and lost,
didn't you?"
'I lost," Miller replied in a very
low voice.
"That's all," said Senator Reed, as
the npw witness was drawn after five
minutes of brisk, new testimony,
which lifted the -trial from the depths
of monotony into which it had fallen.
PARA, Brazil, March 25.-The
United States army good will flyers,

ITO $400,000
$400,000 Of Required Appropriations
For Tuberewlosis Institutions
Bloked By Legislators
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, March 25-With approx-
imately $300,000 of the required appro-
priations for state tuberculosis insti-
tutions blocked off, the house ways
and means committee today reported
two measures designed to rehabilitate
the state institution at Howell andtes-
tablish a research and treatment in-
stitution at Ann Arbor. The committee
cut the Birkholm bill, carrying $816,-
000 for rebuilding and improving the
Howell sanitarium, to $601,500. The
Warner measure, providing $500,000
for the Ann Arbor institution was
reduced to $400,000.
The bills specify that both institu-
tions shall be under the supervision
of the board of trustees of the state
tuberculosis sanitarium. The Warner
bill originally recommended the Ann
1 Arbor establishment under, the con-
trol of the state hospital commission.
The board of trustees was created
when the Howell sanitarium was con-
structed. In recent years, it has not
functioned, as it was said. If the ap-
propriation measures go through the
governor is expected to name mem-
bers tq the board.
As the measures were sent to the
floor they still failed to find favor
with the most ardent proponent of the
plan to place a parent tuberculosis
hospital in Ann Arbor, although the
possibility existed they would have to
be accepted. An original appropriation
of $500,000 for a new tuberculosis san-
itariuin will go to Howell instead of
Ann Arbor as the measures now stand,
while the new institution will secure
its appropriation through the regu-
lar channels.

(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, March- 25. -- The
grim menace of guns seemed tonight
to have rescued Americans and other
foreigners in Nanking after days and
nights of horror at the mercy of loot-
ing Cantonese soldiery.
As night fell over the ravaged river
city, Rear Admiral Howe, American
commander, sent flickering over the
whining radio the first official word
to relieve the forebodings of yesterday
and today.
Other foreigners were beginning to
come out of Nanking, he said, and
there was "a fair possibility" that 120
American men, women and children
refuging in Nanking university could
be evacuated to the ship during the
From Shanghai came press reports
that the refugees were actually mak-
ing their way to the waterfront.
Hear Of Murder
Meanwhile in Washington the offi-
cial report telling of the cold-blooded
murder of an American missionary
teacher by soldiers in Cantonese uni-
forms, brutal assault on American
women fleeing for their lives, the loot-
ing and wanton destruction of Amer-
ican schools and homes, and homes of
the American consulate itself, were
studied closely by President Coolidge
and his cabinet. No decision to send
additional naval forces or troops to
China was reached.
President Coolidge feels that the
forces now available to Admiral Wil-
liams, American commander-in-chief,
or on their way, will be adequate to
deal with the immediate situation.
The admiral has made no request
which has not been complied with, and
every action he has taken or author-
ized, including the still pending
threats to shell military points in
Nanking, has full approval of the
Washington government.1
Departments Back Williams
"The state aid navy departments
stand squarely back of Admiral Wil-
liams and our commanders in what
they have been doing to protect Amer-
ican lives and property in China,"
Secretary Kellogg said in a formal
statement after the cabinet meeting.
The question of fixing responsibility
for the murder of Americans and de-
struction of American property in
Nanking has been satisfied until the
fate of those still hiding in the city,
fearing to attempt even the short
trip to the waterfront and safety was
known. But it will be taken up in
due course with responsible heads of
the Cantonese government.
All through the day President Cool-
idge kept closely in touch with the
only official source of news from
Nanking, the naval radio. Late in the
day the stocky figure of a sergeant
major, Tom Dorney, Secretary Wil-
bur, marine orderly, and himself a
veteran of many a clash such as that
at Nanking, carried the first reassur-
ing message from Admiral Howe to
the White House, striding across
crosslots in his haste.
Radio Tells Story_
It was a dramatic story of horror
and heroism that unfolded hour by
hour as the stuttering radio bridged
the thousands of miles from Nanking
to Washington to keep the home gov-
ernment in almost hc-urly touch with

Negro Author Says That BIuddhi,,
Plato, Dante, And Spinoza Hell
Same Philosophy
Discussing "The Search for New
Life" Jean Toonmer, Negro author, de-
clared in a lecture yesterday after-
noon in Natural Science auditoriumn
that this search involves the recogni-
tion that man is not living as he
should be, and that he is capable of
living otherwise. These two consid-
erations he defined as the individual's
limitations and his potentialities, and
teintensity and sincerity in looking
for the new life, he said, is propor-
tional to the consciousness and reali-
zation of these problems.
The recognition of their existence
is contained in the records of the
past, particularly in the Scriptures,
said Mr. Toomer. He mentioned
Buddhism as another example of the
many religions that uphold this be-
lief, and pointed out that Plato, Dante,
and Spinoza also had such a philoso-
phy. Raising the question of what
more a person can do toward gaining
the new life than state old problems
in modern language, he declared that
there was no other way but the modi-
fication of man's limitations and po-
tentialities. He, stated that economics,
biology and therapy realize that man
is maladjusted to the world and that
this condtion can be. remedied, while
the dry r alism of modern writing is
but another evidence of the present
belief in the doctrine.
According to Mr. Toomer, our sense
of what man is capable of doing is
almost atrophied. In. his opinion this
is due to the age of specialization
which causes the development of only
one of the three sets of functions mak-
ing up mn as a totality. These are
the physical, emotional, and intellect-
ual sides. For a complete compre-
hension of the chances for human
progress, the lecturer declared that
it is necessary to consider all three
parts equally afid coordinate them by
an effective technique.
Tlye speaker expressed the belief
that the present system of empha-
sizing one of the factors in man's
makeup tends to develop that factor

at the expense of the other two. He
referred to Herbert Spencer as an-ex-!
ceptional scientist, but an emotional
infantile and physical weakling.
This leads, lie said; to only fragments
of the way to a new type of life. Main-
taining that the one sure way of liv-
ing must include all the parts of
man's makeup, Mr. Toomer ended
with the statement that "to find and
apply this way is to find life."
Relation of the present society tol
the professions of medicine and law'
will form the topic of two speeches
which will be given tonight at the
Powers hotel in Rochester, N. Y. by
Dean Hugh Cabot of the Medical
school and Hon. C. S. Whitman of
New York City. The occasion of theI
speeches will be the periodical 'ban-t
quet held jointly by the Rochester
Bar association and the Rochester

Micimgan 11pes For Lead In Hurdle
l ects; Dash Feature Expected
Fron tRester, Goodwillie
Coach Jack Moakley and his squad
of Cornell trackmen will invade Yost
field house tonight, conceded to have
the best chance of scoring a victory
over the Wolverines possessed by the
Red and White in five years. Coach
Farrell's men have won the last four
meets between the. two schools by
comfortable margins. The first event
will be run off at 7:30. Coupon books
can be used for admittance. '
Although Cornell is rated a slight
favorite in the East, western critics
generally predict a victory for the
Maize and Blue. Indications point to
the closest competition between the
two teams sinco the 46-40 Cornell
triumph in 1920.
Megaphone To Be Presented
Just before the nieet begins, Wil-
liam Warrick, '27, former Varsity
cheerleader, will present a silver
megaphone to Paul W. Endriss, '28,
newly chosen cheerleader, and Mayor
Campbell will make a short talk con-
cerning the award. The reorganized
Blue Key organization will meet the
Cornell team when it arrives in Ann
Arbor this morning.
The first event on the program, the
65 yard high hurdles, is expected to
bring a Wolverine triumph, with Don
Cooper, new Varsity hurdle star, con-
sidered the outstanding entry. Staf-
ford Tones is also expectedl to gain
points for the Wolverines in this
event. With Kinney, McDonald and
Tarbili as other entrants, Michigan
will have the strongest hurdle repre-
sentation in several years.
Spellman, Red and White star who
was counted on to place high or win
the lov hurdles, is still in poor con-
dition following the leg injury ho
sustained .in practice last week, and
Cooper is also favored to win the low
hurdles, having equalled the dual
meet record of 7.5 sec. several times
inl the last two weeks.
Hester's Form Is Better
The Hester-Goodwillie duel in the
60 yard dash is expected to be the
feature event of the1 meet, since both
men rank among the best dashmen
in their respective sections. Hester,
although beaten twice, is rounding
into better form and is now given an
even chance with Goodwillie. The
Red and White athlete, however, has
turned in some excellent races in the
indoor season and is favored by many
to beat the Wolverine star. Lasser
seems almost certain to gain the other
In Benson, Cornell has one of the
best two milers of the indoor season.
He has turned in times of better than
9 min. 30 see. on several occasions
and won the two mile in both the
eastern intercollegiate meet and the
dual contest with Yale. Hornberger,
Michigan's star, is also an - excellent
man and should press the eastern
man all the way.
Capt. Phil Northrop, versatile star,
has been entered.in the high jump and
pole vault and stands a fair chance of
winning or tying for first in both
events. None of the Cornell jumpers
can be counted on for more than 5 ft.
10 in. which Northrop has done fre-
quently, and he may- even make 6 ft.
Lane, Waldo, and Bonnette are Far-
rell's other entries here. Prout and
-Erickson are other entries in the pole
vault. Cornell, however, 'has at least
two men who have done 12 ft. 6 in,
which equals Northrop's best per-
formance of the year.
Ithacans Seek Quarter Mile
Cornell' quarter milers have much
better records than those of the Wol-
verines and should capture at least

first place. Mueller and Ohlheiser
are the Michigan entrants. Mueller
probably will push the Ithacans all
the way. The shot put is another
event where the Wolverines are no-
ticeably weak, and Cornell is con-
ceded first place here, although Jack
Lovette may surprise.
The 880 and the mile run are events
where neither Moakley's nor Farrell's
men have shown well, but several of
the Wolverines have been showing
improved form of late and should win
both events. Lomont appears a win-
ner in the half mile and should break
two minutes. Monroe, with a mile of
