EUROPE'S WAR SCARE
Europe's war scare over the Italo-
Jugoslav dispute has apparently
blown over and, though relations be-
tween Jugoslavia and Italy are still
strained, a settlement seems imminent.
Italy has filed her objections to the
preparation in Jugoslavia territory for
a revolutionary incursion into Al-
bania with the great powers. Unless
the situation grows considerably
worse, it is expected that she will
take no further action.
The Jugoslav Foreign Minister, on
the other hand, has offered assurances
that his country does not intend to
disturb the peace of either-Albania or
Italy. Several of the great powers
are also exerting their influence to
make the Belegrade government
check the "comtidiji" activity. The
only element of danger lies in the pos-
sibility that Italy will not accept the
assurances offered by Jugoslavia.
ELEVATE THE CHEERLEADER
The silver megaphone which will be
presented to the Varsity cheerleader
before the Cornell track meet tonight,
as a gift of the five honorary societies
of the University, should materially
elevate that office in the eyes of the
student body and others. The posi-
tion is one the prestige of which is
not what it should be as yet; its
recognition has been insignificant.
The new trophy should do much to-
ward fulfilling the objectives.
According to the plan under which
the silver megaphone is being pre-
sented, the trophy will be inscribed
each year with the name of the head
cheerleader. It will be handed down
annually as the new cheerleader is
chosen, reposing for display purposes
in the trophy cases of Yost Field
The idea is not new. Other univer-
sities have similar awards for the
position of Varsity cheerleader. That,
however, makes the gift none the less
creditable to the donors.
CAN WE AFFORD NOT TO?
With the approval of the Senate
University committe on the removal
of the mill tax limitation and .the gen-
eral maintenance appropriation the
prospects of the passage of both meas-
ures seem faiTrly good. The bills are
now in the committee on finance and
appropriations and it is reported that
this body looks favorably upon them.
As has been explained, the Univer-
sity expenses of maintenance are met
by a State mill tax for that purpose.
However, there was a limitation of!
$3,000,000 set on this fund in 1923,
later raised to $3,700,000 in 1925. The
removal of this limit will provide
about $4,925,000 under the equalized
tax values in the state. The appro-
priation for the building program is
i' continuation of the building pro-
gram started by the late President
Burton, as a result of the survey made
in 1921 of University needs.
It is to be hoped that the investiga-'
tions of visiting representatives and
senators will have shown the -need
of the requested appropriations. As
President Little has said, the ques-
tion is: Can the State not afford to
spend the money for such worthy and
necessary work as is carried on by the
Tonight the first Junior GirWs' play
in the history of the University will
make a public appearance outside of
Ann Arbor. On the former occasions
when the annual production was giv-
en in Detroit and Toledo ,several
years ago, the two performances vere
restricted to women.
The Detroit presentation tonight is
not intended to establish a precedent..
The receipts will go towards a worthy
purpose-the completion of the fund
for the proposed Women's League
If the Junior Girls' play meets with
as much favor in the eyes of alumni
as invariably does the male produc-
tion, the Union Opera, the University
will have passed another milestone.
Two American aviators are serving1
in the Conservative Nicaraguan army1

ment, and the State Department has
replied that it will take no measures
to rescue the aviators if they fall into1
the hands of the unfriendly army.

Crime waves are old stuff now, but
college riots are all the rage. The
latest-when we went to press--was
one down at Washington and Jeffer-
son college, where the police inter-
rupted a little argument between the
freshmen, whoswere attending a ban-
quet, and the sophonmores wno want-
ed to attend.
But the best part of this little story
is the fact that the students were the
ones that used tear gas.

When the sophomores arrived they
found the doors and windows locked,
so they proceeded to break the win-
dows with bricks, and then toss tear
gas bombs through into the banquet
That brought the freshmen out to
see what was happening outside, and
so they had a nice party in th mud.
Some uninvited guests arrived-the
police-and they got slightly bespat-
tered before they could convince the
students that mud was to walk
through on the campus, but not to

I THE FACULTY SWIM
Forward the faculty race,
Swimmers of exquisite grace,
Self named as Flounders, they enter-
ed the meet.
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to swim or die.
Into their water wings,
Into those trusty bags,
Into their sole support,
Blew their lung-fulls.
Off from the edge they fell,
Oh but it's hard to tell,
Just how they spluttored and splash-
ed as they went.
Down the long pool they raced,
How they that scene did grace; when
Into a man's-length lead,
Into the foremost place,
Into the head of the race,
Snuck one professor.
Prof s to the left of him,
Profs to the right of him,
Profs in the rear of him,
Grunted and gurgled.
His not to lose this race,
His but to save his fate,
His to escape disgr~e,
Felt that high person.
Smaller his lead did grow,
His stroke and his stride were slow,
Well he did come to know,
His lead would soon end.
So he with his accurate eye,
In a desperate ultimate try,
With his toe (on the sly)
He punctured some water wings. .
MAY BE COMING
The campus was stirred yesterday
by the rumor that the 1927 J-Hop
favors were on their way here. This
is only a rumor.
At a late hour last night the chair-
man of the J-Hop favors committee
denied any such knowledge. "I have
known nothing about the favors all
along," he said.
The rumor persisted, however, and
the J-Hop spokesman intimated that
they might arrive within a week or
two. "Susch promptness is nothing
short of remarkable," he said, "when
one remembers that the J-Hop has
only been over about a month and a

TONIGHT: The Mimes present "To
the Ladies!" by George kaufman andi
Marc Connelly in the Mimes theater
at 8:30 o'clock.
* * *
"TO THE LADIES!"
Tonight's performance of "To the
Ladies!" concludes a run of five
nights with a practically sold-out
house every night. This establishes
1 almost the season's record for the
I box-office in Mimes theater, and at
least warrants a later revival. It
seems doubtful at present that that
can be accomplished without some
delay, for Play Production and Direc-
tion are presenting "He Who Gets
Slapped" on Wednesday and Thurs-
day nights of next week, Comedy Club
will give "The Trumpet Shall Sound"
on Wednesday through Saturday, Mr.
McIntyre has secured the services of
Harry Lauder for Friday night in the
Whitney, and rehearsals will be be-
gun soon for "Anna Christie" con-
cerning which, an announcement will
be made later.
However, the enthusiastic patronage
countsjfr something and indicates a
success of sorts in the production. It
perhaps did not reach the artistic ac-
clivity of "The Man of Destiny" or
"R. U. R.", but it accomplished the
intended aim. After all it is the
audience that measures the success
of a play of this type. For unless
there is the proper response in the
house, the play can be credited as a
failure-which cetainly was not the
case in this instance.

FROM HILL AUDITORUM
,Stephen Kozakevitch, the Russian
baritone who is rather widely known
in Ann Arbor because-or in spite of
-his connections with past perform-
ances of the Cosmopolitan Club in
Hill auditorium, will make his ap-
pearance with the Detroit Symphony
orchestra Sunday, April 3, at Orches-
tra Hall. In this recital he will use
the following scores and orchestra-
tions: Moussorgsky's "Siege of Ka-
zan" from Boris Goudenev, the "Song
of the Flee," and the aria "Fin chan
dal vino" from Mozart's Don Juan.
The original scores will be provided
in every case, since Kozakevitch has
availed himself o the privilege ex-
tended to Americantartists by the
Metropolitan Opera Company is using
the Metropolitan library. This new
policy was recently put into effect by
Lionel Mapleton, official librarian
since 1889, and includes those of ac-
septed standing, whether they are
connected with the Metropolitan or
Kozakevitch has received favorable
comment wherever he has made an
appearance during the present sea-
son. He sang in Detroit with the De-
troit String Quartette, and the Free
Press said of him thep: "Here is an-
other baritone to scout the exploded
fetish of European superiority in tone
placement and general artistry."
He has studied as artist pupil with
Professor Alfred Blackman of Detroit.

SATURDAY, MARCH 26, 1927
Night Editor-CARLT(N G. CHAMPE
Foreign nations, particularly Amer-
ica, became again vitally involved in
the civil war between the Cantonese
and Pekin troops when an unknown
number of American and British lives
were taken by.a mob of undisciplined
Nationalist soldiers at Nanking . To
protect the Americans yet on shore
in that area, British and American
gunboats have trained their guns upon
the city, and have demanded that all
foreigners be delivered to the water-
front upon pain of bombardment. Re-
cent dispatches indicate that the time
for expiration of the ultimatum has
been extended, but that the entire sit-
uation has been placed in the hands
of the British and American naval
commanders at Nanking, who have
been ordered to act on their own dis-
The attack was probably the work M
of native troops, enthused with the
Cantonese success in capturing Shang-,
hai, and overcome with the idea of
obtaining loot and sweeping aside all
resistance i their path.aExcept in a
negative sense, the Cantonese com-
manders are probably not-responsible.C
Dispatches' indicate that Gen. Chian'
Kai Shek, one of the Cantonese war
l9rds, has already shown his inten-
tion of proyiding adequate protection
for all foreigners.
The position of the responsibility,
if it can be placed, however, has little
bearing upon the fact that the Amer-
icans in the Nanking area must be
protected. The promptness of the
American and British naval and land
forces in protecting the foreigners
gathered together on Socony hill is
to be commended. Considering their
strategic position overlooking the
city, their commanders acted wisely
in delivering an ultimatum for the
safe deliverance of all foreigners in
the area. Though Nanking is ordi-;
narily considered an undefended city,
its bombardment would be fully jus-
tified if it was necessary to save the
lives of neutrals confined in the area.
Apparently, the situation is a localJ
one. Though the presence of foreign
troops in Shanghai has turned out to
be quite fortunate in several instances,
'the advance of the Cantonese has been 1
effectedwithout serious menace to
