all the king's men couldn't drive the
chief executive to waste his time in
a state as rock-ribbed Republican in
sentiment, as our own. True enough,
the President wants to do some fish-
ing but it will be of the political kind
and not the gentle art of angling in
flowing streams.

Apparently combining various ideas
for the reform of football, President
Hopkins of Dartmouth has suggested
to the athletic council of that college
that two varsity teams be formed
whicli would be limited to sopho-
mores and juniors, though coached by
If the reports have not been mis-
leading, President Hopkins has the
interest of thq sport and the men
engaged -in it at heart. He has been
moved by a sincere desire to free the
game from much of the criticism
which it has elicited. Hs proposal;
however, would seem to bring little
improvement, if, in fact, any is need-
ed. Student coaching, both in its phy-
sical and moral aspects, woul4 be
mediocre. Though the proficiency of
the players would be lowered, student
and alumni interest would very likely
continue as ;great.
His suggestion of a "home-and-
home" arrangement of games is open
to the same argument advanced
against the proposal when it was be-
ing considered in the Big Ten Con-
In brief, it is questionable if the
plan would remove the criticism of
commerciality from football, better the
situation, distribute glory to more
,coaches and players, increase loyalty
to the institution, or enable students to
receive more from theiy academic pur-
The New York state theater "pad-
lock bill," designed to make more
stringent the control over theatrical
productions with particular reference
to the "immoral, obscene, or indecent"
parts of them, has just passed both
houses and has been sent to Gover-
nor Smith for approval. The bill is
largely thearesult of the hue and cry
which has arisen in official New York
city over shows as "Sex" and others.
It is simply the old story over again,
that of deciding where art leaves off
and vulgarity begins and as yet no
one has ever been found who can
solve this problem. Each decade top-
ples over the judgments of its pre-
decessors, standards pass, new ones
arise from the; old. Setting up of-
ficial bodies of censorship, public com-
mittees, and the like have usually
proved ineffectual. Committees of
artists have too often been unable to
agree over the merits of productions
being judged.
A few hooted individuals who have
maintained that public opinion is the
only fair judge of such matters have
found that they have been correct in
the long run. The test of public opin-
ion has been the standards by which
literature has been judged for cen-
turies, but that seems to have been
forgotten by those who would legislate
indecency out of the theaters. If let
alone, cheap, vulgar shows have us-
ally died for lack of patronage. When
condemned and legislated against they
have played to full houses of curio-
sity seekers. The point is clear.
As a result of the report of a fac-
ulty "fact-finding committee" regard*-
ing the publication of material "dis-
respectful and scurrilous" student
editors of "The Iconoclast," a publica-
tion at the University of Georgia, are
now awaiting punishment for their re-
puted offenses.

SUNDAY, MARCH 27, 1927
Night Editor-CHAS. E. BEHYMER
Considerable interest has been at-
tached to reports from China concern-
ing the connection of Soviet Russians
with the Cantonese party, particularly1
since -these radical advisors of the
Chinese have been credited with in-.
stigating sentiment and action against{
the foreigners.
At the time of the Hankow riots,t
dluring the early part of the year, it
was evident that the Cantonese lead-l
ers were rather closely allied witht
Soviet agents. Gaining experience in
political affairs, however, they have
since developed a more moderate at-
titude toward the foreigners, and
have loosened>:their connection with
the Russians. In his recent manifesto,.
General Pai, one of the cantonese
commanders, urged the Chinese po--
ple to distinguish between attacking,
imperialism, the traces of which they ,
wish to eradicate in China, and at-t
tacking foreigners. Vigorous denials
of any relations with the Soviet gov-'
ernmnent, have also 'been issued fromE
time to time.t
It may be expected that the Can-J
Ulnese party; nw that it has gainedI

To the President of the University,
Whereas it has been brought to our
attention that the University has won
one of five debates this year, and .
Whereas we, the Grand Rapids al-
umni, always make a point of adopt-
ing a resolution when the University
starts going downgrade, and
Be it hereby resolved that we, the
Grand Rapids alumni, recommend
1. A field house be built for the in-
door practice, in order that our teams
may have the same advantages as
those in warmer climates.
2. That Coach Densmore be given
at least half a dozen assistants for
the training of his squad.
3. That we raise the salaries of our
debaters to a parity with those of our
4. That some systematic method of
bringing outstanding high school de-
baters to Michigan be adopted.

I didn't go to the track meet
last night, said the cynical seni-

"The question" before the legisla-
ture, according to President Little,
"is not 'Can we afford to spend the
money?' but 'can we afford not to?'"

Now they tell us that the total casu-
alties in China have been one dead

only exagerated it about 2,400 per cent.

These riotous Chinese have become'
jealous of the Ann Arbor students.

tertainment is his singing of Scotch
ballads. At any rate they get a big
hand and everybody joins in the
chorus. The rest of the time is spent
in telling innumerable jokes on him-
self-in fact one doubtsnthe au-
thenticity of most of them, since
he somehow manages to comb'ine
with them the unsophisticated and
naive aphorisms that Dorothy Dodd
uses in her cook book liners. In any
event Mr. Lauder has capitalized the
canny philosophy and humor of his
countrymen to a sufficient extent to
raise his salary into four figures. It
is another of those shows that children
should take their parents to see.
