SUNDA , APRIL 3, 1927
The appogtment of a committee of
several faculty members by Dean
John R Elliger, of the literary col-
lege, to make a study of the gradingI
system and methods of eamina-
tions used in the various departments
of that college is a step truly worthy
of commendation. The move was ad-
vocated by President Little some time
ago and the student body has been
anxiopisly awaiting action on the part
of the faculty in that respect.
The committee will investigate the
grading and examination systems and
then report the undesirable features
of each with a view towards obtain-
ing improvements where needed. Both
systems are faulty in many respects
and the committee, if sincere in its
work, should have little difficulty in
correlating the outstanding defects,
at least. Tile real problem will comel
in finding suitable methods for sub-
It is to be hoped that no further
time will be lost in determining the
personnel of the committee now that
the initial step has been promised.
The sooner the worst features of
grading and examining are brought
to light by a group whose recommen-
dations will bear weight, the greater
the probability for remedy with as
little further delay as possible.
Outside of the complications with
foreign powers, the outstanding ques-
tion in the Chinese situation concerns
the ability of the Cantonese party to
continue a, a successful agent of
nationahism despite the internal
struggle between its radical and con-
servative elements.
As reveale, by the translation of
speeches given at Cantonese conven-
tions, this g;ift was founded in the lat-
ter part of February. Recently, when
the contro of the government passed
from the committee of the party into
the group of three radicals, presum-
ably dominated by Russia, it was
widened considerably. Gen. Chiang
Kai-shek, commander of the National-
ist troops,<who has opposed the Red
influence from the beginning, has an-
nounced his intention of ousting the
Moscow agents from control of the
narty. The latter. it is exected. will I

will be a test of the Cantonese party,
which may reveal its real abilities to
establish a central government in
Within about two months the class-
es of 1927 will be history as far as
undergraduate connections with thec
institution are concerned. It is press-
ing that some action be taken to de-
cide just what the memorial gift shall
be, but opinion on that matter seems
to be divided. Suitable lamps on
either side of the entrance to An-t
gell hall, an ornamental clock for the
same building, an endowment fund,c
a scholarship, and a contribution to
the Burton memorial bells fund have
been suggested as appropriate gifts.
This last, however, is by far the mostt
significant and worthy of considera-
Following the death of President1
Marion LeRoy Burton - in 1925, the
Board of Regents set aside the sum
of $100,000, the income of which
would be paid to Mrs. Burton duringI
her life and following her death to
her children if they had not reahed
the age of thirty years. When this
time is up, the $100,000 principal will
be kept as the Burton Memorial fund
and will be used for emergency pur-
poses as directed by University au-
thorities. During that same year a
group of students suggested that a
World War memorial bell tower or
campanile with Burton memorial
lells be constructed on Huron street
facing the Library. As a result of
this suggestion, interest in the cam-
panile project was aroused. The 1925
senior classes of the literary college,
School of Education, and architectural
college contributed about $2,500,
which uum remains as a distinct fund
for the Burton memorial bells, to be
erected in the projected campanile.
Since that time the status of the fund
has been unchanged and a few addi-
tions have been made. An alumni-
faculty-student committee has report-
ed favorably upon the plan for the
Burton bells, to be placed in the
memorial campanile. The Burton
Memorial fund as determined by the
Regents and the bells fund are, of
course, entirely separate.
Within little more thap a year those
students who knew President Burton
personally will graduate and be no
longer actively connected with the
University. The action necessary for
the establishment of the bells fund,
earnestly begun, has not been kept
up. Interest in such a memorial to
President Burton should not be' al-
lowed to flag. With the present
Women's league drive on, the way is
not open for an active campaign to
be started now but the present class
of 1927 in the various schools and
colleges in the University could cen-
ter interest at once in the memorial
bells project and bring ithto attention
by contributing to that fund as their
Igift to the University. If funds for
the bells could be raised as an ei-
dence of good faith, the way would be
opened for a donation of the cam-
panile itself. The hopes and plans
for a memorial campanile are not to
be discouraged. The senior class can
help tremendously.
Three million men and women in
the United States are now pursuing
some kind of education after working
hours, it was revealed in a recent in-
vestigation made by the American
Association for Adult Education. This

number is greater than the total en-
rollments of all the colleges and uni-
versities in the country.
It is a significant, as well as in-
teresting, fact that the number of per-
sons employed daily who are taking
the opportunity to obtain some kind
of education is greater than that of
all those devoting their full time to
the pursuit of higher learning. These
three million men and women have
come to understand and appreciate
the true value of education. The diffi-
culties and time involved for definite
study after working hours makes the
assumption evident. It is deporable
that the realization does not come
more often earlier in life; so many
later regret the wasted years of op-

ANN ARBOR, April 2.-Timothy'
Hay, a newcomer in campus political
circles, was entered as a dark horse
in the race for mayor of Ann Arbor
by his friends last night. He will
run as a sticker candidate.

I am running as the Students'
Choice for Mayor," said Hay last
night. "The University has its candi-
date in Campbell, and the townspeople
are voting for the local Oil king, but
up to this time the students have had
nobody to represent them. I am now
that nobody."

Mr. hay stated his platform as fol-
(1) No police protection for thea-
tcrs at any time.
(2) Laughing gas instead of tear
gas to be used in case townspeople
rush convocations.
(3) Pave at least one street every

A review, by Vincent Wall.
Somehow, with all the eulogistic
press comment concerning such rep-
resentative American opera as "The
Witch of Salem" and "The King's
Henchman", the idea of the operetta
is assuming an important proportion.
Many of the musical critics--witness
Edward Moore-have already raised
the anathema which formerly rested
on this most innocuous of all eye and
ear entertainment, and are openly
commending certain productions in the
field. "The Nightingale," continuing
at the Cass theater this week, falls by
general accord into this category.
While the music except for "May
Moon" and "Two Little Ships" is not
outstanding, there are voices of ex
ceptional quality and in any event i
disproves the tradition that the tenor
and soprano shall sing a last dying
duet ij the midst of the awful carnag
at the end of the third act. Eleanor
Painter in the name role is as beau
tiful and charming as Jenny Lind a.

voice is still full and true and richly RAE

The last concert of the Faculty
Concert series will be given this aft-
ernoon at 4:15 o'clock in Hill audi-
torium. Albert Lockwood as soloist
with the University Symphony or-
chestra will feature the program with
de Falla's "Nights, in the Gardens of
Spain." The orchestra is also at-
tempting the. Beethoven D Major
Symphony and the( Overture Comique
of Keler-Bela.
The de Falla number is interesting
and highly colored-almost a revival
of the classical in Spanish music. It
was originally conceived as three noc-
turnes and treats the piano part in a I
novel way, since it is not used as a
solo instrument, but rather as an or-
chestral instrument-in the nature of
obligato. De Falla is, of course, pre-
eminnt in the younger school of
Spanish composers. In fact it is due
to his influence that Spanish music
is assuming the proportions that it
possessed when the early death of
Albeniz cut short the progress.
