Rogers' appointment is indeed an en-
couraging indication. The theorist is
not monopolizing the college faculty
today. More practical men are enter-
ing the profession each year and, con-
sequently, undergraduates are beingI
better fitted for their positions in life.
Compliments and recognitions such
as this may be regarded- as a barome-
tric indication of the character of the
nation's educational leaders.

cates doing away with all student

sonal rights element is not considered
i the more recent issue, but the
Daily Cardinal believes that the stu-1
dent car is endangering the morale,
as well as the physical welfare, of the
university's student body.
Leaving aside the arguments pro

mobile and prohibition questions, it(
behooves any newspaper to attemptr
consistency, at least, in its trend of
editorial thought,. -
The American Legion, otherwise
worthy and honorable organization,
has taken upon itself in recent years
the task of trying to dictate what
should be talked about and taught in/
public educational institutions, ele-
mentary and advanced. NumerousI
Legion post members, whose "virile
and vigorous patriotism" has been al-
lowed to supersede their better judg--
ment, have made themselves nuisances
in frequent attempts to determine
what shall be taught in the schools
and to suppress various liberal orc
"Communistic" organizations.C

WhatThey Say:'
Publishers of "Etude Music Magazine, Philadelphi Pa.
February the Ninth, 197.
Mr. Chares A. Sink,
University School of Music,
Ann Arbor, Michigan-


Dear Mr. Sink
There is a thrill that comes with the presentation of such a magnificent
musical festival as you have organized that can only be accounted for
through an..u nderstanding of the history of our race.
We here in America are a marvelous conglomerate of many races and
nations. In our early days the inhibitions of the Puritans and the Quakers
suppressed for almost a century the natural instinct of man to 'come together
in great musical festival,. Yet deep down in our consciousness as one of,
the most precious legacies from the past, was this wonderful- uipulse to
worship at the altar of music.
Whether our blood is Latin, Anglo-Saxon or Slav, there is within us
all something which we have inherited that makes such a music festival as
you have planned a soul satisfying event not to be compared with anything
that we know.
The presence of a great chorus, a wonderful orchestra and no less than
a dozen of the world's foremost artists, all gathering in person are suire to
make this festival a remarkable occasion.
Every ticket sold will be in fact the purchase of an opportunity ,to
take part in one of the great events in a human life, because after all the
members of the audiences are just as much participants as are those who
are upon the rostrum.
Great musical festivals are civilization builders and I extend my
heartiest congratulations to Mr. Earl V. Moore, to yourself and to all those
who have organized this splendid occasiorn.
I only regret I will be out of the country and cannot make it posible
to attend in person.

Prof. Waldo Abbot of the rhetoric de-
partment, authority on cheese, oil,
qnd co-ed grades, has given the fol-
I lowing statement to Rolls: "Rock-
ford,' he says, "The name of a town
in Illinois, is a vulgar Americaniza-
tion of 'the much more aesthetic term
Roquefort,' which is correct. The
name is derived from a famous Irish
chemist and gas expert who invented

"For Favors, Be a Committeeman."
* * *
The Hobbs' expedition will be in con-
stant touch with the University by
radio, according to announcements. Al
special station here will enable Hobbs
to continue talking to local audiences
about the expedition.
