WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, "1927
Night Editor-ELLIS B. MERRY
may be the case at Wisconsin. There
is plenty of opportunity for athletic
participation here, however, in the
inter-fraternity and intramural fields.
It is true that too few take advantage 1
of this even at Michigan.
Thirdly, Wisconsin believes that
Varsity athletics are too much in the
limelight, "subordinating the intellec-
tual program of the university in the N
eyes of high school students, the gene-9
ral public, and even of the university
students." Such a condition is inevi-
table. Newspapers are responsible for
any such overemphasis. And why?
Because the public wants it, and a t
newspaper is a business enterprise
Fourthly, it is claimed that cut-t
throat competition is forced on the
coaches by the football public, and the
general attitude of the alumni tends
to accentuate the evils of the situation.t
It is reasonable to believe that Michi-
gan's coaches have not felt any such
competition. Perhaps, they would iff
they were not so competent. It.Is true
that the general attitude of alumni
does help materially to keep football
and other sports in the limelight. Yet,
such enthusiasm on the part of gradu-
ates is not unnatural.
Finally, it is contended that students
and' faculty have too little control of
athletics, with the result that there
is little harmony between athletics
and education. Such is not the case at
Michigan. There is no need for more
student or faculty control here. Co-
I operation is certainly not lackiing be-
tween these groups.
Among the suggestions made by the
Wisconsin board, the plan of replac-
ing freshman and sophomore gym with
two years of compulsory sports is ad-
vanced, "which will be the training
ground for Varsity athletics." The
idea is a good one and is certainly
worth a trial.
It is (again) suggested that inter-
collegiate competition be limited to
juniors and seniors, or perhaps to
sophomores and juniors. There is no
1 need for this. Thre years of Varsity
competition is not overdoing athletics
Wisconsin would limit each sport
to its season, doing away with spring
football, fall and spring basketball,
etc. Definite limits for each sport are
advocated. The value of such a step
is problematical. At present athletes
are undoubtedly better trained and
better coached. Whether ornot doing
away with preliminary practice ses-
sions, such as spring football and bas-
ketball, would seriously affect such
training is questionable.
'Again, it issuggested to limit daily
practice for each sport in the same
way that football practice has al-
ready been limited to two hours. The
idea is worth consideration. There
seems little reason why other major
sports should not be limited to two
Finally, the Wisconsin Union board
would limit each student to one inter-
collegiate sport, or prohibit his par-
ticipation in success~ive sports. Such
a drastic change seems unnecessary.
There are few college athletes suf-
ficiently versatile to take part in more
* than two major sports a year at the
most. And the number that partici-
pates in two a year is not large enough
* to b4 disturbed over.

LEADING LOCAL POLITICIAN
TO RUN FOR DEAN 'OF PROFS
The fever has us again. We feel
that we must run for something be-
sides a fire-engine, and so we hereby
enter our name for the office of Dean
of Professors in the coming elections.
* * *
Our duties would be similar to those
of Dean Bursley-if he has any. We
would keep a fatherly watch over the.
faculty members, and punish them
everytime they did something wrong.
We would have entire charge of the
surveilence of their leisure time, and
would make sure that they use it con-
structively. "No Pirates Among the
Faculty!" would be our battle cry.

WELCOME NEW N. E. I

ing Editor. We weren'trunning for

new staff will be taking over the paper,

We want to say to the boys who
are trying out for the job in this con-
test, that we weren't able to print
all the columns submitted, but they
all have been considered. We didn't
know there were so many on campus
who would want to stoop to the job
of writing humor.

R'UNNING I OI I. AND G.
With the announcement that we are
going to be given an opportunity tc
impeach the present Student council
and find new boys to arrange for the
Conyocations, we have been told that
we can get our pictures in The Daily
if we run for an office.
Being a devout agnostic we feel un-
qualified for the presidency of the S
C. A. but believe in us, men, when we
say thatwe have the "hot-shot" can-
did~te for the presidency of the B.
and G. boys union.

We have secured the Michigan de-
bating team which lost all of its de-
bates to go on the stump for us, but
the fear that they may not be able
to make clear our platform has led
us to pay for this ad.

1. New brooms, six feet wide, tha
sweep clean and easily.
2. We pledge ourselves to get oth-
ers to pledge enough money for a
league building for the benefit of the
pensioners, and not for the benefit of
the building itself.
3. Grass that grows only so high
and sheep to cut it.
4. In continuation wih our past
policy, we shall plant trees without
roots so that they can be transplanted
5. "Don't skate on the grass" ads
will appear in The Daily everyday.
6. For the B. and G. boys whc
sweep 100 feet of corridor a week wil]
be granted a week's vacation without
brooms at the boys camp conducted
by the S. C. A.

Caution, our fellow men, this Archi-
tect's dress-up affair is causing your
' leaders no little concern. The com-
mittee in charge has deliberately dec-
orated the gym to make it look like a
garden. Men, or to .be more familiar,
boys, don't you see what they mean?

Those T-square boys think that we
will have to clean up the mess Satur-
day morning because the state legis-
lature has assigned us all the garden-
ing work. We decree that not a broom
shall sweep Saturday: Take Friday

We heard that several of those so-
called students or skates are going to
the party dressed as gardeners. Boys,

loan that new broom which Pres. Lit-
tle left on his back porch Tuesday.

A review, by Theodore Hornberger
Let me tell you about it. I was
up to the New Sarah Caswell Angell
Hall to see a play, a gala opening, the
Rockford players and Cellini, all for
the benefit of the Women's Building,'
I didn't wait long for them to attack-
not more than fifteen minutes--but
plunged into the midst of vari-coloredt
chair covers, new curtain and "Vaga-
bond King" music prepared to fight
through at all costs, even if the win-
dows remained closed. It was a sharp -
struggle, but no one was permanently
killed and the wounded were well
cared for. All in all it was a good
This fellow Cellini is a clever vil-
lian certainly and by his own admis-
sion not a liar but a poet. His poetry
in the eyes of Mr. Mayer, author, con-
sists of the type adventurer in six-
teenth century clothes and manners
with a veneer of twentieth century
J vocabulary, not perhaps the ultimate
in Celhinis but quite satisfactory for all
practical purposes. Robert Henderson
wears aforementioned clothes, manners
and vocabulary enthusiastically and
youthfuly, and Frances Horine as An-
gela,his ,model, sets them off to ad-
vantage in the apparently unchanging
way of charming heroines in comedy.
With° them alone, however, "The
Firebrand" would be a dull two hours,
for the comedy lies almost wholly in
the lines of three others. Reyonlds
Evans as Alessandro, Duke of Flor-
ence obviously had the crowd as well
as the best of the dialogue, and he,
used them both well. The Duchess,
Amy Loomis, was equally effective
and , Frances Bavier as Emilia, a
servirigl, completed the trio of in-
dividuals which justifies the subtitle
of the play as "A Comedy Farce in the
Very Grand Manner." They supply
Sthevery. The laughs they get de-
pend upon the incongruity of the six-
teenth century social customs and the
clever remarks of smart repartee.
Camille Masline, as Beatrice, goat-
faced mother of Angela in search of
recompense for the loss of her daught-
er's company, was also outstanding in
ancient shrillness of voice and action.
For the others-the Ann Arbor clothes
horses-there is not too much to say.
Charles Livingstone played Ottaviano,
the villain, with approved villainous
voice and manner, but undeniably the
lady behind was right when she re-
marked that he looked like Charlie
i Chaplin. Richard Woellhaf and Wil-
liam Bishop played dignified courtiers
very dignifiedly but "The Firebrand"
used them only for background.

sented by the University Glee Club un-

A WORTHY VENTURE
It is rarely that university organiza-
tions step aside from their regular
duties of serving the campus and its
needs to do something for a worthy
cause outside. But when the do, they
should be supported in a whole-heart-
ed and a genrous fashioin. Chief
among the outside activities of campus
organizations is the fresh air camp
that is maintaiiued during the summer
by the Student Christian association.
Last year this camp made possible a
vacation for 355 boys from 'needy
families in and arcund Ann Arbor
The campus was asked to support this
move and it did so generously inr the
drive that was held lastespring.
The ideals of the camp are of the
highest and the personnel of the best
Their aim is to "foster and develop a
genuine reverence for the sacred
things of life, and a zest for the best
that life has to offer." For the reali-
zation of this aim they must have the
support of the campus. You will be
asked to contribute on Tag Day, Tues-
day, May 10th. Support the Fresh Air
camp! It is a worthy venture!
CRITICISMS OF ATHLETICS
In presenting criticisms-with reme-
dial suggestions-of the athletic situa-
tion as it exists today, primarily for
consideration by the Big Ten univer-
sities, the Wisconsin Union board has
made h commendable move in an ef-
fort to effect a closer correlation be-
tween intercollegiate athletics and
sound educational policies. To con-
tend, however, that conditions in the
various Conference universities are so
similar that a uniform corrective plan
is .advisable, or even possible, appears
fallacious after analyzing the state-
And that is just what the Wisconsin
Union executives maintain, or believe
They have judged the situation
throughout the Big Ten by existing
conditions athome and have offered
suggestions. which they feel will be
appropriate for' each university. The
athletic study, incidentally, was made
by a promient Wisconsin athlete who
is doing a bit of sincere reflecting be-
fore his graduation in June.
Among the criticisms, point number
one contends that athletics are too in-
tense for a few. It is claimed that

The problem of whether or not it
is practical to enforce the writing and
speaking of Gaelic alone is one of the
problems that faces the Free State
at the present time. There are many
clubs, corresponding, one supposes,
to our ultra-American Ku Klux Klan,
which have as their byword, "Learn
Irish or clear out." And involved in
the discussion are the school, the
church and the literary people.
One wonders how they hope to ac-
complish such a thing. Language is
a natural evolution having its founda-

habits of the people, the climate of
the section and many other such'things

the fact remains that language is only
a utilitarian thing and that it serves
only the definite purpose of enabling
people to express themselves
