TIE GLAD HAND
To the delegates of the Michigan
Interscholastic Press asociation we ex-
tend the glad hand of fraternity and
cordiality. Each year it is our pleas-
ure to welcome you on behalf of the
University of Michigan and The Michi-
gan Daily and each year it is our hope
that we have helped to give you an
understanding of th. motives and the
spirit that animates this great univer-
sity, and its organ, The Daily.
Such an \organization as yours has
a 'unique advantage in being able to
come here and see the things that are
being done in the next layer above.
And ours is the pleasure of helping
you and trying to give to you some
of the vision that we have so that you
may follow when we have gone.
May this year be the best year of
your career as an organization and
may your stay here be pleasant and
helpful. Our side of the program will
be carried out to the best of our abil-
ity and we only hope that it pleases
you as we have intended. Good luck
and a pleasant time!
SUPERSTITION AND FORCE
About a score of years ago an emi-
nent historian,ILea, wrote a book that
was considered the final chapter in a
story of humanity's shortcomings. He
called his book "Superstition and
Force," and it was written as a his-
tory; a history of a black epoch in
the annals of mankind that was pre-
sumbaly closed-the history of sup-
erstition and force.
Two days ago on one of the principal
streetof New York a fifteen year old
girl mounted a box and began ex-
horting the populace to better living
and kindred things. There is noth-
ing' unusual about this girl, except
that she began evangelizing at a very
early age; yet within ten minutes, in
sophisticated New York, there was a
riot from people attempting to touch*
the hems of her garments and press
The great historian Lea would be
immensely shocked if he could return'
today and see another chapter in the
failing of humanity that he deemed
closed years ago; and his observations,
if any, would probably be far from
complimentary to 20th century Ame-
roads than to make travel on them
easy. Three states now have laws
against slow travel and two others
are now con' idering bills whereby
slow moving vehicles would be pena-
lized for allowing their speed to fall
below a certain minimum.
It is wise that this thing be done.
The automobile has played, and will
continue to play, too important a part I
in the development of our country to
allow slow drivers to discourage in-
creased use of motor vehicles for
travel, pleasure, and shipping. Every-
thing should be done to encourage the
use of motor vehicles and the conven-
ience of using them should be increas-
ed and not allowed to decrease.
AND PARLIAMENT CHEERS
To some nations wars seem to be
the joy of existence, and though the
whining pleas of devastated Europe
still ring in the ears of pitying human-
ity, France has decided to erect a wall!
of iron around her country; aug-
menting their already vast land de-
fense with even more extensive and
The policy will cost billions of francs,
and the franc is not one fourth re-
covered from its Worldwardeflation;
but the parliament cheered madly'
when the policy was announced; in
the same address of Premier Poin-
tare a thinly veiled threat was cast
at Russia, and the United States and
other great powers were affronted for
their attempt to reduce navies. The
French parliament cheered.
In the next budget of France no
mention is made of the war debts ac-
crued in the last war. France is plain-
ly insolvent. Americans reconstruct-
ed the Cathedral at Rheims, and Ame-
ricans succored French widows and
orphans in the dark days of 1918.
Americans do not regret this humani-
tarian accomplishment, and America
is not the least bit sorry for what she
did; but America must not, and can
not, tolerate a continued militaristic
policy on the part of the nations re-
sponsible for that last great cataclysm.
Germany, bound by the rigorous
treaty of Versailles, has turned to the
prusuits of peace, and is fast gaining
back the commercial supremacy that
she lost in the war. While France is
dissipating its resources in a vain
effort to arm, with armaments that
will be obsolete in the next ten years,
the far-sighted nations of Europe are
building up resources that will be in-
vincible in another conflict. Beneath
the soil of France lie 40,000 American
dead, who gave their lives that that
nation might continue to enjoy the
fruits of peace and democracy. That
40,000 is the tribute we paid to mili-
tarism once before; yet forty miles
from those American graves, in the
great metropolis of Paris, a chain of
iron is forged in anticipation of war-
and parliament cheers!
Treasury officials who are consider-
ing a new move that will abolish all
of the war taxes now existent and
throw the burden for the support of
the government on the income, cor-
poration, customs and tobacco taxes,
are making a move that should have
been made last year, and a move that
cannot be delayed much longer if our
tax system is to stand and be a com-
prehensive and sytematic whole.
For the war has been over for nine
years and still a large tax has been
placed on many things, classed as
luxuries, but which are integral parts
of contemporary American life. In
the last three years the treasury sur-
plus has been increasing until at the
end of this fiscal year it will be well
The "government should appreciate
that a large treasury surplus does
nothing for the prqsperity of the coun-
try and does nothing for our national
reputation. The thing that counts
is not the amount of money that is in
the United States treasury, but the
sum total of the national resources,
the drawing power of the government.
These so-called war taxes which have
been carried over from the days of
the war should be removed as soon
as possible and the dependence for
funds thrown on the regular avenues
of taxation instead of emergency

"THE LAST OF MRS CHEYNEY"
A review, by Vincent Wall
It is quite as Lady Frinton remark-
ed: "The only nice women are the
tnes who never have any opportuni-
ties." Mrs. Cheyney was a good girl
(it said as much in the program note)
but she had opportunities-and avail-
ed herself * * * of some of them. If
you know what I mean.
Wound around somewhere in this
atmosphere of the English drawingl
room there are opportunities for both
kings of women-especially in a,
drawing room like that of the bril-
liant and beautiful Mrs. Cheyney. Of
course she was a professional lady
crook, but ,she was at least made anI
honest wpinan at the final curtain-
and was charmingly played by Amy

A review, by Rtobert txessner
The University Symphony orchestra
E possesses a pure technical spirit, but
he true spirit of orchestration was not
present--the living, subtle warmth
was absent. But it served the purpose
of producing the necessary accom-
paniment to the individual artists.
Fern Schott played the piano with
a technique that is nearly faultless
but the total effect is hindered by an
exaggeration of style that tends to ap-
pear too elegant. Pauline Kaiser dis-
played exceedingly poor judgment by
attempting Bleyle's Concerto in C
major. Bleyle never did write music
that anybody could sanely enjoy. A
more intelligent theme could have
been selected without much difficulty
that would have better suited Miss
Kaiser's talent. Miss Kaiser evidenced
much physical energy that over
steps nornal bounds to the extent of
ruining her posture on the platform.
Pearle Reimann has a well rounded
talent that arises in abundance
throughout her entire rendition. Lu-
cile Graham and Pauline Kaiser pro-
duced a pleasing Concerto for two
