Americans have come more and
more to lean on legislation by Con-
gress for every immediate need. In
general the policy is sound and prac-
tical, and it is only natural that the
government of the United States, as
represented by its Congress, should
be the organ of action for the popu-
lace of the nation.
Sometimes however, action by Con-
gress is impracticable; and accom-
panying conditions show the present
Mississippi flood disaster to be one of
those occasions. The advocates of a
special session of Congress for the
consideration of the problems the dis-
aster has created show neither a grasp
of the situation or a knowledge of the
most summary methods of relief.
If Congress were to be assembled,
in the first place, the flood would be
over and the homes rebuilt before any
program of relief would be definitely
adopted; experience with our legisla-

tors should show us that. The prob-
lem is one of immediate purport, and
the appeal which President Coolidge

pointed by the nations themselves,

organizations as world chambers of
commerce who are experts in agri-
culture, finance, and industry. Every
detail of the inner workings of the as-
sembly has been evolved in the most
business-like fashion, and the whole
seems to be pervaded with an air of
Primary problems which are to bel
taken up include studies in the present
disequilibrium of the world studies
which will have special reference to
maintaining the future international
peace through economic agencies.I
After a momentous season of parleys4
which attempted the impossible task!
of working from the top down, it is
refreshing and gratifying to see ex-
pert workmen attempt the job in a
more tractable manner.
Among the many fields in which
Michigan has secured a position of un-
rivaled supremacy, none is more defi-
nite and more generally admitted than
her leadership in the field of the col-
lege opera.
Universities from coast to, coast
envy her record, and attempt to im-'
itate it; and, if there is any reason
that stands out above all others for
,his prominence, it is the support that
the Opera is accorded here. It is
support that has made possible the
securing of one of the nation's lead-
ing operatic directors, and which
makes possible the annual trip through
more than a dozen of the largest]
cities of the nation. This cooperation
must naturally continue, if this sup-
re'macy is to remain and one of the
most concrete evidences of this sup-
port is found in the number of men
who try for places in the chorus of
the annual production.
During this week registrations for
Stryouts have been held daily at the
Mimes theater and about 400 have l
reported. This number is large, as it
deserves to be, but it should be still
larger if those in charge are to have
an adequate opportunity for selec-
More than fifty of these men will
be taken on the trip next year, and
if Michigan values the spremacy she
has gained in this field, it is a very
real and tangible responsibilty for
every student to try at least, for a
places in the opera choruses.
President Coolidge has at last com-
mitted himself on his ,pan- American
policy. He has declared that all the
nations in the Pan-American Union
stand on a basis of absolute equality;
and& he has done more than that: in
proposing some very concrete ways in
which these nations can get together
