MIXING ISSUES -
To The Editor:
Is not Professor Hobbs confusing
issues with regard to the S. C. A.?
As I understand it, the Association, l
as such, is not committed to pacifism
or any other political "ism." Some
in ividuals in it, speaking for them-
selves only, are pacifists in Mr. Sher-
wood Eddy's non-resistance sense of
the term (we are all pacifists, Profes-
sor Hobbs included, in the sense of
hating war.) But the freedom of
speech enjoyed by an individual with-
in an organization ought not to com-
mit the whole organization. Professor
Blank, let us say, advocates the Single
Tax. Would it be fair to herald the
fact under such a caption as "Michi-
gan Facul\y Endorses Single Tax?"
Now, it is as unjust to assume that
the whole Christian Association is of
one mind on political questions as to
assume that the whole faculty is so.
Just a word on an entirely different
question. I do not want "Timothy
Hay" to drop his column until he is
assured how much many of the faculty
have admired the wit, urbanity, sub-
tlety and skill with which he has kept
"Toasted Rolls" worth reading day
after day. "Toasted Rolls" is all that
the "Gargoyle" ought to be. Isn't it
worthier of a college to produce real
fresh satire on incidentspofdcampus
life than merely to copy old jokes from
professional "comic papers" on the
sole themes of "wine, women, and
jazz?"
Yours for a better sense of humor
for both faculty and students,
-Preston Slosson.

The ideal platform for some progres-
sive candidate for one of these in-
portant campus offices ought to include ;
something like the following:

"Cooler Warm Weather will beI

Greenland as is possible.

"Speedief Spring Games. And a

"Student seif-government for Michi-

If that doesn't elect him, it's because
he didn't know the fellow that counted

OUR CAMPUS OPINION
To The Editor:
I am pleased to see that there are
others besides myself who enjoy be-
ing in the limelight caused by the dis-
cussion of open letters, for I am but
little concerned over being called a
fanatic, as indeed I have been many
times. It's , fine stuff to be talked
about, especially when you're fighting,
too.

THE FRESH AIR CAMP
TODAY is the day that you will
be asked to donate something-any
amount tht you wish-to the fund
for the Fresh Air'Camp that is Thain-
tained each year by the Student Christ-
ian association. The fund that will be
collected today will enable the asso-
ciation to give a vacation. to about
400 needy boys from the vicinity of
Ann Arbor.
This camp is under the control of
the association, and the leaders and
directors are older students who have
taken some recognized part in campus
activities and achievements. Most of
these men work for only a small sum
for the six weeks of camp, because
they are convinced that their work
is worthy and successful. The ideals
emphasized at the camp are of the
highest; the boys are taught the es-
sentials of good sportsmanship and
fair play, and their health is improved
through outside work and exercise.
Most of the boys for whom the camp
cares would never be able to leave the
city during the summer if it were
not for this help. They would be in
grave danger of becoming mere street
gamins and potential parasites. In
short, by giving these boys a vacation
the Fresh Air camp is doing a worthy
service and merits your support.
PROGRESS
Since its first course in "Rapid
Writing' was given by Prof. Fred N.
Scott, head of the rhetoric department,
more than 30 years ag, improvement
and progress in journalistic work has
been rapid. As a climax to its activi-
ties, possibly as a sort of reward for
its recent advancements, announce-
ment has been made of plans now
under way for the establishment of
the future University of Mchigan
department of journalism as a sepa-
rate and secure departmental unit;
one which will be among the fore-
most of its kind in the country.
Seven years ago, Prof. John L.
Brumm, now head of the department
took over the helm, and is to be com-
mended for assuming the responsibili-
ty in many of the progressive steps
taken since that date. Enrollment has I
constantly increased until with more
than 300 students now taking work in1
journalism, the figures rank among
the foremost in enrollment with other
schools giving work in journalism in
the country. Standards have been

"PIGS"
A review, by Kenneth King
On the occasion of the final perform-
ance of "Pigs," the innocuous and
mildly amusing John Golden show
which held unbewailed its way last
night, this writer wishes to take viol-
ent exception to the general depreca-
tion of the local actors who have ap-
peared with the Rockford Players. j
Appearing in these plays after a maxi-
mum of two rehearsals, the local play-
ers have given performances which are
little short of excellent.
In the present opus particularly,
Robert Wetzel and Samuel Bonnell
give polished performances, in no way
inferior to those of the professional
members of the company. Frances
Bavier and Robert Henderson as the
youngsters with a penchant for pigs,
accomplish the inevitable miracle and
raise the unavoidable mortgage-money
in pleasing style. Reynolds Evans, Amy
- Loomis, and Frances Horine, molded
nice characterizations out of an un-
promising script.
Considering that "Pigs" was origi-
nally produced under the aegis of I
John Golden, who specializes exclusi-
vely in clean plays, we were slightly
shocked to find an illegitimate baby
as one of the important offstage
characters. We suspect that the baby
was dragged in by the play doctor to
keep the play from being unendurably
mild, and as we are not particularly
susceptible to babies, illegitimate or
otherwise, for us the play was just
that.

THE MAIER PUPILS IN RECITAL
A review, by Vivien Bulloch
With very appropriately chosen
numbers, Etude and Berceuse by
Chopin, and Brahms' Rhapsody, Miss
Fern Schott created a charming musi-
cal atmosphere in the auditorium of
the School of Music last evening. With
poise and ease she opened the ex-
cellent program presented by the
pupils of Guy and Lois Maier. But
when Dorothy Simmons played the
lovely Papallons of Schumann, I be-
came so engrossed in the captivating
butterfly movements of her head that
I failed to listen very closely to the.
music.
I find myself incapable of making
any such asinine remarks as might
do the other artists on the program
justice. Elizabeth Davies has such
really remarkable technique, and plays I
with such a beautiful touch, interpret-
ing her numbers with a sympathetic
understanding, that nothing I might
say could give the real impressiveness
of her performance.
Dalies Frantz played up to his repu-
tation, which is about as much as one
dazes say of him without becoming
trite. His stacatto technique is excel-
lent, and his vivacious rendition of
the intricate measures of Kreisler-
iana by Schumann so far surpassed
the -usual professional performance
that the audience sat spellbound. Miss
Houser played Chopin with a delight-
ful vigor, and while one feels that
perhaps her touch is not the best
Chopin, her music was really very
good.
The music lovers of Ann Arbor are
awaiting with pleasure the professional
appearances of Miss Davies , Mr.
Frantz, and Miss Hauser, in the now
very near May Festival, and at that
time those who failed to hear them j
last evening will marvel at their abili-
