and Britain and America in particular
are taking infinite precautions not to
be burned. German and French in-
dustrialists also want to know more
before supplying Russia with such
iuterial things as railways and cus-
toms privi(egs. But there axe un-
limited posibilities in the exploitation
of Rtussia's vast resources, and thel
good will brought to the conference
by Sokolkinoff and Ossinski can go
far towards naking these available. 3
There were mentioned, of course,
other matters which were not received
with as much enthusiasm, such as
cancellation of war debts and the
cutting out of armament expenditures,
but these are largely secondary and

And just a last few words here,
about something that has bothered us
greatly in the past two days:
LMST: A perfectly good riot, Tues-

10 o'clock. Anyone who was taking
part in same, or who knows about it,
please call us ait The Daily.

Libraries are crowded, and the long
ignored work is feverishly made up.
The air of collegiate disdain for things
scholastic disappears, and 10,000 stu-
dents turn into the home stretch of
a school year-the home stretch that
means sucess or failure for a large
number of them.-
Many are the temptations that have
stood in the way of college work all
year, and some have fallen by the way-
side as victims. Some. will be in-{
evitably eliminated from the group at'
the end of the year, as some are in-
evitably eliminated gt the end of
every semester. The procss of elimi-
nation will be in many cases tragic.
Next month nearly 2,000 members of
the student body will receive their de-
grees, and enter the seriousubusinss
of life. They have spenit four years,
some of them more than that, to pre-
pare for the work that will be theirs.
The end is upon us, and there are
three more weeks of school. Success
or failure, victory or defeat, and in
many cases survival or abnegation
will be measured by that margin.
Michigan is entering the most serious
three weeks of the college year-the
final three weeks. Whatever the out-
come or the prospects of outcome,
there is no time now for vacillation.
Wiliam Allen White avers that
bearded men cannot kiss properly.-
Which goes to prove that there is a
lot of improper kissing done outside
of the colleges.
A recent headline reads: "Construc-
tive News'Wanted." We are glad to
hear it-bout where?

(or rather unmentione ). One of the
most fragrant of these bit:-the sad
aftermath of the Chicago Civic Opera's
sojurn in Detroit for four perform-
ances-was hardly mentioned.
In fact it is better not, althocugh the
opinion might be ventured that Grace
Dento, local impress ario, was given
rather shabby treatment and the Chi-
cago management will find little De-
troit support for next season's operas.
The next fiasco that should have
been exploited was George Tyler's re-
vival of "Trelawney of the Wells"
which played last week,Thursday and
Friday in the city. The supposedly
brilli nt cast of old favorites as well
as the more recent luminaries in the
theatrical firmament gave a singular-
ly uneven perfoirmance, although the
audience offered applause on each en-
trance and exit of John Drew and Mrs.
Whiffin. However, the only creditable
acting was that of Mrs. Whiffin, Wil-
ton Lackaye and Peggy Wood; it must
have been funny to see all the old
hams fighting for center stage, al-
though Mr. Pinero's bit of sweet lav-
ender is said to have suffered in con-

With the'Senate's refusal to accept
the conference report, Michigan's.
state legislature has practically refus-
ed to pass the death penalty law for
the state's murderers. In four suc-
cessive sessions of the legislature the
matter has been brought up-first as
a mere gesture and side issue, and
finally as a real and burning ques-
tion, calling forth the greatest .efforts
of the legislative session..
The vote was 20 to 10 in the Senate,
but the result is far from discouraging
to the proponents of the bill. This
session is -the first in -which the death
penalty measure has passed the lower.
house of the legislature, and in view
of the popular demand represented
by the two to one majority there, it
is not hard to imagine that in 1929
even the-Senate may be persuaded to
pass the bill.
One very vital error was made in
the recent handling of the bill which
finally cased its defeat. A refren-
dum, by-th voters of the state had
been iacorporated in the first draft;
and by this means the legislature could
have shifted the responsibility of the
measure directly onto the people._
If this had been left in the confer-
ence report the bill would have prob-f
ably .passed, the Senate; and from just
the standpoint of representative gov-
ernment there could have been nothing
more fair than such a referendum.
For two years at least, possibilities
for a death penalty bill are practically
negligible. If our present increase inI
violent deaths continues it is likely
that 1929 will see a revision of action,
and a posible enactment of such a
law. Meanwhile, law enforcement of-I
ficials and the couyts should efficient-
ly utilize the machinery at their dis-1
posal, particularly the life sentence
for murder, in an effort to accomplish
the same end for which the death pen-
alty is intended.
The attitude of Soviet Russia at the
economic conference has broken on
the assembly with somewhat less noise
and somewhat more of a shock than
most of the delegates had expected.
From the speeches of her delegates it'
is evident that Russia is still-firm in
her convictions toward capitalism and

To The Editor:
Emerson stated that "a foolish con-!
sistency is the hob-goblin of littlel
I minds." However the editors of The
Daily suffer from no such devotion to
consistency, either wise or foolish. I
refer specifically to the editorial laud-
ing Calles dictatorship in Mexico. It
is not so long ago that The Daily bit-
terly condemned a similiar policy car-
ried out by Mussolini in Italy. Be that
as it may, the main error in the pres-
ent outburst lies elsewhere.
The learned editor glibly refers to
the "arrogance of the Catholic Church"
and "the shackles of reactionary in-
stitutions." One wonders just what
is meant by the "arrogance of the
Catholic Church." The lies appearing
in the press have been too frequently
refuted to warant lengthy discussion.
h-owever, just where the "arogance of
an institution which for seventy years
has been forbidden to own its own
churches, and whose priests have been
consistently maligned and slandered,
if not directly persecuted, as at pres-
ent, just where this "arrongance" man-
ifests itself or of what it consists is
apparently another question, a ques-
tion with which the editor does not
concern himself, probably because
such "reactionary institutions" are be-
neath his notice. Since the adoption
of a new constitution in 1857, the
Church has been terribly handicapped
in its work of educating the masses,
since at that time a very inefficient
system of public school education was
substituted for the Catholic schools
which were partially suppressed. It
is to this suppression of the Church,
not its "arrogance," that the present
situation in Mexico is due.
Incidently, I regret the religious
issue brought forward by the injudi-
cious editorial in question, but since

A definite editorial policy is be-
ing decided upon by the incoming
management. Of course our prime
consideration is to please-at least to
please the students. We will not
hesitate to sacrifice the B. and G.
boys, Chief-of-Police O'Brien, or even
,Harry Tillotson if necessary. The re-
mainder of our policy will be an-
nounced as soon as printable.
At last elections are ovex and the
campus can once more settle down
to its customary peace and quietness
-if it ever was disturbed.
* * * '
All the fuss made in the interest of
publlicIty by The Daily seems a bit
superfluous. Hasen't Rolls been tell-
ig everybody that there's nothing In
this office-holding business ?
Outside of the candidates themselves,
the chief interest in the elections was'
probably that of the new edior of the
'li nsian. Now he'll have to start look-
ing for a bunch of hew pictures.

A Review, by Thomas J. Dougall
Th is melodrama by Lloyd Griscom
and Jack McGowan was given a pre-
mier opening in Detroit a week ago
Sunday night at the Shubert Detroit.
Since premieres on tryout are rare in
the city the show merits the following
"TENTH AVENUE, coming at the
end of a season of melodramatic ven-
tures, is remarkable in that it car-
ries an idea along with its attempt at
atmospheric creation. It is a sort
of 1927 Candida and it almost pre-
sents a problem.
"The play is about a certain Lila
Mason who keeps a rooming house on
Tenth Avenue. Among her roomers
are Guy Peters and Elzy Everetts, the
former a gentleman gambler and the
latter a general bad boy. Lila loves
Guy, but she is drawn by an even
stronger maternal and protective in-
stinct to Elzy. She even promises to
marry the latter to keep him straight.
Lila needs money, however (the old
'meller' stuff) to pay for the rent of
her house and Guy sets out to get
it at the poker table. All of which
makes Elzy so insanely jealous that
he rather crudely kills and robs a
fellow roomer in order to be Lila's,
saviour as well as her future hus-
band. .The blame for the murder is
placed on Guy, and Lila finds that her
love for him is all that matters. So
of course Guy is exonerated and Elzy
is taken away after a nicely senti-
mental farewell speech to Lila.
"That is Tenth Avenue as it stands
now. The authors have their idea and
they develop it rathel well during the
first two acts. But the third, which'
has a chance to be smashingly drama-
tic, gather falls down. It needs to be
rewritten, and it undoubtedly will be
before it reaches Chicago.
"The acting is excellent with Louis
Calhern as Guy and William Boyd, of
what Price Glory fame, as Elzy shar-
ing top honors. Edna Hibbard, for
once, has a role that is not at all
raucous. But, because of the lenght
of her speeches and the falseness of
the emotion they express, her char-
acterization is the last satisfying of
the three principals. The part has
possibilities, however, and with the
authors Miss Hibbard is the one to
develop them'."a
