lower the standard of living for all
Italian laborers in comparison with
those of the rest of the world.
The first result would leave condi-
tions ultimately the same as they are
at present, except that Italy would be
using, a different monetary standard
and there will be considerable pain inC
executing the new scheme. The sec-
ond outcome-that of reducing the
standard of living of the Italian work-
ers, may be desirable from an imme-
diate standpoint of nationalistic pol-
icy, in that it will decrease prices of.
Italy's goods abroad and thereby in-
crease her export business, but in the
long run the age in which we live, and
the state of civilization in general will
revolt at any policy that involves a
lowering of the standard that the
workingman has now attained. .
The experiment of wage reduction
will be an interesting and significant
project, but in any case its chances
of success seem hopeless. It may
achieve the immediate end of reducing
pries of Italy's goods abroad, but for
that end it sacrifices something far
more valuable and worthwhile still-
the standard of living of a nation.
When Mussolini ceases to view ques-
tions of policy from the standpoint of
national gain for the immediate mo-
ment, and commences to look into
the future of civilization, his economic
methods may undergo a sharp revis-
Ninety years ago the people of
Michigan were the first to establish
a state university. From the tiny
beginning that the Ann Arbor school
made in 1837 has grown one of the
world's greatest educational institu-
tions; and since that time nearly
every other state in the Union has fol-
lowed the lead of Michigan.
A broad and generous legislature,
backed by the resources and good will
of a vast commonwealth, has continu-
ously and successfully provided for
the onward march of that University.
Throughout the history of Michigan
education this inspiring foresight and
liberality has made the University of
I today the dream of the men of 1837-
who were the first to see the future.
The latest evidence of this continued
support for education came two days
ago when the legislature passed the
University appropriation bill, raising
the annual revenue from $3,700,000 to
approximately $4,200,000, and provid-
ing for a new wing on Angell hall, a
new elementary school building, and
land for women's dormitories and a
Women's League building besides. Tite
additional funds will enable Michigan
to develop in many fields, such as
forestry and other lines of research,
where she has been handicapped be-
The same foresight and the same
generosity that has lifted higher ed-
ucation in the state to the peak which
it now enjoys, has again manifest
itself in another great constructive
program. Michigan, both student body
and faculty, appreciates the liberal
grants; and the hearty cooperation
of the legislature and the people of
the state, which will do much to in-
sure a greater educational institution.
The Mellon-Churchill debt contro-
versy is apparently closed-by gen-
eral admission of both parties, and
an unedifying dispute between two
supposedly big men theeby ends. To
the casual onlooker it appears re-
markably as though the whole thing
was just another "I did," "You didn't"
schoolboy - controversy, with both
sides partially right.

The near serious consequences
that the affair involved, however,
should not be lost sight of when,
the temptation arises to do the same
thing again. Minor points that- can
be made into great international dis-
putes are lying around loose at all
time. Nations as great as the United
States and England should be far
above such petty arguments.

Anxiously-waiting freshmen will at
last have an opportunity to cast their
insignia of verdance into the flames,
when on Tuesday night, by order of
the Student Council, they will as-
semble to hold a real, honcst-to-good-
ness Cap Night, *
According to the description it al-
most sounds as if there was really
going to be a Cap Night, at least for
the freshmen. But it's the other
classes that we're worrying about. The
seniors were provided for by Swing-
out, but how about the juniors andi
sophomores, who aren't going to be
allowed to attend?
* * *
Without Cap Night, how can the
juniors ever attain the spirit of the
senior class? They may not want to
graduate next year-even those that
have the -chance.'
* * *
"Too many things to handle kept us
from arranging a Cap Night pro-
gram," explained members of the Stu-
dent Council yesterday. "We simply
had to give all our time to the elec-
tion. Of course we want to preserve
1raditions, but important matters
must come first."
* * *
Rolls will hold its own Cap Night
program for the benefit of the upper-
classmen excluded from the affair
sponsored by the Student Council, by
the terms of a special arrangement
with that body. No effort will be
spared to make this as nearly
as possible like the traditional event.
* * *
Due to lack of practice in handling
such matters, we have nQt been able
to decide upon a date as yet. Per-
haps if we can stop imitating the
Council and get down to business, we
may be able to accomplish a little
However we have decided upon
many of the details. Ferry field has
beeen chosen as the location. The
stadium will be used, so as to give
the appearance of Sleepy ,Hollow. It
will be much more comfort.ble.
* * *
As Harry Tillotson is not expected
to be present, there will probably be
plenty of seats available.
* *, *
In order to be allowed to use
the field we had to make a number of
concessions. To protect the grass and
playing field, the Ann Arbor police
force will be on hand to keep every-
body in the stands. Protection of
the field against the policemen will al-
so be provided.

It has been the pat and proud con-
ceit of the Music and Drama column I
during the past three years that the'
reviews and press notices have been
free from prejudice, and that candid
judgment was rendered in the case of
whatever entertainment was at hand.
And more: that when we have under-
taken to beat the drum for any mu-
sical or dramatic event, it was both.
worthy and exceptional in the field.j
The Rockford Players are doing
sold-out business after almost two
weeks of repertory; the Mimes season
was an extraordinary success-(dra-
matically and financially); Roland
Hayes and Fritz Kreisler packed
Hill auditorium; and Mrs. Fiske and
Glenn Hunter played to capacity In
the Whitney-which is exceptional
for a legitimate attraction.
It is with this in mind that your
attention is called to the May Festi-
val, which will be presented under
the direction of Earl Moore from
Wednesday through Saturday of this
week, with Friday ands Saturday mat-
inee concerts. For once the egotis-
tical tooting in the dodger with its
biattant nosegays is perfectly true.

SUNDAY, MAY 15, 1927
Night Editor--G. THOMAS McKEAN
Michigan has lost a great person-
ality and a great scholar-the second
within a week-with the passing of
Prof. Francis W. Kelsey. A man'
who has .made a mark in two fields,
and who has carried the prestige of
Michigan to the far off ruins of Afri-
ca, has passed from the life of the
school he served for 38 years.
Academic honors in the field of ed-
ucation have been lavishly bestowed
on the great atrhaeologist. Two lead-
ing -societies of scientists and edu-
cators, the American Philological As-
sociation and the Archaeological In-
stitute of America have given him the
highest honor within their power to
bestow-the presidency.
But purely academic honors, how-
s ever significant, are hollow compared
with the great influence that Profes-
sor Kelsey, the man, wielded over
Michigan. The great intangible spirit
of a University, the spirit that gives
it traditions., nd commands rever-
ence, is embodied in the persons of
the older members of the faculty.
This invaluable spirit which befriends
a forlorn "student or encourages the
discouraged one is worth more in the
lives of men than all the ribbons of
professional reward. Prestige and
recognition, to .be sure, Professor
Kelsey brought to Michigan, but
when others have carried on the work
that lie left unfinished, there still will
be a gap-the gap of a great and good
Premier Mussolini has another idea,
and :ike most of the ideas that the
gentleman has had in recent years, it
will be tried. From babies' names to

A fire for the pots is out of the
question because' of injury to the
field. But imitation flames made out
of red lights could easily be arranged.
Then the pots could be deposited in a
basket, and saved until next year,
when they could be sold for the bene-
fit of the Women's League fund.
* * *
For the freshmen who must have
their tradition straight, an incine-
rator will be provided.
* * *
Since this is an upperclass affair,I
freshmen could not be admitted. ButN
in order to preserve the spirit, repre-
sentative freshmen could be selected,
to carry the pots of their classmates
to the fire.
* * *
Much controversy has arisen over
the elimination of Sleepy Hollow' as
the scene of Michigan's most pic-
turesque traditional event. The en-
gineering college is blamed.
* *.*
It seems that Sleepy hollow is the
testing ground for the embryo sur-
veyors. To make things more real-
istic, a dense and tall growth of
grass has been allowed to accumulate.
j And so they protested, rather than al-
low their grounds to be spoiled by the
trampling mob.
Neil Staebler, prominent memberl
of last year's senior class, is said to

gram Which Mr. Moore has yet!

Arbor as the culmination of her fif-
tieth season on the concert stage-
a Golden-Jubilee season which in-
cluded a national tour with over
thirty concerts as well as appear-
ances as the guest-artist in the Met-
ropolitan annual matinees of the
Wagnerian cycle.
ROSA PONSELLE is the Metropoli-
tan's greatest dramatic soprano,
with the possible exception of Jeritza.
Her Vestale was one of the sensations
of last season and her recitals with
her sister (Carmela Ponselle, a mezzo
soprano at the Metropolitan) are' the
most popular in concert-going New
York. Her voice is one of the best
in Gatti-Casazza's ranks, and she is
beautiful in a vivid and exotic way:
black hair, the reddest lips, and a face
of a Rafael maddona.
LAWRENCE TIBBET was the sen-
sation of the Festival two years ago,
his engagement in Ann Arbor coming
shortly after his Metropolitan success
in Falstaff. He possesses one of the
best baritone voices in opera, as his
seasonal appearance' as King Eadgar
in "The King's Henchman" (the Mil-
ler-Taylor opera which totally
eclipsed Puccini's unfortunate post-
humous opus "Turandot") has proved.
SOPHIE BRASLAU - another con-
tralto-will sing "Carmen" on Satur-
day night. Miss Braslau, an Ameri-
can Jowess, is almost as beautiful as
Ithe Pizella portrait that she uses for
her padvertising. After her recital two
years ago in the Choral Union series
and the School of Music said she
wouldn't be singing in five years-it
is strange how things may twist so
easily into an unwilling boomerang!
LEA LUBOSHUTZ is not so well
know in America except for her
Sonata recitals with Josef Hofmann,
the plianit. She is a Russian, who is
popular on the continent, and who
was a. small sensation in a New York
recital two years ago.I
is an American, rather famous as a
teacher and as an interpretive artist;

To The Editor:
It is interesting to read Miss Mill-
er's review of "The.Green Goddess" in
yesterday's Music and Drama column;
it is so amusing to an outsider to
watch one actor reviewing another, be
he amateur or professional. Intimacy,
they say, breeds a certain candor. Miss
Miller's classification of the part of
Watkins with sundry supers suggests
that at some time Mr. Henderson may
not have admired Miss Miller's work.j
It is always fascinating to note
what happens when reviewer turns
actor. Nevertheless, Mr. Henderson's
