Of the characteristics of campus
organizations and activities, one of
the most outstanding is the annual ro-
tation of offices which is naturally re-
garded as the student body changes.
This relatively quick succession can
truly be charged with much of the
inefficiency which also features stu-
dent activities.
To be sure, the activities are gen-
erally orgariized on the tryout basis
whereby a student is at least ac-
quainted with the work iivolved for
one or two years before he is placed
in a position of responsibility. Still,
there are many special problems re-
occuring each year which are under-
stood only by the seniors who have

completed their year's work. Ignor-
ant of the appropriate solutions, the
new officers continue to make the
mistakes of their predecessors year
after year. In general, they spend the
entire first semester getting the or-
ganizationas on a working basis.
These conditions are by no means
necessary, but could be obviated by
having the outgoing office holder pre-
pare a written record including an
analysis bf his mistakes and other
helpful hints. Such reports would be
filed year by year so that the officers.
in each activity would soon have a
wealth of information to guide them.
Also, they could be assisted, as they
are now in many cases, with oral
In the activities in which the work
is repetitive only year by year, the
written report would Je particularly
beneficial. .t could also b.e well ap-
plied to 'te,:Student Council, the
Union, the publications, and many
other org*an tions.
Though in some instances, the sen-1
eors occupying important positions
during the last year have already.
made way for the new class, it is
hoped that all who are iii a position
to do so will cooperate in establish-
Ing a greater efficiency in Michigan

the methods the United States has
used in handling the situation.
Our state department, to be sure,
has madatorily ordered peace in the
Central American republic; but even
on the face of it that does not seem
to be such a bad thing. Nicaragua iited
self does not feel nearly so insulted
as Mexico. When Henry L. Stimsor
the American plenipotentiary and ar-
biter, announced his plan for a free
election, the Nicaraguans themselve:
lined the streets and cheered.
A free eection, guaranteed by the
most responsible government in the
world, is not an obnoxious process
even when applied in Central Amer-
ica; and if the Nicaraguans them-
selves can approve, and approve
heartily, it seems that Mexico's pro-
testing remarks are slightly out of
Tonight will see the opening con-
cert of the 34th annual May Festival,
which can truly be said to be Ann
Arbor's greatest musical event. The
growth of the Festival is comparable
to that of the University in that every
year it has brought more and more
brilliance to its performances.
This same growth is all the more
surprising when viewed from the
angle of cultural endeavor. It is well
known that haste and confusion are
the paramount conditions acting
against the smaller and finer things,
when the more material results are
being sought. The last thirty years
have probably seen more of these big
things done for Michigan than at any
other time in her 90 years of exis-
tence. So it is with considerable
pride that Michigan can point as well
to the development along humanistic
lines-of which the May Festival is
so great an example-that has not
only followed but even superseded the
The national significance of the
Festival has assumed larger propor-
tions with each succeeding year, until
it has gradually been impressed upon
the campus that it contains some-
thing worth while for the personal
enjoyment and advantage derived
from attendance. The best artists of
the musical world who have not ap-
peared .in Ann Arbor are very few,
indeed. One of the most famous sm
phonic organizations now in exis-
tence has 'been a regular feature of
th .Festi'val concerts sinc'e their be-
ginning. The monumental choral and
orchestral works which have been ap-
proved by time and many audiences
have all ben presented here, and each
year sees the premiere of one or two
more. All this greatness Js carried
into the University and is car-ried out
again to the world outside, which is
perhaps more significant.
An often unrealized result of the
May Festival, a result which is
grounded deep in the foundations of
Michigan is the appreciative interest
aroused among the student body, an
interest providing additional impetus
behind the cycle of refinement, intel-
ligence ad advancement.

Tradition hung thick about the
campus yesterday. First came the
women, swinging out in their Mortar-

air resounded with the whoops of
braves on the warpath. And then,
bedraggled by the rain, mutilated by
the Student Council, but triumphant
over all came Cap Night.

"At least," muttered the hard-work-
ing councilman officiating at the Cap
Night ceremonies, "they can't blame

THE FRESHMEN aren't the only

come at last. The bestthat can be

see them go.

Earl Moore, Musical Director of the
Festival announces Madame ERNES-
cert of songs; assisted by the Chica-C
go Symphony orchestra, FREDERICKo
STOCK, conductor; and with a
world's premier performance of the
"Heroic Elegy" of HOWARD HAN-
SON, under the baton of the com-
poser. **
Following a successful run of "Ro-
meo and Juliet" in modern dress last
year, Jessie Bonstelle is presenting
"Hamlet" this week, with a possibility
of continuing the production into next
if the Guild members evince sufficient
enthusiasm. For the rest of the sea-
son Miss Bonstelle will adopt the
customary summer policy of oneplay
a week.
For the first part of the week Ham-
let is being shorn of the doublet and
hose of his period, although the latter
part of the week he will be trapped
as usual in the circus vestments of
period costume. The same sets will
be used for both productions.
The revival by Miss Bonsetelle is
particularly pertinent considering the
present attempt which is being made
by the American Shakespeare Found-
ation fund (under the direction of
Professor Baker) to secure funds to
restore the Shakespeare Memorial
theatre at Stratford-on-Avon, Eng-
land. The former Memorial Theatre
was destroyed by fire a year ago, and
the present plans include its restora-
tion as well as endowment for a
Museum, a library and a Dramatic
A review, by Thomas J. Dougall
(Editor's Note: "Marco Millions"
is Eugene O'Neill's last and so far
unprodvuced play, although it will be
done by the Theatreluid early next
fall. It is the only O'Neill piay
which has been published before a
legitimate performance.) ,
"'Thisplay," to quote Eugene O'Neill
in his rather ironic Foreword, "is an
atterp to rqeer p4 tic justice to one
long famous as a traveler, unjustly
world .renowned as a liar, but sadly
unrecognized by posterity in his true
eminence as a man and a citizen-
Marco Polo of Venice."
Beauty and cleverness are the out-
standing characteristics of this latest
opus by America's foremost dramatist.
It is done in his new manner, the
manner of a poet, and it has only its
dramatic sincerity and effectiveness
in common with his former dialectic
dilemmas. Perhaps one cannot say
that there is no poetry in his former
works, but the lyric note of Marco
Millions has certainly never been
sounded before.
There is a Shavian quality in the
treatment of Marco as the big butter
and egg man of Venice, a note de-
cidedly reminiscent of the Man of
Destiny and The Great Catherine.
But there is something more. Shaw
has merely shown us a celebrity in
undress, emotionally speaking, and
while the result is ridiculous and ex-
hiliaratig, it is really only an exhi-
bition of mental acrobatics-more of
Shaw capitalizing on his intelligence.
It is the old problem of whether the
emotils can be divorced from the
intellec. Shaw has undoubtedly done
it and *e murmur "Delicious!" But
O'Neill has not, and I for one would

say "Great!" quite audibly. He has
not given us the comedy of a little'
mind as Shaw would have done, but
has rather written the tragedy of a
small life-the tragedy of a satisfied
man. Perhaps Marco is even more
than that. Perhaps, but only perhaps,
he is a symbol of the complacency of
the world, that smooth, all-conquering
force which breaks ideals and against
which the intelligent beat savagely
and in vain.
Except for the Great God Brown,
Marco Millions, in form and content
,is quite different from any of O'Neill's
other plays. But his approach to life
is lefinitely the same. Life, he
says is so stupid it is mysterious. And
he proves it with savage and revealing
He is always the conscious artist
and his drama has an organic unity
that is amazing in view of the fact
that it -is entirely episodic in its
structure. The play willtake a for-
tune to produce and, even with the
revisions that the author has made,
the Theatre Guild will be extremely,

To The.Editor:
I would like to inquire if any of
the advocates of the extension of
paternalism in the form of depriving
students of this University of the
right to operate gasoline vehicles
have any facts which would answer
these questions:
1. Is the annual death-rate of stu-
dents of the University of Michigan'
through automobile accidents appre-
ciably greater than the annual death-
rate through automobile accidents of
all classes of people in the State of
2. - Is the annual death-rate through
automobile accidents greater for the
students of the University of Michi-
gan than for people of the same age
(and presumbly the same maturity
of judgment) in the state at large?
The arguments for the automobile
ban which are based on recent fatal
accidents seem to me to be inconclu-
sive unless supported by the definite
figures required in answer to the
above questtions. One death does not
make a menace; nor one case a rule.
The Legislature of the State of
Michigan in its great wisdom, which
I gather from last Sunday's Daily to
be quite beyond the reach of super-
latives, has seen fit to, grant to all
persons past the age of fourteen (ex-
cluding those with physical or men-
tal defects) the privilege of operat-'
ing cars. It might possibly be con-
sidered as an- affront to the mature
judgment of the legislature in 'o
doing, were the University to take
the stand that a large class of those
