Co-incident with Italy's newly an-
nounced industrial plan whereby each
laborer will forego a portion of his
wages in order that the country's
prosperity may be increased, comes
the announcement that extensive new
air fleet, to be built at great expense,
is planned by the government.
Probably every European country
neels protection of some kind, but
when a nation ostensibly in such
straits economically as Italy spends
money for excessive protection it as-
sumes a rather grotesque position in
.the eyes of the world. Just how much
of an air fleet is necessary to sus-
tain Italy's "position in the Mediter-
ranean" is dubious to the casual on-
looker, but when rigid economy, to
the extent of national suffering is the
keynote of an administration it seems
rather useless to spend vast sums on
an air fleet-especially when there is
no imminent war except one that It-
aly herself may start.
One of the most notable develop-
ments in the field of education in re-
cent years has been the constant
trend toward the use of the summer
session by students. Many schools
have as many as two-thirds of their
winter enrollment in attendance at
their summer courses and the oppor-
tunity to shorten one's college career
and reach a stage of productivity
ealier has been widely used by stu-
Last summer at Michigan there
were over 3,000 students in attend-
ance. Large numbers, of them, of
'course, were teachers taking advant-
age of the summer period to broaden
their training, but an equally large
number were regular students of the'
University taking advantage of the
additional work offered.
There are few, if any, college fac-
ulties that can approach the one at
the University here in the summer,
for, in addition to the exceptional
scholars specially brought here, the
part of the regular faculty remaining
is at a far higher level than the aver-
age, and the smaller classes add still
more to the opportunity for valuable
Still further, the three months of
idleness which the summer means
for some students, seem to be a dull
and uninteresting outlook, there are
few, if any, ways in which the time
could be better spent than by attend-
ing the summer session..

The first straw hat of the season
was reported yesterday. No details
were given by the observer.
The only persons we can imagine
who would be wearing a thing like
that at a time like this are some of
those athletes who raced their way
to victories and straw hats at the
Michigan-Illinois track meet.

At a late hour last night, the Rolls
special investigating committee was
unable to confirm the report that a
straw hat was seen upon the campus.
The investigation is being continued
(A Rolls Feature)
Fired by the knowledge that anyone
expressing a religious preference is
a member of the Student's Christian
association, we made a bold venture
yesterday afternoon. And found there
really is a Lane Hall.
Lane Hall really wasn't so hard
to find, after all. Walking north on
State street, as directed, we found it
was true that there was no possi-
bility of making a mistake.
Rolls Investigator

Hall investigation committee, wivho,
disguised as a student, ventured into
the innermost recesses of the den of
the Student Christian association, and
proved that it is safe for all students.
Standing in front of the building,
we thought it seemed oddly familiar.
Then we remember we had been
there once before, long, long ago. But
of course freshmen can't be expected
to know an better.
Still at the last minute it took a lot
of courage to enter. But a little fel-
low, a meek looking chap, rushed
past us and inside, and after that
display of courage we couldn't hesi-
tate any longer.

Slipping unchallenged past the man
at the desk, idly engaged in trying to
keep busy at something, we gained
the reading room ahd paused for a
rest. Not one of those foreign indi-
viduals, whom we have heard frequent
the place, was in evidence.
* * *
Although a sign said, "New Books,"
we couldn't find "Elmer Gantry" nor
any other such literature. There were
a lot of nice, easy-looking chairs but
we thought maybe they were a trap
or something so didn't stay very

No Opposition Encountered
The whole building was awfully
quiet, and we were afraid that some-
one might jump from an ambush and
attempt to make us contribute to the

Fresh Air fund. But we saw only six
people all the time we were there,
and they all appeared harmless.
* * *0
We searched the building from top
to bottom but did not meet any op.
position. And it is with the utmost
conviction that we are prepared to
state that Lane Hall is an absolutely
safe place for any student.

THIS AFTERNOON: The fifth pro-
gram of the thirty-fourth annual May
Festival at 2:30 o'clock in Hill Audi- I
TONIGHIT: The sixth program of
the Festval at 5 o'clock in Hill Audi-
A Review, By Robert Henderson
I remember her first concert-the
first after her triumph at the Metro-
politan-some four years ago. She had
two arias, one from "Forza del Des-
tino," the other from "Butterfly," and
when they clamored for more she
gave them her vaudeville songs. That
shocked Ann Arbor.
That first time she wore a tight in-
decent black velvet gown, and red, red
lips and a red feather fan. Last sea-
son her gown was a glamorous white
crinoline with ropes and ropes of
pearls. And last night it was black
and red again against glistening black
hair and a white full face and wet
red lips.
Last night Rosa Ponselle furnished
the first million dollar thrill of the
Festival. Like Barre Hill's frock
coat, she had genius that was electric
the moment sie swept on the stage-
for she is a prima donna now, Donna
Maria of the wonderful manner. Her
face, her body, her voice all had a
radiance and luminosity-so warm
and Italian-like a rich squashy kiss
-that was living and throbbing every
moment before its audience.
Her voice always startles one. A
voice that goes straight to its mark,
hits the ear like a gesture. Its sud-
den startling vivacity leaps out at
you now and then like a red bird out
of the shadows; it cuts like a bright
whip across your senses. And finally,
there is over everything a feeling for
the theatric and a certain droll
pungency of intelligence.
The poet, the musician, the painter
and the saint, all whose lives are
possessed with a creative passion for
art, draw life to them by their cap-
acity for it. In them life is gathered,
which in turn is refracted through
their tingling personalities back to
each one of us in the audience.
That is why such artists as Rosa
Ponselle and Sophie Tucker-or Ro-
land Hayes and Sophie Braslau and
Mary Garden and Raquel Meller can
say and sing the simplest things in the
greatest way. And that is why an
artist like Miss Ponselle with such a
God-given gift of song can sweep
aside the importance of even such a
virile work as Host's Choral Sym-
phony and an exquisite interpreta-
tion by Mr. Stock of Deem Taylor's
brittle "Looking Glass" Suite.

A Review, By Robert J. Gessner
How can two weak, mortal fin-
gers pound into a typewriter a des-
cription of the sublime emotion of a
virtuoso, of a passion which received
the greatest applause ever bestowed
upon a May Festival artist in recent
Mme. Lea Luboshutz is a violin
genius. And one always comes to the
end of adjectivjes and exclamation
points when a criticism of genius is
attempted, and yet, after hearing the
Bruch Concerto, as it came from the
bow of Luboshutz, what else is there
to do but restore to superlatives? In
the extremely difficult Concerto she
stands serene, insuperable, th mis-
tress of instrument. The intense
warmth of her passion, the glowing
heat of her emotion characterizes her
masterly style, which in turn gives a
beautiful treatment of phrasing. The
poise and character of melody in the

adagio of the Concerto, the thematicI
material of which is a Spanish dance
rhythm, are examples of a zealous
and impassionate playing.
In the second group of solos Mme.
Luboshutz rendered popular concert
numbers. The Praeludium et Allegro
of Pugnani-Kreisler afforded the vio-
linist an opportunity to display a bold,
vigorous style and a dazzling presen-
tation, which graced her playing with
a perfect balance between deep emo-
tion and fine technique. In Gluck's
Melody a daintiness of execution gave
evidence of a passion always under
control. Mozart's Rondo, with its ex-
ceedingly difficult passages, again evi-
denced a harmonic balance through a
rich and melodic interpretation of
brilliant phrases. And Brahms Waltz
in A Major was done in a sympathetic
understanding, in a womanly interpre-
tation. Two encores-Franz Lehar's
Frasquita Serenade and the Dancing
Doll-were rendered in her character-
istic grace and charm.
Barre Hill is a rich, powerful bari-
tone with exuberant energy. He sang
like one inspired and held his audi-

SATURDAY, MAY 21, 1927

If there is any one thing that the
history of European politics should
have taught to the 'so-called diplo-
mats, it is the fact that ententes are
extremely dangerous, and that any
struggle for the balance of power
leads inevitably to serious conse-
In view of this fact it is queer in-
deed that certain European nations,
disregarding this axiom entirely, in-
sist upon involving themselves in en-
tangling alliances, complicating the
politics of that disturbed continent,
and often leading in the end to cata-
clysms such as the World War.
The latest such inpident is the new
agreement between France and Eng-
land in which France agrees to sup-
port England on her Russian and
Chinese policy, together with the at-
titude of conciliation toward Italy,
England on her part agrees to let
France have a free hand in the Rhine-
land affairs. The agreement in itself
appears to be harmless enough-but
all agreements appear that way at
first, and if it leads ultimately to an-
other great struggle for the balance
of power, as it certainly may, it is
bound to prove disastrous.(
The next logical step that will fol-
low from the Franco-British agree-
ment is a" Russian-German entente.
Then tlere ..will probably ensue a
struggle for the support of Italy and
another mighty set of alignments such
as preceeded the last conflict wi}1
'have been achieved. The only hope
that remains for the peace of Europe'
if suchja situation arises is that the
prestige of the United States, thrown
on the side of peace, will be adequate.
to stave otf the conflagration.
It is to be hoped', of course, that
this great pair of alliances will never I
develop, and that some common basis
of harmony will be attained in Eu-
rope. Certainly our nation will be
extremely reluctant to enter any war,
as it should be, and will never
enter any such alliances. If the na-
tions of Europe and of the world

To The Editor:
The customary procedure for a well-
meaning editor to adopt concerning
such an outburst as that of the El-
derly Freshman in condemnation of
my supposed reviews of "The Captive"
and "Trelawney of the Wells" would
be- to maintain a dignified silence-or
at least approximate it. However,
the humor of the incident warrants
some expression, apd at the same time
there are several false impressions of
policy that merit correction.
In the first place I did not write
either the review of "The Captive" or
"Trelawney of the Wells" appearing in
my column; although this minimizes
in the argument, for in the second
instance at least I heartily agree with
the critic. Merely because Mr. Tyler
collected a galaxy of names to play
Trelawney is no reason why blind
obeisance should be made. As to
"The Captive" I can neither agree of
disagree with the production (al-
though the play itself seems com-
mendable) because I have never seen
it. The article appearing was written
by another person under a by-line of
his own name.
However, this does not refute his
major argument concerning the policy
of the column in general. It seems
a chronic opinion that campus pro-
ductions should be regarded in the
same light as the professional ap-
pearance of road companies either at
the Whitney or Detroit. This is not
what I have attempted to do during
the past year, since these productions
are on an entirely different level. With
this standard in mind, however, I have
criticized the local dramatic ventures
according to the excellence of the
play and the cast appearing. Con-
cerning "R. U. R." (which I consid-
ered excellent except for the epilotue
.which is best forgotten) the fact that
an entirely masculine cast was play-
ing, must be taken into consideration,
and precludes all attempt to judge it
in the same light of Trelawney.
As for The Rockford Players sea-
son, while professional in a sense, it
was given by the Players at cost for
the benefit of The Women's League-,
a fact which was recognized in the I
