affairs. The future of the United
States in initiating and maintaining
world problems depends upon its rep-
resentatives. And in the near future
its representatives will be these dele-
gates. They should be picked with
great care.
I. f
Great achievements are rarely ac-
complished in a sensational blaze of
glory, and the fact that the results
are not immediate and flashy does not
mean that the deed lacks worthiness.
This law is immutable, whether in the
world in general or on the college
campus, and the latest demonstration
of its working is the 1927 Michigan
yearbook-the Michiganensian.
The members of the staff have spent
much time in the preparation of the
book. They have given the Univer-
sity, as is generally admitted, one of
the finest annuals it has ever had.
Their work has been not so much the
introduction of new features as the
improvement of the established ones,
though both ends have been accom-
plished; and the result is very sat-
The glory that is theirs is short
lived indeed. Their book, embodying
a year's work, can appea but once.
In a week or two the 'Ensians will
be placed on their shelves, to be used
only for fond reminiscenceand recol-
lection. The work of this year's staff
is done, and in addition to what ap-
preciation may now be expressed,
they will always have the satisfaction
of a job well done.
For many years the colleges and
universities of the East, bound by a
rigid tradition, have resisted any
forces that tended toward a combina-
tion into an athletic conference sim-
ilar to the Big Ten. Harvard, Yale,
and Princeton, with a sort of super-
ficial snobbery, were the principal an-
tagonists of the scheme, pointing out
that the prestige of their annual bat-
tles would be minimized if six or
seven other schools were allowed to
compete with them.
Now conditions have changed, how-
ever, and the Princeton-Harvard rel-
ations have been suspended. In re-
cent years a basketball conference of
ten teams has been formed and has
functioned with great success among
the eastern teams; and within the
past week a director, something in
the nature of Major Griffiths of the
Western Conference, has been ap-
pointed by a group of eastern univer-
sities to appoint officials for their
football games.
All of these steps show a tendency
towards a single goal-an eastern con-
ference. They show that th prin-
ciple of organization in athletics is
sound and natural; and they are en-
couraging, because they mark the
first recognition on the part o the
East of a principle which has long
been eminently successful in the
The Big Ten, the Missouri Valley
conference, and the Pacific coast or-
ganization of colleges have all been
successful to a notable degree. The
handwriting on the wall seems to
point to a similar plan for the East;
and if that section can overcome cer-
tain narrow prejudices, and take on
a broader, view of intercollegiate
competition, the existence of an
Eastern conference, furnishing to its
members the advantages enjoyed by
the present organizations, is in the
not too distant future.

There may or may not be anything
of significance in the fact that the
seniors of the College of the City of
New York have denounced military
training as "utterly, irrevocably, and
asininely useless;" but if the reflec-
tion of popular opinion is any criterr
ion, it certainly is significant, and
immensely so.
Without launching into a technical
discussion of the value of military1
training at all, it is obvious that
training which is entered with such
a spirit as that is useless, -whether
it be the finest thing in the world
or not.
There are two parts to every edu-
cational process, the instructive and
the receptive, and if the will to re-
ceive and benefit is not there the
course fails. If this state has arisen
in connection with compulsory mili-
tary training, in New York or any-,

And there really was a Cap Night
program after all.


* * *
Tradition could not be downed. And
even thoug-h the Cap Night address
came to us through the medium of
our own Daily, we wish to express
our appreciation to Dean Cocley for
completing that traditional event.
* * *
Student councilmen were jubilant
over the reception of their Cap Night
program by the campus yesterday.
"We planned it as a surprise," was
their statement. "We thought theI
sti.dents would appreciate it move un-i
"cr such circumstances Our obliga-
iior. to the ^tudent body is a duty
we cannot shirk, excep temporarily
N"lien we have something else to at-
l od to."

Yes, sir, you can always depend
on those council boys. And The
Daily will always back them right up,
too--even to printing their alibis.
Lantern night will be h1ld as usual
this year, according to the ladies inj
charge. Evidently they aren't taking
any chances by turning it over to the
Student Council.
We were hoping that they would
let the women have charge of Cap
Night next year. But now that the
Council has showed how much hiter-
est it really takes in student aaffirs,
perhaps it should be given another
After all, this plan of speeches via

It ought to be developed.;

Graduation would be a wonderful
opportunity for a test. All that would
be necessary for the exercise would
be a circular letter.
If anyone wanted to see what the
seniors look like, he could borrow an
'Ensian. To make the exercises more
formal the diplomas could be mailed
under special cover. . The diploma
fee would have to be raised a couple
of cents to provide for the postage,
but maybe the seniors could do with-
out caps and gowns. That would
make up the extra expense, and per-
haps leave enough for a special de-
livery stamp.

A Review, By Vincent Wall AT GRAHAM'S =
Divorced from the pageantry and
glamour that surrounds the actual
production, "Carmen" became last
night a ponderous succession of arias -mae_
for the principals. The opus itself
is one of the most lyrical in opera; w illtheof
there are none of the broad sweeping O U I n
phrases of tragedy that are expected w
in Verdi, Poncielli, Gounod or Wag-
ner. It remains flippantly gay and a sterens"
sad to the end-and is always'a lovely
piece of theatre, closely knit in for exams. Why not get the use of it now?

Night Editor -NELSON J. SMITH, Jr.
The achievejnent of Captain Charles
Lindbergh, youthful airtmail flyer, in
flying from New York to Paris in a
non-stop flight of 36 hours, deserves
to be acclaimed by all people who ap-
preciate the daring, and the romance
of modern life and progress. He made
an actuality of a thing that has been
the talk of aviators for the, past two
years-the conquering of the vast
spaces of open water between the
eastern and western hemisphere. ,
The accomplishment is interesting
both as a romantic feat and for its
future commercial possibilities. With
the development of the inter-conti-
nental telephone service and regular
aerial passenger and freight routes,
contact between the two continents
will become a more intimate thing.
Speedy airplane transportation can
unite the two continents as closely as
various parts of the United States, and
the feeling between them may be ac-
cordingly strengthened. The flight
marks the alliance of romance with
unforeseen possibilities for the fu-

That was a royal outburst that came
from our abused contemporary on the
right in campus opinion yesterday
morning. We've always been a little

of well-balanced climaxes.
The name-role is always a tempest
in tea pot, and is the most graceful
in grand opera. Sophie Braslau in-,
vested it with every shred of emotion
. that could be forced into a concert
interpretation. This in combination
with a voice that possesses a brilliant
range of florid beauty leaves nothing
to be desired-except the actual per-
But despite the fact that every so-
prano and contralto in the business
would sell her soul for the part, it
is a m st difficult role. , It was writ-
ten at a time when a diva was ex-
pected to do Donna Anna one night
and Lucia the next; to be followed
by Brunhilde or Queen of the night.
And all the famous Carmens for
years have been of the Patti, Luca,
Calve and Ferrar (how people damned
her when she actually bit Manuelita!)
and now Bori and Garden.
Other than Braslau in her singing
of theHabanera, Tibbett's sonorous
and warm baritone seemed o inter-
pret most truly the nuances and
feeling o the scor:e; he almost freed
the Toreador song from the incubus
of the language, and if he nadn't
been badly covered by .the orchestra
would have stopped the show. Ar-
mand Tokatyan, the tenor, was con-
sistently good and awful; never on
pitch except when he was forcing his
voice, he was almost given an ova-
tion an almost unbelievably fine ren-
dering of the duet in the third act.
James Wolfe did nothing rather well.
As for,the rest, considerable shouting
was done on all sides, except from
Lois Johnston, whose Micaela was ex-
cellent. In shrt, while not perfect
in all departments, and suffering in
a loss of the vivid action and color of
an actual presen'ation. "Carmen" -was
both adequate a.nd stimulating-a fit
program to close an excellent and in-
teresting Festival.
A Review, By Philip C. Brooks
Thanks to the superb conducting
of Mr. Frederick Stock, who holds
his orchestra down masterfully to
give the solo artist the best possible
opportunity, Ernest Hutcheson estab-
lished himself favorably with his first
Ann Arbor audience, showing an
amazing though far from ostentatibus
technique, a pleasing naturalness, and
a most agreeable sincerity of inter-
Mr. Hutcheson had for his vehicle
a remarkable work, for Beethoven in
his E major concerto created a mag-
nificently beautiful affair - the nu-
merous brief impressive passages in
the first movement-the fervent mel-
odic grandeur of the Adagio-the vig-
ourously inspiring Rondo-all com-
bined to make an admirable impres-
Those ,who consider the Schubert
Symphony the finest orchestral work
of the Festival have ample grounds
for their opinion. The extensively
developed melodies, t h e striking
rhythmic sequence, and the animation
pervading the entire symphony and
making it. at times like a fairy dance,
when interpreted as the Chicago Sym-
phony does them, would convince any-
body. Schubert takes an' entire or-
chestra through the most dexterous
passages as gracefully as if he were-
handling a single finely controlled in-
strument. And it is again thanks to
Mr. Stock that such an impression is
gained, for he handles his group with
a skill that enables i4 to do the most
difficult works and maintain its high
standards. Mr. Stock appears to feel
and enjoy the spirit of his work in-
tensely. There is evident an admir-

able sincerity, on which is superim-
posed the suave grandeur of a master
Offsetting the two rIore convention-

orchestra do it before, and the fantasy
appeared even more than before
