Action of the Interfraternity coun- t
cil in resolving to co-operate with thet
faculty in the plans made for Fresh-
man week is to be highly commended.
The problem of fraternity rushings
during this week is a serious one, and
can be satisafctorily handled onlyt
with the aid of all the houses on thec
campus. As the matter now stands,
rushing may be carried on, providing it
does not interfere with the freshman4
which have been arranged by the Uni-
yersity. -
The interests of the fraternities, as a
well as the freshman, can best be car-
ried out by strict observance of they
policy which has the approval of the
Interfraternity council. If a differen p
attitude is adopted, hardships will be
worked, not only upon the freshmen.
but the houses themselves. Arrange-
;ments have been made to take atten- °
dance at all ofthe activities going onu
for freshmen during the week, an
those entering men who miss the
events on the program will probably
be requested to return home. If thec

To insure the prevention of such a
harmful attitude, it is necessary, not
only that the fraternities co-operate
with the faculty, but also that they
co-operae with each other. If all of
the houses live up to the resolution
made by the Interfraternity council,
there will undoubtedly be little diffi-
culty in keeping rushing within rea-
sonable bounds during Freshman
week. But a few houses, acting as
insurgents, would likely be sufficient
to cause the fraternities, in general, to
deem it necessary to practice rushing
to a deleterious degree. It is to be.
hoped that every fraternity will think
seriously before rushing to an extent
that will interfere Wvith any of the
activities of Freshman week. Certain-
ly the incoming freshmen deserve
such consideration of their best inter-
Three days ago the Board in Control
of Athletics was notified by the Stu-
dent Council that their tentative plan
for the temporary cheering section
with cardboard squares instead of uni-
forms was unsatisfactory to the ,stu-
dent body. They were notified at the
same time that the plan whereby stu-
dents in the cheering sections will be
allowed no extra seats was also un-,
satisfactory to the student body, and
they were advised moreover that theg
students would probably not support
a cheering section under those condi-
tions. *
If the Board in Control of Athletics
has the welfare of the student body 't
at heart, and is sincere about the
cheering section as it certainly should
be sincere, these two protests should .
have caused at least some concern.
It is near the end of the year. Before
the Board has a chance to meet in the
fall the student applications will be inf
and the damage will have been done.
In view of this fact it is not asking
too much of the Board in Control ofc
Athletics to take the matter under ad-:
visement yet this spring. Michigan
students are essentially loyal, and
they desire almost to a man the color-
ful cheering section which was so ad-7
miirably started last fall. They will
support such a section if given ac
chance, as they supported it last fall;-
but the action of the Board in refusing
them their extra seat applications if
they support the section will seriously
strain this loyalty. b
It is time for action; and action :
of a very definite sort. A delay until
next fall will be fatal to the cause of
the cheering section-the uniformed
section that made such an excellent p
appearance in its first trial last fall. t
The question should be taken up by t
the Athletic Association immediately a
if they are to retract the mistake that h
they have made, and Michigan and u
the backers of her teams, sincerely
hope that the blunder will be retract-
ed; for Michigan should have a cheer- .1
ng section, and an effective one.k
At the present time there is under
consideration a plan whereby a course
n the history of the University would
be offered to students, with full.
scholastic credit. On the face of itb
his may seem rather narrow: that an'
educational institution should teach a
ts own history, in somewhat the u
same way as a manufacturing concern
ontracting for its own output or a
publicity agent running his own news-
papers. From a larger standpoint, s
iowever, the case for the course in
Michigan's history is founded on a-
much firmer basis than that.

, The history of the University is theo
story of the rise of one of the greatest-n
of America's educational institutionsc
and the tales of the lives of men whot
ed Michigan to the heights she occu-
pies today are the biographies of
many of America's greatest educa-
ors. To a large extent, and for many.c
years, the history of Michigan would
be the history of state education, and
he story of the founding of this Uni-
versity is the story of the first state
supported university in the world.
Truly the tale of Michigan, and the
steps by which she has achieved the
place she occupies today is not the
ale of a mere university, but a whole
chapter from the history of education, c
and a chapter that is epochal in its
significance. The romance of thet
backwoods university that rose to the
pinnacle of educational institutions is
a course that could well be added to
he curricula here, and one which
would be as worthy of study and atten-
tion as many for which credit is at
present given.
Examinations are expected to cause
heir usual alarming number of nerv-
ous breakdowns; and many will be 1
unable to return to school next fall- I
by professional advice.
It is truly a dull season as far as
crimes and criminals are concerned:

Harry Tillotson, veteran represen-

"We are doing all this solely in the
interests of the students," said Harry
Tillotson yesterday. He would have
continued, but a fit of coughing stop-
ed him.
It's a good thing we didn't have to
be a senior more than once in our"
college career. We couldn't stand it.
Especially the expense.

Artistry-the artistry that belonged
to Ellen Terry, and Tomasso Salvini,
and Constantine Stanislavsky, and
Adelina Patti-calls for the sheerest
sentiment for an appeal-sentiment
that must be combined with a pres-
ence-something that blends atmo-
sphere with a technique and a useful
curiosity. It is on such a diaphanous
fabrication that the entire art of the
theater ;rests. A repudiation shatters
this structure.
It seems to be an accepted function
of criticism to pierce this aura that
surrounds the artist and to present a
keener analysis. It is this that elimi-
nates the doldrums of back water and
brings something constructive and liv-
ing into art. This column has at-
tempted to do this, except in extreme
cases when sentiment has unwittingly
bubbled into such an effervesence as
-my review of Schumann-Heink-
whose art is apparently not so super-
ior to that of certain sloppy colora-
turas and dago tenors.

These are the things which never
die-and yet the old order changeth.
In ' fact this issue of the Music and

present form. Next season youth and
a rational order will break the mould.
The exact nature of the change can-
not be divulged until the initial issue
of next year.

Other than this there is nothing
until the opening of the Rockford
Players save the Senior Girls play
("The Far Away Princess" by Suder-
mann) which is progressing nicely
under the direction of Minna Miller-
the final touch of the master builder.
On .une 27 at 8 o'clock, the rejuven-
ated Sarah Caswell Angell hall will
-be transformed by carto'n settings
(done by Fred Hill, a retiring editor
of the Gargoyle) where medieval lords
and ladies will gallop in burlesque
tapestries after runaway cows and
robins. This -will be for the "Comedy
of Errors" which will be done instead
of "Much Ado About Nothing"-evi-
dently Miss Kearns prefers Adriana
to Nero or Beatrice. For "Gammer
Gurton's Needle" there will be sets in
the manner of the second production
of "Engaged" last year, when Mr.
Hill created pink and plump pigs
browsing among fat puffy clouds.
Other than the students-selected as
regular members of the Players for
the summer season-Robert Wetzel,
who will play Tessman in "Hedda
Gabbler," Aegeon in "The Coomedy of
Errors" and the father in "Hay
Fever"; William Bishop who does the
Dromio of Ephesus in "The Comedy of
Errors"; and Samuel Bonnell whose
parts range from Oscar Fritchie in
"The Butter and Egg Man" to Mr. ,
Knox in "Fanny's First Play"-there
are several others planning profes-
sional or semi-professional engage-
ments. Charles Livingstone is to be
a member of the Gloucester Players
and Phyllis Loughton will be with
Jessie Bonstelle.
* * *
The fortunes of the Music and
Drama column of the Summer Michi-
gan Daily will be under the supervi-
sion of Marion Welles. The activities
of the Rockford Players promise a
season of interest and perhaps some
relief from the usual monotone. There
is a cut of Fanny Brice in the top
drawer of my desk that might be run
for Elsie Herndon Kearns.
The last of the graduation recitals
of the year will be given by Thelma
Lewis, soprano, assisted by Elizabeth
Schwier, pianist, next Tuesday even-
ing-at-.8:15 o'clock in the School of
Music auditorium. Miss Lewis has
appeared in several May Festivals-
as the Youth in last season's
"Lohengrin"-which is something.
She is a pupil of Theodore Harrison,
which is more. She will present the
following program:
Se Florindo e fedele........Scarlatti
O cessate di piagarmi......Scarlatti
Non So piu cosa Son ........Mozart
(from Le Nozze de Figaro)

L'Invitation au Voyage......Duparc
