If any further proof was needed in
support of the point that scientific ex-
perts have no place in politics, or
even ,in the scientific departments of
politics, is has" been furnished recently
with the dismissal of Leigh J. Young
as State Director of Conservation.
Through is years of service at the
University iere Professor Young has
gained a national reputation in the
fields of forestry and conservation.
He has been a leader in many projects
for the welfare of the wild life of this
and other states, and with his appoint-
ment a year ago to the office of con-
servation director it appeared for a
moment that a new era had dawned
in politics, and that the vote getting
moron was to be displaced by a regime
of intelligence and progress.
Immediately upon his accession to
office the conservatio n commission
undertook several new projects, re-
versing in some cases the decisions

of the previous commission. But these
reverses certainly cannot' be held
against the administrator, when the
conservation department had for
years been a 'political sinecure, and
the whole state administration had
Then recently. James Oliver Cur-
wood died, and in his place Governor
Fred Green appointed to the commis-
sion Harry Whitely. Under the lead-
ership of several good business men
on the State Conservation commis-
sion, several of the previously made
decisions were reversed, .some of
them against the advice of Mr. Young.
It 'is these reverses combined with
previous disparity with the adminis-
tration policy, that has lead to the
dismissal of the director. There have
been no other charges levied against
There are several interesting points
which can be brought up in this con-
nection, and all. of them involve Gov-
ernor Green. So far that executive
has not committed himself as to the
reason for'the discharge, but obvious-
ly the reason must be one of two
facts: either Governor Green dis-
missed Mr. Young because the latter
failed to agree with him on the con-
servation policy, or else Governor
Green dismissed Mr. Young because
the latter did agree with him and
was unable to carry through the poli-
aie which' thev both desired. ;

weight Ina conservation project.
If the second case is true, then Gov-
ernor Green has failed miserably In
appointing members to the conserva-
tion commission who would be able to
cooperate with the executive he has
chosen. In either case it looks as
though tne blame falls directly upon
the state's chief executive, and not
upon Mr. Young.
Finally, however, the loss of the
state is the gain of the University. If
Professor Young continues his work
here which lie so ably started before
his leave for the state post, the Uni-
versity should be extremely grateful
for the set of circumstances that re-
turns him to us.
Members of the Michigan State col-
lege committee in charge of the edu-
cational activities of radio station
KAR, the college broadcating station,
are now said to be considering the
possibilities of extending their work
to include instruction in certain edu-
cational work.1
This is not the first time that the
possibilities of conducting courses by
radio has been considered by educa-
tors in this country. Several stations
during the past few years, since the
inception of the radio, have given
courses by that means. In no case
has the result been highly successful,
but in justice to the experiment it
should be said that it has been diffi-
cult to check up on the outcome of
such an innovation because of the
widely scattered and inestimable radio
Generally speaking, nearly all col-
lege stations are disseminating edu-
cation in one way or another; talks
given by college officials over the air
in the majority of the cases deal with
something in the nature of education.
Exemplary of this are the various
radio speeches broadcast last year
by the University of Michigan, through
station WWJ. In this case evidence
of their popularity was not lacking,
thousands of requests for pamphlets
containing the speeches being receiv-
ed and mailed out.
Obviously, the time is not far away,
when, if the radio is not used more
extensively for this purpose, this new
phase of its use will be thoroughly
tried out. In connection with their
plan, Michigan State college officials
will canvass parts of the state to find
out whether or not education by radio
is "desired." The result should be
well worth observing.
Of all the sore spots left by the
World war, none has been more pain-
ful and more insistent than the ques-
tion of the Allied debts owed to the
United States. The question, in-
volving as it does the double compli-
cation of sentimental attachment and'
business common sense, has perturb-
ed all of the victorious nations to
some degree since the final issue of the
War, and at the present time the
French government, is again ap-
proaching the United States with a
proposal to reopen negotiations.
On the face of it the sentimental ap-
peal of a nation which has lost heavily
in the lives of soldiers and the de-
struction of property has a strong
voice; but on closer examination the
appeal of France is about the same
as the appeal of prison reformers
who hold up the admittedly pathetic
side of the picture for the world to

see, while deliberately hiding the cold3
facts which would lead to a rational
After all, the decision reached at
present is about as fair as could be
found. To cancel the war debts would
undermine international credit, and
would form a precedent that might
react very very harshly to France
and England if another European war
breaks out. Still, to press for im-
mediate payment would be similarlyl
unfair, and the present compromise
agreement, emphasizing a whole-
hearted consideration on the part of
the United States is certainly liberal.
Then, in conclusion, the situation
which supports the case of France is
not nearly so conclusive as it was five
years, or even a year ago. In the in-
terim the French national revenue
has mounted to a point 9,000,000,000
francs above France's estimated ex-
penditures, and the British have found
it unnecessary to utilize any part of a
$100,000,000 credit extended to them by
New York banks. Recently, also, the,
Federal Reserve system has reduced
the rediscount rate, which will in-
evitably drive American capital into
Europe, and help immensely to stabi-
lize industry there.
Throughout the war, in supplies,
men, and munitions, America gave
unstintingly in a cause which was es-
sentially European. She provided

To the Editor:
President Clarence Cook Little in
Thursday's Daily stated emphatically,
in reference to the Adelphi debate
Tuesday night, that such a discussion
is "one thing that shows that it is a
good idea to continue the present
rule.". I am not interested in his be-
lief of misinformation of data used- by
the debaters who upheld the conten-
tion that the ban is unjust. Such be-
liefs will be adequately answered by
the gentleman who was supposed to
have uttered them.
But concerning the belief of the
President that the "small" attendance
at Adelphi "shows a lack of interest
in the question," much can be said.
In fact, if he had come up to Adelphi
llast Tuesday evening he could not
have gained admittance as every chair
was occupied. The largest number of
visitors that ever attended a discus-
sion of Adelphi was the crowd that
made their appearance last Tuesday,
and this in spite of the student's dis-
inclination to climb four flights of
steps. Also the campus knows that
the Adelphi room is not any larger
than a classroom and hence can not
accommodate everybody who desires
to ,attend, The banning of autos has
made the students conserve on walk-
ing and count each precious step so
that many students are not inclined
to climb four flights of steps with the
hope of finding a seat in a room that
can only hold a very small percentage
of the students desiring admittance.
But let the President give Adelphi the
use of Natural Science auditorium and
we will guarantee a capacity audi-
ence, and even then he might have to
stand up..
The fact is that the interest on the
campus concerning the auto ban is
just' as heated as that day last sum-
mer when we were informed that cars
will be prohibited at Michigan. Let
the President realize that the campus
is discussing the ban, and that the
campus is desiring some sort of ac-
tion, which we hope will come soon.
-Robert J. Gessner, '29.
To the Editor:
Adelphi's Bills Committee feels
forced to write a reply to President
Little's newspaper comments on the
auto-ban debate held last Tuesday
evening. The President's charges of
misinformation are based in turn
upon his own misinformation. He
charges Gerald O. Dykstra, '30L, who
opposed the ban, with using inac-
curate data and making statements
that are untrue. His opinions are
based entirely upon the article ap-
pearing in The Daily the morning
after the debate, which was am-
biguously stated so as to lead to a
misrepresentation of the facts. Of
course it is not expected that Dr.
Little should make it a point to at-
tend the Adelphi debates, and so not
being there he did not know that the
accident Dykstra referred to was not
the one involving the five students,
but rather the one involving the pres-
ident of last year's Senior class, The
facts that Dykstra stated in the de-
bate are still the facts concerning the
Maentz case. Namely, that he, because
of injuries from the accident, is not
in school this year, but at home, out-
side the jurisdiction of this ban, and
driving a beautiful LaSalle, while we
who are back in school, because of the
ban which his and other accidents
brought upon us, have to walk.
The Adelphi Bills Commmittee ad-

mits, in justice to President Little,
that the excerpt in The Daily would
naturally lead one to believe that the
other accident was meant. But the
committee does feel that it was
much too general to warrant the Pres-
ident's charges against Dykstra, which
he knew would appear before some
25,000 readers of the Times-News and
The Daily. We, admit that misinfor-,
mation is to be greatly depreciated.
However, an opponent: of the auto
ban does not seem to be the guilty
party this time.

To the Editor:
Since my name has been drawn into
the discussion of Freshman Week, I
should appreciate the opportunity to
say, through The Daily, that those of
us who were responsibe for the pro- I
gram are fully aware of its defects 1
and welcome constructive criticism.
The unwillingneq of the upperclass-
men to lend a helping hand and the.
obstructive efforts were, of course,
disappointing. It seems to me that

TONI0HT: Benamino Gigli, tenor,
and Edythe Browning, soprano, will
present the first program of the
Choral Union Concert series at 8
o'clock in Hill auditorium.
TONIGHT: The Mimes present "The
Bad Man" In their theater at 8:30
(Editor's Note: This is the last of
the reviews of "The Bad Man" to be
published in this column, although the
play will continue at the Mimes thea-
ter through Saturday night.)
In competition to Dr. Yost's pet
pastime, Dr. Shuter's program, of
"dramatics for all" has taken hold
with a vengeance, with Porter Emer-
son Browne's "The Bad Man" as its
initial activity. The enthusiasm
would seem to be larger in proportion
than even that in speedball, if ap-
plause and curtain calls are any cri-
teria. Certainly the melodrama of the
Southwest is not the best thing that
Mimes have ever done, but within the
limited vision that is available, it is
safe to say that it is the most enter-
taining work of the last three years.
Most of the strong spots have been
lauded and the weak ones pounced
upon at this writing, but there are
still a few things unsaid, dealing
chiefly with the latter. Lymie Crane
has been alternately' sniffed at and
designated as weak, whereas he
should have had a large bouquet of
sympathy: His is one of those parts
giving nothing and taking a lot, and
in the end putting their speaker in a
rather asinine light despite all the
exertion in the world. What is meant
is that while others in the cast burst
on and glided off in their respective
flashes-or splashes-of color and
I character, he was usually left on the
boards to stand on one foot and look
handsome. Quite a difficult predict-
ment, but one filled very patiently by
Then there was Mary Louise Mur-
ray who threw away that jewel of
great 'price-to a co-ed, to-wit: dig-
nity. There are not many so posessed
of all the essentials who would con-
sent to be ibounced around like Bus-
ter Keaton, and all for the sake of
art. But then she bounced so nicely
and every one thought it was great
It is still a problem to most of us
how Pedro's bullet that was delivered
point blang managed to bounce off
Bud Kleutgen at such an angle as to
inflict a scalp wound. But that is
one of the vagaries of melodrama,
and it might-have hit an air-pocket.
These last few lines are a unani-
mous ballot for the mixed cast reform
as it seems to have struck the local
guild. There is only one of the fu-
ture prospects that we would care to
see put on by whisker crew, and that
is Uncle Tom's Cabin. Charley Liv-
ingstone would make a great Eliza.

Of the new plays opening last week
in New York, the most talked of seem-
ed to be "The Letter," at the Morosco,
which J. Brooks Atkinson of The
Times sums up as follows: "Somerset
Maugham, as author, and Katherine
Cornell, as featured player, manage
to piece together an engrossing melo-
drama." Which, if somewhat non-
committal, insinuates-and judging
from Alexander Woollcott's review in
The World it is true-that Miss Cor-
nell did some very fine work, and that
the play while not exceptional is ade-
S* * *
"Creoles" at the Kaw theater, is
described by Anderson of The Post:
"M'sieu Herndon had us all in New

Orleans....with Pirates of 1850 and
similar adjuncts of a play called
"Creoles'' by Samuel Shipman and
Kenneth Perkins. Though it contain-
ed ..... Helen Chandler and some
opulent scenery by Norman Bel-Ged-
des, it is a fancy bore, pretentious
and uninteresting." Most of Mr. An-
derson's: ,critical colleagues agreed
that the ,play won't last long. How-
ever, tie Princess Matchabelli, whom
you ma remember as one of the two
rnadonnas Morris Gest imported for
The Miracle," is in the cast.
"The 'Garden of Eden" at the Selwyn
is, according to The World, "a highly
theatrical fib, from the German scrap
book of Avery Hopwood." Mr. Hop-
wood who was once a demon bedroom
farce carpenter, lives up to his reputa-
tion with some very*'shocking scenes
in the second act, but despitesthis,
and the fact that the play was given
more publicity per cubic inch than
any show in years, it is expected to
flop rather quickly.
