the League of Nations is building the
machinery and the tradition which
will some day loon, as a mighty ob-
stacle in the way of fiternational
Whatever our opinion of the proper
stand for the United States to take
may be, we ennot deny that the
League of Nations has at worst done
no harm, and that it stands now in
such a position that it looms larger
and larger in the field of international
Transer -of innumerable engineer-
ing projects undertaken regularly by
the government to a single department
is the crux of a plan submitted recent-
ly by the American Engineering coun-
cil, and looked on favorably by Secre-
taries Hoover and Work. It is recom-
mended that the management of all
such problems he placed under an as-
sistant Secretary of the Interior to
advance the ends of efficiency and
Several incongruities now evident
in the present makeup would be elimi-
nated by the plan. Some of these are
the present supervision of public
roads by the Department of Agricul-
ture, supervision of architecture by
the Treasury department, the board of
engineers for rivers and harbors and
the Alaska telephone and telegraph
system from the War department.
Many of the present arrangements are
heirlooms from the past, when the in-
terests of transportation were tied up
with the advancement of agriculture.
They not only add confusion to the
average citizen but waste large sums
of money through complicated appro-
priations. Practical management de-
mands a simpler and more economical
The recent announcement by Henry
Wickham Steed, owner and publisher
of the London Review of Reviews and
former editor of the London Times to
the effect that England will indulge
in no naval rivalry with the United
States or any other'nation is a state-
ment worthy of profound notice.
The English government, like any
government, depends after all on the
people, and when a leader of popular
thought, the owner of one of the most
powerful political mediums in Eng-
land, is willing to state definitely that
there will be no rivalry it should put
even the fear of Mayor William
Thompson of Chicago to rest on the
subject of the English menace.
The three power naval conference,
to be sure, was a failure on the sur-
face, and we can expect nothing but
failure as long as all parties enter
conferences with the sole idea of hav-
ing their plans.adopted as against the
remainder of the ideas. But the pub-
lic opinion of England will never
stand for any competitive naval build-
ing program any more than will our
own; while good feeling between the
people of America and the people of
Britain, will do more in the long run
to foster international understanding
than the calling of dozens of incon-
clusive conferences.
Annonymous communications will be

To the Editor:
The present automobile situation

has given rise to so many and con-
flicting stories and rumors that can be
set at rest only by a definite and at-
tested answer or set of answers that
we wish to ask, for our own benefit
and, we feel, the benefit of countless
other students likewise interested in
the actual situation, a few brief ques-
tions in the hope that they will be an-
swered by someone in authority, pre-
ferably the man in charge of the en-
forcement of the automobile ruling,
Mr. Emery, or the Dean of Students.
1. Is it true that Mr. Em'ery is
Assistant to the Dean 'of Students,
and not Assistant Dean of Stu-
2. Is It true that disciplinary
measures, to be enforced by the
Office of the Dean of Students,
are being used as a threat in the.
enforcement of the automobile
3. Has the Office of the Dean
of Students disciplinary authority
or is this authority vested in the
Disciplinary Committees of the
various colleges?
4. Is it true that Mr. Emery
has denied students the right to
make appointments with him or
refused consultation when at lib-
erty to grant such requests?
5. Is it true that additional of-
ficers in plain clothes have been

An alarming condition has been
brought to our attention. Girls-our
present dates. our future wives-are
being taught mastery of that dread:
equalizer of humanity-the rifle.
A generation of feminine crime is
in the making. These girls may beI
the forerunners of bobbed-hair ban-I
dits, of rouged husband-murderers, ofI
beskirted soldiers of war. A Chicago-I
like nation of gun-women may be in
* * *
Every day throughout the country
capricious wives eliminate their hus-
bands to make way for new comers.
Divorce is too long and troublesome.
Ruch are the means that are being
taught to our coeds.
Think of this system extended to
our University. Dishwater blondes,
carrying plated revolvers to match as
an effective means of giving boy
friends the gate. Female snipers sta-I
tioned near fraternity houses to pick
off unwitting woman-haters. Coed
marksmen touring the city by horse
and buggy to bag elusive companions.
Everyone can learn, say those who
are teaching this terrible practice.
Think what this means to us. Shall
we continue to allow this alarming
condition to be fostered in our midst?
Now is the time to stamp out this
insidious practice. Automobiles have
been banned because they despoil the
student's time. Liquor has been out-
lawed because it corrupts the stu-
dent's morals. And football seatsI
have been limited because they tempt
the student's pocketbook. What must
we do, now before it is too late, to re-
move this condition that threatens the,
student's most precious possession-
his life.
A couple of weeks ago we attempted
to predict a few football scores. The
result was so disastrous that we de-
cided next time we would leave the
job to someone else.

Great genius often runs in families.
Take, for instance, the Fairbanks
Twins, the Barrymores, the Whoops
sisters, the Dumas (pere et fils) anl
the Katzenjammer Kids. And the sun-
dry famous marital combinations-
the Guitrys, Sacha and Yvonne Prin-
temps; Lynn Fontanne and Alfred
Lunt; Basil Sydney and Mary lis.
In fact this peculiar conjuncriC.L of
artistic temperaments can only be ex-
plained by "the fact that there are
more white horses than there are
.black horses.

When the silken audacities of "On
Approval" are laid away Saturday,
night, the portals of Mimes theater
will not be long dark. For opening
next week Wednesday, Nov. 2, Comedy
club, eldest of the local drama-ven-
dors, will present "Dulcy," George
Kaufman and Marc Connelly's popular
satire. In this piece, the authors of
"Merton of the Movies" ana "Beggari
on Horseback" have written another
diverting comedy, rich with the sly
caricature that one has come to ex-
pect of them. The original produc-
tion, starring Miss Lynee Fontanne,
now with the Theater Guild's troupe
in Chicago, ran a season on Broad-
way; hence the Comedy club is con-
fident of adding another to its list of
hits, which includes "The Last Warn-
ing," acclaimed by the public, "You
Never Can Tell," acclaimed by the
critics, and "Great Catherine," lauded
by both.

Even before the delegates to the
ninth annual University Press club of
Michigan convention arrived in Ann
Arbor, The Daily, in its editorial col-
umns; and those affiliated 'with thel
organization, predicted its greatest1
success. That'this prediction was notr
amiss was confirmed yesterday by9
Prof. John L. Brumm, head of the
journalism department, who as secre-
tary-treasurer, declared, "I regard the
-1927 Press club convention as the
most-successful we have ever held."
The recent convention apparently
accomplished much in more than one
way. As Professor Brumm pointed
out, it served a twofold purpose of re-
vealing more clearly than any of, the
other contentions, that all types of
newspaper men in the state are com-
ing to realize that University training
is the best means toward professional-
izing newspaper practice; and second,
of. bringing the editors of the state in
contact with the University, its pur-
poses and its needs.
But it accomplished more than that.
Members, showed themselves to be
heartily in favor of President Clarence
Cook Little's suggestion that a com-
mittee of members of the Press club
be appointed to meet University offi-
cials in order to make a careful study
of the problem of education for
journalism, especialy as it concerns
Michigan. Were a system to be work-
ed out at Michigan, as a result of this
pending conference, the 1927 conven-
tion would indirectly leave its mark
of a lifetime on all schools and depart-
ments of journalism in the United
The Eighth assembly of the League
of Nations has passed into history,
and all parties adjourned "in har-
mony." To be sure, there was not
much of a sensational nature uncover-
ed in the Geneva meeting this year,
because there was not much of a sen-
sational nature to come before, the
League; but this very lack of sensa-
tionalism; this very quietness in
operation similar to the smoothness
of a perfectly adjusted machine, is one
of the highest tributes that has as yet
been paid to the development of the

Somebody else tried it last week
and were lucky enough to get a few
right. Whereupon they posted the re-
sults, together with a large amount
of self commendation, all over the
Press building. Just when we were
about to mention it, someone came to
our aid.
* * *
Oh Ben-
It's bad enough to be a football
wisenheimer. But when you start
boasting about one lucky week then
it gives murder. These two ducks who
boasted about a 78 per cent average
didn't mention their average the week
before. Ask them about it, Ben, just
ask them. Say, "What does 78 plus
zero divided by two equal, huh?" And
tell the gang what they say. It ought
to be almost as funny as that apology
yesterday iporning.

Michigan's new pep yell, sponsored
by Dean Emery, will on no account be
neglected at the Illinois game, accord-
ing to the University cheerleader who
will accompany the Wolverine repre-
sentation next Saturday.

"We want to show Illinois that, even
though they have had an automobile
ban longer than we have, that we are
just as good students as they - are,"
stated the Michigan leaders.

The managing editor of The Daily,
not approving of certain material that
has been used in this column during
the past few weeks, has suggested
that it would be best to refrain from
further mention of various topics that
have been the subject of numerous
recent comments.
* * *
It is, of course, unfortunate that it
was necessary to call our attention to
this circumstance. It is even more
unfortunate that these topics should
have been such apt subjects for com-
ment. The objections were based
largely upon a charge of loss of dig-
nity. It is most unfortunate that these
subjects need such protection, that
their dignity cannot rise above our
humble assaults.

A review, by R. Leslie Askren.
Most books written today are fairly
easy to review and pleasant, for they
do not matter much as literature and
all that needs to be done is define their
little good points. It is different with
"Jalna." Reviewing in this case be-'
comes depressing, with a sort of baf-
fled anlguish which comes from seeing
a mediocre artist mutilate a beautiful
idea. The review is an epitaph.
Miss De La Roche started her book
with the idea of tracing the develop-
ment of the Whiteoak family. She
created almost a dozen arresting and
powerful characters, and she is her-
self endowed with a style, which,
though simple and clear, is capable
of creating the atmosphere of heavi-

the Atlantic Monthly would like to

That such a result was to be ex-)

are few artists writing today who
seem to be willing to struggle with
their problems of plot and character!
until they have mastered them 'com-

just a show of struggle, and offer itt
-a symbol more than a reality-as i
sacrifice on the altar of their art. In
"Jalna" this laziness is particularly
discouraging, for the Whiteoak family
is not the ordinary kind of a family.
Each character is a vital and tre-
mendous personality, and the family
group so constituted is an immense
