Two new projects of engineering re-
search are about to be launched in
the engineering department, following
gifts for that purpose. from private
sources. Both stateand national gas
associations have cntributed funds
from separate sources with which the
work may be advanced,. in order that
the part that gas is at present play-
ing in modern industry may be en-
larged and developed. Already a
graduate of the University has been
selected as special research investi-
Except for those whose departmen-
tal interests have led them to the par-
ticular engineering fleld here affected,
there are comparatively few on the
campus to whom the launching of any
such project has significance. It is just
another activity in that building on
the west side of the campus, nothing
more. But there are factors in this1
worthy of at least: }self-congratula-

tion, for they clearly point that the
University has scored again. Exten-
sion publicity service regarding en-;
gineering research .has been spread
during the last year, and the two gifts
received can be traced almost directly
to such activity.
Secondly, the appointment of a1
graduate of the local department to
the post of investigator is indicativer
of the character of the foundations
that have been laid in the past, and
of a field that is somewhat new.-
Although ,the campus at large is not
vitally interested in research, it would
seem that business men and profes-
sional engineers are. Incidentally this
may be taken to prove that the phys-
ical education department is not thel
only one in the University that can
return its products where they began1
in the capacity of leaders rather thant
Of interest and importance to aero-
nautical engineers, instructors andc
students of aviation and airplanec
manufacturers, as well as to the gen-
eral public of cities considered as
possible airports, will be the confer-!
ence on civil aviation to be held in I

plane industry. An extensive program
has been prepared which will consider
air commerce regulations, aviation
schools, airports and other aeronauti-
cal questions of increasing import-
Recognizing the tremendous part
aviation and air commerce is presag-
ed to play in the future, the confer-
ence on civil aviation to be held in
Washington next month should be of
vital, importance to every intelligent
citizen as well as to just those who
will be concerned with and affected
by the outcome.
"Why a woman's college?" The
question, ever growing in seriousness
since the advent of the great co-edu-
cational institutions of the West has
again been cast into the limelight by
an article in the November issue of
the Atlantic Monthly. A ecommitteee
composed of the presidents Barnard,
Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Radcliffe,
Smith, Vassar, and Wellesley colleges
has investigated the question, it seems,
and has come to the conclusion that
the problem at present is one of finan-
ces rather than quality.
Following a bewildering display of
statistics, the presidents conclude with
the rather unfair query "Do Ameri-
cans believe in educating women or
do they not? If they do the question
is one o justice rather than chivalry."
As a matter of fact the question is one
neither of justice nor chivalry, as any-
one but a committee on women's col-
lege presidents could see. The ques-
tion is, to be quite plain, whether the
privately supported schools for wo-
men can survive in competition with
the great state universities which give
women, in the West, equal advantages
with men.
The committee of presidents is no
doubt right when it quotes figures to
show that the future of women's col-
leges is financially black. They by no
means prove with equal conclusive-
ness, however, that the cause of seg-
regated education is a worthwhile one.
Even the Harvard Crimson, organ of
a segregated university, admits edi-
torially that "in the West and Middle-
West co-educational universities, sup-
ported by the state, have solved all
difficulties for the education of wo-
men by placing them on a par with
If the cause of the women's college
can not command sufficient support
financially to sustain the faltering in-
stitutions of the East, then perhaps
it is time that the committee of pres-
idents, instead of bemoa'ng its
plight, raised its head and looked be-
yond the Alleghenies.
This week saw the seventh number
of The Michigan Weekly mailed out
to parents and alumni, since its in-
auguration this fall. In view of the
fact that The Weekly is not distributed
on the campus, the value of its contri-
bution to the University in general
may be overlooked in the minds of
the students. This should not be the
Parents and alumni, both vitally in-
terested in the affairs of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, are eager for news
of current happenings and campus
problems, and the natural place for
them to turn fro this news is the home
town newspaper. However, in their
local papers such news is, unfortu-
nately, frequently colored or over-
drawn, whereas in The Weekly it is
presentel completely and in its true
The Daily has every reason to be
proud of the service which her sister

publication is rendering. May she
continue to enjoy her early success
and to hold the esteem which so far
has been hers.
With the announcement by the
Soviet government of Russia that it
will participate in the Geneva disarma-
ment conference for November 30, the
prospects for the success{of that meet-
ing assume the largest proportions
they have thus far attained. Afteril,
Russia represents one of the most sig-
nificant forces in Europe, and occupy-
ing as she does- the role of a dis
armament advocate, her presence at
the conference can not be detrimental.
Nothing can be decided, however,
before the powers of the world, in-
cluding the United States, get together
over the table at Geneva and boil the
problem down. No matter what the
prospects now may be for success or
failure, they mean nothing unless the
great nations show some spirit of co-
operation when they get together on
Nivember 30. Three powers, at least
(Russia, Germany, the United States),
will be advocates of outright dis-
armament; the manner in which the
other powers respond will spell suc-
cess or disruption for the conference.
According to a recent statement by
J. Kent Greene. one of the leading

which it has operated and with the
results that have been obtained during
its life. It provides that parties may
go before an arbitrator in cases which
would not be allowed by courts as
proper causes for action, and it pro-
vides that the arbitratory is sworn to
secrecy in all cases which come be-
fore him. These two elements cause
business men to seek the services of
the board and to take their cases for
arbitration rather than to court. The
settlement is swift and impartial and
thus the litigants are saved much
money in time and effort.
It might be a wise plan if all states
were to consider this plan for the set-
tlement of labor disputes. Arbitration
is, undeniably, the way to the settle-
ment of all cases of dispute in the
world. And that it should be encour-
aged in labor cases and commercial
disputes stands as evident because of
the great importance of business to
the United States and the advisability
of keeping such disputes out of the
courts, where they crowd the dockets
and often endin futility. Arbitration,
wisely administered, is the solution to
many of the difficulties of business
and of labor.
Speaking before a national educa-
tional assembly recently, President
Stratton D. Brooks of the University
of Missouri decried a tendency now
cropping up to take the control of
state universities away from those
now holding it and to place it in the
hands of a politically-elected or ap-
pointed officer.
It has been evident for some time
that politics would attempt to push
its head more and more into the gov-
erning of great educational institu-
tions as time went on and those in-
stitutions gained in prestige and pow-
er. Except for the power of public
opinion that can be brought to bear
there is little that the average tax-
payer can do to prevent such a sit-
In this respect, fortunately, Michi-
gan can look from a pinnacle of safety.
The regents of the University, elected
at intervals, are free from any sort
of politics; they are not connected
with general educational administra-
tive heads, and their jobs are not toss-
ed around the pork barrel with every
tide of favor. Such a position is to be
jealosuly guarded against any pos-
sible infringement by those who are
connected with state political ma-
(Daily Illini)
Much has been said since the first
no-car rule for undergraduate stu-
dents was passed a few years ago at
Princeton, or wherever it was, con-
demning the pros and cons of the
various regulations and laws against
student cars here and at other univer-
sities. But for the most part th com-
ment has been too facetious or too
stereotyped to provide serious thought
on the matter.
It is a relief then to see a comment
once in awhile in which the Writer has
taken a thoroughly sane viewpoint
and developed it by sane methods. For
this reason we quote the following
editorial from the Syracuse Daily
"Regulation of automobile owner-
ship for students has aroused consid-
erable discussion in universities and
colleges, and has resulted in the bann-
ing of student cars on several cam-
puses. At the other extreme is the

mid-western university which pro-
vides traffic offices to direct and
straighten out traffic jams caused by
campus automobiles.
"The problem seems to have been
somewhat exaggerated and undue ex-
citement has been caused by a few
persons who are bitterly opposed to
the idea of students having cars while
attending college. These few who
started the opposition are probably
men who have grown old physically
and mentally and cannot afford or do
not own cars themselves. So that
they delight in attempting to force
young students to their opinion.
"Wasted time has been offered as
one of the main arguments against
students ownership of automobiles. It
has been proved in many institutions
by students who own cars that they
save time in getting to classes and
J other places and so they have more
time left for other things. In this
way more is accomplished than as if
the student had to waste time walking
every place.
"Another point which has been
stressed in the argument against cars
is that they are undemocratic on a
campus and cause bitter feeling. If
form different levels of society. If
a campus population is hollow enough
to judge its individual members by
their wealth or cars then it would
find some other way to form classes
even if cars were nnhihitedl Tf f

A Review, by Robert G. Ramsay
(Editor's Note-The rejuvenated
Boston Symphony under its new con-
ductor, Serge Koussevitsky, is making
a tour of the United State,s having
appeared recently in Detroit. The fol-
lowing is a review of the performance
at Cornell university.)
Koussevitsky, new to this country,
but not unsung before his arrival, is
animpressive conductor. Built along
ample lines of Olympian proportions,
he is a Fritz Kreisler without the bow
legs. He looks like a titled roue, and
conducts his orchestra like a black-
smith. There is a collossal imagi-
nation behind his conception as
mighty as the majestic sweeps of his
native land; there is a fine Slavic
scorn for the infinitesimal which the,
pure classicist might set down to
carelessness, but which the impres-
sionist, emancipated from the shackles
of Beethooven.anid the tradition of hisj
great school, would ascribe to a
broader and freer artistry.
No one is better fitted than he 4o
produce "Petrouschka", for just as
Strawinsky, by freeing music from the
blight of theology and mysticism
which has held it enthralled since the
deaf Beethooven liave it noble expres-
sion, gives music a new life in im-
pressionism, so Koussevitsky, by dis-
regarding the infinie minutia on which
along a great art can be built, brings
to the production of Strawinsky a
mind unhampered by the classic prej-
udices of his forebears.
But the same genius which can hack
out of "Petrouschka" te fuller mean-
ing of its shrieking awfulness, fails
to draw out the angelic beauties of the
Lohengrin Prelude or the Forset Mur-
murs of Siegfried. If the murmus had
been confined to the growling of Faff-
ner no one could have given them bet-
ter expression than Koussevitsky. But
"the oslence, a bird sings" to the en-
chanted Siegfried, and here the hand
of the blacksmith must give way to
to the more delicate manipulations of

a poet. Koussevitsky must make way
for Stock of the magnificent bow, for
where he fails, the wild Teuton reigns

The Bookman's monthly score shows
Mary Roberts Rhinehart's "Lost
Ecstacy" stands only second to "Elmer
Gantry" for popularity in tpe fiction
field. The results are tabulated from
the monthly reports from public li-
braries and seem to support the con-
tention that as far as the American
public is concerned the story's the
thing, and any such considerations as
literature or art are entirely beside
the point. And so it is quite natural
that "Dusty Answer", with which
Rosamond Lehman thrilled various
critics, not the least among whom
was Heywood Broun, ranks not at all
among the twelve most popular. Miss
Lehman has written of youth in terms
of youth, with flashing words and a
clear eye. "Dusty Answer", her first
novel, is one of the few books of the
Fall list that are worth reading.
In the more; general field "Trader
Horn" and "Circus Parade" deserve
especial mention. One of the things
that makes this book of Trader Horn's
so fine is the firequent outcropping of
little bits of his rather materialistic
philosophy. Jim Tully's stuff, on the
other hand. is ghastly realism. The
