WELCOME, , VYI
Michigan is glad to welcome
again the hosts of midship-
men, their alumni and their
friends. In what promises to be
one of the most colorful Interse-
tional gamnes of the season the
representatives of the two insti-
tutions will meet on' te gridiron
this afternoon. May the friendly
spirit of rivalry which has already
characterized their mutual rela-
tions mark that contest and many
others In future years.
BACK ON THE LINE
A few days ago the Eastern sport-
ing world-and Yale especially-was
stricken with the announcement that
Bruce Caldwell, star halfback and
mainstay of the Blue had been de-

clared ineligible on a small technical-
ity, and this preceding one of the most
important and colorful contests of the
season, the Princeton game. Follow-
ing upon the heels of this blow came
a request from the faculty and mem-
bers of the Princeton team that
Caldwell be allowed to play despite
the ruling. The request was denied
by Yale.
The contrast between these cour-
ageous steps and the rumpus of last
year between Harvard and Princeton
is sufficient to excite attention, and
the one serves to almost obliterate the
bad taste left by the other. Yale is to
be commended for her stand in re-
gard to the ineligibility of her players,
and her display of moral strength and
pride in maintaining her declared po-
sition in the face of a sportsmanslike
but illogical offer. The Tiger, on the
other hand, went a long way toward
creating a long-standing bond of good
feeling by its princely request. Both
institutions acted in the spirit that
is characteristic of the game, and
neither will ever have cause to be
sorry.
The only remaining grounds for
regret concern the blight which the,
incident has placed on the career of
Caldwell, who is known to be an out-
standing sportsman himself, and the
basis of the action which was created
bysch flmsvechnnia onnstruction.I

a year since the last proposal has
been made, and the elapse of time
does not improve the condition of that
gigantic enterprise from a physical
standpoint.
Now Senator Norris of Nebraska has
leaped into the limelight with the
statement that the great power units
can not practicably be used for the
manufacture of nitrate fertilizer, and
that to continue such a proposal would
be to delude the American farmer.
Senator Norris substantiates his as-
sertions with evidence, and the whole
situation comes farther yet from so-
lution.;
At present Muscle Shoals is a tre-
mendous white elephant. It could be
used to generate power, or it could
be sold. It could be leased or destroy-
ed, and in any case be more economi-
cal to maintain than it is at present.
It is a monumental evidence of gove-
ernmental vacillation, and the cost of
thatdvacillation. If the American peo-
ple demand little else from the next
Congress, they should certainly de-
mand that some disposal be made of
Muscle Shoals.
DEMOCRACY SOMERSAULTS
One of the most interesting political
battles of several years occurred this
year in New York state, and though
it was obscured in this section of the
country by local campaigns of para-
mount interest, it should not be allow-
ed to pass without comment.
The Republicans of New York, it
seems, struggled desperately to se-
cure popular ratification of an amend-
ment which would have given the
governor of that state a four year
term, with election in the presiden-
tial years. This obviously would en-
hance the power of the Republicans
in state. politics tremendously, since
the Republican rural districts of up-
state New York appear at the polls
in force on thesehoccasions and would
doubtless turn the tide in a close bat-
tle.
Needless to say, the forces of Gov-
ernor Al Smith and his Democratic
organization opposed this amendment
tooth and nail, since it would mean
that invariably the Democrats would
face a possible Republican presiden-
tial landslide when they campaigned
for governor. It is well to know that
with a strong man at the head of a
ticket, the whole ballot is likely to be
swept into office from his momentum,
and the New York Democrats do not
fancy the prospect of facing a power-
fulRepublicantpresidential candidate
with their state ticket.
In the election held this week the
proposal of the Republicans for the
four year term was decisively defeat.
ed; and now the most interesting as-
pect of the whole situation has arisen.
If the election of a governor in the
presidential years would handicap the
Democrats, then the election of the
governor only in the off years would
be an advantage to them, and fol-
lowing this line of reasoning they have
turned a complete somersault and an-
nounced that they will project a meas-
ure to establish the election of a gov-
ernor for four year terms with the
election midway between the presi-
dential years.
To meet them, the New York Re-
publicans have also reverted to the
opposite side, and will now oppose
the four year term, contending that
the present two year term, where the
governor is elected half the time with
the president and half the time alone
is ideal.
Through it all, of course, both par-
ties have attempted to obscure their
selfish motives by a smoke screen of

high sounding political expressions.
There is no use attempting to deceive
the public, however, for the object of
both stands is as plain as can be, so
leaving all considerations of Al
Smith's bid for the presidency out of
the consideration of the present sit-
uation, it assumes one of the most
interesting aspects thaat a political
situation can. New York state is to
be treated to the prospect of two great
political parties both turning their
principles upside down, and still re-
maining in diametrically opposite po-
sitions.
THE MOVIES AS EDUCATORS
'With the use of the radio as a media
of education in all parts of the world
becoming of increasing importance,
recent developments in France indi-
cate that moving pictures will soon
rival the radio in that respect. After
seriously considering the merits of
moving pictures for educational pur-
poses, the French senate has just
passed a resolution calling upon the
Minister of Education, M. Herriot, to
prepare a bill "permitting rational
general utilization of the cinema in
all branches of instruction and in the
social and professional education of
citizens."
Recognizing the supremacy of the
United States in regard to the motion
nicture industry. Senator Bremier.

time, 25,000 are in the United States
and 3,000 in France."
It is important that France is
obviously awakened to the fact that
they are lagging behind as far as the
motion picture industry is concerned.
With steps already begun and spon-
sored to pass a bill which will bring
about the use of moving pictures in
the schools, it will not be a surprise
if France is the first to put this new
media of education into effect.
DIPLOMA TIC AGREEMENT
The past year has been particularly
prolific in conferences and conven-
tions, which, if they have not straight-
ened out situations for time everlast-
ing, have certainly done much for
understanding and for conciliation,
instead of hard feeling and cut-throat
competition. The attention of the
whole world has been focussed on
these gatherings and the outcome of
all of them has been that more and
more organization and g'roups are
seeking to settle their difficulties by
amicable discussion and agreement.
The latest conference which shows
promises of accomplishing some
lasting good is the one of European
nations on international trading. The
object of the gathering was admittedly
to make a clean sweep of the existing
regulations and prohibitions on im-
ports and exports and it has ended
in the acquiesence of 16 nations to
the proposal that they join in remov-
I ing the imports and export duties
which restrain trade.
It is important, now that many of
the countries of Eurpoe are :recover-
ing from their war panic, that they do
all things possible to stimulate the
trade of their countries. Taking steps
to remove the duties and to open the
channels of trade so that all articles
may be easily and cheaply procured
is a logical step which will do much
for intercourse in Europe and will at
the same time stimulate an under-
standing and an interest in other races
which will lead to amity and friend-
ship.

THE (GLEE CLUB
There seems to Ye a rather peculiar
situation arising in the Glee Club this
year. For the first time in its exist-
ence, there has been sufficient material
for the tenor sections. In the past
Theodore Harrison has been badly put
to find enough voices in this depart-
ment, while there have been baritones
and basses enough to spare. How-
ever, this is rather a chronic situation
in a great many clubs.
For this reason, this is the first
year that Mr. Harrison has been able
to try certain effects that are rather
difficult to achieve. For instance, he
can bring the entire club into a forte
passage, and at the same time not
worry about the baritone section cove-
ering the tenors. This permits a more
flexible organization, and assures a
more varied repertoire.
The first concert of the season was
given last night in Mt. Clemens, and
the first Ann Arbor concert will be

AID OF A DIPLOMA
To the Editor:
Being only a sophomore I haven't
as yet been completely exposed to
what they call "higher education," so
1 I may not be capable of judging the
idea of the university college. Since,
however, I haven't as yet found out
what added knowledge comes after the
second year of university work, I can
easily put myself in the place of the
students of the university college
which is soon to be initiated at Michi-
gan.
If I were to "graduate"from being
a sophomore next spring I could plan
to stop school without disgrace. With
a diploma in my possession I could
easily sally forth to the world of
business, of industry, or of society
with my head held high. If I wanted
to take up a profession I could do so
and the diploma wouldn't make any
difference.
Taken at a cursory glance this all
seems rather absurd. Why not just
stop school and make no bones about
it?
As we look at the matter more care-
fully, however, we can pick out sev-
eral arguments in favor of such a sys-
tem, arguments which from the stu-
dents' point of view are powerful. In
the first place, such a diploma would
not le merely a second, and thus use-
less, high school diploma. It would
be a distinctly higher honor, provid-
ing that the standards of work done
in the university college were kept up.
Secondly, with curricula planned espe-
cially to meet the needs of students
who intended to partake of no more
schooling, the two extra years could
be of great value. And in the third
place, if some of the cultural subjects'
which are now restricted to juniors
and seniors should be opened to the
university college students, a lot of
needless waiting could be eliminated
and many students could get "what
they came to college for" in two years
as well as some of them now do in
four. Also, the fact that freshmen
and sophomores of all the schools and
colleges would be included on the
same basis would be an advantage to
them. The professions themselves
would be put on a more uniform level
than is now possible.
If I could think that next spring I
might graduate from an institutio'n
embracing such principles as these, I
would just as soon "make bones about
it."

It might also be mentioned that
Mr. Harrison has promised Mr. Shuter
a double quartet for the opera this
year. This will be used pricipally in
the "Indigo Strain," where the quartet
will sing counter melody from Gersh-
win's "Rhapsody in Blue" against a
solo by Robert Graham, '29.

"COPPER SUN," poems, by Countee
Cullen; New York: Harpers; 1927;
$2.
A review, by Lenoir Beatrice Smith.
In Countee Cullen's former poems
there has been an elegance, an aristo-
cratic lightness, a rapier-like twist of
phrase that has strongly suggested
the Cavalier poets. An unusual fresh-
ness with a consistent perfection of
line brought thoughts of Edna St. Vin-
cent Millay.
That these similarities have been
recognized by the poet himself is in-
dicated by the fact that he dedicates
his newest book Copper Sun, "To The
Not Impossible Her." Millay has a
poem called "For The Not Impossible
Him," and Richard Crashaw in his
"Wishes To His-Supposed Mistress"
calls her the not impossible She.
One of the most striking things in
this work of Cullen's is his divorce-
ment from a certain racial bitterness
that was present in Color. He has
fewer poems about his race, and they
are the objective sort of thing that
any great writer might do. He appre-
ciates, he understands, and sympa-
thizes, but his artistic vision is not
compromised. The Negro lad is fast
becoming the universal artist.
The whole roster of emotions are
there. At one end of his sectrum are
found the warm fervent rays of exalt-
ed love, ecstasy, faith; and even Jesus
of Nazareth. At the other are the
cold actinic beams of cynicism, cruel-
ty, scorn. Between are quiet reflec-
tion and loveliness. At one time he
curses his mistress for the jade that
she is, and looks up from her kisses
to the girl passing "up that hill,"
while again he is the timid lover who
regards his lady love as a "golden
damson hung upon a silver bough,"
but whose will would never flow "past
the frail intent." With a transcendent
spirituality he writes of 'life after
death, and soul's reincarnation, while
in the next poem or so, he has his
souls living again only as modern
science would have them live-by re-
turning to the soil the precious ele-
ments that were given into their keep-
ing for a while. Now it is a sonnet at
the grave of Keats in Rome, or a
glorious paen "On the Mediterranean
Sea," and then he immediately switch-
es to tell of "Uncle Jim," an old Ne-
gro philosopher down on a Southern
plantation.
Universality of subject, variety of
form, and beauty of expression are
outstanding qualities in Copper Sun.
There are one or two ordinary things
but the many gems make up for them,
'one, and by no means the least of
which, is his epitaph for Amy Lowell,
where he says:
She leans across a golden table
Confronts God with an eye
Still puzzled by the standard label
All flesh bears: Made to die-
And questions Him if He is able
To reassure her why.
Every week L'Illustration, a Pa-
risian periodical, prints the text of
a play. The first American work to be
so honored recently appeared. It was
