Now that the last game is over, and
the smoke of another football season
has cleared away, it is possible to look
with something of a critical rational-
ism at the accomplishments of the
year, and the course of college foot-
ball. It has been a year marked by
tremendous strides at Michigan, for
it has witnessed the completion of the
gigantic new stadium. It has been a
year of accomplishment in another
way, also, with the complete sell-out
of all seats to that stadium for three
successive home games.
All in all, however, the year has
proceeded like other football seasons,
with the tremendous momentum of the
game carrying it on at such a dizzying
pace that anything like a thoughtful
appraisal of what it all means or

where the whole thing leads to was
impossible. Now at the end of the
season, it is only fair to apply to the
game of football the same cold reason-
ing which we apply to the other phas-.
es of the American educational system.
The stigma of commercialism, lus-
tily cried from the hopsetops of col-
legiate criticism a few years ago, has
gone the way, apparently, of many
ephemeral faults levied against the.
system. More intrinsic errors still re-
main, however, and even the issue of
commercialism has been resolved into
more definite and tangible form. Many
of these errors become more serious
with the passing of each successive
year, and some of them, certainly,
could well be straightened out before
another season rolls around.
Chief of all the problems confront-
ing the collegiate athletic directors
at the present time is the problem
of providing athletic opportunities for
a larger number of students. Athletics
for all, as a topic of conversation, has
been in the public eye for years, but
athletics for all, as an. actual policy,
has yet to be tried.:.Certain univer-
sities, such as Michigan, to be sure,
are taking care of the problem as best
they can by investing the earnings
from football in providing athletic fa-
cilities for the student body.
In fact, the construction of the in-
tramural sports building on Ferry field
and that of the women's field house on

field of college athletics, and much
remains to be accomplished. The uni-
versities of the country generally, and
Michigan among them, stand only at
the threshold of an era of real devel-
opment, and it is a development in
which Michigan, as befits her reputa-
tion, should take the lead.I
Ann Arbor, through the foresight
of the Oratorical association, is host
today to one of the greatest figures
in the history of aviation-Commander
Richard E. Byrd, first man to fly over
the North Pole and conqueor of the
Atlantic, who is at the present time
making preparations for a South Pole
expedition which presages to be one
of the greatest undertakings ever at-
tempted on land, sea or air. Ann Ar-
bor is more than glad to welcome back
the man who, when he spoke in Hill1
auditorium last year, won over his
audience with his quiet and unassum-
ing story of his North Pole flight.
Coming at a time when tremendous
interest is being manifested in avia-
tion, Commander Byrd's address here
tonight has long been looked forward
to with anticipatory interest. Un-
daunted by his narrow escape when
his heavily loaded plane, the "Amer-
ica," was forced to land in the sea at
Ver-Sur-Mer last May, (this decision
on the part of Commander Byrd since
said to have resulted in saving the
lives of himself and his three com-
panions), Commander Byrd has al-
ready begun preparations in earnest
for his next epochal flight. It is
hoped that this, too, successful, the
man who has given nearly his whole
life to the cause of aviation will see
fit to return again soon to Ann Arbor
where he will always be welcome.
Michiganensian officials, aware of
the fact that they have a vital and
permanent product to offer Michigan
students, and particularly seniors,
have launched a campaign this week
that should bring the subscription list
within reach of the mark of which
the book is worthy.
It is generally conceded and em-
phatically backed by past alumni, that
to possess a Michiganensian in the
future means as much as to have ac-
cess to other student publications has
meant in the past. Its permanence
alone, regardless of its past record
of high quality, should insure a vastly
greater number of subscriptions when
the present drive terminates.
Since Mexico first discovered about
a decade ago that certain American
oil interests were exploiting her na-
tural resources the question of Amer-
ican oil rights and their disposal has
been one of the poignant issues with
every Mexican govenment. Pres-
idents have risen to power and fallen
on the issue of American concessions;
American ambassadors have haggled
and threatened and pleaded and the
Washington government has gone
through all kinds of diplomatic con-
tortions and still the omnipresent oil
concession looms in the limelight of
Mexican relations.
Now, however, with the recent de-
cision of the Mexican Supreme court
in drilling permit cases, which opens
a way to expedite the return to Ameri-
can drilling operations in that country,
the whole affair seems closer to a so-
lution than it has been for several
years past. The retroactive provision
of the Mexican law, which affected
American oil properties purchased be-
fore 1917, will probably be abandoned,

if negotiations now under way are
successful; and the way to a solution
is thereby clarified.
Probably very few of the American
interests will object to Mexico's pro-
tecting her own natural resources in
the future. Even a Mexican, however,
might see the injustice in depriving
Americans of the property that they
had already purchased and operated--
in good faith for many years in sev-
eral cases.
Exploitation of the resources of one
nation by the citizens of another is,
of course, unjust. Development of re-
sources of a new nation, however, by
capital imported from abroad is often
beneficial to both parties, and in event
of increasing reasonableness of the
Mexican government, the future de-
velopment of Mexico's resources may
promise to be rapid and successful.
The recent poll of 2.000 editors and
political leaders throughout the coun-I
try on the presidential prospects of!
1928, carried on by George Lockhart,
former secretary of the RepublicanI
National committee, reveals several
very interesting things; and above all
it reveals that the dark horses in the1

Emmanuel Sweezey, A. B. (Absolutely

crowd of spectators seated near the

Sweezey's remarks were endorsed
by Oscar Whiffle, '07, ex-president of
the Grand Rapids Alumni association.
Alumnus Whiffle was located directly
upon the 45 yard line. "Irrespective
of the fact that we lost the game be-

clared Whiffle, "if the students must
have seats in the stadium, they all
ought to be in the end-stands, clear

"The Guardsman"-also comedy, but
more sophisticated and with the Mol-
nar touch-carries out the same type
of humor which was so well received
in "The Swan." Some six months
after the wedding of a very famous
actress and actor, the household is
filled with taut and jealous emotion.
The actress, at the piano with Chopin,
is coaxing herself into the mood for
another love affair, and her actor-
husband is tortured by jealousy. Con-
vinced from knowledge of his wife's
past amours that the time is ripe for
a soldier lover, he avails himself of
his art to pose-as a Russian Imperial
Guardsman. This situation gives rise
to a highly intelligent comedy, and
provides an interplay of feelings andr
emotions that adds considerably to its
importance, as well as to its comedy
