commissions and reparations commis-
sions have played a large part in the
reconstruction of the structure of the
new republic and the personnel and
the members of ' these commissions
have been, to a large extent, from this
According to the recent report by
Ambassador Schurman who has re-
turned to this country for the holi-
days, Germany is fast coming to a
realization of the place thatwas held
by that country before the war. By the
exercise of great industry and a utili-
zation of all of the ideas of the for-
eign countries who aided in the work
of reconstruction, the new Republic
has been enabled to reach a semblance
of the manufacturing place which it
held before the war.
The fact that Germany holds this
place is of great importance to the
rest of the world. Prejudice has long
ago been dispelled and that fact that
this country is now able to take its
place in the commerce of the world
should occasion great regard for her
powers of recuperation. In addition
there is the fact that having one sick
nation in the world naturally and effi-
ciently hampers the actions and the
trade of all of the rest of the coun-
tries. That all of the nations occupy
the place to which their diligence and
their industry entitle them, is the
ideal of a civilized world.
With the application of the new law
prohibiting residents of Canada from
entering the United States to work
unless they possess visas, the difficul-
ties at the various points of entry, in
Detroit, Niagara Falls, and Vermont
were not nearly as great as were ex-
pected. More than 500 persons were
detained, to be sure, but they had
failed to comply with the law in ad-
vance, and the delay was the penalty
they paid.
On the whole, however, the very
ease with which it worked shows that
the new law is quite unnecessary,'
since the workmen from Canada will
obtain their visas and enter as before..
The first day showed that the act will
not reduce the number of Canadian
workmen in the least, and the first
day should also show that the United
States will waste considerbale money
in the end in enforcing the regulation.
If the law fails to accomplish any-
thing more than a check, and if it is
going to require the services of large
forces of officers for enforcement, it
seems on the-whole as though it might
quite well be eliminated from the I

Jannings is literally the "whole
show." Playing three almost entirely
different parts, from the young man
to the broken old pauper, he under-
goes one of the most unusual trans-
formations that has ever been seen on
the screen. The two other important
characters, Belle Bennett, the wife,
and Phyllis Haver, the "other woman"
are so completely overshadowed by
Jannings that one hardly realizes they
are in the picture.
One is impressed with the scarcity
of sub-titles, but these are unneces-
sary, for almost everything is carried
out in pantomime, especially where
Jannings is concerned.

There is one place where tloe so-
called college movie should never be
shown-and that place is a college
town. For the gullible general public
that consititutes the bulk of the
movie4house patronage, the moving
picture dire tor's conception of a col-
lege may be edifying and satisfying;
but to the several thousands of stu-
dents actually confined in such insti-
tutions, thet nonsense thus perpetrat-
ed appears in its true light-as perfect

No dne objects to seeing a popular
comedian making a farce of college
life; but the attempts at serious
drama, if one dares call such atroci-
ties "attempts at drama" are disgust-
ing and revolting to those who find it
impossible to sleep through them. The
freshman athlete winning the rowing
meet, the conceited ass reforming to
win the hand of the dissipated-looking
co-ed, and the poor outcast coming
through in the =crisis to win glory for
old Siwash have all been overdone to
the point where 'they are sickening.
The serious influence which these
pictures may have on the general pub-
lic is' also a factor to be considered.
It is general knowledge that, as a re-
sult of the perspective given by news-
'papers of the ilearstian taint, the pub-
lic has a c riception of a University
as some sort f a glorified playground,
where studelhts ;go and play football
and dance for fdur years and then au-
tomatically, by some magic process,
receive degrees as doctors and
lawyers which enable them to practice
those professions. The movie seems
. determined to go even farther in this
direction, however, and convince the
general public that deans are dried
up fossils and that faculty members
are only employed as objects of stu-
dent derision.
At Princeton the students have
risen against the showing of such
movies, and have appealed to the thea-
ter managers to refrain from exhibit-
ing them. The disgust with them here
is probably so complete that even to
protest would be too complimentary
to the rubbish which has appeared on
local screens recently. If local thea-

(Cornell Daily Sun.)
To judge from a highly enthusiastic
editorial in the Michigan Daily, the
Ann Arbor institution, not to be out-
done by Wisconsin and Princeton, is
planning an educational innovation,
perhaps more revolutionary than any
of the several which have been adopt-
ed in the past few years by various
of our universities.
According to the plan which may
be put into effect next fall, all fresh-
men will be placed in the University
college upon entering. There they
will be personally noted by the in-
structors, and will be given an oppor-
tunity for investigation on their own
initiative. When they are deemed
adequately prepared, they will be pro-
moted to a professional school, admis-
sion to which will be made on the
basis of a comprehensive examina-
tion at the completion of two years
in the University college. Those con-
sidered -unfit for continuing their uni-
versity careers will be dropped with a
certificate of some sort.
The advantages of the plan are
obvious. It will give two years gen-
bral education to students in all the
professional and technical colleges,
and should eliminate the countless
misfits who, as the Michigan Daily
says, "clutter up classes and hinder
the progress of whole sections of the
more capable."
Obviously it will be an expensive
plan in operation, but other draw-
backs are not now apparent. The1
educational world will watch with in-
terest its results at Michigan.
Evidently the air hoppers aren't
carrying off all -the honors these days.
