STUDENT RELIGION
Amng those pesmists who would
like to see in our present day educa-
tional system the damnation of all
American youth, the idea that students
have very little religion or very ma-
terialistic religion enjoys great pop-
ularity and currency. These same
persons, doubtless, would be taken
aback to hear, from the lips of one
who is spending his life with students
and their religions, the remark that
"I am not one who claims that be-
cause students are relatively indi!r-
ent to many current expressions of
religion, that they are therefore neces-
arily irreligious or indifferent to re-
ligion."

This statement was made by Eric
Thomsen, student, councilor of the1
Student Christian association. I
And after all, and notwithstanding
the pessimists, one is impelled toC
agree with Mr. Thomsen, for underly-
ing the whole shallow superficiality
of college students (the deliberate su-
perficiality in many cases), there runs
a deeper strain than students are gen-
erally credited with. Scoffing there
is; to be sure, and ridicule and criti-
cism, but through it all the students
of today are thinking, and are forging
for themselves a religion much more
sound and enduring than the airy
faiths of many of their predecessors.
The University student of today is
taught to think; he is taught to ex-
amine the problems of his everyday
life from the standpoint of scientific
accuracy; and the inevitable result is
conviction rather than credulity, and
a religion which, if wrong, is open
to alteration on the basis of new
truth.
All in all there is very little cause
for alarm in the situation of student1

narrow theologians. From the univer-

THIS AFTERNOON AND TO-
NIGHT: The 37nies present their
twenty-second annual opera, "The
Same to You" at 2:30 and 8:15 o'clock
in the Whitney theater.
"THE SANE TO YOU"
A Review, by R. Leslie Askren
The audience in their stiff-bosomed
shirts applauded the over-ripe fruit
of art which the Michigan Union and
the authors call an Opera. Apparently
Dougall and Wall had their tongues
in their cheeks in the true Hollywood
manner else they would never have
called "The Same to You" an opera-
not seriously, that is. It's darn good
burlesque, an artistic thumbing of the
nose at all good musical comedies
that are now 'packing them in the
aisles' on Broadway, but it seriously
can't be an Opera.
So much for a Razz review. Seri-
ously, the opera has possibilities.
Damn me for a hopeless optimist and
enthusiast if the show hasn't possi-
bilities. I like it now. I'd like it a
lot better if some things were changed
in it, but as it stands it opght to
please our worthy Alumni. They,
contrary to Ann Arbor audiences, will
not ask that the men look like wom-
en, or that the voices be good, or that
the lances 16 any more than a lot of
floor pounding with that part of the
antomy which 'Bud' so coyly identified
as "that." Most of the Alumni will
probably not be in any condition to
know anyhow. They are cut for a
good time. A good musical comedy
would be wasted on them.
Still more seriously, the show this
year is an ambitious attempt to do
something good, in a modern way.
There is a plot, melodramatic plot
that glitters as such a plot should.
There are some good dance numbers
which, if somebody would only get
interested in them, might be worked
up into smooth hoofing. There are
some really colorful costumes-Rus-
sian Rose scene was a knockout. And
the technical effects would be fine,
effective, if the fog didn't knock over
the lampost, and glass-crash didn't
come more or less as an afterthought.
Things like that would ruin any show,
no matter how many George Whites
we had on the campus.
The first act drags-because it
ought to move fast. What I mean
is that it is unnecessary to make the
audience mark time. There is no need
for the lead bars to every dance, as!
if one were to say "one, two, three,
there! Now enjoy yourselves." That
makes a show drag. And then it is an
admitted fact that there are no voices
in the cast. Why sing. Bawl the
songs out. That would be better than
a halfbaked attempt at sentimental
singing-on the order of George Ran-
dall's. And many of the numbers are
too long. Theme and variations are all
right for Beethoven, but when "Just
Because" is done in every manner ex-
cept the Yiddish enthusiasm so biased
even as mine begins to lag. I would
rather have seen the thing cut in half
and the time remaining to ,Dougall's
or Lewis' graceful efforts. Or, dia-
logue might be used--which reminds
me that for sheer wetness the dia-
logue is easily comparable to the girls
chorus. Wet, partly because the wise-

cracks are dragged in wholesale,

it may seem, there are some 'laughs'
in the lines. Their age and perennial
reappearance proves it.
Now, allow me to take a couple of
vicious cracks at the cast. For one,
George Randall, ham actor supreme,
and greatest living 'ad-liber.' Put him
at a piano and he'd play it like a
harp-at least that's how he sings.
Wetzel, cast in a Samuel Hardy "Fan-
shaw never fails" role, tries to make
a Bond street Sherlock Holmes out of
it. Try and do it. The trouble of
course in this case is with the cast-
ing. Wetzel simply isn't anything near
the part, and by a bigger difference,
he isn't a comedian.
