is likely to prove particularly attrac-
tive to them.
If the labor secretary had thought
of this conference last April when
the wage agreement first expired there
would have been bright hopes ofI
amicable settlement. Now, at the ex-
piration of seven months, during
which evcry extreme measure except
open physical conflict has been re-
sorted to by both parties, and during
which the position of the operators
has become steadily stronger and the
position of the miners weaker, the
chances of agreement on an equitable
basis seem so remote as to be almost
out of the question. It would be a
safe guess to venture that despite
the optimism of Secretary Davis, the
miners in the Ohio, Pennsylvania, and
West Virginia fields will not be back
at work by Christmas.
A contest as bitter as this one has
become is far too deeply rooted to be
settled by a wave of ;a hand on the
part of our labor secretary, in spite
of the sanction of Coolidge for thatI
In these days of revolutionary
changes in American colleges, to-wit,
automobile bans, proposed limitation
of a college education to three years,
and two-team football schedules, al-
most anything can happen; and the
latest project is the proposed estab-
lishment of "civilizing factories" for
those students who go to institutions
of higher learning for the so-callbd
"college stamp" rather than educa-
tion alone.
This proposal, advocated by Dr.
Harry E. Barnes, Smith College pro-
fessor, notwithstanding the fact thatl
the twentieth century undergraduate
hardly knows what next to expect,
need not be taken seriously; it would
better be treated in a ludicrous light.
For example, any system which would
encourage classes of 3,000 and 4 000
students, as is recommended for the
"civilizing; factories," is ridiculous,
as trial would soon show.
Students patronizing the institu-
tions of higher learning may be doing
so for the purpose of obtaining the
.college stamp"; but they are also
seeking simultaneously educational
advantages. In the light of many of
the changes and projects which have
somewhat revolutionitzed the under-
graduate's world lately, the "civiliz-
ing factories" may not sound so ab-
surd; but, fundamental circumstances
regarded even momentarily, would
show such a proposal to be only a
threat, or perhaps the fulfillment of
the desire on the part of some hitherto
unknown college professor to attract

At the last minute, we decided not
to publish the photograph of the
chorus as taken by the Rolls Photo-
graphic bureau.

Something original for Union operas
was presented this year when three
distinct men's choruses were used,
in place of the customary girls and
special choruses.I

A Review, by Jim Poling.
When the final curtain fell, on "The
Same to You" last night the twenty-
second annual Michigan Union Op-
era concluded its "trying it out on
the dog" engagement. And such a
bone as the Opera offered the dog!
Any well bred canine might have de-
spaired earlier in the week but
the rather hybrid type of pup that
makes up the typical Ann Arbor
audience nersevered-and in the end
was rewarded with a few delectable
scraps from the Opera cadaver. Not I
enough to entirely satiate their ap-
petites, however.
Leaving my very delicately con-
structed analogy and getting down
to the noint of this article, namely,
what is wrong and what is good
about this year's Opera-well, there
is a lot to be said on both sides. To
be concise, the first hct is terrible
and the second act is good. The leads
as a whole are acceptable and the
chorus very amateurishly amateur.
The feminine chorus is especially
bad-they have a none too sweet odor.
I have never seen such agonized looks
in my life as those fe-males carried
throughout the performance. Some-
body connected with the directorial
end of the Opera ought to practice
Flo Zigfield's trick and put a slgn
"Smile, damn you, smile" in tbe'
foots. Or perhaps a few shots .)f
moon-dew would help the boys out.
Something, seriously, should be done.
About three hours a day practice next
week might possibly put some syn-
chronization in their movements.
They have good steps if they would
only learn them well enough to cre-
ate an impression of unity-rather
than one of individual attempts at
