proposal, if at all, for if such a ven-
ture were commercially profitable the
industry would not have waited until
the 25th anniversary to hold it.
Civil and commercial aviation is a
big field, no doubt. It is a field,
nevertheless, which presents very few
problems that can be solved in con-
ference, and still fewer that can be
lessened by debate. The flying field
and the airplane factory, dedicated to
the cause of the infant industry, must
of necessity be the breeding place of
new thought in the field of aeronau-
tics, and on the whole it is extremely
difficult to see the concrete advan-
tages at this time of a conference such
as that proposed by President Cool-
For the second time in two years
and for the fourth time in all, a local
audience is glad to welcome Edwin M.
Whitney, hailed as America's greatest
dramatic recitalist, back to Ann Ar-
bor again.
A genuine American gentleman,
trained in his art to the finest degree,
Mr. Whitney's past performances have
always had an atmosphere of whole-
someness and artistry about them
that makes him, as a dramatist, im-
personator and gentleman, once more
a welcome guest. It is to be hoped
that the man who has charmed Ann
Arbor audiences in the past will see
fit to appear here in Hill auditorium
again in the future.
The threat of the insurgents to
block the organization of the Senate
by refusing to vote with the Republi-
can party has apparently been check-
ed and the officers and committees of
that body will again be* controlled by
the Grand Old Party. On the surface
this condition would seem to indicate
that the insurgent members of the
Senate have been suppressed and sub-
ordinated; but the surface impression
is deceiving, and though the Repub-
licans organized the Senate, their po-
sition there is considerably less se-
cure than it would seem.
At the present time there are 47
Democratic senators enrolled in thai
body, 46 Republicans, and one Farm-
er-Laborite (Shipstead). With the
vote of Shipstead the Republicans wil
have a tie, and with the vote of Dawes
in the event of a tie the party of th(
President will have a working margin
of one vote. When one bears in mind
the fact that five of the regular Re
publican votes 'are insurgents, pre-
pared to leave the fold at any moment
the tenure of Republicanism seems
precarious indeed.
Perhaps 'after all the insurgents
knew what they were about when they
aided the Republicans to organize, for
now the responsibility for whateve
trouble may occur will rest directl
with the regulars and their hench-
men; and trouble there promises to b
in abundance before the next session

Rolls officials were busy all day
Sunday trying to induce the two to
meet in a debate upon the question.
So far tley have been unsuccessful.
Not long ago we read that as soon
as the lamented Ken Withrow recov-
i ers from the effects of his recent
escapade he is going to be reinstated
as official motor cop for the Univer-
sity, and from thereon two offical
cops will be on duty to met the prob-
lem of student protection.

This auto ban is sort of an intangi-
ble thing at best. Some say it is law-
ful. Some say it isn't. Some say it
can be enforced by state officers.
Others say it can't. Although Pres-
ident Little and his Regents must
have known the secret all along, they
wouldn't tell us. So we figured it out
all alone.
* * *
As a mere point of law, the auto
rules applied to people in general
would be unconstitutional. A state
policeman is stretching his commis-
sion a bit when he stops a driver and
asks if he has a permit from the Uni-
versity to drive. It would also be
quite a bore to our motoring popula-
tion, as well as hindering traffic.
Of course a University official may
be able to demand that a student show
his permit. But he has to stop hii
first. And even though they're not
supposed to be, students look a lot
lice other jeople.

But with two motormen, everything
is simplified. All that is necessary is
for them to work together.

Then right behind him comes Officer
No. 2, official University cop. Before
the unlucky student can get away he
mounts on the running board and de-
mands to see his permit. And if the
driver be guilty of this terrible crime
of breaking the auto rules, lie must
either talk fast to his granite-hearted
accuser, or else confess his sins.

they are-at least there is comedy and
plot, and the cast does right by it for
the most part. Crane and Wetzel are
exceptional and Ramsay, Dougall,
Cristy, Kurvink and the rest are
something more than adequate. There
are certain parts that are sloppy, all
of which were well pointed out last
week, but they are to be expected in
all amateur shows.

Due to all the fuss and fury at the
Whitney last week there wasn't room
to mention anything concerning Play
Production and Direction's first sea-
sonal offering. However, Martinez
Sierra is sufficiently well-known on
this campus through "The Cradle
Song" which Masques gave two years
ago, and which was immensely suc-
cessful. It should be good entertain-
ment, although I fear for the box of-
fice, since Christmas slump which
may be expected to do its worst.
Edwin M. Whitney, interpreter of
plays, and an actor of some reputation
in the lyceum field will present "A
Tailor Made Man" tonight in Hill
auditorium. The play itself is rather
bad, and Mr. Whitney is rather good,
so you can julge for yourself.
A Review, by Robert Carson
The acclaim that this orchestra and
its director, Ossip Gabrilowitsch, re-
ceived upon its first appearance in
this city this year was certainly well
merited. For some time there has not
been a program presented that has
been so consistently fine in its en-
tiretly. The most perfectly rendered
was undoubtedly the Tchaikowsky
I number. The selection of numbers
was particularly interesting, offering
us the romantic expression of Schu-
bert, the "classical" Ceser Franck
(reminiscent of Beethoven or the
earlier Bach), the mnodernity and ex-
periments of our contemporary in the
French school, Dukas, the vigor of
Tchaikowsky and finally Brahms in
an amusing mood.
Despite Mme. de Chezy and her poor
libretto, Schubert's music from "Rosa-
munde" still is heard. Schubert pos-
sessed an acute appreciation of lyric
poetry and this has carried itself into
the orchestral field as well as in his
lighter compositions. This lyric tem-
per is penchant throughout the over-
In the "Symphony i-n D minor" by
Franck the orchestra reached Olym-
pian heights. A splendid opportunity
was given for the display of the dif-
ferent groups of instruments. The
woodwinds proved to be remarkable
(something I have missed before). In
the ecstacy of the Allegretto move-
ment the English horn played the
charming melody with consummate
artistry. One can neither forget the
niellow, clear tones of the French
horn. The second and last movement,
because of a greater unity, were the
better rendered.
Dukas seems to have gone through
a gamut of eccentricities in the "Sym-
