nite advance upon the American Gov-
ernment at the time of the Washing-
ton conference, has adopted an atti-
tude of sceptism and disinterested-
Outwardly at least, France's atti-
tude seems to be the more logical.
During the past few years she has
developed her naval power along the
line of small cruisers and submarines
and her present program calls for a
continuance of that type of defense;
whereas, England, who proposed out
and out abolition on the previous oc-
casion is now sceptical and so far
inclined to sit back and watch.
Obviously, the time is nearing when
something more definite than mere
interest or expression of opinion will
suffice; some sort of a conference or
settlement in regard to the matter is
inevitable. Until that comes about
and the suggestion is considered more
seriously, possibility of complete abo-
lition seems entirely remote.
The University's request for $100,-
000 for repairs will be closely checked
by a personal visit from the state
director of the budget, according to
recent reports from Lansing. The
money is desired for a heating tunnel
to the new Women's League building,
a power cable to the University hos-
pital, a power line to the dental build-
ing, and repairs on the power plant
On the surface it appears that the
move of investigation by the budget
director may be only sound business,
but when examined closely the whole
situation exhibits a far different
aspect. The state, in plain language,
is about a million dollars short of
meeting its obligations for the year.
As a result, a number of the appro-
priations passed by the legislature
and approved by the governor will
have to be curtailed to a shadow
of themselves if the state is to survive
the year with anything like a small
The apparent gesture of efficiency
and sound business, then, assumes
the proportions of a most severe ex-
tremity; and the ostentatious bally-
hoo of the state administrative board
is merely a screen to cover up a finan-
cial situation which that board is not
anxious to advertise. The fault, of
course, is first with the state legisla-
ture which dilly-dallied through the
placid days of spring and found itself
on the eve of the final session with
the necessity of passing pell-mell a
whole multitude of appropriations
The second and ultimate fault, how-
ever, can be traced directly to the
governor and administrative board
which lacked the courage to pare the
appropriation figures down within the
state revenue before they were face
to face with a more or less desperate
One possible way there seems to be
out of the difficulty, however, sug-
gested by Shirley Smith, secretary
of the University. It seems that of
the $350,000 appropriated by the state
for the purchasing of the property for
the Women's League building only
$300,000 was needed, leaving a bal-
ance of $50,000 which Secretary Smith
proposes to apply to the present re-
pairs. By this system the projects

We leave him the Universiy, with

local indications that it has a plenti-

make the world such a perfectly silly
place to live in.

We leave him President Little, who
is said to have said that the late Ben-
jamin Bolt was a great detriment to
the University. But every job hias its
limitations. Some people are so hrrd
to please.

Incidentally, if Jeb aspires to a
policy of "Obstruction," we hope he
will be as successful as the Studen.t

contributors, whose protests were
largely responsible for giving ul

This is not a farewell column. If
possible, we hope to remain around
this institution for some little time,
depressing as the prospect may seem
to some.

shall temporarily be allowed to re-
gain possession of the editorial chair.

TOiNIGHT: Play Prduction presents
"Suit Up" by Luli Volmer in the
iMimes theater at 8:15 o'clock.
* * *
Lulu Vollmer sold tickets in the
box office of the Theater Guild until
she became over night a successful
playwright with "Sun Up." Since
that time she has concocted another
drama of similar setting called "Trig-
ger," which is now in New York with
Miss Claiborne Foster in the name
role. And as a result "Sun Up," after
serving Pauline Starke as a vehicle
in the movies-chiefly remarkable for
one very torrid scene-is now being
played by stock companies and ama-
teurs. It will be given tonight by the
following cast from the Play Produc-
tion classes:
Widow Cagle ......SARAH BONINE
Rufe Cagle ......EVERED ROGERS
Emmy Todd ......MABEL BARUCH
Bud Todd.........ALFRED FOSTER
Sheriff Weeks...HENRY GRINNELL
The Preacher.....JOHN BANNASCH
Bob, a deputy ...................
"Sun Up" will be followed tomor-
row night by the Hatcher Hughes
Pulitzer Prize play, "Hell Bent for
Heaven" which several campus dra-
matic societies have been threatening
to do for some time. This will alternate
with "Sun Up" in repertory fashion
on Friday and Saturday nights.
The emotions of Detroit audiences
are being put to the test for another
week, due to the fact that both "The
Squall" (at the Shubert-Lafayette)
and "Lun Bele" (at the New Detroit)
are being held over another week.
Both plays have been credited with
a season in New York--the former
with Blanche Yurka, and the latter
with Leonore Ulric-both of tlhem
capable emotional actresses. Miss
Yurka's play has been advertised as a
"passion-swept drama of love and
lust, rinfatuation and devotion." Suz-
anne Caybanne, Sarah Bernhardt's
very beautiful neice, is playing the
gypsy wanton, Nubi, who is the cause
of the above mentioned erotic ten-
Miss Ulric's portrayal of the Mu-
latto strumpet has since its opening
become a Harlem epic, and so needs
no introduction. And Miss Ulric her-
self, whose fame has been materially
increased while putting Belasco shows
over for some time, needs no further
A further program in the Matinee
Musicale series was given last night
in the Mimes theater, and proved to be

kempter, clarinet.

8 millionda y-IT HAD TO


A new and interesting plan for the
erection of student dormitories has
been hit upon by Michigan State col-
lege; and it appears that for the firstj
time in Michigan an attempt will be
made to finance college dormitories
with private capital. A banking con-
cern, it seems, will lease a portion of
the Michigan State college campus
and erect thereon a dormitory. The
college, in turn, will rent the rooms
of the dormitory to students and from
the money thus derived will pay the
banking company for the use of the
building and in time for the entire
cost of construction-at which pointI
the dormitory will become the prop-
erty of the school.
It is impossible, of course, pending
more definite information to comment
on the practicability of the plan. In
certain phases, nevertheless, it has
elements of soundness which cannot
be denied; and not the least of these
is the process which will give to the
college dormitories for the accommo-,
dation of its students with no outlay
of funds.
To say that a similar scheme would
work at another institution-here, for
instance--would be stretching the
point rather far under present cir-
cumstances. Not only would land
here cost many times the value on
the State college campus, but the
dormitories to which Michigan aspires
are not the variety proposed for her
sister institution, where is it planned
to erect them for $1,000 a room.
In spite of its apparent difficulties,
nevertheless, the system will bear
watching. It is entirely possible thatI
future developments may indicate a
possible solution to the whole prob-
lem of student dormitories at state
