-Night Editor-K. G. PATRICK

With the announcement made yes-
terday that Senator James Reed of
Missouri will undertake an extensive
speaking campaign through the South
and portions of the West in an effort
to line up delegates in his support
for the Democratic presidential nomi-
nation, the first real opposition to the
candidacy of Governor Al Smith looms
on the horizon. The campaign of
Reed, it is announced, will not be
designed to antagonize- any of the
favorite son candidates, but will mere-
ly endeavor to obtain second choice
instructions from the favorite son
Whether Al Smith, with his wet and
Catholic connections will be able to
withstand the assaults of so able a
man as Senator Reed through the
South and West is difficult to say,
but certain it is that a man of Reed's
caliber and prestige can cut a wide
swath into the ranks of what would
otherwise be Smith delegates. Al-
ways a powerful figure in the Demo-
cratic ranks, the eloquent Missourian
has come into even greater promi-
nence as a result of his Senate slush
funds investigation, and is no mean
power to be reckoned with.
From California, where he will
doubtless pick up the dry and Protest-
ant votes of the McAdoo machine, to
the south Atlantic seaboard, the can-
didacy of Smith seems likely to strike
on fruitful ground. Through the vast
Middle West, with its heart in his
home state, Missouri, the Reed forces
are apt to sweep Smith aside with the
indomitable force of an avalanche, if
his organization is wise and his col-
leagues adroit. Smith, on the other
hand, will probably be prevented by
his somewhat delicate health from
making a campaign of such a wide
scope and of such rigid exactions, a
fact which may suffice to turn the
tide in the heat of a close campaign.
It will be a gratification to the anti-
Smith forces throughout the country
to have a leader of tihe high qualifi-
cations and ability of the Senator as
their standard bearer. Combining as
he does the abilities of a brilliant ora-
torical prowess with keen executive
discretion, Democracy could find few
higher types of leadership than that
embodied in the impending campaign
of James Reed.
At the present time there are on
display in the lobby of the Library
and in the corridors of the Architec-
ture building several exhibits of high
artistic merit and real beauty. These
displays have been arranged at con-
siderable expenditure of time and ef-
fort, and represent a high form of
achievement for both the members of
the University staff and the profes-
sional artists which they represent.
They are, in short, pieces of work
which should attract no small de-
gree of interest on the part of the stu-
dent body.
Nothing can possibly be more vitiat-
ing to the cause of artistic work on
the campus and to the cause of art-
istic inspiration than apathy towards
achievement in these lines by the
student body. In the past a real and
intelligent interest has been mani-
fested in work of this type, and it is
to be genuinely hoped and expected
that a large portion of the student
body will find it worthwhile tosspend
the few moments required in viewing
the present exhibitions. From a cul-
tural standpoint there are few more
valuable types of endeavor on the
campus than this.

Hundreds of petitions like that
signed by the Detroit ministers union
the other day pleading with Congress
not to pass the $740,000,000 navy ap-
propriations bill for the sake of in-
ternational relations,cane to a head
in Congress Wednesday when Dr.
William Hull, as representative of
the International Alliance of Inter-
national Friends and the Church
Peace Union sought to dissuade the
committee. Evidence subsequently
revealed that the pacifistic ammuni-
tion was partly made up of "duds" in
the shape of approbation on the part
of many of the church organizations
of the program of armament.
The characteristic of all these peti-
tions-namely abstract objections to
the plan on theoretical grounds-
seems to be the deathblow to any
hopes the backers may have had. The
representative came to Congress, and
in attempt to lend weight to his
words, declared that he spoke for all
the churches in the country. Im-
mediately he was confronted with
positive commendations of a stronger
navy from several churches he had
included in his sweeping statement.
After some hesitation he advanced the
theory that France and England were
not to be feared and that Japan could
not do anything. This was followed
by a declaration that Washigton's

Today, Michigan with alumni, fac-
ulty, and students as well as many
others all over the world honor the
memory outhe r l e President .LeRoy
The University cannot help but
pause in its routine to pay respect to
a man whose remarkable administra-
tive ability and great sympathetic out-
look have done more for Michigan
probably than any other man. It is
well recognized that in his great devo-
tiOn to the University, President Bur-
ton supplied it with unequalled equip-
ment as he intended to give it the best
fapilty available.
To all who came in contact with
President Burton, his fine personality
was evident. The love and respect
which he naturally exacted from his
many friends and associates was an
enormous tribute to his character.
In the spring following the demisel
of President Burton, suggestions for
the commemoration of his memory
led to the design of a campanile by
Professor Eliel Sarineen, then of the
Architectural college. With great
skill, the Finnish architect translated
the marks of Dr. Burton, as they im-
pressed him into architectual lines.
At that time, it was the hope of the
Student council which sponsored the
design that the campanile might be
given by individual donors, while the
funds for the memorial chimes to be
placed some day in the campanile
might be at least started by the stu-
dents. Since then, the fund for the
latter has been increased by contri-
butions of various classes as well as
by -individuals. The campanile itself
has been incorporated in the plans
for the University buildings' north
of the present campus, being placed
at 'the end of the mall extending
north from the Library.
Now; as three years ago, the erec-
tion of this memorial to Michigan's
great executive seems particularly
fitting. The intervening time has, if
anything, enhanced the greatness of
President Burton. Among the stu-
dents any endeavor toward furthering
the project would now be particularly
timely since the present senior class.

Editor of Toasted Rolls:
In order that I may head the col-
umn of kidders who will advance with
embattled pencil-points on The Daily's
statement this morning that I had
"likened students to pups," may I be
permitted to kid myself a bit by the
assumption that the student body is
interested in anything I might say.
In the course of an interview in
which I have my rambling and maybe
mistaken impressions of what I infer
the University college will be. I al-
luded to H. C. Bunner's story of Hec-
tor. (Bunner, as antiquarians among
the student body may know, was ed-
itor of "Puck" and a popular story
teller of the "Gay Nineties"--and they
were gay enough in spots.) Hector
was an awkward scrambling, 150
pound mastiff whose elderly maiden
owner anxiously asked the policeman
of her beat whether a dog could be
so big and yet not be mature. Not
having seen Hector, the policeman
was puzzled and asked hopefully, "Do
his feet fit 'im?" "No." "Well, thin.
he's still a pup." I said I understood
the University college to be planned
as a better device to carry freshmen
into and through the sophomore year,
with less pain and fewer casualties,
to the point where their intellectual
and spiritual feet fitted them.
The allusion to Bunner's Hector
as I made it may not have been over-
delicate; knifed right down to the
bleeding skull, as the reporter scalped
it, it is terrible.
This communication may be too
long for Rolls, but if possible I should
like to have printed in your column
rather than anywhere else, for the
sake of publicity.

WE ALSO WONDER if the Secre-

feet of the students means to imply
that their brains are in their feet.

seemed to be the fact.

never presents a set program, by the
way, but selects at random from a

Somerset Maugham has a glittering
facility for gilding the banal mutter-
ing of ordinary conversation with a
leaf of wit, and of tingeing it with a
suggestion of the epigrammatic. Com-
monplace and repetition-weary situa-
tions under such treatment, especially
when a sure sense of the comic touch-1
ed with pathos is added, become smart
sequences in a fascinating train and
the inevitable result, forgetting for
the moment the vapid burbling of
critical effervescence, is to make the
self conscious bachelor determine on
a Bond street suit and the likewise de-
butante sigh for whatever debutantesl
sigh for from Paris.
The local production of Maugham's
raillery will owe a large part of itsI
success to the emotional efforts of
Norman Hackett who divides the hon-
Iors of the lead with "Charlotte Walker,I
Lou Te41egen, and Emma Bunting.
Hackett, famous clubman and manj
about town of his class, '98, is a shin-
ing example of a prophet who is not
without honor even in his own land,
and as such will be made the piece de
resistance of receptions and whatnot
in this glorious town all day today.
Tonight he will do his stuff for the
local hero-worshippers.

Keenly penetrative, wonderfully
well-informed, free of all jingoism
and prejudice, this work comes from
Europe to startle the smug c-
placency of the American. Not that
M. Siegfried has deliberately tried to
sensationalize but he has gathered
all the facts and carefully collated
and interpreted them to bring out the
thing that really is the American
The author begins by asking "Will
America remain Protestant and An-
glo-Saxon?" He considers the Amer-
ican tradition to be that of Protestant
Puritanism-the inheritance of New
England. He traces the various waves
of immigration and the attempts at
assimilation of the foreign elements;
then the manifestations of the Pro-
testant tradition in America.
In the economic field, the author
showers great praise on America. Our
unparalleled wealth, our high stand-
ard of living, our national resources,
our methods of mass production are
contrasted with the shabby genteel

'onditions of Europe. For the future
in economics, he says, America must
depend on her powers in mass pro-
duction and specialization to retain
her place in world trade. Even now,
the natural resources are giving out,
