Adopted in a rather unassuming
manner, and escaping the attention it
deserves is the newly formed plan of
the Athletic association to construct
an artificial ice rink at the Coliseum,
making skating possible five months
in the year, and to add thirty tennis
courts to the equipment of the Univer-
sity, including sixteen for women.
Ice skating and tennis are among
the most beneficial forms of exercise
which can be participated in by large
numbers without undue expenditure
of money, and they are forms of sport
which have been continuously cramp-
ed by lack of adequate facilities. The
results of this program of physical
welfare cannot help but be reflected
In the abilities of the athletic teams,
and in promotion of the all-round
physical welfare of the student body.
The work of restoring normal re-
lations between Prance and Germany

which has been so, heartily fostered
by such leaders as Briand and Strese-
mann has had more that the expected
success. It is thought in certain quar-
ters that the two countries have come
to an understanding never before
reached. But here the progress is at
last blocked by a single barrier, the
occupation of Rhineland by Allied
In the past it has been considered
the practice to leave troops in the
conquered sector to insure the carry-
ing out of obligations and the com-
plete cessation of hostilities. It was
not without reason that a maximum
number of years for this occupation
was always designated, and nearly
always evacuation has occurred be-
fore that time. The treaty of Versail-
les specified 15 years as a maximum,
and recommended an earlier date if
all were satisfied. There is little rea-
son for the Allies not being satisfied
at present..
France insists on occupation only
on, the grounds of reparation's insur-
ance, but the Dawes plan has settled
the question as far as it can be set-
tied at the present time. The security
of Alsace-Lorraine is guaranteed by
the Locarno pact, and to argue that
either territorial or financial security
is not provided is to gainsay both Ver-
sailles and Locarno. or any other !

To the editor:
Sunday's communication to The
Daily from three senior engineering
students differed considerably from
the average contribution which finds
its way into the Campus Opinion col-
umn. The communication was con-
servatively written, respectfully sub-
mitted and seemed to indicate honest
thought on the proposed University
college. But on a few points I find
my opinion in opposition to the view
of the senior engineers.
The gentlemen wrote as though
they felt primarily, allegiance to the
engineering college, and secondarily,
allegiance to'the University of Michi-
gan; as though they were students of
the engineering school, and of the
University only incidentally. Such
spirit of segregation, if made general
upon the campus, could only lead to
friction and possibly open hostility
between the schools of the campus,
paralleling the animosity apparently
existing between the engineers and
the law students. So I say, the
spirit, apparently animating the wri-
ters of Sunday's article, is a wrong
one and can lead to no good end. Hav-
ing this misdirected spirit, the writers
are then alarmed with the prospect
of a decreased enrollment with the
inauguration of the University college.
Whether such diminution of enroll-
ment would result or not is beside
the point. It is seldom the mere size
of student enrollment which ma-
terially affects the standing of a
school. But let that be as it may. If
the President and the University col-
lege committee are convinced that the
proposal is a step forward, engineer-
ing students should, as students of
the University, look with favor -upon
the change and aid in every way pos-
sible to further the project. We want
no serious division of interests on
campus-wide problems, but rather full
accord from all quarters.
The engineers fear for their honor
system if the University college were
established. How the system would
be injured it is difficult to see. It is
more than likely that eventually all
the schools on the campus will fol-
low the engineering school to hold
their examinations under the Honor
system. The system might be estab-
lished in the University college from
the very first, giving the embryo-
engineers full introduction to the
methods of the system before enter-
ing the engineering school proper.
But if such were not the case, what
of it? The system operates in the
Medical school as in the engineering
school and first year medical students
enter the first year with little chance
of acquaintanceship with the system.
Surely the engineering honor system
could be no more inconvenienced
than is the Medical school system
now, if entering students had written
examinations under the proctor sys-
tem in the University college.
The interest expressed by the senior
engineers in the opinion of the fac-
ulty of the engineering school on the
matter of the University college is
admirable. Their interest indicates
a willingness to consider and col-
laborate in discussing Michigan's
problems. I, too, am much interested
in the opinion of the engineering fac-
ulty, but I believe that the faculty
will be more inclined to regard the
problem fron, a broader viewpoint
which has the future of the University
of Michigan rather than that of the
engineering school as the cardinal

tenet. Whether or not the University
college becomes a reality, I hold that
the final decision which will make or
break the proposal must be broader
in its outlook than that expressed
Sunday, and must be campus-wide
and even state-wide. Let our un-
divided interests be for Michigan and
not our divided interests for integral
parts of the whole. Let us regard
this problem along with the President
and the University college committee
from the standpoint of the greatest;
good which can come for the Univer-
sity of Michigan.

Half the fun at a faculty concert

sical moods and with the exception of
one or two impossible moments, was
a delightful experience. The Irish
Rhapsody, beginning in a mood of

into themes of exalted melody, was

In "Outward Bound" Sutton Vane
caught a gorgeous idea. The transi-
tion period between physical death'
and spiritual disposition either to
heaven or Hell must have been a
part of every playwright's dreams at'
some time or other but it remained
for Vane to give it form in his fas-
inatingly satirical play. The first
two acts are splendid mystery melo-
drama glittering with clever dialogue
and create a wonderful' suspense
which is carried through, for all the
banality of the third act, to a dramatic
clihax of great force.
Two remarkable performances il-
luminated the play, Mrs. Mansfield's
"Midget" and Velna Royton's "Helen."
The cockney charwoman was splendid
with her earthly faith which flamed
to tremendotus dramatic height for
her sacrifice in the last act and Mrs.
Mansfield's painstaking and rich in-
terpretation made the role the best
one of her season in Ann Arbor.
