One of the most signal honors which
has come to the University through
its teaching staffs in recent years is
the appointment of Prof. Laurence
Gould of the geology.department as a
member of the expedition which will
accompany Commander Richard Byrd
in his much heralded trip to the South
Pole next winter. Chosen as he was,
from more than 2,000 applicants for
the less than 60 positions in Com-
mander Byrd's party, the honor is a
distinct recognition not only of Pro-
fessor Gould's genial character but
of his sterling scientific attainments
To the many congratulations from
his personal friends locally, the Uni-
versity adds its own for the youthful
professor who has already merited
such singular recognition. To the un-
explored wastes of the Antarctic con-
tinent the expedition will carry the
quest for scientific knowledge, and
there are few men who could better
represent the University of Michigan
and the science of geology in such an
undertakinf thnn "T arrv" Gould.
vu- ' TiE BAG
Someone has let the cat out of the
bag again, with the result that a hor-
rible state of corruption within the
Republican party has been exposed
to the avid gaze of the general public
far and wide. Moralists are throwing
up their hands in horror and crying
out against the fact that Will Hays
accepted a little $260,000 donation
from men who wanted leases on gov-
ernment oil lands. Some radical per-
sons have gone so far as to declare
that they will not vote the Republi-
can ticket in the November elections.
All of this is rather pitiful. Nearly
everyone knowssthat graft in Ameri-
can politics exists-but there is no use
to make a public display of the thing.
How much better it would be if the
Republicans were to find some clever
and astute crooks to head their party
finances-some men who could keep
the think quiet-rather than allow the
whole country in on what should be a
strictly family affair.
7f the Republicans are to retain
public confidence something of this
nature must be accomplished. It is
asking almost too much to request
that any political party adhere to high
principles of integrity in its dealings,
to install an honor system in finance;
States to supervise the October pres-
idential elections-thus blowing to
tatters the carefully founded plan by
which the Washington government
planned to oversee the choosing of the
next Nicaraguan government. Wash-
ington has replied summarily that it
will sup-ervise the voting anyway, and
that if the Nicaraguans do not care
for the policy they need not to vote.
All of which seems to indicate
rather definitely that in spite of
America's professed unselfishness and
admitted fatherly interest, the Nicara-
guan elections will be held under
American supervision only if the
marines keep a machine gun at every
polling booth and a bombing airplane
ready for every assembly hall. The
issue resolves itself into the simple
question as to whether or not the
United States desires to take a nomi-
nal protectorate over the Republic of
Nicaragua; if such is the case, an
honest admission of the policy might
help the American conscience; if such
is not the case, there is no reason
why the Washington government
should not allow to Nicaragua a free
election-with the Chammorroistas,
the progressives, and the other fac-
tions all sharing equal campaign op-
There are more effective ways than
a dog-catcher to keep dogs off of the
campus-and the B. and G. depart-
ment has apparently discovered it.
The difficulty lies in the fact that the
scheme somewhat disregards the stu-

To the Editor:
The literary faculty finally decided
on rejection of the University college.
They spent four meetings discussing
the problem, each time postponing
action. At the fourth meeting a mo-
tion was passed to take a vote at a
certain time. A close vote decided for
a rejection on the grounds of finance.
What does the delay and the result
signify? They signify that the liter-
ary faculty could find nothing wrong
with the plan, but that several, in fear
of having their departments cut or
their jobs lost, as a last resort, re-
jected the plan on the time-worn plea
of finance. Then too, financing the
innovation would not be the respon-
sibility of the literary faculty. Hence,
why the concern?
To any incoming freshman the
present breach between instructor and
student is a radical change from the
close contact in high school. This
sudden change of system would be
eliminated by the proposed University
college; this elimination itself is
worth instituting the plan.
When the engineering college fac-
ulty rejected the plan because of its
harmful tendencies to their school,
they were logically justified. But they
did not delay four days finally to ad-
vance another consideration under
which they might take safe refuge
because of personal reasons or be-
cause of enmity to its authors.
Certainly the University college has
merit. The question for each school
to decide is whether its merit is suf-
ficently conducive to its welfare. For
any problem worthwhile money
should always be a secondary matter.

AIDING THE MINERS
March 13, 1928.
To the Editor:
After reading your pertinent art-
icles on the conditions of the miners
in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Colorado
rind especially your excellent editorial
in this morning's paper, I should like
to take advantage of this opportunity
of informing the student body that a
group of students have banded to-
gether some three weeks ago and or-
ganized a Miners' Relief committee
which has since solicited useful
clothing, imperishable food and money
for the relief of the miners' dire needs
and, in particular, for the several
hundred thousand mothers and chil-
dren who are indirectly connected
with the struggle.
Announcement has been made
through several of the churches and
other organizations in Ann Arbor. It
is quite probable that there are more
students who if they knew about it
would like to heln if only h ysndino.

IL CIRCOLO ITALIANO
A review, by Oscar R. Fuss
Building a framework with such
popular numbers as "0 Sole Mio,"
"Santa Lucia," "Casttigliana" and
"La Spagnola" around a program de-
voted to selections from Italian oper-
as, Il Circolo Italiano presented an
interesting musicale yesterday eve-
ning. Though recitatives and arias
from the operas written by Italian
composers or composers showing the
Italian influence, which were essen-
tially melodic in character, predomi-
nated, the program was well propor-
tioned. Among the selections from
non-Italian composers, "La Ci Darem
La Man," the beautiful melodic duet
from Mozart's opera "Don Giavonni"
was exceedingly well given by Miss'
F. Rarden and A. E. Sutton. Mr. Patton
sang with much feeling "Lucean Le
Stelle" from Puccini's opera "Tosca,"
while C. Staubach vivified the abun-
dant harmony of the "Intermezzo Sin-
foncio." The Italian composer Pon-
chielli was represented by his "Voce
Di Donna," which Miss F. Shiff sung
with much skill. Supplementing and
correlating with the operatic selec-
tions, the Italian club sang in chorus
a number of Italian folksongs.
The program, employing as it did
the semi-classical numbers was well
received by the audience; a fact,E
which other organizations, contem-
plating musical programs in the fu-
ture may take heed of, if they wish to
appeal to that portion of the Univer-
sity musical public which, it seems,
is able, or perhaps, willing to appre-
ciate semi-classical music.

THE HAPPY COLLEGIANS
By Hot Stuff.
Monday being a mild day, Stuff and
I decides to go canoeing. That eve-
ning we trails over to the river with
a couple of dames in tow. After rap-
ping three times and giving the coun-
tersign-"Long Live the Regents"-I
to the guy who runs the boathouse,
we trips in and plunks down two dol-
lars for a deposit.
"Another two bucks," sez the An-
cient Mariner, "two bucks more for
a deposit on a chaperon. Lose the
chaperon and you lose the deposit]
Well, Stuff and I cough up and each
of us settles ourselves in a canoe-
with the chaperons perched between
us and our dates. As we rides out to
sea the chaperon in my schooner rigs
up a long pole over us and presses a
button and there we are with an are
light glaring down on us. Then theI
old lady ropes me off from the girl
and settles back for a quiet ride.
Well, about this time, Mary (that'sj
the girl friend's name) drops her
handkerchief on the seat beside her.
Along comes a bouncing little baby
breeze and carries the little hanky
back to me. I give 'er the one-two
blow, jab with my left and hook it
with my right., Well, there I am,
thinking what a regular wide-awake
goshdingit I am. Well, I reaches past
the chaperon to give Mary what's her
own. She reaches back and our hands
Horrors! Before I can say "C. C.?
Little," a cannon booms out and the:
chaperon shrieks. About 500 steam
whistles start blowing, bells begin
clanging away and a whole flock of
headlights is turned on us from
Before I even have time to cough
up the pipe I've swallowed in the ex-
citement, a whole merchant marine
pops up from nowhere and comes
chasing out after us.
Babee! Looks as if we're in for it.
While I tries to soothe the yelling
chaperon by gently fondling her
windpipe, I casts an eyeball over to

Gilbert and Sullivan have come and
seen Detroit, but thus far they have
not conquered. All last week, Win-k
throp Ames' splendid company played
three of the masters' most famous
operettas, but Detroit has failed to
clutch the opportunity and the com-
pany enters its second and final week,
running at a considerable loss.
After some recent observances of
Detroit theater-goers, the reason may
be apparent to some. In a village
where a crowd will be so discourteous
as to stand and leave as a body whilej
the musicians are taking their first,
final bows, (as happened at the
Gershwin-D'Alvarez concert), hardly
more can be expected. The recent
influx of hilarious and sometimes
doubtful musical comedies and drama
have been taken too seriously, and it
appears that many of the theater-
goers cannot see beyond the "humor"
of "Abie's Irish Rose" which is now
packing them in down the street and
drawing laughs for the subtle humor
of appendices and "Momma" and
The small crowds which attended
the productions of last week were I
most appreciative, which renews hope
that the Detroit theater patrons are
not hopelessly lost. The subtle sar-
casm on English institutions was not
lost by many in the audiences, and
the music, while not jazzy and thump-
ing as so much. of the popular music
is at present, often brought forth ap-
plause and expressions of real appre-
It may be that the people are some-
what leary of Gilbert and Sullivan.
Even in our own institution of learn-
ing, many thought them to be about
the same as Aida and Carmen. Detroit
seems to be just awakening from a
theatrical lethargy, and the produc-
tions which have played there recently
have been a great improvement over
former material. Gilbert and Sulli-
van are admitted masters of the light
operatic field, and perhaps all Detroit
needs is more familiarity with their
