the work, to be paid entirely by the
federal government, with a commis-
sion of three, one of them the chief
of the army engineering corps, in
charge of the work.
The merits of the compromise as
opposed to the two extreme measures
are very apparent, and the immediate
agreement to the measure by both
partisan factions in thesrSenate is
gratifying. Similar success probably
awaits the introduction of the meas-
ure in the House, though the Cool-
idge faction is much more powerful
there than in the upper branch, ad
if finally passed, the bill will repre-
sent a monument to the labors of the
Senate flood control committee and
to the compromising genius of Sen.
Andrieus A. Jones of New Mexico who
devised it.
Since it was inaugurated two years
ago, the student cheering section at
the fooball games, operated with a
more or less indifferent degree of
success, hasbeen a constant prob-
lem-not only to the athletic author-
ities themselves but to the students
who have taken the responsibility for
the enterprise through the Student
council. Changes have steadily been
made, and improvements have been
worked out, nevertheless, notably the
system whereby' students are not re-
quired to sit in the section for all of
the games if they sign up for it, and
with the advent of another football
season, with still further alterations,
the cheering section should be ready
to take its place beside the other
permanent traditions of Michigan as
a desirable phase of the football sea-
It is encouraging to note that work
toward the accomplishment of the
section will start this spring, instead
of being allowed to wait until next
fall, when only a feverish campaign
can "put the thing across" before the
start of the football season. The
plan to send literature to incoming
freshmen with all of the other ad-
vance notices of the University is a
good one, and one which should save
countless explanations and propagan-
dizing next fall, and the proposed
plan to canvass the present student
body and build the nucleus' of the
section before the football ticket ap-
plications are even prepared, seems
to be the soundest yet advanced. Cer-
tain freak ideas, such as obtaining
cooperation of the fraternities to
force their freshmen to sit in the sec-
tion, can be dismissed as impractical,
though perhaps some of their good
points can be finally incorporated to
All in all, the early start which
the Student council has made in al-
ready having appointed the committee
is encouraging in the extreme. The
cheering section is a project poten-
tially worthy of permanent develop-
ment, and at least worth a fair trial.
There is slight doubt but that the
students desire the section, and if
the means of obtaining support are
made only reasonably efficient and
reasonably sound, it is inevitable that
the project will be carried to notable

WE THINK IT would be a dirty
trick for the lawyers to take it be-
cause they wouldn't know what to
do with it anyway. Rolls will offer
a reward to anyone who returns the
slide rule to the Engineers.

NOW IT REALLY seems mean to
take the rule away because the En-
gineers will not be able to add or sub-'
tract or do any other kind of ma-
nipulation of figures without it. They
have forgotten how to use their heads.

IT REALLY ISN'T fair to our read-
ers to tell stories we hear in class
but our political science professor
told a real one today so grin and
bear it.

THE STORY GOES like this: It
was back in the days when Woodrow
Wilson was president of the United
States and Marshall. was vice-presi-
dent. The president went to a cer-
tain show in Washington and during
the course of it there was a scene
in which the theater was almost dark,
most of the lights being turned down.
The Secret Service department had
been careful and no one shot the
president. After the show our pro-
fessor, who was present, happened to
meet a Democratic Congrcssman who
was also present. They h'iscussed the
play and the professor finally asked
the Congressman what he thought of
act when the lights were out.
"I didn't see much of that act," the
Congressman replied, "I was watching
Woodrow Wilson, and I had my gun
with me. If anyone had shot the
president, I would have taken a shot
at Marshall."
ulty gave their opinions the other day
on how college will aid in business.
One said that personality helps in the
bond business. It's not personality,
but that certain power which enables
a young man to walk into the office
of some big executive, slap him on the
back, show him how to run his busi-
ness, and make him buy bonds.

Will help in real estate. After taking
a course in accounting we admit that
the man who can learn that will be
a successful bookkeeper. What debits
and credits mean to real estate is
beyond us.
WHEN WE WERE in Chicago re-
cently we went into the office of a
prominent company and applied for
a job. For some reason or other we
got to speak to an officer of the con-'
cern. When he asked us as to our
qualifications we stated that we had!
a college education. On hearing this
he exploded, "No college man will'
work for me." As we left the office we
replied, "Who mentioned work?"
Mr. Rolls:
Stuff and I went to a French class
the other day. The prof. there, a
Frenchman himself, remarked rather'
dramatically that Frenchmen were the
best lovers in the world. Just as
every pretty girl in the class settled
back with a sigh of relief, seeing
herself being handed an "A" on a sil-
ver platter, the prof. cruelly blasted
all their hopes by adding, "But this
Frenchman is married." And now

FRIADY, MARCH 30, 1928
To possess scientific and mechani-
cal equipment is an excellent thing
for any university; to use this equip-
ment intensely for the instruction of
students is still more laudable: and
to throw this equipment open to the
student body in general for the cul-
tural value it may have is a policy
that deserves at least as much at-
tention as it receives.
Last week end the engineering col-
lege staged an exhibit of popular in-
terest which was an extremely line
step; and it is similarly gratifying
to learn that the astronomy depart-
ment, with its excellent new equip-
ment on the fifth floor of Angell hall,
is planning a parallel enterprise to-
night and tomorrow night when the
student body in general will be allow-
cd to use the telescope there.
There is probably little of direct
scientific value in such a visitors'
night to the cause of astronomy; but
to the broad view of general educa-
tion, and to aid in rounding outdthat
cultural viewpoint which should -be
the portion of every college graduate,
such non-scientific instruction is of
high merit. To be a specialist in one
field is valuable, but it is becoming
generally recognized to a constantly
greater degree that there is more than
specialization in the most valuable of
educational organizations.. To this
end, and to the end of developing pub-
lic interest, visitors' nights such as
those arranged last week by the en-
gineers and this week end by the
astronomy, department are extremely
worthwhile. The interest displayed
by the student body generally in both
affairs should encourage further en-
terprises of the kind.
The unanimous passage of the
Jones compromise flood control bill'
through the Senate Wednesday, be-'
sides constituting almost a perfect
model of legislative efficiency (the
whole deliberation on the floor oc-'
cupied only one hour and 26 min-
utes), settles, at least as far as the
Senate is concerned, one of the para-
mount problems of the present ses--
The Jones bill does more than this,
however, for besides assuring the
Mississippi valley of federal aid in

A review, by VIneent Wall
Mary Boland and new farce com-
edy arrived simultaneously at the
Cass theater this week. The play it-
self is a rowdy caper, possessed of a
certain sophomoric humor, but not
promising to be a particularly sturdy
vehicle for the Messrs. Harris and
Short, who are doing the honors. How-
ever, since Miss Boland is a bounc-
ing comedienne, and since she bounces
high and often, the script is enlivened
sufficiently' to make sprightly enter-
The authors of "Don't Count Your
Chickens"-Robert Riskin and Edith
Fitzgerald-have turned a broad
smile on the bar sinister and con-
cocted an occasionally witty comedy
concerning the humors of very free
love. A nice young lady finds her-
self desiring marital connection with
a poet who doesn't care to restrain
his sex life within the barbarous con-
vention of holy wedlock. At the sug-
gestion of her very newly divorced
and broad-minded mother, she inti-
mates to her lover that there is to
be a little stranger in the home (she
doesn't resort to the crude device of
sewing on a little garment, however)
and overcome by his unexpected viril-
ity, he falls into awed matrimony.
When nature fails to take her course
during the second act, there is trou-
ble a-brewing, and the expected
scurrying around to provide an off-
spring. The Truth outs at an in-
convenient time and it takes several
very hasty play-saving devices to
bring down a chaste curtain.
Spotlessly acted by such capable
Mimes as Sylvia Sidney, Miss Boland,'
Charles Eaton,- Raymond Hackett,
Maude Eburne, Anna Thomas, and
Paul Hervey, there is considerable
brazen and jaunty humor. Sylvia Sid-
ney, having both beauty and talent
utilizes both. And largely due to her
efforts and those of Miss Boland,
whom we consider the funniest lady
clown on the legitimate,

Tonight and tomorrow night at 8
o'clock in the Masonic Temple the
Ann Arbor High School Musical .or-
ganizations will give the Gilbert and
Sullivan operetta, "Pirates of Pen-
zance." The plot is based on the
misunderstanding of a boy's mother,
who, being partially deaf, mistook the
word pirate for pilot and apprenticed
him to a band of brigands. Having
been born on the 29 of February, and
because his contracts did not expire
until his twenty-first birthday, his ap-
prenticeship 'was to last for life.
G. E. S.
Seldom is the campus given the
opportunity to;hear and converse with
some established gentleman of letters.
Those that have graced the. portals of
"the Athens of the West," have done
so like Spring' days in March-beau-
tifully but uickly. Alfred Noyes

once stopped over long enough to
read his poems in Hill auditorium.'
Jessie Lynch Williams once occupied
a room in the Michigan Union. And
our own G. D. Eaton once stood be-
hind the log table in Natural Science
auditorium. But two years ago there
appeared one, whom Professor
Strauss has affectionately labeled as
"our poet." He sat for a year in the
sole literary chair of the University.
That was two years ago, and since
then poetic inspiration has declined,
except for the Inlander. But now "our
poet" has returned. And those of
you who were unable to hear him lastj
Wednesday, will have a final oppor-
tunity this afternoon at 4:15 o'clock
in the Mimes theater. And if you
then miss him, henceforth and forever
more hold your inspiration.

have been read here frequently be-

To the editor:
I am sorry to say that what Pro-
fessor Gale's statement in The Michi-
gan Daily of March 28, "that China
will be closely united is to be serious-
ly doubted" is absolutely not well
founded. During the last few years
China cannot unify is partly due to
militarists who fight for their self-
interests and partly due to foreign
imperialists standing at the back of
them, and thus are the cause of the
incessant civil war in China.
At the present time these co-work-
ers, militarists and imperialists, shall
be perished; the chief obstacle of
China'sl unification may be removed
pretty soon. Furthermore, the Na-
tionalist government is founded on
the principles of the late Dr. Sun
Yat-Sen, all armies within its juris-
diction are undisputably loyal to and
controlled by her. There is no more
single militarisits who ventures to
fight for egotistic purpose and places
himself above his own party.
Now the unification of China is be-
come a popular demand, there is no
force that can block this movement,
so I dare say that China within a
short period will ,reach this goal.
The factors mentioned by Prof. Gale'
against China's unification are to
some extent quite true, but he for-
