Within twenty four hour, the large
majority of Michigan students will
leave Ann Arbor for a week's vaca-
tion. They will return to their home
localities where they are known as
college students. With the usual cu-
riosity with which both their broth-
ers and sisters in high school and
their older friends regapd the college
youth, they will be eagerly and cir-
cumspectly greeted.
Uiderstanding students, therefore,
have often taken care that they truly
and thoroughly represent the college
community which has always proved
itself interesting to, the rest of the
citizenry. Cautions on conduct or1any
other negativeadvice however, though
effective in a few cases have generally
been futile, as might well be expected.
In avery positive way on the other
band, Mlichigan studerts may assist
their univ rsity in establishing con-
tact wit prospctive students out-
standing in . scholastic and athletic
ability. th increasing entrance re-
quirement narroing the field for fu-
ture Michigan students, this service
is more than ever, in demand. If Mich-
igan demands students with better
and better preparatory scholastic av-

erages, and yet maintain her stand-
ard in other fields as general cul-
ture, intelligence, social affability, and
athletic. ability, she must encourage
attendance of the best prospects avail-
With the date of the annual New
York Times current events contest
approaching close at hand, and the
final day of entry for, the April 20
contest set, it is perhaps not out of
place to make a final mention of the
event. The meet offers, in addition
to the reward in personal satisfaction
from a knowledge of the world's oc-
curences, a chance to win one of the
several excellent monetary awards,
and is one of the most valuable, if one
of the least heralded, of the regular
campus contests.
To add a word to extol the merit
of such an. affair would be super-
fluous, for, there is likely no dissent-
ing voice. What the event needs,
however, most of all is students who
combine interest and appreciation

To the editor:
As I look back over my two years
on the Michigan campus I am consid-
ergbly surprised to find that gradually
a change has been manifest that is,
to me, disastrous. It is a change in
campus spirit. Two years ago the
juniors and seniors , who knew me
laughed at my enthusiasm for this
spirit, and said, "You should have
known Michigan a year or two ago."
I was sufficiently excited over things
as they existed when I first came to
give little thougt to their staite-
ment. It comes back to me now. I
want to say, as a sophomore to fresh-
men, you should have seen Michigan
last year. It was a little better than
Whatever school spirit Michigan
boasted last year, or the years be-
fore that, has gradually died, or been
subdued, until now, when a few male
students, filled to overflowing with
pent-up enthusiasm, break into a pro-
verbially-hated portion of the campus
with, every intention, of creating a bit
of excitement and lending zest to the
occasion, immediate attention of the
"Discipline Committee" is called to
their action, and a small notice ap-
pears in The Daily "Defer action on
dance intruders. . . " Three or four
years ago, I am told, such an out-
break would have created only a lot
of fun. But at that, the thing is over
now, and I would suggest that the
thing "ride" until "swing-out," when
the lawyers may have their revenge
on the engineers-a well-deserved re-
venge, to be sure, but perhaps a clev-
er and interesting one.
Instead of this, there is talk of
"sending down" some of the out-
standing engineering students, in or-
der to "teach a lesson." Such an ob-
jective to have in mind is ruining
the college caleers of otherwise ex-
cellent students. I -am entirely dis-
gusted with the whole thing.
And if the students of Michigan had
any backbone, any organization to
their forces, such arbitrary actions as
have recently been taken with regard
to petty offenses would not have been
possible. I am thinking now more
of the future students of our one-time
great school than of the individuals in
this particular case. It seems to me
that college spirit is nothing of which
to be ashamed. It has to be curbed
to a certain extent-but it does not
have to be killed. It is no weed or
undergrowth that must be cut out of
the Univesity. It is a vital part of
the whole scheme of affairs. College
spirit is what make alma mater mean
something to the alumni of a school.
If we are to have all the things that
ordinarily make the memory of a four
year college course taken from us-
automobile riding, driving through
the famous Boulevard, enmity between
laws and engineers, swing-out rival-
ry-what,I ask you, is the advantage
of coming to Ann Arbor to attend
the University? Why not take corre-
spondence courses? .I grow heartsick
and then disgusted at the ease with
which undesirable things are forced
on a student body composed, suppos-
edly ,of the upper fraction of our pop-
ulation. If our rights and privileges
are to be stamped on outriageously
while in college, and we take it meek-
ly, and are driven into the desired
corners like frightened mice, what,
I wonder, will any of us amount to
when we become "the leaders of the

Pep meetings seem to have lost their
appeal. Student assemblies are only
memories in the minds of those of
us who had older sisters and brothers
on the campus in the past. We have
absolutely no organization among us-
and utterly disgriaceful measures are
forced upon us-disgraceful to what-
ever remnants of intelligence we may
possess-while we sit patiently by and
attend classes with a submission that
speaks not too well for our mental
equipment or the elusive qualities that
makes for real men and women.
While you are home over Spring
Recess, student-body of our mutual

tus of things on your campus. Can
it continue? Or shall we who should

faire of our school exercise that

A review, by R. Leslie Askren
Someone with a showman's instincts
has taken the Varsity Bafld inhand and
made a spectacle out of it. In a bowl
of amber light, they were blue-carven
images on stools of gold, with the
Glee club flanking them like black
winged devils, seared white in front.
But they made music. * Perhaps a
band is good for nothing but martial
blaring or beer garden diversion, but
Director Falcone has invaded the field
of the symphony orchestra, and the
success of his performance last night
is suggestive. The Schubert number
was, however, written directly for the
capacities of a brass band and was
well handled, although its appearance
on an Easter program is a bit out .of
taste. The "Tannhauser" selections
were not very successful. They drag-
ged, lacking the spiritual fire an or-
chestra could have given. But in the
same field, Beethoven's "Moonlight
Sonata" was a remarkable achieve-
ment. It was smoother and better
modulated than I ever thought a band
could be, the brsses producing a-
most organ tones, which gave a splen-
did symphonic effect. The cornet and
baritone solos were a bit unfortunate
for the reason that the music was ob-
viously too difficult for the abilities
of Austin and Mercier, good as they
are. It was rather a stupid effort.
The Glee club, which assisted in
the program, escaped the pitfall that
shares mst clubs by keeping their
songs strictly lynical and out of the
preciosity of silly musical sentiment.
As usual, the tenors were pitifully
weak, but, the sturdy spirit of the
singing forgave that.
One note of irony. Dr. Anderson,
Presbyterian minister, gave a short
Easter address, semi-religious,-and
the audience applauded!
Th most-pretentious production of
the season at the Bonstelle Playhouse
is "Saint Joan," now there for this
week and next, and according to those
who have Journeyed to see it, it is I
one of the best. The epilogue was
produced at a Guild meeting, and its
success encouraged Miss Bonstelle to
obtain the original costumes and sets
from the Theater Guild, and produce
it n toto. Eden Gray and Clara Cle-
mens (Mrs. Osip Gabrilowitsch, who
had her version of her father's poem on
the road so long) are alternating in
the title role, and Charles Living-
stone, sacred to the memory of Mimes'
successes last year and this, is given
his first real lart-that of the dau-
phin-and according to Len G. Shaw
and others wins his spurs and several
other things besides.
The Rockford Players, who have
held the boards at the Whitney so
long and so well, leave at the end of
this week. Their departure is to be
very sincerely mourned, for they've
had a successful season; it has almost
been prosperous, and at least put a
couple of bricks in the VWomens lea-

gue building; and they've given at'
least seven or eight good shows. There
have been lapses, but the memory of
"Hedda Gabler"-the divine Miss
Kearns! "The Barker," "Outward
Bound," "Cradle Snatchers," "Candi-
da," "The Old Lady Shows Her Med-
als," and "Great Catherine" wipe out"
any artistic stain on the 'scutcheon.
The Players themselves have achiev-
ed sundry personal successes and tri-
umphs; there have been few failures,
even when difficult character work
was demanded. There are possibili-
ties that they may be back in the
fall for a twenty weeks season or
some such matter, and at least there's
the summer session. The glory of the!
stage is evanescent and gossamer, but
