The Daily staff can have a place to

it or not, the students are rather
tired of this rank publication, and it
is high time that efforts at so-called

a change.
With no respect, apparently, for the
economic factor involved, the Uni-
versity is planning another Cap Night.
Just why this event should be re-
peated year after, year, when experi-
ence has shown that the caps burned
are totally useless thereafter, is rath-
er mysterious to those who think ser-
iously on such matters, and with the
coming of the Alumni University and
other crazy ideas, together with the
already existing automobile ban, it is
only fair that the University should
cut the corner] close and save where-
ever possible.
It is a revolutionary suggestion, but
a sound one, that in place of burn-
ing the pots the freshmen be allowed
to toss them into a giant baler. When
sold, the wool thereby gathered can'
be used to help defray the cost of
numerous costly University projects.
The auto ban alone is at present
draining $10,000 a year from the cof-
fers of our institution, and if the sale
of the pots netted only half this sum
it would aid considerably. . It is pair-
ticularly fitting, moreover, that the
freshmen class of this year ,be al-
lowed to contribute in this manner,
being the first class to enjoy the ban
for a full four years. It is to be hoped
that the University authorities will
take the matter under consideration.

statement that voters should consid-

This paper heartily endorses the
proposal that the University be chang-

It seems a shame, however, to see
such a worthy and conservative sheet

On Tuesday afternoon 89 men and

Perhaps' if this were an ordinary
issue of The Daily we should con-
gratulate the neophytes, but since this
is not, we shall take a G. D. Eaton
attitude, being one of the few not
elected Tuesday. But just who would
wear one of the dumb keys-it is
rumored in official circles that Eaton
will tender a darn good job on "Plain
Talk" to any Michigan man or women
turning down the key.
It will be remembered that Eaton
was a Michigan man a few years back,
though one would scarcely guess it
from the content of his article in the
iecent issue of College Humor. He
was selected for Phi Beta honors (?)
but had the courage of his convic-
tions and refused.

the B and G boys removed a veryj

rolls contributors haven't written
about much of anything else for the
last couple of years. Since this is
all supposed to be good, clean fun
we can't use any jokes that the Gar-
goyle would use. And there you are.'
We just can't help announ.ing that
"Gay Paree"-the Messrs. Shuberts'
little band of 69-Beauties-69, who
are vending nudity, crudity and Gallic,
J indecency to the provinces-will beI
at the
Whitney theater next Sunday night.

The story is about the colonel's
daughter in a training camp who
spends all her time making the sol-
dier boys happy and promises to mar-
ry most of them as a part of her
work. Finally she falls in love with
one of them and wants to tie the knot
that will make them man and better
half, but the war department inter-
feres and the lad is shipped off to
France. Of course she is waiting for
him when he jumps off the boat, and
they live happily ever after, or at least
there is nothing to tell us that the
fairy story ending doesn't apply.
As far as we can see there isi't an
excuse in the world for the picturie
except that Laura LaPlante may have
been out of work for the time being
and the public was roaring to see her
Miss LaPlante does a fine job of
displaying dimples during the course
of the show and also adds a neat piece
of clowning. It happens that she per-
suades one of the soldiers to lend her
his outfit so that she can see her
sweetheart. As luck would have it
she gets into the camp during a for-
mation and review and has to take the
place of one of the men. Fortunately,
it is her father who discovers the
sex of the "little soldier" so, no harm
comes of it.
We have said before that there is
not an excuse in the world for the
picture and we wish to add that if
ever the same ham cast gets together
again the camera men should walk
out on them. It is a complete waste
of film to take pictures like this one
and they can only be sold in towns
like Ann Arbor where the students
have to go to shows to keep from be--
ing bored to death.
We might add a paragraph about
the stage bill, but we won't because
we have said so many nasty things
about the Michigan show that we feel
they may become insulted.

Phi Beta Kappa elections always were

A motion picture made known in
Ann Arbor at the Majestic theater
during the early days of the week.
With both Gloria Swanson and Lio-
nel Barrymore in the same cast a,
motion picture which is full of the
so-called drama, could not help but l
be a splendid show.
The story is that of the great stage
show "Rain" which gave Jeanne Ea-
gels such a swelled head that she
threw down a lesser prpduction the
other day and got herself suspended-
from the league for it. However, we
don't blame her much for she ditched
the show in Milwaukee and if you
have ever been to that town, well-.
But to go on with the plot of this re-
view, the story is a good one and i
you don't know it all we can say is
that you have missed something. Most
adult males have seen the show or at
least heard vivid accounts of it.
Miss Swanson, or Countess some-
thing or other as she should be call-
ed, has always been known as a great
actress and in this picture she proves
that she has lost none of her skill.
She overacts the part a little, but
perhaps that helps put it across. Mr.
Barrymore also does well, but it is
rather amusing to see him break into
Sadie Thompson's room at the end of
the play. H-e does it more in the
'role of a murderer than one who is
being urged on by passion.
The rest of the cast is fair, and
Raoul Walsh, the director, had the
nerve to cast himself in the part of
the hero. He handles the part well
and makes a nice looking marine, too
nice in fact. All in all the show is
good, give the kids a hand.
When we reach this point we should
apologize for writing this column be-
cause this is the funny issue of The
Daily when everyone does something
other than his regular work. How-
ever, the movies ar, not often re- I
viewed and we feel that the manage-

Long Distance Rates Are Surprisingly Low
For Instance:








Comedy club is planning to attempt
one of its usual plays on the campus
next week, I should like to take this
opportunity to express my disgust
for a dramatic organization which I
have never been able to make. Not
only have their plays been invariably
terrible in the past few years, but
their membership has gone steadily
downgrade, and if I have ever gotten
into Mimes that organization would
have been much improved.
