ALMOST UPON US
ere is no season of the year that
ares with the last of the second
ster. Bright springtime, shining
--and at times pouring down-
serves to augment the spirit of
occasion, and it is celtainly true
at least as many major events
ie University occur in May and
as in the remainder of the year
sun until the speaker finishes his
speech and the diplomas are handed
But this editorial has been entirely
too long; and the real point is mere-
ly the fact that the really dramatic
and emotional part of the college year
is still to come. If ;December and
Januaxjy were dismal, February cold,
March uninteresting, and April damp,
then May and June, the springtime of
the college year both literally and
figuratively, are doomed to be the
greatest pair of months that have
happened around in a long, long time.
SCIENCE AND RESOURCES
University professors are not in a
position to finance expeditions out
of their own pockets, and must there-
fore rely on philanthropy and gener-
osity in order to make their contri-
butions to science on which are based
the progress of the world. But it
would seem that in some respects the
world's machinery is awry when the
special beneficiaries of these contri-
butions take so little interest in the
expeditions that heroic measures are
necessarty to put them in the field.
In a few days Professor Hobbs will
be leading his third expedition to
Greenland in the interests of a bet-
ter knowledge of what causes the
major meteorological disturbances
oversthe NorthkAtlantic. The toll of
fliers' lives taken by these storms
since Atlantic-hopping became popu-
lar last summer is miute testimony to
the need of better weather predictions,
and it leads us to believe that work
of the kind that Professor Hobbs is
doing is moe important to aviation
than all the spectacular flights of the
Thus when Comamnder Byrd can
raise half ja million dollars with com-
parative ease for an expedition whose
main object is a death-defying dash
to the pole, it strikes one as unjust
that Professor Hobbs should have to
conduct an arduous personal cam-
paign for twenty thousand dollars.
It is a trifle difficult to see who will
gain particularly by Byrd's hazard-
ous attempt, even should he survive
it, while the contrjbutions of Profes-
sor Hobbs to the safety of aviation
and to pure science are concrete and
tangible. The reputation of the Uni-
versity is also enhanced by the Green-
land expeditions conducted in its
name, which have caught the popular
fancy of this country and are well
known to scientists abroad. It is to
be hoped that the burden of financing
this valuable and important work can1
be shifted in the future to the should-
ers of those who have benefited and
will benefit from it.
Annonymous communications will be
disregarded. The names of communi-
cants will, however, be regarded as
confidential upon request. Letters pub-
lished should not be construed as ex.

THE TIME HAS come when we, Jeb,
must turn this column over to the
new editor. We promise that he will
be as funny as we have been and
twice as sarcastic.

HIS NAME, SAD as it is to relate,
is Three Star. Just why he has
this label we can't say, but it seems
that he detests gin and beer so that
is the only thing left to call him.
The implication is that he is all wet.
* * *
THREE STAR HAS promised to car-
ry on our campaign for president of
the Union. The plan is to write our
name on the ballot although the com-
mittee didn't print our name on the

THAT REMINDS US that we were
at the registration tables yesterday.
Every time we caught a student reg-
istering for the third time we asked
him if he thought he was in Chicago,
and each one of them felt ashamed.
* * *
BUT ALL THIS doesn't introduce
Three Star. He is a nice boy. For
the -girls we will say that he is fairly
good looking and; has a peculiar way.
FROM THIS POINT on lie will
make all the wise cracks. We may
come back now and then and say
something, but then again we may not.
AS THEY SAY in Australia-"Yo-
0-o" and here's "Hello," not to say
anything at all about "Here's looking
at ya," 'cause that absolutely won't be
tolerated about these sacred precincts.
* * *
SOMEHOW, THOUGH, didn't all of
you really feel just a) wee bit sorry
and teary, sort of, when you read
those parting words of the beloved
Jeb. He sang his swan song that,
started too soon.
NOW IF HE doesn't keep his prom-
ise to drop around, there's going to
be some flying fur. And there's no
doubt about the fact that you'll help
re-enlist his services at this Bakery
shoppe. As Harvey T. would rgffer
have it: "Help! Help!" Won't you?
Sure. And now that's that for a while,
listen to this.

FIRST THING of all is this-when
Three Star here started to walk over
to make his debut at the reserved'
typewriter, what do you think was
seen sitting right where it should not

"LE DOCTEUR MIRACLE"
A review, by Harold May
In a vain effort to convince the
Mimes theater was the Comedie Fran-
cais, Le Cercle Francais raised the
curtain on "Le Docteur Miracle" with
the three traditional back stage
knocks. The three knocks however,
were irrelevant for the play, if in any
tradition at all is in the tradition of
"The Spider" of recent notoriety. The
audience, in the second scene of the
second act, was drawn into the play,
and by a skillful planting of profes-
sors and of the less dignified stu-
dents a general chorus of bravos and
whoopees was started.
Imagine if you can, a short story
from one of the more eminent of the
popular magazines such as "Weird
Stories," or one of the lesser efforts
of the prophetic H. G. Wells worked
into a play and, with a few inpections
of poor musical comedy wise cracks,
presented as a serious dramatic effort
and you have Le Docteur Miracle. It
is almost out miming Mimes. The play
is built around the scientific labors
of Georges Duprat who has discov-
ered the means of prolonging life to
a period many times its present du-
ration. His discovery, however brings
many unforseen and uncomfortable
consequences from which he is saved
by that flimsiest of stage devices -
the whole turns out to be only a
drama after all. If it had not been
for the activities of the purely extran-
eous characters such as Mme. and M.
Gerbault - Moreuil, the piece would
not have had a leg to stand on.
Gertrude Crampton as Mme. Ger-
bault-Moreuil, in addition to speaking
very good French, gave the best per-
formance of the evening. She was con-
vincing as the querrelous and a bit
vulgar mamma, who has seen and
! knows life. Max Fruhauf, Jr., M. Ger-
bault-Moreuil, was a worthy mate for
Gertrude ' amon-he was a good na-
tured man who always kept his in-
fidelity to his wife at arm's length.
George W. Johnson, the butler Albert,
added a great deal to the performance
by his continual gaucheries. Samuel
Bonnell, George Duprat, although the
most- important male in the show, and
in spite of the fact that his French
was excellent, °did not do very much
to improve a part that was already

PHILLIP CULKIN RECITAL
A reTiew, by Marion L. Welles
After a timid rendition of his first
little love song, in which care of tech-
nique quite obscured the amorous in-
tent, Phillip Culkin, baritone pro-
ceeded to an increasingly strong pro-
gram at his graduation recital last
night in the School of Music audi-
The first group of Italian songs
were proof of an accomplished tech-
nique but one which had not yet be-
come entirely his own. The diction
and control were excellent however,
in these first numbers and throughout
In "Der Arme Peter" by Schumann,
he first came into his own. His pro-
nunciation was excellent, his tones
mellow, and an ease which comes with
familiarity accompanied this perform-
ance. Following this in "Chanson
Triste" by Dupalc, sustained tones, at
once powerful and gentle, dominated.
Mr. Culkin has shown remarkable
development during the past year and
last night's program stood out in start-
ling contrast to the one of a year ago.
Assisting Mr. Culkin, Miss Margaret
Stewart played a unique program of
piano numbers: Schumann, Eastwood
Lane, Moskowski and Otterstrom. The
most original interpretation was the
"Trabel On" from the American Ne-
gro Suite, while the best technique
appeared in "Air de Ballet."
Donna Esselstyn, who accompanied
Mr. Culkin contributed to the program
what a perfect prose style contributes
to an essay; she carried her part com4
petently without calling attention to

LET'S GO, '30
Traditions may, or may not mean
anything to us. Still, the world is run
on traditions. We are inclined to at-
tach a certain reverence to the things
that were -done by our fathers and
grandfathers before us. In a s.hool
or college such . as ours, there is a
certain bond of unity connecting the
students of one generation to the
students of other generations, which
is best expressed by the way the tra-
ditions are carried on--handed down
from year to year.
The pres ot sophomore class came
in resolved to make something of it-
self-for the greater glory cfI MiHh-
igan. And it has thus far succeeded
tolerably well, it won both sets of
class games as freshmen; it won the
fall games as sophomores. Today and
tomorrow are the spring games, th.w
last class contests in which it wll
be privileged to compete. I asked twr
of the men of '30 if they were coming
out. One answered, "Oh, I haven't
got time for such baby stuff."
The second had to study. I happen
to know that. last night and almost
