MAY 15, 1928.

Today will mark the final effort
on the part of the Student Chris-
tian association to raise funds for
the University of Michigan Fresh
Air camp for needy boys, which
is held annually at Paterson
lake. No brief is, necessary to es-
tablish the value of this enterprise
to the 400 under-privileged boys
who will receive a 12 day vacation
out of doors. The first of the
two tag days, held yesterday, net-
ted $1,883. The goal of the drive,
or the amount necessary to carry
out the full program planned, is
$3,000. Further comment should
be unnecessary.
Tonight will mark the opening re-
cital in Hill auditorium on the new
Frieze memorial organ, built by the
most famous builder of organs in the
The new instrument has been con-
structed at a cost of more than $75,-
000, and replaces the original Frieze
memorial organ which was obtained;
from the music hall of the World's
Fair in Chicago. The world's great
organists had been attracted by the
famous instrument of that day.
When the superb work of modern
man's handicraft formally assumes its
niche in the affairs of the University,
few will realize the great forest of
metal wind-trunking, first from the
blower room to the organ chamber,
and then to the various divisions in
the chamber, which is included in the
organ. Few may appreciate the ex-
istence of 8.000 pipes in the instru-
ment, the many tone colors, includ-
ing diapason, string, wood-wind, and
brass, requiring pipe-work of wood.
and three or four kinds of metal in
varying proportion and weight to ac-
complish the desired results. Further-
more, there may not be many who willE
recognize the great range afforded by
the new organ by means of reed
pipes to give the delicate and beau-
tiful Vox Humana, the clarinet, the
oboe, the English horn, the French
horn, the trumpet, the trombone, and
the tuba effects, to the very fortissimo
Contra Bombarde. But certainly none
of those who will attend the event
tonight can fail to comprehend the
value such a recognition of the true
worth of good music can have among
the members, present and future, of
the faculty and student body of this

to see the need recognized and the
advancement made by University offic-
Ranking foremost among the tradi-
tions revered by Michigan women is
Lantern Night. Coming as it does as
a present day reminder of May day
functions which have taken place
every year since the founding of the
University, it remains as the one
significant custom of the graduating
ceremonies which includes all Mich-
igan women.
That it does strive to preserve this
tradition has almost been lost sight
of during recent years. Always the
ceremony has attracted large aud-
iences which come to see the truly
picturesque scene of the senior women
wearing caps and gowns winding
down the hill carrying their lighted
lanterns. Too often in the past the
women of the lower classes have been
content to come and watch. This
year, however, they are being urged
not merely to attend but to join in
the line of march which follows the
seniors and is in a historic way a
homage paid them by the underclass-
es on graduation.
From the returns of the recent pres-
idential primary it is quite apparent
that Indiana still prefers government
of the people, for the people, and
buy the people.
It is to be hoped that the local as-
sociation of landladies will duplicate
shortly the contribution of the Detroit
alumni who have given $25,000 for
the purchasing of land for dormitories.
Little Joe 'Horner, former Michigan
athlete, defeated President Clarence
Cook Little in a shot-putting contest
at the alumni triennial on Saturday.
That is the first time that Michigan
has ever beaten a Harvard athletic
representative, and that came only
after the President's two year con-
nection with the University.
The dedication of the new Frieze
memorial organ in Hill auditorium has
attracted at least as much attention
as the exploits of the B. basketball
Annonymous communications will be

To the editor:
The Honor System and its relation
to the student body has long been
the target of adverse criticism. There
is much to say both for and against
the present system used in the Engi-
neering college; few of us feel com-
petent to pass final judgment but the
Student Committee realizes that some
response is warranted to the violent
pessimistic 'outburst 'that appeared in
a recent campus opinion.
To quote the author, "It is common
knowledge that -the Honor System in
the Engineering school is unsuccess-
ful and any engineer will tell of the
amount' of c"ribbing that goes on dur-
ing exmingtions an of how books
and references are planted to be of
assistanice tb the' stud'ent."' Wholesale
cribbing of,this, type is ,a complete
surprise to us, and moreover we are
prepared at any" time to disprove it
to any of the numerous doubters. This
is not Freshman idealism, vague be-
lief, or silly'optifnism* we'know froi
observation ,and experience tha.t it }is

useless to draw comparisons. We do
not claim to be posse'ssors of a curb-
.all or a panacea for dishonesty and
deceit, neither do we believe it is
possible to change such natures in
the brief period of four years or less.
Perhaps it is possible that the pre-
sent system. is an invitation for some
massive intellect to successfully cheat
entirely unsupervised, 'it may further
inspire him with the foresight and
cunning necessary to plant a book in
such a position that he can make
numerous excursions to it, and with
no mean ability copy the examination
word for word. For the Engineering
Honor System is not to prevent dis-
honor, its chief objective is to assunie
that a student is intrinsically honest,
that he will appreciate being trusted
and will be worthy of the trust. It is
possible for him to cheat often without
being detected but should he be found
violating the trust his punishment
will be sure and swift. What is worse
than punishment, he loses our respect
and has more of our sympathy.
The University College has been a
means of bringing this subject to a
head. Whether the Honor System
would succeed in it is a matter of
much discussion. The Student Coun-#
cil, Phi Eta Sigma and other corn-

A review by Robert Wetzel
Last week there slipped into Detroit
a modest divertisement, unheralded by
the brave music of publicity; it found
a quiet haven in the Cass, tarried
seven days, and, folding its scenery
like the tents of Mr. Longfellow's
Arabs, as silently slipped away. Yet
somehow, despite a cautious press-
agent, the information leaked out that
"A Man's Man" revived several years
after its appearance on Broadway,
was in the city across from Windsor;
and so the civilized minority formed
themselves into a hollow square and
attended it. They saw the best Amer-
ican comedy to cross Detroit's pros-
ceniums this season.
A vivid lithograph of homesteaders
in Harlem, "A Man's Man" speaks tell-
ingly of that bourne so recently in-
vestigated by Miss Delmar's "Bad
Girl." Edie and Mel Tuttle live in a
flat next to the elevated; they eke out
their little lives beneath the rumble
of the passing trains.
Charlie Groff is a shipping
clerk in a cinema corporation, their
friend, a loquacious show-off with a'
tongue of silver, if not silver-plate.
He can, he declares, get Mel in the
Elks along with the regular fellas-
for a consideration; and he will put
Edie in one of that guy De Mille's pic-
tures in exchange for an eminently
suitable reward.
So, unknown to each other, Mel
