ODE ON INTIMATIONS
OF THE
IXWORTALITY
OF THE
CIGGY BUTT
To G. F.
All hail, thou smouldering ciggy
butt,
Be thou Lucky, Chesterfield, or wha
Old Gold, thou treaare of them all-
But why shouldst litter Angell Hall
All hail, thou half-extinguished wee
That comforted man in his hourly
need,
Thou blessed respite in life's wild
trammel-
But what smells worse than a dyin
Camel.
Oh banished butt, but not yet gone,
Not relegated yet to the campus lawn
No printed warnings tacked on th
wall
Have taken thee yet from Angell Hall
So elevate still thy stagnant stenchco
Thou mashed butts 'neath mouldy
benches-
No signs can remove the tobacco
yearning
From President Angell's Hall of
Learning.
Come, students, from your deadly
classes,
Light cigarettes inside the door,
And departing leave behind you
Mashed butts upon the floor.
Score ye not the bold professor
He who tells you not to smoke.
Must not his sense of humor have
Its semi-annual joke?
Flick your ashes on the steps-
Preserve those steps of stone!
Ay, maybe then th' insidious moth
Will leave those steps alone.
Scratch matches on those noble pillars
That hark back to the Greeks,
For all the sooner will they look
Like genuine antiques.
And sing, 0 muse, of the janitors'
wrath-
How they loom through the bluish
haze,
Plying their brooms among the butts,
Sweeping them up with angry gaze,
Sing of the sweat upon their brows
As they toil in the summer heat,
Cursing while they do their best
To keep our building neat.
Praise the speed of these worthy
men
As across the floor they go,
Like flivvers taking hills on high
When the gas is getting low.
Smoke on, you men of Michigan,
The lighted butt still flout:
The Regents have not acted yet
To rule your smoking out.
Enjoy the privilege while you may,

Old time flies like an eagle,
And the self-same butt you smoke to-
day
Tomorrow may be illegal.
Closed the boulevard, gone the autos;
And three to one we'll bet,
Men'll soon be bounced from Michigan
For smoking a cigarette.

THE MAY FESTIVAL
A review by Vincent Wall
The doldrums of these calm spring
evenings were ruffled last night by the
pageantry of the first of the May Fes-
tival Concerts. The new organ came
to exhibition, along with a richly voic-
ed diva, a famous orchestra, a well-
known guest conductor and other in-
gredients sufficient to please hoity-
toity social Ann Arbor, inspired stu-
dents from the School of Music, and
the hoi polloi that is the rest of us.
Wagner's "Flying Dutchman" was
given an excellent reading by the
orchestra and Frederick Stock. Both
were in a virtuoso mood, and Herr

Stock conducted in his usual manner,
with clearness and taste and with a
definite direction that makes his work
both inviting and stimulating.
In her first two arias-"Voce di
Donna" and "Ah, Mon Fils"- there
was proof of Matzenauer's grand sense
of style and dramatic temperament;!
her voice has not grown hoarse with
the wear of the years; it has still
that mellow warmth that charms the
var and the intelligence. More than
that, she is able to be intense, and at
the same time restrain her perform-
ance within the limits of the concert
stage. Her German group later was
a well-chosen series of ballads, with-
out descending to the sap songs and
sentiment that so many prima don-
nas seem to think necessary.
Mr. DeLamarter's organ concerto
that followed (under the baton of the
composer) is rich, of extraordinary
depth, and blends beautifully with the
orchestra; moreover, the performance
of Palmer Christian was what might
be called inspired. His playing has
something in it that even the most
adept and agile-fingered of the mod-
erns, or the most sincere and metic-
ulous of the classicists have failed
to grasp. He has simplicity '(which is
the attribute of a great artist) coupl-
ed with a superb command of that in-
tricate complex of stops and key-
boards, and finally some sentiment.
His second group included a Scherzo,
"Hymn of Pan" by Moore, and Mi-
let's Toccata, "Thou Art the Rock"
that were immense. In a program by
ther:selves they would have been a
sensation, and last night they were
given an ovation of sorts.
Matzenauer's last aria was "Gerech-
ter Gott" from the Wagnerian circus
-I mean the "Rienzi." I have never
forgiven Wagner for doing here ex-
actly what he accused Meyerbeer of
doing-of making his operas a show
and spectacle. But it was a splendid
vehicle for Madame's talent, and
though long and difficult, she possess-
ed the power to hold her audience and
at the samne time work her will upon
the appointed music.
In short, it was a very interesting
concert, and all very good music. If
the rest can aproximate the mark
which it has set, the whole may very
well be considered a neat but not
gaudy! plume in the bonnet of the
University Musical Society.

for every educational institution
should have a certain number of pic-
turesque traditions, if for. no other
reason than the building of associa-
tions in the minds of men and women
who graduate from its halls.
Red paint played and will play a
large part in these ceremonies. Such
a large part it plays, in fact, that
nearly all of the impressiveness of
the public ceremony would be lost to
at least two of the organizations with-
out its employ. Red paint lends at-
wosphere, color, and distinction to the
cnterprises of the societies represen-
ted.

has its portion of "flunks" just as
those colleges who have the conven-
tional eagle-eyed monitors fluttering
up one aisle and down the next in
a frenzy of anticipation and in a
surge of over-estimated self-import-
ance. Clearly, then, the furtive plant-
ing of books in secret archives of the
Engineering buildings is not quite as
productive of results at examination
time as might be believed.
The Freshmen of Phi Eta Sigma
have an idea. They would start withl
the incoming Freshman class and keep
the good work going forever after.
And since this scheme has its pos-
sibilities, it is not entirely within the
province of the Class of 1930, the
Class of 1929, or the Class of 1928 to
say that it is "impossible." Further-'
more we wouldn't even be concerned
over the question "To Cheat or Not
I to Cheat" if this plan were adopted.
The idea is good. Even the most ver-
dant incoming Freshman can often
overcome a wayward tendency, as
