The testimony of Prof. Edson R
Sunderland of the Law School befor
the House Judiciary committee con-

body is an instance of recognition o
the University and its Law Schoo]
which deserves notice. The fact that
Professor Sunderland originally draft-
ed the bill about which he testified
makes the incident even more compli-
mentary to him and to the University.
The bill itself, providing for the
registration of court judgments of
each state of the Union in all other
states appears to be one of those
worthy but belated measures which
might very well have been enacted
in the early history of the Republic.
The Constitution provides that such
laws shall have "faith and credit" in
all states of the Union, but until the
present time Congress has never pro-
vided for the enforcement of this pro-
The new bill, an act of registration,
will render judgments throughout the
United States, in order that a lawsuit
will not be necessary to secure this
"faith and credit." The act has the
endorsement of the American Bar as-
sociation and apparently lacks only
the endorsement of Congress to make
it a reality.
The very obvious value of this new
piece of legislation, coupled with the
large part which Professor Sunder-
land has played in its preparation
and consideration, is a singular com-
pliment to the eminent position of the
Law School and the Law faculty here.
Michigan can be duly proud of the
past record of achievement and the
present reputation of this branch of
her state University.
THE OIL WAR
Starting last summer when the
Royal Dutch Shell company of Europe
accused the Standard Oil compay of
stealing oil from soviet Russia, the
battle between the two great commer-
cial organizations for supremay in the
East has steadily grown more bitter
until an open conflict seems imminent
and inevitable at the present time.
Only one branch of the great Stand-
ard Oil company-the Standard Oil
company of New York, has thus far
been drawn into the heat of the con-
flict, and what the final alignment
will be, or what the final outcome will
be, are as yet extremely dubious.
There are only two courses open to
the competitors, however, and neither
of them promise very bright outlooks
to the general public. The first pos-
sibility is an amicable settlement,
with a price and trade area agree-
ment, and the second possibility, the
most likely, it seems, is a bitter price
war between the two throughout the
Far East, with the local consumers
shouldering the burden.
The outcome in either case will be
extremely interesting, for though
great commercial struggles between
competitors in the same nation are
common enough, it is rare when such
battles assume the aspect of inter-
national conflict. All in all it seems
inevitable that both companies will
survive the war in the end, even
though they may be poorer and wiser,
for the field of international com-
merce is a tremendous field, and such
a thing as an international monopoly
is almost inconceivable.

$200,000 AND THE FUTURE
During the year just closed, accord-
ing to the report of the Athletic asso-
ciation, the various athletic teams of
the University earned 'a profit of $200,-
000 over all expenses. The vastness
of the sum is inspiring in its poten-
tialities, but it is more than inspiring
-it is a challenge to the men who
have it in their hands and to the
policy of the University from which it
In a few years, at this rate, the
new stadium will be completely paid
for; and before the present freshman
class has left college the new intra-
mural building will probably not be
the subject of debt. The Women's
field house and other programs of ex-
pansion are arranged in the financing
plan, and the end of the process of
material equipment is in sight in the
not far distant future.
Even allowing for a shrinkage in
the gross income, some decision will
have to be made for the disposal of
these vast surpluses within a very
few years. To reduce the admission
charges to athletic contests would be
rather out of place with the stadium
sold out at present prices. It follows,
therefore, that this disposal of sur-
plus funds will have to take the form1
of expenditure on or subsidy for some
worthy University project.
To suggest that this surplus be
spent upon purely educational phases
of the University will doubtless cause
spasms of rage among athletic direc-
tors 'throughout the country. The
fact remains, however, that the ath-
letic authorities are possessed of this
surplus which they will be unable to
use in any extremely effective man-
ner. The further fact which comes

Mr. McIntyre is presenting Zieg-
feld's "Kid Boots" which starred Ed-
die Cantor and Mary Eaton some
three years ago for a one night stand
at the Whitney tomorrow night. This
marks the renaissance at the Whit-
ney, for beginning tomorrow night, it
won't be dark for some moons. Be-
sides the opera, and the Rockford
Players, Walker Whitesides has been
announced for one performance of
"The Hindu" on Friday, Jan. 27.
Since Mary Eaton is now playing
"The Five O'clock Girl" in New York
and Eddie Cantor is on the road with
the "Follies," they probably won't be
seen with this company. however, it's
the only eye and ear entertainment
until the Junior Girls' play so you
might as well go.

"THE VANGUARD," by Arnold
Bennett. Doran and Voinpany, Neiy
A review, Ben S. Washer, Jr.
This is a neiv Arnold Bennett! FO,
in "the Vanguard" he has turned out
a pleasing novel, one that need not be
taken too seriously, in which he has
an easy reading, lightly flowing style.
In spots there is a grace and charm
to the handling of an unusual mo-
ment, and again there are passages
which remind the reader of many
concoctions of inconsequential drivel
that he has read many times.
Unfortunately Mr. Bennett has cre-
a,±ed a plot in which there are too
nmiany relevant details. The mind of
the reader is so intent on remember-
ing the intricacies of the situation
that the character study, which I
think the author was attempting, is
lost in the debris. There are so many
barriers to jump that one cannot gel
to the personality of the characters-
and this is disconcerting to say the
I imagine Mr. Bennett had great
fuit writing this book--it seems so.
