to organize the "inner" college plan
along Oxford-Cambridge lines, as
"innovators licensed to peddle their
synthetic culture to the univer-
sities, colleges, and preparatory
schools throughout the country."
Almost alone, Glenn Frank has
the situation in hand. Nobody can
Imake a noise like Santa Claus
I around Madison and get his finger
into university pie. There is com-
mendable courage in taking such
a firm stand toward all proffered
gifts that merits the imitation of
I executives and regents the country
over. Michigan must make such a
stand before she is qualified to offer,
the presidency to a really compe-
tent man.
From Yale comes a warning that
the country's universities are fac-
ing a progressive deterioration in
the quality of their teaching-a
warning that might be para-
phrased in the familiar words oft
uttered by kindly and gray-beard-
ed educators, "Brick and mortar
do not make a school." The Yale
report decries the prevalent ten-
dency to expand that is placing a
higher premium on new buildings
and bigger enrollments than on
new talent and bigger brains.
There is in this tendency much
of the vanity that made Athenians
laugh at homely Socrates. It is
reflected in an attitude, of which
Princeton is among -the guiltiest
that a successful president is one
who can wheedle the biggest total
of building funds out of alumni
and other sentimentalists. It is the
essence of the recent student out-
burst at Harvard, "Val.e Veritas!
Ave Vanitas!" (Farewell truth,
Hail Vanity) occasioned by the ac-
ceptance of building gifts of more
than sixteen million dollars.
At Michigan; expansion has been
the keynote of the last two ad-
ministrations-especially that of
President Little, who went out of
his way to find new fields in which
to expand, discarding meanwhile
President Burton's promising
schedule for increasing salaries.
The School of Forestry, additions
to the School of Education and
the Medical school, the University
College, the Alumni University, and
most recently the School of Music-
all worthy projects, but expensive-~
have eaten up available funds that
might have been devoted to mak-
ing faculty positions more attrac-
tive, and retaining men like Pro-

For the benefit of those who have
never read this column before it
might be well to explain that this
is the official humor column of
the paper (Michigan Daily). GetE
that-humor column. This is
stressed because Lark, the official
editor, will not start being offici-I
ous until tomorrow, due to the fact
that the first column after two
weeks of finals and other frivolities
is rough sledding, tough going, hard
pulling, and wet; and he therefore
pats us on the back, murmurs
some encouraging stimuli, and lets
nature take its course. So we're
writing the column, knowing full;



that our reputation-if any-I
suffer, and his won't. Crafty!
Lark is.

The appearance of the world
famed Rachmaninoff in recital in
Ann Arbor is a high spot in an ex-
traordinary anniversary program
of the Choral Union Series. Bring-
ing with him a sound reputation
as an artist of international stand-
ing and with it the recent tumult-
ous applause of Detroit audiences,
Rachmaninoff snould provide an
already friendly Ann Arbor audi-
ence with completely satisfying ad-
venture in' piano music.
His program includes Mozart,
Scarlatti, Schumann and Chopin,
which his virtuosity in interpreting
the personality of the composer
should make a valuable musical I
experience, and closes with his own t
"Moment Musicale" and the ever'
favorite arrangement, with Kreis-
ler, of "Liebesfreud."
The Mozart Sonata, No. 14, which
opens the program is a long num-
ber and the promptness with which
the Auditorium doors are closed
suggests the advisability, not to say;
the courtesy, of punctual arrival.

One thing that Ann Arbor has
come to look forward to as an
annual event in spite of the hap-,
hazard element of bookings is al
puppet show. Last year it was
Jean Gros' French Marionettest
and Helen Joseph's Puppets. Tlis
year a group operating from Yale
and calling themselves The Pup-
peteers will give two performances
Tuesday of next, week. Sponsors
of this are the Harris Players
through their director, Prof. J.
Raleigh Nelson.

The tobacco samples you sent me
have been received, and they are great.
If you can picture in your mind the
lonesomeness of a traveling man in a
small town on a rainy night, not a
friend in a hundred miles, nothing to
do and no place to go:
That was the position I was in when
your samples of Edgeworth came. It
was like a voice from above when I
opened the package and got the old
pipe steaming.
I have smoked various brands of
tobacco for the past fifteen years, but
never in my life have I found a to-
bacco at any price that will equal
Edgeworth. It does' not bite the
tongue, and a beautiful aroma follows.
With the good old friend pipe and a
can of Edgeworth you can dream of
the rainbow's end.
Please count me in the future as an
Edgeworth booster.
Very truly,
(Signed) Al Stanley

But whatever credit Yale may
feel entitled to for the success of
the troupe of Pippeteers, Michigan
is entitled to the major and final
credit, for Harry Burnett, '23, and,
Forman Brown, '22, are Michigan
graduates who in their undergrad-
uate days (and with the famous
Robert Henderson in his pre-Rock-
ford days) discovered their talent
for puppet shows. While in Ann
Arbor these three organized a ma-
rionette company with which they
spent their week-ends and vaca-
tions touring Michigan. For two
seasons they achieved considerable
success and Burnett's interest was
such that Prof. Nelson urged him
to study under Prof. George Pierce
Baker at Yale with the idea of
rounding out his theatrical experi-
ence by experiment in other fields
of dramatic production. The in-
evitable ironic situation arose when
Prof. Baker discovered the pup-
peteering talent and insisted on de-
veloping it. Burnett was successful
in obtaining a scholarship for for-
eign study.
The outcome of this is a unique
museum of puppet materials which
he was able to assemble in the
course of his puppet-exploration
tour of Italy. The piece de resist-
ance is a complete set of twelve
Goldoni puppets which were lo-
cated in Florence and purchased
finally after considerable negotia-
tion. The little figures were used
to interpret the Goldoni plays, one
of which, "The Mistress of the Inn,"
was produced recently by Harris
Players, and are now on exhibition
at the Yale/Theatre. The original
costumes, exquisite and excellently
preserved, clothe them.
Subsequently Burnett and Brown
united to give further performances
and the object of their present
tour, which has included the East,
Florida and the Carolinas, and will
extend to the Pacific coast, is to
gather funds to establish a perma-
nent theatre for their art.
