into the governmental system,
President Hoover has announced
his hope for the re-organization of
the administrative departments of
the government to include a de-
partment of education, health, and
public welfare, headed by a mem-
ber of the cabinet. Moreover, ay
rumor that Secretary of the Inte-
rior Ray Lyman Wilbur, who is well I
known as an educator and a medi-
cal authority, will head the new
department has gained weight in
Washington circles.
The idea is, of course, an old'
one. For more than 40 years, the
National Education association has
fostered the plan. Persons promi-
nent in public affairs have lauded'
the idea and commended the sup-
porters of the proposition time and
time again. The last Congress was
faced by a bill providing for the
re-organization. However, it has
remained for President Hoover .to
definitely assert his earnest con-
tention in favor of the new de-
There can be little question of
the necessity for the move. Thel
administrative branch as it is or-
ganized under the existing regu-'

a hopeless hodgepodge of offices,
commissions, committees, bureaus
with overlapping and conflicting
duties and responsibilities and with
antiquated machinery for opera-
tion. The treasury department will'

Annual May Festival

Once more, as the gentle odors
of Spring come wafting over the
campus, we are about to be treat-
ed to a sight extraordinaire. Some-
thing which has never before been
witnessed, a great masterpiece, a
satire on women and war, is about,
to burst from its chrysalis. Under
the influence of the balmy weather
and soft thoughts, it will burst into
a dazzling creation that will stun
all beholders with its magnificence
and delicate rarity.
Now that men's thoughts turn,
they will behold with awe-struck
eyes a stupenduous creation which
even its maker declares in a hush-
ed voice is so marvelous that none
have seen the like before. Across

An Appreciation, By Robert
Reynolds Evans has a voice that
is among one of six on the Ameri-
can stage. It is more beautiful
than Walter Hampden's-for it has
no nasal twang.
That is what Brooks Atkinson or
Wollcott or Vivian said-not I.
In a career that started back in
the days of "The 13th Chair" and
Margaret Wycherly, R e y n o 1 d s
Evans has played with the Barry-
mores, Jane Cowl, Cyril Maude,
John Drew, the Rockford Players.
For the last five seasons he has
been with Walter Hampden, and
just recently closed in "The Grey
Fox", the play of Machiavelli which
starred Chrystal Herne and Henry
Reynolds Evans is not good look-
ing as Dobbs hats go, but he has!
that charm and polish of manner
that give him an appeal so fara
above a handsome profile. He is
like George Arliss in his peculiar
magnetism. It is in Arliss parts,
that he is especially brilliant-the
Rajah of Rhook in "The Green.
Goddess", Shylock in "The Mer-
chant." In comedy of manners,
too, he is instinct with the wit that
carries such farce. His Grenham
in "Aren't We All?" is better than
Charles Warbuton's - which is
much of a compliment.
Ladies love to have Reynolds
Evans in their drawing room. Wo-
men like him better than men. In
a stock company, with his deep}
soothing voice, stroking like velvet,
he is a matinee idol. In New York
he is always in engagements. Rey-
nolds Evans is the biggest name in
"The Vikings."
In "The Vikings" he plays Old
Ornulf. Hidden behind the slate
grey beard of the part, he is the
tragic, the heroic superman-in an;
age of heroes and supermen. As
Ornulf, rising to his great climax in
the thrilling chant of the last act,
he makes his role rise equal to Miss
Kelly's part of Hjordis. Among
the men, he will take the show.

Several members of the board of
directors of the University of Mich-
igan club of Detroit acted as hosts
on Monday night of this week to a
small group of students and facul-
ty men at a dinner in the Univer-
sity club. But the occasion was
more than that of a dinner. It
marked the end of the first organ-
ized attempt on the part of the
Detroit alumni group to cooperate
in solving campus problems. The
phrase "campus problems" is one
that has grown hoary and tenuous'
with long usage, but its applica-
tion here is in the strictest sense.
As a result of the Detroit dinner,
another contact committee will
find its way to Ann Arbor next
year, and for as many years as it
remains practicable. It is seldom
that any such body can point to any
solid achievements in the first
year of its existence. In fact if it
can point to anything lasting in
any of the years it is doing more
than well. But this one can.
The campus as it is made up at
present will never appreciate the
recently-announced change .in the
organization of the Varsity band
until that band, now an R. 0. T. C.
organization, marches out on the
gridiron next fall. It is to be hoped
then that some credit will fall to
the small alumni group which went
to considerable pains and expense
in bringing about the change.
It is an inspiring spectacle for
an undergraduate to observe-this
intense and still youthful interest
of alumni in A campus which most
of them frequented many years
ago. This interest is not of the
prying kind. It is not of the criti-
cal eye and the free tongue, but
more of the outstretched hand.
But the inspiration is more than
overbalanced at present by the
tragedy of the hundreds of stu-
dents who leave the campus behind
them without becoming alumni in
the real sense of the word. The
coming years will mark more and
more a concerted effort on the part
of the alumni association to dent
the consciousness of the senior
classes in regard to the alumni uni-
versity.. This is to be welcomed,
but at the same time the effort
extended should not have to be so
great, for it is no idle boast that
to be a Michigan alumnus in this
day is a privilege and not a mere

lose the public health service, a
function obviously separated from
the purposes and duties of that de-
partment. The department of the
interior will lose the bureau of edu-
cation which has for a long time
been growing in importance to an
extent preventing a feasible hand-
ling by that department while
t other problems occupied its atten-
tion. Added to these functions,
there will be the important serv-
ices handled at the present by
numerous welfare bureaus.
r From all points of view, the sug-
gestion seems to be a good one..
With an able man at the head of
an eleventh department of admin-
istration, efficiency in the hand-
ling of problems of education,
health, and welfare would be in-1
creased in efficiency. It is to be
seen, however, whether this is just
a false alarm, a gesture for the
moment, or whether we can de-
pend on President Hoover to take
the idea, a good one, and carry it
through to a finish.
Behind the footlights for the
first time since the desperate pro-
ductions at the end of last semes-
ter, Play Production last night
opened a five-day run for four of
the six plays given at that time.
However at this time the plays are
given under the direcion of Val-;
entine Windt, head of the play
production department, and have
new casts and some new lines. Be-
fore, the plays were entirely student
affairs in direction, authorship,'
acting, and so on.
It is to be expected that the per-
formances this week will show a
great improvement over the others,
and that the public will find
enough new so that it will go to
the University hall theater. The
criticism which was directed at
these plays last semester was most-
ly justified, even when considered
in the light of the entire student
participation. This time, better
things may be expected of these
four plays which are the first stu-.
dent plays to be produced on the
campus in recent years. Play
Production has done well in spon-
soring these productions, and there4
is little doubt but that the campus

Civil war in Mexico has passed
from the place of an interesting
battle between Mexicans for the
control of the government to the
place where American lives and
American property are in danger,
much more in danger than they
ever were in Nicaragua. When an
American general, acting for the
United States, is forced to cross the
Rio Grande and instruct warring
Mexicans that the Unied States
cannot tolerate any action which
jepordizes the lives of American
citizens, a situation is created
which is dangerous to say the least.
Wisely enough, the first move of
the Washington government has
been to take steps to assist the
Mexican nationalists through the
sale of arms and munitions. At
the same time steps have been
taken to prevent the possible'
transportation of arms to the reb-
els by the use of airplanes. Senti-
ment in the United States is by no
means hostile to Mexico, and no
thought of an unfriendly nature is
