"PRESIDENT McNUTT"
EXIT!
Whether Governor Green was
serious in booming Legion Com-
mander McNutt for president of
Michigan, or whether he was
merely handing out a bouquet in
accordance with the etiquette of
the occasion, his remark was as bald
a revelation as one could ask of
the governor's attitude toward the
University. There seems to be little
doubt that he would like to reduce
this institution to a source of poli-
tical patronage. He has already
done fairly well at Michigan State
where moving vans have worn deep
ruts in front of the presidential
residence, and those of the faculty
who have stuck it out have worn
their dress suits threadbare going
to hello and goodbye receptions.
Dean Paul V. McNutt of the In-
diana Law school, it should here be
mentioned, is national commander
of the American Legion. The legion
is a vital cog in the Republican
machine of Michigan, and Gover-
nor Green is sensible of his debt
to the machine. Ergo, he goes to
a legion meeting, pats the national
commander on the back, and says
he would tender him a nice job "if
he had the power to appoint." For-
tunately the power of appointment
that politicianGreen would like to
have is being jealously guarded by
the Regents, who are hardly in a
mood to turn it over to the gov-
ernor.
Another political scheme that is
germinating u n d e r Governor
Green's hat it at least partially
responsible for the Regents' un-
willingness to cooperate with him.
He would like to vest control of
all state-supported educational in-
stitutions in a single board of Re-
gents, preferably appointed py him-
self and at least subject to his ap'
proval. Then he could pass out
Isalaried sinecures to the Salvation
Army, the Knights of Columbus'
and the Anti-Saloon League as well
as the American Legion.
Haply our present Regents have no
forks in Michigan's political stew
and they are armed with a toxin
l anti-toxin against political threats
i the popular confidence their
sober and dignified conduct has
engendered. The University stands
in no immediate danger of becom-
ing a political football to be booted
hither and yon in the name of
patronage. Exit McNutt: Boy,
bring on the next victim!
ATHLETICS TODAY
(The Christian Science Monitor)
When Prof. Fielding H. Yost
states that "nations have succeeded
in democratic government in al-
most the exact proportion to their
participation in competitive games
and athletics," he is undoubtedly
making broad claims for athletics.
It is well to remember, however,
that for the last twenty-eight years
he has been in a position not only
to help bring such a condition
about, but also to pass expert judg-
ment on the situation. For more
than a quarter of a century Pro-

fessor Yost has played a highly im-
portant part in the field of intercol-
legiate athletics, first as coach of
the University of Michigan foot-
ball squads and later as the univer-
sity's director of athletics. In' that
time he has been a big factor in el-
evating the character of college
sports, and that his work has been
appreciated is shown by the lunch-
eon recently tendered him by the
Sportsmanship Brotherhood at
which he made the above quoted
statement.
Twenty-eight years ago college
athletics were conducted in such a
way as to merit criticism. "Build
a team to win," was too apt to be
the slogan of the coaches and the
players and, while there may still
be some isolated cases where this
same condition prevails today, the
vast majority are making clean,
honest playing, win or lose, their
ideal. The building of character,
the development of imagination
and quick thinking along with en-
tertainment and exercise are the
cardinal virtues of college athletic
competition as practiced today in
the higher institutions of learning,
and these are all fundamental to
the existence of a successful
democracy.
The United States colleges are

GARGOYLE-
A QUESTION OF TASTE
In the matter of mud-slinging itI
might be called to the attention ofI
the campus after the publication
of this that The Daily has as little
right to do it as any other organ,
but'it at least has as much right.
The present issue of the Gargoyle,
self-styled humor magazine is one
in point. Why the Gargoyle should,
undertake to "razz" the annual
J-Hop in an article written many
days before that relic of former
days has been held, why the Garg-
oyle should undertake to razz stu-
dent-acted and student-written
plays in a column that might bet-
ter be devoted to promoting any'
campus attempts at bettering the
study and practice of drama at
Michigan-in what it calls a
"Whimsically serious' mood, and
finally, why the Gargoyle should
take it upon itself to cast great
scoops of dark matter at the In-
lander and 'The Daily as de-
teriorating publications is a little
too much for this press to under-
stand. One of the cases in point
mentioned in the article was that
The Daily was scooped by the
Washtenaw Tribune in the matter
of Dr. Little's resignation. If onlyr
the slightly adolescent writer had
taken the pains to uncover his
facts, he might have discovered
that the facts related in the Trib-
une were known to all legitimate
newspaper men in the, vicinity of
Ann Arbor-and much better
known-many days before the so-.
called "extra" was issued, and that
the Tribune was making _a long
guess at the actuality in following
out its adopted policy of harrying
the University at every turn for the
benefit of the native sons.
Finally, The Daily takes the lib-
erty of suggesting to the editor of
the Gargoyle, that even if the
afore-mentioned assaults were
justified, it is not the best taste'
to have them written up by one
who has been disqualified in the
race for awards and takes this
means of venting a little petty
spite. If-the galosh fits, try it on.1
A CORRECTION
In these columns recently it wast
stated that any freshman who had

t his-latest flier, the season is open
for quips.. In the Chicago Tribune
this morning is the eight column
headline announcing that "Lind-
bergh Will Marry Anne Morrow-
Girl In Ten Million Is Home
Loving."
What a whale of a difference
a hyphen will make.
** *
The Gargoyle appears this morn-
ing with what they term "some
sensational disclosures." With the
type of humor they have been in-
festing the campus with this year,
they almost have to turn it into a
scandal sheet in order to sell any
of the things.
The. Gargoyle is the type of
periodical you could expect to come
out backing Governor Green's
favoring of McNutt for the presi-
dency.
The Building and Grounds de-
partment has offered a cork-lined
ice box of some ponderous dimen-
Ssions for sale. Now if they had of-
fered an ice box of that size during
the J-Hop week-end, they might
have had a chance for a sale.
Maybe if the songs would im-
prove, the whispering baritones
wouldn't have to whisper them.

typewriter has just died. All
the chewing gum concerns
should combine in raising a
monument to his memory.

They have discovered the largest
piece of ivory in the world in
Alaska, and they are shipping it
to America without even nominat-
ing it for President.
* * *
At this point we have decided that
enough has not been said concern-
ing Bramwell Booth for President.
A strong point in his favor is the
fact that he'd be able to bring a
lot of his iron pots and mangy
Santa Clauses into town, where
they are sorely needed.
*s
What we mean is that every-.
thing is going to pot here and
there aren't enough to gof
- around.

And the Santa Clauses?

Well, if you're an average
student, in the average stu-
dent's financial condition, a few
Santa Clauses would-that's it;
you get the idea.
Lindbergh again. The Daily's
description tells us that Anne Mor-
row is "the quite type of girl."
That's the way we feel about
it, too.. She should be a quite
type. Wouldn't it be fierce ifI

naivete would be compensated by
a finer sympathy for what could
not evoke whole-hearted response-
and he might also have chosen I
music which could; or was the
pianist "presenting a program with
a particular appeal for the audience
in the city in which he was play-
ing"? not that the program was a
bad onei n itself; rather that it was
bad in the pianist's reaction to it.
Would it not have been wiser for
him to have played one of the Bee-
, thoven "Hammerklavier" Sonatas,
for example, forgetting the city in
which he was playing and becom-
ing more mindful of himself?
Mr. Rachmaninoff has great
technica facility. He is able to take
I complicated passages with aston-
ishing lack of effort. This results I
in extremely lucid presentation of
musical outline: there is no need-
less exaggeration of casual parts;
the feeling for proportion is always
dominant. This sense of propor-
tion at times led to rather unjus-
tifiable contrasts, as in the succes-!
sive moods of movement and re-
pose in the Chopin G minor Ballade
where the slow parts were almost
all too slow and the fast ones al-
together too fast. In that particular
performance too much of the detail
was sacrificed t. speed. In his
sensitiveness to musical outline this
pianist often tended to satisfy him-
self with mere indication of his in-
tention, calling attention to pas-
sages with ferocious accents and -
then letting them take care of
themselves. 'This is partly due to
a not altogether flexible control oft
the instrument. In this respect
the pianist seems to have improved
recently: there was much greater
fluency, or what pianists are wont
to call "legato," in the performance
last night than one associates with I
the name of Rachmaninoff, less in-
sistence on the chiseled articula-
teness of individual notes.
The extreme delicacy of the
pianist's performance is strangely
paradoxical to the harshness of his
tone. It may be explained in part
by his careful avoidance of great
intensities of sound. Thus the Mo-
zart and Scarlatti were thoroughly
enjoyable but one felt that certain
parts of the Carnival, notably the
March of the Davidsbundler, should
have been.a little more grandiose.
But all these remarks are only
intended as comments on a great
performance. Mr. Rachmaninoff
j all in all displayed once more the
consummate mastery that belongs I
to the favored few of the world's
greatest; that there is a greater
is doubtful.
