The Editor:
Your leading editorial of March
14, "An Excellent Sign," voices a
strong plea for more attention to
the creative side of teaching in the
field of Fine Arts. With that at-
titude I am in complete sympathy.
The young sculptor who now joins
the faculty has an exceptional rec-
ord and will, I believe, contribute
greatly to the artistic life of the
University. I should like to say,
however, in. his behalf that his
name is Avard Fairbanks-not
Banks as twice given in the edi-
torial-and that his appointment
is not to the College of Architect-
ure. The facts were stated cor-
rectly in your issue of the thirt-

With the task of choosing a bus-
iness manager completed and work
on the new Women's League build-
ing near enough to completion so
that plans are now underway for
an opening on May 4, Michigan
women may well begin to sense a
feeling of achievement.
It is true that those who are most
interested in the project felt that
they had made a great step for-
ward when sufficient funds had
been secured to justify the letting
of building contracts and the be-
ginning of the actual work of con-
struction. Great as was their sense
of progress at that time, with the
day set for the opening of the
building less than two months
away and with that edifice already
taking formidable shape, the sense
of realization and achievement
which is theirs must re even the
Michigan women are to be con-
gratulated upon their work. The
perseverance and continued energy
with which they sought financial
aid for a building' which they con-
fidently expect to be superior to
the Union should not soon be for-
gotten as an' example of construc-
tive effort. It may only be hoped
that these same Michigan women
will find time to utilize their build-
ing much more fully than Michigan
men have used theirs. w
Now that Mr. Hoover has finally
recognized prohibition as an is-
sue, and is preparing to dispatch
a committee which will find out
how the eighteenth amendment
can be enforced, the open season
has arrived to speculate on what
that committee will report. One
speculation is absolutely safe: the
report will advance a program of
prohibition education.
Education has- been tale means
relied on by all nations to createI
and preserve their national ideals.
By education dry forces will try to1
create in the United States a gen-
ius for prohibition much as Italy
at the present time is trying to
preserve her genius" for religion
and painting. Unquestionably pro-]
hibition will stand or fall according
as our people can or cannot ber
educated up to it.
To the universities of the coun-
try where a stubborn drink tradi-f
tion flourishes, and where the

(From The Washington Post)
American education has under-
gone two scathing indictments
during the last few days, one of
them from within the system it-
self. Dr. Harold Florian Clark,
professor of education, in teachers
College, Columbia University, who
was assigned to inquire how educa-
tion affects earning power, has
brought in a preliminary report
that education is a handicap to
successful wage earning, and is
extending the problems of unem-
ployment to the professions.
Everett Dean Martin, social psy-
chologist, in an address at Balti-
more denounced American educa-
tion on the ground that "millions
of our high school graduates are
more insincere and vulgar in their
tastes than European peasants who
have never been to school."
Dr. Clark based his findings on
his belief that "education is just
as much a commodity as wheat and
must be governed by the same laws
of economics." He believes that the
so-called higher callings cannot
absorb the number of young men
and women who' are now attending
high schools, and therefore im-
putes criminality to the high school
teachers who encourage their stu-
dents to continue i on to college.
The fact that there are 800,000
students going to college and only
1,600,000 professional positions of
the kind they are seeking, will in
his opinion, force salaries down to
"unbelievable levels."
Dr. Clark seems to have been
laboring under the delusion that
there are only so many positions
that can be filled profitably by
college-trained men, and further,
that the sole objective of learning
is the ability to increase earning
power. When he entered the fields
of labor competition, he should
have remembered that machinery
is constantly reducing the need for,
unskilled labor, and that the man
with technical training is much
better equipped to retain his posi-
tion. 'Civilization is growing more
complex every year, and there is
constant expansion of the demand
for professional men, while the
need for hand labor is decreasing.
It is likely, too, that in the future
the working classes will demand a
reasonable amount of higher
learning for their personal satis-
faction, if not as a direct asset in
their employment.
Dr. Clark's opinion that educa-
tion is a "detriment to business"
because it teaches a student to
think his problems through before
acting, will be challenged from
many quarters. If there is one'
factor needed in a progressive
democratic country, it is the popu-
lar ability to think problems
through. If this asset -places men
at a disadvantage in business, it is
likely that the methods of busi-
ness and not the standards of
training will ultimately change.
These views of Americn schoils

Inlander magazine, g a s p i n g
breathlessly on the brink of obliv-
ion, are conducting a short-story
contest, lest they pass entirely be-
neath the horizon of student rec-
ognition. We intend, however, to
help Inlander, so we are submitting
the following story to their con-
test. We think it is precisely the
type that they would use.
A Story
Once upon a time little John
Jones walked down the street
to the butcher shop for to
fetch his mother some chops
which she would fry in a scaly
iron pan- for supper. It was
not far to the shop, so it
shouldn't have taken John a
long time. But it did.
Enroute he noticed things.
Little things. Tender little
things. Green tender little
things that made faces at him
and frightened him most to
death. It was grass, but John
knew it. He was a smart little
Hugo Muck, the butch, was a
man with a paunch, and a man
with a paunch was he. His
paunch was so big it looked like
a pig, and he sounded his s's
as z's. "Gut Morgen, Zshohn,"
he would say, and look at him
from beady eyes set in a greasy
forehead. "Vot a pigg mensch
you grow to pe, yes?" And then
he would steal back all the
pride with "Fine littul fela,
This always puzzled John. It
made him think about life.
Life puzzled John too. He re-
solved; against it. He would put
an end to that Man's teas~ng.
.' * *
He entered the store. "Gut
morgen, Zshohn,"- said the
butcher. "Vot a pigg mensch
you grow to pe, Yes?" John
braced his tiny legs. He knew
what was to follow. Soon it
came. Sneaking and sneering
from the butcher's baggy
throat. "Fine littul fella, No?"
* * *
John seized the sharp slim
knife that lay on the bloody
meat block and ran it through
the butcher's bloated belly.
Three times. "Sic semper
Tyrannes!" he cried, an left
the shop in disgust.
EDITOR'S NOTE-With this is-
sue Rolls presents the seventh of a
series of Interviews on the hobbies
of the prominent sudents on the
University campus. These inter-
views will appear daily, and will
they throw interesting sidelights
on the intimate lives of prominent
campus political puppets? Oh, my!

Fredrico Azzbek Enjoys Nothing
More Than A Lot Of School Spirit
Mr. Azzbek is one of these
impressive, stalwart gents whof
look so pleadingly in your eye
that you are almost led to be
fooled. He is one of these up
and coming fellows who like to
revive things bigger and better
and ever.

"Aye," Insisted Fredrico Azz-
bek, or Bosco as he is more in-
timately known, "I believe that
there is such a thing as Michi-
gan spirit. I believed it to be #
the duty of the Student Coun-
cil to keep it alive. Of course,
it must be favorable to the
State Street machine. That is
necessary if I am to remain in+
office. (Ed. Note: Mr. Azzbek,
you know, succeeded the late
Mr. Kern as president of the
Council, though of an oppos-
ing party.)
"Hence you see that my hob-
by is developing the campus
into a lot; of rah rah boys who
know the second verse of the
Yellow and the Blue and whoI
will sing it in the cheering sec-f
tion at football games. I be-
lieve in all sorts of traditions,
and it is on the programs of
the Council to further them,
especially when such a further-
ance will help Sphinx to get
back in status quo ate."f
So you can.see from Mr. Azz-
bek's hobby that he certainly
is a breezy, up-and-at-'em type
of fellow with a lot of punch
and drive. A regular he-man
with he-man ideas. And the
funny part about it all is that
he really is serious about it. j

TONIGHT: The Junior Girls offer
their play, "Forward March", at

Reviewed by Sylvia Stone
Presenting its premier perform-~
ance to a house crowded with hi-
larious senior women, "Forward
IMarch", twenty-fifth annual Jun-
for Girls' Play, scored a distinct
success at the Whitney 'theater last
night. Responding to the enthu-
siasm in front of the curtain, the
cast produced a scintillating pro-
duction which brought a thunder
of cheers even after the closing
finale had been repeated a fourth
With the mythical land of Gyno-
cocracy for its setting, the audience
is immediately informed that this
is to be a tale of a nation of wom-
en, governed by the women, and for
the women. This obviously re-
quires a greater number of femi-
nine roles than is the usual case
and is one of the strong poiilts of
the book.
The plot, it seems, is concerned
with a commercial war waged by
the State of Gnococracy against its
neighbors the Swiss over the min-
ing of "cold cream," the leading
produce of the country. To tell the
truth, one loses sight of the plot
,quite frequently since it is but loose-
ly constructed, and the interest
centers about the loves of Julie
(Helen Bush), leading lady and
daughter of the President of Gyno-
cocracy, and her American chum,
Gwen (Lillian Setchell).
Reviewing the play as a whole,
probably the most distinct and1
pleasing recollection is that of the
unusual amount of individual tal-
ent displayed. The outstanding act-i
ing in the show is done by Lillian
Setchell; as Gwen, the soubrette,
she is a captivating bit of vivacity,
worthy of the professional stage.
Her interpretation of "Mine Baby"
in the second act, assisted by Wally
(Kathleen Suggs), excels in anima-
tion and pert modernity.
She has a close second in Oswald,
the husband of the President, who
carries his role of the hen-pecked
mate -'sdWcessfully and provides
several truly humorous situations,
conspicuous for their lack of the
slap-stick element which might be
LarrydLane (Dora Vandenberg),
the leading man, is admirable. Not
only is the role well-played but he
has in addition a fine voice and a
charming personality. He plays
opposite Julie (Helen Bush) who is
sweet and feminine and makes
good her part. She possesses the
outstanding voice in the show, and
does well in putting across the love
lyric "Right Out of Heaven", and
"The Reason Why".
Margaret Ohlson carries the im-
portant though somewhat heavy
role of President. She manages,
however, to break away from the
mock pomp of her office at times
and gives the audience some good
bits of abvious humor.
i One of the high spots of the per-
formance is the musical number
"Yodel for Me" in the ,second act.
It is the occasion for a delightful
bit of farce betwen Oswald and his I

Swiss cook, including a ridiculousl-
ly amusing caper-if it may so be
termed-by the cook (Helen Hart-
er). This and the "Professor Mac-
Pherson" mind reading scene go a
long way toward redeeming a sec-
ond act which is inclined to drag.
"Will I do! You'l have to," a
dispute between Oswald and his
President-wife, affords one of the
heartiest laughsof the evening. An
excellent contrast is struck in thel
satirical take-off on "Strange In-1
terlude", which is successfully pre-I
sented by the villainess, Minnie the
Menace (Miriam Fuchs). The part
of the villainess is well-acted, Miss
Fuchs showing an easy composure
on the stage.
The choru'ses show the result of
good training of good material.
The "Breakdown" specialty led by
Elaine Frost has a new note to
offer. Miss Frost exhibits a charm-
ing spirit of childlike play-acting.
The whole production gives evi-
dence at every point of careful di-
recting, and Miss Phyllis Lough-
ton, 28, deserves much praise for
her work. Music and costumes are
both fine and heighten the per-
formance. "Paris Bound" is gay
and sparkling, "Right Out of
Heaven" and "The Reason Why"'
are easy lilting tunes. The cos-
tumes, bright and colorful, show'
originality and vary from the mar-
