C!the University function of giving
learning has been noticed.
So far, the students, who have
found the college and university
administration heads poking noses,
into their private lives outside the
schoolroom and school work, have
borne it bravely, even going so far
as givingup automobiles at sev-
eral schools, the wearing of bloom-
ers by women students at Indiana
university, and other regulations of
private life which may appear
queer to many outside the field of
education. But in most of these
cases, justification has ,been found
for the rules, far-fetched as they
may appear to a layman.
But the University of Detroit
heads have apparently left behind
any of the sane reasoning that
may have gone with the other reg-
ulations, and have taken a step
which should make educational ad-
ministration a jest around the na-
tion. It has found it necessary to
threaten with immediate expulsion
any woman student seen in' con-
versation with a man on the De-.
troit campus.
So this is modern .education
with its latitude of expression and
knowledge! .When the dean of
women at the school complains
that the ruling is necessary be-
cause of the waste of time that is
caused by the comparatively few
women students stopping to talk
to the males, it is nothing but
amusing. It reaches the state of
real humor however when she adds
that she cares little if one woman
would talk tol only one or two men
but when one talks to eight or ten
gathered around her on the cam-
pus walks, it is high time to object.
Poor woman of the University of
Detroit! This is one of the few
times in history that such a mis-
fortune has befallen your sex.. Not
alone do you see your recognised
right of spech taken away, but you
see it imposed by nothing more
feudal than the administration of
a college in which you are sup-
posed to be receiving an education.
It is to be hoped that some real
opposition .will be shown to this
action. University and college ad-
ministrations have been taking
themselves altogether too serious-
ly for the general good of those to
whom they administer and for the
good of, Education as a whole. On
such a picayune measure as this,
the chance for the jolt to be given
has come. Speech, girls!

Harlan Xenophon Cristee Loves
Self More than Anything Else
"From my eariest recollec-
tion," bragged H. Xenophon
Cristee, jovially called "Bag-
pipe" among his friends, "I
have alway thought I was
pretty good. Hence all my life
some one has approved of me.
Everything I ever did, say, or
thought (which was very little,
to be sure) appealed to me. I
am thankful to say that there
is not another boy like me in
the world."
We cannot but agree with Mr.
"Because of this characteris-
tic, my hobby has been con-
gratulating myself for every-
thing and anything. I just
gloat over myself. I have a
manner of doing things that no
one e'se ever has had. That
probably is why I congratulate
myself so frequently.
The time I made a mistake,"
here Mr. Cristee laughed that
conciliatory laugh of his, "'al-
most' convinced me that I was
wrong in my impression of my-
self, but I soon recovered and
got the better of myself. It
was not hard.
"Yes," continued Mr. Cristee,
"the letter' to wear out first on
my typewriter is the letter 'I'."j
A newly-married couple, the
bride 67 and the groom 74, have
filed suit for a divorce. All of
which just goes to prove that the
first hundred years are the hardest.

The ex-king of Bulgaria is in
Cape Town, chasing butterfies
in compliance with a hobby of
his. Now the mother butter-
flies in Africa will warn their
progeny that if they go out at
night they'll be "just like the
butterfly that was caught in
the reign."
That august journal, The Wash-
tenaw Tribune, training ground for
our University journalism depart-
ment, has intimated, just with a
sly hint, nothing open, you know,
just a mild innuendo, that this ad-
mirable paper was "peeved" be-
cause the Tribune scoopedeus (they
just love to use those obsolete
journalistic terms which they
probable got from a Richard Hard-
ing Davis novel) on a story. We
reply to the youthful editors (they
must be ,youthful or college men
or something to makel so many
breaches of ethics) that we are not
sore because the Tribune scooped
us (if they did). We only get sore
when a newspaper sc.oops us.
. A man in New York claims
that he has made some 348
trips across the Atlantic in the
past few years. Well, that is
one way for Americans to evade

some of the instructors and pro-

TONIGHT: The Junior Girls pre-
sent their satiric extravaganza,
"Forward March" at the Whit-
ney Theatre, beginning at 8:15
Reviewed by R. Leslie Askren
For once in a way someone, or
some bodies, with a sense of humor
staged a Junior Girls' Play and the
result is eminently worth awhole
evening's time. The author kid-
ded the book, the cast kidded the
author, the chorus kidded the cast
and the whole outfit kidded the
audience into thinking it was fun-
which it certainly was, especially
when served up by the freshest
and most ambitious gang of Jun-
iors seen in the course of this col-
legiate generation.
There really would seem little
more to be said.
Unless it be this; that author
Frances Sackett-and besides writ-
ing the thing she did a day's work
in the various choruses-has begun
with one of the wetter ideas for a
book and proceeded to ring (no
pun intended) in a collection of
puns to such an extent that the
show not only stopped dead but
went back about three thousand
years-which was exactly the right
thing to do considering the fact
that nobody took anything serious-
ly and was all eyes for Lillian Set-
chell, and Helen Bush, to say quite
nothing at all about Dora Vanden-
Berg and Kathleen Suggs. But
then, it is difficult to say anything
about a cast that had such a good
time and succeeded in infecting
the audience with it too. By com-
parison, The Opera was a dour
show, excepting always the ebulli-
ent Dan Buell. And if the Opera
had a tighter book and better mu-
sic, no one really cares because
the J-P is a play-show and much'
more fun.
Certainly Bob Carson's band in
the pit made the music, with the
help of a couple of fine voices, for
to .speak any more critically of its
writing would be to catalogue a
series of reminiscences. Song num-
bers that will be the hum of the
campus seem to be "Right Outof
Heaven", and "Paris Bound" in
which Kathleen Suggs glittered.
Another number, eccentric dance,
I that.atad out like the proverbial
needle in the haystack was Helen
Harter's Swiss cheese walk. She
managed a tight sort of unrhythm
that was a knockout.
The second act dragged a trifle,
perhaps because the author
thought to take himself seriously
over the plot, but the elan, the
esprit, or whatever it was that
made the show so peppy and fresh
saved the whole to make it a mar-
velous show.

Proportion, delicate balance, me-

constitute the salient factors of
last night's trio concert. At no
time was one instrument harshly

Throughout the performance there

were as, one organ-like instrument.
Sudden fortes and sudden pianos

Now that dormitories can be
brought into the conversation
without producing a chorus of
groans from the great female army
of room-renters, and without caus-
ing worthy citizens to invoke the
Deity through the Washtenaw
Tribune, it may safely be recalled
that the dormitory movement
here and elsewhere is still. going
In this connection it is interest-
ing to note that' the aims of the
movement diverge at Ann Arbor.
This University plans to begin
construction next year on a huge
dormitory housing 500 students.
while other universities contem-
plating dormitory erection have
adopted the small unit plan. The
wherefores of our rejecting the
more modern practice of smaller
units should be weighedhcarefully
against the opinion of the leading
thought in dormitory design.
Clearly there is one outstanding
motive behind the huge size of the
proposed dormitory-the necessity
of getting as much dormitory as
possible for the money, since the
firm financing its construction is
not in the. business purely for its
health. Also, with the league house
situation what it is, there is a
natural wish to provide dormitory.
space for girls as soon as possible.
Balanced against these argu-
ments is the undeniable prefer-
ence expressed in many places for
the superior intimacy of the small
unit. The University of Virginia is
building dormitory units of three
floors with eight men living on
each floor, making a total of 24
students using each entrance as
compared with the 125 that will
use each entrance*of the proposed
building on Observatory street.
Similar units have been built for
the Harvard Business school, and
the local Lawyers' Club reflects the
spirit of small dormitory commu-
While it is probably too late to
alter plans for the next dormitory,
unit, cognizance should be taken
in the future of the newer fash-
ion. Michigan parading huge new#
dormitories will be the object ofI
the same sort of glances that would
follow a hooped skirt and wasp;
