But there is a precedent in the
fact that enforcement officers who

It certainly does not speak very well

the objection merely to shooting.

Attention may well be called in
these columns to the holding today
of the New York Times Current
Events contest in which Michigan
students are annual participants.
Aside from offering valuable cash
awards without demanding a great
deal of conscious preparation, the
contest seems a desirable thing and
is assuredly designed to serve a
worthy purpose.
It is a fact often deplored by
members of the University faculty
sponsoring the competition that
there seems tq be little active in-
terest among the student body in
the following of current events and
even less interest in the current
events contest. Seemingly even
the liberal cash prizes offered to
the winners by the Times are not
sufficient to induce even a small
portion of the total enrollment to
take the axamination.-
No surer proof of the need which
the contest seeks to meet can be
offered than to point to the fact
that the highest grade ever made
by a Michigan contestant is 80.
Whether, under any circumstances,
such competition will ever succeed
in stimulating a great deal of r-
terest in the news of the day i
at best problematical.
There can be little doubt, how-
ever, that the contest has a number
of desirable features. More than
that, it may be said with certainty
that the annual competition is
proving and will continue to prove
a thing of definite value d~~
ing encouragement from ouiden
and increased participation on the
part of members of the student
body here as well as in other col-
leges and universities. The cum-
ulative news of the day is history
in the making, and a knowledge of
history is essential in intelligent

Various yellow and black posters
adorning the local bulletin boards
bear witness to the imminent ap-
pearance in Ann Arbor High School
auditorium of The Puppeteers,, un-
der auspices of The Harris Players
through their director, J. Raleigh
Nelson. The young men who will
present their miniature dramas,
principally designed for the amuse-
ment of the adolescent, less scrupu-
lously realistic mind, but invariably
fascinating to sophisticates who
find a charming element of phan-
tasy in puppetry, are Forman
Brown and Harry Burnett.
Harry Burnett, Michigan, '23, was
subsequently at Yale with Prof.
George Pierce Baker whence he
achieved a scholarship for foreign
study of marionettes and pupettry.
One of the outstanding results of
his foreign research was a produc-
tion of marionette shows, with cos-
tumes and scenery designed by
Norman Bel Gedes which secured
wide attention when presented and
will be offered again when a per-
manent theater has been estab-
lished for the art.
Forman Brown, Michigan '22, as
a student was responsible for one
of the Michigan Union Opera books
(in those dear, dead days-Ed,) and
later was Instructor in the Rhretoric1k
department. He broke into pub-
lication with "Walls" in 1926, a
book in verse. Other poeus have
appeared in "Dial" and other
magazines, while a second colle-
tion of verse is to appear this
spring from the publishing house
of Robert Packard, Clicago.
The interest which attaches it-
self to these mncii for their Ui-
versity connection and for the wide
success of their miniature dramas
guarantees considerable pleas re in
