save making work harder for the
average student, arc awarded
scholarships.In a word, the school
awards them a prize because, in
the majority of cases they have
foregone the pleasures and con-
tacts of school life and mutual
helpfulness, and by so doing have
accomplished more work than
those who partook of the fuller
An) examination of this bit of
reasoning reveals that it is morel
startling than meritorious. It would)
seem the the Missourians would
raise their school to be a stadium. I
As for the attack on honor stu-
dents, the merit of the honor stu-
dent lies in just that which the
"Missouri Sudent" bemoans, the
fact that the honor man brings up
the average and emphasizes
scholarship in a university. As long
as theMissouri paper wishes that
its universi~ remain an education-
an institu on, such editorial gib-
berish is uncalled for. If the "Stu-
dent" urges that the name of the
University of Missouri be changed
to the "Missouri Athletic Plant" its
editorial is very feasible.
In an address to both houses of
the state legislature, Coach Field-
ing H. Yost commented on the
need of physical education and on
the need for proper equipment for
the training. While in his mind
Coach Yost has a plan which
would require the building of a
new gymnasium near the Union
and connected to that building by
a tunnel, he diplomatically refrain-
ed from asking for appropriations
for the new unit of the athletic
Although the famous grid coach
feels that it is a project which
should be taken over by the state
as an addition to the educational
facilities of the University, he has
not tried to force another burden
upon the revenues of the state. He
has explained the need as it actual-
ly is and probably will rely entire-
ly upon the judgment of the legis-
lators to provide for the needs of
the University. In this they have
seldom fallen short, and in this
case they may be expected to do
the wise thing.
Coach Yost has emphasized the
opinion that the youth of today is
smarter and less likely to be trick-
ed than in the olden days, and that
with proper training they may be
expected to become better citizens
than his own, the present, genera-
tion. The legislators, as public
servants,.seldom fail to provide for
the means of betterment of the

Mark Antony Lark, thus
named because his ears were
unusually large, and also be-
cause the neighbors had
named their daughter Ueo-
patra. (low's that for subtlety?
He greeted us with a warm
and hearty hand-clasp and a
dazzling smile and'offered us
an Old Gold. (We're still try-
ing to give ours away too,
Lark.) His corner of The Daily
Office radiated such an at-
mosphere of distinct charm. A
little chintz lamp cast a sub-
dued glow over the marble-top-
ped desk and illuminated
ivory-framed woodcuts of con-
temporaries (as W. Rogers,
Dorothy Dix, S. Leacock and
the Gargoyle Staff.)
"Do sit down," moving the
cretonne-covered waste basket.
We sat.
"You're interested in your
work, Lark?" Thus us-.
Says, "Yes! It's so creative."
(Lark is a&ways humorous even
in, his best and wisest mo-
Wenattempted to draw him
out. "What' is your greatest
ambition, Lark?"
Says, "To be Warden of the
check-room in the new Wo-
men's League Bldg. Also a
secret desire todgo highbrow
and make Inlander." Lark
sighed. We held our breath.
"Once I dreamed of
being president. But. . Rolls

"What is Rolls' platform?"
Says, "All the news that isn't

"And your hobby, Lark?"
Lark looked at us coldly. Ile
towered over us. "You. . you
dare to ask THAT?" he cried.
But the anger in his eyes soon
changed to a haunting look of
sorrow. Looking melancho!i-
cally' about him, he dashed
fron the office (without his
hat, mind you.)
"Do you believe in Santa
Claus?" we shouted after him

ly, but a thin "Yess" floated
back to us. . . nothing more.
Dear temperamental Lark!
Strange are the ways of genius.

There are so many things which
might be said about the produc-
tion of "Redemption" last night by
Play Production, that the reviewer'
is forced with the fact that not,]
even one ;off many which merit
discussion and praise, such as the
work of the cast, the direction and
interpretation of this masterpiece,!
or the make-up and staging, can
be treated adequately.
Certainly there may, and have
been better professional perfor-
mances of the play, but anyone
who sees Play Production's labora-
tory presentation will be unable
to go away from it without feeling
,that this great, and difficult play
has been done with a splendid sim-
plicity which unquestionably makes
it the high water mark in campus
dramatics for many years.

Truesdale Mayers as Fedya was
the outstanding actor of the eve-
ning, and this is more remarkable
since his part is the most difficult
in the play. To portray, as he did,
the deep torment of a beautiful,
sensitive, and weak soul who real-
izes the full beauty of life and yet
sinks into the lowest degradation
finally to rise to supreme nobility
,by the sacrifice of his own life for
those whom he feels have in some
subtle way destroyed his own hap-
piness, is truly the closest approach
to art which has been seen on the
campus in a long time.;
In the great panorama of hu-
man characters presented in "Re-
demption" where the actors range
from the'nobility to the tramp, it
is hard to be unable to pay tribute
to the whole of the large cast in-
dividually, and even more diffi-
cult to chose from the fine perfor-
mances those about which some-
thing certainly should be said.
Shirley King as Lisa gave a very
good portrayal of a character
quite different from any she has
done before. Twisted by her love
for two men, continually being
played upon by different and.
powerful forces in her own nature
which contribute to the tragedy,
the character Lisa is probably the
most complex in the play,- next al-
ways to Fedya.
I In the part of Victor Karenin,
Charles Peake did not completely
fulfill expectations. One could not
get awayfrom the feeling that he
was always a little conscious of the
audience, .and that he was not in
the part with full sincerity.
Masha, the pure love in Fedya's j
life, the gypsy girl, was played with
feeling by Mildred Todd, and one
feels that here is a new and prom-
ising actress.
Wallace Baxter as the drunken
"genius", Ivan Alexandrov should
certainly be mentioned, not only
for his fine work in the part, but
also because the character examp-
lifies the sweep of Tolstoy's pen.
Ivan is really only a comedy figure
worked into this sombre drama,
but yet it seems that he is an in-
tregral part because he is a por-
tion of his creator's conception of
the humor and pathos of life.

One of the finest features of the

was not particularly- interesting,
was the absence of applause be-

YOU'LL agree that Pep Bran Flakes are
better the very first time you try them.
Order them at your campus cafeteria
or at the fraternity restaurant. These
better bran flakes bring you the nourish-
ment of wheat. Just enough bran to
make them mildly laxative.
And how crisp they are! Eat them
with milk and cream. A perfect food
any time. You'll agree at the first taste
these bran flakes made by Kellogg of
Battle Creek are better.

The University again has t
mourn the sudden death of one o
its best known and most highli
esteemed professors, Robert Marl
Wenley. The shock of his deatl
leaves us with bowed heads. Pro
fessor Wenley has been so long an
so prominently identified with ou
campus, as a vigorous thinker an
a stimulating teacher, that his los
comes home to us all with thi
deepest regret. To those student,
and other friends who have beer
privileged to know Professor Wen
ley his death is accompanied by2
deep sense of personal loss.
For years the students at Michi-
gan have crowded Professor Wen
ley's classes. Many students have
selected to hear his lectfures or
philosophy, attracted in the first
instance by his dynamic personal-
ity. In his class-room student
have learned to admire and then
to follow his brilliant and inde=
pendent pursuit of truth for truth's
sake. His influence in awaking the
minds of his hearers to a degree of
alertness unsuspected by them-
selves cannot be forgotten by those
that have experienced this process
As a teacher we have lost in Pro-
fessor Wenley; a man who not only
could point the way inspiringly, but
could himself lead to the heights
of truth and wisdom.
The man behind the scholar and
the teacher in Professor Wenley
was the source of his influence.
Forceful, always cheerful, with
sympathy for causes and persons
that deserved sympathy, impatient
of less than one's best, whether his
own or others, he faced life reso-
lutely. Self pity was alien to his
nature. Gifted; with unusual ability
and power of self expression, he
spoke out more frankly than most
men. The record of his observa-
tions on our campus, recorded in
his diary over the period of his
residence in Ann Arbor, when pub-
lished, should reveal him as his
friends knew him, a cheerful phil-
osopher, a sympathetic friend, and
a helpful guide in the counsels of
the University which he so faith-
fully served.

The absence of such tactics at
the recital yesterday left one a mo-

number to linger over it, and drift
gradually into the mood of the
next without shattering all aesthe-

The appreciation of such a twilight
concert might be even further in-

torium yesterday.
The first half of the program,
