thousands of small investors who
are hit hard in cases of financial
semi-panics.
It has been stated that addition-
al legislation is necessary to bring
about better regulation. That may
be true. It has also been stated
that the power invested in the
board is too great, while others
maintain it is not sufficiently in-
clusive. It would but extremely

THE POSTOFFICE
One of the blessings of a new
administration is that a new view-
point can discover what have been
stumbling blocks to the old. With
Hoover's appointment of Mr.
Brown to the postmaster general-
ship a general reorganization is
promised in that deficient depart-
ment.
One of the first reforms will
ideal with the assistant postmaster
generals. In the past, the first as-
sistant has selected post office
sites and settled personnel dis-
putes, but his new duties will con-
sist of formulating policies and
executing them in conjunction with
the postmaster general. Thus will
a constant system of inquiry be
maintained that will keep the de-
partment in a condition of flux,
so that its methods can be changed
with each new need. Perhaps the
many services now furnished by
the department will be extended
and new ones created, for certain-
ly through the post office depart-
ment does the government have
the means of direct contact with
all people. Foreign countries, for
example, utilize their postoffice
systems to perform duties other
than those of the mails.
The third assistant will be select-
ed with the view of setting the de-
partment on a firm business basis.
He will be a public accountant who
understands the "broader phases of
business."
It will be his duty to look after
the Ifinancial affairs of the de-
partment, so that its needs may be
budgeted and the whole depart-
ment run efficiently. This should
eliminate the huge deficit report-
ed this year. One way of cutting
down this deficit would be to
abolish the franking privilege of
congressmen. Their privilege is
much abused for personal uses
around campaign times and is a
considerable load on the depart-
ment. But this would require a bill
through congress, which is not
anxious to lessen its privileges.
The assistant in charge of air
mail will be retained. This divi-
sion alone has been one of the
,successesof the retiring adminis-
tration. But it is to be hoped that
the apparent viriliy of the new ad-

CONFLICTING DATES
Forgetting for the moment the
many colorful traditions which
have long been established as a
part of the life which Michigan
students may enjoy, there seems to
be something to be said at this
time relative to two beautiful cus-
toms which many organizations on
the campus have kept alive for
many years. These two are Moth-
ers' week-end and Fathers' week-
end programs which are sponsored
by the union and by fraternities
and sororities..
Comment on the desirability of
these events is entirely unneces-
sary. Their worth is inherent, and
they should be a vital phase of the
life of every student on the cam-
pus. A few hours spent in trying
to display a little appreciation for
the sacrifices made by fond moth-
ers and fathers is. time extremely
well spent.
Mothers' day is observed in al-
most every community in the'

PROF. JACK INTERVIEWED
In accordance with the very
broad minded policy of the Editor
of the Women's page in supporting
the movement for the development
of a University Ttheatre, Professor
Jack yesterday gave utterance to
an incisive observation. His con-
tention is that with the achieve-
ment of such a workshop the extra
curricular dramatic organizations
will prosper, not fall, under the
competition.
On the face of it this seems a
contradiction, but interested prop-
iets have only to turn to the new
Women's League Theatre for an.
analogous situation. Mrs. W. D.
Henderson in an interview ex-
pressed her keen desire to see the
League facilities open to every pro-
ducing organization that cares to
use thein -and at the lowest rental
possible (rumor sets the figure at
about half the price of Mimes The-
atre rental). To encourage this
nonpartisan use Comedy Club, with
a membership of both men and
women, was invited to open the
playhouse. "Granite" by Clemence
Dane, with Paul Stephenson direct-
ing, is the bill: the following week
iirector Windt offer a Play Pro-
duction group doing "The Beggar
on Horseback" to raise funds for
their laboratory season. There is
no definite information regarding
subsequent bills, but the attitude
is obviously to offer improved the-
atrical facilities as cheaply as pos-
sible.
If the situation remains un-
changed as far as the campus is
concerned-and rumor is insistent
that it will not, that outside stock
will be imported, to use the League
Theatre-a split would seem im-
minent, with Play Production pur-
suing its policy of laboratory pro-
ductions, Mimes using their theatre
more and more to offset the losses
of clientele like Comedy Club,
Comedy Club producing in the
League Theatre, and various other
groups, at present dormant, reviv-
ing under the advantages of the
new League proposition.
The result would seem to be a
firm establishment of the dramatic
renai sance started some five years
ago with Henderson, Loomis,
Loughton et al. But an establish-
ment along more reasonable fi-
nancial lines and competition turn-
ing "cut-throat" only in the matter
of types of bills presented-than
which nothing could be better
either for the student actors or the
drama-minded public.

AFTER VACATION
Announcement comes from the
Circolo Italiano that they will
sponsor a concert of Italian music
April 17, the first Wednesday after
vacation, to be given in Morris
Hall. Mr. Nicolas Falcone has
formed a small orchestra of some
15 instruments which will give a
number of the more familiar op-
eratic seletions, and a number of
interesting soloists will contribute
to the program, which is:
11 Barbiere de Siviglia.....Rossini
La Traviata-selections....,Verdi

Medley of Neapolitan Songs-
Orchestra, Nicholas Falcone
conducting

Le Nozze di Figaro.... !..Mozart

A group of operatic selections-
Mr. Otis Orra Patton

The concert will be free to thej
public and the calibre of the solo-'
ists, with Mr. Nicolas Falcone's ta-
lent as conductor of orchestra,
should guarantee an enjoyable
performance.

day in May, ,and the logical ar- ministration will enable it to sur-
rangement would be for the stu- pass the general stagnation of the
dents of Michigan to hold their past.

Mothers' week programs during
that week-end which this year
would include May -10, 11, and 12.
A dramatic organization has sug-
gested this date on which:they may
put on a special performance for
the mothers, and for those who
love sport as do fathers, there will
be a baseball game on Saturday
afternoon.
Plans made by the Union, how-I
ever, do not follow this logical
course. On the contrary, the Union
committee has set this particular
time for their Fathers and Sons'
banquet as the feature of a Fath-
ers' day program. Such a thing
is not disgraceful, nor will it cause
a world conflict, but it does seem;
to indicate a slip in judgment.
May The Daily, then, suggest that
plans be altered accordingly, and
assist in the promotion of a
Mothers' day program on the week-
end of May 10, 11, and 12. .
BULLS AND BEARS1

OUR TERRIBLE TONGUE
Why, among various movements
for bettering the English tongue,
doesn't some one institute a move-
ment to place pronunciation on a
scientific basis? We cite the ex-
ample of a foreigner who weakens
his eye sight trying to distinguish
the difference in speech between
cite, sight, and site.
Perhaps this difficulty above
noted cannot be eliminated with-
out destroying the composition of
the English language from its va-
rious root languages. But there is
some system of pronunciation in
most languages, such as French
and the tongue of Caesar and
Cicero, whereby the word is pro-
nounced as it is spelled, and where
there appears to be inviolable rules
of pronounciation. In English, for
example, a double consonant after
a vowel makes that vowel short as
in the case of word "stopped," but
then a direct contradiction to this'
general rule is exemplified in the I
word "clamor", which is pro-
nounced as if it were spelled
"clammer" instead of with a long
