One is tempted to speculate how,
if Congress will not vote funds forl
federal enforcement and if the'
states repeal their enforcement
laws, is the constitution to be up-
held?
Another legitimate speculation
concerns the building up of a pub-
lic opinion in sympathy with en
forcement. To date the most vali-
ant efforts of the dry squad have
served to arouse a storm of popu-
lar resentment against such out-
rages as the brutal DeKing slaying,
the murdering of an innocent man
by a tipsy, ununiformed federal of-
ficer near Buffalo, and the I'm
Alone sinking in the Gulf of Mexi-
co. To this list we might append
last fall's discovery that three-
fourths of the dry agents patrol-

pay of rum runners.

SftING VACATION
Uppermost in the minds of most
Michigan students this morning is
the fact that today is the last dayI
of classes before spring vacation.
Within the next 24 hours the large
majority of the members of the
student body will be at home for
a brief but welcome respite from
the rigors of scholastic endeavor.
This vacation time, as always,
will be :a time in which a few of
the more industrious of Michigan
students will prepare thesis assign-.
ments. A few others, in morel des-
perate straits scholasticly, will
devote the majority of their time
to making up long overdue assign,-
ments or neglected collateral read-
ing.
To the large majority, however,
the coming week will be a vacation
in fact as well as in, name. It does
not seem unreasonable to suggest
to this group that the commu-
nities into which they are going
cannot help but regard them as
representatives of the University,
and judge Michigan and Michigan
students by the impression which"
they make. ...
It may seem unimportant to
many that such a distinction ,
should exist but that it does ist
none the less .true. "Among those
most interested in Michigan arer
graduating . high school studentsk
who are looking critically for a
college or university. Only ast
Michigan menn '-give a favorable
impression of themselves and of
life in Ann Arbor can their alma"
mater expect to attract as fresh-
meh those of this group best qual-
ified and equipped for college life.i
Prefaced only by this somewhat
sermonlike appeal,.i The Daily ex-
tends to every member of the Uni-c
versity the hope that the oncom-r
ing vacation period may provec
both enjoyable and profitable.'

Much has been said recently of
Michigan's economic land survey,
in which the entire state is map-;
ped out so that all units of land
may be reserved to their best use.
Michigan, a state with much
sandy as well as fertile area in ad-+
dition to other grades of land, has
infinite possibilities for varied
uses of her area. Not " all land
can be devoted to any use, but al-'
most all land has some use. What
cannot be devoted to agriculture
may have a better use in timber
growing. It is precisely the pur-
pose of the survey to determine
what use each piece of land has
and what its best use is.
Practical economics requires that
any factor to be highly productive
must be put to that use to which it
is best suited to avoid any waste.
Michigan's plan has formed the
groundwork for an extensive and
profitable development of' the state
that should turn much land which
is being wasted into an asset in-
stead of the liability that it is. The
survey deserves much praise and
should be followed by many other
states, since it has already received
the commendable recognition of
the federal forest service.

THE MASTER'S DEGREE
(From New York Herald Tribune)
A Bachelor's degree has a certain
current value in American life,
and a Doctor's degree means some-
thing, even though doctors disagree
as to just what it means. But the
intermediate degree, the M. A., has
been a sort of academic orphan-
sometimes respected and some-
times treated as an unhappy ne-
cessity.,
Fifty years ago the elder univer-
sities gave the Master's degree to
any worthy graduate who has sur-
vived five years of postgraduate ex-
istence without obvious mishap
and was able to pay a small fee to
the college treasury. Latterly the
degree has tended to win a new
respect. But at Harvard even to-
day it is given to anyone who com-
pletes a year as a graduate stu-
dent with the modest grade of B°
in four courses. They may be
cou-rses frequented chiefly by
undergraduates and only remotely
related to one another, the degree
follows automatically upon the
grades. Now Dean Clifford Moore
proposes that the plan worked out
in the department of economics be
adopted, whereby students shall
begin at once upon serious re-
search and receive a Master's de-
gree only when they have shown

The presentation last night of
"Ruth of Moab" by the Wesley
Players did not quite come up to
expectations. The acting, with a
few exceptions, was mediocre. Ruth,
the Moabitess, played by Jean L.
Currie was the outstanding char-!
acter of the play and was fairly
well portrayed. The part of Naomi,
mother-in-law to Ruth, was taken
by Rebecca Cole. While her inten-
tions were good she failed to give

,the impression of age that the part
required. Joseph Howell, playing
the double role of Gurguna and
Hanniel, was not at all convincing.
Herschel Blanks as Boaz rated well
and had several moments of in-
spiration. The most interesting
character of the play was Adnah,
the old nurse, played by Marguerite
Cornell.
Colorful costumes and setting
completed the general scenic effect.
