Congress. It passed th e House
during the recent regular session

Ing of reapportionment is quite,
significant of the character of the
man. Although Michigan will re-

this act, the Senator is guided pri-

application of the Constitution.
Mr. Vandenberg's stand is of im-

the state has a Senator in Wash-

man" senator Mr. Vandenberg is a
man of wide acquaintance with
matters relative to the national
government. He has been a close
student and critic of the political
life at Washington for many years,
he has been an ardent Republican,
but constantly fighting for only the
better elements of that party, and
he has been long acquainted with
many of the nation's leaders. His
entrance to the Senate was into an

SUNDAY, APRIL 21, 1929
Many snggestions for handling
the problem of drinking at Ira-
ternity dances have been project-
ed in the past with uncertain suc-,
cess aiid the matter seems certainI
to hold the attention of regulatoryl
committees again next fall. I 'har
been suggested recently that if
regular, permanent, "chaperones
were assigned to each fraternity
but not necessarily alumnki mem-
bers and their wives, attend every
social function given by the or-
ganization throughout the particu-
lar year.
The idea nas several advantages
which will help in the improvement
of the situation. For one thing, if
the same persons chaperone several
affairs, it is quite obvious that the
identity of the few regular offend-
ers of liquor proprieties must be
come known to, the chaperones,
whereas under the old system of
changing supervision the same re-
sult would not obtain.
Certainly the new idea has gen-
uine possibilities. Such chaperones,
detecting the 'difficulties through
repeated visits to the particular
fraternity house, will be in a po-
sition to advise disciplinary meas-
ures where necessary; moreover
they could place the blame where
it should be justly settled rather
than permitting blanket accusa-
tions of fraternities by which the
innocent suffer for the few guilty
The plan should commend itself
readily to that large majority of
persons on the campus interested
in bringing about a' general better-
mnent of the liquor situation iIn
fraternities. A number of other
schools have had crises in that con-
nection, but Michigan has been
fortunate in finding a milder as-
pect of the difficulty. To continue
a good record and to perhaps elim-,
inate the evident slips which oc-
cur during a year's social events,
the powers that be will do well to
consider the new solution.

with the fundamental issues and
needs of the nation, and the na-
tion in relation to his constituency.
While possessing marked ability
and wide experience, Mr. Vanden-
berg's position is of interest, fur-
ther he is, comparatively, a young
man in the Senate. He will be
able to rise high in the ranks of
the Senate and become Michigan's
most noted representative in Wash-
ington -since Lewis Cass. Further,
he will be able to serve an appren-
ticeship in the higher politics of
the national government, before
commanding. a position at the top
of the Federal government which
his service is sure to merit. His
remarkable reception in the Senate
chamber since -his sappointment
something over a year ago has
caused many to mention him as
probable presidential timber of
years to come.

Rolls, always endeavors to be
right up to 'the minute, and so
today the column will be wet.
First in -the D. O. B. -Friday was
a notice to the effect that the B.
& G. boys would surprise the
campus with a fire drill at some
hour during the day. The exact
time was kepta secret and we got
more and more excited as the day
dragged on, although we were ask-
ed not to be alarmed when the
siren blew.
* * * -
Well, just as we were about to
give up and call the whole thing a
mean hoax the siren suddenly
burst out upon the clear air and
we dropped our work and rushed
madly outdoors. The time was ex-
actly 2:34-an ideal time for a fire
drill, but you can imagine our
chagrin when we failed to find the
efficient firefighters. We didn't
hear a single bell, or see a soli-
tary fire engine. Heartbroken, we
returned to the office where we
learned that there had) been a tre-
mendous clatter up and down the
diagonal, some enthusiastic cheer-
ing from interested spectators, and
then peace and quiet. It was a
terrific disappointment to 'us but
we're glad! to hear that the B. &
G. apparatus is O. K.

I Eitorial Comment

Amy Loomis
The directors of the destiny of
the Women's League Building have
announced that Amy Loomis will
manage the model theatre that has
been built in the new structure.
This brings back zo Michigan a
colorful and charming personality
and establishes authority in a
young lady who was so prominent
during her undergraduate days
that she has come to stand out as
a landmark in campus dramatics.
Miss Loomis has her home in
Grand Rapids. Coming to Michi-
gan she graduated with the class o
'22. The bright light in her under-
graduate career was the invitation
to inaugurate a long line of wom-
en's roles° played by women in
Mimes. Those were the days when
men were men, and so were Mimes.
In the extravaganzas Mimes pro-
duced, the female parts were car-
ried by various suitable males that
were found in 'the membership.

surpassed the bizarrities the Opera


(From The Baltimore Sun.)
One of the fraternities at the
University of Virginia has refused
to adopt the 'rule, suggested by the
university 'authorities, forbidding
the drinking or storage of alcoholic
liquors inr fraternity houses. This
is a matter of internal administra-
tion on which no outsider is quali-
fied to pass an opinion; but the let-
ter to the dean in which the refusal
is announced raises certain points
of general interest, regardless of
their bearing on the policy of the
For example, the fraternity broth-
ers say:
We are in favor of passing no
rule that we do not expect to
enforce to the best of our abil-
The striking difference between
this sentiment and that prevailing
generally in Congress needs no
comment. The collegians continue:
Passage of a rigid rule is like-
wise an hypocrisy, inasmuch as

gives birth to every year. But what
ever the actual facts may be-and
no comparison is possible now-the
more important fact remains, that
Amy Loomis was the first co-ed to
play parts with Mimes, and was
the first of a glittering trio; Amy
Loomis Miller and Phyllis Lough-
ton, who achieved campus stardom
on the °Mimes boards. The play
which was the vehicle for 'this in-
novation was Holman's "Beggar-
man," which Professor 0. J. Camp-
bell had translaited ,from the Dan-
ish for this, occasion-as well as for'
his Doctor's thesis.
Miss Loomis' principle dramatic
achievement, and this in her own,
right, was as the German, Kath-
erine, in Shaw's brilliaint satire on
almost everything under the sun
including British methods of diplo-
macy. "Great atherine" clung; so
in the, popular mind as the ulti-
mate in collaboration between Shaw
and Loomis that it was revived in
1925 with Miss Loomis again in her
favorite role, and played to an en-
thusiastic run.
But graduation took Miss Loomis
to New York for further work in
dramatics, at the American Acad-
emy of Dramatic Arts. A rigorous
study of such tiresome things as'
enunciation, pantomime, dancing
and what not-which recent the-
atrical ccaiven-tion is coming, at
least apparently, to contenmn-
brought';) palliative in the form of
occasional "bits" with professional
companies on Broadway.
Graduation from the Academy
brought an assistantship in the
Speech Department of the Univer-t
1sity. In this capacity she was able
to keep in touch with the dramatic
situation locally, the outstandingj
outcome of this being her appoint-
ment as director of the Junior
Girls' Play for two years. In ad-
dition she directed and acted in
various plays on the campus, ap-
pearing here for the summer sea-
sons of '26 and '27 with the Rock-
ford Players, and playing in Rock-
ford for a season and a halt with
The latest position that has ap-
pealed has been teaching dramatics
at the North Side Day School in4
Winnetka, Ill., from which she,
comes to assume her duties here.
Mrs. W. D. Henderson, Executive
Secretary for the Alumnae Council, I
said in an interview that the duties
which would fall to her lot would
be as many and as varied as the
various producing groups on theI
campus would care to ask of her.
Nominally Miss Loomis is Manager
of the new League Theatre. Act-
ually her services as business man-
ager, director, actress or producer
will be entirely under her own con-
trol and will be offered campus

SOME day you may be' aleaden in our comnunity-the man t
whom everyone turns when strong counsel is wanted. Already you
may be on the road to a broader service-con tributing your timneand
thought to extra-curriculum affairs-editing a paper, managing or
playing on a teali, doing social service work, acting for the dramatic
club. Out of college the same opportunity for public service exists as
in college. Men who are leaders in their business or profession are often
leaders in civic affairs, too.
When you leave college you're going to meet Stone & Webster men.
You'll find them taking an active part in the community-leading
in civic affairs as they lead in their business. You'll find them
managing -transportation companies, operating and financing public
utility companies and building industrial plants. You'll find the
Stone & Webster organization is worth knowing and worth doing
business with. The Stone & Webster training ably fits its men for
public service.
