VICTORY OR DEFEAT?
When the house passed the ad-
ministration farm relief bill by a
majority of 333 to 34, the "export
debenture plan" and the "equali-
zation fee," which was vetoed by
President Coolidge, begin to take
on quite different aspects.
The debenture scheme seems to
be definitely a thing of the past,
unless its proponents in the Sen-
ate can successfully change the
minds of 167 House members, while
a deadlock between the upper and
lower chambers would place all of
the responsibility directly upon the
shoulders of its supporters.
Instead of remaining a party is-
sue, then, the conflict would be-
come one of personalities and indi-
vidual wills, which might (as is not
unknown) lead to actual blows.
The jobs of the Congressmen are
at stake. Thus, more personal in-
terest enters into the controversy
and out of this snarled and tan-
gled web, the gentlemen would
bring forth some ultra-palliative
machine. It is one thing to hold
a special session, pass a bill, then
to have it vetoed by the President,
while it is a horse of another color
to hold a special session and ac-
complish nothing.
THE SMOKE CLEARS
The "nonchalant" cigarette with
its recent invasion of society is due
to meet a very great check if pres-
ent opposition to its recent adver-
tising campaign accumulates to
anything formidable.
The Federal Radio commission
has decided that misleading adver-
tising broadcast by radio, is valid
ground for considering whether
the license of sending stations
shall be cancelled or renewed. If
the commission has not the power
to make an announcer state that
advertising consisting of paid tes-
timonials is such and not the un-
solicited opinion of the eminent
people testifying, then the only
way to protect the public from mis-
leading advertising is to cancel
the license of the offending sta-
tion.
But the attack on cigarette ad-
vertising has been started still
nearer home in that the Lennon
bill, passed by the senate but re-
jected in the house of the state
legislature, proposed to place a
two-cent tax per package on cigar-
ettes.
If the resolution accomplishes
nothing other than the cutting off
of prominent athletes from a
source of revenue it will be of no
avail. However, if misleading ad-
vertising that subverts public opin-
ion surreptitiously, is eliminated
through these attacks, then what's
acceptable according to custom
will be the product of sound rea-
son and not the by-product of the
search for the dollar.

ANOTHER YOUNG PRESIDENT
Perhaps, recognizing the need for
the vigor of youth in an adminis-
trative position through which an
expenditure of several millions of
dollars will be made during the
next few years, the Board of the
University of Chicago has appoint-
ed Dr. Robert Maynard Hutchins,
30-year-old dean of the Yale Law
School, to take the office of Pres-
ident of the great institution under
their control. The action may be
looked upon as another example of
the recent tendency to depend on
youth for efficient administration,

Bells of Oseny demands a sympa-
thetic rendition which one felt was
rather neglected, the quality of
peace and content were overstress-
ed and the undercurrent of solemn-
ity suffered accordingly. In the
very well known, I Have a Ren-
dezvous With Death the dramatic
quality which is sought by bari-
tones was first felt, the rapid
change in tempo, in emotional
quality, in tone depth-all aided
the impressionism; when at last his
full volume was alowed free range
the effect was complete. The emo-
tions of war in tone are not easy
to attain.
At the end of this section of the
program there was an impression
evident that the singer was one
of those nice students who wasn't
quite sure of himself 'and who was
undoubtedly imitating some well
known artist's style. On the pro-
gram, however a single word fore-
told something quite out ofp the or-
dinary in store. The composition
taken from Heine's Lyrisches In-
termezzo has been presented twice
in Ann Arbor in recent years and
in both instances with considerable
acclaim. It has a reputation for be-
ing a very learned and advanced
work in the field of the romantic
lyric. Its place on any program
demands respect.
The final number was easily the
most scholarly and ambitious of
the lot. Schumann's great cycle
Dichterliebe. It is composed of
emotional lyrics in German all
strung upon the theme of a single
hopeless passion; there are six-
teen, each the expression of a
mood: sadness, longing, rapture of
worship, of sense and despair.
Even anger completes the emotion-
al gamut, they are all inter-related
and dependent upon logical se-
quence. Here the dramatic possi-
bilities gave the artist his chance.
The first two lyrics were given a
quality of pleading which was too
intense for him to maintain-the
entity of the cycle suffered from
this too zealous attempt. But these
two were the high point of the con-
cert. The subtlties of emotional
rendition in both control and in ar-
tistry were very well carried, in the
second it was nearly overdone.
When one can express the turbu-
lent emotions of a heartbroken
young lover in his attempt to show
the assumed mockery he has for
his old love one is at least getting
on. With a few exceptions the in-
termediate lyrics were ordinary in
scope. Then in the climax it soar-
ed back to an approximation of the
former emotional intensity.
Culkin has that rare combination
of a powerful and well- modulated
voice and the artistry to subdue it
as a medium instead of an entity.
In other words he is an artist in-
stead of a showman; there is some-
thing mystic and youthful in the
way he admits the audience into
the full intimacy of, his romantic-
ism He is not a finished product
by any means;. there is much lack-
ing in tone quality, his intermezzo
and upper register range has not
attained a full consideration, he
overemphasizes little dramatic
tricks. But he is an artist, and
profound emotions have a way of
developing their media. The mel-
lowness which vocal maturation at-
tains will bring him his chance for
recognition.

NOTE FROM W. C. T. U.- f
Lark:
I know not what your taste in
sports may be, but I should like
your help, if you deem it advisable
((The custome4/ is always right)),
for the sake of good old baseball.
There is no better place for the
feminine element to prove her
equality to the male than at a
baseball game-to show her recov-
ery from her natural brainless state
(Benjamin Franklin's Saturday
Post published on Thursday) by
refraining from nose powdering
and lip rougeing. The majority of
girls seem to have no confidence
in their natural complexion, and
are constantly advertising the fact
by a tedious -fussing over the van- I
ity case ((she really means "via"
or "by means of")). I often won-
der why those girls come to the
games ((we know-send self-ad-
dressed, stamped envelope for rea-
son why)). Please don't misunder-
stand me-I adore good-looking
girls ((we don't!)), but a baseball
game is no tea party ((little ram-
bles with serious thinkers)).
Well, Lark, let's hope for some
good hot baseball this spring-
thanks for the forty seconds.

Because.... I am a girl.
It seems that a certain head of
a certain rhetoric department in a
certain university told the mildew-
ed joke about the little boy who
had to stay after school and write
"I have gone" one hundred times
on the black board at a meeting
of the schoolmasters' convention,
and wonder'ed why no one laughed.
