from the audience. It is well-
known locally that most of these
are unmeant as real criticism of
matters dramatic, but visiting
vaudeville artists are unaware of
this and take the vulgar greetings
at heart. Thus, the best acts do
not always come to play the
boards here just because of this
unnecessary hullabaloo.
It has been proven time and time
again that the local school child-
ren are far more to blame than the
University students. In their
eagerness to be like big brother,
they overstep the bounds of prop-
riety and wisdom, and make them-
selves nuisances. Not that Uni-
versity students are blameless;
they started the thing and have
not yet finished to add their foolish
noise and childish acts to the en-
The stigma cast upon the Uni-
versity students by the overeager
and overstressed imitations of the
Ann Arbor youth is uncalled for
and a distinct handicap in booking
the better acts for this town.
There are times when some of
the acts should hear from the aud-
ience. Some are frankly terrible
by any standard. On the other
hand, local audiences are never
niggardly with their applause when
it is merited. The latter is forgot-
ten, however, when the former
looms. And it is not the fault of the
group which brings in most of the
money to the box-office. As soon
as the few students, after whom
the high and grade school children
pattern, cease their troublesome
and futile criticisms, the sooner
Ann Arbor and the University resi-
dents will have better entertain-
ment from the vaudeville circuits.
Michigan ranks without question
as one of the largest universities in
the country. Each fall its football
team plays at least five and some-
times six games in Ann Arbor.
Each of these games as well, as the
contests in other cities, are feature
attractions on the athletic sched-
ule of Michigan's opponents. Every
visiting team that plays in the
Michigan stadium comes backed by
a host of well wishers. Always
there is numbered among this
group at least one cheer leader and
it is not uncommon to see from
three to five such in the opposing
ranks. And it is /indeed seldom
when a Michigan opponent fails to
bring its band to Ann Arbor.
In addition to the games which
the Varsity plays here, there are
always two and usually three grid-
iron contests played in other stad-
iums. These games are always of
the first rank and draw the largest
attendances that the seating ca-
pacity of those stadiums will allow.

Music And Drama
By Paul L. Adams
With an artistry of voice, per-
sonality, and acting which it is
seldom the privilege of an Ann Ar-
bor audience to hear, Rosa Ponselle
breezed her way into the hearts
of music lovers last night in a con-
cert which will be memorable as
one of the high lights of the sea-
The arias from "Cavatina" and
"Carmen" were undoubtedly the
climax of the program, exhibiting,
as they did, the range, power, and
voice control which she possesses,
and which, linked with her power
to give her listeners the mood of
what she is doing by her dramatic
ability, are artistry of the highest
type. Miss Ponselle's voice is one
of exceptional power and range,
and, as if bent upon showing this,
the followed a splendid rendition
of "Cavatina" with the famous
"Habanera," written for a con-
Miss Ponselle's opening aria was
well calculated to win her listen-
ers, and make them forget the
slight air of staginess with which
she entered. It combined an ex-
quisiteness of interpretation with a
voice even in the lower registers
where one cannot help but feel
that a slight throatiness in the ton-
al quality is an added charm rather
than defect.
The only disappointing feature
of the evening was the piano
groups by Mr. Ross. His work as
an accompanist is praiseworthy,
but he is not a successful perfor-
mer alone. His numbers were all
transcriptions with one exception,
and his execution was hardly in-
Miss Ponselle's last group held a
surprise element in her pianissimo
singing which was well done, and
unusual for one with her robust-
ness of voice. Her singing of "In-
vocation to Eros" showed what an
artist can do with a mediocre

By Bert Askwith
In his rather rabid and excitable
discourse 'on the Vitaphone and
motion pictures in general in
Tuesday's Daily, Mr. Hempstead
seems to have been carried away
by the relentless fervor of his en-
ergetic crusade, or rather tirade,
against a talking screen. Not con-
tent with denouncing all film pro-
ducers as illiterate ex-pants re-
pairers, he even attacks the men-
tal capacities of we patrons of
Baron Butterfield.
In addition Mr. Hemstead con-
siders himself the discoverer of the
one and only way to reap mone-
tary harvest in the movie industry
-namely, by eliminating every
trace of mental stimulation from
films in order to prevent the fatal
"celebral activity" by the "open-
mouthed patrons of the front rows
of our movie emporiums."' Un-
doubtedly he refuses to recognize
the fact that "The Way of All
Flesh (an M. Zukor production
incidentally) was one of the big-
gest money-makers the film in-
dustry ever turned out, as was "The
Ten Commandments" (another M.

Zukor production) and "Wings"
(still another M. Zukor production)
and "The Last Command" (also
produced by M. Zukor) and "A Kiss
for Cinderella" (M. Zukor produc-
tion), etc. Whoever states that
such motion pictures as those no-'
ted above (and countless more
could be named) are lacking in ar-
tistic merit is rather befoggled by
a surplus of H20 or' as current col-
loqualism would have it-"all wet."'
As regards to the superiority of
the stage over the screen, it is a
matter of common knowledge that
so much of the current (il) legi-
mate drama is fully of smutty situ-
ations that motion pictures pro-
ducers would never attempt the
filming of big box-office hits like
"The Shanghai Gesture," "Dia-
mond Lil," and others of the same
Of course, all legitimate drama
doesn't consist of bedroom farces.
But neither do all motion pictures
lack artistic merit. There's a per-,
petual niche in the Hall of Worth-
while Entertainment reserved for
legitimate drama, and there's also"
one for the motion picture. And
even regardless of that fact, in this
supposedly tolerant age, there1
should be room for all forms of
decent, clean, and wholesome en--l
tertainment whether it comes, over

To the Editor:
I think the statement in The
Daily's story about the Sunday
morning convocations, published
Oct. 9, does a little injustice to Mr.
Onerdonk, which I am sure you
will wish to correct. Mr. Oner-

The rates quoted are Station-to-Station day rates, effective 4:30 a. m. to 7:00 p. n.
Evening Station-to-Station rates are effective 7:00 p. m. to 8:30 p. m. and Night Station-to-
Station rates, 8:30 p. m. to 4:30 a. m.
A Station-to-Station call is one made to a certain telephone rather than to some person in particular.
If you do not know the number of the distant telephone, give the operator the name and address and
specify that you will talk with "anyone" who answers at the called telephone. %
A Person-to-Person call, because more work is involved, costs more than a Station-to-Station
call. The rate on a Person-to-Person call is the same at all hours.
