have been without foundation, and
rumor hath it that the story origi-
nated in the office of that paper.
IThe story was headed so as to give
the idea that the story originated
in this city, but the fact that it was,
has been denied by the local cor-
respondent of. that paper. Evident-
ly, the news was manufactured on
the basis of occurrences of last
week which shook the campus
from Monday to the week-end. But
that development is too long; the
coaching staff still appears to be
functioning as a unit, Yost is back
and smoking black cigars, and
Wieman is head coach. "Beat
Wisconsin" is the watchword.
The student body is experiencing
an entirely new sensation for it-
self. It is one that has been famil-
iar to students of other schools, but
not to those of Michigan. It has
what is apparently known as a
"losing team." At least it has lost
three games and has yet to win
this season. But Defeat is the test
of Loyalty, and it has done little
to Michigan spirit except to
strengthen support for the Univer-
sity and prove that our teams are
not infallible. The general idea
that Michigan never loses has been
smashed to pieces, and a new con-
ception of loyalty has taken its
place in the student mind.
Perhaps at this time a Michigan
team has never before needed
such stout backing as the present
one does now. The coaching staff
needs to be shown that the stu-
dent opinion is not one of its in-
efficiency but of its inability to find
yet a winning combination from
material which is admittedly below,
standard. The student body has
received a jolt to its idea that "We
always win; why don't you go to
Michigan and support a winning
football team?"
Wisconsin university plays here
next Saturday. Team and coaches
will need something more than de-
termination to win-they will need
encouragement and a different
mental attitude. This can be im-
parted only from the campus. May
the toast be "-to the Teams and
the Coaches."-m

he events of the past three
rdays have been the proving
Ind for the University's foot-
teams, for the student body,
for the coaching staff. In de-
all three have had their met-
tested in a manner in no way

Saturdays is an unheard-of

To the Editor:
At the time my friends and I
grouped together to compose the
article entitled "Immaculate Al"'
we had no idea that our opinion
and sentiment would give rise to
so widespread a furor and panic.
Suffice it to say that these
opinions must have had some ele-
ments of facts in order to strike
home and register in the fashion
that they did. We take great satis-
faction in noting that but one of
all these critics undertook to re-
fute and disprove these statements.
Others merely contented them-
selves with calling them "absurdi-
ties" and thus showing themselves
as shallow thinkers and immature
debaters, leaving meanwhile the
rest of the Campus in the predica-
ment of hearing only one side of
the question.
After much toil and research,
G. C. T., '30 quoted articles and
amendments from the Constitution
which were entirely irrelevant to
the point in question. My state-
ments were grossly misrepresented
by W. J. G., '31. He claimed that I
"abhor" Catholics. As a matter of
fact many of my best friends are
Catholic, and nothing in the article
could be taken in other than the
political sense.. Both the writers
W. J. G. and N. R. N. produced
replies so utterly absurd that they
do not merit further attention.
H. S. H., '29, gives us a truly wel-
come reply, the only one of the
entire series which used clear and
fair-minded refutation.
Those persons who wrote to the
Editor of the Daily criticizing him
for publishing such "rubbish" are
extremely narrow and selfish.
Campus Opinion is open to opinion
of students, free speech being a
prized liberty by most of us; and
those who would attempt to pre-
vent the exercise of that right are
the highest type of bigots. The
rules at the top of the column en-
titled Campus Opinion expressly
state that letters published should
not be construed as expressing edi-
torial opinion. Anyone who disre-
gards this and critizes the Editor

A Review, by Herbert Schwarz
Mme. Galli-Curci presented a
strikingly trivialuprogram at Hill
auditorium last night. If there was
a fortunate absence of discomfort-
ing colaratura it was compensated'
by an altogether too partial indul-
gence in triviality. Mme. Galli-Ctr.-
ci does these unimportant things
very well but one feels the pity of
the choice all the more for that
reason. Her voice is a very re-
markable one, more so for its sen-
sative employment than for any
unusual richness. This sensitive,
unforced quality was, naturally
enough, more complete in the mid-
dle register and the low tones too'
were attacked with admirable ease;
the tones of the highest octave
were not so happy and their diffi-
culty wag'only too apparent. But,
as a purely physical demonstration
the performance was superb and!
whatever criticism is made in this
respect can be of little moment. In
the light of this sensitive response
to the demands of her voice, Mme.
Galli-Curci's uneven respose to the
demands of the music was more ob-
vious than it might have been. At
times one felt that the singer was
a little too careful of her voice, as
in the Cantata by Scarlatti, and
that the notes became a little too
important as notes, which is an-
other way of saying that they were
over-emphasized and lost their sig-
nificance as part of a musical idea.
This is a danger inherent in col-
oratura singing and in virtuosity
in general. It is the artist's dis-
tinction that she did the simpler
songs like Brahm's Sandman, en-
cored after the Scarlatti Cantata,
without any attempt to make them
or rather to remake them for a
coloratura. A pardonable trace of
self-conscious artistry was the only
hint of the demonstration that had
Mme. Galli-Curci was very gen-
eerous with her encores. After the
Adieu Notre Petite Table from
Manon she sang a Serenata by Tos-
ti, then the above-mentioned Sand-
man and, just before the intermis-
sion, La Paloma, with much seek-
ing after hidden beauties brutally
ignored as beauties in folk songs
are wont to be and perhaps should
be. This was followed by two more:
Donnez-vous by Weekerlin and
Petite Jeanneton, an old French
Mr. Samuels, the accompanist,
played three rather inconsequen-
tial pieces after the intermission,
followed by a Reverie by Debussy.
He is altogether too careful to be
an important pianist. One says of
him rather charitably that he may
not have great technique but he
is so musical.
For the rest of her program,
Mme. Galli-Curci chose to sing un-
important English songs and less
important American encores, like
Just a Song'at Twilight and Old

Kentucky Home. The only com-
position of any significance was a
Theme and Variations by Mozart-
Adam. Here the colaratura pas-

should be
