In a current issue of "The Na-
tion" is an article entitled "College
Morality" which says, in part:
"But the sex problem is by no
means the most serious problem
in our college life; the outstanding
sin is the undergraduates' absorp-
tion in triviality. Practically every
college in America has its under-
graduates/ overorganized in a hun-
dred varieties of 'student activity'
which assume a higher place in the
estination of !the students than
class room distinction. In most
colleges thought outside the class
room is positivelyunpopular. Only
the 'radicals' and a few isolated,
brilliant students enjoy the give
and take of fundamental conver-
sation. 'You might as well be at
a summer resort,' said one student
in describing his college."
Being acquainted with but one
university, I should not feel justi-
fied irn making such an inclusive
generalization as the above; but
insofar as that one university is
concerned, I could easily appear
infinitely more gloomy and pessi-
mistic and at the same time slight
not a whit my fairly evenly-tem-
pered optimism. I speak, of course,
of Michigan.
The student naturally has his
handicaps, which might be classi-
fied thus:

Ode On Intimations Of Fertility
Here, where the air is laden
With putrifactive breath,
Strange odours-not of Aiden-
(Aromas born of Death)
Lurk while the campus dozes.
Strange odours; not of roses
But stifling halitoses,
Where feotor conquereth!
And here, with pain'd expression,
Maids tread with noses high;
And mighty males no less shun
These perfumes of the sky.
Here is a smell of spring, or
Some imitative thing! . . . er

But hastens, breathless, by!

Music And Drama
Play production announces that
the first complete bill of a series
to be presented this year in the
forms of Rachel Crothers', "The
Little Journey," which will be pre-
sented in University Hall auditor-
ium the evenings of November 8,
and 9.
The Crothers opus is a three-act
comedy which, when produced in
1918 at the Vanderbilt theatre in
New York, turned out to be a not-
able success and maintained its
author's reputation for sincere and
amusing dramatic writing. Other
hits, which have furthered this
reputation, are "Mary the Third,"
and "Old Lady 31." The cast is
rather large, numbering 18 speak-
ing parts.
Admission to the production is
by invitation only, as is proper in
case of laboratory work, and this
policy will continue for some time
yet until technical problems are
sufficiently mastered for public of-

With an :ncoent, captivating
personality, Fernando Germani,
guest organist yesterday afternoon
for the Twilight organ concert, gave
an impressive though not startling
performance which revealed a
masterful technic and at times an
astonishing interpretative skill.
The opening movements of the
"Concerto .in D Minor" by Vivaldi-
Bach were rather phlegmatically
rendered but the adagio was ex-
quisite, and the allegro was also
well done.
The two Bossi numbers, "Scena
Pastrole" and "Colloquy with the
Swallows" were delicate, rather
beautiful tone gems appreciatively
rendered, but suffered in contrast
with Bach's "Fantasia and Fugue
in G Minor" which was probably
the high spot of the program. Mr.
Germani is not the youthful prod-
igy which pre-press reports would
make him. He is not in fact to be
compared with Palmer Christian,
but he did do this number with
excellent skill, and an intellectual
His own composition, "Gigue,"
was a pleasing, light number whim-
sically played without any pretense
at being a sensation, which was re-.
The Torres number, "Sautas," be-
longing to the modernistic school
was an interesting portrayal of a
cathedral atmosphere, but, like so
~much of the modern tonal music,
it possessed a suspension or rather,
lack of amination in mood which is
at once its chief charm and defect.
"Studio da Concerto" of Manari
revealed to the full the astounding
technic of Mr. Germani. The pedal
passages were nothing short of
marvelously done, considering their
difficulty; and the piece as a whole
was rendered in a masterful fash-
ion which the mere technical diffi-
culty of it did not obscure.

Dalies Frantz played a Brahms
program last night in the School
of Music auditorium, the first con-
cert of the season in this series.

Mr. Frantz returns to Ann Arbor
fresh from performances in several
of the larger musical centers of
A recital restricted to Brahms is
a very hazardous undertaking, even
for the most experienced artist.
The music, for the most part, is
not obvious and if it is to escape
heaviness and thick vagueness it
must be done superlatively well.
Mr. Frantz did not play the music
superlatively well and the results
were at times, frankly boring. His
inadequacy was twofold: technical-
ly, solidity of tone and accuracy of
rhythm was limited to chord and
octave passages, which assuredly
constitutes much of Brahms' music
but by no means all of it; musically,
the artist was very much at home
in more buoyant moods, as in the
opening chords of the F Minor
Sonata, much of the G Minor
Rhapsody, several of the variations!
and especially the fugue in the
Variations and Fugue on a Theme
of Handel, but there is much in
Brahms that is not buoyant and
here the pianist seemed lost. In the
Andante of the sonata, this was
particularly noticeable.
But Mr. Frantz has many valu-
able qualities, more than enough
to make a very exceptional pianist
