Continuing the traditional good
eeling between the two universi-
es, the University of Michigan
relcomes the University of Wis-
onsn representatives to Ann Ar-
or. The two schools will again
mew a rivalry which dates back
$ years. It is a rivalry which has
ot been marred by serious un-
award incident and which is cher-
hed by both schools. The people
n the stands today may expect as
ard-fought a contest as those in
he past, and can rest assured that
'hichever side wins, the victory
'ill be deserved. Athletic relations
etwen the two schools have now
:ntinued too long to be broken by
petty happening, and with mem-
ries of great battles between the
wo universities, and the clean
portsmanship of both, the game is
igerly awaited.
Last night a great Michigan pep
ieeting pledged anew its confi-
ence in the Michigan Varsity. And
his afternoon as the Red of Wis-
onsin and the Blue of Michigan
ne up for the opening kickoff,
hey will be greeted by the cheers
f a crowd of 70,000 football en-
Michigan is host today .not only
) Wisconsin but to thousands of
lumni and friends of the Univer-
ty, back for the first really im-
ortant week-end of the football
ason. It is to be sincerely hoped
nd expected that she will fill that
ost to the fullest.
From the brilliant Maize and
lue cheering section, formed for
le first time this year, to the
iwliest freshman seated behind
le goa lposts, Michigan should dis-
lay in no uncertain terms that
le can stand behind a losing team
s well as a winning one.
Michigan knows that every effort
ithin the reach of members of
great university will be extended
her behalf during the afternoon.
he knows that her team will play
clean game, fighting hard.
And she knows that as the final
histle blows, she will have no oc-
Dsion to apologize for her Var-
ty, in victory or defeat.
News of today as expressed by
e press will be the history of to-
orrow. In c.nsideration of this
ct, the following of current events
t only makes for interesting di-
rsion but also forms a phase of ;

an entirely undeserved lack of in-
terest in these contests. Of the
total number of students who have,
entered, only a few have consis-
tently read the daily nawspapers.
And of those who do keep up with
the news, fewer still seem to have
really assimilated what they read.
The cause for this disinterested-
ness on the part of the students
may arise from the fact that they
have to devote too much time to
their studies.
Yet, for the most part, students
devote their time not to studies-
nor even to quasi-educational pur-
suits, but more often to social
pleasures. If students attending
such a large university have
neither the time nor the inclina-
tion to follow the events of the
world of such vital importance to
their nation, there is something
most decidedly amiss in the sys-
tem of modern education.
The Badgers are coming here
with blood in their eyes. May the
Wolverines give them the most,
soothing lotion to cure that ill!
To Herbert Hoover, who points
with pride to prohibition as a
"great and noble experiment,". we
submit that every student on this
campus drinks more now than he
did before prohibition.
Add an eighth to the wonders of
the world: The vote on the pro-
posed Union constitutional amend-
ment went through without a'
single recount.
A sad state of affairs really will
exist if Wisconsin attempts to
avenge that whole string of defeats
in one game.
According to Will Rogers, Hoov-
er s idea of farm relief is to relieve
the farmers of all they have. Then
they will no longer need relief, but
only interment.
Professor Lorch pointed out the
other day that women do not make
good architects. This statement,
however, does not necessarily deny
the converse, to wit: good archi-'
tects make women.
ICampus Opinion
Contributors are asked to be brief,
confining themselves to less than 300
words it possible. Anonymous com-
munications will be disregarded. The
names of communicants will, however,
be regarded as confidential, upon re-
quest. Letters published should not be
construed as expressing the editorial
opinion of the Daily.
To the Editor:
It is rather refreshing after all
the slush finding its way into this
august column apropos Politics,
Rum, and Federal Agents to find a
communication that really has a
thought in it. I refer to G. L. R.'s
letter on Student Morals, especial-
ly his last paragraph wherein he
asks why our worthy school has
no medium for the expression of
student thought (if such there be).
I too, would like, to raise the
query: why at our "glorious Mich-
igan" is there no journal of
thought? Here is really a deplor-
able condition that should furnish
our campus indignants with more
food for thought than all the rum
Detroit bootleggers can make for
us, or all the Federal Agents Wash-
ington can send. In the way of
publications, what have we ? Our
Daily, with all virtues (which,
perhaps, are not so numerous) is
neither a thought provoking organ
nor an instrument for the expres-
sion of thought.
The Gargoyle serves .its purpose
only too well and deserves its own

glory. Then, of course (with em-
phasis), there is the literary (un-
fortunately literary) Inlander. Now
I really do not mean to ridicule the
Inlander too much because it is
performing a real function on this
campus. But if its editors and the
rhetoric department will allow me
the privilege, I must add that the
Inlander smells altogether too
much of Gopher Pararie's Ladies'
Literary club which always insists
on genteel art (good art never of-
fends) properly devoid of all stim-
ulating thought.
As far back as last semester, I
was told by one who had the right
and power to speak with authority,
that the "powers that be" were
fully cognizant of this atrocious
situation and would by all means
seek to remedy it this year by the
establishment of a new member to
the publication family. Our erst-
while friend of former years,
Chimes, was at its best a sorry af-
fair, but even that was better than
nothing. I suppose to face the sit-
uation realistically we must grant
that should the University see fit
to establish such a journal it will
be at best a hybrid crossbetween
the Daily and the Inlander. Yet
even this must not make us despair.
Such a magazine would serve a
good purpose even if only to supply
Rolls with new fuel for its fire for
which it at times has sore need.
So as one of those to whom
thinking is not a painfully neces-
sary evil, but rather a "glorious

Music And Drama
A staccato biography of Frank
Wilson, the Negro actor who plays-
the leading role in The Theater
Guild's production of "Porgy,"4
Tuesday matinee and evening at4
the Whitney, reveals that he is still
listed among the mail carriers of
New York City. He has taken a
vacation from the Postal ServiceI
to play in "Porgy"; now his suc-
cess as an actor-he has previouslyt
appeared in "In Abraham's Bosom"'
makes one wonder if he will ever
return to the toting of letters and
Wilson was born in New York in
1885 and was left an orphan early'
in life. He went to work as a door-
boy at the Hotel Schuyler and
when 15 rolled about, he took up a
night course, for-his education had
been neglected. About this time heq
discovered that he had a 'yen' for
the theatre. To give it expression<
he organized a quartet of singers
and they played cheap vaudeville.
Not only vaudeville, but museums
and other haphazard places of en-
tertainment. This lyric enterprise
netted each singer some $15 week-
ly. But Wilson quit this work ande

Frank Wilson

took the Postal examination, which
started hi m as a mail-carrier. His
route was the famous Strivers'
Row, that parade of handsome
houses designed by the late Stan-
ford White which stands on 130th
street in New York, between
Seventh and Eighth Avenues. It is
the most exclusive block in Harlem.
Wilson has written many one-
act plays. That some of them have
distinct quality is indicated by
their inclusion in a recent Harper
publication, "An Anthology of
Negro Plays and Playlets," edited
by Alain Locke. His play "Meek
Mose," was recently produced at
the Princess Theatre, New York.
Another play of his writing, "Sugar
Cain," is listed for production next
season. Many of his playlets, most
of them dealing with racial
themes, have been produced at the
Lafayette Theater, a playhouse de-
voted to colored people and located
in Harlem.
The success of his sketches may
have awakened in Wilson the urge
for a greater degree of effort. At
any rate he enrolled in a subsidiary
group of the American Academy of
Dramatic Art under the late Frank-
lin Sargent. This was in 1927. So,
after delivering mail in the day-
time, he pursued his theatrical work
at night. He acted in Butler
Davenport's company in the Bram-
hall Playhouse, playing a small role
in their production of John Gals-
worthy's, "Justice." In "All God's
Chillun Got Wings," produced at
the Provincetown Playhouse, he
had a small part. Then he. sup-
ported both Paul Roveson and
Charles Gilpin in revivals of "The
Emperor Jones." He also appeared
in a revival of "The Dreamy Kid";
wrote his "Sugar Cain" play, and
then went into "In Abraham's
Bosom," where he had a small part
and was understudy for the leading
player, Julius Bledsoe. One eve-
ning Bledsoe had a falling out
with the management and did not
appear for his part. This was after
the play had achieved some suc-
cess, had won the Pulitzer Prize
and was brought uptown to the
Garrick Theatre for an extended
run. Wilson, as understudy, went
on that evening. He achieved re-
markable success and luckily for
director of the Theatre Guild was
in the audience. Sheawas impressed
by his work and still further im-
pressed by his modesty when, at
the end of the play, the curtain
kept going up and coming down in
his honor-he had plainly made a
hit. Mr. Bledsoe was not asked to
return to his part; Mr. Wilson con-
tinued in it and went from that





.f .once said: "I wish to
preach not the doctrine of
- ignoble ease, but that of a
strenuous life."


THAT the late president, whose 70th birthday anniversary the nation
observes today, practiced what he preached is a matter of history.
He was an inspiring example of what indomitable Will Power can do.
Follow it. Determine Financial Independence shall be yours and don't
let up until you've attained it!
