THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1928
Night Editor-Pierce Rosenberg

ing the week, there was too much
unnecessary addressing of the
class of '32. A few speakers, well-
chosen, can accomplish much more
than a large number of mediocre
ones. The speeches by the more
important notables last week were
of high standard and well-re-
ceived, but the addition of less im-
portant Speakers with nothing to
say hurt ,the general effect. The
examinations, it must be admitted,
could have been given at 9 o'clock1
as well as 8 o'clock. Other needed!
changes were discussed by fresh-
men, upperclassmen, and faculty
alike; and while the week next'
year may not be radically changed,
there may be some needed im-
provements.
There were many things to ap-
plaud. The athletic contests were
very successful and were enthusi-
astically supported. The Union
smoker was a pronounced success.
The assembly, Thursday night,
brought forth much favorable
comment. The general coopera-
tion of fraternities and advisors
tended to make the works run
smoothly. The attitude of the
freshmen was fine, only a very few
marring the week. Examinations
were taken seriously, the new stu-
dents took advantage of most of
the opportunities offered, and sin-
cere efforts were made by the year-
lings to do their share.
Professor Frayer is already start-
ing plans for the week next year.
Among other things,' he has a
serious problem to face in that
of settling the Sunday program
matter. Local churches resent the
fact that the University plans a
special convocation for the stu-
dents, and voiced their protests
this year, asking that the students
be allowed to go where they
wished. The University gracefully
gave in, but planned a talk on
"The Student's Faith" for those
who wished to come. Forty at-
tended. Some better way will have
to be found. Other problems con-
front Professor Frayer and the
committee. But their second Fresh-
man week was a success, and in-
deed it glows better in the light
that it has had but two years to
shapen. Next year's incoming stu-
dents will probably find many new
and better things to greet them
on the threshold of University life.

MIMES MORE OR LESS

I

I

Announcements appearing about
Opera try-outs suggest that Mimes
is again getting under way with
the task of providing theater en-
tertainment for the Campus. No
official announcement regarding
plans for" the coming season has
been forth coming but if last sea-
son's record is any indication there
should be a number of interesting
bills presented.
Mimes .fulfills on this Campus
the quite unenviable part of edu-
cating movie-minded collegians to
the demands and advantages of in-
telligent theater going. The ex-
tent to Which Mimes carries out
this duty is, of course, debatable as
various articles appearing in this
column will bear witness. But no
one would take issue against the
statement that Mimes, with assist-
ance from Comedy club, is fight-
ing a more or less losing battle
against the palaces of the flat-
drama both locally and in Detroit.
Founded in 1912, Mimes was or-
ganized entirely of amateurs with
the object of producing a student
written show for the amusement
and encouragement of students
and alumni. With the backing of
the Union the annual brain child
has been exhibited under the more
or less camouflaging title of the
Opera. It has invariably made
money. Not so, invariably it has
set precedents. This year's show,
shrowded in as much mystery as
the new Ford car was once, seems
likely to do both. If that happens
every politician in the Union will
rejoice.
Nor will this column weep. But
a sentiment has for some time been
more or less apparent deploring the
fact that the stock company side
of Mimes should devote so much
time to the production of old hits
-and some not such very good
hits as 'that-without giving any
time at all to the not unreasonable
job of providing amateur outlet for
student plays. With its facilities
Mimes could give splendid produc-
tion to a student written play. The
play may not exist which can hold
a local audience but certainly
there is always George M. Cohan
to fall back on in case of a dent
in the box office, and the assur-
ance that Michigan is giving
Princeton and Yale a race in the
Theater Intime field should more
than compensate for the labor in-
volved.
Of course, Mimes works under a
handicap. Without financial en-
dowment, fighting the competition
of play production courses on the
academic side which properly
should be transferred to the prac-
tical, and without the machinery
for co-operation with such play-
writing courses as there are in the
University, it finds its chief duty in
initiating Joe Campus to the the-
ater. And a thankless job that is.
But with the recent developments
on the Rhetoric faculty to assist in
the production of student plays,
the outlook does seem somewhat
more hopeful that Michigan will
achieve" some means of completely
amateur theatrical expression. The
shade of Avery Hopwood would
certainly cheer.

Well, if we don't
pretty soon, we maya

AN EXPLANATION
Yesterday morning an editorial
appeared in these columns criti-
cising.the office. of the dean of
students for the policy of entering
fraternity property to take num-
bers of automobiles operated in
violation of the automobile ban.
It has been explained since that
time that one of the chief rea-
sons for this move is 'the fact
that several fraternities are sus-
pected of having retained cars
here for the purpose of rushing
during the present week, attempt-
ing to evade the ban by late regis-
tration on the part of the car
owners.
The Daily; ,did not mean in any
sense to condone the violators of
the ban who have thus been escap-
ing punishment. This publication
believes, as it has continuously be-
lieved, that modification of the
complete automobile ban' along
sane lines can come only if the
students display sympathy with
rmoderate measures. There was ut-
terly no intention of defending
either individuals or fraternities
which have violated the automo-
bile ruling of the Regents on the
part of The Daily.
FRESHMAN WEEK IN REVIEW

There are approximately 100
seats remaining of the total of
1200 in the Cheering Section. The
block "M" this year is already the
largest in the history of the Un!-
versity and Michigan students
have made a great gain in insur-
ing the perpetuation of the color-
ful letter on a scale larger than
ever before. But they also have
an even greater opportunity in
that by continuing to enroll until
the full allotment of seats is oc-
cupied they will be virtually as-
sured of the largest student cheer-
ing section in the country.
That this may be accomplished
arrangements have been made
such that any student who has
already applied for tickets can by
calling at the office of the Board l
in Control of Athletics in the Ad-
ministration building on Ferry]
field have his tickets changed to
seats in the cheering section. '
Another reason for enrollment
in the cheering section is that
only there can a first or second

Prof. William A. Frayer of the
history department, to whom many
compliments must go for his suc-
cessful direction of the past Fresh-
man Week, is, on the whole, satis-
fied with the way in which the
events went and with the excel-
lent cooperation shown by upper-
classmen, fraternities, and others.
He is sure that the 1928 event was
far better than the first, in 1927,
and that profiting by mistakes,
those in the future may come
nearer to attaining the degree de-
sired by the University.
Criticisms are always outspoken,
and such is the case with the past
week. The new students were in-
clined to grumble at the 8 o'clock
examinations, the long series of
talks, the triteness of the speeches,
and other things. Many of these
grumblings were justified, but if
the incoming students received or
saw nothing more in Freshman
week than those "hardships," they
failedi in finrlinio-the iini1evviinor

year student be assured of good
seats for all the games this fall.
Good seats, and a chance to be
of service to Michigan in helping
her to establish the largest and
most colorful block letter cheering
section in the country should in-
deed be sufficient reasons for urg-
ing any student to enter the sec-
tion.
The Republicans seem to have
only one rival in this corruption
business-Tammany.

GISH IN THE LEGIT

mastar of worldwide fame has de-

it is expected she will create a sen-
sation.

play, is awittysophisticated comedy
of the revolt of youth written by
Samson Raphaelson, the author of
"The Jazz Singer." In it Miss Gish
has a rare opportunity to display
her interesting personality and
gleaming through the flesh and
blood contacts of the speaking
stage and she promises to be even
more alluring than in her screen
triumphs "Orphans of the Storm"
and "Nell Gwyn."
Sharing honors with Miss Gish
is James Rennie, star of "The Great
Gatsby," and "Crime" and her own
husband, as leading man. The
supporting company has been pick-
ed from the best of Broadway ac-
tors, the play being staged by
George Cukor and presented by
Kenneth Macgowan and Sidney
Ross.
