Although the electoral college
will not assemble for a few months,
the fact has already become ap-
parent that Herbert Hoover will be
the next President of the United
States. The most rabid Smith sup-
porter will concede that. ,
In an election that was general-
ly conceded to him even before
election day, the former Secretary
of Commerce developed unexpected
strength and the latest returns
show that he will have more than
440 electoral votes, surpassing the
margins of Harding and Coolidge.
The crowning blow to Al Smith's
hopes came when he lost his own
state of New York and the 45 votes
therein. The Solid South, so long
a Democratic stronghold that Re-
publicans paid little attention to it,
broke for the first time since 1860,
and gave a part of its votes to
Smith and his men appeared
confident even when the betting

odds swung to his opponent and
the late information came into
headquarters. Smith was a man who
had the backing of the largest state
in the Union and who had been a
successful candidate many times.
Opposed to him was a man who
had never before faced the voters,
a man who had never been a can-
didate for public office. The re-
sulting vote, a crushing landslide,
was a tribute to the Republican
party: for its government of the
past administrations but most of
all for its candidate, Hoover.
Hoover's record was by far the
more outstanding. His record be-
fore the war as engineering expert,
his record as food administrator,
and his post-war record as Com-
merce secretary in the cabinets of
Harding and Coolidge gave him a
command over national affairs
Smith could not hope to equal.
Smith made a splendid record in
governing New York, but at a cru-
cial time in foreign affairs, he
asked, "The Platt Amendment?
Never heard of it!"
Hoover was too good a man to
leave national affairs. The Amer-
ican public realised this, and con-
firmed it Tuesday. Certainly, a

plish more. His record shines.
The American people have left
no doubt as to whom they want as
their President. His name is Her-
bert Hoover.
A few weeks ago there was great
uproar hereabouts concerning the
proposed federal liquor investiga-
tion. The uproar was largely
caused by those individuals who
thought of federal officers as a
gang of thugs who would raid fra-
ternity parties, break down' fra-:
ternity front doors with axes, and
arrest innocent college girls. Then
the matter blew over and the up-
roar subsided.
But since that time things hive;
been happening which the Univer-
sity campus deserves to know, and
the first of these things is that
the plan for a federal investigation
has not been abandoned. It is
reasonably certain, on the other
hand, that the federal investiga-
tion, when it is instituted, will not
comprise raids and rioting, but will
be a calm, deliberate, and unevent-
ful affair. It will be a survey very
like a survey by University officials
themselves would be.
The very nature of such an in-
vestigation, however, precludes thea
possibility of any publicity while
it is in progress. The campus can
not expect that the arrival of the
federal men will be heralded by
trumpets, and that a campus Paul
Revere will be appointed to ride
ahead and warn all students to
throw away their liquor. The suc-
cess of the investigation in estab-
lishing the true conditions at Mich-
igan depends on utter secrecy while
the survey is in progress, and the
fraternities can not expect warn-
That the federal men may arrive
any time need not be a subject of
apprehension, if it is true, for their
purpose will be only to discover the
actual situation and not to take
immediate action. It is up to the
student body so to deport itself
that action will never be necessary.
Less than eight months ago, the
Michigan campus read that, the
faculty of the Medical school had
voted to inaugurate a general ex-
amination at the end of the four
year course. This move came at a
time when local interest was for
the most part centered about the
University college.

Music And Drama
In accordance with our policy of
"policing the highway of Art" we
are compelled to call attention to
the iconoclastic way in which i
E. D. P., a high school teacher, who
presented sentiments of some value
in the Campus Opinion yesterday,
mistreats the English language.
The particular words in question
are "pedagouge," to indicate a
teacher, and "asperions," to signi-
fy some form of uncomplimentary
An occasional mis-spelling sug-
gests laxity among the sophomore
"devils" who read proof in "the
Hole," but repetition of the error
implies quite frankly an ulterior
motive on the author's part. If we
are to give E. D. P. credit for such
motives we must admit a certain
amount of novelty in the coinage of
"pedagouge" to mean teacher.
Gouge is a very colorful word. It
suggests digging things out with
a blunt instrument-perhaps
knowledge, or something similar.
It also suggests the "shyster" type
of person. A gouger is no gentle-
man. A tyro at philology might
find still another interpretation,
involving the translation of ped-
agouge (peda-foot, gouge- to dig
or injure) to mean one who uses
his feet with malice aforethought.
In any case, a pedagouge according
to. the new interpretation is one
whom one would not care to in-
troduce to his mother.
But in the case of asperions we
confess ourselves stumped. It is
too euphonious to be nasty, too
novel to permit examination. To
us personally it recalls Hypatia, the
lovely mistress of valorous Romans,
so we can only congratulate E. D. P.
for courage and originality when,
faced by the English language-
while at the same time murmuring
a fervent prayer for the very-
younger generation who still have
etymological adventures in high
school ahead of them.

About Books

P" I .11


One finds it hard to realize that:
Max Beerbohm is still alive and
that a new book has recently come
from him. For he is the lone emi-
nent survivor of the late Victorian
age: a man who combined his ac-
quaintanceship with such worthies
as Austin Dobson and others of the
genial and austere school with
friendships and working experi-
ences with Aubrey Beardsley, Oscar
Wilde and others of the fiery school.
But one finds it more easy to un-
derstand the survival of this
man when one penetrates the sur-
face of his works. In his latest,
"A Variety of Things,"* one finds
little that is antedated olr stodgy in
viewpoint, and much that is fascin-
ating, and fresh, and lasting.
Beerbohm is essentially of the I
genial school-those good writers
who have more enjoyment and ac-
complish more by making guarded
fun of people and institutions than,
they could get by throwing a
thousand bricks in the Mencken
manner. The books are never to
be read on street-cars, or in the
few minutes before dinner. One
should settlesdown before a grate
fire to toast one's shins-have
smokings and apple near at hand
-and then one can revel in the
play of this man's mind and fancy.j
In this new book there are twoi
essays that especially commend
themselves to the reader. "The
Spirit of Caricature" is a defense
of that art which has found little
foothold in England and less in the
United States. Just now, through
the machinations of those two
clever Mexicans, Covarrubias and
Hidalgo, we are coming in this
country to appreciate the things
which Beerbohm here sets down in
his inimitable manner of apology.
"Not That I would Boast" is an-
other which is in the matchlessl
style of this master of the essay.
Dealing wholly in personalities it
makes a moving picture which is
invested with all that makes the in-
timate essay the most charming
and the most restful form of litera-
ture. These two represent the
spirit of the book-essays set down
by a, gentleman and a genial wit.
"A Variety of Things" should be
in the library of every person who
likes good writing, an inimitable
style, and the constant flash and
sparkle of a genuine and fascinat-
ing personality, the like of which
we produce too rarely in these
journalistic and hyper-sexual days.

York. $3.00.

Detroit SmhoyOrchestra
will give two concerts in
Hill Auditorium. Monday, November 12

It was, spoken of at the time as
one of the most singular strides inI
the field of education recently ac-a
complished upon this campus; and+
looked upon from the view of theI
very important functions which the
doctor must perform in relation to
human life, it seemed to be an im-
portant step in the development
of professional education.
As the Medical school has recog-
nized the genuine need for compre-
hensive preparation as a prerequi-
site for the practice of medicine
and has sought to supply that pre-
paration, it has also recognized
that it is easily possible for men,
who either by interests or abilities
are not fitted for the practice of
medicine, to enter the school and7
spend a great deal of time need-
lessly in the pursuit of studies for
which they will have no later use.+
Together with this realization,
the Medical school has found it
necessary for some time now to
limit its enrollment. Admission to
the school has thus become a semi-}
competitive matter. As a means
towards insuring the Medical
school that it will receive only thel
most qualified of its applicants, the+
Board of Regents have approved
the appointment of a Counsellor of
Premedical students. At the re-
quest of Dean Cabot of the Medi-
cal school, Mr. Harvey Emery has
been appointed to the post.
It will be his task to meet with
each premedical student, discuss
his individual problems, and try
to assist in their solution. He is
to be in touch with the various
facultes concerned and to be fam-
iliar with the requirements of the
various Medical schools.
In view of the fact that his office'
may be able to throw light on some]
of the problems of the UniversityI
college when it begins to function
next year, and because of the quite1
evident assistance which a pre-I
medical counsellor should be able
to give to a large number of stu-
dents, the new office may wellc
assume a position of genuine serv-1
ice to the University and its stu-
dent body.c

the love affair of a certain young

of the romantic conventions, they

out of New York there is a train

The Barrymores' great New York
success, "The Jest," by Sem Benelli
is the Detroit Civic Theater presen-
tation for the next two weeks,
having opened Monday night, with
George Blackwood, Craig Ward, and
Miriam Sears in the leading roles,
and Vera Allen and Walter Sher-
win in prominent parts.
This thrilling and challenging
drama is the most famous and
most popular of modern Italian
plays, being first produced in New
York with John and Lionel Barry-
more, and later with Basil Sidney
at the Plymouth Theater, where
it won tremendous applause. Since
its first appearance in Rome in
1909 it has never been out of pro-
duction in Italy, and as a stage
vehicle for Sarah Bernhardt it was
produced with great success in
Paris. The Civic Theater produc-
tion affords an exceptional oppor-
tunity to see the play, which has
never toured in America and which
will not be shown again in Detroit
for a number of years, as it is an
expensive and scenically gorgeous

There is one very decided virtue
in the way that Konrad Bercovici
has handled the sketches in his
new book, "Nights Abroad."* And
that virtue is that he has dealt
more with the people that he saw
and heard about-people hidden
away in the corners of the Contin-
ent who vivified the life and the
ideals of the country-than with
mere incidents of travel and typi-
cal sightseeing. There is much of
the personal, a little of the whim-
sical, and more that is highly in-
triguing in this work.
Bercovici is a master of the fine
art of drawing a picture with
words-colored, swift-moving, fas-
cinating words. His descriptions
sparkle and the narration moves
with never a hitch until the picture
is completed. Real people move in
and out of the sketches, people who
live and move and have their be-
ing in the atmosphere which this
author knows so well and senses
so accurately. There is never a dull
moment'in this book, or a moment
when one says, "I've heard that be-
fore." Here is a man who has
"done" the continent in the style'
of a master and has taken from it
the best that it had to offer-
pleasant contacts and associations
with people and places and things.
"Havana" is a fascinating bit of
a sketch which is almost a short
story and yet retains all of the
color and the personality which
Bercovici has injected into every
line of this book. The girl is the
girl that lived across the alley, the
girl we saw from the tram that
bright fall afternoon, the girl at
whom we made eyes throughout
the whole performance of "Porgy."
She is alive, vibrant and individual.
This is indeed a fascinating book
for those who like the unusual the
