ight Editor-GEORGE E. SIMONS
Illinois has cleaned house. After
aonths in the limelight as a cen-
er of graft, crime and politics, I-
nois has sent the Small-Thomp-
on-Crowe machine crashing.
hompson still holds forth and still
as his America-First slogan, but
rowe and Small are definitely out.
Lnd so are most of their political
Chicago crime, Chicago politics,
Ilinos graft, and similar terms
ave become as familiar as "Tai-
iany and Boss Tweed." Cartoons,
.ewspapers, humor publications
ave found much satire and much

rought about in Illinois by that
iachine. It cast a reflection that
rill take years to wipe out.
The Illinois voters should be
roud of the way in which they
isregarded party and placed good
overnment first. Tried and true
iemocrats split ballots and voted
or better men on the Republican
late. Hoover Republicans voted in
everal Democrats who were ap-
arently the best suited. Party
nes broke, and figures show that
ecords were made in the number
f split ballots.
Without the aid of William Hale
hompson, a welll-known patriot-
m expert, the Illinois electorate
as started well on the trail back

hould be regarded as a knell, at*
ast temporarily, for the combine

local audiences, that he has. He is
a master in his line. The School
of Music and other organizations
may hold up their hands in holy
horror. They probably will. But
there are few other organizations
or artists that will be as welcome
and as enjoyed as Paul Whiteman.
Today, the Varsity team is far
from home in an attempt to break
a tradition. Michigan has never
experienced much luck in winning
in the East. Today, with an even
chance of beating the Navy, the re-
juvenated team will try and break
that tradition.
If they were required to receive all
of the incentive from the sendoff
given them at the station Thurs-
day afternoon, they will lose by
three or four touchdowns. That is a
very conservative estimate because
very few waved goodbye. But there
are several students attending the
game and Eastern alumni are ex-
pected to swell the ranks. With a
cheerleader present, there may be
som eincentive for a win, beside the
fact that they wish to show that
the Illinois win was not luck. A
win today would confirm that they
have made a successful comeback.
In spite of its absence at the
sendoff, the entire campus is hop-
ing for a win. Few teams will have
been watched as closely by radio,
gridgraps, and newspaper as
this one today. Sink the Navy!
And how about meeting that
team when it returns Sunday?

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. etters published should nut be
construed as exressing the editorial
opinion of the Daily.
To the Editor:
You are quite right that I mis-
quoted you about the "18 years"
which should have been "18 hours."
Curiously enough, several of my
friends misread it too, and asked
me who it was that had been 18
years in the department. I am
very glad, indeed, that I was wrong.
Taking it, as I read it, I was greatly
distressed by it. I beg your pardon
for the misrepresentation and
thank you for calling my attention
to the truth.

To the Editor:
I've held in till I'm about to bust,
and I'm going to take a few short
rib smashers at somebody, even if
they don't get in the Campus
Opinion Column. Here goes!
The night editor of The Daily on
election night, pulled one of the
most narrow, most assinine (what-
ever that is), most prejudiced
pieces of journalism that I have
had the displeasure of witnessing
in many days of newspaper work.
I am, at heart a newspaper man,
and as such have followed the
most glorious game for several
years, and as such, hope to con-
tinue for several more years.
"HOOVER W I N S!""-"Captures
New York"-"Crushing Majority in
Central States Guarantees Victory."
Those were the headlines of The
Daily of November 7. That, so far,
was good journalism. It was what

might be expected, but immediate-
ly under this he made The Daily
the joke of all jokes, the laughing
stock of not only our own campus,
but of every school and individual
who sees your paper in and out of
the state. A three column cut of
Al Smith under the caption of
"Happy Warrior Vanquished" with
"Glorious in Defeat" as the catch,
lines under the cut followed by a
three column fudge broadcasting
the merits of the defeated man-
comparing him to Jefferson, Lin-
coln and other great men-well, I
looked down in a 'buried' hole and
found a cut of Hoover in all it's
pathetic one column glory, and I
nearly busted.
It is of no consequence whether'
I was a Hoover or Smith man dur-
ing the campaign. That is over,
and Hoover has been chosen by the
people of America to lead for the
next four years, so the matter is
settled-from that standpoint. The
editor, the managing editor, the
business manager and every think-
ing member of The Daily staff are
all ashamed of this breach of the
most sacred code to a newspaper
man-that of allowing an apparent
personal prejudice to sway the

Professor Jerry Hoag, who has
been intimately connected with the
University ever since the bigger
and better Michigan was in the
process of construction, declared
yesterday that he was heartily in
favor of Professor Van Tyne's stu-
dent investigation of the faculty.
"I, personally, have nothing to
fear," he is quoted as saying, "for
my courses in contemporary
cinema are among the most popu-
lar in the University's curriculm.
"Take, for instance, my two eve-
ning sections in 163, an advanced
course for juniors and seniors
with or without 56 hours of credit
in the literary college. The two
required hour-and-a-half lab per-.
iods a week are always so well at-
tended that I have had to give up
taking roll.
"As a matter of fact there have
been times when students regularly
enrolled in the class have been
turned away at the door for want
of standing room. I sometimes
suspect that fraternity men send
freshmen down to occupy their
regular seats.
"I think that other members of
the faculty who are trying to
stick around here on the strength
of their Scholarship, would do well
to come around to my classes once
in a while and take a few tips
from me.
"For instance, iiix un the hu-
morous lectures with the serious
ones, and just when my students
are laughing at one of my peren-
nial jokes I slip over some serious,
scholarly points about the evils of
drink and the power of love.
"I am also a disciple of advanced
principles in education, and be-
lieve in using a good many slides
and moton-picture reels. The
contention of my school of teach-
ing methods that students carry
more away from an illustrated class
period seems to have been success-
fully upheld by my experience..
"Keeping the lights low has other
popularizing advantages, too, be-
cause it has the effect of emphasiz-
ing co-education, which I think is
a wonderful thing, and many of
my students respond right in the
class room to my expositions on
the art of making love. This first-
hand experience under the tutelage
of the world's greatest masters of
the art will prove of tremendous
value to my students when they get
out from under the protecting roof
of their alma mater.
"Despite the fact that I don't
give marks and that my course
doesn't count toward a diploma, I
find that many University students
bolt other courses in order to do
extra work with me. On some oc-
casions when the collegiate quest
for knowledge is raised to its high-
est pitch by a Big Ten champion-
ship, I have had to seek the co-
operation of my friend Thomas
O'Brien and his sturdy blue-coats
to keep mobs of students from
rushing my classrooms.
"The only outside reading I re-
quire of my students can be ac-
complished while walking to class,
and for the evening sections it can
only be done when illuminated.
(The reading has to be illuminated,
not the students.)

"In common with the rest of thet
faculty, I have occasional run-ins
with President Little, but I have
adopted the personal conference
method of settling them instead of
writing letters to The Daily. The
president threatened to investigate
me a couple years agowhen some
one got hit by a tear bomb outside
my class room, but we straightened
out the difficulty amicably.
"The President didn't like my
charging fifty cents admittance to
my classes in an attempt to eke out
my miserable pittance from the
University, so I agreed not to col-
lect anything when enough stu-
dents began to look like they
weren't going to pay it anyway.
"I think the faculty owes Pro-
fessor Van Tyne a vote of thanks
for putting this student investiga-
tion on its feet--in really arousing
campus opinion and getting the
local instructors behind the plan.
Somebody who knows the ropes
had to point out to the younger
men on the faculty how tremen-
dously precarious such an investi-
gation would make their jobs, or
they might not have taken any in-
terest in seeing it go through."

The arrival of Vladimir Horo-
witz as piano soloist with the De-
troit Symphony Orchestra presents
one of the most interesting musi-
cal diversions which Ann Arbor:
may find for itself in the course of
a number of years.
The rather unfortunate eventu-
alities incidental to the Ponselle
and Galli-Curci programs, which
seemed bent on destroying the
School of Music ideal of a series
of all-star programs in celebration
of their Semi-Centennial, will sure-!
ly be redeemed Monday night by
the combined efforts of the Detroit
organization and Horowitz.
The Detroit Symphony has al-
ways been a strong favorite with
Ann Arbor audiences. And this is
said in no fulsome way. Local ap-
preciation, no matter how super-
latively exuberant, has always been
sincere-and properly so. Under
the baton of Ossip Gabrilowitsch,
the Symphony has been one of the
hardest working and most carefully
trained in the country. With the
veteran Conductor taking a leave
of absence this year-still to study
music abroad, however-the task of
interpretation falls to the shoulders
of Victor Kolar. By no means a:
neophyte, this pupil has already
proven his ability to control and
draw music from the men under
his baton, and his coming concert
will only present him in greater
confidence in his powers.
Horowitz however, is an unknown
quantity-which is not to say that
his abilities are unknown. He has
drawn almost unanimous critical
approval wherever he has appeared.
But local audiences have the pleas-
ure of anticipating an entirely new
thrill in his music, and the extent
of that excitement is still problem-
Horowitz was born in Kiev, Rus-
sia, twenty-three years ago. His
father was a mining engineer, his
mother was an accomplished
musician. It was she who gave
him his first lessons, at the age of
six. But the role of child prodigy
was, fortunately, denied him. His
parents put their faith in. sane
training, rather than forced devel-
opment. At thirteen, he entered
the Conservatory to study under
Felix Blumenfeld, pupil of Rubin-
stein. Four years and he graduated
with honors. At Kharkov his
uncle, music critic of the town, ar-
ranged his Russian debut. It was
a decided success. From that,
Horowitz toured Russia with im-
mense critical praise on all sides,
until in 1923 he invaded Europe,
again with success, and so came to
this country.
An evidence of the appreciation,
almost idolatry, he claims from the
Russians is to be found in his
success at Petrograd where, in the
season 1922-23, he played 23 con-:
certs to completely sold-out houses
holding three thousand each night,
at a time when the Revolution
stricken people were doing without
the necessaries of life.

Play Production's success with
"The Little Journey" leads one to
wonder if, after all, it wouldn't be
just as well if college students stuck
to the light stuff they can do well
with capable direction. Such 'a
course would certainly not advance
the art of the theater, but then-
local audiences do not seem to care

much about the art of anything
anyhow. The result would certain-
ly be amusing, and splendid box of-
fice, which is by way of being an
art in itself.
Experimental results of the pro-
duction must prove very gratifying
to Director Windt. The Crothers
opus provides mar velous character
parts, and an occasional dramatic
scene to test emotional capacities.
From the critical point of view, the
character results were more satis-
fying than the dramatic. Edna
Mower's characterization of Grand-
ma Bay was the hit of the evening.
Occasionally a strict director might
have hit her oer the head for
breaking up a scene with unneces-
sary business, but then, she could
put it over. The criterion of suc-
cess is success, in the theater, i
paradoxically enough. Granddaugh-
ter Lily was really splendid as the
corn-fed maiden, sister under the
skin to Charles Holden, the hick
who came to town, and who equal-
led her in fidelity of performance,
