Governor Green's proposal to
.place all state supported colleges
under the supervision of a single
board is certainly worthy of con-
sideration in University circles,
especially now that the people of
Michigan have restored Governor
Green to Lansing for a second
The Governor supports his plan
in brief on the ground that, as at
present constituted, state centers
of education compete with one an-
other, and the taxpayers are
charged for needless duplication.
There is, for example, according to
Governor Green, an expensive dupli-
cation of plant between Michigan
State college and the local School
of Forestry, and between Ypsilanti
State normal and the local School
of Education.
Proponents of the single-board
plan suggests that better coordina-
tion of the colleges would effect
economies and release greater ap-
propriations for buildings and
salary increases. That such would
be desirable is unquestionable. If
the general consensus is that com-
petition and duplication do exist,
this University should be willing to
submerge its autonomy for the wel-
fare of the educational program of
the whole state, and take its chance
with the legislature of securing its
fair share of the increased appro-
priations. A spirit of cooperation
with Governor Green in this mat-
ter might even influence appropri-
ations in our favor, and secure
amends for last year's paring
down of the legislature's Univer-
sity appropriations by the guber-
natorial veto.
Just ten years ago today, the
peoples of the world brought to a
conclusion the most far reaching
and destructive war in history. In
memory of the signing of its
Armistice, the United States and
many of its former allies have seenr
fit to commemorate, nay celebrate,
its anniversary.
The world can well afford to
pause for a few moments this morn-

war, and should, it would seem, be
of sufficient strength to insure the
permanence of world peace. That
they will not, of course, is already
a forgone conclusion. With France
and Italy maintaining great armies
and other nations studying and
devising new means of destroying
mankind, war apparently is not a
thing of the past but a threat of
the future.
Armistice day should not be for-
gotten, however, because of the
failings -of diplomats. It is a day
which the world needs to remem-
ber. That today is Sunday makes
it possible, perhaps, that no cere-
mony of commemoration is neces-
sary. It is more likely that some-
where there has been an unfor-
tunate slip. It need only be hoped
that in another year, not merely
the city of Ann Arbor will feel more
pressingly the need of some cere-
mony of rememberance, but that
the University and its student body
will see fit to commemorate the
The results of six months' inves-
tigation and research under the
auspices of the Lawyer's Club
Foundation, culminating in the
suggestion of revised rules of prac-
tice for the Supreme and Circuit
courts of the state and of a sim-
plified method of appelate pro-
cedure, were submitted to the Su-
preme court last week. The re-
port was made by a commission of
five men, the most active of whom
was Prof. Edson R.:Sunderland of
the Law school.
Such facts, upon their face, are
of relatively little interest to the
majority of a reading public. In-
formation concerning changes in
legal procedure, in fact, is general-
ly looked upon as dry and boresome
subject matter. Fortunately, how-
ever, there are many men who
realizt the importance of steps
which have as their purpose the
simplification and improvement of
court practice and procedure.
While the commission's report
carries as its chief motive the assis-
tance of the Supreme court in fully
eiercising its powers of regulation
over all legal procedure in courts
of the state, it recognizes the gen-
uine need for simplification of
procedure and in taking this step
attempts a worthy contribution to
the legal process.
All too often in'the past has the
judicial procedure of our courts
been the direct cause of unneces-
sary expense and unfortunate com-
plications and restrictions which
have in turn obstructed and often
obscured the purposes of justice.
Even today, It must be recognized,
this evil still exists but itris also to
be remembered and appreciated
that the bar of the country has
recognized the need for changes
and is as result taking steps which
have its remedy as their purpose.
It is only to be hoped that this and
similar steps accomplish that end.

To the Editor:
May a voice crying in the wil-

Warrior and his staunch adherents
be heard? May we pay one tribute
to Alfred Smtih before he sinks to.
that oblivion reserved for the loser?
A great deal of rabid and parti-
san criticism has been directedE
against The Daily and its personnel E
because it gave the defeated can-
didate more space than the victor
on the morning aftre election. It
is typical of the crowd that it lauds
the winner and despises the loser
in a contest of any sort. There is
no stigma attached to this atti-
tude, still it seems to me that the
editor of The Daily did a very
generous and courageous thing in
giving Smith the credit he deserves
for steadfast efforts as the candi-
date of the traditional losers in the
great American game of "Office,
office, who'll get the office?" Her-
bert Hoover will be front page stuff
for the next four or eight years;
tie "Happy Warrior" is now no
more than one of the hundreds of,
thousands of Smiths, less distin-
guished than the cough drop gen-,

more on the pages of newspaper-I

About Books
'"Get the hell home," said Lancy
Micks, "and stay there!"' Thus
spoke the resolute, gruff, albeit
kind owner of a Cuban sugar plan-
tation to his daughter, Ruth. And
he, after all, is the real hero of
"Cock Pit,"* a tale of war on the
sugar frontier. Yet in the end he
does not marry her heroine, for
unfortunately nature had twenty
years before arranged that she be
his daughter.
His speech, which we have just
quoted in its cursory terseness, is
the most typical in the entire book.
It reveals his dominant importance,
and his virile assertivenessi that
carry him through the plot. If the
reader tires for an instant with the
relentless power of the hero, he is
bouyed by the dulcid freshness of
his daughter. The book does not
have any deep import, but it is fine

After sitting each Tuesday and
Thursday and listening to the
Anglo-American entertainer, Wen-
ley, assert in accents wild that
"only a damn fool will try to write
anythin about philosophy in a
book," it is indeed refreshing to
find that some members of the
philosophy department of the Uni-
versity have both the inclination
and the ability to put their ideas
into print and to get them before
the public. When that remarkable
aesthetician, De Witt Parker, sets
down his theories in a book, that
book becomes a text for thousands,
learned men and aspirants to
learning. And when that other
prolific and brilliant member of
the department, Roy Wood Sellars,
expresses his conceptions in print,
thousands find here again mental
stimulation and the exercise of a
keen mind.
In the latest Sellar's volumn, "Re-
ligion Coming of Age,"* one finds
a keen analysis of the problems of
religion through the ages, and
comes, through the exposition of
the problems and the riddles, to
understand some of the elements
which are at the bottom of the
present so-called "decay of re-
ligion." There is throughout the
volume the concentration on the
problem which religion faces in this
changed world of ours-a world
which is as little like the nineteen-
th century as the nineteenth cen-
tury was like the century of Plato's
In the present state of the
church, perched precariously on
the bring of dissolution, this book
and its material will provide every
thinking person with some good
meaty material in which to sink
his teeth. As to its being right or
wrong-as to the practicality of the
statement and the deductions-we
can pass no judgment. We haven't
been to church in months. But we
did get something out of this book.
And now we don't miss church so
much. It's a good laboratory.

Messrs. Jack and Manion, being
but recently transplanted, would

probably say that tl~is book about'
the younger generation in England
is "bloody rot" or "balderdash" or
whatever it is that an Englishman
says in such a case. But to us,
never having come closer to Eng-
land than Galsworthy, "The Feet
of the Young Men"* seems peculi-
arly significant and authoritative.
The author, who modestly calls
himself "Janitor," has set about to
make some candid comments on
the rising generation, and he has,
by the way, given much that is im-
portant to an understanding of the
British temperament and British
practice. In this book are to be
found all of the personalities who
today are giving promise of thel
leadership that they will tomorrowj
be called upon to assume.
When one has put aside the book I
one has a real impression of some
of the essentials which are moti-
vating the present trend of things
in the British Isles. From this
standpoint the book is fascinating
-one finds people in all of their
moods, coldly analyzed in the light F
of their abilities and their failings
and placed in their approximate
places by one who is "in the know."

Horowitz has so far succeeded in
commanding Detroit enthusiasm
that the audience stood in their THE
seats to applaud his playing. It is ANN ARBOR
understood that this sort of ova-A
tion is reserved only for exception- RESTAURANT
al occasions-such as when a
masterly artist plays some selec- 215 S. Main

At the Cass theater, opening to-
night, is phillip Barry's New York
success, "Paris Bound."
Built around the idea that mari-
tal infidelity has more aspects to
take into consideration than the
strictly moral, it develops away
from the didactic theme, evades
slippery edge of mere bawdry, and
emerges as a vastly amusing com-
edy of two young people who tem-
per the glow of their idealism to
the needs of reality.
Barry is remembered locally for
his comedy of thwarted ideals,
1"You and I"' which Comedy Club
produced last year. Certainly in
that play he did not sacrifice his
theme to his comic sense, nor yet
did he let it fall morbidly into the
doldrum of introspection. If "Paris
Bound" is by way of being a dia-
tribesagainst the Paris divorce
courts, it is very much "by the

nal New York cast, carries the bur-
den of the lead part.

At the Bonstelle Playhouse, now
officially titled the Detroit Civic
theater, there have been gigantic
preparations for the last two weeks
for "The Jest," which opens Mon-
day night for a two week's run,
without extra features of any sort,
in the way of special performances.
A costume melodrama of the
finest tradition, "The Jest" should
be one of the outstanding bills of
the season-at least from the point
of view bof amusement. It presents
the brilliant age of Lorenzo the
I Magnificent of Florence in a splen-
did pageant of court figures, and
provides a fascinating story, told in
broad slashes, of courage and love
and passionate hate. The story and
the costumes are themselves:
enough for the most "ham" actor
to hid. behind safely, but with the
group which Miss Bonstelle has
gathered about her this year the
production should compare favor-
ably with that of the Barrymores,
John and Lionel, some seasons ago.

Willard Mack's latest melodrama-
tic imbroglio, "Gang War," is the
feature at the Schubert Detroit
Opera House beginning tonight
and continuing for a week's run
Willard Mack has been for so
long, it seems like time immemorial,.
the symbol for rapid fire action
and tense dramatic moments
woven into a play that invariably
is better entertainment than criti-
cism-of-life, or whatever it is that
serves as a standard for play judg-
ment, that "Gang War" needs little
synopsizing for the curious' public.
"Rackets" of one sort or another
are so familiar and =yet so fascinat-
ing to naively bloodthirsty Ameri-
can audiences that Mack's choice
of theme and locale seems inevita-
ble. His own direction and produc-
tion guarantee that the master-
piece is played in the wide-open,
bang-up style its conception de-
