Announcement at the Alumni
banquet in Baltimore last Friday
night concerning the Alumni fel-
lowships for which the Regents
have appropriated $12,000, marks
the ,first step taken in bringing
Micig'an's alumni back to Univer-
sity contacts. The creation of the
fellowships marks the second part
of cooperation between alumni and
the University: that of the latter
aiding the former, instead of the
first or more common conception
of that cooperation whereby the
alumnus gives and gives without
receiving anything more than the
satisfaction and maybe a memorial.
The duty of the holders of alumni
fellowships is uncertain to most.
The money will be used to create
two Alumni fellowships which will
be held by members of the faculty.
This will enable the holders, who
are to be Michigan alumni and
therefore acquainted with campus
matters, to obtain from authentic
sources information needed and re-
quested by alumni. In this way,
they take some burden from the
shoulders of the deans and the ad-
ministration. Michigan's 68,000
alumni and former students can be
informed concerning matters of
vital interest in the University in
a quicker and fuller way than ever
before. The alumni fellows will
form a long-needed contact be-
tween these former students of the
University and the present Univer-
sity. To serve the alumni will be
their chief duty.
Over a year ago, the Regents
adopted and supported the idea of
an Alumni University. In this,
they proved themselves more far-
seeing than the officials of most of
the other universities. The plan
is based on the fact that once a
man enters a university, he never
leaves it. And it is a fine concep-
tion. For a long time, the Michi-
gan alumni have been loyally sup-
porting the University without re-
ceiving much in return except good
seats at football games. Now they
are able, or will be as soon as the
plan is effective, to gain intellec-
taal benefit from the school of I
their choice, even if not in atten-
The Alumni university will also
bring the alumni into better un-

will be maintained, and better un-
derstanding developed.
Governor Green's proposal to
unite the governing boards of alli
state-supported colleges appears to
be a sound scheme in the interests
of economy and business-like or-
ganization of the state's activities.
If the taxpayers are now support-
ing two institutions for the same
purpose where only one is neces-
sary, some central authority is
needed better to coordinate the
educational program of the state,
and the governor's proposal to cre-
ate such an authority deserves the
support of all those who have ed-
ucational interests at heart.
In their support of the plan,
however, they must constantly be
on their guard against a serious
menace that Governor Green has
either failed to detect or deliberate-
ly condoned. Before the governor's
proposal is adopted, adequate
asssurance must be given that the
board in which he proposes to unite
the present decentralized govern-
ing boards of the state's various
colleges will not become a political
football to be kicked about for the
sake of a party majority. s -
Some idea of the disastrous ef-
fects of making a board of regents
subserve political ends can be
gained from a consideration of the
bitterness and lack of effective ad-
ministration that surrounds the
presidential chair at Michigan
State college. Four presidents have
resigned in five years due to the
narrowness of a governing board
composed of gubernatorial ap-
Election of regents by popular
vote has assured this University an
able and earnest government with-
outpolitical feeling. On a compari-
son of results secured at this Uni-
versity and at Michigan State, the
new combined board should cer-
tainly be popularly elected. Provi-
sion must also be made to place
men on that board of high charac-
ter and ability comparable to the
Regents of the University. Every
attempt to permit smaller issues
than the welfare of the state's edu-
cational program to influence the
board must be vigorously eradi-
Because of the marked prefer-
ence of newly graduated teachers
to obtain positions in large cities,
the Upper Peninsula is often left
unconsidered. In the small towns
of the Upper Peninsula, where
there is quite a regular demand for
teachers, are found the best oppor-
tunities to get practical experience
with all types of pupils and become
thoroughly trained in all varieties
of teaching methods. Besides these
advantages, there is the added in-
centive of a much lower cost of liv-
ing with practically the same sal-
ary as would be received in larger
As a result of too much geo-
graphical limitation, the prospec-
tive teacher is often disappointed
at the end of the year. In Detroit
or in other large cities in the state
there is little or no chance for the
inexperiened teacher to get work,
principally because in those places
high school and junior high school
positions are filled entirely from
those who have been promoted
from the lower grades.

Every year the Bureau of Ap-
pointments receives from 900 to
1,000 calls for teachers to fill va-
cancies in high schools, small col-
leges, and universities which are
located in small towns. Every man
or woman who expects to teach in
the near future should seriously
consider taking a position in the
Upper Peninsula or in schools
throughout the state, and they will
much more probably find them-
selves recommended to a position
in June.

Reviewed by Herbert Schwartz
The concert at Hill auditorium
last night opened with the Overture.
from The Secret of Suzanne by
Wolf-Ferrari, a swift moving af-
fair obviously aware of the Mozart
tradition but unfortunately lack-
ing in Mozartian simplicity.
Tchaikowsky's Fourth Symphony
was interpreted very appropriately
by Mr. Kolar; there was much;
sympathy for every melody born:
of the sad Russian's tragic life,
most unftting to everything that
had gone before and what was to
come-not to speak of the other
things going on at the same time.
The result was a most sentimental
and incoherent performance which
the audience thoroughly enjoyed-
as no doubt the composer himseelf
would. The orchestra's tone was
admirable if one overlooks the very
bad work of the brass, a difficult
task with Tchaikowsky. The wood-
wind was especially praiseworthy
in the Andantino, and the violins
for their precisions and quality in
the very difficult passages of the
It was 'unfortunate that Mr
Horowitz chose to play so uninter-
esting a work as the D Minor Con -
certo by Rachmaninoff. This
pianist has remarkable equipment
both musical and pianistic and one
regretted a lost opportunity to see
these put to better use. The music
is brilliant but not completely so.
It wants to be otherwise and can-
not. Sudden spurts of short rhythm
savour much of Stravinsky but soon
the demoniacalbvoice of Liszt calls
the composer back and many fast
notes with little backbone other
than metronomic rhythm appear,
much to the virtuoso's gratification.
Mr. Horowitz has a very sensitive
tone, not without percussion, but
the more desirable for it, since it
lends an added tang to an already
incisive rhythm. The chiseled
fineness of release in the tremen-
dously fast tempi of the passage-
work was phenomenal. This pianist
attacks the instrument with auth-
ority but without any of the un-
controlled noise that so often pays
for this virtue. In the few passages
that permitted it, Mr. Horowitz
showed an altogether joyful aban-
don; this did not interfere' with a
sensitive response to the rubato so
dear to Rachmaninoff. The en-
semble was very precise, quite con-
tradicting reports from New York
concerning the young pianist's
wildness. Indeed the artist's res-
traint and poise were comfortingly
noticeable. A little more care
should have been taken in tuning
the orchestra to the piano, which
was pitched higher than the or-
chestra, enough to be annoying and
even weird before the cause was
made apparent.
Mr. Horowitz was received with
great applause and after much
bowing consented to give the ap-
lauders what they wanted. He
played a Chopin Mazurka, in C
Minor. It did not seem that he
wanted to play so it would be un-
fair to criticize any undue haste
and carelessness here. We hope
that this very unusual artist will
play here in recital shortly, when
he may be more adequately ap-
preciated and judged.

Wednesday afternoon, Palmer
Christian will again officiate at
the organ for the regular Twilight
Recital series. The program in-
cludes Mozart's Overture to "The
Magic Flute," which, written in
1791 and the last of his Operas, is
a treatment musically of some of
the symbols employed in the ritual
of initiation to fremasonry and
according to critics, presents the
master not only skillful in his con-
trapuntal devlopment of the theme
but fluent in his knowledge of
ritualistic symbolism.
The Bach Prelude and Fugue in
B minor, which is the fourth num-
ber on the program, presents Bach!
in the crowning period of his ca-
reer when he was Cantor of the
Thomas-School in Leipzig. The
Prelude is considered the finest of
any of this type of composition in
the Bach library.
For the last part of the program,
Mr. Christian has selected a num-
ber of modern composers for the
organ. "Pensee d'Automne" by
Jongen is a modernistic spirit given!

way that is more distinctly in the

you is that today from Australia I
