Tomorrow afternoon a Michigan
football team will take the field
in its last game of the season. It
is a Michigan team which has
fought against the most terrific
odds which any wearers of the
Maize and Blue have ever faced.
It is a team which has risen to
glorious heights after doomed to al-
most utter failure.
Tomorrow at 1 o'clock the stu-
dent body of the University will
have its last chance of the year to
show its support of this team be-
fore the contest starts on the field.
It is an inconvenient time for a
pep meeting, a time made neces-
sary by a previously arranged con-
cert in Hill auditorium for Friday
night; but the very uniqueness of
the hour may prove a tremendous
inspiration if it can succeed in get-
ting Michigan into a fighting mood
an hour before game time.
Iowa. is bringing one of the
strongest teams in the country,
and a team that until last Satur-
day, was seriously considered as
the Conference champion. Wis-
consin, however, won the game
and dimmed the Iowa title hopes.
But with the same gentle spirit
that a wounded tiger in a corner
faces a teasing opponent, the Iowa
team will take the field against the
Varsity tomorrow.
A pep meeting before the Illinois
game brought forth the best
spirit ever shown here on the fol-
lowing day. That was almost 18
hours before the game. Tomorrow,
the meeting is before the game and
should serve to heighten enthu-
siasm to the highest pitch. Here
is a way to spend the tense hour
before going to the stadium. Use
it in attending the first Saturday
pep meeting!
Homecoming day is usually the
day when the football takes the
firmest hold on the campus to turn
it into a gala place. Homecoming
will he celebrated here tomorrow
when Iowa plays the Varsity in
the new stadium in one of the most
important games of the year. In
this, the University has been for-
tunate, for an important game is
bound to draw more people here
and to make the celebration better.

members of the University Press
club of Michigan and other mem-
bers of the trade to Ann Arbor,
where the club is convening for
another of its annual Fall meetings.
For several years, the club has met
here to discuss the pertinent things
of newspaperdom and to see a Var-
sity football game on the week-end.
The club is nationally known as
one of the livest and most inter-
esting organizations of its kind.
The Michigan group discusses mat-
ters that pertain especially to their
particular line and the ethics and
methods attached thereto, more
than business and kinded sub-
jects. It is the one place where
the newspapers of the state can
clear views and exchange ideas.
The Daily, the University, and
those connected with them, wel-
come the University Press club to
the campus, because each year
brings a closer contact and under-
standing between thel University
and the Press of the state.

To the Editor:
The sophomores have been in
every way disrespectful to the
honorable class of 1932. They
have called us nursing infants, in-
nocents, babes; they have com-
pelled us to make public exhibi-
tions of ourselves, to be laughed at,
to be ridiculed for their own amuse-
ment. It is an old saying that
children must play, and these
sophomores, which word, fellow
frosh, is merely a polite term for
wise fools, are so, puffed up by the
fact that they have spent one year
on the campus, that, like a child1
with a new toy, they must show it
to everybody. They are the babes
in arms, not we. They have ap-
pointed a certain group of their
class to see that our footsteps are
guided in the proper direction.
They complain that we do not live
up to the traditions of the Univer-
sity. Who sets us an example for
respecting these traditions? Sure-
ly the preceeding class. So that if
we have failed in upholding our
positions as freshmen, it is solely
because the erudite sophomores
ignominiously failed to do so too.
All the campus has been made to
believe, by the propaganda and
misrepresentations of the class of
'31, that we are witless creatures,
nincompoops, greenhorns, children
not to be respected at all. Our
chance has come at last for re-
venge, so let us make a thorough
job of it. On Saturday, Nov. 24,
having donned the green paint sym-
bolical of the best class in the Uni-
versity, we assemble at Ferry Field
to do battle to these wise fools.
Then shall be the time to make a
name for ourselves. We must show
the campus that we are a class to
be respected, to be feared; that
they have been grossly deceived by
the class of 1931. Freshmen have
an aptitude for developing an in-
feriority complex. NEVER TINK

THAN YOU ARE! We have the
advantage over them in numbers,
strength, and especially spirit. But
they have experience. To be sure,
it is losing experience, but it will
make them all the more dangerowk
It is up to us, Men of '32, to prove
to them that we are the best class
on the campus. They haye never
won a victory. Our football team
has beaten them this fall. Let us
keep their string of losses un-
broken. This will mean that every
man, be he lit, medic, engineer,
fraternity, or independent, must
be out at Ferry Field Saturday
morning, filled with the will to
win. The team that will not be
beaten cannot be beaten. Are we

only alternative was either to
run one continuous sentence
or to use x's as periodsx
The only objection to this sys-

Any way, we have plenty of
commas, and, considering that,
you know, we had better, after
all, use all of them we can, at
least as long, as they hold out,
assuming, of course, that the
commas, like the periods,
which have run out, making
this terrible mess, can run out,
and, furthermore, they look
pretty nice, anywayx

Music And Drama
TONIGHT: Flonzaley String
Quartet in Farewell Concert
at Hill auditorium, at 8:15
The Flonzaley Quartet will be
heard in the fourth Choral Union
Concert in Hill auditorium this
evening, at which time it will give
one of the concerts in its twenty-
fifth anniversary and farewell
tour. The decision of this organi-
zation to terminate its career at
the close of this season was re-
ceived with regret by music lovers
in America as the quartet has made
itself a superlative record for its
musical art.
Today, the organization stands
above all other such musical en-
sembles. In America its name is
inseparably connected with the
growth of chamber music, Begin-
ning at a time when few people
were interested in this form of
musical art, the Quartet has done
much to develop appreciation of it
The Quartet has been heard in
Ann Arbor seven times, appearing
regularly at intervals of two o
three years. At their past con
certs, they distinguished them-
selves with the perfection of their
ensemble plaving. Messrs. Bti
Pochon, and D'Arnhambeau have
been with the quartet since its for-
mation, and this accomts for the
ability of the players to blend
their parts into a beautiful whole.
The program which they will give
this evening is comosed of two
exceptionally fine quartets and one
pastorale. The detailed program
is: Beethoven: Quartet in B flat
major, Op. 18, No. 6, Allegro con
brio, Adagio, ma non tropo,
Scherzo, Adagio (La Malinconia),!
Allegro quasi allegro; Ernest Bloch:
Pastorale; Schubert: Quartet in G
Major, Op. 161, Allegro molto
moderate, Andante, un poco moto,
Allegro vivace, Allegro assai.
P. L. A.
Articles appearing in Wednes-
day's and Thursday's editions of
this paper dealing first with Paul
Osburn's connection with Dodos, a
private experimental group in
the theater, and then with Prof.
L. J. Carr's offer of his own minia-
ture theater to any persons inter-!
ested In starting a producing or-
ganizatioAi similar to the Dodos,
inevitably brings up the question
of University productions.
In this column last week notice
appeared concerning a one-act
play contest which the Division of
English was sponsoring with a
view to amalgamating the creative,
producing and interpreting de-
partments. The amalgamation,
true enough, was one arbitrarily
brought about through the good-.
will and friendly cooperation o
the various, more or less discon-
nected groups, and was in no
sense a bureaucratic unification.
The ideal of unification, so neces-
sary if any constructive work is to
be done, exists and is the motive
force behind the play-writing con-
test but is has not occasioned any
official action.
in spite o a very poor season
from te point o view of plays
produced, dramatic activity an in-

terest seems exceptionaly great
this year. That is should elicit
such generous responso as Proi.
Carr's oifer of a theater is proof
of its strength. Prociuction of
Paul Osburn's play in i'Ncw York, I
more so than a whole legion of
Avery-Hopwoodiana, is a guaa>
tee of the sincerity and fertility of
that interest. For that reason,
Prof. Carr's offer has some em-
barrassing aspects. it is in every
way a generous offer. It should
be taken advantage of at once-ifn
by no other group than the play-
writing class in the Rhetoric de-
partment. But it has this disad-
vantage, that it tends to force the
University's hand--if students are,
to be allowed to use it-at a time
when no definite official action is
possible yet.
A number of plans are in the air
regarding the creation on this
campus of a University theater.
These chiefly depend on the
method of financing used. But in
their result, the aim they are ex-
pected to achieve, the chief factor
is unification of all dramatic en-
deavour into a fruitful whole. This
is no idle vaporizing in an editorial
way. The dramatic situation as it
stands at present is obviously and
seriously affected by the extreme
disunity of the groups, and by al-
mnost complete reduplication of
