Bob Brown, '26, of the Michigan
coaching staff and -captain of the
great 1925 Varsity football squad,
has been named as general chair-
man for the Burton carillon drive
being sponsored by all the classes
which were at Michigan during the
presidency of the late Marion
LeRoy Burton.
Alfred F. Connable, '25, president
of the Student council at the time
of Dr. Burton's death, has been
named as vice chairman of the
drive. It was Connable's council
which gave the original impetus
to the building of a Burton me-
Selections such as these which
result in the choice of men wh
most prominent men in their
as undergraduates were among the
classes would seem to be most
wise. In every case they should
result in the placing of men pos-
sessed of wide acquaintanceship
among the recently graduated
alumni, and of men who have the

best interests of Michigan at heart,
in positions of importance during
the campaign for funds.
A few bells for the carillon have
already been paid for in the drive
which is planned to secure $86,-
000. In the year which will elapse
before the campaign is definitely
underway, it is very likely that
other contributions will be made
and the task perceptibly lessened.
Continuation of the organization
of the drive is being watched with
interest not only by the student
body in Ann Arbor but by Michi-
gan men and women in every part
of the world. The project, they
feel, is a worthy one and one most
worthy of completion. In such a
cause the value of the personnel
employed cannot be underesti-
Diplomatic circles in Washing-
ton are suffering from an acute at-
tack of common sense. Represen-
tative Britten of Illinois, chairman
of the House committee on naval
affairs, has cast a bombshell into
the State department by proposing
to Prime Minister Baldwin an in-
terparliamentary conference for a
frank exchange of views on naval
armaments. Not caring to realize,
perhaps, the benefits of such a dis-

proposal is manifest. Just for the
sheer pride of possession no nation
wants to burden its taxpayers with
150,000 tons of floating fighting
power. Obviously Coolidge's 15
new cruisers are for national de-
fense - defense against superior
naval power, meaning Great
Great Britain, in turn, has shown
that she means to remain the
world's premier naval power. Her
blocking of constructive results in
the Coolidge naval arms parley and
the much-mooted Anglo-French
compact to secure France's support
in all disarmament haggles with
the United States have clearly in-
dicated her determination to re-
tain the naval supremacy she
wrested from Spain in 1588. The
time has passed when we can
bluff Great Britain into accord
with our views by merely threaten-
ing to build more ships.
There is no reason why the
United States and Great Britain
should engage one another in ar
expensive and disastrous race for
naval hegemony. The ties of blood
and language and trade that bind
the two nations should not be
threatened for the sake of preserv-
ing diplomatic regularity.
Representative Britten's proposal
has been most favorably received
by Premier Baldwin and Parlia-
ment. It most certainly deserves
America's support, for it will pave
the way to new and more represen-
tative understanding, probably
eliminating the necessity for the
new Coolidge cruisers.
Congress . assembled Monday,
passed through an uneventful
routine of beginnings, and should,
if it is not asking too much, begin
within a few days the consideration
of a vast bulk cf national legisla-
A quiet opening and quiet antici-
pation of President's Coolidge's
message, were, however, but scant
foreboding of the work which lies
ahead of the Seventieth Congress
before March 4. With the perplex-
ing problems of tariff revision and
farm relief born during Mr. Hoov-
er's campaign threatening addi-
tional cause for a special session
all was not as serene as might
have seemed at the opening ses-
In the Senate, Johnson's Boulder
dam bill was to have perferred pos-
ition upon the docket but indica-
tions were that it was in for a
stormy seige. Ratification of the
Kellogg-Briand pact also lies ahead
of the upper house of the national
legislature, and should come up for
consideration within the week.
As a "lame duck" session, the
meetings of the coming months
promise to be of peculiar agility.
,There were no casualities in the
ranks of the Republican majority
while the Democrats were losing
six senators and 35 representatives.
In addition there is enough of
public interest and public policy
to come before the retiring Con-
gress to give little reason for the
"lame duck" session proving a non-
productive one.
Arthur F. Falk; a salesman in
Chicago, who, in a drunken rage,
shot his own son, gave out a
Thanksgiving message .which is
worthy of consideration by every
human. The same statements

would have been given out and
have been given 'out by every ha-
hitual drunkard returned to so-
briety, yet the warning is disre-
garded every day.
He admits that in his rage of
drunkenness he did not realize
what he did, which is insanity in
itself. The conclusion is that a,
thinking man should keep sober.
He did not drink as a laborer; he
started as a salesman with time on
his hands; in other words, one;
should keep busy. He realized that
a bad habit grew on him and rec-
ommends cultivation of better
ones. He admonishes young men
not to drink because it won't doI
them any good and because they
dont's want it anyway; it is a
needless and useless habit. He
continues that men who make
moonshine are committing a crime,
that drink takes needed money,
and that a man who drinks loses
the public respect due him.
The advice is old, classicly old.
Falk heard it, as every one has.
What a sorrow and a crime could
have been averted had he heeded
the warning he now gives.
Although 13,000 Chicago schools!
teachers may be somewhat dis-
heartened at the thought of going
without their pay, there are prob-
ably about 700,000 students who
take a rather optimistic attitude

producing any plays. They have
practically monopolized their thea-
tre, letting it only briefly to Come-
dy Club and Matinee Musicale,

forts toward doing right by their
The settings and dances which
they have devised to embellish the
story also present a really fine idea
Somebody said "The West." Some-
one else shouted it. Another;
thought, "The Pueblo Indians."r
And that is the biography of the
decorative idea behind this year's
show. A Missionary was sent from
Mimes to the Indians to bring
a message of good-cheer and
return with all the swag of local I
color he could. This was during
the summer, and in spite of the
heat this man did good work. So
good in fact, that Mimes have felt
justified in spending money like
water to build scenery which would
project his ideas. Costumes are
authentic in spirit; dances are
strongly in the tradition; and the
whole ensemble is distinctly Indian.
Inr this respect Mimes may quite
honestly be said to leading the field
of collegiate operatics.
Another thing they have done isf
enlist the services of a number of
rather good voices. The whispering
tenors of last year's show created
such a mystery about the lyrics of
their songs, except perhaps among
the front three rows, that this
year's collection of song -birds is
calculated to make the further-
most rafters of even "the old Met"
in New York ring with their ex-
halations of such song hits as
"Pow-Wow Papa," which literally
stud the show.
Previews of the show reveal the
fact that right now, and this, odd-
ly enough, is no exaggeration-;
"Rainbow's End" is the most pol-
ished, technically, the most close-
ly knit, dramatically, the mostl
thoroughly articulated, from the
point of view of dancing and sing-
ing, of any of the shows which
have had their premiere at the
Whitney in years. It is a thor-
oughly business like piece of work

Chaiele Grober in her repertoire
of songs sometimes sang from
within herself, as in the charming
"Lullaby," sometimes from without,
as in the satiric "Chant in the
Women's Synagogue.' Her inter-
pretation of moods was extraordi-
narily delicate and sure. It was
not through the broader elements
of pantomime, as might be expect-
ed; rather, through her intensity
of "being," which showed in every
line of her figure and every flicker
in her face.

through the dance, used the broad-

in the idea was apparent. is
