the University which should not
pass unnoticed.

Although the discussion will fur-
nish the regular program at the
meeting of Alpha Nu tonight, it is
open to the public and will be at-
tended by all members of the ex-
tension class. The views of these
men, decidedly different from
those held by student thinkers, are
worthy of careful consideration
and should be well received.

Lamentable to a degree never
more keenly realized than during
the past few months is the lack of
opportunity for the expression and

Student organizations have at-
tempted to improve the situation
by promoting discussions at their
meetings with the result that
thought along certain lines and
among small.groups has been given
considerable stimulation. Discus-
sion of an absolutely free and un-
restricted sort, however, has neve
been encouraged at these meetings
because the specialized fields of
interest of the organizations
havecorrespondingly restricted th(
nature of the questions discussed.
With the announcement, how-
ever, of an informal student forum
to be conducted under the auspices
of the Department of Journalism
a totally new kind of organization
may have its birth. Following a
policy never before adopted in the
recent history of the university
the journalism department pro-
poses to sponsor a plan whereby
student opinion may be exchanged

Besides faculty speakers, others
from outside the campus will be i

The results of such an organiza-

With the selection of the person-
nel for the carillon drive, and the
adoption of a resolution by the
University of Michigan club of Ann

the campanile itself, the proposed
Burton' Memorial Campanile, looms
up as a reality. The further an-
nouncement that the carillon com-
mittees will hold a meeting early
in January and at that time will

gested immediately' after the death
of the late Marion Leroy Burton.
By the resolution passed at a
recent meeting ,the Ann Arbor
club assumed the responsibility for
erection of the campanile. This
building, for which plans have not
yet been chosen, will probably be
built in the :Mall, just north of
Njrth Uhiversity avenue.
The members of all the classes
which were in attendance at the
University 'during the presidency
of Dr. Burton, for whom the mem-
morial is being erected, have band-
ed together and through represen-
tatives of their respective classes
have decided to sponsor the drive
for $86,000 for the purchase .and
installation of a carillon of 53
In the meantime, the Ann Arbor
club is making plans for the secur-
ing of the necessary funds for the
construction of the campanile.
Capable men are being selected
to handle both drives and they will
probably start work simultaneously
early next year to complete the
only remaining step, that of col-
lecting the necessary finances. The
entire program, which is to be
completed by 1937, is a fitting me-
morial to one of Michigan's great-

est presidents .and with the con-
certed effort of tha many interest-
r ed alumni and students, nothing
but the most successful results can
be predicted.
The practice of subjecting can-

At this moment it would be nost
appropriate to say somnthing for
the music, as written by Eddie Hey- "
man, Lewis, and Watkins, as sung,
by the choruses and principals,
and as rendered by the best or-
chestra that has ever graced an
Opera pit. The latter is capably
organized and directed by Roy
Langham, who last year pulled
the show out of a bad hole and re-
ceived little credit for it. The
melodies are Heyman's, and the
best of them are the stirring "Song
of the Cowboys," "I Can't Believe
It," and the hilarious "Pow Wow
Papa." Watkins' "Queen of Hearts"
is the theme song. "Pow Wow
Papa" is put out of the ordinary
class by the singing and acting of
Danny Buell. The most extraordi-
nary thing, however, is the uncom-
promising way in which the music
of Bud Lewis, relegated to the
background in a publicity sense,
scores the only real hit of the pro-
duction. Granted that "Mexicana"
was difficult for the glee club boys
to conquer, it effectively set the
pace for the whole show neverthe-
less. And "Fly Away," opening the
second act, serves in the same ca-
pacity, at the same time giving the
chorus the opportunity of doing its
best work of the evening.
Individual performers must al-
ways be slighted because of space
limit, but the work 'of Dick Kur-
vink, Harlan Cristy, Dan Buell, and
Bill Browne will receive plenty of
notice in the future, or this guess
