The Galen's drive for the benefit
of the crippled children at the
University hospital which contin-
ues again today is not unpreced-
ented upon the campus nor to be
disregarded. The worthiness of its
objective and the efforts of its
supporters are rather to be com-
mended. Certainly, it is not too
much to ask a student body to con-
tribute to such a cause.

Both wets and drys denounced
the appropriation as flagrant hy-
pocrisy, yet failed to do anything
about it. Representative Black
(N. Y.) told the House in plain
language that poisoning industrial
alcohol constituted nothing less
than a protective tariff for Michi-
gan's leading industry-border boot-
legging-and that an inadequate
appropriation simply makes liquor
more expensive for the wets and
amounts to a subsidy to the boot-
The United States government
has reached an anomalous position
-the drys will not stop hoping and I
the wets will not stop drinking-
Congress c a n n o t appropriate
enough money for enforcement and
cannot .remove the law they are
pledged to enforce. Wets are open
to charges of violating the spirit
of the law, and drys are now be-
ing stigmatized as nullificationists.
Prohibition has plainly passed
out of the "noble experiment"
stage. Congress has offered just
half as much for enforcement as
the cost of a first-class battleship.
The situation is a reprehensible
parody on the highest law of the
land, condoned by Congress, and
pardoned by a public opinion that1
has no trouble getting its liquor.
The constitution has received an-
other blow, the House has. per-
jured itself, and the wets have
won another victory.
o -
One more college honor system
has gone into the past by by a nine
to two vote of the student assem-
bly at the- University of Texas. A
tradition as old as the institution
itself, which dates fr.om 1883, has
been discarded because the rule
which placed students on their
honor not to cheat at examina-
tions "as it has been enforced dur-
ing the last few years, has not
proven effective."
This is one more case to be con-
sidered relative to the establish-
ment of such a system at the Uni-
versity of Michigan. There is still
the example of the University of
Virginia as a place where the sys-
tem is said to be extremely suc-
cessful. There it is enforced by
traditions which date back to the
beginning of the system and it is
also said regardless of whatever
else a student may be able to "get
away with," the student body as a
unit voices its disapproval of any-
one caught cheating.
Perhaps, then, the success of
such a plan depends largely on
traditional enforcement, but it
seems to take a tradition of long-
er standing, than one which has
lasted since 1883.
Mayor Jimmie Walker has a
pretty good excuse for being late
now-Hoover didn't get around to
voting until he was forty-three.

A Review, by RWLeslie Askren
"Rainbow's' -End" is by, way of
being a 't riumph of 'collegiate elan C
or, espirit, or something, over the F
rather mawkish but equally col- c
legiate sense''for romantic writing.
Carrying almost' no .definite come- E
dy lines, the show as developed by t
Dan Buell and Harlan Cristy, with E s
the assistance of pinch-hitter x
George Johnson, turned into a
vehicle for some extraordinarily t
ribald and hilarious fun. This in 13
spite of the authors and the direc- t
tion, and because a well trained' I
crew of men, leads and chorus, will f
inevitable express 'themselves if
given half a chance. 1
Dan Buell, as the scheming sou-
brette, 'Rita LeDoux, is quite the t
most graceful, nastily graceful- 1
when you interprete nasty as be-
ing oh, so nice-figure dancing on Y
the stage. He can't quite take him-
self seriously, which is a blessing. 1
His'sense of burlesque comes to the
rescue, and he puts on Lhe keenest i t
exposition of =something hot that '
least within' this limited, memory. t
Clog dancing seems to be the fav- c
orite metier, but the staid adagio <
measure of the Dougall-Lewis team i
of 'last year could not have killed
his comedy effects. The Pow Wow 1
Papa is the most easily remem-
bered bit. Colorful, bizarre non-
sense it was a great chance for
foolery which Buell snatched with ,
both hands.
Sidney Straight, playing they
fascinatingly handsome rancher, f f
plays his part so well that one hesi-
tates to trust him among the I
alumnae. Diffident to a degree his i ;
manner has the engaging appeal of
a darling boy all alone in a cruel
world. The sort to arouse ma-
ternal instinct in quite honest
breasts. However, someone sug-
gested that he illustrate his songs
with gestures, vague waving at the
sky, realistic pretensions of chilli- I
ness. Somebody very silly must
have done ,that.- It is not in his
style.. The' stiffer' he stands the
more genuine he is. But his voice
recalls the palmy days of Barre
Till, eovel"y , in uality, he man-
ag'es -to got ;It;. out over the foot-
lights and string the words-right
along on it. Which is by way of
being a feat.
Harlan Cristy, as Ike the sullen
cowboy and woman hater, created
a tremendous dramatic effect with
his odd trick of scratching himself
in various unnecessary places. It'
was good technique and helped his
lines across, spoken as they are in
an unfortunate growl. And with
him, George Johnson, with his ex-
plosive cigar business, steals the
direct comedy honors.
William Brown, a stunning in-
genue played in a blonde wig and i
some really fine costumes, might
better, except for his dancing num-
bers where he does very well, play
i the whole show from a wheel chair,
! or at least in a sitting position. The
graceful stride of a hiking boy-
scout looks not too'well when doll-
ed up in female trappings. But for
beauty, and more particuraly for
dancing-witness the. Western
Stomp in ' an oilcloth costume-he
can easily be forgiven his rather
obvious masculinity.
Dick Kurvink as the expert pas-
sion queen of Spain, Senorita,
Mercedes, does exceptionally fine i
work in carrying off the hot part
with all the grace and allure of an
experienced vamp. The suggestion
comes that his part might easily

be augumented, to the general pub-
lic amusement, if he were given da
tango dance with the amiable
Miguel. It seems inevitable, and
both men posses the necessary
Otto Brown deserves great credit
for his fine singing, and particular
praise for his incidental "busi-
ness." He" could. have been very
stiff. He turned out amusing; a
personality in himself.
The music which went to make
up the piece was a, successful com-
bination of the jazz type and the
lyric. Lewis' numbers, Wonderful
Girl, Fly .Away, and Mexicana,
were all in the jazz rhythm of pop-
ular music. They were clever stuff,
essentially for the dance. Hey-
man's material, with that of Wat-
kins', was designed for singing pur-
poses and was decidedly successful.
It Lyave ample opportunity for that

As the fifth star in a series of
extraordinary b r i l l i a n c e, The
Choral Union has announced Fritz
Kreisler in a violin concert Thurs-
day night of this week.
Kreisler needs no introduction to
Ann Arbor audiences.. His reputa-
tion is world wide, and locally is a
symbol for genuine artistry. He
presents the amazing picture of an
artist who has sublimated his emo-
tions through technical skill, and
Yet has succeeded in preventing his
technique from becoming a dry,
uninteresting form of manual ex-
But not only mastery of the vio-
lin as an instrument and with it
complete control of the instrument'
in interpretation, has made him a
by-word for virtuosity; his ability
as a composer has brought him the!,
respect of all musicians as well as
a tremendous audience of dis-
crtminating listeners.
His program, as it appeared on
the front page of The Daily for
Wednesday, will be made up en-
tirely of classical compositions, in-
cluding a Rondo from Schubert in
celebrationof the Anniversary, and
figuring- a number of Kreisler's
own arrangements of numbers by
Paganini"and Dvorak.
An innovation in reviewing policy
will be inaugurated with the Kreis-
ler concert tonight. Two reviews
will appear. The first will be a
general impression of the musical
value of the program presented,
with generalized criticism of the
artist. The second review will deal
more particularly" with the tech-
nical phases of the artist's work,
which would be uninteresting to'
the appreviative layman in the
musical field but which neverthe-
less has its place in the fielcl of
definitive criticisms,
These reviews will be separate, to' 1
establish the point of view, and to
identify their purpose. They will
become a 'matter of policy for the
future ln. the case of the more im-
portant artists k if the experiment
proves suecessf-ul.

Last Friday night 3,000 disap-
pointed and therefore hypercritical
spectators watched Michigan State
eke out an unexpected victory over
the Varsity basketball team. The
manner in which the crowd showed
its disapproval did not help the
Michigan team, but handicapped it
as it already was by lack of prac-
tice and injuries:
The football team made an even
more inauspicious start in its first
encounter, only to finish the season
with °a record every Michigan man
has reason to be proud of. The
eleven had rthe students and the
spectators back of it every minute,
no small thing to a team which is
the constant underdog. The spirit
of the students aided the team im-
measurably in making the greatest
comeback in all Michigan gridiron
Saturday night more than 10,000
people -are expected to' assemble in
Yost field house to see Michigan
play Pennsylvania. Come to the
game to see the Penn team, 1927-

to see Joey Schaaf and-the other
all-Eastern players perform. Come
to the game to see Paul Scull, her-
alded as first choice or halfback on
many all-American elevens, the
publicity agents tell us.
But come to the game and cheer
for Michigan. Cheer for a team
that can and will make a come-
back as startling as that of thel
football team. Come and cheer forI

In reading over the editorial

some overheated night editor re-

Your strength and energy, your health

serious illness.
Kellogg's AELa-BRAN can protect you
from this threat. This delightful cereal

every day. It is delicious with fruit. Ask
