longer than is necessary. Further
than this, the ring-leaders of the
present hazing will have to be held
responsible in case any serious
consequences in the nature of open
fights result-a prospect which
even sophomores may not find
pleasant.
To waste further time even de-
nouncing a class responsible for
these outrages is too high flattery,
and certainly any mention is too
much respect for the juniors and
seniors who were seen aiding the,
sophomores in their boisterous-
ness. Michigan has no reformatory
for these types of thugs, but she
does not need to tolerate them in
her midst.'

DID YOU GET
YOUR PERMIT
DEAR THREE STAR-They tell me
Harvey Emery is in the grad school
and aching for a permit. Do you
think it would be better for him to
be refused and thus have a little
wide-eyed retributive justice meted

OR WOULD YOU rather see him
get a permit and let this happen

Mutipz And Drama

A headline in the "World's
Greatest Newspaper" reads,
"Shoots Intruder In Home; Finds
He's Neighbor." That must have
been another one of those quiet
neighborhood arguments you read
about in 'the Chicago papers.
A BIGGER BAND
With the announcement this fall
that plans are under way to in-
crease the4membership of the Var-
sity band to 100 members thus
making it comparable in size with
the leading musical organizations
of its kind in the Big Ten, it seems
well to consider the proposal pro-
jected last spring that University
credit be given to band members.,
Such a suggestion has several
arguments favoring its feasibility.
In the first place, it would mean
that roll would be taken at all
band meetings, thus making it
possible to require a full attend-
ance at all times. This possibility
in itself makes the suggestion de-
sirable, for on too many occasions}
last year the band was eitherf
totally missing at events when its
presence would have qbeen most
desirable or else appeared in such
meager numbers that its perform-
ance was nothing short of dis:
graceful. With the larger member-
ship planned for this year's plan
some scheme of required attend-
ance becomes all the more neces-
sary in order to. maintain the or-
ganization as a working unit.
Credit for the band, however,
offers other possibilities of value
in that it would enable the band
members to spend more time in
practice without feeling that they
were losing opportunities to earn
University credit in other fields. At
the same time it would make possi-

WE ANSWER "YES!"

YOU CAN ALL see that Yellit is
back on the job. He promises plen-
ty of polluted panegyrics to keep
this column going. Remember the
author of the "Ode on Intimations

Ciggy Butt" and "Alias Andy

POLICY
With'the first issue of the year
it seems a bit of a shame to have
to disclairii all the carefully work-1
ed out , policies which received
such thoroughgoing publicity in
this' column the last week of last
school year. They were honest
statements, made sincerely. But
God seems to have a habit of dis-
posing, sometimes quite roughly
of the propositions m'an sets such
store by---which makes this dis-
claimer necessary.
Policies seem to be a human
weakness. First cousin to ideals,
people.think that there should al-
ways be a policy-though how the
deuce they can expect one from a
critical column in a college paper
is more 'than this editor can see-
but ' leepless nights have finally
evolved one, a nice shiny one, to
the effect that this column will no
longer tolerate mountebanks and
fakirs. We shall police the high-
way to Art.
In other respects the column will
remain , the same as it has been
for the4last three or four years,
even to the advance stories about
Detroit' shows, which are a neces-
sary evil, tolerated only because
they make free tickets possible.

"THE RED ROBE"
A Review by David B. Hempstead
Once again the Messrs. Shubert
have built a substantiating column
under their already superlative
position as producers. This time
their effort is dubbed "The Red
Robe," taken from Stanley Wey-
man's novel of the same name.
The score was written by Jean Gil-
bert, whp happily managed to
catchr the romantic spirit of the
thing and was thus enabled to
write several delightful musical
numbers. First among them we
should place "Passer By," and
"Wings of Romance." Doubtlessly
in a ;cOuple of months we will be
wondering how we ever could have
overlooked such established suc-
cesses i:.a "Clarinet," and "What-
ever It Is I've Got It," but anyway
that's our story and we'll stick to it.
Walter Woolf-who, by the way,
was elevated to stardom in "The
Red Robe"-.- gave a performance of
rare quality and demonstrated act-
ing abilty entirely commensurate
