Michigan Nights have for more
than two years been a regular
weekly feature presented by the
University. The very fact that the
state of Ohio has realized the value
of radio as a first class medium of
educating its citizens and is willing
to spend a considerable amount of
money, is good proof that the men
who worked toward the goal of
obtaining a broadcasting station
here had foresight to a marked de-
gree. The next step is a Univer-
sity extension service which will
offer regular courses, including
lectures and quizzes.
The Senate, back from a brief
vacation, is struggling unsuccess-
fully with the Paris peace pact,
signed by Mr. Kellogg last August
in Paris. Opposition to the pact
now threatens to assume the pro-
portions of a filibuster unless Sen-
ator Borah and his followers con-
sent to the inclusion of irtain
reservations in the Senate reserva-
Lauded on many sides as one of
the most idealistic documents ever
submitted for the approval of dip-
lomats and statesmen, the Kellogg
pact suggests little that is either
binding or compulsory in its word-
ing. True, Great Britain has seen
fit to make at least one sweeping
reservation and there are other
implications which have succeeded
in arousing the mistrust of a num-
ber of senators, notably, of course,
Moses and Reed.
Chief opposition to unreserved
acceptance of the treaty, however,
seems to be largely traditional.
Since the Jay treaty of 1799, the
Senate has demonstrated contin-
ually a faculty for tacking reser-
vations onto treaties and jealously
maintained its rights to undo the
best efforts of American diplomats.
The tendency became even more
pronounced following the institu-
tion of the Monroe Doctrine as an
integral part of the United States
foreign policy, and in recent years
scarcely an international treaty
has received senatorial approval
without a guarantee of the rights
which we claim under the doctrine.
It was Mr. Borah's opinion at
one time that the pact would pass
the Senate without challenge and
without. reservations. He still
claims that no reservation will be
made. Outsiders, however, have
been, forced to the opinion that
either a reservation will be drafted
with the acceptance of the treaty
or else the calendar of the Senate
for the balance of the present ses-
sion will remain hopelessly clogged.
That so much discussion should
be necessary and that the business
of the upper house of the national
legislature should be so definitely
halted by a measure no more dif-
ficult than the Kellogg pact seems
both odd and unfortunate. The
theaty, as a matter of fact, is a
helpless thing, meaning nothing
more than the expression of a defi-
nite will for peace. The American
people have no other attitude.
Surely there is little reason why
the Senate should hesitate to place
its approval upon such an expres-
Our idle wonder for the day is
just this: Could Major Mills, who
won the Durant prize for present-
ing the best solution of the pro-
hibition problem turn right around
and win the Hearst prize essay con-
test on the best way to get rid of
That old fellow who always
goes around saying, "The winters
nowadays aren't near as bad as
they used to be back in the 90's",
seems to be strangely missing this

"Drys Clash With Police,"
screams one of Detroit's newspaper
headlines. It seems that even the
police are fighting them now.

To his already generous gifts to
the University, of Martha Cook
dormitory and the Lawyers' club,
W. W. Cook. '81L, has now added a
gift of $1,750,000 for the erection
of a "legal research library" in the
quadrangle, of which the Law club
bounds two sides. The gift was
accepted by the Regents at a meet-
ing yesterday morning.
Mr. Cook's two other gifts al-
ready stand as monuments to his
generosity to the :University. The
student body, the University, and
the state of Michigan should ex-
press their gratitude to this Uni-
versity alumnus who was given1
freely in order that the Law school
and women students should be well
The Michigan Law school ranks
as well as any in the country, and
the Law faculty is one that any
other University would be proud
to have. In spite of this, the build-
ing programs of the past few years
have failed to add needed' equip-
ment, and it is but recently that
any improvement has been noted
in the attitude of the University
and the, State. A new library has
been long needed, and marks an
important step in what has long
.been the dream of alumni and
thoseinterested in the Michigan
campus: a unitary Lawdepart-
ment, with the Law club, school,1
library, and adjoining buildings in
the quadrangle of State, Monroe,
and Tappan streets, and South
University avenue.
The new building will undoubt-
edly provide Michigan with' an un-
rivalled building and fine equip-
ment, and this act alone should
fill the University with a feeling of
thanks and gratitude to this gen-l
erous alumnus and donor.J
Once more the radio steps into
the foreground as a superior edu-
cational agent with the announce-
ment of the Ohio Bureau of Edu-
cation that it will equip 7,000
scholrooms throughout the state
with radio receiving sets. Talks
made by well known educators and
men in other fields as well as vari-
ous features will be broadcast dur-
ing each school week.
The state of Ohio has come to
realize what has been receiving
greater recognition every day,
which is, that the radio, as a rapid!
and efficient means of spreading!
education, broadcasting sporting
events, political talks, or propa-
ganda of any nature whatever, is
not to he surpassed.

Music And Drama
Contrary to the opinion that has
sprung up in some quarters, the
recent article giving a digest of
Opera reviews was not written to
white-wash the previous article of
adverse criticism. Obviously, it
was more nearly an effort to pre-
sent both sides of a question which
in spite of more or less general
apathy, deservesconsiderable con-
sideration. The Opera is coming to
lose many of its original virtues.
The problem is to discover new
functions for it, or abandon it.
A feature of some of the out-of-
digest of reviews is the credit given:
town opinions published in the
the men-girls' chorus. Critics are
delighted that the men look more!
and more like real girls. some-
what doubtful compliment to
Middle-Western he-men, it also
implies that the low-comedy in-
cidental to such impersonations is
being lost.
Comment also stresses the very
professional manner of imitating
the current Broadway fashion of
sweet-musical romance. Mr. Shut-
er deserves every credit for adapt-
ing existing mechancial effects inj
the theater to the needs of the
book. But yet nothing new, or
original was produced. The money
behind the show suggests consid-
erable possibilities for experimen-
tation with effects.
Currently Broadway is demand-
9 ing of its musical shows an intel-
ligible, dramatically organized
book. Witness "Treasure Girl" or
"Follow Thru" as striking in every;
way but that one. The Opera this
year was considerably criticized
for inadequacy in that direction.
It is generally considered a public
secret that the book is usually
written by a professional, consid- I
erably ballyhoo to the contrary,
notwithstanding. Last year's show
was, however, purely student-writ-
'ten. Results in either case were!
not wholely satisfactory. This
year's Junior Girls' Play will pre-
sent a new combination of profes-
sional-student writing. The re-
sult will be instructive. But who-
ever may be responsible for the
book of next year's opera, certainly
! some more definite effort to
achieve dramatic effect should be
made, even if it necessitates the
elimination of the various chor-
uses. A good show, using music
and choruses, with the emphasis on
the dramatic still could be written
on the model of the very success-
ful "Burlesque."
In regard to the choruses two
paths seem open. If Michigan is
to ape Zeigfeld and Broadway pro-
ductions in general then it would
seem best to raise a crop of Fresh-!
men who look like girls. If Michi-
gan is to originate fashions, how-
ever, it would seem logical that a
chorus of men playing girls' parts
should be treated for all the low-
comedy there is in such a situation.
This might seriously strain the!
credibility of the book-but then,
are the choruses so indispensable
that a good show without them
could not be written and presented
to the Alumni for its own sake?
The play, after all, might really
be the thing..
Unofficl report has it that this
year'shextravaganza was so expen-
sive that Union officials do not ex-
pect their books to show more
than an even break on their
money. But lack of profit does not
worry them because of the sound-
ness of Union financing which
now makes subsidyiunnecessary.
IEvery student can give thanks forI

that. Every student, however,
might wonder why such a good
money-maker like the OperaE
should not be made to subsidize
some other needy institution. The
obvious suggestion is the Mimes
theater, which could bear consid-
erable improvement. A further
suggestion would be a policy, niain-
tained for some years, of using
Opera profits as a nucleus for the
building of a University theater.,
Conceivably, with the other funds'
which are already on hand for that
purpose, the Opera revenue an-
nually could be an important item
in such a budget. Furthermore,
the Opera, emerging from the
wo -kshop of a University theater,
would be considerably more repre-
sentative of the Michigan which
the student body actually is, than,
the present type of show which is I
still haphazardly an imitation of!
But the essential thing, undoubt-
edly, from every point of view is,
that next year's show, and those
of succeeding years, be written
with the avowed purpose of making
a good show-giving a hundred'
cents' worth on the amusement
dollar-whether this means ro-
mantic musical comedy, a hybrid
show like "Burlesque" or an out and
out legitimate attempt like thej
Harvard Prize Play.

Editorial Comment


(Detroit Free Press)
A bill has been introduced in the
New York legislature to amend the
judiciary act so that the law exam-
iners may admit to the bar "a per-
son who has served four times as
governor of New York state,"
without examination. This pecu-
liar requirement for admission to
the bar has been met by only one
man who is still alive and thus able
to benefit from the amendment
proposed by the Republican assem-
blyman from Rockland; and last
year Governor Smith told this gen-
tleman that if such a bill was en-
acted he would veto it. The in-
troduction of it after Governor
Smith has left office not only re-
veals an unimaginative mind, anxi-
ous to honor a distinguished exe-
cutive; but risks making the ob-
ject of its solicitude ridiculous.
The bars of the legal profession
are already so low, as many law-
yers admit, that the intelligence
and ethical quotients of the fra-
ternity are in danger of serious
impairment. Al Smith's ethics are
all right; but his legal training is
scant. Why not give him a hand-
ful of LL. D.'s and let it go at that?

80 Varieties of Aunt C
Lou Candies, All atO6 Per lb.
The famous Aunt Lou Candies are made just like mother would make them in
the home, the same grade of ingredients are used that she would use.
For instance, the cream used is 25% butter fat.
The finest materials money can buy are used in the
making of Aunt Lou Candies
The sugar used is the finest granulated grade, the same as you use on the table.
The vanilla used is the very best, costing us $25 per-gallon.
The flavors are all made from pure fruit.
No substitutes whatever are used in the manufacture of this fine candy, in fact, if
Aunt Lou Candies sold at $2 per pound, no better ingre-
dients could be used in their manufacture.
A trial will convince you of the excellence of Aunt Lou
Candies-come in and sample them.
We know our Butter Creams and Fresh Dipped Strawber-
ries will be the talk of Ann Arbor - they are
so utterly different.
Every time you enter an Aunt Lou candy store you are offered samples of the
various candies on the counters-please accept these samples, we are sure you
will like them.
