profits-reader-interest. It is re-
grettable, however, that these
newspapers must distort the college
situation by giving such undue em-
phasis to the unattractive features
of college life. With a few notable
exceptions they make little effort to
play up such events as scientific
discoveries, achievements in liter-
ary research, games of oratory, or
the promotion of academic effic-
iency.
Such things do not readily findl
their way into the regular channels
of news-gathering. Many univer-
sities, among which Michigan is
conspicuous by her absence, have
established press bureaus with the
avowed intention of publicizing
their constructive efforts. These
bureaus offer a valuable service to
papers that wish to be accurate,
truthful, and comprehensive in
their presentation of the news, and
information so distributed should*
be honored more by those respon-
sible for what the public reads.
Michigan should have such a
bureau to offset the unfavorable
publicity she receives through her
erring sons, And to help defeat
that state-wide body of the univer-
sty's detractors who find in the
press a valuable aid to their cam-
paign of imputing moral turpitude
to Ann Arbor students.
FOOTBALL'S HEALTHY
CONDITION
Ann Arbor's annual obeisance be-
fore the great God Football ended!
yesterday with no regrets. Michi-
gan's season record is not one of
championship calibre, but there is
a large measure of consolation in
having risen to play three of our
strongest opponents to a standstill.
To Harry Kipke, who built our
game and fighting combination in
the face of defeat and adverse crit-
icism, our hats go off.
It would be monotonous if Mich-
igan always won the Big Ten foot-
ball championship. It would also
be monotonous if Illinois alwaysI
Avon it. It is a novelty, a thrill, andC
a real pleasure to see it go this
year to Purdue-their first cham-
pionship. Such a passing around
of the laurels represents- a healthyj
condition of our great American,
game.
It looks as though all the teams
would be back next year doing
business at the same stands withI
a lively scrap for the championship.
We venture the prediction that the'
competition will be as keen and as
popular as ever, and that Michi-
gan, through Kipke's added exper-
ience, will come out nearer the top.

Here are the facts. If, after read-
ing them, you understand why the
Iowa game should be discounted on
the record books you are just about
five steps ahead of us which is
just what the night editor told me
when I said I had a good news
story about professional at Iowa.

VICTIMIZING STUDENTS
There is more rejoicing in a
newspaper office over one college
student in jail than ninety and
nine jailbirds who never tried to
educate themselves. It is a pecul-
iar fact about modern metropolitan
journalism that a collegian whose
irresponsibility gets him in the
toils of the law is worth more and
better space, and bigger and better
headlines, than the most atrocious
crimes of our toughest criminals.
The Fletcher hall episode, for in-
stance, made front page on most of
the state papers whereas the seiz-
ure of a similar quantity of liquor
from an extra-mural bootlegger I
would hardly have gotten into lead
outside of Ann Arbor. The same is
manifestly true of the Illinois fra-
ternity house seizure and resultant
dismissals. Few murders, in fact,
have been as thoroughly publicized
as the confiscation of some dozen
gallons of liquor that happened to
be in the possession of Illinois col-
lege students.
These instances could be multi-3
plied ad nauseam if any further
proof were needed that college stu-
dents are being victimized by the
newspapers. Their names are be-
ing publicly blackened and their
right to an equal start in life jeo-
pardized, partly because they of-.
fend the law momentarily, and
mostly because they are guilty of
being college students. Dr. John-
son's whimsical reference to the
atrocious crime of being a young
man" has been taken out of its
context by the current species of
city editor, and the irresponsibility
of youth has been made a penal of-
fense by the great court of the
press.
This subversion of justice, of
which the great body of the press
is guilty, would not be of such vital
concern did it not indirectly de-
fame all college students categori-
cally, and the universities which{

As we have stated above, Mr.
Dunnitt's first appearance on the
professional athletic field occurred
shortly after this picture was taken
which probably accounts for the
mustache. Picture to yourself the
crowd which lines the croquet
ground, with its banners, its color,
its yells-Oh! those yells, how they
send one back! Picture, if you
can, I can't, Mr. Dunnitt as he
stands there, brazen creature that
he is. Little does he know that
his present deeds will be his down-
fall. Fearless and cool he awaits
the opening whistle which will set
the croquet match all aglow. TheI
whistle shreaks, hoarsely. The bat-
tle of the century, not to say of all
time, is on. Strike after strike he
lays upon the opposing team which
is composed of his sister. In five
minutes she is out cold. Drunk.
Dead drunk.

VLADIMIR HOROWITZ
A Review by William J. Gorman
Vladimir Horowitz' second ap-
pearance with the Detroit Symph-
ony, this time with the Tschaikow-
sky First Concerto, was again an
occasion for wild enthusiasm. He
was appearing as co-guest with
Alexandre Glazounov, the last of
the great Russians, whose visit was
glamorous enough from extra-mu-
sical considerations but quite un-
important musically, as his con-
ducting was not even subtle enough
to conceal the fact that the orches-
tra was imagining the Gabrilo-
witsch of the rehearsal as conduc-
tor and doing it rather lamely. It
was Horowitz that made Friday's
concert a brilliant one.
He revealed the same poise and
restraint in the Tschaikowsky Con-
certo as last year in the Rachman-
inoff. He possesses, of course, an
amazing technique-a phenomenal
ability to achieve facile octave-
work and dynamic nuances at an
intense pitch of vibratory power,1
to extract fortissimo without using
brute force, to chisel fine incisive
rhythms with the temper of steel
springs, to maintain proportion of
emphasis between hands. But all
thin Horowitz uses strictly as equi-
ment; never for exhibition. In fact,
the peculiar merit and novelty of
Horowitz's approach to the two
concertos (neither of them very re-
markable music) is the absence of
personal exhibition. His tempo in
the first movement was not start-
lingly brilliant as that of Leonid
Kreutzer and Rudolf Ganz, both of
whom have used the Tschaikowsky
Concerto in Detroit appearances
for a pretentious display of pyro-
technics; it was modest and com-
fortable.
For Horowitz' style is far re-
moved from that of the hirsute
thunderers who roll concertos into
our ears to keep them ringing there
for a week. His manner is cold and
external and simple, and above all,
honest. His is no opulent, satiny,
linering touch seeking to stretch
little moments out to eternity.
Well-related forms issue in perfect
definition, with no personal yearn-
ings dripping from them. His mel-
odic lines are all straight; there is
no stopping for maundering pret-
tinesses; the lines may lose some-
thing in detail but as wholes they
are effective. Horowitz gives an
intellectual performance. His clar-
ity and dignity and detachment
forms in my mind the perfect type
of artist. He uses the piano con-
sciously, and strictly as an instru-
ment; there is no attempt at merg-
ing himself with the piano by the
ecstasy of the moment of perfor-
mance.
Music, good or bad, is crushed out
of recognition by pianists with
heavy hands and no intellects, sur-
face effects losing their charm by
the insistence and stress in the
style of brainless pianists, and the
deeper movements never appear-
ing. Horowitz has the intellectual
grasp of his duty and consistently
gives a lucid exposition of the writ-
ing. His style represents a vitality

that has its source in genuine feel-
ing for the music but is organized
by the intellect and perfectly and
completely translated into terms of
conscious piano-playing. When the
music is mediocre (as I think in the
case of both concertos) our reaction
is curious, alert and reflective ra-
ther than sensational. His recital
in Ann Arbor this year, when un-
doubtedly he will play good music,
should be the most interesting one
I in the series.

AN ANN ARBOR RULE
(Chattanooga News)I
At the University of Michigan, an
interesting rule has been imposed
upon the members of the student
body. It is that no student can
own or have an automobile at the
university, without the express per-
mission of the authorities, a per-
mission but rarely accorded.
It is said that the rule has had
a very beneficial effect upon scho-
lastic standings at Ann Arbor. In
fact, we understand that the aver-
age standing of the students for
the first year in which "tin lizzies"
were under the ban was 7 per cent
more than for the previous joy-
riding year.
This brings up an interesting
question. What is the effect of
automobiles on student life? We{
wonder if it is true that collegesI
where cars are as common as text-
books have a lower average grade1
than those where they are taboo?
This brings up a further question.
Do students go to college to get an
education or do they attend be-
cause it is the accepted thing to
do?
Many American universities arej
much upset about this question. In'
some, the suggestion has been made
that we should have a three-ply,
higher educational system; a coun-
try club for those who like the at-
mosphere; professional schools for
those who want to learn how to
use the tools of trade, and last of
all, a university, where knowledge
is sought for wisdom's sake by
