A Review by William J. Gorman.
This iron self-possession of Hei-;

insult to us. For obviously it ex-
presses a scorn of the universali
yearning of all audiences to have
some of the performer's "joy in
art" communicated to .them. It is
difficult to catch this enjoymentc
from the music itself; it demands
listening, which is a tremendous

we are talking about Heifetz as a
virtuoso, we can say his perform-
ance of the Concerto was excellent.
If we speak of him as a musician,
we are justified in saying that his
taste is bad. For his serious ap-


Dean Bursley, although supported
by a few, did not have the major-
ity of those fraternities present at
the meeting on his side of the ar-
gument, however, and no definite
action followed.
Two things were. brought out by
the Dean which bear 'comment.
That "hell" weeks are often un-
necessarily rough on incoming
pledges, both physically and men-
tally, is an unpleasant fact which
must be admitted. While a majority
of the houses at Michigan use the
utmost care during this trying pe-
riod., there are some fraternities
whose tactics occasionally have
resulted in serious bodily injury to
the pledge. "Hell" weeks that inter-
fere with scholastic activities, de-
stroy city property or interfere#
with the affairs of other organiza-'
tions are an abomination and
should be exterminated. It is be-
cause of such houses that Dean
Bursley proposed his ~ drastic step
at the council meeting.
"Hell" week in its original form'
and based on its initial purposes is!
an interwoven activity with the
life of any fraternity. Good "Hell"
weeks mean good men later on;
there is no other time when a
man's mental and physical courage
is so tested. "Hell" weeks are aids
in keeping the fraternity together.
Once a year, at least, the older
men in th- house are re-united in
one definite purpose. The week of
probation is equally essential toI
both neophyte and active member.
Dean Bursley's action is a bit
drastic, but, considering the factsJ
which are evident on both sides,
quite necessary in order to show
Michigan organizations that he.
