A rather extensive glance at the
creative activity of Serge Proko-

ter of Pro Musica, international or-
ganization sponsoring modern mu-
sic, Sunday night. The program in-
cluded a long group of piano pieces,
played by himself, three melodies,
for violin and piano, several of his)
songs, and an overture on Yiddish
themes for four strings, clarinet
and piano. The idealism (and the
finance) involved in making such
a program possible are highly com-
mendable things and the organiza-
tion may well ask Ann Arbor pa-
trons of music if they are int'erest-
ed in its work.

Anne Sedgwick-who, in private
life, rejoices in the imposing name
of Mrs. Basil de Selincourt-has a
rhetorical mode singularly well ad-
apted to this peaceful material. Her
words flow with a smoothly artif-
cial effect that is neither strength
nor weakness, like the pretty ob-
viousness of a Burne-Jones.

What is the matter with the U.
of M. that it has a such a raging.
thirst, such a lawless disposition,
and such a lack of veracity in its'
statements?
Presidents Lowell of Harvard,
Hibben of Princeton, and Angell of
Yale all state that their students
drink much less liquor than they
did before Prohibition.,
Do you not believe that these
men have access to reliable data,
and that they would not publish
statements. that they did not know
to be true? You publish as facts
what are simply your own personal
impressions, and injure your Uni-
versity by doing so.
Who is going to take the impres-
sions of a school-boy against the
word of college men of many years
of experience?

A CHANCE FOR ACTION.

For years-it, is difficult to say
definitely just how many-the In-
terfraternity council has been
passing resolutions, appointing
committees, and collecting dues
from fraternities. The council's
latest project, tax exemption,
v hich was actually pushed with a
certain zeal for a short time, seems
to have expired together with
many of the issues which have
fired the council's spiritin the past.
The examples of that body's in-
ertia are numerous and pathetic.
Two months ago a committee was
appointed to investigate the hell-
week and make suggestions to
remedy it. Although the initiation
season will soon be over, the com-
mittee has still to meet. Another
committee was to investigate fra-
ternity dances and to present con-
siderations for their improvement,
but soon the social season will be
over with the report still unmade.
The council's drive for fraternity
tax exemption, or reassessment at
least, was an honest attempt to
rectify conditions in Ann Arbor
which are admittedly unjustifiable.
But with the failure of the first ef-
fort to bring about tax exemption,
the council lost interest.
Naturally enough, the fight for
complete exemption failed because
support from Ann Arbor legislators
was lacking and a hostile senti-
ment against such action had
crystallized. Yet there seems to be
absolutely no reason why the coun-
cil should not consider seeking a
reassessment of the wax values on
fraternity property. As the matter
now stands, this problem has been
left up to the individual fraterni-
ties who cannot possibly bring to
bear enough concerted pressure to
do any good.
It would be wise, therefore, for
the council to revive its former
activity and send a delegation to
the hearing of the State Tax com-
mission on March 20 at the Capi-
tol, at which time there will be a

AN ALL-STAR SEXTET.'
To the Editor:
After witnessing practically ev-
ery game, the University hockey
team has played on the local ice,
two of us enthusiastic followers of
the fastest game in the world de-
cigled to select an all-star sextet.
Both of -the selectors hail from)
Canada and have been brought up
around the Canadian national
past-time, so we think we are at
lease to some degree capable of se-
lecting a team.
For our all-star lineup we select
the following:
Tompkins (Mich.) .........Goal
Peterson (Minn.) ....Left Defense
Ruitta (Mich. Tech.) ...... .
.................Right Defense
D. McFayden (Marquette)....
. ...................... Center
Langen (Mich.).....Right Wing
McKenzie (Marquette) ....
.Left Wing
Thompson (Wis.) Spare Forward
Fenton (Minn.), Spare Forward
Joseph (Mich.) .. .Spare Forward
Hart (Mich.) ...... Spart Defense
Metcalfe (Wis.)... Spare Defense
Christie (Minn.).... Spare Goalie
Without doubt the forward line
of Donnie McFayden, Bill Langen,,
and Pudge McKenzie is composed
of the brainest and best all-around
players that have performed be-
fore the Michigan spectators this
winter. Each one packs a terrific
shot, and they all really know how
to skate, and shine on the offen-
sive and defensive play. One thing
of importance is that the fans
should remember that Langen, star
Wolverine center, plays contin-
uously which is a superhuman task
in as fast a game as hockey. Had
Langen an opportunity to rest for
a few minutes he certainly would
go a great deal better, though hef
is always in the greatest portion of
the play.
The spare forwards give the first
stringers a close run, but do not
rank with the above trio.
Tompkins of Michigan wins by a
slight advantage over Christie, the
flashy Gopher net-minder. Both
are clever in the nets. Tompkins
deserves a great deal of credit for
Michigan's victories.
Peterson and Ruitta are given
first call for the defense berths,
though Hart and Metcalfe are close
in the running. All four are stiff
