To the Editor:
. .Why should a senior class of
a state university. haven the right
or audacity to prohibit the fairer.
sex from, attending its class ban-
quet? It is primarily a class func-
tion and every member has a per-
fect right "to choose to go." I sup-1
pose, should we dig into the annals
of the University's tradition we
would find the old controversy of'
the timid co-ed and the bold Mich-
igan man, and this banquet limita-
tion is just another example of the
lAtter's supposed superiority.
Superior? Bah, and who after
spending four years on the campus
would declare the average Michigan
Man above his fair sister? . .. Mind
you I am dealing in generalities,
but can say this for others besides
myself. The average Michigan Man
can't hold a candle to the average
Michigan girl. The latter are
brighter (results of statistics), bet-
ter looking, more poised, and above
all have acquired a subtle and
charming sophistication that few
of the men possess.
It "gets" me to hear the men toot
their own horn so lustily and trod
on the co-eds, when a friendly and
cooperative attitude would be the
more logical and pleasing arrange-
ment. . .. If every student at Mich-
igan would try to respect his Alma
Mater and its traditions rather
than make light of both, our na-
tional reputation would not be in
such grave danger of decline.
Often are we reminded of 'our
noted faculty members who are
seeking work elsewhere-a direct
slap in the face to the University's
prestige-and of the machine like
management of the University and
the subsequent loss of individual-
ism. How can a person feel sin-
cere regret at leaving a school
where he has been merely an in-
Ssignificant cog in an over organiz-
ed institution, where his own ideas
and ambitions have been suffi-
ciently squelched in the class room
and where, unless he was part of
a "party" or possessed a great deal
of nerve, his extra curricula acti-
vities have been severely limited.
Admitted that fault-finding is a
pernicious habit, there are some of
us Who believe improvement comes
from picking out the flaws and
remedying them. June is near and
I for * one am glad for I feel no
deep love for the University as a
school, as it now exists. May we
not hope for a brighter future and
perhaps I had better apologize to
those men who are above the ave-
rage. Just a Co-ed.

Don't believe everything you
hear. Just because the calendar
says it's spring you don't have to
get excited and rush out after a
new spring wardrobe. The fact is,
Old Man Winter has been kidding
us all along and has just laid in a
new supply of snow and ice for
distribution in the near future. .
l r. Saunders, of canoe livery
fame, is equipping his stock with
skis, in order that summer school
students will be able to skid about
on the Huron when the time comes;
and the city has just ordered a
snow plow to help keep the streets
cleared for the July and August
traffic jams.

"And so, dear children, all the
little girls at the University of
Michigansuffered deeply that sea-
son by having cold breezes and
deep snow until far into the spring
months," related Dame Fashion
sadly, "and couldn't wear their
pretty new suits and coats."

TONIGHT: Second performance
of "The Wild Duck," by Ibsen, by
the members of Play Production in
University Hall auditorium.
A Review by William J. Gorman.
In the marshes of University
Hall auditorium, quite too thickly
tangled with people, was enacted
last night quite one of the best
productions in the last three years.
In interpretation of a difficult play
and in translation of that interpre-
tation in terms of production, Rob-
ert Wetzel's production of The Wild!
Duck with the members of Play
Production is celrtainly the most
finished thing done this year.
One has been obtuse about the
qualities of The Wild Duck in read-
ing; production is certainly clari-
fying. One has worried about the
symbolism, talked of its relation to
Ibsen's life, complained of the un-
mediated grafting of tragedy on,
satire. In Mr. Wetzel's lucid read-
ing, one sees Ibsen giving free play
to the Comic spirit even-to the gro-
tesque horror of the concluding
scene, a comis stroke in the man-
ner of Aristophanes.
Kenneth White the comic char-
acter of Hjalmar Ekdal quite clear.
He plays him as actually rabbit-
like domestic character trying des-
perately to show "something of the
wild duck" at Greger's urging;
feeding on the sense of his own
nobility; a stupid sort of Richard
II, the enacter of little emotional
melodramas, beautifully projected
by his eloquence. At the revela-
tion of Gregers he attempts to pull

The great American people, by
and large, were probably not sur-
prised to find that two thirds of a
representative group of college
students favor some modification
of prohibition to legalize the sale
of liquor. There is a fairly general,
if somewhat inaccurate, notion
abroad that college students totter
around semi-dcunk pretty much
all the time.
But the drys are still faced with
the fact the younger generation,
brought up under a prohibition re-
gime, still drink and do not like
the law. In 1919 the drys expected
to find some discontentment with
their pet measure; it was their
fond hope, however, that as its
manifold benisons became mani-
fest it would be cononized in the
hearts of the rising generation. So
far the reverse has transpired, and
the fight for prohibition, instead
of being half won with the advent
of; half a new generatibn, would now
seem to be half lost. In another
ten years, when a full generation
comes to maturity under the dry
regime, we can with considerable
confidence expect to see the Eight-
eenth amendment and the Vol-
stead act erased from the books.
It will be wondered what straw
votes on prohibition can accomp-
lish toward modification. We ad-
mit that they are unsatisfactory
instruments with which to attack
the drys, embattled as they are
behind legislative ramparts, but
they call the attention of the peo-
ple to the fact that they have not
voted on prohibition since 11919.
They also establish the face that
all over the nation the majority is
now in favor of modification or re-
peal. The drys have long refuted
the wets with medical opinion of
liquor unhealthfulness, economic
opinion of liquor's effect on effi-
ciency, and moral opinion of li-
quor's tendency to liberate the
libido. But of late they have shown
a noteworthy reticence to take
referenda of nonular sentiment for



For almost two years the
cherubical faces of the Cheboygan
High School Championship debate
team have been gloriously encased
behind the sacred glass portals of
our University Hall bulletin board.
For two long years our fair student'
body has even been subject to the
watchful eyes of these three gen-
tlemen who have apparently im-j
mortalized themselves for all time
by their sterling prowess at debate.
We must compliment Cheboygan
for the noteworthy achievement of
her three prodigal sons, but now it,
seems that their ability at keeping
their pictures before the gaze of
the student body is beginning to
rival their accomplishments as sea-
soned debators.
Now we wouldn't think of sug-
gesting that the Bureau of Bul-
letins, or whatever the name of
the committee on bulletins happens
to be, might have left those .pic-
tures posted through a mere over-
sight. No, it couldn't be an over-
sight, for a year and a half is too
long for an oversight; it must be
what some of our more harsh critics
might call lazyness, but we would'
never venture that suggestion.
The only endeavor, and a pious
one at that, of this brief article is
to bring before the eyes of our de-
linquent Bureau of Bulletins that
this apparently immortalized Che-
boygan Debate team has been hold-
ing its place in the University Hall
bulletin far too long, and with all
due respects to the city of Cheboy-
gan and her voluble offsprings we
do tender the suggestion that they
be removed from the public eye.

tentment and enact the role of the
shocked idealist, making the ques-
tion of Hedvig's legitamcy the A
theme for an artificial display of
emotion. Even with Gina's coffee
dripping from his chin, he at-
tempts to push his theme of indig- d
nation into the intense realms of;!
tragedy. To satisfy Gregers who
idealises him and to cater to his
own love for posing, he tries to.v
weave a drama of domestic dif-
ferences with a grand scene of
reconciliation for a conclusion.
Hedvig's sacrificial shooting of her j
wild duck would have supplied the I
moment of reconciliation; at the
discovery of the ghastly mistake, he
makes the house revererate with
his theatrical pathos. Kenneth
White does all this quite convinc-
ingly, at times boldly and subtly
risking over-emphasis that wel3

The part of Gregers Werle, gen-

little from Ibsen's self-flagellation,
from the bitter bolts of satire Ib- ~~

and considering this difficulty,
Robert Adams' work is quite suc- --
cessful. He makes Werle clear any-
way, as a loquacious salesman of

dal family in terms of moral tags 1
