Republican control of Pennsyl-
vania is not, as has been inanely
proposed, in danger. Rather the
people are in danger of finding their
government in the mercenary grip
of a group of politicians who are
in the game for the pelf. No mat-
ter which man they chbose, they.
will be electing an heir to the po-
litical crown worn by Boies Pen-
rose, Matthew Stanley Quay, and
before him the two Camerons -

From what I hear tonight's Glid
banquet will be something to re-
member years after your diploma
has collected attic dust. For the
first time in the history of Sigma
Delta Chi's Michigan chapter the
entertainment will include a com-
plete vaudeville show, to be intro-
duced by a two-reel comedy filmed
by chapter members and repre-

Yesterday the free taxi to all

to keep a pretty good taxi schedule.

GRUNDY VS. VARE.

We are prone to think, after sur-
veying the political situation in
that Republican stronghold, Penn-
sylvania, that the day of machine-
elected, ward-bossed politicians is
not yet a thing of the past. When
death brought to an end the color-
ful despotism of Boies Penrose in
1921, there was no logical successor
to grasp the scepter and Pennsyl-
vania entered on a noteworthy pe-
riod of independence in politics.
Two of her ablest sons, George
Wharton Pepper and David G.
Reed, went to the Senate, and Gif-
ford Pinchot in a whirlwind cam-
paign won his way to the gover-
norship against the, opposition of
the leaderless state machine.
Pinchot, however, finished his
term and went off to shoot tigers,
and Pepper proved to be too little
of a politician to keep his seat in
the hurly-burly of electioneering.
This "Philadelphia seat," as it has
always been known, became the
chief prize in a squabble partly to
see what faction would represent
eastern Pennsylvania in the Sen-
ate, but mostly to see what man

Germany, under a fully mon-
archistic regime, passed an admir-
able system of social insurance
England, weakened by a long wa.
and subsequent industrial slump
by an imperfect yet effective sys-
tem carries all of her unemployed
weak, andtslick through the pres-
ent bad times. France recentl3
joined Germany in her social in-
surance, measure. Japan is faring
well. Even Russia, the great buga-
boo of the world, my unfortunate
native country, is developing the
most thorough co-operative sys-
tem of produce distribution, whicl
saved her from going completely
under during the last years of th
war and the "Great Russian Revo-
lution." Only China and the Unit-
ed States, the nadir and zenith of
modern industrial civilization, ex-
hibit apathy and stagnation in the
matter of developing social struc-
ture, general co-operation of th
people and, to put it bluntly, s
clear-cut public opinion and publi
action..
Does the United States ask its
citizens what to do with the Philip-
pines and Haiti? Why does a co-
operative movement, obviously
sponsored by the people and ob-
viously better suited for the con-
sumers' needs than a system of
distribution owned by private and
non-productive interests,. always
have great difficulty in being even
mentioned on the floor of state
legislatures of many states? Does
the University administration ever
put any question pertaining to the
governing of its students before
those students themselves for at
least an intelligent and thorough
discussion from both sides?
The public in this country was
led to believe that American pros-
perity was general and unlimited.
No one knew of and no one gave
any help or ear to the miners of
Pennsylvania or Illinois, to the tex-
tile workers of New Jersey and the
South, or to the millions of unem-
ployed throughout the country, un-
til recently the staid citizenry was
amazed by unemployment riots
and "treasonable" speeches of
hungry men. They found that in

RECENT VICTOR RELEASES.
..SCHUMANN: Carnaval, Op. 9
played by Sergei Rachmaninoff:
Musical Masterpieces Series Album
70.
Cortot some years ago did the
Carnaval for Victor. The New
York Times hints that this publi-
cation is done at the personal in-
sistence of Rachmaninoff, who has
made Schumann's set of pranks
one of his most consistent and i
popular offerings in recital all over
the country. In his appearance in
Hill Auditorium a year ago Febru-
ary, the Carnaval was prominent
on the program.
There's nothing of madness in
his choice. Schumann's evocative'
miniatures, carefully and sharply
cut and escaping no insipidity of:
( his later more expansive writing
through their brevity and concise-
ness, display to advantage the
more notable aspects of Rachman-
( inoff's technique and intelligence.
His technical facility making for
lucid treatment of the musical out-
line, proves Schumann's intricate
pianistic writing admirably clear.
His general approach, frequently;
sacrificing flexibility of phrase and
fluency of progression to an insis-
tence on chiselled articulateness of
individual notes, is successful and
adaptable to the projection of min-
iatures. Another habit of his-the
lingering phrases or over-nuanc-
ing-, often unrefined and grating
in his Chopin playing, is delight-
ful in short bits of program music.
All in all, one can understand
Rachmaninoff's insistence. The
present reproduction, for that, too,
is admirable.

YEHUDI MENUHIN: Adagio from
Mozart Concerto in G major and,
Sarabande and Tambourine by
Leclair-Sarasate: Record No. 7182.
This is the third record that the
youthful prodigy, just returned from
European concert work, has done
for Victor. There is no denying
the immaturities - moments of
coarseness in his tone, uncertainty
in his phrasing. Frequently he in-
dicates intention of noticeable ac-
cent, then, falters back into mere
mechanical correction. But these
indications, occurring frequently
in the Mozart Adagio and less so in
the other two which are mere
showpieces, give evidence of that
feeling'towards a musical intel-
ligence that is the important thing
in a prodigy. At least one approves
of Menuhin's choice of composi-
tions for recording when compared,
say, with Elman's. The present
record is quite the best of the three
so far issued by Menuhin.

THE LOWDOWN.
Sh-h-h-h! Somebody has pre-
- sented me with a mimeographed
e copy of the meeting of the literary
a faculty which took place March 3,
c and just to show you the bad effect
that late students have on the fac-
s ulty I'd like to reproduce verbatim
- the first two paragraphs of the
- minutes.
y "(Usual form of paragraph one):
Dean Effinger presided. Seventy-
eight members of the faculty were
f present.
"(Truthful paragraph one): The
meeting, announced for 4:10, was
called to order at 4:15 by Dean Ef-
finger, with forty members of the
faculty present. During the next
three-quarters of an hour thirty-
eight more faculty members strag-
gled in, so that by five o'clock sev-
enty-eight members were present."

This is what Walter Winchell
says of "Her Cardboard Lover,"
which is coming here April 21:
"For 15 years I have never seen or
heard an ovation such as was ac-
corded to the second act of M. Du-
val's gay prank.
In that case they ought to do
act two a couple of times and leave
the rest out. Anyway, I think I'll
see the show. I've never yet seen
a hard-boiled dramatic critic get
up and cheer and it ought to be
interesting.

Elman again indulges his habit
