"TRADITION FADES.. .,
Tradition has a bad habit of
fading. Its tendency to pass peace-
fully away is all right in many
cases where the tradition never
was anything to brag about, but
where you have a good, red-blood-
ed tradition such as the fall and
spring class games, most of us
would prefer to see it grow and
flourish.;
Class rivalry isn't what it used to
be when everyone i'n each class1
knew everyone else. The University
has grown too large for that. But
whatever spirit is left-even if the
freshmen only want the blood of
their sophomore fraternity bro-
thers--can be vented and all ex-
cessemotional steam can be blown
off at the games.
There is something ispiring
about a t'unch of mud-splattered
freshmen and perspiring soph-
omores. And th colorful crowd of
spectators standing on the shores
of the Huron watching the anxious
officials make ready for the next
tug is no less interesting than the
combatants themselves. We should

grieve when this sort of tradition
fades.
Yet when the meeting > to elect
class leaders for the games were
held yesterday, only a handful of
men were present and they were
not particularly enthusiastic. I no
more than these attend the games,
the affair will be a sorry one in-
deed.6
This year both classes have pow-1
erful incentives for turning out in'
full force; the sophomores to
avenge their only defeat in two,
years of competition, and the
freshmen to keep clean their slate'
so that they can set a record of+
four victories, last achieved by this
year's graduating class.
The class games are one of Mich-+
igan's best traditions. They have+
rarely been blemished by unpleas-
ant or unfortunate occurances and

It is a noble and democratic ges-j
ture to make higher education ac-
cessible to all; more money in the:
coffers means more beautiful build-
ings, and promises of large salaries{
attract teachers of higher calibre.
But it is possible, in achieving
these ends, that the very factors
which bring beautiful buildings
and more qualified instructors may
defeat the purposes of the univer-
sities. Opening the doors of our
colleges to everyone automatically
lowers the standards, and when we
come to take stock of the fruits
reaped. from our college education
we find that there are none. As
IAdams puts it, "instead of the
many enjoying the privileges of the
few, those privileges will have dis-
appeared for everyone."
Michigan seems to be approach-.
ing just such a turning point as
Adams describes. To augment fa-
cilities or not is the question. The
problem of the administration lies
in ascertaining the exact locality'
of that turning point, and then,
with it in mind, in taking steps in
the direction of opening the gates
of the University just so far. Be-
yond this point education for all
cannot successfully pass.

Monday night the Board in Con-
trol of Publications gave a ban-
quet in the Union at which aspir-
ing night editors stood on their
feet and made suggestions for the
improvement of The Daily. Most,
of them had the same ideas in
mind, so when night editor No. 6
got to his feet there wasn't muchj
left to talk about except the weath-
er and the possibilities of the New
Jersey peach crop.

in and, avoided tonality which is
the student pitfall.
Morin's interpretation of Schu-
mann's Sonata in G Minor was
unfortunate. With the stiffness of
an exercise in counterpoint, in an
auditorium which insists upon
twisting all echoes into an acous-
tic nightmare, he was slow in
warming, to his task. In the
{ Scherzo alone did he rise to the
spirit of the thing as though to a
challenge. Technically rigid and
engrossed in form, it is not unnat-
ural that, like most young artists,
he has not been able to forget his
hands and pass on to the larger
matter of artistry and interpreta-
tion.
! His Debussy was much superior;
the chiming romanticism of La
Cathedrale Engloutie, the vague
softness of the Doll Serenade, and
the pictorial phrasing of Gradus
Ad Parnassum; all furnished a foil
I for his technical abilities and a
turn for his rendition. It is not in-
ferred that Morin lost himself in
romanticism, but rather that'it was
more accessible to his present
stage of development.
The Respighi Nocturne was un-'
livened by any interest but served
as an interlude between exhibi-
tions. For if Morin's Debussy wasj
technical, his Prokofieff was pyro-
technical. From the first murky
1chords to the last one felt that he
i was in his element where both
form and matter were on a plane.,
The fiery difficulty of the Sugges-
1 tions Diaboliques is a challenge
which he met adequately enough. 1

Even as you are putting through your daily
telephone calls, groups of Bell Telephone ex-
perts are calculating your telephone needs for
five years, ten years, twenty y.ears from now.
It is their work to discover from all avail-
able facts-not fancies -how each state, city
and community will probably grow. 'these
facts are reduced to forecast charts, precisely
as an astronomer plots the course of a comet.

Thus central oCces are planned years be-
fore they are actually built. Underground
and overhead lines are laid out to fit future
as well as present needs. Expansion of ser-
vice is provided for.
Bell System planners virtually live in the
cities of the future. They play a vital part in
providing the best possible telephone service
for the least possible cost.
