SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 1930.
Obviously President Hutchins has
in mind nothing mote or less than
the "University college," which has
just been indefinitely postponed at
Michigan. We believe that his es-
pousal of the project is a further
proof of his clear thinking along
pedagogical lines and of his ad-
ministrative vigor. It seems to :
augur an administration refresh-
ingly free from the grooved and
hidebound traditions of an out-
grown past and capable of making
distinctive contributions to the sci-
ence of higher education.
Especially we wish him success
in the development of what he
terms the "collegiate division," for
if it proves efficacious in eradicat-
ing the shortcomings of the literary
college at Chicago, it will stimulate
similar reorganization here. Our
faculty seems temporarily bedevil-
led by a conservatism that has
killed progress through its intent-
ness on resisting change, and blind-
ed itself to the bad in its palpitat-
ing anxiety to preserve the good.
In this condition Michigan has lost
the power of creating such a brain-
child as the University college full-
fledged, and must copy from
STILL A PUZZLE.
Eight of the twelve months now
completed by the Hoover regime
have been spent by the Senate in
debating the tariff bill, and the
ultimate result is still as much a
puzzle as ever. The eight months
have served only to expose a lack
of political leadership over the up-
The tariff measure was intended
by the administration to aid only
he' farmers, but the House and
Senate finance committees boosted
all the rates. However, in the Sen-
ate proper the bill was seized upon
by the coalition of Democrats and
Republican insurgents and, inde-
pendents for a general downward
revision that is now in progress.
The coalition is held together by
common enemies: Hoover and high
tariff, all of which is exceedingly
paradoxical since Hoover himself
does not want high tariff. Thus
the coalition is saving him from
the dilemma of having either to
offend the high-protection wing of
his party by vetoing a high-tariff
bill or to refute his campaign
promise of limited tariff revision.
Hoover may not have the oppor-
tunity to accept the coalition mea-
sure, however, for the Democrats,
not wishing to aid him, may turn
and defeat the bill, or else, and this
is more likely, n the House-Senate
committee conference the solidity
o f the House delegation may force
the rates up again. Yet the pos-
sibility of a relatively low-tariff
bill's passing both the Congress and
the President is large enough to
cause worry among the Old Guard
Republicans, who built the party
out of "protecting" American in-
dustries (though they are the most
advanced and stable in the world)
and collecting campaign funds. If
the party is to retain its potency it
must continue to "protect" indus-
try, so the Hoover decision on the
tariff matter is quite significant.
Hoover's choice here, as on other
matters, will not be based on party
interests but on what he himself
thinks best. That is his nature,
but the result is the antagonizing
of all groups in the Senate, but
one. That one is the collection of
30-odd Senators who believe only
in echoing the White House and
who have but slight power.
The President must unify enough
groups to form a majority before
he can have his projects enacted.
but he was never a strictly party
man and so cannot be a real party
leader. His supporters believe that
the approaching Congressional
elections will benefit him by re-
turning men more acquiscent to
his views, but history shows that
in elections Republican Congress-
men usually unite and bamboozle
!he country into 'sending them
back. Thereupon they split again
unless some political leader arises.
Hoover niust either drop some
of his ideals in favor of party unity
or else continue to find his way
blocked by the stampeding of an-
tagonized groups in the Senate.
And now that spring is about
here, we note the first double play
of the season-Tardieu to Chau-
temps to Tardieu.

we'll get it right some day.

I have, as I hinted, discovered
the identity of the lady who lost
the close-fitting hat. She was the
winner of Ann Arbor's Popularity

raspberry in color but black and
shaped, sewed and pasted to order
just for her. And cost tuh-WENTY

The advance notices of the Pen-

manicure would be a cent or
whether it would be charged for

it would cost a dime and ruin the
budget I've worked out.

Music And Drama

8:15, Play Production's last per-
formance of The Showoff by
A Review by William J. Gorman
"The great American comedy"
bumps along pleasantly enough
with itsfive-minute alternations of
drama and vaudeville to its amaz-
ingly preposterous ending. Kelly's
rather cautious ear for certain
speech cliches in his two main cre-
ations gains him the intellectual
confidence of his audience early in
the play. Everyone then assumes,
(with the remarkable susceptibil-
ity induced by the heat of the
playhouse) that Kelly is a great:
observer, a real student of human
nature. The result is continuous
laughter, too enthusiastic and cer-
tainly uncritical. But there is no
fighting a play that has made the
stock route for five years and sur-
vived two movies. It has won its
battles: thousands of people will
testify: but it's so amusing. But
one would like to insist that it is
not the type of victor Play Pro-
duction, however horrible its finan-
cial misery, should be presenting.
It is presented quite well though.
Harry Allen, as Aubrey Piper,
thrusting his blatant mediocrity
on long-suffering relatives, dotting
every five words with a raucous,
barber-shop laugh, is quite success-
ful. He has pushed himself into the
part, with its demand as to body
poses, loud unpleasannt voice, and
brave, dominating stage presence
quite cOmpletely. He also manages
to shade the bombastic bumptious-
Iness with the proper degree of pa-
thos: pathos that God should have
granted him as a character such
Mildred Todd, however, just
about sweeps the show. She has
an extremely intelligent (or it may
be intuitive) capacity for activity,
for doing things on the stage, for
moving. She is mature in this
play. There is never a dangling
hand, groping vaguely for someth-
ing natural to do. She has a whole
body in the show. To all appear-
ance she is completely absorbed. in
the part. Her vocal reading of the
long script the part of Mrs. Fisher
gives her is almost invariably suc-
cessful too. She is really grand as
the aged woman who has a per-
verse, unsentimental backdoor way
of being the tender mother, and a
unswerving solution for all life's
problems. There may be an objec-
tion that Miss Todd burlesques the
part. Of course, she does. But the
objection hardly holds, for the part
is obviously over-written, consist-
ing of nothing but a long string of
variations on: "Every sweater I
start I swear will be the last one"
and "I knew it, that rattlebrain
could never, etc.' Miss Todd has
had in the past rather a marked
tendency in all her character work
to- punh it off into burlesque be-
cause :desiring to realize all the
amusement possibilities of the
parts. Here it was exactly the
thing t do and the role is one of
the best things done on the cam-
pus this year.
Dora Vandenburg is quite ade-
quate as Clare, who smooths all the

THE MUSIC MASTER.
Beginning next Tuesday night,
the Detroit Civic Theatre is reviv-

around the life of Anton von Bu-
low, with the title role being taken
by Walter 'Sherwin, The kindly
German musician was quite thel
favorite of the older playgoer; his
reception by a younger generation
hardly familiar or sympathetic
with the unostentatious, sentimen-
tal gaiety of the older Bohemian
life will be more questionable.
The play is an episodic chopping
of the life of Von Bulow: his strug-
gle to keep his musical ideals even

sympathetic strike of the Musici-'

CHICAGO TO THE FORE.*
Yesterday Robert Maynard Hut-
chins, youthful president of the
University of Chicago,- added his
name to the list of university ad-
ministrators who are dissatisfied
with the presenijset-up of the coun-
try's literary colleges. His objec
tions are chiefly to the emphasis
on hoirs credit instead of mental
capacity, and to the lock-step sys-
tem of instruction whereby the
bright and dull are both carried
along in the same classroom. It will
be noticed that these are substan-
tially the objections voiced by The
Daily to Michigan's literary col-
President Hutchins also recog-
nizes the fundamental pedagogical
axiom that a student learns more
from solving an academic problem
on his own initiative than from
constant classroom goading, and
he emphasizesathe corollary of this
axiom, that a student will find
keener stimulation in a thorough
investigation of one subject than
in the acquisition of a lot of smat-
tering knowledge. As soon as a
freshman or sophomore has' dem-
onstrated his right to advancement
by his "reaction to the university's
opportunities and his own quali-
fications for advanced work," Pres-
ident Hutchins believes "he should
begin the study of some division of
knowledge of particular interest to
him and with which he is qualified
to deal." In his special field the
student should have a minimum
of instruction and put forth a
maximum of independent effort.
Most interesting in view of the
local situation is the way in which
President Hutchins proposes to ac-
complish these several desiderata.
He would split Chicago university
into three divisions: the collegiate
for general orientation, the univer-
sity division for specalized work,
and the graduate school for sub-
stantially its present purpose. The
business of the first division would
be to start the student on his edu-
cation chiefly by giving him en
