assistance of a cabinet, consisting
of the heads of departments, as
well as administrative committees,
each of whom is responsible for
the proper administration of his
particular function. Functionally
independent units have been set
apart, there has been a general de-
fining of responsibilities according1
to their departments, and when the
necessity arises there will probably
be an. even greater separation of
powers and definition of duties, re-
taining those of general policy and
broader questions in the President's
This much for the administrative
machinery in general. In its rela-
tion to the students, no particular
reforms have been innovated, the
present ones having undoubtedly
been considered sufficient. A sec-
ond reform, perhaps more vital and
pertinent to a certain group of stu-
dents, was introduced last year,
namely deferred rushing. Statistics
have shown that students entering
colleges and universities today are,
on the average, younger than fresh-
men of the past. They are held to
be in need of more expert advice
more guidance and assistance in
making their decisions than the
entering students of ten or fifteen
years ago. It is hoped that the old
system of "hot-boxing," and strong-
arming will be eliminated by the
provisions of this new ruling, which,
however, has only provided the
basic legislation for the proposed
scheme. The details have yet to
be worked out in a satisfactory
manner, which can be done only'
after a survey has been made of
rthe results of several years under
)he new experiment.
The above two propositions have
dealt with the University in itself,
and its relation with the students.
A third point remains, its relations
with the outside world. In an at-
tempt to further the contact of the
institution with other centers of
learning, or people interested in
educational methods, the establish-
ment of a committee for a Uni-
versity press has been authorized.
Larger Eastern universities all have
their own presses, publishing the
latest scholarly treatises on current
problems, written by members of
their own faculties. Previous to the
authorization of this committee,
the only contact the University had
with outsiders was through the
small bulletins published from time
to time, containing mostly infor-
mation as to academic matters, a
few professorial works, and reports
of conventions; the broadcasting
studio, and the extension service.
The expansion of these methods
If bringing the University before
the public, are however, limited.
Professors who have written vol-
umes, both of popular interest as
well as textbooks, have had them
solicited from outside publishers.
With proper appropriations, this
new administrative committee will
be able to establish a press to care
for all the University printing, as
well as publish from time to time
books in the academic field by au-
thorities, an undertaking which will
greatly enhance the academic re-
putation of Michigan. The report
augurs well for the future, yet does
fot lead to too great hopes and
2xpectations such as might be en-
ertained for a privately-endowed

GOES ON RECORD
as saying something for the first
time since its inception nobody
cares how many years ago. Having
put off for a number of years the
minor considerations of deferred
rushing and fraternity drinking
and disturbing the peace until theE
faculty finally was forced to stept
in and save Michigan from becom-
ing the playground of a nation, this
august body has stepped boldly
forth and committed itself at last.

I like their fine humanitarian
spirit, though. It took the cry-
ing needs of the innocent
pledges-who don't have to1
join fraternities if they don't
want to undergo some slightt
castigation for the good of their
souls-to arouse the boys from!
their stentorian slumbers and
get them to make statements
to the effect that no more may
a neophyte destroy property or,
public disturbances (see word-
ing of notice) without getting
his house into perfectly terrible
trouble with the all-powerful
Interfrat Nonentity Assn.
I prophesy that this ruling will
result in a concerted effort on the
part of humorous-minded pledges
to destroy all the property and pub-
lic disturbances they can lay hands
on just to see the fun. I wish I were

I am deeply grieved to have
to tell you that it is against the

that could antagonize our ad-

Amid the shouts and bustlings of
those attending the uplift move-
ment at Barbour Gym the other
night the following came to my ears
wafted gently through the din like
one clear g-minor chord wrapped
in a yard of pink taffeta.
It seems a certain Betsy Barbour
Flash was selling tickets to the
Chamber of Horrors. She approach-
ed one callow youth and, with a
charming smile, "Won't you buy a
ticket to the Chamber of Horrors?"
"No thanks," came the ready
reply (I suspect he had been hang-
ing around waiting to pull the nifty
for an hour or so) "I've dated most
of them, so to speak, and the nov-
elty has worn off."
A frank statement indeed.
Were it not for the ffact that
I have implicit trust in your
veracity I should be strongly
inclined to doubt that pleasant
tale. I would not have believed
that a man so persistent as to
go beyond his first two or three
dates on this campus existed in
these days. A gent that will
pursue futile searches with
single-mindedness like that is
an anachronism (or should I
say katachronism?) . . . What
a team he and Diogenes would
have made in Vaudeville!. . .

song "Vaudeville I do When

As Ever Inconceivably Yours,
USIC AND DRAMA
AS YOU LIKE IT
One of the most beloved of
Shakespeare's plays received such a
vivacious mounting last night by
Sir Philip Ben Greet and his play-
ers that a capacity audience was on
the point of cheers. "As You Like
It" is Milton's "sweetest Shake-
speare, Fancy's child." The most
ardent Shakesperean would n o t
contend for it as drama. Indeed,
Shakespeare himself by his title
acknowledges unashamedly that he
is writing in the tradition of pas-
toral romance deriving from Lyly,
which precludes any objection to
the motiveless quarrels, motiveless,
reconciliations, transparent d i -
guises etc. These people are in a
world where they "fleet the time
carelessly, as they did in the golden
world" and Shakespeare's limpid,
exquisite poetry and his intellec-
tual agility in combination sustain
this joyful world. The moralizing
of the banished Duke, the skillful
opposition of the melancholy Jac-
ques, the bitter anatomist of life,
and Touchstone, "using his folly
like a stalking horse" affordsan in-
tellectual sub-structure, subtly bear-
ing up the fantasy.
Ben Greet's production-princi-
pally by its speed and the excell-
ence of the reading, which never
once showed by false emphasis that
the speakers knew not of what they
were talking and always displayed
a keen perception of blank verse
values-realized this play almost
Ideally. Sir Philip himself was an
interestin'g Jacques, though his in-
terpretation made him rather too
doddering and amiable and less a
"dark" contrast and less as Hazlitt
saw him, "the only purely medita-
tive character in all of Shake-
speare." Perhaps the outstanding
performance was that given by
Russell Thorndike as Touchstone,
who was able to go the delightful
limit in buffoonery and still com-
municate the clown's unsurpass-
able shrewdness and Shakespeare's
satire through him on the shallow-
n e s s of court convention. Mr.
Thorndike's technicaly agility as an
actor was delight in itself. Rex
Walter's Orlando and Enid Clark's
Celia were alike vivacious and in-
But of course, ultimately the
play's fame rests on one of the most
fascinating women in all litera-
ture, the epitome of romantic girl-
hood, alive with a quick charming
humour and suggesting the depths
of womanly instinct. Rosalind, as
it is one of the most grateful, is
one of the most difficult of all act-
ing parts. It requires a sound and
abundant feminine sense of com-
edy. Its difficulty lies in the fact
that it is practically a solo part.
There is no particular strength
given Rosalind's position by any-
thing in the action, even by Or-
lando's love. The actress must rely
on her lyric grace almost entirely.
There must be loads of fun in her
as a personality and there must be
an elaborate technic to concentrate
that personality into iridescent
comedy over a period of three
hours. Slur the values of Rosalind
and probably a whole production
of "As You Like It" becomes tedi-
ous. The part requires genius. I
hope to have suggested the nature
of Miss Hutchinson's achievement
as Rosalind. Her rendering always
had grace, gaiety, tenderness; and
at times, that positiveswitchery of
humour that the best actresses
must have brought to the part.
A. A. Milne, whom the more naive
'among us know for his amazing,
Pooh Pooh works, may be studied
from a different angle at the De-
troit Cass next week. The airiness'
and conscious good humor of all
his verse, is forsaken here for a
sweetness which drew caustic com-
ment from certain reviewers and
won the hearts and praise of many
others. Which possibly is not say-
ing anything too definite. Which is
The play is "Michael and Mary"
which managed to survive the
dreariest dramatic season New York
has seen (last year).
Madge Kennedy who is well
known in Detroit and a competent
actress for all that, plays the Mary.
In different portions of the play she
.appears as "a deserted wife facing
starvation; as the idealistic com-
panion of an aspiring young novel-
ist and finally as the wife of the
writer during a period that brings
them both the jolt of despair and
the glow of happiness."

with it the realization that, al-

On the whole, the policy seems
to have been one which will enable
the University to deal with the fu-
ture more effectively than it has
been able to do with the present
idue to the traditional stands of the
past non-corporate University ad-
ministrative methods. The primary
step in the furtherance of this end
has been the adoption of the cor-
poration form of administration.
There has not been a crying need
for a new organization, nor has the
University been in desperate straits
due to the old form of organiza-
tion, but it was recognized that a
growing institution such as the

either necessitate an enormous ex-
pansion or else a revision of the
old system. By the latter method,
now adopted, a sharper line has
been drawn between the various ad-
ministrative functions of such a
large organization as the Univer-
ity, and a separation of duties into
their respective departments.
The old system tended too much.
According to the report, toward
centralization of duties and respon-
sibility in one point, namely the
President's office. Many trivial de-
tails, which could have been settled

pite status in any department. For
