two of the prominent campus fra-
ternities, at the moment when com-
petition was the keenest, took it
into their heads to withdraw from
the Council, the others would be,
forced to do the same in self-de-
fense, and the organization would
be in the same situation in which
it now finds itself.
These events on the Columbia
campus augur none too-well for the
success of the new rushing system
which will be installed next year.
But, due to the action of some of
the more active members of the
Council, a remedy has already been
proposed. The approval by the
Senate Committee of the revised
constitution, which entrusts the
largest measure of jurisdiction over
fraternities to the Council through
its judiciary committee, if accom-
panied by compulsory jurisdiction
over all general fraternities, may
straighten out the present difficul-
ties. But only several years under
the new experiment can reveal its
'faults and good points to the cam-
pus, as it did at Columbia.

Some of us can remember, in the
days prior to Amos and Andy, when
the children's bedtime was figured
by the clock. Detroit News.
Campus Opinion
Contributors aresasked to be brief,

words if possible. Anony mou~s com-

In these times of stress when a
great economic war is being raged,
the student in universities and col-
leges like the laborer in the cities
has his economic problems to face.
And as in the cities, when the
worker is being disregarded by the
capitalist, so in the University is
the student left to struggle through
this economic chaos as best he can.
An example which the writer be-
lieves to be typical in principle
came to his attention recently. I

It seems that a certain amount
of invidious comment was aroused
by the fact that I made bold to
state in my last issue that today is
Thursday, I suppose that the
trouble all arose becausepeople
kept putting ofI the evil time of
having to read the Daily until the
last possible moment and thus
made a liar out of your perspica-
cious Uncle Dan. However, here is
my apology and I certainly hope
you fellows will be good enough to
forget all about it.
k * *
There was a rather nice headline
in yesterday's Daily which I think
will bear repeating. It goes like
............Which, not unnatur-
ally, brings up the question of what
they are going to do with their
hard-earned Mendelbaums n o w
they have the lovely things.

It has been some time since
we have had a good old expose
of the conditions prevalent a-
round Newberry Hall. They are
practically the same as at the
last report except that about
three week's worth of dust has
seized the golden opportunity of
collecting on my seat which
has, unaccountably e n o u g h,
been unoccupied of late.
* *
This fact, however, to the best of
anyone's judgment has had no ef-
fect on the quantity of dust still
left in the atmosphere. Neither is
there any sign that ay has be-
come displaced from its roosting
spots around the ceiling.
And furthermore I say that.
something has got to be done
about it! I don't care if the leg-
islature is jealous of the fact
that at last after untold effort
on the part of many many able
men the University is becoming
capable of turning out more or
less educated people who make
the aforesaid legislators look
silly. Let them go ahead and
cut their nasty old Mill Tax!
Let them do away with Mills
altogether-whoever he is-but
let them only remember this-
and you too Mr. Administrator-
that the Mills of God grind slow
and if you aren't slow nobody
ever was.
If you thing you can get away
with browbeating the members of
this enlightened and educated gen-
eration, you are'barking up the
wrong shin, that's all! I have
It isn't the Heat, it's the up-
* * *
And while we are slightly off the
subject of Newberry Auditorium it
might be opportune (mind you,
I'm not saying that it is-just an
idea, that's all) to bring up the sub-
ject of what in the world do they
think they are doing with that
steam-shovel out in Betsy Barbour's
side yard? Suggestions as to its
probable uses will be welcomed with
our very best waste-basket. Send
them along in, fellows, I love it!
This is infinitely superior to the
Pherrets's idea that it is for the
Betsy Barbour Bearded Ladies to

throw their- old razor blades into.
This, I think, is obviously fallaci-
ous.-Isn't it?

The Theatre Guild's production
of Eugene O'Neill's strange drama
comes to the Whitney Monday night
for a one-night stand. There are
difficulties in the production of
these nine acts which will almost
fatally mitigate against any sort of
successful amateur performance. So
that this may be the last time in
some years that "Strange Inter-
lude" will be available for local au-
A good deal of the hullabaloo
about the form and technique of
the play-that is, all the ponderous
critical maneuvering about the de-
sirability of the soul - revealing
asides"- has been thrashed over.
And then, too, the possibility of
really judging the play is no longer
smothered by the passionate yearn-
ing for a great American play, which
caused it to be seized upon so eager-
ly four years ago. So it may really
be possible Monday night to get a
good perspective on O'Neill's at-
Whatever one thinks about it, the
story of a trinity of male units of-
fering up all their life-food to pro-
vide an emotional banquet for the
viciously hungry Nina is tremen-
dous; and O'Neill's telling of it is
characterised by that impressive
honesty which has made him Amer-
ica's best dramatist. It is a drama
one must not only have read but
seen. The performance at the Whit-
ney Monday night begins at 5:30
sharp with a dinner intermission
between 7:40 and 9; then the play

The Detroit String Quartet, which
has been g a i n i n g considerable
prominence for its attention to
modern chamber music, will present
1the last of the series of programs
sponsored by the Chamber Music
Society of Ann Arbor. Their pro-
gram, originally s c h e d u1e d for
March 30 has been changed to
March 25 and will be given in the
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Half of the program will be de-
voted to a first Ann Arbor perform-
ance of Schonberg's Sextet for two
cellos, two violas, and two violins.
The Quartet will be assisted in this
composition by two other members
of the Detroit Symphony Orches-
tra. The other numbers on the pro-
gram have not yet been announced.

Mr. Gabrilowitsch conducted the
Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra
in a long program in Carnegie Hall,
New York, Tuesday of this week.
The critics who last year treated
Mr. Gabrilowitsch with some hos-
tility seem to have agreed that this
week he was in a brilliant mood.
The only dissenter was Pitts San-
born who thought the performance
of Strauss' "Don Juan" was "par-
ticularly explosive, disjointed, ill-
Olin Downes' remarks had con-
siderable interest because they seem
to contain a good definition of cer-
tain of the more characteristic
things of Mr. Gabrilowitsch's baton.
Mr. Downes owned to "a sneaking
pleasure" in "hearing an interpre-
tation of a well-known classic work
depart from the established tradi-
tion." Mr. Gabrilowitsch, it seems,
"worked his will with the Haydn
London Symphony No. 2 in D major
and if this was treason, the classi-
cists must make the most of it." . .
Mr. Gabrilowitsch was sometimes a
little heavy-handed and opaque in
orchestral tone when reading this
symphony, but he did not fail to
give it vitality, freshness, a pleasing
waywardness,nandaemotignal sig-
nificance. One can question his
tendency at times to sentimental-
ize: by and large we found this
a stimulating and entertaining per-
formance of a delicious symphony."
"His reading of Straus' Don Juan
was only one of the instances where
this conductor, interpreting famil-
iar music, did so with the fresh
approach of one revealing a score
for the first time with heart and
soul in the business . . . the patches
in the piece disappeared; the fierce
devouring fire of a tumultuous and
intrepid spirit was in the perform-
Mr. Gabrilowitsch performed in
addition the symphonic poem "Vivi-
ane" of Ernest Chausson, the pre-
lude to Moussorgsky's "Khovant-
china" and Dukas' "Sorcerer's Ap-
prentice." Of the last Mr. Downes
said: "Mr. Gabrilowitsch was com-
pletely in his element, master of
his score and his men, exulting in
the extravagant abandon, yet sure-
ness, of the prancing, glittering or-
chestra. And the audience applaud-
