First, more money will be needed
for any radical improvement; sec-
ondly, there must be a more liberal
extension of academic freedom
through a wider integration of the
fields of knowledge and research.
Further, on this liberal basis of
scholarship there must be encour-
aged a more intensive program of
study of human problems; and last-
ly the results of this study must be.
disseminated more widely by means
of adult education through exten-
sion institutes and universities.
Pre-views of the problems pre-
sented by Dr. Hutchins seem to be
alike in their condemnation of any
plan which attempts to educate
the outside world before (to quote
the Yale News) "the undergraduate
has been taken care of." There is
nothing in Dr. Hutchins book which
places graduate or non-student
education first, ahead of under-
graduate training, however.
The theory behind extension edu-
cation toward a better appreciation
of the business world by those who
are already in it is all right in its
place, but perhaps Dr. Hutchins has
misjudged its value. The under-
graduate is, after. all, the primary
importance in our modern educa-
tion. After he is taken care of,
nothing can be said against exten-
sion to the outside world, but his
welfare must first be assured.
Contributors are asked to be brief,
confining themselves to less than. 300
words if possible. Anonymous com-
munications will be disregarded. The
names of communicants will, however,
be regarded as confidential, upon re-
quest. Letters published should not be
construed as expressing the editorial
opinion of The Daily.

It seems that last time he
threatened to raise the taxes
(urged on, it is alleged, by the
Ann Arbor Landladies league)
on fraternity houses, they came
right back at him and threat-
ened to deed their houses to
the University. After a period
of hard thought he evolved a
bill making all University own-
ed club-houses of all sorts with
the exception of faculty and
honor society groups admit
anyone on the payment of a
twenty-five dollar fee.
Something he never thought of
I'll bet is that he was raising the
price and depriving a lot of de-
serving people from joining a fra-
ternity. Why, the last time the only
fraternity man I know saw twenty-
five dollars he woke up just in
time to put his arm back into joint
before his 8 o'clock.
Another thing he couldn't
have thought of is the fact that
no one would join any place
where they couldn't at least
pretend that they were picking
out the men they were going to
And another thing is that he very
likely never even suspects how silly
spite legislation can look.

As a defender of personal
liberty and the innate right of
man to pick out his own tooth-
brush and roommate without
the aid of Mr. Pack I take this
opportunity to suggest thathit
might be a good idea to gather
together and whiz up to Lans-
ing one of these days in a body
each bearing in hand one stone
from Newberry hall and place
them gently but firmly in Mr.
Pack's lap, thus killing two
birds withdone stone or rather
getting rid of one bird and a
whole lot of stones that we
didn't want anyway.
The Pherret just wandered in
looking a trifle frazzled to report
that the B & G Boys have discover-
ed a lovely new kind of soap that
is strongly perfumed and all over
the floor of the campus buildings
whereupon they are too. I don't
quite understand this, but he says
so and I guess it must be.
The lecture-recital to be given by
Henry Cowell, American composer
and editor of "New Music," is to be
given Friday afternoon at 4:15 in
the Mendelssohn Theatre rather
than Thursday evening as an-
nounced previously here. Today's
paper contains the announcement
that Mr. Cowell has just received a
Guggenheim Fellowship in Music.
THE "ST. MATTHEW PASSION"
Two performances of Bach's
greatest oratorio will be offered in
Orchestra hall on Wednesday and
Thursday evenings of this week by
the Detroit Symphony Choir of 250
voicese the Detroit Symphony or-
chestra, three assisting choral bod-
ies and nationally known soloists,
all under the direction of Ossip
Gabrilowitsch, who has conducted
performances of it for several years
in a row. Three trained choral
bodies will sing the responsive
choral passages which were sung
by the congregation in Bach's day.
The Main choral body has been
training since last Fall. The soloists
will be Margaret Matzenauer, con-
tralto; Jeannette Vreeland, so-
prano; Richard Crooks, tenor; Nor-
man Eddy, baritone; Fred Patton,
bass. Chandler Goldthwaite, who
has played the important organ
part for Mr. Gabrilowitsch several
times, will again be brought from
New York. Mr. Gabrilowitsch will
conduct from the keyboard of the
piano, which he is called upon to
play at certain occasions in the
Needless to say, the above facts
mean that Orchestra Hall offers a
pretentious and careful perform-
ance of one of the greatest of all
choral scores. Even with extreme
caution, one can predict an unfor-
gettable musical experience.
SPECIAL WEDNESDAY AFTER-
Palmer Christian, University or-
ganist, will present a special pro-
gram of Good Friday music on the
Frieze Memorial Organ, Hill Audi-
torium on the afternoon of Good
Friday, April 3, at 4:15 o'clock.
This program will take the place
of the usual Wednesday afternoon
recital, the program for April 1
being omitted. The cordial appre-
ciation and response on the part
of the public to Mr. Christian's
offering of Good Friday recitals in
past years has encouraged Mr.
Christian to continue this plan this
year. Good Friday afternoon is a
most fitting opportunity to listen
to appropriate music on this most
sacred of days.
Mr. Christian has built a pro-
gram for this occasion designed to
follow a definite sequence in the
mood up to the "Crucifixion" from
Marcel Pupre's "Passion Sym-
phony," following which the most
unusual item on the program a
Fugue, Canzone and Epilogue for
organ, violin and women's quar-
tette will be heard, the text for the
latter being "I believe in the Life
everlasting." The final number will
be a presentation of the famous
"Good Friday Spell" from Wagner's
For the women's voices Mr.
Christian will have the assistance
of Laura Littlefield and Thelma
Lewis, sopranos, Gwendolyn Zoller
and Annis Dexter Gray, contraltos
and Wassily Besekirsky violinist.
The general public with the ex-
ception of small children is cor-
dially invited but is respectfully re-
quested to be seated on time.

Robert Maynard Hutchins, Chi-
oago's youthful university presi-
dent and former dean of the Yale
Law school has written an article
on "The University of Utopia" for'
the next issue of the Yale Review
in which he considers the relation
of higher education to the prac-
tical field of sociology and econo-
people of this district as I think
they should be represented. If I am
in the wrong, I hope I will not be
re-elected-failure to be re-elected
will not cause me a moment's con-
cern one way or the other.
Possibly, however, when the pub-
lic hearing on my measure is held
at Lansing and communications are
read from fraternity alumni prais-
ing my bill, The Daily will realize
that there are two sides to the
question, even an "earth-worm's"

it is this: In future editorials on
the subject, why not base your pro-
nouncements on a detailed study of
the tax rolls? Facts and figures,
after all, are much more convinc-
ing than heresay.
