The unemployed in Ann Arbor
are, supported, at least partially,
through such agencies as the Com-
munity Fund. The meeting was
called for the benefit of those fami-
lies which live in the outlying dis-
tricts, of which there are three, on
Miller Ave., on the Dexter road, and
in the small community of Platte.
The people of these districts are
alloted no aid from any source
whatever. No official Ann Arbor
organization can reach them. A
group of students from the Soci-
ology Department investigated con-
ditions of the unemployed families
in these districts, and found them
far worse than had been believed.'
It was to deal with such a' situa-
tion that the students of the Soci-
ology Department, with the support
of the churches of the town, called
the Union meeting. At that meet-
ing there were present a number of
experts on the unemployment prob-
lem. A most profitable discussion
sprang up, with ther result that a
five point program in which fra-
ternities and sororities might par-
ticipate was evolved. The five points
are:
1) The collection of food and
clothing by various houses.
2) A canvass of the houses and
of the people of the town for jobs
to be filled by registered unem-
ployed mechanics and craftsmen.
3) A Tag Day.
4) Group social work, the or-
ganization of Boy Scouts, Hi-Y
Clubs, etc.I
5) Personal social service.

SPRING
IS
HERE !
I have already said that, but this
statement supersedes all previous
statements on the subject. Spring
is here, and that's that, or at least
that is the general impression. Per-
haps it would sound better if I were
to say "that seems to be that."

CHICAGO'S CHANCE FOR
RETRENCHMENT
Now that Mayor Thompson has,
been discarded as the big boss of
Chicago, and Mr. Cermak has suc-'
ceeded ' him in an overwhelming
success, the voters of the Windy
City will have an opportunity to
discover whether or not the poli-
tical structure of their municipal
government is such that it is im-
possible to have order, or whether
the present incumbent was to
blame.
During the election campaigns,c
all kinds of promises were made.
These are only customary in the
midst of other political fan-fare.
Cermak promised to rid the city of
the Thompson machine which had,

1 While I agree with W. D. H. as
to the complete separation of the
functions of the student-body and
the City, and feel that the City
should rely on itself to remedy its
own troubles, I do feel that in this
instance the students might con-
tribute towards a worthy cause. The
much maligned B & G Boys, who
earn at the munificent rate of forty
cents an hour, appreciative of the
plight of the ,unemployed, were
able to raise from among them-
selves the sum of about a thousand
dollars. I feel that with their
example in mind it was not too
much to ask that the.students of
the University devote an hour of
their time, of which two-thirds is
ordinarily completely wasted, in
determining what might be done
about keeping a number of men,
women, and children from what
wouldabe termed by some starva-
tion, and that rather than 'seeing
the full quota of movies this week
they might contribute fifty cents]
or so toward buying the hungry a
full meal. R. T. Crane, Jr., '31.
One who is in any way informed
on the facts in the matter, would
have great difficulty in restraining
himself from an effort, toward cor-
recting the misapprehensions cre-
Iated by the literary efforts of F. M.,
'33, in Tuesday morning's Daily. It
should be noted at the outset that
the writer, so interested in the im-
provement of university scholar-
ship, has spoken with very little
knowledge of Michigan athletic con-
ditions.
In the beginning it, should be'
stated that only one member, not
three, of the Varsity swimming
team participated in the A. A. U.
meet. The other Michigan swim-
mers were members of the present
f ceshman squad, which is not al-
lowed to participate in intercollegi-
ftinnnfzcnr f i)r h n d of

late. I am sorry but this is con
trary to Daily Policy and we simpl
cannot do it. We modern poets fin
Daily Policy very trying at times.

Grid Banquet is over. The Gri(
Banquet is over. And we are goin
home. I didn't really mean that
about going home, because this sil-
ly column isn't half filled yet, bu
everybody else is going home and
swearing that they will never at-
tend another. It's a good thing thai
new people are coming in every
year into this grand old school o
ours. This fixes things so that eve-
ry year the Grid Banquet can suck
in a new quota of freshmen and
pay off all of their debts - that is
nearly all.

Good old Uncle Josie the
Burzel-Wurzel was presented
with the oil-can and made a
wise-crack about oil on troubled
fire-water or something equally
foul. It made me think that
perhaps the boys did justice
this time.
Senator Howell or Howl or some-
thing got up and made the state-
ment that the Mill-Tax cut wasn't
going thru. That just goes to show
that all those letters you wrote did
some good after all. Maybe now
you are recompensed for not seeing

And they still haven't got the
steam-shovel safely out of the.
Law Club basement. I person-
ally advocate taking it apart
and throwing it out piece by
piece. They have been digging
a great big ditch for it to run
out of for two days now, and
it isn't any closer to the surface
than it was before and they
have wasted an awful lot of
good dirt and steam in the pro-
cess.
FORGET THE GRID-BANQUET !
Grid-Banquet.
Fleeting are the hours before the
grand Spring Recess when every-
one, inspired to energetic efforts by
the mid-semester flops will carry
home a lot of books. Yes and carry
them back again, thus comprising
the year's book work.
FORGET THE GRID-BANQUET!
And soon the canoes will be on
the river and, unless a lot of re-
pairs have been made a lot of the
river will be in most of the canoes,
and the campus cops can start their
annual search for outboard motors
--and things.
FORGET THE GRID-BANQUET

Which brings us right back to
where we started from-spring

DESCRIPTIVE MUSIC
GLAZOUNOV: The Seasons: play-
ed by Alexandre Glazounov and
Symphony Orchestra: Columbia
Modern Music Album Set No. 5.
g
t' One of the interesting.phases of
- much of the minor romantic music
t of the nineteenth century was the
j constant experiment with Music's
- powers of realistic suggestion. As a
t result of a good deal of this experi-
T ment, an art, which really ought to
f have nothing to do with descrip-
tion, has drawn to itself such a
fund of ideas of association that it
now has a considerable capacity for
description.
Alexandre Glazounov's score for
a ballet "The Seasons" might be
considered the epitome of this ten-
dency. This score, splitting itself
into four sections, is a glittering
succession of illustrative pieces,
done with poetic delicacy and a
considerable talent for orchestra-
tion suggestive of Rimsky-Korsa-
koff's. The music is amazingly tri-
vial when compared say with what
the early Stravinsky did in the
ballet; but is is consistently plea-
sant and is given an ideal presen-
tation under Glazounov's own di-
rection.
'DETROIT THEATRE DURING
VACATION
Those who will be confined to
Detroit for the vacation may look
forward with eagerness or disap-
pointment to the following drama-
tic fare:
Wilson: "Subway Express," one
of last season's very novel melo-
dramas. This play enjoyed a nice
run in New York because it was a
Good murder melodrama,unclutter-,
ed by the conventional slamming
doors, etc, worked out with neat-
ness and speed in the very unique
setting of a moving subway train.
Cass: Again Detroit is being
offered a revival of "Blossom Time"
the romantic musical comedy based
on the life of Franz Schubert which
stimulated Sigmund Romberg to
some of his finest melodic writing.
Lafayette: "Bad Girl," Vina Del-
mar's quite absurd novel in drama-
tization sufficiently attractive on
some account or other to be spend-
ing its fifth week before eager De-
troit fans. The cast includes Wal-
lace Ford and Marjorie Peterson
who play very rollickingly.
Detroit Civic: "Crime," the melo-
drama written by Samuel Ship-
man and John B. Hymer, and pro-
duced successfully by A. H. Woods
some years back, is being revived.
It purports to be a romantic, thrill-
ing story of a daylight robbery of a
New York jewelry store with an
ultimate sacrifice by a gentleman
bandit in the interest of two young
lovers whom he envies, etc.
And that is all.
MURIEL DRAPER
Ann Arbor should be particularly
interested in the announcement of
the publication in two of three
weeks of a new book by Muriel Dra-
per. Mrs. Draper, as her amazing
book "Music at Midnight" charm-
ingly revealed, is the contemporary
world's best hostess, the only Eng-
lish-speaking representative of an
art which in certain French women
was genius. In a short visit to Ann
Arbor last fall she conquered the
town. Everyone scampered to see
the woman who in London before

the war used to go to the dressing-
rooms of musicians after their con-
certs, take them by the arm, lead
them to her home, and introduce
them to other musicians. The re-
sult was Music-whole nights rich

Since the beginning of time, cooking has
been a family affair-each family for itself; a
potful at a time. But the past decade has seen
a great change. The old family cooking pot
has gone the way of the old oaken bucket.
And in its place is a new American phenom-
enon: the twe/ve-bi/lion-dorlar pot.
In this pot, 55,000 factories are stewing and
brewing and preparing most of your food ...
and yours ... and yours-an annual produc-
tion of almost twelve billions of dollars.
These 55,000 plants represent America's
food industry. They are scattered throughout
the nation. They make everything from canned
foods to beverages, from ice cream to packed
meats. But in
every one of
them, a staff of Business men, industrialists and en
technical experts read the McGraw-Hill Publications

same problems The Business Week

the delectation of the public palate, the
nourishment of the nation.
Until two years ago, there was little coopera-
tion or interchange of ideas in this vast enter-
prise. Then a McGraw-Hill Publication, Food
Industries, came upon the scene . . . linked
together the members of the industry .. .
opened its columns exclusively to news and
discussions of their common problems ...
provided averitablemeltingpotforfoodideas.
In almost every industry, a McGraw-Hill
paper is occupying a role of like importance.
You will find such a publication aiding and
interpreting the industry you expect to enter.
