condition relative to drinking on
the campus bespeaks certain effi-
ciency to the methods of the police
force and the University discipli-
nary unit to check the use of
liquor. Yet at the same time con-
siderable credit shown be given to
the individual character of the stu-
dents. Drinking on the campus has
decreased and is at a low ebb not
so much out of fear of disciplinary
action as out of a decreased desire
to indulge.
It is one of the queer character-
istics of a sensation-hungry world
that only little attention will be
given to the committee's statementl
clearing the University students.
The thoughts of, not the investiga-
tion but the spectacular raids will
remain with the general public.
But in the minds of the thinking
people throughout the state, thel


University students will have
exonerated by the report.

The 'addition of highly trained
specialists to the medical staff to-
gether with the close cooperation
between the health service and the
Medical school has made the Uni-
iersity Health service one of the
most efficient and successful units
of its type in the country.
Proof of its efficiency and value
is clearly revealed in the annual
report of the organization which
shows that only seven students
died during the year. In general
society the number for a similar
age group is approximately 50, a
decided contrast.
Michigan students are especially
fortunate in having a health de-
partment which for such a small
sum is able to practically guarantee
health. The service is doing every
thing possible to aid the students
through the requirement that ex-
aminations be taken upon entrance,
in addition to advising special
examinations for many.
Through the present arrange-
ments a student may enter the
infirmary for a period of 30 days,
and, without cost, receive medical
treatment, nursing service, and
board. During this time the student
is visited twice each day by staff
doctors. When complications arise
specialists from the University hos-
pital, among whom are several
internationally known physicians,
are called into consultation. A
majority of the surgery cases are
referred to the hospital where the
costs are paid by the health service.
The University has just right in
pointing with pride to its health
service for probably no other col-
lege or university in the country
has a unit so well equipped, has
such a competent medical staff, or
has shown such a faultless record
as that at the University of Mich-

More than two months have pass-
-ed since the headlines first screamed
the news around the world that five
fraternities at Michigan had been
raided and that 79 students wereI
being held for investigation. In that1
time, the University has probably
received more unsavory publicity
than during any other similar peri-
od in the history of the institution.
The first reaction to this unprec-
edented action by the authorities
was one of shock. When more in-
formation about the spectacular-
ness with which the raids were con-
ducted, a certain degree of indigna-
tion and sympathy was substituted.
The total result of this has been,

the campus look like an irrigated
rice-field. It is time that the public
was let in on just what this tre-
mendous expenditure of hard-
earned taxes is accomplishing. I
have been appointed to tell them,
and, after a period of extensive re-
search, I was right on the verge of
answering nothing when the Pher-
ret whizzed in and informed me
that it was to keep the B & G Boys
happy and prevent them from
thinking up something worse to do.
When one considers the episode
of the oiled road back of A. H.
last year, perhaps this is a worthy
cause at that.
A possible use has been suggested
for these ditches, however, now
that they are all dug. The sugges-
tor thought that perhaps Newberry
Aud. would crumble into them and
get washed away by the famous
Ann Arbor Spring freshet. In view
of this possibility, I am in favor o
leaving them there providing, o0
course that those piles of dirt be
removed from the sidewalks. And
traffic be allowed to resume its
wonted flow.

A Note on "City Lights"
It is regrettable that Charlie
is our only clown. We have no one
with whom he can be compared,
and so he must withstand, alone,
the most severe criticism of critic
and crowd, from China to Paris. In
the old days of Keystone and Es-
sanay there were others: Hank
Mann, Chester Conklin, Fatty Ar-
buckle, Ben Turpin. The American
Public, in a moment of happy in-
tuition for which Hollywood has
ever since failed to give it deserving
credit, almost unanimously favored
the slapstick over other types of
movie offered at that time. The
camera could project objects in mo-
tion, and slapstick obviously pro-
vided the most adept and funniest
kinds of motion. But Capital, Pub-
licity, De Mille, Gloria Swanson and
Elinor Glyn finally established the
feature picture and Charlie's asso-
ciates began one by one to drop
out of sight.
Today there are hopeful signs.
The excitement over the first talk-
ies has subsided and the industry
is fast falling into the sanie straits
from which the talkie so miracul-
ously rescued it. In Paris audiences
walk out of American talkies in
disgust. In Detroit the three largest
first-run houses are again resort-
ing to elaborate stage-shows, the
big money's worth.
It appears that artistically as well
as commercially, Charlie has suc-
cessfully heaved his bricks into the
midst of the vested interests. The
opening comment in the talkies
in "City Lights" is good; a sensi-
tive eye and ear cannot help dis-
sociating a reproduced voice from
figures in a two dimensional pic-
ture projected upon a screen. But
the main point is that seeing what
the figures do is more important
than hearing what they say. Charlie
has used sound to guarantee his
musical score. Otherwise his movie
is in the tradition of his former
work. He is still the wanderer, re-
taining his gentlemanly dignity in
spite of all the humiliations the
world thrusts upon him. He is dig-
nified even when he is awkwardly
suspended in mid-air as the band
plays the national anthem and the
crowd looks on; when his curiosity
is aroused by a nude figure; when
he follows a cigar-butt in a Rolls-
Royce, or walks down Fifth Avenue
eating a banana. If we still remem-
ber how he dissected the alarm-
clock in "The Pawn-Shop," did
David and Goliath in "The Pi-
grim," and made the rolls dance
in "The Gold-Rush," we will re-
member his slide across the dance-
floor, the locker-room scene, or the
prize-fight ballet, in "City Lights."
His form has not changed: the
organization is good and the action
made as much as possible to seem
impromptu. The best example of
this occurs when thesblind flower-
girl throws the water in Charlie's
face. His camera is alert, working
as closely and as simply as possible;
it is especiall good in the scene
where the blind girl first mistakes
Charlie for the rich man getting
into his automobile. If "City Lights"
is better than any of his preceding
work (save perhaps "The Gold-
Rush") it is because Charlie's pan-
tomime is even more deft, more

suggestive, more conscious of our
eyes; because the camera is lettingI
us see more of his silent mimic
world. Yet we feel impatiently that
we will never see it all. That is why
he can come back year after year.
We will never see enough of the
world of Charlie Chaplin.

A Review
If last night's recital is repre-
sentative of his taste, appearance,
and talent, then Mr. Frank Bishop
(who is curator of the Detroit In-j
stitute of Arts and one of the city'sI
most popular teachers) must be
something of a public menace there.
For one thing, pictorially he is a
survival of a nearly defunct tradi-
tion which has worked havoc in the
bosoms of dictating dowagers and
stirred an understandable hatred
for the piano in the minds of ath-
letic young boys.
But that would be in itself minor
if his playing last night didn't seem
to be a pianistic translation-if I
may put it this way-of his flowing
locks. Consider, for example, the
bad taste of his drooping, moon-
lightish enunciation of the first few
measures of the Bach F Minor
Prelude. Chopin's F Minor Fantasie
