Editorial Comment
(From Yale Daily News)
There are some undergraduates
who used the statistics of salariesR
in various fields as a key to theirI
choice of courses. If law enforce-l
ment and racketeering had been on
the bill of fare, the money-makers
would probably have signed up
solidly. But the chances are good
that only a few would have kept1
above the starving line in politics'
or a racket.
The money mirage is a convinc-
ing one, and therefore more dan-
gerous. It often leads men into
professions for which they are
mentally unequipped, when their
real success lies in another direc-
tion. It makes poor engineers of
promising authors and third rate
lawyers of potential physicists.
There is no individual promise to
men in any department. Their
future success depends entirely on
their ability to produce and does
not accrue from the department to
which they are attached. It is true
that the men who can produce
,raise the standing of the depart-
ment, but the department does not
mould their futures.
It is up to the individual to pick
out the course of study best adapt-
ed to his own abilities and eccen-
tricities. If he cannot do well in
such a course, his chances else-
where are still more misty.
There is also a group which deems
it the greatest of accomplishments
to have no Thursday, Friday, and
Saturday classes. What tragic
gloom there is in this. So bored with
college and their friends, so loath
to advance themselves by scholarly
pursuits, they must find their years
at Yale the most futile of their
Many students have chosen their
courses with consideration for their
own aptitudes and pleasures. It is
not even usual to find men taking
8:20 classes, considering the merits

When the movement to reconsti-'

A Review by Cile Miller.
Probably the best thing that can
be said of the Annual Exhibition of
American Art which is running in
Detroit from April 14 to May 17
is that the artists, represented are
independently American, and are
avoiding any imitation of the for-
eign schools.
The three divisions as they are
arranged with a memorial exhibit
of Julius Rolshoven, one of Arthur
B. Davies, and a group of sixty
paintings by various artists in an
adjacent room allow for an inter-
esting study, giving a glimpse of
what Americans can muster up
through their individual careers
and also a good cross section of the
range covered by the entire Amer-
ican school.
Julius Rolshoven's brush is as
aristocratically refined as his own
self-portrait. His work has the con-
fidence of the perfect technician.
His mastery of discrimination be-
tween different surface textures is
such that an observer has the tac-
tile reaction which is characteristic
of good sculpture. His compositional
arrangements are beautifully cor-
rect, and the women he uaints have
a delicacy of line in them that is
like the carving of a cameo. Yet
with all of this competent execu-.
tion of his medium I felt that
Rolshoven's work lacked something
to make it real art. The trouble is
that like a thoroughbred horse, his
art is over-refined, and he loses the
freedom of expression. One realizes
that he thrills to beautiful colors,
that he knows the beauty of form
as is obvious in his exquisite nudes.
But he paints with line, color, and
form, seldom dipping his brush into
,the strange oil of thought out of
which all contour can arise so
magnificently executed.
And now we come to Arthur
Davies who lacks much of the
superior technique which makes
for the beauty of Rolshoven's work,
but on the other hand his work
fairly sings with a lyrical quality,
the result of an incorporation of his
very spirit. It is jnteresting to go
from the civilized sophistication of
the former man's work to the ultra
freedom of this pagan, Arthur Dav-
ies. He uses the nude figure as a
cubist does his cubes. He capitalizes
the rhythmic motions of the human
form into ribbon-like patterns. And
always his work such as At Morning
which portrays a girl in a dawn-
soaked garden has the same quality
in the dreamy expression of the
dirl's face. And his landscapes in
their soft blues and greens re-echo
the fairy-like reality of his work.
And yet from all of his dreaminess
there comes a certain virility and
strength such as the Greek myth
has in its fantastic entity.
As to the sixty other artists who
exhibit their work, there are many

'types of art. Childe Hassam, diverg-
ing from his usual picturesque
landscape, produces an oil, The
Cobbler's Shop, which we recognize
as his, only through the character-
istic light effects. The composition
is made up of a continuous repiti-
tion of verticals, executed in watery
blues and greens.
Guy Pene su Bois is there also'
with his caricature-like exposition
of the metropolic sophisticate. And
Nura presents one of her amusing
pictures, The Little Pig Went to
Market which lacks her usual
piquancy and only shows her ap-
preciation of the child's fantastic
humour. In my opinion one of the
most beautiful works exhibited is
Eugene Spiechner's Mary Anderson,
a portrait study of a young woman
dressed in salmon browns against
a dull blue background. The study
is remarkable for the depth of feel-
ing which the artist has put into
the distant gaze of his subject. Nor
must one pass by too quickly the
View from Little Italy by Francis
Spieght who creates the feeling of
distance, builds up light and sha-
dow contrast of an evening sun,
