One of the factors which was
most responsible for the arrange-
ment of the publications office at
Michigan has been, not the actual
printing or editing of the work
which is already well-handled by
trained men and private compan-
ies, but the necessity of providing
some centralized storage and dis-
tribution point from which could
be mailed out all the University's
various publications and bulletins.
Much good can be done by the
proper handling of the University's
printing. Not the least of the pos-
sibilities of the new unit will be the
furthering of distinctive and ar-
tistic printing for the work which
will be done.

Lawyers' Club,
To the editor:
Your editorial of April 26th, en-
titled "Another Experiment Fails,"
came as a distinct surprise to me,
for though I knew that there was
some opposition to the work of
Glen Frank and Alexander Meikle-
john at Wisconsin, I did not be-
lieve that it was so widespread and
virulent. After reading Professor
Showerman's article, I can see why
the editorial was written. If that
article were the on1y possible
source of information, or if other
sources gave reports to the same
effect, I would agree that you were
justified in writing as you did. But
I find some of my contrary im-
pressions confirmed by other cur-
rent articles on the same subject.
The impression created by your
Seditorialwas that the experiment
was legislated out of existence by
a hostile faculty over the opposi-
tion of its' proponents. On the con-
trary, the sporsors believed that as
a five-year period of experimenta-
tion had been completetd, they
would be justified in discontinuing
it until some report on the results
could be made and studied. With
this in mind, Professor Meiklejohn
petitioned the faculty of the Liber-
al Arts College to suspend the
operation of the college for an in-
definite period of time. The ac-
tion was not regarded as a final
discard of the project.
For the other side of the problem
as regards the attitude of those
concerned in the project, I would
recommend that those interested
consult one or more of the follow-
ing articles:

Night Editor-BEACH CONGER, Jr.
-The establishment of a Univer-
sity press, as announced by the
Regents of the University at their
recent meeting, will fill a very defi-
nite need in the administration of
the University. But immediately on
the heels of the announcement
came considerable discussion, most
of it based on the lack of clear un-
derstanding of the proposal.
The University press was made
possible by the purchase by Dexter
M. Ferry, prominent Detroit alum-
nus, of the building which will
house the new unit. This plant
should not be confused with the
Student Publications building, con-
struction of which will begin about

Well, well, children, here we are
and no Dan Baxtter. A pretty
pickle, I assure you, almost a cu-
cumber. But Dan left at ten o'clock
this morning, because he claims
that his high school teachers were
coming out, and he was through
with being patted on the head.

Indignation Department.
While we're about being indig-
nant, we want to say right here
and now that we're not in favor
of having conventions in Ann Ar-
bor. In the first place, all those
badges, medals and ribbons fairly
make us reek with jealousy. It's
bad on the morale. Especially when
we looked at the Honors Convoca-.
tion program, and found out that
our names had been left off there
too, by accident, no doubt. (Lou
liar-editor.) A n d for another
thing, it isn't safe to use the side-
walks at all. Our fellow students
are bad enough when we are try-
ing to go the wrong way of the
diagonal at noon. But these high
school lads and lassies-tsk, tsk.
We heard about on engineer, who
thought he was all alone, sloshing
a bucket full of oil around. When he
turned around, he found out that
there was a flock of about forty
people all staring intently at him.
It's enough to unnerve any man,
or engineers for that matter too.
Joke Department.
And maybe we didn't witness a
nifty the other day. The foreman
came up from downstairs with a
story from the women's page which
was too long, and needed a deletion
of about two inches. Walking over
to one of the women's tryouts with
a prof in his hand, he asked her
to cut the story twO inches. "I'm
sorry," she is reported to have
answered, "But I haven't any
And maybe that doesn't consti-
tute grounds for continuing our
anti-coed campaign. Grrrrr.

Political Department.
We really had a lot of fun at the
election yesterday. We voted at
least three times, and are at pres-
ent waiting in fear, and awe, lest
the Student Council check up on
us. They certainly have a great
faculty for complicatedness. (Pretty
word, nest-ce-pas?) First they
have Daily editors out trying to
put the vote across (and that was
only because one of the editors bet
with one of his friends that the
vote would be 2,000) and then you
sign three or four papers, before
you can cast your vote. And then,
after you've voted, it takes about
fifteen minutes to get the ballot
into the box. As I understand it,
this vote means we will have no
more of that (or this, as the case
may be. Hurray!)

Play Production gave the first
performance last night of Herman
Heijerman's "The Good Hope," per-
formances of which will be given
tonight and every night next week
until Thursday. The play, a product
of that first-of-the century move-
ment in social drama better known
to us through the dramas of Haupt-
mann and, with a difference, of
John Galsworthy, is a slow-moving
but effective drama of the sea. The
old story of the men who fish and
the women they leave behind them
is deeply felt by the author, yield-
ing him, despite the leisurely pace,
some very rich drama. The produc-
tion is the best student work of
the year; a widely varied group of
characters aer all competently,
some briliantly, handled; and the
director's conception of the play is
consistently rich in the "intangi-
bles," rhythm and tone. The late-
ness of the play prevents longer
William E. Morgenroth molds his
clay with a very definite grace and
certainty of intention. His Brun-
hilde, a reclining nude female
figure although uncertain of divi-
sions in the sensuous surface, holds
charm in its languid grace. Graham
Shinnick stumbles on the problems
of form in his work but manages
to triumph with no small degree of
success by "getting across" the
spiritrof the thing which he wishes
to portray.
John C. Alehouse shows in his
work a sternness of conception, and
his modelling stands out because
of its versatility in planes, i. e., he
builds his figures up with an under-
taningof the valuation of inter-
secting planes. Mr. Hermon A. Mac-
Niel who was invited to act as the
critic for this year's display ex-
pressed a very favorable impression
of the works offered.
A Review by Cile Miller.
To visit the annual exhibition of
sculpture which was sponsored Sun-
day and Monday of this week by
the Division of Fine Arts and closes
today, was like viewing the virile
steel structure of an unfinished
building. Both hold much promise
of what is to come. Undoubtedly the
most satisfactory thing about the
entire show of students' work was
the evident understanding of the
unity of body po ' and spiritual
mood which the works exhibited.
There were the usual failings
which appear in immature work in
sculpture, but very fortunately none
of the works wavered under the
burden of a monopoly of these same
qualities. There were some who
lacked a clear distinction between
different sensuous surfaces; and in
fact on the whole this was the most
obvious deficiency in the exhibition
-the lack of tactile reaction. Oth-
ers fumbled in their manipulation
of form and came out with a slight-
ly flat result. Again there appeared
the common mistake of a slip in
the unity of proportion.
However, by no means do these
uncertainties in the handling of the
sculptor's medium condemn the
show as something merely greenly
amateurish. There is too much clear
conception and power of convic-
tion in all of the work to dismiss
it with a shrug-of-the-shoulder at-
titude on the grounds that it is the
doddling of beginners.
More than this there were few
pieces exhibited which could be
qualified as mere copies of the
model; in each work there appears
something which is individually

that of a young artist's personality.
Undoubtedly Elaine Brockman, a
graduate student, has the greatest
mastery over her medium and
hence the greatest power of real-
izing her original conceptions. Her
Brothers, a composition including
the nude figures of two youths
seated has a simplicity of design
which demandts attention, and the
understanding of the positions of
the body as instruments for the ex-
pression of mental attitudes stands
out in the work. Helen V. Bailey's
Bondage commands one's attention
for the sweeping lyrical quality of
its composition.
Arthur Hackett of the University
School of Music will, fill his fourth
engagement with the New York
Oratorio society when he will sing
the tenor role in the annual per-
formance of Bach's B Minor Mass
under the direction of Albert Stoes-
sel. The Mass will be sung in its
entirety. Professor Hackett has also
been engaged to sing the tenor role.

ield Massachusetts May Festival
