SWING-OUT OR PASS-OUT?
T'he University has threatened
ain this year as in the last two
ors to discontinue swing out cer-
onies if members of the senior
iss do not conduct themselves
cording to the conventional man-
r.
Several years ago the traditional
arch was brought to the atten-
n of the authorities when a
mber of students made them-
ves conspicuous due to the influ-
ce of liquor. Since that time the
iversity has annually declared
at a re-ocurrence of such action
uld result in abandonment of
e tradition.
Vichigan is losing its traditions
ogether too fast for the mem-
rs of the graduating class to
ike an enibriated swing out to-
y before entering the portals of
.1 auditorium. The campus has
countered many unfortunate ex-
iences this year along this line,
d for the year t terminate in
h a manner would not only re-

et on the University and the
dent body, but would be unfair

Ann Arbor by their fathers and
sir grandfathers before them.

sterility. The occasion for this pro-
test is the singularly inept review of
the recital of Mr. Raymond Morin.
I have been astounded before by
the apparent sparsity of Mr. Gor-
man's knowledge in the fields upon
which he treats. In this instance he
has outdone himself.
There is no space here for ade-
quate review of the individual num-
bers, but aside from the decidedly
shaky treatment of the Pathetique
of Beethoven, Mr. Morin dealt with
his well-balanced program in an
able manner. Immaturity in a stu-
dent recital is to be expected, but
even this had little place: The
greater part of the observations in
Mr. Gorman's review, more in the
nature of spleenful diatribe than
intelilgent criticism, were entirely
lacking in significance. One rather
suspects Mr. Gorman of having
thumbed through the descriptive
passages to be found in the pro-
grams of symphony concerts, and
of applying the phrases to be found
there to his own efforts. In any case
one wishes that he would seek to
extricate himself from the mazes of
his own vocabulary elsewhere than
in the columns of the Daily.

Editorial Comment 1
CONNING THE CAMPUS
(From The Michigan Alumnus)
Inra recent address in Ann Arbor,
President Ruthven, speaking to the
broad subject of "The University
Housing Problem," indicated the
general principles on which the ad-
ministration probably will proceed
in handling this phase of student
life at Ann Arbor.
"I believe our plan is good for us
at this time," constituted his sum-
ming-up. It was an indication that
the University has no intention of
making any radical changes in the
plans pronounced some years ago.
This scheme, in its general out-
line, calls for the housing of all
first year men and as many women
as possible in dormitories. The
alumni already have bent them-
selves to the task of providing such
residences for these two classes of
students. The University of Michi-
gan Club of Detroit has selected as
its project in th Ten-Year Pro-
gram the erection of the necessary
residence halls and already one of
them, Mosher-Jordan Halls, is in
operation. The campaign to make
possible the dormitories for fresh-
men will be staged by the Detroit
alumni as soon as industrial condi-
tions permit.
T Further, the scheme provides for
the housing of a large proportion of
the students in the homes of Ann
Arbor citizens. This practice has
existed from the very inception of
the University and was the logical
outgrowth of the patterning of the
University of Michigan upon the
German universities which have
stressed the independence of stu-
dents.
"Only reluctantly," stated Dr.
Ruthven, "have University author-
ities yielded to pressure by increas-
ing rules and regulations, but the
student body like other things is
subject to change and with younger
men and women coming to college
the insistence of anxious parents
that the students, particularly the
women and freshmen, be housed in
dormitories, is naturally increasing.
Since, however, the University has
continued to exist in a relatively
small community free from material

distractions of large modern cities,
it has not yet become clear that a
dormitory system should be install-
ed for all students. While it is ap-
parently necessary to house all the
women and all freshmen in Univer-
sity-owned buildings with the least
possible delay, it would seem to be
desirable for the University of
Michigan to continue to give to
older men, under general regula-
tions, the freedom and experience
of making their own way in the
world."
And finally, the present scheme
scheme calls for making the fra-
ternities, sororities and the house
clubs an integral and accepted part
of the housing scheme. They are the
product of steady growth and have
attained to a degree of importance
in Michigan life. There is no in-
clination on the part of the Uni-
versity administration to do other
than encourage their progress along
sound lines and to fit them into the
University plan.

And now we turn you over
again to WILLIE for a few
moments entertainment.
Darling Dannikins:
While I should
be the last to say that the Daily
was a big pansy, it does, at times,
show horticultural tendencies. And
why? No consistency. You and I,
Dan, with our shouldrs to the
grindstone, our feet on the ground,
and our fingers in our mouths-we
sweat, bleed and die for THE
CAUSE. And what does the Daily
do? Every day that it appears,
your column is next to an adver-
tisement of the May Festival. I'm
feeling so discouraged, Dan, that I
have seriously considered letting
everything slide to IGNORE THEJ
UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN.
But ever since the NILLY family
intermarried with us WILLIES, our
fighting spirit has kept us going,
wil-nilly-
I suggest the following slogan:
THE May festival. GATHERS NO
WORMS. To display this promin-
ently is the best we can do for the
present. And so that you shall
have more time to devote to the
CAUSE, I take the liberty of writ-
ing the verse of the day for you.
Between the dark and the daylight
When night is beginning to fall
Some idiot in our boarding house
blows the fuse...
It's a great world after al.
And this will make you free from
the burden of versifying for next
Tuesday.
Twelve months there are in every
year;
May Festival may only fall
In one of these-so let us cheer:
It's a great world after a'l.
Now that that is finished, I want
you to say a little prayer every
night before tucking yourself in
your little bed-and I'll bet it's
damn little if you live within the
city limits-a little prayer for Our
Boys Over There. They are fight-
ing and perishing for us; while
we, sitting here at home, are foist-
ing the 18th amendment and the
May Festival on them. Ah! the in-
tolerable pity of it. Go the ant,
thou sluggard, and take thy bed
and walk. Thy strength is as the
strength of ten, because thou ig-
norest Ye May Pestilence.
WILLIE, who speaks with the
tongues of men and- of angels.
Really; Wil'ie my good fellow,
you must do better. Your ap-
pointment as Assistant Editor
has been put off another week
because you could not even re-
member that it is a FINE
world after all. Aren't you
ashamed?
* * *
Has anyone noticed the rain late-
ly?....Well, it's good for the flow-
ers, and that's all the comfort
you're going to get out of me, and
I don't care whether you like flow-_
ers or not.

SIC AND DRAMA
'TONIGHT: Prof. i. A. Richards of
the University of Cambridge,
England, and visiting professor
at Harvard University, will lec-
ture on "Modern Poetry" at 8
o'clock in room 1025 Angell Hall.
The Tatterman Marionettes give
"Stringing Broadway," a puppet
Revue, in the Mendelssohn Thea-
tre beginning at 8:15.
The Cercle Francais will present
two plays in the Laboratory Thea-
tre at 8:15.
THE TATTERMAN MARIONETTES
The Tatterman Marionettes, pre-
sented by William Duncan and Wil-
liam Mabley, is by now a thorough-
ly familiar organization to Ann
Arbor theatre-goers, who have seen
them annually now for almost five
years. This group which is appear-
ing in the Mendelssohn Theatre to-
night under the auspices of the
Theatre group of the Women's
league probably ranks just below
Tony Sarg in the American field
and tours constantly. Duncan and
Mabley have very wisely appropri-
ated a field for their activity more
or less unexploited bypother pup-
peteers. This will appear in their
program tonight which is being
liven over entirely Lo a puppet re-
vue entitled "Stringing Broadway,"
a series of sketches and divertisse-
ments satirizing the New York
Theatre. It is strictly an all-adult
evening and its nature is charac-
teristic of the advance in sophisti-
cation which this time-honored art
of fantasy is undergoing just at
present.
Among the sketches in the revue
are "The Cloak and Suit Case," a
mystery play; "The Penultimate
Mrs. Whortlebury," an E n g 1 i s h
drawing-room comedy;' 'The Green-
wich Village Art Theatre;" Glorify-
ing The American Girl;" "Way
Down in East Lynne;" "Shreds of
Passion," an articulate cinema;
"Emancipation From Thought," the
very latest from Leningrad; and
"Dusky Rhythm." This satiric use
of the puppet thoughout a whole
evening is something of an inno-
vation and should be quite inter-
esting.
In a special matinee the Tatter-
man Marionettes will present, for
children, "The Glowing Bird," a
fantastic and colorful story of ad-
venture in old Russia, by Edward
Mabley. The play is derived from
a unique body of folk literature by
Edward Mabley. T h e afternoon
performance will begin at 3:30.
CERCLE FRANCAIS
The Members of the Cercle Fran-
cais who offer two evenings of
French drama a year will this eve-
ning offer in the Laboratory Thea-
tre at 8:15 two plays. "Il faut qu'-
une porte soit ouvaerte ou fermee"
by Alfred de Musset and "La Souri-
ante Madame Beudet" by Denys
Amiel and Andre Obey. Alfred de
Musset's delicate comedy is one of
the major nineteenth century dra-
mas and its production by the Cer-
cle Francais is pleasantly ambi-
tious. The evening is not restrcited
to members but is open to the pub-
lie.
FIRST FESTIVAL PROGRAM
The thirty-eight annual M a y

Festival will open tomorrow eve-
ning Frederick Stock and the Chi-
cago Symphony orchestra and Lily
Pons, Soprano offering the follow-
ing program

Aria "Bll Song" from "Lakie".. lelibes
Mme. Pons has been the cynosure
of eyes and ears at the Metropolitan
Opera House this season since her
brilliant debut in "Lucia di Lam-
mermoor." Since then she has ap-
peared in three other roles, as Gilda
in "Rigoletto," as Rosina in "The
Barber of Seville" and as Philine in
"Mignon." Mme. Pons already has
a lively body of admirers, not only
in New York but throughout the
country by means of her radio and
recording appearances. Lawrence
Gilman, something of a veteran,
has been consistently assuring the
readers of the Herald-Tribune that
Mme. Pons is the best thing that
has happened to the Metropolitan
in a long time, that she is the long-
awaited and much needed fresh
and bold coloratura. So that her
her appearance here tomorrow eve-
ning is something of a "scoop" for
the May Festival. We have an op-
portunity to hear in her first sea-
son an artist who is to all appear-
ances destined to be one of the
