A GAME FOR CHARITY
The example of Northwestern and
Notre Dame in transferring their
football game from the Evanston
stadium to Soldiers' Field, Chicago,
for the purposes of securing larger
receipts for charity leads us to sup-
port the suggestion that Michigan
engage in a post-season game with
the University of Detroit, the pro-
ceeds of which could be used to
excellent advantage by the com-
mittee in charge of charities in
Ann Arbor and Detroit.
The exigencies of this coming
winter are already apparent from
the depression and unemployment
conditions. In the case of a charity
game, it should be entirely possible
to make successful negotiations for
the game with a neighboring team.
Furthermore, a post-season game
with an outfit such as the Univers-
ity of Detroit team would occasion
such interest as would make the
undertaking eminently yWorthwhile.
FASTER AND FASTER
The Germans, erstwhile' leaders
in the arts of engineering and
mechanics, have again startled the
world with a new device which will
mean faster and faster transporta-
tion for the future citizens of the
world. The "Zeppelin-train" pro-
pelled by a 400-horsepower airplane
motor, drove the cigar-shaped
transport over an old, discarded
railroad track at the rate of 100
miles an hour in a test held before'
newspaper men on Saturday.
It was the Germans who, in 1916,
startled the world by pouring a
deadly gas upon a band of unfor-
tunate Canadians at Vimy Ridge.
The use of this deadly gas was cer-
tainly far from being of benefit to
the human race, but the principle
of achievement remained. Late last
winter a giant seaplane, the DO-X,
took off from a German lake on
its trial flight preparatory to cross-
ing the Atlantic this fall with a
crew and passenger list totaling
140, the largest ever lifted by
heavier than air devices.
And now, again, it is the German
scientific mind, the laboratories
along the Rhine that give us an
even faster mode of travel-a train
propelled by airplane motors. It
was along this same track a year
and a half ago that the first rocket
car made a successful attempt.
What will be the result of this
startling invention? Will the speed-
ier Zeppelin-Train displace the
more cumbersome locomotive? In-
ventors of the new device claim
that it will get four miles to the
gallon of gasoline. At a cost of 20
cents a gallon, the fuel expense
per mile is 5 cents, or hundreds of
times cheaper than the most eco-
'nomical locomotive k n o w n to
science.
We may be envious, and we may
even carry with us the prejudice
of the war, but we sometimes have
to admit that Germany is just
about two steps ahead of almost
every other country in science. Her
inventions are not only based on
theory-they prove themselves as
practical in test after test. Just
how much difference to the science
of transportation this newest gift
from the Rhine will make is a
matter of argument, but it is cer-
tain that the principle involved will
eventually be employed throughout
the industrial world.

Our campus leaders, we under-
stand, having been surfeited with
theiriefforts to enforce pot-wearing
on the freshmen, are now about to
take unto themselves a new tradi-
tion, also sartorical. Corduroy trou-
sers may be foisted upon our sight,j
presumably because wearing them
seems the virile thing to do. Be-
sides being emblematic of virility,
they are also the hallmark of
truck drivers and dyed-in-the-
wool rustics.
EDITORS AND PATRIOTS
(California Daily Bruin)
College newspaper editors east
and west appear to be breaking on
the front page of metropolitan
dailies with regularity in the past
few weeks due to somewhat amaz-
ing remarks made in their editor-
ials. Most recent of these is the
case of the editor of the Harvard
Crimson. In no uncertain terms
did this young man score the
American Legion for the conduct of
some of its members during the
convention of that society at the
"Hub."
The bold accusations made in the
article brought forth an amazing
number of replies from indignant

I s
OUT..'.I-!
Yes sir,-that's the first thing I
said when I heard the news and
dashed over to see the new atrocity,
I says "That's out!" However, de
mortuis nil nisi bonum. Let us
forward to our business. I have.
been bribed by the Gargoyle staff
to offer in conjunction with them
a handsome prize for the best job
of filling in the funny face on the
cover. It seems they ran out of
ideas, and are leaving it up to the
public to complete the job.
* *k *
The prize for the best draw-
ing is one re-made diploma
that Rolls has left over from
the chivalry campaign, and a
chance to be editor of Gar-
goyle next year (careful boys,
You'll get sucked in!)

Before I turn the column over to
contributors, I- wish to make one
more statement. Just so that no
one will ever be able to say DAN
BAXTER strikes without warning,
I am announcing right now that
Harry Tillotson's blood is my aim
and goal henceforth. I have again
relegated to the limbo, which, as
you probably all know, is the place
they throw all old worn out foot-
ball laces after a Minnesota game.
Such things must not be. I'm going
to trade my seat in for a position
on the Law Club tower.

Daniel Dammit,
Where the hell do you get that
hearsay stuff. When I, Napoleon
the Little, announce anything it is
irrefutable. And if it is not true,
it is made so in a hurry. I await
an apology. And I don't care a
hoot and one second hand Com-
munist whether you do something
about it or not.
With consummate disdain
Napoleon the Little.
P. S. On second thought I'll give
you another chance. Maybe you
didn't realize my importance. What
do the 2 for 1 signs sprinkled on
the campus sidewalks mean? I
know, do you?

Dear Nappy:
No I don't know about the
footsteps, and it's beneath my
dignity to answer such lang-
uage.

Dear Dan,
In Tuesday's Daily we found:
Dean of Radcliffe
Bans Molnar Play;

Of course, there's no telling when
you'll need a good dean around the
house. But it got pretty bad when
we discovered the first paragraph:
"Once again the gaunt foreigner
of suppression has been shaken in
Boston."
Tsk, tsk to these Bostonians. A
gaunt foreigner, indeed. Maybe the
poor fellow was alien! Humph.

Good stuff Godfrey, I thought
something should be done about
that myself, but they always
accuse me of un-brotherly spirit
when I notice such things.

Dear Dan:
In this mornings Daily it is re-
ported that "all freshmen at the
University of Denver must attend
football games in a body."
Tell me, Dan, what dogs one
usually attend a football game in?
Freddie Bobbsey.

Dear Freddie,
I know one thing darn well,
-I'm going to the next game in
an overcoat, or else return in a
hearse.
Dan Dear,
There has been no little mourn-
ing in campus circles this weel
because it wasn't "Old 83" that won
the Ohio State game.

A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY
A Review.
No rationalizing references to
the Russian technique in drama
can establish Turgeniev's "A Month
in the Country" as a good drama.
It is tedious almost all the time.
But more significantly, as a drama
it makes no use of the fact of pro-
duction, the fact of the literary
work taking its life in the theatre.
A novelist, with a sound feeling
for character in situation, places
his material in four acts. There
is no effort in the realization of
that material to summon "theatre"
as a qualifying, significant mode of I
expression. The alternation of pic-
ture and movement in "A Month in
the Country" has no meaning. The
play has no "theatre" rhythm.
This resolves itself into the
objections. There is no particular
point to "seeing and hearing" the
material of the play. One need not
see the spectacle of a strong mas-
culine mind becoming disgustingly
(though, or because, dignifiedly
arid decently) parasitic to a beau-
tiful woman of a shallow, irritable,
prima-donna temperament. There,
is no point in "seeing" a young
tutor, new to the social world, be-j
wildered at the same aristocratic'
middle-aged woman's falling in
love with him. The externals there
-the dialogue, the situations aris-
ing, etc.,-are almost predictable.
At least they are easy to be appre-
hended. They are very liable to be
dull (as here).
The interesting thing in the
material is the set of mental atti-
tudes prompting these common-
place externals. More specifically
one would be grateful for the novel
in which Turgeniev analytically
explored the "depths" of Natalie
Petrovna's shallowness. One is
bored by the play which reproduces
it. Indeed, Turgeniev has splen-
lidly analyzed the strong man be-
2oming parasitic, then suddenly so
passionately resenting his weak-
ness as to become strong again in
the relationship of Bazarov to
Madame Odenstor in "Fathers and
Sons." A similar relationship is dull
in "A Month in the Country."
All of which is not a case for the
novel but the suggestion that a
;ood novelist will be a bad drama-
tist, unless he be a poetic drama-
tist, an expressionist, or a Chekhov,
in which, words, while remaining in
situation, present the introspectve
aspect of the material. Turgeniev
is neither. The production is dis-
appointing. The Guild doesn't take
its road tours too seriously. Missing
from the original cast are Alexan-
der Kirkland (who, one guesses
would have made something of the
absolutely unwritten part of the
tutor), and Dudley Digges (whose
doctor, one knows, would have been
splendid). Their substitutes are.
very poor.
In fact, except for three splen-
didly colorful sets, Henry Traver's
uproarious few minutes as an inar-
ticulate suitor, and Alla Nazimova,
the production is incompetent- in
no way reaching what one likes to
think of as the Guild standard.
Miss Nazimova's performance is
worthwhile. Turgeniev, drawing an
acquaintance of his, made quite an
extraordinary character. Natalie
Petrovna suggests the actress in
the "Sea Gull." She is fiercely ego-
'entric; a "beauty" who clutches at
men, that by their obsession with
her, and shallow excitement, she
may postpone the realization of
approaching oldness.

Miss Nazimova suggests all this
with interesting technique. But
even more interesting is her sym-
pathy with the character, suggested
by her moderating the irratibility.
She, herself, is most graceful when
the character is most objection-
able. And yet she does not distort
the character. This is so-called
"creative acting." In this place it
is not objectionable and certainly
fascinating.

DISHONORED LADY AT CASS
Catherine Cornell, it seems, was
destined to mirror that much dis-
cussed and much sought after "lady
without repressions." She is now in
Detroit playing the woman whose
sin found her out. This time she is
Madeline Cary in the DISHON-
ORED LADY, a play which em-
phasizes the emotional side of
human nature at the expense of
mere dramatic trappings, which
was written by Margaret Ayer

MONROE LUNCH
Corner Monroe and Oakland

A pipeful of
good tobacco is
the real smoke
T CODAY, tomorrow, all the
rest of your life, you can en-
joy and keep on enjoying good
tobacco in a good pipe.
"How can I pick a good pipe,
and how can I tell good tobacco?"
you may ask. Who but you could
answer? You'll know your own
good pipe when you bite down
on it.
Edgeworth maybe the tobacco
you're looking for. It has the dis-
tinctive flavor that men like, the
slow-burning coolness; and it is
rich with the aroma of fine old
burley blended just right. A pipe-
ful of Edgeworth is the real smoke.
Why not try Edgeworth? You
can buy it anywhere in the 150
tin-or, if you wish, write for a
generous sample packet - free.

POLITICAL PRUNING
The University of Wisconsin has'
recently taken an excellent step inI
the matter of cleaning up campusl
politics by abolishing six classl
offices. This, move was started in
1928, when, at the instigation of
the "Daily Cardinal," the list w Ls
cut by 13 positions. Presidents of
the freshman a n d sophomore
classes were made the chairmen of
their respective - frolic and prom
committees in order to make them
more than mere figureheads, and
to abolish the promising of such
lucrative jobs to their campaign'
managers and henchmen. This
year the students at Madison will
elect only four class officers, senior
prom chairman, junior prom chair-
man, and sophomore and freshman
class presidents.
Although the matter of the num-
ber of offices, elective and appoint-
ive, that might be desirable is a
debatable- question, it is only too
appareAt that altogether too many
exist at Michigan. Vice-presidents
of all classes accomplish nothing,
nor do secretaries. The treasurers
sit for weeks in Angell hall at-
tempting to collect class dues from
members of their class to make up
for deficits in class functions.
The number of committees ap-
pointed by presidents to reward
their electioneering helpers is enor-
mous. Many of these groups never
do anything more than have their
name printed in the 'Ensian. Such.
committees as were appointed last
year include Class Banquet and
Class Year book in the junior class;
Advisory, Social, Athletic, Execu-
tive and Finance committees ap-
pointed in all classes. The various
Frolic, Prom, Hop and Ball com-
mittees take care of most of the
social work for the class, as well as
the financial burdens. Such com-
mittees as Cap Night, Swing Out,
Discipline, and most of the senior
onnnintments are istified. Elim-
