lican, the term Hemphill's sup-
porters are assuming.
President Hoover has supposedly
asked for a complete Republican
victory in Pennsylvania. Bolters
have interpreted this statement to.
apply only to Davis. Davis, how-
ever, himself has started to stump
the state, accompanied by Pinchot
The election of these men wil give
Pennsylvania two distinguished, as
well as capable, representatives,
whose influence in national as well
as state political circles is a great
advantage. But thundering oratory
will not defeat them, and if the
Vare interests defeat one or both
of them, they will have to fight to
do so.

CONVOCATIONS ONCE MORE.
To the Editor:
May I make a few con-
cluding remarks about the contro-
versy I seem to have aroused, with
an incidental analysis of the two
opinions my article of last Friday
evoked? I, too, pay reverent tribute
to your tolerance in allowing this
man GAD to prattle about a sub-
ject which lies totally beyond the
compass of his mind, but which
might come within the scope of the
childish emotionalism with which
he is possessed. I doubt if he him-
self is proud of his embryonic opin-
ion, or why should he write incog-
nito? I hold that the opinion of a
person who is ashamed to associ-
ate himself with that opinion is
not worth printing.
After a single perusal of "Cam-
pus and Creed," I am convinced
that the force of Mr. GAD'S intel-
lect was spent with the penning of
his title! The article must inevi-
tably be characterized by its un-
fathomable shallowness. Like one
of those old-fashioned hoop-skirts,
GAD circled everything but touch-
ed nothing. He struck blindly
without knowing what he was
striking at, and succeeded admir-
aby in making a fool of himself.
Having nothing to offer on the
subject in'question, the author, like
an offended schoolboy, launched a
sarcastic, vindicative assault on the
personality of the writer of an
opinion he didn't like. Sarcasm is
the last resort of no argument at
all, and epithets flow when reason
is dammed. As an opinionist, GAD
would make an excellent writer for
the Reader's Digest. Arid thus we
may say, the wrath of GAD has
been puffed into the controversial
winds-and still we are as far re-
moved from the real issues as be-
fore.
On the other hand, I wish to
thank the writer of last Sunday's
editorial under the heading "A
Note on Convocations." It was
rather a neat presentation of the
whole situation. In the matter of
a few details, though, I wish to
correct him. The hour for Sunday
evening convocations has been set
by the Ann Arbor churches, and
not by the Student Christian asso-
c i a t i o n, for seven-thirty. The
churches jointly agreed to termin-
ate whatever services they might
be holding by that time. Hence,
that is not a mechanical flaw.
Moreover, the convocations spon-

sored last year at eleven o'clock
Sunday mornings by the Student
Christian association, were met
with the opposition of most of the
churches of Ann Arbor and of the
University administration, on the
theory that it deprived the students
of their own, regular church serv-
ices. The churches do not pretend
to encourage or support Sunday
morning convocations; and yet
they are heartily in favor of hav-
ing them in the evening once a
month. For the reason, the effort
has been made to coordinate the
various religious and student insti-
tutions on this campus, and to
hold a co-operative University eve-
ning service the fourth Sunday of
each month. The step is both
practical and ideal: it distributes
the burden of sponsoring these
services, and yet it is progress to-
vard centralizing the "loosely con-
nected religious agencies of Ann
Arbor." So much ior the mechan-
ics of convocations.
The convocation of last Sunday
evening yielded an attendance of
about seven hundred. At the most,
there were one hundred students
there. I question the value of hold-
ing such gatherings. I believe the
citizens of Ann Arbor can be serv-
ed just as satisfactorily in their
separate churches. Should we con-
tinue with convocations just for the

CONTRIBUTE
TO ROLLS
FUND!
As a subsidiary to the Rolls Asso-
ciation for Civic Betterment, which
is, in turn, the sponsor of the Kick-
ing The Coeds Off Campus move-
ment and other similar enterprises
for the public weal, a new organ-
ization is well under way. This is
the Benevolent Society For The
Betterment of The Inexcusable
Appearance of the Newberry Audi-
torium.
* * *
Just to prove to the B & G
Boys that this column is not
run entirely on the lines of de-
structive criticism, the society
has decided to solicit funds for
the purpose mentioned above
because it seems that the cur-
rent depression in the business
world has so impoverished this
noble institution that it can't
buy paint for the major eyesore
of the century.
* * * -
GIVE GIVE GIVE!!!!-!
As an aid to this cause, the Rolls
Staff asks you to contribute to the
fund,-yes and you and you and
you too. Send in anything that may
be of use in either preparing the
thing for the painting (i.e., dyna-
mite) or in the actual painting
itself (i.e., doormats, Flit Sprays.
etc.) Rolls will publish a list of
contributors every day, along with
one of their gifts.
And' say, fellows, if one of you
could find a pair of old pants to
send in for the Pherret he would
appreciate it highly. He went and
sat down in one of the rear seats
of the place in questionaandeis,
consequently in a somewhat em-
barrassing condition. By the way,
the contributors to date are as
follows:
Art Hurst 3 qts. Varn. Remover.
F. H. Yost ...........1 gal. oil.
Anon......1 Old Toothbrush.
(Thanks Anon, mine was pretty
well shot.)
Just a word about Mr. Tillot-
son's vindication yesterday ...
I don't know, maybe I'd better
not use that word after all.
* * *
Another evidence of the patern-
alistic policy of the University
these late years is the fact that
there has been stationed a lovely
man at the new Law Club to warn
people not to walk through lest
they step on a nail.
Why I remember when I en-
tered the old place back in '08,
they used to encourage us to
step on nails to show our viril-
ity, and I can't think of a
single instance where the nail
didn't come out second best
either. It all just goes to show
how timely and important the
Michigan For Men club really is.
Besides that, the Law Club inter-
feres seriously with those who live
on the South side of the Campus
when they are in a hurry to get
to class, which only proves the old
addage that "Too many Cooks spoil
the sloth."
I understand that there is a new
kind of thievery abroad on the
campus which consists in going
around the night after the Home-
coming game and stealing decora-

tions from the houses. I can't recall
ever having heard of anything
more revolting and puerile- t
that? . . . puerile . . . and here I
am wasting my time on a thing
like Rolls Anyway I think it's a
very nasty thing to do, and if you
don't think it's a lousy job shinning
up posts on the fronts of Fraternity
Houses in the dark, you're squirrely,
-that's all, just plain squirrely.

PERVERBS OF 1930.

a stitch in time."

Dear Nephew:
I enjoyed my visit yesterday im-
mensely and am glad you are
getting along so well. I wish you
would send me that bolt you are
receiving from your instructor on
Friday. I've lost the key to my door
and it's very annoying.
One thing I observed Monday
night impressed me very much. The
University may ban autos, close the
Arboretum, make the girls get in
at 10:30 and discourage late dances
but they can never subdue old
Mother Nature. Monday night I

Brahms Quartet in A Minor, the
Beethoven in B fiat major, Opus
13, no. G, and a final group of pieces
by Haydn, Borodin, and Turina."
The special admission price for
students is fifty cents.

A pipeful of
good tobacco is
the real smoke.
ODAY, 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 15¢
tin-or, if you wish, write for a
generous sample packet - free.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1930
Night Editor--DAVID M. NICHOL
ELECTIONEERING IN
PENNSYLVANIA.
Many charges have been brought1
up against former Governor Gif-
ford Pinchot, Republican nominee
for governorship in that stronghold
of Republicanism, Pennsylvania, in
an attempt to lure more G. O. P.
supporters into the camp of the
Democratic nominee, John Hemp-
hill, but most of them seem to be
unfounded, and merely camouflage
to protect the bossdom which cer-
tain interests are trying to create
in the state.
Ever since the time of Boise Pen-
rose, the Vare brothers of Phila-
delphia have tried to gain control
of the state government through
the governorship, and have consist-
ently failed. Last spring they put
two candidates in the field, one for
governor and the other for senator.
The former, politically unknown,
was defeated, and the latter, James
Davis, present Secretary of Labor,
won, as he undoubtedly would have
done without the Vare support.
Pinchot stumped the state from
one end to the other, and without
any such organizations as the Mel-
lon, Grundy or Vare interests be-
hind him, won the nomination. The
Vare interests were again left with
empty hands.
A short time ago, Republicans
found out that Philadelphia ward
leaders had quietly gone over to
the Hemphill organization, because
"neither candidate was a Repub-
lican, and Hamphill was the better
man of the two." Pinchot promptly
filed suit to prevent those ward
leaders from receiving or disburs-
ing Democratic campaign funds,
and the furore increased. General
W. W. Atterbury, president of the
Pennsylvania Railroad, resigned as
national committeeman of the Re-
publican party in order to fight
against Pinchot, and the contest
became still more bitter.
The Republican bolters call them-
selves the 'Liberals.' Pinchot is
certainly more liberal, if not
slightly radical, than any of the
staunch henchmen of the Vare in-

contain or suggest all the nuances
of the drama without the added
comment which stage production
can give, then it survives the test.
Otherwise the phonograph quite
ruthlessly exposes the poverty of
musical inspiration and the reliance
on another art.
Puccini's La To'rca, recently re--
leased by Victor, with Carmen
Mvelis, Piero Pauli, Apollo Granforte
in the leading roles, holds up very
well. It is well suited for grammo-
phone because Victorien Sardou's
libretto is a swift-moving macabre
melodrama. There are only three
principal characters and the action
between the great lyric moments is
rapid and inteligible.
some of the scenes are at a dis-
advantage, particularly those in
which Tosca indulges her tempera-
ment with appalling flexibility of
mood. One needs to see ier in these
moments. And then, too, the scene
with Tosca and the Chorus singing
off stage while Scarpia and Cava-
radossi are in dialogue on stage was
an almost imposible detail to re-
cord.
Otherwise, Puccini's first great
score proves very adequate and ex-
citing. The phonograph becomes
actually an idealization of some
parts of the opera. As an example,
freed of the necessity of watching
Tosca's physical torture in Act. II,
one realizes, as never before, how
splendidly Puccini's music conveys
emotional torture. Then, of course,
one is very grateful for getting the
two well-known arias (Toscas
"Vissi d'arte, vissi damore and
Cavaradossi's 'VE Lucevan Le
Stelle") in their dramatic context.
The greatest interest of the al-
bum, however, is its authenticity.,
.Italian opera is a hard-won musical
product. Two centuries of experi-
ence and effort went into its for-
mation. It consisted largely of a
simplification of musical thought
into melody: the reduction of the
musical problem to what could be
"uttered" naturally by people in a
misce-en-scene. The large repertoire
of products which this effort has
produced has always been a neces-
sary ievl in one's musical educa-
tion. One or the earlier levels.
The Victor Company happily
avoids the mistake Columbia nde
in having the British National
Opera Company do their Italian
Opera. Victor offers an authentic
Italian performance. This is an im-
portant point of appeal. One has
time to know this music and these
voices, to learn their precise qual-
ity, to catch their tricks of expres-
sion: the sum o it all being a more
authentic insight into the operatic
art than one can get from a social
evening in the Opera House.
One finds the singing anything
but immediately sympathetic. There
is an annoying hardness in the
tone-quality-such as one gets in
