control of the Mediterranean; and'
Italy has stolen a march on France
by establishing "friendly" relations
with Albania, thus "cornering" the
Adriatic. France and Italy are
rivals in African colonial com-
merce. Both seem to think they
have every reason to view any
move made by the other as suspi-
But HITLER does not evidently
want to establish a rather doubtful
alliance. "Why should a Franco-
German alliance be formed and
against whom would it be di-
rected?" he asks. Then he very
logically points out that "if France
is ready to give up her superiority
over Germany in the point of
armaments, I think it would be far
more sensible for France to disarm
than for Germany to rearm."
He likewise would like to know
whether HERVE'S proposals mean
that France has lost faith in the
League of Nations, and whether
the French government would re-
gard such an alliance as in keeping
with the principles of the Kellogg
From these arguments, it would
appear that Germany does not
really fear a war with another
nation; but in keeping with its
conquered-nation attitude policy,
it must needs complain in order
to make the world think it is worse
off than it actually is.
Although the standing German
army is limited in numerical
strength, the unofficial reserve
forces are rapidly growing. The
method of circumventing the Ver-
sailles treaty is to drill men for the
national "Schutze-polizei," or po-
lice forces. There is nothing in the
conditions of the pact that forbids
the training of as many police as
the country may need. Germany is
not standing still. But France,
Great Britain, and Italy should
not, at present, worry about a
regular war with Germany; they
should confine their energy to pre-
paration for the commercial com-
petition with which that country
is soon going to confront them.
For the past decade, Russia has
been in the unenviable position of
the "poor relative," forced to tak
what was left after the orgies of
the European powers, and depend-
ing for her principal weapon upon
"friends in enemy countries." But
after ten years of this, she has
grown to a position of power and
Particularly will this be evident
in the coming Geneva conference
to which the Soviet delegates are
now on their way. They will meet
there, according to a report in the
New York Times, the assistance of
the Germans and of the Italians
In adition, there is a tacit under-
standing that they will be backed
by Turkey. To what extent this
collaboration will exist isnstill a
matter of somequestion, but that
it does exist is certain.
With such co-operation as a basi
on which to make their demands.
the Soviet delegation under the
direction of MAXIM LITVINOFF.
the Foreign Commissar, will not be
snubbed by the other European
powers. M. Litvinoff goes to Geneva
with Soviet sentiment behind him
and very well-defined ideas as to
the functioning of the "Geneva
disaramament comedy," as the
Soviet press has chosen to call it.
Whatevr the result, this move
marks the serious entrance of the

Soviet government into the politics
of the world. Her notions of a world
revolutoin have been largely out-
grown. Even the propaganda of the
Communists has entered a twilight
stage which is revealed only in the
occasional fBashes of publicity-
hungry politicians.
The Soviet Union has passed its
childhood. Her delegates go to
Geneva prepared to view the prob-
lems of the conference in the light
of world affairs rather than in the
lurid glow of Communism. With her
immense resources of wealth and
man-power, and her government
ready to "play the game" with1
Europe, the Soviet must be given a
voice and recognized as a power'
in the affairs of the world.r

I say, gents, what are the chances
on exhibiting a little of the pep
verve, loyalty, and all the other
things for which Michigan is so
justly famous. Why, you big bunch
of punks, I hear that at the last
stupendous send-off about 45 of
you turned out, and three of those
cheered. If you aren't careful, you
will. soon find that Michigan will
be known the world over for hon-
oring its traditions in the breeches.

that the female voices were not-

The Pherret, who is on an
eastern tour at the moment,
writes me the following:-
Dear Dan:
Cornell men have gone to
the lengths of forcibly demon-
strating their superiority to
the women on campus when
they turned Baptist the other
day and submerged an erring
damsel who , ad the temerity
to ascend th Lawyer's steps.
How about sending them a Di-
Yours in a parabola,
The following was donated to me
in a spirit of camaradie-which I
froze with a glance-by the wom-
ens page.
"Reminiscent of the campaign
raging in the Rolls Column, we fine
an editorial supporting the same
.dea of 'Down with the Coeds' in
the student publication at Oxford
published a short time ago. Ther
has been some agitation for the
last few years."

Don't forget the Send-off! !

And just while I'm on the sub-
ject, has anyone noticed what s
'ousy looking affair that Newberr3
?uditorium is? How about some
contributions, letters of Marque
and Reprisal sent to the Adminis-
tration, social ostracism of all E
& G boys, and other methods of
coercion? Surely you, red blooded
students, the flower of your glor-
ious race, budding Americans, and
future arbiters of yourtcountry's
destiny are not going to sit idly
by and let a' bunch of tightwa:
make you grow up in surround-
ings calculated to stunt, stifle, and
stigmatize your aesthetic develop-
ment are you? Why of course you
ire you big babies! And let me tel:
you this. After Uncle Daniel ha
done all this work to get it fixed
for you, when the thing is finall3
rit to be seen, I am going to gc

one else out. You aren't going tc
make a monkey out of me- you

You! Yeah, I mean you right
there,-you don't look so darn
peppy to me. What would the
team think? What you need is
a good trip down to the send-
ofs tomorrow. It'll put roses in
your cheeks, and take my word

Dear Dan:
Reading the Daily of November
2nd I note something very int:r-
esting. One dealing with Earnest
Hemingway is nice if you care for
that sort of thing (why Jojo how
could you think such a thing of
me?); but the picture that goes
with it is what makes it real news.,
The last time I saw that picture it
was labelled Michael Arlen-and it
loked like Arlen too. This time it is
labelled Earnest Hemingway and it
still looks like Arlen. Can some
reader explain this? I am sure you
can't Dan.

A Review.
Raymond Morin, whose ambition
in the way of recitals is admirable,
presented a long difficult program
last night to a crowd which filled
the School of Music Auditorium.
Despite the frequency of very
hectic moments. the recital re-
vealed or rather confirmed the im-
pression of a significant talent.
Nearly all Mr. Morin's playing em-
ploys a wealth of intense musical
impulses. The very state of nervous
tension which is his attitude at the
piano tends to suggest significant
interpretation. And such generally
is the case.
Mr. Morin's impulses are prim-
arily rythmical. And this primary
source of inspiration continually
vitalized his playing-even when it
was bad playing. That is, a strong
sense of what was rythmically in-
dicated in the score carried him
successfully through passages in
the Presto movements of the Schu-
nann G Minor Sonata where very
clearly the wealth of pianistic de-
tail in the score was technically
bewildering him. Rythm is prim-
ary. And even though his failure
to clarify all the very difficult
Schumann writing prevented any-
thing approaching perfection, his
playing of the sonata was notable.
Only a mature artist could pos-
sess the sensitive discretion and
the technique to articulate the in-
tense emotional states that musi
obviously evokes in Morin. It is
significant enough just at present
that the emotional states exist.
There actually was something
like perfection integration in the
Prokofieff Suggestions Diaboiques
which Mr. Morin played very bril-
Certain technical defects were
more or less consistent in the re-
cital. Occasionally, tempi were
hastened into the spasmodic. In the
Mower, lyrical passages, Mr. Mor-
in's feelings are not at all trust-
worthy. There was a general in-
sensitiveness to details of phras-
ing, particularly with regard to
accent, and some extraordinary
self-indkfence in retards and ac-
celeration These were evidenced
mnost clearly in the first section of
the Chopin Etude in E Major. His
louder tones are consistently hard
and unresonant.
The notable aspect of his tech-
nique, aside from a facility which
suggests potential virtuosity, was a
considerable dynamic scale which
he manages very deftly and pre-
the: a comic opera in twa ats:
nder direction of Rupert D'Oyly
Carte: symphony orchestra con-
ducted by Malclm Sargent: Victor
Masterpiece Series.
G. K. Chesterton has it that the
best work of the Victorian ae.
perhaps the most Victorian work
of the Victorian age, was its satire
on itself. Indeed, Gilbert and Sulli-
van engagingly working in the
realm of nonsense made all the
criticisms we ourselves so fiercely
reiterate. The sentimental song
n Gilbert and Sullivan somehow
knows very well all about its qul-
ity and subtly mocks, while being
tender, the idiocy of being tender.
This simultaneous presentation of
quality and satire on the quality

only a Victorian could have written.
We can only rant and show a dis-
tressing sense of superiority.
Iolanthe, the music from which
Victor issued last month in a
Splendid rendition by the tradi-
'ional D'Oyly Carte Company of
Condon, is typical Gilbert humour.
There is the typical mingling of
fancy and .(actually fierce) satire.
A band of fairies are juxtaposed
with the British House of Lords.
The latter group show the grcater
antasticality of tradition. The
fairies are rather prosaic, with
normal desires. The peers are un-
believable persons breaking into
jigs, admitting their shames and
brainlessness with attractive im-
Gilbert's heaven-sent silliness is
wedded to Sullivan's buoyant tunes,
gayly catching the conversational
inflections of Gilbert's buoyant
crescendoes of rhymes and metri-
cal funning. Whether you be "a
litle liberal or a little conservative,"
this music that Victor issues is
joyously liberating.
Sullivan, of course, was as su-
oreme a humourist as Gilbert was.
With mockingly intricate writin
ae had no end of fun with Italian
operatic conventions. Indeed, a
god deal of the pleasure fron
Sullivan's music is satisfaction

This afternoon the football team
leaves for one of the most import-
ant intersectional games of the
year, and a crucial game of the
season as far as Michigan is con-
cerned. Plans for a rousing send-
off have been completed and all
that remains to insure its success
is the obtaining of the whole-
hearted support of the student
body. To this end, classes in the
University will be dismissed at 4:00
o'clock to enable all students to
attend this great open air pep
Coaches, football captains, and
the players' themselves are united
in their opinion of the value of
student support. The undergrad-
uate body can instill that last mea-
sure of punch into a team and that
final urge may be the margin of
victory. A large enthusiastic turn-
out this afternoon will let the team
know that the student body, though
it cannot, for the most part, follow
them on their long journey, is with
them to a man.
Students and townspeople alike
Will assemble at Angell hall and
accompany the team to the station.
The Varsity band, cheerleaders,
and members of the team will be
on hand. Will you?
Every so often some German
politician issues a statement in
which he bewails the fact that his
country is not allowed tohtrain
more soldiers under the Versailles
peace treaty, and that should
some neighboring country become

never be able to protect the coun-

Forty years ado the Michigan Daily was published for

the first time.

It was a little four column, four page

sheet, inauspicious to say the least.

Gradually, how-

ever, expansion took place, columns were added, the
size was increased, an Associated Press wire was leased,
until today The Michigan Daily stands as the peer of
all college dailies.
