that life affords."
One of the most striking results
of the election was the advances
made by the wets. However, little
can be expected to come from their
victories as they are still outnum-
bered in the House by more than
two to one, and in the Senate by
more than four to one. The fact
that the Eighteenth Amendment
requires two-thirds vote in both
Houses places the possibility of re-
>eal far in the distance, and its
result quite uncertain.

LOOKING THINGS OVER.
With the smoke of Tuesday's
election practically cleared away
there seems to be the certainty
that neither political party will
have a working majority in either
House, and in order to organize for
the election of officers and the
selection of committees, it will be
necessary for one or the other
major party to make terms with
Republican independents and in-
surgents.
The returns from Tuesday's vot-
ing as compiled by the Associated
Press give the Republicans 213
votes in the lower House, and the
Democrats 216 votes and 1 repre-
sentative who calls himself a
Farmer-Laborite. The Republicans
have 48 votes in the Senate, the
Democrats 47, and there is 1
Farmer-Labor senator.
Recounts in several states may
change the figures. There is also
the possibility of some of the in-
surgents, who are nominally Re-
publicans, voting with the Demo-
crats in order to permit them to
organize the Houses. This situation
arose Saturday when SENATOR
BROOKHART of Iowa offered his
vote to the Democrats, providing
they would accept what he referred
to as "his legislative program."
One of the most notable results
of the election was the choice of
DWIGHT MORROW in New Jersey
and JAMES HAMILTON LEWIS in
Illinois for the United States
Senate. SENATOR MORROW, who
takes his seat in December (be-
cause he was elected to fill a va-
cancy in addition to a full term),
will take his place at once as one
of the outstanding men in the
Senate. There is no doubt but that
'he will serve as a leader for the
administration forces in the upper
house,
The return of SENATOR LEWIS,
noted for his pink whiskers, and
brilliant oratory, will bring the
Senate the manners of a high-
born gentleman, and the brain of
an able statesman.
The Pennsylvania election brings
into prominence again one of the
most colorful political figures of

Editorial Comment
INDIFERET4NCE INSTEAD OF
INDIVIDUALISM.
(From the Cornell Daily Sun.)
In varying moods the college
dailies hail what they term the
rising individualism on the cam-
puses of the East. As definite man-
ifestations of the new spirit they
point out the increasing apathy to-
ward athletics, the decline of in-
terest in competitions for extra-
curricular posts and the growing
indifference to clubs and organiza-
tions.
The YALE NEWS and the DART-
MOUTH hail the rising individual-
ism; the DAILY PRINCETONIAN
thinks with the PENNSYLVANIAN
that a dash of the former interest
in mass movement would not be a
bad thing.
At Cornell it is hard to see a
trend of individualism definite
enough to deserve encouragement
or checking. A year will come along
when intellectual activity seems to
be gaining with the mass of stu-
dents; an increased interest is tak-
en in the things which college is
supposed to give. Then just as a few
pens begin to scrape in acknow-
ledgement of the new spirit and tell
the alumni that they could not
keep up with the present college
generation, a few organizers come
along, and the old shingle, key and
necktie pin scramble begins all
over again. New clubs spring up
overnight, and the Annual's para-
graphs become long.
This year has gone along pretty
smoothly so far. The organizing
complex has not taken hold of the
campus, and there has been some
evidence of an increasing interest
in working out campus problems on
an intelligent basis. Definite steps
are being taken to remedy the
rushing situation, a few hardy souls
are brooking the wrath of the gods
by asking the why and wherefore
of the curious R. O. T. C. pheno-
menon, and the debate club, which
is not a club in the organization
sense, is showing signs of real life.
But whether this can be called
a rising individualism is doubtful.
For some years there has been an
indifference to mass movement on
a large scale, but individual intel-
lectual activity has not been more
apparent in the last year or so.
Perhaps a little more definition
of the term "individualism" would
not be out of place. Apathy toward
athletics and a decline of interest
in competitions are both commen-
dable if it can be shown that some-
thing worthwhile is taking the
place once occupied by athletics
and competitions. But when there
is also apathy in the classroom we
do not think that individualism is
the word to apply to the new spirit.
Indifference would seem to be

more descriptive of the spirit which
the various editors see in their
midst. And indifference is some-
thing which they would probably
all deplore. So on this basis we
are inclined to agree with the
PRINCETONIAN and PENNSYL-
VANIAN that the new spirit is not
to be welcomed. If a genuine indi-
vidualism were arising, it should be
universally welcomed. But individ-
ualism would rather seem to be the
thinking through of things for one-
self and arriving at conclusions
not because they are dictated by
authority but because the individ-
ual has arrived at them indepen-

Well, boys, you're now going to
witness what is probably the fore-
most example of reading the future
that has been seen these forty
years come the next cyclone. I am

was written last Wednesday be-
cause you would never guess it
otherwise.
I really enjoyed that game yes-
terday, gang, the boys were really
in there with the old spirit--and by
the way it was one heck of a lot
better spirit than I saw at the
send-off the other day.

SC AND DRA
THE ONGAWA JAPANEST
PLAYERS.
A iReview by Emily G. Grimcs.
The Occident and the Orient
mingled as one last night at the
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre when
Mr. and Mrs. Michitaro Ongawa
presented representative d a n c e s,
songs, legends, and dramas of their
native Japan.
Diversity of talent on the part of
the two players was evident from
the first. Mrs. Ongawa, the singer
and dancer of the troupe, took her
part in a typically gracious oriental
manner.
The folk dances, children's story
dance, and a rustic dance were the
ight selections which portrayed the
life and thought of old Japan and
were calculated to bring her nearer
o ourselves and develop a firmer
friendship and gooci wiI between
he two countries involved, proved
,n agreeable change from the ordi-
xary run of concerts and dramatic
entertainments.

,
i
i

An ever present sense of humor,
so naive, that it seemed all the
more spontaneous was reflected
throughout the delightful program
and bound the people of two races
mn mutual laughter at the light and
antastial songs of the two lovers
in the Rustic dance.
Many of the selections were pre-
faced hA English and oefed in Jae-
anese as was the Sword dance, by
Jr. Ongawa, illustrating a famous
i storical incident. The t e m p 1 e
'"um, bells, gekkin, samisen, and
other native instruments which
were used as accompaniments to-
gether with the elaborate antique
.ative costumes set the performan se
aside as unusual and unique to the
last degree.
In the play of "The Fox Woman,
in example of the latest develop-
alent in dramatic art in Jaan.
he two players again depicted
their presentation in a light gra-
iousness of manner, at the same
time portraying a tale of a fabled
-d fox which has taken the form
>f a woman similar to our witches
vith charming humor and imagery
shich commended itself excellently
o or western tasies yet spiced
with an eastern absurdity and wit.
The entire program was both
spectacular and different and had
a great educational value which
vas due in part to the costumes,
nusical instruments, and proper-
lies seldom seen outside of Japan
xcept in museums.
RtOLLO'S WILD OAT
Sowing one's wild oats in the
rm of a production of Hamlet
ith a company of ham actors and
a musical comedy soubrette lends
nuch comedy to the production of
Rollo's Wild Oat" by the Play Pro-
:luction of the University of Mich-
-an at the Mendelssohn theater
Thursday, Friday and Saturday
evenings. It is a rollicking farce
which promises to be most enjoy-
'ble.
The hero of the piece is given a
um of money by his grandfather
vhich he immediately invests in
1is life long ambition, a production
f Hamlet with himself as the lead.
Je gathers together a company of
)ld fime actors, with the exception
>f Goldie, a musical comedy type
vhon he prevails upon to play
)phelia much to the disgust of the
'egulars. He falls in love with her.
r'ho climax comes when she insists
in stopping the show to tell him
that his grandfather is very ill.
The farce is being given excellent
settings under the direction of Mr.
[arry R. Allan of the department.
Phe furniture, props, costumes and
ettings are all being made by Play
?roduction and promise to add zest
o a most amusing performance.
This is the first production of the
;eason as the members of the de-
)artment have been very busy
luring the last month in renovat-
ng the Mimes theater which the
University has recently purchased
and turned over to Play Production.

DETROIT MUSIC AND DRAMA
Musical comedy is the only thing
iew in Detroit this week. Fred
Stone and daughters Paula and
Dorothy bring their last season
show "Ripples." The refusal of
mobs in New York to take to this
show last year caused Fred to make
;ome public remarks to the effect
that the public wants "indecency
and he won't give it to them." Well
Detroit is being tested. For over at
'he Cass all week is "Artists and

.Aodels" with Phil Baker, Aileen
Stanley, Shaw and Lee, and myr-
lads of girls, beautiful girls.
