There are those incurably blind
idealists who choose to ignore re-
ports of friction and oppression,
remaining firm in their belief that
conferences will solve everything
and that brotherhood and sym-
pathy have in some occult way be-
come stronger than nationalisn
and hate, because millions of
youths were murdered in a mam-
moth capitalistic struggle. In re-
futation of this, Dr. SCHACHT, ir
his address, stressed the fact thal
Germany's very existence as a na-
tion has been threatened by th
confiscation of investments mad:

European nations, he said, (in thei

ward restitution.

The only new arrival of the weekE
in Detroit is the inimitable perfect
fool, Ed Wynn, who comes to thel
Shubert-Detroit in his latest vehi-
cle, "Simple Simon." New Yorkr
criticism last season suggested that'
this musical comedy which ven-
tures into fairyland is the finest
vehicle so far for the irresistible
comicalities for this rare comedian.
It contains, of course, the ihevita-
ble inventions for protecting the
human race which are Ed Wynn's:
annual scientific contributions. The
supporting cast includes the popu-;
lar Harriet Hoctor, Wini Shaw.
Marguerite Breen and Jack Squires,

The Detroit Civic Theatre has
found its best production to date
with Donald Ogden Stewart's "Re-
bound," that witty comedy which
tells of a young couple wedding on
the rebound. Mr. Stewart's repartee
is, of course, notably sharp. Emily
Ross, who last year so happily
played the Hope Williams role in
Philip Barry's "Holiday," is again
cast for a Hope Williams role.

only theatre devoted to the intelli-

acreen ReflectionsI
Mod-led closely after the Broad-
way hit of the same name, the
screen version of "Good News' at
the Majestic is somewhat handi-j
capped by the familiar song hits
but does manage individual acting
and considerable comedy to be
pleasing entertainment.
The usual rah-rah aspect of col-
lege life as typified in most stage.
and screen productions seems less
trite-due mainly to the injection
of clever dance routines and one
or two new song hits, mainly, "Gee,
But I'd Like to Make You Happy."
(Aw, g'wan!)
Had the original plot, wherein
the star fullback is almost kept
out of the big game by flunking an,
examination and is taken in by one
girl when he really loves another,
been slightly revamped for the film
version, "Good News" would have
been a far better picture. As it
stands, there are several unneces-
=arv interludes in the general high
trend of comedy and music.
Be sie Love of perpetual youth is
as satisfactory a tough co-ed as
could be desired. Her antics with
Gus Shy, the lesser half, are one
of the bright spots of the picture.
Especially good are their antics and
dancing in the "Gee, But" duet
number, and it is an education in
itself to see that blond peril "Roll
'dem bones!"
Another shining star is Dorothy
MeNuilty of the original New York
stage company, seen as Flo, the
dark-haired freshman who burns
up the floor in the Varsity Drag
number, as cleverly executed a j
dance routine as has yet been re-
corded. Stanley Smith as the 'and-
some 'alfback and Mary Lawlor are
satisfactory in the two leads, with
Cliff Edwards comical in a minor

Night Editor--BEACH CONGER, Jr.
Yesterday's Chicago game sawl
the end of the 1930 football season
which, experts say, was a success
frog start to finish. Michigan, un-
defeated, tied with Northwestern
for the Big Ten championship and
again is rated among the "cham-
pions of the west."
Several highlights cropped up
during the schedule just past which
stamps it as one of the most unique
years in Michigan history. Michi-
gan State, with one of the best
teams in its history, started the
major part of the season by hold-
ing the Varsity to a scoreless tie.
Michigan came back from a 13 to
0 score to beat Purdue, 1929 cham-
pions, 14 to 13 in the Big Ten
opener and, after beating Illinois
and Ohio State on consecutive
weeks, went to Harvard for the
first time in 16 years to beat the
inspired Crimson, 6 to 3. The Harv-
ard week-end will never be for-
gotten by those who went East for
the game. Comment universally
called the Harvard series a "great
T h e Detroit-Michigan charity
proposittion was the big feature of
the season, however, and definite-
ly proved that the political gestures
of the state administration still
have little or no effect in swaying
the University's more thoughtful
Captain Simrall and his fighting
crew are done forever and a new
eleven will rise next fall to bear
Michigan's colors. Will this same
"luck" which seems to have follow-
ed the present destinies guide the
Wolverines against Princeton and
the rest in 1931? Or is it "luck"?
It is our guess that a better word
would be "spirit," for there is sure-
ly something behind the breaks
which invariably come our way.
From the remarks of Dr. HJAL- ,
MAR SCHACHT, speaking in the
university lecture series last Thurs-
day, one may well draw the con-i
clusion that American idealism a-c

Niles, Michigan.)
"Athletic Elephantiasis" is the
terse term used by Dr. Alexander
G. Ruthven, president of the Uni-
versity of Michigan in his address
today before the Association of
American Universities at Washing-
ton. This remark came as an apos-
rophe to his declaration that
ntercollegiate competitive spores
s now operated in our big univers-
ties "can NEVER be justified as a
spectacle for adults, even in tax-
upported universities."
When we consider that President
Ruthven is a conservative who does
'ot make statements just for pub-
icity, but rather after mature
judgment which follows close study
)f his subject, his remarks must
)e given more than passing notice
Speaking as he does as the chief
;xecutive of one of the great uni-
versities of the country, his remarks
ilso carry the weight of an author-
ty who knows what he is talking
-ibout. President Ruthven doubtless
will come in for criticism by those
who consider intercollegiate foot-
'all one of the great features of
)ur present day educational tradi-
tion. However he is to be con-
;ratulated for the courage it re-
luired to make such a declaration
>f his opinion. It is to be hoped
that his rather startling statements
will mark the beginning of an era
of sane thought about this import-
ant problem of college and uni-
versity life.
Parents make sacrifices to send
their sons and daughters to the
University so that they may be
better fitted to take part in life's
battles. Perhaps some lung exercise
is obtained by the thousands of
students to attend these games,
but the active part in the games is
limited to a squad of thirty or
forty players.
President Ruthven offers as a
substitute for the "Roman Holi-
days" into which intercollegiate
games have been developed, new
plans that will place more empha-
sis upon intramural sports in which
almost every student on the campus
will take part in one way or an-
other. Our university now affords
many excellent facilities for these
contests among students, but even
now they do not touch the activi-
ties of one-fourth of the students
on the Ann Arbor campus.
The large British universities
operate their sports strictly on an
intramural plan- contests between
dormitories, clubs, classes a n d
