cedure in such cases as the Cramp-
ton-Wolcott campaign, where the
final majority was 81 votes. But
a lead of nearly 5,000 votes for one
candidate is no cause for a recount;
Mr. Groesbeck's charges of fraud
have not been substantiated, and
the whole affair is, an example of
very poor judgement and politics
on thetpart of the Groesbeck
forces. It is poor sportsmanship
and will not help greatly in case
the former governor should decide
to try his hand a fifth time.
"WHAT PROFITETH IT A MAN."
At this time of the year, many
students are disgruntled by what
seems a tremendous perversion in
the editions, revisions and prices of
required textbooks. They often feel
as pawns between the demands of
their instructors and the extortions
of their bookdealers, with the result
that textbooks have far to seek
to hold any esteem in student eyes.
This situation has again raised
the question regarding what justifi-
cation textbooks have with regard
to the courses in which they are
assigned. Obviously the criteria of
a first-rate text include scholar-
ship, clarity, up-to-dateness and an
adaptability to the nature of the
course involved. These make fre-
quent revisions mandatory, and
often induce the instructor to write
his own text for the course in
order to make its contents dove-
tail with lecture material. Further-
more, since professors are too often
underpaid, they quite naturally
place a high premium upon their
written works to substantiate their
incomes.
This is probably the best case
that can be made out for high-
priced and frequently revised text-
books. On the other hand, students,
and especially upperclassmen, are
quite frequently victimized by a
peculiar sort of textbook racketeer-
ing. Too often professors assign a
book for a text for the course with-
out referring to or using the ma-
terial therein supplied. Another
situation is that 'in which a text
is demanded the material of which
is exactly duplicated in the lec-
tures. Many a student too well re-
members the courses for which he
has bought texts never used or
needed; and also those in which he
has heard the same material given
in lectures, has read the textbook
digested from these lectures and
has sat in quiz sections listening
to the instructor intone from these
very pages!
This practice, while not universal,
is of such an exasperating and un-
toward nature as to make those
professors who indulge it seem
unduly profiteering for academic
respect.
THE DEAN'S ADVICE.
"A good record is a student's best
friend," said Dean John R. Effinger
of the Literary college, recently
while discussing the necessity of
students getting down to work from
the beginning. Each year Dean Ef-
finger is confronted with the prob-
lem of students who fail to make
high enough marks to return to the
University the second semester, and
he firmly believes that this situa-

tion exists to a great extent because
the new student takes football
games, parties and dances more se-
riously than the academic work.
Dean Effinger pointed out that
large concerns sending representa-
tives to interview him each spring
concerning the placement of gradu-
ates in their fields are not seeking
the C student, but those who have
records which show they have pass-
ed courses of value with exceptional
standing. "There are too many seed
diplomas floating around now," said
Dean Eflinger.
Since the student body is building
towards the future it is imperative
that it get down to work from the
start, he says. FootballI games may
seem to be the important thing just
now, social life may seem import-
ant; but when all is considered we
are here to study, and to take ad-
vantage of the opportunities the
University offers.
There is no man of the faculty
who better understands the value
of getting a start fromrthe begin-
ning than Dean Effinger. Each se-
mester he is confronted with the
problem of dismissing a number of
students from the University who
have made low grades, and he is
earnestly convinced that the situa-
tion in most cases arises from the

ToSTED ROLL

Ah there, Mr. Average Reader,
I thought I would catch you thate
time! Now don't you feel cheap? G
There you are, just sitting and
gaping like a ninny when there
isn't anything to look at at all.
Get along to class, you lazy oaf,
and heretofore remember to mind
your own business.

The long-promised game has
been completed at last. Now allf
may play, rich or poor; the classi
distinction has been removed, and

GAME.
In this sport the player accom-I
panies the playee to the nearest
soft-drink counter and stands by1
while the latter purchases his
drink. (If he doesn't buy a drink,
you have to wait until next time
or else buy one for him which is
likely to endanger your amateur
standing). When the drink arrives
(about 3-4 of an hour in Ann
Arbor) the player of the first part
points out some object of absorb-'
ing interest somewhere in the store
such as a concrete-mixer, or fold-!
ing bath-tub or some other article
indigenous to soft-drink empor-
iums (emporia). Then, when the
playee (sucker) turns to viw the
indicated object, the player dips
into his drink as many fingers as
he can without being seen or
breaking the glass. In case he does
either of these things he is, of
course, labelled a 'Boor' and ex-
cluded from polite gamesters' com-
pany thenceforth. The scoring is
accomplished by holding before the
eyes of the playee unpon his re-
turn to consciousness the dam-
pened fingers, the number of which
determines the score. The thumb,
if inserted after all the rest, counts
two, but if you can do this without
breaking the glass, you are dis-
barred from competition on ac-
count of the age limit.

. ADDENDA.
(Addenda shovel broke).
In case a more virulent game is
desired, the thrill-seeking element
on campus will find that the game
is improved by flavoring the fingers
in some manner before starting. I
leave the discovery of a suitable
method to the fertile minds of my
public.

AMONGST THE CLASSIFIEDS.

I note that Dr. Coller is to be

I am not quite sure what the
above picture represents. It was
rather blurred up, but I chose it
anyway as something to express
1 my sentiments on the subject of
the Band's 'Rendering Vocal Selec-

1 year. The Stadium is windy enough
as it is.

Further information trickles in
about the band. It is rumored,-

nay, even stated,-that they are
not going to wear those lovely
tunics any more. This is nothing
short of heinous - hyenous - oh
never mind, I don't like it anyway.
What do they think we go to the
games for?

more than it does you. But space

M US , AND DRAMA
CAROLA GOYA
Perhaps the most significant
event on the Mendelssohn's calen-
dar of activity last year was the
introduction of the increasingly
important art of dance through
t h a t marvellous German pair,
Kreutzberg and Georgi. At the time
there was much enthusiasm for an
annual series of dance recitals.
As a consequence came the very
fortunate booking for Saturday
night of Carola Goya, cellebrated
Spanish dancer who has had her
continental reputation enthusias-
tically duplicated in New York the
past two seasons.
Miss Goya's art is quite as far
removed from the skipping and
mincing of the sentimental ballot
tradition as was, that of Kreutz-
berg and Georgi. But in a rather
different direction. Kreutzberg and
Georgi were distinctly modernists.
Their dances were creations of
their own and personal comments
on contemporary -topics (the one
entitled Bad Dreams or Freud in
all his Horror being typical.)
Miss Goya comes from a country
where dancing has long been one
of the most popular modes of ex-
pression. Spanish emotions, Span-
ish events, Spanish provinces long
ago found expression in dance
forms. It is these dances, with suf-
ficient latitude for the individual
artist's interpretative gift, which
Spanish dancers such as Miss Goya
and La Argentina are presenting.
We have only had parodies of them
before.
Miss Goya is an authentic artist.
Quite understandably she willing-
ly disregards the expression of per-
sonal feeling through newly creat-
ed dances for the now timeless
forms which contain the essence
of Spain.Her devotion is to the
communal, one might almost say
religious, aspects of the dance. He
body she dedicates to the perfect
reproduction on the stage of the
spontaneous forms which have so
much :ieaning for her people.
She is only appearing once in
Ann Arbor, Saturday night, when
she will present a long program of
twenty dances. Popular support
of this recital will undoubtedly
make possible the appearance of
other prominent artists during the
year.
THE CHORAL UNION SERIES
I There are several pleasant things
about the series Mr. Sink has ar-
ranged for this year. The first is
especially pleasant. It is also bold.
There is only one opera-star in the
series. Bold because the public
loves its opera-stars. Pleasant from
the standpoint of good music
heard.
One singer, in a series of ten
concerts is about the proper bal-
ance. There will be some excite-
ment connected with Miss Clair-
bert's appearance. Charles Wag-
ner, impressario de luxe, built up
fine color about her before she
touched the American shores. "I
have discovered the best coloratura
in the world, and ah yes she is
beautiful too," he said last spring
to the Associated Press. The Asso-
ciated Press promptly printed the
announcement of a beautiful col-

oratura. Her name? A secret,
Charles whispers. Why not call
her La Coloratura since I think
such to be the case?
Of course she is known now. She I
is Clare Clairbert of the Brussels
Opera, favorite of the King etc.
But Charles has done his work.
Her appearances are eagerly await-
ed. The one here October 31 is I
one of the early ones.
Another good thing about the
series is the fortunate chance to
compare three great pianists (one
could almost say four since Horo-
witz is not quite forgotten). Brail-
owsky, Rachmaninoff, and Iturbi
ought to provide all the piano one
would want to hear in a season
even in New York. And that is
saying a great deal. Iturbi, so soon
after his sensational debut in New
York, is a particularly fortunate
booking.
The two novelties are attractive.
The Don Cossack Chorus is mak-
ing its first American tour. Paul
Robeson will be particularly wel-
come after the enthusiastic recep-
tion London gave his versatility.
Robeson's spirituals will be a treat
after Roland Hayes' sentimental
substitutes.
People who know the story of
Albert Spalding are whispering
nasty things about his appearance

Night Editor-JOHN D. REINDEL
COUNT AND RECOUNT.
Mr. Edward Barnard, Detroit at-
torney and member of the Groes-
beck legal forces attending the re-
count, is certainly not creating any
good will for his candidate or his
party. His methods of keeping him-
self in the public eye, undoubtedly
with an eye to the attorney-gen-
eralship in the future, have caused
so much disgust throughout Mich-
igan that many disgruntled Re-
publicans will go to the polls in
November, prepared to vote a
Democratic slate.
Barnard, who formerly practiced
in Grand Rapids, is not even head
of the legal forces who represent
Groesbeck at the recount. Never-
theless, he has taken it upon him-
self to demand another recount,
for various reasons. His dilatory
tactics have even earned him
rebuke and denials from his chiefs,
0. L. Smith and Groesbeck, but he
blasts ahead with charges and
counter charges of unfairness,
Illegal proceedings, and general
crookedness of the whole recount.
Boiled down, his charges consist of
a complaint of unfairness on the
part of the state beard of canvas-
sers, neglect to furnish him with
complete tabulations of the day's
counting, and illegality of voting
machines.
That the board was or was not
unfair is a debatable matter, de-
pending on whether or not one
means "the breaks" by fairness.
Certainly the attendance of a
representative of each candidate at
each counting table c6uld easily
establish the fact of whether or not
the board had been guilty of favor-
itism, or had made incorrect tabu-
lations. And the fact that names
