TH E THEORY AND PRACTICE
OF CHEATING
The policy of the University, to
expel students caught cheating in
examinations or in outside work,
has been tried for a sufflcTent time
to prove that it is an unsuccessful
method of preventing cribbing and
unfair to those who are convicted.
Simple observation in almost any
examination shows that the ex-
treme penalty, which was doubtles,
introduced not so much as a pun-
ishment for the offender as a warn-
ing to other students that they
Swould be treated in the same man-
ner if caught, does not eliminate
cheating.
A very small percentage of the
guilty are caught every year. Ther
case is taken before the j udiciary
board, who seem to have become
immune to all pleas for leniency
and in nearly every case they are
expelled.
It seems to be very unfair to the
few students who are caught that
they suffer for something that, ai
one of the more cynical deans ha,
estimated, 70 percent of the stud-
ent body have done. It seems ridi
culous that the judiciary board
knowing that most of the people
who crib arc never brought before
them, should deem those found out,
more undesirable as members of
the University.
Unfortunately, because of the
emphasis on marks which is in
vogue at the present time, there
seems to be no way to eliminate
cheating. The honor system, asi
used in the two colleges, is, if possi-
fb1P, less successful than the proctor
system.
With less official emphasis onl
grades, the incentive for getting anl
education would surpass the in-
centive for getting good marks.
This wouild largely remove theI
temptation for cheating and elim-I
inate the injustice done to the con-i
victed offenders who are given too1
severe a punishment to act asc

¢WHAT!
T understand that the Western
Asociation of College Comics-has
severed relations with "College
-1umor" on the grounds that it mis-
represents college life. They are
I-dso urging that Mid-Western col-
leges do likewise.
Now that makes me pretty
darn nmad all right all right,
they never even thought of
consulting me before they went
and diad a thing like that.
However I'm a good sport, I'll
support their campaign and
even add that inimitable Bax-
ter touch to it by suggesting
that they also sever connec-
tions with the movies, clothing
stores, anid coliege faculties on
le same gi-ounds.
OHI, OH! And have you seen
the MIMES REVIEW? I saw
parts of it last night and--Aw
Nuts! Ifonestly now though fel-
lows, I've seen a lot worse
shows in my time (I'm an old
m-an now and my head is bend-
ing low or I wouldn't expect
you to believe that). The fact
is, however that the show is
getting better so fast that I
should really suggest that you
go to it on Thurs. night when
everybody will know their lines
and won't be tired, of giving
them yet. You all know honest
lUncie Dan wou ldn't send you to
something you wouldn't like-
aren't you mny public?-Oh is
that so? Well, just for that MR.
Smiartie, you don't have to go.
Gee! The Pherret certainly got

KREUTZBERG AND GEORGI I.
A Review
Kreutzberg and Georgi deepened,
if possible, the impressions of gen--
ius they left in their recitals last{
year. They are still super-b artists --I
vivid individually and sensitively
adapted to one another - whose ,
compositions have an immediate
and forceful appeal ---an appeal
quite difficult, almost impossible, of
definition.
Objectively, the dances are pat-
terns of significant movement, var--
led with moments of sculpture,
which are intense formalisations of
certain emotions and meanings. In
this, not different perhaps than any
other art. But one's experience of
These art-objects is made unique by
the uniqueness of the art-medium
-the human body. Kreutzberg and
Georgi create a whole world of ani-
mated forms that awake in us a
throng of active sensations that our
general mode of life has atrophied.
Their cr-eations are "moving" har-
monies of living forms, masses, out-
lines. We are ill-equipped for things
in the flux, clinging as we ordinari-
ly do to things at rest, to land-
marks. The vividness, beauty and'
significance of these dancers' life in
motion takes us by surprise; gradu-
ally leads our own passional lives
into awareness-possibly of our own
latent possibilities - of our own
bodies! Thus aware, I think the
essence of the experience then be-j
comes a sort of empathy (or feeling
ourselves into the experience of the
artists). We ourselves express, and
in the formal expressing, discipline
emotions familiar to us. The famil-
iarity of the mediumn, the body,j
makes such a process vividly possi-
bie in experiencing the art of the
dance. That is, in Kreutzberg and
Georgi's version of the art of the
dance. Only observation, perhaps
an occasional sentimental sigh, is
demanded by the mincing ballet
tradition, whose devotion to the
"idea" of decorative grace was per-
hiaps always a little fanatic and is I
in this age certainly inappropriate..
Kreutberg and Georgi are not
satisfied with the intrinsic thinks
the body is itself capable of-such.
as grace. They wish to relate body
to mind and emotion: thus making
it technique, an expressive instru-1
ment. In doing so they have not
only made dancing something more'
significant than "decoration" but
they have actually discover-ed a
new suppleness and variety of
motion that the ballet never had
known.

ICaptain Dan Grants
tierview an Santa
by Godfrey.
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Dec. 10.-
When interviewed late last night
on the subject of the Rolls Hoop
Expcedition to the North Pole to
Find Santa Claus which he pro-
poses to conduct, Captain "Dan"
Kleinschmidt Baxter stated that
ho has decided not to conduct a
Rllhs Hoo Expedition to the
North Pole to Find Santa Claus.
"Ioosmy dear!" he frowned,
besides, the censors just finished
wit"A Mimes and are headed our
Th;.:t seems to make the whole
projeoct seem pretty futile and
hoopless.
STOP--THINK!
This is the time when we all
nave to settle down and think
oY some nice inexpensive gift
for thie folks in the Yuletide
Spirit. Now I realize perfectly
well that you had already de-
cided to give Uncle Joe a nice
box of nmanilla cigars, but hon-
estly now, don't you think that
'is getting just a little stale?
Why not make it something
like Fig. 14 a. seen below? I'm
sure that Uncle Joe would be
simply delighted with a Fig. 14
a. You would too, and there's
no use your trying to deny it
either.

I really can't help you much in
the line of whiat you should give

and therefore have nothing from
which to judge what she would like
to have, but I should suggest some-
thing like this.

Last night's program contained
several new creations: a Lulli Hymn
quietly displaying the perfect hiar-j
mony of their styles as dancers and
Miss Georgi's (?) skill in composi-
tion, in juxtaposing and relating
thematic designs. Miss Qeorgi's
new dance "Arabian Drean-s," is
probably her best dance with the
exception of "Kassandra." It quick-I
ly establishes a remote Oriental
atmosphere, and proceeds to a mys-
terious, sensuous toying with em o-
tion: an Oriental reticence broken
by intense, frank moments of pas-
sion.
Kreutzberg's two new dances were
less impressive. In both of them,
"Jubilate" and "King's Dance,
there is more exuberance and more
"magnificent dancing' 'than the
music can bear. As a consequence,
they seem more nearly "show-
pieces" than do any of Miss
Georgi's dances. Kretuzberg is, of
course, the more splendidly certain
dancer of the two. He is also the
most immediately entertaining of
the two: his personality seeming to
be largely vivaciousness, geniality,
frank humour, tender-ness: easily
perceptible qualities.
Miss Georgi, however, in her se-1
end appearance seems the more
elusive, the deeper, the more in-
tense. Kretuzberg has no dance to
match her "Kassandra'"-in which
sheer agony is projected in all its
intensity by her trembling body
and torturous pantomime. Kreutz-
berg never gets as emotionallyin
volved in his cireations as does M1iss
Georgi in this dance.j
The "Angel of the Annunciation*'!
remains his best dance. Sharp
angles give the tremendousness of
the occasion of the Angel's appear-
ance and a straightly stretched,
soaring body its significance, its
spiriuality.
The sensitive, joyous composition
they dance to Mozart Variations

If you haven't-start today and get it over
with. You'll be surprised at the mental re-
lief which comes to the person who gets all
his shopping done early. 'Why not do it in
Ann Arbor before you go home for vaca-
tion this year? The local merchants can
offer you everything that your home town
stores can-and may be more too. They
have large stocks anticipating your needs.
