Yet if Governor Roosevelt is will-
ing to dissociate himself from
pure party supports and rely upon
the confidence of the people of
New York he will have gone far
toward satisfying the voters as to
is own honest intentions. The cir-
cumstances surrouding T a in-
many's corruptibility makes such a
stand imperative; in the event of
Governor Roosevelt's failure to hit
the issue squarely, the governor-
ship which was a few weeks ago
safe within his hands may have
slipped or been lost completely.
A BID FOR LEADERSHIP.
No one on Michigan's campus
who is alive to student well-being
can ignore the impending actions
of the dean's office and the Inter-
fraternity council with regard to
deferred rushing. Yet this measure
is only a barometer indicating
a progressively mobile attitude
toward fraternities in other aspects
than their rushing.
It is quite pertinent, therefore,
and even tremendously important
that those representatives selected
for the Interfraternity council by
intelligence, leadership and alert-
ness to the issues at point with
regard to club affairs. Never before
in the life of fraternities on Mich-
igan's campus has so definite an
offensive thrust been made toward
them. The Council this year is
a position by way of being momen-
tous for two reasons: the serious
nature of the particular matters
with which it must be concerned
demands an energetic vigilance
and earnest consideration; the
willingness of the dean's office to
await the council's proposals for
the enforcement of deferred rush-
ing is motivated by a hope that
that body will supply an efficient
and trustworthy plan for fraternity
co-operation in rushing under new
rules. The future of student leader-
ship and voice in the management
of campus as well as their so-called
private affairs depends largely upon
the quality and nature of the work
which the Interfraternity council
undertakes this year.
It is quite clearly apparent, then,
that the former practice of send-
ing to the Interfraternity council
those members who had nothing
better to do, or who could do their
house no wrong, or who were the
only gullible ones available must
be abandoned. If the houses this
year fail to elicit the greatest forces
of leadership and intelligent inter-
est in undergraduate affairs for
the new council, we predict that
a sorry step will soon be taken
toward a re-focussing of student
matters in the eyes of the admin-
RELEGATED TO THE BACK-
(From Yale Daily News).
Soon Yale will induct into serv-
ice a new University pastor, and
he will find himself confronted
with the problem of religious apa-
thy on our campus. By this we do
not mean that Yale stands unique
as the home of the atheist and
agnostic, but simply that there are
comparatively few of her students
who look upon religious worship
and belief as a vital force in their
Aside from the psychological or
theological aspects of the modern
religious situation, we have con-
stantly felt that a very real cause
of the apathy aforementioned is
ignorance. Religious education is
not zealously sponsored by the
churches outside the Roman Cath-
olic Church, whatever it might be
in that institution; it is left to the
family, who leave it to the schools
and colleges, who neglect it.
At Yale we have courses, well
taught and comprehensive, which
deal with the Christian religion.
But this is not sufficient. The asso-
ciation of intellectual brilliance
with religious indifference has come
about because of an attitude such
as is adopted by the average
instructor in the schools and col-
leges. This individual, imbued with
the doctrine that nothing should
be believed before investigation,
and teaching the same lesson to
his classes, has found religion in-
accessible. Too much of the emo-
tional side is demanded of him,
and he cannot give it without first
finding intellectual support. So in
all his lectures he passes slighting-
ly over the one field which has
resisted his scientific attempts at
analysis, and religion drops into
obscurity in all courses but those
few especially detailed to cover it.
Undergraduates will not yield to
religious faith, until they have
learned something of the facts.
They will not elect studies that
Well, fellows, today we go to seef

MUSIC AND DRMA
TONIGHT: In the Mendelssohn
Theatre beginning promptly at
8:30 a dance recital by Carola
Goya, celebrated Spanish artist.
MOLNAR APPEARS AGAIN IN
Henry Miller, a producer not
particularly famous for integrity,
tried to slip a program of two
Molnar pot-boilers into the very
difficult theatrical season last Mon-
day night. The Violet with Ruth
Gordon and One, Two, Three with
Arthur Byron was the program. I
am happy to record that the New
York critics soundly trounced Mr.
Miller for his attempt, calling par-
ticular attention to the miserable
over-writing in both plays, which
contained hardly enough material
for good one-acts, to the obvious
shoddiness of the direction, the
inadequacy of everyone in the
minor cast, and the consequent
terrible burden placed on Miss
Gordon and Mr. Byron, two of the
most . competent and interesting
actors on the American stage.
The Violet is a vaudeville skit
about the deplorable tendency of
feminine theatrical applicants to
offer their bodies to managers
(illustrated soundly by four girls
acting in good burlesque tradition)
and the eventual success of one
girl who exploits an extremely
subtle naivete (played by Ruth
Gordon so charmingly and with
so many intriguing, indefinable
aspects of technique as to almost
make the piece worthwhile).
"One, Two, Three" satirises in
an obvious, unsubtle way the effi-
ciency of the contemporary busi-
ness *man. Nordsen, a modern
Napoleon, is suddenly presented
presented with a situation in which
he must change a burly taxi-driver
with boots and a mackinaw into a
sophisticated member of the aris-
ticracy- an admirable theme for
a musical comedy sketch. A whole
banking organization is called into
play. There are, of course, amusing
moments but the affair becomes
very tedious in twenty minutes and
it lasts an unintermissioned ninety.
Arthur Byron, the late warden of
The Criminal Code, gives an amaz-
ing display of virtuosity, excel-
lently varying his tempo, manner
of delivery, and style of motion.
The incident is merely another
illustration of the American pro-
ducer's deplorable habit of forcing
us to see our best actors in bad
pot-boilers. Yet it has a possible
local relevance. Here and else-
where, there seems to be a general
opinion that Molnar is marvel-
ously "playable." A better opinion,
I think, would have it that Molnar
(with the exception of Liliom, per-
haps The Play's The Thing, and
one or two others) is seldom worth
playing at all and then iplayable
only by virtuosi, who can add tech-
nical interest to compensate for
the inevitable thinness. There is
no Ruth Gordon or Arthur Byron
among amateurs. Molnar's is per-
haps the most over-rated reput-
tion in America. The fact of hav-
ing sat through One, Two, Three
and The Violet makes this judge-
ment almost a grudge. Yet there
has been local evidence too. And
then last year in New York, Mima,
the magnificent flop.

NEW YORK'S GOVERNORSHIP.
Two circumstances, both highly
trenchant, have somewhat ruffled
Governor Roosevelt's once smooth
course to re-election in New York
state's November vote. One marked
change in the political outlook is
the bringing over of the Repub-
ican party to a statement in
favor of repealing the Eighteenth
Amendment. The second is the
renewed charge of corruption in
Tammany affairs. Six weeks ago,
Governor Roosevelt's renomination
and re-election would have been
conceded by all save the staunch-
est Republican leaders; now there
are earmarks of an embrogio in-
volving even Catalinian tendencies.
The Republican stand on Prohi-
bition was obviously intended to
equalize the two parties on that
issue. And while the Wet question,
judged from the standpoint of
party strategy, has probably been
removed from the contest, the sops
thrown to the Dry Republicans at
the same time the stand for repeal
of the Eighteenth Amendment was
taken and the more virile and ex-
plicit statement of the Democrats
in favor of repeal seem capable of
annoying the Republican forces.
The Tammany corruption charge
undoubtedly accounts for the nom-
ination by the Republicans of
Charles H. Tuttle, who stated in
accepting the race for office that
there would be only one issue in
the coming campaign, namely, that
created by recent disclosures con-
cerning the judiciary in New York
city and the refusal of John F.
Curry, leader of Tammany Hall,
and several district leaders to
waive immunity and give testimony
before the grand jury.
The reaction of the Democrats
to graft in high places was in the
usual amusing party form. Former

inating Governor Roosevelt, loudly

After an absolutely dark summer,
Detroit theatres are opening with
shows of quite promising calibre.
The Theatre Guild has opened its
Detroit subscription season with
Shaw's "The Applecart." New York
critics hailed the play as Shaw's
most loquacious and most un-
dramatic: which has been his trend
for some years. The interest now
seems directed more toward the
production which contains, among
other things, some dazzling virtu-
osity from Tom Powers in whose
part lies "the longest speech in the
history of drama." The Guild's vow
to produce all of Shaw one has
long thought an unfortunate de-
cision; yet its persistence in that
tradition has given its Shavian
productions a technical interest
that attracts patronage even when
the play is thought to be weak.
Next week Arthur Hammerstein's
musical romance of the 90's "Sweet
Adeline" will replace "The Apple-
Cart" at the Wilson. This show
