able alumni from Michigan.
ORTHODOX OPTIMISM.
President Hoover's remarks with
regard to the country's economic
condition, delivered before the
American Bankers association, may
be described as an appropriate
piece of orthodox optimism. He
made a very calm survey of the
financial and business depression
offering reasons for the fiscal low
ebb which concur with those ad-
vanced by professional economists
and experienced business men. In
dealing with some causes he prac-
ticed a well-conceived self-re-
straint, and it is also to be noted
that Mr. Hoover made no definite
prediction regarding the time or
extent of the recovery to prosperity
in which he firmly believes.
This speech, ',given before the
country's greatest bankers, was
politically strategic and appropri-
ately well-timed. When most of the
known causes of the business slump
are at least indirectly attributable
to loss of confidence and general
pessimism, the influence of the
bankers in effecting a recovery to
stabilized conditions becomes pro-
found. President Hoover pointed
out to them ways in which they
could assist the people to attain
a more optimistic mental attitude
in the face of imminent hard times
this coming winter. He showed how
banks through co-operating with
the Federal Reserve board and
meeting every legitimate demand
for credit could facilitate resump-
tion of business on a large scale.
While the country's economic
experts are probing for the aca-
demic causes of the present slump,
the President's display of firm faith
in the resources and recuperative
powers of the United States cannot
fail to do good in correcting undue
pessimism about the future.

DWINDLING LOAN FUNDS.
Michigan, .at the present time,
is confronted by one of the greatest
problems in its history. Dean J. A;
Bursley recently announced that
the total available loan fund for
needy students is approximately
half of any previous year while the
demand this fall is the greatest in
history. Of the $240,000 which has
been given the University by gen-
erous alumni toward this noble end,
$180,000 was in circulation on July
1 and doubtless there will be but
little of the original'left when the
present loans are totaled'and an-
nounced.
Following an announcement that
the University was in distress in
this worthy field, three alumni
donated a total of $1,500 to be used
for such purposes. One gift was
for $1,000, another for $200 and a
third for $300. Not only were these
gifts unsolicited but they came
within 48 hours of the printing of
a mere story of facts concerning
the loan situation. In the story
absolutely no appeal was made to
alumni, - no shirking of duty was
evident, no resolve to withdraw
from the task of attempting to fill
more than double the requests for
loans with but half the normal
capital.
It is seldom possible to comment
editorially upon achievements of
persons or institutions in words of
praise without feeling a slight
tremor that perhaps one is over-
doing the greatness of the act or
achievement in question. Such,
however, is not the case with don-
ors of thfee such useful gifts as
came to the Dean's office this week.
The old controversy as to which
shall we tolerate - the outward
show of power and splendor, or
the quiet search for real knowledge
-crops up with the receipt of such
gifts. Persons may give, and rightly,
large sums of money to finance
great football stadia, fine show
places, beautiful uniforms for one'
event or another, and yet may miss
the real basis of college life. It is
with relief that such timns a the

Editorial Comment
o
MR. HEARST IS KICKED OUT
OF FRANCE
(From the Daily Cardinal)
Monsieur Tardieu, premier of
France, could scarcely have known
what a kick upwards he was giving
to William Randolph Hearst and
his newspapers when he recently
ordered the 67-year-old millionaire
journalist out of France. The Hearst
organization, money-wise, is cash-
ing in on what would have been
insult and embarrassment to many
another man, and Mr. Hearst finds
himself the recipient of civic cere-
monies and political ecomiums wel-
coming him back home.
"Expulsion of William Randolph
Hearst from France is an act of
official pettiness," the Chicago Her-
ald and Examiner quotes Gov. Em-'
merson as saying. "It is direct con-
tradiction of the American ideals
of freedom of the press and is not
justified by the facts in the case.
Under the circumstances, his ejec-
tion is a reflection not on him, but
on the government of France."
James A. Reed, former senator
from Missouri, waxes warm over the
fact that Mr. Hearst "has done a
fine thing to call the attention of
the American people to the spine-
less attitude of our government to-
wards the rights of citizens
abroad"; Mayor Curley of censor-
ridden Boston censures France for
its "sad departure from the chiv-
alry which this nation (France)
claims for itself" and from the "in-
ternational principles of the Mar-
quis de la Fayette;" Marcellus E.
Foster, Texas publisher, swears that
"he is not going back to France
until her attitude toward America
changes"; and Massachusetts' Sen.
Walsh asserts that "an explanation
is due from France; it is about time
that we find out the value of the
American passport."
Behind all the clap-trap of cere-
monials and the sophomorisms of
politicians we can see the hand of
the Hearst business office guiding
every move to the clanging of the
Hearst cash register. These martyr
stories increase circulation; increas-
ed circulation pays, and Mr. Hearst
has never been found wanting in
turning to cash register purposes
propaganda, for a war with Spain,
forged Mexican documents, et al.
Indeed the inter-state functions for
Czar William is just another edi-
tion of the Ford-Edison national
"Diamond Jubilee of Light" public-
ity stunt. (Mr. Edison was incident-
al; selling more electric products
was the thing.)
Monsieur Tardieu's act might not.
have been expedient, but our state

The fact is, fellows, I am not
feeling my best after that game
yesterday. Not that I would seem
to criticise the team. Far from it.
But I do think that there should
be a law against cheer-leaders who
exhort us to emit foul noises at
times when the band is doing its
best to sweeten the air with melo-
dies such as "The Star Spangled
Banner."
* .. *
The Band wasn't perfect
either. They missed one of the
swellestchances to run over
the Referee I have ever seen.
All they had to do was lengthen
their stride a trifle and they
had him; but the big sissies
turned aside at the crucial
moment, and a great oppor-
tunity was thrown away.
* *
Not only that, but I saw a woman
enter the front door of the Union
the other day. Not content with
stealing our swimming pool be-
cause their frivolity prevented their
having one of their own, they are
stealing our prerogatives as well.
I shouldn't be at all surprised to
see our fair sisters parading the
streets with masculine prerogatives
adorning their hats. No sir, not
one little bit surprised. I foresee
that in a very short time indeed
we shall be exceedingly short of
prerogatives. And let me say right
here that nothing looks any sillier
than a man with a short preroga-
tive. That is, hardly anything.

AMONGST THE CLASSIFIEDS.
FOR SALE: Three evening gowns;
also painted face scarf.
That is a swell thought, that
painted face scarf business. If
all women with painted faces
wore scarfs over them the world
would be a much better place.
And think of the savings in
cleaner's bills!
Say, another thing about yester-
day's game. There is a large re-
ward offered to the man, woman,
or student (Professors ineligible)
who can tell in not more than five
hundred words just what the band
was trying to represent out there
during the intermission at the half.
I noticed something else, but I
guess I have given the band all
it can stand, or I have given the
Band stand all it can, or-let's let
it go at thatfellows, I think you
understand by now that all I
meant was that the Stand can had
all the band.

I note that "Noted German
Chemist is to Lecture on Mon-
day" according to a recent
headline. This is another chance
for the ever alert Rolls staff
to aid its public. Through the
efforts of the Pherret, we have
dug up enough information
about the subject noted above
so that we are able to save you
the time you would spend in
a lecture hall listening to a lec-
turer. The facts, in their sim-
plest form are merely that
Monday is the day of the moon,
although I haven't the slightest
idea why. I could never see that
there was anymore moon on

Monday than any other day-
Maybe I just didn't look. Come
to think of it, I am sure I
didn't. In addition to this we
have, through long experience,
come to look for Monday at
the beginning of the week, al-
though there are some people
so perverse as to say that it is
really at the end.
And if any chemist thinks he
knows more about this than I do,
just send 14m around.
The Pherret has brought in the
news that on a great number of
ticket order-blanks there is a state-
ment to the effect that extra Pur-
due tickets may be purchased for
$0.00. I am in favor of holding them
to that. It would serve Mr. Fielding
Hooray Yost just right if we did,
and besides, maybe next time he
wouldn't be so anxious to sign his
name all over the nasty things. If
he is to get all the checks made
out to him in person, he might as
well be made to stand some of the
hardships too.

MONDAY NIGHT: In the Men-

tion picture Old and New. Sergius
Eisenstein, the Russian film direc-
tor responsible through his Potem-
kin and Ten Days That Shook The
World, for most of the trends in
cinematic experimentalism, was en-
gaged by the Soviet government to
make a series of pictures of which
this is the first. The material of
the picture is the Soviet attempt at
a welding of agrarian and indus-
trial civiliza$tions. In the picture, it
is said that Eisenstein is allowed

CAROLA GOYA
A Review by W'illiam J. Gorman
Carola Goya last night presented
a program of traditional and mod-
ern Spanish dances to an audience,
the size and enthusiasm of which
certainly makes plausible the idea
of a series of dance recitals
throughout the year. Such pro-
grams are a distinctive addition to
Ann Arbor entertainment.
And this in spite of the fact that
Miss Goya proved an inferior art-
ist. In two fields she seemed in-
ferior. She lacked quality of
emotion and technique to be signi-
ficant in the difficult tradition of
established folk dances. And she
seemed to lack the intelligence and
the musicianship to create new
dances of any but a decorative
significance.
Comparison with La Argentina
will perhaps illuminate this infer-
iority. (I think it quite justified,
also, since three of four of Miss
Goya's creations used the same
music as those of La Argentina).
It was La Argentina who rescued
the traditional Spanish dances
from the vulgarising and falisfying
influences of musical comedy gyp-
sies. With the few formulas allow-
able in the folk tradition (the fact
of tradition being very probably
here more a restriction than a sup-
port,) she developed marvelous
suppleness and variety of motion.
This much is commonplace criti-
cism of La Argentina who is New
York's favorite dancer.
What she seems to have done is
the transforming into style of
dances that had been rude stam-
mers of -instinct; the disciplining
of native dancing passions into
formal patterns of motion. Yet
because of the richness of her own
sensibility she never lost the force
of instinctive expression. Underly-
ing and always apparent in the
harmony and grace of motion was
a nervous, trembling ardor. This
intensity (which I take to be the
only quality that makes these folk
dances significant experiences) she
largely communicated by continu-
ous vivid life in her torso. There
is an intense feeling resultant in
the audience at the sight of a lithe
body trembling with its participa-
tion in patterns which ankles are
executing.
As I saw things last night, it
was just this impassioned quality
which Miss Goya lacked. Her torso
was dull, stiff, cold. Her body wasn't
lithe and supple enough to be an
intense instrument of expression.
Her appeal remained largely deco-
rative. She seemed to know the
figurative foundations of t h e

dances and to execute them well.
But the added expressive force in
the medium doing that expression
was missing. Her first group of
dances lacked richness. The de-
lightful lavishness of the costum-
ing (La Argentina is very modest
in this respect) may have rendered
some unconscious compensation to
the audience. But that type of
appeal is a somewhat illegitimate
extra-appeal.
Miss Goya's technical incompe-
tence was particularly noticeable in
one of her own creations: the Fire
Dance from DeFalla's opera. She
actually evaded the exciting ryth-
mical problems implicit in that
music by interpreting the more dif-
ficult ones with her fingers. There
was no boldness at all. The use of
the body was very feeble. La Argen-
tina, who created the part, gives
all her varied strength to an ex-
tremely elaborate interpretation of
this number which was in the cli-
mactic position on her Detroit pro-
gram.
Miss Goya's Tango was another
dull dance, being little but a mat-
ter of steps and a lovely black dress.
La Argentina gives to a Tango, exe-
cuted without a partner, the cur-
ious melancholy of isolation and a
thwarted desire for embraces. It is
a matter of richness.
Significantly I think, Miss Goya's
