greater amount of the wants of the
more fortunate members of the
University. Student services and
agencies that are controlled by the
University with the profits going
to the students that operate and
manage them have been tried and
have proved successful at many
schools throughout the country.
Laundry service, shoe repairing
agencies, pressing establishments,
student controlled book and cloth-
ing stores where the co-operative
plan would pro-rate profits would
be a valuable recourse for income
to the working students.
Of more immediate necessity is
the relief which would be achieved
if persons having board jobs, room-
ing places open which may be
rented through tending furnaces,
odd jobs, or permanent positions of
any kind would communicate with
the employment bureau at the
dean's office. The duress and strain
of staying in school which many
students are experiencing is so
great that even the slightest assist-
ance would be of tremendous im-
portance. Certainly there need be
no further argument for this help
than the plight of these students.
AIDING DETROITERS.
Even in a period of economic de-
pression as severe as that which
has gripped the United States for
the past year, it is still compara-
tively easy to find men who will
speak in glowing terms of the out-
look for the future, whose chief
stock is a rather time worn appeal
for optimism but whose activities
extend little further than the
speech. Much more difficult is it
to find men in positions of import-
ance who will take definite steps
to end the crisis.
Recently, Mayor Frank Murphy
of Detroit has issued orders to the
effect that all the hiring in the
city departments should be done
through one central agency. He has
made very explicit his orders that
the men that are hired must be
married and have families to sup-
port and, since his inauguration
into office, he has done much to
rid the city of political job-holders.
Even though the number of men
affected by these particular orders
may not be large, it is still a move
in the right direction. Such action
by the mayor of a great city is
invaluable when compared to the
words of the optimistic speech-
maker and may, quite probably,
lead to more definite moves by
other men in positions of public
prominence.
Behind it all is the indelible
stamp of political astuteness, for
this movement may well be ex-
pected to gain the favor of Detroit's
unemployed. But it will undoubt-
edly do much to ease the economic
depression in Detroit.

THREE
LOUSY
CHEERS'.

,

Several of my acquaintances
among the fairer sex have come to
me in tears with a sad story of
how their seats for the Purdue
game are located in the cheering
section. The poor dears haven't
the slightest idea of how to behave
in such a place, and in addition
they don't like the idea of having
to hold up colored cards in front
of their faces when they want to
watch the game.
Here is a wonderful business
opening ,for ambitious young
men who want to lay in a sup-
ply of periscopes to sell to the
members of the shout-squad so
that they may see the game as
well as those who sit in the
student section and are thereby
excused from having to cheer
at all.
*s * *
From the performances of the
student body at the last few games
I have attended, the players would
get more encouragement if the
cheer-leaders did the vocalizing
and let the stands go through the
funny motions. The guy that sat
in front of me at the last game
put on a show with a bottle and
a program that I defy any cheer-
leader in the country to parallel
with any amount of equipment.
No fooling, though, this -new
system is really a whiz. Just so long'
as I don't have anything to do with
it, I enthuse without stint, but I
dare anybody to suck me into try-
ing to run the thing,-or, for that
matter trying to keep the cards
straight myself.
Dear Dan:
Upon reading your scathing de-
nunciation in yesterday's Rolls I
was ,naturally enough, just a trifle
incensed at what I believed to be
your injustice. Then, after looking
back over the past years, I found
that you were entirely right. I had
been sadly remiss in the matter
you mentioned. If anyone had asked
me, I should have attributed it to
the lack of opportunity, but a
moment's honest communion with
myself showed me that this was a
mere excuse. I, therefore, set about
to seek a chance for some romantic
and chivalrous adventure. No
sooner had I started on my quest
than I saw a beautiful girl whose
face showed clearly that she was
sad and discouraged. I immediately
followed her as she walked de-
jectedly down the street, sure that
I could find some method of aiding
her in her trouble. Unfortunately,
however, I had no sooner started
after her than I slipped and
skidded in a very undignified man-
ner to fall at her feet. At this her
expression grew still more sad, and
as she lifted me to my feet she
sighed and said-a trifle petulantly
perhaps-"You're the third half-
witted, slue-footed bozo I've had to
help this week. Why don't Michi-
gan Men (she capitalized it very
carefully) learn to walk?" I lifted
my hat (after retrieving it from
the gutter) and thanked her grace-
fully which, I think, ought to rate
me some sort of an award.
Very Sincerely Yours,
Arthur T. McWhoosh.
* * *
Good work, Arthur me bye,
Uncle Daniel is certainly proud of
you. You have certainly merited
some sort of a prize, but I am
afraid that nothing I could give
you would properly express my
sentiments.

And the rest of you birds,-I hope
this lad's spirit will move, you to
higher things, and if you can't
rake up a chivalrous bone in your
carcass, and do simething nice for
one of our beloved sisters, you
might send in an idea for some
way to get the nuisances
off of the campus.
* * *
Dear Dan:
In French class it seems there
was a story in which the main
character was reading a newspaper.
Just to find out how many had
really done the stuff at home (al-
though it really isn't done, is it
Dan?) the prof asked what the
name of the paper was. The first
(and of course only) answer was
"The Michigan Daily." And the
answeree just couldn't understand
why it wasn't thus. More power
to us! !

FAMILIAR NOTES.
A NOTE IN MUSIC: by Rosamond
Lehmann; by Henry Holt and Co.,
N. Y. C.; Price, $2.50.
A Review.
It is pleasant to note Miss Leh-
mann's second novel as a best-
seller. "Bestiseller" regains some-
thing like an accurate connotation
with such an event.
Miss Lehmann just at present is
a charming personality, who reads
the best novels well, and writes
very well. Her latest novel, A NOTE
IN MUSIC, very refinedly borrows
the 'contrapuntal structure popu-
larized by Aldous Huxley but in-
vented by Andre Gide in "The
Counterfeiters," uses some of the
fundamental intuitions of Virginia
Woolf, politely emulates the same
lady's excellent style, makes an at-
tempt here and there at Proustian
reflections. And yet it never gets
tangled, never moves off a very
clear level of apprehension.
Actuallyn one of the material is
new. The novel deals with the
problem of Woman's sensibility, its
pangs in an unsympathetic setting,
its Emily Dickinson-Elionor Wylie
stone-like attitudes in thise situ-
ations. Yet Miss Lehmann's assimi-
lative intelligence (excellent writer
of excellent second-rate novels that
she is) works so fluently that in
the first reading one never realizes
the type of integration that has
taken place. One has enjoyed the
novel. Even upon the discovery of
the ways of its structure, one is
grateful for getting significant
(One will 'recognize these things
things integrated so pleasantly.
more intelligently when it is time
to go back again to Virginia Woolf,
Huxley, Gide and Proust.)
Such best-sellers are easy, pleas-
ant worthwhile reading. More of
them are welcome. It is quite prob-
able that in England (which has
novel traditions) such books appear
more often. For us a "best-seller"
has more insidious connotations.
Reading of our best-sellers more
often distorts than assists the mini-
mum of significant reading done.
Miss Lehmann writes her story
primarily of two women of lively
sensibility forced into inadequate,
torturous marriage-relationships,
succumbing to them externally,
escaping them in mental attitudes:
Grace who is married to Tom (a
likeable, stupid fellow whom his
fellow clerks call "good old Tom")
in beingElinor Wylie-like "stone
before the world, telling no one 'I
also suffer'"; Norah, who is married
to Gerald, a penniless professor
desperately introverted and com-
pletely nasty socially, in a pretence
at sociability and social work and
in preoccupation with her children.
Into the lives of these four middle-
aged people comes a happy couple,
brother and sister, Hugh and Clare,
very dexterous socially, with charm-
ing eccetricities, and a general air
of having attained a happy secur-
ity in their sensibilities.
Mild pyschological complications
ensue. Grace makes Hugh the sym-
bol for the happy freedom denied
her, gains personal strength in her

slight associations with him, and
finally reaches some sore of pyscho-
logical solution through the deli-
cate opportunity of telling him
what he has meant to her. Gerald
temporarily abandons introversion
(which is largely self-defence for
him anyway), makes a desperate
social effort in his attempted con-
quest of Clare. This failing, he and
Norah fall back into their old rela-
tionship with some new strength
gained after that climax and the
consequent discussion and under-
standing reached.
As should be apparent, the struc-
ture is very lucid and entirely
admirable. Miss Lehmann has a
nice Virginia Woolf feeling for "the
weight of things not said" and an
astute gift for getting at those
things. The only thing that makes
the novel definitely minor is the
insignificance of the material: that
is, the limtiations of the people
written about, which, I suppose,
means in turn the present limita-
tions of Miss Lehmann's sensibility.
And in addition, the apparent lack
in Miss Lehmann's intelligence of
the moral approach: the function
that evaluates material. She merely
accepts the situations she writes
about.
Another well-worn term that has

STUDENT UNEMPLOYMENT.
Figures compiled in the office of
the Dean of Students indicate one
of the most unfortunate years in
the history of the University's
efforts to find employment for
needy students. With the reports
for September and the first days
of October on file, more than 800
have filed their' names as appli-
cants for any kind of a job what-
ever, from dishwashing to painting.
Only 125 have been taken care of
by the dean's office.
With the demand for positions
more than double and the scarcity
of available openings greater than
in past years, Michigan students
are finding difficulty in locating
even temporary employment in the
city. Although the employment
bureau handles only those who
wish its assistance and does not
come into contact with hundreds
of students previously employed
and now at, the same posts, the
figures at the dean's bureau indi-
cate the shortage of general stud-
ent jobs.
An anlysis of the employment al-
ready found for students shows the
ephemeral nature of the situations
on file at the University office. Of
the 492 given jobs, both temporary
and permanent, before October 1,
107 were board positions, 37 were
for room rent; 325 odd jobs earning
but a few dollars each, and 23
steady cash positions. In one case
brought to the attention of the
employment bureau this year, a
student was forced to leave school
after classification, registration and
payment of tuition fee because he
had but 34 cents in his pocket and
was unable to secure a position.
Some amelioration has been
found through loans; but even this
recourse has been unusually pinch-
ed through lack of funds for use
this year. Despite the good offices
of several alumni who have made
outright cash gifts to the Univer-

RUSH WEEK IS OVER;
FRATERNITIES CHECK UP
(From Ohio State Lantern)
It's all over.
A new crop of pledge pins has
blossomed forth on the campus,
and wvhile star fraternity salesmen
are recovering their voices, house
managers are figuring out the
budget and getting a line on just
who was pledged during the last
wild week.
Whether or not the neophyte isI
satisfied with the fraternity, or vice
versa, will become known in the
next few weeks. He's pledged now
and it's just too bad if a mistake
has been made.
A number of cases of this nature
will show up soon enough. They're
the inevitable result of high pres-
sure rushing tactics. A few of the
dissatisfied pledges may obtain
their release and join other fra-
ternities, but the majority of them
will hang on in the hope of be-
coming adjusted to their new sur-
roundings. It is hoped that they
succeed.
That many fraternities were not
so sure of their pledges was shown
by the rush at the Pledge Registra-
tion Bureau when it opened Sun-
day at midnight to receive the
names of the new men. To the
surprise of officials of the bureau
and veteran fraternity men, no
freshman had signed two cards
and there were no duplications.
But now attention is centered on
the new bureau, where all the
pledge cards are tucked away care-
fully in the files. If there are argu-
ments over any of the pledges, the
bureau will clear them up. And if
any of the boys want to change
fraternities, there is where they
will go.
