FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1932
in the nignt clubs, while not a howling success, nas
a straightforward manner and a true-to-life way of
saying things that make him seem real, rather than
just another actor. It is in just this point that Anita
Page and Marian Marsh fail so miserably. Both read
their lines just as if they we're reading lines, rather
than as though they had something to say.
We recollect that about four years ago when
"Broadway- Melody' hit the screen -as the first all-
talking musical comedy, Miss Page suddenly sk'y-
rocketed to a high position much like that now occu-
pied by Marian Marsh. Today she is almost forgot-
ten. People get tired of such large doses of sweet-]
ness, if, indeed, it can be said that they ever had
a taste for the ga-ga school of screen love. We notice,
incidentally, that Greta Garbo and Joan Crawfort
are both doing very nicely. Maybe that's because
they're bothi over eighteen. K. S.

WASHINGTON, Jan. "7.-It must
have been with mixed feelings that
"those war-worn democratic veter-
ans, Jamea 'M. Cox of Ohio, John
W. Davis of West Virginia and Al
Smith of NewYork, accepted invi-
tations to come down to the Jack-
son Day dinner and touch off the
opening oratorical guns of the 1932
As standard bearers of their party
respectively in 1920, 1924 and 1928,1
they were the logical keynoters to
sound off for 1932.
Two of the three, Cox and Smith,
paticularly Smith, are figures in
the preliminaries of the 1932 race
for the democratic nomination.
Davis, despite the fact that he led
the forlornest hope of the lot in
1924, has not even been speculated
about as a 1932 possibility.
Long 'Awaited Chance.
But the thing that stands out
this year as not at any time since
the first Wilson nomination in 1912,
is that the democrats believe that
a real chance of sweeping their
man into the White House is at

paign of 1928; but" the other two

Certainly John Davis did. If ever
a democrat was drafted as a sacri-
fice to the necessity of keeping the'
party organization going, however
hopeless the outlook, he was.

echoes of that prolonged deadlock
of the 1924.convention in old Madi-
son Square Garden still rumbling,
he could hardly have had a mo-
ment in the campaign when he ac-
tually expected to enter the White

might have en their political
destiny had the call for standard
bearer service been deferred to 1932.
The very atmosphere of that din-
ing room will be surcharged with
a wholly cIiferent excitement from
anything any one of them could
have known as party nominee.
For the first time in all those in-
tervening years democrats are in
the saddle in at least one branch
of the government, the house. And
all the maneuver/ng to push intra-
party conflicts out of sight is an-
other tangible evidence of how

trio may, of course, be recalled ,as

The freshmen are now entering the most trying
month of their college career. Ink many cases the,
month of January will be a turning point upon whichi
hinges the. furtherance or the end of their college
With final examinations less than a month away,
sports and all extra-curricular activities should be !
relegated to the background in view of the import-
ance of "hitting" these final tests. If past years are
any indication of the average, there will be a parade
of homeward bound first year students immediately
following the compiling of first se'iester grades.
There seems to be no adequate remedf for this situ-
ation, its solution resting with the individual in prac-
tically every case. However, it might be well in or-
ganization houses and halls if the upperclassmen
would deviate from the usual procedure of merely
warning the freshmen, and demonstrate the serious-
ness of this period to them by encouraging every man
'in the house to get down to work. Such an example
would probably do more to promote study than any
amount of lecturing could possibly accomplish.
The freshmen of 1932 will be the leaders in the

The Don Cossacks left today for a long tour of
100 concerts to the Pacific Coast and return, most
of the trip to be done by auto bus. They appear here
on January 13. in the Choral Union Series in Hill

Louise Nelson, of the piano faculty of the School
of Music, will give, the following program, Sunday'

of the School of Music under Professor Albert Lock-
wood and after teaching for some time at the School,

she returned to resume her duties at the School and
won distinction through her public performances:
