featured player ranks, has been of a quality that
leaves little to be desired in the juvenile line.
In this latest production his handling of one of
the most'difIcult situations conceivable in the retinue
of the child actor-the expression of tearful emotion
in the presence of tragedy-is so nearly flawless that
we feel almost justified in terming it perfect. Ob-
viously acting 'of this type reflects a very high degree
of .direction, aild in this connection the work of
Norman Taurog, director of "Skippy" also, deserves
much praise.
The story is frankly sentimental, but, with the
exception, perhaps, of the acting of the few adult
members of the cast, the entire production impresses
the audience with a feeling of sincerity that lends a
quality of realism to nearly all its situations. The
show is eminently worth seeing, it is rather a pity
that Jackie Cooper cannot remain a child indefi-
nitely.
Two other children in the show worthy of mention
are Jackie Searle and Robert Coogan, both of whom
do good parts in support of the Cooper boy. Robert
Coogan is better in this show by far than he was in
"Skippy." K. S.

India
and Gandhi
'T HE British government apparently is not go-
ing to permit a liberal rule in India. Before
Lord Willingdon assumed the role of Viceroy, the
conduct of government in India was one of alter-
nate civil strife and truce, a policy which gave to
Gandhi the right to question acts of the British
government set up as retaliatory measures for the,
civil disobedience campaign of Indian extremists.
Two years ago the civil disobedience campaign
was started by Gandhi following the salt-making
expedition to the sea. For encouraging the viola-
tion of governmental ordinances he was thrown
into prison. Today he is in the Poona jail, not
because of any violations, but because he insisted
,on questioning the authority of Lord Willingdon
in extending to the important cities its ordinances
outlawing the all-India 'Nationaliset party, led by;
the jailed Mahatma, forbidding all contributions
to its fund, and prohibiting demonstrations and
peaceful picketing.
Since the plea for self-independence was made
by Gandhi two years ago, his:position has mater-
ially lessened. At the start of his campaign, it
appeared that he had a united India behind the
movement. But at the second round-table con-
ference in London, it was disclosed that Gandhi
did not have this factor. For one thing, there is
too much strife between the racial elements of the
heterogeneous sutb-continent. ,Again, since the
advent of the civil disobedience campaign, rule in
both India and Great Britain has changed. Lord
Irwin is no longer viceroy and, although Ramsay
-MacDonald is still premier, the government is not
a Labor government but one of a decided Conserv-
ative elernnt. The temper is harder, the atmos-
phere more strained. Naturally, Great Dritain is
not as patient as it was two years ago.

drawings at the Exhibition on view at Alumni Mem-
orial Hall. The Division of Fine Arts has brought it
here and it Will be on view until January 24. Most
of the sketches, about 136 altogether, are studies or
working drawings, a few are landscapes 'or scenes.
Fourteen pieces of statuary are shown and every
sculptor who is represented by a statue has several
drawings. Work done by Frenchmen, Americans,
Italians, Russians, Englishmen and Germans is in-
cluded. The predominating characteristic in the show
is the close relationship of method shown in the
drawings and the sculpture of the artists. Bourdelle's
"Figure of a Boy" is that of a lively youngster, in
which the pose is admirably expressive of the feeling.
From the plastic standpoint it is very satisfying.
Kolbe has a lovely "Standing Nude." Her hands are
folded a bit 4tiffly yet she has a harmony of face
and body, beauty of expression of a rare sort. Chana
Orloff's "Head of Marie Lani" is a sophisticated study.
The smooth, shining surface df this statue is especial-
ly lovely. Malliol has "Standing Nude" which is ivery
pleasing in profile because of its unbroken lines. Hisj
drawings are thoroughly related to his sculpture. The
same kind of outlining and modeling is common to
both. Perhaps loveliest of all is Lachaise's "Head" of
a woman. She is mature, yet has an unlined,,clearly
chiseled face. Her features are in repose, her eyes
are closed, and her calm beauty and delicacy full of
a compelling, yet subtle, charm that makes one return
to her again and again.
Most people find abstractions difficult to under-
stand, to say nothing of enjoying them, and to me
Lipschitz's "Running Figure" comes in this class. His
sketches are careful studies in the composition of ab-
stract form. Degas is represented by his "Dancing
Figure" as well as a realistic charcoal study of legs.
Frank Dobson's "Seated Nude" is typical of his com-
pact, rounded forms, unified both in outline and feel-
ing. His watercolor studies are splotched with vivid
colors and are definite in linear values.
In regarding the sketches and drawing it is neces-
sary to remember that these are not finished produc-
tions in the sense that they are sent out for exhibi-
tion purposes as are paintings. They are merely the
sculptors' working drawings and were used to study
a pose, record an action, catch an exikession or note
an idea. Some are masterly in their economy of line,
the sureness of the brush or pen stroke and must
be counted as achievements as such. A few of them
are carefully finished, as Harold Cash's splendid
studies of backs and hishead of a negress. Malliol's
drawings have much the same feeling for form and
outline that his bronzes do. They are quiet, full of
dignity, beauty and skill. Wheeler Williams makes a.
finished picture. Deftness and surety are shown in
Milton Horn's outline studies, although the forms are
distorted. Kolbequickly records pose and actions in
his wash drawings. Calder's "Tiger Pursuing Zebras"
is very clever and amusing indeed. The line of the
horizon runs through the zebras and the tiger is
transparent, but the result is quite convincing. Darde
gives us four effective, wash drawings, portrait stud-
ies that .are analytical. For clear line andl distinct
shading Eric Gill offers three sketches which are
satisfying. With absolute precision Lachaise draws
figures. One, number 74, is don in fifteen lines. John
Skeaping, an English sculptor of prominence, has a
crayon drawing in which he builds form as he would
do it in modelling. He creates his figure as a mass,
then adds lines' to, accentuate it, the effect is just
like a bronze statue.
Archipenko cuts out part of his figure from a piece
of colored paper and pastes it on to the background
of a different color, .and completes the outline. The
modelling is very carefully done, although realism is
not his aim. Bourdelle has two very attractive water-
colors of imaginative charm, figures of men and wo-
men who terminate gracefully in leaves and branches
of olive trees. Modigliani is represented by a strange
v"Caryatid." Mahroni Young gets a great deal of
action in his laborers, called "Two Men."
Above all, one must bear in mind that these stud-
ies are not final but that they show our most promin-
ent sculptors at work, they are the things one woul
turn up in their studios and they reveal the fact that
these men are skillful draughtsmen as well as being
gifted in plastic 'art. Harriet Dyer Adams.

Poor old Oscar the Wonder Horse
studied so late last night that he
was all tuckered out this morning
and we distinctly hear his brain
just rattling around in his head.
Oscar is like that. At any rate it
gives us a swell chance to give the
student body something just a lit-
tle bit different, something just a
little bit useful, and get away from
the ordinary run of slobber that
fills these columns (plural).

RADIO IN EDUCATION
(India Daily Student)
Much has been said and written about the use
of the radio in schools and colleges. The .nation-
'wide radio chains,, certain individual: stations ands
soVeral stations operated by the schools themselves
now include educational features in their program's.
Some time ago a certain merchant dealing in musical
instrunents employed a teacher to broadcast piano
Although we do not wish to align ourselves with
tHie mosbacks, we do reserve to ourselves the right
to be a'ong the congervatives, and to hesitate to
hail anything as a revolutionary step until it has been
made ab olutely perfect from the mechanical stand-
point and has been subjected to thorough going tests.
To date, the radio offers neither of these. So long
as human nature remains what it is, little Johnny
probably will switch off his lesson in "arithmetic
whenever mother is not watching. So long as the
radio remains without enormous improvements, can
you imanine the effect should the entire third grade
of the United States for any given year miss the
grammar lesson on the double negative because of an
unusual atmospheric disturbance due to the Aurora
borealis?

And now we leave the ancient
liferary works of Laurence StCrne
and consider something that hasn't
even been published yet, the Presi-
dent's Report for the Year 1930-
1931. (The President of the Uni-
versity of Michigan). The new vol-
ume is still at the printers but will I
be on the streets in a few days. And
speaking of the President's Report,
wasn't that a whale of an article
on the President's Report in the
last Gargoyle? We thought it was

There's another literary event
that we havten't taken due notice
of yet: The Examination Schedule.
Last year or the year before we
would have been' afraid to look at
-he awful thing for fear we would
get all of our examinations on Sat-
urday, Monday morning and Mon-
day afternoon. That happened to
us once. We're getting used to that
kind ' of 'thing, and we don't care
anymore. Here is our artist's con-
ception of the new examination
schedule. (This is Tuesday morn-
