Briand, theit : ~ j~i~k ;
THE death of Aristide Briand, whose body is
lying in state in Paris, is mourned throughout
the civilized world. While he lived, Briand had
a profound faith in the ultimate reasonableness
of men and nations; and now, with the eloquent
silence of death, his spirit continues to plead for
Unlike many idealists, Briand always kept his
feet on solid ground ; his thoughts were undoubt-
edly often in the clouds, but he never lost sight
of the fact that dreams must be practicable if they
are ever to come true. His plans for international
amelioration were always presented in logically
composed treatises and pacts; his convincing pre-
sentation rarely failed to get his proposals signed.
Of Briand, perhaps, more than of any other of his
countrymen, may it hence be said that in him
French logic combined with Gallic emotion to
produce an international statesman of the first
We have neither time nor space here to review,
all that Briand accomplished during his lifetime of
service, but it would be impossible to speak of his
death without recalling at least a few of his
achievements. The informal meeting between
Briand and Stresemann, the German foreign min-
ister, in the cafe in the little village of Poiry, which.
resulted in the treaty of Locarno, is already classic
among stories of diplomatic proceedings. Germany
and France, by promising never to war against
one another again, took a definite stride in the
direction of world peace.
The Kellogg-Briand peace pact, at least half
due to the latter, will always elicit praise for this
Frenchman, who, representing a nation tradition-
ally inclined to war, signed a promise to remain,
forever at peace.
In 1929 Briand proposed a plan for European
union. His method for forming a United States
of Europe, as the proposed union has been termed,
is still much discussed. Although changing con-
ditions may render this plan impractical, it will
undoubtedly guide the statesmen of tomorrow in
their attempts to fulfill the need that the modern
interdependence of nations makes ever more vital.
Like all other products of his fertile, kindly mind,
this document wil forever remain a monument to
the genius and foresightedness of its author.

Time and again there has risen editorial lament
concerning the student monopolist, that student
everyone knows, who, either because of his zestful
ardour for acquiring knowledge or, more likely, be-
cause of his fanatic hunting for high marks, appro-,
priates the classroom discussion. Admittedly a petty
problem, it still is annoying and, to a degree, injur-
ious to those who share his presence in class. The
detrimental effect of desultory student chatter upon
classroom propriety, upon the various students' brow
made feverish by exasperation and the hopelessnessI
of the situation is too well realized for furtherI
By the time such a student reaches his junior year
and still is as incorrigible as ever, the. situation is
well nigh hopeless. At least with a freshman, whose
tendencies and habits are set in a foundation not
too firm, he can with pleasure be told his faults with
the probability that they will be corrected. But of
course, with an upperclassman, it is different. And
besides, it wouldn't be such a pleasure to tell him.
But how distressing is this too visible manifesta-
tion of the failure of home-training, of the past
secondary and even college education which have!
allowed the individual to retain this disagreeable
habit, this aggressive selfishness for fulfilling, in a
superficial manner, his desires, a habit which will of
necessity become more intense, more offensive, as
his desires are heightened by ambition.I
EDUCATING CHILD PRODIGIESr
A new and progressive step toward the solutionI
of our many college educational problems has beenI
taken with the announcement by Northwestern uni-
versity that 12 child prodigies, from 13 to 15 years.
of age, will be admitted to the university for thef
express purpose of becoming objects for study.
What to do with these young students has long
been a stumbling block. Many universities refuseE
them admittance because they feel that they simply
do not fit into campus life. Older students regard
these prodigies as youngsters who are either to bea
ignored or to be taken care of like babies in arms.a
In turn, the prodigies very often realize their mal-
adjustment and grow self-conscious.
Northwestern plans to give the precocious young- I
sters a wide latitude in their field of study and to
interest them in all the outside activities possible.I
In this way, the university authorities hope to pre-
vent early specalization on their part. .They hope
to prevent the students from choosing a narrow
range of subjects and neglecting all others; for al-
though the student may become a genius, there is
an equal chance that he may become a complete
AT THE MICHIGAN
"She Wanted A Milionaire" is just about what the
title would lead you to expect, but aside from a few
major difficulties in plot, the picture is entertaining.
The story begins in a small Missouri town, where
Joan Bennett is a beautiful, honest, pure brunette.
Joan goes on an engine ride with an employee of
the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe, and a little later
on finds herself in a beauty contest in Atlantic City.
There are a lot of lovely scenes full of things that
are always found at beauty contests, and finally,
strangely enough, Joan wins the cup.
Una Merkel is a bit disappointing because she
tries to be a sophisticated, hard-boiled newspaper
woman instead of a naive dormitory girl, and her

The latest development in
the Lindbergh mystery is that
Mr. and Mrs. Al Capone have
sent expressions of sympathy
to the Lindberghs and ha e
made statement sto the effect
that they, (t h e Capones),
would feel every bit as bad as
they (the Lindberghs) feel if
their (the Capones's) son were
stolen. Al Capone, that typ-
ical, square-jawed, American
business man, has offered $10,-

the kidnapper. Hurrah for the

GARGOYLE iS OUT TODAY!

The new Gargoyle
in all its
splendor is now to be had for the
nominal sum of fifteen cents on the
campus and at all newsstands. We
are particularly fond of the full
page caricature of Uncle Joe Burs-
ley on the first page. Thomas M.
Cooley, 21, has announced that the
picture is eminently suitable for
framing and that if anyone wants
a good copy of the caricature he
can get one printed on heavy
enameled paper upon application
at the Gargoyle office. We are also
very partialrto Gurney Williams'
article on Fire Exit signs. This is
also suitable for framing.

Large numbers of our campus boys have seeded
the upper lip. Their cultivation of the badge of
manhood gives us examples of both tragedy and
comedy in a minor key. Their programs compare
with congressional reforestation projects.
Few of our pseudo-men will ever bring back the
mustache cup of our forefathers. Most of them are
incapable of producing even the chin down of a soft
bosomed Adonis. Campus politics, strong cokes, pat-

Undoubtedly it is worth a great deal more to you. As it contains
the notes taken in all your courses, it would probably inconvenience you
to say the least if you lost it. But there is always an opportunity of recov-
cring it especially if all the faculty, practically all of the students and many
of the residents of Ann Arbor are helping you hunt for it. This seems
impossible but it is in effect what you are doing when, you run a lost and
found ad in The Michigan Daily. This student publication is delivered
every morning to all of the faculty, practically all of the students and to
many of the residents of Ann Arbor.
Forty-five cents is the cost of running a classiaed ad in The Michi-
gan Daily. As your notes are of no value to anyone else, anyone finding
them is only too willing to return them to you providing you give tlm ai
opportunity. Do so by calling 2-1214 and inserting a classifid ad.
