lore On The
hidget Cut . .
N AN EDITORIAL appearing in
The.Daily yesterday, it was pointed
ut that the proposed cut in the state appropria-
on to the University of more than $2,100,000,
hich the legislature is considering, would seri-
usly cripple the standing of the University and
ould be certain to raise the rate of tuition.
A complete tabulation of the income and budget
f the University for 1932-33, as of January 31,
)33, follows:
THE Estimate of Income for this fiscal year, as usedI
y the Regents in approving the budget for this year
as as follows:
Tuition and other College and School
Fees .......... ......$1,225,000.00
Laboratory and other Department Fees ... 32,000.00

have the faculty representation and the student
representation voted as separate blocks. So again
the fears of the councilmen can not be based on
what has actually happened.
It cannot be denied, of course, that the power
possessed by the Senate Committee might enable
it, some time, to act in a way which students
might consider detrimental to their interests. It is
inconceivable that such action would ever be ma-
licious, but it might result from failure to under-
stand a student problem. An impartial view of
the matter must take this into account, and we
hope, with the Council, that ultimately a more
autonomous form of student government than the
present will evolve at Michigan. But to say that
the Senate Committee actually has shown itself
reluctant to adopt Council proposals is simply to:
ignore facts.
Business Manager
Of niversity Houses .
THE APPOINTMENT of a business
manager of University houses is a
step forward on the part of the University to help
reduce the cost of living for students. The eco-
nomic soundness of such a move is apparent. By
buying food and other supplies in large quan-
tities it will make it possible for the dormitories
to reduce room. and board prices. Furthermore,
the centralized management will make it possible
to put into effect economies which cannot be ac--
complished under the present system.
It might be well worth while for fraternities and
sororities to study this new plan, for it is quite
evident that, if the dormitories can save by pur-
chasing through a central office, other organiza-
tions can do likewise. As it is now, each house
buys independently, with the result that only
small, if any, discounts are given. House man-
agers who have not had previous experience in
buying food frequently make purchases which are
costly. If the houses co-operated, therefore, and
hired someone who was well-trained in the field
of kitchen management, they could save a con-
siderable sum of money each year. At Notre
Dame, the manager of the student eating places
receives $10,000 a year in salary. Surely if they
find that it pays to hire a man at that salary,
it would be worthwhile to try it here.
'What If?'
American Game . .
T HE GAME OF "What if?" is the
greatest indoor sport of the Amer-
ican people. No sooner does a war break out in
the Orient than we begin feverishly wondering,
"What if our country goes to war?" No sooner
does Hitler seize the government of Gerniany
than someone shouts, "What if Roosevelt estab-
lishes a dictatorship in the United States?"
It is this latter question which. is occupying
much speculation now. When examined in the
light of day, however, it comes almost within the
class of absurdities.
The German people have been suffering greater
hardship than we have. Their standard of living
was not so high in the first place and it has
dropped more. They were more in the mood to1
grasp at a straw than our nation will be for years
to come, and, especially, to grasp at a man who is,

double characterization of the fearful girl and
that girl's body inhabited by the wandering spirit
of her soul's lover. She did it primarily by using
her tremendous voice-range to best possible ad-
vantage, and secondly by varying her carriage
and gestures appropriately for the two parts.
Paul Wermer, as Rabbi Azrael, read line after
line of the highest type of high emotional drama
that carried with it the power of convincing
acting at a tremendous pitch.
Others in the 26-man cast who deserve special
mention for their good work were Paul Sissman,
as the messenger, and Theodore Cohen, Morris
Isaacs, and Joseph Lesser, as the three Batlonim,
or professional prayer-men.
As to adverse criticism, we feel again the need
to plead with Miss Cohen to use her gestures more
guardedly. In "Hedda Gabler," because of the
neurotic character of the part, they were more
acceptable and in the portions of "The Dybbuk"
that dealt with the possession of Leah's body the
same was true. However, in her characterizations
of the normal Leah they were definitely bother-
The entire effect of "The Dybbuk" as Hillel
performed it is definitely favorable. More than'
that, the work of Miss Cohen and Mr. Wermer
and of the others mentioned was distinctly laud-
able. We won't guarantee that you will like it,
and if you don't understand it you won't, but to
us "The Dybbuk" was a success.
The impossibility of restating, an age in the
exact terms in which it was at first defined is one
of the sorrows, and perhaps the consolations, of
man's limited lifetime. The moral of "Everyman,"
"all earthly things are but vanity," is definitely
not of our age. Yet through all art, if it is art,
as in all life runs a thread of immortality that
binds the heterogenous parts into'the concept of
a whole. The allegorical morality play of the
Fifteenth Century seemed a retrogression from
the growing reality of the Mystery and Miracle
plays that preceded it, but, paradoxically, its ab-
stract qualities only linked it the closer to life.
With the introduction of contemporary traits into
the characters began the delineation of character
and the conflict of human passions that have
marked the tragic drama ever since.
A usual characteristic of nearly all Moralities
was the pursuit of Everyman, or Mankind, by Evil,
Forces, and his rescue by Conscience or Wisdom.
The names of the forces' may change but the
struggle still continues. When the thought and
emotions of man became personified, and these!
abstractions were made personal, the germ of
tragedy was reborn, and its development has
formed the history of the drama from the time
of Shakespeare down to Eugene O'Neill.
To James Doll, the director of the play, must
go the credit for the adaption of this old allegory
to modern use--a version which was intelligently
and imaginatively conceived and lent itself sur-
prisingly well to the means at hand. The highly
effective costuming designed by Frances Young,
and the musical interludes by the organ and choir
of St. Andrew's church, contributed to a presenta-!
tion which was an admirable if rather emotion-
alized achievement for the Guild. Mr. Doll, as
"Everyman" was outstanding for his sympathetic
portrayal which was consistently in character with
the part Sarah Pierce, the Second Narrator, a
striking figure in gray, Charles T. Harrell as

Student Council And
Senate Committee . .
A T THE MEETING of the Student
Council Tuesday night the im-
pression was clearly given that most councilmen
believe that the University Senate Committee on
Student Affairs is reluctant to adopt Council
proposals and suggestions. Some councilmen ex-
pressed a fear that as long as faculty men are in
a majority on the Senate Committee it will be
difficult, to get Council suggestions accepted.
The most cursory study of the facts of the mat-
ter reveal that these councilmen have no warrant
for their statements. For during the past two
years the Senate Committee has adopted with
but one minor exception not only every Student
Council proposal, but every proposal which has
come from the Interfraternity Council as well,-
Significant measures which the Senate Com-
mittee has passed in the last two years on the
recommendation of either the Student or the In-
terfraternity councils include those lowering grade
requirements for fraternity pledging and initia-
tion, relaxing deferred rushing rules, and per-
itting all freshmen to live in fraternity houses.
In additionthe Senate fCommittee has approved

to revert from the unknown to the known, from
the experiment to the proven.
In America the case is entirely the other way.i
From the earliest settlers to the latest immigrants,
our population is made up of objectors to the
old system. Behind us instead of a thousand
years of monarchy we have four hundred years
of popular liberty-a liberty ever jealously
How,then, can anyone imagine such a people
tamely submitting to such tactics as Hitler has
employed in Germany during the past few weeks?
He has suppressed opposing newspapers; he has
forbidden opponents to speak over the radio; he
has buttoned up and stowed away the Reichstag
and the president; he has forcibly banished from
the land thousands of the most industrious and
valuable of its citizens-the Jews. Let anyone at-
tempt any of these outrages in the United States
of America and such a storm of indignation would
arise from every corner of the country that no
personality and no uniformed militia could with-
stand it.
Our politicians may overtax us, they may "beat"

equal praise, so, to the company as a whole must
the final commendation be given.

Recently published figures to the effect that

mind the old gag about the white horses eating
more than the black horses mainly because there
were more white horses.

A people fraught with emotion, with primitive
superstitions, with a naive medieval belief in pre-I
destination are those about which the psycholog-
ically complicated plot of "The Dybbuk," current
of Laboratory Theatre, is built.
It is only through a complete resignation to the
racial and mystical spirit of the play and a whole-,
souled sympathy for the strange psychological
problems of the people it represents that the
casual observer can bring himeslf to any degree of
appreciation for the remarkable characterization
it contains.
The Hillel Players, through musical and lighting
effects, as well as through generally good staging,

audience not at all difficult.
