proves with this play that he is capable of real
drama as well as the comedies of manners for
which he is famous.
While it is the policy of the producers to sub-
ordinzte the actors to the action in this play, no
review would be complete without some mention
of the superb work of Diana Wynyard and Clive
Brook as the man and: wife who endure two wars,
watch their children grow up and then peacefully
grow old together. They strike a new high level
in acting for the moving pictures.
The supporting cast is perfectly chosen. While

r"

Clive Brook is the only member of the cast who
is familiar to most American pcture-goers, the
other actors will undoubtedly make names for
themselves in the United States as character
actors through this show.

Cologne, Berlin, Nuremburg, as well as numerous
smaller towns. Since I have friends or acquaint-
ances, Jews among them, in most of these local-
ities, I have been pretty well able to remain in
touch with the present developments throughout
Germany. From what I have seen with my own
eyes and from what my acquaintances tell me in}
their letters, there have until now occurred prac-
tically no anti-Jewish actions, let alone outrages.
Any reports to that effect, I repeat, are based,
and I suspect, deliberate falsifications! If a con-
siderable portion of the German people now favors
the boycott of Jewish professional business men
the reason for this must be found in the untruths
circulated by Jews in other countries against the
present regime in Germany. A word to the wise
is sufficient!
In conclusion, it may also be of interest to you
to know that the political prisoners are extremely
well treated. Recently I visited several prisoners
in the neighborhood of Nuremburg, and they told
me that they had no complaints to make. Their
looks, incidentally, confirmed their statements.
This wholly civilized and decent behavior of the
Nazi seems all the more admirable when one con-
siders the treatment accorded to ultra-revolution-
ists and political opponents in the Soviet Utopia.
And I do not believe that the German Commu-
nists would have treated their victims with any
more consideration than the Russians do theirs:
humanity and truthfulness play a very inconspic-
uous role in the Communistic catechism!

ELSA EPPSTEIN-PIANIST
"The thoughts of ,youth are long"-and the
art of youth is serious. Miss Eppstein's per-
formance was characterized by this same earnest-
ness of attach, which made an otherwise very
commendable recital rather a nervous ordeal for
the listener. She feels her music intensely and,
empathetically, one is inclined to feel with her,
Black is more than black to her, and the nuances
of emotion became an even line of sobriety under
the leveling influence of her so serious approach.
But perspective comes with a sense of humor, and
that implies a viewpoint that cannot be expected
from student work.
The Saint Saens "Prelude and Fugue" were well
suited to the pianist's vigorous and hard style of
playing. Her "Tragica" Sonata, which is one of the
most significant works that MacDowell has left,
showed evidence of a grasp of the composition in
its entirety and a poetic feeling for 'the concep-
tion underlying the whole. It might be suggested
however, that she learn the definition of a "forte."

Town Points
By FRANCIS WAGNER

The present concrete bridge across the Michigan
Central tracks and the Huron River dates back
only a little over five years. Previous to that time,
the purpose was served by a wooden structure. A
number of fatal accidents started the movement
for the new bridge and it was passed at a city
election by a vote of 21 to 1.
Tar sidewalks still survive in the Second Ward.
A house on Third Street is lighted exclusively
by old-fashioned oil lamps.
The man who built Nickels Arcade works as an
iceman during the summer.
The present street signs here were preceded by
signs attached to telephone poles. When the pres-
ent signs were first erected, a mania for their use
to decorate rooms resulted in costly destruction.
Ann Arbor voted for Governor Comstock when
he was defeated in 1928, voted against him when
he won in 1932.
On one block on North Main Street, there are:
a German bookstore, a Hungarian lunchroom, an
Italian cigar store, a Greek restaurant, a Polish-
owned billiard parlor, a Jewish clothing store and
a theatre owned by an Irishman.
Two University juniors claim the record for
hiking to Ypsilanti by the Michigan Central
tracks. They made it in one hour and 26 minutes.
Webster's dictionary lists Ann Arbor as a "man-
ufacturing city" in its geographical gazetteer.
Frank Ratti, 917 Packard Street, is a second
cousin of Pope Pius XI, worked as a janitor at
Ann Arbor High School, is now retired.

- HE GOVERNOR'S advisory com-
mittee which drew up the much1
debated Senate Bill No. 120, better known as thea
Beer Bill, included a great many provisions which
have been changed to date by the Senate commit- I
tee on liquor control. One of these provisions,
which we believe should remain as drafted by1
the original group is that providing that no beer
shall be sold to anyone under the age of 18. The
Senate committee advanced the age to 21.
There are two main reasons for adopting the 18
yeair limit, aside from the fact that the men and
women who drafted the bill have studied the
liquor problem and are citizens of high standing,
integrity, and good judgment. The first is to pre-
vent wholesale evasions of the law, and the second
is to prevent what has been going on during de-
pression prohibition, and is still being practiced.
Michigan has'4 law forbidding the sale of cig-
arettes to persons under the age of 21. Needless
to say, this law is probably violated more than the
state and national prohibition laws. To make a
similar provision in the beer bill would only bring
about similar Vholesale evasions of the law and
complicate enfErcement of the liquor control act
to a great extent. Lest it be thought that Univer-
sity of Michignm students are alone to< be: con-
sidered in this matter, it might be pointed out
that similar circumstances are prevalent in many
other towns in Michigan, whether they contain
institutions of higher learning or not. By making
the age limit 18 years, the legislators will be
saving the state police a great amount of work,'
and replace home brew and booze with a legal
beer.
In the second place, sale of beer to persons be-I
tween the ages of 18 and 21 will, to a great ex-
tent, overcome the present distinctly injurious
habit of spiking drinks, or making drinks, with
raw alcohol. Surveys among younger people, not in
Michigan alone, indicates that since the advent
of the depression, this much cheaper form of
drinking has been almost universally adopted. If
the much more healthy 3.2 beer should be sub-
stituted, a death blow could be dealt to the illicit
traffic in hard liquor and alcohol.
We sincerely believe that the age limit of 18
years, as originally inserted by the drafters of the
bill, should be restored in the interests of health
and law enforcement.

ADVENTURING IN TIE
ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT
To the Editor:
The Daily published an article under this col-
umn on April 4,. 1933 in which the writer criti-
cized Professor Handman and the economics de-
partment for not teaching the student other than
"domesticated" conservative theories.
Flaying thoughtlessly, he said "can a student
there (in the economics department) qualify as
an adventurer as long as he is bound within the
limits of Laylor's textbook? Can Professor Hand-
man sincerely insist on education being an adven-
ture while his students are .deprived of theories
in the field of economics that are shaping and re-
shaping the destinies of hundreds of millions of
the human race?"
Wow! Does that mumbo-jumbo strike you as
though it were full of air?
But that is only an introduction to the writer
who proceeds to say:
"Why not teach a course in communism, why
not teach Marx and Lenin? Are you afraid that
students cannot digest such material without the
risk of being overcome by its convincing propa-
ganda? If so, then your students . . . are still
babies." Oh, ma! He is calling me names! Anyone
acquainted with the economics department can
immediately see how silly are these high sound-
ing squawks.
For the benefit of the writer and many noisy
socialists, let me say that the economics depart-
ment gives a special course called PILGRIMS OF
SOCIAL ECONOMIC REFORM. Look it up in
the bulletin if you are interested. In addition to
liberal economic theories, nearly all the "isms" are
studied crtically. Furthermore, there is no basis
for the preceding charges for the University has
provided a wealth of material on economic theory
and "isms"-enough to satisfy the most boisterous
organsms or the champions of Marxism.
Besides, there is no proof to the contention that
economists are afraid to teach Marx and Lenin
because of their convincing propaganda. For one
thing, after a serious study of all sides of their
doctrines, they are by no means convincing. You
can shoot as many holes through them as you
can through capitalism. What is the ballyhoo for
them? Since the writer referred to here is a
senior lawyer, he may be justified if he feels that
a greater knowledge of basic economic doctrines
would have been more valuable to him than the
study of some archaic decisions. But please in-
vestigate before you put your name in print.
