THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 1933
At The Umniversity . .
AT THE PRESENT juncture, when
the University- is passing through
one of the most critical phases of its history, many
people are thinking-about the .true nature of its
function and position.-,As. President Ruthven
pointed. out .before the legislators who gathered
Monday at the-Union, this institution is engaged
as much in learning as it .is in teaching.
Perhaps no aspect of the- University is so fre-
quently overlooked by persons fiat "directly in con-
tact with it as this function of studying. Astonish-
ment is of ten expressed. by way of example, at
the discovery that .some members of the facul-
ties here teach ,bt twree orlour or a half-dozen
classes a week, Persoxis, who are!surprised 'to find
this out forget that knowledge and information
must first be -acquired if,- they, are to be .passed
on in the. classroom .
President Ruthven showed Monday that grad-
uating lawyers and. doctors- and engineers must
know a. great deal more today than was neces-
sary twenty years ago., Competition continually
demands new- methods, new standards of em-
ciency and expertness.. Where is the logical place
for the research- that- results ,in the technical and
cultural, advancement that mean the progress and
betterment of mankind? The answer is, obviously
enough,-in the world's universities.
The University men who do ,the work cannot
be in two. places at once, so there are professors
here who are not able to spend all of their time
teaching. Their not spending all of their time
teaching is probably . the,.chief reason why the
State of Michiganis able to pride itself on pos-
sessing one of the world's great-universities.
- It is rare that the public learns of all the re-
sults of a research experiment. -Naturally enough
the part that it does hear of usually has more
to do with the fanciful and colorful aspects of the
discovery made than with the underlying, often
dry, but significant truth that is .brought to light.
It is to be expected that fault will be found with
the expenditure- of much money and - time .in-
vestigating, for- instance, so :remote a subject as
the waltzing mice of. China. Yet, - as President
Ruthven pointed out Monday, a great deal of sig-
nificant information regarding the inheritance of
a much dreaded disease has been learned through
the experiments with the Chinese waltzing mice
that have been carried on here. Of this immeas-
urably valuable aspect of the work, however, the
public knows little-or nothing.
The business of this University, in short, is the
acquisition as well as the dissemination of infor-
internationaa tendency; rather mhan of nationa-
If the President's policy continues in the future
to be consistent with the ideals he has thus far'
manifested, it will probably shape up something I

Careful regulation of such inflationary meas-

activities of corporations, in order to protect the
stockholder and the laborer. Realization of this
appears close at hand.

This is not a prediction; it is a probability. The
President is not a socialist, but he has his so-
pialistic tendencies. If he follows them rationally,
a bright future may be prophesied for the nation.

AT THE MICHIGAN
**SYLVIA SIDNEY TAKES UP WITH
A CAB DRIVER, PRETTY GOOD
Another Vina Delmar story of the,big city has
been made into a talking picture. This time it
tells of the girl railroaded into prison on a black-
mailing charge and released two years before her
gangster husband. The wife, Sylvia Sidney, deter-
mined to go straight, keeps away from her hus-
band's crooked friends and finally is forced to
take refuge in a taxicab. The cab driver, being a
decent sort of a fellow, takes her home and in
due time they fall in love. Then the husband
breaks out of prison.
Sylvia Sidney shows considerable skill in her
delineation of the woman determined to go
straight and make something of her life at all
costs. George Raft, as the taxi driver, however,
acts very like a cigar .store Indian.
This is a pretty good picture on the whole and
if you've seen "Cavalcade" this one provides fair-
ly good entertainment for two hours.
Accompanying the picture is a very good Mack
Sennett comedy. It's about a golf-playing dentist,
but it is good nevertheless. There is also a very
bad short subject of Ethel Merman singing.

"Cocoanut in pastel shades," says a culinary
note, "is now for sale and it is very effective." All
of which reminds us that it is only a matter of
days now before some enterprising baker will
come out with mauve and orchid tinted pretzels.
