Ott World Affairs...
and finally has proven unsuccessful. There is a1
future for the Anti-Saloon League, if it is able to
exist with any degree of energy on a basis of
exactly what its name implies, and nothing more.
But most of its energy has been devoted to
thwarting efforts of the wet element to drown
the Eighteenth Amendment, or, at any rate, the
Volstead Act; and both Michigan and Minnesota
have gone irretrievably weU, with other states;
rapidly following suit.
Mr. Holsaple's admission of the vigor of the
fight he has had to put up is an unwitting con-I
fession that the Eighteenth Amendment was
wrong. His continuing fight would seem now to be
pure obstinacy, although it very probably is basedC
on moral conviction. At any rate, it seems possible
that Mr. Holsaple and many of his colleagues will
shortly find themselves out of jobs.
Four stars. means extraordinary; three stars very
good; two stars good; onle star just another picture;
no stars keep away from it.

(As an aid in interpreting the stars used in this
column to rate the films, it might be said that
four stars corresponds roughly to the scholastic
grading of A, three stars to B, two to C, one to D,
and none at all to an E).
Beginning with Jack Oakie's remark, "Luray

ever happens," this picture is a rather poor imita-j
Lion of "Grand Hotel," with the setting a, southernI

The action of the play centers around the race
in which most of the characters have placed bets
on different horses. The audience is interested in
seeing that the horses of each of the cast come in
first, but the favorite wins. Everybody was pretty
Sure he was going to win, however, and everything
somehow comes out all right in the end.
None of the cast are especially outstanding but
credit goes to Thomas Jackson for a good char-
acterization. Jackson is the man who invariably,
takes the role of the tough but soft-hearted de-
tective and this show is no exception. Carole

have decided that his painting is abstract. There
are indeed several kinds of abstraction in El
Greco's painting-the story, the religious, the vi-

instrument of expression by these-but they are

arisiing from fertility of soil rituals, which grew i
from man's warfare with the natural elements or
his own fears or those of his enemies.
The savage bedecks himself with eagle"s plum-
age, he moves as he saw the eagle move, but het
does not become the eagle. Actually, he gives
his eagle-abstraction man's thought and emo-
tional processes. The eagle may represent courage
to man, but the eagle itself is courage, and un-
aware of that courage as an abstraction. It is
something the eagle cannot abstract from himself.j
What the savage does is to make the eagle a man-j
eagle, make him move as man thinks the eagle
moves, and behave as he thinks the eagle would
behave if the eagle were man. What we think of,
as his abstraction is actually literature.
Man paints trees and waves and man-their,
essential form, which he says are the actual,
the integral trees, waves, and man. But what
he paints is literature. It may be abstract or sur-
realistic literature, but content, no matter how
non-literal or visionary or obscure, is in that,,
painting, literary, music, or dance-form.
Another thing: the artist may plumb the secret
places of man's worlds for abstract truths, but if
he is an artist he does not keep his discoveries 1
secret, or his discovered truths to himself. He
does not say, as do certain of our ofcial abstrac-
tionists when asked for the meanings of their ab-
stract messages, "No one can understand me but
myself." That, too, is "literature!"

A MOVEMENT to do away with wars
by means of educating the people
to the problems and viewpoints of other nations
through .international conferences has been stead-
ily gaining momentum during the past decade,
and, it had done much to acquaint the people1
with world problems. The colleges and universities
of our country are the best organizations to spon-
sor such conferences, however, for they have not
only men of great background to discuss the vari-
ous phases which enter into the question of world
peace but many students from foreign countries
who can present their sides of the question.
International peace cannot come about by hav-
ing nations sign their names to a "scrap of paper."
People of the various countries must be made to
realize the tremendous loss of life and property
which is inevitable whenever war breaks forth in
any part of the world, and they must learn to
settle their difficulties with other nations over
the peace table.
All students should be extremely interested in
the International Conference which the S.C.A.
is sponsoring 'from May 4 to 7. It will .provide an
opportunity to hear the unofficial spokesmen from
various countries, who will not attempt to give a
diplomatic discussion of the topics before the
conference but a sincere viewpoint. This confer-
ence is an invitation to the students of this
campus to add one more block to the wall that
is being built to shut out war. Those attending
the meetings will undoubtedly be given a clearer
outlook on the question of international affairs.

ON "ABSTRACT" DANCE
By MISS ANGNA ENTERS
(Editor's Note: Miss Enters' article, written espe-
cially for The Michigan Daily, is doubly interesting
because Miss Enters is being presented in two dance
recitals during the comling Dramatic Season at the
Mendelssohn Theatre, following Martha Graham's ap-
pearance in the festival last spring. Angna Enters'
method is the antithesis of Miss Graham's. Her
dances frankly "tell a story." Her music numbers
are filled with literary atmosphere and background,
,as .contrasted with Miss Graham's "abstract" com-
A belief most strange to me is the odium which
attaches to the painting, music, dance contained
in an apparent literary aspect. The argument is
that the purity of the art form is necessarily de-
filed by the presence of literature. That is, the
"pure form" of a painting is believed to be cor-
rupted by the presence of a recognizable "story"
element. If the painting is truly "abstract" you
can not, must not, }recognize anything it it save
form that is "pure," "significant," or "abstract."
In other words, the belief is that painting is
painting, the dance is the dance, and literature is
There is truth in such a belief, but not all of
the truth. Otherwise, how are we to account for
Maumier, Hogarth, El Greco, Goya and others
among the painters, or for Bizet, Wagner, Strav-
insky, Schoenberg among the composers. Litera-
ture and a good deal else are very much part
of their painting and music.
Is it really possible to say with a straight face
that El Greco was not a "pure" painter because
of the recognizable religio-mystical literature (and
Aothr less ure things) in his nainting, or to ex-
