ing about the lousy parts.
At the risk of being suspected of being Mr.
Crandall's fraternity brother, or a distant mem-
ber of Mr. Nestle's family, or of owing Mr. Pozz
money-at the risk, we say, of any such suspicions,
we wish to come out flatly and admit that those
gentlemen turned in three very fine performances.
Mr. Crandall especially, in the best and most dif-
ficult role, was at all times expert, at all times
right, at all times emotionally moving.
A good word should also be said for Messrs.
Maddin and Williams. But not too good a word,
for Mr. Williams' funniness occasionally gave
forth a porcine or, and Mr. Maddin as an English
schoolboy was hard to like at first. Maybe that's
just the English schoolboy of it-they're a bad
lot on the stage, always full of exuberance and
Our only serious objection is''an otherwise ex-
citing performance was continually interrupted by
bad property work-cups without tea in them,
plates without food, and machine gun effects that
sounded suspiciously like someone stropping a
razor. It was especially unfortunate that the Ger-
nan bombardment should have its genesis in the
kitchen at the right of the dugout. The German
who was pounding on the wash tub was the worst.
Then there were the accents--approximately
six varieties of Cultured English, three varieties
of Cockney, and two of Cook Tour German. We
object indignantly to having two Cockney char-
acters stand before us and sling the word "fat"
around as both "faaat" and "faht." But still and
all, it was a pretty ekciting show.
On behalf of Play Production we want to thank
the R. O. T. C. for the. uniforms and the City of
Ann Arbor for the misty quality in that bottle of

Hay fever is the name given to an acute con-
gestion of the mucous membranes of the eyes,
mouth and respiratory organs. The symptoms are
chiefly sneezing, profuse watery discharge from
the nose, itching and burning sensation of the
nose and the eyes, watering of the eyes, itching of
the roof of the mouth, stuffiness due to swelling
of the nasal mucous membranes and a feeling of
fullness of the head. The skin may occasionally
be affected. These symptoms vary greatly in dif-
ferent people, with regard to the time and mode
of onset, the intensity of the various local mani-
festations, as well as their general severity and
The term "hay fever" is a misnomer. The
malady is neither due to hay nor characterized
by any definite rise in temperature. The name
was given more than a century ago when hay
was regarded by many as the cause, and when
the term fever was loosely applied to many in-
dispositions. This term of hay fever is now uni-
versally in use to designate the train of symptoms
induced in specifically sensitive individuals
through the adequate contact with specific pol-
lens. True hay fever is always seasonal and is,
always caused by pollen, the latter being the ex-
citing cause.
There are three factors essential to the develop-
ment of hay fever:
A. The presence in the blood serum of the sub-
ject of a specific reacting body to which Dr. Ar-
tnur C. Coca has given the name "reagin."
B. The existence in the same person of a sen-
sitizing organ or organs. The particular tissue
showing sensitiveness is called the tissue factor.
The organ to which this tissue belongs is called
the shock organ. The various combinations of
clinical symptoms depend on the degree of sensi-
tivity of the tissue and the particular set of or-
gans involved.
C. Pollen, the exciting cause of the malady is
the third factor in the mechanism of hay fever.
Which plants cause fever? Dr. August A. Thom-
men has formulated the following five postulates
which may be predicated to pollen in relation to
its causation of hay fever (sporadic hay fever is
excluded) :
. The pollen must contain an excitant of hay
2. The pollen must be wind born as regards its
mode of pollination.
3. The pollen must be produced in sufficiently
large quantities.
4. The pollen must be sufficiently buoyant to be
carried considerable distances.
5. The plant producing the pollen must be wide-
ly and abundantly distributed.
The various species of plants known to cause
hay fever may be divided for convenience into
three main groups:
(1) trees, (2) grasses, (3) weeds. Consequently
we have in the United States three distinct hay
fever seasons:
Very early type Spring-Caused by pollens of
trees. Duration: Early April to Early June.
Early Type: Late Spring and early Summer:
Caused chiefly by pollens of grasses. Duration:
Mid-May to end of July.
Late type: Late summer and early fall: caused
by pollens of weeds. Duration: Mid-August to
early October or until a good, killing frost.
The trees whose pollens meet the requirements
of the five postulates formulated by Dr. Thorm-
men may be divided into the following groups:
Group 1. The catkin-bearing trees: oak, birch,
poplar, hickory, walnut, beech, alder and hazel.
Group 2. Trees producing unisexual flowers (not
in catkins): maple, ash, hackberry, sycamore, mul-
Group 3. Trees producing perfect flowers: Elm
and mesquite.

In the light of the present day appropriation
cut all unnecessary expenditures by the university
should be stopped. By unnecessary expenditures
I mean such support of departments of the uni-
versity which are not directly productive toward
higher learning. Byi the phraseology "higher
learning," I refer to that meaning of the word as
used in the Editoriala of the Michigan Daily for
Thurdsay, April 20, 1933.
Sirice, quoting the afore mentioned editorial-
"The business of this university, in short, is the
acquisition as well as the dissemination of infor-
mation;" and expenditures not pertinent to that
policy are deemed unnecessary- the least neces-
sary department in the university, namely, that!
department whose duty it is to enforce the Auto-
mobile Regulations, should be abolished. Realiz-
ing that I am dealing with logical, intelligent
people I shall state the case as I see it and at-
tempt to provide a more suitable alternative.
The case is this:

Weaklings And
Naughty Boys.

A in East Lansing, the students face
very much the same situation that we students
face here in regard to the drinking of beer. On
Wednesday, the city fathers of East Lansing camet
to the conclusion that beer should not be sold in
their community.
"We don't want the impression to go out that
we consider the State College boys a lot of weak-
lings," one of the councilmen of the city declared.E
"We don't. We have a local situation to face. The
town is built right around the campus. Whether
bee' drinking is right or wrong, we don't think
it would be advisable to have beer available so
the boys could stop in and drink between classes.
I don't think any fair-minded person would dis-
In brief, the gentleman says, "college boys aren't'
weaklings but if there is a chance for them to get
beer they will drnk it between classes. This would
be very bad indeed. It would be a local situation."
But the councilman should realize that no col-
lege man except a weakling would do this. College
"boys," at least the great majority of them, have
come to school to get an education. If they drink
instead of going to classes they are not getting
this education. Their purpose is thwarted. They
are weaklings, nothing more.
Because college "boys" drink over a week-end
when they have little work to do is no indication
that they are going to drink between classes if
beer is available. Right now, the average college
man has liquor available at any time of the day
or night. Yet, not one out of a thousand would
think of drinking between classes.
Although we are not students of psychology, it
is our honest belief that one reason that there was
so much drinking among younger people, par-
ticularly college "boys" if you wish, during the
days of absolute prohibition, was because it was
naughty to drink. The effect of a beer ban in
East Lansing will have a similar result; the effect
of a beer ban here east of Division Street will
have a similar result. We prophesy it.

There is a man in charge of the department,
his secretary, the minions of the department com-
monly called the cops and their cars all requiring
no small amount of the University appropriations
to be kept functioning. They most certainly do
not carry on for the mere fun of the game or their
health, nor do the two cars run without gas,
oil, tires and repairs.
The above statement may be grossly exagger-
ated or grossly slighted-in truth I may be very
poorly informed in either direction but in either
case the fact remains ,this department does not
push toward "higher learning."

Do not assume that I believe everyone is capable
of managing an automobile-there are some peo-
ple who, no matter how long they drive, will
never be acknowledged capable of driving. There
are already laws functioning in the state for the
control of such individuals. There are already
people employed to see that these laws are en-
forced. Why should the taxpayer pay double for
something already provided? He should not!
This situation can be handled at half the pres-
ent cost by the State police as they handle non-
student citizens who infringe upon the laws with
a minimum of assistance from the university.
The solution is this':
The University should require all students using
cars to register them with the University and to
carry insurance for them. No insurance, no car
permit. This ruling would function in interest
of both the student and the public. Those stu-
dents who could not finance insurance surely
could not finance a car; those who could finance
a car would be protecting themselves as well as
the public. Anyone found violating the insurance
rule would be expelled.
The students would be allowed cars with this
one proviso under the ruling that if at any time
a student should have an accident for which he is
proved legally responsible in court, exceeding a
certain set monetary limit, he would lose his
driving permit. This proviso would also be a
further guarantee that the public would be pro-
tected-the- undesirables would soon weed them-
selves out of the flower bed of driving.
This change in attitude toward the Automo-
bile Ban question which has long been a sore
in the side of the student body will also help
the town trade to no small degree and consequent-

"At Both Ends Of The Campus"

If it is considered naughty for students to drink
beer, and the city councils of both Ann Arbor and
East Lansing seem to think that 'it is, there will
be a big parade of students from East Lansing to
Lansing and from east of Division to west of
Division when the clocks of the two college cam-
puses chime the closing hour of classes. We
prophesy that, too.
