New Members Of
The Board...
W ITH the appointment by President
Ruthven of two new members of
the Board in Control of Student Publications, a]
long-considered change in the set-up of that body
is finally effected. The proposal has been made
and discussed in the past, and it has seemed ob-
vious that desirale resuas would be obtained from
having alumni members on such a board-alumni
members, preferably, now in the field of profes-
sional journalism.
However well qualified members chosen from
the faculty may be to serve on such a body, it
has been deemed advisable to supplement such
a group with men who contact daily the problems
which arise in a publications plant. Faculty mem-
bers of the board have made an admirable record
in the past; of that there can be no question. Yet
it is certain that they will be the first to welcome
the newcomers into their directorate. Such a
change has been made, in fact, in accordance with
recommendations which originated within the
Both new members of the Board are rot only
journalists who are acquainted with the problems
which the Board must face-they are journalists
of note.
Lee A White, a ,former managing editor of The
Daily, was also the founder and first managing
editor of Gargoyle. Today he is a member of the
executive editorial staff of The Detroit News and
enjoys the reputation of being one of the leading
newspapermen in the state.

Stuart Perry, nationally famous as the owner
and publisher of one of America's leading smaller
newspapers, is a member of the board of directors
of the Associated Press, largest news-gathering
organization in the world.
Both men bring to the Board in Control of Stu-
dent Publications knowledge and experience which
should be invaluable to that body in making the
decisions relative to the three student publica-
More important, however, than the mechanical
knowledge which these men will be able to im-
part is the journalist's viewpoint which they both
possess. There has long been a divergence of opin-
ion among members of the faculty, as well as
among the students, with regard to how much
influence the board should have upon editorial
policies of the student publications. Students who
have been employed upon these publications have
always prided themselves upon the fact that Th
Daily, Gargoyle, and Michiganensian have been
free from outright censorship. Yet there are thos

seems optimistic.
Support The
World's Fair .**

ROTESTS of Chicago school teach-
' ers against non-payment of sal-
aries have been justified for the most part, but
the ultimate in stupidity of method was reached
recently when eight Columbia professors, who are
unconnected with the city of Chicago and appa-
rently have entirely disinterested motives, wrote
advocating a boycott of the World's Fair.
This gigantic project was a fearful gamble to
begin with, it is true. The International Exposi-
tion of 1893, held in the same city, was a financial
flop, and resulted in a good deal of scrimping to
make ends meet. It seems likely that the exposi-
tion of this year, coming as it does at a time
when the world is particularly loth to spend its
money, will equal if not outdo the monetary de-
bacle witnessed in 1893.
But there is always the chance that the cur-
rent fair will succeed. The chance was a long one
at the outset, and never should have been ac-
cepted; but most of the money necessary to put
the fair across has now been spent, and every
effort must now be extended to make the scheme
a success.
In the face of this necessity, it seems singularly
stupid to propose a boycott of a project upon
which so much money has already been spent,
and which, if it succeeds, will mean liquidation
of much of the city debt. It is a logical argument
that the finances for the fair have been diverted
from funds which should have gone to pay teach-
ers' salaries; but at this time that argument is
misplaced and may do much damage.
Educational Censorship
'In Illinois.*
THE STATE SENATE of Illinois has
yielded to the present hysteria
against anything termed "red," or "pink." Acting
under stimulus from the Chicago Tribune, the
senators have passed a law which would penalize
any educational institution "which teaches or per-
mits the teaching of seditious matter or permits
the advocation of the overthrow of the represen-
tative form of government . . . by force, violence,
or other unlawful means, or encourages or permits
the encouragement of opposition by force to the
authority or to the execution of any law of the
state or the United States government."
To the careful reader, the language of the bill
will show that the senators are ignorant of the
law, effective in Illinois, which makes it a crim-
inal act to advocate the overthrow of the exist-
ing government by force.
But on the other hand, there is no mistaking
the intention of the senators in the word "sedi-
tious." To quote the Chicago Tribune ,"Two bills
to exclude universities and colleges with pink
tendencies from the benefit of state funds ."f
Any instructor who puts any attack on the form
of the state government (and everyone knows
that state governments merit attack) is teaching
seditious Mhatter, and is liable to cause his school
to lose its .tax exemption privileges and its state
funds, if any.
America has gone crazy in its attempt to resist
any criticism against itself. People refuse to study
the beliefs of anyone who can be termed by the
most extreme stretch of the imagination a "red,"
or a socialist, or a communist.
These words have taken on a sort of magic,
and they will evoke terror from the average Amer-
ican, who would be horrified if he were told that
there has been a steady trend toward a socializa-
tion of all laws in this country. Minimum-wage
laws, child-labor laws, and workmen's compensa-
tion laws are only a few of the examples which
could be cited,
The other legal angle to the question is that
of the right of free speech as guaranteed in the
Illinois Constitution, but it is problematical
whether this law will be considered invalid since
it does not call for a criminal prosecution of the
man who speaks his mind.
But in a broader sense, the right of free speech
is being attacked, the right of self-examination is
being attacked, and the right of free education is
being attacked.
If the so-called "seditious" doctrines of social-
ism are being taught in the schools of Illinois, it is
an admission of weakness for the legislators to try
to stop those teachings. How much better it would

The "theme and variation" form is the essence
of art. One might also say of life itself, for unity
and a little variety are the two components of
human existence. And as the "theme" of a build-
ing is the brick, stone, or whatever else it may be
made of-so is the "theme" of the musical com-
position the building material of the work of art.
A large type of this form is the Passacaglia, of
which the great Bach C minor is an outstanding
example-so magnificently complete, in fact, that
later composers have avoided working in this
manner thinking that everything has been said on
this subject. But with the recent neo-classical
trend in all our artsitic movements, the older
forms of expression are being utilized and ex-
panded through the extended modern musical me-
dium. Typical of a contemporary working in this
old-new style is the Sowerby Passacaglia from his
Symphony in G for Organ. Sowerby, a young
American, has been the first to approach the
greatness of Bach or Brahms in this form, and in
this finale shows an enormous ingenuity and
imagination in composition, matched only by the
spiritual values maintained throughout the work.
The theme, simple and classic, upon which Sow-
erby has built a series of 33 variations, has been
treated with infinite modifications of manner and
effect leading from one to the other without ef-
fort, and harmonized quite in the "modern" me-
dium, but always keeping the unity of form intact
by the ever persistent "theme."

fessors, $12.50; instructors, $25. The sum of
$193.75 was appropriated to pay the salaries of the
President and processors and $200 to cover the

Souls' Church didn't do so well.
A Scout executive, who knew that the girls

police when they failed to arrive, and a radio
lookout was sent for them. But when police
had scarcely started the search the girls re-

be for them to let the teachers teach their doc-
trines; students will be sufficiently immune to the
teachings of socialism by the other capitalistic
influences in this country.
The very danger of socialism is that it will
break out in force, and that danger is removed
by educating the youth of the land to know, re-
spect, and turn its back on sudden socialism, em-,
bracing a gradual change, until we defeat the
forces of violent revolution and look forward to a
gradual evolution.
We can be thankful that the instructors at
Michigan have not been placed at the disadvan-
tage of teaching only those doctrines which are
