E VERY barber shop in town, with,
the exception of that in the Union,
has recognized the demands of the student body
and brought the price of its hair cuts down to 35
The Union, however, the student club, the non-
profit organization, has reduced prices to only 45
cents. Something is radically wrong. What is it?
The following statements have been made as
justification for their high union barber shop
collegian to be "good" for freshmen and pledges,
to instill into them a respect for their fraternity
and its "ideals," to make them into worthy repre-
sentatives of the group.
Could any supposition be more erroneous?
Normal people would expect the reaction to
such treatment to be the exact opposite. It can
scarcely be called "good for them," since they area
subjected to conditions that may be distinctly
injurious to their health. It is a well-known fact
that college life, without such treatment, is some-
times considered to be none too beneficial.
Secondly, we cannot imagine respect for any
group or individual being fostered in us by insult
and physical discomfort. As well say that martyrs
respected their tormenters in the early days of
Rome. And what ideals that are worth being re-
tained can one expect to discover from such
Students in the old days responded in the de-
sired way because they had been brought up to
believe such ordeals to be necessary parts of their
education, but those days are gone forever . .
If they are not, then there has been no ad-
vance in conditions during the intervening years.
What is needed now is a movement on the cam-
pus to aolish entirely this out-worn affair in
favor of a system that will mean more to the
neophytes and will not subject them to the bar-
barities they are put through at present. Why
cannot Michigan be a leader in this movement
that is gaining more impetus daily? It would be
an honor and accomplishment that would not be

THE VALUE OF AN EDUCATION
We often hear the question asked, "What's
the use of an education anyway? Can you get
a better job as a result of it? Isn't it true that
college graduates are a drug on the market, and
that it is often a handicap rather than an advan-
tage to be one when seeking a position?"
This point of view which is purely commercial
is to be regretted as it ignores all the benefits of
a college education which cannot be reckoned in
terms of money. However, even taking this view-j
point, it is easily proved that the value of an
education is considerable.
Dean E. W. Lord of the College of Business Ad-
ministration, Boston University gives the follow-
"The average elementary school trained boy
goes to work at about 14 years of age. At thirty
he reaches his maximum income of about $1,200
a year. Between the ages of fourteen and sixty
he earns about $45,000. No more than $2,000 is
earned during the four years that would have
given him a high school education.
"The High-School graduate goes to work at
eighteen, passes the average untrained man with-
in seven years, rises steadily to his own maximum
of $2,200 at forty, and continues at that level for
the remainder of his active life. His total earnings
from eighteen to sixty are about $78,000. The
$33,000 difference between his lifetime earnings
a ndthose of the untrained man, represent the
cash value of a high-school course.
"The college graduate begins work at twenty-
two, and at twenty-eight is earning as much as
the high-school graduate at forty. His total earn-
ings from twenty-two to sixty amount to $150,000
or $72,000 more than those of the high-school
graduate, a measure of the cash value of a college
"The conclusions which may be drawn from
these facts that every hour spent in high school
is worth at least $5.0.0 in after life, and every hour
spent in college earns at least $10.00."
This should prove conclusively to all doubters

1. That the Union barbers are the only ones in
town that are working on a salary,
2. That the Union has the best barbers in town.
3. That, with a coupon book, a student really
gets his hair cut for 36 cents.
4. That the Union shop kept town prices from
going up to 75 cents in good times.
5. That the Union doesn't want to take any
part in a price war.
We will answer these statenents in' order.
(1) If the fact that Union barbers are on a
salary is responsible for the 45 cent haircut rate,
then we suggest that the solution is to take the
barbers off a salary basis and put them on com-
(2) The Union may have the best barbers in
town but one would doubt it since at least one
former barber of the Union is now working in
another shop in town and since several of the
Union barbers are students in the University and
thus cannot be very experienced.
(3) Even with a coupon book, the price of a
hair cut at the Union is 37 cents. But a student
buys a coupon book with an understanding that
he is going to get a discount. Obviously, the pur-
pose of the books is to stimulate the volume of
trade at the Union. To then quote prices on the
basis of the coupon books is obviously unfair be-
cause it is twice taking advantage of the dis-
(4) If the Union kept prices from going to 75
cents during good times, that is certainly laudable,
but it is scarcely an excuse for the Union now
keeping its price at 45 cents.
(5) The Union should certainly not take part in
any sort of a price war. But local shops have
established their rates at 35 cents. There doesn't
seem to be any possibility of a price war. The
Union might at least come down to the rate that
every other shop in town has adopted.

.,FORCEFUL DRAMA OF DAYS
WHEN SILVER WAS KING
Yates Martin.......Edward G. Robinson
Lily Owens.............. Bebe Daniels
Sarah Martin .........Aline MacMahon
Warner Brothers' picturization of the stirring
rise and lightning-quick downfall of Yates Mar-
tin, rugged, hail-fellow-well-met Westerner who
staked everything on the silver standard ,is a nov-
elty in the movie line that you will not want to
miss. Martin's scaling of fabulous heights (based
on that of historic Haw Tabor) in the financialI
world, his successive jumps upward from Denver
miner to mayor, to lieutenant-governor of Col-
orado, to United States Senator, and then his
collapse when President Cleveland swerves to the
gold standard, is episodic but strong fare.
Martin loved two women, and they represented
two phases in his life-one the early days, when
faithful, philosophic Sarah watched with fearful
eyes her Midas of the West; the other the daysI
of gilded opulence which saw him fling money
right and left, import Honduras mahogany and
Italian marble to make Denver's opera house the
finest in the world, give a post-office site to the
government, and buy a 30-day senatorship. Aline
MacMahon is dull, wistful Sarah; Bebe Daniels
is the dazzling Lily. Both are characteristically
finished in their performances.
"Silver Dollar" has a flaw in its disjointedness.
It attempts to show a life history rather than a
shorter period which could be molded into a fin-
ished plot, It becomes tedious in spots, but not
enough to vitally detract from its interest. Four-
star praise has been showered on "Silver Dollar"
from many quarters.
