est ornithologists, concluded a long period of serv-,
ice to the University Friday when he was re-
tired from the faculty by the Board of Regents.
Dr., Wood will continue such work as he desires in
an unofficial capacity, however.
The retirement of Dr. Wood and the consequent
loss of his services in a direct way will be keenly
felt by theUniversity. His retirement conoludes
° al'i active =life:in which he has been prominently
identified with ornithology societies and two great
educational institutions. Treatises on scientific
topics written by Dr. Wood have appeared in vir-
tually every important biological journal.
We thank Dr. Wood for- the services he has
rendered the University.

Screen Reflectio
Four stars. means extraordinary; three star. very -
good; two stars good; Pnestar just another pc14tre;
ciio stare keep away frorin it.,
Twenty-two (count 'emi) twenty-two dazzling
stage performers-and Joe E. Brown on the. screen
are - offered- by the management of the Mich-
igan this wee.k.
Of the former, the mos; that can be said is that
there's a swell tap-dance team .on the list. The
orchestra is good but Ann Arbor audiences "are
accustomed to much better. In any event,- however,
vaudevilles are so -few and far- apart these days
that it is well worth your while to attend this
~As fo- Joe E. Brown andl the baseball feature
in which he. appears, -it must be remembered that
for 18 years Joe played the game himself, topping
off his professional baseball career with a season
on the bench with the Yanks, in 1926.
Furthermore, the picture is, above all else, au-
thenstic, since 35 big league ball players form
part of the cast in this comedy of the diamond.
And most of these professional ball players are,
by the way, actual friends .of the star comedian,
who were called in by him personally to -give the
picture that professional, touch which is such an
aid in making it successful.
The picture is screamingly funny-if you like
Joe E. Brown's mouth-andI most theatre-goers
do. The story is one of the best sheer. comedies'
ever written and it was done, incidentally, 'by .
past-masters of the art of humorous writing, Ring
Lardner and George M. Cohan. Our .Adjectives, if
we used any here, would 'be pretty well -up in the
realm of superlatives-it IS a grand -picture.

charity of the University! Fortunately the Uni-
versity does not admit such individuals.
Next let us consider the athletic fee. Ostensibly
the fee is for admission to athletic events. Ac-
tually any student can get his money's worth from
this fee, even if he does not go to a single game
as a spectator, by makii)g use of his university's
unparalleled facilities for individual physical de-
. Then the Union comes in for its share! Mr
Brown once more assumes that the University is a
place where people go merely to study. He himself
has not even found- out that 1) his membership
card entitles him to an 18 per cent discount on
almost all -Union charges and (2) after paying
four years' full tuition he is entitled to a refund
when he pays any succeeding year's or summer's
tuition. Mr. Brown knows so little of Union ac-
tivities and opportunities that he didn't know
enough to collect his refund-by his own admis-
To reply to Mr. Brown's idiotic and naive state-
ments that the student's $15 goes to pay a pretty
nurse at the Health Service, or that the $15 for
the Union goes to pay "somebody" there to keep
him off the welfare would be futile.
One thing that -must be emphasized in all seri-
ousness, so .that it is essential if we are to have
advantages that come with the Health Service,
the Union, and the athletic plant, every student
must contribute his share. Otherwise (1) the bur-
den is too great on those who -are public-spirited
enough to contribute to the common welfare and
(2) the University would have no way of count-
ing on definite support for activities it deems to
be. of suffioient importance to maintain.
- And may 1 point out that the $65.50 that goes
toward the cost of instruction represents only a
small- fraction of the actual cost per student. A
student at -Michigan gets an enormous bargain
even if he considers tha-t he does not get a cent's
worth out of the Health Service, etc., fees.
I -do not mean that there are -no legitimate crit-
icisms that might be made. I do not see, for
example, why the University Health Service,
maintained by all the students, should continue to
treat habitual drunkards whose illness proceeds
solely -from chronic alcoholism. But taken by and
large the work of the Health Service is a marvel
of efficiency. The Union renders a thousand serv-
ices to those who go over and find out what is
-available. Of course Mr. Brown probably belongs
to none of the organizations that meet in the
Union; he never spent any delightful hours in the
Union library, or writing letters on the free sta-
tionery it furnishes; he- never was in Ann Arbor
at- some odd hour of early morning or late evening
with :no place to go except the Union; he came
solely to study and to-hear professors lecture. I'm
sorry for him; because many of the professors are
poor lecturers, and .he could probably have ob-
tained actual book-learning at home by ordering
someigood books for the money he paid here year
after year (to the Health Service, to the Union,
and to the maintenance of the athletic program
of the University!) and studying at home. More-
over many of our cities have well-equipped free
public, libraries. The patrons of these libraries
are not expected to contribute anything more to
each other's social and health advantages than
to refrain from spitting on the floor-and, per-
haps, to refrain from sticking their gum on the
undersides of the tables!

Men's Summer Fashions
Favor White Linen Suits
With the return of warmer weath-
er white linen suits take an impor-
tant place in men's clothing. Single-
breasted suits with half belts can
be worn as a complete outfit or com-
bined with gray flannel slacks for
sports wear. A new lightweight suit
is also featured. It is called the
"tropical worsted" and comes in tan
and gray of different patterns. The
coats may also be worn with gray
The new washable ties of linen,

madras and cotton are not only cor-
rect but practical. They have a

What's Wrong
With Finals? .
C ONSIDERABLE resentment is cur-
rently heard with regard to the
lack of a free period for review and study between
the termination of class work and the beginning
of examinations. - : .
There is excellent reason to agree with this crit-
Every aspect of a. student's formal connection
with the University- is justifiabie- only as it °con-'
tributes to his education. . Class and lecture 'at-
tendance, laboratory work, and assignient prepa-
ration, certainly,-are fa;ctors leading to this goal,
and examinations can only be regarded- as eXist-
ing for the same purpose.
The peculiar function of the examination, as we
see it, is the encouragement- of review. The .value
of any course is rnateraJlly..increased if the knowl-
edge that has been acquired in small doses from]
day to day is correlated' at the end of the semester
and considered as a whole. -To see many- phases
of a subject fit together and assume unity, during
the process of review, is frequently the most pleas-
utable part of its study. The period of retention,
too, is much longer when a course has been con-
templated in its entirety, *
All of this is pretty generally agreed to.
The most satisfactory method for the stimula-
tion of this review, and the one used -in-, -most
educational institutions, is examination. Holding
students responsible for -what they are - supposed -
to have learned has proved itself as efficient a
way as any to assure the. desired review.
Now obviously, if a student must, attend classes.
Friday and write an examination-many .of us,
according to the present schedule, will be asked to
write two examinations--on Saturday, there can
be no real review. A frantic cramming. of the worst
sort is all that .can be- possible, a cramming. that
leaves the average student with his nerves on edge,
a -discouraging feeling= that his knowledge of the
course is only superficial, and a strong conviction
tlat he is being treated unfairly.. In this condi-
tion he can do neither himself norhis instructor
justice, with the result that the work both have
done is distorted to a degree that. is the more de-
plorable in that the whole business could so eas-
ily be avoided.
A free period for review is already customary
at maby colleges-a irecent editorial in the stude'nt
newspaper of one of the very finest institutions
of the country -pleads, not for adoption, but for
expansion of a reading- period that is already a
week long.
The work Professor Rich has performed cannot
be too highly praised. The ingenious system he
has devised for the elimination of conflicts has
placed students and teachers alike under a very
real obligation to him and to his assistants.- It is
too bad that when so much has been accomplished

To the Editor:
Being neither a Jew nor a member of the Na-
tional Student League, I feel I may comment im-
partially on - two distressing incidents - that oc-
curred during the mass meeting of last Friday
afternoon. One was the speech of a Daily editor
who, invited to state his views in opposi-tion to
those of the regular speakers, contented himself;
with. a malicious reflection .on the .race and. re-
ligion of-some ;of these speakers. The -other inci-
dent was the interruption of the speakers by Coif
initiates who marched into the meeting with
clanging cowbell and -proceeded to Ado their best
to, break it up by sophomoric antics and feeble
witticisms. The annual. custom of speaking on.
the library steps is; I realize, a part of-the Coif
initiation: ceremony. But nothing in that. cere..-
mony provides that it be performed at a date
and hour to- interfere with another student ac-
tivitty. -
The members of Coif are supposed to be the
cream of the law school; it is presumed that they
reflect in - scholarship and character the-finest
ideals of that .school. Whatever may be said of
scholastic achievement, Coif's display last Friday
of ruthless inconsideration of the rights of -others
-is by no. means flattering to the department it{
represents. Coif unquestionably disgraced itself
and should be firmly rebuked by the law students
and faculty.- The --same treatment should, in all
fairness, be accorded the Hitlerite editor by the
Michigan Daily.

To the Editor: -.x';
- .I don't like the opening sentence of Mr. Brown's
lengthy diatribe on -tuition -that appeared recently
in The Daily: "Everyone seems to have lacked the
perspicacity" etc. Lest some people begin to think
that this letter is representative of intelligent
student opinion on the Michigan campus, it night
-be well to point out a few things.
A university is more than a place to acquire
certain information from books and professors.
Its is, of necessity, a social community. Every so-
ci0l community must take certain steps to protect
itself, and the prime protection necessary is that
of health. To this protection every member of the
campus community must-contribute. Whether he
personally has a cold or breaks a leg, is not the
point. The Health Service stands ready, at any
time, to render routine and emergency service. No
student may take the attitude that -he will take
a chance on his own health, because (1) such an
attitude is cangerous to the community. By seg-
regation and care of patients with contagious dis-
eases the-Health Service is continually protecting
all the students. (2) If one of these student who;

been a year, and :it has been a year well worth
waiting, since Broadway last came to Ann Arbor
and Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre was host to what
has become the universally anticipated crowning
glory of stage activities for all within range of its
For with Tom Powers and Edith Barrett head-
ing the list, a traditionally fine Robert Henderson
Dramatic Season company opened this year's rep-
ertory with Rose Franken's vital study of the
American family last night.
Not since "Arms and the Man" a year ago, also
on the Henderson season, has Mr. Powers been
seen in these parts, nor has Miss,-Barrett appeared
in Michigan since her presentation in the title role
of "Candida" at the Bonstelle Civic in Detroit last
Iwinter. So it is with the greatest of pleasure that
we greet them again to witness what is no doubt
the most intelligent and deeply understanding
play of -the American lower middle classes.
As Stella Hallam, frustrated, misunderstood,
maladjusted, striving sister-in-law to a family of
complacent, unintelligent mediocrity, Miss Barrett
created- a.character last night- that will seldom if
ever be equalled in the part. For Miss Barrett
played with a personal grace, an overwhelming
charm that must inevitably stand high in any
comparison by virtue of the tremendous emotion
of sympathy and pity it elicited from the audi-
Mr. Powers, as Victor Hallam, her family-
bound grown boy of a husband, displayed all the
sheer acting ability coupled with insight' into
character that has brought him to his place in the
American theatre today. The truly astonishing
merit of his adaptability to roles is very well
brought out in., the contrast between the part he
played last night and- his Captain Bluntschli in
"Arms and the Man."
The latter part is that of a sophisticated, self-
possessed, untroubled soldier of fortune. In it Mr.
Powers gleamed with the charm of his personality.
Last night the same actor was--not simulated-
the hulking, impulsive, almost-civilized young
middle class husband- that is Victor Hallam. No
two young men could differ more radically. Yet
each time one sees Mr. Powers one feels almost
against his will that as he appears on the stage,
so the actor must be in real life.
Among the rest of the relatives-brothers, sis-
ters-in-law, father, and mother-that make up
the cast are several well known here. Helen Ray
as Mrs."Hallam, Ainsworth Arnold as the father,
and Francis Compton as Paul Haliam have all

Won't some kind friend tell him
what to do before it's too late? What
he needs is a good pipe-and good to-
bacco. Of course, the right tobacco is di
necessary-but that's easy. A recent Si
investigation showed Edgeworth to av
be the favorite smoking tobacco at E
42 out of 54 leading colleges. w
And here's why: Edgeworth isn't si
just another smoking tobacco. It's a
an individual blend of fine old bur- hu
leys. And you'll know that difference
