We add our farewell to Major Edwards to the

mighty good man to fill his place here.

FRIDAY, JUNE 2, 1933
R ESENTMENT will flare at the dis-
ciplinary action that has been
taken following Swingout disorderliness. There
are many who cannot understand why outgoing
seniors anid admiring underclassmen have noI
right to imperil the University on this annual oc-
The Daily suspects the resentment will be more
widespread than deep. Surely no one can remem-
ber- with pride this year's festivities, tending as1
they did to discredit the character of the entire1
To greet a seriously prepared address with in-
solent disinclination to listen is hardly desirable.
Yet it describes the action of not a few of theI
graduating class two weeks ago Tuesday.l
The University is a public institution. As such1
it depends for support to a large degree on its rep-:
utation with the people of the State. Accounts,
newspaper and otherwise, being invariably exag-
gerated, the school income is easily jeopardized.
Some seniors may feel they have no further need
for Michigan; the rest of us have a very real
need, which shall not end in June.'
We have little sympathy with those who meddle
with private recreation, Individuals know what
they like to do, and should be allowed to do it,
as long as they and not others pay the piper. It
is only when one person's good time interferes
with another's that it is to be censured.
All in all the disciplinary action that has been
taken is to be applauded. It is hard to see stu-
dents suspended for a little over-exuberance at a
school affair, but after all, you have to think of
Major Edwards . .
M AJ. BASIL D. EDWARDS, com-
mandant of the University Reserve
Officers Training Corps who will retire from duty
here, after the close of the present semester, has
had innumerable honors bestowed upon him by
those who have watched the progress of the
battalion under his guidance, and by those who
have felt his willing aid in anything that might be
requested of him.
He was the recipient of a commendation by the
Michigan House of Representatives, passed unani-
mously, which cited his outstanding ability and
well-earned success. He was feted by Scabbard
and Blade, composed of the students who have
worked with him, some of them for four years.
He has been the subject of numerous editorials
pointing out that he has raised the corps from a
mediocre department with a small number of stu-
dents enrolled to its present record of efficiency
and the highest enrollment in its history. Each
year the unit has been rated "excellent" by the
War Department inspectors.
New Deal In
W ITH the approval yesterday by
President Ruthven of the new Stu-
dent Council plan, a year of conflict and many
years of poor student government came to an
end, and a new note of hope for the cause of
student government was sounded.
The plan is a good one because it makes cer-
tain that only men and women of high calibre
and proven ability to lead will be seated on the
Council. By ex-officio selection the new plan elim-
inates self-seeking politicians from the high places
in student government and replaces them with
persons who have achieved the positions they hold
through several years of hard work.
The addition of women members to the Council
in itself augurs well for its success. The Council
is a Student Council, and will be more truly rep-
resentative by virtue of the addition of co-ed
The new Council will have legislative and judi-
cial functions. It will make general rules with
regard to student behavior and will investigate
cases of breach of conduct, making recommenda-
tions for disciplinary action through the dean to
the proper authorities. Specifically these powers
are not unlike those held formerly, but in fact
they should prove much greater. For the quality
of the new leadership will give unprecedented
weight to its opinions and recommendations.
The campus expects much of its new Council.
We have waited a long time for a New Deal, and
hope that at last it has come.
Four stars means extraordinary; three stars very
good; two stars good; one star just another picture;
no stars keep away from it.
AT THE MICHIGAN
* *LIFE AND DEATH ON
THE GREAT ATLANTIC
"Grand Hotel," which you will remember as the
show depicting action within the strict confines
of a great hotel, seems to have been the fore-
runner of a series of similar presentations. Sim-
ilar, that is, insofar as a limited background is
provided for the course of events. In the case of
"Luxury Liner" it is a huge, modern trans-At-
lantic steamer which serves as the stage. Life,
death, love, greed, hate-all the emotions and all
possible occurrences have a place in "Luxury
The story concerns itself especially with the fate
of a doctor who has boarded the vessel only to fol-
low his wife and the man with whom she is
running away. By last minute arrangements he
becomes the ship's doctor and is soon occupied
with births, deaths, illnesses, and operations, as-
sisted by an extremely attractive but morose
As matters proceed, the runaway wife shoots
the erstwhile paramour and jumps overboard. The
doztor then realizes how wonderful the nurse
happens to be and learns from her own lips of
the secret sorrow of the past which has been
haunting her for five years. And, much as we
hate to admit it, we find another movie with a
more or less happy ending.
The minor plots which carry through in the best
Shakespearian fashion add a lot to the picture
and it goes reasonably far in its attempt to por-
tray a cross-section of life, aboard a steamer or
elsewhere. Furthermore, George Brent, who plays
the doctor, is talented enough to give the film
a finished air. The picture, however, falls short
of being great and resolves itself into merely an
entertaining production.-E. J. P.

To The Editor:
M. Levi is getting pretty excited over the al-
leged atrocities against the Jews in Germany. Be-
ware of false propaganda, M. Levi, for it is a
powerful potion; Arthur Ponsonby in his "False-
hoods in Wartime" shows how perfect propa-
ganda is developed and how the masses are
aroused against the acts of an individual or na-
Hitler has a definite duty to perform for his
country and he is determined that he shall ac-
complish it. The reason that Hitler was elected to
head the German government is because of his
promises to the German people to free Germany
of the war guilt, to bring her equality with other
nations, and to fight Communism and Bolshevism.
Conditions have necessitated his seizing con-
trol of affairs by force in order to combat the
spread of Bolshevism which would be a horrible
thing for Europe. Wouldn't Europe be an ideal
continent if all the countries had Soviet govern-
ments like Russia! Hitler is determined to checkj
this Bolshevism before it runs rampant through
Europe. Mr. Levi advocates removing Hitler from
power because he dares stifle Bolshevism with
stern measures. The world should be glad that a
man with enough force and vigor is at the helm
of Germany so that Bolshevism will meet a "stone
Hitler's fight against Communism and Bolshe-
we cannot discriminate whether a Bolshevist is a
German or a Jew."
As to the discharging of Jews from the higher
public positions; this is merely an attempt to re-
achieve German leadership for the country. This
is a rather unfortunate move, for many of the
foremost men in their professions are Jews. This
move, however, was probably originated to impede
the Jews, who, because of their superior aggres-
siveness, have jumped into various professions.
Furthermore Hitler is Germany's man of the
hour because he dares demand that the stigma
of the war guilt question be removed from Ger-
many and that she be given equality instead. The
"war guilt myth" has already been exploded by
countless historians of all countries including the
Americans, Barnes, Fay, and Bausman. If the
Versailles treaty were discarded, and it should be
for it was based on the soi guilt of Germany,
conditions in Europe would immediately change
for the better.
With equality and financial assistance, Ger-
many would be able to turn her efforts toward
useful industry. Then, I believe, the communistic
tendency of the masses would be effectively de-
feated and the stern measures dropped by the
wayside. Then Germany will be in harmony with
the world for the Germans are normally a quiet
and industrious people.

"DESIGN FOR LIVING
AT LYDIA MENDELSSOHN
By GEORGE SPELVIN
"Design for Living," current at Lydia Mendel-
ssohn as the latest offering on Robert Hender-
son's Dramatic Season, is one of those thoroughly
smart and poignantly bright plays of which the
pure enthusiastic vitality has the power to carry
off virtually any philosophy of life. Noel Coward,
in this remarkable observation on "love among
the artists," has an entirely unconventional and
somewhat shocking thesis to present. His argu-
ments are almost convincing.
There is an artist, a painter, and a woman.
They are all delightfully clever, exultingly dash-
ing, and thoroughly intelligent. They are com-
pletely nice people; one cannot help liking them.
They do everything in such a satisfyingly right
manner. They are so ingratiatingly youthful. And
so when one realizes that they are all in love
with each other, it is very difficult to think any-
thing unkind about it. As a matter of fact their
relationship is admittedly not precisely love; it is
"something a little lower, something a little
higher, something terribly strong." If the "Design
for Living" presented by Mr. Coward is to be
taken as a serious judgment, it is to be doubted
that this is a wise play. We will not go so far as
to.say that it is not a nice play, and we will cer-
tainly not claim that it is risque. It is merely not
From the standpoint of theatre entertainment,
"Design for Living" is doubtless one of the best
in years. It is completely packed with genuine
laughs and entirely insane situations. The people
it portrays are vigorously alive, unendingly amus-
ing. For much of the success of this production
of "Design," credit is due to Geoffrey Kerr, whose
tremendous comic ability accounted for fully a
third of the uproarious response from the audi-
ence. As Leo, the playwright, his work was im-
bued with the solidity and complete conviction
of correctness of which only an actor of rare tal-
ents is capable.
There is a quality about Mr. Kerr as an actor
which we have previously noted-a reserve, an
apparent disregard for the audience or for his
own gestures and actions or for anything else
that would detract from the complete surrender of
his personality to that of the part. We say he
apparently disregards his self, which, of course, is
patently untrue. For Mr. Kerr's gestures, his car-
riage, his facial expression, as he, with his actor's
sense, uses them, are the very elements which
mark the distinction between his work and that of
a merely good actor. And again we say the es-
sence is restraint, reserve.
Tom Powers, as Otto, the painter, played well
and played intelligently, but he did not, last night,
play with the brilliance and charm that marked
the work of Mr. Kerr. Mr. Powers carries with
him, from one part to another, certain personal
characteristics of carriage and gesture which de-
tract somewhat from his style.
As Gilda, the woman, Violet Heming was deli-
cious. Her work, always fine, shone particularly
in a singularly auspicious part. Gilda gave her in-
finitely more opportunity to show her versatility,
than have her parts in "There's Always Juliet,"
"Arms and the Man," "Springtime for Henry," or
anything else she has ever done here.
As regards the supporting cast, Bertha Froh-
man was ludicrous as the slovenly servant. Francis
Compton's work as Ernest, the moral element of
the play, was also consistent and satisfying. Mr.
Compton's extraordinary versatility has previously
been expounded in this department. Last night
he was at his best.
FROM STARK YOUNG
Yesterday Robert Henderson, with even more
than his accustomed ebullience, showed us the
following letter. It is from Stark Young, the New
Republic's dramatic critic.
"My dear Mr. Henderson-
I have read of your dramatic adven-
tures recently in Ann Arbor, and have
been meaning to give myself the pleasure
of writing to wish you success with the
productions and at the same time to con-
gratulate you on having secured Miss
Cowl. She has so consistently represented
in our theatre these past seasons a high
and splendid culture of her own, that her
going to such a place as the University of
Michigan has seemed to me a fine omen
I have watched this actress with her
delicate modesty or whatever it is that
has held her back from the publicity that
would give her adoring public more idea
