States destroy one another, would again be undis-
puted mistress of the sea, and see her colonizing
power accordingly re-expanded.
"I think that if you remember the attitude of
England in the past year," said.Mr. Durant, "it
will be evident that she has been following such
a -policy.".The chief feature of this policy, Mr.
Durant said, was to remain on the best possible
terms with Japan, primarily by refusing to co-
operate with the U. S. Stimson Ioctrine of non-
recognition of Manchukuo.
Mr. Durant's picture fit together as smoothly as
a jig-saw puzzle. The audience rewarded him for
his exposition with resounding applause.
But last week the British delegate to the League
of Nations committee of 19 declared that "the
non-recognition of Manchukuo is essential." Eng-
land's 'leniency to Japan has turned out to have
been due to soon-ending patience, and not to the
sinister design imputed by Mr. Durant. So the
soundness of last month's prophecy collapses like
a house of cards.
=And the discredit of Mr. Durant's logic is fur-
ther contributed to by the consensus of current
editorial opinion, which is that England's gesture
was made, not from a policy of non-co-operation
with this country, but for precisely the opposite
reason-because President-Elect Roosevelt has an-
nounced that he will continue to follow the Stim-
son Doctrine.
Perhaps this tendency of Mr. Durant to indulge
in the far-fetched explains why most members of
the philosophy department smile "hen anyone
mentions "The Story of Philosophy."

No Stars

Four stars means extraordinary; three stars very
good; two stars good; one star just another picture;
no stars keep away from it.

"Heritage of the Desert" is a horse opera adapt-
ed from the-}Zane Grey novel -of the- same name.
Not so long ago a radio comedian said "He's the
kind of guy you'd use for a blueprint. if you
wanted to manufacture idiots." Similarly, "Heri-
tage of the Desert" would make an excellent blue-
print for the manufacture of westerns.
It has every characteristic of the dramas which
some years ago inspired boys of from ten to four-
teen years to stand outside moving picture houses
and argue with absolute sincerity the relative las-
so-throwing ability of Hoot Gibson, Tom Mix, and
Buddy Roosevelt. There are not one, but two, vil-
lains; a pretty heroine; a bluff old father; a lean,
tanned, gray-eyed hero; many horse thieves; a
comedian; and of course, a -land dispute.
The denotation "no stars" is not meant to in-
dicate that there is no merit whatsoever in the
show concerned. "No stars" means you can easily
find more profitable entertainment. If "Heritage
of the Desert'" is viewed purely as a western, fa-
vorable comparison with its brother pictures,
which are legion; is possible. But in an age which
has repudiated the western 100 per cent except as
a children's Saturday morning show, it exacts real
resolution to watch a feature-length movie of this
Briefly: Young, pretty Judy is loved by Snap,
black-sheep son of Adam Nabb, whose strategi-
cally located claim is sought after, honestly at
first, then crookedly by villain Holderness. An
eastern surveyor, Jack, is waylaid by Holderness'
men before he- reaches the Nabb- establishment.
He suspects things. Who wouldn't suspect David
Landau. of something? There are, two or three
plots to undermine Nabb, an almost-wedding,
gun-play, a bear's attack on a herd of sheep, and
then the inevitable showdown with the "good guys
beating up 'on the bad guys" as it used to be
put. And Jack marries Judy-he wasn't badly
hurt after all.

Have You
Heard About
Foo- Foo?



Freshmen and many other students who have
given little thought to forming a philosophy of
life received some valuable information from Dr.{
D. S. -Robinson who spoke on "Building a Philo-
sophy of Life" at convocation Wednesday.
Prof. Robinson pointed out that upon entering
college a student is confronted with three courses,
one of which he must take. The first path is one
of complete indifference .to the influence of the
new environment. The second course is one of
abandoning the old principles and ideals and un-
resistingly adopting all the newly proferred ones.
The third way is one of clinging to many of his
original principles and modifying them according
to new circumstances.
The latter idea of steering down the "middle
of the road" is advocated widely and has been
adopted by most broadminded individuals. It is
easy to find examples of rock-ribbed conservatives
who cling tenaciously to dogmatic beliefs im-
pressed upon them in childhood. On the other
hand, it is not difficult to point out gullible stu-
dents whose philosophy has been so plastic that
after a few months at college or away from home
they undergo a complete revolution.
The. world changes -constantly and we should
mould ourselves to allow for evolution. Now is the
time to take stock of our equipment, throw away
the dogmatic and after deep consideration, adopt
worthwhile modifications. One of the purposes of
education is to enable students to think clearly
and co-ordinately. To do that we must have open
minds to consider all things fairly.

Union Haircuts
The Union is still charging 45 cents for hair-
cuts. Every other shop'in town is, charging 35-
cents.. The Union, a student club, is a non-
profit organization and exists solely for the
students. Yet the Union will not meet the town
Ann Arbor's
Water Supply Dilemma. .
TARE ANY ordinary group of' Ann
.1Arbor citizens, Say they are stand-
ing on the corner, lazily discussing the weather,
the bank holiday, Prohibition repeal. Suddenly
a demon appears out of the air and whispers one
magic word, "water," into each conversationalist's
ear. There is an immediate, startling transforma-
tion. Everyone starts yelling facts, figures, theor-
ies, arguments, insinuations, a whole mass of
verbiage, and no one will listen to anyone else.
If one wants to start a fight in Ann Arbor simply
mention the word, "water." Things are bound to
The Michigan student's position on this is simple
enough: he- doesn't like the water. It is much too
hard. It has a disagreeable taste and often a
disagreeable odor. It cakes upon the skin after
one takes a bath. The student wants to see some
change made, either by installing a water soften-
ing plant and pumping the present well supply to
that plant, or by taking water from the Huron
River and ridding it of impurities by a filtration
The Board of Water commissioners has ex-
pressed itself in favor of the latter proposal, but
Ann Arbor taxpayers have protested against the'
cost of constructing such a filtration plant. The
Board replies that most of the money can be bor-
rowed from the R. F. C., and the additional
costs can be carried by the Water Department's
present revenue, without an increase in taxes. The
taxpayers respond that it will be necessary to
pay the money some day and that this burden
will fall upon them.
There cannot be much questioning of the tax-
payer's position. If a filtration plant is going to
be built it is going to cost something, and the.
citizens, who will benefit from the plant will
have .to pay for it. But it is equally true that a
water softening plant will cost money; that, in
short, if we are ever going to get decent water
in Ann Arbor the citizens are going to stand the
bill. Finally, the citizens are paying for bad water.
The toll annually taken on plumbing by hard
water, plus the cost of operating private water
softeners, is no small sum. This expenditure will
exist so long as the city continues with its present
water arrangement.
Thus it would appear that the costs are fairly
even whatever happens. It would seem, therefore,
that the advantages to be derived from a decent
permanent water supply should lead the citizens,
as they led the Board of Water Commissioners,
after an exhaustive study of the problem, to a
filtration plant at the Huron river.





'Play Production opened "Hedda Gabler" aus-
piciously last night. For if nothing else--and we-
certainly did not say that there is nothing else-
last night's performance of the Ibsen classic dis-
closed two facts. First, it proved that Edward
Freed can be and is the most promising character
actor on campus today; second, it showed that
Vivian Cohen has a remarkable insight and in-
telligence in playing intricate tragic parts.
Hedda last night was powerful, menacing, frus-
trated, and it was Miss Cohen that made her
so, in spite of the fact that through over-inten-
sity and over-ambition she at times threatened
her own purpose. For Vivian Cohen's acting is a
curious mixture of almost startling brilliance
and unfortunate overplaying.
In her best moments she held the stage un-
questionably. A remarkable stage presence coupled
with the ability to be significant every moment
she was on the stage served their purpose well
and makes the mention of her weaknesses almost
But they are weaknesses, traceable generally
to the very potency that gave her what was un-
doubtedly a success. Her voice, in general power-
ful and imbued with the quality of unusual ver-
satility, at times carried her beyond her goal. She
cooed just a little too much; wailed once or twice
when wailing was not in order; sneered when she
need only have spoken. Her other weakness is also
merely an outgrowth of a strength-her gestures.
They were either exellent or bad, and, happily, far
more. often the former. Her grace in moving on
the. stage at times approached the point where it
might best be described as floating.
Mr. Freed, for his part, was considerably more
consistent, more completely the character than
any of the rest of the cast. He gave George Tes-
man a simpering, indulgent loathsomeness that
speaks well for Mr. Windt's direction. Although
at times hampered by voice, through his work he
was without question the maladjusted, unseeing
scientist of the play.
Mary Pray, as Mrs. Elvsted, was charming and
alert, though mightily overshadowed by Miss Co-
hen, while ;James Doll created a distinguished
Judge Brack.

Dear Editor: Reverberations of 19th century
boys' school tactics have recently echoed forth
from the sedate cloisters of one of our ne plus
ultras. Following the much-too-hastily-hushed-up
dissatisfaction occasioned by the deluge of re-
quests from students desiring to be relieved from
rooming contracts, comes a choice bit; in fact a
possible raison d'etre: maids and janitors have
orders to snoop and pry into hidden corners for
reminiscences of visits from John Barleycorn.
Evidently the zeal with which the august
learned coerce the student's mental activity has
not escaped his own private affairs. What fodder
for revolution! Small wonder that such conduct
creates the very creatures whose mother could
scarce intend should be borne. The elder replies,
"This is my house and by God you do what I say
or get out."
But where is the alternative? It might not be
out of order to remark that the rub is that they
can't get out.
Quite so, Indignant, quite so.
