Paring Down 'Body
Building' Requirements...
O PPONENTS of paternalism won a
great victory during the examina-
tion period when the literary college faculty re-
duced required physical education for women from
two to one year, and, by so doing, alleviated in
part, one of the most obnoxious aspects of "get-
ting a diploma."
As we nintained in campaigning for the low-
ering of requirements in the "body building" pro-
gram, exercise is a splendid thing for the under-
graduate but a physcial education program
should be sufficiently attractive to enlist students
of their own volition.
While we congratulate the University adminis-
tration for its forward step, we must at the samxe
time remind it that the race is only half Won.
There is sill one year of required physical educa-
tion for both men and women; - -

T HE MOST unintelligent bit of cen-
soring of the year has been done
by Prof. W. R. Slaughter, publications adviser
of Northwestern University, who has banned the
word "beer" from all student publications.
"Beer," says the Professor, "has nothing to do
with students, no matter what is done about it
in Washington."
While we will not grant the statement made by
Professor Slaughter, nevertheless, even if it were
assumed, we still can see no justification for his
An earthquake in China, the death of King
George, the election of a president, do not directly
affect students. Yet students would be interested
in them, and the articles should appear in college
We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the edi-
tors of the Northwestern publications and, as far
as Professor Slaughter is concerned, beer, beer,
beer, beer, beer, beer.

$10,000 profit in jig time. One scene which quite
well stamps the picture as a whole is Flagg's pur-
suit of Quirt, who has jumped into the former's
limousine with Tot Pepper in the hopes of a get-
away. When Quirt is finally forced to head in, he
sees two motorcycle cops in the offing, raises his
hands above his head, and acts out a holdup so
beautifully that he gets Flagg's wallet with $1,500
in addition to Hot Pepper. And so it goes. The
jokes are on the usual plane and gain the usual
laughs. If you like the pair, you'll like "Hot Pep-
per." Many fans are ready for a Flagg-Quirt
Added attractions: Paul Tompkins in an organ
program which is somewhat above the average
because of a higher popular song content, includ-
ing "Sweet Sue," "Carolina Moon," "You'll Get,
By," and others-but the usual unsingable hodge-
podge like "M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I ," "Beautiful
Katy," etc. Why not run off the leading songs of
the day without the parodies and other stalls in
between? An Our Gang Comedy-good; Para-
mount News; and "Duck Hunters" with a riotous
monologue, the best outdoor feature to date.

Musical Events

The appearance of such a chamber music group
as the Budapest String Quartet should not pass
without a comment however late it may neces-
sarily be. While the program left several things
to be desired, the ensemble had a perfection and
a spontaneity that are seldom achieved separate-
ly and are even more rarely found together. The!
fine subordination of the individual tone qualities
and the individual style of playing wrought the
four musicians into a single medium, capable of:
projecting that most delicately interwoven of all
- musical textures, the string quartet. It takes the
utmost musicianship to perform one of these
transparent little miniatures of music as it should
be done, but in their concert last Wednesday eve-
ning, these men proved conclusively that they
possessed this quality. It is to be regretted that
their program was not of a more varied nature,
for the Haydn encore was such a delightful thing
that one could not help but feel how much moreI
interesting something of that nature would have
been in place of either the rather stolidly senti-
mental Schumann or the thinly constructed Schu-
bert, which by themselves are most enjoyable,
but taken together verge toward monotony. And
when they seemed so able to play the classical and
the moderns, as well as the romanticists, it was
rather a waste to confine them to purely emo-
tional or lyric music, for even Debussy might well
be termed romantic impressionism. That quartet,
which contains some of the most inevitably beau-
tiful passages that he has ever written, is based
on a cyclic development of thematic material and
so achieves an organic unity and an evolutionary
effect of the climaxes that is lacking in the ob-
vious formality of the other works. It is interest-
ing to compare a modern treatment of this medium
of composition with those of the older schools, for
in this combination of strings we find one of the
few places where the contemporary writer is work-
ing with exactly the same materials and instru-
mental effects at his disposal that they had one
or two hundred years ago. One can only wish that
there might be many more concerts just such as
this one, so that chamber music for Ann Arbor
audiences need not be confined to three rather
unrepresentative quartets.

The meaning of the word health is of more
than academic interest. To most people the term
is thought of as absence of recognized disease.
Too. often this means no more than absence of
pain. Such interpretations of the term health are
negative in effect and often result in harm.
More serious disease causes no pain and is slow
in being recognized by the untrained person.
A better meaning of the word health is given
by the good general dictionary definition which
carries the idea of soundness of all body organs.
This suggests that health can be assured only by
a complete study of the body and its organs by a
trained examiner. Attention to one's health upon
the basis of this interpretation of the word will be
a much safer practice. It will save life and prevent
the conditions of pain and frank disease which
are the only meanings of ill health for so many
While the idea of sound organs is more useful
as a meaning of health, it leaves much to be de-
sired until the question behavior is considered.
Anyone can think of persons whose bodily organs,
including the brain, would probably pass a very
careful medical examination, but whose conduct
is seen to be far from that which is useful or
particularly desirable to anyone.
The idea of behavior or personal conduct brings I
into a consideration of health an element usually
not considered in medical examinations; it ques-
tions the mental health, such as wholesome hap-
piness. Also the meaning of the word health us-
,ally does not include the idea that health is
something to be built i,-, nositively or acquired in
greater and fuller measure,
A ccnsideraiun v± , iy desirable people has
had Dr. J. F. Williams to define health as "That
quality of life which enables one to live most and
serve best." In a discussion of his definition Dr.
Williams suggests that it is socially more desirable
to be a Socrates with a headache than a perfectly
"healthy" pig.

120 Installments
And It's Yours. .

E XAMINATIONS are over. Conver-
sation trends have shifted from
finals to grades. Record cards are in the mail. The
semester is finished.
As the new term starts, the question that every
college student is asking himself is, "academically
speaking, what did I get out of last semester?"
There are two answers.
One goes something like this:
"Two hours of A, five hours of B, six hours of
C, and three of D "
The other goes:
"A working knowledge of the structure of
American government, which I feel quite certain
I shall forget but which I can pick up again
with little difficulty; a knowledge of how valleys
and mountains are formed, which I shall get allE
mixed up some day when I try to repeat it to my
children; a basic knowledge of Sh-espeare's
more important plays, which may enable me to be
high scorer in ask-me-another games and which,
incidentally, has made me enjoy and appreciate
Shakespeare just a little bit."
The first answer is a silly one because it doesn't
mean anything. It is just a lot of letters and num-
bers which indicate an integration of attendance
at classes, ability to bluff, luck, nervous tempera-
ment during examinations, and knowledge of the
Academically speaking, knowledge of the course
is the only factor in the list that is significant
and it is significant only as long as one remem-
bers the knowledge..
And yet, the grade system is the wave-length
that the University operates on. Each letter and
each figure are installments on a diploma.

who hasn't seen a Kate Smith effort yet, youl
might try this one. Roughly speaking there are
five facts which we can promise you are tied up
in this picture.
(1) The fact that Kate Smith is pleasingly:
photographed, especially during her rendition of
the "Moon Song," which is sung as enjoyably as
e'er untrained voice could do. (2) The fact that
"Hello Everybody" is Smith material all the way,
dealt out to waiting thousands who have de-
manded the fair cigar ad as a real movie star. (3)
The fact that Kate Smith does a heavy yet some-

I never turn skeptic
When persons dyspeptic
Insist that I hear all
Their troubles and woes.
I'm always polite and
Take special delight in
The stories of illness
In sinus and nose.
I too have a failing--
I'm constantly ailing,
But I'm not a braggart
About it, Lord knows.
Mine isn't worth prating
Or casual relating;
It's justthat my credit
Has turned up its toes.

principle of the thing is all right.

No, not if they have reached the age of

common moral duty to counsel frankly be-

but the child's interest is vastly the greater.

Daughter: Mother, dear, have you and

Mother: Why,.Gwendolyn, why do you ask?
Daughter: Well, you see, Mother, it's a

duty to counsel frankly, but in which my
interests are vastly greater.
Mother: What are you talking about? Come
to the point.
