to believe that his statement was either ill-con-I
sidered or prompted by the wish that such a
1method might be used in his forthcoming game
with the Panthers. For, to get to the bottom of
it, we doubt his last statement that "after all,
that's football." If scrimmage is football, the
i name ought to be changed to "carry-the-ball or,
something," because kicking has always been an
essential feature of the game since its beginning.

A New Organizationo
Finds Student Welcome
E VERYWHERE in the country there
has developed an increasing in-
terest in foreign motion pictures. It seems to be
expressive of man's eternal curiosity to know what
his neighbor is doing; and of the fact that good
pictures, like good cooks, are never too numerous.
In many places a demand for these pictures has
chrystallized into organizations whose function it
it to obtain the films for its members or the gen-
eral public.
On this campus a movement to organize such
a group has met with remarkable success. Only
a few weeks old, the Art Cinema League has be-
come one of the largest local organizations on
campus in point of membership. In view of the
size and resources of the League even at this early
date, it gives every promise of achieving its pur-
pose this year and becoming a lasting institution.
The Art Cinema League purposes to bring screen
masterpieces of France, Germany, England, Swe-
den, Russia, and possibly those of other European
countries -to Ann Arbor. Since the program is
limited, and since there are many good pictures
akailable, the films should should be highly enter-
taining.
Many of these are unusual in technique; many
of them are successful experiments by artists who
did not work under "box office" pressure.
If the student body and the faculty continue to
support the enterprise in the present enthusiastic
manner, members of the League expect to accu-
mulate a surplus which they will use to promote
other activities of a kindred nature. They intend
to bring lecturers and dramatic companies here.
The pictures, of course, will be open to the
public, as well as to members. The first picture
will be shown next Monday night at the Mendel-
ssohn Theatre. It is entitled "Ten Days That
Shook the World" and is based on John Reed's
book on the October Revolution in Russia. The

picture was produced in Russia. and was directed
by Eisenstein, whom admirers have called "the
James Joyce of the movies."
There is no doubt that the Arts Cinema League
should and will receive substantial support from
the faculty and student body. Probably no other
att has so huge ax following as the silver screen,
and the League has taken upon itself the task of
bringing the finest films produced in other coun-
tries than our own within reach-entertainment
hitherto inqccessib e tu must of us.
Football Or 'Carry.
The Ball?
~ N AN ASSOCIAThD PRESS disk
..patch from Chicago a few days
ago, Coach "Pop" Warner of Stanford, on his way
to Pittsburgh, delivered himself of a scathing
titicism of the new "Dc ad b"ll"' rule, and wound
111 by saying:
"If they really want to make a new rule, they
should make one that has been needed for a long

iority in punting was the factor that provided the
winning team with the victory.
If first downs from scrimmage only are to be
considered, then of course passing is ignored, and
one of the most thrilling features of the game is
gone. Does not the successful 40-yard pass repre-
sent to many customers the thrill for which they
paid their three dollars? And would the same peo-
ple be willing to pay the same amount to see a
game that promised only one line plunge after
another?
On a certain Saturday this season three im-
portant games were won on the strength of
a blacked kick, and yet Mr. Warner woild have
this highly-specialized and practiced effort
ignored.
It is trte, a game might be invented in which
two teams of 11 men go out on the field and
count up the number of times that each team is
able to advance ten yards in four attempts, the
victor being the one with the greatest number
after an hour's play, but would that be football,
anything like it, or a satisfactory substitute for it?
We doubt it.

EAST SIDE VOTES STRAIGHT-
OI, YEAH?
To the Editor:
When I read your editorial on November 19.
1932, asserting that the citizens of the east side of
Ann Arbor voted straight and that they should be
condemned for that as failing to do their duty
in setting an intelligent example for the rest of
the electorate-on the assumption that the east
side represented the University faculty vote-I
was curious to know whether you had any justIfif-
cation for making such a charge. I did, therefore,
what your editorial writer should have done--
went to the county clerk's office, the city clerk;
office, and also consulted several election officials
in the 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th wards to ascertain
Whether or not split voting was more prevalent on
the west side than on the east side of town, and
whether or not the east side did really vote
straight, as you-claimed. You said "We find that is
special group has been returned to office (in the
county) time after time, chiefly 'because of the
straight ballots cast by the voters of the east
,side." Professor Paton pointed out in The Daily
for November 23 that the east side is not entirely
composed of members of the University faculty.
In fact. a large number of persons living there
are not connected with the University. Hence,
even if straight voting were quite prevalent in
these wards it would not follow that the Univer-
sity population had voted straight.
Neither is it true that the east side voted
straight, as the following facts will show. In the
6th ward 56.5 per cent of the ballots were split.
In the 2nd precinct of the ith ward, 59 per cent
of the votes were split. On the other hand, in the
1st precinct of the 7th ward, which has compara-
tively few of the University staff among its resi-
dents, we find that the number of split ballots was
only 48 per cent of the total. In the 3rd ward
which is not a University ward and which went
Democratic in the last election, 51 per cent of
the tickets were split. The 4th ward, which also
is non-University and went Democratic in the
recent election, had 45 per cent split voting. Ergo,
it is false to say that the east side voted straight
-rather one should say that they showed a
greater tendency to split their tickets than other
portions of the city in this last election.
In fact the one Democrat who was elected in
Washtenaw County at this election would not have
returned to office if the east side voters had
not split their ballots in his favor. He gained ap-
proximately 350 votes in the 6th ward and in the
2nd precinct of the 7th ward over the average
run of Democrats. He was elected by a bare
plurality of 181 over his Republican opponent.
After inquiring among members of the faculty
I have concluded that in most elections the Uni-
versity electorate has a greater tendency to vote
split tickets than the average run of the electorate.
The facts which I have given above, for the

election just past at any rate, show that in the
districts in which the members of the University
faculty are most numerous, splitting was notice-
ably more prevalent. A good editorial writer
should. be certin of his facts before he draws
conclusions about voting habits and condemns a
respected portion of his community. It would be
interesting to know how the writer of this careless
editorial voted. Probably like his political precep-
tor, a straight Democratic ticket! - Or perchance
he did not vote at all.
I feel that one other fact should be pointed
out. It is not an obvious proposition that voting
straight shows lack of intelligence. In fact, there
are many who would contend that with the
jungle" ballot prevalent In Michigan today,
traight voting may be more intelligent than split
voting. Government is our largest and most
complicated business. Divided councils do not or-
dinarily make for efficiency or success in conduct-
ing its business. Indeed, the Democratic county
clerk just elected may find considerable difficulty
in carrying on his duties in Republican surround-
ings.
In short, neither the major premise nor the
minor oremise which the writer of this editorial

compare favorably with the best men in those
bodies. Why should a Daily editorial writer take
a crack at an area and a group when he has no
facts on which to base his conclusions?
A few other facts may be interesting. I com-
mend them to The Daily. They might even serve
as the basis of an editorial commending Ann
Arbor's excellent voting record. In the 3rd ward
90 per cent of the registered electorate voted; in
the 4th, also 90 per cent; in the 6th, 91' per cent;
in the first precinct of the 7th, 9;3 per cent; and
in the 2nd precinct of that ward, 95 per cent.
rt appears that the east side showed as good a
percentage of voters as did the rest of the city.
The districts in which faculty members are most
numerous actually showed a larger per cent voting
than the 3rd and 4th wards (which went Demo-
cratic in the last election).

The Deadline for Senior ctures

I

nas Been Set

. , 4

In a program characterized by its musician-
ship, Mabel Ross Rhead, of the School of Music,
proved conclusively her rights as a pianist-and
also as a scholar. Her carefully studied effects
were almost pedantic at time, and yet they were
always innately present in the music itself.and
so always justified. And in a field which has
been so often labelled as the "most emotional" or
"highly ethereal" of all the arts, whose "fleeting
transciency" makes it purely subjective, and
therefore "psychological," it is a pleasure to hear
playing that, being an evident result of a careful
technique and a sincerely scholarly attitude to-
wards the music, can be considered as one might
regard a mathematical theorem that has been
gathered from a minute scientific research.
Not only the performance but the program itself
manifests this quality, achieving a varied unity
through a nice selection and grouping of the indi-
vidual numbers. There was a common element
running through them all, partly gained from the
way in which they were done, but mostly inherent
in the actual notes, that gave one a pleasing sense
of completeness. The lovely Rameau Gavotte and
Variations had a clarity and a fluency that are
hard to get on the modern piano, whose legatos
and sustaining powers are blurring handicaps in
usic of this type. The Bach Toccata aid Fugue,
which is comparatively rare on concert programs,
is a work of infinite expressiveness and was done
with an evident feeling for these dramatic qual-
ities--especially in the fantasia like Toccata-and
yet the intellectual conception was never lost in
the emotional. Beethoven's Sonata in A major,
opus 101, carried on this emotional thread to new
and ecstatic heights, which again were always
beautifully refined- and never began to come near
the untrammieled rhiuipsodizing which so often
makes this Sonata a maudlin slush of moods.
Mrs. Rhead's temperament is well suited to
Brahms and both the Intermezzo and the two
Cappriccios had an authenticity about their in-
terpretation that rang true. Her Chopin was
exquisitely lovely, with its lucid phrasing, and bril-
giant fluid embellishments. It was Chopin that is
seldom heard, which made it all the more enjoy-
able.

Whatever else may be said

Roosevelt presidency, none can

the Roosevelt telegram. It was apparent even in
the cheerfully informal and personal tone that
characterized it all.
Some commentators scented a bit of mischief
in the Roosevelt declaration that he would be "de-
lighted" to meet the President as the latter had
suggested. They seemed to think he had adopted
that famous Rooseveltism of another epoch with
malice aforethought.
PURELY INFORMAL
What impressed the Bystander particularly was
something quite different. Left often to surround
himself with a battery of expert advisers of his
own selection, Mr. Hoover having made his invita-
tion wide enough forth, Mr. RoosAevelt elected
instead an informal cross-table talk with the
Pres ident
He neither committed himself in advance to
any course of action or policy, nor did he embar-
rass in any way the personal problem he must
so soon tackle of picking out his own cabinet. It
looked like a neat escape from a possibly perplex-
ing situation.
Then Mier. Roosevelt also suggested that "in the
last analysis" responsibility in meeting the imme-
