Ann Arbor Should
Change Zoning Laws...
T HE CAMPUS of the University of
Michigan often has been praised
as one of the most beautiful in the country and
this is true as one keeps his eyes religiously
trained on the campus itself. However, let him
glance away from Angell Hall for just a moment
and his sight will be assaulted by a group of
buildings which Would hurt the aesthetic sense of
the most unconcerned.
Between Newberry Hall and Jefferson St., there
are already a dairy lunch and a barbecue stand
that would look entirely at home in the smallest
cross-road village and now a gasoline station is
being built on the corner.
The gasoline station is one of the most un-
sightly features of this automobile age and many
successful attempts have been made to check its
advance on the better looking parts of the city.
The principal check of this kind is the city zoning
ordinance which regulates the type of building
that may be erected in a certain area.
In the case of this station, the zoning ordinance
is powerless, for this corner, right across from
the main front of the campus, is included in the
part of the city in which stores, garages, and gas
stations may be built. In other words, the City
Council approves of the building of such structures
across from Ann Arbor's greatest asset, the Uni-

his program with courses Which fail so com-
pletely to interest him that every class period
seems to last two hours. We do not advise him
to take courses which will require him to spend
so much of his time working. We do not advise
him to take courses from fact factory fanatics
who become so involved in technicalities that
they .never quite find time to present the essence
of a subject.E
To a student who has come here without any
definite aim and still does not wish to waste
time while in the University, we commend the
practice of seeking advice from some member
of the faculty, who is sufficiently familiar with
the courses offered at the University and with the
student's problems to be able to help him to adjust
himself to a sane program.
Art Reviews
An opportunity to compare several modern
styles of painting is offered those who visit the
exhibit of the works by six modern artists which
is now being held in Alumni Memorial Hall, con-
tinuing until December 14th.
Morris Kantor, born in Russia, but who has
lived in the United States since he was 13 years
old, takes delight in portraying bits of life in
America, both past and present, in a truly Amer-
ican spirit. Two typical paintings in this man-
ner are the "Staircase" and the "Sea Chest"
both possessing mystery and symbolism. Mr.
Kantor has won considerable recognition in the
last few years with this style, However, the port-
rait "Hindu" is handled in a different way. The
large, powerful figure is presented in a straight-
forward and sculpturesque manner.
The late Alfred Maurer, American, is repre-
sented by several canvasses which show different
phases of his development. Although some of his
distortions seem meaningless as in "Three Sisters"
or "Two Flappers" he nevertheless obtains a
charming effect.
To the admirers of Cezanne and the post im-
pressionists the works by Hofer and Pechstein
will be well received. These two artists have as-
similated various Cezanne influences and have
developed an individual style which is essentially
decorative. Two of Hofer's canvasses "Girl in Red"
and "On the Shore," done in brilliant colors, re-
veal a firm and simple structural quality. Pech-
stein's works likewise have a masterly grasp of
form. The "Figure with Tulips" is characteristic
of his solid designs formed by a subtle use of
In contrast to these artists is Oudot, French-
man, whose canvasses have a restless spirit due
to his use of tenuous forms rather than solid
structure. His figures melt into the background
'in a hazy manner, and his wriggly forms panted
in dark colors produce a theatrical effect. Char-
lemagne, also French, is noticeable for his clever
use of extremely dark tones as in "Serge-School-
boy." He, too, is dramatic in his rather violent
use of blues and blacks. However, simplicity anc
sincerity dominate his works, thus giving to therr.
a permanent appeal.
In the two small galleries is a splendid collec-
tion of reproductions of modern paintings, prin-
cipally of the French school. These unusual colo:
prints have been recently acquired by the Divisior
of Fine Arts, and will be in the permanent collec-
tion of the Fine Arts Library.

that time New York managers have been after
everythilg with KaLifman's or Connelly's name
on it. They followed quickly ,with "To the Ladies,"
"Merton of the Movies," and a musical show
"Helen of Troy New York. In 1924; Winthrop
Ames produced their first really great play,
"Beggar on Horseback."
Now as to the collaborating-what is Kaufman,
and what is Connelly. From the point of external
evidence, we have the confession of Kaufman
himself, as regards his collaboration with Alex-
ander Woollcott on "The Channel Road," that he
"did little of the typewriting." "Poor Woollcott
did it all," he says, "while I looked out the window
at the East River." This light certainly throws
our sympathies to Connelly if such was the case
in the Kaufman-Connelly affairs.
But both men seem to be broadly humorous in
their approach to a play. Their training similar,
remember-columnists, humor hack-writers, back-
stage hangers-on-they fit Woollcott's description
perfectly as "Times Square boys." Whatever of
art that has come out of these two men has de-
veloped naturally as the force of "commedia."
And the broad laughable strokes of comedy' in
"Beggar on Horseback," "The Green Pastures,"
"Of Thee I Sing" are as surely "commedia del'
arte" of the first calibre as anything that was
ever performed. The two have risen to the first
line of contemporary dramatists.
Whatever you may think of the beggar in the
orange crop and the House of David beard riding
on the Diagonal at noonhour is beside the point
right now. If he has caused noonhour discussion
in fraternity and sorority houses to be about some-
thing else than the usual dull round, that in
itself is a moral something or other. But directly
he should have stirred everyone of our attentions
to the fact that Kaufman and Connelly's splen-
did farce is to be playing on campus all next week.
I have met lots of old ladies who have seen
Play Production stage "Beggar on Horseback"
twice before, and who are laughing themselves
out of their precious composure already on the
expectation of seeing it. again. It promises to be
the biggest theatre event of the season.

Student Health

To be sure, the company building the station
has gone to the trouble of having an architect
design an architecturally good-looking gas sta-
tion, but it is still a gas station.
There are three ways in which these disfigure-
ments could be removed, the University could buy
the land and remove the buildings in question,
the owner of the land could refuse to allow it to
be used for such purposes, it could be rented for
some other and more aesthetic purposes, or the
city could change the zoning ordinances.
Inasmuch as the latter'appears the most feas-
ible, we urge that the council consider changing
this land from zone D to zone B at its next
Steer Cear Of
Fact Factory Fanatics...
SINCE classification time brings the
tudent once more face to face with
the question of what courses he will take, it nat-
urally arouses another much more serious ques-
tion-the question of what a student wants to get
out of his college training.
Those who don't know exactly what they want,
who come to the University merely to enjoy them-
selves before settling down to work, might just
as well thumb through the bulletin courses and
nick out enough "pipes" to make the requisite

The Theatre
Being Some Notes On The Authors
Of That Splendid Farce "Beggar On Horseback"
The most annoying thing to a critic when the
play before him is a collaboration is to figure out
which ideas come from this one and which from
that one. Not that it is really important, y' know,
but the public has come to expect just that from
its critic. And then, critics are a feline race any-
how, always have been, even before intimate criti-
zism set them to plugging out all the hidden dirt
about an artist. As if one could really find the
motives for something artistic in suppressed emo-
tions! In fact, say, that an artist rebelled against
the tyranny of oatmeal, oatmeal, oatmeal-for-
breakfast in the period previous to his creation!
For all the folly of it, the critic, just the same, is
after the oatmeal you wouldn't eat for breakfast
It has made jobs for hundreds who otherwise
might have been just good "spillers-of-dirt" ir
the hundred-and-one hangouts of a town. Here':
something about the collaborators of "Beggar on
Both Kaufman and Connelly began their career.,
about twenty years ago as newspaper humor-
,olumnists,.Kaufman in Washington and Connelly-
in Pittsburgh. But before that, Connelly's father':.
name was Patrick, and Kauffman's mother's name
was Nettie. Both parents (for fond they were)
thougit their sons would be President when they
grew\v up. Particularly, Mrs. Nettie Kaufman, a,,
her boy was educated in the beautiful Pittsburgh
public schools, and looked like Lincoln through
the eyes. What a howl that Kaufman finally be-
came a dramatic critic for New York papers, and
that Connelly got his stuff printed in 'Life and
Right after the war Mr. Avery Hopwood, of
Michigan fame, held down the job as the most
popular comedy writer in New York, and there
was nothing two aspirants for fame could do to
shake the public away from Hopwood's bedroom
situations. Anyway, Kaufman and Connelly
weren't inclined to the bedstead plot. But in 1921,
the two wrote in collaboration a silly little play,
called "Dulcy." It started off with a bang, with

"Intestinal Inffuenza," is a semi-popular term
frequently given to a group of disorders of the
intestinal tract. Chills, excessive feeling of body
warmth, headache, general aching, loss of appe-
tite, nausea, abdominal cramps, sensation of pres-
sure and fullness of the abdomen, diarrhea and
general prostration are common symptoms. To
associate the name "influenza" with all such in-
testinal conditions is incorrect. It should only
)e used to designate those disorders accompany-
ng other signs of influenza. The above named
ntestinal symptoms are not so characteristic of
nfluenza as of many other conditions.
One can not place such a large group of dif-
erent disorders under a common heading. The
:ause must be taken into consideration and many
imes this can not be determined. The stomach
end intestinal tract is in reality a long tube which
nay be affected in any one or all of its portions
At any time. A more suitable name for such con-
litions might be anatomically derived from the
.art affected; for example, acute gastritis, if
,tomach, or acute enteritis if the process is in
he small intestine, etc.
Most individuals, especially students, gain the
.dea that all such acute conditions of the digestive
ract are due entirely to faulty diet, where, as a
natter of fact, only a small percentage may be
raced to this cause. The greater number of cases
ire due to infection of the gastro-intestinal tract.
These may be secondary to or complications of
nfections present elsewhere in the body; for ex-
umple, an individual may develop an acute diar-
-hea incident with what seems to be an ordinary
lead cold, or it may be due to infections primary
n the intestines themselves. Some of the more
:ommon organisms causing such abdominal con-
jitions include the typhoid-paratyphoid group,
;hose responsible for influenza and the common
:old, the bacillus of Flexner and Gartner,
amoebae, flagellates and other parasites.
A word concerning food infection is desirable.
Sere the problem of infected food handlers often
)ecomes apparent; the food becoming infected
n its preparation prior to canning or serving.
'xamination of University food handlers by the
iealth Service takes this into consideration. Food
ntoxication most frequently arises from eating
;ontaininated and improperly cooked foods such
is meats and meat dishes, milk, fish and seatfoods,
ausage, ice cream, cheese and unripe fruits.
Ingesting irritating materials such as certain
elf-prescribed medicines or chemicals may give
ise to acute intestinal upsets. Under certain in-
tances some individuals may develop similar ab-
lominal attacks by eating perfectly good unin-
ested food or by coming in contact with various
hings in their environment. Such individuals,
ye say, show a sensitivity to such products, Such
)eople should have sensitization tests made to de-
ermine the exciting cause. When the causative
igent is eliminated or the patient desensitized, he
or she will in many cases remain free of attacks.
Acute appendicitis is responsible for many attacks
of aciute abdominal pain.
Lastly, there is a large group of individuals,
who develop periodic attacks of abdominal dis-
tress under certain emotional strain which may be
classified as functional indigestion. Normally, the
intestine is under certain nervous tension and
when altered, gives rise to increased motility of
the bowel with a resulting intestinal upset.
Accurate diagnosis necessarily is of primary im-
portance and in all cases a qualified physician
should be consulted in order to determine whether
or not the abdominal condition in question is a
