In spite of the reprovals.that we feel sure will
come from the clean sports advocates, hockey
owes a great deal of its claim to popularity to the
frequent fights. They make the game m),Vre ex
citing. They are what the spectators secretly hope
for and what they really come to see.
Consequently, the fights have become part of
the game F&r this reason, we are not as ashaincd
of our hockey team as we might be when we see
one of the members punch an opponent in the
jaw. We are really not ashamed at all. In fact,
secretly, of course, we are glad, and, if he wins
the fight before the referee benches him, a little

W ATER HAS BEEN a dominant po-
litical issue in Ann Arbor for
years, as important to the city as the beer ques-
tion is and has been to the nation. All that has
been necessary to start a controversy has been to
utter the word, "water."
But, for the past year, the issue has been dor-

WHEN JUSTICE TRIUMPHS
Prosecutor Albert J; Rapp has withdrawn
charges against William K. Richards, air-minded
defrauder of students and local merchants. Rich-
ards is free and homeward bound to discuss the
matter with his father and "voluntarily" enter a
Minnesota institution to "rest and recover."- It
seems that Richards has paid his debts to the big
business interests of the city and evidently thus
satisfied, the court has withdrawn the prosecu-
It matters little that many students were
fleeced and that some had to borrow money in
order to return home for Christmas vacation.
Those who were taken home were not brought
back in spite of the round trip agreement of the
tickets. Richards had advertised 3 1-2 hour service
to New York in tri-motored, dual-piloted, heated,
mail planes equipped with radio beacon. Those
who were "fortunate" enough to receive half-way
transportation were taken in small, refrigerated,
single piloted, single-motored planes, which had
no radio facilities whatsoever. (The writers are
omitting the marked details of the trip as these
cannot be blamed upon Richards) At any rate,
the plane reached its destination after about 6 1-2
hours actual flying time.
Now that the merchants of Ann Arbor have
been repaid, the amount owed the students seems
to be of no concern. The court, under control of
Judge Sample, deserves much praise for allowing
the outcome of the matter to rest upon the dis-
cretion of the mentally unbalanced criminal.
Since when are swindlers permitted to go free and
return home to talk things over with their

Who said the best acting was in' the old days

This picture goes to show that soon our pro-
phecy will come true-that the greatest actors will
all be in the films. Look at Arliss, the Barrymores.
And Leslie Howard, who was great in '"Outward
Bound," though relegated by unintelligent pro-
ducers to a comparatively minor part, is little
short of superb in "The -Animal Kingdom.

course, that the roles assigned to the wife and

Good shots: Tom appraising Cecelia's charms
on the night their betrothal is announced; Daisy,
the mistress, asking Collier to marry her, in her
high apartment overlooking the East River.
Typical good lines: the famous one about the
brass monkeys, injected into a conversation with
ultra-smoothness; Collier telling his butler that
he is leaving Cecelia.
We disagree with the frequent criticism leveled
against "The Animal Kingdom": that H wai'd.
