Screen Reflections
Waring's Pennsylvanians, who open a four-day
run at the Michigan tomorrow, need no intro-
duction to Michigan students; but that they got
their theatrical start in Ann Arbor and that one
of the most prominent members is a Michigan
graduate is not generally known.
Early in 1922--slightly more than ten years
ago-a little-known but rising Pennsylvania State
College -orchestra was engaged to play for the
Michigan J-Hop. When that orchestra had fin-
ished their J-Hop engagement they were on their
way to fame and fortune, for' they were booked

tour with three of the country's major vaudeville
Of the 12 men who originally began the orches-
tra, 10 are still on the payroll and nine will appeal
in Ann Arbor for the four-day engagement. One
of them is Stuart Churchill, '30, Phi Mu Alpha
member and one of the most versatile members
of the band. Stuart and the other 21 members of
the band will arrive in Ann Arbor at noon today
and have reserved 40 seats for the Northwestern
game-the first football gamze they have seen
since their last engagement here five years ago.

and then went to the
Madison Theatre, De-

they opened on what was y'

run and which eventual-

weeks. From Detroit they f
went to the West Coast i
and from there began the
rapid climb to a top po-

dance orchestras of thed
world. Those 12 Penn

Editorial Comment

By Barton KaneI
The Colurun Makes
Its Final
"ARE we to good to print what the Almighty
has allowed to happen?"
I began this column as an experiment. I wanted
to attract attention to the editorial page; to have
that page read.
THE experiment worked. Students read Diago-
nal; thought the items amusing until they
applied to them; then no longer thought them
Incidents that were true were labeled "poor
taste," "obscene." Evidently the shoe fit too well
and was binding.

found that freshmen whom I referred to in
this columay lost prestige with fraternities and
sororities. This, I claim, is the fault of the pseudo-
sophistication that exists in many of these socic-

rHIS is the last appearance of Diagonal and I
want it made clear that no Universtiy authority
has ordered me to quit. The only complaints that
come from the administration were those made to
them by certain students. It was the undergradu-
ates, not the members of the faculty or adminis-
tration, who could not take a ride.
ONE fraternity took an innocent remark seri-
ously. A brother called the Society Editor
of The Daily; told her that from now on he would
not give her any social notes. That is the situa-
* * *
AND then this:
To The Editor:
How long has it been since The Daily has sunk
so low as to spread information concerning the
private life of the faculty members?;
There was an article in the Diagonal column of
the publication Thursday morning, the last item
of the group which was, to my estimation, the
rankest and rawest bit of journalism, if it can be
called such, I have ever seen in a s u p p o s e d 1 y
decent paper.
If The Daily is planning to start spreading such
information to the world, why not change to a
tabloid? Then all the scandal can be exposed.
There is plenty of it, you might post a staff mem-
ber at the Arboretum and get a list of all entering
and duration of stay, you might also post another
at the stadium, nights.
If you are going to start Winchellizing, that's
about three steps better than your Renoing, why
not go into it in a big way, this small town stuff
is disgusting, to say the least.
I hope that in the future you will either be
more conservative and follow the staid old poli-
cies of the Michigan Daily or rename the paper
and make a tabloid of it!

Editors of college papers are in somewhat of at
tough spot when they consider the thixigs that
they write about the college or university with
which they are connected. There remains before
them their professional function of giving the
facts regardless of the effect if it is not too injuri-
ous to those concerned, and the so-called tradet
journal function that demands only sweetness and
light on subjects pertaining to the old Alma
Mater. .
It is somewhat of a problem, and criticism
will be hurled in his direction either way an
editor turns. There are considerations that wouldt
warrant the following of either track in prefer-
ence to the other, but then it is best to use as1
good judgment as one possesses to choose betweent
the two functions on the various cases.
The laboratory function of the student owned1
and operated newspaper must not be overlooked.'
Distortion in the news as a constant diet will
entirely ruin the working staff for commercial
practice when they graduate. The constant effort
to present the university or whatever college you
are attending in the best light before the public
even though the facts do not warrant such action
is demoralizing to one's sense of news values, and
come to make the public distrust the newspaper
as a purveyor of the truth.
Those who criticize collegiate publications
should take these facts into consideration and
realize that the editor must give his school a
fair break and even a little more than a fair
break in any fight in which the school deserves
the support, and although he does this at times,
at other times he can be depended upon to give
the news as impartially as any commercial news-
paper. College publications are usually even more
impartial than most commercial publications as
they are not personally interested in so many
fields. Critics should be a little lenient and con-
sider all the special problems facing a collegiate
editor before running him down on mere prin-
ciple. --The Daily Illini
A danger that must be met almost immedi-
ately is the glorification of working one's way
through college. This year has n e c e s s a r i1 y
brought about an increased number of people
who must world their way through college or not
get through.
With this natural increase from that stand-
point there has also come a group that is working
its way through just for the drama and glory that
they believe it will bring them. In their effort to
become a second Abraham Lincoln or George
Washington by being able to say that they worked
their way thrngh cnllege, this groun nrevents

to the Editor,
Last Tuesday evening Mr. Paul Voelker gave
a speech in the Natural Science Auditorium. The
illustrious gentleman from Battle Creek spoke on
the subject 'The Platform of the Democratic Par-
ty," That speech was one of the most braken
outrages ever committed by the Democrati{ party.
That speech was a deliberate insult to the stu-
dents who braved the rain to listen to the gentle-
man, His economic solutions were remarkable,
but his politics was ridiculous. I will not say that
the college president was insincere. He was very
enthusiastic over his subject. But I will say---
and I say it in condemnation of the Democratic
politicians of this city-that Mr. Voelker was mis-
guided on the subject and that his brilliant en-
thusiasm was prostituted in the interests of one
of the lowest political tricks in modern history.
The essence of the political part of Mr. Voel-
ker's speech was this: Mr. Roosevelt and the dem-
ocratic party stand for great social, almost revo-
lutionary, reforms. If he thought the socialist
party had a chance of winnng, he would vote the
socialist ticket. But as he doesn't think so, he will I
support Roosevelt, because he thinks the demo-
cratic party will do just as well. So he calls up all
good d e m o c r a t s and socialists to get behind
Roosevelt in order to create a new society in
which the working man -- whom we all love so
well and who will always have a place in our
hearts - will come into his own.
When he was told that a national leader said
this year that the democratic party is safe for
Wall Street, he didn't know what to do about it,
When he was asked who was financing the
democratic party, none other than Horatio Abbot,
grand sachem of Michigan Democracy, oft-times
considered candidate for representative, governor,
senator, etc., rose and spake. Fear not for all of
you can see the party is as poor as can be. And
all the dough we have, he said, we get from those
who earn their bread. Not even a stamp to send
our cheer to all the voters far and near. We're
having an awful time this year - even as you
and I.
There's no use in telling students it's all hokum.
It's an open secret that both the old parties are
financed and supported by newspaper powers and
capitalists, who in turn will get favors and consi-
deration. Certainly it's nuts to expect socialistic,
or near-socialistic reforms from a party that is
morally mortgaged to Wall Street, Hearst and Mc-
Cormick. And here's where the political trickery
comes in.
Norman Thomas is polling between 7 and 8 per-
cent of the votes in the Literary Digest poll. That
will mean between 2,000,000 and 3,000,000 votes in
November. And that's what the politicians are
after. In order to get it they are sending speak-
ers into socialistic centers. They are telling stu-
dents that since Thomas hasn't much of a chance,
they better support something just as good, such
as their candidate, who does so love the working
man. Vote-bait! Like their platforms it is pure
