Backslide. .
E FFORTS to inject party issues into1
the non-partisan mayoralty race
in Detroit have apparently failed. The candidacy
of Harry H. Mead on an "official" Democratic
"ticket" and the attempts to form a "Detroit1
Tammany" have gone off into oblivion.
The reason for the failure of the Mead plan has
been the refusal of many of the city's leading
Democrats to support Mead. Detroit papers, not-
ably the Republican Free Press, have pointed to
this as indicating a split in the Democratic party
in southern Michigan. In the contrary,, there has1
been no split. The Detroit election i supposed to
be non-partisan. Certain men have attempted to
take advantage of the present Democratic senti-
rment for their own profit. They have not repre-
sented the party but have stolen the Jacksonian
copyright. The very fact that the city's leading
Democrats have refused to support his candidacy
proves that the party has not been involved.
If the city of Detroit is to continue under its
non-partisan system of government, which has
the advantage that it does not confuse local is-

sues with national, such moves as the abortive
Mead-Democratic "coup" must be avoided.'

Arthur Somers Roche's "Penthouse" concerns
the life of Jackson Durant, lawyer, who turns from?
society to take the cases of the city bad men.
This clever story contains quick, good direction,
and touches of character that are sincere.
Jackson Durant gets thrown out of his law firm
by his two elderly partners because of his asso-
ciation with Tony Gazotti (very well done by Nat
Pendelton) and to walk it off he goes to his sweet-
heart's country home for a rest, only to find Sue
Leonard occupied with another, Tom Siddall, and
a little cold to his kind and true excuses for not
being out sooner. Jackson returns to Tony and,
like all good men, drinks to forget. In the mean-
time Tom and Eue (Martha Sleeper who plays this
part looks a bit like Holmes himself) becomes en-

evidence points to Tom but Jackson steps in to
take matters into his own hands. Things begin to
happen and Durant employs the best friend of
Mimi Montague, Gertie Waxtd (done excellently
by Myrna Loy) in solving the frame-up on Tom
Saddall. Gertie (these names )proves herself a
real girl and without her assistance Durant would
have had a hard time beating the gangsters at
their own game.
The direction of the play is far above aver-
age (a gangster movie without a single scream in
it is quite an accomplishment now-a-days), and
Boche's plot-extrordinaire makes it an interesting
sight all the way through. The play was cast with
great skill as the actors fitted into their roles
without any difficulty. Warner Baxter is at his
best; maybe he should stick to the gang stuff, and
with Myrna Loy, make an excellent teammate,
Myrna Loy (either you like her or you can stand
her) is usually in the quiet, reserved part but here
she is enthusiastic and different. Charles Butter-
worth, has the part of Layton, Jackson Durant's
valet, and his humor is as good as ever. The re-
mainder of the cast does its part in rounding out
this well balanced movie. Nat Pendleton is de-
serving of praise in his characterization of Tony
Gazotti. Best shot; Charles Butterworth after
being kissed by Myrna Loy.
An amusing cartoon "Wake Up The Gypse In
Me", in which Rasputin (Rice-puddin in the car-
toon and Paul Whitnen are characterized, a short
subject featuring 4 dance orchestra and Hanna
Williams, and the Paramount News reel lead up to
the feature "Penthouse."

In a Fraternal organization composed of Uni-
versity students and led by upperclassmen, one
should expect to see an example of good taste in
the rushing of prospective brothers. We shall
describe a dinner served to rushees in one fratern-
ity, and the reader may draw his own conclusions.
The guests were conducted into the dinning
room where two very long tables were set up. In
the center of each long table was placed a large
pile of fruit: grapes, bananas, apples, pears, and
so forth-all decorated with green vines.
The first course consisted of a generous bowl of
bean soup with crackers. In almost any of the
homes from which these boys came, that soup
alone would have constituted at least a fourth of
the total cost of the meal; but, apparently, boys
can live better when they get away from hople.
There were generous salads of lettuce, ground
celery and salad dressing; there were delicious
rolls and bread with plenty of butter. When I
had eaten the soup, the large salad, and some
rolls and butter, I was already reaching the point
where one knows that if he eats much more, he
will later feel uncomfortable.
But whas that enough? Not by a long ways.
They were in fact just getting started. What
next? We were now confronted with a formidable,
but attractive plate heaped full of 'delicious food;
meat, potato, gravy, pineapple stained red in
cheery juice, bread, dressing and asparagus.i
What a feast!
I enjoyed the plate for a while, but alas, the
bean soup, the large salad, and the bread andI
butter I had eaten, had largely satisfied me.
There was no sense in eating more than I needed
or wanted just for thecsake of saving it, so at last
I gave up. There was coffee and milk; there were
such luxuries as oli.ves and pickles. Alas, here I
was, a healthy being, no longer hungry, but sur-
rounded with food.
*Much food was left on the plates. Many knew
when they had had enough. Others bravely clear-
ed up the plate, but just as a cross country run-
ner who has started too fast comes in lagging at
the end of the race, so did these men finish their
plate. As I said before, much was wasted.
Then came the desert. Here is what was
brought out: a large helping of ice cream, sprink-
led with almonds and cherries, and perched on
top of the cream like a dunce cap was an ice
cream cone! What a treat for the frosh that was!
To me there was a strange feeling that somehow

those cones brought in at the climax of an ex-
pensive dinner were the symbol of something -
the symbol of a real dunce cap worn by real
dunces in real life.
Here are freshmen in college. Few of them are
wealthy. They all 'want friendship. Some of them
want to join a college fraternity. The purpose of
a fraternity theoretically is to promote friendship
and comradeship among fellows of like interests
A fraternity should be the home of a group of
congenial men.
Here are the members. They are not, in gen-
eral, rich. They, want to keep their organization
alive; but they cannot afford a wasteful standard
of living. Yet in order to get men they drag the
frosh into theirnden, feed them twice as much as
they need, give 'em sales talk and turn 'em loose.
What artificallity; how crude it is!
Can they be - the upper classmen as well as the
frosh - so blind as to believe as that friendships
are cemented by feasts and hot air? Can it be
that they all forget the price that someone must
pay for such feasts? Two elderly women cooks
each worked about two hours not counting their
time taken for eating. Tables had to be set, food
served and removed, dishes and pans washed. This
cost does not include the cost of the twenty-odd
distinct and separate grocery items eaten or
thrown away - the lettuce wasted, the cones dis-
carded. Everything has a price, but does no one
realize it?
Was it worth its cost? I do not know. Is this
method of rushing a sensible way to attract
friendship, or is it a way of developing that
thoughtful considerattion for the rights of others
arnd thait recow'nition of social responsibility which

Hopwood Poetry
Annenaire Persov's
IN THE FIRST of the sonnets on Harriet Shelly
Miss Persov recalls the character of Shelley's
first wife; her jealousy and pride at being forgot-
ten and shoved aside for the brilliant and attrac-
tive Mary Godwin. iker anger and self-pity grad-
ually are overcome by the stronger desire to re-
gain Shelly's love for herself. The sonnet ends by
establishing a reconciliation which, however, we
immediately feel is unfortunately only temporary.
In the second sonnet, Harriet's loneliness and de-
spair drive her again into a final mood of des-
perate hope for Shelley's return. When she at last
realizes that all her hopes are futile, she tries to
accept her fate, but cannot throw off her mel-
ncholy; she drowns herself.
There is a learge measure of interest and en-
joyment in reading these companion poems for
their description of the successive moods which
led Harriet Shelly to her death, but there is even
a larger measure of appreciation possible if one
reads the poems for their wider application.
"Sometimes she lay
rehearsing all the thing she would say when
he returned."
"Sometimes she lay and listened the night
through for soft familiar steps - - - "
These lines present the universal experience of
clinging to a vain hope, an impossible realiza-
tion. The inevitable conclusion of hopeless wish-
ish - a state of sheer desperation- - is perfect-
ly expressed by the two beautifully simple lines.
"So hungering still for life, and hungering
still for her remembered love, she went away."
They recall Ophelia's "poison of deep grief." As
one recognizes the deeper significance of the two
sonnets, it is apropos to remind the reader of
Shelley's definition: "A poem is the very image of
life expressed in its eternal truth."
This definition applies even more completely to
"Whatever You Reap." The poem does not ad-
monish that "Whatsovever a man soweth, that
shall he reap." No, that is not the point.
"And if you reap barley,
you will sow barley,
you will grow barley,
Again and again."
No matter what admonition you may or you
may not follow, life, in its unchanging cycle, will
continue. This notion whether one interprets it
for oneself as a divine law, eternal monotony, or
eternal hope, is again, as in the first poem, an ex-
pression of eternal truth.
Comparisons may be what they are said to be;
but it will not hurt Persov's poem to quote six
lines from Shelley's "Hellas":
What Has Thought
To do with time, or place, or circumstance?
Wouldst thou behold the Future - ask and
y Knock and it shall be opened -look, and lo!
The coming age is shadowed on the Past
As on a glass."
Editor's Note - Whatever You Reap and Har-
riet Shelley were printed in this space in Sun-
day's issue of The Daily. Other poetry written
for the Hopwood contests will be presented each
Sunday, with reviews the following Tuesday.
Collegiate Observer
By Bud Bernard
At Fordham University it appears that the fac-
ulty are appointed by name. Father Deane is
dean, a Father Whalen acts as dean of discipline,
Mr. Shouten is in charge of debating and finally
a Mr. Voekal (pronounced vocal) is in charge of
the glee club.
Inasmuch as a great many marriages at the
University of Utah have resulted from the fact
that men and women study in proximity at the

library, the president of the University has ruled
that one-half of the library must be occupied by
men while the women confine themselves to the
other half.
According to reports the library, since the pass-
ing of this rule, has shown a decided decline in
the number of students studing there.
Because of their general discharge of all rules
and because of "their general attitude toward
upperclassmen," the freshman at Washington
College are deprived for the year of the privileges
of studing in the library from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and
of having any kind of date from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
University of Missouri officials have barred
one =instructor and 90 students from classes
until they paid for past meals at the Uni-
versity hospital.
While grading papers from a history examina-
tion, a professor at Oklahoma University came
across one on which there was no name. He
checked the paper very carefully and gave it the
grade ,of B. While he was putting the grades in
his role book he found out that there was one too
many papers. After a thinking session he remem-
bered that he himself had prepared one of the
papers. He declared to the class, "If any one here
makes an A on these papers he's a better man
than I am." Several in the class did.
