LTHOUGH certain features of the
A NRA tending toward price-fixing,
salary limitation, control of production and con-
sumption; and sundry economic regulation may
be laudable, the more volatile members of the
recovery administration must bear in mind that
the press can not be lumped with other indus-
tries and professions where the control or licens-
ing problem is considered.

Miss Perkins will be congratulated by the press
for her abrupt warning to NRA deputies to re-
frain entirely from attempting to influence edi-
torial opinion in any way that could be con-
strued as coercive. General Johnson is more or
less on the other side of the fence.
It was he who fired a New Yorc business news-
paper correspondent from his (Johnson's) press
conferences for alleged sabotage of an NRA move.
The bluff general had better watch his step.
On more than one occasion his hasty actions
have struck back at him. Witness his free NRA

lish. The advertising was not published. It was
a distinct rebuff to him. And there are many

Stravinsky made his music appeal to the senses
while the scenario and the ballet occupied the
intellect. It is interesting and difficult music,
Difficult, that is, to ears that are habituated
and receptive to the rich, warm, pleasant colors
of the last century, to the regular rhythms of
that age. Stravinsky is interested in something'
new. The work "has deliberate primitiveness,
an uncouthness of color and rhythm. It is done
in a manner never before attempted."
Stravinsky is reported as saying, "I want, not
to suggest situations or emotions, but to express,
to manifest them. . . . The one essential is to
feel, and to convey those feelings." And so, there
is the sense of fatalism in the music. "It is a
matter of making things act for themselves, of
killing sentiment, of destroying subjective emo-
tion. It has reduced man to nothing more than
an element of nature, controlled by a marvellous
power to grow, develop, and die, to fulfill a nat-
ural cycle over which man has no control, just
like a plant or rock." It is in recognition of this
power that primitives elevated in their rites. It
was in all nature, in young nature particularly.'
This power has been transmuted into music.
The vitality "the beginning of energy, the enor-
mous shaping of the visible and invisible world
through movement," is in the music of Stravin-
sky. It's there and is inescapable.
This is the first performance of "Le S'acre du
Printemps" in Ann Arbor.

AS ONE MAN SEES IT
How incomprehensible is woman! Far more
richly endowed than man by nature, she has
through countless generations enhanced her
charm and loveliness by artificial means. Rich
silks and satins, rare plumage of birds, sparkling
jewels, enchanting perfumes, the arts of the dress-
maker, the milliner, the hairdresser, and the cos-
metician all have been summoned to her aid. And
in this twentieth century, she thrusts a dead-
white, straight-line cigarette into her facial ensem-
ble of delicate colors and graceful curves. She
surrounds herself with a blurring haze of smoke
and the ugly fumes of burning tobacco. She stains
her fingers a dirty yellow with nicotine. She taints
her breath and saturates her clothing with the
hang-over stink of tobacco smoke.
"Hasn't woman as much right to smoke as
man?" As much right? How stupid! She has as
much right to wear a beard but she doesn't exercise
this right if she can help it unless she wants to
join a sideshow. It isn't a question of right. It's a
question of feminine loveliness. And modern
woman seems ready, even eager, to throw away
her finest achievehlents in this respect for the
sake of smoke. How incomprehensible is woman!
WASHINGTON, Oct. 20.- Analytical observers
profess to see a difference in viewpoint be-
tween some of the large professorial groups and
the outstanding executives of the government's
new recovery agencies which, they claim, accounts
for some of the internal bickering among the new
The executives who are not also cabinet mem-
bers - such as Johnson of NRA and Peek of the
Agricultural Adjustment Administration -han-
dle their jobs as emergency tasks. The theorists
look upon them as being accomplished steps in a
complete revolution in national economic life.
"Our job is to get the economic machine going
again," one of the executive group put it. "Time

manently in motion after we get it off the dead

of the recovery drive lies in what is being said

going or coming to inspect progress in the Tennes-
see basin is also talked of.
Another possibility is a visit to the home of An-
drew Jackson, "The Hermitage," near Nashville.
Mr. Roosevelt has repeatedly indicated in public
addresses afeeling of kinship to "Old Hickory."
Screen and literary fans are all more or less on
edge for the presentation here today and through
next Tuesday of Sinclair Lewis' "Ann Vickers,7
the smashing story of a woman of today. The
Majestic Theatre will show it.
Irene Dunne, winner of the title role, will have
opposite her Walter Huston and a galaxy of favor-
ites including Conrad Nagel, Bruce Cabot, Edna
May Oliver, Sam Hardy, and others.
Dealing with the life of a social worker who has
advanced ideas about the status of her sex, the
story carries Ann Vickers from her first affair with
a debonair army captain to high places in reform
work, to literary success, and public acclaim. The
happiness she ultimately finds comes dramatically
as her latest lover is sentenced to prison.
Huston is cast as the famous Judge Barney
Dolphin, man of the world, politician, family man,
lover -and then bribery convict.
An author who has focused the attention of the
world upon American literature as no other writer
has been able to do - this i3 Sinclair Lewis, whose
bones of contention include "Main Street," "Elmer
Gantry," "Babbitt," "Arrowsmith," "The Man
Who Knew Coolidge," and many others. Since
"Main Street" first created a furore in sedate lit-
erary circles, Lewis' novels have been best-sellers
both here and abroad. All have been translated
into a number of languages. The author's inter-
national popularity is further attested by the fact
that he is the only American writer who has ever
won the Nobel prize for literature.
Ann Vickers, the American girl who was brave
enough to live as her mind and heart dictated,
will probably prove to be as appealing as any of
Lewis' other heroes or heroines. It is to be hoped
that the RKO-Radio picturization is faithful to
the Lewis story. -G. M. W., Jr.

LA ROCQUE POINT, LAKE ARROWHEAD,
Cal. - Going "on location" with movie-mak-
ing company is monotonous, boresome business.
Six young ladies who are making their first cam-
era appearances will testify to that. They antic-
ipated much, much more excitement.
The English version of the German film, "Eight
Girls in a Boat," is being filmed on Rod La
Rocque's property, a secluded, attractive mountain
retreat where, it would seem, anyone would be
content for as long as he could stay here.
But making movies is different. Members of the
cast must at all times be within call of the assist-
ant director, who in this instance is Marshall
Duffield, ex-footballer and Dorothy Lee's new
husband. The girls, 40 in addition to those in the
title roles, yawn, stretch, walk, sit and yawn some
One estimated that out of 10 hours spent each
day on the set, actual work amounted to only 20
minutes. The rest of the time they killed time.
Some read, a few sewed, hardier ones swam in the
chilly, mile-high lake.
And, after three weeks of mostly waiting, six of
the title role girls decided they didn't care wheth-
er they had a movie career or not.
All the girls said they'd stay in Hollywood gladly
enough if their contracts were renewed, and one
Adele Pearce of San Francisco declared she was
determined to be in the movies, contract or not,
monotony or excitement.
The contest winners who will go home if their
options are not taken up are: Eleanor Lovegren,
Boston; Mildred Hollis, New York; Betty Grey,
Washington, D.C.; Mary Lou Fisher, Detroit;
Vivian Ward, San Diego, Cal., and Louise Lynn,
Palm Springs, Cal.
If you were to visit this location, you'd perhaps
wonder why so many people were necessary. The
company numbered 130 and it included camera-
men, electricians, boatmen, a life guard, a forest
ranger, property men, assorted assistants and 12
Yes, chaperones were required. Each had five
or six girls to look after. Their principal tasks

in Their Gardens
1. It is an organic material that contributes to the humus content
of the soil.
2. It is clean, odorless and pleasant to work with.
3. It is economical to use. One bale will spread approximately
three hundred square feet, one inch deep.
4. It is a good winter mulch, as it will insulate the soil against
frequent freezing and thawing effects which tend to damage
the perennial plants by breaking the roots.
