Three Accomplishments Of
Undergraduate Council . ..
toward the Grand Old Party. The issues were
much of a local nature and the very label of
Fusion indicated that the LaGuardia backing was
not strictly Republican. The administration did,
undoubtedly, suffer a little in prestige because of
its affiliation in the popular mind with the McKee
cause. However, La Gaurdia is even less of a regu-
lar Republican than the Progressives in the Senate.
Another machine, the Mellon-Republican one,
crumbled in Pittsburgh, where national issues
were thrown more directly into the campaign
than in New York. But it was essentially a victory
of reform over machine politics and is important
nationally only in that it was possible for a Demo-
crat to win in Republican Pennsylvania and that
it balanced whatever loss there had been for the
administration in New York.
The repeal victory was not as whole-hearted
as expected. The drys uncovered some last-minute
strength in the Carolinas. A real dry stronghold
was uncovered in North Carolina. This was dis-
appointing to the wets who had hoped to make
a clean sweep but it did not stop the onrush of
the repeal movement, for the Uthah decision
brought the whole issue to an end.
Republicans are pointing to their victory in the
by-election to choose a member of the state house
of representatives as significant of a return to
Republicanism in Michigan.
Bad weather helped to keep the silk-stocking
vote at home in Detroit and aided the jobless in
their support of the subway and port projects.
Detroit has needed rapid transit system for some
time. The conservative-Republican Detroit Free
Press was handed another crushing defeat with
the approval of the projects. Its "war on waste"
didn't appeal 'to the Detroit masses. The victory
of Frank Couzens for mayor was anticipated.
The vote Tuesday was not a protest vote alone.
The electorates showed that they could not be
bullied. They did an admirable job of picking the
good wheat out of the chaff. There was no blind
voting "down with everything."
Four stars means extraordinary; three stars definitely
recommended; two stars, average; one star, inferior;
no stars, stay away from it.

in literature, psychology, aesthetics, etc., but all
left me feeling an unconquerable weakness of
personality and morale. But one day -I think I
felt as Keats' "watcher of the skies" must have
felt, "when a new planet swims into his ken"-
one day I noticed that ail the really popular girls,
the social successes, the notables, so to speak, wore
lipstick. I headed for the nearest drug-store.
They carry it, I have learned since, in tangerine,
apricot, vivid, vermilion, watermellon, persimmon
- a shade for every mood and taste. I laid in a
supply, and life has been different for me since.
Now when I go down the Diagonal, if I have a
headache, or if I lack confidence to enter the class-
room without having prepared my lesson, I be-
think me of my rouged lips; "It cannot be that
anyone has a brighter lipstick than I," I say to
myself, and straightway my morale is restored.
I concentrate on the thought- Coue-like, "I have
a brilliant lipstick!" and I go sailing 'through the
Girls, a long and disappointing experience in
this University has convinced me that we cannot
expect much help in the personality problem from
our professors. You will actually sit through an
entire course under such highly-touted teachers
as O. J. Campbell and Preston Slosson and S. A.
Courtis, and even DeWitt H. Parker, and not get
a word of help on rouging. How do they think
we are to acquire personality, anyway? They
teach us to understand Plato, and Newton, and
Croce, the subjects of prosody, and thermody-
namics, and ballistics; but not one definite word
on the use of lipstick! Dr. Parker's courses in
aesthetics treat of the concepts and history of
theories of music, architecture, sculpture, etc.,
and painting, -but painting what? There! You
see? Teaching in terms of generalities! Why
does he not apply his principles definitely to the
art of make-up?
In view of this neglect on the part of our in-
structors, it seems to me that we must find help
in other ways. I, for one, want suggestions from
the rest of you girls on how you have solved diffi-
culties in building beautiful personalities through
the use of lipstick. Write in to The Daily.-

versity for, if not to aid us in just such problems?

CH0RAL UNION SERIES
AT last the University has achieved]
a student government body that,
instead of being merely a political plum, efficiently
discharges the functions allotted to it.
To Gilbert E. Bursley and the new Under-
graduate Council of which he is president belongs
much of the credit for the "new deal." Yesterday
the last class elections in a series that lasted
four weeks were held. Nearly 40 classes in all
chose their officers under the supervision of the'
council, and after it was all over they were unani-
mous in their approval of the efficient manner
in which the elections had been conducted.
There were no delays, no failures on the part
of the council to complete them according to
schedule, and, best of all, there were no cries of
mismanagement. It is an outstanding tribute
to the new body that all these elections were
held without a complaint.
By the council's limiting of the number of
committees in each class and the number of
members on each of these they have completed
another forward step. With this move campus
politics were pulled back from the low level to
which they had fallen. Appointment to a class
committee now means something - the appointee'
is rewarded for his loyalty to the party with a
position that is not given to nearly everyone
who voted in the election. It is reaching the
status which was intended for it.- that of an
honor for the few.
The third notable success of the council is in
the field of student discipline. In co-operation
with the disciplinary committee they have been
prompt to take action in cases meriting it, and
their recommendations have been received; as
just by all interested.
Numerous other plans are being made by the
council, to be announced from time to time. We
feel justified in asking that the student body
give its entire support to this body. For student
self-government will grow according to the merit
and popularity of its council.
The clever characterization of the Rimplegar
family in "Three Cornered Moon," makes this
picture highly entertaining because there is, un-
doubtedly, the same sort of carrying on in your
own family at times. It hits you in the right spot.
The touches of realism in the home scenes in
this picture are worthy of praise. The morning
scene in a household in which the family is a
little nutty anyway, involves telephone calls,
moody people, and humor that is done well by
Director Elliott Nugent. The character of Nellie
Rimplegar, mother of the family is outstanding,
and is done with the unique Mary Boland touch.
Then Wallace Ford, Claudette Colbert, Tom Brown
and William Blakewell give interpretations of their
parts that are first rate. The campus lawyers will
be able to appreciate Ford's enthusiasum when he
passes his state bar examinations and throughout
the picture there are bursts of character from all 1
the Rimplegar family that lable them the "crazy
Soon the Rimplegars are thrown into despair as
Mrs. Rimplegar is notified that her margin, bank
role, and credit is exhausted because of the fact
that one day she, to surprise her chidren, pur-
chased $50,000 worth of "Three Cornered Moon."
Nobody can get work at first except Elizabeth,
but then Ed and Douglas come through only to
have Elizabeth lose her job. Everything is left up
to the young author, Ronald who is of the artis-
tic type and crazier than all the rest of the Rim-
plegars put together, and he falls flat. Dr.
Stevens, the family doctor, has the chance to
settle the question and like all good doctors he
provides the medicine, that cures the family of its
financial and social problems.
You will like Mary Boland's kimono before and
after the crash; Lydia Roberti's English; Joan
Marsh's figure; Hardie Albright's artist type; the
Rimplegars' reactions; and again the light touch
that is bound to put you in good humor.
The supporting program is not worthy of the
same praise. There are two NRA "emphatics"
and a Communtiy Fund request, plus the same
news reel that was presented Sunday, and a Bosko

TJrONIGHT Fritz Kreisler, master fiddler, is to
play his eighth concert in Hill Auditorium.
That an artist returns to the scene of his former
activities indicates his popularity and his prestige
among people who enjoy worthwhile music. Kreis
ler's reputation is famous, not only for his actual
violin-playing, but for his genuineness, his re-
sponsiveness, and his compatibility.
His program opens with the Grieg C-minor
Sonata, one of three written by the Norwegian
composer. This is known as the Tragic Sonata be-
cause of its heroic yet melancholy voice. It is the
least Norwegian of the three, although it main-
tains the feeling of the North, "with its indomit-
able strain of a race that has known neither serf
nor conqueror." In the commemoration concert
held in honor of the twenty-fifth anniversary of
Grieg's death, this is one of the works which was
featured before an audience including the Royal
Family and many other distinguished personages.
(Mrs. Charles E. Koella, wife of Prof. Koella of
the French department, has given me some in-
teresting anecdotes and personal reminiscences
about Grieg and Mme. Grieg, which cannot
be included here.)
The Bach Chaconne promises to be a high-light
of the concert because of its unique position as
the only chaconne for violin alone that Bach
wrote, and by virtue of its difficulty. It was
written in the eighteenth century when virtuosity 1
for virtuosity's sake was much admired. But even
this Chaconne surpassed the technique of the
musicians available at that time. "It was as
though Bach wrote it for an ideal violinist, one
whom he imagined to live, but probably it was
never given an adequate performance until
Joachim came along." It will most probably be
given an adequate performance this evening.
The third group is made up of the shorter,
melodious pieces which have become associated
with Kreisler. Two of them, in fact, are his own
This program has been slightly revised al-
though the main portions remain as in the orig-
inal announcement. The nicest thing about it is
that Kreisler is going to do it.

R various states and cities illustrate
many trends and one great trend, the revolt of the
people against the status quo.
