OF RUSSIAN OPERA
TONIGHT the 5-act opera, "Khovanschina" by
Moussergsky will conclude the series of three

Monday nights to large audiences.
The cast is made pup of fine Russian singers
who have made their reputations either here in
America or abroad. As for the other two operas,
costumes, scenery and stage-settings have been
designed by Russians. A conspicuous part of Rus-
sian opera is the ballet, which in this company is
headed by a seventeen-year-old prima-ballerina.
Eugene Plotnikoff is the conductor of the per-

To the Editor:
Friday the campus was asked to vote on Beer,
Auto Ban, Honor System, Residence, Compulsory
Physical Education, Women's Hours, Class Dances,
and Movie Prices.I
There is something tragic about the way the
war issue is lumped together with such things as
class dances, women's hours, etc. And the pain-
ful truth is that far too many students on this
campus put the war issue - in its seriousness,
and importance, and immediate bearing - in the
same category with such points as movie prices
and the Auto Ban.
In this respect Michigan is far behind such
places as Oxford, Harvard, Princeton, Columbia,
and scores of other universities where the serious-
ness and immanence of war at least gave to that
issue a special and separate ballot. At these places
enough of the student body rose from their
childish self centredness to the realization that
war was really an immediate obstacle to their
good welfare. And at some institutions they even
went further, and audibly, and with the ballot,
petitions, and mass meetings denounced war as
the creation of large industrialists and bankers.
How can one bring before the Michigan student
body the growing danger of war. How can one
convince them that their bluebooks, and their
grades, and their love affairs, and their careers,
which they worry about so much, are absolutely
meaningless in the face of this terrific threat of
war? How can one overcome the all-too-prev-
valent attitude: "If war comes, let it come.
Nothing we can do about it now." To quote the
alarming statistics of the day, to point out the
war horrors, and the economic roots of war seems
not to be enough. Somehow the students remains
cold to these appeals. Somehow, each individual
student feels that the war issue is a general
problem, but specifically it does .not touch him
as an individual; whereas tomorrow's bluebook
causes him no little anxiety.
Fellow students, readers of this column, I ap-
peal to you for concrete proposals for overcoming
this appalling indifference. Frankly, we must
admit that the various anti-war groups on this
campus are making no impression on the student
body. How best can we remedy this?
One, even slightly acquainted with the precip-
itate war menace, is tempted to shout, "Do some-
thing." But that would only draw a sophisticated
rejoinder from the student body. In the main we
must confess that the fight against war resolves
itself into the setting up of comparatively small
oganizations, which painfully, slowly, and with
day-to-day struggle must work to draw in larger
and larger numbers. There are thousands of such
organizations throughout the country. But admit-
tedly they are nought when the huge war prop-
aganda machine begins its steam rolling at the
outbreak of war. But that is all the greater rea-
son why the struggle against capitalist war must
be intensified today. The writer will be glad to
to furnish all those interested with abundant
statistics on the alarming presence of the war dan-
Fellow Students: I appeal to you, for our com-
mon good, to join up immediately with some anti-
war organization on the campus. There are many
such groups; the National Student League, the
Vanguard Club, The Socialist club, the Methodist
Group, the S. C. A. Whatever the differences of
of these groups, they at least can agree on one
thing - to fight NOW actively war and the
causes of war. The numerical strength of the
active members of these groups is still small. Only
by swelling their ranks can we do something
positive to prevent war, to remove its causes,
to make our struggle over examinations, our per-
sonal affairs, our future, really mean something.
What an inspiring example it would be to the rest
of the academic world if it were known that the
whole campus at the University of Michigan was
solidly behind a strong movement against war.

T ODAY the Women's Board of Rep-
resentatives will meet to decide
rhether or not to take action on the hour changes
vhich the co-eds have indicated they desire.
For the first time in its history the Board of
lepresentatives will be able to have before it,
vhen it sits down at the executive table, definite
aformation as to what co-eds want. Owing to dif-
erentiation in the voting'- between men and
iomen it was possible to determine co-ed senti-
aent as well as all-campus sentiment, and it is
low now a matter of history that the undergrad-
tate women of the University are in favor, by a
h'ee to one majority, of 1:30 permission on Sat-
trday night, and by a five to two majority, of
1:30 permission on Sunday night.
It has been interesting to watch the arguments
gainst the desired extensions as they have been
rought forward and, one by one, defeated. The
ast to go was the one which held that, if an extra
lour were granted Sunday night, Jerry Hoag,
nanager of the Michigan and Majestic theatres,
vould immediately lengthen his attractions, there-
y making it again impossible for a law-abiding
o-ed to see a late Sunday night show. Why he
hould wish to transform his theatres into stag
stablishments is a question which the propound-
rs of this argument overlooked or at least failed
Reason alone should be enough to destroy this
idiculous contention, but Mr. Hoag, to clinch the
natter, has issued a statement to the effect that
he will in no event lengthen his Sunday programs.
:n the same statement he also points out that his
supposed lengthening of the Sunday shows several
years ago, when 11 o'clock permission was granted,
.s pure fiction.

graduate Council has done its part, in the matter

To Meet The Team...
"Footlight Parade" is a production full of
humor, music, and clever situations. The musical
numbers, "Honeymoon Hotel," "Shanghai Lil,"
and "By A Waterfall," are introduced and pre-
sented under ar unusually original situation;
something that has never been done before is
given to a musical show audience at last.
James Cagney, pugnacious man and actor, ex-
hibits his versatility in this production with his
voice and a nack for tap-dancing that is just as
good as those people who make a profession at!
such. His role is that of a man in charge of
thinking up units, or stage productions, to be run
as "preview-preludes" to talking pictures. Allj
sorts of concoctions (such as, a black cat number,
a voo-doo selection, or a slave-girl presentation)j
are thought of until the final inspiration comes,
out of which the three main songs are sprung.
Each song is run at a different theatre at one
hour intervals, so it is necessary to change from
one theatre to another between these via the bus,
in which the girls change from one costume to
another. This is all done to please a big shot in
charge of a large group of theatres throughout
the country and to secure his contract. Done.
The best of the three selections is -"Beside
A Waterfall." In this there are a vast number
of changes from one scene to another and an
equal amount of chorus formation; all done in the
water. The photography aided in putting this
over by its interesting slants and shots taken
from above, below, to the side, and the front
with a change of the scenery at the same time
(before your very eyes!). The humor was packed
into the "Honeymoon Hotel" and you will enjo3
the part played by the little boy (the same one
who played in "Golddiggers of 1933") in finishing
off the humor. Then came a bit of propaganda,
just ashin "Golddiggers of 1933," with a display
of Roosevelt and the NRA in the "Shanghai Lil'
(it seems to be the thing to do, I guess). But

Designed as a training medium for a new kind
of politician whose creed will be intelligent public
leadership, a new course in classical humanities
has been instituted at the University of Wiscon-
sin. Twelve students have registered.
At last a little light on the age old ques-
tion: We learn from the University of Dela-
ware that you can trust any girl who admits
she likes onions.
A scientifically minded Winnipeg student, while
attending a lecture, was desirous of noting the,
effect of fire upon brilliantine and promptly ap-
plied a lighted mnatch to his neighbor's head with
a flashing result. In an interview the victim of the
experiment remarked in crisp tones, "Well, I
should should worry I saved two bits, the price of
a singe." The miscreant announced ardently, "It
was in the interests of science. I would do it again
if I had to."
