The CWA Helps
Needy Students...
T HAS often been said lately that
at last we are feeling the effects of
the NRA as individuals. Now we are also feeling
the' individual effects of another phase of the re-
covery program, the Civil Works Administration,
but they reach us from another angle. The NRA
usually calls for sacrifices - the CWA is supply-
ing jobs right at our own front door.
Two University projects have already begun
through funds granted by the CWA. One, the ex-
tending of the University light and power facili-
ties the athletic plant in and about the Intramural
Building, and the other, the extension of the heat-
ing tunnels to the University Elementary school
and Architectural Building. Both are projects
that, when completed, will be of great value to the
But, of paramount importance, it is possible
for students to obtain work on these improve-
ments, and this alone would justify the granting
of the funds and allow us to say that the CWA is
doing a Worthy thing. Students now have an op-
portunity 'to lift from their own shoulders some
of the financial burden that they may be carry-
ing. It is a chance that is being thankfully re-
ceived by those in need.
it is also expected that there will be other work
of a research type that students will be eligible
for, and this furthers the praise due to such a
system. There can scarcely be any more worthy
cause than helping those who are striving to se-
cure an education,

To the Editor: -
I have been following the growth of the Art
Cinema League with a good deal of interest and
I believe I am as desirous of its success as anyone.
There are certain things, however, that the League
should be reminded of if it is to develop into an
institution on this campus on equal footing with
the Choral Union and the Oratorical Association.
The showing of "Zoo In Budapest" is the reason
why I am writing this letter.
As I understand it, The Art Cinema League was
organized to demonstrate to students and towns-
people that the cinema, in its better and more
intelligent aspects, is as powerful a means of ex-
pression as any other of the accepted arts. It is
a unique medium in that it uses as completely as
none of the other arts a certain dynamic mental
and physical pictorialism, principles of movement
and intensities of light that are its fundamental
In this respect, The Art Cinema League has
more or less succeeded in bringing to the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre films that exemplify at-
tempts to reach the cinematic ideal.
In addition, another of its prime purposes was,
I have been led to believe, to confine itself to
bringing here films that would ordinarily not be
shown at the regular commercial theatres. In this
way the two would mutually benefit each other.
The commercialized theatres would show the best,
along with the worst, available of the American
product and the Art Cinema League would com-
plete our education by exhibiting the best of the
foreign product. In this way the public would
get a well rounded view of what is being accom-
plished in the cinema the world over. The Art
Cinema League would also help the commercial
theatres financially by arousing a geunine appre-
ciation on the part of the public of the better
type of pictures presented there. And losses on
such pictures like the "Power and the Glory"'
would not reaccur.-
Such a relationship seems to me the most
healthy one there could exist. If, however, the
League invades the domain of the commercial the-
atre, this relationship becomes strained. There
was no reason why "Zoo In Budapest" should
have been shown. It had already been in Ann Ar-
bor three times before and, although no one will
deny its fine artistic qualities, one must admit
many happier choices could have been made.. The
limited number of shows the League plans to run
this school year should have guided its officials to
choose one of the many fine foreign films cir-
culating in the United States and looking eagerly
for a sympathetic exhibition. For example films
of the class which include F.P.1; The Island Of
Doom; The Patriot; Poil De Carotte; July 14; etc.
This would have been much more desirable than
wasting a precious date with a fourth run.
I hope this is taken in the right spirit by the
Art Cinema League and that the next film they
present is a foreign. It is only by a consistent
policy and a clear objective that they will prosper.

Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women"' has been
made into an excellent movie, one which will
certainly remain for some time in the minds of
those attending as a classic of the screen. And
in those same minds will remain KatherirIb Hep-
burn's interpretation of Jo March along with
such impressive characterizations as Lionel Barry-
more's Rasputin, Douglas Fairbanks' Robin Hood,
and George Arliss' Disraeli . . . all favorites; all
head and shoulders above thousands of other
character interpretations.
When Director Cukor began this screen version]
he must have realized that only a master's touch,
technique, and foresight could make the 65-year
old "Little Women" live up to the standard set
to that semi-classic by author Alcott. The four
little March girls live together, and then, as in
every family of the like, with age come other
things and the gradual transition is painted and
their separation from their former state com-
pleted. Director Cukor deserves praise for mak-
ing, in the time of a movie, this quality slow,
careful and smooth.
Jo, Amy, Beth, and Meg make the home of the
Marches a cheerful place and in doing so create
a family group as true and real as could be ex-
pected, in a picture or a play. Little things, not
common to the average character presentation,
add to the lovable effect one feels toward them
and makes the triumph complete.
You should enjoy Jo's manner and doings (be-
cause of Katharine Hepburn's vitality); Uncle
Lawrence's change to a human (done by Henry
Stephenson); the professor's proposal under an
umbrella; the play presented by the four Marches;
Amy's fainting in preparation for the big scene
in the play; Jo's tomboyish antics in the first
scenes; the peeking through the stair-rail of Amy
and Beth; and then in contrast you can't help
being moved, deeply, by the love and sentimental
veins that run through the theme with telling
sincerity and, perhaps, a tearful result.
On leaving the theatre one might hear: "Was
that a swell movie?", "I wish the audience would
be more appreciative of such sincere acting!", and
then a little girl was heard saying, "Gosh, I
wish't I were like Jo . " but Jo says, "Well,
welcome home, Professor!"

In dry cleaning it takes microscopic examination to real-

Microcleaning process has been tested under the micro-
scope, proving that it not only removes spots, perspira-

oils to collect dust and dirt as soon as worn.
Have your clothes Microcleaned. They'll stay clean
longer and wear longer no matter how often you have
them cleaned because Microcleaning contains no harsh
chemicals to tender the fabrics.

To the Editor: -
In a recent campus opinion one "Friend of
Sanity" writes "Visitors to Germany assure us
that the stories of mob violence against the non-
Nazis and the Jews have been greatly over-ex-
aggerated and that the German people do indorse
It is interesting to see what a competent ob-
server, Dr. Alice Hamilton, professor at Harvard,
has to say about this. In the September issue
of "Graphic Survey," Dr. Hamilton writes: "It
is true that an intelligent tourist can spend some
time in Germany and come back to report that all
is well in Berlin and Dresden; the streets are
orderly, the discipline of the young Nazis is per-
fect, the tales of Jewish atrocities were absurdly
exaggerated and now no Jew is ever molested;
they are carrying on their business as usual, the
whole country is back of Hitler . . . he is after
all a fine fellow and just what Germany needed.
That is the impression most tourists will bring
back this summer but it is largely false . . . To
know what is happening in Germany today you
must go to friends of old who know and trust
you ...
"People are arrested constantly for the most
trivial things . . . the country is full of spies -
hotel waiters, hotel guests, one's own servants
. Therefore the tourists who cannot get below
the surface, who have no intimate connections in
Germany, cannot know the truth If anyone
hopes that there will be a change for the better,
let him read Hitler's Book, 'Mein Kampf', and he
will be convinced that so long as Hitler rules Ger-
many there can be no hope for the German Jews."
Mr. Mowrer - a graduate of Michigan, presi-
dent of the Foreign Press Association In Germany,
has lived there for ten years. That his opserva-
tions are competent and his journalism impecca-
ble are attested by the fact that they won for
Mr. Mowrer the Pulitzer award in Journalism.
His book, "Germany Sets the Clock Back," leaves
little doubt what the Nazis have done.

The Messiah is a_"Christmas tradition on the
campusa Every year .it is presented by the Uni-
versity Musical Society, with soloists prominent
in the vicinity, with Choral Union, and with the
University Symphony ,Orchestra. . The perform-
ance will begin at 3:30 today in ;order that the
first two parts can be finished in time for the list-
eners to wend their way' homewards, with halle-
lujahs in their hearts, to tea.
That this is an annual affair is attested to by
the appearance of soloists who have done their
roles before at Hill Auditorium. Arthur Hackett
has sung the tenor of the Messiah, not only here
in Ann Arbor, but in other parts of the country.
His sympathetic interpretation is usually one of
the sure things of the performance. Carl Lindgren
of the Michigan State Normal College will sing the
bass, which he did two years ago. Helen McClaflin
of Kent College, in Ohio, who sang the contralto
last year, will be back again. Thelma Von Eisen-
hauer will sing the soprano role. Palmer Christian
will assist with the organ part. Choral Union
and the University Symphony Orchestra will play
an important part in the performance, which is
under the direction of Dr. Earl V. Moore.
The Messiah is the one work of Handel which
is done over and over. It apparently never loses
its appeal; Dr. Charles Burney wrote in his life
of Handel, in the comments on the Commemora-
tion Festival, "from that time (the second per-
formance of the Messiah) in London to the pres-
ent this great work has been heard in all parts
of the kingdom with increasing reverence and de-
light: it has fed the hungry, clothed the naked,
fostered the orphan, and enriched the succeeding
managers of Oratorio more than any single
musical production in this or any country." And
from that time to this the Messiah has done the
same thing. The managers of the Oratorio this
afternoon, of course are enriching the audience
rather than themselves for the performance is
done gratis. Every year in Hill Auditorium it
goes on before a full house.
Cle-giate Obsrver
Roger Babson's Institute at Wellsley, Massachu-
setts has a course in job hunting for unemployed
men, with a guarantee that tuition will be re-
funded if, on completion of the course, the student
fails to find work.
At Illinois State Normal University, when
half a dozen fellows visit the girls' dormitory,
the girls anxious for dates drop their names
into a punch bowl. The fellows draw the
names and the evening is started.

Honor Our Varsity
At The Smoker...

T UESDAY evening the annual Foot-
ball Smoker will be held at the
Union. Members of the team, coaches, cheerlead-
ers, and others who hadsome part in the past
football sea:son w*,ill be guests of the eventing. They
will come to the Union with the expectation of
finding there all those who have derived satis-
faction and pride from the fact that their Uni-
versity's football team has just completed the es-
tablishment of a modern football record - four
Big Ten championships in succession - and for
the second successive year, has been awarded the
Dickinson National Championship rating.
How do you feel about that? Is it merely the
event of another day in your years here in school
or is it something which arouses in you a feeling
of pride in Michigan's team and coaches? We hope
