** RED-HAIRED VITALITY
IN DISTINCTIVE MOVIE
Eva Lovelace ....... .Katharine Hepburn

Louis Easton ........... Adolphe Menjou
Rita Vernon ..............Mary Duncan
Hedges.................C. Aubrey Smith
Gigolo ...................Don Alvarado
Henry Lawrence .......... Richard Carle
Charles Van Dusen......... Tyler Brooke
It can be said without much fear of contra-
diction that until the present the secret of Kath-
arine Hepburn's cinematic appeal and her quick
jump to stardom has been her physical resem-
blance to the most widely known feminine movie
star of the era, Greta Garbo. But in "Morning
;Glory" it is evident that for once the producers'
boasts of "the new Hepburn" and the "flaming
new vitality" have materialized, for it may be
immediately seen that Miss Hepburn's attack is on
a new line, at least for this picture.
As Eva Lovelace, a small-town Little Theatre
and Presbyterian Church "star" who comes to
New York to out-do Sarah Bernhardt and Ethel
Barrymore, she assumes a laetificant personality
which should capture the most hardened movie-
goer. She is unpolished, unconstrained, breath-
less, yet poised with an odd sophisticatedness
which compares f vorably with Adolphe Men-
jou's carpet-knight portrayal of producer Easton
and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. as playwright Sheri-
dan. Heartbroken and stranded with a 10-cent
vaudeville troupe, she finally gains her big chance
when blonde Rita Vernon backs out of the lead
role in a Molnar translation at the crucial mo-
ment. The fear that she will prove to be a
morning glory - a flower that fades into ob-
scurity after early blooming - forms a fitting
climax to a uniformly well-executed production.
The dapper Menjou is like Shakespeare's "glass
of fashion and mould of form." Fairbanks, Jr.,
is a fine subordinate (as he was intended to be)
to the greater talents of Miss Hepburn. C. Au-
brey Smith as the veteran actor who befriends
Eva in the lonely first days of her assault on
New York has one of his best roles.
Refreshingly different scene: That in which
Eva sits on the arm of Easton's chair, sweetly
saying "Hello" and getting the same reply. And
Added attractions: "Mother's Helper," NRA
propaganda short with ZaSu Pitts and El Bren-
del; Paramount News; Walt Disney' Silly Sym-
phony in color, "Old King Cole" - below the high
standard set by the three piglets' success and
the tale of Santa Claus.
Jointly with Mr. Larry King of the Spotlight
column this column wishes to put its oar into
the high class burlesque swim. Mr. Marcus, the
proprietor of the road show which is due here
next Thursday at midnight, tells in his publicity
of the "statuesque odalisques, ravishing demois-
elles, voluptuous houris, and delectable rosebuds"
which may be seen for 83 cents or $1.10, as you

sial Hyperions, no thuriferous hoydens, no nec-
tareous nymphs, no jaunty baggages, no rhododen-
drons fait a peindre, nor ye any resplendent
asphodels?? Not even an aesthetic Hebe?
And that for you and your words, Mr. Marcus.

In The October FORUM-
By 'Robert Hillyer
Professor Hillyer's plea in this article is that
more attention be payed to teacher personality.
The theme is a little stale, but surely sound; and
might be expected to yield a fair discussion.
The author, however, goes further than mere
straightline argument for his proposition, and
declares that we must choose between personality
and subject matter. Through his article the terms
are used antithetically, and would lead to the
conclusion that where you have one you cannot
have the other. .
What is personality? Roughly defined, it is the
sum of a person's characteristics, and surely
knowledge that he has spent a good part of his
life acquiring must be prominent among them.
Personality, in other words, includes knowledge
of a subject, and cannot be contrasted to it. Think
of Professor Reeves, or Waterman, or Slosson, or
Winter, or any other of the outstanding profes-
sorial personalities on this campus. Can they be
imagined apart from their subjects? What is Dean
Novy if he is not a doctor and a teacher? Per-
sonality and subject are inseparably intermingled,
and to plead for one at the expense of the other
is, to me at least, incomprehensible. Viewed in an-
other light it may be said that personality is
valuable where pedagogy is concerned according
to its efficacity in the teaching of a subject.
Therefore to destroy the subject, as Professor
Hillyer would do, is also to destroy the raison
d'etre of the personality, and not, as he says, to
PROFESSOR HILLYER puts something like the
sane thought into different words further
on, by contrasting "scholarship" and "education."
The differences he understands to exist between
the two are that the first "ought to be in posses-
sion of those few to whom it pertains,' while the
second "must be as widely disemminated as pos-
sible." As an example of the educated man, the

PLAN for evading the auto ban. Get a commer-
cial license on your car, a chauffeur's license.
and a taxicab permit. Then see Dean Rea and get
a permit to drive a taxi to earn your way through
school. Then get two cards to put in the window
of the car saying "Flat Rate Taxi." Now you're
ready. Get a date, put the cards in the windows of
the car, get the girl and put her in the back seat,
drive to where you're going and let her out, park
the car, whip the cards out of the window, take
off the chauffeur's cap, put on a hat, and join the
young lady. Going home merely reverse the pro-
cess. If this doesn't work let us know and we'll
think up another.
From the advertisement of the big-time
burlesque to come here soon, "A garden of
girlhood, lavish with a myriad of delectable
rosebuds bursting into full bloom beneath the
potent effulgence of the sovereign stars of the
amusement firmament." I beg your stuff,

THAT very well-dressed fellow at the Psi U
house had a few dates with one of Ann Arbor's
most attractive freshman co-eds. Said he on his
third date, "I hope that some day you will learn
to care for me as I care for you, because I be-
lieve that the love of a good woman would re-
form me." Oh, you big, bad boy!
One of our spies who works at the Union
reports that during Orientation Week a
freshman woman came up to the main desk
with a pot in her hand and said, "How long
do I have to wear this thing after school
starts." He swears it's true.

BILL CAVANAUGH at the T.D.X. house bought
a set of books on the installment plan. When
the collector came, Bill met him at the door. "Is
Mr. Cavanaugh in?" asked the man. "No," said
Mr. Cavanaugh, "I don't think he is, but I'll see."
"Cavanaugh!" bellowed Cavanaugh. "Cavanaugh!"
bawled Cavanaugh, and, while the bewildered
brothers looked on, Mr. Cavanaugh went to the
door and said, "Mr. Cavanaugh doesn't seem to
be around but I'll have him call you when he
gets in." And the collector went away.

Republicanism is not dead but sleeping on
this campus. During the recent drive to have
students sign NRA pledge cards the cam-
paigners reported that their importunations
were often met with the remark, "Why, no,
I can't sign that, I'm a Republican."'
Two Turkish high officials arrived in New York
on a large trans-Atlantic liner en route to the
Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago. Leav-
ing the boat they got into a taxi at the pier and!
one of them asked, "You know the Exposition?"
"Yes," said the driver, "It's in Chicago," "Well ,"

wrist, "Take us there." The caboy guiped, went
home, collected a clean shirt and the Turkish
gentlemen went to Chicago, arriving there with a
taxi bill of $300.
of fields in which the undergraduate of today, is
expected to be familiar! It is difficult to see any
consistency in the author's attitude toward the
From this Professor Hillyer launches into an
attack on the Ph.D. system. Using new words he
repeats what he has already said: education, not
scholarship, is the thing; and since Ph.D. prep-
aration results in a cesspool of scholarship it
should be done away with. Here my feelings run
definitely counter to the eninent professor's. For
whenever I see a mere two orthree years of study
crowned with the highest degree in academics I
feel the apprenticeship should have been more
rigorous. Perhaps my ideal is too high, but I at
least have the satisfaction of knowing many peo-
ple share it.
THE NEXT phase of Professor Hillyer's quarrel
is levelled at the red tape; the requirements
of so many hours of B in this and of C in that
for admission to different colleges, departments,
and colleges; and at the army of deans, secre-
taries, committees, and sub-committees that have
sprung up. Professor Hillyer, it might be remarked
in passing, is amusing here, without knowing it:
he seems to believe that he stands alone in his
adversion to these cumbersome formalities.
How pleasing it is, he says, to contemplate the
quiet and peace, and especially the freedom from
such red tape, of the Yale of the 1850's. To drive
home his point he quotes a letter written by an
1850 Yale student-and we find that there were
then an enormous total of some 500 young men
in attendance. Cut down Harvard., or Yale, or
Michigan, or any of the others, to 500, and what
would happen to the waiting lime in the Regis-
trar's offices? With so meager an enrollment of
students, the necessity for detailed blank-signing
would largely pass, and with it most of the ac-
companying enforcement personnel. What Profes-
sor Hillyer overlooks is that new methods, ones
which necessarily involve red tape, have had to be
devised to take care of the enormous increase in
the number of those who seek education. And
he cannot consistently object that there are too
many students, because he has earlier pleaded
for a dissemination of education that shall be
wide as possible.
PROFESSOR HILLYER concludes with the de-
scription of what he would consider an ideal
college. Again he is inconsistent, for the faculty
of his school, by attracting to it the twenty gentle-
men "who dominate the various fields of culture,"
would remove them from their present stations

ITTING over their glasses of beer
in those wigwams situated in every
New York assembly district, Tammany Hall braves
--from the leader down to the newest woman
captain-are these days thinking deep, strong1
silent thoughts of woe. For the tiger is backed intoI
a corner, and the forces of righteousness, indig-
nation, and restlessness are advancing with more
hope than they have shown in the post-war era,
holding aloft a somewhat tarnished and musty
sword named civic virtue. The sword strikes the
tiger's eyes, and he doesn't like it; he has a feel-
ing, too, that it may strike him between those
eyes, and that he likes even less.
Not until the recent primary was Tammany
really worried. It seemed to John Curry and his
fellow sachems that cost of the tiger criticism
came from those sections of public opinion which
have always been anti-Tammany: from the press,
from Wall Street, from the liberal intellectuals,
from all those groups, in short, which make a
good deal of noise up to, but not including, the
election day ballotting. This criticism never wor-
ries Tammany. Let the critics rant; as long as the
Coney Islanders vote in the proper manner, God's
in his heaven, a Tammanyite's in city hall, and
the tiger's in the money!
But this time the Coney Islanders appear to be
really mad. They nominated the Tammany can-
didate for mayor, John P. O'Brien, as good demo-
crats should, but they ousted .the tiger comptroller
suggestion, substituting an independent democrat
instead. It was the first time since the war that
a Tammany endorsed candidate has not received
the democratic nomination. Further, their sup-
port for O'Brien was perfunctory rather than
enthusiastic. When to this deflection within the
tiger ranks is added the absence of support from
Washington, a revitalized republican party which
has discarded its former leader (who delighted in
nothing so much as giving Tammany the least
possible opposition), a tough, hard campaigner
in the person of Fidello LaGuardia on the fusion
ticket, and the important presence of Samuel
Seabury, independent democrat, supporting this
candidate-when these facts are added to the
result of the recent voting, it becomes clear that
the tiger is faced with a genuine fight.
This Tammany battle to remain in power is of
national significance because Tammany has be-
come a symbol of professional political control
of American cities. It may well be that other
machines are as crooked as Tammany. Certainly
the Vare republican machine in Philadelphia,
which is also experiencing uncomfortable days,
rivals the tiger in corruption. But popular feeling
has assigned "the hall" to the front rank of politi-
cal infamy. Beat "the hall," the reformers argue,
and you beat the wickedest politicos on the Amer-
