IMPnortant Meeting For
Fraternities, Sororities ...
F RATERNITY men will have a
chance to unite and save perhaps
$2 per month per man on their board bills if they
will give sympathetic hearing to the words of'
Rolf E. Darbo, fraternity co-operative buyer from'
the University of Wisconsin, who will tell of the
new organization the Fraternity Buyers Co-op-'
erative, which is being organized here.
The benefits of the new plan will not be limited
to fraternities which are members of the Inter-.
fraternity Council, which is sponsoring the or-
ganization. Professional fraternities and also the
sororities have been asked to send delegates to'
tonight's meeting to hear the details discussed.
During Mr. Darbo's brief stay in Ann Arbor!
much should be accompanied by the officials of
the Interfraternity Council in order to bring about'
the successful organization of the Fraternity Buy-1
ers Co-operative. If carried through to a suc-'
cessful conclusion, this bids to be the best piece
of constructive work every accomplished by any
council administration.
The meeting tonight will take place in the
Union, and is scheduled for 8 o'clock.
Good-Will Clothes Drive
Ought To Succeed .. .
T IS NOT A comfortable thought
that a fairly large number of stu-

dents at the University of Michigan need clothes.
Yet that they do is attested to both by Union
officials in charge of the current Goodwill Clothes
Drive and by Dean Bursley.
Here because even in the face of extreme
financial difficulties they are determined to ac-
quire an education, this group is possessed of one
of the finest traits men can have. They deserve
help if anyone does.
Lots of us have clothes we rarely or never use,
which we could part with at almost no sacrifice,
and which would do those who really need them
a great deal of good. All that is necessary to get
them into the proper hands is a telephone request
to the Union to have a messenger pick them up.
Probably every fraternity on campus contains
at least one suit of clothes which for one reason
or another will not be worn again. If every fra-
ternity on campus can contribute one such suit,
the Union's drive will be a success. With the ad-
ditional support of independents it should go
eail ver the tots

to "discredit the fraternity system and the Uni-
versity."
The Daily is in favor of the resolution; inter-
ference in the interests of the University is not
paternalism but self-protection. As long as the
authorities confine themselves to protecting the
good name of the school they will have no fear of
offending honest student opinion.
We are equally emphatic however, in the belief
any University policy which would endeavor to
make better men and women out of men and
women. who don't want to be made any better
would be paternalistic and ineffective, and should
be resisted by students and alumni alike.
Alumni interest is one of the most vital of the
good influences of the college. Whatever the re-
sults of the action may be, fraternity men may
be assured that they will always have a sympa-
thetic hearing from men who have faced student
problems in the past.

LETTER TO
ART CINEMA LEAGUE
To the Art Cinema League:
The Wuerth Theatre has just completed a pic-
ture worthy of your attention. "S.O.S Iceberg"
is one of the best educational pictures from the
standpoint of photography, authentic setting, and
realism that has been here for some time. The
setting, in the icefields near Greenland, has a
dynamic atmosphere about it that moves an audi-
ence and at the same time appears educational
as well as artistic. The photography of the giant
icebergs cracking up, the excellent shadow effects,
and the shots of specific interest rank among the
best of the year. Aside from these two points is
the striking realism that the production has
throughout; a touch that will bring home many
new points to the person who hasn't any partic-
ular knowledge of what goes on in the frozen
north. The plot, subordinate to the qualities men-
tioned, adds to the tense excitement and makes
for a fine all around production.
Shows like this would make excellent Art Cinema
fare.

GARBO'S DISGUISE
By HUBBARD KEAVY
HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 12.-The disguise that the
elusive Greta Garbo adopts for shopping is
so obvious that she deceives very few. Here's what
she was wearing the other day in a Wilshire bou-
levard store: low heeled sports shoes, bluish-grey
trousers, a shaggy tweed coat of brown, dark
glasses and a "jockey cap" with a white celluloid
peak fully six inches long.
To 12-year-old Marybeth Luddy, to whom I
was showing the stars and sights, Miss Garbo said
when asked for her signature:
"I never do that." And without a smile.
I fear Miss Garbo has lost a very enthusiastic
fan.
The Al Jolson film "Wonder Bar" is costing a
few dollars more than Warner expected it would
on account of a trained deer.
There is a Busby Berkeley-conceived "number"
staged within a mirror-encircled stage. A score of
chorines in this enclosure appear, when photo-
graphed, to be several hundred girls. The trained
deer has something to do with this sequence.
He wouldn't perform the first day he was put
into the mirrored compound. He just stood still
and stared and stared. He seemed to be wondering
why there were so many of him. Then the scared
deer fell down and stayed in that position until
his keeper rescued him.
Whereupon it was discovered that he wasn't ex-
actly scared. He'd been drinking. Just beer, but
enough of it had been given him to make him a
little goofy when he discovered there were hun-
dreds of him where only one should have been.
The following day the scene was shot -with
a sobered-up trained deer.
It's Done With Mirrors
Composite photography, which has long been
used by the movies to fool you, has been adopted
for a unique purpose.
When you come to Hollywood hereafter, you can
have a photograph made of yourself with your

favorite star. The picture, to be taken home to
impress the folks, will show you in a very chummy
pose with the star. Trick photography is the ex-
planation, of course.
Speaking of trick photography, this is how a
battle between a mountain lion and police dog
-the highlight of a recent animal film - was
staged. The mountain lion wrestled with a dummy
dog and the dog fought only a dummy lion. Lion
an. dog never were on the set together.
By means of clever photography and adroit cut-
ting, the faked battle became very realistic on the
screen.

The Theatre
FREDERIC LONSDALE'S
"THE LAST OF MRS. CHEYNEY"
Gentlemen crooks with a lady accomplice who
is pure in heart and defends her more technical
purity at the risk of her reputation are ingredients
used with a careless gaiety by Frederic Lonsdale
in his sprightly comedy "The Last of Mrs. Chey-
ney."
Any theatre-goer who enjoyed Lonsdale's "Aren't
We All", as well as his "High Road" will find al-
most an overbundance of good comedy in "The
Last of Mrs. Cheyney." To others it will still re-
main an engaging and lively play with an in-
teresting and well-told story.
Mrs. Cheyney is a most attractive young woman
who desires to get "in the swim" with the social
set. The easiest way was in developing a strictly
business association with a gang of highclass
crooks. Happily enough for the plot of the play,
in doing this, she does not impair the virtue re-
quired of a high-comedy heroine. Her own en-
terprise and association with these crooks lead
her as a guest to a country home of one, Mrs.
Ebley. There she meets a dull and pompous Eng-
lish lord, who offers her an honorable marriage,
and a younger and much more clever English
lord to whom marriage is only the remotest of the
alternatives that he has to offer her. Mr. Lons-
dale's clever artistry in handling a highly amusing,
but none the less difficult situation leaves the
audience highly satisfied in the denouement.
The original Broadway production, presented
a few seasons ago was the starring vehicle for the
glamorous Ina Claire, who recently appeared as
"Marion Frouds" in S.S. Behrman's "Biography."
Miss Claire has the unique reputation for never
having appeared in a flop -even in these days
when a stage manager is apt to call Crane's store-
house at the end of the second act. The Mrs.
Cheyney in Lonsdale's play offered Miss Claire
one of the liveliest and wittiest characters to work
with. This talented actress is particularily gifted
in portraying acid wit and irresistible charm, a
rare combination to be found in any playwright
show. Supporting her in the broadway production
were Roland Young and A. E. Mathews. In the
movie production of three years ago, the title
roles were played by Basil Rathbone and Norma
Shearer.
The "Last of Mrs. Cheyney" is a fast-moving
tale of the sort that it can be truthfully said,
"Never a dull moment."

At Marquette University the football squad
members stated in a survey that one half of them
read the sport page first, one fourth glanced first
at the headlines, some liked the comics at the
beginning - and - one even starts with the ed-
itorials.

A professor at the University of Chicago
was giving a series of lectures on Gothic. Just
beginning to speak one morning at the begin-
ning of the semester he was interrupted by a
student raising his hand:
"Is this French 2?" the student questioned.
"No, this is Gothic," said the professor, re-
suming his lecture.
Again a few minutes later the student
raised his hand.
"It says in this booklet that French 2 is
given in this room at this hour."
"Can't help it," replied the professor. "This
is Gothic,"
The student raised his hand again about ten
minutes later.
"What now," asked the professor.
"Are you Miss Simmons?"
The professor then discontinued his lecture
and had the student marched out of the room.
Because college petters parked their cars before
his home, and because they brought along heaters
to keep them warm, a professor at New York Uni-
versity asked trustees of his suburban town not
to have the snow removed from the roads so that
he could spend some peaceful evenings.
There is a story going around at Oregon
State University about a grad of that insti-
tution who named his son "Sears Roebuck"
and, when asked why, said because the off-
spring was of the "male order."
