understand what the fuss is about.
Last week's Michigan Alumnus put it very aptly

thinking about? Well, there's one advantage in
being in a lot of events. You don't have time to
do any thinking. You just go out there and keep
trying to do your best."

Wheeler and Woolsey are back again at the
Michigan with their usual wise cracks and hi-
larity. Whether you like "Hips, Hips, Hooray" or
not depends entirely upon what you think of these
two gentlemen and their fast-moving, farcical
type of comedy, because there is very little else in
the picture. Of course, there is Thelma Todd's
figure, Dorothy Lee's aren't-you-cute-expression,
and Ruth Etting's singing (which, incidentally, is
presented only once).
"Hips, Hips, Hooray" is a series of scenes that
have been pieced together in a rather helter-skel-
ter manner in order to present an hour or so of
entertainment. There is virtually no plot except
for the fact that the boys are in the cosmetic
business, more or less, and that by some amusing
bluffing they link themselves up with the "Maiden
America" company, which is owned by a very
delectible floozy in the person of Thelma Todd.
They get into one mess after another, are con-
stantly chased by detectives, and finally become
involved in a cross-country automobile race. This
last item puts them in situations which because
of their absurdity are highly entertaining.
Ruth Etting sings "Keep Romance Alive;" Dor-
othy Lee and Bert Wheeler make goo-goo eyes at
each other while singing "Keep on Doin' What
You're Doin'," and Robert Woolsey says "Whoa"
with his typical inflection, which always is good
for a laugh with some people.
Among the added attractions is "Scotland the
Bonnie," a travelogue which is worth the price of
admission alone. There is an "Our Gang" com-
edy, however, which makes one wish that he had'
not paid it.

To the Editor:
I wish to call to your attention an erroneous
statement in your editorial of March 24 entitled
"Mr. Farley On His Racket."
You call the Roosevelt program, or lack of pro-
gram, constructively socialistic when it is noth-
ing of the kind for the following reasons: First,
industry under the present administration is not
publicly owned and democratically controlled.
Second, the administration is making no attempt
to make the incomes of the people equal or nearly
equal. Third, it is employing the old capitalistic
taxation method of redistributing income.
The contradictions between the above men-
tioned editorial and Frances Perkins' speech of
March 23 are very striking. Miss Perkins has al-
ways been described as one of the most liberal
members of Roosevelt's cabinet. Yet even after
her declaration of faith in the capitalist system,
you print an editorial calling the present admin-
Miss Perkins states that the system must be
revised so that consumption balances production.
If consumption were to balance productiohthe
workers would have to be paid the full value of
their labor. And any system in which the worker
is paid the full value of his labor is not capitalism.
She also says that for the present system to
work properly workers and owners must co-oper-
ate .Anyone should be able to see that there can
be no co-operation between those whose interests
are diametrically opposed. Would one expect co-
operation between the butcher and the lamb?
The Honorable Secretary calls to our attention
the large increase in mail order business in the
cotton belt where farmers have benefited from
acreage reduction on programs. In order to analyse
this statement we must first make an investigation
of the farming methods in that section of the
country. Most of our cotton is produced by tenant
farmers called share croppers, who are living un-
der a slave system as bad as chattel slavery. The
government paid huge sums of money to the own-
ers of cotton producing farms to plow under cot-
ton. Note that this money was paid to farm
owners, not farmers. As a consequence of acre-
age reduction of cotton lands share croppers are
being driven out of their homes by the thousands
with no place to go, and nothing is being done for
them. This is just what we might expect from
the administration for Roosevelt has said that
his aim is to restore profits.
Miss Perkins dreams of a capitalistic society
in which there would be prosperity for all. Now,
prosperity is a comparative term and if there are
any inequalities in the standards of living of dif-
ferent classes of people those with the most are
the prosperous and those with the least are the
poor. Under capitalism inequalities are a natural
result. Therefore we can not have prosperity for
all under capitalism.

Professor Waite Looks
At The Detective Story. ..
L AW. PROFESSOR John Barker
Waite is becoming quite an author.
Last week we announced publication of his latest
book, "Criminal Law In Action." Now we find,
leafing through the magazines, that he has an
article in the current Scribners, called "If Judges
Wrote Detective Stories."
The article as well as the book is well worth
reading. In it Professor Waite points out that
' the realities of arrest, search, and detainment of
criminals are at marked variance with the popu-
lar conception of them presented in detective Pic-
tion and entertained by the public.
In the ordinary mystery story the police in-
vestigate every clew that their ingenious minds
hit upon, detain everyone in any way implicated,
and make no bones about arresting all possible
suspects. In real life, Professor Waite points out,
this procedure is illegal. Written warrants are
necessary for all criminal-capture activity unless
the officers of the law have reasonable grounds
for belief of built -and it is extremely difficult
to convince the courts of reasonability.
It makes no difference if the criminal is cap-
tured, or if irrefutable evidence of his guilt is ob-
tained; no conviction can be had, if the counsel
for defense knows his business, when the police
stray so much as one inch from the tortuous path
that leads through the thicket of arrest and
The police don't always know this, of course,
and sometimes a mistake slips by. But the bene-
fit, which may accrue to the public in such cases
Whether he. knows it or not, Professor Waite's
article is an eloquent plea for criminal justice re-
form, "In nine-tenths of the cases before the
courts," he says, "the judicial rules of arrest are
invoked to save the, guilty." A code which oper-
ates nine out of ten times in favor of the wrong
party is a bad code, and ought to be abolished.

Clementi's B-fiat major Sonata, with which Mrs.
Case and Miss Nelson opened the program, seemed
to lack in performance both the precision of at-
tack and the excellent interpretation which char-
acterized the numbers to follow. The audience
was most receptive to the Saint-Saens variation
of Beethoven, in which Mrs. Case and Miss Nel-
son had ample opportunity to exhibit music dis-

Miss Newell opened her group of numbers
with Tschaikovsky's Conzonetta, in which she did
not seem quite able to fully grasp the sensitivity

however, her presentation was highly pleasing.
Her interpretation of Mozart's great classicism

is requisite. The efficiency with which she per-

It has been proposed that the school week at
Massachusetts Institute of Technology be short-
ened to five days. The boys of this school will
have no classes on Wednesday afternoon or Sat-
urday morning if the plan is adopted.
One professor: "I am utterly opposed to it. I
think the thing is absolutely absurd. Any ten-
dency to turn the school into a factory is most
Another: "I am in favor of the experiment. It
would give the students more time for their work
as well as more time for their recreation."
After much consideration we have voted
this week's "boner" prize to the professor at
Clemson College who rushed into an empty
classroom, cursed the class for cutting, and
then discovered he had come to an eight
o'clock instead of a nine.
