300 feet would be a more reasonable distance than
500 feet. The common council, however, decided
that in view of the controversial nature of the
question the people should have the opportunity
to express their opinions at a public hearing. The
ordinance committee will meet directly following
the hearing to decide upon a recommendation to
be made to the council in the light of the opinions
expressed.
The Daily appreciates the fact that the Council
is experimenting in an almost unprecedent I1
field, and is proceeding cautiously and rationally,
with the interest of Ann Arbor at heart. The Daily
would, however, like respectfully to recommend
that they so modify the liquor ordinance that it
will not eliminate clean, respectable cafes, selling
beer, from entertaining the students within the
city.
Such modification might best take the form of
relaxing the restrictions on the closing hour (in
accofdance with the ruling of the State Liquor
Control Commission) and permitting dancing
under propitious conditions. The Council would
still retain its most potent weapon, by which it
can best weed out those places it deems unfit -
the clause that requires all such places to be
licensed by the council. By making these licenses
renewable each year, and revokable anytime, by
granting them with judicious discrimination, and
with a full cognizance of the circumstances under
which the place is to operate, the council may con-'
trol the amusement cafes with an even greater
flexibility than under the present ordinance.
It scarcely need be pointed out, further, that
the tax from such places would not be unwelcome
to the city.
The Council has indicated its desire to hear the
opinions of the residents of Ann Arbor. The Daily
urges that all who have a valid reason for or
against the proposed distance amendment attend
the public hearing at 7:30 tonight.

As Others See It
THREE CROSSES AND
THREE NOOSES
This week is Passion Week and millions of
Christians all over the world will attend religious
services and listen to sermons depicting the suf-
ferings of Christ, leading up to his crucifixion.
As we look forward to next Friday, we visualize
three victims, hanging upon three crosses, on Cal-
vary's Hill. As we look backward to last Friday,
we see three young Negro men, swinging from
three gallows, down in Mississippi.
The trio in Mississippi went to their death last
Friday, for an alleged criminal assault upon a
woman. One of the spectators who witnessed the
triple execution, was the father of the girl against
whom the crime was said to have been committed.
He was not content with the fact that the men
had been condemned to die; but he had sought
through the Mississippi Legislature the privilege
of being the executioner to spring the death trap
which would take the victims' lives. His petition
was fortunately denied.
While the girl's father looked on, with murder
in his heart, he saw the three young men mount
the gallows; he saw the noose placed about each
victims' neck, and a black cap drawn over his
eyes; he saw the trap sprung and the three bodies
dangle in the air.
There were others present at the execution,
however, whose vision was not blinded with the-
spirit of vengeance and race prejudice. They
looked upon those three lifeless bodies hanging
on the gallows, and asked themselves these ques-
tions: "Were they guilty?" ".Did they have the
same consideration and impartial curt trial; that
white men would have been given, under similar
circumstances?" "Was this another instance of
innocent Negroes being put to death, to satisfy
some enemy's secret grudge, or to shield a woman
from blame?"
These are the questions which white America
might well seek to answer at this time, as the
nation faces Passion Week and Good Friday.

IM CRISTY won the 1934 Big Ten
athletic and scholarship medal.
The 1933 award went to Ivan Williamson. The
points of similarity between these two men are
too marked to be disregarded. Let us point out1
a few:
Both captained great Michigan teams. William-
son's football team was awarded the National
Championship under the Dickinson rating sys-
tem. Cristy is captain of one of Michigan's typi-
cally strong swimming teams. They already holdJ
the Big Ten title and are calculated to make a
strong bid for the National Championship at Co-
lumbus this week-end.
Both, were inspiring leaders of the traditionally
quiet Michigan type. Both were selected as cap-
tain over flashier team-mates. Both made sacri-
flees - all Michigan captains do. Williamson
played Saturday football all season with a dam-
aged knee that, surprisingly to those not in the
know, went to pieces as soon as the season was
over. Cristy two weeks ago sacrificed his chances
to set a new Big Ten mark in the 440 because ie
wanted to save his strength for the 220 yard
event.
Both compete with the quiet intensity that
makes champions. Experts agree that Williamson
was a better end than his more spectacular team-
mate who won All-American mention. Cristy
never blows, even pokingly. In practice he swims
-anid swims - and swims -up and down the
25-yad pool, more than a mile every day. It
ws ythis same quiet intensity that made them
good students - it takes intensity to get good
grades and still spend hours every day practicing
football or swimming.
It is a great honor to receive the Big Ten medal
for proficiency in scholarship and athletics, but
almost unnecessary, it seems to us. After all,
weren't they Michigan captains?

It is a long time since this reviewer has seen
a film directed by Cecil B. DeMille; but if this
one can be taken as authentic, the old master
has lost very little of his old art and technique.
There are mass scenes in this film reminiscent
of the "Ten Commandments." Mr. DeMille shows
himself capable of his task, pliable to the chang-
inig interests of the day.
The action of this film is so rapid that it
would be impossible even to outline the story.
Thie best ( can do is to give a brief appetizer of
the plot, hupitig that eahers will be dissatisfied
elwogh to pay the price of admission and find
out the rest for themselves.
A gang --- the ever-present gang - is success-
fully creating, a labor racket of tailor shops in a
small town, which has so much of a high school
that its other buildings cannot be seen. A tailor,
befriended by the students, is shot because of his
refusal to join the gangster association. The stu-
dents go after the gangsters, two of their number
are killed in the attempt. After this their efforts
are trebled. They way in which they succeed is,
o say the least, fantastic; but this being a movie,
we'll let it pass.
The one and main objection I have to offer is
this: Mr. Director should have known better than
to give to a high school a college atmosphere and
college students. There is no reason why the
substitution of a college would not have been
better. The story in no way would have been in-
jured. For such a mistake, for such a ridiculous
mistake, it rates no more than two stars plus.
There were times in the film where this reviewer
"jest set back and enjoyed hisself," momentarily
forgetting his role as a critic. DeMille's power of
holding interest fascinated him. The director has
created a spirit of youthful exuberation, enthu-
siasm, and vitality that is thematically dominant
in the film. The youthful actors really enjoy
themselves here. They don't have to act. They
portray roles that are perfectly familiar to them,
for they simply act naturally. This naturalness is
a great help both to themselves and to the audi-
ence. -J.C.S.

DAILY DEVOID OF SOCIAL
IMAGINATI ION, INTELLJaCTUAL VISION
To the Editolr:
There is 1 phase of the beer-sale issue that has
not, beti, touched upon yet; in the voluminous and
contitiiots publicity given it in the columns of
The Daily. Possibly it is one of the most signifi-
cant phases of the entire issue, I fe.el that college
generations in the far future will certainly judge
it sm. This issue represents an extremely inter-
esting and in many ways accurate index of the
scale of values, both journalistic and moral, of
The Daily.
Future generations will get the picture of a
university newspaper so utterly devoid of social
imagination and intellectual vision that, in the
midst of revolutionary social and economic
changes throughout the lane, it could only find
one cause to champion- the sale of beer on State
Street. Social and economic justice, world peace
and understanding, the development of a more
functional educational system and a host of other
vital issues meant little or nothing to this Paper.
At least so it would seem from the Paper itself.
Surely by its fruit alone one must know it.
What a sorry state of affairs this is! . I would
vote against this beer issue for no other reason
than that it is a manifestation of a totally inade-
quate social intelligence and set of moral values
on the part of a large section of the Campus, as
represented by The Daily. And I want to protest
against such inadequacy. Gordon B. HaIstead

It doesn't matter if you don't know the answers
at West Point. When an army plebe has been
asked something he doesn't understand by an
upperclassman, he must reply:
"My head is of Vermont marble, laminated lay-
ers of ivory and hardest teakwood. Nothing known
under the sun can percolate through the chrome-
vanadium steel casing; the density of the noggin
resting on my shoulders resists the advent of all
factual material. . . in other words I don't know
the answer.".
After interviewing over 400 co-eds at the Uni-
versity of Missouri, the ideal man was found to be
a salmagundi of the following traits:
Able to stand the patter of women without be-
ing bored.
Good manners ulithout being awkish.
Independent.
Conceited.
Capable of asserting himself and be domineer-

JHE Good Friday organ recital, given annually
by Palmer Christian, has come to mean a great
deal on the campus, as a special way of recog-
nizing the day and its significance: even those
people who ordinarily miss either the regular
weekly recitals, or regular attendance at Church,
make an effort to hear the Passion music selected
for this occasion.
It is hardly astounding that the instrument
which has been nurtured in the Church should
possess great works, from the earliest times in
organ history to the present, marking the great
drama of the Church. Perhaps best known and
most endeared to an audience is the Parsifal

in.
Sense of humor,
No obvious line.
Be a conversationalist- and one insisted
he be 6 feet tall, be a good dancer, have a
tsar, plenty of money, and be handsome.
