tion makes it hardly worth more than a tired
Yet there is good reason for the plea. Grass
won't grow if it is trampled in the spring. It is
necessary to "Keep off the Grass" when it is getting
its start, or, instead of lawn a few months later,
there will be only mud and dust.
Particularly in Ann Arbor, where we have a
large campus, is the request in order. And particu-
larly is it in order this spring, owing to the exceed-
ingly heavy snow we had early in the month.
So in dead earnest we say, to faculty and stu-
dents, "Please Keep off the Grass."

We're Sticking
.o Cappon .. .
D tURING the vacation period, Mich-
igan students who perused the sport
pages of various newspapers throughout this sec-
tion, were amused, perhaps slightly shocked, at
reading rumors of a proposed change in the bas-.
ketball coaching situation here. -
Somewhere or other, certainly not from the local
athletic authorities, a rumor started that Ben Van
Alystine, Michigan State cage mentor, would take
over Coach Franklin Cappon's duties as Wolverine
basketball coach next year. Coach Cappon, accord-
ing to the rumor, would be shifted to some other
The rumor was quickly spiked. Athletic Director
Yost denied it. State's Athletic Director, Ralph
Young, denied it. Furthermore, Yost stated that
he was perfectly satisfied with Cappon and that
no change was even contemplated.
Although we don't know where the rumor start-
ed, we dislike the whole idea. We believe that
Michigan is satisfied with Cappon. We are entirely
in discord with the common practice in some of
the prominent universities of firing a coach on the
slightest provocation.
Coach Willaman of Ohio State lost a couple of
football games to Michigan. He was replaced.
Coach Anderson of Notre Dame had a compara-
tively poor season. The alumni kicked up such a
fuss that Elmer Layden now holds his position.
Michigan doesn't do things that way. Perhaps
that's one reason why the Wolverines keep on
winning games. The student body, we believe, have
faith in Franklin Cappon.
The S.C.A. Breaks
A Precedent..
F OR FORTY YEARS a junior has
been chosen in the spring to serve
during the next year as president of the Student
Christian Association. This year the precedent has
been broken, the board in control of the S.C.A. has
selected for the honor and responsibility of its
presidency a sophomore, Russell Anderson.
We are all in favor of breaking precedents. Re-
form and progress are built on broken precedents.
The S.C.A. has seemingly caught the spirit that
is the local and national air.

"Massacre" is a film of the modern American
Indian problem. Handled in the stereotyped Holly-
wood manner, its happy and contented ending is
not only false, but spoils what is otherwise a power-
ful expository drama of the exploitation of the
original Americans at the hands of big business
and its tools, the ignorant, selfish, cruel, petty
government officials.
Joe Thunder Horse is a rodeo exhibition rider
whose blood is Indian, but whose education, speech,
and ideas are thoroughly Chicagoan. On news of
his father's. death on a western reservation, he
drives there with the intention of settling his par-
ent's estate-,and returning in a few weeks. But the
winsome face of Lydia, an Indian girl, and his
uncovering of the miserable conditions under which
his people are living and being mistreated, force
his conscience and person to remain. He devotes
his time to angering the resident officials and is
driven to appeal to influential friends in Wash-
ington to intervene and reform the existing evils.
The portrayal of the exploitation of the Indian
is a counterpart of Negro exploitation in the
South, and is interesting in its revelations.
The theme of the piece, save for its unfortunate
and unrealistic ending, far overshadows anything
else in the film. This is proper in this type of
film. Director Alan Crosland almost succeeds in
toning down the histronics of Richard Barthel-
mess, Ann Dvorak, and Dudley Digges. While it
lacks the expected elements of suspense, fear, and
humor, its steady progression, Fixity of purpose,
and unity of idea all contribute to the film's value
as a social document of a problem which is still

WINIFRED ARTHUR, will give her graduation
recital in the School of Music Auditorium this
evening. Her program has been designed to meet
academic standards yet it has its own value in
being splendid music. Many familiar things are
included, the appeal of which is not diminished
by familiarity.
TECHNICALLY, Everett Jay Hilty is capable of
giving a much more convincing recital than he
gave yesterday afternoon. For he has a technique
and a musicianship that has worked out contrasts
and color effects, he has a knowledge of the type
of music he is playing, and the appropriate ap-
proach for that.
The first section of the program, with a well-
defined characterization between the Ranff and
Buxtehude, and a sound attack with the Bach,
gave way to a nervousness that diminished the
force of his best intentions. However, to continue,
he drew well the contrast between the Bach works
and the Karg-Elert improvisation of the Bach
Choral Prelude; the feeling for them brought that
portion to a normal close. The concluding Vierne
Symphony had its very satisfactory moments.
Emergencies, and exigencies of a student recital
in this case have less serious impingements for
probably Mr. Hilty's work will be such that he will
not be appearing as a concert organist. At any
rate, he proved himself master of his fate and
captain of his soul, besides a musically-minded

ROBERT HENDERSON, organizer and director
of the annual Dramatic Festival that will pa-
rade glittering units before us during the last half
of May and the early portion of June, has at last
succeeded in coupling Ian Keith, noted star of stage
and screen, with Florence Reed, who has thus far
limited her talents to the legitimate theatre, for a
presentation of "Macbeth" as a featured part of
the festival. Miss Reed will be remembered for her
outstanding work as Lady Macbeth in the George*
C. Tyler piece of some years back, which was addi-
tionally blessed with the scenic artistry of Gordon
Ian Keith, however, has his own ideas about a
production of "Macbeth" - and when an efficient
actor uses his head sufficiently to evolve a scheme
of production for so intricate a tragedy as this one,
lofty things loom iminent. Mr. Keith's letter to
Mr. Henderson, setting forth these ideas, is printed
My Dear Mr. Henderson:
First I want to say that I am very happy over
the prospect of playing "Macbeth" and shall cer-
tainly do my best to make it everything you hope
The text of the play contains fewer ambiguities
than most of Shakespeare, and the play itself is so
short that the question of cutting is not such a
bitter problem as usual; but I have an arrangement
which I should like to send on to you; not that
you will learn anything new from it, but it might
suggest some tricks of gaining tempo by certain
I shall, if agreeable to you, supply my own wigs:
the Westmore boys here, who make all the wigs
that you see in pictures, are old friends of mine
and give me non-movie prices. They -do amazing
work, and can be working on my stuff while I'm
out here. Also, if I can know your wishes in the
matter of costume colors and general design, it
might relieve the wardrobe mistress if I brought
on at least one or two of my Macbeth costumes. I
know Kerrigan of Metro very well, and he has made
stuff for me for years. (In fact they are making
my armour for this "Cleopatra" picture).
My feeling about the costuming is that it is never
rugged and barbaric enough. (Neither is "Hamlet,"
usually). The Scots at that time did not have the
complete Tartan designs as we know them, but they
did use the belted plaid, and rough skins - also
cross-gartered thongs to hold leggings, and often
went bare-footed even in the winter. There is a
picture of Booth as Macbeth in the cauldron scene
which is very striking.
Is it possible for the first four scenes of the
second act to run as, in effect, one scene. If you
use your idea of starting with a battle in a storm,
and can blend to the witches, have them disappear
in the lightning flashes, return your scene to Dun-
can, then back to the witches, etc., you will have
a stunning effect of sweep and rushing drama.
Herman the Great or Houdini might be of help to
you at such a point!
Now about the other play which you so gener-
ously suggested that I also play in: you have no
idea how hard we work in thes eDeMi nwenm.

These humble quatrains are composed
To tell a sprightly tale
Of how a witty junior nosed
A senior with a frail.
The tale, ye hearties, goes like this:
It seems two lads were nuts
About a certain little miss
Wliose name, we'll say, was Lutz.
Thejunior's Christian name was Tom;*




Now Bert had honors, letters; he
Was quite the well-known lad.
While two-bucks-ten and faith-in-me
Were all that Tommy had.
When blond Miss Lutz declined to ga
With Bert, he wondered why.
That Tommy should get all the show,
Was quite a blackened eye,
He learned the night the prom was thrown\
