THE MICHIGAN DAILY
The Daily is prepared to put the full force of its
editorial power behind the drive. The student
body voted overwhelmingly for East Side beer in
the Undergraduate Council poll so The Daily ca.n-
not choose to do otherwise. We are in the fight
to the finish.
If you are interested in seeing this issue settled
once for all, sign the petitions. The time is short,
so don't wait for the committee to come to you.
The petitions will be ready for your signature at
the Tavern, the College Inn, the Parrot, the New
Granada Cafe, and The Daily. If you are a duly
qualified voter of the city of Ann Arbor, sign the

ADVANCE notices from one publishing house
after another indicate that books are yet being
sold and read, despite the Democrats. In con-
nection with this matter, it is a growing cer-
tainty that if the general public can read Ger-
trude Stein and get a feeling of thrilling, yet hazy
awe out of her work, such people as Eugene
O'Neill, with his "Days Without End" and "Ah!
Wilderness" (Random House), are fairly apt to
get a sizeably critical circle of devotees.
Miss Stein, in collaboration with Virgil Thomp-
son, recently developed an opera as the latest of
her excursions into the realm of refined Dadaism.
It is called "Four Saints in Three Acts," and the
consensus of judgment is that, despite two dis-
parities, it is a pretty good opera. Arrangements
have been completed by Random House, New
York, to publish this opera, which will shortly be
available to campus mystics.
The two disparities, by the way, are: first, be-
tween the number of saints and acts announced
and the number which make their appearance;
second between the meaning of the opera as Ger-
trude Stein sees n ana the meaning as the average
reader sees it.
The writer should explain that he has not read
the opera: he has seen only the press notices.

The Random House proof-readers, say the press-
agents, are "fresh from a tussle with the 780 pages
of James Joyce's 'Ulysses'." Mr. Joyce won ac-
claim some years ago with "Portrait of the Artist
as a Young Man," and in recent years has loomed
importantly on the literary horizon as an advocate
of a richer language. This opulence of verbiage
sometimes makes him difficult, but when the full-
ness of his meaning is appreciated, it is quickly
seen that his method has much value. "Ulysses"
has had troubles vaguely reminiscent of those that
"Jurgen" experienced in its infancy, but it has
weathered adversity sufficiently to allow a copy
to reach us. It will be reviewed by Leo Kirsch-
baum of the Engineering English department very

FERDINAND PECORA, the fiery little prosecu-
tor of the senate banking investigation, has a
new claim to fame.
He turned down a date with Peggy Hopkins
Joyce, the much-married. She 'phoned his sec-
retary to say that she had some financial in-
formation she wished to turn in.
"Ask her if she will please write me all about
it in a letter," instructed Pecora.
THE White House staff is accustomed to sur-

when the well-known Washington "grande dame"

Beginning with fake attacks on big business
and the "moneyed interests," the regiment ends by
increasing the power of the great trusts and in-
tensifying the plight of the middle classes.
Beginning with talk of a new social order, the
regime ends by crushing the labor union, con-
fiscating their funds, and abolishing the right to
strike: thus enslaving labor.
Is it any wonder that Lord Rothermere and a
certain section of British big business, seeing all
criticism suppressed, profits made at expense of
workers and middle classes, labor shackled and
chained, hail Fascism as the New Utopia?
The great interests that financed Hitler rub
their hands with glee as wage cuts, war prepara-
tion, and higher tariffs swell their profits.
And critics go to the concentration camps.

AT the Health service, we are interested pri-
marily in the prevention of disease processes.
We are dealing with a selected group both in in-
telligence and in health. About two per cent of
our general population has the privilege of higher
education. Therefore, it is becoming to emphasize
to students the growing importance of degenera-
tive disease as the cause of death for adults in
society. The mortality statistics show the dis-
eases classified as degenerative -heart disease,
diseases of the blood vessels, kidneys, cancer, dia-
betes, chronic liver and intestinal disease, and
mental deterioration -heading the list.
Formerly, the greatest problem in medicine was
to control the death rate in contagious diseases
such as typhoid fever, scarlet fever, diphtheria,
etc. Heredity affects the susceptibility of the
individual to degenerative disease but even with
this fact taken into account, susceptible individu-
als can enjoy reasonable health if they follow the
simple principles of right living. Many people
deliberately shorten their lives by habits which
might well be avoided. Degenerative disease is
the result of frequent insults to the system over
a long period of time which cause accumulative
damage to the blood vessels, heart, kidneys, liver,
etc. Low grade infections, frequent colds, infected
teeth, infected tonsils, gastro-intestinal upsets,
too much coffee, too much tea, too much alcohol,
too much smoking and eating, irregularities of
exercise, and insufficient rest violate the laws of
It is natural for the bodily tissues to remain
well and healthy. These are problems which
confront the individual and over which he has
a great deal of control.
Victims of the recent fraternity robberies at
Dickinson college met to decide the fate of the
culprits should they be caught. Lynching was
supported by a few, but the majority suggested
the alternative of pledging them.
Defying one of Stanford University's sacred
customs, a small co-ed sat calmly on the law
school steps while half of the law school clapped
feverishly and the rest of the audience laughed
loudly. No women on the steps of the law school
has long been a tradition.
