Football Training Table
Should Be Restored...,

Dunn does the pursuing in the role of Detective
Sullivan, and Claire Trevor, as a snappy-catch-if-
you-catch-can newspaper reporter is the pursued.
The picture moves rapidly, taking the audience
all over New York City and environs in search
of criminals, loose women, and almost anybody
who could either be put into jail or in the news.
Some situations that are almost hilarious result
from some of these escapades, and the conglomera-
tion of these incidents has been whipped into a
deliciously entertaining picture, which would be a
gr'eat deal more delectable if it were not for the
manner in which the scenario writers always
manage to make up some silly phrase for James
Dunn to say every two minutes or so. This time
it is "I'll give it my poisonal attention." Claire Tre-
vor gives a good performance, but it is doubtful as
to whether she could ever be cast successfully in a
role other than one requiring only the ability to ex-
ecute wise cracks, comebacks, and pay offs. "Hold
That Girl" will hold your attention well enough
to entertain you quite satisfactorily, but will cause
you to wish that there had been just a little
more care, ingenuity, and finesse spent on its cre-
ation.
"Cross Country Cruise" is all pursue and be pur-
sued, having its setting in a transcontinental bus,
and enjoying more sex than is necessary, a murder,
and a fiendish villain. If the picture did not have
Lew Ayres in it, it would be both better and worse
off than it is, and the judge of this situation is
whether you do or do not like this young man. The
plot would be good if "Grand Hotel" and "Dinner
at Eight" had not preceded it, because it is defi-
nitely an offshoot of these more illustrious produc-
tions. Picture Alice White, Eugene Pallette, Mar-
jorie White, Alan Dinehart, and Lew Ayres all in
the same bus together for several days doing their
respective works as vamp, comedian, heroine, vil-
lain, and hero in a melodramatic concoction with
a "bang ip" ending and you have a fair idea of
what to expect in "Cross Country Cruise." Don't
expect much, however. -C.B.C.

The Dance
A CLEARED PATH
FOR WEIDMAN AND HUMPHREYS
ROBERT HENDERSON'S soon-to-be presenta-
tion of Charles Weidman and Doris Humph-
reys in three separate and distinct dance recitals
comes at an opportune moment. Last year it is
conceivable that the reception given these two
excellent dancers might have been tepid - not
because of penury and bad judgment of values, but
because the fact that there is such an art as the
dance had been almost forgotten. There had been
no build-up for a dance program, save in publicity
incidentals to the Dramatic Season. Angna Enters'
reception was the result of her own widespread
fame; her name was a by-word. But Weidman and
Humphreys are not so well known in these parts,
outside of professional circles, although their repu-
tation among the elite is an exceedingly high one.
It is easily predictable, however, that attendance
at the three matinee recitals of Weidman and
Humphreys this season - May 21-23 - will draw
crowds closely approximating the size of the houses
at the plays. The parties immediately responsible
for the eagerness with which these dancers are
awaited are the members and directors of Play
Production and Dance Club. Under the imme-
diate incentive of Valentine B. Windt, these two
groups combined to present two dance recitals
during the past year - recitals successful in the
achievement of their aim, popular, beautiful, and
roundly applauded. Ann Arbor, in brief, is dance
conscious; and this is mutually a good thing for
Ann Arbor and the forthcoming dance team. For
Weidman and Humphreys will dance to packed
houses, and Ann Arbor's dance consciousness will
lure Ann Arbor to watch fine dancing.
It is to be stressed that none of the three per-
formances will be a repetition of its predecessors.
Each has been independently planned, so that it
will be possible to see all three recitals without a
suspicion of boredom. Mr. Henderson's practice of
presenting dancers as a departure from the regular
program of plays is a good one, and may indicate,
among other things, that he is not blind to the
principle that Mr. Windt and his associates have
emphasized -the close relation between dancing
and acting.

Musical Events
T A HOUSE with S.R.O., Lucrezia Bori, sup-
ported ably by Mario Chamlee, Desire Fred-
eric, and the chorus of the Detroit Civic Opera
Company, gave a charming performance of "Ma-
non" Tuesday night. Having seen her so cosmopol-
itan here in the Festival, it was somewhat startling
to find her in a wig and a striped frock as the
young Manon in the first act. When she appears
later in satin, powdered wig, and feathers, she fits'
into the worldly picture one has of her. She sang
the "Voyons, Manon," the "Adieu, Little Table,"
and the Gavotte interlude in the fourth act, with
great piquancy and youthfulness. The opera
stopped for the time being in this act for her to
repeat the quaint air. At the curtain, the cast,
the stars, the conductor, the producer, and all, took
their bows under the generous supervision of Bori.
Richard Bonelli, Mario Chamlee, Pasquale Am-
ato, and Maria Borova are appearing in the second
production of the Detroit Civic Opera Company of
"Rigoletto," Friday night. With the enthusiastic re-
ception given "Manon," the interest in "Rigoletto"
will be given a decided impetus.
The performances take place at the Masonic
Temple, beginning at 8:15. -S.P.

H EAD FOOTBALL COACH Harry G.
Kipke left yesterday for Chicago
where the Big Ten Athletic Board will meet Friday
and Saturday to consider, among other things, the
restoration of the training-table for a daily meal'
for football players.
Both this proposal and another important issue
which contemplates the lengthening of the pre-
liminary practice sessions by five days in the fall
are concrete evidences of the recent trend away
from "de-emphasis" or toward "over-emphasis" -
depending on how you look at it. Four years ago,
after the Carnegie report on over-emphasis in col-
lege football had achieved national prominence,
no group of schools would have dared pass such
proposals. From every side would have come rabid
shouts of "Professionalizing college athletes!" or
"Commercialism!"
At that time training tables, if any still existed,
disappeared completely, seasons were shortened
and "the game given back to the boys," with a
vengeance.
Now the pendulum swings back -not, we believe,
to over-emphasis, but to a sane attitude toward
the game of football and toward the men who
play it. The boys are not going to get any hundred-
dollar-a-month cinch jobs because they are back-
field stars --nor are they going to be looked 4f
askance and branded as professionals if they belong
to a good fraternity and wear good clothes.
Anyone who brands the training table which
serves athletes a single meal a day as "Commer-j
cialization" has not yet lost the over-emphasis
complex. No all-state prep stars are going to come
to Michigan or any other Conference school justI
because they get a free meal each day for three
months in the fall, especially when they have to;
earn that meal with three hours of hard practice.
With Harry Kipke we favor the present proposed
plan to restore the training table to the Big Ten.
The pendulum is swinging back - and we are
glad to see it. With Coach Kipke we hope that the
new sentiment will be crystallized this week-end
into a rule.

THE INLANDER
A Review of the Current Issue
By ERICH A. WALTER
uTHE INLAND REVIEW," Vol. 1, No. 2 goes on
sale today. It is distinctly a better number
than the first in its balance of departments and in
its quality of content.
The poetry of this second issues comes from the
study rather than from the heart. None of it sings,
unless one excepts Leo Kirshbaum's couplet,
What scenes await our golden, gleaming
bard?
What animals will roam in Buelah Land?
Walter Crow's "tableau" is an exercise in similes;
Otto Bird's "Tree" is "touched by Spring" but one
feels that the touch lacks fire. "Death in the Snow"
is convincing with its description of the " awfulness
of terrible cold; not with its description of the
beauty of snow. C. E. W. L. Dahlstrom contributes
a neat satire. Robert Ripton's "Collogue Sinister"
has, I believe, a humorous intent.
Literary criticism is represented by two strong
contributions, Mr. Coon's re-evaluation of Ludwig
Lewisohn's "Expression in America," and Mr. Roel-
linger's review of "The Hound and Horn" Henry
James number. Both of these judgments are ex-
actly the kind one has a right to expect in a
college literary journal. Mr. Roellinger's essay is
particularly well written. In addition to these
outstanding pieces there are Mr. Webster's ade-
quate review of "Story Magazine" and Mr. Polk's
intorduction to a comparative study of the literary
mind and the legal mind.
The three narrative pieces are all of fairly high
quality. One is surprised, however, that with the
number of manuscripts submitted for this issue
the narrative material should all reflect preciosity.
This quality is particularly marked in the sketches
"Meeting" and "August Afternoon." Messrs. Elder
and Ratliff have written narratives of a much less
precious nature. (This is not a condemnation of
the stories; it is a criticism of the editor's choice).
Mr. Ratliff's "You Know Without Saying" shows
a remarkable control of narrative technic.
Mrs. Hinshaw's familiar essay portrays charm-
ingly a fairly universal experience of all would-
be writers, but the essay does not prove her ability
to write with the directness revealed in her 1933
Hopwood prize story.
The editor is quite right when he comments,
"The responsibility must rest upon individuals
whose interest in good writing and good think-
ing on this campus amounts to more than mere

MAY DAY, CONTINUED
To the Editor of the Daily:
It is curious to observe that some of the partici-
pants in the May Day trip have loudly declaimed
that the. metropolitan papers and The Daily have
not told the "truth" about the incident. After read-
in the accounts in the News, Free Press, and the
Daily, the pamphlet "Much Ado About Nothing,"
and the various letters to the Daily by Messrs.
Cannon, Wood, and others, I should like to ask just
what important "truths" were omitted by the news-
papers. The article in the Detroit News of May 2, I
feel, stated the police brutality in stronger and
more specific terms than have any of the stu-
dent accounts. "Much Ado About Nothing" was
only a vague condensation of what had already
been printed in the papers. The Free Press dis-
played its usual rancorous prejudice, but even it
gave the students' reports of the attack, though in
an obscure position and without benefit of head-
line.
In judging the motives of the students who
made the trip we should keep in mind that such
questions as the political affiliations of the par-
ticipants are irrelevant; the essential question is
"Can you honestly say that you went for any pur-
pose other than the hope of making or meeting
trouble?" Did not the students deliberately seek a
police clash by consorting at Grand Circus Park,
where they certainly knew a meeting had been for-
bidden by the city's legally elected authorities?
I am quite cognizant of the fact that the point
of view of the organizers of the trip was that the
Detroit authorities could not validly forbid an
assembly at the park because the Constitution
guarantees free speech and assembly. Is this con-
tention valid? It is surely a strange perversion of
the intent of the Constitution's framers to claim
that a city is denied ordinary police powers. If
a city can forbid assemblage in buildings where
the fire risk is too great for safety, can it not for-
bid assemblage where it would hamper public con-
venience? Streets are meant to serve as channels
of traffic and parks as places of rest and recrea-
tion. The heart of the business section is no place
for meetings. Other more suitable sites for meetings
and speech-making were suggested and available,
but were stubbornly refused by Detroit May Day
organizers.
If any students went to the park solely to defend
Constitutional rights as they understand them they
at least deserve respect; but those who used "Con-
stitutional rights" as a mere excuse to cause trouble
must be branded as hypocritical; and as for those
who were just making a "sociological investiga-
tion" -they are either fools or liars.
I have not commented on the policemen's bru-
tality solely because it has already been so well
condemned. No doubt the officers in question will
think it best to keep their identity a deep secret.
While the Daily news story of May 2 was, I feel,
adequate, the paper certainly deserves criticism for
the false impression given to Dean Bates' com-
ments by the May 6 headline; nor was the edi-
torial in regard to Mr. Cheyfitz in good taste.
