In view of the results obtained it is strange
that such couts have not spread more rapidly than
they have. Let us hope that other states will not

example the way to cut court costs in general,

SARAH LACEY brought the series of graduation
recitals to a successful close. Of a program or-
ganized in chronological order from Handel to
Tcherepnine, Miss Lacey performed the Bach An-
dante in F" from the third Sonata, the Franck
"Prelude, Chorale and Fugue," and the Tcherep-
nine "Bagatelles" with utmost ease and finish.
That these were the outstanding items of the pro-
gram, does not diminish the impression of artistic
interpretation of Handel and Beethoven, but rather
concedes that Miss Lacey seemed more sympa-
thetically inclined toward the other three com-
posers' works. She is limited in strength and power
by the small size of her hands; nevertheless, she
attains depth, colour, and with a facile technique
achieves a substantial effect.
The Andante of. Bach went fluently, after the
correct, crisp Handel Suite. In the Franck, a pian-
ist's favorite, Miss Lacey came into easy, 'sustained
control, bringing nuance, light and shade, ebb and
flow,' to this frequently performed work. In the
Fugue particularly she built to a steady climax. The
chef-d'oeuvre of the recital occurred in the last
group, the Bagatelles, where a straightforward
gaiety pervaded. The steady rhythmic element, the
sharp little twists of dissonance, make this a de-
lightful example of modern writing, and Miss La-
cey's playing agreed in spirit and precision of per-
formance with this style.
Sincere congratulations to Sarah Lacey.

THE TRACK CAPTAINCY
To the Editor:
Under a sweltering sun in Evanston, Illinois, sev-
eral days ago, an athlete representing the Univer-
sity of Michigan, contended in four events against
the pick of Big Ten trackmen, gaining four points
for his team although he Was hampered by the
painful disability of a pulled tendon. in his leg.
This athlete has been the high-point winner of his
team for the past two years, being instrumental in
helping Michigan in winning two Big Ten track
It was expected by everyone that Willis Ward
would be made the captain of the track team for
the coming year. If ever an athlete earned that
post of honor, Ward has done so. His achievements
upon the field, as great as they are, are note his
sole contributions to Michigan's repute as the
champion of the West. Ward has been conscien-
tious, clean, and a competitor who has no blot upon
his academic or athletic records.
Ostensibly it was the team itself, that rejected
Ward as captain, in favor of a chap who has only
been on the team a year, and whose ability is great-
ly overshadowed by that of Ward. The team voted
for its captain. The coach, Charley Hoyt, counted
the votes and reported the result that gave Harvey
Smith, the ex-Illinois student, the post of honor.
We, who are interested in Willis Ward, would
like to know why the track team rebuffed their
most valuable member and proffered the glory of
captaincy to another individual, when, by all the
laws of fairness and justice, Ward should have been
the recipient of such honor. Obviously, Ward is
concealing some great vice from the rest of us.

A limited number of the
S TUDENTS WILL BE called upon to-
day to vote for student nominees
to the Board in Control of Athletics and the Board
in Control of Student Publications. The election,
R despite its limited nature, involves important
enough positions so that it may be taken as an
indication of student interest in self-government.
If that interest is as low as it has consistently
proven on many other issues, that group which
still hoped for truly effective student government
must realize that the cause for its absence lies more
in the apathy of the campus itself than in any
One man will be chosen to represent the students
on the Board in Control of Athletics, which acts
on all matters of athletic policy, including finances,
the hiring of coaches and general supervision of
Michigan interests in sports.
Three of eight nominees will be elected to the
Board in Control of Student Publication,s a body
of seven which will exercise a measure of super-
vision over publications throughout the school year
and appoint managing editors and business man-
agers at the conclusion of the year.
Only. if students continue to exercise their right
to vote for representatives on such boards can the
elimination of all student participation, as has
happened in the case of the Board in Control of the
Student Christian Association, be prevented.
Ann Arbor has had an overdose of musical pic-
tures recently, all of which have been only fair,
and for a critic who has seen them all with an in-
creasingly cynical eye to be sufficiently entertained
to give a good rating to the one that would be con-
sidered the insult heaped upon the injury requires
some good reason. There is such in "Melody in
Spring," namely the presence of Mary Boland and
Charles Ruggles. This comed.y team has been put
very cleverly into an unusual picture dealing with
the attempts of a wealthy American married
couple to thwart a romance between their beautiful
daughter and a potential radio singer. They are
scheduled to leave for Europe for their daughter's
wedding to a young man of their selection when
the singer butts in, wanting primarily to secure a
job on a radio program sponsored by their dog bis-
cuit company. He follows them to Europe, pursuing
the girl and annoying the parents in an almost
hilarious manner. There are sub-plots interwoven
into the picture which accentuate its good points
and make it definitely worth while. However,
Lannie Ross has a great deal to learn about acting
before he can be considered good. There are some
charming Swiss scenes, and besides being amusing
"Melody in Spring" has some pleasingly romantic
C "THE COUNTESS OF MONTE CRISTO"
AND PEACE MOVEMENTS, CONTINUED
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second installment
of a letter discussing the recent Anti-War Conference,
the first part of which appeared in yesterday's Dailr.
On the whole church and University, including
both faculty and students, were apathetic toward
this Conference. At least they did not attend,
though we believe that everyone wants Peace.
The group that did attend in the largest number
had no conception of what was going on at head-
quarters, admitted it, and further did not appear
to want to know. They did not care to co-
operate with anything that has grown out of the
"Capitalistic" system, or help concretely to block an
We endorse, quite to the contrary, bringing pres-
sure to bear, here and now, on the Congress,
through united Constitutional expression.
We do not consider the Conference a failure. It
has revealed the weak, the indifferent; and 'dis-
illusioned us in many ways. When peace groups
first bega'n to meet in Detroit only a handful came.
At the Conference there on March 5 of this year,
2,000 were present.
We have done some little studying on the causes
of War. Faculty and other students have told us
that they, too, will go to Leavenworth rather than
help their country fight another useless war.
If a program of action against "armament mak-
ers who rule the world" (quote from great teacher
and professor on campus as well as substantiation
from our own study) and insistence on sincere and
consecrated and reasonable action is not taken up
and carried on by youth here and now we believe
that we are justified, with a daily increasing num-
ber of others, in breaking the "vicious circle" by
non-violent resistance in another war which will
be caused by the apathy and indifference of the
people of this nation.
We believe that those who have worked from
the first to bring this initial Michigan Interscho-
lastic "Anti-War" Conference to this University
have done so with honor, that the "healing of this
seamless dress is by our beds of pain," and that
another year students will put their shoulders to
the wheel, will put first things first as they did
not do this year.
We recognize Gordon Halstead as a first Amer-
ican Citizen among both students and faculty on
the campus this year.

is a little advice on how to be nonchalant after
getting back an exam:
1. Look around to see if anyone noticed.
2. Ask the fellow on your left what he got. (In-
evitable reply: "What did you get?")
3. Get disgusted and ask the fellow on your
right what he got. He'll reply according to the
4. Refrain from throwing text at fellow on left.
5. Refrain from killing fellow on right.
6. Sigh reluctantly and show paper to both fel-
lows. Look pityingly at them and expect them to
exhibit A paper also.
7. Fellow on left proudly exhibits A.

T ODAY, as a practical matter, in
many American communities, there
is no justice nor the man without means, even
for claims less than' $100. To him justice is a
luxury, the entrance fees of the courts prohibitive,

Thus writes Harry D. Nims. in the June Forum,

Fortunately, however, as Mr. Nims goes on to point
out, certain communities and states have inaugu-

If Fay Wray had the ability to put a sense of
humor into her acting, she would have done a
great deal more with this picture than she has.
But she lacks the necessary zest to give her role
as the movie extra who has a brainstorm the full-
ness it needs. She is playing the part of a countess
in a movie when her fiancee breaks off his en-
gagement to her. Instead of playing her part as she
should, she breaks loose with a fellow player in an
expensive car and drives wildly into the night,
eventually landing at a fashionable resort hotel
where she has amusing and exciting adventures
which eventually net her a movie contract and a
reconciliation with her fiancee. Paul Lucas, as the
villain, gives a rather hammish performance, but
in spite of its shortcomings, "The Countess of
Monte Cristo" has attractions that keep it from
being a complete failure. Patsy Kelly is delightfully
entertaining as the fake countess' maid. There are
some good sets, among which are the countess'
hotel suite and the villain's lodge in the mountains.
There is a ,crook who molests mostly everybody,
and both the character and the acting of this' role
are praiseworthy because of their unusual presen-
