cpmpanied by Alice, her maid, awaits Edgar. He
informs her that he has been ordered to France.
Before leaving, he proposes approaching Ashton
and forever ending the feud existing between their
respective families but Lucia dissuades him know-
ing that his efforts would be futile and result in
their being parted forever. They pledge their
fidelity in the lovely duet "Borne on the sighing
Breeze" and part.
Act II. An anteroom in the Castle. Ashton,
desirous of improving his fortune by marrying
Lucia off to Sir Arthur Bucklaw, intercepts Ed-
gar's correspondence. He forges, in the latter's
handwriting, a letter which indicates that Lucia
has been betrayed by her lover. The girl, deeply
grieved, finally consents to the marriage.
Scene II. The Main Hall of the Castle. A
great assemblage of knights and ladies are on
hand to witness the wedding. Lord Ashton ex-
plains the pale, agitated condition of the bride, by
declaring that she still mourns her mother. As
Lucia finishes signing the marriage papers, Edgar,
sword in hand, stalks boldly into the room. At
this highly dramatic moment, begins the famous
sextette whose majestic rhythm, flowing melody,
gorgeous harmony and soaring climax have madej
it tremendously popular. Ashton and Edgar lunge
at each other with drawn swords but are re-'
strained. Lord Henry demands an explanation
for the intrusion and displays the signed marriage
contract. Incensed, Edgar turns upon Lucia,
curses her and her family and rushes from the
Act III Scene I. The Tower of the Ravenswood
Castle. Ashton challenges Edgar to a duel at
dawn. Against the background of a terrific storm,
in a duet, they pray for tlhe early arrival of mor-
ning and the attendant vengeance.
Scene II. The Hall at Lammermoor Castle. The
feasting and merrymaking at the castle ceases as
Raymond enters and announces that Lucia has
gone mad and slain her husband. The demented
girl appears. Imagining she is being married to
her lover ,Edgar, she sings happily and half-sadly.
Becoming agitated, her voice rises higher and
higher until, finally, she falls swooning into Alice's
Scene III. The Tombs of the Ravenswoods. Ed-
gar standing among the graves of his ancestors,
sings a t o u c h i n g soliloquy. Instinctively his
thoughts turn to Lucia and he denounces her ve-
hemently. In the midst of his imprecations, he
beholds a train of mourners approaching and in-
quires as to their purpose. Even as they tell him
of Lucia's dying condition, a bell at the castle
tolls out the funeral knell.
Finally he realizes the tragedy of it all and
drawing a dagger from his belt plunges it into
his heart. Alternately imploring Heaven's for-
giveness and avowing his love for Lucia, he falls
to the ground dead.

The Spring Parley
And Student Thinking .
JOINTLY sponsored by representa-
tive students from all groups on
he campus, the Annual Spring Parley will open
[arch 2 and continue three days. Its expressed
im is to break down the long-standing and tra-
itional barrier that exists between students and
aculty, and allow them, through exchange of
leas on important issues of the day, to mutually
We feel that the Spring Parley is one of the
lost worthy annual events held upon the Mich-
;an campus and, in the past three years, has ac-
omplished the iost real good in the line of freer
rid more productive relationships. Too many of
s have failed to realize that one of the best means
develop intellectually is through exchange of
ewpoints, but those who have taken part in the
ast parleys are emphatic converts to the idea.
This year the general topic to be discussed is
What Can We Believe." We feel that, in these
mes of variable beliefs, no other topic could be
lore timely or have more potentialities educa-
onally than the one selected. The committee in
large, composed of prominent faculty members
rd students, has been planning for the past
veral months to make the parley this year even
tore outstanding and successful than those in the
ast, which attracted so many people that stand-
ig room only was left. Soon the general com-
ittee composed of more than 120 students and
aculty members will form around the con-
nuation group and complete plans for this year.
We predict that the Parley will set a new record
or interest and accomplishments, and definitely
;and behind the movement as one in the direction
f greater student thinking.

STATE REGULATION AND THE FEDERAL
State regulation of the utilities has been largely
set at naught by resort to the Federal courts. The
Federal courts offered an escape from the jurisdic-
tion of the states, with the result that regulation
of the utilities everywhere broke down.
In January, 1930, President Roosevelt, then the
Governor of the State of New York, sent this
special message to the New York Legislature:
The recent decision in the Federal Court in
the Southern District of New York permitting
the New York Telephone Co. drastically to
raise its telephone rates brings to the fore in
a striking way the whole question of inter-
ference by the United States courts with the
regulatory powers of our Public Service Com-
It means that hearings and trials which
rightfully should be held before our Public
Service Commission or before State courts are,
by a scratch of the pen, transferred to a
special master appointed by the Federal Court.
The State regulatory body . . . is laughed at
by the utility seeking refuge with a special
master, who is unequipped by experience and
training, as well as by staff and assistants, to
pursue that searching inquiry into the claims
of the company which the consuming public
is entitled to demand. The special master be-
comes the rate-maker; the Public Service
Commission becomes a mere legal fantasy.
This power of the Federal Court must be
The Indiana Legislature some years ago memor-
ialized Congress, asking that the utilities be for-
bidden resort to the Federal courts until they had
exhausted the state courts. The memorial in-
sisted that the state courts were competent to
judge all controversies between the utilities and
regulatory bodies, as they could be trusted to pre-
serve to the utilities the constitutional guarantee
of due process.
It remained for the New Deal to do something,
about a situation which had at last made the
utility issue a factor in presidential elections. The
Johnson bill, which has passed the Senate and is
now in the House, would debar the utilities from
Federal courts in valuation and rate disputes
until they have exhausted the state courts. It
would deprive them of a choice which has too
often enabled them to take the easier way. Senator
Johnson of California, one of the progressive Re-
publicans who supported Mr. Roosevelt in 1932, is
the author of the bill. I
Gov. Landon of Kansas, whose State has en-
gaged for years in a struggle with the Doherty in-
terests, says the Johnson bill "is the most con-
structive piece of legislation in the last decade."
In our judgment, the utilities would be wise to
support it. Regulation is their one hope of escape
from public ownership.

Mr. Merchant - Every day your sales people hear this thought expressed by your
customers - "that's just what I want -it was advertised in The Daily." Perhaps
you've heard it - heard it so many times that you don't think it unusual. But it is
unusual if you stop to think about it, for you'll find that only in rare cases will your
customers remember other mediums where your advertising appeared and offer that
information voluntarily. People remember Michigan Daily advertising because The
Michigan Daily has sold itself to its readers -sold itself by day after day service
on news, forthright editorial opinion and information. We contend that a news-
paper that is held in such esteem is your best advertising medium - that it would
be well to concentrate your advertising in
