New Deal
For The League?.. .
T IS encouraging to learn that the
merit system is being seriously con-
sidered by the Women's League. The choice of
Sndergraduate officers through the collusion of
political factions serving no purpose but the pub-
Licizing of fatuous members' names has long since
established its worthlessness. Members of the
League are to be complimented for their recently
expressed desire for a New Deal.
The League has been singularly fortunate in
hat even under its present unsound election sys-
em it has managed in the past to achieve, by and
1arge, fairly capable leadership. But the fact
ithat chance and campus politics have worked
satisfactorily so far is no guarantee that they will
ontinue to do so. In fact, if faith may be put
n the law of averages and the, past experience not
6f Just the League but of all student govern-
tkent, it may be safely predicted that the League,
f it continues its present election method, is rid-
ng for a fall.
The league was built to serve the campus, not
o provide sinecures for co-ed politicians. Only
he mI t system of choosing officers is in genuine
harmony With this ideal.
.Reader To Talk
Dn Esperanto'...
InN connection with the recent steady
" ~growth of Esperanto many people
ave looked with disfavor oi the proposal to in-
roduce a new language into the present babel of
0orld tongues, and others have criticised such a
anguage on the basis of its artificialty.
It seems unfortunate that a misunderstanding
ias arisen in connection with an instrument pos-
essing so much potential value; in a University
ecture to be given today Prof. C. L. Meader will
attempt to clear up some of the misconceptions
concerning Esperato.
Both the true purpose and the coming value of
such a language deserve to be stressed. In the
irst place, Esperanto is not designed to take the
glace of any other language, but to supplement
hose that exist at present. Secondly, it is truly
a scientific language in that it employs a direct
and simple set of rules that are without excep-
tion. Thirdly, it is aimed to supply an urgent
heed for a uniform and concise international

nedium of intercourse.
No psychological basis is more effective in set-
tins up a barrier of misunderstanding and dis-

HENRIBERGSON, eminent French thinker who
has been granted a niche of no little import-
ance in the annals of philosophy, has written
"Morals and Religion", in 'which, as The Nation
puts it, he has taken "the same critical guns
which he formerly trained on scientism and turn-
ed them on traditional ethic and i'eligion." This,
as The Nation points out, iakes it impossible
longer "to impute to Bergsonisin the motve of
attacking science for the sake of de'ending re-
ligion." This book, to be issued by Heiny HoIt,
and Company in May, will be illustrative of the
author's power of presenting abstract ideas in
language which can be comprehended by the av-
erage reader, and thus will have a d6onble appeal-
to the layman and to the specialist.
The Bergson work is probably the most im-
portant item in Holt an'd Company's spring cata-
logue. Other books of interest are there, how-
ever. I have culled from the list the following:
S. 0. S.: A Book of Sea Adventure, by David
Masters. For February release : $2.50. A galaxy
of true yarns of the sea, expressing "seamanship,
courage, and endurance in the face of danger."
The White Hills, by Cornelius Weygandt. For
April release: $2.50. Atmospheric stuff of beauty,
charm, and humor in the White Mountains of
New Hampshire. "The book is connected with
the externals of life."
The Quest for Security, by I. M. Rubinow. For;
April release: $3.75. A timely discussion of pres-
ent day problems of accident and unemployment
for the wage-earner, social insurance, and related
matters. Mr. Rubinow is "a pioneer in the fieldj
in America, a man who has embodied in this1
volume the results of thirty years of thinking anda
struggling for social insurance."
Insights into Modern Hinduism, by Harvey D.
Griswold. For March release: $2.00. Objective1
information combined with personal glimpses into
the minds of prophets and religious leaders.'
There is also a group of three novels-The
Second Day, translated from the Russian of Ilya
Ehrenburg, Miralce of Sinai, by Osbert Sitwell,
and Bitter Bond, by Nicolia Gubsky. There is no
telling about a novel.

In Review
N RESPONSE to an oft-repeated question, yes,
it was a good concert. In response to an oft-
stated comment, "of course after the cossacks--,"
but these voices are young men's voices and do
not have the weight that a more mature group
would have. In response to the oft-suggested
wish that the concert had been made up of some-
thihg else: what was the matter with this one?
(Since Sunday many people have had suggestions)
For me, at least, the concert had life and inter-
est. The first group began with Luther's "Mighty
1ortress" which needs more than mumbo-jumbo
to instill significance, so familiar is this chorale.
It gave the program an excellent send-off, with
splendid attack, and enthusiasm. I was disap-
pointed in the predominance of organ, which at
times destroyed the unity of the effect of the
sinding. But something like that is merc chance
and hard to predict. The Agincourt song was
better balanced by the piano accompaniment. The
Iivine Praise was decidedly harmonic in its na-
ture, and in the second part the harp accom-
paniment was a mere expansion of the harmonic
background, back and forth, while the voices
The addition of instruments to the voices was
in the interest of color, procured a broader effect,
and moved away from the usual run of Glee-Club
material, and that is a sufficient reason for its
introduction. Barber-shop combinations can be
heard any day on the good-old-standy-bys, via
the radio. And if you're with me this far, I don't
believe the audience liked the General Booth,
and I don't know why not. At least the ap-
plause was abrupt, and not very enthusiastic (the
balcony and first floor were well-filled). To me,
the General Booth was exciting and a little awe-
inspiring. The dynamic ups and downs were ob-
served, the diction was above average, the rhythm
and syncopation defined, an especially good sec-
tion on the last several lines occurred where the
bass line came out with resonance. In the mean-
time, the assisting instruments did their parts,
the organ, with interludary purpose, grave and
tender, the trumpet and trombone and the drums
with "pictorial" purpose. It was a masculine
On the contrary, the harp ensemble was fem-
inine. The music was ringing, six harps can pro-
duce a goodly amount of sound, but hardly sub-
stantial, since by its very nature the tone is not
a sustained one, nor was the music vigorous, but
rather delicate and pleasant.
After this interim of easy-on-the-eyes and easy-
on-the-ears, the men gave a rousing group of
folk-songs which, startitig out well with Rantin
Rovin' Robin, and The Dead Men lagged slightly
with the tricky Wassail Song (which, by the way,
was done here some years ago by the English
Singers) and picked up again with the Jolly
Drummers and the Hundred Pipers. The en-
semble work in this group hung together; the
parts had individuality, though there's never too
much basso.
"Beat! Beat! Drums!" is another song that
gets away from the quartet arrangement; it is for
unison voices, with brass and percussion accom-
paniment. The voices were surprisingly not
drowned out, (it was a draw only at moments),
but came forth with resonance and strong deci-
sion, building up to a grand climax. Opposing
rhythms between voices and brasses, the metric
divisions, and the words made this difficult, and
the glee club rose to the situation and had it
well in control. The audience clapped for more,
so Logan's "Lift Thine Eyes," popular and pretty,
finished up the afternoon's performance.
This is the effect of the concert as it appeared
to me. It may have been full of slides and omis-
sions, wrong notes and miscues, but the effect was
of energy, interest, effort, and good-will, and not
in the least, an appreciation of what was going on,

Screen Reflections
"It Happened One Night"
Peter .................... Clark Gable
Ellie................ Claudette Colbert
Albert ................ Walter Connolly
Shapely ................ Roscoe Kerns
This picture is one that is capable of putting
most anyone in a good humor. The humorous
incidents border on the type of humor seen in
"Lady For A Day" and are highly entertaining.
Director Frank Capra has taken full advantage
of the situation created by the plot and has in-
troduced several episodes that are really clever.
Ellie Albert marries a front-page-aviator with-
out the consent of her millionaire father. She
runs away and starts a journey from Miami, Fla.
to New York to King Wesely, her husband, and the
things that take place on the trip make her
change her mind about her aviator husband.
She meets a newspeper reporter by the name of
Peter Bern and Peter has her at his mercy in
that she can't do a thing until he has a story
for his paper about her "exciting trip to her lover
in New York." Many a humorous episode takes
place during their companionship from Miami
to New York and before she realizes it she has
found that he is the man she should have married
in the first place.
You will enjoy the conversation on the bus be-
tween Ellie and Shapely: "Shapely is the name,
Miss. Say, you've got class, believe you me!
You're lucky to have chosen me to sit with..
the average person on such a trip isn't anything to
write home about, but boy! Shapely can pick
'em the boys say. You aren't sayin' much." El-
lie: "You seem to have plenty to say without me
saying anything." Shapely : "Ummm ! That's
what I like ... a snappy comeback just like that!"
Bern: "Excuse me, but would you mind trading
seats so I might sit with my wife!"
The fine characterization of Shapely by Ros-
coe Kearns is also good when Bern pretends that
he is a gangster and had better watch his step,
whereupon Shapely makes a prompt exit. The
conversation when Peter is carrying Ellie across
the river and they argue whether the family of
the Alberts knew how to play piggy-back or not,
and the conversation between father and daughter
as they march down the isle at her wedding will
likewise amuse you.
Only added attraction is the News, which isn't
out of the ordinary, but then again, anything
more would have undoubtedly spoiled the fine
mental state created by the feature.
