H ISTORY, REALLY an intensely
dramatic story, by dint of incessant
rote from texts has become for many students
a wearisome and remote set of facts apart from
our own experience.
Realizing that the motion picture is the ideal
medium for the presentation of visual illustrative
material, the Oriental Institute of the University of
Chicago, the most outstanding archeological foun-
dation in the world, produced "The Human Adven-
ture," a gigantic film which will be shown here
Oct. 18 and 19 in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Over three years were spent by the Institute in
filming the 32,000 feet of film. This air cruise into
history will bring to Michigan students a vivid
picturization of the romance that is attached
to man's rise from savagery to his present state
"Faculty members of the University of Chicago
and newspaper men sat pop-eyed last week in the
University's Oriental Institute," says the News-
week. "Before them the panorama of the human
race was unrolled on the screen. It was a private
view of 'The Human Adventure,' a film showing
how the secrets of dead empires are brought to
light by archeologists."
"The earth cools from a volcanic, whirling mass
into land and water, plains and oceans. Prehis-
toric beasts range the new plains; the glaciers
creep over them and creep back; man rises and
gains mastery over fire, tools of flint and finally
metal; tills the land, sails the sea and finally the
air," pictures the Cleveland Plain Dealer, in de-
scribing the film to its readers. "With the whole
story sketched briefly, the film moves into its major
portion, an airplane journey to the lands which
were the cradle of civilization, Egypt, Palestine,
Syria, Anatolia, Iraq, and Persia. The story of their
rise to power and civilization is then described
through the excavations and discoveries of eight
of the Institute's expeditions."
The fact that students of history will be re-
quired to attend this feature may prejudice it in the
eyes of students who have suffered through too
many compulsory assignments. Probably, in spite
of that, "The Human Adventure" will serve to
show the value of the movies in education by its
challenge to modern student interests.

A professor at the University of Chicago was
giving a series of lectures on Gothic. Just
beginning to speak one morning at the be-
ginning of the semester he was -interrupted
by a student raising his hand:
"Is this French 2?," the student questioned.
"No this is Gothic," said the professor re-
turning to his lecture.
After a few minutes the student raised his
hand. "It says in this booklet that French 2
is given in this room at this hour."
"Can't help it," said the professor, "This is
The student raised his hand again about ten
"What now?," asked the professor.
"Are you Miss Simmons?"
The professor then discontinued his lecture
and had the student marched out of the room.
No one can say that the students at the Uni-
versity of California are not full of brotherly love
and co-operation. For the benefit of those that
like to expend the minimum of effort a Daily
Trojan columnist kindly lists the "pipe" courses.
The best bet, it seems, is a course in tea room
A sign is reported to hang in the girls' dorm-
itory at Radcliffe College which bluntly reads:
"If you need a man after 10 o'clock call the
janitor." It seems to me the sign should not
stop right there. It should at least add direc-
tions on what to do in case the janitor's
wife is around.

The faculty of the Florida State College for
Women has at last consented for their charges
to attend dances with members of the stronger
sex. Dancing with men will be permitted in all
sorority houses and in dormitory parlors every
Friday and Saturday evenings.
A professor at the University of Maryland
during a history lecture said, "Let us take
France for instance-"
"Why not, she took us for plenty," a voice
from the rear of the room piped up.
Collegians at the University of Wisconsin no
longer need to leave the campus to satisfy their
cravings for bright lights. A private night club
which sells 3.2 beer and wines has been in opera-
tion for a year and officials claim it is a success.

N STATES WHERE there are two
publicly-supported universities, the
athletic rivalry of those two schools is'either
in the most or the least healthy condition imag-
Rivalry between two large colleges in the same
state is bound to be keen. Whether it must be
bitter and rough is another question. There seem
to be plenty of cases to show that it does not.
Suggestions that the University of Alabama and
Alabama Polytechnic Institute resume athletic
relations are roundly opposed in a recent issue of
the Crimson-White, student newspaper of the for-
mer institution. Vaguely citing unfortunate ex-
periences in one or two other states where intra-
state contests were held, the Alabama paper con-
cludes that such a football game would not be
worth the "price" education would have to pay.
Admitting that the meeting would be a great
game, that it would be a big money-maker, and
that both students and citizens are eager to see
it brought about, the Crimson-White is afraid that
future appropriations from the state legislature
would be made on the basis of football partisan-
ship! If such is the case, Alabama's government
must be in sad shape indeed.
In Wisconsin, where Marquette University is not
a state-owned school but stands with the state
university as the only other college of any size,
it had been many years since the two universities
met on the gridiron. Marquette was eager for the.
game. But at Madison, where football teams were
not always as strong as they might be, there was
considerable opposition to risking the prestige of
the university in its own state, It took action on the
part of the state legislature to restore football
relations, and since, perhaps only because Wis-
consin has won all the games, all has gone well.
Aside from the prestige argument, the only valid
question seems to be how the rival teams and
partisans will treat each other. Today most of the
rough stuff seems to be out, State's goal post
attack to the contrary notwithstanding. That
episode was the only one to mar perfect relations
over a long period of years, and came as the climax
to a long-awaited and hard-earned victory
Generally, it seems to be in those localities
where state rivalry has been suppressed that it
breaks out in the most obnoxious forms -where

What About Ward?
To the Editor:
Since the opening of the football season, I have
dwelt long and seriously on a matter that touches
me, and should touch every student and faculty
member of this University, deeply.
This is a very cosmopolitan campus, where racial
discrimination is supposedly abolished. But is it?
On Oct. 20 our football team is scheduled to play
Georgia Tech. This team refuses to play a team
with a Negro on its squad. They insist upon Willis
Ward being kept out of the entire game, not be-
cause he is one of the best Michigan players but
because of their prejudice for his race.
Are we as a University of supposedly intelligent,
broad-minded students, going to permit a team
who is evidently not sufficiently liberal-thinking to
dictate to us. In viewing our opinions we say that
we believe in equality of races. Now arises a chal-
lenge as does every great issue. Do we or do we
not have the courage of our convictions.
In conclusion, I ask you, and you might well ask
yourself, as students and members of the faculty,
do ybu intend to permit this very vital situation
to slip by as a necessary evil? Will we allow Willis
Ward to be kept out of the game?
--H. A. Smith.
As Others See It
Students' Football Is Passing
THE STUDENT pulled up his coat collar, dug his
hands deep into his pockets, and left the Col-
orado-Kansas game by way of the ramps, a resent-
ful individual. But he said not a word.
Two years ago he had witnessed the game from
choice seats, reserved, in the center of the west
stadium. From north goal to south the various
teams played, but he saw the teams in action all
Last year he found himself on the east side of
the stadium with the last plays of the game blotted
out by sun spots. He had a reserved seat then; he
was seated near the middle of the playing field.
But even then, all of the advantages of the year
before had been taken away.
This year, half of the choice section reserved for
him last year had been taken away; he could see
but few of the plays at the far end of the field;
-he had come late and lost in the scramble for
choice seats, while fenced away from better seats
in the reserved sections which were empty.
The student turned up his collar to the chill
winds, dug his hands deep into his pockets, and
left through the ramps. He said not a word.
The student's football is passing.

AMONG other "New Deal" novelties still to be
disclosed is what part a navy-trained, navy-
minded President will play in next year's naval
conference. The original Washington treaty will
come up for extension, revamping or abandonment.
The last three presidents, Harding, Coolidge,
and Hoover, all had naval conferences to deal
with. None was especially qualified by previous
experience or natural bent for personal considera-
tion of the technical complexities involved. His
engineering background gave President Hoover,
perhaps, more of a grasp of that difficult phase of
such negotiations than had Presidents Harding and
Coolidge; but all three relied upon others.
Chief Justice Hughes, then secretary of state,
was the actual central peg of the Washington
conference to a degree that overshadowed even so
great a delegation colleague as Ehhu Root, to say
nothing of Senator Henry Cabot Lodge and Oscar
Underwood. Secretary Stimson, Mr. Hoover's sur-
prise selection for the state portfolio, was the main
spring of the London supplemental conference.
President Coolidge in the abortive three-power
previous effort to round out the Washington
pact, relied on Ambassador Hugh Gibson.
FINAL PHASES of the preliminary talks for next
year's reconsideration of the Washington pact
will get. going in London with Ambassador-at-
Large Norman Davis and his staff of experts
speaking for the United States. There are intima-
tions that President Roosevelt is preparing him-
self for a far more intimate part in the ultimate
conference next year, however, if not in the
London preliminaries, than his White House pred-
ecessors took in their time.
To that end, the President is known to have in-
voked and been assured of the informal aid of
Chief Justice Hughes, the only active survivor of
the original Washington delegation. It is to be
expected that Justice Hughes' first-hand personal
recollections of many phases of that significant
gathering, not available even in the mass of con-
farno antirinmatiot'o -rrlin Q'onrnmenf Ax-
