Carrothers To
Address Negro
Education Body
PIincipals Of Institutions
For Colored Students
Will Meet In Atlanta
Prof. George E. Carrothers, director
of the Bureau of Co-operation with
Educational Institutions, will address
a meeting Wednesday in Atlanta of
principals and presidents of south-
ern, educational institutions for ne-
groe%. The purpose of the meeting
is~to form an accrediting association
for the negro schools of the South.,
"The institutions for colored per-
sons in the South always have had
trouble placing their graduates and
transferring students in other schools
which are members of some accredit-
ing association," Professor Carroth-
ers stated. "It is for this reason that
they are attempting to form an ac-
crediting association of their own,
which if they are successful will mean
that the University, and other mem-
bers of the North Central and other
accrediting associations, will accept
their credits."
President Thomas E. Jones of Fiske
University, Nashville, Tenn., is the
presiding officer of the meeting. Wed-
nesday evening Professor Carrothers
will address the meeting on "The
Problems of Educational Standards
in Colleges and Secondary Schools."
hispectors Fail To
Approve_5 Schools
Of the 60 high schools in the State
visited since June 1, 55 have been
continued on the approved list, Prof.
George E. Carrothers, director of the
Bureau of Cooperation with Educa-
tional Institutions, announced yes-
terday.
"Of the remaining five," Professor
Carrothers said, "four were dropped
because of inefficiency and the other
withdrew voluntarily."
Professor Carrothers said that there
are about 400 high schools in the
State on the University list. Some
of them, because of exceptional effi-
ciency, are inspected only once every
two or three years.
A report of the schools visited is
submitted by the director of the bu-
reau to the University Committee,
on Accredited Schools, which takes
final action on the directors recom-
mendations.

AT THE

MAJESTIC
"THE PAINTED
VEIL"

A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer production
starring Greta Garbo with Herbert
Marshall, George Brent, Warner Oland,
Jean Hersholt, and Katherine Alex-
ander, from the novel by Somerset
Maugham. Hal Roach's comedy "Done
in Oil" and newsreel.I
It is a new Garbo, changed much
for the better, that gives us "The
Painted Veil." The famous Swedish
actress that has become a well-
known figure on the American screen
in 19 pictures before this one, is far
more impressive in her latest effort
than she has been for some time.

and its adaption to the screen is
equally fine, It is a simiple story of an
l Austrian girl who marries a British
doUctor, practicing aimong the unf or-
tulnates of the Orient. She is tornl
between the true love of her hus-
band, and the infatuation that arises
from the attentions of a member of
the British embassy.
The important acting in the pic-
ture is restricted to three people. Miss
Garbo as Katherine: Herbert Mar-
shall as Doctor Walter Fane, her hus-
band; and George Brent as "the
other man." Miss Garbo naturally
tends to monopolize the picture. As
we have already said, her acting is
simple, direct, and most effective.
Herbert Marshall is an adequate con-
tinuation of the long line of famous
leading men that have graced the
Garbo pictures of the past. His role of
the young British medical scientist
is well carried out.
Even more restricted, however, is
the work of George Brent, a young
Irishman who has been doing rather
well for himself in recent pictures.
As the member of the British diplo-
matic service, and the other man, he
gets little chance to do anything,
but what he does is well executed.
The picture is much more than we
had expected. Miss Garbo has done
justice to a fine story. --C.A.E.

We are inclined to like Miss Gar-
bo's performance because of one im-
pressive detail. For the picture at
least, she forgets that she is the Great
Garbo, and settles down to give a
splendid performance. She goes about
portraying the role of the unsoph-
isticated daughter of an Austrian
scientists who rises to heights of emo-
tion as the wife of an English doc-
tor stranded in the hinterland of
China, in the way of the experienced
actress, but without that "know it
all" that has hindered her work in
the past.
Somerset Maugham has written a
masterful story in "The Painted Veil"

censorship of student criticism. Above is shown the sign tacked on the

ization of protesting journalism students were Sam Montague (left),
