George Bungle, Moon Mullins, Joe
Palooka, Popeye and a host of other
comic strip characters are deserting
their old positions on syndicated
newspaper staffs and are swarming
into Ann Arbor for\ the Architects'
Ball Friday night.
Peering out of paint pots mounted
in front of each orchestra player,
leering down at costumed party-goers
from vantage. points on the walls of
Gr anger's ballroom, dressed in colors
more fantastic than all the motley
"Harlequins" a n d "Cinderellas"
among the dancers, these comic strip
characters will make the Architects'
Ball what it has always been in the
past, the most festive and colorful
social event of the year.
A huge pallette will form the back-
ground against which Jess Hawkins'
Virginians will play their distinctive
music and-against which Mary Gord-
on will sing her distinctive songs.
Equally huge paint brushes will rear
themselves from out of the center of
the palette, and splashes of color will
lighten the effect of the entire scene.
Other Comic figures
On the right of the orchestra an-
other group of comic strip figures
will be seen, all completely ignoring
the dancers, and all taking an en-
thusiastic interest in drawing. A pos-
sible reason for their enthusiasm may
be observed in the figure of Popeye,
mounted on a pedestal to the rear,
sans clothing.
The "life" drawing class thus por-
trayed will represent the artistic
phases of the architectural student's
classroom activities.
conerville Trolley
On the left of the orchestra, fol-
lowing the curving slope of the pa-
letteand swerving upward as the
end of the palette is reached, the
Toonerville Trolley will be presented,

Perplexing Questions Ai

olution will probably be upon us. Eu-
rope will blow up," he warned.
Repeating his original statement,
he declared "the only solution for you
is more intelligence."
Previous to this "complete let-
down," the discussion had centered
on a question concerning what polit-
ical party the student should belong
to when he is graduated from the
University. The members of the fac-
ulty in their answer could give no
direct solution, and following ques-
tions were also answered in the same
It was only after more than half
the allotted time had elapsed that a
few students became insistent that
their questions be answered directly,
or else by an "I don't know the solu-
tion to your question."
Answering the question, one mem-
ber of the panel said, "Well, you can
line up with the Republican party if
you want to redeem them."
During the early part of the session,
a student asked Prof. I. L. Sharfman,
chairman of the economics depart-
ment, if "economists have hit on any
way to. improve our distributive sys-
The reply was: "Economists do not
agree among themselves, but I do
believe that through a process of
democracy, by legislative actions
based on the most accepted views
of the economists and others, that
our distributive system can in the end
be corrected." He went on to say
that he believed in the power of
democracy to correct any evil and de-

nounced any other form of govern-
mnent, communistic or fascistic, as be-
ing unable to correct any problems
now existing in the United States.
However, he said, all cts of the
Legislature are not just, and it is up
to students today to learn how to
change laws which are not fair.
Professor Carr then asked the chair-
man of the economics departmept

;rful" Katrinka and the rest. This
;cene will represent the engineering
>hases of architectural work.
The decorations for the Ball have
been conceived and designed under
the direction of George Bery, '35A,
and Fred Graham, '35A, co-chairmen
of the decorations committee. Tick-
ets are priced at $2, and are available
at the Union desk. It is expected
that the majority of those attending
will wear costumes, but they are only
optional, and ordinary attire will be
considered appropriate.
Count y Musie
Festival To Be

Held May


More than 600 children have been
rehearsing for the county-wide mu-
sical program for rural schools in
Washtenaw County and Saline vil-
lage. This is the third year for this
music work which is being sponsored
by the music department of-Michigan
State College under the direction of
Miss Mary Ann Collinge, music in-
structor at Michigan State College.
The rehearsals have been held at
University High School, Saline High
School and Chelsea High School. A
three-fold program is being used in
the interest of cultivating music ap-
preciation, participation in songs,
and folk dancing among the rural
children of Washtenaw County. Dur-
ing the past school year, Miss Collinge
has spent three days each month giv-
ing instructions to the teachers of the
county, who, in turn, have taught
their children.
The climax of the year's work will
be the Washtenaw County Rural
School Music Festival to be held Wed-
nesday evening, May 22 in Hill Audi-
torium. At this time the children
will sing the songs while another
group of 200 children will dance the
Virginia Reel in colonial costume.
The Civic Orchestra of Ann Arbor
will, also take part in the program.
Approximately 2,000 children from
all grades have derived benefit from
this program as they have learned
the Virginia Reel folk dance and
songs made up of art songs and folk
songs of the Scotch, Irish and Finn-
ish. The public is invited to attend
the festival, There will be no ad-
I mission charge.
whether he thought the sales tax was
"Emphatically no," was the an-
swer. "That is one of the mistakes
because it places the burden of the
tax on those least capable of bearing
it and reduces effective purchasing
power. But it also brings in much
needed funds to the government,
which is also very important."
In one of the afternoon sessions of
the Parley, which was concerned with
"Academic Freedom" and "Political
Philosophy," the question of expedi-
ency versus protection of the prinicple
of freedom was continually brought
up by the students.
Two points were expressed: The
first, that the rights of freedom of
the speech, press and assembly should
be defended at all costs, "even though
it means reduced appropriations."
The question referred to alleged cen-
sorship of The Daily and also to re-
cent statements regarding the Na-
tional Student League.
The other point of view, presented
by the faculty, was that freedom of
speech and press "does not operate
in ,a vacuum" but has attached to it
definite responsibilities to the Uni-
versity. Recent activities of the Uni-
versity were justified by both Regis-
trar Ira Smith and Professor Sharf-
man on the grounds of expediency.
The University has no desire to check
expression of thought, but in the light
of what unrestricted thought and its
expression would mean to the well-
being of the University, it was thought
desirable temporarily to give up any
abstract principles of freedom for
certain practical ends, advocates of
the second viewpoint implied,
The concluding session of the Par-
ley will be held at 10 a.m. today in
the Union Ballroom.
