Going To
Summer School.. ..
S UMMER is the student's time to re-
lax and enjoy himself. Yet there
is no sense in wasting three months which could be
put to excellent advantage.
An ideal combination of enjoyment, relaxation,
and self-improvement is offered by the University
for its Summer Session.
Every type of athletics which adds to a sum-
mer's enjoyment will be accessible to students. The
University Golf Course, always in fine condition,
the Intramural swimming pool, handball courts,
squash courts, basketball courts, the University
tennis courts, and all the University gymnasiums
will be available. Students who wish to participate
in such sports as tennis, golf, and swimming, will
be allowed the use of an automobile.
For the first seven weeks of the eight-week session
there will be frequent plays given by the Reper-
tory Theater, speeches by members of the out-
standing faculty, and excursions to various points
of interest in this part of the state, such as the
Ford Motor plant at Dearborn, the General
Motors proving ground at Milford, and Put-in-Bay.
Membership of the Union for men students, in
the League for women students, and The Michigan
Daily will be included in the tuition fee. All the
facilities of both- the League and Union will be

available. Dances will be given every week-end at
the League.
Besides many of the University's most eminent
teachers, there will be 32 non-resident profes-
sors on the faculty. Among the most famous vis-
iting educators are Enrico Fermi, professor of the-
oretical physics at Royal University of Rome, Italy,
George E. Nichols, professor of botany at Yale
University and Robert V. Southwell, professor of
engineering science at Oxford, England.
The well-equipped library of the University will
be open all during the Session. Many students
who have been forced to neglect their reading dur-
ing the regular semesters may wisely opportune
themselves by using this opportunity.
Almost all the courses given in the regular semes-
ters will be offered in the Summer Session. This
affords the student the opportunity to make up
credits or enroll in some course which is particu-
larly interesting to him.
Expenses are extremely low in comparison. Tui-
tion will be $34. The cost of board will range

To the Editor: .
Although I only see The Michigan Daily infre-
quently I am always interested in it and what goes
on at the college. I chanced to see your issue of
May 29 and was especially interested in the Soap
Box department with its splendid letter from a
Music Lover.
I certainly agree with him (or her) that it is a
shame the radio is all cluttered up with trashy
music and I can understand just how he felt about
hearing Wagner shamed. It seems to me that
people ought to have better taste and I for one
would like to see something done about it.
It would have been bad enough if it had been the
music of anyone else but when they desecrate
the immortal Wagner that is going too far. I know
just how a Music Lover felt because "Carmen" is
my favorite opera and I like that kind of better
Please consider this my vote in favor of a Mu-
sical Vigilante Society. I think The Daily is to
be congratulated for backing such a fine project,
so please accept my thanks for one.
--Mrs. James Morlandson.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Wagner did not compose
"Carmen." The Daily is not backing any
movement for a Musical Vigilante's Society
and letters to the Editor cannot be construed
as expressing editorial opinion.
To the Editor:
This is to add one more lament to the wailing-
wall chorus which has no doubt been aroused by
your publication of Musical Vigilantes . . . in my
opinion the outstanding example of pseudo-artist
bombast and inane comment which I have read
this year.
If the individual who shields himself behind the
smug, ineffectual and to-all-appearances-insin-
cere title of "Music Lover" establishes himself as
an arbiter of musical propriety . . . then I certainly
feel qualified in rising to the defense of whatever
orchestra he was attempting to describe (with such
gentle charm and with what meticulous English!)
In the first place, the alleged butchering of Wag-
ner's "Liebestod" could not possibly be worse than
the spectacle of some of or so-called symphonies
attempting to produce what is known as "popular
music" . . . . as they do on occasion.
Secondly, the idea of popularizing classical music
(irrespective of the merits of the idea) is by no
means a new one, nor has it been scoffed by all of
our truly great artists. I once heard the great
Jenny Lind sing a popular adaptation (of that
day . . . she was before your time of course) of
one of the arias from La Gioconda, and you may
take my word for it that it was one of the most
beautiful vocal renditions of all time.
Pursuing my first idea further, I cannot help
wondering what Music Lover would have thought
had he heard Martinelli try to sing, in operatic
manner, the first three verses of "Swanee River" .. .
as I did some 16 years ago in Philadelphia! I can
assure you that the much-maligned rendition of
"Liebestod" would have profited by comparison, no
matter how badly done.
I am not as young as I once was, and I am not
particularly fond of what you youngsters call, I
believe, "hot bands." I am very fond, however, of
seeing people mind their own businesses. My sug-
gestion to "Music Lover" is that he confine him-
self in the future to the more innocuous pleasure of
publicly "observing the first robin." I would fur-
ther suggest that he throw away his radio. . . and
spend just as much time annually as possible sop-
ping up the "finer things" so plentifully supplied
by our May Festival, the Choral Union series, etc.,
ad infinitum.
In the meanwhile, I shall devote my own talents
to organizing a personal protection group to be

known as "The Society for the Prevention of Small
Boys Roller-Skating past Study Windows.",
-E. R. McKinlock, Cornell, '07.
To the Editor:
Congratulations on publishing the music lover's
letter! I intend reading it to my Sunday School
class. I think there is so little appreciation of the
finer things in this generation.
In 57 years following Ann Arbor art events I
think the Musical Vigilantes is the most splendid
Put me down, for one, as a charter member of the
-Mrs. Minnie R. Smith.
To the Editor:
It is very amusing to me to see the letter which
the Music Lover sent in. He should appreciate
that not all people have the same tastes, and to
some the music of Wayne King is very enjoyable.
What are the dials for on his radio, anyway; if he
doesn't like a station he can turn it off.
I might remind Music Lover that Mr. King
probably makes three times as much a day broad-
casting as Music Lover does in a year, which he
wouldn't do if he spent all his spare time writing
letters to the editor.
Let us not forget Alexander Hamilton's famous
statement; "life, liberty and the pursuit of hap-
piness." That means liberty for people to pursue
the type of musical enjoyment they like, to viz.,

A..S.,'7, and J.W.R., '36, send in the fol-
lowing contribution entitled:
Pulchritude abounds in Angell Hall tonight.
Just look around you, to the left, to the right.
Wherever you may look; wherever you may gaze,
The beauteous feminine faces send forth lethal
So study at home if mind's dimness you must light,
For pulchritude abounds in Angell Hall tonight. .
Society went on trial before a jury made up of
college men and women in New York recently, and
was found guilty on six.
Guilty of:
1. Inadequate instruction to youth on the choice
of a mate.
2. Forcing youth, because of dearth of jobs, to
postpone matrimony.
3. Employing workers at low wages.
4. Surrounding youth with hazards to morals,
such as obscene literature and gambling devices.
5. Maintaining a harsh attitude toward former
6. Incomplete use, for recreation, of public
Not guilty of:
1. Providing inadequate facilities for youth
2. Maintaining inadequate employment service.
3. Allowing racial and national prejudice to
interfere with employment.
The jury disagreed on the charge: society fails
to give adequate sex education to young people.
The Minnesota Daily remarks about the trial:
"It is a creditable thing for youth to put society
on trial, if -it remembers and rectifies those crit-
icisms when it takes control. More creditable
would be youth's putting itself on the stand. Is it
preparing itself in every way possible? Is it mak-
ing the most of its opportunities? Does it choose
its leadership wisely? Is it forming an intelligent
basis for evaluating people and movements? Is it
widening the range of its perceptions?"
Here is a story coming from the Cornell
campus. A student, under the influence of too
much liquor, was driving up to a fraternity
house. There was large tree right at the curb,
and he drove up with drunken ego to park the
car, only succeeding in hitting the tree with
a resounding thwack, and bouncing back sev-
eral feet. Nothing daunted, he drove forward
again, only to hit the tree once more. This
went on for about ten minutes, damaging the
tree and tho front of the car no end, but not
fazing our bibulous friend's insistence in the
least. But finally he reached the end of his
tether. Utterly disgusted, he snapped off the
ignition, stepped out of the car. and muttered
resignedly to himself, "Sno use. Pm lost in a
damn forest."

SOME NEW DEAL political aides of high rank
do not brush aside lightly the suggestion that
a new twist of the long and dramatic affair of
"Friend Frank" Roosevelt and "Friend Al" Smith
may be ripening for next year. They seem none
too sure, privately at least, that Smith could not
be induced to head a fusion Conservative ticket and
have another try at the presidency.
No New Dealer will talk for publication in this
vein, of course. The White House probably would
step violently on the toes of any who did. Yet,
privately, some fellow Democrats who have known
him long believe it-possible Smith might listen to
fusion candidacy proposals if they came to him
strongly enough supported.
If so, it will be the first instance anyone can re-
call of a Smith "bolt" from party regularity. He
may have been perilously near it in '32 after
Roosevelt's nomination at Chicago; but in the
end he teamed up and did high service in New
England, New Jersey and New York for the Roose-
velt-Garner ticket.
LOOKING BACK over Smith's political career,
it is difficult to imagine his being willing to
run merely as a stalking-horse candidate, to lure
Conservative Democratic votes away from "Friend
Frank" next year for the purpose of opening the
way to the White House for a regular Republican
candidate. The first hurdle the fusionists would
probably have to take in an effort to draft the
brown derby to their uses would be to convince
its wearer of their sincerity and that there was a
real chance to elect him. He would not seem to
have much to gain otherwise. Al Smith needs no
advertising for-private business purposes.
Something like a definite split between Eastern
and Western Republicans and abandonment by
eastern and Western Republicans and abandon-
ment by eastern party leaders of all hope of reviv-
ing the G.O.P. organization not only for '36 but
even for '40, would seem to be a necessary pre-
liminary to a real fusion plan to be headed
by a Democratic conservative. At a guess, Smith
and his intimates are getting more amusement
than anything else to date out of the fusion talk.
THE BUSINESS of practical politics has not
changed very much since 1912, however the
cast and the issues may have shifted. In that
year and against the dominating personality of
