THE ART CINEMA LEAGUE1
"THE LAST MILLIONAIRE" and
"THE FIREMAN"
A REVIEW
By C. B. CARPENTER
R ENE CLAIRE'S light-veined political satire, The
Last Millionaire, presented last Saturday night
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre by the Art
Cinema League, again clearly shows the difference
between the French and the American cinema.
It exemplifies the French superiority in the matter
of artistic conception and its inferiority in regard
to mechanical details, such as photography, sound,
and even direction.
The Last Millionaire, is an almost impossible
story, entirely fantastic, which pictures a poverty-
stricken mythical kingdom in the land of some-
where-across-the-ocean headed by an ageing but
alert queen who bargains with a French multi-
millionaire for $300,000,000 in return for the hand
of her beautiful daughter.
After his arrival in the country the pompous
millionaire is accidentally hit on the head and
therefrom becomes an imbecillic dictator making
a series of absurdly amusing laws, such as forbid-
ding the use of chairs, prohibiting any talking,
requiring all the men to wear short pants, and
holding required daily setting up exercises for the
populace in the palace courtyard. The state mu-
sicians, he discovers, are unable to compose him
a new national anthem because they know only
one tune - the old anthem - which they adapt
in mood, tempo, and style to every occasion, and
incidentally play repeatedly throughout the pic-
ture.
The milionaire, even in his right mind, knows
less about government than the light-headed fan-
tastic mite of a queen who runs - not walks -
around the palace as if she were constantly being
chased by an imaginary band of revolutionists.
And the other characters are almost as imaginary,
each one full of comic idiosyncrasies which lend
their bit to the entire whimsically caricatured
whole of the picture. Rene Claire has devised bril-
liant satirical material with hilarious and penetrat-
ing potentialities. If Mussolini or Hitler were to
see The Last Millionaire they would blush with em-
barrassment, but since they both, we are told, ap-
preciate good music, they would enjoy the cleverly
integrated instruments of repetition, variation,
counterpoint, and coloring which are very evident
in the picture. The repeating orchestra, the jittery
queen, the sleepy detective on whom the millionaire
relys so completely, and the ridiculous demands of
the government are all subtle but lucid manipula-
tions of the same satirical theme, and if The Last
Millionaire had a quicker movement, a more selec-
tive continuity, and a better mechanical execution,
it could surpass almost any recent American
comedy.
The revival of Charlie Chaplin's The Fireman
is rather unfortunate since it is unquestionably one
of his minor pictures, only about two reels long,
and empoying pants-kicking and water-squirting
as the most prominent laugh-provokers. Those
who think Modern Times is old fashioned, how-
ever, should look for a chance to see The Fireman.
It is typical of the old, silent comedy and might
now be retitled "Anything for a Laugh," all at the
expense of the audience.
As Others See It

Dormitories And
The Working Student.. ..
TrIHE ADVANTAGES of a men's dor-
mitory building program, already
supported by almost everyone connected with the
University, become more numerous and apparent
the more one contemplates the changed situation
which it would bring to the campus.
Those now employed on the campus in boarding
houses and restaurants are acquainted with condi-
tions of employment: little pay for the amount of
work, unclean conditions in many instances, little
responsibility on the part of the employer and no
hope of permanence of positions for the students.
But the seriousness of the entire situation lies
in the fact that nothing can be done to remedy
it. One can only pray that jobs will hold out.
The almost complete dependence for boarding fa-
cilities upon outside agencies practically prevents
the students, as well as the University, from doing
anything to ameliorate conditions.
Probably the most serious of these conditions,
from the standpoint of the student, is the lack
of permanence of jobs. Student employment
can not be considered in the same light as em-
ployment outside the realm of the University for
the reason that the student is primarily here for an
education and not to work for subsistence. If con-
ditions force the student to work, the educational
facilities are lessened for him. And if a student
is thrown out of work his educational future be-
comes even more dark in the face of his impending
economic crisis. The benefits of coming to college
are largely lost. College means little more to him
than a tough place to get enough to eat.
This situation has assumed more serious propor-
tions on the campus this week because of the clos-
ing of one restaurant which has meant the loss of
jobs for almost 50 students. Undoubtedly as much
as possible will be done by the University to get
these students jobs but the institution is placed
in an unfortunate position when the burden of
helping those students is thrust upon its shoulders
although it cannot possibly be held responsible for
the conditions causing the unemployment.
If dormitories are established on the campus,
many of the problems and defects now existing in'
relation to the employment situation will be amel-
iorated. We do not assume, however, the naive po-
sition that all will be right if dormitories are built.
But more security will be afforded working stu-
dents, better working conditions will prevail and
greater responsibility will be assumed by the Uni-]
versity.
Today's
Treaties..
N THE PRESENT European crisis
one of the most disappointing and
disheartening trends is the utter disregard for
treaty obligations and disrespect for international
law. Treaties are apparently negotiated now only
for protection until the time is reached when they
can be disregarded with safety.
However, the disrespect for international law
is not directly the result of the fickleness of man-
kind or its lack of moral responsibility. As the
liberal political writers of the 19th century pointed
out, most treaties include germs for future wars.
The present crisis in Europe, which is now
almost a powder magazine, can be interpreted as
a direct result of an unjust and impossible treaty.
No nation could take the severe beating Germany
suffered and submit to the terms it had to
accept, America, Great Britain, France or any
other great nation would very probably be up in
arms and willing to abrogate its obligations if its
very existence was threatened, just as the Germans,

TO WORDS, THE GARDENERS
Here, good words, is my sorrow;
And cuttings of meadow-rue,
Sturdy saplings of willow,
And cypresses, green and new.
Slips of empurpled pansies,
Wistaria, mauve and white,
Wet with the tears that heaven
Wept for a day and night.
Cover my grief with beauty
Planted in richest loam,
That neighbors will pause, and wonder,
And take a flower home.

For the benefit of those who rely upon this de-
partment for their news, it should be said that the
third jury in the case of David Lamson, who wrote
"We Who Are About to Die," .disagreed, 9 to 3 for
conviction, and Lamson is free.

According to Mrs. Margaret Hess, of Morocco,
Ind., it wasn't Eli Whitney, but Mrs. Greene,
General Greene's wife, who invented the cotton gin.
It seems that Whitney was boarding with Mrs.
Greene. This, though Mrs. Hess didn't say so,
was in Savannah, Ga. Whitney was born in Mass-
achusetts, but later lived in New Haven. Gin or not,
he invented Whitney Avenue, New Haven, better
known as the street Old Bully Phelps dwells on.
For that matter, it was Queen Isabella, Co-
lumbus's landlady, who discovered this country.

Congress Sees Red

LAST SPRING CONGRESS grunted and groaned
and gave forth the District of Columbia teach-
ers'-oath bill. It was proposed by Mr. Blanton of
Texas and slipped through in the annual appro-
priations bill for the district. According to its
provisions, every salaried employe of the district's
schools upon receipt of his pay check must sign
an oath that he has neither taught nor advocated
communism since receiving his last check. Thus
the Board of Education has a monthly check-up
on the "red menace" in its faculties. Janitors and
charwomen receive a good old double-check, for
they are paid every two weeks.
The bill was greeted by loud guffaws from the
press, with the exception of William Randolph
Hearst, red-baiter extraordinary and ardent advo-
cate of America First. Ludicrous legislation from
the present Congress was no surprise, but this little
bit was the tops. It was a fascist document com-
parable to the best efforts of our neighbor B.
Mussolini. The one redeeming feature of the bill
is that recalcitrants are merely discharged, and
not exiled.
In the days of ancient Rome, fortunate youths
were educated in Greece. There, as disciples of
Plato they wandered in Attic shade on the banks
of the Ilissus. Today the Italian youth is given a
wooden gun and marshalled in columns to declare
allegiance to the state. With the continued snout-
ings of Congress, a like end is in view for the United
States. Perhaps, at some future date, our faculties
will be chosen from the nucleus of the Liberty
League, and Edgar Hoover's Public Enemy list com-
piled from Who's Who by Mrs. Dilling.
A campaign to raise $375,000 for the University
in Exile, composed of Nazi refugees, has been start-

Benito Mussolini,strong man of
Italy, was near death today. He had
just emergedafrom the Congress of
Surgeons, and had raised his arm
in salute to the plaudits of the multi-
tude, when aswoman pressed a re-
volver into his very face and fired.
At that very moment, Mussolini, as is
has habit, threw back his head; the
bullet passed through his nostrils
and with a quick step backward, the
Fascist premier put his hand to his
face and drew it away covered with
blood.
