sing, but life at the University will go on much the
same as before whether we have Swingout or not.
But the evidence that Michigan seniors, soon to
graduate, are not yet able to conduct themselves I
as mature adults, that they still think an alcoholic
perversion of Swingout is smart would be very dis-
appointing. Swingout will get its final trial next
week. Let's hope that what it symbolizes in the
life of Michigan seniors will be borne out by their1
conduct at the ceremony.

of the sociology department recently exposed
the numbers racket. That is probably rather to
the surprise of many of your readers who have
been doing nothing but reading exposes of this
particular racket in the newspapers for the past
year and seeing numerous movies exposing the
same racket.
nThere may be some question about how late a
ma can write about a subject and have his survey
rate as an 'expose' but I am afraid that in this case
MCarlso stoolate.
It is also a mystery to me why the numbers
racket should be looked upon as such a terrible
thing. After all it affords amusement to its play-
ers at a very low cost You can bet on the numbers
all week for what it costs you to attend one movie
and the return is usually as gratifying, even if it !
is nothing at all. '.
It will probably shock supporters of public morals
to hear that an employee of that horrible Mr.
Hearst, who is so conveniently blamed for every- i
thing, was one of the first to investigate the
numbers game.

Our candidate for the nation's prex.
How many hours is it legal to park a car on the
streets and avenues of New York? We have given
rup the crusade against the newspaper stands that
clutter up sidewalks adjacent to subway entrances.
Newspapers, we have a sinking feeling, don't want
to antagonize anybody who sells copies of news-
papers. Well, they print stories about traffic jams
and motor accidents. Why don't they take up the
subject of all-day parking? Why is virtually every
street in New York narrowed by the width of two
cars? Is it thought that the motor car companies
are in league with the police who fail to arrestj
violators? Is it the merchants of the city and the
motor manufacturers who want this all-day park-
ing? If we owned a newspaper --for that hypo-
thetical pre-bankruptcy edition - we'd get a pho-
tographer to get a picture of any street-West 40th
or West 41st would do - at 11 a.m. At 4 p.m. we'd
get another picture, just to see how many of the
same cars hadn't budged.

Zarathustra. .
7HEN ZARATHUSTRA went one day
upon the campus he was amazed
to see many men building a tower and he spoke
to one of the men and asked him: "Why do you
build this tower?"
And the workman answered: "I do not know."
Then Zarathustra turned to one who was not
a workman, but who carried his worldly belong-
ings on his shoulder and said: "Who are you and
where are you going?"
"I was a professor here," answered he who was
not a working man, "but I am leaving because
I can make more money elsewhere."
"You I advise to be a tower," said Zarathustra.
Next Zarathustra spied a man who was carrying
many books on his back and said to him: "What
books are these that you carry on your back?"
"They are books I have written," answered the
bookish one.
"Ah," said Zarathustra, "Then you are a pro-
fessor."
"No," replied he with the books, "I am an in-
structor, although I have been here for 15 years,
have written 10 books, and have always thought
for myself."
"You I advise to stop thinking for yourself
and to begin saying 'yes'," said Zarathustra.
When Zarathustra turned around he saw one
who was a student and the student was saying,
"I hate Nazis because they hate Jews."
"Must I then hate you because you hate Nazis?"
asked Zarathustra.
A student who was very downcast passed by
and Zarathustra asked: "Why are you so sad?"
"I have received a grade of D in an examina-
tion," answered he with the long puss.
"I do not understand grade's and examination,"
said Zarathustra, "are they sensible?"
"No," replied the student, "but they are very
important."
"I am afraid I do not know the answer to that
one," said Zarathustra.
It was now ten o'clock in the morning and Zara-
thustra met a student who was in a great hurry
and said to him, "Why do you hurry so?"
"I am going over to that restaurant," replied
the hurried one.
"Do you go to the restaurant because you are
hungry?" asked Zarathustra.
"No," said the student, "I go to the restaurant
because all the other people go there at ten o'clock;
not because I am hungry."
"Is that a good reason for going to a restaurant?"
asked Zarathustra. But the student had hurried
out of earshot.
Then did Zarathustra shake his head and once
more he climbed the mountain and went back
to his cave and his animals. He mused for many
moons upon that which he had seen and heard 1
the campus and finally said, "that is the last place
on earth that we shall find the Superman."
Thus spake Zarathustra.

PERCY HUNTER AT THE HAMMOND REUNION
A sticky hot June day in 1935 at Cadiz, Ohio.
Great preparations were going on at a small road-
side inn on the outskirts of Cadiz. One of Cadiz's
prominent sons was coming that day to celebrate
his grandparents' wedding anniversary of 1835.
Of those born in Cadiz, a great many think of
Clark Gable, General Custer, and John Bingham.
But to us of either Hunter blood or in-laws by
the grace of God we were journeying to Cadiz
from our many villages and towns to see once
again our famous family hero Percy Hammond.
And soon we were one of an admiring circle about
him. It is always said that a man is not a hero
t o his family, but this was not true of Percy. How
he laughed when we told him that we had a Percy
Hammond Club in Ohio, composed of admiring
cousins! My husband, Robbins Hunter, could tell
of the old blue clay swimming hole and Percy's
collar, many inches higher than Newark, Ohio,
haberdashers could boast. And of how they hung
it on a convenient twig while the two cousins
and Pop Hart threw water on each other.
The early memories were talked over of Percy
and Grandfather Hunter playing checkers, and
when Percy won the old gentleman always threw
checkers and board at Percy's head . . . Finally
we called "Goodby until next year" and waved
what proved to be our last farewell to Floss and
Percy Hammond. As we turned toward the setting
sun they were the last figures we saw, and the
one hundredth anniversary of the marriage of
Joseph and Letitia Hunter had come to an end.

MAY
FESTIVAL
SIXTH CONCERT
By William J. Lichtenwanger
Te 57th annual May Festival was
brought to a close last evening with
a devoutly thrilling and near perfect
performance of Verdi's Manzoni Re-
quiem, conducted by Dr. E. V. Moore.
Of technical weaknesses there were a
few, to be sure -- the chorus inevit-
ably dragged a bit in the difficult
fugue of the "Sanctus" and in the
final chorus of the "Libera me," the
sopranos frequently overbalanced the
other voices, the basses sang the
"Rex tremendae" in the "Dies irae"
rather weakly and with poor phras-
ing, and one overripe voice in the
latter section protruded itself un-
pleasantly at intervals. But such
details appear inconsequential beside
the exalted beauty and spiritual no-
bility of the work and the way in
which it was performed as a whole.
Especially outstanding were the "Dies
irae," stern and barbaric in its pro-
phecy of the wrath to come, and the
tender, appealing "Agnus Dei." In
the latter, the blend between soloists,
chorus, and orchestra produced an
inspiring effect. As to the soloists
themselves, it would be difficult to
select one as outstanding, but Mar-
tinelli's glorious voice and genuinely
emotional interpretation were at
their height in the "Ingemisco" of
the "Dies irae" and the first part of
the "Domine Jesu." The ensemble
passages for the soloists were on the
whole not done quite so well as the
solos, but this was obviously because
of the lack of adequate rehearsal.
It is difficult to close without
mentioning the part played by the
Philadelphia Orchestra, not only in
last night's performance but
throughout the entire Festival. Tired
and travel-,worn after their long
tour, they nevertheless gave their
best, not only for their own pro-
grams, but in their accompaniments
of the three choral works, the first
two of which were entirely unknown
to them. In attitude and discipline,
as well as playing ability, they far
exceed the orchestra of last year.
May they come again, even at the
expense of a traffic moratorium in
the neighborhood of Hill Auditorium!
By MARY JANE CLARK
Surely in all the history of the
art of music there has been no "first"
symphony to equal that of Brahms'
in display of vitality and maturity.
In depth and meaning it is gigantic,
and continues to outgrow and out-
wit the foolish man who, in his
analysis, attempts to affix a pro-
gram. It is an interesting fact that
the Brahms C Minor Symphony was
never really known and enjoyed
among the popular symphonies until
the Philadelphia Orchestra, which
played it last night in Hill Auditor-
ium, made the first successful elec-
trical recording in 1926, and this
work proved to be the most satis-

A Psychologist Retires
) LD AGE has taken its toll, and the famous re-
searches of Dr. Sigmund Freud in psycho-
analysis are over. On passing his eightieth birth-
day Wednesday, the prophet of the subconscious
said: "What I had to tell the world I have told. I
place the last period after my work."
Doubtless Freud is at last affected by the disil-
lusionment of old age. Health permits him to
receive but few visitors and patients, and these
in the presence of his daughter, whom he considers
his successor.
His recent books have not been successful and
have not satisfied his hopes for them since "The
Psychoanalytic Encyclopedia." "What I have writ-
ten later could -have been eliminated without loss,"
he says. "It could also have been produced by
others. I wrote with an open heart and received
