T WO EVENTS of particular inter-
est deserve student and faculty
attention this afternoon, although unfortunately
they occur at the same time. In the regular
series of Sunday Forums at the Union, Prof. Max
Handman of the economics department will dis-
cuss "The Social World We Live In." At Alumni
Memorial Hall, Prof. Jean Paul Slusser of the
School of Architecture will give a gallery talk
on the Edgar Yaeger paintings and the "All-
American" Graphic Arts prints
"The idealism that is held by youth has in
many instances very early turned into bitter-
ness," says Professor Handman. "Many young
peopfe go on covering over this change with a
great deal of indifference.
"Since we don't know what to expect when
we get out of school and are ignorant of what
life is really life, we form our own ideas as to how
men and women act. Many say that they
are cheated by their parents or teachers because
they were not told what to expect from our
practical world. Why all this happens, I will try
to explain."
His approach, he added, will not be primarily
economic.
The gallery talk on the print exhibit deserves
attention, both because of Professor Slusser's
qualifications and because of the particular sig-
nificance of this show. Having studied both in
this country and abroad, he has won many dis-
tinctions through his painting, has written on
art subjects for various of the foremost jour-
nals, has frequently lectured on art and is the
author of one of the Whitney Museum's books on
contemporary painters. The value of the prints

as an American art, and the artistic value of Mr.
Vaeger's work have been set forth in previous
articles on this page.

representatives on student government body-
then class elections ought to be managed in
such a manner that the president may truly be
said to be representative of his class. If there is
no function that can be given to class officers,
then it doesn't matter whether the president
really only represents five little men with cigars
in their mouths, sitting in the smoke-filled cau-
cus chamber.
The committee, while not satisfied that the
present student government is truly representa-.
tive, hopes ultimately to achieve a more repre-
sentative body through a different organization
of the student body than by classes. Though
their plans for this organization are unfinished,
they are satisfied that class officers cannot be
the instruments of representation. Since then
the class officers can be given nothing to do the
committee decided to let them go on as they
are as long as anyone cares to vote.
Thie present system of caucuses is fun for
some, harmless, and presents experience in prac-
tical political situations. The energy and in-
telligence shown by the group of young women
who protested against the present system is com-
mendable, and worthy of a weightier problem.
We now look forward to the first public un-
veiling of the new plan for representative stu-
dent government. It is a Michigan tradition
that student government shall change its form
every two years, but this, the committee prom-
ises, is a change to end all changes. Quod est
faciendum.

Principles Of Economics
To the Editor:
I was glad to see that the opinions I voiced
in Sunday's Daily stirred the students and
economics faculty into action. Especially was
I encouraged to notice that the male portion of
the students responded and were in accord with
my general feelings concerning the economics
exams.
There are probably many people who like N.
heard Dr. Ellis' proposal and are wondering what
moves I made. As N. suggested I was in some-
what of a "spot." In attacking the methods
used in economics exams, I was not criticizing
or blaming anyone individually but merely ex-
pr'essing earnestly and sincerely the faults I had
found-with the hope that the department would
take these suggestions as constructive criticisms,
and would consider them for what they were
worth when making up future exam questions.
In stating my ideas, I had no intention of as-
sailing or finding fault with anyone personally;
I was simply trying to bring before our instruc-
tors the idea that we are not all totally satisfied
with existing methods of exams in this depart-
ment.
It seems that Dr. Ellis misunderstood my pur-
poses; and, being somewhat provoked, slighted
the significant points to stress some of the less
important facts. It was very generous of him
to offer me an opportunity to sit in on the con-
ference to comment on the questions proposed
for Thursday's exam. If circumstances had been
different, I would have accepted this offer. I was
not "chicken": however, due to prevailing cond,
Lions, I did not attend. After all, "a word to the
wise is sufficient," and I think the department
knows what we are driving at, and understands
what we want. The proposal was perhaps just
an opportunity to get even with one who dared
to criticize. Being dissatisfied with the results of
the last exam, I am hoping that on the next one
I can do better. Why should I forfeit my op-
portunity to raise or improve my grade? Would
my presence have enough more weight than the
letters to be worth my forfeiting a chance to
attain a higher mark? In view of the facts that
presented themselves to me, I decided to ex.
press my ideas through one who would be at
the meeting. Therefore, I spoke to my instruc-
tor, and expressed to him the chief ideas that

were expounded in my letter--namely, that ques-
tions be clear and to the point and that ques-
tions be over material discussed. He promised
to present these ideas as from the students, and
to exert his slight influence over the powers
that be.
Until the exam, none of us will know how these
suggestions were treated, but already we have
been promised something which, as some of us
realize, is an improvement over the last exam.
The "blue-book" will cover only material taken
up in the recitation sections. No questions will
be asked on material not ever discussed in classes.
This may sound unimportant, but some of us
know that certain questions on the last exam
had never been discussed in some classes.
Maybe I am a "rugged individualist," or a
"stubborn Scotchwoman," but I still believe in
clear and concise exam questions.

elected government? He writes that the govern-
ment is not now supported by the people. Hov
then does he account for the fact that the Rev-
olution has already lasted four months? Why
is it that the Rebels have been at the gates of
Madrid for almost three weeks? If the people
were not behind the present government, it would
have been an easy matter to overthrow it be-
cause the most important generals in the army
would have gladly chosen to join the people in
this overthrow. The truth of the matter is thatf
this revolution has lasted as long as it has be-
cause on one side stand the mass of the Spanish
people, undisciplined in military tactics; while
>n the other side stand the big generals with a
minority which is composed of disinherited titled
persons, the clergy and supporters from Italy and
Germany.
Again allow me to quote from Mr. Aiton: "It
might be a good thing if the world would let
the Spaniards settle their own domestic diffi-
cuties and not read motives into them that
are not there." I can't understand Mr. Aiton
saying that this revolution is not a class war and
further that this -revolution finds its root in
the betrayal of the Spanish people by those
elected in April. He speaks of the admirable
qualities of "Old Spain." I am afraid that I am
not as romantically inclined as he is. These
"admirable qualities" make very good material
for history but they certainly fall down as facts.
Does Mr. Aiton realize that the condition of
the average Spaniard up to the overthrow of the
Spanish Monarchy was on the level of the serf
of the middle ages? Can't he see in this revolu-
tion the culmination of the hatred of the Span-
ish people against organized religion with the
leaders such as Gil Robles, and against Spain's
unscrupulous industrialists, such as Juan March?
King Alfonso was overthrown, not because of any
tyranny on his part, but because he refused to
separate the Church from the State. One might
ask, "Why this violent and sudden reaction
against the Church?" The answer may be found
in the proverb "Ignorance is bliss," and the
Church had certainly done its part in keeping
the Spanish people blissful; but economic pres-
sure brought educational forces into play and
the general masses got their first suspicions
of what had been happening. Little by little they
began to organize. King Alfonso's overthrow
might be attributed to the proverb, "A little
knowledge is a dangerous thing." Another thing
:hat helped to intensify the hatred of the Span-
ish people was the fact that the industrialists
and the Church were joined in "holy matri-
mony." To become a priest requires a higher ed-
ucation which in Spain is very expensive and
out of the reach of the poorer classes. In this
way the moneyed class and the Church were
joined in common interests.
How the revolution actually came about is
easily explained. Since the masses gained the
right to vote in 1930, the moneyed factions had
been organizing. However last April, when
extreme radicals were elected, the moneyed fac-
tions began to see the crisis. And they were not
wrong because, as they had expected, the army
heads who were not in sympathy with the pop-
ular government were slowly being weeded out.
Here indeed was the crisis! If they did not act
quickly they would be lost. And so on July the
18th the fireworks began. Let me again point
out that Mr. Aiton, as an authority on this sub-
ject, explains that this is not a class war. The
Spanish people are only fighting against the Red
Scare from Moscow. He says that all "patriotic"
Spaniards will welcome a Fascist victory. Noth-
ing could be further from the truth. Moreover
the word "patriotic" bothers me. If I remember
rightly, the last time the world went "patriotic"
13,000,000 of our best men were killed.
Professor Aiton calls himself an authority on
the subject because he was in Spain from Feb-
ruary to August of this year. I am not surprised
that he should do this. What surprises me is
that he does not say he is an authority on the
Spanish language. Someone might question my
statements. My brother was in Spain in 1934.
My ancestors for as far back as can be traced
have been Spanish. I was born in Spain. More-
over, my brother, as well as many other Span-
iards, saw this revolution coming. It was only a
question of time. Mr. Aiton concludes his com-
ments on Spain with the phrases, "Assiba Es-
pana" and "Viva Espana." I would point out
that these phrases mean "Up with Spain" and

"Long live Spain" and not the opposite mean-
ing as his comments seem to imply. I hope that
this letter has helped to erase any misconcep-
tion of the Spanish situation that might have
arisen from Mr. Aiton's article.

Potatoes
To the Editor:
In common with dozens of other suckers, I
elected Mr. Holmes' CULTURAL EVOLUTION.
According to the Announcement this course is
"a consideration of the origin and development
of human association. The evolution of the com-
munity and of various institutions such as lan-
guage, the family, the church, law, and the
state are studied."
This sounded like an interesting course so 4
elected it. After the first two weeks Mr. Holmes
started talking about the sorry plight of the
American farmer and he has been talking about
it ever since. Mr. Holmes, I understand, is one
>f the greatest living authorities on farm prob-
lems. That is excellent, but I am not much in-
terested in farmers. If I wanted to learn about
the farm situation I would have elected Mr.
Holmes' THE RURAL COMMUNITY. Since I
wanted to learn about Cultural Evolution and
am not learning about it I feel cheated.
If you order potatoes from a store and the
man sends you sugar, you can send it back. If
he won't take it you probably have what the
lawyers call an "action" against him. If you
order one course and the professor rams another
down your throat, what can you do about it?

THEATRE
Broadway Comes To Town
By KENNETH T. ROWE
r'HERE ARE an unusual number of
aspects of special interest to
the presentation oy Play Production
of Martin Flavin's "The Good Oldt1
Summertime." I hardly know where
to begin. A new play is always more
of an event than an old play that
has been received and talked about
endlessly, and we don't often have the
opportunity to see a first production
outside of New York. Itsis a curious
thing. In New York most play open-
ings are premieres, and the people
who love the theatre flock to the
opening nights in the expectancy of
making their own discoveries.
Elsewhere, the natural impulse to
fresh, individual critical and appre-!
ciative activity has been so numbed
by long dependence on Broadway suc-
cesses that many people hesitate to
see a new play-afraid of wasting
time and money, I suppose. Of course,
the theatre should be a creative ac-
tivity for the audience, which means
that people go to the theatre not just
to se a good play, but to find out
what there is in a play on their own
initiative. A university like Michi-1
gan, of course, is the best kind of
place for a new play outside of New
York; the university background na-
turally makes a creative audience.
This production of "The Good Old
Summertime" is much more than a
premiere, however; it is the inaugu-
ration of a new national movement
in the theatre. Barrett H. Clark, for
many years a leader in the cultiva-
tion of American drama, has or-
ganized the Dramatist's Play Service
as a move towards decentralization of
drama from Broadway. A group of
leading playwrights have agreed to
submit their new play to the Play
Service for distribution among ap-
proved university and other small
theatres for production before or
simultaneously with Broadway pro-
duction. The expanded market will
contribute to reducing the precar-
iousness of playlwriting as a means of
making a livig, make it less of a
gamble between the huge returns of a
Broadway hit and nothing.
Under Mr. Clark's plan we will get
to see plays before the edge of in-
terest is worn off, and in the case of
timely plays, while they are still
timely. "The Good Old Summer-
time," incidentally, is a timely play,
about the depression in a middle-
western family. The title is as mis-
leading as that of "The Children's
Hour." The locale adds interest for
us here, too. The centralization of
drama in New York congregates the
dramatists there, and we get too
many plays with New York City
background.
There is no question as to the
need of decentralizing drama in this
country if dramatic writing isn't to
die from excessive pruning Figures re-
veal the situation clearly. From a
survey I made last spring in New
York, the number of play manu-
scripts submitted during the year to
agents and producers was conserva-
tively estimated as around 40,00,0. I
don't have the figures for 1935-36 at
hand, but they were very little high-
er than for 1934-35. In the 1934-35
season 113 plays were produced in
New York, not much better than one
production to each 400 manuscripts.
Of the 113, 41 ran less than two
weeks and don't count. Only 37 ran
a month or longer; of those,
26 went to over a hundred perform-
ances, were hits. Many of the plays
that weren't produced, or failed,
would be of more interest to some
audience outside of New York than
some that succeeded there, but those
audiences will never have a chance to

see them.
It is evident that broader oppor-
tunities for the new playwrights are
needed. For an audience the one
thing more exciting than the dis-
covery of a new play is the discovery
of a new playwright. The Drama-
tists' Play Service is at present or-
ganized to give broader distribution
to the worker of established drama-
tists. The resultant strengthening
of local theatres willsundoubtedly
lead to more opportunities for new
writers. Every state university theatre
should become the center of a re-
gional drama.
Martin Flavin has had one or
more plays in the theatre almost
every year since 1921; "The Good Old
Summertime" is his fourteenth. Two
of his former plays have been pre-
sented by Play Production, "Chil-
dren of the Moon," a grim psycho-
logical study, and his most famous
play, "The Criminal Code, which re-
ceived the Pulitzer Award for 1929.
"The Criminal Code" was powerful
and moving as a play, and later as a
talking picture whith Walter Huston
as the warden. It was the father of
the run of prison plays and pictures,
none of which, of course, nearly ap-
proached the original. Flavin's last
play, "Amaco," dealt with modern
industry.
The Dramatists' Play Service is
working from the top in the direc-
tion in -which the Federal Theatre
has been working from the bottom.
Such movements may develop into a
much needed revolution in the Amer-
ican theatre system and certainly
should be encouraged.
