fee hour from 4:30 to 5:30 in the small ballroom
of the Union. Each afternoon increasing num-
bers of men students gather to discuss, over cof-
fee and cocoa cups, the problems of school, or
those embracing broader fields-economics, art,
religion, politics, moving pictures, books, and
basketball. Knowing the rest of the fellows at
these informal gab-fests is entirely unnecessary.
Oftimes the hour starts with a score of fellows
who have never seen each other before, but by
the end of the period they. have gathered into
small intimate groups.
It's a grand way to get to know that fellow
who sits across from you in English, or to dis-
cover others who, like yourself, collect stamps
or butterflies. It's a handy place to denounce
fascism, communism, or capitalism. It's a mar-
velous place to wax indignant over the latest
Garbo movie.
Congratulations are due the Union for their
coffee hour. Special note should be taken of
the friendliness by which the hours are charac.L
terized; the fact that any one may have a
second, or even third, cup of coffee; of the fact
that all this free. Thanks are due the faculty
wives who lend a touch of charm to the arrange-
ment by acting as hostesses. More and more
men students should be finding out about the
coffee hour. May it come to have a permanency
in the Union's program. Because the campus
needs it.

THEI FORUM

unemployment
.nd Unions,.

IN A RECENTLY published pam-
phlet, "The Realities of Unemploy-
ment," WPA Administrator Harry Hopkins re-
ports unemployment figures in this country since
1897 in the United States.' His figures, which
show that for the past 40 years there never has
been less than 600,000 members unemployed in
four key industries, would seem definitely to
establish the work of organized labor as an effec-
tive method of bringing about satisfactory na-
tional economy.
Mr. Hopkins points to our persistent unem-
ployment, which even in the booming 1920s
reached 3,000,000, and shows that industry must
raise wages if there is to be buying power for
capacity production. He rightly believes that
only greater production, which depends upon
widespread demand and consequently widespread
buying power, can solve our unemployment prob-
lem.
What Mr. Hopkins is actually calling for is the
proper allocation of our national income, '.If
products are to be bought, there must be buying
power in the right hands. It must be in the
hands of those who will use it for consumers'
goods, not in the hands of those who will reem-
ploy their incomes largely for capital goods.
Reemployment of income for capital goods
must be balanced in amount with that used in
the purchase of consumers' goods. Under these
conditions industry produces at capacity, and,
as a consequence of capacity production, there
will be no unemployment, and wages will be
high enough to purchase all that is produced.
The logical conclusion is that the work of
labor organizations must be continued. If wages
are to be raised, as recent wage scale readjust-
ments and bonus announcements from strike-
beleaguered and strike-threatened industries
prove, it must be through the efforts of a mature
labor organization.

Future Of Campus Religion
To the Editor:
One reads with a considerable elevation of
the eyebrow and a certain amount of irrepressible
cynicism that "the first step in a program which
may ultimately lead to the establishment of a
Hall of Religion on the Campus was achieved"
last week. Achieved, indeed! All of this appears
in some way to be connected with Lane Hall as
one might have expected. Having more or less
failed as a restaurant the present plan seems
the most likely thing to put it on its feet again,
for it must be patent to all who have any
knowledge of the present state of Christianity
that any effort to call down the Holy Ghost upon
Lane Hall can result only in the establishment
of a discussion group whose intellectual and spir-
itual labours will be sustained with some "slight
refreshments." Without its promoters knowing
it this new movement is likely to be little else
than a wake-a sitting-up with the dead and
slightly stinking corpse of Christianity.
Tf fact that the head of the mechanical en-
gineering department is at the head of the fac-
ulty committee lately appointed to bring about
the regeneration of religious feeling on the cam-
pus is significant. Other members of the com-
mittee include a sociologist and a Health Service
director. One is inclined to feel that religion,
whatever it may be, is neither mechanical, soci-
ological, physiological, nor yet quite hygienic.
Note is also made of the fact that the University
already has a degree program in religion, but
it fails to mention that the chief courses offered
are, on the one hand, merely a branch of
anthropology, and, on the other, given by a man
who is admittedly an atheist. All in all, the
present project seems somewhat profane and
wholly hypocritical.
Of course, the entire plan will necessarily be
on a strictly non-sectarian basis, which will
only harmonize the more with its absolutely non-
descript character. It is impossible in the very
nature of things that it should result in anything
more than another dreary discussion group on
the model of the Unitarians who make a merit
of having a perfectly open, not to say vacuitous,
state of mind-the blood of the Sacrament con-
verted into nothing more than weak tea or
pink lemonade. This may seem to imply that
the destruction of Christian unity in the 16th
century destroyed the real vitality of those Chris-
tian ideals which illumine the material darkness
of the Middle Ages with a constant, holy light.
This appears to be precisely the case. The Pro-
testant Ethics was ever more adapted to success-
ful husbandry and commercial enterprise than to
religious contemplation, and the Counter-Re-
formation, like some baneful soporific, has lulled
the Catholic fold into a profound intellectual
and spiritual slumber from which a fearful Pope
dares not run the risk of rousing it.
Christianity scarcely ever existed in America
at all: the rise to our type of greatness would
have been impossible in a Christian environment.
The church is dead, but one can at least respect
its sepulchre and not endeavour to conjure up
this hideous, festering ghost which seeks to
clothe itself in holy garments.

Why Pay Class Dues
To the Editor:
For some time notices have appeared in the
D.O.B. columns of the Daily regarding the pay-
ment of Senior class dues. Being both a senior
in the School of L.S. & A. and a naturally inquisi-
tive person, I should like to know who author-
ized this assessment as well as the purpose for
which it is to be spent. During my past four
years at the University I have been more con-
cerned with the important things of college life
and hence have somewhat neglected to follow
the political fortunes of my class. I think, how-
ever, it is a right of the taxed to know why they
are being so assessed and the disposition of the
proceeds so derived. If there are legitimately in-
curred expenses by the Senior class why can't
these expenses be met by the surplus of the J-Hop

BENEATH ****
#~#~##IT ALL
--- By Bonth Willi'm
APPARENTLY it always happens. Whenever
any enterprising students attempt some
manner of extra curricular publication, they
sooner or later get drunk with the power of
the press and go berserk, panning everything
that comes to mind, and inevitably ending up in
the soup.
It takes some quite a while; it has taken the
Parrot publication until its second issue.
This week's offering is not scandalous or aw-
ful, it's just a very poor attempt to be inter-
esting, combined with a scheme to attract pub-
licity through a sarcasm which is couched in bad
taste.
There are three very surprising things about
the sheet under discussion. Number one is that
Max Hodge, one of the two editors, is a soph-
omore on the Gargoyle staff with an excellent
chance of someday becoming managing editor.
Neither Gil Tilles, present editor, or the omni-
potent Board in Control of Student Publications
look with favor on the enterprise.
Number two is that facts and names could be
so twisted and so nasty in a publication that'
seeks to establish itself as a campus favorite. The
Hash House News takes pokes at President Ruth-
ven, makes scathing remarks about the League,
slams the Gargoyle, and then swipes a story
from its files. With all this lambasting 'you'd
think it would be pretty funny: It isn't.
Point number three is that Al, who has a pretty
good thing in the Parrot, lets this kind of a
publication represent him and his establishment.
The Parrot has been accused of. a lot of things,
but the character of its official organ is the
worst condemnation of it I have ever heard.

BENEATH IT ALL: Jenny Peterson put her
foot down when Bob Weeks called her yes-
terday afternoon to tell her he had decided
to get a short haircut . . . Chuck Kennedy is the)
victim of a bad attack of pleurisy in his Roches-
ter stomping grounds and will probably have
to rest in Florida for some time before assuming
the responsibilities of the business world . . .
Radio Station WJR has invited sports editor
George Andros to participate in an All-Mich-
igan hour along with the sports authorities of
Michigan State and U. of D. . . . Ace Bailey, for-
mer major league hockey star who was almost
killed during a National League hockey tussle
a couple of years ago, will be coaching the
Toronto Varsity when that team engages Mich-
igan in the Coliseum early in March . . . Matt
Mann showed the best swimming films I have
ever seen in the Michigan tap room yesterday
afternoon. Al Green, last 'year's national low-
board champion, demonstrates to perfection
every dive in the book. Explanatory captions
make the film invaluable as an aid to less
accomplished performers . . . The whole host
of Union aspirants dropped everything to at-
tend a special dinner Tuesday night in the
hope of showing President Herb Wolf that they
were really on their toes. Herb crossed them
up and caused a lot of beard mumbling when
he got a headache and stayed home.
* * * *
FOR YOU FORM players who still think you
can beat Leo I present a little plain and
fancy figuring calculated by the office staff in
their spare moments with the aid of an all sports
book.
I see by the papers where Rep. John Hamil-
ton is going to expose the bookies in Detroit to-
day before the state legislature, in hopes of
having them legalized, so perhaps this little de-
vice will be of more practical value than you
think.
On the bare chance that handbooks will con-
tinue to operate much as usual, and for the spe-
cial benefit of those who do their wagering at
the track itself, I will carry on.
Perhaps you know what a' rounded book is,
perhaps you don't. At any rate, I will elucidate.
When you look at the entries in a horse race

just before plunging on that 'sleeper' in the third,
you note the odds after each horse's name.
Now those odds are 2, 3, 8, 10, or whatever the
number may be, to one. For a perfectly rounded
book, the sum of the odds (3-1, for example
would be 3 plus 1, or 4) on every horse divided
into a hundred must total 100 per cent.
That may look a bit complicated, but take.
an actual race as an example. Take this 6 fur-
long sprint at Hialeah, I think it was the 5th race
Monday. Here were the entries and the post
odds:
Dusty Dawn 5.
Mucho Gusto 3.
Tintagel 6/5.
Goldey F 2.
This is a particularly good example because of
the size of the field, but the system works with
any number. To see how close the odds come to
making a rounded book, compute the percentage
on each horse, add them up and you have it.
Dusty Dawn 5-5 plus 1 is 6 into 100 gives 16.6%
Mucho Gusto 3-3 plus 1 is 4 into 100 gives 25.0%
Tintagel 6/5 or-.2 plus 1 is 2.2 " 100 gives 45.4%
Goldey F 2 -2 plus 1 is 3 into 100 gives 33.0%
119.0%
Aha, 19% crooked you say. But it's not really
as bad as that. In most states the track's cut on
wagering is 10%. and with that figured in, we
have only a 9% discrepancy. The discrepancy is
not really a matter of crookedness either. It
merely means that the pre-race odds are figured
as closely as possible and that all errors will be
rectified in the mutuel machines before the pay-
off.
This little factor is what's beneath it all when

THEATRE
'Peer Gynt' With Puppets
By JAMES DOLL'
IBSEN'S John Gabriel Borkman,
Ghosts, and Hedda Gabler have
been seen here recently. All these
belong to the group of so-called
social dramas but have, however, a
poetic quality that takes them above
their superficial realism. Of Ibsen's
early plays in verse form, only Peer
Gynt seems to hold the stage. Be-
cause of the difficulties of production,
the difficulty of finding the right cast
and director, productions of it are
not frequent. There should be op-
portunities to see it more often be-
cause it throws light on elements in
Ibsen's later plays that are too much
neglected. Besides it is one of Ib-
sen's most interesting plays. The
Theatre Guild did it about fifteen
years ago with Joseph Shildkraut
as Peer. Richard Mansfield produced
a garbled version of the play in the
early 1900's. These are the most pro-
fessional productions of the play in
Ithis country.
The Tattermar Marionettes will
present their version of the play
(judging by the program it seems to
be a full one) at the Mendelssohn
Theatre for two performances, mat-
inee and night, Saturday, Feb. 27th.
It should be more interesting and
imaginative with marionettes than
with living actors. Paul McPharlin,
one of the leading authorities on
puppets, says: "Marionettes, so full
of possibilities for the grotesque and
fantastic, will be perfect interpreters
not only of Ibsen's satiric intent, but
of the colorful scenes crowded with
trolls, Norwegian peasants and na-
ture forces. They can show this play,
planned for the large stage of an
opera house, in all its sweeping size,
by reducing the proportions of the
actors and consequently increasing
the visual effects of their back-
ground."

Anthropology
.Rise In Orient
Great Chinese Interest b
Said To Be Result Of
Racial Aspects
By JAMES E. DUNLAP
Anthropology, although only intro-
duced fairly recently, is a fast-grow-
ing science in the Orient in the opin-
ion of Prof. Leslie A. White of the
anthropology department, who visit-
ed Ann Arbor for a few days last
week.
Professor White, who is on sab-
batical leave, left Ann Arbor last
June and has just returned from a
short tour of Japan, China, Suma-
tra, Java, the Philippines, and Ha-
waii. He spent more time at Peking
than at any other place, and he ad-
mitted that most of his opinions on
anthropology in the Far East were
based on his associations with the
students attending Yenching Univer-
sity, near Peking, and with the an-
thropologists of that district.
"However, from my brief contacts
in neighboring countries I am in-
clined to think that the same general
conditions exist more or less through-
out most of the Orient," Profesor
White said.
Although there are only three
schools in China which give any at-
tention to anthropology, the students
of the science display a great interest
in the subject and are very eager to'
acquire any new anthropological in-
formation they can, according to Pro-
fessor White.
It was at Chou Kou Tien, not far
from Peking, that the "Peking Man"
was found in 1929. From this site

several of the oldest skulls ever to be
uncovered were dug up and placed in
the local museum for study.
"Seven or eight skulls in all have
been found to date, three of them
coming to light just before I left,"
Professor White said. This Chinese
work on the "Peking Man" has al-
ready added considerable information
in the field of anthropology.
"Although these discoveries at-
tracted a good deal of attention, the
main interest of the Chinese in an-
thropology seems to be almost solely
from the practical angle; and they
appear to be more interested in what
a study of anthropology can accom-
plish for their country than in the
purely theoretical aspects of the sci-
ence itself. China, with its complex
mixtures of peoples, is an excellent
place to study social anthropology;
and it is social anthropology which
today is getting the greatest atten-
tion."
Professor White left Sunday night
for New York where he will work on
some papers until September when
he will return to Ann Arbor to assume
his former position.
