Census.. .
T ODAY the Postoffice Department
begins distribution of 70,000,000 un-
employment questionnaires to approximately 31,-
000,000 homes in an ambitious attempt to de-
termine the number of unemployed, partially
employed, and relief-employed.
The "unemployed report cards" are to be filled
out and dropped in mail boxes, postage free, be-
fore midnight Saturday. Local postoftices will
tabulate the results and send them to state
central accounting offices, which will wire them
to Washington. Complete results will be avail-
able by December 20, two weeks before Congress
begins its regular session, when they will un-
doubtedly figure prominently in consideration of
work-relief budgets and wages-and-hours legis-
Recent estimates of the number of unemployed
have been far from satisfactory. American Fed-
eration of Labor estimates have been consistently
higher than those of the National Industrial Con-
ference Board. The United States Chamber of
Commerce has published estimates which are
lower than those of either of these agencies.
Figures announced by President Roosevelt, Re-
lief Administrator Hopkins, and Secretary Per-
kins have been attacked by Senators Vanden-
berg and Glass as "over-estimating unemploy-
ment by as much as five million."l
The census, which will cost $4,000,000, should
furnish evidence as to the accuracy of previous
estimates, especially if a smaller, more intensive
survey corroborates the results. This smaller
survey, which is to serve as a check, is a house-
to-house canvas of typical cross-section areas,
containing 300,000 homes, or about 1 per cent of
the total homes included in the larger count.
The success of the survey depends largely upon
the corroboration of its results by the smaller
survey. If there is wide discrepancy in results,
voluntary ballotine may have to give way to
some more stringent method. If the survey is

widely publiciqed, however, and the unemployed
realize that future relief administration will be
based on its figures, the results can be highly

Consumers' Cooperatives. .
regarded by some as a painless way
of insuring more even distribution of wealth.
While the elimination of the profit motive, and
the doctrine of democratic control embodied in
the Rochdale cooperative principle is theoretical-
ly a remedy for existing discrepancies in the
apportionment of wealth, the Consumers' Coop-
eratives can wield no great influence until they

could command more respect from wholesalers
and could, by the establishment of producer's
cooperatives, create its own source of supply.
The'potentialities for increased membership lie
chiefly with the working class. The latter's in-
terests are allied with those of the cooperative
movement. While.cooperative prices are essen-
tially the same as thoseof chain stores, the
yearly dividend issued by the co-op provides an
opportunity for material saving.

For those who like slapstick occasionally (and
who doesn't?) Harold Lloyd in "The Freshman"
is one prolonged belly-laugh. For those who
watch the Lydia Mendelssohn showings of the
Film Library with a quasi-historical approach
(and who does?) the pictures on Sunday was an
illuminating commentary on the campus of the
1920's when college was "a football stadium with
a university attached."
We didn't see either a professor or a book
throughout the picture. That may be an ex-
aggeration, even for 1925. But the blazers, hip
flasks and inane hazing aren't far off the track.
Except for landladies, their daughters and the
room situation, the audience seemed to think
that things have changed since the days when
"Speedy" rose from his post as campus boob to
become the football hero of Tate. And the
changes have been for the better.
Coming in the days when women's clubs were
really going out for Culture, Robert Benchley's
lecture on "The Sex Life of a Polyp" was "price-
less," as one co-ed remarked when it was over.
The film, released in 1928, was among the first
"100 per cent talkies" and Benchley took full ad-
vantage of sound, particularly to throw in an
embarrassed "er-er" whenever he touched on
some of the more delicated aspects of Freudian
complexes among polyps.
The 1909 animated cartoon, "Gertie the Dino-
saur," and the two shorts, "His Bitter Pill" and
"The.Doctor's Secret' took us back to the days of
kaleidoscopic motion and blinding white spots.
The pictures were labeled "Comedies." Some of
the contemporar ymysteries, musicals and trag-
edies on the screen ought to drop pretenses and
come into the same category openly.I
BY THIS TIME everyone has finished marvel-
ling at the ole swimmin' hole that was Frank-
lin Fieldl last Saturday. Ty Tyson probably hit itI
right when he divided the field up into sections,
calling each after one of the Great Lakes. We
ourselves were sitting close to where Bill Smith
knocked a Penn man out of bounds. Bill hit his
hip> a id clipped on off, sliding right at us, send-
inm 1p a spray and a sea that almost swamped
u. It was sort of fun though, because if you
caught the waves just right you could use the
bench as a surf board.
On the train home they were Kidding Norm
(Basty-Boy) Purucker about his two fumbles on
two successive downs when he had gone back
to punt. He had started on his own thirty-five
and finally had to stand back on his own ten to
kick. Someone suggested that he ought to get a
ball that would hang onto him better than that.
"No," said the Puruck, "just had to get a little
practice kicking under pressure, that's all."
So, the weekend ended with everything rosy
in the Michigan camp. The Eastern alumni ap-
peared to be appeased after last year's debacle,
the Michigan men gave an exhibition of fierce
tackling, and there was a general all-around
spirit of confidence that has been lacking
throughout the season. Much of this is due to

the uncovering of a workable backfield combina-
tion that is the most versatile of the year. Stark
Ritchie's running in the first quarter was such
as we have not seen since we saw the great Pug
Rentner of Northwestern. It was clever open
field work, with sharp cutting and fine change
of pace. The twenty-five yard run for the
touchdown that did not count was full of short
twists and cuts and hipswinging. And finally, to
climax the day in Philadelphia, it was determined
by chemical and biological analysis that the
mud on Franklin Field was definitely of a dif-
ferent variety than that lately found in Wash-
tenaw County and precluded any possibility of
it having been flung there from Ann Arbor.
FIVE ABREAST yesterday morning, the fresh-
man, the sophomore, the junior, the senior
and the graduate student marched into the Base-
ment Study Hall. To five corners of the room
they scattered and plunked their books open
before them on the table. The freshman waved to
the junior. The graduate smiled at the soph-
omore. The senior wriggled around until he
was comfortable. Three minutes passed. The
freshman looked up, his eye caught by the dic-
tionary on its stand. He started at it. Across from
the other side of the room the sophomore stared
at the dictionary. Near him sat the junior who
was staring at the dictionary. The senior stared
at the dictionary. Four minutes after the fresh-
man had begun staring, the graduate also was
caught by the thrilling aspect of the dictionary.
He was a teacher from West Keewee Junction,

JI/feeinrto Me
Veywood Broun
According to the present schedule, this is the
day on which I don't have to be mad at anybody
or even all worked up on any issue.. This is let-
down afternoon, which is preparatory to a day of
rest. So would anybody mind very much if I
spoke briefly on the universal subject of art?
In particular I refer to the art of painting, since
I am right now drawing a
bead on a maple tree at least
a hundred years old which
ought to be set down for pos-
But let's keep any personal
element out. The great tra-
dition of the masters is cer-
tified. Even the famous land-
scape painters had their
abode in town and commut-
ed to the country only during daylight. All the
artists of fiction, screen and stage have lived
charmingly and unwholesomely in a studio six
flights up, the fifth door to the right, and ask
for Kelly.
You can't have models unless you have a
studio, and what would a story of Bohemian
life be without the co-operation of Mimi, Suzette
or Yvonne? I think that I will have to live a
better life and study, so that I, too, may have a
Mimi. At the moment I wouldn't know what to
do with her, as I am still a General Sheridan
as far as nudes are concerned. I mean twenty
miles away and getting no closer, as far as my
art is concerned. It might even be an extrava-
gant boast to say that I am holding my own.
Among The Bohemians
To carry on a career with Suzette, Mimi or
even Yvonne-that's a life. To sit all day in con-
templation of deciduous oaks is less enticing. And
the more I try to get the fading glories of the
dying timber on the canvas the more I realize
the validity of Joyce Kilmer's famous line about
a tree.
It may even be that Mimis are easier to catch
in oils than maples. Skies are not as difficult as
either nudes or woods. A good fat dab of white
paint with a little purple looks like a cloud any
day in the week if you first explain your purpose,
and then get the spectator to stand at the ex-
treme end of a good long room.
But even that doesn't always work. Before I
exhibit again all my paintings are going to be
plainly labeled. I'm getting a little tired' of the
friends who come in to my atelier and look at a
picture which I purpose to call "Sentinel Cedar at
Twilight" and then ask, "Is that a tree or a
fat old woman in a green dress?" That annoys
me, and I always answer, "That's a portrait of
your Aunt Clara."

Sheer Accident And Not Design
Some of my technique is not the result of
deliberate design. In part I am an impression-
ist, because I cannot keep the brushes clean. The
turpentine is always running out, and the sky
and the meadow all get mixed up together.
Perhaps Connecticut is not the right home-
land for an artist. I am frustrated by an inability
to draw and by the Puritan tradition. Gauguin
probably had the right idea when, at a mature
age, he packed a suitcase and went to the South
I wonder just how old he was and when the
next boat leaves. It would be nice to have the
collectors chasing after me when I am gone and
saying in reverential whispers, "No one ever quite
appreciated poor old Broun while he was alive."
On The LevA

The Michigan football team seems to win by
parental associations. First they won when it
was Dad's Day in Iowa, and Saturday they won
when they had to be mudders at Franklin Field.
And the field was so muddy for the Penn
game that the coaches had to wait around
after the game was over to see if any of
the boys had been lost in the swamps or
By the time the last quarter came around,
the ball was even more slippery than Stark
Ritchie, but that's because Stark was tired from
running for touchdowns that didn't count.
In the last two games Ritchie has enabled
Kipke to work both of his brand new play cre-
ations and come out victorious. These baffling
new plays have been labelled "run around left-
end" and "the forward pass" by amazed sports
writers all over the country.
But Michigan will win half of its eight
games this year, which shows that there are
at least four teams in the country who
haven't solved Michigan's system since 1898.
This fact is odd too, because opposing coaches
merely tell their teams, "Remember those funda-
mentals you learned on the frosh squad? Well
