On thinking over the list of topics
which might be especially timely this
time of year, we can think of no more
fitting subject to discuss than that
of berth control.
As you know, certain vehicles of
transportation have, for years, been.
devising new ways in which to gently
irritate the traveler who seeks the
comfort of these lullaby beds.
First, there's this business about the
ladders to the upper bunk. If you've
ever tried to climb down them in
the middle of the night when the
said vehicle is going around the cor-
ner you'll go home by boat every
Ponder This One
And then there's the problem of
'deciding whether your head should
go backward with the train, or whe-
ther you should sleep feet first. If
you ponder on this long enough, you're
quite liable to lose your head, and
then, of course, the whole problem
will be solved with no effort on your
It won't help much, however, if
you happen to get placed next to "Our
neighbors-the cardsharks," who in-
sis on arguing about the fine points
of the last 20 games at 3 a.m. Nor
d t ooes itd any good to pound on the
intervening partition (dormitory
style), because the people above or
below you, as the case may be, will
inevitably get the same idea, as will
your neighobrs on the other side.
And so on, ad infinitum, until the
whole coach begins to sound like a
bad imitation of your favorite drum-
mer. *Remote Control Urged
As you can see from above, the
whole matter of berth control is a
most important subject. Nervous
breakdowns have resulted from less
provocation. The next time you see
a conductor, for instance, look him
in the eye, and see if he doesn't stare
right back at you.
Anyhow, our suggestion for the day
is that sleeping be operated by re-
mote control. Get yourself a very
straight chair with no sides to it and
concentrate on the exam you might
have written had not other activities
interfered. We guarantee you'll fall
asleep immediately-for purely de-
fensive reasons.

Lighting Is Deft
Ann Arbor is to see examples of
the magnificent lighting of Feder
this dramatic season because of the
happy combination of his friendship
for both Ruth Chatterton and Val-
cntine Windt, director, and also his
interest in lighting possibilities for

Jewel House Built
It is this last that he has just
finished, at the House of Jewels at
the World's Fair, where three mil-
lion dollars worth of jewels are
watched night and day by systems
of guards, mirrors and electric eyes.
Feder left New York by plane, to put
in some work here yesterday. Sev-
eral plane trips may be necessary
this week.
"It's the young men who do
things," he cracked, grinning. "Look
at Hitler." During the ten years
since he left Carnegie Tech, the
young stage lighter has made a
world-wide reputation in his ab-
sorbing profession. Born in Milwau-
kee, he was interested in stage light-
ing and electricity even as a lad.
