Students Don't Govern
At Michigan .
T HE CLAIM that student government
at the University .of Michigan has
been, a gross failure is highly inaccurate; true
i student, government here has never been at-
Last April's Spring Parley indicated recog-
nition of this fact by setting up a committee
"to. study student government at other col-
leges and make recommendations for the
strengthening of student government by invest-
ing specific powers in a democratically elected,
"Student" government, it is admitted, has
not been successful. That was evident last
May when the Men's Council, the then high-
governing body for students, abolished itself
In. its abolition move, however, it provided for
the taking over of its duties by the student
staff of the Union and a projected Judiciary
This newly established Men's Judiciary Coun-
cil was empowered "to direct and consider peti-
tioning of candidates seeking political posts"
and "to act as a judiciary in dealing with stu-
dent offenders." The Council has set up an
intricate code of rules for procedure. It has
as yet to deal with a single offender.
Ethics at "student" elections, moreover, still
exhibit the fairness of a high-geared city poli-
tical machine. Still in open view at the recent
J-Hop and Soph Prom elections were the old
illegitimate political practices of the "flaming-
youth" era. Still existent were the various
campus cliques and machines and. their "per-
suasive" methods to obtain signatures for peti-
tions. Though the situation of several years
ago when there were more votes cast for a stu-
dent 'office than there were eligible student
voters did not present itself (not because stu-
dent machines have suddenly become moral, bt
rather because of the identification card sys-
tem of voting), more sophisticated techniques
;have been developed. The cornering of several
identification cards by one member of the
imachine, thus enabling multiple voting serves
as an example.
The fundamental fact remains that "student"
government has failed, because the students have
not governed. Surveyors of the Daily files re-
veal that all student governments on the Un-
\rersity of Michigan campus have been' virtually
powerless, their efforts limited merely to the
adoption of resolutions and the administration
of some of the minor details of student elections.
Student government without power, moreover,
cannot hope to attract much student interest;
Ws a result, the holding of a student--governing
office has been limited not to those who are
truly interested in student government, but to
those who are much more interested in seeing
their picture in the 'Ensian with a list of in-
Oocuous positions beside it. Because of the
latter desire, student elections have degenerated
into contests between small cliques who are
interested in prestige for themselves, not serv-
iee for the student body.
"Student" government, finally, has not suc-
ceeded because, in many cases, as past issues
of the Daily reveal, it has been the faculty not
the students that have governed. And in such
a case, student interest inevitably decays and
Of ALL Things'
THE group of eleven men sat around the long
table and talked over the situation. Three
were smoking cigars; four had cigarets; two
pipes; the other two were picking their nails
and nose respectively. One of them rose to
"Gentlemen, as we have already noted, some-
thing definitely must be done. We absolutely
cannot have such an intolerable situation exist-
ing on this campus. It is indecent, that's what
"Well, Llelywyn, it isn't so much that it's in-
decent as it is undignified. "This from Cigaret
"But something definitely must be done; I
think we are all agreed on that," offered the
The men shook their heads in agreement.
Something had to be done. "And quickly, too,"
was Cigar No. i's suggestion.
"Well," said Pipe No. 2, who seemed to be the
chairman, "It would seem that we are agreed
that Lambeth is to be punished for his dastard-
ly action. But now the question remains as to
severity and the method of our action. What
shall we do about it?"
"Fire him," snorted Cigaret No. 4.
"No, we can't do that; he has a contract."
"And", observed Pipe No. 1, "His grandfather
owns an automobile factory."
"We could make him some kind of a super-
visor or other. You know, where he wouldn't
be in the way too much," Cigaret No. 2 piped
"No, his contract says that he must stay as
carilloneur. And we can't possibly break that.
You know, gentlemen, the scandal and all that.
No, he must remain as carilloneur, but we have
to think of some way to curb his fiendishness.
Why, if he is allowed to continue our whole
university will be disrupted. Do you realize
gentlemen, that yesterday, when Lambeth was
giving his concert, there wasn't a single student
in class? As soon as he started to play, they all
got up from their seats in the classroom, the li-
brary or wherever they happened 'to be, walked
out into the street; and began to. dance. I tell
you, the man has some fiendish hold over these
students. It's uncanny, that's what it is: un-
"Sort of like the Pied Piper of Hamilton o'
wherever it was," said the Nail-picker. He was
the comedian of the group.
"Well", said Pipe No. 2, the chairman, "I
think the only thing to do is to call him in and
talk to him. Perhaps we can find out from Lam-
beth himself just what he is doing."
He reachedto the side of the table and press-
ed a little button.
N the adjacent office, on the other 'side of the
door, sat a little man with thinning brown
hair. He looked around the office with a peculiar
smile on his face. His right foot lightly tapped
the rug as if in time to some swing number.
The buzzer at the secretary's desk buzzd
and the lady told the little man that he was
wanted in the other room. He thanked her,
got up, still slightly smiling and walked into
the room where the eleven men sat arond the
long table. He sat down at the nearest end, fold-
ed his hands in his lap, and began to tap his
right foot again.
"Well, Lambeth, I suppose you know why
you have been called. The Board cannot under-
stand your action at all. It is utterly incompre-
sible to us. And, as you have been notified, we
think your actions nothing short of disgraceful.
Just what have you to say for yourself, Lam-
Lambeth looked at each of the eleven men
with that same smile. "Nothing."
"But why, when you give your carllon con-
certs, do you make those horrible noises instead
of regular carillon music? And why does this
make the students leave their classroom to dance
in the street?"
Lambeth looked with a surprised look at the
chairman and then around to the other ten.
"Did they really do that?" he asked, almost glee-
"They certainly did," said the Nose-picker.
"And we will not tolerate any of that nonsense
from you. Why can't you play what you are
supposed to play? Why must you make those
weird noises on the carillon?"
"Weird noises? Those aren't weird noises,"
repliedthe little carilloneur. "That's the Ji/e."
"The Jive-makes you hep on the mellow
The eleven men looked at each other and
then back to the little man. The little man was
now tapping his foot quite hard and increasing
the tempo of the beats.
"Will you please repeat that," asked Cigaret
"That's the Jive, man. Hep, .hep. Palomar,
The eleven hen looked from one to the other
-empty faced looks. Then they asked more
questions and looked some more. And the little
man kept on tapping harder and harder until
his whole body shook and swayed. And all the
eleven men could find out about this Jive was
that when Lambeth sat down in front of the
carillon keyboard, he was seized with this in-
controllable urge to "beat it out," and then, be-
fore he knew it, he was "in the groove." They
did not quite understand. At first they asked
if it was possible for him to stop; the little man
said it came over him without warning and there
was nothing he could do about it. And when
they demanded that he either stop or be fired,
he just smiled and tapped his foot and called:
By RICHARD BENNETT
Tomorrow evening Fritz Kreisler will appear as
soloist in the second of this season's Choral
Union concerts. Mr. Kreisler has chosen from
his repertoire the D major Concerto of Vivaldi
(transcribed by Kreisler), the D major Concerto
of Tschaikowsky (revised by Kreisler), and a
group of five original works by himself. His ac-
companist will again be Carl Lamson.- ,
Bernard Shaw once remarked that if criticism
is to have any effect on concerts, it must clearly
be published before they come off. That is all
very well if the critic has anything to say in the
first place. But a program such as Mr. Kreisler
has chosen for tomorrow evening leaves one
more with the feeling that it would be wiser to
discuss the spiritual obituary of Igor Stravinsky
than attempt to say anything about a program
the first half of which consists of two concertos
both in the key of D major, and the latter half
of a group of original works which as far as this
reviewer is concerned rather hang in limbo than
suffer the blessing of heaven or the curse of
Is Successor To Joachim
Frankly, I do not know what to say anent Mr.
Kreisler or his program. If there were more
data and I had the least suspicion the reader
would approve, I would expound the attributes
of Mr. Lamson as an accompanist. Howevery,
that would not only be unkind to Mr. Kreisler but
also to Mr. Lamson; since, in the works chosen, it
is the business of the accompanist to remain in
the background. If attention were called to him
in a concert preview, it would be the writer's
eternal shame that no possibility was afforded
the player to justify that ecomum. Suffice it
to say that Mr. Lamson 'is of that rare class of
accompanists who guarantee that Brahms did
music a great service in writing as much for the
'accompanist' as for the 'soloist.'
Lest the reader suspect that my reticence to
croon the praises of Mr. Kreisler is due to an un-
favorable regard for that atrist's musicianship,
let me dispel any such notion at once by stating
that I believe he is the ideal successor to Joseph
Joachim. Though I have never heard Joachim.,
he being somewhat before my time, yet I have
read his praises: and I have heard Mr. Kreisler
on more than one occasion. As far as I have
been able to make out there has been no fall-
ing off. And that seems to me sufficient praise
for any artist!
Criticizes Program Choice
But-and you can depend upon it there will
always be a but when a young man in . his
his twenties takes to writing with a chip on his
shoulder-I do not at all like Mr. Kreisler's
choice of program. He still may be the master
interpreter, the rightful heir to Joachim; 'but
in furthering the cause of music as a progres-
sive dynamic art through which the people of
our own time would like to hear themselves ex-
pressed, he is as ungracious as were the Irish
printers when it came to publishing the works
of the youthful Joyce. Oh, I am well aware
that in the late nineteenth century Mr. Kreisler
performed the works of his contemporaries, or
near contemporaries, Vieuxtemps and Max
Bruch; and that later he introduced even the
gentlemanly Elgar. And however watery and
nondescript these composers were, it is all to
Mr. Kreisler's credit that he gave them to the
public for appraisal. But that is not now the
Kreisler that I am talking about. I am now
referring to the superb violinist who, since the
twenties of the present century, has failed to
take up the cause of any but the most con-
formable writers, at least in his concerts in
It used to be-it was so with Joachim and
Liszt-that prominent instrumentalists, singers
and conductors, took it upon themselves to be
responsible for the advertisement of some con-
temporary writer who, they felt, had something
to say but who could not make himself heard
except through the avenue of the concert stage.
Most outstanding composers are exceptional
performers also But obviously they cannot
perform equally well on every instruments for
which they write. It is the duty of every artist
and critic to combat (yes, a positive aggressive
act of war) this tendency of performers to sati-
ate a twentieth century public with an overdose
of ancestral worship.
Lauds Mature Craftsmanship
In all this I have apparently failed to take
into account the fact that Mr. Kreisler is devot-
ing the whole latter half of his program to
modern music-his own music. That is all very
well, but Mr. Kreisler knows as well as I do
that the greater mass of his music is neither
modern nor even representative. One can hard,
ly call representative music written admittedly
as an imitation of the spirit and structure of
eighteenth century formalism. And though
Mr. Kreisler has done work on his own, it still.
sounds too much like Sarasate via incipient Satie
for us to laud it as a new voice in the annals
of music literature.
All that I have said may sound somewhat
unkind, though I do not mean it is such. No
one holds in higher esteem than I the mature
craftsmanship and musical insight of Fritz Kreis-
ler. But it seems to me that we do want some-
thing more than a re-hashing of the old state-
ments, we do want to hear what the people of
our own time have to say through tone, color,
and verse about the problems of our own time,
and we do want to experience sympathy and
encouragement from the most illustrious of our
interpreters for the writers of today.
. . Bom, Bom, Bom, Bom-the quarter-hour
notes. More silence as the last echo nF the rom
dispatches from Europe are buzzing
with conflicting reports regarding
the British and the Russians. The
reports happen to be absolutely true,
nevertheless they don't make sense.
For instance, it is a secret but ac-
tual fact that a British ship left
Odessa, Russian port on the Black
Sea, not long ago loaded with $10,-
000,000 worth of the latest Russian
military equipment for the Chinese
armies. This equipment was not
cast-off stuff which the Russians
did not need, but up-to-date wea-
pons of war.
The Japanese knew about it, and
tried through diplomatic channels
to stop it. But the ship arrived in
Rangoon, port of British Burma, just
the other day and its cargo is now
in Chinese hands.
The ship, it should be noted, was
British, and it took Russian arms to
a British port. In other words, the
British and Russian Governments,
officially none too friendly, are work-
ing together behind the scenes when
it comes to combating the Japanese
Another diplomatic cross-current
is the British suggestion, so far un-
official, to send Anthony Eden, ex-
Foreign Minister, to Russia as Am-
bassador. Under the same plan, the
French would send to Moscow ex-
premier Edouard Herriot, one of the
most important figures in France.
Behind this proposal is a group of
liberals in both Britain and France
who believe in trying to win Russia
away from Hitler. It is the same
group which urged a Russian alliance
before Hitler beat them to it.
Vigorously opposed to them are
conservative members in both the
French and British cabinets who are
worried over Russia's designs on In-
dia, and fear that the fall of Hit-
ler would lead to bolshevism or at
least "democracy" in German. In
other words, they fear the menace of
revolution as much as the menace of

why ex-President Benes has been
given little Allied support in organ-
izing a revolutionary movement
among the Czechs. Benes is classed

America's most unique opera or-
ganization-the San Carlo Company
-carried the Wilson Theatre in De-
troit by storm Friday evening with
opera's celebrated double feature pro-
l gram-"Cavalleria" and "Pagliacci."
The theatre rang with applause
time and time again as the singers,
admirably accompanied by Carlo Pe-
roni and the San Carlo's orchestra,
gave what has been considered by
many one of the best performances
of their careers.
The sterling calibre of the perfor-
mance can be attributed to the San
Carlo Company's recognizing the
great popularity of the two operas
and its unstinted use of the best tal-
ent at its command.
"Cavalleria" starred the Company's
budding young soprano, Norina Gre-
co, as the Sicilian peasant girl-San-
tuzza. Her liquid voice was refresh-
ing to say the least and more than
made up for her inadequate acting.
Sharing equal billing with Miss
Greco were Myra Manning as Mam-
ma Lucia, keeper of the inn and Syd-
ney Rayner as Turiddu, her son.
Mascagni's purpose, the telling of
a sombre tale, was defeated more
than once during the course of the
performance. Little mannerisms of
the actors and the comical slapstick
between Turiddu and Alfio when the
latter confronts Turiddu with the ac-
cusation of paying court to his wife
-all these caused ripples of laughter
to run through the audience.
"Pagliacci"-the second offering of
the evening-included masterful per-
formances by Mostyn Thomas as To-
nio, the clown, and by Francesco
Curci as Beppe, Harlequin in the play
within the play. Thomas' prologue
and his characterization of the evil
scheming hunchback left nothing to
be desired. Curci, on the other hand,
did not seem in as fine voice as he
should have been. Yet, his Sob Song
could hardly have been better.
They were ably assisted by Leola
Turner as Nedda, (Columbine in the
play was in the play, Aroldo Lindi as
Canio; and Stefan Kozakevich as Sil-
vio, a young rustic.
The company will continue in De-
troit for this coming week and to-
night's performance will be "La Tra-
viata." Tomorrow and Tuesday will
feature "Faust" and "Tannhauser"
