University Holiday -by Student Request

Percy Jones Hospital veterans visit-
ing at Helen Newberry yesterday.
Newly installed in the dormitory,
the instrument was played by its own-
er, Freshman Gerry Rose, at an aft-
ernoon open house. Veterans attend-
ing were part of a group of 110 who
were invited to dinner at various
women's residence halls following the
Michigan-Purdue football game.
The merimba, which looks like a
xylophone but is more mellow in tone,
was taken apart in 14 sections to be
moved into the dormitory. It is the
size of a piano, and covers four oc-
Miss Rose has played her instru-
ment over the radio from Inter-
lochen the past two summers. She
has been playing, as a hobby, for
three years, taking .lessons only a
year and a half.
According to Miss Rose, merimbas
are rare because the materials re-
quired are hard to get.
A graduate of Marshall High
School, Miss Rose organized a musi-
cal group called the Marshall Matinee
which gave a series of concerts at
Fort Custer and Percy Jones Hospital.
Last spring, Miss Rose presented solo
programs at the Post Tavern in Bat-

tries in this area," Dr. Frank L.I
Huntley of the policial science and1
English departments stated yester-
"If it becomes necessary tempor-
arily to aid Britain and Holland, we
should stand by our Allies but onlyt
on a clearly stated condition of event-t
ual independence for the people in-
volved," he said.
Dr. Huntley, who is teaching a1
course in Far Eastern politics, ex-
plained that the revolt in Java is theI
result of a tremendous upsurge of
nationalistic feeling throughout the
Orient. Japan, too, was an earlier
part of this movement, but her na-
tionalism, controlled by an oligarchy,1
exerted itself in a different way.
"Those people who think peace has
come to the Orient just because we
have defeated an upstart Japan are
sadly mistaken," Dr. Huntley claimed.
"The end of the war is merely a sig-
nal for the revolutions to begin again.
Peace will not come until the various
peoples of the Far East achieve the
economic, political and cultural inde-
pendence which they consider to be
their birthright and which the west-
ern nations have robbed them of too
These revolts are of two different
types and oppose two different types
of western domination, he pointed
out. They are the revolutions against
colonialism-some of it no doubt
benevolent-such as exists in India,
the Dutch East Indies and Indo-
China. Then there are those rebel-
lions against the semi-colonialism
that exists in China.
"So far," Huntley said, "these have
not been color revolts and I sincerely
hope they don't turn into race wars.
They are merely for political and eco-
nomic freedom, which one cannot
blame people for desiring. If this
world revolution is successful, it
means the death of colonialism and
this, it seems to me, is morally right."
There are certain responsibilities
entailed in managing an empire.and
also in protecting vested interests
abroad, Dr. Huntley said, and these
should be considered. However, we
have done exceedingly well in our
control of the Philippines, though
this is by no means a completly white
page in our book, and we are continu-
ing to do a good job by setting a
definite date for independence and
working towards it.
"It is traditional American policy,"

Prof. Arthur Hackett, Chairman of
the School of Music voice depart-
ment, will give a short recital of
French songs at the first meeting of
LeCercle Francais, to be held at 3
p.m. Tuesday in the Assembly Room
of the Rackham Building.
Election of the Bureau will take
place after an informal talk on "La
France et La Piax Mondiale" by Prof.
Charles E. Koella, director of Le
Group singing and a social hour

cle, will not hold a meeting as sched-

Dr. Huntley continued, "to allow na-
tions to choose their own form of
government. Another American tra-
dition is to make promises and keep
them. If this latter was done in Java
or in any country where Allied troops
or Allied governments are in control,
the problem of occupation would be
greatly simplified. Though we failed
in explaining to the Koreans our
armed support of Japanese adminis-
trators there, a frank and open ex-
planation of how matters stand is
always the best policy."
"If we insist that Britain and Hol-
land follow a similar policy with their
own colonies, " Huntley said, "inde-
pendence could be established with-
out strife. It may be necessary for
the Allies to stick together at present
and even uphold each other by force
of arms, but we should also try to
work together in planning for the
freedom of the Far East-because it
is on its way."
Verein To Hold
Thanksgiving Day has been a one-
day University holiday for years-at
the request of students!
Until 1908 the student body en-
joyed a three-day vacation, begin-
ning on the Tuesday evening before
Thanksgiving Day. President A. G.'
Ruthven, then a student here, re-
members that many of his fellows
objected to the long holiday; they
lived so far from Annu Arbor that
they could not possibly reach home
even in that prolonged recess. Be-
sides, they argued, they were paying
board for a period when they were
not attending classes.
In 1908, the change to a one-day
Thanksgiving vacation was made ef-
fective, Dr. Frank E. Robbins, as-
:istant to the President, said yester-
This year triple cuts will be imposed
on those students who do not attend
classes on Wednesday, Nov. 21, and
Friday, Nov. 23.

"What a Life"
To Be Given
By ' Players
"What a Life," Clifford Goldsmith's
hilarious comedy about Henry Ald-
rich of radio fame, will open Play
Production's winter season Dec. 12
through 15, the Department of
Speech has announced.
A sensational success on Broadway,
the play was first to present the ado-
lescent to theatre audiences. Henry's
high school scrapes are both amusing
and serious. Unable to get book
learning through his head, he be-
comes involved in perplexing diffi-
culties with teachers, school princi-
ple and his own family, not to men-
tion the girl friend he has dated for
audience in an uproar throughout
the spring dance. Henry keeps the
the three acts of the play. But due
to the sympathetic understanding of
the assistant principal, Henry is
saved from total disgrace when the
final curtain goes down.
"What a Life" will run for four
performances at 8:30 p.m. Wednes-
day through Saturday, Dec. 12-15 in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. Tic-
kets will go on sale Dec. 10 at the
theatre box office. Mail orders will
be received before that date.
Tryouts for the Ensian art staff
are requested to meet at 1:30 p.m.,
Tuesday in the Ensian office.
Sigma Rho Tau
Meet To Debate
The adaptation of jet propulsion to
commercial uses, new developments
in planes, and the St. Lawrence ques-
tion are among the many current
topics to be discussed and debated
this year by Sigma Rho Tau, engi-
neering speech fraternity which is
holding an open meeting at 7:30 p.m.,
Tuesday, in the Michigan Union.
At this meeting, newcomers, i'e-
turned veterans and former students
interested in the organization will
have an opportunity to find out about
its activities. A current topic will be
discussed and refreshments will be
The officers and committees of
Sigma Rho Tau have decided to re-
vive some of the former activities of
the organization held in abeyance
during the war. Since activities, in-
cluding travel, no longer have to be
curtailed and many members of the
fraternity are back from the armed
services, the speakers exchange and
conference debates among engineer-
ing colleges will be revived.
Many old rivalries, such as that
with the Ypsilanti Women's Debate
Team, will be renewed, Prof. Robert
D. Brackett of the College of Engi-
neering announced. During the war
SigmaiRho Tausheld several inter-
collegiate debates by means of rec-
ords, and a few such debates may be
held this year.

ning of .folk dancing, and a Mozart
Preceding the Christmas party, the
verein plans to revive its old custom
of caroling (in German). In years
past the men students of the club,
with a German band, would serenade
women's residences with Christmas
carols. However, all members of the
club will be urged to participate this
year, Dr. Striedieck said.
New on the program this year will
be "Auskunft Bitte!" (Information
Please), in which faculty members of
the German department will be the
experts and members of the verein,
The Deutscher Verein plans to meet

tures to date at Tuesday morning's
