Greater Movie
Season To Be
Business Boom
Following the national movement
for a "Greater Movie Season," the Ma-
jestic .and Arcade theaters are co-
operating by planning bigger and bet-
ter programs to offer to its patrons
for the remainder of the summer and
in the fall. An idea of this move-
ment is to stimulate business to such
an extent that the added profit, from
the increase in 'business, will enable
the producers to distribute good pic-
tures throughout the year.
As a further step in the .devdlop..
ment of this movement a new organ
will be installed in the Majestic the-
ater, and the orchestra will be in-
The main idea of the "Greater Mo-
vie Season" is to awaken the public
in the realization of what is actually
being accomplished in the movies.
President Coolidge himself has in-
dorsed this movement, as have other
great men and numerous Women's
Federation clubs.}
Ordinarily there are only about six
exceptionally good pictures produced
each year, but next year, as a prom-
ising beginning of the Greater Movie
Season, the Majestic and Arcade the-
aters already have fifteen greater pic-
tures scheduled. These are Douglas
Fairbanks in "Don Q, Son of .Zorro";
"Black Cyclone" with Rexr the won-
der horse; Mary Pickford in "Little
Annie Rooney"; "Beggar on Horse-
back"; .Harold Lloyd in "The Fresh-
man"; Ramon Navarro in "Annapo-
lis"; Charlie Chaplin in "The Gold
Rush"; 1 D. W. Griffith's "Sally of the
Sawdust"; "The Iron. Horse"; "The
Scarlet West"; D. W. Griffith's "That
Royal Girl"; "The Vanishing Ameri-
can," a James Cruze special; "The
Lost World"; "The Ten Command-;

Professors Frayer And Slosson Hold
Positions On Entertabiment

Says That Little Sound Entering Ea
Is Transmitted Through Bones
Of Head To Other Ear
Various methods of measuring hear
ing and some of their results wer
described in yesterday's lecture by Di
Harvey Fletcher. This was the fourti
of his series of lectures given on
"Speech and Hearing" at the Natura
Science auditorium.
Whistles, tuning forks, telephon
systems and other 'means have been
used to calculate the actual amoun
of ehergy required to vibrate the hu
man ear drum, to give sounds of vary
ing degrees of loudness. In the Bel
Telephone laboratories, New York,
where studies of telephone transmis
sion are constantly going on, a knowl
edge of this sort is very importani
and some years ago elaborate experi
ments were'" begun to determine th
sensitivity of the ear.
One of the ingenious devices was
receiver in which the speech current
flowed through and heated severa
tiny wires. The variations in thef
temperature caused variation in th
temper'ature of the air around ther
and so set up sound waves of" know:
intensity. On these tests it was foun
that the normal hearing is most sen
sitive between 1000 and 4000 wave
per second; in this region lie mos
of the important sounds of speec
At sixty waves per second, audibilit
requires a pressure variation 25
times greater than that in the rang
just mentioned. There is an uppe
limit of loudness which the ear ca
stand; beyond this point pain is fel
"Much information about the work
ing of the ear is given," Dr. Fletche
stated, "by its behavior when the ef
fect of one tone in mashing anothe
is studied. Among other' things thes
experiments showed that very littl
sound entering one ear is transmitte
through the bones of the head to th
other ear."

Disproving the idea that modern warfare has made the soldier of fortune a romantic thing of the past, the
seven Americans shown here, world swar heroes, are risking their lives for 10 cents a day to fight for France in
Morocco. All of them have fought in the uniforms of several countries. They are, left to right: (seated) R. H.

ican and Polish armies; in the latter as ,a brigadier-general.

"Get Ready' For Red" Early
Practice Gridders Warned

"We are returning to the Illinois
Stadium October 24th-is there any-
thing else necessary to be said?-GET
READY FOR RED!" This is the way
the invitations tosearly football prac-
tice, sent out last week, are ended up.
From all indications some watch-
word such as this will be adopted and
followed from- the moment fifty-eight
huskies first don the moleskins at 10
o'clock in the morning, Tuesday, Sep-
tember 15, until 2 o'clock in the aft-,
ernoon Saturday, October 24. Thel
game with M. S. C. on October 3 Will
be" a test, and the succeeding Satur-
days, when the Wolverines meet In-
diana and Wisconsin, there will be
further. tests. But from the gridders'
point of view the great day of the
early fall will be October 24.
-The coaches here are not much on
"this psychology stuff," but they

mean to imbue every candidate with
a sense of responsibility for what is
to happen October 24. Coach Weiman
strenuously denied the rumdi yester-
day that huge crimson signs reading
something like "What more can be
said? / Get ready for Red" will greet
each candidate every time he turns
around inkthe locker room and else-
It was intimated, however, that just
as effective, though more subtle,
methods of impression will be used.
Coaches may or may not put pictures
of the Wheaton ice man all over the
Field House, and may or may not
have agents keep coming to the play-
ers and asking them to join the
Grange. Other means which may or
may not be used are being secreted,
it being rumored that the element of
surprise may or may not play a large

So that the student may exercise a
greater freedom of choice in subjects
for study and thereby produce a
higher type of; work because of the
personal interest involved, a sweeping
changekin the curriculum is planned
for Barnard College, according to the
report submitted by Dean Virginia C.
Gildersleeve to ! President Nipholas
Murray Butler of Columbia University
which was made public recently..
According to Dean Gildersleeve the
existing requirements are "a patch'-
work of accretions and amendments
which have become unduly complex
and have lost unity of purpose."
Dean Gildersleeve describes the fun-
damental aim of the new curriculum
by ,saying:
"The first of the principles that has
been laid down for the proposed new
curriculum is that no specific courses
or subjects shall be prescribed, be-,
yond those needed to give a student
certain fundamental tools useful for
successful work in any field. These
tools are ,a command of written and
spoken English, the ability to read at
sight, with ease, at least one foreign
language, and a knowledge of hygiene
and a healthy body.-
"To give these, the following
courses are to be prescribed, except,
for students hW'ho' can demonstrate
that they have no need of them: A
fr'eshman course in English composi-
tion, a freshman course in spoken
English primarily for remedying de-
fects of the voice; lectures on per-

quired to take during their four years
appropriate physical exercise."
The faculty also believes that each'
student should be required to concen-
trate his work,,sufficiently to gain a
fairly thorough knowledge of one
Dr. Charles L. Spain of the Detroit
public schools when asked his opinion
of the idea, stated that he thought
the change would prove to be very
effective in that it would eliminate
much of the choosing of "pipe" courses
merely for the sake of filling some
compulsory requirement.
Detroit Painter
Will Teach Here
Fred H. Aldrich, Jr., who is well
known among the young painters of
Detroit, will teach drawing and paint-
ing in the College of Architecture the
first semester of next year in the
place of Mrs. Mary 0. Johnson, who
will not teach that semester. Mr. Ald-
rich studied drawing and painting in

Says "Middle Theory" Is The Present
Economic System And That c
It Is The Best1
"The very fact that existing eco-
nomic order has survived today is in
itse~lf a very strong indication of its
vitality, of the fact that it is adapted
to human needs." So stated Prof. I.
Leo Shhrfman, of the economic depart-
ment yesterday afternoon in his lec-1
ture on "Is the Existing Economic
Order Worth Saving?" in Natural
Science auditorium..
"Private ownership, private prop-
erty, freedom of contract and indIvid-
ual initiative,-these things distin-
guish the existing economic order,"
sair Professor Sharfman.
He then discussed the two extree]
views regarding the present system.
The Babbitt' theory assumes that
everything that is ought to be. The]
other extreme is the view of the Rad-
ical that all is wrong with the world.
His remedy consists in tearing things
up by the roots.
The shortcoming of the Babbitt the-
ory is that it ,involves a static view
and cannot prevail because life is
constantly changing. The Radical
standpoint is even more - faulty be-
cause it does not recognize that all
things grow out of the past, that the
past is as much. a part of the future
as the present, and that to have conti-
nuity, the future must grow out of
the present as the present out of the
Between these two views is a middle
theorywhich advocates the conserva-
tion of the fruits of past effort, the
removal of current maladjustments
and the establishment of flexible ar-
rangements that will take care of the
changing cond ions of the state.
"The major task of any economic
system is to app 'rtion the limited re-
sources among the infinity of demands
that may be made upon," Prof. Sharf-
man stated. "In the existing system,
the consumer is the deciding factor
since the producer produces what the
consumer demands. Herein lie some
of the great advantages of the exist-
ing order for it gives flexibility and
has within it the principles of prog-
ress. Although it is, in many respects
a system of trial and error, out of
that trial and error is produced an
economic order really gro'unded 'on
what humans want"
As the alternative of the present
system, Prof. Sha rfman discussed soc-
ialism. This, he declared, would pre-
vent individual 'redom and would
remove the pressure toward progress
which co'petition tings 'about.
In concluding; Professor Sharfman

Announcement has been made of the
next annual ineeting -of the American
Historical association, which will be
held in Ann Arbor during Christmas1
vacation of this year. Headquarters
for the members of the Association l
will be at the Michigan Union. Pro-
fessor W. E. Dodd, of Chicago, is
chairman of the program committee,
the results of which are to be' an-
nounced-later; and Professor William
A. Frayer, of the History department
of the University of Michigan, is head
of the local entertainment committee.:
Professor Preston W. Slosson, also of
the History department of this Uni-
versity is a lieutenant on Prof. Fray-
er's committee. ,,
The Association is composed not
only of the entire History teaching
Istaffs of all Universities and colleges
throughout the country, but also any
individuals who caretinterested in His-.
tory. The Association now has over
2,000 members. Members in the Asso-
ciation not only have the privilege of
attending the annual fneetings, bat
also have access to the American His-
torical Review magazine, which leads
all others of its kind.
The annual meeting was held in
Richmond, Va., last year, and at Ohio
State University the year before.

July having been donated by Mrs.
Thomas Henry Simpson as a memorial
to her husband. The institute is to

second having been toughly completed,
and is to be devoted primarily to the
study of pernicious anemia although
other important research work will
also be carried on.
The building is located iear the
new University hospital on North Ob-
servatory avenue across from the Ob-
servatory. Other work. which is be-
ing done in this vicinity is the land-
scaping of the grounds around the
Observatory, the steep banks being
terraced off. The landscaping of the
ground's around the new University
hospital has also been finished lately.
