Night Editor-MARTIN MOL
A great deal of criticism from what
must be admitted to be unprejudiced
sources, .together with much more
which has come from prejudiced peo-
ple, has caused a federalrtrade com-
mission's investigation of public until-
ity publicity methods, and while there
have been a few instances of ques-
tionable policy brought to light, there
have also been some development
which have justified at least partially
the activities which were the cause of
the investigation.
The work of giving public utilities'
views in the schools has been made
necessary if the utilities are to save
themselves from ruin by adverse leg-
islation proposed by such organiza-
tions as the League for Industrial
Democracy, the Public Ownership
League, the National Popular Govern-
ment League, and the People's Legis-

the idea that any corporation is a
menace. to the country and who have
not been at all hesitant about carry-

efforts spell accomplishments. De-
spite what may be said to the eon-
trary, Governor Smith's administra-
tion in New York has been a credit to
the state and to the Democratic party,
Irregularities which ard brought to
light now and then may tend to mar
his record, but, as in the case of the
administration of the Republican
party, mishaps involving corruption
of varying degrees will creep into
offices of public trust regardless of
the party in power. Alfred Smith is
essentially honest. He has frankly
expressed himself as opposed to pro-
hibition, but in so doing he has exer-
cised his inalienable right and has
permitted the populace to know his
stand. On this count he can not help
but be admired. It is unfortunate
that in this land tolerant supposedly
so much fear is expressed over Smith's
nomination on the grounds of his
Catholic religion. This should not be
an issue of the campaign. Al Smith's
repeated expressions of loyality to his,
church inform America as to his stand
on a religious question which the gov-
ernor considers personal. It should
not belittle him in the eyes of the

dential fight were in order, it would

"Chicago" is a drama of the seamy
side of nrodern life..
It is of some interest to those of us
who renember Lillian Efinson's
work during the dramatic "Reinais- I
sance" op, the campus two years ago
to know that she is to play her big
role of the season as Roxie Hart.
Miss Bronson was perhaps the nost
popular of the campu3 actresses of
two anl three years ago. She was
one of }.ose who at that time contri-
tuted most to the revival of intrest
in Michigan dramatic enterprises.
Two of her most successful roles in
campus productions were the lead in
.Je'asc Lynch Williams' "Why Marry?"
and the mother of the bumptious twins
in Shaw's "You Never Can Tell."
Since her graduation in 1926, Miss
Bronson has been engaged in the-
atrical work in New York, from which
city she was brought by Mr. Heder-
son at the beginning of the present
season. As the ma- cr in "Tne Let-
ter" ant FMrs. Draper in "So rais is
London' she had lite chance to
show her ability. As Alison in the
current effering however, she has been
responsible for most of the life in
what seems to be rather a sad bill.
She has given evidence of great ver-
sitality in her roles this season and
should make an excellent Roxie Hart.
Roman Bohnen, who in the second
and third bills has not lived up to
the promise he gave in "The Letter,"
has a great opportunity . as ,Billy
Flynn. We hope that in this part he
will again show some of the great
ability he seemed to possess at the
opening of the season. Robert Hen-
derson will play the reporter, and E.

Three new offerings appear on the
city stages this week. At the Schu-
bert Detroit, Robert McLaughlin's
adaption of the old morality play,
"Experience" will open tonight under
the title of, "The Pearl of great
Price." Lee Patrick, supported by a
cast of more than 100, plays the lead-
ing role of Pilgrim, the simple coun-
try girl who goes to the city, battles
for her virtue, wins, and at last re-
turns to the country where she finds
her true lover waiting for her in a
little bungalow.
Gene Buck is presenting for ' the
first time on any stage a new piece
by George Abbot called "Ringside" at
the Garrick. The eight weeks run of
"The Scarlet Woman" with Pauline
Frederick closed at this theater last
night, and most of the pompaby have

of instructions given by superiors in
the :ress of modern business. The
hard-boiled executive, often- slightly
antagonistic to college-trained men, is
going to have scant patience with the
employee who. wants to take notes on
what he is told to do simply because
he has always taken notes and can-
hot trust his ear to remember enough
to make sure he had properly under-
stood the instructions. An efficient
business man is a compound of what
he knows, not what he can look up.
There isn't time to look things up.
