to consideration.
According to a report sent to the
U. S. Department of Commerce, thej
state of Michigan uses half as much
electric power as all of Great Brit-
ain. This figure seems a little
startling at first, but when we fur-
ther consider the statement of Ar-
thur W. Stace, director of the Mich-
igan Public Utilities Information
Bureau to the effect that every
workman in the state has the
equivalent of forty-five men work-
ing for him daily in the form of
electrically operated machines and
devices, the contrast seems very
However, Great Britain with her
enormous numbers of unemployed
might ponder this fact as being a
possible foundation for many of her
commercial ills.

every machine meant the loss from

developed into so strong a reaction-

About Books

STENDAHL, by Paul Hazard; Cow-
ard McCann, Inc., New York, 1929
The picture of Stendahl which
M. Hazard has drawn is decidedly
a one sided portrait ,and yet de-
fensibly so since it is an achieve-
ment of an obviously avowed pur-
pose. There were three paths open
to the biographer; he might set out
to interpret Stendahl's works from
the point of view of his life; he
might create a very vivid figure
whom he accredits with writing the
books Stendhal wrote and who
lived through the incidents that
characterized Stendhal, and whom
he finally calls Stendhal. In this
case thq author enrolls himself
with the widey read Maurois, and
another very vital but more roman-
tic than human figure takes his
place in the gallery of interpreted
M. Hazard has refused to follow
either of these methods of attack.
An authority of wide recognition
on Stendhal and his period, his
choice is significant as an enuncia-
tion of biographical principles in
cases where the Boswellian tech-
nique is impossible, and further, as
it makes clear the fundamentally;
scientific approach toward the
problem of relationships between

EThough the season is fast pro-
gressing toward its end, and the
summer wardrobe has long since
been assembled, there always 're-
mains the problem of finding those
odds and ends which, somehow,
seem to be lacking just at the cruc -'
ial moment. No matter how com-
plete is one's wardrobe, a little
more, added here and there, servesI
to' repair the ravages of wear, and
to give just that touich of newness
which makes one confident that
she is still keeping pace with the
fast changing mode.
Recent innovations in woman's
dress are waiting to be utilized by
the' discerning person. Many of
these are being displayed by the
New York shops.
Now, at last, the problem of the
down-in-the-back evening dress
has been solved! Formerly, the wo-
man who was at all sensitive to
contradictions felt that her
straight-lined evening wrap was
out of harmony with the irregular
hem of her gown. Now she may
create a harmonizing effect by the
use of the new uneven line of the
evening cape which is being fea-
tured by Bonwit Teller.
The most informal fishing cos
tume, a direct contrast to the for-
mal gown, has, in no less degree,
received the attention of the de-
signers. Pastel shades have invad-
ed the realm of the somber-hued
costume of former days, and now
the woman of fashion goes forth
to angle confident that she has
sacrificed none of her chic to the
demands of nature.
Fishing must necessarily turn
one's thoughts to the water,' and
the discerning woman is quick to
notice the convenience of the new-
est beach shoe. It is lined with sa-
tin, and has a decided advantage
over the e sandals of old which
would not let the feet slip easily

That retiring President Clarence
Cook Little has not ceased to think
reflectively and constructively
about the problems of a modern
university is shown by his article,
"Women and Higher Education," in
the August Scribner's Magazine.
Away from the busy scene of cam-
pus activities and freed from the
restraints put upon his pronounce-
ments of educational policy while I
he was officially connected with the
University, Dr. Little has a rare op-
portunity to speak with detach-
ment and yet with authority based
on experience about the practice of,
university administration and about
the part universities will take in
the future work of the world. f
Dr. Little's proposals are char-
acteristically concrete and original.
First of all, he suggests the elim-
ination from the educational scene,
because they "complicate matters,"
of the "pseudo-male" aggressive
ladies (often holding positions of
importance in the university ad-
ministration or among the alum-
nae) who, "having themselves for-
gotten or never having possessed
a youth, of sufficient normalcy or
attractiveness to have developed
their emotional contacts with the
male sex, consistently think the
worst of and without trial condemn
the younger members of their own
sex." As a possible alternative, he
points to the plan now being car-
ried out here which replaces the
single middle-aged dean of women
by a committee of three young ad-
But this is not the central prob-
lem now requiring solution, accord-
ing to Dr. Little. Much more fun-
damental is the fact that, both
physiologically and psychologically,
"there is an inherent difference or
group of differences between the
normal man and the normal wo-
man," and the consequent necessi-
ty for developing in the university
a curriculum especially designed to
fit women for the part they are
peculiarly qualified to take in the
progress of humanity. Dr. Little
points out that "woman's suprem-
acy in the field of intimate human
relations," her "mothering" in-
stincts, her interest in intangible
values and ideals and in music and
the fine arts, her social skills, have
been neglected in the attempt to
subject her to the same formative
influences as men-who, as Dr. Lit-
tle shows, are far less conscientious
and less truly forward-looking.
Among the lines of study indicated
as necessary to a stimulating and
utilizable equipment for women at
graduation are biology, fine arts,
literature, child care and psychol-
ogy, social service, history, econom-
ics, and international politics.
Whether the proposal thus brief-
ly summarized is practical or not
will of course be a moot question.
But there can be n odenial that
woman has a unique contribution

solidating point of view toward

Editorial Comment

(From The Daily Illini)
"Lady Astor, you're a dirty liar."
And the house of commons went
into an uproar.
Jack Jones, labor member of the
house from Silvertown has given
the house more to think about in
the last few days than it has had
for sorme time. The labor repre-
sentative has been irked at the way
Lady Astor has been interrupting
him during his speeches.
Lady Astor said that the gentle-
man in question was drunk. She
didn't say so out loud, but whis-
pered it to some of the nearby
members. Jack raged and said: "I
am not drunk, and when you use
that word I tell you you are a dirty
liar." Lady Astor said that she
didn't make, any remark about the
state of soberness, but he announc-
ed that she had been making dirty
cracks about him for a long time.
Furthermore, he mentions, she had
said things under her breath while
he was talking, and he wanted to
know what they were. Following

Finally Mr. Jones said: "I am not

Mr. Jones' statement to the effect
that he was a better man drunk
than she was sober is one of much
truth. Surely Lady Astor could
have no come-back for that no
