The Summer Michigan Daily
welcomes any comment that
its subscribers and readers may
have to offer. The editors will
cheerfully print any commun-
ications that are submitted to
them regarding editorial poli-
cy of the paper, campus or ex-
tra-campus events, and opin-
ions on any'subject within rea-
son and decoium. The only
stipulation is that the writer's
name be attached to the ar-
ticle, and whereas only initials
will , be used, the names are
required for reference.
THE RECEPTION
The reception held tonight for1
the Summer Session students and
faculty is a manifestation of one
of those pleasant little community
entertainments that are practicable
only in an institution with an en-
rollment similar to that of this
summer's session. Too often and
too unavoidable is the situation
wherein there is an austere bar-
rier between pupil and professor,
due to the unfortunate circum-1
stance of mass production in edu-
cation, i.e., our heavily populated
universities. In the Summer Ses-
sion, however, an entirely differ-
ent spirit rules. The student pop-
ulation is relatively small and pro-
fessors may meet their studentsy
socially as well as academically.
The Summer Session function to-
night is one of those levellers that'
tend to reduce unfortunate bar-
riers to a full and complete under-
standing of professor by pupil and
pupil by professor. In addition to
that it is more. It is a mixer for
the student body themselves. It

serves as a medium for forming
new acquaintances among a group
who, for thermost part, are strange
to each other.
And so the reception tonight in1
the League building should be ap-
preciated as not only the means of
a single evening's entertainment,'
but also as holding potentialities'
for future friendships and contacts.

CONSERVATION
Convictions resulting from viola-
tions of the conservation laws in
Michigan during the month of May
numbered 273, and the total fines
and costs amounted to $6,070.75 ac-
cording to the latest report of the'
department of conservation. These!
figures are gratifying in the ex-:
treme for they indicate that the
protection of the wild life in the
state has been complete and effi-
cient. The arrests and convictions
were for offenses ranging from
hunting deer without a license to
taking undersized fish.9
Michigan is one of the states
of the union possessing a very large
area of game country. The north-k
ern peninsula is almost virgin
country with its woodlands and for-1
ests full of deer, beavers, and
gamebirds, and its streams heavily1
stocked with fish. The vastness]
of this wilderness, and the small

have done exceptionally meritori-
ous.
It is indeed a sad reflection on
human character that so many of
our citizens violate the laws which
have been laid down to protect the
game, and to preserve in its origi-
nal condition the unpopulated sec-
tion of the state. When it is real-'
ized that observation of these laws
by everyone will result in so many
benefits, in a greater abundance1
of fish and game, in the maintain-
ing of a beautiful vacation ground,
and in the preservation of primi-
tive America, the action of these
violators shows poor sportsman-
ship and a boorish disregard for
the interestsdofgtheir fellow men.
The highest degree of punishment
which can be legally given them is
no more than deserved.
It should be realized by sports-
men and vacationists that it is to
their own advantage to obey the
conservation laws. The urge to
hunt, trap, or fish should be reg-
ulated by the rules governing such
matters. After all, American wild
life is certainly fated to disappear
in time, and it will not better mat-
ters to hasten the day by reckless-
ly destroying the little that re-
mains.

"THE CASSILIS ENGAGEMENT"
A Review by William J. Gorman
.St. John Hankin's comedy is in
the great English tradition which
makes of comedy a weapon of the
intellect for theannouncement of
an idea or for an attack on senti-
ment. Lest this seem too great an
insult to the many good comedies
in tihs tradition, it should be im-
mediately explained that in the
case of "The Cassilis Engagement,"
the intellect is somewhat thin, the
idea not At all new or important,
the presentation of it weak and
only mildly amusing. A wise little
lady of family, whose adolescent
son has nursed a naive,.little pas-
sion for a pretty cockney gold-
digger to the point of getting him-
self engaged to her, recognizes the
futility of opposing such ideal love
and puts into practice a plan of
killing it by kindness. In three
acts all the son's delicate senti-

iIn Radburn, N. J., some thought-
ful people have been trying to con-
struct an ideal community, and
they have found sensible answers
to some of these questions. "Streets
are for automobiles," they said,
"and sidewalks are for pedestrians;
but why should the two be to-
gether?" They found no good rea-
son but many reasons for separat-
ing the two as far as possible.
So in Radburn they moved the
sidewalks to the rear of the houses,
to the far side from the motor car
street. Maybe this will result in
the perking up of both sides of the
houses so that there will be no
front and back. At any rate it is

the eager attention and applause
which the audience gave her two
short appearances was ample rec-
ognition of its merit. Mildred Todd
was quite too conscious of her vul-
garity to be convincingly vulgar;
she could not conceal from the
audience all of the strain of her
effort to mold herself to the part.
Miss King did not dominate the
scene as she should have; in her
hands the part was a bit too stiff
and uninteresting and became con-
sequeritly a minor part. Freda Mc-
Millan's altogether healthy success
with caricature deserves commen-
dation; her frequent appearances

8/lectric Cookery Seals-In
the Flavor!
An electric range cooks without evaporating the natural
juices in the food. The delicious natural flavors are sealed
in. Here is the chief reason why electric cooking tastes
better. Puddings, vegetables and meats (even the
cheaper cuts) are cooked to a rich and melting tenderness.
You can enjoy electric cookery in YOUR kitchen NOW. Convenient
time payments and a liberal allowancefor your present
cooking equipment make it unusually easy for you
to install a MODERN electric range. Come
in and inspect the many new models.
