away with the disregard in which it is now held
by many students is a moot question. Certainly
authorities at Michigan have done as much as
possible to interest all students in proper regular
exercise and to encourage them to take advan-
tage of the equipment which is available. But the
necessary incentive on the part of individual stu-
dents seems to be lacking. Training in sports re-
quiring team work is of little avail to men and
k women after they have graduated from college.
What they need is an interest in some form of
physical exercise which can be carried on in later
years after they are away from the facilities now
at their command. The few upper classmen and
graduate students who make full use of Mich-
igan's fine plant today are the ones who have
learned an important lesson. If it can be taught to
. under'classmen. before it s too late a great
good will have been accomplished.

The Value Of
Physical Education...
STUDENTS, teachers, office work-
ers and others who are employed
mentally rather than physically for most of their
time have long since discovered the value of reg-
ular exercise as a means of keeping physically and
mentally fit. It was this great need for bodily le-
velopment among students that caused the out-
growth of our present athletic systems.
Coming first in the form of individual exercise,
scholastic and college sports were later developed
which would provide competition in order to in-
crease the interest on the part of the participants.
Sine the advent of team play and competition
petiween different institutions, exercise for the in-
dividual has been relegated to the background in
importance..
As a result of the over-emphasis on interscho-
lastic and intercollegiate competition, physical
development for the individuals attending nsti-
lutions of learning 'has been more or less a per-
sonal matter. With the exception of compulsory
physical training in some institutions for certain
undergraduates, little has been done to interest
mndividual students. Equipment has been provided,
instructors are on hand to offer their coaching
services, but actual participation is left to the,
students themselves.
At Michigan the situation is far better than at
most similar institutions. Not only is competition
,ithi other schools stressed, in order to attract
tle attention of those athletically inclined, but
,xtramural events arle also given wide publicity.
ComGpeition among fraternities and independent
g; ups is encouraged and individual play is avail-
able in sports where team-work is not required.
,ceptionslly fine equipment is available at all
times for all students, both men anl women, and
every effort is made to encourage them to make
full use of it. Tennis courts, golf links, tracks,
and fields are provided in proper season and year-
round equipment includes swimming pools, indoor
te;nis, squash, handball, basketball, fencing and
tack room. In addition, large gymnasiums for
calisthenic work are always open to the students

The Theatre
SHAKESPEARE'S FORGOTTEN COMEDY
WAS THOUGHT RISQUE
-By DAVID MOTT!
The Michigan Repertory Players will jump from
the modern drawing-room situations of "The
Circle" to a forgotten play of Shakespeare's for
their next production. Their production next week
of J"All's Well That Ends Well" will make the sec-
ond time that comedy has been produced in Amer-
ica (barring the performance of the Kemble edi-
tion of. the play, which was much tampered with,
at the Federal Theatre, Boston, March 8, 1799).
Mr. Thomas Wood Stevens has been the only pro-
ducer of "All's Well" since that early date. He
made, what was really a first production of it, at
the Artists' Guild Theatre in St. Louis this spring.
"All's Well" was a forgotten play in Shakespear-
ean repertoires.
Though it has been produced in England, it is
amazing that this play never found its way to
previous production in America, for the play is,
in all respects, characteristic of Shakespeare. The
character of Helena speaks in as fine Elizabethan
poetry as any of his heroines. Paroles furnishes
as sure-fire comedy as Malvolio of Toby Belch.
The play is an excellent and rowdy comedy. What
then accounts for its lack of production? The an-
swer is simply this, that inr the last century it was
considered a bit risque! Even the "divine bard
of Avon" couldn't be allowed a risque comedy.
It is needless to say that the past century's
notions of propriety seem somewhat ridiculous to-
day. ."All's Well" is a summer's breeze conipared
to many of the plays of the post-war theatre.
But here are the reasons why our grandads
woudn't hear to the play. "All's Well" is the story
of how a gentlewoman, Helena, forces her love
upon a birthproud nobleman, Bertram de Rousil-
Ion. That was regarded highly improper in the
nineteenth century. Girls didn't do the wooing in
Victorian years-or at least, not on the stage.
Moreover, Helena was a "lady doctor," and that
was one of the unmentionables in those days. This
kept the comedy from the stage.
Moreover, if you will examine the script for
"All's Well" you will find that there is no great
role for an Edwin Booth or a Henry Irving. The
great stars of the Victorian theatre used plays
with fat parts for great stars.
Shakespeare stole the plot for "All's Well" from
,Boccaccio. It is a rowdy story of how an Eliza-
bethan young lady "gets her man." But it is told
with the great dramatists' inimitable poetry. How
delightful to drop in upon a wealth of unfamiliar
work of Shakespeare's. This rare opportunity is
offered by the Michigan Repertory Players' pro-
duction of the "risque" "All's Well That Ends
Well."
Washington
Off The Record
By SIGRID ARNE
POSTMASTER General "Jim" Farley, like all
public officials, finds a gift in the mail once
in a while.
This week there was a box of shirts sent by a
manufacturer. "Big Jim" slid into one. It fitted
perfectly.
"Wonder how they do it?" he said.
He probably will be told some day. A mutual
friend intercepted his laundry bag and got the
measurements.
THE form of government in Washington must
have kept at least one of the Italian fliers
with General Balbo standing very stiffly for hours
and hours.
nHe smiled, shook hands, saluted. But he asked
no questions.
..Then at the Army and Navy club he pulled one
of the more serious-looking debutantes aside be-
tween dances and asked, "But when do we meet
the mayor?"
Evidently he had been shaking hands with
mayors at every stop.
"Oh," he smiled as- the deb explained that
Washington has no mayor-just a board of com-
missioners.

MARVIN H. McINTYRE, secretary to the Pres-'
ident, has one patronage worry that is going
to get his personal attention. .
He will take care of the man who wrote the
following note:
"Mr. McIntyre-Are you or are you not a man
of your word? Did you not promise the official
bootblack of the National press club you would
help him achieve his ambition-which is to shine
the President's shoes?"

nights of the week. But on the seventh Connery
gloomily window-shops.
TWO gentlemen had some very heart-warming
and inexpensive pleasure at the department of
justice.
The first gentleman dropped in from Maryland
to meet Attorney General Cummings. He talked
for some time with Ugo H. A. Carusi, chief sec-+
retarial assistant to Cummings. Carusi was as-'
tounded to hear him wind up:
"Well, good day. The folks back home will be
glad to know that I spoke to the head of the na-y
tion's law department."
The Marylander left smiling happily. Carusi
is also smiling to think that anyone mistook him
for his chief. And "Chief" Cummings chuckles
when he thinks of it.
About Books
By JOHN SELBY
"BAUDELAIRE," by Enid Starkie;
(G. >P. Putnam's Sons, New York)
NEW YORK-It has been for long the habit
to exhume and examine the torn and tortured
souls of the past, sometimes'in a Roman holiday
spirit, sometimes in clinical fashion, sometimes
with intent to right ancient wrongs.
Enid Starkie's "Baudelaire" is not quite in either
of those modes. Miss Starkie is a lecturer on
French literature at the University of Oxford, and
quite likely interested herself in Baudelaire
through her work. But there the poet divorced
himself from Miss Starkie's work and became a
labor of love, perhaps even an obsession.
The familiar picture of Baudelaire is that of a
perverse chap whose life was an orgy of satanism,
sadism, masochism, narcotics and the rest of the
diabolical mechanism. There was a day when pos-
session of a copy of "Les Fleurs du Mal" was
equivalent to a pass to Coventry; he was, of
course, prosecuted for publishing it, and some pas-
sages were temporarily amended.
A good deal of the picture remains after Miss
Starkie finishes. It seems evident that the man
suffered from a mother fixation, and certainly
narcotics and drink had their way with him, al-
though not to the extent the avid public once
believed.
The orgiastic picture is considerably overdrawn,
one is convinced, but with all the will in the
world and an apparently enormous labor of re-
search, Miss Starkie still cannot sort into neat
little compartments all the odd features of Baude-
laire's makeup, the curious liaison with Jeanne
Duval, the mulatto, for example.
Perhaps the truth is that the explanation of
mostof the Baudelairian puzzle lies in the fact
that Baudelaire himself was a man almost en-
tirely without will. He couldn't work, he couldn't
manage his own affairs, he couldn't even conduct
a passable love affair, chiefly because he lacked
the will to overcome his spiritual inertia.
Miss Starkie's book is a little confused at times
but extraordinarily revealing.
EditoIal Comment
POLICE PLANES
Germany's intention to push forward toward the
equality of armament which she has long de-
manded and which was tentatively allowed in a
preliminary agreement at the disarmament con-
ference was emphasized this week by the an-
nouncement that the Reichswehr already has ac-
quired a number of "police" planes.
The ostensible excuse for purchasing the planes
was a recent "air raid" on Berlin in which, the
Nazi chieftains said, hundreds of deprecatory
pamphlets were dropped by foreign reds to incite
the German people against their government. The
fact that nobody could be found who had seen
one of the pamphlets was no deterrent to the exu-
berant Nazi, who pounced on the incident as
further proof of Germany'sneed for aerial de-
fense and forthwith purchased airplanes to police
her skies.
The British air ministry was reported last week
to have interfered with the fulfillment of a con-
tract entered into between the German Reich-
swehr ministry and a British airplane company

for the construction of 60 fighting planes.
The treaty of Versailles forbids Germany to
have a military air force in the specific phrase,
"the armed forces of Germany must not include
any military or naval air forces." It was thought,
however, that the acquisition of "police" planes
would not contravene this restriction.
Germany's purpose is clear. The Versailles
treaty has been a constant lodestone around her
neck since the conclusion of the war. She has con-
tended constantly that the treaty is unfair and
has sought to bring about an amicable adjustment.
Her new move seems to be an attempt to bring
the matter to a showdown.

ANTI-GRAB BAG TACTICS
This is hot a grab bag. Such were the words of
Secretary of Interior Ickes only recently in dis-
,ussing the new $3,300,000,000 public works pro-
gram.
And Mr. Ickes has an idea about handling this
particular program which differs materially from
the running of many plans for the public good.
Rather than protesting about graft after it has
beeh perpetrated and trying to remedy it at that
late date, Mr. Ickes plans to prevent it.
He'll carry out his plan to prevent graft in this
huge project involving a greater total expenditure
than the normal annual budget of the United
States by throwing most of. the work upon the
sturdy shoulders of graft-hating Louis I. Glavis,
chief of ;the Department of Interior's bureau of
investigation.
The project would be a veritable gold mine for
grafting contractors who are eager to delve into
such a find, inasmuch as the lean years of the
depression have not yielded them such an oppor-
tunity.
