A Process. ..
IE, if we may philosophize, is a
" ~dairy and we are the cream,' the
top of the bottle'
Even since we began our education in the public
schools we have been skimmed away from. the milk
and put in new bottles. When we rose to the top'
we were skimmed off and put in still other bottles
to settle and rise to the top..
It began in grade school. We were given six
years to find our places; then we were taken away
with the rest of the cream and aput in junior high
school. The bluish milk was thrown aside and the
bottle washed out and put to use again.
In junior high school we were given three years
and then the process was repeated. Some of the
cream turned out to be milk and was thrown away.
The cream that was at the top was whiter and
thicker than before. We went to high school.
Here the dairy process worked again, and again'
The top of the cream bottle was taken away and
graduated. The top of the top of the cream went
on to college. It was very white and very thick.'
Incollege we settle for four years, then the cream.
the very very top of the bottle is sent out into the
world, very white, very thick, perhaps a little sour.
What happens to the milk that is thrown aside?
You see it all around you. It turns up, in strange
places, behind a lawnmower, driving a garbage
truck, cleaning streets - behind the president's,
desk in a big bank.
And the cream? Behind a lawnmower, driving,

conditions in general are improving and will con-
%inue to improve. If the actual increase is slight,
the present figures will have shown that people
are "looking upward" anyway.
Another conclusion which might be reasonably
drawn from this hopeful picture is the fact that
the University, despite the present financial low-
tide, is continuing to attract prospective students
from all over the country. The successful manipu-
lation of the budget for next year, arranged by the'
administrators in such a fashion as to result in
the least possible amount of harm to the institu-
tion, is undoubtedly one of the big reasons why
the University of 'Michigan continues to attract
high school graduates, despite the fact that, finan-
cially, the University is not the institution it was
twelve months ago.
Within a reasonably short time records will
demonstrate whether or not much of an increase
in enrollment over last year has actually taken
place. But advance applications have already
shown that Prosperity is trying, at least, to get
around that proverbial corner.
About Books
"ONLY THE LIVING ARE CONCERNED
WITH LIVING"
"AS THE EARTH TURNS"
By Gladys Hasty Carroll
(Slater's and Wahr's, $2.50)
Unless I am radically wrong, there is coming
along with the Reconstruction Plan, a new trend
In the novel: a return to good, solid normalcy.
The School For. Cruelty (the uncalled-for sav-
agery of the disillusioned) after a day's riot, roar
and streets-running-with-blood, is fading into a
more peaceful twilight. The new dawn of fiction
will concern itself wth a normal, more human,
subject matter. Sincerity of conception and
method will replace artificiality, repulsiveness and
a straining of rhetoric to acquire literary effects.
Pearl Buck's "The Good Earth," a splendid
piece of naturalness and simplicity in writing,
served as a signal novel for a branch of this
return to sincerity. Perhaps, the most important
branch.
"As the Earth Turns," by Gladys Hasty Carroll,
is another definite step in this direction. This
novel depicts the lives of Mark Shaw and his
family-there are fourteen about the kitchen
table at one time, not counting the two in the
little grave-yard there beyond the garden-their
good fortune and bad, during the time it takes
the earth to turn about the sun.'
If the novel has a chief character, it is the
farm. The tragedies and triumphs of the indivi-
dual characters-and they are all individual- are
so intrinsically patterned through the daily life of
the farm that disassociation is impossible. It is
this quality, plus a penetrating insight and warm
understanding of the people she works with, that
gives the realistic quality the author achieves.
No one but a native could have done it. It is a
fine, honest work, a faithful and sincere portrait
as beautiful and smooth as the seasons that flow
into one another.
Mark Shaw, the father, deep-rooted, elemental
and, at times, inarticulate, hands on his traditions
to John. Jen, the oldest daughter, whose pa-
tience, cheer and amazing ability to get a dinner
-and what dinners!-on the table while it's still
hot, is a little too idealized. Yet you accept her,
hesitating only because she seems to get too
much done too quickly. Ed, who married the
school teacher last March-March is in between
seasons--is a true son of the soil, diligent, silent,
tireless. But Olly, who went clear to California
with his college debating team, is made of differ-
ent stuff. He'll be a lawyer. Lize and Lois May,
who left the farm for the city, are making good
money now. Their underthings are real silk, not
just raygn. Saucy little Bun, who likes to jump
on the new-mown hay with little John, isn't going
to tramp down so many loads of hay anymore.
Not because she isn't as strong as John. Gosh,
no. But she's getting older now and "girls have
to be careful." Jen told her so, but didn't make
it clear enough so she could tell it to John.
Ralph, who ran away and became an aviator,
got killed in a crash. That was along during the
summer. They had the funeral in the parlor. Peo-
ple don't go in the parlor very often. It's just for
company and weddings and funerals. But the
kitchen always teems with life and smells with

delicious food; with baked beans and pickles and
pies, with jams and jellies and fried ham, and
with cakes and cookies and chicken fixed with
dumplings. The Shaws are industrious, and have
plenty to eat.

Musical Events

THE FACULTY CONCERT
A successful concert last night marked the end
of the faculty series of musical offerings for the
summer. The brunt of the program, was carried
by Professor Brinkman, who acted as "accompan-
ist" as well as soloist. In the Pizzetti Trio, his
consistent cooperation was manifest, for his part
bound the whole together. It is not to be inferred
that the violin and 'cello work was not adequate,
for it most certainly was, the dialogue between
the two having plasticity and cohesion, but the
piano set the tempo, the spirit of the Trio. The
string qualities were well contrasted, Professor
Besekirsky's tone having a clear, vitality, and
Professor Pick's a viola character.
In the romantic group Professor Brinkman dis-
played a study in traditional style. The Schu-
mann abegga variations, young and naive, had the
romance of a frilly lace Valentine. The Liszt "Son-
netto" all the romance that rich tone, heart-
lifting melody and lilting ornamentation can
conjure up by association with the name Liszt.
The pensive C-sharp minor Prelude. contained two
elements of the period, sentimentalizing and glit-
tering technical display. The group closed with
the A-major Intermezzo of Brahms, restrained in
romance, but laden with gentle melody and me-
ticulous phrasing. The virtuoso elements existed.,
but were secondary in the performance of this
group, the romance foremost. For an encore, Pro-
fessor Brinkman continued the type by playing
a Chopin Valse.
The .first performance of Vaughn Williams "On
Wenlock Edge" found a capable interpreter in
Professor Hackett. Impressionistic in nature, it
leaves nothing to be desired in the way of charm,
feeling, or spontaneity. Of the five songs in the
cycle, From Far, From Evening~ and Morning;
Is That My Team Ploughing; When I Was in
Love With You;. Bredon Hill; Clun; the third has
humor, the fourth is the most intense and the
last has a vivid tune. The folk quality, idealized
for concert music, was felt in the performance.r
The accompaniment of piano and string quartet
gave an ensemble feature to the work, though the
solo work stood out markedly.-
Ease of delivery, simplicity of presentation in-1
evitably distinguish a professional performance. i
Such was the character of last night's concert,
with the addition of warmth of personalities.
--Sally Place.

Facing Serious
Building Need
(Continued from Page 1)
the country makes such a procedure
an absolutee necessity.
Professor Bennett declared that
numerous municipal housing projects
will shortly be undertaken in the
United States with funds furnished
by the Federal government in its
$3,300,000,000 public works program.
These projects, he said, will be in-
tended exclusively to 'help rid the
country of its slums, and will effect
only a class which is little concerned
with commercial apartments.
"The owners of our large apart-
ment houses, many of which are now
badly in need of tenants," he said,
"will never bring their rents down to
a point where the people of the slums
can benefit' by them, no matter how
badly off the real estate market may
be."
Two classes of Federally subsidized
projects will be. beg(un soon, Profes-
sor Bennett said. The first is .the
limited dividend corporation, which
can realize not more than five or six
per cent profit from its investment
and may borrow up to 70 per cent of
the cost from the government, while
the other will cover outright grants
to municipalities for public works
approved by the secretary of the in-
terior.
Asked whether the present revolu-
tion in favor of planned large scale
housing will be likely to bring about
a more conservative trend in Ameri-
can architecture, Professor Bennett
was hopeful but not' strongly opti-
mistic.
"The short life of buildings in the
United States today," he said, "is due
not so much to unsubstantiality as
to obsolescence. The buildings are
torn down 10 or 15 years after their
construction not because they are
worn out or inadequate structurally,
but because they are out of style.
And, because competition will proba-
bly get into full swing once 'more as
soon as the country is really on its
feet again, it seems likely that the
old process will continue, just as
people will begin to speculate in
stocks again."

Professor alcone's
Summer Organization. . .
O NE of the extra-curricular activities
of the summer months that is of
great value to the University and to Summer-
Session students has received little publicity in
proportion to its worth. This is the summer band,
which offers concerts each Wednesday night on
the front steps of the Malin library.
Under the direction of Prof. Nicholas Falcone,,
who also conducts the Varsity Band each year,
summer school students are given an opportunity
to participate in an activity which affords enter-
tainment while at the same time providing practi-
cal experience. Many of the members of the sum-
mer musical organization are directors of small
bands themselves and, through the system of
allowing various ones in the group to lead the
band on different occasions, practical knowledge-
in conducting is thus provided.
The informality of the proceedings which take
place at the center of the campus each week lends
to a general appreciation of the outdoor concerts.
Professor Falcone and Summer Session officials
are to be highrly complimented upon thus provid-
ing a useful divertisement for the students in
general and for those who are members of the
band in particular.

Ain Increase
In Enrollment? ..

O NE hopeful indication is to be
gleaned from the increase in ad-
vance applications recently announced by the
registrar's office for the coming scholastic year.
Whether or not the increase actually materializes
to the extent that the applications .indicate, an
imgportant trend will have been illustrated never-
theless.
According to Registrar Smith, the underlying
reason for the current influx of applicants lies in
the fact that the general financial condition which
has existed throughout the country has held many
students eligible for college entrance at home,

Gerrard, a comparative newcomer to the film

Editorial Comment
EMANCIPATION
Future children born in Germany will not be
inflicted with patriotic (as "patriotism" goes)
first names. No longer will the diminutive
Dutchies sport such weighty handles as Adolph
Hitler Schmaltz or Gretchen Hilda Hitler Blum-
berg.
The government just won't have it.
In an order coming from the seat of Germany's
power, Berlin, it is written that the name of the
Iron Chancellor or any variation in masculine
or feminine form as the first name for babies
shall not be used in the future.
In America, many fond parents will continue,
we suppose, to follow the' time-honored custom of
prefixing "Franklin Delano Roosevelt" to the fore
of their youngsters' comparatively obscure sur-
names, and, when new chief executives take of-
fice, they too will have the somewhat doubtful
satisfaction of seeing many of the country's young
crowned with their names.
The matter, which on the face of "it, would
seem inconsequential, elates us not a little. Here
may- be said to be a real victory for new-born
children. They're such puny, defenseless crea-
tures, anyway .
