,7y,, "" :

leagues who talk dry and drink wet, Oscar is one
who practices not what he preaches. This former
B.M.O.C. is known on several occasions to have
himself clandestinely ridden a bicycle on the
campus and even roller-skated, the old devil.
Hypocrisy such as this, which we all too fre-
quently find in those men who should be our
spiritual leaders, is to be deplored. If Oscar would
come out from behind his verbose rhetoric and
state his position plainly and simply as a reformed
and penitent sinner, his communication might be
worthy considering. But coming as it does with all
t of the sincerity usually shown by politicians in
their public statements it is not worth considering.
Let us therefore disregard that letter and con-
sider the problem from a utilitarian standpoint.

Granted, to begin with, that bicycles are a nuis-
ance on the campus sidewalks, there immediately
arise several problems. The depression has re-
duced student incomes so that busses and taxis,
not to speak of automobiles, are out of the ques-
tion, so that the student who lives a mile away
from the campus must find some means of trans-
portation thereto in order to be on time for an
eight o'clock. Having ridden down to the campus
there then arises the problem of where to leave
the bike. It is obviously impossible to simply drop
it on State Street, or North, South or East Uni-
versity Avenues as Oscar suggests and if the stu-
dent is to be fairly sure that it won't be stolen
he must take it someplace near where his class
is to be, necessitating riding on the sidewalk.
Now that the powers that be have decreed that
there shall be "No Bicycle Riding on the Side-
walks," it looks as though the University were
extending the old paternalistic attitude to pre-
venting the students from having bicycles as well
as cars. If the administration would care to take
it from one who knows, it is extremely difficult to
have a date on a bicycle and manipulating one in
any condition but of strict sobriety is utterly out
of the question.
Lest, then, paternalism again raise its ugly head
in this connection, let the authorities set aside a
space similar to the numerous car parking plots
on the campus for the cyclist to leave his bike in
comparative safety. Across the Street

night together in a show-room of the store, they
are married, and the rest of the tale follows their
attempts to get away from the mother. She fol-
lows them to Niagara and, in general, proceeds
to make life miserable for them. Finally, friends
of the bride arrange a "set-up" whereby Slim will
have an opportunity to prove his prowess and thus
be weaned from his mother. Of course the trick
is successful.
The T-heatre-
Notes on the play given this week by the
Michigan Repertory Players
It is nothing new to say that Shakespeare got
his plots as best he could find them -from what-
ever source came into his ken. His habit of mull-
ing contemporary works for the materials of his
plays is well known, and he did the same thing
for "All's Well That Ends Well" that he did for
most of his other works. But as usual the finished
play had the inimitable character of his own
'With "All's Well" he stole his plot from the
"Decameron" of Boccaccio. William Painter, a
contemporary, in his widely read book, "The Palace
of Pleasure" had translated the story which is to
be found in the ninth novel of the third day in
the "Decameron." The novels of the third day
tell of those lovers who have-overcome insuperable
obstacles; they are stories of "Love's Labours
Won" - which was the original title for "All's
Boccaccio's story narrates how "Giletta, a phy-
sician's daughter of Narbon healed the French
king of a fistula, for reward of which she demand-
ed Beltramo, Count of Rossigilione, for her hus-
band. TheCount being married against his will,
for spite fled to Florence and loved another.
Giletta, his wife, by policy found means to be with
her husband in place of his lover, and was begotten
with child; which known to her husband, he
rfeived her again, and afterwards he lived in
great honor and felicity."
,The most significant features that Shakespeare
altered in Boccaccio's story are important. Helena
(Giletta) is not rich, as was the original, and rests
for all our sympathy upon the truth and intensity
of her affections. She is not the foster-sister of
Bertram, though was brought up with him. The
moral character of Bertram, the Beltramo of the
novel, is darkened --his personal beauty and
valour is emphasized. The King of France is not
present as a deus ex machina in the final recon-
ciliation. Boccaccio's tale is related chiefly for the
sake of plot, and so far as the character-portraits
of Helena, Bertram, and the King are concerned
Shakespeare's debt to his original is negligible.
There are no counterparts in the novel for the
Countess, Lafeu, Lavache or any of the persons
in the sub-plot which recounts the adventures and
downfall of Parolles.
┬░All's Well" is now associated with what was
assumed to be a lost play of Shakespeare's -
"Love's Labours Won." It was written early in
Shakespeare's career, and was a companion play
to "Love's Labours Lost." The title was probably
changed when it was Iripted in the Folio Edition
of 1623.bBk
About Books


It Won't Be
Long Now...
A FTER today, only two weeks remain
of the 193,3 Summer Session. The
activities of this short session, including the class-
Work, the lectures, the dances and the shows are
rapidly approaching a close.
The 1933 Summer Session has had more to offer
to visiting students than any other similar session,
of the past. It has gone out of its way to provide
extra-curricular activities to interest those who
are not year-round residents of the city -or regular
students of the University.
Elaborate tours have been arranged, prominent
lecturers have been procured, parties have been
planned, and athletic facilities have been provided.
University authorities have gone to every extreme
to see that the summer student's stay here is as
pleasant as it is profitable.
From all appearances and reports the program
has been exceptionally well received. The faculty
concerts, the lectures, the dances, and the many'
other affairs have been well attended. Many have
already expressed their extreme satisfaction with
the manner in which the program has been car-
ried out.
The plays presented by the Summer Repertory;
Group have been declared successful and proven
so by box office receipts. The summer band has
played to a large audie'nce each Wednesday night.;
The men who have come here from other institu-
tions to speak before summer gatherings have I
expressed themselves as being well pleased with
the receptivity of their remarks. The officials in'
chiarge of the University tours have pronounced
their satisfaction at the success of those excur-
sions which they have arranged.
We have ample reason to believe that the sum-
mer can be counted an unusual faIccess. Despite
existing economic conditions, many improvements
over past seasons have been made. and we feel
that they have not been accepted without notice.

To the Editor:
We, the following men and women voters who
sign and circulate this petition until one hundre
or more signatures are here, for delivery to news
papers, hereby make the following public demand
of our public servants: President Roosevelt, al
Congressmen, Senators, State Governor and legis
lature, mayors and city councils:
That the Roosevelt administration shall imme
diately help the total "Twenty-eight million un
employed" directly and completely by placing al
unemployed on farms in Southern states. Tha
unemployment is daily increasing from the immi-
gration legal quota, daily smuggling in of 2,000
aliens, and daily bankruptcy of business men an
college graduates unfit for honest labor. That th
public works program will wreck America as i
has England without benefiting the unemployed
and disabled veterans who this winter again wil
co4centrate in cities, the same charity and crime
That stuffed ballot-box government is the
daddy-racket of all rackets and racketeers where-
by judges, police departments and governors ex-
change criminal protection to those persons who
have put them in office by stuffing ballot boxes;
or business men racketeers who pay the price o1
ballot box stuffing for their political "elected'
friends to keep them out of jail. That any person
who says voters, elect public officials is a damn
lunatic. Wherefore we demand that our State
Legislature shall abolish precinct voting either for
consolidated voting in central voting stations of
plate glass (the election voting system of Holland
Columbia, and Carolina) or voting ballots thru
United States mail delivery and collection to be
delivered and counted in a plate glass building,
the Ballot Counting and Protection Arsenal.
Failure to circulate this petition and fight this
program to victory, means goodbye responsible
government and welcome revolution. Your gov-
ernment is what you make it. What ARE YOU?

Hitch-Hikes 1,300 Miles
To Answer Court Charge
NASHUA, N. H., Aug. 3-P)--Ray-
mond C. Cross, of Manchester,
proved yesterday that he was a man
of his word when he surrendered at
police headquarters after hitch-hik-
ing 1,300 miles from St. Louis to save
Nashua the expense of sending offi-
cers for him.
Tomorrow Cross will be arraigned
on a charge of embezzling $1,000
from the Holbrook-Marshall Co.,
wholesale grocers.
Chief Irving Goodwin, of the local
force, decided reluctantly that it
would be too expensive to send of-
ficers to bring him back.
Goodwin suggested that they re-
lease Cross if the fugitive promised
to return to Nashua. Cross assented.
Practically penniless, Cross hitch-
hiked'hisaway back, thumbing rides,
boarding freight trains and walking
when everything else failed.

Kidnapers Try
A New Trick. .
HE New York kidnapers who freed
h .Nathan Baskowitz yesterday with'
the agreement that he pay them "on time" have,
started a "payment-plan" system that is, to say
the least, unique in the history of crime.
Of course it is to be taken for granted that
such demands will not be considered seriously and
that the sum asked for in this case will not be
paid. And at the same time the case demonstrates
that racketeers will stop at nothing in their efforts;
to intimidate the public.
In this instance the abducted individual was
said to have had no funds with which to meet
aniy demands, however modest. Which fact fur-
ther demonstrates that the kidnapers are not
limiting their activities to thxe field, of, those
reputed to be wealthy but are actually attempting
to clean up all-round.
However ridiculous this recent case may seem,
it should appear as the "last straw" tossed in the
face of a public which has long since stood more
than enough. And it should add to the incentive'
of the government officials who are now hard at.
work in their attempts to cope with this greatest
of all crime waves.

The plot of "I Love That Man" takes some of
the queerest quirks and turns which it has been
our pleasure to see in a 'movie for some time. And
not such a great pleasure at that. Starting out as
a reasonably decent story, the thing soon works
itself up into a state of affairs that is unusual,
to say the very least.
Nancy Carroll, as the social service worker who
falls in love with a confidence man (Edmund,
Lowe) and follows him through thick and thin -
most of it is very thick - does much better than
has been her wont in the past. At times she is
almost convincing but hardly enough to overcome
the defects in the scenario.
Edmund Lowe is pretty good. He- has a juicy
part, that of the "con" man with the glib tongue
and the ever-so-smooth manner with ladies, and
he fills it pleasingly.
It is extremely hard to believe, however, as the
story goes along, that so smooth an individual
could be "turned straight" over-night without
being aware of the fact. Especially by such an
unassuming young person as Miss Carroll.
Lew Cody is in the film for a brief period and
Warren Hymer, as "Mousie," is given a fair role.
The other characters are all incidental in the
tale of the gal who said "whither thou goest, I
goest; thy people shall be my people" and the
man who answered her, "I shall never say any-
thing to you unless it be the truth."
The song about "gawd, how I love that man of
mine," which Helen Morgan made famous, per-
vades the picture and ,strangely enough, it is
parobably the nicest thing about the film.

"South Moon Under" by Majorie Kinnan Rawlings
(Slaster's and Wahr's. $2.50)
Mrs. Rawlings has drawn a vivid picture of the
Florida scrub country, of its tawny, unfertile sands
that sloped back to the dense, inpenetrable scrub
that repelled human living. Beneath the scrawny
oaks and pines grew gallberry bushes and mag-
nolia, brierberries and - hammock and all sorts of
ferns in great profusion. Here and there tortuous,
shallow creeks wound their 'way through the
undergrowths. The lean piney-woods country was
desolate place for a man to try to grow a living
- but it was a fine place for a man driven by fear
to hide!
Against this sinister background Mrs. Rawlings
lays the story of Old Lantry who had killed a
Revenue Officer in the Carolina mountains and
fled to the piney-woods because they were remote,
and it would be impossible to find a man once he
had disappeared into their formidable depths.
Here Old Lant's family, born of a querulous
wife, takes root in the infertile soil. They grow,
court, wed and die with the same strained slow-
ness of the scrub. Piety, Old Lant's daughter,
marries and her son, Young Lant, takes to 'shinin'
in order to support himself and his widowed
mother. Then Young Lant is driven deeper into,
the low-growing scrub, the haven of a hunted
man, by the same fear that brought Old Lant
The author has drawn with slow, deliberate
strokes, three generations of Lantrys. They are as
unusual and exotic as their background. First,
red-headed Old Lant, to whom the scrub was
sanctuary, then Piety, his favorite daughter, who"
loved the strange wilderness and last, Young Lant,
"the true child and man of the scrub." This
completes the cycle. Only one other person is of
prime importance. Kezzy, as indomitable as the
scrub itself, who proved herself a true woman of
the piney-woods when she married the man sher
loved, though he had killed her husband.
Like their more northern brothers, the hill-
billies of Kentucky and Virginia and the Carolinas,
there is no primness or nicety in the language of
the Lantrys and the Jacklins. Names and insinu-
ations that would call. for reckonings elsewhere
are handed out here with the kindest of meanings.
The whole language is filled with terse, masculine
humor. The dialect, which sounds authentic, is
not sluggish but colorful and readable. The situ-
ations and incidents that make up the lives of
these simple people are as often humorous as
tragic. The story of the outlander who fenced
off his cow pasture is grand folk humor. Minor
characters, woven through the fabric of the
