These monumental buildings and his far-sighted
endowment bespeak his great love for his Alma
Mater, his profession, and his country."
In the above words Mr. Cook's former secretary
characterized his benefactions to the University.
Al though the group of buildings which he
ordered constructed are finished, Mr. Cook's serv-
ice to the University has hardly begun. For years
to come students of law will benefit by his huge.
donations. In addition to the buildings, he has
given funds for the establishment of fellowships,
the purchase of books, to supplement salaries of
professors that the University might attract the
very leaders in the profession.
So the opening of Hutchins Hall is really only
one important step in the magnificent dream of
the great lawyer but it is one which carries with
it the extreme gratification of officials of the law
school, of the University, and of students for gen-
e erations to come.

Shrug Our Shoulders
And Go On...
F OR me she has done a great service.
She has been responsible for many.
happy associations, for deep and lasting friend-
ships, for an accumulation of knowledge and
culture that cannot be measured in terms of ma-
firial expressions.
This tribute, or one quite similar, will be ;under-
neath our minds one week from today as we
saunter through the Engineering Arch and. pro-
ceed down the diagonal past the medallion to
State Street-for many of us, the last time.
If we are walking alone we will possibly stop
at the drinking fountain at the side of the library,
make a pretext of drinking, wipe off our mouths
with a handkerchief, mentally shrug our shoul-
ders, and go on.
If we are with friends we will possibly say,
"Nell, this place kind of grows on you. I think;
I'll sort of miss it." Aid one friend will laugh a
laugh that is not quite a laugh and another friendj
will say, "That's what I was thinking-kind of."
And then the shoulders will be shrugged and we.
will all go on and away. We know that we are.
too cynical and afraid of others and ourselves
to express our true feelings, and probably it is
for the best.
One can never tell what it is about a place.
that he will miss. Many of the things he should
lissshe will be glad to have done, relieved to find
out of the way. It is the little things, the things
that one never knew were present that will be
laeking. So it is difficult for us-we who will not
return-to describe the various aspects of our
living here that we feel will not be filled when'
we have settled elsewhere. Certainly, we will not
tirss the conventional, the long-touted joys of,
college life. Rather we will feel an emptiness where'
the precipitation from the intangible once'

If all Wednesdays were as long as this one,F
pay day would never come, but, after all, we
shouldn't quibble about titles, of all things. They
do have to name them something.
This is plot number 37 of the scenario writers.
You know, first a few rapid shots of well-known
scenes in Paris and then we're off. Vicki (Elissa
bandi) is a dancing pupil and Ran' (Victor Jory)
a wealthy American studying architecture. As we
meet them they are about to leave on a vacation
trip but alas, Ran's wife (yet, the wretch has one)
turns up at the crucial moment and all is as it
shouldn't be.
Next, minus the shriek of the Lucky Strike
program, we fly. to South America and there Vicki
meets Phil (Warner Baxter) an engineer. Vicki
had gone there to get away from Paris after the
crash of romance, but now the theatre in which
she. had been dancing is closed, so off she goes to
New York with Phil.1
Then Paris again, and five years elapse before
we see her again-now a famous dancer. We've
been hearing a lot of how Elissa wanted to dance
and we don't blame her, for she can do it. Next
stop is New York, after some good shots of con-
'struction on Boulder Dam, where Phil is one of
the, engineers.
He has finished the job though and we meet
them both in the big city, on the eve of the last
performance of the season. Phil has chartered a
yacht (this should encourage engineering stu-
dents) and is trying to get Vicki to go on a cruise
with him, when, lo and behold, up pops Ran
again.
Now we meet Ran's wife, Miriam Jordan, who!
really shows up to advantage. Ran is still after
Vicki and wants her to leave New York with him
for a "pleasure cruise" to Paris. Does she go-
we ask you? Isn't this plot number 37?
However, although this picture won't carry you
out of your seats, it does represent some good
work on the part of Miss Landi, Baxter, ideal as
the engineer, and Miss Jordan. As a matter of"
fact, Miss Landi was so excellent in the first pic-
ture we saw her, "The Warrior's Husband," that
anything else is likely to be hurt by comparison.
She's good, there's no doubt of that, but the
story doesn't do her the justice that others might.
The same aplies to Baxter-he should have better
vehicles. -J. C. H.

ever; they said that the new dialogue effects
would make Hollywood imitative of Broadway,,
and it is true that very few good shows have come
out of the Orange and Quake belt in the last
two years that didn't originate in New York suc-
cesses.
An exception to this trend is "The Bitter Tea
of General Yen," a slow-moving, casual, superbly
sensuous, and highly artistic picturization of a
story which has no definite origin-except some-
body's desire to upset all the conventions of the
Chinese bandit story.
Barbara Stanwyck (better here than usual) is
torn from the arms of her missionary husband,
is delivered to the summer palace of General
Yen, is dressed up in oriental spangles by a
sullen concubine. Does the bandit force his at-
tentions on her? Is the concubine jealous? Does
the young missionary. swoop down in an airplane
in the last reel?
No.
With striking eccentricities in plot and ideology,
not important, perhaps, but certainly entertain-
ing, is combined a fine directorial treatment. "The
Bitter Tea of General Yen"- is a strangely beau-
tiful and bloody 'fairy tale, whose mood is pe-
culiarly suited to the freedom of the camera and
could hardly be put on a stage. Consequently, it
may be considered as one of" the early steps in
the development of an "art of the motion pic-
ture."
(NO STARS) "HER STRANGE DESIRE"
"Her Strange Desire" is an English picture
about a lady who lives in a slick new cubistic
castle. She keeps pulling out 'the lamp cord in
her boudoir so the chauffeur will come up and
fix it. I'm. afraid you won't like it very much.

BYSTANDE
WASHINGTON-Now that it's to be "Norris
dam" down in the Tennessee river develop-
ment, in honor of Senator George Norris of Ne-
braska, a lot of people will just have to revise
an old and oft-used expression.
The two words, in different order and with
slightly different spelling, have been frequently
used with each other for the last quarter century
or so in Republican old guard circles and wher-
ever private power development proponents fore-
gather.
THE Tennessee Valley authority, however, hardly.
could have hit on a more appropriate name
for the new dam. If it had not been for Norris,
it is a reasonable assumption that the Muscle
Shoals heart of the huge project upon which the
government has now embarked in the Tennessee
basin would not have been available for treatment
under the Roosevelt new deal.
The temptation to name it Franklin Roosevelt
dam or New Deal dam or something like that
must have been great, nevertheless.
Different With Johnson
SENATOR HIRAM JOHNSON probably chortled
over regular Republican discomfiture when he
read about "Norris dam." He has had experience.
After his knock-down-drag-out Senate fight to
get the Boulder canyon development on the Colo-
rado, nobody ever seemed to think about naming
that Johnson dam. Instead his fellow Californian,
Dr. Ray Wilbur, as secretary of the interior named
it Hoover dam after President Hoover. And that
certainly could not have been pleasing to John-
son.
THERE is perhaps a deal more significance to
the selection of Norris' name for the new dam
down in Tennessee than a first glance would dis-
close. The fact that he stood' guard, like Horatio
at the bridge, over the Muscle Shoals wartime de-
velopment to keep private power interests from
getting any permanent foothold there is well
enough known.
Two presidential vetoes, .by Mr. Coolidge and
Mr. Hoover, knocked down his previous bills deal-
ing with that matter.
Election Influence
THEY did more than that. They doubtless played
a part in determining Norris to get aboard

the Roosevelt-for-President bandwagon last year
early in the game. It was his analysis of the
Roosevelt water power policy, displayed in pro-
longed tussling with a hostile legislature at Al-
bany, that won Norris over.
Probably the senator now would thank Presi-
dents Coolidge and Hoover for those vetoes. He
holds that the Tennessee Valley act is a far better
solution of the Muscle Shoals matter than pro-
jected in either of his previous vetoed bills. It
has greater possibilities as an experiment in gov-
ernment partnership with business.
FROM the standpoint of folks who are strong
for a largely career foreign service for the
United States, the fact that William Phillips and
the late Representative Stephen Porter differed
over selection of the site for the American lega-
tion at Ottawa bids fair to prove important.
But for that, Mr. Phillips might still be min-
Ater at Ottawa instead of under-secretary of state
with plenty of chance to urge on President Roose-
velt the special fitness of many of his old friends
and colleagues of the career service for higher
diplomatic preferment.

Closing the Socialist Club's Public
Lecture Series, Gordon Halstead avil
speak this afternoon on "Gandhism
and Socialism." The meeting will be
at 5 p. m. in Natural Science Audi-
torium.
After graduating from Syracuse
University ,where he was well known
for his part in athletics, Halstead
spent several years on the adminis-
strative staff of Luckow University
in India. He made acquaintance with
leaders of the Indian Nationalise
Movement, until he was ordered out
of the country by the British Author-
ities, who also deported him from
Hongkong. His chief interest, how-
ever, is not the Freedom of India,
but rather the possibilities of iNon-
Violent Coercion as a substitute for
armed warfare in compelling politi-
cal and social change. His particular
study has been concerned with the
influence of Thoreau and others upon
the Gandhi movement; he is like-
wise interested in the subject of
strikes, boycotts, war-resistance and
the various forms of non-violent
coercion used to force social change
in western countries.

Music Question At
State Is Settled
EAST LANSING. Aug. 10.-()-A
six year controversy over music edu-
cation at Michigan State College was
virtually ended tonight when the
State Board of Agriculture, govern-
ing body of the institution, voted to
divorce completely the college music
department from the Michigan State
Institute of Music and Allied Arts.
The Board placed the administra-
tion of music at the college on the
same basis as any other department.
Music was made a department under
the liberal -arts division. Salaries
to instructors will be based on actual
teaching hours for classroom instruc-
tion, eliminating the controversial
see-splitting system which has pre-
vailed since 1927.
NICE HOURS ANYHOW
PITTSBURGH, Aug. 10.-(?)--For
the first time in more than a half
century, a county surveyor will be

It is one of those fee jobs. But in
case the word "fee" gives anybody
visions of that $10,000 yearly plum
that goes to the delinquent tax col-
lector, he had better investigate be-
fore he files a candidacy. The job is
worth about $8 a year.

Tan's Dream
Realized..
W ITH THE OPENING of Hutchins
Hall the latter part of this month
reat dream of a great philanthropist is vir-
realized. A member of the University's law
of 1882, William W. Cook was the dreamer,.
he lived in it from its inception until the
of his death in 1930.
uis dream was to develop a. great law school,
*d in the most inspiring of buildings aid
ed to the ideal of creating leaders of men.
ften said, 'Intellectual leadership is the
est problem which faces America today;
ut leaders we perish.' This he placed above
se.
ith these ideals in mind he proceeded with
ork. Architects and artists were dispatched
nters of learning both here and abroad in
that the law school buildings would become
ending monuments of American architecture,
lit to himself, to the University, and to the

a
l
;.

Two old timers and a comparative newcomer
team up to furnish the youth appeal in "Girl
Missing," which, though the story has been used
in pictures since Marie Dressler was a toe-dancer,
is 'genuine entertainment.
Ben Lyon is the millionaire victim of conniving
chisellers. They have their hooks on his money-
bags when Glenda Farrell and Mary Brian, a
couple of Broadway' gold diggers on the level for
once, come along and save the mint for a $25,-
000 reward.
Good casting and some classy dialogue, in their
turn, save the show from the dullness of its plot.
Glenda Farrell is a wise-cracker from way back,
and she, with able help from Lyon and Brian and
the playwright's snappy lines, makes "Girl Miss-
ing" well worth the trouble. And the fact that
Lyle Talbot's name appears in the cast reminds
us that he's a boy who is going to be extremely
well known in pictures before much longer, even
if he has little of anything to do in this show.
He did a part with Carole Lombard in "No More
Orchids" not so long ago that was first rate, no
less.

"STRANGE JUSTICE"

The rest of the double bill at the Majestic this
half of the week is pretty junky, but we'll give
it a star on the strength of the fact that good old'
Reginald Denny and equally g. o. Richard Ben-
nett are in the .cast. And we'll promise not to say
a word about Marian Marsh. She is in it too.
There seems to be no reason under the sun why
Denny shouldn't stage a full-fledged come-back.
He still has all the personal charm and appear-
ance that made "The Leather Pushers," and to
go back still farther, "Skinner's Dress Suit," long-
run hits. Furthermore, he has overcome his spdech
difficulty to a great extent,, but even RKO Radio
won't do any better by him than an embezzling
banker who repents just in time to save the boy
from the electric chair. Nor does Bennett, not
so long ago a star of the first rank among
Broadway players, draw anything more disting-
uished than the big-hearted old Irish criminal
lawyer who keeps faith in the boy through it
all. "Strange Justice" is pretty bad, but we'd go
to see it on the same principle that we'd go to
see Charles Ray again. -K. S.
