price" for talent in the field of education, and
that that price always has been much lower than
it should be, {then the average citizen would not
feel so strongly as he does .regarding the amount
necessary to operate a first class educational
And legislators would perhaps realize that, in
attempting to cope with such a problem as is, now
offered with the current cut in appropriations, the
administrative officials of the University are doing
their dead-level-best to keep the institution up to
its former high standard while at the same time
judiciously attempting to balance the budget
which has been forced upon them.
One of the outstanding members of the depart-
ment of classical languages has already proffered.
his resignation to administrative officials. He was
one of the men responsible for the fact that Mich-
igan possesses one of, if not the, leading depart-
ment of its kind in this country today. At a time
when, unfortunately, most universities and col-
leges have allowed the instruction of the classics
to decline. Yet this man is leaving and his loss can
be directly attributed to the fact that he would
not, under the new budget, be allowed the remun-
eration which he has'every right to expect.
There have been others to leave at this time.
There probably will be more. 'Those who must
parcel out the funds left to the institution are
powerless to stop this inroad upon the faculty. The
only thing which can stop it is a wider dissemi-
nation of the true facts in the case among the
taxpayers and voters of the state.
i Comm~on
A MQNG the exceptional facilitiesof
the University Summer Session is
C one, the special lecture series, which provides an.
opportunity for all students to make almost daily
additions to their fund of general information and
learning. Since attendance at the lectures, given
by men of prominence from many parts of the
world, is entirely optional, they indeed represent
an opportunity in the best sense of the word.
It is to be assumed, then,that those who make
up the audience in Natural Science Auditorium at
these five o'clock sessions are there because they
choose to be there; that they have come to listen
to the day's speaker, and not out of idleness or
empty curiosity
And still, young as the 1933 series is as yet, it
has been all too evident that a certain portion of
the audience is not genuinely interested in the lec-
tures. Trivial but irritating disturbances, have been
noticeable repeatedly, and on certain occasions
persons have been so rude as to leave.the audito-
rium during the course of the addresses.
Academic and educational considerations aside,
quiet and attentiveness in a voluntary audience at
a public lecture is a matter of. pure, garden variety
courtesy and decency. If those who hear these lec-
tures were forced, even indirectly, to attend, ex-
cuses might be made. But since, in this case, those
who come could, had they preferred, have re-
mained away, it is certainly not too much to ex-
pect that they pay the speaker at least the respect
diue one human being to another and submerge
their own impulses to vocal expression and phys-
gcal agitation tp whatever consideration of polite-
ness-they recognize.

rcmantic thriller with Claudette Colbert and Ben
Lyon in the leading roles, and Ernest Torrence

Cavanaugh, for years a Broadway comedian and
:.tage star in the larger cities, plays a reporter pal
of Ben Lyon in the picture
based on Max Miller's best-
selling book and directed by
James Cruze.
Al Hill, who plays the part
of a particularly toughchar-
¢aster in the film, knows in-
timately the underworlds of
most of the world capitals,
{and Y3, his 'own 'published ad-
missions, has seen the inside
of jails as guest of the au-
thorities. Torrence, in the pic-
ture, wins the title as Holly-
wood's champion spitter, in
one scene putting out Ben Lyon's cigarette with a
well-aimed squirt of masticated navy plug.
The story concerns the activities of a young
newspaperman (Lyon) and his attempts to "get
the dope" on a smuggler (Torrence.) .-Claudette
Colbert plays the part of Torrence's daughter,
with whom Lyon falls in love.
As the story unravels, the smuggler is finally
killed in his attempts to get away from govern-
ment agents, the newspaper reporter is wounded,
and returns from the hospital to find that the
girl is waiting for him.

The University Fac-uly
1egins To Suffer ...4
' FEW MONTHS AGO, when the
. State Legislature was seriously
considering just what might be done in the way of
r.dueing ,appropriations to the University, the ad-
ministrative officers of this institution invited the
members of both houses at Lansing to come t
Ann-Arbor and "talk things over."
Those members of the Legislature who were in-
terested enough and- open-minded enough to ap-
,preciate the opportunity to get first-hand infor-
imaion in this manner accepted the invitation and
,thered at the Michigan Union one afternoon.
They were met by officers of the University
iyho carried with them all available information
rgarding the expenses incurred in operating this
great educational plant.-Deans and other officials
representing the various departments of the Uni-
versity were on hand to answer any questions
which might arise as to the opeiation of thei re-
spective units.
President Ruthven addressed this grOup of leg-
islators, explaining, as well as possible in the shor
time he was given, the workings of the adminis-
trative forces of the institution. He told of the
check that was being kept upon the numbers of
instructors in certain departments, as compared
With the relative number of students who attended
sasses in those departments. He told of the aver-
age salary paid to instructors, professors, and
other members of the faculty. He compared these
fj ures with those of other similar institutions
*Qswing how Michigan had become one of the
Mrst rank universities of the nation. And, finally
,he explained to the interested law-makers that
there existed a "market-price" which had to be
paid for a highly-educated man of rank in any
particular field, in order to hold him to an insti-
it-tion of learning.
It was the final statement of the President's
which should have had the most marked effect
upon his listeners. For it was the elucidation of a
matter which has never had much publicity and
concerning which the average citizen knows little.
Where do college professors come from? Are
they men who have entered the teaching profes-
sin after receiving an academic degree, later
,working up gradually to positions of higher rank?
In -most instances, they are. Often they receive
their promotion at the same institution which
gave them their collegiate training. But' the fact
which must be remembered is that, aside from a
feeling of what might be termed "patriotism,"
there is nothing which binds them to the institu-
tion which gave them their higher education.
'So soon as a college professor becomes promi-
nent in his field, he acquires a "commercial" value
in the eyes of similar educational institutions. He
receives .offers-often quite flattering and desir-
able as compared with his former earning capa-
city. In a profession that is and always has been
ptably underpaid, there is only one alternative
for such a man who finds himself wanted by an-
other school. He can look to his future and the
welfare of his family or he can disregard all offers
and remain where he is, whatever the cost.
Strangely enough, most highly educated indivi-
dyals, with a different sense of values than the
ayerage person, prefer a position which offers op-
poxtunity for research, etc., in preference to one
which offers immediate financial remuneration.
As a consequence, flattering offers have often
failed to change. the residence of a campus pro-
fessor. The time comes, however, when he can no
longer afford to turn deaf ears to outside pleas,
and if his home institution cannot meet him at
least half way, he is forced to leave.
The situation which exists at 'the University of
Michigan today is one which is conducive to a
"change of address" for many prominent men.
Not .only are the administrative officials of the

most capable actresses, heads the cast of "The
Secrets of Wu Sin," which opens today at the
This film casts Lois as the daring girl reporter,
who invades the mysterious haunts of Chinatown
to help her editor smoke out the head of a coolie
smuggling racket.
Grant Withers is seen opposite her in the role
of editor, who loves-her. Blonde Dorothy Revier,
who recently scored in "Beauty Parlor" and "The
King Murder," plays Grant's jealous fiancee and
the veteran Robert Warwick is cast as her father.
A particularly interesting member of the cast
is Toshia Mori, the little Japanese beauty, recently
honored bythe Wampas in their annual selection
of the season's twelve baby stars, young players for
whom early stardom is predicted. Toshia plays an
important role in the sensational "Bitter Tea of
General Yen.-
Eddie Boland, whose current films include
"Hard to Handle" and "Child of Manhattan;"
Tetsu Komai, importantly cast in "Island of Lost
Souls," Richard Loo and Luke Chan, both seen
in "Bitter Tea of General Yen," and Jimmie Wang
complete the cast. "The Secrets of Wu Sin's was

-To The Editor:
It is well known, in spite of the fact that no
newspaper has printed the story, that many in-
structors and assistants have already been dis-
missed, not to return next fall. Many more have
been given only part-time work at less than half
of their former salaries. In view of the fact that
many of the dismissed instructors have wives and
families, the situation assumes a pathetic aspect.
To replace the assistants and instructors, assis-
tant professors and in many cases full professors
are going to teach elementary courses; the same
courses taught, only with salaries three and four
times as great, as those of the former instruc-
tors. This is a new way of saving money known
as "economy a la administration."
Previous to the closing of the spring term, fig-
ures had been placed in the hands of the adminis-
tration, which showed that the University could
be operated within the limits of its income without
dismissing a single employe, without reducing
anyone's salary below a decent living wage, and"
without raising tuition.
- Some of the more humane professors suggested
that every one take a 25 per gent cut and lay off
no one. This would have solved the problem. But
instead of taking this advice, because they were
afraid to establish a precedent, the administration
made the instructors bear the burden; sent many
of them to swell the ranks of the 18,000,000 un-
employed and reduced the salaries of the rest be-
low the minimum standard required for decent
Besides the untold hardship which their dis-
missal will cause the instructors and their fam-
ilies, this will mean a lowering of the educational
standards at Michigan; 'it puts another blot on the
record of this administration.
No one need be surprised if they see men wear-
ing black veils on the campus. These men will be
departmental heads and the members of the ad-
ministration who are ashamed of their complicity
in this crime and if their hands are red, it is only
the blood of the children, wives, and dependents
of those instructors who have been turned out
that has stained them.

the. general weal will prob-
ah-there's one mighty sad
assertion that accuracy in


weather forecasts will be stepped up about 30 per!
cent by a new plan of weather forecasting.
What will some of our conversationalists find to
talk about?
Perhaps they'll have to change their tone and
cease to speculate on the accuracy of meteorolo-
gists' predictions. Perhaps they'll have to be con-
tent with the fact that aviation will be made safer,
lives will be in much less danger, and thousands
of dollars will be saved annually.
Irving Krick, who is considered the man behind
the plan, worked with the Western Air express
and under the sponsorship of Prof. Robert A. Mil-
likan to perfect the plan. Aided by data supplied
by weather bureau stations from all parts of the
country and taking into consideration the move-
ments of air masses and speeds at which they
travel, Mr. Krick can compile through mathe-
matics a chart showing what weather may be an-
ticipated over certain areas.
We see in the system a greatly brightened fu-
ture for aviation, a saving, perhaps for those who
rely on weather in their business, and a far more
intelligent outlook on the part of the average per-
son regarding that universally discussed topic-
the weather.

With the Aid of the









Continued reduction in the admission price to
Iowa athletic events as announced recently is in
accordance with the times. It is a welcome move
to students who have been wondering how they
can loyally support their teams without over-
stretching their pocket books.
The new price range for football games is the
lowest in history for Big Ten competition at Iowa.
The two major contests will cost patrons only
$1.50 each, while for the season's opener with
Bradley Tech the general admission is set at $1.
Coupon books for admittance to all home football
and basketball games, formerly priced at $8.50,
will be available for $5 this fall.
The economic stress of the times is, of course,
the principal reason for the price reduction. The
action, however, is 'also evidence of a determina-
tion on the part of the athletic administration to
go more than half way in making Iowa's greatest
sporting events available to those who wish to
enjoy them.
There is little doubt that the drastic price re-
duction will go far toward bringing the crowds to
which the Iowa stadium and the Iowa team are
entitled. They should prove popular with old
friends of the university and should do much to-
ward the enlistment of new ones.
