make good the loss. Facts recently disclosed have
shown that this is what often happens.
Fraternities must, as private institutions, look
largely to local police officers for the protection
of their property. University buildings, however,
are supposedly given additional protection
;fthrough the presence of night watchmen. These
individuals make their required rounds at speci-
fied times, taking care to see that doors are locked,
lights are off, and that things in general are in
order. It is easily possible, under this system, for
anycne acquainted with the procedure to remain
in rooms of certain buildings-apparently as stu-
dents who are there for the purpose of studying-
and then, after the doors are locked and the
watchman has just left on one of his rounds, to
take what they wish and make an easy getaway.
Since the doors, even when locked, open outward,
this latter procedure is a simple one.
This presumably is what has happened in many
instances in the past. The watchman in charge
of a particular building is not at fault, for his
duties are probably numerous enough to preclude
any possibility of his searching each nook and
cranny of a building in order to make sure that
someone has not hidden in preparation for a theft.
And yet, under the present system of protection,
s this seems to be the only solution to the matter.
That the situation is acute cannot long be
doubted. For many months thieves have had a free
hand in Ann Arbor; when they get the upper
hand with the University it is certainly time that
something be done.
Many instructors, having already lost valuable
property, will no longer take essential equipment
into University buildings. They leave their type-
writers and other aids at home. Naturally they
are hampered by having to do so. There is no
logical reason why they should be forced to adopt{
such measures. Certainly the crime wave in a city
r of the proportions of Ann Arbor has not become
° so great that its leading institution, the Univer-
sity, must become intimidated by a handful of or-
ganized sneak-thieves. The time has come for
some form of organized action against the persons
who have so successfully looted Ann Arbor build-
ings for these many months. If it is even neces-
sary to enlarge the size of the protective organi-
E zation now on hand to cope with such matters,
then, we say, it must be done. Certainly we are
- in no position to say that the situation as it has
existed for so long must continue and that we are
powerless to stop this merciless looting of prop-
erty.

FACULTY CONCERT
By SALLY PLACE
Last night's was an inspired concert! From the
first stimulating statement of the organ to the last
sweeping flourish of the trio, the pitch of the con-
cert was exciting, thrilling. Mr. Christian's dignity
and control only emphasized these qualities. The
organ group set the example for the evening: it
reached peaks of volume in "Carillon Sortie"
(Mulet), veered to breath-taking pianissimo in
"Benedictus" (Reger), struck off sparks of feeling
in Pastel" (Karg-Elert). The first set the motion
and emotion underlying the performance; the
strident melodic lines blended into eager music.
The melting modulations of the second, the sheer
thematic line brought a new element of uplifting
peace, while the third number, beginning in a
pastorale (a fortunate combination of pastel and
chorale!) mood, strengthened and built to the
climaxing chorale.
Mr. Hackett's group then continuec on this ur-
gent structure in Brahm's "Auf den Kirchofe.'
Its mood changes to end vividly but peacefully.
"Feldeinsamkeit" was sung lyrically, unhurriedly,
and the Brahms group concluded in a vivacious
turn with "Wahrend des Regens." Mr. Hackett
surely demonstrated his love of Brahms in his
fluency, his beautiful phrasing, his warmth of
tone. Even after this there was no let-down, how-
ever. "Im Zitternden Mondlicht Wiegen," though
in a softer mood, spun out the thread of inspira-
tion. Mr. Hackett repeated the last phrase of this
song, and did it as successfully as he did the
whole. He concluded with "Liebesfeier" (Wein-
gartner) on a height of exuberance and good
spirit. For an'encore he sang charmingly another
Brahms, "Es Traumte Mir." Mr. Brinkman's ac-
companiments displayed intuition and sympathy,
thoroughly complementing Mr. Hackett's finesse.
The trio carried on. Andreae's Second Trio in
E-flat Major (in four movements, not three, as
previously stated) while somewhat enhervating in
its length and richness, proved a good choice for
this program. It was an especially apt vehicle
for expert cello work such as Mr. Pick is capable
of, the high tones on the A string being particu-
larly effective. Mr. Besekirsky's suave tone and
Mr. Brinkman's agile ground-work assured the
maintenance of the distinctive feature of the con-
cert. The ensemble spirit was plastic; movement,
inner activity, made clear and flowing, kept the
inspired, yet human, pitch of the concert ever
present.
Quite a bit has been said recently about mass
acceptance of good music. True, there was a large
and responsive audience at the concert, but it was
disappointingly untrained in courtesy. Interrup-
tions by stirring and restlessness after the first
movement of the trio, and departures during the
last, marred the receptive attitude of those pres-
ent. By the time the next concert comes, the au-
dience will know what to expect and will surely re-
main until the last note is played.
This one establishing a precedent, the following
concerts should be worth any amount of time.
The Theatre
"UNCLE TOM'S CABIN"
IS MEAT FOR ACTORS
By DAVID MOTT
Actors have looked jealous-eyed at the members
of the original "Abie's Irish Rose" company-that

Harris for the rest of his natural life--(God rest
his soul!)
The original company died in their tracks play-
ing "Uncle Tom." But all was not rosy, the pop-
ularity of the piece was a dangerous thing for
the 'actors acting it. For it was an abolitionist
document, you will remember, and abolitionists
were unpopular both in North and South. Per-
formances of the play were always accompanied
by some sort of rioting-n some occasions more
violent than others. But the actor's life is hard
at best, and as "Uncle Tom" was a sure way of a
salary, there was no difficulty ever in finding casts
for the play. Indeed, if the casts that have played
"Uncle Tom" could be counted, they would num-
ber a regular "Coxey's Army." Almost every actor
of any reputation in the past eighty years has at
some time or other appeared in a production of
the play.
At the most recent revival of "Uncle Tom's
Cabin," at the Alvin Theatre in New York last
month, an all star cast played the old drama. The
list of players included: Otis Skinner, Pay Painter.
Mary Nash, Cecelia Loftus, Elizabeth Risdon
Joanna Roos, and Minnie Dupree.
Actors famous in history have appeared in the
play during the eighty-one years of its existence:
Joseph Jefferson, William Warren, John Gilbert,
and William Lemoyne who became favorites on
the New York stage; Lotta and Mary McVickar,
afterward the wife of Edwin Booth played both
Tcpsy and Eva on different occasions-in short,
the leading members of every dramatic company
of record in the United States from 1852 until
William A. Brady's revival of "Uncle Tom" in 1901
with Theodore Roberts and Wilton Lackaye. Other
notable names of those who have played in "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" are such as Lawrence Barrett, John
McCullough, Louis James, David Belasco, the
Dolly Sisters, Mary Pickford, Maude Adams, Fay
Templeton, Minnie Maddern Fiske, Henrietta
Crosman.
The part of Topsy was sometimes acted by men;
records show that John Drew's uncle, Frank Drew,
and Fred Stone appeared in it.
Once again a company is ready to put up "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" on the boards. This time it is the
Michigan Repertory Players. Tonight the curtain
will rise again on the greatest grease-paint curios-
ity of all times. The local acting company will
take up the roles that have served for some of
the greatest figures in the American theatre.
A\Washington
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON-It is a fair assumption that
with the voluntary acceptance of a 16-year min-
imum age limit for cotton textile mill employes by
the framers of the first "fair practice" code to be
brought forward under the national recovery act's
provisions, a long stride toward abolition of child
labor in American industry was taken.
It may be an open question whether the ex-
pressed hope of Miss Frances Perkins, secretary of
labor, that such a result should come about "by
common consent, by ethical principles" is to be
realized before the slow processes of changing the
constitution to do it bylaw are completed.
Yet it is hardly to be doubted that acceptance
of the minimum age limit in the cotton textile
code will of itself spur affirmative action in many
a state on ratification of the pending child labor
coilstitutional amendment.
When the cotton mill operators suggested that
plan they were, whether they knew it or not,
very probably providing a stimulus well calculated
to complete ratification of the child labor amend-
ment at an early date.
Ambitions Realized
That must have been a happy moment to Miss
Perkins, sitting in on the cotton mill code hearing
as the government's chief spokesman on labor as-
pects. If ever a woman has seen not only her per-
sonal ambitions, but her desire to symbolize the
political awakening of her sex abundantly and
quickly realized, she is Madam Secretary Per-
kins.
Editorial Comment

SCIENCE DOESN'T STOP
Revelations of the astounding, progress that has
been achieved in the field of science during these
dark days of depression are heartening to those
who thought that a plug in the stock market was
the stand-still sign for advance of every kind.
Probably the most revolutionary of all the new
inventions reported at the recent meeting of the
American Association for the Advancement of
Science in Chicago was the iconoscope which, ac-
cording to the inventor, Dr. Vladimir K. Zworykin,
will make obsolete all the complicated contrap-
tions so far devised by experimenters with tele-
vision.
Dr. Zworykin's invention- is essentially an elec-
trical eye. Its chief advantages over other tele-
vision equipment apparently are its freedom from
moving parts, its remarkable adaptability and
portability, and its unusual efficiency. So far ad-
vanced is the invention that he was able to say,
in answer to a question as to when television
would be ready for the home, "It is ready now.
The electrical problems are solved. It now remains
for the financial and merchandising experts to do
their job."
These problems, like similar ones in the early
days of the radio, are not simple. Television will
operate independently of radio, according to Dr.
Zworykin, and will be broadcast on a wave about
six meters long.
This will require the installation of innumerable
transmitter stations to carry television broadcasts
from one part of the country to another because
the scientist explains, no satisfactory method has
been found to link television stations by wire and
the broadcasts on such short waves cannot be
transmitted beyond the horizon.
Various proposals already have been made for
