0 PINIONATED articles on Ann Ar-
bor's police department have ap-
peared recently in a column on this page devoted
to an expression of individual thought and out-
lok Items which appear in that column reflect
only the opinion of the writer and do not con-
cerh the editorial attitude of The Daily. For this
reason it is only fair to state that much of the
criticism which finds its way into a column of
that nature .is often the result of a biased out-
look which has developed from one-sided experi-
ences rather thian intelligent investigation.
In the instance of the criticisms directed to-
wards the efficiency of Ann Arbor's police depart-
ment, something should be added to that which
has already been ,stated.
There can be no question in the mind of any
rational individual regarding the part played by
the police in attempts to cope with the cycle of
fraternity robberies. Naturally the police do all in
their power to prevent such criminal outburste
i4 to apprehend those responsible for the out-
rages. And, considering the fact that those living
in fraternities have had ample time in which to
earn a lesson from the robberies of the past, the
police do more to prevent such action than do
the fraternities themselves.
.Logically, all that the members of the police
'force can do to prevent local robberies is to main-
tain as strict a watch as possible throughout the
aty. They do this in as efficient a manner as
possible with a limited number of men. But the
fraternities have even a better opportunity to
prevent robbery. The police car, when malting its
rounds at night, is hampered to a great ex-
tent when it comes to keeping guard over fra-
ternities. It is impossible to personally guard each
house all the time. And even if that were pos-
sible the police are in no position to know who
belongs in a house where people are coming and
going at all odd hours of the day and night.
We don't necessarily recommend a personal
latch-key for each fraternity man, and yet that
might be one step toward a solution of the prob-
lemn. As it is now most houses are open all
the time and, as has been demonstrated, outsiders
can get in and wander about a house at will un-
less noticed by someone belonging in the house.
Consequently, a criticism of the abilities of the
policemen on the grounds that they cannot pre-
vent fraternity robberies is, on the face, rather
ty KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON-The summer parade of the
great figures of American private banking across
the witness stand of a Senate committee, what-
ever its legislative product may be next winter,
served to paint two of the main characters in
wholly new colors to the press and news-reading
Thus it was found that J. P. Morgan, the sec-
ond, instead of the cold, aloof, inscrutable money
baron of popular fancy was a pleasantly genial
fellow, of quick conversational wit, enjoying a
joke, even on himself.
And in Ott Kahn, master of the firm of
Kahn, Loeb and company, there was revealed nc
reactionary, die-hard defender of past or exist-
ing economic social systems. Instead he stood as a
champion of change and of progressive govern-
mental experimenting, realizing that many exist-
ing conditions are "overripe" for change.
It is Mr. Kahn's observation that every 30 years
or so the restless spirit of America, spurred per-
iaps by recurrent depression cycles, moves to alter
end modernize the national "economic pattern."
He had no quarrel with that nor with the con-
llusion that such a movement now has definitely
et in and is exemplified in "the new deal."
Coming from such a high, ultra-capitalistic
:ource, all that is very interesting. Yet the thing
Mr. Kahn had to say that is most apt to be re-
)eated when Congress reassembles next winter to
)atch or rebuild the permanent government struc-
.ure was what concerned income taxes.
The drive for abandonment of the capital gains
nd losses provisions of existing tax laws un-
doubtedly was speeded by the banker's feeling that
Jncle Sam ought not to "gamble with prosperity"
or invite tax dodging.
Many Tax Cases
Which lends point to figures the Bystander
aas collected throwing light from a wholly dif-
ferent angle on this matter of tax dodging.
.Conning over the just upward of 200 cases al-
ready on file for attention of the Supreme Court
aext term, it develops that better than one out
f every three is a tax case.
Actual count shows the commissioner of in-
ternal revenue, the national tax collector, is named
as a party in some 75 of those 200 cases. He is
either appealing for the government the decision
A a lower court or fighting an appeal. And there
are many other tax cases to which the commis-_
sioner is not a direct party.
Looking For Loopholes
Virtually every case involves attempts to get out
of paying taxes-to find legal loopholes. Govern-
nent briefs, to the outraged clamor of council
for taxpayers, insistently press upon the court
expedient consideration of the total loss of rev-
anue, in millions or tens of millions, the govern-
ment might face in this, that or the other case.
Every technicality of corporate or individual in-
come tax laws and regulations, from the capital
:amins and losses to the consolidated corporate re-
turns, is under fire. And the mass of these pending
tax litigations does not get much closer to present
day returns than 1922 or 1923, more than a decade

voyance, spiritualism, mediumistic revelations and
other mercentry exploitations of the supernatural.
On more than one occasion the two men would

So, because it has a definite natural back-
ground, the story of "The Mind Reader" is aI
good one. Warren William is starred and Con-
stance Cumming is the leading woman. Miss Cum-
ming's work in this particular instance is marked
with a very fine restraint which makes her ideal
for the part of the "sweet young thing" who falls
in love with the -fakir, believing him to be sincere
and honest. Allen Jenkins also has a good part, as
a friend and assistant of the fortune teller, and
he handles it quite nicely. Clarence Muse, Donald
Dillaway, Natilie Moorhead, Clara Blandick and
Robert Greig are also in the cast.
AT THE WHITNEY
"MY WIFE'S FAMILY"
(Showing Sunday through Tuesday)
Gene Gerrard, celebrated musical comedy star,
who recently completed a co-starring tour with,
Gertrude Lawrence, heads the roster of players
in "My Wife's Family" which opens today at the
Whitney theatre. It is said to be an uproariously
funny farce comedy with clever situations and
wise-cracking dialogue. Tyrannized- young hus-
bands whose mothers-in-law are too prone to use
their imaginary authority over an entire house-
hold, should be especially entertained by "My
Wife's Family," if what we've heard about it is
On the same program will be a repeat show-
ing of Barbara Stanwyck in "Forbidden," with
Adolphe Menjou. "Forbidden" is one of the best
pictures ever made by Miss Stanwyck and of
course Menjou's acting in "The Front Page" will
never be forgotten by theatre-goers. One of the
new melody master series with Jesse Crawford at
the organ and Graham McNamee talking Univer-
sal News will complete the current program.
Within the next few weeks, we understand,
the programs at the Whitney will change bi-week-
ly instead of every two or three days. This will
give a longer booking to the first run pictures of
prominence. Among the future attractions listed
for the Whitney are many of interest; We are par-
ticularly awaiting the Skeets Gallagher-Bert

from Dr. Jacob Wachsman, Brook-
