It is up to the public to decide from available
information just how serious the situation actually
is. And we are inclined to side with Mr. Voelker in
his decision that something must be done if the
public schools of Michigan are to maintain a rea-
sonably high standard. As stated in his address,
approximately 10 per cent of the schools will be
able to remain open for the full term during the
coming academic year and about one-fourth of
them will be able to operate for only a period
of three months.
The situation could hardly present any greater
difficulties. It requires many years to build up a
satisfactory standard for educational institutions
and this standard can be lowered over-night. The
practice of drastically reducing teachers' salaries
as a way out of economic difficulties has been
commonly adopted and few things could be as
harmful to the entire system. The situation is in-
deed alarming. Unless something is done to stop
the present inroad upon education, many years
will be required to bring the public schools of the
state up to the former high level. Perhaps the
Legislators didn't do "so badly" at ,the last ses-
sion; perhaps matters could be worse; but the
problem to be faced at present is "What can we
do to better the situation?"

The girls' school in Boston which she attended

heap of fun when she was a kid . . .

to skip school to see-Eddie Polo in "Liberty" and
Helen Holmes in "Robbing the Limited" and other
such hokus-pokus that thrilled us for a week.

iiua's Credit
s Good...
A MONG the interesting statements
made by Professor George Grafton
Wilson, who delivered the first public address
of the series sponsored by the Summer Session
Qn Teaching International Law, was one which
described the economic status of a .nation in the
far East. And from that statement can be de-
rived much "food for thought."
Professor Wilson elaborately described the re-
lationship of the United States to Eastern coun-
tries, referring in some instances to historical
documents of prominence. He next discussed the
many-sided problems of the great nations of the
Orient, quoting statistics to demonstrate the lack
of certain facilities which are to be found in
America. He mentioned the inferiority of rail-
road, telegraph, telephone, and highway systems
in China.
He followed this general discussion with a brief
survey of productive methods in the Far East.
Then . he tackled the problem of government,
comparing that found in China and Japan with
our own. He explained that China's government
was a model one "on paper," though highly in-
".A-nd then, finally (and here is the statement
which warrants attention) he declared that the
credit of China is very good-that last year its
budget was perfectly balanced. He further stated
that leading statesmen of the nation claim that
the budget will also be balanced this year.
So, despite economic conditions which exist in
the Far East, despite the lower general standard
of iving, regardless of the lack of conveniences
-nlevertheless China balances its budget. There
should be some sort of a lesson or moral con-
tained in those facts which might be of interest
14 those nations of the world who pride themselves
upon advancement and efficiency.

On1 Education. ..
lic instruction Paul F. Voelker,
peaking Wednesday before members of the Ann
Arbor Rotary club, described the education situa-.
tion in the state as "alarming." He explained that
the proceeds from the recently enacted sales tax
will be utilized by the state and welfare admin-
iatration and that practically nothing will be left
for the public schools of the state.
'-He even went further and denounced manufac-
turers who, he claimed, influenced the legisla-
ture in order that they might evade the sales
iThen, to climax his address, he pointed out
that the governor's promise to call a special ses-
sion -of the legislature for the purpose of consid-
ering new methodsof raising revenue would come
too late to be of any aid to the schools in their
present alarming situation.
Mr. Voelker's remarks are most interesting at
this time, following the astounding statements
recently made by Professor Moehlman, who
raised the legislators for the constructive meas-
ures which they had passed in an attempt to
alleviate the seriousness of the current educa-
tional muddle.
According to the one, the schools are not in as
bad a condition as we had formerly believed.
Though more might have been done to aid them

at this time, Professor Moehlman insisted that,
on the whole, we have reason to feel grateful
that the Legislature accomplished what they did
and that they kept out certain destructive meas-
According to Mr. Voelker however, the crisis;
is now at hand for the public schools of the
state. He maintains that any attempts to aid the

Pert Kelton's story differs from most knock-
ing-at-the-gate Hollywood stories. She tried hard
to get a film job, after several years as a child
dancer in vaudeville, but without much success.
Then she managed to get the role of Constance
Bennett's pal in "Bed of. Roses"-and, say the
preview lookers, just about stole the picture..- -
A contract and bids from all studios resulted..--
But, as I say, her story is different . . . Pert

Laurel and Hardy, as Stanlio and Olivero, two
vagabonding bandits, reach the height of their
comedy career in "The Devil's Brother." In a play
based on the celebrated Auber comic opera they
are given ample opportunity to use the many
tricks for which they are famous.
Dennis King, star of "Rose Marie" and "The
Vagabond King," is another reason why "The
Devil's Brother" is a good movie. Supported by
Thelma Todd, King supplies the musical side of
this comedy.
In the course of their adventures, the two come-
dians encounter the usual difficulties which go
to make up the strange situations which, in
turn, make for a successful comedy. They meet
up with the famous bandit chief, Divalo, and are
forced to accompany him on his thieving mis-

The second feature at the Majestic is "Men
cf America," starring Bill Boyd. It is a story of
western gunmen and racketeers, and perhaps it is
because of this combination that we don't espe-
cially care for the picture.
It coicerns the ictivities of city gangste s who
meet their doom when they come up against the
hard-boiled, two-fisted, six-shooting wiesterner.
Furthermore it attempts to include the element
f of patriotism along with the picturization of
ranch-life and gangdom, which is too much for

Jean Harlow and Clark Gable are teamed again
in "Hold Your Man," which opens today at the
Michigan theatre. The picture follows their re-
cent "Red Dust."
The story, an original by Anita Loos, concerns
a rowdy love affair that begins as a sketchy in-
terlude and ends up inr the typical film romance.
As the cheap little drifter who goes to prison
for the man she loves, Miss Harlow is given an
opportunity in this picture to display acting abil-
ity. The show also provides the first serious role
for Stuart Erwin. Dorothy Burgess, Muriel Kirk-
land, Garry Owen, Barbara Barondess, Paul
Hurst, Elizabeth Patterson and George Reed also
have parts in "Hold Your Man." A song hit by
Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed is also in-,

Walter Huston holds the spotlight in the lead-
ing feature film which opens today at the Whit-
ney theatre. Supported by Pat O'Brien, Constance
Cummings and Kay Johnson, he plays one of
his typical parts in a story of modern people in
a modernistic setting.
Sharing the screen with Huston's picture will
be "Flame of Love," which stars Anna Mae Wong.
Jhe film, as one might suppose (though not from
the title) is a mystery which includes the tale of
a weak man who holds a high political position,
the fascination of suspense, and the other fac-
tors one usually considers for Anna Mae Wong
witness "Shankhai Express").
The new policy of the Whitney theatre will go
into effect this week with only two changes of

"War Correspondent" and "The- Menace." The
