of the Summer Session



A ,

The Theatre{
THE PLAYERS' next production, "Wedding
Bells," a drama by Salisbury Field, directed by
Valentine B. Windt, requires the smallest cast
of any production so far this season. Along with
this the entire action takes place in the drawing-
room of Reginald Carter's bachelor apartment in
New York. So you see it facilitates matters for
everybody, including the director, the players, and
the technicians.

ners have an opportunity to introduce themselves
and we are all familiar with the other advantages
of this type of dance for a mixer.
I should like to recommend it as an experiment
to the Summer Social Director as the attendance
at the remainder of the summer parties will prob-
ably be reduced so that the handling of such a
dance would not be too difficult and unwieldy. The
hosts and hostesses could be of real assistance by
accompanying retiring individuals into the ball-
room and if the size of the crowd would permit,
everyone could be allowed to enter the ballroom.
A slightly older group of hosts and hostesses
would undoubtedly be more conscientious in the
performance of their duties and would be of more
assistance to the more hesitant members of the
group. In the short summer session there is scarce-
ly the need of maintaining the air of sophistication
which prevails during the regular term. These
gatherings should be informal in nature ipasmuch
as they are promoted for the express purpose of
enabling summer school students to become
acquainted with one another. Let's give it a trial !

One thing with which journalism can definitely
be charged is its interference with the "arm of the
law." Publicity can help many movements, but it
seems to be definitely a disadyantage to the pursuit
and capture of a criminal. It tells, not what the
criminal is about to do, but what h has just
done, It tells not only what the authorities have
done, but what they are going to do. Who seems.
t have the draw, the authorities or the criminal?
Nowhere was the adverse publicity of newspapers
more in evidence than in the Lindbergh kidnapping
case several years ago. And it became appar-
ent again with Dillinger - apparent until the Fed-
eral authorities got sick of it.
Now that the. case is rather finally settled, it
becomes evident that U. S. agents were continually,
following up clues leading to Dillinger. He had
several narrow escapes after his "shooting" in St.
Paul, but none of them seem to have reached the
newspapers. As long as they kept an eye on him,
the agents were willing to let him escape the public.
The scheme worked, as the ending has proven.
When the hue and cry had died down, Dillinger
conasidered himself safe. Going to movies is not a
method *of hiding out. The "Dillinger Detail" of
the Chicago police were taking Sundays off. Every-
one seemed to have decided that Dillinger was
dead or on his way to Europe - everyone but the
Federal agents.
They may even have engineered the "fatal
wounding." That would be as good a way as any to
take a man off the front page. Final scores say
that he had a recently healed bullet wound in his
chest. Since no one but the agents have seen him,
it may be that the government, having gained its,
end, doesn't want to embarrass the gentlemen of
the press. That's very nice of them, and it is ap-
But it seems to be quite a reflection on jour-
nalism that the press must be muzzled before the
nation's number one desperado can be caught. It is'
to be hoped that the newspapers have learned a

Louis Bromfield wrote a widely acclaimed story
-the saga of a small town romance complicated
by a triangle unique in American fiction. And
Hollywood helped to immortalize it with a pro-
duction which told the story without losing any
of the original meaning. "The Life of Vergie Win-
ters" is just as good on the screen as it was in its
original form.
Three separate romances are traced through
tumultous courses in this picture in which Ann
Harding achieves one of the greatest characteri-
zationsin her distinguished career.
Foremost is the love of Miss Harding and John
Boles revealed as it endures and grows through
twenty-two years of ecstacy, pain and persecution.
Secondary romances are those of Betty Furness
and Frank Albertson, and of a triangle composed
of Molly O'Day, Wesley Barry, and Ben Alexander.
Miss Furness plays Miss Harding's daughter ef-
fectively in the later sequences of the picture, a role
which is carried in the early scenes by the noted
child actress, Bonita Granville.
"The Life of Vergie Winters" is played against
the colorful background of an American small
town, from late 1910 to late 1932, offering a parade
of fashions and changing customs. The only thing
which does not change is the great love of the
two central characters, and it is about this endur-
ing passion that the powerful drama revolves.
Miss Harding and John Boles reach new heights
in their portrayal of the two major characters. One
is almost convicted that Louis Bromfield had them
personally in mind when he wrote his great novel
It is the type of role that -Miss Harding is especially
fitted for, and Boles does his particularly difficult
role in a convincing manner.
It's an interesting story which loses none of its
effectiveness on the screen. We recommend it tc
you wholeheartedly. -C.A.B.
A feeling of uncertainty pervades Hollywood.
On every side one hears questions concerning
the present and future of the great motion picture
Where is this campaign for purifying pictures
hourly gaining in supporters and demands, lead-
ing? Will sexless films be the result? And if so
what will happen to certain stars whose entire
reputations have been built on sexy picture plays
The average scenarist and director seems to be
completely befuddled. Although the agitation fo
cleaning up pictures began a year ago, many in
Hollywood appear to have been taken completely
by surprise. Actually, however, they believed the
drive would never attain such alarming propor
Here is the paint of one director:
"What are we going to do? Make all picture
for adolescent audiences? Then we can't represen
life truly. Why have we permitted off-color matte
in pictures? That seems to be what the publi
wanted. Mae West's two films, setting some nev
kind of record in this direction, also set new finan-
cial records.
A writer counters:
"It's easy to be dirty, but hard to be clean. We'v
been taking the easiest way. Getting filth in pic
tures is like taking dope; you've got to increas
the doses." -H.K.

Niagara Falls Excursion: The reg-
ular excursion of the Summer Ses- 1
sion to Niagara Falls will take place
this week-end and will be conductedl
by Professor William H. Hobbs. Round
trip rates, Ann Arbor to Niagara Falls
on party ticket will be $7. The party
will leave Michigan Central Depot at
3:30 p.m. Friday, July 27, arriving at
Niagara Falls at 9:30 the same eve-
ning. Returning, leave Niagara Falls
at 1:30 p.m. E.S.T. Sunday and ar-
rive at Ann Arbor at 11:29 p.m. the
same night. All necessary expenses
under $15. Full information ob-
tainable in the Office of the Summer
Session, second floor, Angell Hall.
Registration should be made early
and a receipt for ticket will serve
throughout on train and for identifi-
cation at Niagara Falls. Reservations
should be made as early as possible
for rooms at the Temperance House
where the party will stay at Niagara
Falls. Single rooms $1.50 and lower
rates for two or more in a room. In
case as many as 14 register for it, a
flight over the falls and gorge of Nia-
gara will be taken in a regular plane
of the Canadian Airways Company
with one of their regular pilots. Price
per person $2. Professor Hobbs will
fly with each party of eight or more.
If weather is unfavorable, it will not
be included. The excursion itself
is largely independent of weather
since protection against rain will be
available almost throughout the ex-
cursion. Unless registration for ho-
tel is made early, it may be impos-
sible to provide since this is the
crowded season at Niagara Falls. This
excursion is open to citizens of Ann
Arbor and Ypsilanti whether mem-
bers of the Summer Session or not.

Cause Of Death Unknown;

his customary strolls from the Lodge
into the mountains.'
The body was found by Ranger
Clyde Fauley, wedged between two
boulders on the shore of the stream.
The Bishop's head and shoulders were
out of water, and only the lower part
of the body was submerged.
Whether he died from drowning
or from injury and exposure was not
immediately determined.
From the distance he had traveled,
Rangers believed that Bishop Faber
had been gone from the Chalets pos-
sibly three hours when he stumbled,
confused, into the stream. He had
left the trail nearly a mile behind
and apparently had wandered through
the forests.
Bishop Coadjutor H. H. H. Fox, of
Billings, announced that immediately
after the inquest he would start for
Helena with the body, arriving there
The dead Bishop, a native of Buf-
falo, N. Y,. succeeded the missionary
Bishop, Leigh Brewer, in Montana. In
observance of his 24th year here, a
celebration had been planned this fall
by the diocese. Before coming to Mon-
tana, Bishop Faber served parishes
in Geneva, N. Y., Lochport, N. Y., and
in Detroit, where he served for nine

To the Editor:
At three o'clock Monday morning I woke from a
sound sleep with memories of an editorial I had
read some time ago in the Ann Arbor Daily News.
It ran in the Spring of 1933, just after The Daily
had published an extra on the California earth-
quake. The date, to be exact, was March 13, 1933,
and it was entitled: "'Extra' Editions in Early
Morning Hours." Today I looked it up in the
files of the General Library. I thought you might;
be interested in the following article:
"Complaints have come into the Daily News
office regarding the peddling of 'extra' editions
through the residential districts of the city during
the night and early morning hours. Most of the
complaints are registered in polite phraseology, but
indignation over the disturbance, or "nuisance" as
some describe it, is perfectly obvious. Daily News
'extras' they feel, should not be issued or distrib-
uted at 'unearthly hours.' Sleeping citizens could
afford to wait at least until daylight to be informed
regarding the California earthquake, for instance.
"The Daily News agrees with those sentiments.
But it pleads 'not guilty' to the charge. The wheels
of the presses printing the earthquake editions did
not begin to turn until 6 a.m. This newspaper does
not issue special editions during the night. Some
time there might be a reason sufficient to deviate
from this rule, but there has been no deviation for
a number of years.
"The 'extras' against which the complaints were
registered were not published by the Daily News. It
is a situation over which we have no control,
although we agree with the sentiments expressed in
the protesting letters."
I may be no judge of news value, but this seems
to me to be the case: While Dillinger alive may
worry a lot of people, his death should certainly
be of no more interest than the California earth-
quake to either a professional journalist or a
"sleeping citizen." Yours for placid nights,

the half-way mark. To many this
comes as a shock, for they probably feel it has no
more than gotten well underway. But this shock
may bring an awakening - a realization of oppor-
tunities at hand for education and cultural im-
provement which have not as yet been made use
of. Four more weeks remain in which to make up
for lost time.
League dances, band and faculty' concerts, lec-
tures, excursions, special social and religious pro-
grams sponsored by churches - these and many*
other attractions are offered to Summer Session
students. The method for expression of apprecia-
tion for them is to attend the various programs
offered to the public.
Admittedly general campus activities are at a
lower ebb in the summer than during the regular
academic year -due to the absence of football
games, proms, and the surrounding color - but a
distinct effort to fill up these gaps has been made
by community leaders.
Individual students should make the most of
these opportunities in the remaining weeks of the
session -if they would get the most from their


As Others See It
Former Governor Alex J. Groesbeck finally has
announced his candidacy for the gubernatorial of-
fice in the fall Republican primary, and he enters
the race with strong support. John S. Haggerty
is a political power in the state, and the Haggerty-
Groesbeck "feud" has ended. The attitude of the
Fred W. Green faction is something to think about,
and likewise Frank D. Fitzgerald, now secretary of
state and a candidate for the governorship, is
popular with the people, as is evidenced by the
fact that though a Republican, he was elected
to his present office in spite of a Democratic land-
slide. Representative Clarence J. McLeod also has
announced his candidacy, and though he is some-
what of a darkhorse he is bound to be a factor.
But Groesbeck has plenty of experience, and he
has a powerful personality, and he issued an im-
pressive statement when he made his announce-
ment late Saturday. This statement showed an in-
telligent grasp of present problems facing both the

thousand needs, and of
opportunities forhome
and business...

To The Editor:
The several expressions of opinion which have
appeared in your 'Campus Opinion' column in
connection with League 'mixers' have led me to
offer a few suggestions which, I believe, may be
helpful to those who are responsible for these social
gatherings. I am very much in sympathy with the
viewpoint of the writer of Friday morning's article
and I know that many of 'the summer school stu-
dents feel that the present arrangement should be
