THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Official Publication of the Summer Session
IN WEATHER like this we're most pleased to
learn that the fifth presentation of the Michigan
Repertory Players, "Wedding Bells," is a play that
exists merely for its enjoyment, there being no les-
sons to be taught or problems to be solved. It's "a
comedy with an interesting plot" we are told. Let's
hope it is, and let's hope that the Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theatre is COOL.

AND NOW that we think of it, we're not terribly
disappointed that a change of plays was found
necessary. "The Field God" might have been a
bit 'heavy' and that would have been too bad.
Then, we understand that it's a story of southern
American life - and southern America is one place

prefer Alaska-or perhaps Little America.

In reading Campus Opinion this morning I saw a
letter concerning the League Dances and would like
to offer a suggestion: why not ask members of the
Michigan Dames to act as hostesses? These girls
are old enough to be interested in seeing that
everyone has a good time, yet young enough to
understand the attitudes and feelings of the college
student. This would give those girls who know the
boys an opportunity to enjoy the dance free from
responsibility, and those not so fortunate would
feel no hesitancy in admitting it to a "staid old
While no Michigan Dame has been approached
on the subject, I have a feeling that they would be
delighted to help, particular since the maie half of
the family is forced to study every night and even
a Michigan Dame gets lonely at times.

EDITOR'S NOTE: A remedy to the situation out-
linldihere will be proposed' in tomorow's editorial,
"The New Way Of Living.
NLY A SHORT TIME AGO it was
2 "the thing" to be cynical. Cynicism
had become the salve that covered society's wounds.
All of life had been condensed into one single
aim: Making money. Cynicism had become the
order of everyone's day.
And why not? What end was there in view for
anyone otherthan that of learning how to pile up
wealth for himself? No one can live for riches alone
and not become cynical.
What philosophy, other than that of the cynic,
could the college student, for example, have de-
veloped when he found all of education interpreted
in terms of money, its value lying in its power to
give wages greater than those received by the un-
There are still innumerable cynics. They are th
persons who are led to believe that the way of
democracy is the way of the past. The only way
that their cynicism can be taken away is by enlist-
ing each person among those who wish definite
reform that they may thereby obtain a definite
envisioned objective for which to labor.
Within a very few years there surely is going to
come into being a new way of life; it will be that
of living for a democracy, rather than of living
for one's self. The new way of life will allow peopl
to understand such words as those of Upton Sin-
clair at the time they are written and declare them
no mere rhetorical statement:

says that there were then 19 million people on the

It is impossible to look at an official report for
the year 1929, the Olympus of our prosperity, and
find any way of adjusting ourselves to the fact that
in that year the farmers of the nation, numbering
25 per cent of the population, made $545 apiece
for the year's labor - while more than 500 persons
made for themselves more than a million dollars
apiece through finance and intrigue.

people have many bathtubs in their homes --and

THE STORY of "Wedding Bells" has to do with
the efforts of a little divorcee (Mary Pray), who,
still loving her former husband (Goddard Light),
seeks to break up the marriage plans that would
put him out of her reach. It appears that a com-
bination of temper and measles had caused their
separation and there are more forces than these
that stand in the way of their ever being united
* * * *
VIRGINIA FRINK, cast as Marcia Hunter, the
sweet young thing who is to be the second wife, and
Hattie Bell Ross, her mother, who does not always
have the facility of saying the right thing at the
right time, adequately take the place of the measles
and the temper.
THE COMPLICATEI4 situations that follow
'promise an evening of interesting theatre. Mary
Pray comes on the scene looking for her dog but
stays to create a great deal of confusion until
the final curtain is rung down.
* * * *
L. WAYNE SMITH plays the part of the much-
married valet, and Claribel Baird is Hooper, the
maid. Of great importance to the progress of the
plot are Spencer Wells, played by Frank Funk, and
Douglas Ordway, played by John Lee Doll.
* * * *
THIS IS the second production in which Mary
Pray and Goddard Light have appeared opposite
each other. In "Both Your Houses" they ran into
all sorts of complications but everything, of course,
came out all right in the end. If you remember,
they left the stage, and you were supposed to
imagine the 'fade-out' scene. Back stage, at this
point, they did just what you expected them to.

A HOSTESS REPLIES
Dear Mr. Editor:
I have read all the casual essays and editorials
"panning" the League "Mixers," (for We do like
to consider them in that light, contrary to the
general campus opinion), and with your permis-
sion I would like to cite just a few emotional reac-
tions as experienced by the hostesses.
First, I would like to say that these dances are
sponsored with the primary objective of providing
the students with as pleasant and sociable an
evening as possible.
We realize that making acquaintances in un-
familiar surroundings is not a simple matter.
Hence -- the present system of hostesses and hosts.
The students who act in this capacity are living in
the hope of contacting individuals who are new
to this school who have not as yet been able to
penetrate the veneer of convention to the extent
of accumulating a group of acquaintances large
>nough to satiate their quite natural social needs.
Miss McCormick, social director of the League's
activities, is interested in only one thing as far as
these dances are concerned, and that is giving the
tudents just what they want in the line of enter-
tainment. She has been with the University for a
number of years now, and we feel that she cer-
tainly knows how to fill her position. Any sug-
lestions you might wish to offer would be grate-
fully appreciated by her, and would most certainly
be given careful consideration.
The hostesses feel both flattered and depressed
by your opinion of them as expressed in last week's
Daily. It is pleasant to be considered youthful;
yet disturbing to be considered inefficient. If only
aach and every one of you but knew just how
discouraged a hostess feels when dismissed by a
gentle shrug of the shoulder and upward tilt of the
lose ! But, are we squelched by these outward symp-
loms of dismissal? Hardly ! Sooner or later you may
bump into someone who has a keen appreciation of
the situation and MAY consent to letting you help
him enjoy himself.
Of course, there will always be those individuals
who will put you in (or out) of your place by calmly
informing you that: "I prefer to make my own se-
lections, thank you," (really, we are very grateful
for the "thank you,") or "I haven't seen anyone
who interests me as yet."
Oh why can't these fussy males enter into the
spirit of the thing? Come on boys, give the girls
a break. Are you snooty or just plain shy?
The biggest thrill I have ever realized was the
ethereal joy of hearing a pleasant male voice say:
"Would you please introduce me to the little girl in
pink over there?" You catch your breath and stag-
ger forward, amazed at your good fortune. Heavens
to Betsey, what a sensation when you see him
gently but firmly draw her arm through his and
sociably lead her down the corridor to the ball-
room. You stand behind watching until they dis-I

"MURDER IN TRINIDAD"
Bertram Lynch ............. Nigel Bruce
Joan Cassell ............. Heather Angel
Howard Sutter .............Victor Jory
One of the best mystery thrillers we've seen in a
long time. How the Majestic happened to get it
we don't know. It must have been a booking error.
Here are just a few reasons why it's better than
the ordinary run of mystery and Majestic shows:
(1.) The setting is perfect. Trinidad, a beautiful
island off the coast of South America, is the back-
ground for all the action. The picture opens with
some very effective random shots of the island -
and others are interspersed as the plot slowly winds
(2.) Nigel Bruce as the eccentric but pleasant de-
tective from Scotland Yard plays his part excel-
lently. He has a monkey, eats peanuts, and looks
half asleep most of the time - but like all gentle-
men from the Yard, he gets his man.
(3.) Heather Angel and Victor Jory are ideally
cast in romantic roles. She is the daughter of an
innocent but suspected officer, and he is a young
ambassador. Their affair, of course, is complicated
- but the ending, as usual, is happy.
The plot has to do with the operations of dia-
mond smugglers on the island, and the govern-
ment's attempt to put a stop to them. Nigel Bruc
is called from Scotland Yard to clear things up.
He no sooner gets there than his assistant, who
knows too much, is killed, and an attempt on
his own life is made. Later the Governor is mur-
dered and Heather Angel and her father, who is
suspected of the murder, disappear.
Mr. Bruce and Victor Jory, in love with the girl,
disguise themselves as criminals and gain access
to the hitle-out of the smugglers in a supposedly
uninhabited swamp. They find Miss Angel and
her father there - and learn all about the strange
activities of the smugglers. The discovery of their
identity by the leader of the gang complicates
matters considerably - for Messrs. Bruce and
Jory - but after their escape matters are ever
more complicated for the gang leader and his
The picture itself is worth three stars, but th
short subjects, as usual, are an affront to movie-
goers. As long as the Majestic continues to pass
off such inferior fare on its public, this columr
will let ITS public know about it. To put it tritely,
there ought to be a law against it. -C.A.B.

As Others See It
Why print 5,600,000 ballots for two elections in
which 2,663,000 votes were cast? Why, in certain
Michigan counties, should the cost's of about the
same number of ballots vary up to more than 100
per cent? In one sparsely populated township, why
pay six election officers $3 a day each to sit and
receive the votes (if cast) of 11 registered voters?.
In general, are Michigan's election payrolls padded
with political appointees paid at rates far above
anything to be found in comparable employ-
These questions - from a list raised in a study,
"Election Administration in Michigan," by Prof.
James K. Pollock, University of Michigan political
scientist - effectively bring up election matters
again. The Pollock survey is a sequel to. the work
of two election commissioners under Govs. Green
and Brucker. A summary of the new findings ap-
peared in our news columns Sunday. No doubt is
left, we think, that the conduct of elections is
saturated with politics to an extent that explains
an increase of the statewide election costs up to
nearly half a dollar per vote cast.
Election administration largely falls under 83
county clerks, each acting separately. Though sec-
ondary, the varying costs of ballots are illustra-
tive. Needs of printers for business as well as
needs of voters for voting are remembered. The
remaining election abuses form another case which
shows what happens in the absense of central di-
rection and a uniform system.
