is required to correct errors. As Mr. Cummings
stated, "Regulation follows regulation with be-
wildering multiplicity, until there is created a
morass of laws in which the whole profession is
mired."
The clever criminal lawyer finds in this "morass
of laws" the technical loopholes which all too
often frustrate the best efforts of the prosecution.
Since under the proposed system the rules are
changed by those who work with them, it is prob-
able that there would be fewer decisions based on:
technicalities.
This policy is a tried one, having been in force
in England since 1873. In that country rules of
practice and procedure are prescribed by a Rules
Committee of eight judges and four lawyers. In our
own country the United States Supreme Court
can regulate practice and procedure in equity
cases.
The problem of the unscrupulous criminal law-
year who bridges the gap between respectibility
and crime is a major barrier to effective law en-
forcement. Unfortunately many of the State and
Federal laws under which this type of lawyer
could be persecuted have fallen into decay.
Some offences may be met by fines or contempt
of court. The most effective method is censure, sus-
pension, or disbarment. The Attorney General is
seeking the wider use of these weapons to prevent
the crooked lawyer from practicing.
The present system plays into the hands of the
racketeer at every turn. Our antiquated legal ma-
chinery makes convictions difficult to obtain, even
where the guilt is clear.
The evils which Mr. Cummings seeks to reform
are not new, but the present concerted effort of
the Department of Justice in co-operation with
local enforcement agencies dramatically demon-
strates the impossibility of longer delaying reform.
The Brain-Trust .
T HE DEROGATORY MANNER in
which the opponents of the New
Deal speak of the President's advisors is an indica-
tion of the number of people in the United States
who still retain the essentially rural outlook on
government.
To a person of intelligence it is a distinct shock
to find that a large proportion of the American
people look upon intelligence as an attribute to dis-
trust, and it is obvious that the word "brain-
truster" is used to deride the introduction of intel-
ligence and training into government.
Distrust of experts in government has always
been characteristic of the rural mind in this and
other countries. The first indication of the urbani-
zation of the American people, with regard to gov-
ernment, was the success of the city-manager plan
of .government.
Since the manager-plan made such a conspicu-
ous success in municipal government a strong ef-
fort has been made to secure the adoption of
manager-plan for county government, but les
than ten counties in the United States have adopt-
ed the system.
It is time that the newly urbanized United State:
came to a proper realization of the value of in
telligence in government. "Brain-truster" shoulc
be a name of honor.

you remember correctly, Greta Garbo's Queen
Christiana was given but three stars likewise.)
(5.) The appropriation of a small sum on some-
body's part that the General Library may acquire
at least one copy in translation of Aristotle's
work on Logic.
(6.) A little less bombast as an inherent char-
acteristic on the part of all actors in this season's
play production. A splendid lesson for all would
be an interpretation of John Millington Synge's
Riders to the Sea.
And in addition, though quite out of key with
the foregoing:
(7.) A far stronger tone of criticism in regard
to all manner of campus activities and customs.
There seems to be little excuse for soft-pedaling the
manifold of failures in the performances at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre (well-filled seats and
complimentary news-notices should not be wel-
comed too readily as signs of success), in the con-
certs at Hill Auditorium, and in the University Lec-
tures in the Natural Science Auditorium. Unless
someone sets up an ideal, these offerings will soon
degenerate into mere mockery. There is nothing
more healthy than a stern, though sympathetic
criticism.
The writer need not note such instances as the
inconsistent stage appearance of Professor Hackett
when singing a Schumann program, the total ab-
sence of all reserve in the production of' 'Both
Your Houses," which is perhaps after all the funda-
mental secret of any art, and the moral and aes-
thetic impudence of certain parasticial feminines
who seek in the most unsophisticated ways to put
forward their facial and figural glorifications for
the benefit of the weaker male subscribers who
are marvelously unable to discriminate between
a Titian's Daughter and a Mae West, to demon-
strate the need for a more severe and honest criti-
cism in the University of Michigan.
(8.) A merry-go-round in front of Angell Hall.
Everything else has been proposed and passed, so
why not this?
-Richard Bennett.
THANK YOU
To The Editor:
The editorial in yesterday's paper "Rich Amer-
ica!-"= was a genuine treat. It reads like an excerpt
from H. G. Wells, Dreiser, or perhaps, Hendrich
Van Loon. Let's have more of them!
Only - Upton Sinclair being quoted as an au-
thority in an Associated Press newspaper (ref-
erence: "The Brass Check") is too much to believe!
Can it be that those who threw brickbats at
him not so long ago are now throwing orchids?

The New Way
,Of Living.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Following is a proposed remedy to
the a situ on outined In yesterday's editorial, "Rich
Aarerica&!"
THE NEW WAY of living in America
will be that in which profit plays
little part in the gross economic picture. Production
for consumption, rather than production for profit,
will be the call of the new Democratic day.
That can be the only solution, for, by an anom-
aly, the success of capitalism in making profits
spells its eventual downfall; each dollar of profit
represents buying power taken from the worker,
who is the major consumer of all goods.
The end of capitalism is the piling up of capital
and goods; and the worker, lacking this same cap-
ital because it has not been given to him, is there-
fore unable to purchase these same surplus goods.
Capitalism ties itself up through its lust for profits.
The new way of living will be that of a socialized-
democracy - we may as well call it Socialism.
There is no need of our being afraid of a word.
In the past we 'associated Socialism with bearded
bomb-throwers, and did not know that there could
be an American Socialism, as well as a foreign type.
We did not know that Socialism is merely gov-
ernment working in industry for the benefit of the
many. We were scared of the "ism," rather than of
the root word "social."
*The new way of living will provide that essen-
tial of a democracy that has been overlooked in the
past: namely, the fact that society owes to every-
one the chance to make a living.
More thanthat, it will provide everyone with a
complete education in his youth -an education
that will continue as long as he shows himself an
interested and worthy student.'
Finally, it will give to everyone security in his
old age. No man or woman will have to spend his
life struggling to accumulate a few dollars as pro-
tection against the "rainy days" of disability, lack
of employment, or old age.
Education, employment, and security will come
to be considered as fundamentally democratic as
our present right to representation in government.
The new way of living will make no provision for
war, and any possible war will come only with the
open-minded consent of the governed.
No longer will we pick uip newspapers and read
the obituaries of dead soldier boys, obituaries that
end with an unconsciously pitiful verse:
His not to reason why;
His But to do and die.
There are a million necessary reforms in the
world. And it is 14o disgrace to be a reformer.
We don't care anything about emulating the
type who carries a black umbrella and wears a
stiff hat, that asks one to sign pledges promising
to refrain from the use of the "devil's torch" and
from "dehydrated poisons." We commonly look
upon such persons as being very simple and equally
silly.
Needed reforms are those which touch people in
their lives, not in their habits. We would serve a
worthy cause if we would become crusaders all, in
search of social, rather than romantic Grails.
Not that there is no romance in reform. One
writer has seen it as follows: "The old idea of ro-
mance: The country boy goes to the city, marries
his employer's daughter, enslaves some hundreds
of his fellow humans, gets rich, and leaves a public
library to his home town. The new idea of romance:
To undo some of the mischief caused by the old
idea of romance."

AT THE MICHIGAN

The Theatre
"WEDDING BELLS"
IN REVIEW
By Brackley Shaw
For their sixth play of the season the Summer
Repertory Players have chosen well. The play,
"Wedding Bells" by Salisbury Field, is a farce
in the comedy of manners style - admirable fare
for the hot weather theatre-goer.
The plot is a complicated announcement of mar-
riages and previous marriages and bigamy which
cancels out so that everyone gets the proper mate
at the final curtain. Fast-moving action, backed
up by humorous lines and amusing situations keep
the play interesting throughout.
The cast is very fine on the whole. Mary Pray
and Frank Funk as Rosalie and Spencer Wells are
particularly good. They extracted every possible
shade of emphasis from their lines. L. Wayne
Smith as Jackson, a butler in the Jeeves tradition,
Virginia Frink as Marcia, and Claribel Baird as
Hooper, Rosalie's maid, also did particularly well.
Goddard Light as Reginald Carter, the man in the
middle of complications, looked and acted too
young for the part. The part presupposed a certain
amount of sophistication which Mr. Light isn't
able to convey.
The performance is an excellent example of the
competent direction which audiences have learned
to expect from Mr. Windt. He also directed "One
Sunday Afternoon" and "Both Your Houses" on
this summer's schedule. While the first act did not
have quite the snap of the two following, it was
amply redeemed by faster tempo in the second
act and the excellent ascent to the climax in the
third.
All in all, it is probably fortunate that, during the
hottest summer ever recorded, this entertaining
farce was substituted for "The Field God," which
is described on the program as a realistic play re-
quiring heavy characteristic acting.

"HERE COMES THE GROOM"t
The Michigan, it seems, is going in for comedyt
in a big way. Opening today is Jack Haley's "Here1
Comes the Groom," and next week-end Joe E.
Brown will appear in The Circus Clown."
The plot of "Here Comes The Groom" is built on1
the situation of a bewildered young man in lovea
with one girl who spends a honeymoon with
another.j
Haley, Broadway stage comedy-star, recentlya
featured with Jack Oakie in "Sitting Pretty," has
the leading role, with Mary Boland, Neil Hamilton,
Patricia Ellis, Isabel Jewell, Sidney Toler, and
Larry Gray in featured roles.1
The story begins with an argument betweeni
Jack Haley and Isabel Jewell, his sweetheart. Shet
is leaving him flat because he is such a failure
at his chosen profession - burglary. She cites her
brother and her father who are such successes
that they now repose in the city jail.
Determined to "show" her, Haley sets out tot
hold up a poker game. But some real robbers holdI
up Haley while he's holding up the game and get
away with everything including Haley's pants.
Chased by the cops, Haley takes refuge in a
Pullman compartment of a young bride whose hus-
band has just deserted her because her father
lost his money. Not to be outdone, she forces HaleyI
to accompany her home as the new bridegroom
who is a famous masked radio tenor.
Arriving home, Haley learns that Mary Boland,
the girl's aunt, is a "nut" over radio and especially
over the masked tenor, and, from then on, compli-
cations pile up swiftly.
The screen play was written by Leonard Praskins
and Casey Robinson from the original play by
Richard Flourney. Edward Sedgwick directed.
AT THE MAJESTIC
"THE WITCHING HOUR"
August Thomas' drama, "The Witching Hour,"
successful on the stage, has been adapted on the
screen and will show at the Majestic today and
tomorrow.
In the cast are Sir Guy Standing, John Halli-
day, Judith Allen, Tom Brown, Gertrude Michael
and William Frawley.
"The Witching Hour" tells the story of old love
coming to life to save and strengthen a newly-
born romance, and includes in its events a murder
committed under hypnotic spell and a court-room
vindication.
Tom Brown, fiance of Judith Allen, comes under
the hypnotic influence of Judith's father, John
Halliday. Halliday, himself, doesn't realize the
power he possesses, and, when Brown, through
Halliday's hypnotic suggestion, commits a murder,
he is horrified.
Brown is bewildered at his action, and declares
he can remember nothing about the murder.
Brown's mother makes a desperate appeal to
Halliday to save the boy, and Halliday, convinced
of his own part in the murder, exerts every effort
to save him. A courtroom battle follows with Sir
Guy Standing prominent as the defending lawyer.
He, like Grumpy in the play by that name, is a
retired jurist who comes to the rescue of his young
friend.
Women always intrigue privately against the
higher souls of their husbands; they want to cheat
them out of their future for the sake of a painless
and comfortable present. -Nietzsche.
