Costs of printing the same number of ballots
varys greatly from county to county, the study
shows. One county, printing 5,800 ballots, paid
$110, while another, with 5,000, paid $351. Similarly
some counties print and pay for far more ballots
than they can reasonably expect to use. Cgnpeti-
tive bidding is recommended as a remedy, with
the possibility that the Secretary of State print
ballots for districts where all bids seem excessive.
Elimination of the party problems now appearing
on Michigan ballots and reducing the number of
elective officers to a minimum, by law and con-
stitutional amendment, would also cut the size
of the ballot with greater convenience to voters
and reduced cost. The report recommends voting
machines for election economy, speed and accu-
men who used the courts, refusing to surrender
their courts when needed. The remedy applied
would seem to be far out of proportion to the'
evil to be cured. Little annoyances such as thisI
regulation, which followed in the wake of the!
auto ban, should be made less onerous if pos-
sible, especially during the summer months.

or Teachers. . .bs
NOTHER INDICATION that busi-
-A ness is on the upturn, for teachers
at least, is found in a recent report of the Univer-
sity of Michigan Bureau of Appointments and
Occupational Information which states that dur-
ing the first three months of 1934 there were
twice as many calls for teachers than in the
same period for 1933. The survey also shows
that a number of schools are restoring salaries and
returning to the ten-month teaching year.
The upturn in teacher demand, according to
Dr. T. Luther Purdom, director, seems to be due
to varied causes. Some communities have more
money available. Others are seeking new and bet-
ter trained instructors instead of rehiring the less
desirable ones released during the depression. One
school, he reports, will hire 25 per cent of its staff
new next fall because improved business condi-
tions are permitting faculty marriages heretofore
delayed by financial difficulties.
"Beginning salaries are apparently about the
same as last year," Dr. Purdom finds, "but pro-
* motion chances seem to be much better because
institutions employing new teachers are searching
for the best trained people suited to hold a par-
ticular position. If these teachers live up to expec-
tations, their training an; background insures
more immediate recognition."
Teachers are still being asked to instruct in
from two to five subjects, but the outlook justifies
"moderate optimism" and a continuation of pres-
ent trends for another year would mean "a very
radical improvement in teacher employment."
Of Humor . .
HE UNITED STATES have never
justly prided themselves on the
quality of their state politicians, yet they have
always been able to be amused by the calibre of
the political antics within the various states. With
the advent of fall elections to the seventy-fourth
Congress, voters can at last find an opportunity
to exercise a sense of political humor which has
long remained dormant through depression years.
To the candidates themselves there is nothing
enigmatic about the caustic drama of government.
The one opines that the dilemma of the electorate
was solved nationally in Novembpr, 1932. He will
drone us into ecstasy with "alphabet soup" and
newer deals. The voter will be kindly apprised that
chaos was averted, disaster staved off, economic
death and political malady healed by a Roose-
veltian shuffle of the cards. So sufficiently spell-
bound will the electorate be at the receipt of this
discerning news that all will promptly look into
their pockets for prosperity dollars.
A glance at the soap box across the street will
offer the candidate dressed in the letter of
the Constitution, who, preferring his soup un-
alphabetized, can foresee nothing but "pink" poli-
ticians striving toward increased debts and worth-
less money, with a possible dictatorship or two
for best measure. We must throw out the radicals,
he cries, or look for dark deception and ruinous
years to follow.
The voter may smile, look over the entire scene,
and smile again. He has found his sense of humor.,
Report Shows State
Elections Costly. .
A LTHOUGH the permanent regis-
tration of voters, mandatory in
Fewer elective officers, serving longer terms I
would make possible a minimumof two elections
a year and do away with costly special elections,
the committee suggests.
The number and payment of precinct officers
should be defined by State law, to curb excesses
in some counties. Pay for such officials ranges
from 20 cents an hour to $15 a day, with little
regard to the number of voters handled, the survey
shows. One township, with only 54 voters, was
found to be employing seven officials at $7 a
Too many precincts and townships are exceeding
the legal limit of 650 voters, where ballots are
used, or 800 where machines are used, the report
states. Some precincts contain 2,000 registered
voters, a condition which causes long waiting and
discourages attendance at the polls. On the other
hand, some precincts are so small that secret voting
is almost impossible. Approximately a third of the
polling places have too few booths and many are
equipped with ballot boxes 30 years old and of a
type which make inaccuracy and fraud ps-
County clerks should be given power to supervise
all elections within their counties, empowering
them to request regular reports on registration,
costs and other information from township and
other election officers. In this way the Secretary
of State could get this data from the clerks in
complete form and plan economical election man
agement, the committee believes.
"Nothing is more vital in a democracy than
honest and efficient elections," the report states.
"Fortunately, this survey 'has not uncovered many
instances of corruption, and it is quite clear that
Michigan is relatively free from the grosser forms
of election irregularity. Nevertheless, the investiga-
,tion of the conduct of elections in Michigan points
unmistakably to the necessity of taking effective
and prompt action to eliminate inefficiencies and to
reduce the present high costs."
Opposition. . .
THERE MAY BE good arguments
against a stiffer income tax, but
the charge that it would eliminate the incentive
for expending extra effort and the profitable use
of business genius is not one of them.
The concentration of those opposed to the tax on
these grounds is that the high graduated tax on
incomes will bring into operation the economic
law of diminishing returns. With an increasing
rate a point will be reached where the amount of
effort added will not result in an equal return, and
the incentive inspiring initiative energy auto-
Such reasoning ignores the human trait that
causes a man ever to desire more, the characteristic
that keeps him from being satisfied as long as
there is a possibility of getting more worldly goods.
As long as the tax is not graded so drastically as
to mean ultimate cessation of earning power, it is
just as easy to believe that the average man will
redouble hi efforts when the tax begins to cut into
his income, as it is to suppose that he will become
discouraged and accept that point as his capital ac-
Were we to admit that such a tax would take
away the incentive for expending greater efforts,
that still would not be a strong argument against
the high income tax. The law of diminishing re-
turns would not begin to operate until a fairly
uarge fortune had been built up, and there is a
serious question of the need of further efforts to-
ward expanding that fortune. This country has
been developed to a point where it is no longer im-
portant that great wealth be concentrated in the
hands of an individual for the proper develop-
ment of an industry. In its natural state, rich
in resources and pregnant with possibilities for
exploitation, America needed its Fords, Morgans
and Rockefellers, but its great veins of potential
wealth have been tapped now.

To The Editor:
' Now that the summer session is under way and
there have been the usual number of self-congrat-
ulatory editorials and articles regarding the ad-
vantages of the university and Ann Arbor as an
educational and vacation center, it might be
well to take stock of the situation from the stand-
point of sporting facilities, especially as regards
the regulations at Palmer Field.
While the rules may have been necessary during
the school year, they would seem to be much too
stringent for the summer term when fewer stu-
dents attend school. The rules require not only
that a man must play as the guest of a girl but
By THE SUMMER OBSERVER.
The study hall on the first floor of the library
has changed books, changed librarians, and
changed students. A few still "cherchez la femme"
as they pass in the lobby. More of them sit, hold
a book, look at a syllabus, read, write, and sigh.
They are quite talkative, boldly daring the
"pinch-nez" marm across the table to glare at
them. She does not tumble to their trick. She is
concentrating on "Mind in the Making."
The frying heat can not touch some of these
cool minds. A wistful little woman reads tenderly,
"The Evolution of the Common School." Her com-
panion sadly lets her eyes rove over, "How to
Spend Your Leisure Time."
Neither one of them see a large pale man
who looks at them, not vacantly. He clears his
throat. He slaps his book down on the table
quite loudly. Nothing. Then, resigned, he opens
and looks at "The Relationship Between Play and
At the desk the conversation is like the weather.
"What is this place?"
"The study hall on the lower floor?"
"Lower floor? Lower than what? I thought the
lower study hall was below this one, and what
is that one called?"
"The study hall in the basement."
"Well, where is the first floor study hall?"
"Well, will you draw me a diagram? I'm so
accustomed to diagrams, that I - well, you see."
Out on the campus other cooked books were
making a great to do. A flock of charmer-salesmen
were cornering unsuspecting females. The large
beautiful things met their match in one saucy
younger miss. "Why, yes," she said as soon as she
saw the book. "Is there a recipe for jelly roll in
here?" The salesman was enchanted. He found
the recipe. And while she copied the treasure, he
stood by, reading to her, not exactly knowing why.
That done, she smiled and said, "Thank you,"
leaving a sad and embittered young man.
But the encounter of the one wearing a Delt
pin was sweeter. His smile was too much for
"her." She wilted. "The way to a man's heart," he
told her. The answer was in the book she held.
A limousine passed with a bride in full regalia.
She looked at her handsome Delt, and smoothing
her greying hair asked:
"And what, I wonder, is the way to a woman's

"SHE MADE HER BED"
Just another blood-and-thunder melerdramer
with everything from "fireman, save my child"
tripe to the poor helpless heroine being caught in
the same room with a (vicious) tiger. How in heav-
en's name Richard Arlen and Sally Eilers got
roped into such a show is beyond comprehension.
We expect them to play "Uncle Tom's Cabin" any-
The fire scene follows on the tiger scene just
like that. The villain puts the tiger in the room
with Sally Eilers and her baby, not knowing that
they are there. Sally throws the baby in the ice-
box (of all things) and escapes. Fire breaks out
and the villain (her husband) is burned to a crisp.
The baby, safe in the icebox, is unharmed, and
Sally is left free to marry her REAL love, Richard
Arlen, of course.
Robert Armstrong in the role 'of the villainous
husband who falls in love with a circus hoyden
and is very unfaithful to his oh-so-faithful wife,
Sally, is a flop. Eilers and Arlen can't overcome the
handicap of the vehicle. The only light in the dark-
ness is the stuttering Rosco Ates, who stutters all
over the place and manages to be slightly amusing.
Stay away unless you go in for this sort of thing.

to see a show, we'd recommend the Michigan. "The
Thin Man" is still playing. --P.J.E.

MICHIGAN REPERTORY PLAYERS
with Francis Compton as "Grumpy"
"Grumpy" is a doting grandfather of eighty odd years, irascible
and tender by turns. As a young man he had been a rather famous
criminal lawyer, and when his favorite nephew, carrying an uncut
diamond valued at something over four hundred thousand dollars
from the diamond fields of Africa to London, stops at Grumpy's
house and is robbed of the stone, all of the old gentleman's thief-
catching instincts are revived. The result is a very entertaining
evening in the theatre.
THE CRITICS SAY:
"I had a splendid time myself at "Grumpy," and feel a good deal as I
should if I had been off to a frivolous dinner, with champagne, gay company,
and no thought, and found myself the next morning with no indigestion."
-Norman Hopgood in "Harpers."
Grumpy is at once a comforting and inspiring personality, wholesome,
genuine, persuasive, and lovable." -Lawrence Eyre in the N.Y. Times.
