Session Opens.. ..
rT HE Forty-First Summer Session of
the University of Michigan is un-
der way. Students from all sections of the Country
and from foreign nations have gathered at this
center of learning to receive instruction from
faculties numbering more than four hundred, some
of whom are from other educational institutions
in this country and abroad.
We welcome you to the University and to Ann
Arbor. Many of you have attended other Summer
Sessions here; others have been here during the
regular academic year. To you who are acquainted
with the University and the many advantages it
affords during the eight weeks of the Summer
Session little can be said. To you who are here for
the first time we extend the hope and the predic-
tion that your stay will be so pleasant and suc-
cessful as to warrant your early return.
The Summer Session is in many ways a unique
institution. Laking as it does those organiza-
tions which, through their very nature, auto-
matically provide a basis for good fellowship, so-
cial contact, and outside interest during a normals
college year, the Summer Session has accepted
the obligation of providing its own substitutes.
As a result, Summer Session students and visit-
ing faculty members are provided with many fa-
cilities not offered to those attending regular ses-
sions of the University. In addition to the normal
activities presented during the winter season, ad-
ditional features such as conducted tours, a com-
plete lecture series, student plays, and noted edu-
cators from other institutions are provided.
Those who are in Ann Arbor for the first time
will soon discover the advantages of these features
and will, we are sure, consider the summer of
1934 one of the most profitable and enjoyable of
their entire educational career.
The academic work, it might be pointed out, is
equivalent in method, character, and credit value
to similar work offered during the regular ses-
sion. The faculty, on the other hand, is enriched
with the presence of well-known educators from
The summer plays, produced for the entertain-
meit of those attending the Summer Session, are
offered by the Michigan Repertory Players, now
in their sixth summer season Looking forward to
their most successful year, they will offer nine
plays during the coming eight weeks.
Eleven excursions, including the nationally-
known trip to Niagara Falls under the direction
of Prof. William H. Hobbs, are offered to those
interested in the educational value and sheer en-
joyment of such ventures.
A series of lectures, by both resident and visit-
ing faculty members, are to be given during the
Session. Social evenings are being planned under
the direction of a Social Director whose sole duty
is to provide recreation for the University's sum-
mer guests. Concerts, under the direction of the
School of Music, will take place at various times
during the summer. Additional recreational fa-
cilities are provided in the new University golf
course - said to be the finest collegiate , course
in the country, the gymnasiums, the tennis courts,'
intramural athletic programs, and special ath-
letic programs for women.
Summed up, a Summer Session at the University
is one of the finest investments which can be
made - as is evidenced in the number of stu-
dents returning this year who have enjoyed its
advantages in the past. The very best which can
be obtained has been made available for you. Make
the most of your opportunities during these two
months and you will count the summer an un-
the tuition fee of each student.
This widespread circulation makes it possible
for The Daily to provide constructive official no-
tices of all worth-while events occurring on the
Michigan campus. It also means, however, that
during the summer months The Daily is more
than ever an institution belonging to the campus
as a whole. Each student, each faculty mem-
ber, should take an active interest in The Daily
and in its attempt to serve the summer group.
This summer, for the first time, The Daily edi-
torial staff has been greatly enlarged. A larger
staff means a wider coverage of local events of
interest and results, in the end, in a better news-
paper. It means that your morning newspaper
will contain more items of personal interest to you
and your associates and less of the material com-
rhonly known to editors and readers alike as
Appreciating the interest among university stu-
dents in important happenings of the day, The
Daily will also furnish, through its leased As-
sociated Press wire, reports of state, national; and
international importance. It will not attempt to,
sacrifice space needed for accounts of local sig-
nificance, however, knowing that its sphere is in
no wise comparable to that of the metropolitan
press. It intends to remain, above all else, a
University of Michigan newspaper.
The Daily desires your support, interest, and,
criticism. If there is some feature about The
Daily that you don't like, then its editors want to
know about it. If, in striving to serve your in-
terests, it should succeed, The Daily would like-
wise appreciate your comment to that effect. As
the "official publication of the Summer Session"
The Daily is your own newspaper and its editors
wish you to regard it as such.
Letters published in this column should not be con-
strued as expressing the editorial opinion of The
Daily. Anonymous communications will be disregarded.
The names of communicants will, however, be re-
garded as confidential upon request. Contributors
are asked oto be brief, confining themselves to less
than 500 words if possible.
WORDS AND PHRASES
ON THE PERNICIOUS "WEED"
The distinguished Alumna who denounced a
false representation of University women, and who
signed her article in the Michigan Daily, M. M. A.,
pointed with pride to her friend, Katharine Hol-
land Brown, as one who had brought unprecedent-
ed honor to her Alma Mater. This woman was my
friend, too, and it is for that reason that I dedicate
to you, M. M., A., and to all gentle readers, these
few words in order to present, however briefly, cer-
tain matters which are apt to be overlooked.
I do not regret that you may be uninitiated in
the knowledge of what I here express in brokenE
"ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON"
If the Michigan Repertory Players continue to
present as high a type of entertainment as James
Hagan's "One Sunday Afternoon" afforded the
audience at the opening Friday night, the success
of the season is already assured. This play, the
naive story of love in a mid-western town back in
the days of the horseless carriage, was an ideal
vehicle for the initial production of the summer.
Valentine B. Windt, director, has an especial
knack for producing "period" plays - a knack
that was well illustrated in his handling of "One
Although this was Mr. Hagan's first excursion
into the field of drama, the result was worthy
of a master playwright. Introduced on Broadway in
the winter of 1933, it at first received a cool recep-
tion. Later, however, blase New York hailed it a
success. So warmly was it received that it played
eight months on the street of bright lights, came
within one vote of winning the Pulitzer Prize for
1933, and was later produced in the movies with a
similar success. Gary Cooper and Fay Wray played
the leads in the M.G.M. production.
One of the most remarkable features of the play
was its clever construction. The whole action of
the show centered around the prologue and epi-
logue which occur in modern time. The scenes in
between are in the form of a "flashback" to a
period "many years ago."
It combined a happy mixture of pathos, which
Iverged on melodrama, and comedy - and ended
with a happy touch. Mr. Hagan has a remarkable
talent for creating interesting characters.
The actual production of the play was faulty in
parts. We realize, of course, the difficulties, under
which the show was presented. But we felt that
the play could be improved greatly with. a little
more rehearsal. Here and there lack of it was evi-
dent. For example, several players were uncertain
of their lines. This was most evident in the first
scene between James Doll and Jay Pozz..
The fight scene between Charles Harrell and Mr.
Pozz was unconvincing, as most fight scenes on
the stage are. One could hardly see how the knock-
out punch delivered by Mr. Pozz would cause much
damage to the proverbial fly.
Although the cast was small, it consisted of
players with several years' experience, and there
were few of the weaknesses so common in a play
with a larger cast.
Mr. Pozz was very good in the role of Bill Grimes,
fiery-tempered town bully with big ideas. He was
quite up to the part and presented it convincingly.
His business, however, was faulty at times and his
carriage on the stage seemed stilted.
James Doll came through with his usual excel-
lent performance in the character role of Snappy
Downer - and was the only member of the entire
cast who looked his age in the prologie and epi-
logue. The "many years" in which the action of the
play took place didn't seem to "age" the othe's
Virginia Frink deserves much credit for her
handling of the part of Virginia Brush. She has
shown great improvement in the past year, and no
doubt turned in the best performance of her career

Of six deadly poisons in tobacco, and there are
many others in minute amounts, one is a paint

however, for the way he handled it.

who looked tough, Hattie Bell Ross, ideally cast,

Technically, with the exception of one or two
long waits between scenes, the show was perfect.

"LITTLE MISS MARKER"
Hollywood has a new star. And whether you be-
lieve it or not she makes Greta Garbo look like
last year's hat in comparison. Take Joan Craw-
ford, Marlene Dietrich, Constance Bennett - take
them all combined and they don't show a candle to
her. Honest, folks, she's the real goods. We're a
bit dizzy yet after seeing her for the first time
in "Little Miss Marker." We don't ever expect to
be the same.
Her name, folks -her name is Shirley Temple
(mark that), and she's just five years old. One
look at her and we promise you'll tumble like a
car load of bricks. She'll make you forget your
1 wives and sweethearts - this siren of the screen.
You should have seen what this Little Miss
Marker did to one Sorrowful Jones, big time
gambler and tough guy. He just melts under her
spell as did such characters as Big Steve, Bangel,
Bugs, Sore Toe, Regret and others with like mon-
ickers. When she turned it on them they didn't
have a chance. They just folded up and went soft.
Adolphe Menjou as Sorrowful Jones, Charles
Bickford as Big Steve, and Dorothy Dell as the
nightclub singer are all good mind you. They
help make the movie the success that it is. But
