A Suggestion
For The League.
THE LEAGUE DANCES held every
Friday are organized for the espe-
cial purpose of bringing members of the University
Summer Session together in closer social relation.
It is our opinion that these dances, although suc-
cessful, have failed to a great extent in achiev-
ing their principal purpose.
The super-efficient ticket system, whereby a
male guest must first show his ticket at the
head of the main stairway and then again when he
passes through a second set of doors leading even-
tually to a third set of doors and the ballroom, is
extremely annoying and quite unnecessary.
This, however, is not all. One may pass the first
portal unaccompanied by a member of the female
sex. But at the second doorway the strong arm
of the law takes effect. It seems that before one
can pass this door one must have a girl either
on his arm or in the near vicinity.
We appreciate the fact that the League wishes to
avoid "stag" .lines. They have substituted hosts
and bostesses. However, there are not a sufficient
number of hosts and hostesses to "mix" the crowd
sufficiently under the present system.
"Stag" lines undoubtedly have certain objection-
able features at such places as the ordinary "dime-
a-dance" halls. Unpleasant incidents may ensue
with the type of crowd which frequents these
places. On the other hand, these objections are
minimized or eliminated completely when one con-
siders the type of crowd which frequents the
League dances. It is, for the most part, a definitely
superior class.
Because of the fact that stags cannot get past
the second door, which is at least 25 yards from
the ballroom proper, it is extremely difficult for
them to get dances, because most of the girls are
inside of the sacred portals beyond the reach of the
dance-hungry stag. The only opportunity that a
stag has to contact a girl for a dance is during an
intermission. This time is not as appropriate for
most of the women are congregated in groups and
it is embarrassing for the man who does not
know the girl too well to break in on such a group
to ask for a dance.
Under the existing system it is practically useless
for the, unaccompanied man to go to a League
dance because if he is unfortunate enough not to
make a contact for a dance he is unable even to
hear the music due to the annoying "second door"
system.
For these reasons we advocate the installation
of a stag line at League dances, although at the
same time maintaining the hosts and hostesses. We
also ifavor the elimination of the system whereby
a-. sta not only has to show his ticket at the
second door but also must be accompanied by a
girl. In this manner the hosts and hostesses could
definitely "mix" the crowd wishing to dance, and
stags could cut in on the floor without the embar-
rassment of having to approach a girl during inter-
mission when she is conversing in a group. Also,
those persons who fail to make contacts for a
dance could at least get close enough to hear the

music.
Let Them Be Gay . .
THE HOUSE OF COMMONS in the:
Canadian Parliament recently voted
down a resolution that the Prime Minister refrain
from making further recommendations for British
titles for residents of Canada. The question aroused
wide-spread interest because the battle lines were
drawn between the Liberal and radical party

that if some had rendered great service, there could
be no harm in recognizing those services.
What is of importance in this to Americans is
that English politics, of which Canadian politics is
largely a counterpart, is free of political patronage,
except for the practice of conferring upon large
contributors to political coffers for election and
campaign expenses, titles from the Crown "for
distinguished services to the pountry."
England is better off politically, in the opinion of
Prof. James K. Pollock, the University of Michigan
authority on political parties and election both
here and abroad, than is this country, because
of her better constitutional structure, her higher
ethical standards in politics, and because she
has been through political corruption induced by
unethical use of money in politics, and, having
learned that corruption does not pay as much
as conducting politics "on the up and up," she is
far in advance of America in matters of political
ethics and practice.
England, followed by Canada, has learned how
to conduct her politics in General Johnson's gold-
fish bowl and, says Professor Pollock, is better
off for it. Rather than conferring tariff, income
tax, inside information, or job favors upon the
larger contributions to the war chests of the
parties, the political leaders recommend for admis-
sion to the peerage the millionaire whiskey and ale
manufacturers, the shipping barons, the newspaper
tycoons, and the molasses kings.
The protest against this practice by Canadian
Liberal and radical politicians would seem to be
an attempt to drum up popular prejudice against
p, party evidently more favored by campaign con-
tributions. With finances the life-blood of a polit-
ical party, contributions must be garnered from
party supporters, interested for one reason or
another in backing the party.
Political scientists advance the theory that more
interest in politics could be stimulated if con-
tributions were collected in small amounts from
the masses of a party's supporters. Instead of quib-
bling over where the opposition gets its money, let
the Liberal and radical groups of Canada rely upon
the greater moral support gained by depending
upon contributions from the common people of
the party; and let them rejoice that their country
need not suffer from the scourge of political pat-
ronage as perfected by the Doheneys, the Falls
the Mellons and the Jimmy Walkers of American
political experience.
Musical Events
FACULTY CONCERT
Three members of the faculty of the School of
Music will appear in the role of soloists on their
respective instruments in the third of the series of
summer faculty concerts to be given in Hill Audi-
torium, Tuesday evening, July 17, at 8:30 o'clock
'Cello, piano, and the organ will be the -instru-
ments on which the music chosen for the eve-
ning's program will be presented.
Saint-Saen's melodic and vitally rhythmic con-
certo for the 'cello provides an opportunity for Pro-
fessor Pick to exhibit the rich tone qualities of the
instrument and his complete command of the tech-
nical resources demanded for the proper perform-
ance of the music.
Professor Brinkman has chosen his group o
piano solos from the works of Chopin. The variety
of moods range from dance forms, brilliant tech-
nical studies to a dreamy nocturne, and a gay
sparkling scherzo.
Two of the greatest of the nineteenth century
French composers for the organ will be heard in
the group which Mr. Doty has chosen to conclude
the program. The mystic Franck is represented
by a Cantabile, and the democratic, cosmopolitan
Guilmant is to be heard in one of his gayest
moods, the Allegro Appassionata from the Fifth
Sonata for Organ.
There is no admission charge, and the genera
public with the exception of small children is
cordially invited.
The complete program is appended:

EVELYN COHEN, Costume Designer, is faced
with the most difficult task of the season in con-
nection with "The School For Scandal." Period
plays are always difficult for the costumiere, for
mistakes in authenticity are then most easily
made. Pictures and books are the most reliable
sources of information. She is being assisted by
her class in Costuming.
TO DIRECTOR Valentine B. Windt goes the
credit for directing two of the best shows Ann
Arbor has seen in a long time - and they were
both by the same author. "Elizabeth the Queen,"
with Sally Pierce and Jay Pozz in the leads, was
the most successful play of the winter season, and
"Both Your Houses" is on a nar with it. Dire-
