citizens of the commonwealth. It is the business of
the state to give equal opportunity to all the
children whether they be rich or whether they
be poor. But to bring this about will require
a complete reorganization of our educational sys-
tem on the basis of larger units where a broad
curriculum can be introduced; where a variety
of teachers may be employed, and where the tax
Durden will be spread over a larger area so that
both rich and poor may bear their just share of
the burden.
"All of our problems eventually lead to the ques-
.tion: Where shall we get the money? In attempting
to solve this problem as it affects education we
shall find it necessary to determine which districts
have collected income greater than their needs and
which ones do not have the where-with-all that is
necessary to support their schools. Michigan is a
wealthy state. There is a stream of gold at the
present moment flowing to our manufacturing cen-
ters. Some one is making money. It is a principle1
of taxation that the burden should fall upon those
who are able to pay.
"We cannot continue to levy taxes on small
farms and small homes beyond the ability of the
people to pay. We must tax the incomes or the
intangibles. We must get the money where it is
to be found. The wealth of Michigan belongs to
the people of Michigan. In the final analysis there
are no property rights that are more sacred than
human rights. Every child has the right to live,
the right to be free, the right to pursue happi-
ness, the right to get an education. These rights
inust be safe-guarded even though it be necessary
to levy still higher taxes on the people who are
able to pay."

COMMENT ON STRIKE STORY
To The Editor:j
The Michigan Daily evidently takes pride in
being an Associated Press newspaper -in telling
the truth interestingly. However, in the rather
lengthy write-up of the strike in San Francisco in
,Tuesday's issue, a technical as well as moral error
was committed by the Associated Press.
Good reporting requires a why as well as a where
and who. Yet 33 paragraphs failed to tell why
65,000 men were striking. And 65,000 men can't be
entirely wrong!
We are told that the "National Guard, police__
are preparing for trouble with tanks, cannon." We
are told that "strikers were reported picketing
against supply trucks."
Truths - but only half-truths. The Associated
Press is clever, and one must use all their intelli-
gence in reading its report in order to get at the
interesting truth."
{ If the Associated Press will flaunt its banner
under the cause of truth without defiling the name,
let it change its slogan to "The WHOLE Truth
Told Interestingly."

THIRD FACULTY CONCERT
In Review
No matter how well-balanced these faculty con-
certs appear to be when originally planned, there
is always one part of the program that stands
out above the rest. This was true of the Chopin
numbers played by Joseph Brinkman last night.
Mr. Brinkman is to be commended (1) for his
careful choice from the works of the composer,
and (2) for his very excellent rendition of all
six of the Chopin pieces. He opened his group
with the F major Ballade, one of those surprising
Chopin numbers which has a slow, lyric beginning
and suddenly launches into an unusual and elab-
orate development of the first movement. It takes
an artist to play that sort of thing well, and Mr.
Brinkman left nothing to be desired.
The C-sharp minor Scherzo, fifth number of
the group, also deserves special recognition due to
the very excellent way Mr. Brinkman played it.
He chose the D-flat waltz for an encore.
Opening the program Hanns Pick, professor of
violoncello at the School of Music, played Saint-
Saens Concerto in A minor. Mr. Brinkman who
accompanied Mr. Pick at the piano, effectively
brought out the very vest qualities of the Saint-
Saens accompaniment. Mr. Pick played J. B. Cram-
er's Valse for an encore.
E. William Doty, the very young member of
the Music School faculty, played well selections
for the organ by Fanck and Guilmant. -E.I.J.

"THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL"
OPENS TONIGHT
IF ONE IS TO BELIEVE all that one hears, "The
School for Scandal," which opens at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre tonight, should be one of the
highlights of this (so far) very successful season.
For one thing Richard Brinsley Sheridan wrote
it. And for another Francis Compton, remembered
for "Grumpy," has directed it and will appear
in the leading role. That almost cinches things.
THE CAST should do justice to the vehicle, for
it contains a group of seasoned actors and ac-
tresses. In fact it's practically an all-star cast.'
Among the old timers (meant as a compliment)
are Sally Pierce, Jay Pozz, James Doll, Frank Funk,
and Goddard Light - all players of proven ability.
Then we have Claribel Baird, Nancy Bowman,
Charles Harrell, and Carl Nelson with first-rate
possibilities.

NEW YORK, July 17. - (/P) -The
search for the missing Agnes C. Tuf-
verson, New York and Detroit lawyer,
took on an impetus today with police
seeking the woman in Philadelphia
and Montreal.
Acting Capt. John G. Stein, in
charge of the police missing persons
bureau, said that Elora Miller, a Negro
maid, asserted that Poderjay told her
his wife had gone to Philadelphia or
Montreal.
Meanwhile, officials of the district
attorney's office prepared to subpoena
Ernest Churcher, a steward on the
liner Olympic, when that ship docks.
Assistant District Attorney Harold
W. Hastings said the purpose of sum-
noning Churcher was to have him re-
peat for the grand jury conversations
with Poderjay on the ship.

PetitiOns Filed
By Supotrs
Of Groesbeck
Submit Names Of 22,000
Backers To Department
Of State
LANSIN, July 17. -- (P) - Peti-
tions qualifying Alex J. Groesbeck as
a candidate for the Republican rioni-
nation for Governor were filed with
the Department of State today. They
were submitted by a committee and
contained about 22,000 signatures.'
Members of the delegation claimed
to have another 100,00 names which
were not submitted. The committee
which brought the petitions here was
made of John S. Haggerty, of ]e-
troit, who recently became reconciled
with Groesbeck after several years
of political enmity; former Senator
Chester M. Howell, of Chesaning; Isa-
belle Larwill, of Adrian, former mem-
ber of the State Commission of Lpbor
and Industry; A. J. Polk, of Detroit;
Dr. E. G. Weeks, of Saginaw; George
W. Hall, of Grand Rapids; Miss Bessie
B. Murchie of Detroit, and E. H.
Knott, of Saginaw.
The committee issued a statement
declaring that "thousands of Mich-
igan citizens had laid aside partisan-
ship in, the face of an emergency and
have united in a movement to draft
a man to the highest office in the
state." The statement asserted that
Groesbeck is being drafted because a
man of "broad experience and execu-
tive ability must be chosen to measure
up to the job."
The petitions were handed to Frank
D. Fitzgerald, Secretary of State, and
the only other candidate for the
Republican nomination who has qual-
ified. Members of the committee were
unable to state whether Groesbepk
intends to run, but several predicted
that he would answer the draft call
and be in the race. Groesbeck has
until July 27 to make up his mind. If
he has not withdrawn by that date his
name will go on the September pri-
mary ballots automatically.
Frank Picard May Be
Slated For U. S. Senate
SAGINAW, July 17.-(A)-Plans
to qualify Frank A. Pickard, chair-
man of the liquor control commission,
as Democratic candtidate for senator
are proceeding even though Piad
is still hesitant about his candid(acy,
James E. O'Neill, acting chairman of
the Picard-for-Senator movement,
announced here today.
O'Neill said it is proving unneces-
sary to perfect a state organization
to promote Picard's candidacy because
enough petitions are being received.
He is confident Picard will heed the
call and become an active candidate

T HAS BEEN the policy of Adolf
Hitler ever since his elevation to
poWer to control, as much as was humanly pos-
sible, the private lives of the citizens of Germany.
He has expelled the Jews from Germany. He has
told the German electorate how to vote in the
national elections, and he has told the populace
what it shall think and say --in public.
Throughout this period the youth of Germany,
inspired by hysterical patriotism and compelling
orators, has been behind him in the form of the
S.A. -the Nazi Storm Troops. But since the
"prging" two weeks ago Hitler has about-faced
and rapidly alienated this element of the people. He
dskanded the Storm Troops and left the troopers
ashamed of their former connection with the body
because of the revelations made in connection with
the crushing of the "second revolution."
Now, after inflicting this first insult to the youth
of the Fatherland, Hitler has proceeded to heap
injury upon it. He has ordered that the ancient
fraternities in the German universities be aban-
doned - presumably because they might foment
political un'est. And the students have revolted
At Goettingen University one thousand frater-
nity members battled brown-shirted Nazi sympa-
thzers in defense of their club colors and the
ten leaders were arrested.
The Germans are a sentimental people - not
the kind to allow their traditional customs to be
tampered with without a fight. Nothing could be
more carefully planned to alienate the entire class
of educated Germans than this move to abolish
college fraternities. As in the United States, Ger-
mans look back on their college days with pleasure
and no little part of this remembrance lies in the
fraternity affiliations. Thus, not only will the pres-
ent members of the clubs resent this summary ex-
tinction, but the whole educated class in Germany
will feel that it personally is being affronted.
The business of being a dictator requires almost
superhuman tact and judgment. The leader must
get the country behind him in some movement
which is considered necessary, but he must be
careful not to let his new-found power carry him
so far that he alienates his supporters.
"Der Fuehrer" it seems, has not learned his les-
son well enough. If he wants to stay in power and
to retain what prestige he still has among his
countrymen he would do well to tend to his political
knitting and leave the private lives of his "sub-
jects" alone.
Dr. Voelker
011 Educatio . . .
N HIS ADDRESS last week to those
attending the fifth Annual Summer
Educational Conference, Dr. Paul F. Voelker, State
superintendent of public instruction, selected one
of the most vital current problems in education
for discussion. Woven into his general remarks
conberning schools in Michigan, were some very
imposing statements regarding the economic side
of education as affecting individuals. That part
ofrhis speech dealing with this all-important mat-
ter is well deserving of repetition.
"We have already found one district in Michigan
where no one has gone to high school for sev-
enteen years," Dr. Voelker said. "There are thou-
sands of boys and girls in our rural districts
today who are denied high school privileges be-
cause there is no money to pay their tuition.
There are many small communities where the
,eaching facilities, the school equipment, the nar-
row curriculum have been so poor as to make the
education of the children practically worthless for
a modern ae. Only a few miles away there is a

Laughing Boy.........Ramon Novarro
Slim Girl..................Lupe Velez
And .......... A Flock of Poor Indians
Oliver La Farge's novel, "Laughing Boy," may
have been the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize, but the
filn moguls sure did things to it - awful things.'
The movie is one of the worst atrocities ever per-
petrated on a long-suffering cinema public. If Mr.
La Farge were dead, he would most certainly turn,
over in -his grave.
It's one of those movies you try and forget as
soon as possible. You want to pretend it never hap-
pened. Just another reason why reviewers commit
suicide. If we weren't so polite we'd say it's foul,.
But it really doesn't matter anyway. Nothing mat-
ters.
We wouldn't even bother to write this review if
we didn't feel that movie-goers deserve a break.
We're warning you - stay away. And, after all this,
if you decide to waste your time and money -
(don't say we didn't warn you. That's all.
How's this for a plot. Mr. Novarro is a good In-
dian. Miss Velez is not. She seduces him, They
marry. To establish a home they need money. So
Miss Velez gets money from a White man in return
for - Mr. Novarro finds out. He pulls out his
trusty bow and arrow and shoots - bingo, like that.
He misses the White man and hits Miss Velez. She
dies. Curtain.
To make it a full length picture, Mr. Novarro
sings and sings to the moon - frightfully off key.
And Miss Velez rolls her eyes - and her hips and
unsuccessfully tries to convince you that she's
really not as rotten as she is.
The only light in the utter darkness is a
comedy which, in comparison to the principal de-
traction, is excellent. It's called "'Tis Spring" and
isn't half bad. Hugh Herbert and Allen Jenkins
are cast as a couple hobos who have a very in-
teresting time at a girls' school.
"Little Man, What Now?" is still playing at the
Michigan. -C.A.B.

THE GRADUATE
To the Editor:
There has never been a time in this country
before when the college graduate faced so difficult
a situation. It is a time when there is little demand
for personnel in any field, when numbers are being
reduced in nearly every trade and profession, when
many capable veterans, who have earned their
places by years of devoted service are having their
salaries reduced, being put on part time, or dis-
charged altogether.
What chance has the young and inexperienced
recruit from academic halls of finding a place
in such a world? The world is not asking for his
services. Industry, staggering under its load of un-
employment, looks aghast at the mere thought of
another group to be provided for.
Does it not show that there is something funda-
mentally wrong in the organization ofany country,
when it has made no provision for using the
services of two or three hundred thousands of
superior young people on whom it has spent sixteen
years of training?
Under normal conditions, they might be expected
to find more or less suitable places for themselves.
It is difficult to see how the state can plan if all
business is in the hands of private individuals, but
the state has in one form or another provided the
institutions and teachers for these young people.
It is concerned that its efforts shall not be wasted.
It may be said that since society is not yet ready
to utilize their services the proper procedure is for
them to continue with their education. This is true

PEOPLE STARTED talking when Claribel Baird
did such a beautiful job with the role of Bus in
"Both Your Houses" last week. Who is she? Where
did she come from? they asked. This might in-
terest them. Claribel is a Mrs., the mother of a
three-year-old child, Jerry. She is an instruc-
tor at Oklahoma Women's College and is here
working on an advance degree.
* * * *
HER BOY, JERRY, didn't wait long to follow
In his mother's footsteps and make his stage debut.
He's been in three major productions at the College
already. At the age of three weeks he played the
Christ child in the annual Christmas presentation
and since then has appeared in "Rackety-Packety"
and "The Piper." He's back in Oklahoma, and local
audiences are not likely to get a glimpse of him.
They'll hear plenty about him, though, if they
get any place near Claribel.
AUTHOR SHERIDAN must have derived much
amusement from naming the characters in his play.
For example -Lady Sneerwell, Mrs. Candour, Sir
Benjamin Backbite, Careless and Trip.

WE WISH TO BEG Nancy Bowman's forgiveness
for an oversight in yesterday's column. Tonight's
