In Reviw .. .
Mary Fishburne presented last night in the
School of Musica Auditorium a recital which is
part fulfillment of the requirements for the degree
of Master of Music. The importance of such a
recital cannot be overemphasized. The whole work
on the degree may be set aside if the public per-
formance is unsuccessful. Miss Fishburne need
worry not at all about that.
There is want of an adjective which would ade-
quately describe what Miss Fishburne did last
night. One thing is certain; there is no effeminancy
about her playing. Anyone who can present
Brahms' "Variations and Fugue on a Theme of
Handel" with such a display of power and strength
can hardly be called effeminate. There are six-
teen variations to the first part of the number
and they are followed by a Fugue. Perhaps the
greatest work in piano literature, and considered
practically unplayable, Miss Fishburne demon-
strated last night that the Brahms was by no
means beyond her capabilities.
Capabilities does not mean that Miss Fishburne
managed to play the Brahms, but that she played
it so well that one is tempted to stand up and shout
her praises. It was by far the most outstanding
number on the prograi, due in the first place, to
difficulty of the work'itself, and secondly because
of the excellent way it was played.
Miss Fishburne opened the recital with the Toc-
cata and Fugue in E minor by Johann Sebastian
Bach. There was a firmness about her touch which
made the Bach sound like that was the way it
should be played. Four short pieces made up the
middle section of her program and the whole was
concluded with a Prelude, Chorale and Fugue by
Franck.
Miss Fishburne a pupil of Joseph Brinkman, is
slender, slight, but for all her slimness,'plays with;
an enviable masculinity. -E LJ.

who has many friends to whom he introduces the
girl so that she manages to be in demand for a
time, she will not have an enjoyable evening.
She will either be returned after each dance
some hostess gets for her to her regular window
sill where she can look in - or be stuck with some
man who feels he's stuck -because the girl isn't
getting a rush.
That, editor, is something I can't understand.
Why is the masculine mind so herdish - when a
boy sees a girl some other boys like he likesa
her too, while all of them might enjoy dancing with:
another who has no one to push her, just as much
as if they'd try. But anyway, you and Dorothy Dix
will both say they are just backward so I'll push
on.
The reason the League dances are organized this
way is to give the girls a break. It doesn't, but
that's because the hostesses are so good looking
that they give the visiting superintendent and
principals and coaches and engineers and doctors
and lawyers ideas which aren't always fair to the
girls who came to be mixed.
Now, besides being on the job more, I think
the hostesses would be more effective if older -
just a bit older - they're all sweet girls (some of
my best friends, please don't divulge my identity)
but after all the League mixers are mixers not
dime-a-dance clubs and it's not the hostesses'
fault if this poor lonesome stag begs to dance
with her when she so beautifully ,asks him if he'd
like to dance. Men have the same reaction when
the lovely young nurse brings them their morning
toast - it's gratitude as well as other things. No ---
I think the hostesses should be older - decidedly
- they'd feel more responsible and not be so apt
to be missing when the little nursery school teacher
and her roommate wanted to ask her so badly if
they might meet those dear boys at the corner --
or even the other boys -in fact any boys so they
wouldn't have to sit there any longer.
I should think some women faculty members or
some Ann Arbor organization could supply some
sympathetic ladies and if not I think every girl
ought to be a hostess, and have the same chance
to "contact" a dancer.
And as for stag lines- not under the present
system. With every girl a hostess, yes - and per-
haps "doe" lines too, did you ever think of that.

TheStudent
And'War..
A NTI-WAR SENTIMENT of Mich-
igan youth was expressed last May
when the Michigan League Against War and
Militarism, hield an anti-war conference on the
campus. Attended by several hundred representa-
tives from high schools and colleges throughout
(the state, the conference crystallized student opin-
ion on such topics of world-wide concern as war,
militarism, Fascism, armaments and war-preven-
tion education.
With the world's two best theatres of war, Eu-
rope and the Far East, clearing their stages, set-
ting up properties and preparing for a large
ox-office in what well-informed observers predict
will be a grand opening in the near future in which
the United States has a 10 to 1 chance of getting
embroiled, the expression of student opinions on
the impending crisis and how this country might
call off all bets by refusing to become involved
makes worthy of comment the position of students
with regard to war and its prevention.
Life and culture enable us to see uniformity and
less confusion in all that occurs. Education in
youth is a period of intensive living, bringing
the experience of ages of students so that they
may order their lives to a pattern in mind and
habit. The American public, supporting free edu-
cation here, expects the lives of young men and
women students to be taken up Mi the future as
responsible citizens, contributing an element of
Intelligence to the consideration of public affairs.
This contribution is possible only if the future cit-
izens accustom themselves to read and think before
they discuss, and to discuss before they take a po-
sition or act.
Because fear is so heavy-handed in its destruc-
tion of reasoned courses to be pursued by interests,
either personal or national, it must be handicapped
in the race by thought, reasoning and a deter-
mination to defeat fear. Because we fear only
what we do not understand, war, which the best
thinking in history and in the world today does
not fully understand, must be learned about in all
its phases.
Fear, creating the suspicion that wealth, life
blood and national security are jeopardized, under-
lies the expressions of nationalism, imperialism,'
population spread and the other "causes" of war. It,
and its consequence, war, can be removed with
understanding brought about by education, plus a
determination not to swerve from a course of their
elimination.
America, it is said, will be involved in the
next war because the other nations of the world
could not put up a healthy fight without her
feeding, equiping and arming them. Observers,
seemingly as well-informed, assert that this coun-
try can keep out of war if a policy of neutrality,
strictly formulated far enough in advance to be
effective and one adhered to strictly enough to
counteract powerful domestic interests, greedy
for war profits, is adopted. If, then, neutrality is
tantamount to non-participation, America needs
only to begin to lay the groundwork for such a
policy to maintain world peace.
It is well, then, t/hat students should become part
of this groundwork, and by lusty expressions of
their sentiments on the waste and uselessness of
war, lay an anti-war stone here and there among
their fellows and elders.
Here are some suggested courses for the well-
rounded curriculum: Investigations in Ichthyology
261. Investigations in the Genetics of Invertebrates
281. Investigations in Mammalogy 295. They're all
in the Zoology department.

MORE LEAGUE DANCE SUGGESTIONS
To the Editor:
In answer to the editorial regarding the League
dances "organized for the especial purpose of
bringing members of the University Summer Ses-
sion together in closer social relation," which ap-
peared in the July 14 issue of The Michigan Daily.
I should like to agree that they aren't very suc-
cessful from the mixing point of view.
In the first place let me say that in the several
summers that I have attended the League dances,
I have enjoyed them very much - but then I knew
hostesses and people and men before I went. I have
gone with a crowd; I have gone escorted and have
had grand times, but often have I known students
who have gone once and been so bored and annoyed
that they never returned - they were strangers to
the campus, the very people for whom the dances
are intended.
Therefore, as social events the League dances
may be quite brilliant affairs, but as mixers I would
decidedly say they are not. But the editorial, so
virile in its masculine tone, suggesting the stag
line naturally has overlooked entirely the girls
who have come to the dance to meet and mix too,
and for a short time forget the more serious reasons
for coming to summer school.
I'm sure most of the stags who stand so pitifully
watching the lucky men who were wealthy enough
to be able to afford to bring a girl or fortunate
,enough to run off with a hostess and so have a
good time for. only a single admission must have
seen the girls.
I'm sure the Summer Observer must have seen
them if he had gone'so far in his search for atmos-
phere as to attend the University High School and
the Nursery School. I do not see how he could
have omitted the League dance in his ramblings
but in any event I await his reactions with an
appetite whetted by keen appreciation of his
menus in the past.
(Editor's Note: The Summer Observer wrote an
essay on the League dance. He, incidentally, is a
she.)
But, I digress - obviously I am not a journalism
student - I return to the girls whom the stags.
poor backward creatures, have left standing or
sitting in the luxurious League foyer.
To my eye they are not altogether without their
points and as a whole they are rather attractive.
True, some are a little older than the average
undergraduate male who hungrily gaze after the
little blonde hostess as she swings by on the arm
of another, but then they should consider the
maturity of perspective which even a dance with
an older woman might bring.
Likewise, though some may appear extremely so-
phisticated, ten to one it's a pose, and as long as
the unattached male soliciting a dance is taller
than the subject (this is a very important point)
she would probably smile her acceptance very
sweetly and be very grateful to any knight who
freed her from the foyer - the "girls" it seems
like to listen to the music once in a while too.
Then this matter of the women congregating
in groups during intermission, and so being unap-
proachable to the timorous stag who feels adequate
enough for one woman in any situation but is dis-
mayed by a harem (an indication of our mono-
gamous race tendencies) - this is a problem, but
it, too, has its solution, in fact, two solutions, to
wit: the timid soul may take his courage in both
hands, and push himself to the lady's side (thus
to enjoy the sweet thrill which comes when one
has conquered fear), or he may await the beginning
of the dance in hope that all the other girls in
the group or at least the majority will have it
and thus disappear so that "the" girl may be un-

MICHIGAN REVIEW
"BABY TAKE A BOW"

**

Shirley ................. Shirley Temple
Eddie Ellison .............. James Dunn
Kay Ellison ............... Claire Trevor
Welch .................Alan Dinehart
Larry Scott ................ Ray Walker
Jane ................... Dorothy Libaire
Every kid in town was at the Michigan Theatre
yesterday afternoon for the opening of Shirley
Temple's latest show "Baby, Take a Bow." Big
ones, little ones, tall ones, short ones - they were
all there, and they all seemed to get a tremendous
kick out of it.
And they saw the same Shirley Temple - the
same unspoiled, talented child protege with an in-
fectious smile and sparkling sense of humor.
But if the show wasn't everything that could
be desired in the way of screen entertainment
it wasn't Shirley's fault. The story, more thai
anything else, was to blame.
It just didn't compare with the inimitible plot
around which "Little Miss Marker" was laid. W(
realize that it's most difficult to provide a fitting
vehicle for this type of actress. They don't just
grow on trees.
The picture is a comedy-drama centering arounc
Shirley and her young parents, Jimmy Dunn am
Claire Trevor. Its theme is Dun~n's struggle for
happiness in spite of the handicap of a priso.
record.
His employer is robbed of a $50,000 pearl neck-
lace. Jimmy is suspected. Things look very glun
for him until Shirley comes to the rescue, unwit-
tingly proves his innocence, and wins a $5,00(
reward.
The director of this show, while good at bringin
out Shirley's talents, showed lack of restrain
on several occasions. The tear-jerking scenes wer
very unconvincing.
Jimmy Dunn was good as the fond father, bu
Claire Trevor had her weak moments, and Ala]
Dinehart couldn't convince us that he was half th
rogue that he was supposed to be.
Shirley Temple fans will enjoy the show anyway

"THE GREAT FLIRTATION"

Zita Marishka.............:Elissa Landi
Stephan Karpath ...... Adolphe Menjou
Larry Kenyon .......... David Manners
This picture furnishes cinemagoers with an-
other version of the much-abused triangle with an
unusual twist to the ending, the only apparent
excuse for the picture having been produced.
It is a rehash on the woman (Elissa Landi)
whose husband (Adolphe Menjou) is so domineer-
ing that not even she can stand him; they
separate; and Zita falls in love with the young
American playwright (David Manners). Stephan
and Zita have previously been married in Buda-
pest, whence they move to New York, where they
appear together in Kenyon's play. However, they
keep their marriage secret and Larry and Zita
fall in love, hence, the separation. Subsequently,
when Kenyon learns that Stephan and Zita are
man and wife, he tries to do the decent thing;
then, the clever ending.
We are sick of seeing Miss Landi draw second-
rate parts in third-rate pictures. Paramount has
wasted what looks like a really great acting team
in Mr. Menjou and Miss Landi. This pair deserve
better fare than this picture furnishes.
