pointedly, it might be said that in the American
system of representative democracy, the majority
of the people's designated spokesmen in Congress
are accorded full power to act for them.
It might prove embarrassing to the Senators
proposing a filibuster should someone point out1
that the Constitution, which sacred document
they are so bent on defending to their dying
breath, makes no provision for the rule of mi-
norities. They proclaim that their fight is to
preserve democracy and yet from a democratic
point of view, their tactics are hardly compatible
with their high and lofty purpose. Perhaps they
will appeal to Hesrik Ibsen's old indictment of
the "compact majority."
On The Le
TODAY, little hope remains that Amelia Ear-
hart Putnam and Fred Noonan will ever be
found after running out of gasoline in the South-
ern Pacific Ocean. We sincerely regret the
levitous headline concerning Miss Putnam's
crash that appeared in our column Sunday, but
we feel that Amelia met death the way she
might have wanted to-with her helmet and
goggles on. Her body may never be found, but
her memory will never be lost. She did as much
for aviation and womanhood as any woman ever
We shall always remember Clarence Budding-
ton Kelland's introduction of this great aviatrix
at the Cleveland Great Lakes Exposition last
summer. World famous for his master-of-cere-
mony quips, Mr. Kelland presented Miss Earhart
with a speech that went something like this:
Well, I think the best way to introduce
the next speaker is to tell you a story about
a maid we once had named Agnes. Agnes was
a tremendous woman. She weighed some-
thing like 300 pounds when she died. When
Agnes got up to Heaven, the angels got to
work and put a pair of wings on her. After
the wings were firmly attached, Agnes took
off; struggled up to about ten feet, and then
fell with a tremendous thud. The wings were
too small for her.
But God was sitting up there on His
throne, and saw it all happen. He wanted
everybody to be happy in Heaven, so He
turned to one of His underlings and ordered
him to get Agnes a new pair of the latest
and strongest streamlined wings that were
available in Heaven. The new wings were
attached to Agnes' shoulder blades and she
took off once again. The new wings were
perfect, and Agnes soared up to about a
thousand feet. Up there, she began to do aill
sorts of intricate tricks-lmmelman' turns,
barrel rolls,. power dives, nose dives, and
tail spins. God was watching her from down
below. Finally, after an exhibition of stunt
flying the likes of which Ile had never seen
before, He turned to His right hand, "Jesus,"
God said, "How that gal can fly!"
With this, Kelland sat down, and Amelia rose
to speak to the applauding thousands. That's
how we like to remember her.

Tom Keppelman and Bob Root got quite a
laugh the other night when they were approached
by two rather elderly women in front of one of
the downtown brew halls. The women greatly
resembled the matronly couple who are always
together in Helen Hokinson's grand cartoons, and
each pointed a timid finger at the dive, which
was crowded to capacity with beer sippers.
"Pardon us," they unisoned, "Can we get fresh
watermelon in there? We want to see a little
college life." Tom and Bob directed the pair
to another place where they could find the
college atmosphere they were after, and eat
fresh watermelon at the same time.

MURIEL HASSARD and Polly Powers went to
a lot of trouble late one recent night so that
they might abide by all the laws and ordinances
of Ann Arbor. It seems that if you park you
car on the street all night you are supposed to
either keep the parking lights burning or put a
lantern on it. Polly decided on a kerosene lan-
tern for her car. But the two girls burnt the
directions sheet when they first tried to light
the lamp, and when the lamp didn't work, they
didn't know exactly what to do about it. .They
finally prevailed upon an innocent bystander,
who succeeded in making the lantern light after
covering his hands, face, and suit with soot and
Hal Blackburn swears to this one. After
he had watched a fellow hide a bottle of alco-
holic beverage behind a victrola and then leave
the room, Hal went over and emptied the con-
tents of the bottle into another container and
filled the original bottle with water. Hal then
watched he fellow when he returned to the
room and uncorked the bottle. After a long
swig, the drinker took the bottle from his lips,
made a wry face, shook his head, exhaled heart-
ily, and then reeled out of the room.
We too have been affected in this same way -
by Ann Arbor water.

A Pat On The Back
To the Editor:
A visitor from a northern Ontario city of illit-
erates, in that two thirds of the population are
of the poorest foreign extraction, may I voice my
appreciation of this wonderful city of "high-
brows." We, who have practically no flora,
cannot but glory in the magnificent setting of
your campus, and also the wonderful architec-
ture and the sincerity of purpose that seems to
emanate from the young people of your Uni-
versity. Lantern Night was particularly lovely,
and here I wish to congratulate your band leader,
Professor Revelli, who has attained an unusually
high standard with his musicians whose num-
bers on that night were so enjoyable. This band
is particularly well balanced and displayed much
beauty of shading and execution in their splendid
program. The University of Michigan has rea-
son to be proud of this organization. I have
never listened ko one of its size that excelled it,
.and it has been my privilege to listen to many
bands from many countries.
The reception to the summer school students
was also most delightful. The gracious welcome
extended by the receiving line and the all-per-
vading sense of friendliness were particularly
noticeable. This same spirit of hospitality ap-
pears to prevail in the homes where the students
are domiciled. The little hostess of my present
abode takes a very personal, but unobtrusive, in-
terest in every one of her 15 boys.
Your wonderful graduation service, so unique
in its environment and method of awarding de-
grees was well worth coming a thousand miles
to see, and distinctly thrilled a stranger in a

As Others See It
How To Read A College Newspaper
(From California Pelican)
rfHESE INSTRUCTIONS on how to decipher,
properly, the meanings intended by any
under-graduate newspaper, are the fruits of two
years of intensive effort. To be effective, they
must be adhered to studiously, or else ... !
1. Pay absolutely no attention to the head-
lines; they have nothing to do with the stories
and are only the random thoughts of the men
on issue. Just disregard them.
2. If you want a bit of real, timely news,
which is no more than two days old, look on
the last page, lower left hand corner. It will
be concealed in some insignificant bit of adver-
tising copy, but don't let that fool you.
3. Every news story is to be read by beginning
at the third line; that is really the first line.
Then go back to the top line; that is the second
line;under that you will find the third line. Us-
ing this system, read all the way down the col-
umn, if you can.
4. Graciously and calmly ignore all peculiar
words, relegating them to linotyper's ingenuity
and proofreader's hangover.
5. Kindly allow for the fact that all sports
stories are at least five days old, and sixty-five
per cent erroneous. If you must read these col-
umns, just take in the opening paragraph; the
remainder of the story is only elaboration, mere
paraphrasing in novel fashion.
6. All names are invariably misspelled as a
matter of routine business, especially if it is your
own. Even the editor's name is distorted into
some unrecognizable monstrosity. What chance-
7. If a story you are reading ends abruptly
at the bottom of the page, forget it. That's the
end of that news tid-bit!
8. Never rely on the date given at the top of
the page. It's wrong!
ence made almost unbearable by his wife Ze-
nobia's chronic hyperchondria comes the young
cousin, Mattie Silver. In the scenes that follow
the tale of the awakening love of Ethan for Mat-
tie, and Zeena's growing hatred and suspicion
moves on in on atmosphere of inescapable doom
that reaches its height on that fatal evening
when Mattie and Ethan start out on their last
toboggan ride ogether.
The third act of the play would be almost too
harrowing were it not for the warm and likeable
personality of Ralph Bell in the title role. Al-
though this is in contrast to the solitary, inartic-
ulate figure that Mrs. Wharton has created, it
makes Ethan a more understandable and sym-
pathetic character to the average audience. Bell
is not the "slim, powerfully built New Englander"
that the author describes, and he is handicapped
in his attempt at colloquial speech by voice inflec-
tions obviously not New England in origin. How-
ever, his characterization is honest and straight-
forward, and his acting is marked by deeper in-
sight and more maturity than in previous per-
formances. Claribel Baird as the weak, hard,
pitiable Zeena plays with restraint a part that
might readily become ridiculous in less capable
hands. She achieves the New England twang.
The simplicity of Mattie's love . for Ethan is
charmingly interpreted by Mary Pray. The
three leading characters work together effective-
ly and accomplish a balance without the over-
emphasis on Zeena's eccentricities, Ethan's gruff
