THE PROFESSOR AND RESEARCHI
Percy Mac Kaye's acceptance of a pr fessorship
at Miami university, which asks .::n in return for a
home and&his salary-only to continue his work as a
dramatist, marks a novel step in American educa-
tion. In the history of universities, there are many
instances of men doing research work and teaching
a few hours of classes, but it is said to be a new
thing to retain a professor, whose only duty.is to
undertake research. It is a step toward progress,
but in reality it' is nothing new at all. In the Mid-
dle Ages the monks, who were the educators of their
times, devoted most of. their hours to study, and
only a few of them taught anything directly. Since
then that practice has generally been discontinued,.
but occsionally some rich individual has enabled
an eminent professor to carrytontresearch work;
with ,nothing to distract him. Often in large un-
versities, the most prominent men are required to
teach only one class a day and to devote the rest of
their time to research and study. Others have held
positions, which have permitted them to do much
outside work, but Mr. Mac Kaye's appointment as
a professor with no specific duties, is most unique.
At last the universities are recognizing the value of
research and study, which should be two of a col
lege's greatest aims. In this way educktion can be
greatly advanced, and if more schools followed the
steps of Miami, educational advance will be rapid.
Greater overhead expense in Ann Arbor than in
the little city of Detroit is probably the reason milk,
tea, and coffee costs ten cents here -and five cents
in the Wayne county metropolis.
Michigan will have more men out for early foot-
hall training this year than they had candid tes fbr

GROWTH OF TAXATION
Just as the current advance in prices took some
time to spread from the points in the industrial or-
ganization where it first became acute to other rela-
tionships so it is proving true of ,taxation. During
the war the need for increased revenue was first,
felt by the federal government. This necessity was
quickly passed on to the several states in connec-
tion with their war outlays. Then as prices ad-
vanced and the cost of getting work done was in-
creased thre was an additional reason for new
taxation. Finally the cities have had to raise the
pay of teachers and other employes, have had to
expend more for their actual day to day necessities
as labor has advanced in price, and now practically
all over the country are largely adding to their tax
bThisincrease of taxation is of great importance
- because a reduction in public exactions is always
difficult to bring about. Even if there should be a
/ sharp cut in prices it would take a much longer tie
to reduce taxation ccr'espondingly than it did orig-
inally to, increase it. ,1 grades of government when
accustomed to receive inc me of given size are loath
to reduce or relinquish it and when savings have
been made possible through reduction of prices
much prefer to spend the funds in some new way
rather than to cut taxation.
The drift thatis at present going on, therefore, in
municipalties throughout the counry must be re-
garded as tending to establish an approximately
permanent condition, whose effects will be long in
It should be remembered in all munidipal financ-
ing at the present time that every step toward the
enlargement of taxation must be regarded as a last-
ing burden upon property values, and that its effects
will be seen in a continuous and semi-permanent
increase in rentals, which' means in the cost of doing
business-Journal of Commerce.
JAG AND JAZZ
It has been freely prophesied that prohibition will
have a beneficial effect upon the theater, eventually
creating a demand for better kinds of stage enter-
tainment than those concocted for alcoholic patrons.
Some tangible evidence that this really may be the
case is found in a statement just issued by Flo Zieg-
feld in regard to his new "Follies.",
"It is a new kind of 'Follies'," says the famous
iroducer. "I have staged this year's edition as a
well-knit fabric, not merely a series of scenes. To
borrow a term from the silent drama, I have in-
corporated 'continuity.' With the advent of prohibi-
tion the theatergoer is in his seat whe nthe cutrain
goes up. There are few late comers now. More-
over, the folks out front are cold sober. They look
at the stage with steadfast intelligence; there is no
haze of cocktails to blur their vision and judgment.
They are there to be entertained, demanding merit.
The theatergoing public of 1920 and hereafter will
ask for entertainment of solid merit."
That sounds well, anyway. And, whatever MF_
Ziegfeld's entertainment may prove to us, we be-
lieve that his reasoning is sound. The brainless
messes of jazz which have so frequently been served
up to us in the past, conld only, as we have always
felt, appeal to jagged patrons. There is a connec-
tion stronger than alliteration between fag and jazz.
If the producers have comg to a realization 'of the
fact, we can look forward to the theaterical future
with a stronger hope than ever before. Mr. Zieg-
feld's statementis simply another proof of the unal-
terable principle that any betterement of the theater
must begin with the audience.-Ohio State Journal.,
