field of art, and an American concern
has offered a prize of $10,000 to the
person who can complete Shubert's
unfinished symphony.
To the more artistically minded the
announcement will come as revolting
sacrilege, and perhaps a society of
these persons will be formed for the
defense of the great epic of music.
What an American composer at his
best could do to that masterful sym-
phony is horrible to conceive, and
what may happen if the prize should
fall to some jazz artist becomes so1
pathetic as to be luricrous. The whole
situation contains a note of the dram-
atic, however, which is rather match-
less and striking; it multiplies the
overwhelming tragedy of Shubert's
life with the grim irony that $10,000
should be offered merely for an at-
tempted conclusion to his unfinished
What the poor, half strayed, strug-
gling composer could have done with
this vast sum of money is grim to
contemplate. If Shubert had known,
in his humble quarters, that some day
there would be offered more money
than he or half of the rich persons
of Vienna had ever seen in their life-
times, just for a conclusion to one
of his compositions, the great artist
would probably have fainted in his
chair, and pricked himself to see if
he wasconscious. He would no doubt
have staged an immediate feast for all
hiis fellow composers, and celebrated
the sudden acquisition of tremendous
wealth with suitable rites. Maybe he
would have been inspired to a great
epic composition-the Dollar Sym-
phony-which he would have finished,
and thereby American commercialism
could have achieved another victory.
But Shubert is gone. Not all the
wealth of Croesus or the billions that
America can offer will be able to bring
him back, and the unfinished sym-~
phony is unfinished and will remain
unfinished, because Shubert can
never be resurrected to complete it.
The great heart andtthe vibrating soul
that conceived that great piece of
music have ceased to beat, annd Shu-
bert only lives in the pathos and
heartache of the symphonies he com-
posed. To attempt to complete by a
less sacred hand thistcomposition, that
must needs defy all but the hand of
Shubert himself for completion, is
ridiculous and absurd, and an insult
to the supposed intelligence of the
American people. There are some
things $10,000 can buy, such as a first
rate movie scenario or a slushy pop-
ular piece of musig bUt there a
other things that $10,000 can not buy,
and the master hand of the great
genius S'hubert is one of them. We
might as well try to nickle plate the
pyramids, or whitewash Mt. Blanc, as
to try to complete that which Shubert
himself could not complete. And just
as surely as there will never be an-
other Shubert the Unfinished Sym-
phony will not be ccompleted, and
there will not be another Unfinished
Symphony, 10,000 American dollars to
the contrary notwithstanding.

is men like Lowman who will standI
behind their enforcement officers
when they shoot a bootlegger and
tenderly discharge the officers from
the force for undue rigidity. America
can expect a period of very wholesome
enforcement, the first step of which
will be to replace the dangerous
weapons of the enforcement officers
with pea shooters and pop guns in
order to render them harmless.

To the Editor:
With the exception of the comment
published in The Daily years ago fol-
lowing Northwestern's defeat of Michi-
gan in football, the Summer Daily this
year has published the best editorials
written by students the Michigan
campus has seen since the spring of
1923 when the unmentionable G. D
Eaton's "Tempest" raged.
The editors of the 1927 Summer
Daily are to be congratulated on the
uniform excellence of the editorial
page. Your comments, as in the case
of the one on Dean Clark, are occas-
ionally unjust, and formed with too
little consideration, but at least they
are sprightly pertinent, and free from1
the lethargic results of an over-use of
the rubber stamp.
Particularly to be commended are
your criticisms of the obsecenities
perpetrated by the czars of the cin-
ema, the mandarins of the motion pic-
ture. The monopolies done away with
by the Sherman Anti-Trust act at least
offered the people 'of the country de-
pendable products, but the monopoly
existing at present in the amusement
field has put on the market entertain-
ment that is cheap, tawdry and dis-
gusting, and has attempted to drive
I away worth while attractions of the
spoken stage.
The Summer Daily's editors, in their
successful efforts to publish a reason-
able and intelligent newspaper, have,
I am sure, received slight encourage-
ment and less praise. The apathy of
the elderly grade-getting, degree-chas-
ing summer student, his or her indiff-
,erence to such campus activities as are
continued during the summer session,
is well known. And the purpose of
this letter is to call to the attention
of these benighted souls the fact that
not all he worth-while things at Mich-
igan are accomplished in the class
.A W.IR.B. '26.

The prisoners when arraigned
showed a marked "Consciousness of
Guilt," the prosecuting attorney
states. The fact thamt they are both
literate and familiar with the courts
of law precludes any possibility of
this "consciousness" being attributed
t: fear, as was so successfully claim-
ed recently in the Sacco-Vauzetti

At the last, moment a confession
has cleared Thayer and Fuller of all
guilt in the crime. They will be ex-
ecuted for the murder anyway, it was
anounced, because that is the way
that things are done in the Massa-
chusetts courts. The man who con-
fessed will also be executed. This
will remove possible embarrassment.
Several inmates of the Massachu-
setts insane asylum reported seeing
witches recently. The inmates have
been appointed as an impartial com-
mittee by Governor Fuller to investi-
gate and report to Governor Fuller.
It is regarded as certain that the com-
mittee of insane will agree with the
* * *
Massachusetts has decided to set-
tle the crime problem for once and
all be executing immediately all non-
Republicans in the state. Unortho-
dox persons politically constitute a
real menace to society, it is reasoned.
This is how the United States was
started, for instance, by such unor-
thodoxy. The proposal has the com-
plete concurrence of Governor Ful-
ler, and the execution fo all non-Re-
publicans will begin August 10 and
last until it reaches the lower strata
of society, when Governor Fuller will
also feel the axe.
Where is the spirit that staged the
Boston tea party, manned Bunker
Hill, and blocked the road to Con-
Awaiting execution in the Massa-
chusetts state penitentiary.

Camels add* the charm of living

WHETHER through the tasks of
every day, or in life's moments of
crisis and great reward, the com-
fort and understanding of Camel
cheers us on our way. For no other
cigarette was ever so friendly, so
loyal as Camel. The unfathomed

quality of Camel tobaccos is

grown. The kind of blending that
only such a group of experts could
give. Regardless of what you are
willing to pay, there is no other
cigarette like Camel; there can be
no better cigarette made than
Camels. Camels never tire the
taste, no matter how indefatigably
you smoke them, never leave a
cigaretty after-taste.
If you don't yet know Camel
enjoyment, just sample the most
exquisite fragrance that ever came
from a cigarette. Have a Camel!
