THE SUMMER MICHIGAN DAILY

br untu~r everywhere who have heard the great
organization, sincerely hope that the
ir ti an v a people of Chicago will not allow their
fine orchestra to be disbanded. A

g the University Summer Session by aohrnm a efud u
Board in Control of Student Public another name can be found, but a
fine orchestra, like a human organism

atches credited to it or not otherwise

If we support zoological parks and
aquariums and things from taxation,
it seems strange that we should sot
totally neglect to support equally
worthwhile and much less costly i
things by taxation also. Chicago, andj
Illinois, of course, need the full mea-
sure of public funds to support the1
public graft,, but nevertheless good
orchestras are too scarce to be lightly
lost, and it might even be worthwhile
to1 forego some of this corruption in
politics if a fine musical organization
could be supported with the proceeds.
After all, Chicago, and the rest of the
nation that appreciates the Chicago
Symphony orchestra, must pay the
piper, however prosaic it may seem;
for without a doubt the members of
that organization deserve a standard
of living at least as high as the mem-
bers of the leading theater orchestras
in the same town.
PRESIDENT COOLIDGE IS
TICTIMI OF HAIRCUT
Due to the fact that The Daily found
it impossible to issue an extra, suit-
able notice should be taken of the fact
that President Coolidge has submit-
ted to a haircut. The great event took
place on the front porch of the lodge
in the Black Hills, and whether it was
enacted for the entertainment of the
women's delegations visiting him
could not be discovered.i
The barber, whose name could not
be learned, is thouglit to have said
that "President Coolidge is the bravest
patient I have ever had. Never dnce,
while severing any of his half dozen
hairs, did I notice a murmer from the
chief executive." It is rumored that
President Coolidgeg also intends to
shave before the summer is over,
though whether this will be made a
public demonstration or not could
not be learned.
At a late hour yesterday it could
not be determined definitely whether
the Coolidge family would drop five
dollars on the collection plate of the
backwoods church which they attend
again or whether the newspaper re-

THE CHICAGO SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA DISBANDS
With the failure of the management
end the musicians of the Chicago Sym-
ihony orchestra to agree on wage ad-
ustments;the organization has dis-
ianded and one of the finest musical
>odies in the United States is lost
hereby. Particularly significant is
his loss to the residents and students
f Ann Arbor, who have been privi-
eged to hear this great orchestra an-
aually for the last 23 years, and for
whose annual May Festival it has
practically always furnished at least
ne program, and in recent years
nore.
Of course the general public can
never undeitand all that goes on be-
hind the scenes of a symphony or-
hestra, and as a rule does not care.
'he dramatic ryhthm of the violin
bows, and the pulsing beat of the di-
ector's baton are all that the ave-
age person can or cares to see. It
eems rather prosaic and almost un-
worthy when into this atmosphere of
Intense emotionalism there enters
something as matter of fact as mu-
icians' union and a wage controver-
sy, as though an orchestra could be
ompared to a plumbers' organization,
and could strike like the United Mine
Workers. It is regrettable, indeed,
.hat such a situation has arisen, and
t is imperative that something be done
f the city of Chicago, and the musi-
al interests that sponsor the orches-
ra, are to retain their great musical
)rganization.
The average person is just as unfa-
niliar with adequate musicians' sala-
ies as he is with the way they play,
3o there can be no very definite pub-
ic feeling on that question either. Of
ourse we all know that they should
iave enough to buy full dress suits
or their concerts, and new strings for
heir violins, and perhaps a bonus in
ddition to enable them to eat from
tine to time-if musicians do eat-
nut as far as being able to judge
whether a violinist is worth $100 a
week or $80 a week, that is far be-
rond our ken.
W can say, however, that the loss of
he Chicago Symphony orchestra,
,rained for years under.the masterful
baton of Frederik Stock, would be a
oss which those who love music, as
Ann Arbor people apparently do love
t, can ill afford. Perhaps it will all
ome out well in the end, if the mu-
ilcians' union can find, as it says, men
who will pay its members $125 a
Week, and retain Stock. The name,
if course, can not be used since the
>resent organization holds that, but
kho cares what the name of the or-
anization happens to be as long as it
s the orchestra of Frederick Stock.
Good orchestras are too scarce to be
ightly lost. It takes years to develop
hem, apparently, and it is only recent-
y that one in our vicinity, the De-
roit Symphony orchestra, has blos-
pimed into anything approaching a
rst rate organization. The respon-
ibility of standing the cost of these
rgaairiztions, however, should not
est upon one man or a small group
f men, as it usually does, but on
re whole large number of citizens
'ho still appreciate the fine and beau-
ful in splite of the influence of moy-

Michigan's mouse hunting expedi-
tion, in the far reaches of the South
Sea Islands, has not been heard from
by Rolls for several days. Interest
comparable to that in the trans-At-
lantic flyers has been manifested in
the expedition, and without a doubt
the nemnbers of the party will emerge
from the jungle with several mice.
It is rumored that many members
of the species exist in the region to
be visited, and the House Cats' Pro-
tective league of the United State and
other countries is helping to sponsor
the enterprise.

ROLLS WILL FINANCE
EXPEDITION SOMEWHERE '
Since practically the whole univer-
sity is . expeditioning this summer,
from the snowy wastes of Greenland,
which are hearing for the first time
the doctrines of militarism, to the
South Sea Islands, it is only fair that
Rolls also should have an expedition,
so plans are underway for the fitting
out of same. According to announce-
ments made in authoritative circules
nothing lavish wil be attempted this
first year, due to lack of popular in-
terest, though unstinted publicity will
be accorded to same, as befits an ex-
pedition.
Funds wil be raised by the same
methods as the Fresh Air Camp uses,
and then the expedition will surely
lack financial backing.
ROLLS SCENARIO CONTEST
WINNER NOT ANNOUNCED
The winner of the Rolls movie
seenario writing contest has not been
announced as yet, it is rumored in
several quarters on the campus. The
three cheese sandwiches are becoming
rather defunct, but they will be
awarded as prizes anyway. The large
response received has made the task
oft judging exceedingly difficult.

HENRY FORD DOES NOT RETRACT
ANY OTHER STATEMENTS
Nothing more has been retracted by
Mr. Ford, well known auto magnate
and alumnus of the University since
last week. It is rumored that the
testimonial banquet to the Rabbis' as-
sociation was not given as scheduled.

PRESIDENT COOLIDGE
LIKEWISE RETRACTS NOTHING
Mt. Calvin Coolidge, well known
public figure and of late a cowboy,
has retracted nothing likewise. No
' reason was given by the Black Hills
spokesman, except that he has never
said anything.
The following is the latest Rolls
telephoto of President Coolidge:

porters would not be around. For the
benefit of those few of our readers
who have not followed carefully the
actions of the chief executive since he
started west, we should perhaps sum-
marize briefly his activities. First, of
course, the boy scouts presented him
with sever l things, then the state
legislature renamed a mountain or
two after him, and recently he has
worn a ten-gallon hat (looking notably
like a real cowboy under it), and had
his hair cut. Of course in addition
he is reputed to have caught the
usual fish or two, and the Women's
party has just visited him, though for
that he deserves sympathy rather than
praise.
All in all our president seems to be
having an excellent summer, and with
the aid of the faithful news agencies
we can keep track of the presidential
dandruff as well as though he were
right -in Washington.
MINNESOTA LOSES
When Benny Oosterbaan scooped up
a fumble in the closing moments of
the Michigan-Minnesota football game
last fall it started the far north state
on a downward path from which it has
apparently never completely recov-
ered. So it is, without any astonish-
ment at all that read that Minnesota
has relinquished the crown in an
even more worthwhile endeavor, and
has failed to raise as much domestic
cabbage for the manufacture of saur-
kraut as the more sophisticated state
of New York.
Such ignomy for the home state of
the Swedes is almost inconceivable.

STUDENTS SEEN STUDYING
ON CAMPUS
Staff members of the Building and
Grounds department were busying
themselves yesterday with a frantic
search for a student who was rumored
to be studying. If found he will im-
mediately be confined in the psycho-
pathic hospital.
"One of the most pitiful cases I
have ever encountered," said the head
of thA B. & G. department, "Is a stu-
dent who studied last summer. .He
seemed to be possessed of the obses-
sion that one was supposed to study
in order to pass courses in Sununer
school, but after we removed him from
all books for three weeks he recovered
and passed the courses he was taking."
In the winter time such cases sel-
dom come to the attention of the Uni-
versity authorities, but in the last
few years several instances of this
kind of illusion has come to the notice
of the faculty, during the summer.

Surely and swiftly the preference

ber and frequency of night clubs and
I bootleggers would not be so bad, but
when the Empire state attacks them
on their own ground and still defeats
them the shame is almost too great to
bear. It is only a matter of a few
hundred acres of cabbage; still it is
just as good as- an overwhelming vic-
tory, for the United States department
of agriculture, seeking no .doubt to ag-
gravate the chagrin of Minnesota, has
broadcast the news afar and wide.
There is some consolation, of course,
in the fact that the world's champion
coffee drinker is a native Minnesotan,
and that New York, with all its pre-
cocious drinkers, can't approach the
record of some 68 quarts or cups or
something that this mighty Minne-
sotan has hung up. The system of

things is essentially just, however, and
no doubt the same cruel providence
that took from Minnesota the cabbage
raising championship will reward the
state many times over in some other
line. After all the manufacture of
flour is also quite important, and
New York just doesn't approach the
class of the home of the Vikings when
it comes to that.
