SAPS SUBSTITUTION IDEA
PATRIOTISM NO EXCUSE FOR
WOMEN IN OPERA; OWN GOOD
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Sunday's Daily noted the honor con-
ferred on Michigan women. For the
first time they are to assume the fem-
inine -roles in the Union opera. Yeti
it is specifically stated that "the prac-
tice of allowing women to participate
in the opera may extend only for the
duration of the war."
This provokes a question-- when
have Michigan women sought this
privilege? Why let down the bars
of exclusion even during thetwar?
It is the same old story. When it is
quite beyond man's power to accom-
plish a desired end alone, he confers
a rare privilege upon woman, the
privilege of helping him, always re-
serving to himself the power to recall
this privilege when he will have re-
gained his bearings.
But the favor conferred is worthy of
depconsideration. Women of Mich-
igan, think what participation in the
opera will mean to us. Those in a
position to judge the Junior Girls'
play of 1917 acknowledged its sup-
eriority to the opera, its only draw-
back being the lack of facilities for
elaborate staging. Now, since the Un-
ion announces that we may participate
in their opera, the question arises as
to where our responsibility lies. Both
are March dramatics. Have we enough
of first class talent for both? Or will
participation in the opera drain wom-
en's dramatics of their best actresses?
Since we may not participate in the
future, we shall be merely substitutes.
Nor can they offer the excuse that we
are performing a patriotic service.
knowing that much talent has been
sacrificed to war, the Union will not
be criticised for not producing an all-
So let us be undeceived. This ser-
vice is not for Michigan nor for pat-
riotism. Let the men present "Let's,
Go," and let us reserve our talent for
our own dramatics, which must not be
