New NewsreelBrings Back^Tost World^^ Shift Dance DateTo January 7;Greeks ProtestThe resurrection of the CampusNewsreel as a new student organiza¬tion under the title of “UniversityNewsreel Productions’’ has finallybeen effected. Discontinued this quar¬ter when it found itself with no oneto direct or produce it, the Newsreelwill now be headed by Gordon Arnett,director, Doris Wigger, publicity andWilliam Boehner as business man¬ager.Inaugurated two years ago in thefall of 1936 by Paul Wagner, theNewsreel became a clearing house ofstudent activity with pictures of everyimportant campus event during theschool year. Last year, though it ap¬peared each quarter, it lacked anadequate staff and sufficient resources.Director Leaves SchoolLast June, Dave Radin was ap¬pointed Director for this year butwhen he transferred to U.C.L.A. totake up cinematography in earnest,the Newsreel was without a sponsor.Wagner, to whom it naturally re¬verted was busily occupied with a U-High teaching position in addition totaking pictures for Pulse. As a result,the new cinema association was or¬ganized.The first duty of the organizationwill be to raise funds for equipmentby producing a series of revivals ofmotion picture favorites, the first tobe “The Lost World’’ by A. ConanDoyle starring Bessie Love, LewisStone, Wallace Beery, and Lloyd iHughes. The picture will be shown iThursday afternoon at 3:30 in Mandel IHall and evening at 7:30 in Kent jTheater. The association will attempt, iby canvassing its audiences, to revivethose pictures which the majority ofstudents desire. I Council Moves Ball toWinter Quarter, SuitableBands Unavailable.Postponement of the Interfrater¬nity Ball to January 7 was an¬nounced Friday by the Interfrater¬nity Committee. Opposition to thechange has arisen in fraternity andclub circles because the WashingtonProm, Interclub Ball, Skull and Cres¬cent formal, most fraternity formals,fraternity and club rushing, and pre¬parations for Mirror are all sched¬uled for the Winter quarter.The Ball has been traditionallyheld on Thanksgiving Eve since itwas organized in the 1920’s. The rea¬son given by the Committee forchanging the date is that it was un¬able to hire a good orchestra.One of the principal reasons theywere unable to secure a satisfactoryorchestra for the Ball was, accord¬ing to Ball chairman Bob Jones, thefact they got started too late in mak¬ing the arrangements. He suggestedthat in the future the chairman forthe Ball be chosen in the spring sothat details could be settled duringthe summer.Complications started when Jones,signed an exclusive contract with abooking agency to secure an orchestrawhen he thought the contract wasoptional.The agency found that all the goodbands except Jimmy Greer were al¬ready booked and the fraternitiesagreed to take Jimmy Greer at aprice of two dollars per capita. WhenGreer announced he was unable totake the engagement. Grant Adamsand John Wiggins, representing thethe Consolidated Broadcasting Com¬pany, offered the Committee itschoice of Paul Whiteman or Fletcher \Henderson.Because Whiteman’s contract withNBC stipulates that he must play(Continued on page 2)Stage Torchlight Parade forCandidate James Weber LinnBar AssociationElects MembersAs a result of Friday’s electionthere are twelve new members on theLaw School Bar Association Council.These new members are: RobertHummel, Philip Lawrence and PaulRothchild, first year new plan repre¬sentatives; Joseph Andalman, FrancisSeiter, and Frances Brown, secondyear old plan; Byron Kabot, JeromeKatzin, and David Scheffer, secondyear new plan; John Clark, IrvingFeiger and Mary Shaw, senior class.The Bar Association directs theactivities of the recreation room inthe Law School basement and spon¬sors meetings and discussions atwhich prominent lawyers and judgesspeak.FRIARS MEETSophomore managers of 1938 Black-friars’ “Where in the World’’ willmeet with officers of the order tomor¬row at 2:30 at the Friars office.

In the olddays, committeemen had diffi¬culties with booking agents, lostchances at excellent bands, andbeautiful ballrooms, but still thedance was held. This year, thatstronghold of tradition, the In¬terfraternity Committee, itselflet down the bars and called offthe traditionally pre-Thanksgiv-ing I-F ball.The ball will be held this yearnot as the bright spot in a col¬orless fall social season, but asan anti-climax to Christmasvacation festivities. The unbal¬ancing of the social schedule isof no crucial importance, nei¬ther is the simple fact of chang¬ing the date of the ball, but themethods used by the committeein taking the action deserve tobe condemned by every frater¬nity man.For the committee, whichconsiders the price of ball tick¬ets so important that it mustconsult every fraternity for ap¬proval, apparently doesn’t thinkthat a radical change in the dateof the dance is of enough mo¬ment to call for a vote of all thecampus chapters. Therefore italone made the decision to post¬pone the dance until January,and then calmly notified frater¬nities without explaining whythe action had been taken.' Maybe the committee hasgood reason for calling off theNovember 23 date. After all,they wanted to make the danceas successful as possible, andfelt that an affair with theprestige of the I-F ball deservedthe best of bands.Maybe the committee wasn’tto blame for the failure to getone of the two good bands theyhad a chance to hire. After all.Bob Jones meant well, but wasso rushed by the fact of his lateappointment and the difficultyof getting any good bands forThanksgiving eve that hecouldn’t be expected to noticethe faulty contract with hisagent. College students'are no¬toriously babes in the woodswhen it comes to dealings withbooking agents, who aren’tknown for altruism. No, BobJones isn’t to blame.Well then, what is the mat¬ter? Principally thoughtlessnesson the part of the five men onthe committee. They assumedthat everyone would intuitivelyshare all their ideas on thequestion of holding the dancewithout a good band. Thought¬lessness, but it looks dictatorialto the fraternities. Some of Once again the athletic de¬partment has been charged withpenuriousness. This time it isthe freshman football playerswho are complaining; theyclaim that they are being forcedto play with sub-standard e-equipment, thus exposing them¬selves to serious injuries andreceiving more bodily punish¬ment than is necessary.Mr. Metcalf has replied thatthe fault is with the players.Were they to ask for new andbetter equipment at the cagethey would be given it. Theplayers deny this, saying theyI are merely given the opportu¬nity to exchange one poor pieceI of equipment for another,j The Daily Maroon, in expos-jing the dissatisfaction, has notI taken sides. However, whenj freshmen football players feelI their equipment is not up tothat which they were furnishedin high school, it is time for theadministration to take stock ofthe situation.Both Mr. Metcalf and CoachNorgren have promised to in¬vestigate. Whether it will be areal attempt to ameliorate con¬ditions or merely an attempt topacify cannot be foretold.In any case, the Universityshould not expect men to ex¬pose themselves needlessly toinjury merely because of adepleted budget. If, after the in¬vestigation, the complaints ofpoor equipment continue, the of¬ficials of the athletic depart¬ment may expect to hear theorganized protest of the studentbody.Today on theQuadranglesLECTURESAvukah, Rabbi Morton M.

Board of Control,The Daily Maroon:I know that I speak not only forthe majority of the Sigma Chi’s, butthat I speak for the majority of myfriends in other fraternities when Isay that I do not understand the post¬ponement of the I-F Ball and am ac¬tively opposed to it unless some veryplausible statement is made as to whyit was postponed.Ever since my freshman year Ihave had the tradition—ThanksgivingEve, the I-F Ball—impressed uponme, and now that too is to join thelong list of lost Chicago traditions.It hardly seems possible that any oneas closely connected with the sociallife of the University as* the I-F Com¬mittee would so readily postpone theone outstanding formal of the Fallquarter. Rumors are rampant that itis due to the negligence and ineffi¬ciency of the committee in charge ofthe Ball. If this is not tke case every¬one would appreciate learning thetrue facts, for silence on the part ofthe committee can only leave us todraw our own conclusions.P. F. I-F Ball-(Cotinued from page 1)Dancers Cooperate for college dances whenever possiblethe Committee would only have hadto pay his train expenses to and fromNew York, which amounted to $1500,or $3.60 per man. Henderson couldhave been obtained for $450.Jones thought that Whiteman wastoo expensive and said so, but thematter was put up to the fraterni¬ties, w’hich decided to take Whitemananyway. Jones told Consolidated theywanted Whiteman, not Henderson,but Consolidated had already madeanother booking for Whiteman. How¬ever, Consolidated, thinking theyI might be able to get Whiteman any-I way because the other dance was nota college function started negotia¬tions, in the meantime booking Hen¬derson for another occasion. At thispoint the original agency, with whichJones had signed the blanket con¬tract, stepped in and demanded a cut,as was its legal right. Consolidatedrefused to split the five per centcommission if it did get Whiteman,and dropped the matter entirely.The Committee then found itselfwithout a single good orchestra insight, and, rather than take orches¬tras like Frankie Masters’ or BernieCummins’, w’hich were available,looked over the possible dates and de¬cided to call the whole thing off un¬til January, when all the big handsare available.In line with the ASU TheatreGroup’s attempts to democratize thecampus dramatic efforts, productionmanager Demarest Polacheck an¬nounced today that the dancers work¬ing at Ida Noyes Hall under the direc¬tion of Miss Theodora Weisner willwork in cooperation with the group intheir fall production. Jones ended his explanation bysaying that if the fraternities stillwanted very much to have the Ballon November 23 with a poor orches-I tra, the date could again be changed.The dancers will participate active4Macfly in the staging of Archibald1 Leish’s work, “The Fall of the City.f'NO JUICES REACH MY MOUTHTHEY CANT GET BY THE FILTER INNEW SHAPES A FINISHES iwMEDICOMackay and ApostleWin Horseshoe TitleWalter Mackay and “Ace” Apostlewere the winners in the finals of thedoubles horseshoe-pitching tourna¬ment,Joe Andalman and “Ringer” Gran-dahl, the losers, were very much inthe running right up to the end, andextended the victors to three gamesbefore they finally lost 21-9, 20-21,21-15.Mackay and Apostle were leading20-15 in the second game, whenGrandahl pulled the game out of the jfire by making two ringers in a row jto win the game. j H«nc«, no oxpoctoration.

Post Saipts, f-Page Four THE DAILY MAROON, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1938Fifth RowCenter* * *By DAVID GRENE{The Daily Maroon’s new dramaticcritic is David Grene, one of the bet¬ter-liked professors among under¬graduates by virtue of his being anative of Dublin, not yet 30 yearsof age, and an authority in every¬thing Greek ... Ed.)John Steinbeck wrote Of Mice andMen as a novel and afterwards, atthe request of his friends, did thenecessary transformation into thepresent dramatic form. The novel it¬self had been almost exclusively dia¬logue, and very little had to be addedand still less taken away to make apowerful novel into a fine and sensi¬tive tragedy. Only the very scantydescriptions of the bunkhouse in theCalifornian ranch and the melancholy,taut cry of the marsh-birds are ex¬cised from the script. They are morethan adequately replaced by the beau¬tiful settings of Donald Oenslagerand the brilliant bird-calls ofClarence Straight.* * *The play has one theme—the desireof all men to have something to loveand the desire which they also havefor some means of support which issecurely theirs. Hence the tale ofGeorge and Lennie who travel to¬gether from ranch to ranch as “bindlestiffs”. Lennie is a gigantic moron,or “not very bright, but a hell of afine worker,” as George tells the boss,and the relation between him andGeorge is the most poignant illustra¬tion of Steinbeck’s central themeIt is a very delicate matter, this, andwith a shade less natural understand¬ing than Steinbeck possesses, or ashade less thoughtful acting than thatof Robertson and Andrews, the wholemight have become coarse and repel¬lent. The pitiful dependence of thisweak-witted giant on his friend, thesad little manifestations of his feeble¬mindedness—his passion for “pettingsoft things which always died becausethey were so little”—might have beendisgusting. But Steinbeck and his ac¬tors have held the balance perfectlyand tne play is instinct with real pityand comprehension of human weak¬ness.In particular to be commended is theexquisite symmetry with which thetheme, the love every man would haveand the security which is coveted byall whose bread depends on another’sgood will, is repeated at intervalsthroughout the play in differentforms. For, as Lennie is to George,the poor moron dependent whose af¬fection makes the difference betweenGeorge and “the other guys, who ain’tgot no stake and no one gives a hbotin hell about them,” so is the old sickdog to the crippled Candy, and asCandy is stricken by the cruel needof having his dog shot, so the samecruel need forces George to kill hishalf-wit companion. And throughoutthe whole play, in the conversation ofthe bunkhouse, amongst these menwho “haven’t anything much privateleft in the world save where theycame from and where they are goingto,” and in George and Candy’s pit¬eous anxiety to get their little patchof land where they will see growingthe fruit of the seed they plant, wehave the second strand of which theplot is woven—the need of man foreconomic security.The acting is exceptionally good.It is ungracious to comment thatAndrews was not quite so convincingin his presentation as the New YorkLennie, for he is as near perfectionas makes no matter. Perhaps his ac¬ting might have been a little moreimplicit. There was a helpless lump¬ishness about the New York Lenniewhich one felt rather than saw. Rob¬ertson was excellent as George. Hisdeep love for his friend,* seasonedwith the irritation bred of that love,was brilliantly rendered, and there isa smoldering fire and an inarticulatelove of beauty in his conception of theSteinbeck character which argue deepcomprehension of the part he plays.The other players are relatively sat¬isfactory with two exceptions. Crooks,the negro stable-buck, is to be con¬gratulated on one of the finest andmost moving pieces of acting in theentire play, on the other hand, thereis Miss Claire Luce, whose star cast¬ing and publicity do not compe.isa..efor her lamentable performance. Thisactress apparently does not under¬stand the character she is supposedto play, nor does she seem remark¬ably well equipped to present any roleinvolving greater subtlety than thatrequired by the late Florenz Ziegfield.Altogether, a noble play, fine set¬tings, and an excellent cast! I Campus CongressDiscusses NewSocial CommitteeThe Campus Congress will discussat their next meeting the possibilityof setting up a Federated SocialCommittee to replace the present Stu¬dent Social Committee. This step wasendorsed by the resolutions sessionof the Congress held last year. Themeeting will be at 3:30 Thursday inCobb 309.According to tentative plans, theSocial Committee would consist ofone delegate from each organizationon campus and a small executive com¬mittee either to be elected by the dele¬gates or appointed by the Dean’s office.According to the advocates of thisplan, it is in no sense an attack on thepresent Student Social Committee,which they acclaim as one of the mostefficient ever, but merely a move tomake the Committee more represen¬tative and democratic. At present thecommittee designates its own succes¬sors.The Daily Maroon is supportingthe innovation editorially, and Em¬mett Deadman will speak in its be¬half at the Congress. Harry Deck^ LaborLeader^ SpeaksTo ASU on ElectionMembers of the American StudentUnion and other interested studentswill hear Harry Deck, secretary ofLabor’s Non-Partisan League, speakon the League’s stand concerningcampaign issues tomorrow at 3:30in Social Science 122. He will discussthe League’s recommendations ofcandidates for next week’s generalelection and explain the League’s rea¬sons for approving them.Deck was secretary for Represen¬tative Keller of the 25th Congres¬sional district from 1932 to 1937, atwhich time he became a national or¬ganizer for the CIO affiliate, theUnited Federal Workers, union ofgovernment employees. In March,1938, he left the union to become sec¬retary o f Labor’s N o n-PartisanLeague of Cook County. It was underhis direction that the League has be¬come such an influential organizationamong the Labor unions and progres¬sive groups of the city.Labor’s Non-Partisan Leaguew a s founded during the 1936election campaign in order to informthe public as to the true caliber ofpolitical candidates.

TheMaroon’s contest of contests which ranFriday’s “Daily Mistake” was a hotbed of controversy, and even the edi¬tors didn’t know who the people were.Meanwhile the controversy overthe picture titled Joseph Stalin wagedhot and fast. It seemed that the manhad, not a dual, but a quadruple per¬sonality. Contestants claimed that hewas no less than four people. Rocke¬ feller, Judson, Burton, and, last butnot least, a janitor. The Alumni Officewrote Rockefeller on the back of thecut and considered the matter settledThen Fuqua, favorite Beta alumnusand author of Blackfriars’ best showto date “Plastered in Paris,” appearedon the scene to identify the unknownas Tom Eck, track coach, and former¬ly World’s Champion Bicycle Rider.In reward for his genius.
