In compliance with Pres. Harry B.
Hutchins wishes that Pres. Wilson's
neutrality proclomation be adhered to,
the Russian program of the Cosmo-
politan Club was changd and no men-
tion of the European war was made in
the meeting Friday night.
Leonard B. Moiseyeff, who had plan-
ned a talk about the effects of the
war on the Russian people, confined
his address merely, to the life of the
Russian people and Russian art, liter-
ature and culture. Mr. Moiseyeff is a
native of Russia, but his sympathies
are with the common people and not
with the bureaucratic government of
the Czar..
Prof. C. L. Meader who had been an-

posed and unable to speak at the meet-
Pres. W. C. Achi of the Cosmopolitan
Club, in his introductory speech out-
lined the purposes of the club. "The
aim of the club," he said, "is to bring
the students from all foreign nations
together, and to create a spirit of good
fellowship among them." Pres. Achi
pointed out the motto for which the
club stands, which is: "Above All
Nations is Humanity." He closed
with an appeal for funds to aid the
American Red Cross Society. After
the meeting a collection was taken for
the Red Cross.

Grim, forceful, pathetic glimpses of
the life of Irish fisherfolk make up a
story which is reputed to be the
strongest tragedy of recent years.
Elemental forces and primal emotions
are the stuff from which it is wrought.
There is something startling about
every line, but it Is humanly crude-
and effective. The characters are
dynamic, and the reader feels that they
are in closer communion with Nature
than he, despite their superstitions.
One secret of the play's power lies'
in its combination 'of sympathy and
relentlessness. Mother love is relieved
against the utter hopelessness of
struggling against the cruelty of the
sea. Guests of naked power make
almost too strong -a contrast for the
over-powered element of kindliness.
Perhaps the most striking part of
the story is the change which takes
place; ,in the mother's heart. She is
not represented even at the begin-
ning as over-confident in a 'force which
had robbed her of almost everything.
But' the contrast at the end is over-
whelming.' The reader is shocked
when he knows that all the emotions of
motherhood give way to 'relief, when
the woman finds that she has no more
sons to lose.

Prof. Walter Rauschenbusch, of
Rochester Theological Seminary, who
will lecture on "The Challenge of
Social Problems to College Men and
Women" at the Methodist church, 7:30
o'clock this evening, is perhaps the
foremost exponent of applying Chris-
tianity to social questions. His two
books, "Christianizing the Social Or-
der" and "The Church and the Social
l Crisis," have created a furore in the
religious world.

Prof. Van Tyne Returns From Scene
of Terrible Struggle
Now Engaging
Prof. C. H. Van Tyne, of the Amer-
ican history department, who has re-
cently returned from Europe, tells of
some very interesting experiences
while there.
Professor Van Tyne spent most of
his time in France, doing research
work in American history, in the For-
eign Archives in Paris. While in
France, Professor Van Tyne gave the
Harvard Foundation lectures in eight
different provincial universities. This
took about seven weeks, as he gave
three lectures in each institution. In
these provincial universities, one finds
some. of the most learned men of
Franee, among whom are Jules Le-
gras, and Anatole Lebraz.
Concerning the present war situa-
tion, Professor Van Tyne said that
the great impressiongained by him was
that France did not want war, and that
she would do anything to avert it.
Everyone with whom I talked," said
Professor Van Tyne, "was opposed to
the idea of war, and they said that the
French people would not go to war
for the purpose of avenging the loss
of Alsace and Lorraine, but if, by any
chance, they should be drawn into
a conflict with Germany, they would,
of course, try to recover their lost
possessions." The wonderful way in
which the French have conducted
themselves since the outbreak of the
war is very creditable to them, and is
a remarkable demonstrative of their
coolness, deliberation, and solemn de-
votion. Professor Van Tyne said that
he was much interested in the sobriety
and seriousness of conversation on his
visits in university groups, there be-
ing no frivolous and idle talk which
is usually attributed to the French-
man. He said that he went to France
rather preudiced against the people
there, but came away with a very high
opinion of them.
Two weeks before war was declared,
Professor Van Tyne saw the review
of the English fleet of 492 ships, in-
cluding submarines and superdread-
noughts, and said that it was one of
the most stupendous sights that he
had ever witnessed. Professor Van
Tyne was in England when war broke
out, and he said that it was interest-
ing to see the English people waking
up to the fact that they were engaged
in the greatest war in which they had
ever taken part. It took England
about two weeks to recognize this fact,
but when she finally did, she was equal
to the occasion. He said that as he
went about in England, he was struck
with the preparations for war. Sol-
diers drilling on, the commons in the
different cities, maneuvers in the var-
Ious camps, roaring of guns on battle-
ships in the English channel, subma-
rines going to and fro in the harbors,
and Zeppelins hovering in the air,
indicated the preparations for the con-
flict. In order that aeroplanes could
not tell over which part of the city
they were flying, the lights in London
were changed every night. One night,
one part of the city would be brilliant-
ly illuminated, and on the next night
some other part would be, brightened.
Professor Van Tyne said that if
there is anything that this war has
demonstrated to the world, it is that

great armaments do not secure peace,
and only make war that much more
terrible. This is proved by the state-
ment that more men have already been
killed in the present war, than have
died in all the wars together in the
past 100 years.
Word was received Friday by
President-Emeritus James B. Angell
to the effect that his grandson David
McLaughin, son of Prof. Andrew Mc-
Laughin of Chicago University, was
able to take nourishment on Thurs-
day, and that his temperature was
slightly lower. McLaughin was ser-
iously injured last summer while driv-
ing and has suffered paralysis from
his waist down ever since.
The Catholic Students' club held
their first meeting of this year Friday
evening with an attendance of 250
members. A committee has been ap-
pointed to draw up a new constitution,
which will be read at the next meet-
ing to be held on Sunday evening,
October 18. The election of officers
will take place at that time.
