Aitacks Sirit of Archibald FR A N
Terms It Pro-German
In a recent communication to The
New York Times written by Prof. W.
iI. Hobbs, of the geology department,
strong censure was applied to the war
lecture given here some weeks ago by
James F. J. Archibald.
Professor Hobbs states that the Pol-
ish relief commission of Ann Arbor,
which was instrumental in arranging
the lecture, advertised that it would be
neutral in spirit, and was extended
free use of Hill auditorium under that
condition. The favorable terms offer-
ed by the lecturer aroused some sus-
picion on the part of the local author-
ities and especial precautions were
taken to investigate the nature of the
lecture. Every assurance of its neu-
tral position was extended by both the
local commission and the lecturer him-
The pictures shown by Mr. Archi-
ald in connection with his talk though
interesting, according to Professor
Hobbs indicated a clever selection to
set forth the German view-point. They
did not indicate that Mr. Archibald
had seen any of the horror scenes of
the war, and only depicted the chival-
ric spirit of the German soldier as he
shared his comforts with the Belgian ;
The motion pictures while excellent
in themselves did not meet with the
approval that the lecturer expected,
and when the scene which showed the
Kaiser reviewing his troops did not +$50 P & u
wring cheers from the audience, Mr.
Archibald halted to state that at Wash-
ingtonl, and West Point the Kaiser was
greeted with applause.
"It may be stated," said Professor
Hobbs, "that the lecture could only be
described as strongly pro-German.
Statements were repeatedly made1
of known fact, or else present the
extreme German viewpoint. Such a OS STEM
lecture, with its professed neutrality, O

at absolutely will not bite the tongue. Since then
aitators have sprung up, and after having failed to
eal the famous "Tuxedo Process" have put out
'ocesses which they claim are "just as good.".

The Perfcc Tobacco for Pipe and Cgarette

Jackson isn't such a mean town af-
ter all. Nice town. Purty aid ev-
Once a feller went there: Not so
purty and everything, but he was a
cdllege guy, a Ann Arbor College guy.
He went there to a dance. (This would
be a swell place to use asterisks, be-
cause we aren't going to tell what a
perfectly gorge and delish time he
had at the dance. Suffice to remark,
it was a dilly affair and he -said
some weeks later when his feet got
well, that it was magnif.)
The affair was the Cotton Ball.
They have a Cotton Bali every year in
Jackson. It's grand and ultra, and
peachy people go to it. Just to give
our 89,000 readers a idea how society
it is, the street on which the ball
was held, or rather the street on which
the building within which tihe ball
took place-well, anyway, that street
was lined for nine miles with motor
cars and Fords and jitney busses and
things. And the men got stuck for--
that is to say, the women wore beauti-
ful corsage boquets at their lovely
slim waists.
Now let's talk about Rus Dean. Oh,
he didn't go to the Cotton Ball. His
social duties confine him to Ann Ar-
bor. That isn't the point at all. (Cho-
rus of 89,000 voices: Well, what in
Sam Hill is the point?) This is, folks,
this is: The Ann Arbor College guy
told Rus all about the Cotton Ball.
Rus listened, eyes glowing, and a
beautiful pink suffusing his cameo
countenance. His 68 pounds cf pep
and energy limbered up. He made up
his mind to put over the one party
which would put cotton in the diction-
ary. And once bus makes up 'his
mind, he won't stop for tea shops or
anything. He hustles. Y'see, lie's
General Chairman of the Michigaim
Union dance committee.
Rus walked into the office of Mr.
Koontz, President of the Union, and

blithely chirped:
"We're going to have a Cotton Ball."
"That so?" asked Mr. Koontz.
"Yeh," answered Rus, and strolled
out. le visited Homer heath in his
office and told homer the same thing.
"That'll be nice," said hormer. "Have
a good time."
Denny Donovan, god of chicken
croquettes, was standing nearby.
"If I may make so bold," said Den-
ny, "might I enquire just what is a
Cotton Ball, Mr. Dean?"
"It would b- a lpleasuire to eilighten
you," rnepied the courteous Ml'. Dean.
And he began to enlight:
"The irst Annual Cotton ll of
the niversity of Michigan Uion,"
Rus briskly said, "will be an evnit in
society circles that will be remewber-
ed for all tinme. The idea of Cotton
Balls brims with summer, white lan-
nels, gingham trocks and the like. It

-but hevings, you don't expect nue
to describe that part of it, do you?
They just come in what corresponds to
the attire of the men. Get the idea?"
But by this time Homer was calling
up his wife to see if she'd care to go,
and Mr. Koontz was figuring on the
back of an euvelole. Denny was run-
ning his fingers through his hair and
talking to himself. The party was

This "Tuxedo Process" i3 the oal and best
process for removing all irritation from the natural
tobacco leaf. This process is a secret, known only to
the makers of Tuxedo,. To get the best-get Tuxedo.
When you smoke, you smoke to get joy and repose-
that comfey, gosh-but-life-is-good feeling. That's why you'll
like Tuxedo. Tuxedo is all pleasure and a yard wide. Roll
those old creamy puffs of Tuxedo, from your pipe or cigarette,
around in your mouth! Get that aromatic fragrance! Get
that smooth-as-cream tobacco richness! And it's all so mild
and gentle you can smoke Tuxedo all day long if you like.
No other tobacco compares for an instant with Tuxedo.
Get some and see for yourself. Tuxedo stands absolutely
in a class by itself.
