"rack as the Pit
From Pole to Pole"
I stand in the cold gray weather,
In the white and silvery rain;
The great trees huddle together,
And sway with the windy strain.
i dream of the purple glory
Of the roseate mountain-height
And the sweet-to-remember story
Of a distant and clear delight.
The rain keeps constantly raining,
And the sky is cold and gray,
And the wind in the trees keeps com-
That summer has passed away;-
But the cold and the gray are haunted
By the beauty akin to pain,-
By the sense of a something wanted,
That will never come again.
At the Union Leap Year party they
claimed that they placed canvas over
the faces of the deadlier sex, and
then allowed the men to pick their
partners. We suggest that the Union
make a permanent feature of this.
Our Dilly Dally claims that the wo-
men at this affair would glance at
each new couple, and would seemingly
ask, "Did you ask him or did he ask
you?" Don't you believe it. The sen-
tence should read, "Huh, it's a darn
good thing this is 'a Leap-Year Party,
or YOU wouldn't be here. And that
same old dress, too!"

be made of the work of Profs. Kenyon

In a recent census at the univer-
siy of Indiana, 98 per cent of the
students interviewed expressed a be-
lief in religion, but many confessed
that they did not know what they
meant by the term. The answers
raied from a definition of religion
as an intellectual standard to a be-
lief in the sufficiency of the moral
life. That state of affairs is quite
tyliical of the normal campus thought.
The average student is quite con-
tent with the assertion that the Gol-
d(en Rule is religion enough for him,
forgetful of the fact that he is sub-
scribing to a mode of living so ideal
that few can attain it; a mountain
region of moral practice.
No doubt it is easy to say that the
Sermon on the Mount his religion
enough for the average fellow, but
how to attain that brotherly spirit
and temper of mind is the puzzling
problem. \Vhen a university fresh-
man confessed that his room-mate
was a good Christian but hard to get
along with, he placed religion in a
sphere by itself and divorced it from
every day life.
Religion ought to be the power
that makes a man a good companion.
No individual can qualify as a good
Christian and a bad associate. The
terms are mutualy exclusive. Its
like praising a dinner as excellent
while admitting that the food lacked
all nutritive value. The end toward
which we are all striving is a true
brotherhood of right thinking and liv-
ing, and if religion does not make a
man a better companion, it is not
performingits function.
, Let astudent frankly set himself to
the task of fulfilling the terms of the
Sermon on the Mount and if he is
sineere, he will confess that he is
eagerly searching for a power to aid
him in his living. That power or
drive which makes possible the type
olife which we all desire, is' re-

Music lovers of Ann Arbor are look-
ing forward with keen expectation to
the two performances to be given in
Detroit at the Lyceum Theatre on
Friday, Jan. 28, matinee and night, by
the Boston Grand Opera Company in
conjunction with the Pavlowa Ballet
After consulting representative cit-
izens of Detroit, Mr. Rabinoff decided
to give Puccini's melodious "La Bo-
heme," which will be'followed by the
first presentation in that city of the
Spanish Ballet, a novelty in this coun-
try, in which Mme. Pavlowa never ap-;
peared until last fall.
The organization, which comes here
direct from its splendid successes in
New York: Beston, Philadelphia,
Washington and other representative
eastern cities, includes the same dis-
tinguished artists which captivated
both critics and public, substantially
the same orchestra and chorus, the
same artistic directors 0(1 the same
beautiful scenery and costumes which
are of the finest character ever before
shown in this country save in such
cities as New York and Boston.
The cast for "La Bohenme includes
either the celebrated English lyric so-
prano, Miss Maggie Teyte, who sang
at the Paris Opera Comique, Covent

Garden, London, and the Philadelphia
opera; or the great American soprano,
Felice Lyne; Mle. Olivete Marcel, a
young lyric soprano, who has made
rapid strides in her profession and is
now looked upon as one of the most
promising in opera; Riccardo Martin,
or Guiseppo Gaudenzi, the distin-
uishged Italian lyric tenor; Thomas
Chalmers, the American baritone, or
Graham Marr, formerly at Covent
Garden and the Chicago Opera Com-
pany, and regarded as one of the
finest of American baritones; Jose
Mardones, who has appeared in all
the best European opera houses and
is conceded to be Spain's foremost
basso; Giorgo Puliti, the splendid
Italian baritone,. and Paolo Ananian,
for many years one of the most re-
liable of the New York Metropolitan
Opera Ilouse baritones. Maestro Rob-
erto Moranzoni, whose conducting has
recently caused him to be called
young Tosanini, will direct the per-
Following "La Boheme," the Span-
ish Bal let, performed to music by
Moskowski, Massenet and Glazounov,

tire Ballet Russe, under the musical
direction of Mr. Adolf Schmid.
