ong the colleges, universities and
Ues celebrating the poet's anniver-

in, and fairy dances are to be fea-
red, as well as the old "Green-
eves," the dance :that figures so
ominently throughout Elizabethan

Well-mebbe. The men had known for
a long time that they were ineligible,

are usually fairly prompt in notifying
the heads of organizations as to the

ing worked with the Revue for some
time, and receiving no notice that they
were to get off that specific endeavour,
they thought, naturally, that they were
to be allowed to remain. Such thing
has been done before, y'know, and
leniency has at times been shown.

me that a big fire had broken out near

'A moment's reflection brought to
mind that a party of fifteen campers
(seven men and eight women) from
Seattle were situated directly in the
path of the fire, and that unless warn-
ing reached them within a very few
minutes there would be no possible
chance of their escape.
'Hurriedly saddling my horse, I
started for the scene of the fire. As
I reached the top of a rise of ground
less than a mile from my cabin I could
see the fire sweeping along at an in-
credible rate. Joe, my horse, could

ran by within a dozen feet of me and
turned down the mountain. Realizing
that it was dangerous to hesitate long-
er, I shot my horse through the head.
Then I tied my neckerchief over my
face and plunged down the mountain
after the bear.
"The slope was so steep that I found
that the only means of locomotion was
to lie on my face and roll from tree to
tree. In this process my clothes were
nearly torn from my body and I be-
came black and blue from head to feet.,
Thorns and shrubs were thick and my
flesh was soon torn and bleeding in
several places. All at once I was
stopped by a ledge that projected out
over the side of the canyon. I strug-
gled to my feet and saw in front of
me the mouth of a cave, evidently the
home of some animal that had fled be-
fore the fire. At one side was a small
cistern of water fed by a spring which
bubbled up in its center.
"I had scarcely been in the cave
more than three or four minutes be-

with smoke and fumes. I had taken

relations to the university, than any !is a Boston journalist; keen for inter-
other man in the country today. His 1 esti g adventure, who dashed to the

book is comprised of a series of 13
papers dealing with fraternity prob-
lems, and illustrated by concrete ex-
amples taken, for the most part, from'
life at Illinois, which is typical of all
the great Middle West universities.
The work is of prime value to fra-
ternity men and university administra-
tors, but is probably interesting to
others only in so far as it presents a
clear and fair picture of fraternity vir-
tues, faults and ideals.
Dean Clark, along with all thinking
fraternity men, knows that these or-
ganizations are not sufficient unto
themselves, and that future develop-
ment lies only in the probability that
fraternities will come to see that their
justification is in service to their mem-
bers and their university. This is the
theme of the book. University first
and fraternity second, and not the
other way around, is the motto that
the societies will have to adopt, and,
if we can believe Dean Clark, many
and rapid are the strides that are be-
ing made along this line. It promises
much for the university, more for the
fraternity, and, in the end, will mean
the elimination of the wide-spread
spirit of which anti-fraternity legis-
lation is the outgrowth.
Three chapters deal with subjects of
intimate concern to fratcrnity men at
Michigan. They are the ones oi "7x-
tra-Fraternity Activities," "College Ac-
tivities," and "The Fraternity amd
Scholarship." The first takes up the
case of the habitual "joiner," who
weakens his efficiency as a Chapter
unit for the tinsel of a vest-full of
pins and badges. The second presents
the same view of a problem so often
unjustly condemned because of the ex-,
treme views held by the faculty on one
hand and students on the other. The
third is especially apropos of the new
scholarship chart system, and the
gradual tightening up of university
ThL one regret of the reader arises
fron the fact that the relations be-
tween fraternity and non-fraternity
men are barely touched upon. This is
a bg problem, and one that has to be
fa:ed at every institution, and no bookt
dealing with fraternities is complete
witl.out some mention of it.

scene of action the very afternoon that
the first ultimatum was snapped over
the wire. "Germany officially declares
war on France today."
He borrowed money, took a few sec-
onds to kiss the family good-bye, grab-
his laundry from the front hall as he
was going out, and within a few hours
he was headed for the front. Every-
thing that he did was done with just
that neck-breaking audacity, and the
book tells of his adventures is thrill-
ing in its seeming impossibility. It is
just what young America, on its jour-
nalistic scent, would and did do in
those first fearful months.
The book is not in the least a liter-
ary production. If you are reading for
delight that is purely literary, don't
choose an American journalist, even a
Bostonian. Histories, calm and unat-
mosphered, will no doubt be written
about Von Gluck's first dash to Paris,
and the events which succeeded it, but
for the hot breath of war, for racy
flavor, for the personal touch, for mov-
ing picture vividness, you will make no
mistake in going to this very interest-
ing book, and forgetting for the mo-
ment its newspapery flavor.

when my horse suddenly swerved and
came to a stop. A ten-foot spruce had
blown across the track, completely
blocking the way. On one side a can-

other the steep wall of the mountain
prevented escape in that direction. I}
turned and looked back at the fire. ItE
was less than a mile away and seemed

sweeping in a new direction.
"After cooling my parched skin at
the spring, I painfully slid to the bot-
tom of the canyon and made my way
to the nearest telephone box. Over the
wire I learned that the Seattle camp-
ers had been caught in a pocket of the
mountain and been smothered to death
before aid reached them.
"Turning away I slowly returned to
my cabin, which luckily was out of the
path of the fire. In the reaction that
followed I found myself as weak as a
child and was only able to sink down
on my bunk and thank my lucky stars
for an escape from the fate of those
less fortunate."

who has the leading feminine role, as
"Jane, dau{ :Ater of Spirrious, beloved

complete disregard of the ban. The

"Menaechmi," the Classical club's
play, will be given March 30 in Uni-

The cast has been holding rehearsals
for some time under the direction of
Pauline 0. Emerson, '16, with the as-
sistance of Prof. Herbert A. Kenyon,
of the department of Romance Lan-
guages. Mr. Gilbert H. Taylor, of the
Latin department, an authority on
Plautus, the author of the "Menaech-
mi," has also been training the cast in
Plautean pronunciation and expres-
sion in an effort to reproduce as near
as possible the manner in which the
play was first acted in 215 B. C.
Prof. Albert A. Stanley, head of the
university school of music, has written
the music for five lyric passages in
the play, and professional singers and
players are being secured to give the
musical program under the direction
of Professor Stanley.
In order to attract those interested in
classical literature, whose knowledge
of Latin is not sufficient to understand
the language as spoken, a specially
