WANT STUIDENT INTEREST
IN MILITARY CAMP IDEA
c nate Connel Passes Resolution That
Faculty Should Take Steps
to i nsre Attendance
That the faculty is determined to
impress upon the student body the
need of military training was evidenced
when the Senate Council passed the
following significant resolution at a
meeting Monday afternoon:
Whereas, one step toward the in-
surance of this country against the
disasters and desolation which have
heen forced upon, or have overtaken,
other countries, is the training of in-
11elligent young men, such as are in
enr universities, in all the arts nec-
( sary for effective defense, therefore
it is
l e olved, that it is the sense of
the Senate Council that the Faculties
of this University should consider
present conditions seriously, and
,hould take such actions, or devise
such methods, as would induce the
largest possible number of students
:o attend the summer military camps
conducted by the Federal Govern-
ment.
The Senate Council also granted the
request of musical clubs to make a
long trip (luring spring vacation.

BOOKS WORTH -REAING
THE ABYSS.-By Nathan Kussy. -
New York: Macmillan.
This is the life-story of a crook, who,
after several attempts to "go straight"
finally gives up, and determines, that
since the world will give him no
chance to be honest, he will profit by
dishonesty.
The story is interesting, picturesque
and in places curiously vivid. The
descriptions of early childhood, though
senti.nieitaX are striking, and contain
some unusual characters. Especially
good is the odd, half-crazed Betty, who
spends all her money for apples and
pear., for the children.
The whole book, however, seems to
lack a touch of personal reality, and
witho. t this it is merely propaganda.
It is rot the account of the unfortun-
ate er'minal himFelf, but it is written
for him by one who is imbued withl
the wrongs of the poor and the un-
prot-ac(ted, and who wants to make a
plee to society in his behalf.
T-c -e is this strained effort to put
the Tv:oral lesson clearly before the
reader, and this quite overshadows,
the stony. Mr. Kussy's model is Dick-
ens, but where Dickens' moralizing
is often unconscious, Mr. Kussy is at
all times self-consciously moral. He
makes the unpardonable mistake of
letting his interest in his propaganda
subordinate his interest to the story
he has to tell.

PRF STINLEY WRITES
MUSIC FOR LATIN PLAY
Play to Be Staged in Accordance With
Roman Custom; t(ivea During
Schoolmasters' Meeting
Prof. Albert A. Stanley, of the
School of Music,, has composed five
lyric passages for the Latin play,
"Menaechmi," which is to be given by
the Classical club March 30 in Uni-
versity hall during the time of the
classical conference of the School-
masters' club in Ann Arbor.
These lyrics will be sung on the
stage by special singers while the ac-
tors carry the acting on in pantomime.
This is in accordance with Roman cus-
tom, for the Roman audiences insist-
ed upon having the highest art in
both singing and acting. As not all
actors were first rate singers they
specialized by having a different per-
son for the singing.
The accompaniment in the Roman
theater was given on double pipes.
The double pipe to be used in the play
is from the Stern's musical collec-
tion and has an interesting history.
It was designed and made as one of
a series' of reproductions of ancient
musical instruments, prepared for a
great pageant, which was given among
the ruins of Pompeii in 1883.
