. H. Borlla Says Madrid Government
Lacks Necessary Financial
"The possibility of Spain following
the example of Portugal in entering
the present European war can only be
entertained by people who are unac-
quainted with the history of Spain
prior to her separation from Portugal,"
said R. H. Bonilla, instructor in the
Spanish department in an interview
yesterday. "According to these people,
Spain would sid with the Central
Powers and endeavor to assimilate
Portugal, or perhaps enter the war
against the Allies with the sole idea
of taking revenge for old grudges.
Nothing is more remote than that. The
Portugal of our day is a very poor
ward to be desired by any country."
The instructor continued: "With an
enormous public debt, a budget su-
perior by far in its expenses to the
contributive power of her five million
inhabitants, an administration show-
ing the symptoms of an irremediable
disorganization, and a public spirit
opposed to anything which is not Eng-
lish, she could not fail to become a
nursery of perpetual internal discord
as a province of Spain.
Moreover, the present financial con-
dition of Spain does not fit her for a
new war. Although, with the very high
taxation of about 93 pesetas ($18.60)
per capita and a deficit of probably
290,000,000 pesetas a year in her bud-
get, still she can provide for all her
necessities; it would be a difficult
probem for her to And resources for
a new war, especially when no foreign
loans could be expected. Certainly the
best thing Spain can do is to remain
neutral as at present. Everyone feels
this way, though personal sympathies
may point to one side or the other."
Mr. William W.Bishop, librarianwas
in Detroit yesterday on business.
Clifford M. Toohy, '16, who was re-
cently operated on for mastoditis, has
been discharged from the hospital.

night. No will be disposed to den
that he has well deserved Mr. Bernard
Shaw's description of him as "th
greatest classical actor on the English
stage." He has touched nothing tha
he has not adorned; he has attained
heights where he has been without a
peer and in every circumstance he ha
thought and made others think nobly
of his art. So it happens that he has
established a high claim upon critica
esteem as well as upon public affec
More than a generation has been en-
riched with a notable gallery of crea-
tions and he closes his career with
the knowledge that by undisputed ad-
mission, his Hamlet is the finest pres-
entation of the part which the modern
stage has seen.

Philadelphia, and once upon the scene
Jerry proceeds to upset the love af-
