No change will be made in the gen-
eral tone and style of the Michi-
ganensian as planned earlier in the
year except that the two editions will
be combined. The war atmosphere
will predominate throughout the
book. \Everything will be considered
from a military angle. Many changes,
however, from former Midhiganen-
sians will be noticed. The editors are
disregarding all precedents and get-
ting out an entirily new and original
book. Certain established traditions
will be adhered to, but the general
makeup is changed completely. j
The first plans, when the annual
was to be published in two editions,'
was to have the seniors in the S. A.
T. C. and naval unit represented in
the first edition and the remainder
of the seniors in the second edition.
Since the signing of the armistice in
France the plans have been changed
so that there will be only one large
edition; which will be published in
January. This arrangement makes it
possible for all the seniors to be in
the book. Seniors should make ap-
pointments with one of the official
photographers, White, . Rentschler,
Swain, or Randall, to have regulation
pictures taken. Two weeks is the time
limit set on photographs.
From the khaki and navy blue
cover, which represents the army aid
navy and incidentally the Maize and
Blue of Michigan, to the finis page,
'Taps," the publication will be "dif-
ferent." It is not copied nor pattern-

ed from any other publication ever)
issued anywhere, but has been plan-
ned and executed by this year's editor
and staff. No one on the editorial staff
has ever been connected with the
Michiganensian before so the ideas
will be new. This will be one of the
attractive points of the book.
"Punch" Put In
One departure from the conven-
tional college annuals is that all stor-
ies will be written in news style rath-
er than in the regular "literary, in-
volved" mAnner that is typical of all
annual records. The staff is attempt-
ing to put a "punch" into this year's
book so that the reading matter will
be as interesting as the hundreds of
illustrations. Most of the book, how-
ever, will be composed of pictures of
life on the campus and in the trench-
es of France.
Lists of Michigan men in the serv-
.ice and those who have given their
lives for liberty will be printed in
,alphabetical arrangement accompan-
ied by pictures of the men on the lists.
Many pages of snap-shots will ap-
pear. An attempt is being made to
have everyone on the campus repre-
sented in some section of the book.
The subscriptions are still being
taken, more than 1,500 already hav-
ing been sold. The edition is to be
limited and few who do not subscribe
in advance will be able to secure
copies. .Arrangements have been
made with the naval officers to have
the company commanders take the
subscriptions of the naval unit men.
A booth is still open in University
hall for subscriptions, and the Michi-
ganensian offices, Press building,
will be kept open daily for the con-
venience of subscribers.

Any attempt to readjust the pres-
ent war scale of wages to the pre-
war basis would be a fatal mistake,
declared Henry Bruere, federal labor
director for New York state. Mr.
Bruere says that prices an# cost of
labor must remain relatively high as
long as we are feeding Europe. Re-
duction of wages would be highly in-
jurious without a corresponding re-
duction in living rates, which would
be practically impossible at this time.
Needs for machinists, at least, ex-
ceed the supply, according to indica-
tions at the United States employment
office at Detroit. One manufacturer
in Flint reported that he would short-
ly need 1,000 men when he began
.making automobiles again. It scarce-
ly seems possible that labor wages
will be reduced as long as the de-
mand exceeds the supply.,

By Montague Glass and Jules Eckert

Broadway has a new moving picture
star to compete with Douglas Fairbanks
and Charlie Chaplin in the field of film
comedy. The newcomer is Will Rogers
and he drags a "wicked smile," in addi-
tion to a familiar lariat, from the vaude-
ville and musical comedy stage into the
movies. His first picture, entitled
"'Laughing. Bill Hyde," pleased the
crowds at the Rivoli Theatre yesterday
and made an amusing entertainment.
"Laughing Bill Hyde," at the Rivoli
registered a personal triumph for Will
Rogers in the title role. The story was
written by Rex Beach. . . . It is
the story of a good-natured rogue with
redeeming features, whose victims are
rogues without such saving grace.
It ("Laughing Bill Hyde") is all good.
It is so decisively all good that those
who saw it for the first time couldn't
get away from the idea that they were
sitting in on an historic filmland event,
the birth of a new star. If it were a
spoken comedy in which Will Rogers

was making his first appearance, instead
of a movie, folks out front would be
pardoned for flattering themselves that
they were witnessing the emergence of
another Joseph Jefferson. Yes, it was as
surprising and as satisfying as all that.
It was not only the smiling,
quaintlooking Will Rogers who, as an
ex-convict"who couldn't quit "borrow-
ing" and finally "borrowed" in a good
cause, which made everybody (except a
few real bad men) happy, gave as de-
lightful a characterization as has ever
appeared on the screen. It was not
only the smiling, quaint-looking Will
Rogers as he has been seen under the
spotlight; it was the witty, humorous
Will Rogers as well. Never were funnier
captions than those which sprinkled
through this story. It must have been
Rogers himself who wrote them (or, per-
haps, rewrote them). For once, a high
class movie audience waited for captions
and greeted them with gusto......
In a "purely acting sense," too, Rogers
displayed unusual powers, especially in
the utterly unexpected expression of
pathos. His quaint, even homely, coun-
tenance; his loose-jointed, shambling fig-
ure, and above all, that illuminating
smile-well, if David Belasco doesn't try
him out in a part. he (D. B. ) may-
just may-be losing another Warfield.
That's all.

Amsterdam, Nov. 16.-The ex-kai-
ser accompanied by 16 officers arrived
Monday to take up his exile at Amer-
ongon at the castle of Count Goddard
von Bentinck. His family was not
with him and it is understood that
nothing is known of the whereabouts
of the crown prince.
The ex-kaiser has pub shed a state-
ment which is supposed t make it
clear to everyone that his jrney is
not to be interpreted as a fligat. It is
simply to relieve the new govern ment
of Germany of any embarrasswe:
which his presence might cause a
to prevent his being the center of a

What "'Wid" Says-
We've quoted "Wid" before, and you have found
his criticism absolutely dependable--Here's
something more from hin about "LAUGHING
"A Whale As Entertainment, Human, Sincere, Funny; Really


ZOWIE I Boys, get set I If you don't
knock 'em dead with this, you're sick.
There just ain't no excuse why you
should miss fire on this one . It's a bear.
Director Hobart Henley jumped funny
old Bill Rogers right up into the big
league on his first time out. Whoever
had the happy thought of picking our
trick rope monologist for Rex Beach's
story, certainly deserves a red apple be-
cause, boys, he just naturally belongs in
that character. But, boys, don't over-
look the fact that despite Bill's being
fitted for the part, and Mr. Beach having
written a great lot of titles to go with
the good story, it was necessary for Ho-
bart Henley to take our big gum-chewing
cowboy and make him act natural, and
I'm telling you that it's some job to get
anyone to act natural the first time they
step out in front of the old one-eyed
nionster that the camera man grinds.
Everyone who knew anything about
Bill Rogers has been wondering what
would hapepn when Bill got before a
camera. It's hapepnecl ! But full credit
must be given to the director for easing
the way for Bill. If you have never been
in front of a movie camera yourself, just
stc~ and consider how much all our
great personages act as you see them in
the news weeklies when they are being
filmed. There's something about that
staring lensethat makes you very* self
conscious, and it's tedious work to keep
anyone from "actin'."
The casual person who might see funny
old Bill in this would say, "Isn't he na-
tural ?" He sure is, and that's a real
art, combined with a lot of patience and
hard work on the part of both Mr. Ro-
gers and Mr. Henley. Bill's smile is

great but it was work to make it seem
so easy.
The st ry has to do with an escaped
convict who befriends a little Indian girl
and a doctor who had befriended him
when he meets them in Alaska, with
drammer provided by the willuns who
were stealing the gold from Indian beau-
ty's claim, and Bill, who was some crook',
himself, double crosses the tough guys
so that everything panned out all right.
The story holds perfectly, because it is
filled with human touches, sincere char-
acterization, and Mr. Beach has provided
one of the most delightful set of titles
that I have ever seen in any film. I
have an idea that many people will think
that Mr. Rogers is responsible for many
of these titles because he is"known as a
wit, but I made special inquiry as to
this and was informed that Mr. Beach
had written most of the titles with two
of them furnished by the star. Whoever
wrote any of them, I'm telling you, they-
're great.
Anna Lehr, as the Indian girl, was
powerful goodlooking for an Indian, but
just the same she was entirely in charac-
ter and surely played the part perfectly.
Every character, down to the bits, was
beautifully done, and righthere and now
I want again to mention the fact that I;
think Hobart Henley is one of the most
capabledirectors in the business when it
comes to picking types and registering
characterizations that really convince.
This holds true both for comedy
touches human bits of pathos. In the
cast were John Sainpolis, Clarence Oli-
ver, Mabel Ballin, Joseph Herbert, Rob-
ert Conville and Dan Mason.
