CECIL B. DeMILL IE'S
Ensign P. C. Stephen, '18E, of the
United States navy, who was recent-
ly stationed here in the S. N. T. C.,,
was called to Hoboken Wednesday,
night. Ensign Stephen received his,
diploma from the Engineering college
early-last April. He is a member of
the Theta Delta Chi fraternity and al-,
so of the Tau Beta Pi honorary fra-
ternity in the Engineering college.
Because of his marked ability in his
branch he was picked with eight other
men to be sent to the Pelham Bay
naval training school, New York. He,
received a commission as ensign there,
after five months of training, the
shortest time that it is possible to earn
a commission in the navy.-
Torpedoed in Two Places
His first and trial ocean voyage was
made on the U. S. S. "Westover." The
"Westover" was also taking her first
voyage as a U. S. supply boat, At an
unknown distance from the coast of
France, the ship was torpedoed in two
placeswithout any warning whatso-
ever. The "Westover" sank almost
immediately having a heavy cargo of
automobile trucks and locomotives.
At the time of the explosion Stephen
was sleeping in the engine room. The
noise was so muffled that those be-
low did not know there was any troui-
ble until the call to the life boats
was issued. Stephen was one of the
last to leave the sinking ship. He was
too late to be able to get into a life-
boat and was forced to jump into the
North Sea in his sketchy night attire.
He swam about until he was picked
up by a life boat, the same one which
held the captain of the ship.
Tries to Qet Captain
As the life-boat was hurrying from
the scene of the disaster, the sub rose
from the water beside them and de-
manded the captain. It happened that
the captain had camouflaged himself
by daubing his face with grease and
donning a suit of overalls. The at-
tempt of the Hun U-Boat to take him
back to Germany was thus foiled.
For four days and nights the sur-
vivors rowed toward France and
when the coast was finally reached,
many of them were nearly exhausted
Upon his return to this country,
Stephen was sent to Ann Arbor where
he had charge of the Engineering de-
partment of the S. N. T. C. He is now
at. Hoboken from which it is suppos-
ed he will again be sent to carry sup-
plies to the Yanks over there.

This smashing musical comedy suc-
cess will be seen here for the firstI
time and comes direct from its suc-
cess in New York and Chicago. In
New York "Leave it to Jane" ran six
months at the Longacre theater, and
in Chicago it played at the La Salle
theater for six months. The bookand
lyrics are by Guy Bolton and P. G.
Wodehouse. The music is by Jerome
"Leave it to Jane" is founded on
George Ade's famous comedy, "The
College Widow," and embodies all the
humor and delightful character'imper-
sonations of that successful play, The
story follows in general outline the
famous Ade play, but the librettists
have elaborated certain features
which are best adapted to musical ex-
ploitation. The college atmosphere
has been preserved, and there are
hosts of pretty girls. The spontaneous
good humor of "Leave it to Jane" has
made it the distinct musical comedy
success of many years.
