Irvin S. Cobb, America's foremost
humorist, will speak in Hill auditor-
ium Saturday, Nov. 30, at 8 o'clock.
Mr. Cobb was greeted in New York
by great crowds during the months
of June, July, and August. He has
been with the American armies at the
front and has seen much of actual
warfare. He will also be able to
tell much concerning the sinking of
the Lusitania, of which he was an
eye witness. -
Mr. Cobb's reputation as a writer
rests mainly upon his humor, but his
ability to look at things from a more
serious angle is shown in his treat-
ment of the war. When reading one
of his books one becomes intensely in-
terested by the first paragraph and
does not stop until he has read the
last word. He consented to come to]
Ann Arbor only when he learned that
it was a college town and that theren
were a great number of soldiers here.
Anyone who goes to hear Mr. Cobbd
is sure of receiving a rare treat. d
