MEN'S REAL PURPOSES IN
Editor, The Michigan Daily: -
To any real Michigai' student the
communications appearing in The
Daily# regarding the attitude' of the
men toward the women of Michigan,
have certainly seemed most unfair and
Ohio State does not realize; however,
even the purpose of a great univer-
sity, and would have us believe that
such an institution is a sort of mat-
rimonial agency, where the men shgould
show their school spirit each even-
ing, by taking the co-eds down town

convinced, however, that unlike that
small university, the students of Mich-
igan agree with me when I say that
such little festivities, important as they
may seem to O. S. U., are not our
'motives for coming to college. We are
here to fit ourselves for useful oc-
cupations and cannot afford to fritter
away too much of our time at their
course of study.1
The statement that Michigan women
are insulted and ridiculed on the
streets of Ann Arbor is as false as
it is uncalled for. Nowhere, I think,
can a girl walk with greater assur-
ance of receiving every courtesy. As
a general thing, the feeling between
the. men and women students is most
friendly, and if there are any women-
haters at this University, their preju-
dice against coeds was very likely
caused by some such individual as the
writer of Friday's communication, who
rather approves of Ohio's sodawater
'policy, and appears to be rather put out
because she is not the object of more
This is not the typical Michigan
woman's attitude. Most of the women
here are as busy as the men, and do
not jealously condemn Michigan, like
she and Ohio university, because we
have so little time to sing their
praises. MICHIGAN STUbENT.

PEGGY HYLAND in MISS ADVENTURE,
AT THE MAJESTIC
"For Better, For Worse," which will
be shown for the last times today at
the Majestic, might easily be recogniz-
ed as a Cecil B. De Mille production,
even were that name omitted from the
.program, for it displays a lavishness
of settings and costumes that have
come to be representative of that di-
The story is admirably constructed
and deals with the "eternal triangle"
in a refreshing way. A young physi-
cian is misunderstood when he does
not enlist' for military service. His
fiancee also misjudges him and their
happiness is atout to be wrecked when
she is forcefully brought to a reali-
zation of her mistake.
The cast includes Elliott Dexter,
Gloria Swanson, Jack Holt, and Theo-
dore Roberts, and these are given real
opportunities to act in the picture,
.since there is excellent dramatic in-
terest supplied. The photography is
unusual' and there are three or four
The comedy feature is "Rip and

AT THE ARCADE
"The Better 'Ole," adapted from
Bruce Bairnsfather's famous car-
[toons, 'will be the screen attraction for
three days commencing today at the
Arcade. Charles Rock, who imper-
sonated "Old Bill" on the stage is the
main character in the story, while
"Alf" and "Bert" help to furnish the
quaint English humor that runs
through the picture.
The stage production of "The Better
'Ole" is having a long run at the
Cort theater, New York, and in addi-
tion to this, seven road companies are
covering the country. The picture is
not a "war picture" but is described
as a comedy that carries a message of
good cheer from those who fought for
justice but never forget to laugh.
AT TiE WHITNEY
Features of Lyman H. Howe's latest
Travel Festival, which is booked for
Friday, May 16, at the Whitney, are a
journey through Japan, with its sacred
temples and shrines; a steamer trip
down the mysterious Ocklawaha in the
Florida glades; a novel and lucid ex-
planation in motion of the insignia of
the United States army; a strenuous
canoe fishing expedition into the Ca-
nadian wilds, and glimpses of Italian
ski warriors being trained in the Alps.
There will also be shown a view of
a giant caterpillar tractor moving a
two-story residence bodily across a
city; thrilling aviation pictures filmed
over the city of Washington; and
some sensational films showing the
capture of sea-elephants, sharks, and
swordfish in the South Pacific. In ad-
dition, there will be shown the Howe
animated comic cartoons and film nov-
