MORE OF THE CAMPUS NEXT TIME
Last night the rollicking spirits of McIntyre and
Heath, Lew Dockstader, Fred Stone, and the other
knights of the burnt cork, appeared incognito to
conspire for laughs at the Whitney in "Minstrelsy,"
whose initial performance has surpassed the claims
to excellence made by its sponsors.
Soft shoe dancing, hypnotism, and innumerable
variety acts all contributed toward showing that
under the supervision of the Union the musical
clubs have created a blackface travesty that is dis-
tinctive among minstrel shows. The droll observa-
tions and altercations of the endmen, which formed
the basis of the jokes and repartee, were important
in winning applause and conveying to the audience
the informal, care-free atmosphere essential to suc-
cess, and the unusually good musical selections of
the clubs themselves served to round out the pro-
Through its success "Minstrelsy" has filled an
important niche in the University's comedy world.
But it has not entirely justified hopes that it would
become the forerunner of a long line of black face
comedies drawing their humor from campus life,
which should be one of the chief charms of such a
performance. More humorous references to cam-
pus celebrities should be on the program for next
year, and should mean an even greater success than
the excellent minstrelsy revival of 1920.
REWARD FOR "GUS"
Walter Camp's selection for his All-American
second eleven of Angus Goetz, for four years a bul-
wark of Michigan's line, and during the last two
seasons the Maize and Blue's captain in victory and
in defeat, is not so much a tribute to playing skill -
though "Gus" has been one of the best men to get
down under a spiral who ever fought for Michi-
gan - as to that never-give-up trait of character
which makes a great athletic leader.
"Gus" rates All-American because every ounce
of his energy has been spent for Michigan and not
for personal glory; because, no matter what the
misfortune of the play or the final score of a game,
it has always been "we'll get 'em next time ;" be-
cause he has known the value of a smile and a cool
head in a tight place, as well as the time to don his
well-known bulldog face and plough in. Steadiness
and unselfish loyalty are the characteristics which
have made "Gus" an All-American, andichigan
to a man extends the hand of congratulation with
the firm belief that it should have been a first team

morning. 'Martha Cook was completed in 1915, not

Women ...... ...122 366
When the campus clock chimes the hour of 12:15
tonight, thus denoting that the hour of midnight
has come, the question of whether Michigan women
have been successful in their attempts to eradicate
the stigma of being called witless, will be once and
Liza being pursued by the blood-thirsty mongrels
,howling for human gore presents not a bit more
stirring picture than that of the Women of Michi-
gan trying to elude the ever-approaching, relentless
Simon Legrees of masculine wit. Whether their
attempt to cross the ice-caked river of Mediocrity
has been successful will be past history ere another
24 hours have turned their cycle.
The following was turned in from Newberry res-
idence but up to late last night we were unable to
discover any clue as to the sender. However, the
police on two continents are searching for the cul-
prit and her speedy apprehension is expected.
Jean was caught between two trains;
Folks with bags picked up the remains.
The neighbors were greatly stirred up by the scene,
But the only collected person was Jean.

KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
When it was discovered in 1847 that two Greek
:tter fraternities had sprung up at Michigan, the
.egents forbade their continuance and attempted
have State legislation passed against them. The
raternities persevered, however, and secretly in-
iated new members until, after many years, they
ere tolerated by the University. At present there
+e listed on the campus fifty-seven fraternities and
ASSURING MICHIGAN'S FUTURE
On the honor rolls of every university there are
'ores of names of men who were "unknown" in
gh school but "found themselves" during their
>llege careers. Each year men who have shown
>great amount of ability in any particular line be-
ire coming to a university, discover what they can
> best, and spring into prominence. .
But these sudden leaps from obscurity past riv-
s whose progress has been attracting notice are
:ceptional rather than ordinary, and receive their
equent mention largely because they are unusual.
ack of experience, if nothing else, handicaps men
itering phases of college affairs new to them and
contesting against others who have scored suc-
sses during preparatory school life they are at a
sadvantage. For this reason, if no other, the nu-
eus of every great university organization of the
ture must almost inevitably be largely composed

"The Michigan of the future" may seem to be
r removed from our powers of guidance, but
is much at least is true and we should not fail
iring vacation to act on it; we can now play an
tive part in assuring Michigan's gieatness for
other four years at least by influencing high
hool seniors who have led in student activities to

GOVERNOR ALLEN'S TOPIC
Governor Henry J. Allen, who speaks in Hill
iditorium Thursday evening, is, a man who has
ent years studying the underlying causes which
sulted in the present "Kansas Industrial Situa-
)n," his topic.
Like many men who have acquired fame in the
>litical world, Governor Allen started his career
a journalist, serving as editor of the Manhattan
ationalist and later as owner of the Wichita Daily
Bacon. He was mentioned as a likely candidate
r the presidency on account of his executive abil-
t, demonstrated most forcibly in his present ca-
city as governor of Kansas, and in his handling
labor-and-capital troubles in that state.
"The Kansas Industrial Situation" is a subject
hich most of us could well learn more about, in-
much as the conditions treated are typical and
mptomatic of: the nation's problems along the
m tine, which sooner or later we must meet face
From force of habit our girl is ever ready to en-
joy a laugh even at our expense. Just the other
night when we were coming back from taking her
to the Follies at the New Detroit, we got to figur-
ing up what the bill had come to and were naturally
a little sober. Observing how thoughtful we were
she finally remarks:
"Well, what's wrong with you, Jack?"
Still busy with our mental arithmetic we re-
. "Don't bother us, girl. Can't you see there is
something preying on our mind?"
"Well," she answers sweetly, "let it alone, it'll
soon die of starvation."
And then our forced and hollow guffaws min-
gled with her refined, girlish laughter.
