From behind the staring moon face,

In their feathers and their war paint
Soon will gather round the Oak Tree,
Round the Oak Tree called Tappan -

Many in number wait the bidding
Of the loud rejoicing redskins,

Many trials and many tortures

Ere he calls each paleface "Indian"

Washington. May 9. - In a de-
tailed statement concerning the
prosecution of war fraud cases, pre-1
pared at the request of the President
and transmitted today to the house,
Attorney General Daugherty declar-
ed that examinations so far, completed
disclose in each instance "sufficient
indication that a crime had been com-
mitted to warrant submitting them to
a grand jury."
Would Investigate Laxity
Presented on the eve of a Repub-
lican caucus, called to consider a leg-
islative program including a Republi-,
can resolution for investigation of
charges of alleged laxity in prosecu-
tion by the department of justice, the
attorney general's letter provoked a
partisan row, in which Representa-
tive Barrett, the Democratic leader,
broadly intimated that it was intended
to smother the proposed investigation.
Charging that "little, or nothing,"'
had been done by the former adminis-
tration "to bring war robberies to
light," Mr. Daugherty wrote the Pres-
ident that the country would soon
have reason to know that influential
personages in the government, who
had knowledge of these transactions,
anti were in a position to make dis-
closures, were personally interested
in concealing them." The }depart-
ment, he said, was handling upward
of 200 war contract cases, and if re-
coveries were obtained in all, the total
would reach $100,000000.
Fraud Seems Widespread
It was a terrible thing, the attorney
general said, to charge a citizen with
robbing his own government, and for
that reason he had insisted on a pains-
taking investigation in all cases in-
volving charges criminality.
Given half a million dollars, and
with the passage of an impending bill
for 23, addtiional judges and an extra
grand jury in the District of Colum-
bia, Mr. Daugherty said the work

"The responsibilities of the newspa-
per man of the future" was the key-
note of an address given last night
before the Press club by Mr. A. P.
Johnson, managing editor of , the
Grand Rapids Press.
"There is a great tendency toward
socialism in the newspapers," said
Mr. Johnson, "and the greatest task
that lies ahead of the future journal-
ist is to uphold the standard institu-
tions of today. The newspapers of to-
day have not the interests of the
world at heart," continued Mr. John-
son. "They are ruled by the desire
to make money. Until the newspaper
realizes its responsibility toard hu-
mahity and is governed by e ideals.
of justice and truth, journalism will
continue to be in a static rather than
a constructive state,"
At the conclusion of Mr. Johnson's
speech, J. N. Sahni, a graduate stu-
dent of the 'journalism , department,
made a few remarks on "Journalism
in India." Mr. Sahni came from In-
dia primarily for the purpose of Study-
ing American journalism.

Mimes' production of the '"Thee
Cloister" a play by Bayard Wellier
next Friday and Saturday nights will
be the first presentation in America of
the famous French drama. This pro-
duction' has another interest as being
the first attempt Mimes has made to
put on poetic drama, a direct depart-
ure from the work on the opera and
the other musical c nedy productions.
No Female Characters
The play, which is written entirely
in blank verse, has gained distinction
as being "a play without a woman."
There are no female character parts
and no mention of a woman from be-
ginning to end. It was written in
1899 and produced fn Brussells, Paris,
and London. Several American com-
panies are working on the piece in
New York but this is the first attempt
to produce it in this country. The
action of the play is laid within a
monastery and the characters are all
monks of the cloister. The drama has
a religious plot which the characters
weave and work out more by forceful,
beautiful rhetoric than by direct. ac-
tion.. '
'the cast of "The Cloister" has been
working on the play for more than
two months, under the personal di-
rection of E. Mortimer Shuter. The.
complete cast of characters has not
yet been announced. Thomas I. Un-
derwood, '23L, will play the part of
Brother Thomas, a heavy, forceful
character. Dom Mark, the gentlest
ionk of the cloister, will be portray-
ed by Lauren B. Stockesberry, '24, S.
of M., and Dom Balthazar by Carl W.
Guske, '22.
The play is in four acts, none of
then exceptionally long. The main
action passes between the three char-
acters named above.
Tickets for both performances will
go on sale ' at the Mimes theater to-
morrow at 10 o'clock, but mail orders
will be received at. anytime until the

In Amy Lowell, the distinguished
poet who will read at 8 o'clock to-
night in Hill auditorium, is found one
of the most interesting personalities
in modern. poetdy, according to those
who know and understand her. Louis
Untermeyer who rocently spoke in Ann
Arbor,'*says of Miss Lowell, "Of the
limited company of authors, no indi-
vidual has been more fought for,
fought againt, and generally fought
about than Amy Lowell. She has been
hailed and hooted in the trilile capac-
ity of person, propagandist, .and poet.
Nothing is so characteristic of Miss
Lowell as her power to arouse. She
is a conversational . dynamo."
Also it has been said of Miss Lowell,
that she is the least formula-bound
poet now writing. Her work is in
polyphonic prgse, the freest of free
verse. She feels that a poem is not
an isolated phenomenon, but rather a
thing linked up with the poet's per-
sonality, his inheritance, and circum-
stances of his life.
Miss Lowell's outstanding position
in the field of moderA American poet-
ry, her unique personality, and the
fact that she will read and interpret
her own poems, is expected by many
to make this fourth program one of
the best of the poet series.
