THE LEAD, AGAIN
During the long. course of its existence the pro-
ssion of the actor has perhaps received more
use than any other pursuit. Many have been its
s and downs, and ever changing its destiny.
The drama itself, with -the exception of short
rnods of extreme puritanism such as the Crom-
ellian reign in England, has maintained through
e ages the favor of the masses as well as the
asses. Greece gave us classics in this comparable
her sculpture and architecture. Christianity in-
>duced the rudiments of the drama into its church
remnonies, and continued to develop it there until
e productions became unfit for religious pur-
ses. Corneille, Racine, and Shakespeare are the
spiring culmination of this drama which origin-
y emanated from the church.
Thus while the drama itself has remained popu-
r and respected through all this time, the lot of the
tor .has been a hard one. In Greece slaves were
e performers. In the Middle Ages soldiers or
ggars played the parts, and their vulgarities soon
rced the drama from church to market place.
his, together with the uncertain and itinerant life
hich the performers were forced to lead, shed a
ht of ill repute upon the acting profession, a
igma the remnants of which crop forth even to-
y - as in the controversy concerning Sarah
:rnhardt's admission to the French Legion of
On the whole, however, the status of the actor
s risen steadily during the last seventy-five years.
:rhaps the best proof of this is the interest which
.iversities have taken recently in training men for
e stage. Stich an instruction would have been un-
:rd of in the early nineteenth century.
For some time now, Michigan has striven to ob-
n a workshop for the proper pursuit of her dra-
atic aspirations, and in the midst of a slow though
termined effort upon the part of her student body
raise funds for this purpose, has come the an-
uncement that University appropriation is to be
ide for practical instruction in the drama.
The approval of definite plans for the erection of
large campus theater and an open air theater to
built in the near future brings the realization of
,reat progressive step into view. During the past
w years Michigan with her Union has set the pace
other universities planning like institutions. And
w she is again about to take the lead -- this time
THE CHANGE OF A CENTURY
Viscount Bryce in the introduction to his newest.
>k "Modern Democracies" states that a century
o there was in the old world but one tiny spot in
itzerland in which the workings of democracy
ild be noticed. Within thie hundred years that
w lie behind us nearly all of the monarchies have
nged to the newer form of government and the
ve of free institutions has spread through most
Europe and part of Asia.
When the American republic began its national
life in 1789 the only materials which history furn-
ished to its founders were those which the republics
of antiquity had inaugurated. From 1789 to 1799
the world passed into a new phase but these ten
years were for France years of revolution in which
democracy had no chance to make a beginning. It
was in the United States only that popular govern-
ment could be profitably studied.
But twenty new republics have sprung up in the
western hemisphere during the past century. Five
new democracies have been developed out of colo-
nies within the British dominion. Four great em-
pires in Europe as well as a fifth in Asia all ruled
by ancient dynasties have recently crashed to the
ground and efforts are being made to build up out
of the ruins new states each of which is enacting
for itself a democratic instrument of government.
The latest development is the granting of a new
constitution for Ireland which if ratified, as it ap-
pers certain it will be, will give Ireland a demo-
cratic form of government.
The above clearly indicates that free institutions
which years ago were looked on with ridicule by the
ruling classes of Europe, and later with fear as they
became more of a reality, are now favored the world
over. Previous to 1914 the sprad of democratic
forms of government had been consistently taking
place. It took only the recent war to complete the
marvelous change that has taken place during the
CARVE, SENIORS, CARVE
In the old days, when when Joe's and the Orient
flourished and were the gathering places of the male
members of the University, students were wont to
decorate the tables of these places with their names.
Every table was a mass of cognomens and sculp-
tural activity. The carving of these names was
more than a mere idle pastime. It was done so that
when the author might return, perhaps years later,
the sight of that table-top might bring back tender
memories of his Alma Mater, might recall old
friends, and revive old scenes. But time passed; and
times changed, and Joe's and the Orient vanished.
But so revered were the old table-tops that they were
removed to the tap-room of the Union, where they
now adorn the ceiling.
The old tables are filled, but the tap-room tables
have replaced them and during the last few years
have been covered with scores of names. The call
has come for the seniors, who are the only ones so
privileged, to make their mark. So, carve, seniors,
Radical changes in military drill are rumored to
be taking place in Ann Arbor. Those who have ob-
served the secret maneuvers make the astounding
statement that "four abreast" instead of "five
abreast" while on campus walks, is now the rule
followed by Michigan amazons.
The Muse Has Come - to Someone Else
Sometimes I feel inspired to write
A funny skit or mirthful squib,
One that would make a solemn judge
Unroot his jaw or split a rib.
But somehow when I get all set
My pen well poised for rhymed flight,
I find that some more brilliant guy
Has written what I'd hoped to write.
Then and Now
The Daily recently announced that "the Summer
Session of '94 announced a strong program, lan-
guages and science being particularly effective."
Professor Wenley's "Philosophy I" is no doubt a
continuation of one of these "strong language"

silvery clouds overhead, when he suddenly turned
about to a friend.
"Do you know Frank Smith?" he asked.
"Who?' 'replied the surprised friend.
"What?" was the answer. -Erman.
