o Junior Girls' Play Better,
Than Opera, Says Mr. Cowles

The Junior Girls' play, whatever
else may be said about it, was certain-
ly much better than the Opera. The
scenes which were merely intended
to be beautiful were no miore so than
EXPECTS those in the Opera, but the scenes that
were supposed to be 'funny--well,
they were funny. The Opera relied,
for its laughs, on sage cracks fished
PATCH out of old Gargoyles; this play was
clever all by itself. Whenever the
Col. Au- hero came onto the stage he found
iptures prepared for himself a situation that
would inspire the very dullest dog to'
say something bright. Bernice Hill

The local digs, which are held out

This business of reviewing a play

"People of South Africa showed
great interest in our expedition and
did everything possible to help us car-
ry on our investigations there," said
Prof. W. J. Hussey, director of the
observatory, yesterday in commenting
upon expedition to South Africa for
the purpose of- locating a site for thel
new 27-inch refracting telescope do-
nated to the University by Robert P.
Lamont '91E.
Professor Hussey arriving in Bloem-
fontein, in Orange Free State, at 10,
o'clock at night was met at the sta-
tion by thecity clerk, the president ofa
the university of that city, and two
professors. The next morning he met
the mayor who told the city engineer
of Bloemfontein to help Professor Hus-
sey in any way that he could. A car-
penter and laborers were delegated to
help him erect a platform for the 10-
inch telescope with which he conduct-
ed his investigations. The mayor also
sent a watchman to stay with the tele-
scope when Professor Hussey was not
there. An electric line was strung to
the top of Naval Hill for his benefit.
Several free sites were offered to
Professor Hussey in different parts of
South Africa. One city sent its mayor'

to Bloemfontein to offer a free site,
necessitating a trip of over 10 hours.
Naval Hill, two and a half miles from
Bloemfontein, seems to offer the best
site according to Professor Hussey.
The summit is 350 feet above the level
of the city and has a surface of three
or four hundred acres. Its proximity
to the city makes an easily accesible
water supply and electric power. This
was the only place where Professor
Hussey set up his telescope to carry
on a detailed investigation for the
conditions of "seeing" would be the

The climate and weather conditions
in South Africa were much better than
IProfessor Hussey expected to find.
During the two months that he was in
Bloemfontein, the nights were con-
tinously clear. He spent most every
evening during December and January
investigating the conditions. This was
supposed to be the' rainy season in
this section of the country, but less
than ten per cent of the nights while
he was there were even cloudy enough
to prevent him from carrying on his
work. Prolonged rains are unknown

Ronus Bill Not Discussed But Proba-.

Washington, D. C., March 21.-(By
A. P.)-President Coolidge today urged
the senate leaders to speed up consid-
eration of the revenue bill when in-
formed by Senator Smoot and Sena-
tor Curtis, Republican, of the finance
committee that it would pass it before
June 1 now seems unlikely.
Although the soldiers' bonus bill
was not discussed at the White House
conference Mr. Smoot said it was prob-
able this measure would, be given
priority over the tax reduction bill by
the ,committee for immediate action,
and predicted that little time would
be required for its disposal in com-

again made plain at the White House,

he will vete or sign it.

Prof. Emil Lorch of the department
of architceture has accepted a off r
to deliver a series of talks before the

Lorch has announced as his subjects
for the addresses, "The Interior De-

by the, Furniture association of the

In addition to Professor Lorch, Mr.
Berbard C. Jakwgy, of the University
