Cecil Rhodes, in laying down the
conditions for obtaining the Rhodes
scholarships, gave a definition which
deserves attention in this connection.
The clause in his will reads:
"My desire being that the students

ships shall not b3 merely bookworms,
I 'direct that in the election of a stu-
dent to a scholarship regard shall bel

attainments; (2) his fondness for and
success in manly outdoor sports such
as cricket, football and the like; (3)
his qualities of manhood, truth, cour-
age, devotion to duty, sympathy for
and protection of the weak, kindliness,
unselfishness and fellowship. and (4)
his exhibition during school days of
moral force of character and of in-
stincts to lead and to take an in-,
terest in his schoolmates, for those
latter attributes will be likely in after
life to guide him to esteem the per-
formance of public duties as' his
highest aim."
These provisions might well be ap-1

it is hardly likely that he will be much

ingly vulgar. My word! Very Siwash,
and that sort of thing.
We must get away from such dis-
gusting barbarism here at the darling
old maize-and-blue institution. Let us
make it traditional to form little tea
parties for the big games. Instead
of giving Michigan Locomotives, and
all of that rot, one would sit back
and sip one's tea, and murmur, "Isn't

though? And should the team be
so fortunate as to make a touch-1
down, it would be permissible to utter
quite distinctly such expressions as
"Cheerio," "Righto," and "Topping."
Not in a loud, hoarse, coarse manner
of course, but with just enough gusto
so that one's party would realize that
one had the true old Michigan spirit.
And all that. Of course, it would never
do to be heard across the field. That

So let's away with all this vulgar

MAN AND SUPERMAN, a review by |
Robert B. Henderson
There is no one like Shaw. There
is nothing so refreshing and intel-
lectually delightful than Shavian
comedy. His plays are packed with
all the typical ingrediants of a cer-
tain success and just enough of his
own peculiar brand of profound moral
satire-Scotch-Irish Presbyterian that
he is!-to make his audiences mad and
enthusiastic by turns. Of all the con-
temporary dramatists he must be the
surest author to become flattered as
the greatest interpreter of our age.
At eleven o'clock last evening the
performance of "Man and Superman"
was still a distance from its final
curtain, and so it was necessary to
miss the remarkable conclusion that
this article might go to press. But
the production was not a minute too
long-it could have run into the morn-
ing without boring the audience-and
what I was able to see was more than
adequate: it was a faithful picture of
Shaw's purpose. even more than that,
it was a remarkable opportunity for
the Cleveland players.
Carl Reid as the modern Don Juan,
named John Tanner for the occasion,
gave a perfect interpretation of his
part. So often it is the tendency of
the more sentimental directors to.
soften Shaw's characterizations and
degrade them to the images of a silly
eccentric old man. Emphatically Mr.
Reid and Mr. McConnel forbid such
a blunder, and the play as a result
emerged as an intensely vital and
fascinating composition.
The productions of the Repertory
Theatre, of course will be continued
next year. Unquestionably, even in a
few seasons, the organlization wiRl
shortly be able to continue each num-
ber from a single performance to
three or four presentations. Soon the
students as well as the faculty will
overcome their eternal apathy to-
wards such excellent work, and the
venture will take on distinctly un-
usual magnitude.
THE FRENCH PLAYS, reviewed by
Robert G. Ramsay.
Moliere's satirical comedy, "Lel
Medecin Malgre Lui" and Tristan's
"L'Anglais tel qu'on le parle" were
presented by the Cercle Francais Fri-j
day night in their annual productionI
on the campus. The Moliere play,
naturally a brilliant comedy, suffered{
from a slowness of action which mayI
be accountable to the fact that the
actors were using language entirely
foreign to them. I would not attempt
to find fault with their diction or pro-
nunciation; that is the task of a

At Harvard there is a growing senti-

sons of Harvard men seeking ad-

however, this suggestion is an un-
warranted, reflection on the calibre
of the sons of the Crimson. Surely,
if the sons of Harvard men cannot
hold their own on an equal footing
with those who are not Harvard-
born. they do not deserve to get in.
