it was a double victory for the Ameri-

To The Editor:-
There is always the time, place and
occasion for everything. But some-
times, usurping apparently our God-
given bits of brains, we will, whether
from blundering, bungling or the
senile, allow ourselves to be enveigled
into a course which common sense
would detain us from pursuing.
Flaming forth into apparently two
iery crosses, four pieces of burning
wood forming two right angles, set
ip by Klansmen, illuminated the far-
ther slope of Sleepy Hollow immedi-
lately following the speech delivered
by Mr. Denby at the Cap Night cere-
monies. Whether these four pieces
of wood were sacrificed for the pur-
pose of hurling defiance at the former
secretary, or for saving the crew
upon some island, (a signal to passing
vessels as we read about in books),
or with the idea that the time, place
and occasion were fitting for the K.
K. K. to allow itself a bit of propa-
ganda, will probably remain hidden
in their cranial receptive faculties.
But whether it was done with the
spirit of defiance, or rescue, or pro-
paglanda, the act itself, it must be
asserted was beautifully proper. It
was indeed so beautifully proper that
how else could it but breath from a,
mind that would receive an A plus
average, the four subjects he is taking
yielding, A plus for senileness, A plus
for senileness, A plus for senileness,
and A plus for senileness. (If the
dictionary does not contain the last
word, what is the difference, it also
is so beautiful). The entire troubleE
is that such occasion as Cap Night
arises but annually and not four times
a year.
But you, students, who mumbled,}
"tear it down, tear it down," you for-r
got that it was a symbol of the white-
bedecked Klansmen, (the\ white for
purity), and that it also stood for
100 per cent Americanism. You ex-
ecuted your plan of proceeding enj
masse and tearing it down so nobly1
that you too must be awarded the,
medal of honor, let us say the Ameri'I
can medal Mr. Denby was speaking;
about, It is given to those who are
courageous and uphold the standards
of Americanism in performing some
worth while duty.

of course of the shallowness of many
of our Washington representatives;
they are not men of indepen'lent %ind
and thought, but vote as tleir party
desires for fear of losing favor and
a possible reelection to office. There-
fore, what can one expect in the way'
of true constructive work from suchj
a body? At the most, as is evident,
not very much.
The soldier bonus bill should not
have been passed at this time. The
time for such an aid was immediately
after the close of the war-that was!
the psychological momont, and the
time when it would have accomplished
a world of good. Today, many of
the men who might have benefiteds
are no more; the majority of those
who are, if able bodied, are working
and have long since settled them-
selves to life's tasks and obligations.
TlIe money that they will receive
as a result of the passage of the bonus
bill Will mean infinitely less to them
than it would have meant four years
ago. They are little interested at pre-j
sent, for they have passed the climaxj
of their need.
And the additional taxes spoken of.
They will come of course from the
veteran and from his neighbor as
well as from the few who can easily
afford to pay the whole of the bonus
awards. Taking money out of one
pocket and placng it with a smile
into the other is the process, and a
fairly insincere one.
The soldier bonus bill is one of
the most subtle of contempory poli-
tical moves.
The K. K. K. is fast becoming an
organization of strength hereabouts.
The latest reports have it that there
is already listed a membership of
some eight persons in the University
of Michigan chapter, and that two.
more men are waiting to be initiated.
We tremble as we think of the hor-
rible happenings that are soon to

The LaFollette forces will soon be

"Michigan's - best - chance - to - be- I
come - famous" after G. D. E.-they
are producing Donald Snyder and
Charles Sword's "La Donna e Mobile"
this evening as the continuation off
this program.
They are wise, however, in includ-
ing a standard work in the bill to
save the performance, should the
premiere play; by any possible chance,
prove a "flop"-as we say in the pro-
fession. This is a difficulty which
the Dodos, now blossomed into a
larger title and theatre, might pro-
fitably recognize. No one objects to
original dramas, even to the out-
bursts from the department of Jour-
nalism, if seasoned with occasional
recognized compositions; but a steady
stream of ambitious experiments, pro-
blem plays and the like.. but then
again, perhaps the less said on these 4
subjects the better.
As for "La Donna e Mobile," the
authors seem relatively bashful. The
plot, according to their guarded ad-
mission, revolves about a Hazel with
a Dulcy comlex, a poet Italienne, and
a maid to expound the exposition.
You should be warned, how ver, that
it is decidedly unepigramatic and
probably unsophisticated-at least, j
