terested in the latest venture in the
dramatic field in Boston,-the Stage1
Guild. This organization, which is
now beginning its third week at the
Peabody Play House, plans to produce,
for two weeks each a number of plays
which would otherwise never be seen
outside of New York. Such plays as!,
"Ambsh, with which the Guild op-
ened its season, "March Hares," which
it is playing with great success at
present, "The Deluge," by Henning j-
Berger, and Philip Moeler's "Sophie,"
which are coming in the next month,
would never find their way to any of
the larger Boston theatres. Only aE
limited public is interested in any-
thing besides musical comedy,-a pub-
[lic too small to attract the big-theatre
managers who know their business.'
At the tiny Peabody Play House, how-v
ever, this small, but discriminating;
minority can easily supply audiences
for the short runs of two weeks. And
since the Guild wants only enough to
pay expenses, it should be entirely suc-
cessful.

ers. In all fields of artistry has this
change of interest been manifested.
The public has -seen fit to recognize
works that are of permanent worth,
and to consider but lightly, those sen-
sational "masterpieces" which came
and went within the passing of a single
day.

The rain's long falling will not cease,
Like tears from the steadfast eye of[
life
It drips, nor ever pours. Decrease
Of day, and still the even strife
In Nature's bosum shakes the cloak
Of purple clouds that evening furls.
For Beauty's sake I'd stand and soak,
But the darned rain spoils my curls.

wrong that they should have Michigan

hing declaration was conveyed to University today is a building for thej

e students and faculty of Columbia
iversity by Nicholas Murray Butler,
esident of the institution, in his
lanksgiv:ng address before the stu-
nt body. Many of the nation's prom-
ent figures have stated this recently,
has been echoed from coast to coast,
it few if any of the d eclarations have,
und a remedy for the existing in-
ifliciency.
In the course of his address Presi-
nt Butler harked back to those glor-
us days of yore-the Victorian age
th-re were so many human
irits of many- ide(d capacity and
adersh'p. Ile praised the "great cap-
ins of the mind and soul in the age
Victoria," and deplored the absence
this generation of a great voice
polnt the way to a solution of the
oeld's problems. Literary figures,
atesmen, scientists are not of the
libre of those who led the world in
e golden age. Yet, lie declared, there
re more men and women receiving a
.gher education today than at any
rme in the history of western civiliza-
:n.
Alas, for the days that are past!?
ich an harangue reminds one of the,
er-recurring complaints against the
,unger generation, descending slow'v
:t certainly to the depths of moral
id physical turpitude, which are in-
riably accompanied by references to
, time when "we were young." No
te would venture to doubt the single
sertion that the age of England's
rninlne ruler produced great men, su-
rb leaders, but is a cont'nued refer-
ce to the glories of the past warran-
d ? It can have but little influence. in
reducing intellectual giants for the-
ture.
In referring to the great masses of
ople who are being educated in our
stitutions of higher learning, how-

women. While plans are under way
to provide them with a building in
which they may office their different
activities and their committees, every
possible thing is being done to com-
plete this building fund, still, there is
great need for immediate relief of the
tension. -
One of the most noticeable indica-
tions of this crying need is seen in
the crowded conditions of Barbour
Gymnasium. Here four offices must
be crowded into one in the parlors of
the building; the expanding gymnas-
ium classes must be conducted in the
parlors, the corrective room of the
first floor, and even with this wide
distribution of the numbers, the room
is not sufficient to accommodate.
Large dancing classes must be con-
ducted in the small parlors which are
hardly large enough to permit one
person to dance. Meanwhile, in the
assistant dean of women's office arel
crowdedthe assistant dean's desk, the
Women's League secretary's desk, and
the Women's athletic association of-
fice.
Sarah Caswell Angell hall has been #
pressed into use as a lecture room for
university classes due to the crowded
conditions throughout the campus; and
thus the women are forced to give up
this auditorium for meeting. Condi-
tions will remain this way until the
University, of ┬░Michigan Women's
League building is erected, and put to
use. n the meantime, with the crowd-.
ed conditions of buildings on the
campus, full justice cannot be done to
the classes.
