That it should be necessary for so

point out that the League of Nations

It is significant that those who oppose

TRIE WINNERS
Once more the Republican party
s been literally swept to victory
id power by an overwhelming major-
y. The public Tuesday signified its
)proval of Republican policies and
pressed confidence in the ability of
>olidge and Dawes and other. Re-
ablican leaders to bring the country
ack to an healthy prosperity.
The fact that the decision of the
ople- was so decisive should place
quietus on the tactics of those
)liticians whose principal activity
ring the campaign has been either
denunciation of existing govern-
ental institutions or destructive crit-
ism of administrative policies. The
ate indicates that the majority of
inking people reject iLaFolette's
hemes for abolishing the supreme
urt and for the governmental con-
ol of public utilities, that they have
en satisfied with Coolidge's handling
alleged corrupt officials involved
the Teapot dome scandal.
In this expression of confidence,
>wever, the Republicans should find
warning. Their gr.eat majority was
>t due solely to the effectiveness of
eir policies or the calibre of their
aders. The Democratic party was
eakened by internal srife, by a fail-
e to enunciate a definite and effec-
re program of progress. Its vote in
veral states was reduced by the
roads of the "Progressives." Indeed,
was one of the surprises of the
action that the newly-formed party
idered the chances of the Democrats
ore than those of the Republicans.

ssful partly because of a reasonably

A review, by Sidney Faites.
When it comes to a matter of rip-
ping, and that is essentially what the
third of the four plays given by Play
Production last night consisted of, it
is high time that the presentation be
shortened. "The Impertinence Of The
Creature" was really a much needed
breathafter the almost intense atmos-
phere created by "Martha's Mourning,"
the skit that preceded it, and Margaret
Ainsworth and Valentine Davies who
made up the entire cast deserve praise
for the efficient manner in which they
carried through the swift moving con-
versation.

'

But to come back to "Martha's
Mourning" which had the makings of
the best number of the evening.
Ludema Williams, who played the part
of the dying aunt, had the situation
at her finger tips, and had she but
made full use of the chance, the play-
let might have been extremely im-
pressive. The voice was the instru-
ment, and it failed to give forth pleas-
ing music. A slight touch of stagecraft
would have made all the difference in
the world. Most out of place in this
scene was the up to date brick fire-
place, set against a foreground of
poverty. It is so decidedly unreal, and
could have been fully remedied by the
substitution of a small round pak
stove. Mildred Boyce, as The Neigh-
bor, completed the cast.
Mary Van Buren, as Kathryn, in
"For Distinguished Service," the last
of the four plays, gave the most sat-.
isfactory character portrayal of the
evening. It was more mature, more
lifelike, and showed a greater sen-
sitiveness to the part undertaken than
any of the others expressed. At odd
moments, although it seems to this
reviewer that it was not a conscious
acting, Sybil Clark put in a touch of
a type of modern woman that was con-
vincing and which had a punch to It.
But then, all of us are continually
doing things that we do not at the
moment realize to be extraordinary,
and because we are unable to grasp
them and hold-on to them forever and
forever is precisely the reason that
most of us leave this earth without
ever having attained heights beyond
that with which we came into this
earth except for actual physical stat-
ure. We quite envied Virginia Cronin,
the Maid, in her earnest desire to par-
take of the chocolates. It might be
added that the furnishings used for
this play were worthy of comment,
and that, only favorable.
"Sweethearts," the dear Gilbertj
story, opened the program, and it
must be admittedhthat except for sev-
eral touches in the second act it was
not unusual. RobertsHenderson, as
Spreadbrow, was both good and bad,
-bad because he did not set a standard
for himself which he could have main-
tained with little or no effort.
THE BAND BOUNCE
A review, by Robert Mansfield.
There have been times, according
to a _ report in The Daily recently,
when attending a Band Bounce was
a guarantee of spending a pleasant
evening, regaled with the joyous per-
formance of various campus cele-
brities. To quote the immortal cartoon-
ist "Them days is gone forever."
It is through no lack of apprecia-
tion of Mr. Wuerth's kindness in con-
tributing that the presence of outside
talent must be deplored. It simply
did not fit, either in Hill auditorium
or in a traditional University func-
tion. The evening was saved from
utter failure by the presence on the
program of the Band itself, and N. D.
Smith, '26D, with his pleasing collec-
tion of sleight of hand tricks. Perhaps
they were not polished, but environ-
ment hasa great deal of influenceon
the mental attitude in such cases.
The Band needs no comment. They
played well, hampered by the empti-
ness of the auditorium which resulted
in confusing echoes. It was a distinct
relief that they played between each
of the vaudeville skits presented, con-
traryto the program.
Chief among objections to the
Wuerth acts were that they were
typically professional vaudeville, and
not particularly in the class of very
highly elevated vaudeville at that. I
have never seen a more incongruous
sight than a comedian trotting breezily
across the stage of Hill auditorium
wearing red topped galoshes and a
brilliant scarlet derby. Nearly as dis-
concerting was a lullaby sung with all
the power of a well developed pair of
lungs, supplemented from time to time
by another equally, powerful and rauc-
ous voice.
Some one of the teams, it is impos-
sible to say which one, so garbled
was the program, presented a very
Scottish bit in a broad Kerry brogue.

The piece was saved to some extent
by a violation of the child labor law
when a youngster came on to recite
painfully memorized lines and -to be
swung around in the air by the sup-
posed Scotchman.
Smith, with his bag of tricks, pro-
vided the real entertainment of the
evening. He was so patently one of the
University, that he at once captured
the good will of the audience. His

THE LEAGUE OR A LEAGUE
To the Editor:
The undisclosed freshman whose
communication appeared in Tuesday's
Daily furnishes an excellent example
of the sort of half-educated, emotional
criticism of the League of Nations
which has been rampant in this coun-
try for the last four years and which
has been chiefly responsible for
America's present ignominious posi-
tion in international affairs.
After violently affirming that Theo-
dore Roosevelt opposed American
membership in the League of Nations
as now constituted, your correspon-
dent solemnly avers in the approved
fashion, that he is in favor of world
peace and a League of Nations, but
not the League of Nations. He pro-
nounces Dr. Irving Fisher's statement
that Roosevelt favored the League
"just as illogical as to assert that we
must all be Baptists, Catholics or Jews
because we believe in some form of
Christianity." Passing over the unique
suggestion that Judaism is a species
of Christianity, it is proper to point
out that your correspondent has
drawn an analogy where none eists

Mbai aL sen mentany yis views
had opposed the changing of the name,
as he was an agriculturist "bred in the
bone." But the name of a college
should not be a misnomer. This is
decidedly the truth in the case of the
Aggies. For some time now, the agri-
cultural department has had only
one-fourth of the students. The home
economics division, alone, has twice
the number of students that the divi-
sion of agriculture has. Those who
have given a great deal of thought to
this question have come to feel that
it is only fair to almuni who have {
graduated from departments other
than that of agriculture to change the
name of the college to something
which will give a true impression of
the college.
Considering the fact that many of
the other states in the Union have 1
both universities and state colleges,
is the so-called "duplication of effort"
such a mistake? For instance, the cost
of transferring the M. A. C. engineer-
ing division to the University of Mich-
igan is prohibitive and highly imprac-
ticable. Yet the engineering school1
here in Ann Arbor could hardly take1
care of all the students in the state
of Michigan who wish to take the
course. There is room in Michigan for
two such colleges.,
