For the past three years, M. Clemen
ceau has devoted all his waning ener-
gies to the completion of what he con-
siders the fruit of the meditations of
his lifetime. He declares that it is
purely philosophical and contains no
single reference to great political
events, but it is evident that its gen-
eral nature will be similar to that of
the published reflections of other na-
tional and international figures.
This prodigious undertaking is typ-
ical of the spirit of the author. Since
his entrance into public affairs, his
tireless en.ergy and fearless enthus-
iasm have been famous. In the course
of his life he has been an agitator, a I
radical, and a conservative-fighting
with a strength that usually over-
whelmed his enemies. The literary
effort of such a personality is bound
to be interesting and might even be a
classic. Certainly it will be uncon-

With the coming of general educa-
tion and enlightment for the people of
America has come a corresponding
sentiment that has broken down many
of the barriers between the different
creeds and sects of religion. The
Inter-Church World Movement, while
it itself a seeming failure, was the
first step toward a unification of all
religions which center about the life
and teachings of Jesus Christ. The
Federal Council of the Churches of
Christ in America has been the sec-
ond step toward a cosmopolitan re-
ligion. And the recent joint service
of the people of many beliefs in the
Cathedral of St. John the Divine in
New York may prove to be a third
great development.
In the campaign. slogan for funds
to complete this huge undertaking,
"A house of prayer for all people,"
there may be seen the influence of this
ever-growing tendency toward unifi-
cation. At the service last Sunday
Rev. S. Parkes Cadman, pastor of the
Central Congregational Church, Brook
lyn, was preaching in an Episcopal
cathedral to an audience made up of
3;500 people including not only Epis-
copalians, Baptists, Congregational-
ists, Presbyterians, Methodists, and
other divisions of Protestants, but also
Catholics, Jews, Japanese, Chinee
and Negroes.
As was pointed out during the serv-
ice, more similar gatherings for the
purpose of worshipping Jesus Christ,

To the Editor:
The dead letter office is to the
minds of most of us, a realm of mys-
tery. What romances are there! What{
tales of missing men, what black plots,
what a panorama of worldly failures,
what heartbreaks would one find

Mr. Editor, for the Bulletin items, or
their expansion and degeneration. But
someone is.
This morning I picked up my Daily
and turned eagerly to the list of un-
claimed letters. Perhaps....
I can appreciate the desire on the,
part of the University to discourage
the vague addressing of letters to the
general public, in its care. This
morning's list contained 20 names;
actually most of these were recog-
nizable at once as those of faculty
members. Four were full professors.
Picture the reaction of the dignitary
who last week addressed a letter to
"F. .N. Scott, University of Michigan,"
when that same letter is returned to
him March 22, smeared with a purple
rubber stamp, "unclaimed."
Very truly yours,

TONIGHT: "Castles in Spain," the
21st annual Junior Girls' Play at 8:U
o'clock in the Whlitiney thearo.
* * *
A review, by Robert Mansfield.
It is a decided pleasure to attend a
performance frankly purporting to be
amateur but in which almost the only
evidence of such a trait exist in the
spontaneous light-heartedniess with
which the various players take their
parts. I went to "Castles in Spain"
expecting to see choruses fight their
way through occasional stumbles,
singing out of time, out of tune and
out of breath, and forcing smiles of
sickly saccharinity. Instead I thor-
oughly enjoyed a quite finished pro-
duction enlivened here and there by
the minor and decidedly human slips
which should characterize the best
college show.
Of the music, two numbers were
especially outstanding, "Love Only
Lives for Today," and "Phi Upon
Dates." The former was the undeni-
able hit of the show, sung by the six
juvenile leads without benefit of
chorus, it was recalled again and
again to the frank delight of the audi-
ence. "Phi Upon Dates," a catchy1
tune in itself, was made better by ex-
cellent chorus work and the really un-
usual dancing of Dorothy Kraus. Her
number was the most profe. sional
touch of the evening.
To Margaret Effinger, in the part
of Mr. Billings, should go the laurel
for interpretation of the part assigned
her. As the wary bachelor of wealth
she was convincing and wholly ade-
quate. Miguel, played by Alberta 01-
~en provided more sheer comedy per
) ,,than any other player, while the
professors won the sympathetic
amusement of the audience from the
Some unfortunate error in the pro-
gram denies me the privilege of nam-
ing Mary Van Buren's touch of real
pathos which added much to the
charm of the second act. She "talk-
ed" a song with as much real feeling
as I ever recall having heard. For a
moment there was the emphatic feel-
ing that she had put herself too thor-
oughly into her part, and that the
strain had resulted in hysteria.
Throughout the performance she car-
ried her role of leading lady in splen-
did shape. Vivacious, smiling, con-
science-stricken or deeply in love, she
made a wholly charming heroine.
Mary Lou Miller in the part of Jose
quite outdid herself. It was unfor-
tunate that her effective entrance at
the beginning of the second act was
marred by the continued applause of
the audience following the musical
number which immediately preceded.
She really smokes a cigarette most
convincingly, and her gesture in ex-
tinguishing it was laughable. Her re-1
cently acquired Spanish accent also,
deserves mention.
There is really some plot to "Castles
in Spain." 'Ithere is litt'le enough so,
that the musical numbers need not
fear interference, and yet sufficient to

It seems that women students at the
University of Oregon are-given acad-
emic credit for horseback riding
While an intensive study of the
theory and practice of horseback rid-
in- -and-its -kindred courses-is
doubtless of value to those among us
who are preparing to be horse thieves
or jo kies, there is, nevertheless, a feel-
ing among some of us that horseback
riding is out of place in the curricu-
lum of a literary college. It is the r
tendency among the newer school of
pedagogues to root for utilitarianism,
but, as someone has said, there is such
a thing as carrying a thing too far.
Here in our own university we have
at least one example of this modern
educational tendency. On page 233
et seq. of the annual announcement
of the College of Literature, Science
andl the Arts, are named a number of
courses in Military Science and Tac--
tics (M. S. and T. 1: A general course
of lectures and practical work in In-;
fantry Drill Regulations and Mark- I
manship). Now, there is no objection
to a complete and comprehensive'
series of courses in rhythmic. walk-
Ing and shooting one another; in fact,
there are doubtless many bellicose
individuals on the campus who yearn
to march behind the R. O. T. C. and
who, get a savage joy in presenting
arms. Our point is that they should
not be allowed to count toward a de-
gree of Bachelor of Arts. The two
things don't mix. Let us repeat that
Military Science has its value (for
those who appreciate it) just as much
as has the study of Romance Lan-
guages. Buti that they should both be
squeezedl into an "Arts" curriculum
seems stretching the point a bit.
If the tendency continues we shall
soon be graduating Bachelors of Arts
with Special Distinction in Soft Shoe
Dancing, and Masters of Arts in Oral

personally, I spent a most. enjoyable
afternoon. It is such a treat to be
able to sfit clown and forger exams
and such like things for a little while,
under such pleasant circumstances.
The program opened with "Allegro
con fuoco" by de Boeck. Light, ro-
mantic, charming. Then came a mo-
ment of peace, and a poetical trans-
portation away from everyday affairs.
We were no longer in a large, empty
auditorium, but in a dark, cool, quiet
cathedral. "The Legend" of D)eLa
