A reviw, by John (aringhonse.
At the risk of incurring tie wrath;
of all those indefatigable persons who
would back a Union opera, good or in-1
different, the reviewer is about to
make a rash statement: there is no
comparison between this year's Junior
Girls' play and the curent produiictioni
of Mimes-the forumer is far superior.
This is not admitted grudgingly. Nei-
ther is it the fatuous raving of one1
intrigued with a beautiful brunette
in the Castillian chorus.' It is what
is known by more or less stpid in-
dividuals as a statement of fact.
There are numerous bases for this
comparison. Both productions have
a foreign setting--h Spanish is more!
convincing. Each took a fling into the
precarious realm of college humor-
last night's burlesque was at thunes
amusing. Inevitably both produc-
tions used choruses--wometn can al- !
ways dance better, especially thie
"flee hop." But enough of this..
"Castles in Spain" has several good
leads and two om' three stars. In the
latter class, the unlquestionablhe lader
is Mary Lou Miller as Jose. She is
the personification of all that Ameri-
cans have beeni led to believe is typical
of p~assionate Spanish youth. She has
a. never-faltering accent (of sonic
variety or other), she s a convincing
lover, she is charming! Hrs is as
finished a bit of acting azs has been
seen in campus dramnatics. M~arquerite
Ainsworthi ma kes the nmost of a decid-
edly hackneyed conmic role; Alberta
Olson as Miguel (delivers a superb
declamnation on a hull fight; and Mfr-
garet Ettinger is nigh perfect as Mr.
Billings. The feminine intrepreta-
tions are almost equally good, thoungi
certainly not as difficult.
The staging is not perfect, but it is
nevertheless adequiate, quaite remark-
able considering the limitedl resources
at the commnantd of those in charge.
T.here is the chorus's; sual awkward-
ness in getting on andl off tie stage;
therec is an occasional-all t0 occas-
ional -mistep ; thea spotlight fails often
to reach its proper (destination --all of
which is immaterial when the prouc-
tion is avowedly amateur and makes
no pretension toward the splendor of
the annual Broadway revues.
It would lie possible to comtinue this
dissertion indefinitely--there is much
to talk about. One must mention the
music with its occasional touches of
inspiration like "Love Only Lives for
Today"; the specialty numbers, tie
outstanding being the Syncopated
uoldiers --for once anl original dance
in a college theatrical ; and the wellI
writtenm book. lBt for the rest of our
days we shall reimemner the ''man''
who so carefully pulled up his knick-
ce's to keep the knees frout gtting
b~aggy. Such is the virtue of feminine
implersonation of masculine habits.
"'rilEl',HTZ R VUEl'"
A review, by Thomas P1. ienry, Jr.
Flassard Short in his broadly adver-
tised "Ritz Revue," now playing at theI
Shubert-Det roit Opera IHouse, has ne-
glected one highly implortant clement
in his elaborate production; having
assembled a compelling, satisfyingI
show, lie completely forgot the niees-'
sity of reasonable humor.
The long and lanky Chamlott
Greenwood, who has become the star
for pu1b icity purposes, does little more
than lend her considerable reputa-
tioni, anid the t hree other alleged co-
edians are atrocious. Aside front one
screamingly funny bath scnce, very
risque by the way. Miss Greenwood
does nothing but sing several songs

jokes they offer, smiutty, as: they a re,

T].here is, however, much to praise
in the production from the piurely re-

In addition, there was the chorus--

and b)est of all, the Ritz boys who were
