1.The story of the relation of Alsace-
Lorraine to France is one of the most
dramatic in the world's history. For
many decades there has been an ar-
dent loyalty to the mother ccuntry,
and nearly lifty years of German
domination failed to stifle tha devotion
to French ideals so characteristic of
the people. Innumerable instancesI

of union. A Catholic clergy was un-
tiring in its efforts to kep alive in
the masses the spark of hope for a re-
newal of intimate contact between the
two peoples.
With the conclusion of the Great
War came the realization of all these
hopes and the opening of the golden
chapter in the life of the Alsaciens-
Lorrains. An amalgamation almost
without parallel was brought about.)
In the months immediately following
the reunion, there were unavoidablel
misunderstandings, both because of
the long separation and the lack of
easy means of 'communication with the
French capital, but at no time was
there any serious friction. Mutual
concessions resulted in the passage I
of many laws without preliminary
public discussion. Indeed it is said
by competent judges that the single

11. G. Wells, in his new book, "A
Year of Prophesying," says that after
writing a series of articles in a year,
and having to turn them out when
they were called for, he has acquired
a great hatred of periodicity-and a
coincident admiration of journalists.
But let me tell you, gentle readers,
that H. G. doesn't know the half of
it. He wrote, I think, about seventeent

"CASTLES IN SPAIN"
A reveiw by Robert Henderson.
Some two days before "Castles In
Spain" opened I received the follow-
ing anonymous letter: "I am dying to
see what you will have to say about
the Junior Girls' so-called Play. The
rehearsals shows that it is one of the
poorest performances ever-in every
way-especially the direction." Later
it became obvious that the note had
been sent, not by a jealous girl, but
by a gentleman intimately connected
with the production who should have
been more discreet about his pen-
manship.
He was wrong: that should be de~i-
nite and clear. The Junior Girls' Play
is not a poor production, it is much
better than "Thank You, Madame,"
and no doubt fully superior in every
vital point to the Michigan Union
Opera.
You see, such amateur performances
require abias; there are one hundred
and fifty, two hundred girls, at least
six of whom you know personally.
There you are: six girls you know
personally . . '. what difference if they
are self-conscious or out of step or
weighted down with patch-work make-
up?
Nevertheless. one point is positive.
"Tickled To Death" may have been
heavy, slow and cumbersome, but
from actual experience I know that
the- lines, stupid as they may have
been, drew more laughs from the
audience than those in the production
Saturday afternoon. In all my at-
tendance on the theatre I have never
seen such an appaling quantity of
lines fall so fiat. without even a saving
snicker.
The actual fact is that the book was
anemic, artificial-with the important
exception of the agent who was gen-
uine and what is called comic-but
the fault does not lie with the three
authors credited on the program. Al-
though it may be telling tales out of
school, "Castles In Spain" in actual
performance is really the work-"the
revision," the. committee politely calls
it-of a prominent member of the
faculty, the creator of a charming
French chef, but not and never a
dramatist. Possibly his plots may be
sallowly ingenious, but his dialogue
with its interminable speeches which
an experienced director would have
ruthlessly pruned is utterly unfit for
a musical comedy.
There was, however, this much
grandly to the play's credit: the
dances in the final half were fast and
without exception very well conceived.
The Syncopated Soldiers were design-
ed to be awkward-a convenient in-
novation--tle principals in "Love
Lives Only a Day" were charming,
and the conventional Spanish dancers
-Boleros, they called themselves--
were patly exotic according to the
requisite musical comedy traditions.
And certain of the actors were more
than excellent: Lucy Domboorajian
Mabel Crotty, Alberta Olsen in a per-
fect bit as the Matador, above all the
girl who played Bob. There must also
be Mary Van Buren and Mary Lou
Miller, Margaret Effinger and the di-
rector. She was worth shooting all
the fire-works for; to her I make a
final, sweeping bow . .

Christopher Morley's "Rehearsals,"
Ernest Dowson's "Pierrot of the Min-

of an artist, the constant artist and
his legend of eternity, while "Voices"
tells of Jean d'Arc, her visions, and
her modern challenge to . youth-at
least, such an idealistic tendency.

department, comes in with a most
gloomy and shocking tale of the dou-
ible-dealing Junior Girls. It was this
way:

IThe Boy Henderson arranged that
the Girls should have the following
publicity: A month and a half of ad-
vance notices, a front page story every
day during the week of the perform-
ance, and a review of every perform-
ance. In return for these. great fa-
vor,. the Junior Girls offered The
Daily Editorial staff eighteen passes.
The Boy Henderson, realizing that the
Junior Girls were not on the same,
fianancial footing as the Opera, gal-
lantly declined three of the passes,
thinking that he would be able to get
along all right on fifteen.
Three days later he discovered that
he would need two more. He asked
the Junior Girls if he could have twoI
m ilrore, and lie was told that he could
have three if lie wanted them. At
one-thirty p. m. yesterday he asked
the Junior Girls once more for the
extra passes, and was told that theyI
would be at the box office whenever
he wanted them.
The Boy Henderson attended the
matinee performance, and stopped
after the show to get the tickets at
the office. He was then told that he
couldn't have them---that the Junior
Girls did not propose to be dictated to
by The Daily..He inquired if the house
was sold out for Saturday night, and
was told that it was "nowhere near."
The hooker is that these jolly girls
changed their minds after The Daily

The University
of Hard Knocks
The good old American institution "The University of
Hard Knocks" is still functioning as it did back in the days
that your father likes to talk about.
Present educational advantages may have tended to
reduce the number and strength of the "knocks" but they
haven't reduced them to zero yet. So if life has been run-
ning along smoothly for you, you may feel certain that just
around the corner, after graduation, you are due for a new
slant on life.
In this school of Hard Knocks you learn things you
never otherwise would learn. Ability to recognize and act
upon, sound advice, a proper sense of values and plenty of
good common sense will in a measure cut down the numler
of bumps you get, but they will never relieve you from then
entirely. You may think you can get through life without
them. Discretion may keep you out of a great deal of
difficulty, but it is just as impossible to get along without
breathing as' to go through life without at least a few good
substantial jolts to make you know you are alive. They are
inevitable.
So when yours comes, as they will come, meet them
bravely. Don't become discouraged and give up the fight.
Remember you are only getting what every other man that
has ever lived has had to take. They are a part of life.
Hold your temper. Keep your mouth closed. Hit things
hard. Eventually you will come out on top. If you do, it
will be your making. Remember, he who gives up is lost.

"NOT SO LONG AGO"
The Players Club has chosen as its
annual public production Arthur Rich-
man's three-act comedy, "Not So Long
Ago." The piece was a marked suc-
cess on Broadway two seasons ago,
and should be a skilfull choice for theI
present performance. The cast, while
not finally selected, will include Dale
Shafer, Phyllis Loughton, and June
Kinsley Simpson, and the date has
been placed during the first weeks of
May.
