It is only fitting that Cornell should
compete with Michigan when the first
intercollegiate meet is held in the
Yost Field house tonight. The ath-
letic relation between the two schools
is of long standing and has always
held a position of first importance. '
The only regret of the University
in welcoming the track team from the
East is thait the opportunity is not
afforded more often. Nothing would
better please -the Michigan student
body than close relation with Cornell
in every form of student activity. The
annual track meets, it is to be hoped,
will form a basis for renewal of the
competition of former days.
Thirty long years ago a brilliant
young orator naned William Jennings
Bryan sprang full-grown into the
midst of a national convention of the
Democratic party. In a burst of en-
thusiasm he swept the gathering with
his ideas on free silver. But that was
the end of it.
Slowly but surely down through the
decades William has become one of
the traditions of the Democratic par-
ty, as was so clearly demonstrated
during the last presidential campaign
when he tried to come back through
Brother Charlie.
But this young wizard with words
has not wasted his sweetness upon the
desert air for the past three decades.
Instead of fading into oblivion with
the Democrats he turned his oratori-
cal guns upon the theory of evolution,
stressing the point that HE never
descended from a moneky. Also, in-
stead of the desert he picked up tho
wilderness of Tennessee wherein to
spread the perfume of his petals.
Here his efforts have not been
wasted for the Tennessee legislature
has just passed a measure prohibiting
the teaching of evolution in the public
schools, normal colleges, and univer-
sities of the state. Now the point is
not that Bryan and, the Tennessee
legislature are at all in the right inj
the matter of evolution. There areI
thousands of people who disagree, in-
cluding the newly formed Science
League of America, which numbers
among its members such men asj
Luther Burbank, and David Starr!
Obviously the only significance inJ
the whole affair is that William has

Final arrangements have just been
completed to present Ernistine Schu-
mann-Heink Tuesday evening, April
28, in the auditorium of the Masonic
Temple. Madame Schumann-Heink,
although she has been on the concert
and operatic stage for more than
twenty-five years, is said still to retain
the full contralto richness of her
voice. For her recent recital in Or-
chestra hall, Detroit, the auditorium
was sold out even to a capacity stand-
ing-room, the stage was filled with
some three hundred additional seats,
and from four to five hundred people
were turned away.
Her astonishing vigor and the con-
stant quality of her voice have be-
come the sensation of recent musical
seasons. In addition to her numerous1
concert engagements she has been en-
gaged by the management of the
Metropolitan Opera house to appear in
several of her famous Wagnerianl
roles this spring, and her recital last
month in New York city was received
with unusual enthusiasm by the1

John Corbin, at the time the dra-
matic critic of the New York Times,
wrote the following review of "Out-
ward Bound," which Comedy Club is
to present at the Whitney theatre
Wednesday and Friday evening, April
1 and 3:
"Something rather extraordinary
happened last night. A play about
death, all of the characters of which
have passed beyond, caught the atten-
tion of a New York audience, enlisted
its sympathy, amused in genuinely
and genially, and ended by stirring i.
to very considerable depths of human
pity and pathos.
"If there are any people'who object
that 'Outward Bound' lacks theologic
authority, one will be inclined to agree
with them. Sutton Vane, its author,
is sa.id to be an English actor, who has
written many plays, none of them bril-
liantly remembered. But this play
has been well spoken of in London by
those who should know, and is very
successful with its audiences.
"The single scene of its three acts I
is the bar and smoking room of a
small liner. The people who assem-
ble seem quite normal folk and in
point of fact do not at first know their
condition. Sutton Vane's Beyond has
points of resemblance with that of
Conan Doyle. A part of the drama of
the little play, and also of its com-
edy, lies in the different processes by
which they come to realize what has
happened to them.They are troubled
by the fact that they do not know just
how they came aboard or what port
they are bound for. Aside from the
steward, who serves drinks at the
bar, there are no crew, no officers.
And there are no lights to port or
starboard. They are sailing in the(
dark, a chartless sea.
"The steward explains that lie is a
'half-way.' One does not know at
first just what he means except that
he has presided at some 5,000 such

trips. But he is very friendly if a
little sad. The first of his customers
at the bar is an amiably bibulous and
inwardly distracted lad ,who serves to
develop the foibles of a pompous and
insolent dowager and an equallyi
pompous ,hard-boiled M. P.{
"There is also a motherly, cockney!
char-woman. The dowager is sur-
prised to find such folk aboard, and is I
outraged upon learning that on this
ship there is no steerage, that all the
passengers are of one class. As the
play progresses, a very intimate bond
