their own motives and without theI
coercion of new laws.
It was precisely this failure on the 1
part of the general public to over-
throw that admittedly undesirable in-
stitution, the open saloon, that caused
the passage of the prohibition amend-
ment. It is this same inertia, largely
in the Southern states, in enactingE
adequate child labor laws that aroused
the sentiment for the national Child'
Labor Amendment. While for the time;
the last mentioned piece of legislation
has been defeated, the people have
been aroused and unless they move
to correct the existing evils of their
own volition, they will be compelled
to do so by law.
The ideal situation, of course, would
be one in which there would be no;
need for government through public'
action, one in which individuals would'
see and accept new and advanced
standards of living. One glance at the
front page of any metropolitan daily
paper will convince one that this stage
has not yet arrived in the United
States. And until it does, such meas-
ures as prohibition and child labor
laws will be necessary.

of course, that we should be full of

There was just one question in
Life's Question contest that really in-
spired us to the point where we might'
have written a hot answer. And that
was the question, "Which is the worst
city in the United States?" We are
reconciled to the fact that we didn't,
enter the contest, however, by the
fact that the money went to a guy
that nominated Detroit.
Detroit is exactly the city we had
in mind for the honor ourself. It is
the ugliest, dullest, and most indus-
trious city in the country, and we are
glad that it has'been marked so in a
national gazette.

A review, by Jason Cowles.
In the first act of "For All Of Us"
this millionaire is very ill, see, and is
tired of his wife and in love with his
snurse. Well he is just about ready to
'go away, with his nurse when an old
workman comes in and tells him that
he would get well if he would stop sin-
ning and "kick the old devil in the
In the second act the workman ex-
plains some more about. the sinning
how dirt in a. man's mind shows in his
body like dirt in a glass bottle he said,
and the millionaire begins to see what
he's driving at. In the third act the
{millionaire reads the Bible and gets
out of his wheelchair and walks!
Well then his son marries the nurse,
who turns out to be the long-lost
daughter of the old workman, Mr.
Griswold, and the millionaire and his
wife love each other again.
William Hodge played the part of
the workman and talked very funny.
He was just like a fellow in a vaude-
ville monologue. He wore clothes that
didn't fit him and talked Irish and
stuttered just like he wasn't acting at
all. Charlotte Wynters was the nurse
and she was awful pretty. I remember
once she said to the millionaire's son.
"I don't feel very well" and he said
"Oh I'm so sorry" and she said "Please
don't be sorry" kind of sad-like. She
was fine.
Henry Ford, the big Detroit manu-
facturer, said lie thought the play was
the best play he had ever seen and I
think it's probably the best play he's
ever seen too.

"IVAN 1O!"
A review, by Robert Mansfield.
"Ivan Ho!", probably intended as a
sprightly musical comedy by its spon-
sors, although they hesitate to identify
it as such on the program, is the
twenty-seventh annual production by
the Haresfoot club of the University
of Wisconsin. The Haresfoot club is
designed to resemble Mimes, and with
this information by way of introduc-
tion, the review may begin.

of Otis Skinner, the

famous comedian, in his latest produc-

evening, May 2, in the Whitney the-

attraction booked in Ann Arbor for
some seasons, produced under the di-
rection of Richard Boleslawsky and
with settings by James Reynolds. The1
title, by the way, is pronounced "San-
