FRIDAY, MAY 15, 1925
Night Editor-ROBERT T. DE VORE


The 'campus electionsa

are over.

Four years ago we might have said
that we are about to go "back to
normalcy." Four score and ten years
ago we might have said "To the vic-f
tors belong the spoils." But what
shall we say today?
Within the next two weeks the
newly elected officers will announceC
their committee appointments. There
may be evidences of Campaign prom-r
-ses in some of them. And whether
the campus likes it or not, the old
spoils system may prevail.
There may be, as there probably
h'ave been during the last twenty-
four hours, cries of "politics, poli-
tics." People will find fault with the
new officers, their committees, andr
everything connected with them. Peo-
ple like to do that.
But while these people are com-
plaining, how many of them will re-
member that, not so long ago, they
were asked to take the first step to-
ward eliminating politics on the cam-
pus, asked to place campus offices on
a business-like basis. How many of
them will remember how, just a few
weeks ago, they failed to support the
Union amendment which was the first
step toward putting campus poition=
on a basis of- merit, instead of "pull,"
When the amendment was propos-
ed, the campus at large did not even
bother to vote, instead giving a com-
paratively small group of men, who
thought that somebody was trying to
"put something over on them," the

most profound tragedy since Shakes-

Godly Beside Himself and the chance
victims of a London lodging-house.
The one is Henrik Ilbsen's "The Wildj

Jerome's "The Passing of the Third

Mr. Hollister's production of this
very second play was excellent
-in his manner--at many points,
and the character work of Ludema
Williams, Frieda Bank, Florence Nel-
son, and Kathryn Clarke was con-
vincing, highly talented. Norman
Johnson as the Christ in Blue Denim
however, was very bad, not neces-
sarily in his own right, but chiefly
because the part simply defies any
adequate treatment. - I have even
seen as fine an actor as Pedro de
Cordoba flounder as helplessly. Evi-
dently the only possible technique
for such a characterization is to ring
in an al fresco bass-baritone, theI

But beyond the penny pathos of its
theme the measured popularity
aruosed by "The Passing of the Third
Floor Back" absolutely baffles des-
cription. Even if the thesis were
anything but sheers broiiesEdgar
G-uest, even if its shallowness were
hidden by the grateful art of a
Forbes-Robertson, the play would
have absolutely no action other than
a series of patly sentimental dia-
logues filled with a certain heavy
humor. If a man in real life were to
start prattling as this parlor Jesus
does in Mr. Jerome's scene, anyone,,
even the local Janies Morell, would
jumpoon his soft aphorisms, nelo-
dramatically kick him into the nickel-
odeon street.

Where Good Clothes Are Sold at Reasonable Prices

A review, by Kenneth Wickware.
Last night the- Ann Arbor Play-
makers presented in their Playshop
on Spring street two one 'act plays:
"Whole-Heartedly to Clotho," written
and directed by Paul Osborn and Wal-
ter Donnelly of the Rhetoric depart-
ment, and "The Prince Wants a Cher-
ry Pie," written b yePauline Benedict
Fisher and directed by Mrs. A. D.
Moore. These productions, which will
be repeated tonight and Saturday
night, comprise the second entertain-
ment of their third season.
The first play, which is really a
dramatic sketch rather than a play at
all, is strictly in the modern manner.
It is concerned with a woman, a poet,
and a successful writer. Thme latter
is extremely disconcerting, and shat-
ters a dream or two. Ruth von Bach
Scherer as Jean Prior is as confidenti-
ally charming as ever. Ludlow Barnes
as Bobby Summers the poet, does a
difficult part well. He manages to
achieve just the right proportion of
wistfulness, naivete, and idealistic
"The Prince Wants a Cherry Pie"
is a pure fantasy, presented in an un-
usually clever setting, which is not
the least virtue of the piece. Whether
or not a pie can be fashioned out of
marschino cherries, rather than the
ordinary variety, may not be the most
excellent dramatic material, but it
proves sufficiently entertaining. Mimi,
a maid, and the Prime Minister of the
Kingdom of Pastrypot, in the persons;
of Beth Hibarger and Richard Morrow
Steiner, contrive to quite run off with
the interest in the odd affair.
The Playmakers, as a "little the-
ater" organization, cannot be judged
by ordinary dramatic standards as are
applied to the professional companies.
The Playshop is quite frankly a la-
boratory for play-writing and play-
production, and as such must receive
special consideration. Limited stage
and seating facilities offer serious dif-
ficulties in the way of technical mat-
