Bonstelle Playhouse, Detroit, was un-
usually good. Lester Vail, the com-

he was much more by taking the part

ERNEST DE WITT BURTON
Michigan is fully capable of sympa-j
thizing with the University of Chicago
in her bereavement over the death of
her president, Dr. Ernest de Witt
Burton. Michigan knows how it feels,
to lose a loved and respected man,
especially when that man is the presi-
dent of the University.
Words are meaningless at suchI
times as this, but by their sympathy
and sorrow, Chicago may know that
the people of the country understand
not only the University of Chicago's
loss, but also the nation's loss.
Michigan wishes to pay tribute to a
a great soul that has passed on, to aI
great builder that has been lost to his.
