The French delegation will be
shown every courtesy. They may also
be extended diplomatic favors. But
in the actual settlement of debts,
they will find that we are not as
susceptible as they may have been
lead to believe by American tourists.
IT'S STILL OURS
Every so often some over enthus-
iastic speaker feels called upon to re-
peat Lincoln's remark of this being
a government of, by, and for the peo-
ple, but seldom do they attempt to
prove the fallacy of the accusations
to the effect that it is not all of that
in some quarters there is the con-
stant complaint that this nation is
governed by the few, the govermental
aristocracy, it might be called.
One of the tests of a democracy,
however, might be the manner in
which great changes are made. Sel-
dom does the United States take any
far-reaching action without at least
more or less definitely ascertaining
the attitude of the American publicI
toward that action. All the people
cannot be called into conference with
the President, but the overwhelming
opinion of the citizens at large can
be determined, and ordinarily this
viewpoint is given the utmost con-
sideration in official circles.
At the present time a great problem
confronts the heads of our govern-
ment, the aeronautical problem.
Whether the investigation which is
now being conducted by President
Coolidge's committee finds a separate
air department advisable, or decides
pro or con on any of the other issues
that they will be asked to decide, the
present inquiry 'will have a bracing
effect in all quarters.
By this, means, the entire program
of national defense is laid before the)
public. Every department will be!
thoroughly and completely examined.,
The finest experts in the country on
specialized fields of national defense
will testify, and their testimony will
be placed before the American pub-
lic. Everything having to do with our
army, navy, and air forces, with the
exception of those things which must
be kept secret for international rea-
sons, will be placed before the peo-

You can say that Detroit is the
most madding city in the country,
outside of Dublin the dirtiest, and
outside of Fort Dodge the drosset.
Nevertheless, it has the honor and
virtue of supporting what any man-
ager will tell you is the finest stock
company this side of Boston, and it
is Jessie Bonstelle through her ideal-
ism tactfully tempered with sound
business judgment who has brought
her organization to such considerable
It is Grace George's old saying, but
only too true, that God made the
heavens and Bonnie made the stars.
There is scarcely a talented player of
the younger generation on Broadway
today that has not been associated
with Miss Bonstelle at some time in
their career. At the head of the list,
of course, stands Katherine Cornell,
and it is completed by every actor
from Ann Harding, Frank and Ralph
Morgan, Kenneth McKenna and
Gilda Varesi to Katherine Alexander
and Mary Morris.
Last January, in a sense, marked
the pinnacle of her ambition when
the beautiful new playhouse bearing
her name, a theatre equipped with
every modern improvement both in
the auditorium and backstage, a the-
atre much like the new playhouse of
the New York Theatre Guild, was
opened with a production of "The
Best People." Since then her reper-
tory has included a four week's run
of "The Goose Hangs High" vndl
"Lightnin'"--this to packed houses
during the devastating heat of a De-
troit summer-three weeks of "Little
Women," "Kiki" and ' "The First
Year," and two weeks of every other
play on her schedule.
Especially since this season in-
cluded ten performances a week, she
is giving her company a short rest
commencing, I believe, this Sunday.
This will also give Miss Bonstelle an
opportunity to reorganize the person-
nel of her players. Gilda Leary and
Lester Vail are both leaving her to
play in New York productions, while
Ruth Mason and her husband, TEwin
Wolfe, are to become, resprctiv(0,
the leading 'lady and director of the
Richard Mansfield Players in New
London, Connecticut, under the pat-
ronage of Mrs. Mansfield.
In their places, Miss BonstlnI has
engaged Jessie Royce Landis as lead-
ing lady, Carolyn Tlumphreys as in-
genue, and a new-Comer, Melvin
Douglas, as the juvenille.
The Bonstelle Playhouse, however,
will not be vacant during this period,
as Charles Wagner is to present there

One of the few baritones who have
never appeared in Ann Arbor is thn
distinguished Belgian artist, Louis
Graveure, whose engagement for a
Choral Union concert, December 11,
is therefore of especial significance.
Moderately endowed with vocal
talent, Mr. Graveure is yet so con-1
summate an artist, so thorough and
versatile a musician, that his public
appearances never fail to delight
those who are sensible to the less
tangible qualities of Ene singing. Is
