worse, there is a conversion between
a rabbi and a priest--the moral of the
piece-as soft and as nauseating as a
plate0 of pancakes.
Conversely, there is the occasional-
ly adroit acting of the boy and the ir,
Mrs. Cohan andt the rabbi. And there
is the very beautiful interpretation,
even subtle and convincing, of Joseph
Greenwald as the father.
But more than these, more tan the

More thian the oddly pat lines or the
soft sentimlent, it the old warorse
situations, as venerable as Aristo-
phonles and the commedia dell' arte,
as constant in Jonson as in Sheridan
and in Shaw, that have turned the
ti'ick of this homely farce. The tra-
gedly of Mr. and Mrs. Cohan is only
the comedy that you will see i l io-
berg's "Beggarman" later in the year
and -call the pinnacle of broad art;
the slapstick of the Irishman aid the1

Two Conference championships will
be determined in Ann Arbor today:
this morning teams representing eight
Conference and three non-Conference
schools will race over the new Varsity
course for the Big Ten cross country
C,_amp1ionshiip; this afternoon Minnie-
sota and Michigan will meet on Ferry
field to decide the Conference football
Michigan welcomes to Ann Arbor
harriers from Illionis, Indiana, Iowa,
T.i ,nnesota, Northwestern, Ohio State,
Wisconsin, Notre 'Dame, Michigan
State, and Marquette. The University
is justly proud of the privilege of en-
tertaining these men, who, in a larger
sense, may be said, to represent the
highest type of athlete.
Michigan also welcomes the hosts of
Minnesota, who have traveled far in
the hope of returning to Minneapolis
with the traditional. Little Brown Jug
and the football crown of the West.
This will be the sixteenth meeting of
thme two schools on the gridiron,
Mi11chigan having won eleven and tied
oe of the previous contests.
Though today's contest means much
to the supporters of both teams, it is
safe to say that neither teamn will

that have ever repr'esented their re-
spective institutions. One team must
lsyet there need be no shame, no,
humbingof the spirits, for the sup-
1; rters of that team.
Tiwo teams will meet on Ferry field
this afternoon to decide the Confer-
ence championship. The victors are
to be cn gratulated, and we trust that
the losers muay be even more highly
comImended~ for their display of spirit
wnd sportsmanship.
