Two more Michigan men, former
players on Wolverine teams and
members of Yost's all-Michigan coach-
ing staff, will leave Ann Arbor to
teach the Michigan method of playing
football on foreign gridirons. Frank-
lin C. Cappon, who played fullback on
the Michigan Conference champion-
ship eleven of 1922, has been appoint-
ed head football coach at the Univer-
sity of Kansas, where he will be as-
sisted by Harold 0. Steele, another
Michigan athlete and a former team-
mate of Cappon.
This increasing demand for Michi-
gan coaches is almost as great a tes-
timonial to the efficiency of the Yost
system of teaching football as the
long list of Conference titles that
Yost-coached teams have won in the
past 25 years. Assistant coaches at
Michigan leave regularly to assume
control at other insttutions-Vander

bilt, Oklahoma Agricultural college,'
Wisconsin, and Kansas are only a few
universities whose teams are directed
by Michigan men; many others, in-
clhding Northwestern,- have former
Michigan athletes ontheir staffs.
To her sons who are devoting their
time to the advancement of athletics
at other institutions, Michigan wishes
the best of luck-may they always be
successful except when they bring
their new proteges against the teams
of their Alma Mater-may the Yost
system 'of football triumph every-
where except against Yost.
In New York City a committee
headed by Julian S. Myrick is naisine
funds to erect a sport bay in the#
Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The
sugestion has been made and ac-
cepted to create a memorial to the
outstanding leaders in athletics, such
as Walter Camp, dean of football, and
Christy Mathewson, the nation's base-
ball idol. Sport will be symbolized
and the memorial will be in harmony
with the beauty and glory of the edi-
fice. The sport bay will give to ath-
letics an honorable niche in the great
cathedral; more than $30,000 has been
subscribed for it in the short time that
the committee has been in existence.

Mellie Dunham, holder of the fiddl-
ing championship of the state of
Maine, went, some time since, to play
for Henry Ford at Detroit,-and from
the comparative seclusion of Norway,
Maine, he has fiddled his way to a na-
tional prominence . His pictures are
printed next to those of national fig-
ures. News about him is worth front
page space in almost all the metro-
politan dailies. Thousands who had
never heard of him until a few weeks
ago now follow his movements with
an interest far exceeding that given to
other newsw'
As a result of this publicity, Mellie
is now in a position where he can
realize on the merits of his fiddling.
It is reported, and no doubt with
considerable truth, that he is being
amply paid for his playing, and that
he will probably continue to fiddle
before packed houses for some time.
He can now earn in ,a few month'
more than he earned in the same
number of years in his home town. He
fiddled his way into what is, to him,
a small, fortune.
The important thing about the
whole matter is that Mellie's abilities
were advertised and advertised well.
A demand for his talent (and who will
say that it does not take talent to be
a championship fiddler?) was created,
and Dunham is profiting by it. Giod
'advertising pays, and pays, and pay.
It has put many a man on easy stroet,
when otherwise he would have re-
mained unknown and unheralded.
(The New York World)
The statement that the late Mrs.
Harding burned practically all he
husband's letters and papers is hap-
pily modified by an announcement of
the, Harding Memorial Association.
Yet the facts are bad enough. The
papers, we are told, "were sorted by
Mrs. Harding. Those that were imma-
terial were destroyed, but all of inter-
est to posterity were saved." Nobody
ever doubted Mrs. Harding's devotion
to her husband's fame. But it re-
quires so highly trained land impartial
a judge to decide what is permanently
I valuable that the one safe rule is to
destroy nothing. Any intimate asso-
ciate is peculiarly disqualified. There
was some reason in William Roscoe
Thayer's remark that reading of a
widows' biographies of their famous
husbands almost made him an advo-
cate of suttee. Would Mrs. Wiashing-
ton have preserved her husband's let-
ter to Lund Washington abusing the
dirty; cowardly New Englanders of
1776? Would Mrs. Lincoln have pre-
served Lincoln's letter describing his
ill-starred courtship of Mary Owens?
Yet in such documents lie hidden the
secrets of personality.
The Library of Congress is per-
forming an important public service
in collecting the correspondence of as
many Presidents as possible. One by
one the gaps are being'filled; some of
Chester A. Arthur's letters are a re-
cent acquisition. Important publish-
ing enterprises can be based on these
collections. One now well under way

an audience are expressed. Of course
we do not lay claim to be a critic, but
supposing that we had written a*
straight review, or that the column
next door had done so before knowing
what the audience thought-the result
wounid have been interesting. . We are
led 4owonder how the opinion of a
critic and that of an audience com-
pare on any legitimate play.
Not that they should or should not
agree-for any critic must express his
own opinion, regardless of the audi-
ence, -but it would be interesting-
The only example we can call to mind
that shows anything is the w. k.
"Abie's Irish Rose" which after ire-
ceiving a unanimous razz by the New
York critics four years ago is still
running in that city today.
This city, as most of our readers
4iow, is the capital of the United
States of America. Because of this
the President of that Republic lives
in this city. His residence is known
as the White House, because of its
color, and because of tradition.
Meeting Cal
Almost everyone who comes to
' Washingtcn must sooner or later get.
'in touch with the Congressmen from
his district and thus meet the presi-
dent. Meeting the president is a for-
mality which consists of lining up in
Suh the same manner that one
would before eating in the tap room
of the Union or rushing the gallery at
the Whitney. This line moves slowly
forward toward where the President
is standing behind a door in an inner
room. As each individual enters he
is given the extremely thrilling pleas-
ure of receiving a half hearted hand-
shake from a middlc-aged gentleman
in a grey suit who looks as if he
either had indigestion or were longing
to be back on the old Vermont farm,
and as if he was bored beyond words,
which he probably is. This is the
presi dent.
Lest one dies from the thrill, the
officials hurry one out of the imperial
presence as quickly 'as possible, and
within five seconds after entering the
building, one finds one's self out on
the street again, a bigger and better
man. Streets
rlhe city is beautifully laid out so
that one can find ones way about as
easily in a taxi as in any other city.
The streets are all given the cleverest,
most intriguing names you ever heard
f. They go this way: A street, B
Btrret, C street, and so on, and the
Avenues go 1st Ave., 2nd Ave., 3rd
Ave., etc, and then they have some
others which have the names of every
state in the Union. This is done, of
course so that the Cougressmen won't
feel lonesome. Should Rep. Mapes of
Idaho, become homesick, for instance,
he can just walk over to Idaho street
and feel just like he was at home
again. Moinuments
The far-famed Washington monu-
ment is a steal from Cleouatra's
needle, only it is bigger and has an
elevator and no hyrogliphics. The best
thing in the town is the Lincoln Me-
morial which is in all truth a thing
of beauty and a joy forever.

A review, by Robert Henderson.
Recently there opened at the Klaw
theatre, New York, for series of spe-
cial matinees a production of "The
Taming of the Shrew" under the di-
rection of Richard Boleslawsky, for-
merly of the Moscow Art Theatre, and
with Rollo Peters as Petruchio, Estel-
le Winwood as Katherine, Ann Hard-
ing as Bianca, and a very literally
"distinguished" cast filling the re-
maining roles.
The performances were what the
trade calls 'a "labor of love," for there'
was only the very esthetic reward of
an artistic triumph in view. Fortu-
nately, however, as luck sometimes
turns in the theatre, the piece was
immediately acclaimed by the critics
and packed houses, and is now being
transferred to the very ;list distinc-
tion of a legitimate run.
The entire manner and method
alone of the interpretation was enough
to lift it from obscurity. There wasj
color and a brash lewdness in the
whole atmosphere that restored the
farce to the setting Shakespeare in-
tended. Everything was exaggerated
and played with the bustling abandon
of the medieval farces; there was no
shifting of scenes save a series of
frankly formal arches on which were
pinned the necessary signs-"a public
square," "Petruchio's house," and the
In the acting, too, as in the odd,
grotesque costumes, there was the
same hurry and enthusiasm. Estelle
Winwood with her large, almost ghou-
lish eyes, her strange fits of passion,
recalled an Ada Rehan to the elder
generation. It was, save for "Spring:
