fering from paralysis who has just
ifound the use of his limbs, she is go-
ing to require a lot of practice,a lot
of unbiased instruction. No one
would think of permitting the grow-
ing child to imitate the gait of a lame
person. Yet there is always an ever- I
present, lurking danger, a danger that
finds its origin in a primitive instinct
-the inherent urge to imitate-which
may steal in unawares despite seem-
ingly unsurmountable barriers. If
women allow themselves to slip into
the ways of men, if wife votes with
husband, mother with son, they will
have turned down their only chance
for a rejuvenation, a rebirth. Our
greatest hope, our most earnest pray-
ers, urge the contrary. The political
life of the nation cries for new blood,
women alone can supply this want.
AN ANTIQUATED DOCTRINE
"When the Senate agreed to enter
the World Court, it indicated the col-
lapse of the policy of isolation," said
Senator Walsh in a recent address.
"It expressed the conviction of the
American people that some measure
of duty rests upon them in respect
to the preservation of the peace of
the world, ant that conscience, no
less than self-respect, required their
co-operation to that end."
Mrs. Raymond Morgan, head of the
Women's World Court committee,
agrees with him when she says, "The
main thing is that we accept the
Court and the principle for which it
stands . This means that the doctrine
of isolation is doomed, that the United
States is again prepared to take her
place as leader toward international
co-operation and world peace."
Both of these statements are true,
the United States, in accepting the
Court, is showing a willingness to
participate in world affairs which
must ultimately result in the discard-
ing of a great deal of the Monroe Doc-
President Monroe undoubtedly
showed great sagacity when he fram-
ed his famous doctrine of isolation,
for at that time the two hemispheres
were only loosely linked together.
And with small chance of involuntary
interference, the western nations
were able to devote nearly all of their
energy to developing internally-ir
forming more perfectly organized and
closely knit states.
But that day is past; with ouh ex-
tensive and complete means of rapi
communication, the continents hav
been brought close together, so thai
they cannot help mingling in on
another's affairs and overlapping i
activities. Ten years ago Europ
showed us that we could not keep ou
of her affairs, the Monroe Doctrin
had to be discarded for the time.
Maintaining world peace does no
necessarily mean entering the League
of Nations, but it does mean discard
ing or revising our antiquated Mon
roe Doctrine so that we can partici
pate in world affairs when the nee
arises without the opposition of met
who are living in a past decade an
I still believe in upholding the od
principles. This would not mean
leaving South America open to depre
datory European nations. The ma
majority of those countries are able
to take care of themselves in any

Mishaps excepted, the effort toward
the organization of a Michigan chap-
ter of the League of Women Voters
mnarks still another step in the direc-
tion of the liberation of women from
stiangling bonds, man made, and thel
accumulation of the ages. No legis-
lative body, no court, no administra-
tor, however powerful, can make
woman an expressive, vibrating, liv-
ing admixture of organic structurel

If our suggestion were put into ef-
fect, Ann Arbor would enjoy the
climate of Atlanta, georgia. We
:lon't know much about the climate
of that city, but it would certainly be
an improvement. The trouble with
the weather here is that it can't make
up its mind from week to week or day
to day just what it is going to be. As
a consequence it will rain in the
morning snow at night melt the next
morning and then start all over
again. This is hardly ideal. If one at-
tends a class just when the snow be-
gins one can never tell what it will
be doing when the hour is over. It
can't be this bad in Atlanta.

REHINISCENCES OF A JUNIOR
Tis now three years since first I came
Into this universe of shame
Unto this university I brought
The highest morals, cleanest thought
But now what have I?-Nothing.
Iy moral gone, my mind runs low
And I am' headed for below
No one can save me now, I call
Oh youth take notice of my fall
And follow not my footsteps.
Believe unto yourself my lad
And follow not the popular fad
When better reason tells you no
Then to the devil you say "no!"
And you may be rewarded.

A tragedy of Urbanity
And now a misfortune befell me
I had become One of the Cultured. I
read H. G. Wells and actually sub-
scribed to the American Mercury. I
was sought after at every dinner-
table because of my witty conversa-
tion. But, as I said before, A mis-
fortune happened to me.
Apparently, as my social polish
heightened, my dancing efficiency
and general value to the "Oh, Mam-
ma!" company of which I was a part
decreased. On this fateful day I was
clumsier than usual at the rehearsal
The stage manager shrply repri-
manded me, or, as the vulgar would
put it, gave me a helluva good bawl-
ing out. I shot back a snappy Oscar
Wilde epigram at him.
"So!" he said, Miltgrossily. "Queeps
witt smotterecks you replying, ha
Iss diss a system? Gerradahere, dope!
Yurr fired." So that wah that. Sho
out into the cold, cruel world withou
a cent for I had spent my whole
week's salary on books and Mrs. --
my meal ticket, was out of town.
What was worse, I had not paid my
rent for weeks; and, moneyless and
jobless, I was afraid to face my land
lady. So I walked the streets tha

THE YPSILANTI PLAYERS
A review, by Robert Perry.
"The Drawback," by Maurice Bar-
ing presented last night as the open-
er for the program of the Ypsilanti,
Players is the kind of production that
needs intimacy and the success of it
in this smallest of Little Theatres
owes much to the contact between
audience and stage just as "The
Morning of Don Juan" succeeded
through the intimacy of the play-
house that was felt so well in the De-
cember production. Minerva Miller
as "She" was the alluring and ball-
bearing-tongued nice girl to perfec-
tion and Valentine Davies as "He"
was the stammering and awkward
boy-lover who had no chance at more
than a chance word, interspersed be-
tween the too adequate and willing
verbosity of "She." A nice little dia-
logue, the success of which was ps-
sible through the intimacy of the
house, not to mention the glib re-
sourcefulness of the nice girl, "She,"
which Minerva 1Niller interpreted
even to the indignation that her so-
cial position was in danger from a
And that by way of introduction to
the program of the evening for which
we were on our .toes for no other rea-.
son than that Pat J. Smith was to
Iplay the leading man, the same thatI
was still reminding us of his interpre-
tation of "Don Juan." "Mme. Beau-
det" played by Cora Lane Wiedman
the dramatic counterpart of a Local
Garage Owner, who literally took me
down the road for a minor sum while
I was enjoying the production, was
slightly too phlegmatic for the ap-
parent popularity of the French
Dameas which she washcast. We
lean indeed toward the more vivaci-
ous playing of Avis Thompson as
Mine .Lebas, whose stage presence we
were allowed for but a moment.
Patrick J. Smith, the same as lan-
guished so languorously through Don
Juan was full as well a master of
this M. Beaudet, a successful young
business man of immense importance
and especially as the head of his own
household. And next to this mater-
ful ass we were pleased by the inter-
pretation of Gabrielle by Elizabeth
Strauss, the chic French maid who
was the type to perfection, and who
shone beside the heaviness of the lead
to which she played. The banker
Ernest Goodwin shone both as M. Le-
has the common sense advisor t
Beaudet and also as the husband of
Mine. Lebas, of whom we had such a
fleeting happy glimpse. The 'haughty
Jacques Dauzat was played by one
Robert Schrepper, of whom like Mme.
Lebas, was say too little considering
the quality of interpretation. Nosing
Eugenie, played by Gertrude Lamb,
the wife of a local grocer was for a
minor part also one of the bright and
shining interpretations, this time is
being that of the irrepressible maid
of all work, including the family busi-
ness. Of Chester Loomis, Jr., as a
Clerk, we saw so little as to only
wonder what he might have done, but
The one character that lagged and
was really disagreeable was Marguer-
-ite Prevot played by Alice Naffz. It !
certainly d id not come up to the
high standard of the company.

- A review, by Alan Hathaway.
Ten characters in a single body, ten
well dened personalities in one. F. W.
Robinson's three act comedy, 'David
Garrick' impersonated by Mr. Rice
caused Hill auditorium to be the
scene of an extremely pleasing dra-
matic interpretation presented before
a responsive audience. Instant change
- of facial expression and personality,
modulation of voice from a barking
bass to a squeaky falsetto lead the
play leap by leap from one character
to another. y .v
David Garrick, the gentleman, the
politesse of society seemed a natural
being. David Garrick the pseudo-
drunkard-one could almost smell the
- alcohol. Garrick, the gentleman, (is-
t coursing with Simon Ingent, the Eng-
lish Babbitt, subtle insinuations, re-
ceived with naive confusion. Chibby
the fop, falsetto, imbecilic grin and
the fact of a simpleton, Jones who
st-t-t-ttutters t-t-t-erribly, self-con-
scions and super-sensitive, Smith, a
t member of the 'change, hatchet faced,
sharp voicedrand stiff shoulders. Then
the soft, precise voice of Ada, the
daughter in question.
t Such are the characters interpreted
and impersonated by Mr. Rice. His
s skill is most marked by his versitility
t of expression and imitation. The
subtle humor of the play seldom fail-
ed to provoke mirth while the melo-
- drama brought forth an expectant
-Ihush. The women characters, the
e hardest for a manto imitate were the
a only ones not entirely natural, their }
character for the most part brought
out through the speeches of the men,
s as 'Mother Smith,' proud parent of
seven-seventeen-and finally seven-
y ty registered indigiltion at the above
d accusations of Garrick the roustabouti
in his assumed intoxication. The play
on the whole though, was admirably
suited for the interpretation as most
of the active characters were malP.

MAKI\G A FRIEND OF BOREAS
(The Minneapolis Journal)
Thirteen inches of snow paralyzed
the cities of the North Atlantic sea-
board., New York and Boston were
just about helpless in a situation that
would have discommoded Minneapolis
Why? Because the dwellers in
those. Eastern cities have not learned
like Minneapolis, how to live in kindly
neighborliness with old Boreas. Wej
meet the snow as a friend. They
shrink from the snow as a deadly
enemy. New Yorkers flock to famed
Adirondack resorts for the zest of
winter sports. But, given the same
conditions at their doorsteps, they
seem virtually helpless.
In a region where winter's visit is
normally continuous over a period of
two or three months, we have an in-
timate acquaintance with Boreas. We.
know what he can do. But we also
know what he can not do. We know,
for one thing, that he can not stop us,
