Individuality on one hand, and the
lack of it on the other, can justly be1
said to constitute the most clashing
difference between the American and.
English statesman. A parliamentary
system either of the French or British
type hinges around executive control
-the exercise of the "crown perog-
atives" or "presidential powers." The#
nt~cles of the cabinet reach, and in la
ertain sense control, the legislature,
-stretching into the realm of local
government their touch is felt, their
grasp upon the executive powers and
functions of state is irremovable.
Nowhere more than in England is

bills, so common to legislative bodies
in this country, rarely find a place on
11.reps ttte books of Parliament; even
a greater rarity is the passage of
ieasures affecting only a small com-
inanity, "private bills" they are
-alled, which in America buy more
votes than the kissing of a thousand
Dy far the largest share of Parlia-
m niitary sessions in England are tak-
en im with the consideration of "gov-
e-inent" business, legislation being
prl-osed, initiated, and all but enact-
ed by the ministers. While at the last,
stand Parliament actually does con-
trol 'the government,' the threat that
all of its members may be compelledi
to contest their seats has often been
known to change the minds of some
of the more reluctant.
What a difference is to be noted on
this side! Here each individual con- I
executive, else the indications noted
are not prophetic, are meaningless.
That we do not today trust our leg-
islators is clearly shown by the large
number of amendments appendaged'
to our state constitutions, limitingX
and defining their powers. The evil
that results from an arrangement of
this sort arises from the ever incras-
ing number of constitutional decisions4
that are handed down each year from
the state supreme courts. Sooner or
later this trial by error method now
employed in seeking a remedy for de-
fective governmental machinery will
bring forth a plan embodying the in-
stitution of a strong executive with
powers sufficient to carry the respon-
sibilities now placed upon him.

New York, 'Charot's Revue of 1926'
opens a two weeks engagement at the
Shubert-Lafayette theatre Monday
night. The attraction has made in-
ternational history and now further
glories are added since it is the
presentation selected from all the
Broadway musical pieces to open the
new El Capitan theatre in Hollywood,
California, under the auspices of the
leading members of the Los Angels
Chamber of Commerce. Only two
stops will be made between New York
and California,-Detroit and Chicago.
"The charm of 'Charlot's Revue'
seems to be that it is different than
what one usually sees in the way of
revues. This English revue consists
of satirical sketches and numbers that
proves the English humor is accept-
able to American audiences when it
is handled by such experts of comedy
as Jack Buchanan, Beatrice Lillie and
Gertrude Lawrence. Of this trio Miss
Lillie was the only one seen in De-
troit last year but this time the origi-
nal cast comes, inviting happiness for
Detroiters who are aware of what is
in store for them."
THE FRENCH PLAY
The twentieth annual French Play
under the auspices of Le Cercle Fran-
cais to be presented on Tuesday,
April 6, in the Mimes theatre, will be
a double bill which includes "[Le

nauxs' "Les Deux Sourds."
The casts have been selected as fol-
