"The Allies were fighting their
own war and the American Expe-
ditionary Forces finally turned the
scales. I resent the remarks of
men across the sea speaking of
our attitude during the war, stat-
ing that this country devoted
itself merely to making money.
I' resent more, any American or
any American in the Congress of
the United States who deals in
derogatory fashion with the
Ameridan .attitude in 1917 or in
1918. 'We did a job in 1918 of
which America may well be
proud. No man who is a chan-
kt cellor of an exchequer of another
country has. a right to refer to the
attitude of America in those
years or to refer to the selfish-
ness of this land. Let no man in
the future from abroad, without
resentment by America, speak
of our attitude in terms other
than of praise and let no man on
the floor of the Senate or on the
floor of the House of Representa-
tives hereafter refer to America'sI
attitude in 917 except as an
American should. We did our
duty in those days as Americans
in the American- way just as we
will a ways (10 our duty in every
cr a w as Americans in the Amer-
1xi. an way."-Senator Reed, Repub-
lican, Pennsylvania, himself a
war veteran, replying directly to
a statement by Senator Edge, Re-
publican, New Jersey, that the
Allies were "fighting our war un-
til the United' States could get its
forces into France.
"Students and Their Religion," dis-
cussed by Dr. Alexander Meiklejohn,
liberal educator and former president
of Amherst, will be the first topic
discussed at the non-sectarian Uni-
versity services at Hill auditorium,
arranged by the Student council and
the Women's league. What is the re-
ligion of the student? Has the mod-'
ern student any religion? These are
fitting questions with which to open
at Michigan a new movement, and one
which should have a great future.
State universities have, in the past,
needlessly avoided 'religious topics,
fearful of arousing the opposition of

tendance this spring is large enough
to force upon the leaders the convic-
tion that such convocations are filling
a definite need in University life and
must be continued and developed.
Students are not asked to go to Hill
auditorium to be convincedthat their
beliefs are wrong-that a radical
reformation is necessary. But they I
are being offered the privilege of
hearing men whose opinions on re-
ligion are valuable. It matters little
whether the audience agrees with the
speaker's theories, but it matters a
great deal if his speech can rouset
the student to a real appreciation oft
the religion of this generation and thec
problems connected with the relationsc
between youth and the church.-
The Sunday convocations mark a
radical departure from the obsolete
conservatism of the past. The Regents
approved of the move to such an ex-1
tent that they have given permission
to take up a collection in Hill audi'
torium-an act heretofore barred. If
the campus is "alive"--interested in
the great problems that confront re-f
ligion today-Hill auditorium will be
packed on Sunday morning.
In an article which appeared inc

Some of the persons on the campust
who are forever decrying the break-

this University, who are always
prophesying that in a few years the
institution is going to be in dire
straits, and that the students of the
present generation are not here for
intellectual develonment but for so-t
cial pleasure, would do well to readt
this article and learn what opinion is
held of Michigan by some outsiders.'
This outsider may be wrong in kis
impressions, he may be right; but
nevertheless, he would not be able to
give such an optimistic picture if
there were not a certain degree of
truth on which to base hisnstatements.
It is difficult for persons to judge
themselves successfully; the saying
"Oh, to see ourselves as others see
us!" is applicable to institutions as
welas to ind~ividuals, and it i per-
fectly possible that a much more
academic atmosphere prevails at this
University, than we, a part of it, are
able to realize. This outsider is able
to see that the torch of desire for
knowledge is burning here, and it is
most gratifying to know that others
judge us in a better light than do cer-
tain individuas connected with the

American aggresiveness, it is hard-
ly anything else, again threatens to
exceed the bounds of good taste in the
proposed erection of memorials and
war monuments in France. It was
brought out recently by General John
J. Pershing, chairman of the Amei-

can Battle Monuments commission,
that the monuments erected by states,
individuals, organizations, and indi-
viduals will far exceed those of the
Allies unless some further curb is put
upon their construction. It is the
work of the commission at the present
time to supervise the erection and
maintenance of American monuments.
Certainly the words of the retired
chief of the army should carry great
weight when this situation is con-
General Pershing pointed out that
the commission has decided to limit
further construction of war memorials
on the ground that the number is'
already excessive, and that it is im-
possible for agencies other than the
government to properly care for the
monuments after they have been
erected. It was decided to prohibit
further construction of memorials
other than those of public improve-
ment for use of the French, such as
memorial bridges, fountains, and pub-
lic buildings.
The wisdom of the commission in
these matters can hardly be doubted.
Certainly discretion must be used by1
the government, if not by our or-I
ganizations and individuals, in the
number and types of monuments
erected to our soldier dead, especially
in consideration of the fact that thet
United States had fewer troops en-



TONIGHT: Comedy Club presents
Bernard S1haw's "You Never Can Tell"
Ii* the Mimes theatre at 8 o'clock
A review, by Leonard Hall.
An occasional, distant laugh from
the gallery and a shuffling of feet in
the balcony announced the presence
of a few of the faithful, while in the
orchestra certain of the faculty gath-
ered intimately in the front rows to
watch Margaret Anglin prove that
Caroline is no older than on that day
when W. Somerset Maugham's play
opened on Broadway in 1917. That is
by way of comment.
The play, built about the foibles of
the middle-aged, is essentially youth-
ful in spirit, a light comedy of man-
ner4 among people of importance,
Caroline, the widowed finds to her
dismay that she has coasted across
the meridian, and that love, marriage,
and ┬žIsring _nights are not what they
once were. The considerate efforts
of her friends to get her safely and
sensibly married furnish three acts o
laughs. The action aims at no par-
ticular conclusion and reaches none,
but provides fun by the way.
The supporting cast was perfect,
but Miss Anglin as Caroline Ashley
dominated the scene, and rightly.
The play grew and ran its course
about the personality of the veteran
actress, the first Roxanne in Walter
Hampden's "Cyrano de Bergerac."
There was evident that presence
Which comies to many after years on
the stage, a certain sureness and con-
idence, which swept up the other ac-
tors and took the play through with ,
a light step. The play last night in
the Whitney theatre was Margaret
Anglin, yet somehow full justice was
done Mr. Maugham, and the cast.
Tryouts for membership in the
Players Club will be held this after-
noon in Newberry auditorium from
three to five o'clock. All students in-
terested in informal dramatics and
who are eligible for campus activities
are invited to tryout.
A review, by Vincent Wall.
Madame Milessi's program of Tues-
day night in Lane Hall auditorium
was interesting-and was in a way to
be quite astounding. In the first place,
her repertoire consisted of songs from
the German, French, Italian, Irish
songs in English-most versatile-
and with the two possible exceptions
of the Brahm's "Der Schmid" and
"Caro Mio Ben" every number was
new-refreshingly so.
Her range, it is true was exceeding-
ly limited for a mezzo, and the audi-
ence was disgraceful even for a stu-
dent recital of the School of Music.
Besides this there was a thin #anic
piano, which might have known bet-
ter day's, but in its present condition
was too much for even Donna Essel-
styn. They tell us that Madame has
studied for twenty years, and it will
take at least twenty more to make her
a great artist, but she was infinitely
better and presented a program of
infinitely greater variety than many
given in the Choral UMnion series, or
Frank La Forge's pampered darling,
Loretta Degnan of last year's festival.
Given a better ' auditorium, an. en-
thusiastic audience and a piano that

Phyllis Loughton
Dolly in "You Never Can Tell"
One can only say enough in seven
inches, to make himself thoroughly
misunderstood.. A word for the cast
must be given, however. It is the lest
cast that has been assembled in ama-
teur dramatics since my memory.
Phyllis Laughton is a charming spit-!
fire, and her twin in every way her
equab. I believe she is the most fin-
Sished actress on the campus.nLillian
Bronson repeated her very fine suc-
cess in "Outward Bound" and comes
a very close second to Miss Laughton.
And Robert Henderson..... he turns
from slap stick comedy, which I have
long considered his forte, to the sym-!
pathetic, almost sensitive interpreta-
tion, of the waiter-the best thing he
has done yet.
