is a rather sanguinary way of settling

"President Wilson was betrayed
by Colonel House, who was pri-
marily responsible for the down-
fall of the war president's ideals ;
and hopes after the Paris confer-
ence and was the evil genius of
the late president. Secretary of
State Lansing also aided in nulli-
fying the acts of Mr. Wilson.
When the President returned to
America both D ouse and Lansing
got together with1 Clemenceau and
Balfour, the most reactionary
statesmen in England, and this
little group then undid all the
brilliant work of the previous
session and framed the ground-
word of the Versailles treaty,

President Coolidge, speaking be-
fore the Daughters of the American
Rtevolution, declared that the ballot
box is the heart of a democratic gov-
ernment and that American laxity at
the polls would lead to the dest'ruc-
tion of such a governing system. To-

ity in which he has somehow injected
more romance than the giddiest mu-
sical comedy ever achieves. But one
wonders a deal about this cast, pro-
claimed as real bruisers picked out
from Phi Beta Kappa and the Daily
and a few other places, announced as
types not actors, supposed to be pick-
ed up almost from the streets.
If Mimes and Mr. Shuter can pick
up this sort of stuff from the street
they should go into the business per-
manently. These fellows had some-
thing that no other cast has had this
year, a facile, inevitable way of slip-
ping into their parts and being valu-l
able if only as a background. They
had everything the play gave them;
unforced song good enough to be pro-
longed, which is unusual in campus
theatre, several effective fights, friend-
ly of course and only for entertain-
ment but mighty good entertainment,;
sailor drunkenness without seeming,
effort, mob scenes without loss of
realism, and each following the other
without a break.
Ordinarily that would have been
enough. But ' to show that theyI
weren't lost when separated they went
on to show "Bound East for Cardiff"
with its extenuated tragedy and shook
all that was in it out until the end
was almost a physical effort in the
audience. And the surprising thing is
that the men who carried the whole
thing were new; Lorain Norton as'
"Yank," Donald Lyons as "Driscoll,"
Abraham Sachs, Richard Woellhaf,
Leonard Hall. Where did Mimes find
them-still on the street.
So much for superlatives. The first
play is shocking enough to satisfy the
promises of the advertising, it finds
one or two gaps. But on the whole
the laughs come where they should,
there isn't much to blush about even
if blushes could be seen. The second
play has more than enough of the
other sort of thing to satisfy the most
rabid uplifter of campus morals. The
contrast is striking.
"S. S. Glencairn" is unusual in thatj
it has somehow escaped the polite
polished sort of thing that is so often
evident in campus dramatics.
