We are far behind the old country
i this respect; very few persons in
t is country know how to utilize their.
leisure. Even the persons who can
afford to do nothing seldom do it.
These persons either (lie of ennui, or
become incompetent through lack ofa
properly directed energy. They be-
come public nuisances, or else pile
tap a great deal of potential energy .
that theyacannever utilize to advan-
Surely they ought to be taught tol
use this spare time in something
which is at least interesting to them.
The person who employs his leisure
to master some form of connoisseur-
sl ip, to gain a special knowledge, an
appreciation of art, music, or letters;
to enrich his mind by familiarity with
beauty and what is best in this old
world, and lives so that his intelligent
leisure reacts upon society, is doing
as much good as the capitalist and the
The best use of leisure is for some-
thing better than selfish interests, and
there is more and more opportunity
for int'ligent leisure in this country.
It is a happy thought that Mr. Speare
holds out to our prosperous people, a
means of attaining the useful employ-
ment of spare time.
Mussolini plans to reconstruct two
Roman galleys as part of his program
of reclaiming the glories of that an-

We have just thought of something
Which might make quite an anecdote.
The idea is lased on an absent minded
professor who, walking to class while
his car,.was .being repaired stops and

much, but maybe someone could make
a good after dinner story out of it.
ROLLS EXPEDITION TO ARCTIC IS
POSTiONED UNTIL 1932
TOO MUCH MONEY IS CAUSE
Ann Arijor, Mich., May 6.-(By B. P.'
O. E.)--The Rolls expedition to Ice-
land schedled to start off to fix up
things in general there will not leave
this year because so much money has
been collected by the speeches of
Prof. Jupiter C. Nobbs that all of it
wilnqt be spent before that time. So
many ships have been offered the
party that were all of them accepted
the fleet would mar all Atlantic traffic
for so long that it is thought best to
have some sort of elimination tryouts
before making the final choice.' Be-
cause of this and also because there
_has been so, much money contributed
that it will just all be spent, if special
.ew.equipinent is made from specially
;grown tres 'and specially raised ani-
nals, aftl this will take quite a time,
t-fe delay has been found unavoidable.
In the meantime, however, a small
party will go to Iceland this summer
in a row boat borrowed from the Bar-'
toil Hills golf club water hazard in
order to pave the way for the larger
expedition to follow. Prof. Nobbs
himself in person and not a false
beard will lead the party. This party
will make plans and maps and all
sorts of things which will be of prac-
tically no use to the larger party, but
wil give the professor lots to do and
Further reports will appear as soon
as further events occur to warrant

"S. S. GLENCAIRN"
A review by William Lucas.
To say that "Glencairn" is the best
production the Mimes theatre has
housed this semester is appallingly,
inadequate. It it so refreshingly dif-
ferent-this cycle of three plays, ting-
ed with that pungent, healthy real-
ism that we have come to associate
with the author of Anna Christie. After
all, Engaged, Great Catherine, Why
Marry, et al, excellent productions, it
is true, were so manifestly of the
theatre, and after their facitious hu-
mor, their outrageous burlesque,
O'Neill is like a breath of fresh air-
good salt air, with the tang of the
sea. 4Was there ever a production
more abused than this? Perhaps, after
all is said and done, the S. C. A. may
reflect that he who laughs last laughs,
"Glencairn" is so completely above
those smirking allusions to its sub-
ject matter, as if it were a risque
French farce, a morsel stinking of the
garbage can-; it is poignant, moving
drama, played with a sympathy and
understanding, that puts to shame
these "all-campus" casts we have
been worshipping of late. The cast;j
that is the chief revelation. We are,
or should be, aware of the power of
an O'Neill play, but by who else than
the devoted band at the Provincetown
should we expect them so effectively
done? The players are for the most
part, raw material; that is the sur-
prising thing and perhaps that very
fact contributes to their success.
Those who show the results of ex-
perience havebeen spared the spot-
light of publicity, and they manage to
lose themselves in the performance
with that spontaneity which is the
glory of the amateur theatre at its
"The loon of the Caribees" is per-
haps less effective than its successors,
"Bound East for Cardiff," and "In the
Zone." It servesthowever as an ad-
mirable prelude to the poignancy of
the drama which follows. The death
scene in "Bound East For Cardiff" is"
one not soon forgotten. It is played
by Lorain Norton and Donald Lyons-
and there can be no more said than
this-they lived their parts, and an
audience, not overly responsive at
first, lived with them. But first men-
tion must go to Richard Woellhal in
the role of. Smitty. He proved himselt
an actor of first rate ability, and his
sympathetic interpretation of the
heart sick Smitty deserves to rank
among the three or four truly fine
characterizations made known in the
Mimes theatre this year. And best of
all he doesn't seem to know it.
Carl Nesson, Richard Lutes, and
Abraham Sachs did exceptionally well
in character roles, the latter extract-
ing a wealth of humor from not over-
ly auspicious lines. It is doubtful,
however, whether one is apt to think
as much of the players as the parts
they have created. The directors have
evidently allowed a good deal of in-
dividual initiative in the character

One 'of the aspects of the English
general strike which has not been
dealt with so far is the effect it has
had on labor in our own country. In
the eyes of the radical laborer, what-
ever his nationality, this is the time
for him to declare his rights, to makeI
from an already large strike a world
wide declaration of the intent of la-
bor to govern the earth.
Pledges from. trades unions all over'
the world, except America, have beenj
received in England, supporting the
strikers. German laborers refuse to
let coal be transported to England,
French unions pledge their moral
support, Italian tradesmen give aid,
and Russia is heartily in sympathy
with the movement.
The American Federation of LaborI
makes no statement whatsoever of itsI
views. This speaks well for our
American unions, though there is no
reason why labor in this country should
be dissatisfied. The two things which
are directly responsible for the good
condition of our workmen are modern-
ization of machinery and quantity of
Tiower. England and -the other for-
eign nations have neither of these on
any large scale. For every worRman
in United States, there is a force of
three horse power used in manufac-
Due to this difference in quality of
labor between other countries and
our own, and to the fact that our
trades unions give no support to such
an undertaking -as the English work-
men have adopted, there is reason to
belleve, or at lea.st hope, that capital
and labor in Ainerica are at last coin-
ing to an understanding of mutual re-
HOW TO LOAF
' President Speare, of Northeastern
university, has discovered a newl
branch of instruction for colleges
To the Editor:
Sir Frederic Whyte. said yesterday
in his talk on "The Political Awaken-
ing in. Asia" that the democratic gov-
ernment in China is a failure and that
the Chinese people lack patriotism. I
am not a student in political science,
so I do not pretend to be able to pro-
duce facts and proofs why we do not
agree with him and why we think we
have patriotism. But I wish to refer
to one insance as an evidence that
we do not need to "accquire patriot-
ism" as Sir Frederic declared.
The spirit we showed in boycotts
Sir Frederic already mentioned and
I am not to speak about again. What
I would like to call the attention to
is the general strike in Shanghai after
the "May 30 Incident" last year. When
the Chamber of Commerce voted to'
join the workers in the strike, it was
not for higher wage and shorter hours,
nor for any other indirect benefit. On
the other hand, those experienced
business men well realized it meantl
a tremendous loss to their respective
business. Then what led them to de-
liberately make such a big sacrifice?
They were called upon to stand for a
national cause and they answered it.
This I call patriotism.
Sir Frederic described well the
revolution in China by saying, "Liter-
ally over night, the Manchu Monarchy
fell and the republic was set up."
But he went on and, without giving
the causes for the present situation,
he concluded "the democratic govern-
ment is a failure." I have no doubt
that Sir Frederic, being a student in
the politics in Asia, fully understandsI
the complicated condition in China to-
day, such as the effects of the military
and diplomatic defeats since 1340, and
the direct and indirect support of the
powers from the different generals at
present. All these have their due
share in delaying our attempt to put
our house in order.
But even if we (1o admit that in
what we could do from our part with
the democratic government, we have
disappointed the westerners is thel
period of fifteen years rather short for
the immense task of evolution from an
ancient and vast empire to a modern
republic? This slow process was not
completed, but merely started on Jan-
uary 1, 1912, and has been going on

the speaker carried out the figure ad-

and so there could be a lot of distinc-

on the part of the students and in-
structors both. Such action would
bring a day or so in the guard-house-
which would be Tappan hall
Although some of the professors
might 'object to the military uniform,
still if they think they can pass in
knickers they ought to be able to
stand the nattier costume,
, Taking the place of the Spring
ganes and other inter-class activities,
there would be sham battles, the uni-
versityibeing divided into two armies
accordijg to schools, the Lits and
Laws against the Engineers and
Dents. The Medics would be neutral,
serving. as the Red Cross. -
In place of track meets with other
colleges, there would be field days,
with competition in drilling.
Rlather than football, there would be
picked regiments to battle with other
universitie's, using blanks in their
guns whenever possible.
But the worst of it as we see it is
that anything said in ROLLS could be
made the subject of a court-martial,
and this idea of standing before a
firing-squad isn't pleasant.
And if you didn't do an assignment
for some class, the officer could make
you stand at attention for the rest
of the hour, or something like that.
