Receives 1925 Nobel Award For Play
Written in 1923; Didn't Write .'.'*'*

WILL BE GIVEN $35,000
LONDON, Nov. 17. - To George
Bernard Shaw, dramatist who delights
in using the surprise of paradox, has
come one of the most paradoxical sur- K
prises of the day. He has received the:
1925 Nobel prize for literature, ap-'
proximating $35,000. And he wrote
not a line in 1925! : r>
It virtually was the only year his T
pen was idle in 55 years.
But in London literary circles it is
assumed the prize was awarded for'
"St. Joan," Shaw's play on Joan of
Arc, written in 1923, and which in
1925 was being performed in many
countries.
Shew was 70 last July, having been
born in Dublin in 1856, and for a gen-
eration has been accepted as a drama-
tist whose name alone insures a
"draw." It is, therefore, little knownI

worked to past middle age to get at

were written 20 or 30 years ago.>

A Socialist, with an unbending point
of view, he struggled in London for a
score of years against odds that prob-

Football Scenes In
Movie Coming Here
Supervised By Yost
Michigan students will have the op-
portunity in the near future of seeing
a motion picture in which the foot-
ball scenes were personally directed
by Coach Fielding H. Yost.
Critics have stated that the football
scenes in the picture have been made
very realistic by the efforts of Coach
Yost. In supervising the filming, Yost
demanded that he be given an array
of excellent football material with
which to work.
The players who enacted the vars-
ous football scenes under the direction
of Yost follow: Bomar, of Vanderbilt,
an All-American end; Reynolds, of
Georgetown, an All-American and All
Southern star; Keefer, of Michigan
and Brown; Carney, of Annapolis;
Garvey, of Notre Dame; McBride,
Voss, and Forgone, of Syracuse; Jim
Williams, of Lafayette; Rollins, of
Rutgers; Wells, of St. John; Col-
burn, of Amherst; Flaherty, of George-
town; Sheey, of New York University,
and others of lesser reutation.
In some of the plays a double is
substituted for Richard Dix who plays
the leading role in the picture, "The
Quarterback." The substitute is
Jackson Keefer. He is a Michigan
man Nyho later starred at Brown uni.

Walter Camp in his All-American sel-
ections. Some critics say Keefer
would have bedome one of the greatest
halfbacks of all time had he been abr'e
to continue his work here. The pia
ture will open a four day run at the
Arcade Sunday.
