sible for the introduction of this ad-
It has been almost a month since
Mussolini has done anything dastardly
in the Balkans; but now he has re-
covered from his apathy and has
enacted a treaty with Albania which
threatens the peace of the whole
Balkan peninsula.
Albania and Italy have signed a pact
which gives them control of the1
Adriatic, it seems, with an ominous
rumor about a military clause. There
are other nations on the Adriatic
which are riot only threatened but
imperiled by the pact, notably Jugo-
slavia. But Jugoslavia has an army
of 200,000, as all nations bordering on
Mussolini must have large armies;
and therein lies a fine plot for a war.
Mussolini will defy the League of
NationA; justice makes no appeal, to
him. Reason is beyond the limits of
his not too capacious mind. The de-
mented dictator may have ideals for
Italy, but the rest of the world will
have to be abolished before his plan
can succeed. Respect for others
should be a part of the policy of every
government-Mussolini lacks this re-
Amid a hurricane of applause and
the °playing of "The Internationale"
J. A. Cook, secretary of the British
Miners' federation, went forward and
delivered a "flaming" speech, bitterly
blaming English labor leaders for the
collapse of the recent strike, at the
recent meeting of the Soviet Trades
Union congress in Moscow.
Facts are that the failure of the
British Miners' strike was largely do
to the incompetence of "Emperor"
Cook and his acknowledged connec-
tions with the Soviet. That Mr. Cook
was the Soviet's tool, has been pointed
out before. Yet it is not to be won-
dered that a man of the doubtful
qualities of leadership possessed by
Mr. Cook would overlook his own
There are thousands of capable and
high principled newspaper editors in
the country. There are also men who
publish the tabloids.
The best way to give an extempo-
raneous speech is to have it well pre-
Where are those who predicted the
mildest 'winter since 1879?

As for the comedy element in "Front
Page Stuff" there is plenty of it, and
a lot that is excellent. The Swedish
countess is rotten as a dancer, worse{
as a singer, and absolutely terrible asi
a countess-and that is why she is soI
good. If all royalty were like she,1
ticket scalpers would get any amount
of money for a seat at Hill auditori-
ums convocations for visiting queens.
There is also a baron, with a trick
mustache and a trick or two in act-'
ing. He is one of three reasons why
the trio that sang "Where Is Your
Danger Line" was off tune.

And the nine Muses are there with

Although the final reaction of Chile!
and Peru to Secretary Kellogg's pro-
posed settlement of the Tacna-Arica
dispute has yet to be learned, there is
no doubt that other South American'

acceptance or rejection of the plan
whereby the -territory should be sold
outright to Bolivia.. In a purely dis-
interested note the Secretary suggest-
ed the sale of the land, since no
method of dlviding or awarding the

There must be a few things we

that, if the contributors to the Sta-

Reserves arriving from Arboria
completely routed the . handful of
Browstark citizens gathered to cele-
brate the rescue of their Princess
from the hands of the Arboria kid-
napers. And in the melee that fol-
lowed, Paul lost sight of the carriage
of Princess Collegia Spirita.
She just disappeared from the pub-
lic gaze like ineligible chairmen of
i Prom committees. But her disappear-
ance was important, and so Paul
started to hunt for her. Although
clubbed several times, he managed to
escape and on the outskirts of the
crowd he was just in time to see
Princess Collie being carried away
by a squad of Arboria soldiers.
Being the hero of this tale, he chas-
ed after them and bravely attempted
to rescue her. But he met his defeat
and was removed from the story just
as Clippy would kill a mole.
(Concluded In Our Next)
Some alumus wrote in to the 'En-
sian to subscribe. That's enough of
a joke, but he went on to complain
about the quality of the playing cards
he bought from the Women's league a
few months ago. They curled up at
the edges and the color faded, he
said. He wasn't kicking, he went on
to explain, but he did think some
company had put something over on
the dear co-eds.

Sure they did. Any dollar playing
cards ought to stand up straight after
a mere ten months of -poker. Unless
they turned up their noses at his
ability as a card player.

TONIGHT: The T)imes of the
Michigan Union present "Front Page
Stuff" In the Whitney theater at 8:15
A Review by Kenneth Patrick
"Front Page Stuff,"-but on page
four. Have at them.....Those inter-
ested will know by the end of the
fourth performance the various me-
canics of plot and background, and
would rather be complimented by the
omission of the same. Therefore, the
program notes will prevail. It has'
been said that the comedy is either
inane 'or entirely lacking, but such
was not the case last night. Clock-
work did not exactly hold sway, but
spontaneity filled the gaps to the sat-
isfaction of everyone, and there were
at least eight occasions when mirth
gave way to heartier expression. The
bare spots were only conspicuous by
their scarcity. The opening lines
were lost through noise, but that is
an ailment not peculiar to the opera.
One of the most-noticed spots in the
show was the innovation of the plot
delineators, by which Mr. Shuter cast
a few cabbages into the waiting arms
of the audience.
Brilliant and lingering were the
profuse "pictures" which were un-
reeled, and these alone should guar-
antee more than the usual amount of
success. The songs were more tune-
ful and satisfying than any which
"Tambourine" produced, and the sing-
ing of them should not be passed
over, although there was no voice of
outstanding power, such as that of
Barre Hill.
Themost-heralded number, "Lady
Of The Snows" was the only one in
which faulty mechanics were easily
observed, and one could not but hope
that it might appear to better ad-
vantage on the tour where better fa-
cilities are to be obtained. Regard-
less, it is beautiful and will elicit
gasps at any time. A little extra effort
on it will bring the cast great re-
Then there is Gohring and Dougall,
Lyons and Norton, all of whom hit
their top form last night. Of the
hitherto unsung let it be added that
Frank Strachan, Richard Woellhat,
and Bob Graham work steadily and
even brilliantly toward making the
show a finished product. The latter's
voice is surprisingly melodious.
The last word must go to Lewis.
His interpretation is wonderful and
can be seen, and since those out in
front see only the finished product
they are not aware of his part in the
preparation and inspiation-not to
f be discounted.
Let it be called specialized vaude-
ville and assailed for its plot-it will
go over nevertheless-a~nd there will
be noise.

Turning from the entirely modern
satire of marriage "Why Marry?"
which was given in an all-campus
production last spring, Masques has
turned to a medieval play. Maurice
Maeterlinck's "Sister Beatrice," which
will be given next Tuesday and Wed-
nesday nights in the Mimes theater, is
a lyrical drama of colorful romance
and religious mystery. The play has
been in rehearsal for the past few
weeks and under thecapable direction
of Phyllis Loughton, a finished pro-
duction is promised.

A Review by Paul Kern
A man who can interpret one char-
acter skillfully is a great actor; a
man who can interpret thirteen at

will, and still do it skillfully is the
world's greatest dramatic recitalist;
that is Edwin M. Whitney. One does
not have to hear all of the others to
know this; for Mr. Whitney's is the
1 type of superiority that needs no com-
parison; the type that stands out even
above comparison.
Other men may have better press
agents, and other good interpreters
have appeared in Hil auditorium; but
there is an impression of immense
superiority in Edwin M. Whitney's
performance from the time he reaches
the platform until he leaves it. No
imagination is needed to picture the
characters as Mr. Whitney presents
them; the imagination would be re-
quired if one were still to think the
character to be the actor himself. In
every field someone is supreme, but
in many cases clear-cut superiority
is not as recognizable as in the field
of dramatic interpretation.
The play he gave, "Fortune Hunt-
ers," by Winchell Smith, was well
chosen and a typically WinchellSmith
play. It gave the speaker a wide
range for his remarkable voice, all the
way from a piercing feminine squeek
to a deep bass growl. The wide range of
voicenwas supplemented by a variation
of tone that could be alternately soft
and harsh, angry or kindly, at succes-
sive moments. His remarkable tonal
effect, with the facial expression andI
gestures should prove even to the
skeptical that acting is not a matter
of makeup or properties.
Not a single feature is lost in ex-
