fective in changing the votes of Con-
gressmen against their better judg-
ment on the measure is shown by its
continued use.'
After Congress once begins con-
c-ideration of a measure, it should be
allowed to deliberate its provisions
with a relative degree of freedom.
Otherwise, Congressmen will be no
more than puppets for organized in-
terests who wish to force a bill, good
or bad, it little matters, through the
national legislature.
Judging from current news reportsj
it would seem that the contest between
Governor Hartley of Washington and
President Suzzallo of the State uni-
versity is no nearer settlement than
it was some time ago. Public opinion
is undoubtedly on the side of the
ousted educator, but it has not been
sufficiently aggressive to secure the
recall of the vituperative state exe-
Calmed somewhat by associates, the
Governor has maintained a silence but
infrequently broken and the Univer-
sity president has done likewise.
While citizens of the state feel that the
Governor'committed a grave mistake
when he ousted Dr. Suzzallo they
think it not a sufficient cause for his
recall, and with the usual public
apathy in matters of this sort, believe
that the controversy should run its

Now that we have taken over the
Weather Bureau here, we want to
announce a few reforms. Customers1
have been writing in to tell how dis-
satisfiedthey are with the service
lately, and we don't blame them, but,!
you know, this is a difficult depart-I
ment of the government to handle in
a way that suits everybody.I
* * *
However, we have a few reforms
which we will introduce immediately.
For instance, we will arrange special
weather conditions for special oc-
casions, whenever we are notified, a
few days in advance. Send your, or-
ders in early, folks.

There is much to be said on both
sides. The utter lack of tact on the
part of the Governor could best be
overlooked for the benefit of the state.
On the other hand, the University exe-
cutive should direct the institution,
not the Governor. It will be un-
fortunate for the state as well as the
two men involved if the contest is not
settled in the near future.
Manufacturing health and happiness
from coal tar and iodine is a process
apparently beyond t h e ordinary
stretch of the imagination, yet such
is reported as recently having been
accomplished by medical science. Two
English physicians, whom few know,
have discovered a synthesizing thyr-
oxin, which fewer still understand.
Practically speaking, a method of
producing an essence similar to that
of the thyroid gland has been found
which is expected to be of inestimable
value in treating thyroid maladies,
prolonging life and aiding those suf-
fering from a diminution or lack of

A Review by Vincent Wall
Maeterlinck's created play was in-
tended to be wreathed in the nimbus
of incense and cathedral tapers-a
play within the shadow of the cloister
within the sound of cathedral bells.
Masques' version of "Sister Beatrice"
followed in the proper tradition, but
with a simplified treatment that was
The Morris Gest fiasco proved that
the grand manner presentation was
impossible. "The Miracle" became a
gorgeous spectacle that made a mil-
lion and caused critics to bite their
nails and write lyric poems. And.
studied simplicity of the entire pro-
duction was the chief merit in last
night's presentation. The acting of
the entire cast was impeccable, and
the restraint in the expression of the
varied emotions of the nuns was a
triumph. In fact, it might have been
carried even further to include cer-
tain elements in the staging. The
straining after boisteroustmiracles, is
poor theater, and the incarnation of
the virgin to assume the duties of
Sister Beatrice was much more ef-
fective in its simplicity than the fire-
works and roses business in the
chapel. The effect of the voices was
good, and would have sufficed alone.
The medals for the whole show, of
course, go to Minna Miller. Her trans-
lation of the passion torn nun, of the
peaceful serenity of the virgin and
the return of the scarlet sister will be
dramatic history in the campus
theater. The part is difficult; endless
monologues need variety to enliven
them; and convincing interpretation
of the hurried confession of Sister
Beatrice is, a task. Her judicious
supression ofaall dramatic gestures,
and the modulation of the voice to
cover the lack of action was perfectly
done. The profile and voice of
Dorothy Williams in the role of the
abbess was another happy combina-
tion which should be seen in later
productions; and the same might be
said of Marjorie Chavenelie as Sister
Eglantine. Further commending
notes are confined to the makeup of
the Priest and the youthful Prince
Bellidor. The shock of the light voice
of the cadaverous reverend father was
