USELESS AND DANGEROUS
Advocated as a measure to secure
or enforce the peace of the world, the,
formation of an English-speaking al-
liance between the United States and
the British Empire has been proposed
recently by able men, and as a peace
measure has been both condemned
and praised. A written agreement or
an unwritten "understanding" have
been suggested to cement closer rela-
tions, and to form a British-American
alliance . . . . against the rest of the,
world.I
For that 10 exaciy what it would
lie. While the two commonwealths
have common ideals, have an edge on,
the world's natural resources, are
bound together by language, by racial
ties, and by mutual respect, the at-,
tempted enforcement of peace by Brit-
ish and American policemen would
undoubtedly meet with opposition and;
derision because of the intimated su-'
periority. The assumption that our
ideas and ideals should be adopted by
France, Germany, Italy, and the rest,;
and that we have a keener sense of
justice is certain to be disagreeable
to them. We have been in just about
as many wars as anyone else and will;
probobaly continue to be. All of1
which is rather devasting when one
comes to think of it.
If the alliance were to be effective;
it would have to be a writtep, binding
agreement. Whatever the Empire did.
the United States would of necessity;
support, and vice versa. That is;
where the real danger lies. Thp United
States is faced by no prospects of a,
first class war. Great Britain is, per-
haps with China, perhaps with Russia.a
We should have nothing to gain in,
foreign relationships and much to;
lose. Then, too, if the entanglements
of a written agreement are to be1
avoided, as suggested by Premier
Bruce of Australia, by engaging in an
unwritten "understanding," the Brit-;
ish and American peace policemen'
would be clubless, powerless to act.
W\hile the idea sounds well and the(
ideals involved are impressive, anI
English-speaking alliance would be
valueless to us, might conceivably in-7
volve the counry in foreign disputes,
in which we have no rational interest,
and would merely be another obliga-c
tion, more useless and dangerous than
any we now have. Anyway one fig-;
ures it, we would lose.c

would be responsible and in which
we would probably be the losers.
Forming a cabinet in Germany;
seems to be every bit as difficult as
settling the Tacna-Arica dispute.-

VIVISECTION DEFENDED
To The Editor:
My quarrel is half with the well-
named writer of yesterday's anti-vivi-
section outburst, and half with the
Michigan Daily for allowing such a
display of ignorance to appear on its
pages, to be read by ten thousand peo-
ple who are supposed to have at least
a smattering of scientific methods and
purpose.
Yesterday's writer, like all anti-
vivisectionists, has never visited an
experimental laboratory at all, or else
he has peeped into one without the
slightest idea of what was going on.
More likely, he has passed the medical
school and heard several dogs howl-
ing within. They howl because they
tre hungry and haven't anything else
to do, as they are treated like other
surgical patients and deprived of food
for a short time before operation.l
When the actual cutting is done, the
so-called vivisection which usually
consists of opening a vein or an art-
ery, they are silent in a deep ether
anaesthesia. The experiment com-
pleted, they die a painless death with
more ether. Or, if it is a bacteri-
ological experiment, they may con-
tract a disease and be sick for a few
days, usually with no actual pain,
after which they are killed and the
diseased tissues examined with a
microscope. That, briefly, is the sum
of the horrors vaguely alluded to yes- I
terday.
Rather than torture the aninals
(dogs, rats, mice, rabbits, guinea
pigs) he recommends that we endure
uncomplainingly the diseases (which
he says) we ourselves have created. I
Fine! I wish he had lived a few years
ago and could have watched the real
horrors of decimating epidemics of
bubonic plague, yellow fever (con-
quered at the cost of human experi-
mental animals), typhus fever and
typhoid, diphtheria when the only
treatment was to slit open the wind-'
pipe of the victim so he could breathe
a day or so longer, and the Great Pox
(syphilis) of the middle ages that
made life in Europe a living hell. All
those and many more have been
largely conquered by the microscope
working in conjunction with animal
experiments, for no disease germ has
its identity proven until it reproduces
the disease in another animal.
Or let him live only ten years agp
when old diabetics died miserably
with gangrene and young diabetics
knew their doom was sealed almost
within the year. Now they live to
ripe old age in comfort, for Banting
and many others let dogs solve the
problem. The dog becomes a hero
under these circumstances, not a vic-
tim.

Contrary to rumors, no voting booth
will be set up in the diagonal sta-
dium for the big election. There will
be no cigars passed out, and abso-
lutely no politics . It will be as clean
as the freshman lit elections.

WE WILL CUTTER AGAIN
Editor, Toasted Rolls,
Dear Sir,
The writer has read with interest
and keen appreciation your reference
to your cutter ride in Sunday's pa-
per. As the owner of the Kentucky
Riding Academy, I want to extend
to you an invitation to ride behind
real horses with my compliments.
(Signed)
* * *
Which is very kind of the gentle-
man, and we called him up to make
the appointment yesterday. And it's
all set: we ride behind one of the
Blue-Grass-fed ponies of this Friday
night, IF THERE IS SNOW.
* * *
The reason we have to have snow
3s that the horses will probably get
too frisky and throw us into the ditch,
and we prefer to land a la Alaska
rather than a la Venice.
You know, that's just the trouble
with the whole thing. It is all a
question of whether you'd rather go
riding behind a nice ruminating sort
of horse and come home slowly, or
drive a fast ruinating animal and
come home 60 miles an hour-in an
ambulance.
We never drove a horse until last
Friday, and wouldn't know what to
pull or even what to yell if he got the
idea there was a race on with some
Ypsilanti bootlegger's car.
* * ,
Perhaps some Ann Arbor cop would
come along on his motorcycle and
shoot some tear gas at the colt if it
got going too fast.
* s .
WANTED: SNOW
The way the weather bureau is
dishing out weather now-since we
left to tackle a bigger job, the League
fund-we won't be able to take the
ride at all, unless we make it a buggy
ride.{
One thing certain, we won't try to
ride a saddle horse: we could hardly
manage to stay on a motorcycle-even
in the side car.
And ineidelitly we weren't surprisedI
when that boy won the Catalina swim.
Anyone who could ride a motor-
cycle across the cotinet ought to be
able to swim the Atlantic

His work was a highlight of the show.
He completes the trio which alone
made the perfomance worth listening
to and helped to relieve the famous
hokum tension.
Of the others there is comparatively
little to say inasmuch as they did
not carry the burdens. Marion Leland
was a trifle too ready to jumpat
falling pictures and to go into hyster-
ics over prowling cats. Perhaps it
was the author's fault. The lady in
back of us took her screaming cues
from her in between the details of
the latest faculty gossip. Robert
Wetzel--well you have seen him be-
fore. Thurston Thieme as the ill-
fated hero was a bit disappointing,
but he didn't last long. The rest
were conventional.
The crowd enjoyed ever bit of it
and so did we. But tomorrow or the
next day as we stand in the rush at
the Maj or waiting at the corner lunch
for our coffee and rolls, we might
hear some one say "Beggarman" orl
"Great Catherine" but "The Last
Warning" will be forgotten.

"CRAIG'S WIFE"
A review, by Smith H. Cady, Jr.
If one agrees with George Kelly
that women such as Mrs. Craig do
exist-women whose homes are their
gods, who marry for security and not
for love, who exclude all friends from
the house because they do not fit ini
with their narrow selfishness, who
love their petty ornaments more than
anything else in the world, and who
are totally unfit to play the game of
life-then "Craig's Wife," the Pulitzer
prize play of the season 1925-26, is
an excellent drama. If one finds it,
impossible to understand the mental
workings of such a woman , theni
"Craig's Wife" is a very, clever, ex-
tremely well-written play-but noti-
ing more.
But which ever attitude George Kel-j
ly's play may evoke, the cast which ish
presenting it at the New Detroit this
week is sure to win approval. Chrys-
tal Herne and Charles Trowbridge,
as thme wife and husband whose home
is destroyed by the wife's passion for
her own security and her idolatry of
her possessions, give excellent portray-
als of their parts. Trowbridge, in his
brief but heroic rebellion in the sec-
ond act, when lie deliberately crashes
one of the treasured ornaments,!
scatters cigarette ashes over the sac-
red rugs, and recklessly leans against
the polished piano, is perfect. Miss
Herne, in the very effective ending of I
the play, when she stands in tire
midst of Ier cherished kingdom, de-
serted by her husband and her
friends because of her inherent self-
ishness, and slowly scatters the petals,
of the roses that she despised over
her spotless floor, does one of the
best bits of work seen this season.
And the supporting cast is far, far
above the average.

tamp a load of this wonderful tobacco into the

Cool as a northeast bedroom. Sweet as a
note from the Girl of Girls. Fragrant as a wood-

or parches your throat, no matter how fast you
feed it. You'll smoke pipe-load on pipe-load
with never a regret.
Buy a tidy red tin of P. A. today. Throw
back the hinged lid and breathe deeply of that
real tobacco aroma. Then . . . tuck a neat
wad into the business-end of your jimmy-pipe
and light up. Now you have it . . . that
taste! That's Prince Albert, Fellows!

On second reading, yesterday's art-

It truly savors of "medieval darkness"
when the author exposes his fatalistic
theory of disease as an immutable
