Posted conspiciously about all
University buildings are notices re-
questing that individuals refrain from
smoking while in them. Unfortunate-
ly there are to be found in University
buildings on various occasions more
students smoking than there, are
signs requesting them not to do so.
From a practical point of view this
is unfair to the University, in that if
that fact came to the attention of fire

would immediately be advanced. In-
creased expense would curtail some
worthy University activity. Further
comment seems unnecessary.

avorable script with which Mr.
Skinner was comnpelled to work, the
production was a success, quite whol-
y and without reservation. For in
many respects it served his purposes
admirably. There is but one set-
and this is paramount for a road show;
here are entrances, lutes and busi-
ness that are handed Mr. Skinner
on a platter; and the role of Colonel
Phillipe Bridan is Mr. Froham's lit-
tle gift to the star system.
And Mr. Skinner was not alone in
his triumph. The case; was adequate -
with but one minor exception, and
catching the spirit of the grand man-
ner played to the gallery with every
trick known to the profession. Other
than Mir. Skinner, Jessie Royce Lan-
d s, late prodigy of the Bonset le
actor-factory, in the role of Laura
and Robert Harrison as Jean-Jacques
Rouget, her senile sugar papa were
the most efficient, Miss Landis in the
last act rising to dramatic heights
that were singularly effective.

There are two shows that are never
going to close. "Abie's Irish Rose"
is going to break the world's record
for consecutive performances some-
time in July, and Mr. McIntyre is
presenting a road company of "The
Student Prince" at the Whitney thea-
ter on Monday night. Of all the oper-
ettas that the Brothers Shubert have
produced, this is by far the most suc--
cessful. "The Countess Maritza,"
"Princess Flavia" and the other de-
scendants of this one prolific and
tutelary deity, have all had their mo-
ments, the last named having more
well known prima donna sopranos
turn down the name role than any
other similar production in existence.
But they can't beat "The Student
Prince" for longevity. The same pub-
lie that first thrilled to "Golden
Days," "The Serenade" and the
"Drinking Song" are going to hear
them again and again as long as there
are ambitions baritones to try the
tenor roles. Nothing short of a boy-
cott or an actor's strike will close the
show. Still success means popularity,
and popularity means something--
especially in musical comedy. "The
Student Prince" must have been one
of the best of the Shubert operettas
or it would never have survived the
rigors of the road for these weary
