THURhDAY, MARCH 24, 1927
Night Editor-.JO H. CHAMBERLIN
A new crisis is imminent in Mex
ican-America relations with thean
nouncement by the State departmen
that the smuggling agreement con
eluded a year ago will be termiate
March 28. This agreement prevent
the , shipment of arms into Mexic
without notidation of the Calles gov
ernment. Y'there still remains th
presidential 4mbargo updn arms ship
ments into Mexico, although this ma
be lifted following the termination o
the smuggling arrangement.
With the smugglig arrangemen
still in eft,t, the removal of th
presidential eJbargo would have lit
tie punitive f ct upon the Calle
governmentZjowever, with this agree
ment ended, the way is open for th
administration to exercise consider
able influence upon the Calles govern
ment, for the removal of the presiden
tial embargo on arms would immedi
ately result in increased revolution
ary movements and the possible over
throw of the Calles forces.
The State department maintain
that the termination of the agreemen
is only a warning and not an un
friendly act- in any sense. Tru
enough, it is more or less a threa
designed to bring the Calles govern
ment "into line" in the matter of th
oil and land laws controversy. Whil
possible trade discrimination is men
f # tion as the main reason for the ter
mination of the understanding, asa
matter of fact, a caustic warning i
present in the State department's end
ing of the agreement.
The stigma- of mob riot, so recentl
cast upon the University by a fe
unthinking students, also tainted th
name of Johns Hopkins universit
when some 30 students were reporte
injured in a clash between under
classmen, police, and firemen Monda
night. In fact, the melee reached suc
proportions that appeals were mad
to the governor to call out the stat
The reflection cast upon a univer
sity when such primitive means ar
used by a minority of students for on
purpose or another is made bitterl
obvious by the amount of newspape
publicity devoted to a fracas of thi
sort. When a physical combat break
out disturbing the peace of any near
1v nommunitv nna the nnlice are in

riot at John Hopkins, resulting in
injured students, was likewise "play-
ed up" by even the conservative
dailies throughout the country.
It is deporable that the acts of a
few should bring direct humiliation
upon the university they represent,t
and, embarrassment, indirectly, upon
hundreds of fellow studets who were
as guiltless as an outsidler. Such is
inevitably the case, and it remains for
that small minority to prevent a re-
occurence and further disgrace to
their institution.
When the impulse occurs to resist
law and order, there are usually a
few leaders in the group with enoughf
presence of mind to wish to either
halt, or direct along other and harm-~
less channels, these outbursts of un-
checked enthusiasm. If these same
leaders will only assert the courage
of their convictions during the crisis,
the mad fervor of the mob will sub-
side if not desist.
After having refused to attend the
five power naval conference proposed
by President Coolidge, France's next
decision on disarmament suggestion
coming from this country will con-
cern the dispatch of an unofficial ob-
server to the three party parley which
will be held this summer between
England, Japan, and the United States.
In accord with his informal reply
to the state department, Foreign Min-
ister Briand favors such representa-
tion; but he is opposed by Premier
Poincare as well as by two leaders of
the Nationalist party. The opposition
of the latter is based upon several fac-
tors not the least important of which
is the belief that France will be cor-
nered on the submarine question in
any conference she may attend and be
made to appear "the villain of the
However, if she refuses to be rep-
resented in any way, France will
hardly less appear as the stumbling
block to effective naval disarmament.
d Her attendance, moreover, would have
the decided advantage of clearing up
a the disarmament muddle, and per-
thaps accomplishing something.
Dignity is a terrible thing. Many
people, whom one could actually like,
hide themselves behind a mask of
dignity until one is almost afraid to
speak to them. Much of this dignity
is genuine as an attribute of high po-
sition and prestige; but even when
excusable it becomes tiresome in
It is extremely fortunate, in view of
these circumstances, that there is at
least one place at one time of the year
when everyone loses his dignity and
becomes a human being. Such a place
is the annual Gridiron banquet, and
t the notables who attend will be the
d A "razz-fest" such as this need not
be bitter to be effective, and the ban-
- quet will undoubtedly be in a spirit
of most whole-hearted fellowship. But
e. that is just the point, where dignity
is inconsistent with fellowship, dig-
y nity will have to be abandoned, and
f the regrettable feature is that the
Gridiron banquet comes but once a
e The opportunity for our "big" men
t to see themselves as others may see

I to them, while the opportunity to
C speak with impunity of the shortcom-
ings of those "higher up" will be of
- inestimable value.
i- Certain far seeing individuals, act-

- ing in the form of the National Crime
commission, have advanced a step
s further in the battle between society
nt and the organized criminal element.
~ In the hope of obtaining uniform reg-
e ulations for the sale of weapons
t among the states, the commission has
- submitted a model firearms bill to all
e state legislatures now in session. It
e prohibits the sale of specified weap-
ons, which would be useless to any
- law abiding citizen, and restricts the
a' sale - of other weapons to those few
s who might have legitimate use for
- them. By the term of the bill all
manufacturers and dealers would be
licensed, and all purchasers of re-
volvers would have to obtain permits.
y In an attempt to effectively check
w gun-toting and bootleg firearms traf-
e fic, the proposed measure provides a
y severe penalty for the possession of a
d revolver without a permit. Likewise, a
- penalty has been placed on the com-
y mission of a felony while armed with
1 a dangerous weapon.
e Under the model bill progressive
o sentences are provided for each suc-
-essive felony, until, on the fourth
- conviction, the criminal either could
e or could not be given a life sentence!
e at the discretion of the judge.
y While all its features might not be
r adaptable to all the states, it provides
is the necessary safeguards for the im-
s mediate solution of the problem and

This Gridiron Knights affair ought
to find plenty of material1to talk
about. So many people have been
pulling boners around this University
in the past few months that the sup-
ply is inexhaustible.
* * *
We think the Union ought to see to
it that all chinaware and other pos-
sible weapons are removed from the
tables before the bouquet-passing
* * *
The worst of it is that the campus
politicians get off easy. They don'tI
start their stunts until after the ban-
quet is out of the way.sThe Gridiron
was probably the reason they set
the spring elections as near summer
time as possible.
S* *
If there is going to be any of the
Truth about the Union stuff brought

up at this banquet, they better
it until after the meal is over.
Union officials are liable to make1
do without dessert.

"The Adelphi gang," remark-
ed the Cynical Senior yesterday,!
"Is going to have plenty of ma-
terial to talk about in this de-
bate on the worthiness of the
S. C. A."
* * *
We just got it straight from the
chairman that Harry Tillotson is go-
ing to attend the banquet, in person.I
Let's hope the committee makes him
wait in line for his ticket, and then
gives him a seat down at the otherl
end of the hall, away from every-
thing, including the kitchen.
* * *
They might scare him a little by
sending back his application for a
ticket, with the neatly printed noticel
saying that "the Alumni quota of
tickets for the Gridiron Banquet was
filled January 1, and we are rteurn-I
ing your money herewith."

And come to think of it, that isn't
so improbable, after all. For those
tickets are limited in number, and
there are plenty of B. M. O. C's flood-
ing the mails now with their appli-
cations. The first come are the firstI
to get them, just as in a tear gas raid.

A review, by Philip Brooks.
Charles Livingstone is not the best
actor on the campgs, but for the
sake of those insane persons who
revel in precise classifications he is
second or third at any rate. He is per-
haps the most sincere, the most able,
but too human to be the best.
As his rival, one of the other
"bests," Robert Wetzel, turned in his
usual excellently finished interpre-
tation. He carried the part of contrast
to the lead with considerable convic-
tion . Thomas Denton, Kenneth King,
and Lyman Crane, who by the way
provided the necessary offset in a
most capable fashion, were all re-
markably well adapted to their parts
-a feat which has become conven-
tional Shuterian productions.
William Morgan Lewis, Jr., made a
commendable effort and gave a sincere
interpretation, but he seems to be out
of place in feminine leads, and it is
difficult to understand his taking two
in succession. Both in appearance
and in appreciation of the requisite
ladylike traits, he is decidedly lack-
Lewis was fortunate in his lines.
Like all the others in the first three
acts of "To The Ladies," they were
funny enough to carry themselves.
In the last act there appears a more
serious tone, undoubtedly necessary
to express the significance of the play,
but which is, however, hard to appre-
ciate after the humor of dialogue and
situation preceding. It is still humor
-but of a much deeper nature, and
after the first three acts classify the
play as light comedy, this seems a
little out of harmony.

Due to an extensive concert series,
which have been planned for next sea-
son, Guy Maier, a member of the
pianoforte faculty of the University
School of Music has announced his
resignation to take effect at the end
of this semester. During the last few
seasons Mr. Maier has been increas-
ingly in demand, and with his playing
partner, Lee Pattison, has been engaged
for several coast to coast tours. At
present their program includes a sum-
mer tour of concerts in England,
France, Holland and Germany.
Mr. Maier's students, also at work
in the'same field, will present a re-
cital a week from tonight in Patten-
gill auditorium. Miss Ethel Hauser
and Elizabeth Davies, who are work-
ing on several two-piano selections
have already branched into the pro-
fessional field, having recently com-
pleted similar work of the east. Dalies
Franz will also appear in a group of
solo numbers.

A review, by Albert ice Leventhal.
First of all, we muct confess to an
almost negligible acquaintanceship
with the French stage of today. A
farce or two which we witnessed
many years ago, several of the more
gruesome of the Grand Guignol plays,
an an astounding exhibition given in
a New York vaudeville house by the
'Six Tumbling Poirets, Acrobats', had
left us holding grimly to the belief
that the success of contemporary
French productions depended on the
franctic gesticulations of the actors,
the size of their mustaches, and the
number of bedroom scenes.
Consequently, the delightful and

wholly comprehensive performances
given, last night, by the members of
the Cercle Francais proved most en-
lightening. While we cannot answer
for the subtlety of the one-act plays,
we can, at least, vouch for the re-
freshing and spontaneous quality of
their humor. "La Recommandation,
by Max Maurey, afforded the members
of the French department ample op-
portunities in which to display their
undeniable histrionic talents. Pro-
fessor Talamon, as the bombastic
and ebullient "Directeur" was per-
feet, as was Professor Canfield, play-
ing the cringing M. Mine. Professor
Kenyon, the other member of the ir-
repressible trio, added greatly to theE
success of this comedy of the French,
business world, as Victor, the Di-
recteur's secretary.
"Rosalie," also by Maurey, was
made by the splendid acting of Sam-
uel Bonell, playing the irascible M.
Bol. Dorothy Tisch as Mme. Bol, and
Charlotte Wardell as the unintelligent
serving-maid who, nevertheless, was
able -to 'substantially provide for her

What is Adelphi?*
Why is Alumni Memorial hall?
What have the following in com-


mon: (a) the Gridiron Banquet; (b)
a Chicago political battle; (c) a
"catty session."
Underline Mle correct word or words:
4. Spring (is here; will be here
soon; is a fake).
5. The University was founded in
(1817; 1817; 1817; 1927).
*Note: This is by far the hardest,
question yet. It won't count against
your score.
* * *
As long as so many people are wor-
rying about the actual date of the
founding of this University, ROLLS
felt that some unprejudiced body
should undertake a survey to discover
the true facts.
* * *
The Regents are naturally preju-
diced in favor of 1837. If it is proven
to be 1817, they will have to go to all
the expense of changing the seal.
* * *
And the alumni have gotten in so
many arguments with graduates of
other universities about which school
is the oldest, that they want to make
good on their bets by moving the date
back a couple decades.
* * *
But ROLLS doesn't care either way.
We would like to have the date of
founding put as early as possible so
that there will be some justification
for the ancient buildings decorating
our campus, but on the contrary, we
hate to admit that we belong to a
college which has existed for more
than a hundred years and hasn't im-
proved a bit in the whole time.
* * *
If we can't settle the thing definite-
ly, we can at least start all over
again this year, and change the date
on the-seal to 1927. Things are only!
getting started around here anyway.

> salesman to store manager

"I graduated from the University of
Michigan in 1922. On leaving school,
I held a position as salesman with
the Curwin Accountancy Co. in
Cleveland, O. While I waa making
a good salary at that time, I could
not see much opportunity for future
I had always been interested in re-
tail merchandising, and was convinc-
ed, after investigating the field, that
the Kresge Co. 'stood out' above
all similar concerns.
So in Sept. 1922, I started work in
the stock room of the Kansas City.
Mo. store at a much lower salary
than I previously had earned. While
in training, I received several offers

was receiving, from friends who coulid
not 'see' my job. However,. today,
I am still firmly convinced of the
wisdom of my decisicn. I have
reached a position as manager of the
Muncie, .Id. store, where, I have
not onlylincreased my earnings but
my opportunity for future advance-
ment is still limited only by my ability
and effort.
I have always found the Kresge
Company most fair and liberal in all
my dealings with them, and know
them to be one organization where
results, and not intlue~ce, orr,'pull'.

anyone's ambitions.
We now have a few positions open-at

and when qualified, will become store
