lation from the Russian of Leonid

tenpting to keep his ideals stainless,
but is laughed at and ridiculed by
every one until he Is driven to com-
mit suicide. There are over 25 people
in the cast. The costumes for the pro-
ductionhave been designed from those
originally used in the Theater Guild
presentation, and everything has been
followed in the closest detail. Sceen-
ery and costumes have both been de-
signed and built by members of the
Play Productions organization.
Seats for the play are all reserved
and are priced at 50 and 75 cents.

E. E. SLOSSON FINDS OPPORTUNITIES
FOR COSMOPOLITA N EDUCA TION HERE;

I

Opportunities for cosmopolitan edu-
cation at the University are the out-
standing features of interest here as
seen by Edwin E. Slosson, author of
"Creative Che~mistry" and editor of
the Science Service, of Washington,
D. C., who is visiting Ann Arbor for
a few, days. "It is an old saying,"
according to Dr. Slosson, "that a stu-
dent learns more from his classmates
than he does from the professors. If
there is any truth in that, the Michi-
gan student has the best corps of in-
structors of any educational institu-
tion in the country."
Dr. Slosson, who is on a lecture tour
for the Science Service, has visited
Ann Arbor before, in the capacity of
a guest lecturer in the journalism de-
partment, then under Prof. F. N.
Scott. At that time Dr. Slosson was
on the faculty of the Columbia univer-
sity school of journalism.
Dr. Slosson attended a seminar con-
ducted by his son, Prof. Preston W.
Slosson of the history department.
"I had the luck," he said, "to hear a
discussion of the 'rights of minorities'
clause in the League of Nations coven-
ant led by a Chinese woman studen~t,
who gave her talk in excellent English
and with evident familiarity with the
subject."
"Your great President Angell, who.
was himself a great diplomatist, made
the University foremost in the field of
international affairs, and I am glad
to see the the University is keeping
its lead in that field," he continued.
"Education," in Dr. Slosson's opin-
ion, "should mean a broadening of
interests and contacts, but unfortuna-
tely some colleges have the opposite
effect in that the student is kept
strictly confined for four years to
the intimate and exclusive association
with a selected group of his own
nationality, type of mind, and social
class. In the University of Michigan
on the contrary, the student is brought
into contact with representatives of
-all races, creeds, classes, and nation-
alities."
"The student here can become
broad," Dr. Slosson continued, "if he
will improve his opportunities, take

private lessons from teachers of his
own age coning from all parts of the
world. He can get their point of view
and an understanding of their racial
characteristics as he could not get
from books or even from ordinary;
tourist travel."
"A student at the University can
take a course in the living geography
of the whole world, because he can I
find here representatives probably of
every important division of the
globe," he stated.
Dr. Slosson lamented the fact that!
"Probably students do not realize or
take advantage of the unique opportu-j
nities of a cosmopolitan university as1
compared with a restricted class col-
lege. The hundreds of Chinese stu-
dents, for example, who have been'
educated at the University will have a
better understanding of the character
and intentions of the American peo-
ple, and can act as our interpreters in
the Far East."
Dr. Slosson's present tour is one of
a number he has made recently for
the Sicence Service, of which he has
been the head since 1921. This or-
ganization was founded at that time
for the purpose of spreading informia-
tion on the natural sciences through
every possible means, newspapers,
magazines, lectures, radio, and its own
group of publications which it syndi-
cates throughout the country.
