Though in the opinion of some ob-

played a particularly creditable part
in the whole proceedings, the final
settlement has come about largely
through the efforts of the mediator
appointed by President Coolidge.
General Moncada, with his decision to
suspend hostilities has declared that
he will enter actively into the cam-

government at the polls in 1928. The
action on his part is creditable andl
fair; and it gives promise that some

The Washington government, how-
ever, still has a very real and definite
responsibility in alowing the issue
of the 1928 election to stand without
interference. American marines will
patrol the polling places, and the
voters wil be counted by American
citizens. If, under these eircum-
stances, the Liberal forces are suc-
cessful, it will be both a duty and an
obligation for the United States to
recognize them and extend them most
sincere and hearty cooperation.

SUNDAY, MAY 8, 1927
In his characteristic' mood, Profes-
sor Hobbs has written an open letter
to the Student Chirstian association
refusing to contribute to its fresh air
camp fund because of its alleged paci-
fistic tendencies Hazily referring to
some conference between the officials
o the organization and representa-
tives of an Army and Navy club, he
practically calls upon all those who
would not see the foundation of thel
nation undermined to refrain from as-
sisting some needy youngsters to a
pleasant vacation
It is very obvious, of course, that,
the head of the geology department
has merely taken this opportunity to
discuss a favorite subject and strike
at the S. C. A. again for bringing Mr.
Eddy to Ann, Arbor. The theories of
preparedness, if any, which are held
by the officials of the association,
should have nothing to do with their
commendable projcet at Patterson
lake. In fact, it is almost inconceiv-
able that the 'head of an organization-
of recognized learning should so con-
fuse these two ideas; it is more sur-
prising that anyone should keep a de-
serving boy from needed recreation
by dissuading response to the appeal
of the S. C. A.
Professor Hobbs, it seems, does not
completely understand the art of pub-
licity. If Mr. Eddy, for instance, had
been allowed to appear here with only
the usual press notices, he would prob-
ably have been heard by no more than
500 people. As it was, he spoke to
5,000 in just one gathering in HillI

A review, by Philip C. Brooks
A charming air of assurance-neat-
ly adapted to the clever lines of Fred-
erick Lonsdale's play-make Amy
Loomis' performance in "The Last of
Mrs. Cheney" attractive and admir-
able. Her work, as well as that of
Reynolds Evans, gives the impression
of a professional finish which is rarely
seen in that of campus actors. Able
as the latter may be, they never seem
quite as little worried by fear of their
audience, quite as at home on the
stage, as Miss Loomis and Evans. The
attitude is a general one among the
Rockford Players, but is especially
noticeable in these two. It makes it
much easier to enjoy the play.
The name part here is not as at-
tractive a character as Miss Loomis'
role as the Duchess in "The Fire -
brand," but, like the whole play, it is
more pleasant. The whole tone of
Lonsdale's work is quite congenial.j
The play is not hard to appreciate.
The setting and types are common tol
everyday social life. But that involves
in itself a difficulty for the author-
the liffculty of avoiding having the
play become common. That has been
very niely handled here, with an
agreeable sophistication r u n n i n g
Reynolds Evans is a decidedly con-
vincing character. A certain bril-
liance, in interpretation makes him,
quite impresive, as a Florentine Duke,!
and English gentleman, if you wish to
call him that, or presumably in almost
any part.
'The Last of Mrs. Cheney" offers
splendid examples of the artful bluffer
-,a delightful person wherever you
meet him. It demonstrates beautifully
the thesis that while we know most
society is in a measure deceitful, self-
ish, and insincere, it is nevertheless
enjoyable and we excuse what we de
not know.
