four days after the unsatisfactory re-
ply was received from the latter. Un-
til China's political situation becomes
clarified, then, the policy of deferred
action has become the only sane and
practical conclusion.
British recognition of this fact in-
sures the Chinese freedom to fight out
their difficulties, and, perhaps, to es-
tablish a central government without1
the intervention of outside powers. As1
such, it also means that the Coolidget
policy toward China has been victor-3
ious, and that the United States has
gained another point in the leadership
of world politics. l
THE IRON HAND
Mexico, turbulent sore spot on the
otherwise peaceful continent of North
America, has apparently found its
master. Revolts are to be outlawed;t
the arrogance of the Catholic church{
is to be suppressed, and 'not only are
Mexicans allowing this to happen but,
they are cooperating.1
There comes a time in the life of
every weak government when a man
reaches the helm who can not be in-
timidated, and who can master the
situation. Germany had its Bismarck,
Italy its Mussolini, and Mexico today
has its Calles.
. The odds that the president of the
Mexican republic faces are immense.
The organized Catholicism of Mexico
and the world oppose him. In the
face of This, Calles, the iron hand of
Mexico, proceeds and is apparently
succeeding in freeing his country
from the shackles of reactionary in-
stitutions.
Already his armies are in the field,
and General Obregon is now organiz-
ing a separate force of 20,000 for the
battle to the finish. Train outrages
and banditry are to end at all costs;
and methods which are high handed
become justifiable in opposing bigotry.
Calles himself must take care, how-
ever, lest he become drunk with the
power that is apparently his. To con-
trol the pres, the government, the
army, and even the ljves of a nation
is a position of tremendous power, and
one which is capable of misuse as well
as achievement. So far there is noth-
ing to suggest this misuse. Calles
seems strong enough to suppress the
degenerate rebels and this is an entire-
ly worthy cause; if he remains sane
and returns the power he has assumed
to the sovereign people of the state
when he is finished using it in their
defense, he will be a savior of his
people, and the greatest man Mexico
has ever produced; if he fails in this
trust, however, he will go to that in-
evitable doom of the ruthless dictator
-the doom of complete defeat
After vainly trying to find some
Chinese faction which it might hold
responsible for the Nanking outrages,
England has decided that pressure
really shouldn't be brought to bear
on the Chinese.

EST'ABLISHIED
Professor Hobbs has failed the S. C.
A. He refused to contribute to their
Fresh Air camp, for reasons which he
has broadcast recently, and so we feel
that in some manner this loss must be
made up.
It is therefore our honor and privi.
lege to announce ithe establishment of
the WILLIAM HERBEIT HOBS
FOUNDATION FOR THE BENEFIT
'OF THE S. C. A. FRESH AIR CAMP.

The basis of this Foundation will be
the Rolls' Stadium Bond fund which
collected $1.14 last Fall toward the
purchase of a bond in order to put
two representative students in seats
on the fifty yard line.

All through the year we have been
trying to find something to donate the
Fund to. and never succeeded. Now I

There will be absolutely no strings
attached to The Hobbs Foundation
gift to the camp-no statue of the
geology expert will be crected by thel
terms of the donation, nor will it be
necessary for the S. C. A. to put up
a rifle range in order to receive theF
fund.
We are sure that Professor Hobbs
would like the gift to be made without
any flourish what-so-ever, because he
is a quiet man, and, while there is
distinctly no "negative" characteristics
about him, still he doesn't like pub-
licity.
Since the authority on geology is
now on his way to Greenland, he will
not be able to take part in the cere-E
monies at the time of the donation;
I but we are sure that he will be willing
to broadcast a nice speech over the
radio at that time.

"THE INTIATE STRANGERS"
A review, by Marian Welles
"I prefer to," said the ,adolescent
Johnnie White, as he hesitatingly took
Aunt Isabel Stuart's hand, and if it
w^-e not too great a pun, we would!
like to take Aunt Isabel's hand, too,
and say "I prefer to." Aunt Isabel, a
most delightfully mocking and whim-1
sical creature was such an intimate
character that all her little pranks
and schemes made her the confidente
not only of Johnny but of all
"inspired" people including most of
her audience.
The Ijendersonian program seemed!
to place most of the emphasis upon
the flapper that broke God's mould
lbut while the flapper was consistent
and a"complete balancing agent for
fifty or a hundred or even a thousand
maiden nieces and great nieces, still
the character of the wise and dear
Aunt Isabel was the dominating note
in "The Intimate Strangers." AndI
while it took the admirable Mr. Aimes
ten hours and thirty seven minutes
plus a chicken sandwich and a hard
boiled egg to get acquainted with the
lady, it took her audience something
like five minutes of passing conver-
sation between a station master with
a flat shiny goatee and the nephew of
the remarkable William Aimes, until
she entered the rather well-conceived
junction station, to know her per-
sonally.
To generalize, and according to
Plato, we achieve the real in the gene-
ral, "The Intimate Strangers" was
truly an intimate production, syrn-
pathetically interpreted as if the play-
ers received as much enjoyment from'
the playing as we, the audience, did
from looking on. It leads to the ob-
servation that oftentimestthe greatest
happiness comnes from the smallest
things. The play is light and without
doubt a child of the times probably
destned to end its existence with the
same times, but it has a spirit that
contributes to any age. "The Intimate
Strangers" is delicious fun worthy of
a personal appreciation rather than
criticism.

VOTE TODAY
Every student who registered
last week is entitled to cast a vote
n the all-amp s elections today.
Voting is a right accorded only
to those who are adjudged worthy
of governing themselves; today,
the student body may prove its
ability for self-g vernument by its
activity at the campus polls.
Pick the 'nen for canipus offices
whose ability or previous accomp-
lishmlents have, denlonstrated their
fitness to handle the work in-
volved. Cast your vote for the
best men so that campus self-gov-
ernment may be effective.
HIGH SCHOOL DEBATERS
University students will once more
have the opportunity to accord a warm
welcome to a visiting delegation. In
the last few days the high school rep-
resentatives at the Michigan Inter-
scholastic Press association were en-
tertained in, such a manner to leave
little doubt but that the prestige of
the University was increased through-
out the state. Tonight at the cham-
pionship high school debate between
Ann Arbor and Albion high schools,
another chance is offered for adding
to the high esteem in which the Uni-
versity is generally held.
Hundreds of high school students
from all over the state have signified
their intention of attending the final
contest in Hill auditorium. They will
come here with certain ideals of col-
lege life, eager to observe what it
has to offer them in the future. The
manner of their reception by the Uni-
versity students is bound to affect
their opinion of this institution, and
it is therefore both a privilege and ob-
ligation to see that the visitors today
are granted a most cordial welcome.
BRITAIN WILL WAIT
After two weeks consideration, Eng-
land has decided to follow the lead of
the United States in holding up new
action on the Nanking outrages pend-
ing the internal political and miliary
developments in China.
This conclusion is merely a practical
recognition of 'the condition brought
on by the split in the Cantonese ranks
and the ejection of the radical ele-
ment. As she intimates in her note
to the Cantonese foreign minister,i

ANOTHER REVIEW
To The Editor:
Last Wednesday "La Sonnette D'Al-
arme," a three-act comedy by Messrs.
M. Hennequin and R. Coolus was offer-
ed to us by the "Cercle Francais"
Players at the Mimes. The following
morning one could read in The Daily
a supposed review of the play, by a
supposed devotee of the stage and a
supposedly well-equipped amateur
critic. He thought the production was
good because the French professors
and instructors "laughed." His lilli-
putian intelligence (or perhaps "spirit"
is a better word) hovered over the
audience for a few minutes, not notic-
ing what was happening on the stage,
giving but little attention to the actors'
demeanor, ignoriing the clearness of
their enunciation or their few defec-
tive but quite excusable mispronuncia-
tions, etc.
Mr. Bonnel, as a martyr of night-
clubs and of the wiles of a woman,
was really the most convincing actor
on the stage. Mr. Russell Reed showed
himself perhaps too parasitic, too
shoulder shrugging, not sufficiently
natural as a "gai viveur." Messrs.
Thomas Reed and Lee handled their
roles well. Mr. Meader, as the victim
of unrequited love, was persuasive.
We would have liked to see Mr. Thieme
more often: he was natural and his
voice and his pronunciation were es-
pecially good. Mr. Fruhauf and Mr.
Hinkley played well.
Miss Tisch, as Simone, often lacked
expression, should have been more
ardent, and should have tried to show
less her desire to "lord" it over Boby
and his friends. Miss Burt was con-
vincing as the emancipated provincial.
Her pronunciation was excellent. Miss
Crampton overdid her part, burlesque-)
ing too much, but she deserves sincere

AN OPEN LETTER
Women's League,
Building Fund Committee:
I was surprised to note that you are
asking for money for a Women's
league building. how can you appeal
to students of this campus for money
after you actually sold playing cards?
Think of it: playing cards! I am
surprised that all these prominent
professors are backing a fund which
turned to the lowly gambler for money.
Why should we have a League build-
ing built out of playing cards? The
public ought to know the manner in
which your fund has been earned.
Would you want ministers contribut-
ing to a fund made up partly of the
weapons of the bridge table? I have
talked with some of your leaders, and
discovered that they were not willing
to discuss this weighty matter on the
public platform, and so you see that
they are afraid to face the isue.
I refuse to contribute to your fund.
So there!
-Professor Pugilistic.
A TAG FOR hOBBS
One of the pass-the-bucket boys in
the Fresh Air campaign yesterday re-
ported that a student dropped in a do-
nation and handed him this note:
"This is my second dollar today.
Please give the little red tag to Pro-
fessor Hobbs. His letters called it
forth."
* * *
Along the same line, we understand
that Coach Steve Farrell, immediately
upon reading Professor Hobbs' letter
in The Daily, sent a five dollar check.

There are times when melodrama
becomes tiresome-especially in a sea-
son when most of the seasonal suc-
cesses have been of the type. Comedy
Club began with "The Last Warning"
-which had all the tumult and stri-
dent noise of the five and ten cent
mystery thriller. Later Mimes brought I
forth Karel Capek's "R. U. R"-a
much better production, but one hard-
ly prosperous for the producers. And
the latest is "The Green Goddess," to
be done by the Rockford Players to-
night> Friday night and Saturday
night.
The Archer play, however, has some
exceptional characteristics which
should bring it above the level. It
varies the usual theatrical diet withI
unnatural excitement and uncommon
dramatic speed-a welcome fillip in
the theatrical round. And although
the melodrama has almost usurped
the professional stage this season-
for instance, "Broadway," "The Spid-
er," "Crime," "Spread Eagle," "Set a
Thief"-and "Fog"-nevertheless the
Players' production should be extraor-
dinarily good. Most of the good old
tricks are used-seduction, torture,
murder . . . . down to the last
detail, but it makes excelent theatre,
as the saying goes.
