Welcome, Ohio Wesleyan! It

acts as host to the Institution with.
ivhich its director of athletics was
formerly connected. With like
feeling, it welcomes Nie mutual
renewal of atiletica relations on
the gridiron after a lapse of 22
years which, it is hoped, will long
be continued.

Interest to thousands of Michigan
students and alumni. This year will
see a great change in view of the fact
that Coach Fielding H. Yost is no
longer active coach, and additional
interest will be evoked in view of the
fact that Coache "Tad" Wieman is at
the helm for the first time.
At the present time, other school's
prospects for capturing the Big Ten
championship are considered in coY
tain cases to be brighter; Michigan

emphasize the fact that whether or
not Michigan is at the top, even at the
bottom, the "Michigan spirit," evi-

will be one when such an attitude
should be evidenced. The man who

tion to do so, will more than ever be
in a posltion to appreciate it. Feeling

DECADENCE, By Maxim Gorky;
Vew Lork, Robert M. McBride and
ompany; 1927; $2.50.
"Decadence" is like the beery kiss
f a bawdy woman; it is a hearty
Smack and reeks of more things than
meet the eye. For Gorky loves life
with glorious abandon and the life of
which he writes is by no means con-
ention bound.
The story opens with the emancipa-
ion of the serfs in Russia in 1861, and
carries with hardly a sense of time
through the decadence of the peasant
until the break up of political Russia
into anarchy. Time is not the es-
sential thing. What Gorky deals with
is the disintegration of peasant per-
sonality under the strain of a useless
freedom, and in the end the soul is
dead and the people chatter with a
nameless fear.
The scope of the book is epic, run-
ning through the birth and death of
three generations with always the
main theme of decay as a background.
But the almost violent repression
which is so characteristic of Gorky,
and with which he strangles even the
most dramatic moments, leaves in the
end a sense of immense power and
His style is simplicity itself, but the
vitality with which he writes makes
his drama echo long after the exact
page is passed.
"Decadence" is splendid,-but hard-
ly a book for the tea-table.

The most outstanding dramatic en-
tertainment in Detroit next week
seems to be the appearance of Grace
George in "The Road to Rome" which
will enter the Garrick Monday night.
This show is Robert Emmet Sherwood's
conception of the manner in which a
lady saved Rome--and how. At
present it is furnishing Jane Cowl
with an able vehicle in New York,
where it still continues into the new
Mr. Sherwood's adaptation is done
in the John Erksine manner-that of
presenting history properly psychol-
ogized in a modern overtone, and with
an amusing use of topical idioms in
the diglogue. "The Road to Rome"
commences its drama with Hanibal
at the end of his ten years' march on
the city. The young Greek wife of
Rome's dictator 'flees to a place of
safety. But once out of her plump
husband's fatuous view, her curiosity
-and maybe something else, guides
her to the conqueror's tent. By the
next morning the lady has persuaded
Hanibal to turn back from Rome, and
a woman's yearning to influence a
man's destinies toward an idealistic
Godhood is fulfilled. At any rate I

A review, by Thomas J. Dougall
(Editor's Note: The appearance of
George White's musical comedy "Man-

opening in that field this season,with
the possible exception of "Good

When George White produced the

George has everything that his revues
have had-good comedy, good sing-
ing, good dancing and a marvelous
list of "names"; but it is also afflict-
ed with a tremendous liability--an al-
most unbelievably banal book. No
one pays a great deal of attention to
it, though, and as the presence of Ed
Wynn makes it impossible to take
anything seriously, this deficiency
may not affect the show's chances of
Wynn is adroitly and completely
comic. He is not as good as he was

that on his material; and this will
probably get better. His support in-
