With the intensive emphasis on col-
legiate affair which exists in a collegiate
atmosphere, it is very easy indeed for a
student to neglect entirely the fact that
there is an outside world in which world
events are occurring. It is easy for him,
for instance, to know the name of every
member of the football team without
once realizing that the League of Na-
tions is planning a new disarmament con-
ference, and the net result of this lop-
sidedness can not help but be a perver-
sion of vauiesr which will prove detri-
mental to the college trained men and
In order to aid in avoiding this situa-
tion, and in order to give the university
students of the nation an incentive for
watching the ebb and tide of national and
international events,;the New York

Times, during the past two years has
sponsored a current events contest in the
leading universities of the United States.
This contest, started in a modest way,
has now been extended to 20 universi-
ties, and Michigan, as in previous years,
is one of the participants.
The prizes offered are generous in-
deed. In each college and university there
will be given $15o and a medal as first
prize, $75 as a second prize, and $25 as
third prize. In addition to this offer, the
best paper written in any of the 20 col-
leges will receive in addition an award,
of $Soo.
The University here owes it to her;
reputation to take advantage of this re-
markable opportunity offered her. Mich-;
igan should have at least 100 participants
in this contest, for if nothing mcre than;
an incentive to follow current history is
gained, all those entering will be well re-,
paid. The questions asked will cover the
period of a whole year. The time to
begin working on them is now. The
faculty committee is already at work,
and all that is needful to make the con-;
test a complete success at this Univer-
sity is co-operation of the student body.-
Michigan has not a reputation for fail-
ing in worthwhie enterprises; she must
not fail in this one.'
Hotel men of the United States have
sworn, through the medium of their na-
tional convention in session at Kansas
it. 'u that thev have indivhiuall

large body of representative men, and
it would be suicidal for a convention of
hotel men to make a statement which
pointed the way to any other conclusion
than that above. But the phrasing of
the professional credo is somewhat dulled
by first hand examinations. Especially is
this true in a neighboring city where the
number of hotels with unofficial bars at-
tached is exceedingly high, and where the
card of admission is the key to an eve-
ning of alcoholic indulgence safe from
the eyes of the law. At least more to
the point the Kansas City convention de-
claration is the result of a report made by
a separate committee, which states that
"there should be discouraged any prac-
tice of patrons which might be construed
as a bare-faced defiance of the law."
With the approval by the State Depart-
ment of General Jose Moncada, Liberal
leader, as a candidate for president of
Nicaragua at the impending elections, the
star of liberal power seems to be in the
ascendency in Central America, and the
progressive government appears to be on
the horizon for revolution-scarred Nicar-
The Conservatives, according to Mon-
cada, are split into a half dozen or more
factions and the radicals under Sandino
have been discredited. To an impartial
observer, at least, it looks as though
the Liberals stand an excellent chance of
riding into power.
The trouble with Nicaragua thus far
seems to have been the lack of dynamic
leadership toward any definite policy.
As a result of this weakness and vacil-
lation it has been necessary for the United
States to interfere time and again until
the Nicaraguans themselves must doubt
whether they have minds of their own.
But Moncada promises different things-
he promises religious freedom, educa-
tion, stability; he promises, in short, to
awaken Nicaragua from her lethargy,
and to form in Central America some-
thing which has never been formed there
before-a nation. The State Depart-
ment is to be commended for recognizing
his legitimate candidacy.
Conversations on the question of out-
standing importance to Egypt and Great
Britain are about to begin between Sir
Austen Chamberlain and Abdul Khalek
Sarwat Pasha, Egypt's Prime Minister,
who has just arrived in London. While
it is little expected that the conversations
will result in an immediate agreement on
the four controversial topics to be con-
sidered, it is hoped, nevertheless, that it
may be possible to find a basis of settle-
ment at least on one of them which in
turn may prove the way to an agreement
on the others.
the talks will center around the fa-
mous four "reserved points" which Great
Britain set aside for settlement by ne-
gotiation at some future date when it
declared Egypt independent in February,'
1922. These are, namely: the security of
the British Empire's communications
the defense of Egypt against foreign ag-
gression; the protection of foreign inter-
ests and minorities in Egypt; and the
control of the Sudan.
Sarwat Pasha himself is said to be
anxious for settlement. With minds of
men such as Lord Lloyd, the British
High Commissioner in Egypt, who would
take part in the final negotiations, and
Sir Austen Chamberlain, concentrating
on the specific problem at hand it would
not be surprising if important negotia-
tions should result from the parley.

The first event on the regular pro-

be a gigantic banquet, as follows:

much to the delight of the audience. It
was produced before the war, but for all
the passage of time it is a splendid pic-
ture of a delightfully damn-fool wife.

dramatic construction but I must admit
that if it is theoretically bad, actually it
hilariously funny with Woelhaf putting
just enough slapstick into his interpre-
tation of the "Shenarist" to make him a
vivid personality. Woelhaf does so dazz-
lingly, in fact, that in his subsequently in-
significant actions he seems weak. But
that is perhaps the writers' fault for mak-
ing him so startling in the first place.
Phyllis Loughton's performance of
Dulcy herself, the lovably dumb wife is
a splendid combination of clever acting
and sustained emotion. For the moment
she is lovely Dulcy. The only reflection
that arises is that the real Dulcy proba-
bly had less difficulty in handing out her
terrible line. But if Miss Loughton is by
nature not a fluent chatter-box she gives
a splendid performance of one.
Two splendid bits are Lillian Setch-

Not like this, of course

(Minnesota Alumni Weekly)
Michigan has joined the list of Big Ten
Universities prohibiting the student auto-
mobile. Only in exceptional cases here-
after will the student on the Wolverine
campus be allowed to propel himself about
with the use of the gasoline vehicle.
This action of the Michigan board of Re-
gents was" based upon the large number
of student auto accidents taking place in
Ann Arbor last year.
At Minnesota, the power be thanked,
no such action will be instituted. Presi-
dent Coffman feels, and rightly so, that
the auto is a student necessity. Where
more than 6o per cent of our students live
in the Twin Cities and go home every
night, the use of an auto is an absolute
necessity to facilitate the rapid move-
ment of traffic.
We at Minnesota are constrained to
extend condolence to the students at
Michigan feeling that Ahe wiser move on
the part of the Wolverine regents would
have been to punish the most serious of-
fenders, depriving them of their cars,
and allowing the others the use of the
auto as long as their conduct is consist- I
ent with the accepted University code.

Building." The architects will probably

of the manuscript, and all these things
pertain to the book of B. H. Lehman
"The Lordly Ones." Without an atti-
tude which enables one to appreciate the
subtlety of the sophistication of the work
'the reader may easily find himself re-
pulsed by ideas and suggestions of the a
work. But with the attitude, is is pos-
sible to appreciate the sophisticated,
slightly cynical tone of the whole. And
in excusing, the ideas and suggestions
preparatory to appreciation the reader
finds that he is delving back into those
hidden recesses of his mind and thinking.
Therefore Lehman has justification for
the book in inducing his readers to think,
if for no other reason.
