e It has becme customary recently
to think of the city service organiza-
tions such as the Family Welfare bu-
reau, Y. M.. C. A., and the Salvation
Army and otlprs as instruments
'part from c rity because where a
few years agb each conducted an an-
nual drive for funds with which to
carry on its work, now each receives
its budget demands through the com-
munity chest fun-.
At the beginning of the late war,
two American cities, Cleveland and
'Cincinnatti, had adopted this plan as
a means of relieving themselves of
continuous dries and at the same
time providing for each of'its welfare
organizations, Duringthe war and
the years following, this system spread
across the dciuntry and now 'is in use
in most cities. The past week has
seen the Detroit drive nearing com-
pletion and tomorrow, Ann Arbor opens
its annual community fund drive. Its
object is worthy and deserves all the
support that those ,who are willing
and able can give it.

Since the forces of Labor first bound
themselves into union organizations.
for the promotion of their interests,
and since the first strike was invoked
in a labor dispute, the threat of in-
junction and arbitrary coercion by
the courts has hung like a suspended
axe over the heads of labor organ-
izers. Through three decades of la-
bor disputes the threat of injunction.
has steadily rolled up prestige 'and
power, like a gathering avalanche, to
the point where even the physical
mastery of the classes falters.
Now the issue has apparently come
to its final struggle, however. Fol-
lowing the recent action of the Amer-
ican Federation of Labor condemning
the injunction, the Interborough Rapid
Transit company of New York has
endeavored to obtain a court order
enjoining the Amalgamated Associa-

TIJS AFTERNOON: The University
Symphony orchestra under 'the direc-
tion of Samuel Pierson Lockwood in
the second Faculty Concert at 4:15
o'cloek in Hill auditorium.
Comedy Club's latest production
"Dulcy" was packed up after the per-
formance last night, and sent to the
ungrateful oblivion of Cain's store-
house-in this case the fly loft of the
Mimes theater, which is the happy
hunting ground of all good scenery
after the 'closing of any campus show.
The untimely demise of "Dulcy" is,
however, to be regretted. Not be-
.cause it is a good draia-for it reads
like a serial in the Saturday Evening
Post. Nor because it was a particu-
larly happy choice-it is more the
type of play that the Senior class in
High School does. But rather because
of Phyllis Loughton's admirable Dul-
cinea Smith. Post-prandial eulogies
are for the most part ojetionable
but her performance calls forth some
mention. She was in character from
her first entrance to the hearty and
resonant kiss which brought down
the final curtain. Moreover, she ac-
complished something' which was ex-
traordinarily difficult: she invested
Dulcy with some sympathy, and at the
same time retained all the comedy
and humor that isto be found in Dul-
cy's endless platitudes and cheery
blundering. And in no small measure
was there a satire of America's per-
fect hostess-who is Dulcy's proto-
type. In short therd were a whole
complex of reasons that place the role
in the mildewed album of portraits for
a local theatrical hall of fame.
And now that the show has closed,
we can let you all in on a professional
secret. It wasn't Charles Livingstone
who played the piano in the second
act at all, because he can't play the
piano; it was Lorinda McAndrews,
who played Helen Hayle last week in
Mimes "On Approval."
In an article in yesterday morning's
column which was devoted to editorial
notice of the deaths of Florence Mills
and Isadora Duncan, it was stated that
Miss Duncan died three or four years
ago. This"was due to a typographical
error, and should have read "three
or four weeks ago."

One of the latest books, which only
escapes being a best seller because of
the annoying fact that federal agents
raided the printing establishment and
destroyed the plates, is Nan Britton's
"The President's Daughter" in which
the love story of the late President
Harding is laid bare. The book opens
with facsimilies of various bills which
his mistress required him to pay, and
the story subsequently deals with the
life of the baby girl who blessed the
union. H. L. Mencken remarks that
Miss Britton "achieves a portrait so
grotesque that it seems fabulous, and
yet so palpably true that it convinces
instantly." Although we have not as
yet been able to read this book, the
facts of the case seem pretty well sub-

stantiated and Nan Britton can go
down in literary history as perhaps
the most prosaic woman who ever
became entangled with an unimagin-
ative celebrity.
Miss Britton's book, however, does
not deny the fact thatkMr. Harding
had 'rno children to speak of.'
The book is published by The Eliza-
beth Ann Guild of New York, which
is one of the many new publishing
houses which have sprung up to meet
the demand for books by unrecognized
geniuses and literary minded porno-
graphers. -R. L. A.

the fact that the personnel has largely

eventually rounds into something like
music. At any rate, it is the one and
only of its kind in the University, and
usually has a rather wide and quite
