has indicated, and probably lies in the
very roots of a social organization
which awards a position of respect
and prominence to the "white collarI
man" while it refuses to award a
similar presatigento the man who
works with his hands.
We have mass education in the
West, to be sure, and we no doubt edu-
cate a number of men and women
who are not highly fit for the train-
ing they receive. It remains to be
proved, howevr,, that any product of
our mass educational system is the
worse off for having received his col-

THE REPLY TO GILBERT
As might be expected, the German
press and German official opinion has
treated somewhat lightly the recent
communication of Seymour Parker
Gilbert in which he charges "over-
borrowing and overspending" to the
the German Reich. To be sure, Mr.
Gilbert (Agent General for Repara-
tions,) based his statement on sound
facts, but in the face of prompt and
regular payments of foreign obliga-!
tions on the part of Germany; he can
hardly expect to be sustained in his
Perhaps Germany has been some-
what imprudent in its expenditures,
and to that length Gilbert is justified,
but as long as she meets her foreign
obligations with the clock-like pre-
cision of the present, there can cer-
tainly be no deep-seated error in her
BOULDER CANYON DAM
Following the recent conference of
Representative Charles Winter of
Wyoming with President Coolidge on
the question of the Boulder Canyon
dam, and with the impending seven-
state conference to be held in Denver
on the same subject, hopes for the
consummation of the great Boulder
Canyon power and irrigation project
seem brighter than they have since
the last session of Congress filibuster-
ed to its close.
Just why the government should
hesitate to build such a dam, which
cengineers admit would prevent floods
in the Imperial Valley, irrigate thou-
sands 'of acres, and pay for itself with
power in a few years, is difficult to
see, and if the conference at Denver
brings the states into accord, there
seems to be no legitimate reason why
the Boulder Canyon dam should not
become a reality with the passing of

Back in his cozy office at the Whit
Ilouse, President Coolidge sat in con-
ference. Also telling stories were the
Secretary of War and Secretary o
the Navy. Just as the Secretary o
War was telling one he heard at las
night's performance, in rushed a mes
senger boy. "Where's the president?
Mr. Coolidge talked as much as
usual and reached for the yellow
sheet. "Army 18, Notre Dame O," it
read. He passed it over his feet to
the other two. They read and smiled
happily. "Bet Billy Mitchell is sure
sore about that," remarked the Secre
tary of War.

motion they would next hand the army

A near riot was caused in the center
of State street yesterday afternoon
when a student casually perusing his
new Students' Directory found that i

of names beginning with M andl N.

"We are at a loss to explain this,'
the editor declared in a personal in

Since the arrival of Professor Jack
students in the engineering colleg
have been asking how come the li
students have started calling the profs

Rumors are going abot that th
Navy goat was not the Navy goat, i
you see what we mean. .We agree: the
Navy goat was never that white!
The goat was misunderstood in one
case though, and for that, we feel ex
tremely sorry for him. A lady on our
right couldn't see down the field very
well and remarked to her escort or
husband (we don't know which as we
didn't ask) "Oh, isn't it too bad tha
they have to bring that poor sheep ou
here in front of all this crowd?" Later
it came closer and she found that

Somehow, we just couldn't enjoy
that game. There were lots of scor.

lots of coeds and pretty girls around
but the whole thing was a pall.

You see, the boy friend and us upse
the dope at the Ohio game and had
seats on the 45-yard line. All during
the game, we tried to see through
various and sundry wives of the but
ter-and-egg men and former alumni
who put their cash in bonds to save
the old Alma Mater from bankruptcy.
It was impossible, however. First the
lady in front would bob up as Louie
was on his way toward demoralizing
the Ohio team, and say "Oh, there's
Gertie up there! Yoo, hoo, Gertie!"
Then another would bob up and down
and do her bit toward establishing old
ties by screaming above a locomotive

Well, all through yesterday's gamie
we kept thinking of the many thou-
sand similar instances happening
among the good seats in the 'luto-
crats' section and it made us sick.
Poor students, sitting in the wilds of
Hill street and the Mason-Dixon line,
were sacrificing their chance of see-
ing the game to save the old school
and to allow females to compare
bridge hands and canning recipes!
Oh art; oh martyrs; oh --!

We think a chappie in Life made a
fine suggestion and hereby pass it on.
He remarked that considering the fact
that the Princeton and Harvard
alumni had played a game to repatch
their differences, wouldn't it be a fine
thing if the German and Belgian
armies would stage a sham battle?

"T61H1E IILAYS TlE THlING"
f A review, by Vincent Wall.
t "The Play's the Thing" which was
- current at the Garrick all this last
week is a sedulous romp of comedy-
beautifully played by Holbrook Blinn
and Martha Lorber, and staged to the
best advantage. It can easily be re-
t membered as the Ferenc Molnar piece
o which was so heartily received in New
York last year, and which is now on
the road, destined for Chicago.
It is a perfect Blinn part-not quite
so spectacular as his Napoleon or
even Pancho Lopez, but still well suit-
ed to his talent. He dominates the
show from curtain to curtain, and
k does it well. Martha Lorber, late
, danseuse of the "Follies" and now
graduated to a speaking part, hasn't
a sympathetic role, but her beauty and
poise practically save -the third act.
In the play itself there are an amus-
ing number of toothsome lines and
suavely indelicate situations, but they
' ( never become objectionable. The most
interesting points for the critic, how-
u ever, lie in the treatment. Molnar
has permitted himself to indulge in
some good-natured kidding of the
drama, and has created one of the
most unique bits of exposition that I
r have ever seen. In fact, the whole
, profession is more or less satirized,
s and it is probably on this score as
t well as Mr. Blinn's admirable per-
formance that the show has been ac-
corded as a dramatic success.

"TAKE THE Ait"
"Take the Air," the new Gene Buck
musical comedy which will remain
s for one more week at the Cass, has
- been greatly improved during its run,
and is now about ready to brave
Broadway and the critical calico cats.
However, Mr. Buck has just about
e paid for his show in the four success-
1 ful weeks in Detroit, and hasn't a
s great deal to worry about. There have
been several changes in the book, and
several new numbers have been

Buck show will come to the Cass week
after next when Leon Errol appears

THE MOB (La Horda) by Vincente
Blasco Ibanez; E. P. Dutton and Co.;
New York City; $2.50.
A review, by Nelson J. Smith, Jr.
' Just as Francois Villon is the com-
, mentator of the life of the 15th century
in France; just as Pepys occupies the
same position for the England of the
t 17th century, and Gatsworthy for the
d 119th centry, so will Ibanez go down
into the letters of the world as the
chronicler of Spanish life of the 20th'
century. His books are not only love
stories, tragedies, comedies; they are
often succint sociological tracts which
lay bare the life of the Spaniards as
under the shining scalpel of the phy-
sician of all races.
"The Mob" is the story of the at-
tempt of a mere hack writer to rise
above the lot which fortune has cast
n for him upon the green baize of her
d gaming table. And with him goes a
imistress with whom, he says, "he lived
in greater felicity and decency than
half the married men of Madrid ac-
complished with their wives." From
fortune to poverty, with passion and
love intertwined, and finally to the
death of the mistress, the story
sweeps, taking its measure of one's
sympathy and understanding by its
very realism. And the hero is left
with a baby who is destined, as the
story ends, to send him out to face
1 the world as a new man, a man of
iron who will take from the world
that which he desires. A melodrama-
tic ending, indeed, which does little
justice to an otherwise powerful and
interesting book of life and lives.
