national committee for the choice of
the motor city as headquarters. Moneyr
is no object-for the funds have been'
raised-and they have the advantage'
of representing the metropolis of a
state that has voted loyally in the
Republican columns for years.
Kansas City and San Francisco are
the leading competitors with Detroit
for the honor of the convention, and
while it is perhaps unjust to disparage,
such glowing enthusiasm as Detroit
has shown, it seems mightily at this'
stage as though Kansas City will with-
out a doubt get the call, for several
First and foremost, Chairman But-
ler of the Republican national com-
mittee favors Kansas City, and hisI
reasons are extremely plain. Kansas
City, in the first place, is in the heart
of the Middle West-in the heart of a
section which the Republicans must
look to above all others for success
in tle 1928 campaign. The West is
none too favorable to the Republicans
since the farm relief fiasco of last
spring, and the compliment of giving
them the convention would not be lost
on the voters of the corn belt.
Detroit, on the other hand, repre-
sents the interests of a state which
has not deflected from the Republican
ranks on a presidential election in
years and years, and it represents the
interests of a state whose vote is'
safely in the Republican column with-
out any flattery or any outside stim-
ulant. Detroit, to be brutally frank,
has nothing to offer in a political way.
On the whole it would be pretty safe
to venture a prediction, on the basis
of this situation, that unless the per-
sonal influence of betroit's master
politicians completely sways the na-
tional committee, there is not one
chance in ten of the Republican con-
vention being held in Detroit in the
summer of 1928.

JUST WHAT KIND OF
A SHOW IS THIS -
With heart and lung examinationsj
required for prospective members of1
the choruses, it appears that the
Junior girls are going to present
something a little different in the way
of a play next sprig-
* * *
Advance reports have not sated
ivhether the girls are gIng to imitate
Mines and its Blundering Herd. or
theft in the adaptation of George
Gershwin. The tunes are all of them
excellent and they have a swing that
carries the chorus work when
the. footwork is' terrible. We'll say
for Bud that he knows a good thing
when he sees it. He didn't have to
take some second-rater pounded out
by a ham trumpet player and turn it
into a "Romany Rose." He starts
with the best and makes it fit his
need exactly. The tuneful end in this
show more than justifies the means.
Without Lewis, Dougall and Crane
this show would be flatter than the
football team at Illionis without Gil-
bert. The plot reminds one of Mr.
Canning's character who said, "Story?
,od bless you! I have none to tell,
sir." But there must be a book and
so the authors have combined "Broad-
way", "Chicago", "Burlesque" and a
lot of the other night club thrillers
to make a play. The only one they
missed was "The Cat and the Canary."
Mr. Shuter and the gods of Mimes
have achieved the professional in
everything but the chorus. Costuming,
stars, songs, music-they have all of
these things. But the chorus work
is ragged and the entrances and the
exits are crude. The only thing that
saves them at all is the fact that
Lewis (one can't talk about the show
without mentioning Lewis in each
breath) has given them some neat
touches and some clever flourishes.
The heavy hand of the publicity de-
partment almost ruins the show.
"Buck" Sampson may be a dandy
swimmer, but in this show he is one
fish that is out of water. Giving him
a lead prt, and especially letting him
sing and dance, almost ruins that part
of the show. One could do with a few
less news' stories about the B. M. 0.
C.'s for the sake of an actor. That
break is almost as bad as giving Rob-
ert Graham a solo where no solo be-
longs. He can sing (we've heard him
at convoations), but dragging that
song, Russian Rose," by the heels
in the effort to "plug" it leaves a
hole in the show that is big enough
to drop. the Library into.
When Livingstone walked out with
a sign on his back saying that he was
not Loue Gilbert, we laughed. But
10 minutes later we wished that it
had been Gilbert. We've never seen
Gibert act, but he couldn't be much
more out of place than Livingstone.
If one must have a notable in THAT
place for publicity we suggest that

Don't get us wrong on this show,
The dancing that Lewis and Dougall
do is worth the price and the tunes
are goood. It's at least worth theprice
of a football game, and it pts the
blinkers on the last two Mimes pro-
ductions. If they can (d0 something
with the choruses and make some of
the hams in the cast sit up an take
notice it will even be good enough to
write home about. But it will mean
a lot of night work for Ernie from the
looks of the present outfit, unless he
kicks the choruses out and lets Lewis
and Dougall do all of the dancing.

THE Seven Wonders of the Ancient
World were single' monuments,
glorifying one individual or at most a
small group of people. Masterpieces of
their kind, they yet had no influence on
the life of the race which created them,
and they benefited nobody.
There lies the differencc between the
old and the new civilization. The Seven
Wonders of the Modern World are the
inventions which have been ofthe greatest
benefit to the greatest number of people.
What are they? Although lists would dif-
fer radically, one item would be common
to all. The Otis Elevator would surely be
included as one of the Seven Wonders of
the M odernWorld on all lists whether em-
anating from Greece, Egypt or Turkey;
Lima in Peru,Shanghai in China or Holly-
wood, California. It is an international
convenience, dedicated not to one person
