teacher. Through the years his re-
nown has extended beyond the bounds}
of this school, and has made for him
a position of national prominence. In
1908 he was chosen president of the
American Association of Pathologists
and Bacteriologists, from 1910 to 1913r
he served as president of the Interna-
tional Association of Medical Mu-f
seums, for protracted periods he has
edited professional journals and serv-1
ed on government commissions.
The really pleasant thing about this1
anniversary of 35 years on the Uni-
versity faculty, however, is that Dr.t
Warthin is still an active man. Barelya
past the mark of 60 years, the Univer-
sity can still look forward to many,
seasons of service, at least in an ad-
visory capacity, from the man who
has gained for Michigan such a promi-
nent place in the field of pathology.
It is scracely necessary to mention
that the whole University joins with
the Medical School in its appreciation
of the work of Dr. Alfred S. Warthin.
University officials in charge of the
auto han enforcement have requested
all students, now allowed to operate
cars under the so-called Automobile
permits and wishing to continue that
operation, to reapply for permission
before December 27.
Though probably advantageous to
effective enforcement, the ruling adds1
to the intracacies of University ad-
ministration which have been happily
reduced in other departments. More-
over, the provision of just two days
to obtain application blanks, partic-
ularly when it comes at a time so
busy for the undergraduate is incon-
venient and insufficient for the stu-
dents, as it also may be for the Uni-
versity officials.
Despite the wisdom or convenience
of the measure, the individuals con-
cerned are to be reminded that today
is the last one to obtain application
blanks for the reissuance of the per-
mits, though the blanks may be mail-
ed to deans of students office any-
time before December 27.

Today several thousands of the stu-
dent body will leave town, to spend
the two weeks period of the vacation
in their home towns. Stretching from
coast to coast as she does with the
representation of her student body,
the influence which the University can
extend during this vacation period, is
vast and comprehensive.
The tremendous possibilities which
this wide dissemination of the spirit
of Michigan affords are inspiring in-
deed. Men from our own campus will
reenter groups which they have left
for months, and will have the oppor-
tunity of gaining close contact with
institutions and persons completely
outside the sphere of University life.
They will meet graduates and non-
graduates, persons of all ages and
walks of life, and, most important of
all, they will meet in many cases the
boys and girls of high school age who
will be the University men and women
of The future.
It is in this direction, if in any, that
the real responsibility of the student
body rests over the Christmas recess.
Michigan, to continue her high educa-
tional standards, must have men and
women of high quality, and these men
and women will come here only if they
know of the advantages which the
University can offer them. Michigan's
future lies with these boys and girls
of high school age-her athletic fu-
ture, her educational future, and her
future reputation.
Truly, very few phases of activity
compare in importance to the activity
which brings the Michigan men and
women of the future to"Ann Arbor. If
the student body is interested in the
future scholarship, the future athletic
teams, the future all-round reputation
of its University it will spare no effort
to see that the highest type of athlete,
student, and personality is brought to'
Michigan for its University career.

Scott Warthin, professor of pathology,
made in thae form of a memorial edi-

A review, by Paul J. Kern.
If the general comments on the first
wo performances of "The Romantic
Young Lady" are correct, then the
students of the play production class
have improved, tremendously in their
hree nights of practice. They are not
professionals by a long ways, to be
sure, but the Sierra piece wins beyond
a doubt all honors for being one of
the slowest moving shows ever writ-
ten, and any actors who can stay
awake during three acts of such a play
-to say nothing of acting it-deserve
heartfelt commendation.
It is no mean tribute, then, to the
work of the play production class
when one can actually find moments
of enjoyment in such a performance.
Abounding in long and dull speeches;
replete with scenes where nothing
happened for minutes; and redundant
with the most pointless prattle and
verbose peroration, the Spanish com-
edy exhibited few qualities that will
ever make it a gate attraction, and
fewer still to place it in a class with
'The Cradle Song." The plot of a
simple young girl being taken in by a
great literary personage is too dull
ven to be trite, and the expenditure
f three acts for the unfolding of the
ale is almost inexcusable.
On the whole the cast was good.
Nearly every actor knew his lines last
night-and several of them showed
ctual flashes of fine characterization.
Leaving the experienced Samuel Bon-
ell and Richard Woellhaf out of con-
ideration, Charles Green, Marie Boss,
nd Dorothy Shore contributed what
were probably the ablest bits.
So with a final plea that play pro-
uction pick a presentable piece for
ts next presentation, may the bones
)f "The Romantic Young Lady" rest
n peace!
Last night "The Same to You" was
put through a final rehearsal before
ts departure for its Chicago opening
onight. There were a few changes
nade in the position and length of the
numbers, and the costume plot of the
irst act was materially revised, since
he wardrobe has been somewhat am-
>lified. The second act will be left
ntact-even the critics were indul-
ent with that--and the general pro-
>ortions of the show will be the same.
Whether the alumni will like "The
ame to You" better than Ann Arbor
id remains to be seen. They will be
iven the opportunity of seeing a
nuch better organized show, as the
rchestra has ben put through sundry
ehearsals under a new director, and
his will eliminate some of the rough
pots of last week.

$177.50 and up, round trip
The time to plan your vacation trip to Europe is
now. Demand for Tourist Third Cabin accommoda-
tions is so great each year that reservations should
be made well in advance. Last year many thousands
of students travelled on United States Liners-this
year there will be even more.
These ships are so popular because they are Amer-
ican ships. Standards of living in America are the
highest in the world and they are maintained on
the Leviathan, George Washington, President Roosevelt,
President Harding, Republic, and Amnerica.
Staterooms are clean and airy; social halls, smok-
ing rooms, and libraries are attractive and inviting;
the cuisine is well known for its quality by all expe-
rienced travelers. Decks are wide and sunny. Best
of all, passengers really enjoy themselves because of
the American atmosphere of fun on board.
