America should not flatter itself by
trying to term Charlie Lindbergh, "a1
typical American." He lacks in good
measure, characteristic American con-

open-mindedness; frankness, sincerity
and cold determination that is not to
be disregarded. And where other
ambassadors have dreamt of rosy
castles in the air where peace and
good will might hold sway, this good
will Ambassador from America has
visited the castles on earth and done
more toward bringing about such a
spirit than any other one individual
in American history.
It is to be hoped that while Colonel
Lindbergh wings his way through

Dramatic pabulum in Detroit has
been materially augmented with the
advent of two plays and two musical
comedies. A second company of
"Good News" is about the most wel-
come entertainment in its line to be
seen in the city this season. It has a
ggood cast with Dorothy McNulty, late
of "The Great Temptations," Max
Hoffman, Jr., much improved since
his "Gay Faree" days, Dorothy Bur-
gess, Katherine Morris, Jack Haley
and some others. They have a fast
show two wonderful songs-"Good
News" and "The Varsity Drag"-
which Peggy Bernier puts over in the
merry-merry manner, and excellent
comedy. In fact it turned out to be a
theatrical marvel-it lived up to its
reputation. It is almost axiomatic in
the show business that a road com-
pany is pretty certain to turn out to
be a disappointment in certain re-
spects. But "Good News" is selling

The other musical show is "Just
Fancy" at the Shubert Detroit. It af-
fords pleasant entertainment, has no
niasic to speak of, some comedy by
Raymond Hitchcock and Eric Blore,
and Joseph Santley and Ivy Sawyer.
Its book is an adaptation of the
Thomas play "Just Suppose" and con-
tains some of the wistful and pallid
charm of a Barrie piece.
The plays in town-"Chicago" and
"The Spider"-are too well known
to merit much comment. The first is
a satire of the American criminal
courts, and is well written by Mau-
rine Watkins and well played by
Francine Larrimore. The second is a
trick mystery play which was very
successful in New York last season,
but which I found rather dull. Prin-
cipally because mystery plays are one
of my minor enthusiasms.

At the Shubert theater, New York.
A review, by Morris Zwerdling.
Graduated from the hoofer class,
Harry Delmar has taken his place
with George White, George M. Cohan
and the others who have realized am-
bitions as producers. His first revue,
the "Revels," is sure-fire entertain-
ment for those who like their humor
not too subtle and close to burlesque.
Although the book has little about
which one may enthuse, it is inter-
preted by a cast which compares well
with any musical show on Broadway
today. Heading the list is Winnie
Lightner, that stout comedienne who
delights in shouting out risque song
lyrics, and Frank Fay, a straight
comic possessed of one of the best
"blues" voices I have ever heard.
Bert Lahr establishes himself in the
"Revels" as one of the funniest char-
acter comedians in the game. His trick
makeup and eccentric speech, not un-
like Joe Penner of Greenwich Villagei
Follies fame, was responsible for
making dull lines seem convulsively

Meanwhile hundreds of students

We heard of a mighty good adress
during vacation. It seems that a real
prominent University man was lectur-
ing down in Tennessee or South
Carolina or some place about like
that. This man is a biologist, and
very much interested in mice. So he
told those poor people down there
that the mouse might some day be
the salvation of the human race. It
was such a good idea that we are
commemorating it with a little verse.
Blessing on thee, little mouse,
