"Religion in terms of modern
thought, in terms of 'science and psych-
ology-that is what I give to my con-
gregations in Guildhouse," said Maude
Royden to a Detroit correspondent
yesterday. She continued to remark
that she believes that there are great
moral laws just as there are great
laws of science, and that man must
break himself on these laws, not that
the laws can be broken for man.
These few words contained the epi-
tome of her stand on religion, and ex-
plain the great hold that she has won
for herself in the evangelistic field.
Miss Royden is at present in De-
troit, where she delivered a lecture
last night on the subject, 'England
and America-Can They Ever be
Friends ?'" She will continue fromj
Detroit to Ann Arbor, where she will
deliver the address at the Student
Iconvocation to be held Sunday morn-
ing in Hill auditorium.
As the leader of Guildhouse. London,

I Rockford Players Begin New Progra'
Tonight With Mrs. Mansfield
In Barrie Comedy
Opening the fourth week of their
stock engagement at the Whitney
theater, the Rockford Players will in-
troduce a novel bill beginning with
tonight's pctrformance and runninOj
through next Friday night. The bill
will be double and will include a
revival of Shaw's "Great Catherine,"
with Amy Loomis and Robert Hennd-
erson, and Sir James M. Barrie's one-
act war comedy, "The Old Lady
iShows Her Medals," starrijig Mrs.
Richard Mansfield.
Amy Loomis, who was director of
the Junior Girls' play "Castles In
Spain," three years ago, played the
title role in the Shaw farce with
Comedy Club, when the first perfor-
mances were given in Ann Arbor.
During succeeding perfornances the
vehicle established a reco'rd for the
number of performances enjoyed by.
any campus drama, and was revived
several times at the Mimes theater.
Henderson also played his role of the'
drunken Prince Patiombin at that
time. Miss Loomis appeared Jere

league, but is no longer a regular
I member of the company. S'he has but
recently been dismissed from the
hospital, and due to ill health will
be unable to play successive per-
formances for the entire week of the
present engagement.
Because o,f this, two performances
of "The Cradle Snatchers," and one
of Frederick Lonsdale's sm'art farces,
"Aren't We All," will be interspersed
1 with the regular bill. The Lonsdale
play will be given at the Wednesday
I matinee only, while "The Cradle
Snatchers" will be given on Monday
I night and at the Saturday afternoon
matinece. Cham'les Warburton will
support Miss Loomis and Henderson
in the Shaw play, and other members
of the com'pany will be featured.
Henderson directed both productions.
"Great Catherine" is being costum-
ed with special gowns furnished by
I the Brooks Costume company of New
York, and are said to be the most
colorful ever used in the production
of this play. Miss Loomis' fourth act
costume, in particular, is of red vel-
vet and ermine and was originally
1 worn by Doris Keane in "The Czar-
' ina."
This afternoon the company is pe-

Maize And Blue Arrive At Another
Parting Of Ways; Game To Be
Decisive Test
By Herbert E. Vedder
Championship aspirations will meet
their severest test tonight when Mich-
igan encounters undefeated Purdue on
the field house court in a game which
threatens to be one of the most mo-
mentous of the 1928 Big Ten basket-
ball race. Defeat for Michigan will
mean practical elimination from
titular consideration in view of the
fact that the Wolverines lost their
first two Conference tests.
Nearly four weeks ago Michigan
played host to a fine Indiana quintet
in their first critical game. The
Maize and Blue had not won a game
and had lost two; Indiana was unde-
feated. The Wolverines were at the
first fork in the long road that repre-
sents a Big Ten basketball season
and they chose to take the trail lead-
ling to higher rankings. Today those
same Wolverines are rated as con-
tenders for the championship of the
Big Ten for a third successive year,
but a defeat tonight would bring their
total of losses to three and give Pur-
due a perfect record with four wins,
thus effectually crushing any hope en-
t'ertained by Coach Veenker's team,
and setting the Boilermakers well in
front of the pack, which now includes
Wisconsin, Northwestern and Illnois
as well as Michigan. Truly tonight's
game is another parting of the ways.
May Complicate Race
By winning tonight Michigan per-
haps can prove herself the strongest
team in the Conference at present,
although this is not taking into con-
sideration the quintet which opened
the season so disastrously. By win-
ning tonight she will throw the race
into a "free-for-all"; if Wisconsin
wins in this event she can leap into
the lead, and five teams must be con-
sidered in the race.
Purdue has the better record and
probably should be conceded the edge
over Michigan, but this is hardly to
be conjured over. Michigan will be
playing on her home court before her
home crowd, and with top-notch op-
position, should play a high grade of
ball. If she shows one of those
streaks of indifference, it will prob-
ably be a different story.
Two Veterans Playing
Purdue was considered fortunate in
having four regulars return this year
but such has been the calibre of ma-
terial at Coach Lambert's disposal
that only two of these are slated to
start tonight; the others have been
displaced by new blood.
"Stretch" Murphy, a lad of some 6
feet 7 inches, has displaced Cummins,
high point man in the Conference at
center and is a real scoring power al-
though a bit weak on defense. Cum-
niuns, on the other hand, satisfies him-
self with occasional substitutions at
forward or center.
Captain Wheeler has been rather a
regular at forward again but the other
forward of 1927, Wilson, has declined
to a substitute place with Harmeson
doing regular duty. Kemmer has kept
his place at guard but Schnater, a
wonderfully fast dribbler has shoved
"Cotton" Wilco to the bench. Purdue

has a fast versatile team competent
of the best of basketball.
For that matter, Michigan has a
team that has risen to the heights on
occasion, displaying both a fine of-
fense and close guarding at different

plenty of trouble. Harrigan who has
been clearly off form practically all
year, has been showing much better
during the past week, according to
Coach Veenker, and may be expected
to do better.
Chapman will undertake the rather
difficult task of jumping against
Murphy while McCoy will retain his
guard post. At the other guard, it is
a toss-up between Raber and Orwig.
Raber will probably start but Orwig
can be counted on to play a great part
of the time. Orwig is a great ball
