greatly the country at large. What-
ever meaning may attach to the term
"Great Forest," the fire is gone. The
Klan is becoming a sort of new-born
Tammany with no traditions, and once
out in broad daylight it will find
things very different from before.
Attempts on the part of Col. Robert
SStewart,chairman of the Standard
Oil company of Indiana, to evade the
arrest put upon him by the Senate
when he refused to answer questions
in the Teapot Dome inquiry have ut-
terly failed so far, and his reasons for
not answering have been branded as
frivolous by the presiding justice. The
whole affair has been a farce as far
as the oil king was concerned, and
his replies have shown more clearly
than anything else that all is not
"sweetness and light" in the matter.
The developments of the last two
-weeks in which Stewart has been in-
volved has displayed a startling in-
consistency in the policy of the oil
company. In refreshing contrast to
the evasions and wire pullings that
had gone before, John D. Rockefeller,
Jr., displayed a commendable public
spirit when he requested Stewart to
return to Washington from the H3a-
vana conference, and asked him to
do anything in his power to aid the
Senate committee. But any brief
hopes for speedier clearing-up of this
national scandal soon disappeared,
and there is now cast up on the Wash-
ington screen the picture of an inter-
national business figure, engaged in
by-play with governmental investiga-
tors while the lesser sublic looks on
with mingled emotions.
Taking first steps toward what may
prove to be a satisfactory solution of
the wage dispute between miners and
bituminous operators in the eastern
coalhmining fields, the sub-committee
of the Senate interstate commerce
committee opened their inspection of
conditions in mining camps this week.
Evidence that the committe means
business was shown when the request
of the presidents of two of the largest
operating concerns in the district that
officials of the United Mine Wrkers
be prohibited from entering their
property, was flatly refused on the
grounds that full inquiry could not be
undertaken by the committee without
some representative of the Union
present. Inasmuch as the operators
will be given the opportunity to pre-
sent their side of the case before
the committee the latter part of this
week, there was no justification for
the refusal on the part of the investi-
gating committee. With detailed in-
spection now underway, and indica-
tion given that the committee means
business, a compromise settlement
may reasonably be expected.

ALONG ABOUT THE last day of
the month, February 28, to be exact,
all students are asked to vote on a
proposed amendment at the Union.
This will be excellent practice for
those who are going to vote in the
campus elections in the spring.
IF ANY OF THE students wish to
find out just how politics work a
splendid opportunity is given at these
campus elections. Some of our boys
on the campus may not be very ex-
perienced, but they learn fast and are
really better politicians than most
of the Bill Thompsons, etc.
* * *
voting to combine two boards into
one. That means the elimination of
one, but it must be a good thing for
the elimination of anything at the
Union would be a good thing.
* * *
the Union (don't ask him how it hap-
pened) has promised that if there is
a quorum present and the vote is
cast he will serve refreshments to all
attending but not today.
* * *
THE ONLY TIME IN the history
of the Union that they ever got
enough students out to vote was when
they promised to give $10 to every
student. They did, but someone rais-
ed the tuition so it all came out even.
IT HAS BEEN intimated that Ben
Bolt, Rolls candidate for president
will be present at the meeting to talk
to those who wish to stay for the re-
freshments. It has been decided to
hold the refreshments until after Ben
has talked for the management hopes
that there will only be a few left.
* * *
The Rolls expedition to the Eco-
nomics building has been found. All
members of the party are reported
safe. It seems that they strayed into
the aboretum just before sun set and
fell asleep.
WHEN THEY WOKE they saw that
the sun had set and forgot that the
gates have not yet been erected.
Thinking that the gates were closed
they thought there was no use in
trying to get out.!
* * *
OLAF D. KATZ, leader of the ex-
pedition expressed his thanks at be-
ing found. Whei he heard that it
was feared the group had been lost
in the library, he expressed great ex-
citement. "If that had been the
case," he said, "we would never have
been found."

Planned this year for March 6, In-
ternational Night, annual presenta-
tion of the Cosmopolitan club, prom-
Ises to be even as elaborate as it has
been in the past. A combination of
professional and amateur acts, and of
local and outside talent, the presen-
tation will doubtless achieve the novel
character and cosmopolitan atmo-
sphere that has been so distinctive
in the productions presented in recent
years, a character and atmosphere
which are extremely welcome on the
University campus.
Though the project has never lack-
ed the support of the student body
in the past, commendation is a hollow
phrase and praise a mean tribute
without the support in a small finan-
cial way which the project deserves.
The foreign students on the campus,
together with a number of native
aides, have expended unstintedly of
their time and efforts in producing
these In-ternational Night programs-.
with notable results. It is to be hoped
that the student body as a whole will
recognize this fact when an opportu-
nity is afforded to cooperate in a
small way by attending the affair.

TONIGHT: The Rockford Players
present "Clarence" in the Whitney
theater at 8:15 o'clock.
TONIGHT: The Mimnes present "The
Ilome Towners" In their theater at
8:30 o'clock.
Mrs. Fiske, who will appear in
Shakespeare's "Merry Wives of Wind-
sor" in its first Michigan appearance
at the Whitney theater, is assigned
the part of Mistress Page to do with
as she will, and her will is to do it
with as hearty, as cunning, as Ra-
belaisian a gesture as she can com-
mand. It is altogether in keeping
with her role as Mistress Page that
Mrs. Fiske should never have read,
at least so she says, any Shakespeare
until about a year ago, and it is still
more in keeping that, after she had read
it she should have decided that she
wanted to appear in it. Mistress Page
undoubtedly never read anything in
her life, and if she had she would
have used it to play tricks on her
Appearing with Mrs. Fiske is Hen-
rietta Crosman, who takes the part
is Mistress Ford. Henrietta Crosman
s an actress with a Shakespearian
reputation, and between her and Mrs.
Fiske the scene is kept buzzing with
ribald and ingenious tauntings of all
the males in the play.

After suffering from the dewy drip
of "Clarence" and the musical com-
edy farce of "The Home Towners" it
is a relief to register the coming pro-
duction of Sutton Vane's comedy mys-
tery-melodrama, "Outward Bound,"
which for all its nonsense is a sophis-
ticated drama, and in spite of its dead
characters--for they are really dead
although. the final scenes explaining
it all will be omitted as quite unneces-
sary--it is really a lively comedy of
irony. Produced in London by John
Drinkwater, it was an over-night hit
and whenetransplantedhto New York
with Alfred Lunt in the Tom Prior
role it scored a similar success. Of
local importance is the fact that this
play is Mrs. Mansfield's last before
Ann Arbor audiences and Mr. War-
burton's first as a director n pro-
ducers. -R LA.

Eddie Dowling said three years ago
that within that time he was going to
be back in Detroit with another mu-
sical comedy hit-he was then in
"Sally, Irene and Mary"-and next
week he's going to keep his promise
with "Honeymoon Lane" which enters
the New Detroit for a.week beginning
Sunday night. After a New York
Beason, it went to Philadelphia and
broke some records, and is now en
route to Chicago.
Mr. Dowling wrote the books, lyrics
and plays the lead in "Honeymoon
Lane" and officiated in a similar ca-
pacity for his wife-Miss Ray Dooley,
who is now on the road with "The
Sidewalks of New York." Mr. Dowling
is planning to return to New York
with "Honeymoon Lane" after he
takes it to the coast-something

which was lone with "Sally, Irene
end Mnrv." Included in the cast with
Mr. Dowling .will be Gordon Dooley,
Martha Morton, Florence O'Deni-
shawn and sundry others from the
big time merry-merry.
Other Detroit attractions for next
week include the Helen Ford and
Lulu McConnell combination in
"Peggy-Ann" at the Shubert Detroit
and a return engagement of "My
Maryland" at the Shubert Lafayette.
The former played a year at the
Vanderbilt in New York, and is now
out in the provinces with most of the
original cast. It is the musical ver-
sion of "Tillie's Nightmare." rirhe

bara Frietchie" played in Detroit

Back from his Southern flights, Co]
Charles A. Lindbergh landed in De-
troit to be immediately beseiged by
reporters and aeronautical experts as
to his present and future plans. He
tsked-to be left alone. Although the
less considerate portion of the public
will assert that lie is but paying the
penalty of being famous, it would noi
be so very far wrong, in view of whal
he has done for aviation to abide by
one of his few requests. The public
should be willing to forget the noted
aviator while he enjoys the vacation
which has been his due for many
many months.
Apparently some papers have yet
to learn to discriminate between the
uncommon and the commonplace.

Daily that acting President of the
University Henry Simmons Frieze
first introduced the policy of having
co-eds on the campus. We don't know
if the man should be cursed or prais-

OF COURSE THE man who first
introduced co-eds did not think of the
trouble their descendants would cause
