"I'm nothing but a little dog
Who sought an education.
I came to college for it
And caused great consterna-
"I entered classes quite on time
With studied preparation.
When someone said what I ap-
I barked my approbation."
"But still my conduct did receive
No fair appreciation.
And Pardon of the B. & G.
Sought out my habitation."
"'Sir Canine,' said he, very stern
(I gazed in admiration)
'I think that you are guilty of
Some serious depredation.'
"'No no,' said I, 'My conduct, sir,
Will bear investigation.'
(And being very upright I
Made no prevarication)
"'At times,' said I, 'I greet my
With heartfelt salutations.'
But I could see my honest plea
Caused only perturbation."
"'To languish in the pound,' said
'Will be your relegation.'
And thus he ended rude my quest
For mental elevation."
quarters we learn that the candidate
is not in favor of the soap campaign.
He thinks that it is too slippery a
proposition. "I don't like soap any-
way," the campus hero said.

SINCE THIS IS so we shall have
to find a new appeal for Bolt so that
he can carry the country. An addi-
tional plank in his platform for hot
running water in fraternity houses
has won the candidate untold support
in American colleges.

WE LEARN FROM The Daily that
the chairman of the committee which
handles such things for the Gridiron
banquet has announced that invita-
tions for the banquet which will be
given April 4, will be placed in the
mails on April 16 and 17.
IF THAT IS the case is isn't likely
that there will be many present to see
the event. Perhaps they will allow
anyone to go who pays and then if
you don't get an invitation and have
attended you will get your money

AS MOST OF the students know all
the B.M.O.C. and others who have
fraternity brothers in the organization
are invited to this Grid banquet by
Sigma Delta Chi. It really is worth
seeing for there the facutly members

which are slightly off color. We

In line with the policy of making
the students feel at home, the admin-
istration has ordered the B and G
boys to provide a little atmosphere
for the students from the farm.
The R.O.T.C. is being rushed by the
enlistments of those who have heard
the rumor that the ordnance depart-

How About The Prof who Owns Only
One Tie And Had It In The
Plant To Be Cleaned
Mr. Rolls:
Since Goldman's burned down, pro-
fessors are giving bolts right and
left. If a prof's only suit was at Gold-
man's what can he do?
The white coated medical staff,
however, have met the situation very
strategically. The Ann Arbor bar-
bers have voted unanimously -to lend
their coats to University M. D.'s until
relief shipments can be received from
the Chicago White Wings.

thing we didn't have our suit in that,

TONIGHr: The Rockford Players
present Henrik Ibsen's "Hedda Gab-
ler" in the Whitney theater at 8:30
Elsie Herndon Kearns' arrival in
Ann Arbor to play the title role in
Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler," which will
open tonight at the Whitney, has been
the occasion for a good deal of excite-
ment among those who have known
her and who appreciate her ability to
give dramatic portrayals with a great
and delicate artistry. Here is an
opinion from one whose taste is keen
and whose ;judgment can be relied
"I cannot resist the impulse to con-
gratulate the happy inspiration of
bringing Miss Elsie Kearns to Ann
Arbor. Her subtle and varied art has
always been a delight to me and to
all the patrons of drama in this com-
munity. It will be a great pleasure
to see her mature, thoughtful, and
fresh interpretations again."
Albert Lockwood.

Out of the shambling hulk of loose
acts and odds and ends of scenes the
Junior Girls' Play is rising like the
proverbial Phoenix. ;Dance routines
which were once just aimless and
silly leg exercises, acts that were bits
of idiotic dialogue clouding the air,
musical scores that were nothing less
than one finger'ed jigs on an ivory
floor, all are ,sliding together into
their designated grooves as if sorie
divine puzzle-maker were pushing at
them, and the dazzling story' of ad-
venture and daring "For the Love o'
Pete" is rising in full dramatic ma-
Pete is big, and blonde, and good-
looking in a silent way, and master-
ful, and insouciant, and wholly lov-
able as the focal point for the mys-
terious plots and female wiles which
surround him and try to crush him-
*just like the silly waves around the
Rock of ibraltar. But in Merle
Raine's story there is more than deeds
of derring-do; there is music. Edna
' Bower wrote' the score that runs
through the tale like a golden thread;
the lyric accompaniment is the work
of several artists.
Conservative estimate makes this
year's play the best in the last four
years. There's no point in being ex-
1 travagant about it then, is there?
R. L. A.
The Gilbert and Sullivan operettas
are tenanting the Cass in Detroit this
week-if that fact have any signifi-
cance for a public which knows Sulli-
I van chiefly as a rubber heel and Gil-
bert as Miss Greta Garbo's adulterous
accomplice in cinematic sin. To the
knowing, then, this reporter must
confess that he is, so staunch a Savo-
yard that reviewing any product of
the Castor and Pollux of satire is for
him a hazardous procedure, conducive
to the creased brows and indigestions
of worriment. Of the performance of

"The Mikado" last week, therefore, this
deponent had best not speak, lest he
reveal the trembling lip of rapture or
the moist eye of joy, and make his
readers, if any, suspect him of having
just bought an interest in the show.
He must hence content himself with
the remark that the arrival of the Savo-
yard troupe, restoring as it does the
roses to the pallid cheeks of' Detroit
in its mid-March doldrums, should be
greeted with the waving of banners
and sarabands in the streets. "The
Mikado" easily the veteran of the
series; a lively valetudinarian, it has
undergone many -icjssitudes, from
being afflicted by the Messrs. Shu-
bert with the gutta-percha-limbed
Lupino Lane and cherry-trees from
the ateliers of Watson Barratt,
down to production as the annual
high school play in the gymnasium;
and the latter is undeniably the lesser
But never has it been better done,
nor for that matter so well, as by
Winthrop Ames' present company. In
Mr. Ames' subtly tasteful production,
"The Mikado" is, as it should be, a
sly and demure buffonery, poking an
always well manicured finger of scorn
at the comic cosmos, and tickling
rather than smiting the assorted ribs
of the customers.
"The Mikado" and its fellows,
"Iolanthe" and "The Pirates of Pen-
