Nighlt. Itditor--K. C. PATPRICK
With thle passing of Senator Wood-
br'idge N. Ferris, Alichigani politics
has lost one of t he most picturesquei
figurles from its ranlks, a veteran of
battlf es wich have echoedI through l

casion his sincerity and initegrity re-

of 13,000 vote's over his nearest Re-

the principles of Dlemocracy. Senator

Listening to a performance of "Tie
*Bakker," which will be on view at
the Whitney this week, is cometimes
confusing without a glossary, and we
1advise patrons to become familiar
with the following lingo of this epic
of a tank-town side show:
A saw is a ten dollar bill.
A punk is a common laborer.
A hop-head is a dope fiend.
The racket is the whole carnival.
A mitt-camp is a fortune-teller's
'booth.
t Sloughing the joint means a police
raid.
The island refers to Coney Island.
A nipple is a young boy.,
LOCAL SONG AND DANCE
'tAs usual there has been a great
'deal of griping this week concerning
the Junior Girls' Play; and there was
a great deal more about the opera.
Something is always wrong about
college musical shows. And gener-
ally the trouble is that everyone ex-
pects too much. Both shows werel
i very good in general-and pretty aw-E
fl in spots. The opera needed voices
ohm, so badly- and was somewhat
scrambled for most of its week at
the Whitney; the professorial satire
of the Junior Girls' Play was lacking
imn humor and except for Vera John-
ston it needed good specialty dlancers.
But as for comparing the two-what
Mrs. MAtaprop said for comparisons
in general is still very true. What is
really needed is a combination of the
two shows. Boys splitting in bloomers
haven't much appeal-sex or other-
wise, and girls sauntering in pants
are nmostly pathetic. Bud Lewis and
Teddie Maley are exceptons.
Mimes was planning a musical
comedy (for local production only ),
with a mixed cast; and this is what
this campus needs worse than a nickel
package of Lucky Strikes. It is very
unlikely that this will ver come off.
Certain moral prejudices on the pamrt
(f tie deans is responsible.
311 N ISTERIAL I ITERATUILE
"Meat," by Wilbur Daniel Steele;
New Yor~k: Harpter's; 1928; $250
By this book Wilbur Daniel Steele
is entitled to a membership in that
cam'avan of authors turned preachers
'of whom Upton Sinclair is the leader.
And since, preaching, not literature,
is their primary motive, natumally,
their style is neglected. Thi4 is the
case with Author Steele. Indeed, le
is so intent on pointing out a moral
that the result of his labors is a
book which from the standpoint of
literature cannot claim to be a work
of aint.
Tit the process of describing the life
of the Indias-the narriage of Sam
and Anne India, the youth of Flagg
ai' Pern India, the change brought
about by the birth of Rlex, and the
death of Rex-the author expounds
his Main thesis; 'though the strong
give tip that which is a temptation to
the weak, nevertheless they (the
weak) will fall. In this case the
'meat which makes the brother to sin'
is liquor, though the author may have
intended his moral to apply to other
prohibitions. And it is for, this rea-
son, I imagine, that those adversely
affected by the auto-ban will find it
initeresting to read.
-By Oscar R. Fss
"TU'E DEVIL'S DISCIPLE"
Beginning Monday of this week,
1Mimes undertakes to present G. B. I
Shaw's toe-nail sketch of the minis-
terial posterior anatomy, "The :Devil's

Disciple." For all that this Irish-
man has proven himself a bad boy
when let loose among the nicely or-
dered conventions of his fellow men,
the. play is quite a sympathetic bit
of scolding in which the melodrama is
more important than the lmon
l a p o-in g .
The Mimes production is elaborate
with an all star cast-especial lyin
the mob scenes where all the "activi-
ties" stars of the campus appear at
one time or another.
