in the Mimes theater. In addition, a

difficult roles which must be carried.
These factors, combining as they do
with the benefits which the production

deserving recognition.

of the nominations of their respective

primary unopposed, polled a 'vote

supporters- nearly 200,000 greater
than the total vote of the Democratic

primary against his two most formid-
able opponents, Senators Reed and
Walsh, won likewise a sweeping vic-
tory which definitely indicates the
trend of his party.

Dear Sir:
"With the expected naivete" Phi Eta
Sigma, the freshman honorary society,
resents the attitude recently express-
ed in your editorial columns on the
honor system campaign which we are
about to undertake. In your editorial
you admit that the successful intro-
duction of the system requires "strong
supporting student opinion" and then
in your customary paternalistic atti-
tude you hasten to ridicule us. Isn't
this a bit paradoxical? How can you
expect us to get the support which
we are working for when we receive
this sort of encouragement from a
campus paper that should be whole-
heartedly for us? You admit the
system is good, but because we hap-
pen to be "yearlings," and an honor
society, you take our efforts with a
grain of salt.
Let us assure you that our under-
taking is much more than "freshman
idealism." We are making a serious
and thorough investigation of the
honor system with the cooperation of
well informed authorities on the mat-
ter, and we hope in the near future to
have something concrete to offer. Un-
til then it is too much to hope for
"Daily" support, but we do earnestly
ask for a watchful waiting policy
instead of your usual negative en-
Yours sincerely,

A review, by Phyllis Loughton and
Vincent Wall
Something which seemed about as
practical as a dramatization of the
"Three Dialogues of Hylas and Phil-
onous" was presented last night in
the new Guild theater of the Harris
Players. This latest addition to the
local Thespians has chosen Pirandel-
Jo's "Right You Are" for a last pro-
duction of the season, and have given
it an interesting but somewhat tedious
Pirandello's thesis in this play
chafes a bit within the restrictions
of the spoken drama and the picture
stage. It is essentially, as the pro-
gram states, a parable in three acts.
The material is philosophical to a
perplexing degree, but nevertheless
is both adult and highly worth-while
entertainment. A very interesting
case in point arises, when the sanity
of several members of an Italian
community is in doubt. A woman is
said by her son-in-law to be under' the
delusion that he daughter is his wife,
but that she has in reality been dead
for some years, and that he is living
with a second wife. The woman re-
futes his statement and accuses him
of thinking her daughter dead. Since
all connections and relatives of both
parties have been wiped out by a con-
venient earthquake, Pirandello arriv-
es at no astounding conclusions con-
cerning the Truth, but leaves the
audience carefully poised between the
horns of his dilemna.
The handling of the characters is
in some cases well done. Earl Fleisch-
man, as Agazzi, the main inquisitor
in the investigation of the lunacy, does
his utmost to set the tempo as it
should be played, and besides gives
an excellent ,caricature. He plays
with ease and grace and shows the
rest of the cast up deplorably in the
matter of speaking the English lang-
uage. Elizabeth Pike plays Signora
Frola with sympathy and understand-
ing, though rather young in movement
and voice quality. James Dahl infuses
into Lamberto Laudisi a refreshing
amount of ease, though lacking the
savoir faire that the part demands.
John S. Donal gives us an erratic
Ponza, and the rest of the cast lend
Working with limited stage equip-
ment, Mn. J. Raleigh Nelson has done
an exact and careful production.

A review, by Harold May
In a program beginning with the
Prologue from "I Pagliacci" and end-
ing with Miserere from "Il Trova-
tor%," James Hamilton managed to
include enough of the operatic high
hurdles to properly exhibit all of the
more or less varied abilities of his
pupils. Mr. Hamilton, however, was

hampered in the several duets that
he tried by the lack of a student tenor.
and there were enough duets that
the recital seemed almost to be Mr.
Hamilton's very own.
While none of the performances
were outstanding yet therie were three
of the singers 'who stood out from
the rest of their brethren, these were
Fanny Shiff, Hermann Hildner, and
Carolyn Slepicka. Fanny Shiff, con-
tralto, sang a duet with Mr. Hamil-
ton, "Ai Nostri Monti" from "Il Trova-
tore;" her voice had volume and char-
acter; her attack was precise and
almost spirited. Hermann Hildner, in
addition to singing a duet from "La
Forza del Destino" with James Ham-
ilton, sang "Dio Possente" from
"Faust." This song should have
brought the audience from their seats
for it has a catchy tune and a di-
luted "Two Grenadiers" flavor, but,
in spite of the pleasing quality of
Mr. Hildner's baritone, his lack of en-
thusiasm brought him only the usual
round of applause. Fanny Slepicka,
who with Mr. Hamilton and a double
quartet from the G1jee Club, sang
Leanora in the Miserere scene, was
the only one who, in addition to being
able to use her voice could sing with
enough fervor to make the song seem
in any degree fresh and new.
There is no doubt but that the

Editor, Michigan Daily.
Dear Sir:
Russian students of the University
of Michigan have asked me to express
their indebtedness to the Michigan
Daily for giving them a chance to have
a good laugh once in a while.
I am speaking about the article un-
der the name "Pupils of Russia Con-
trol Schools Student Explains" which
appearied on the Women's page last
Tuesday. Stunning bits of informa-
tion about Russian education, con-
firmed with hair raising details, were
indeed just as new and unexpected
to us (who were in Russia during
the years the article refers to) as to
the thousands of American readers.
We are too good natured to consider
this article seriously and we are per-
fectly willing to take the joke even
if it is approaching the limit of in-
ci in.1.xtin ntl n~ vc

WE HOPE THAT the engineers and
lawyers don't get feeling too gay be-
cause the country needs lots of talent
in both fields and we should hate to
lose any of it on the eve of commence-

nominating. Names have been decid-
ed upon to place on the ballot. When!
you go to vote and don't recognize
any of them write in our name and
we will win the election.
* * *
AFTER WE HAVE won the Union
presidency we shall resign., That will
prove to the campus that the presi-
dent of the Union is rather worth-
* * *
THAT REMINDS US that some one
figured up all the positions that are
to be .had around this campus. When!
he got through he found there were
more jobs than students. If you have
no job you must be punk.
