Tonight's performance of "Hu-
manity" in Hill audiorium will
mark the sixth annual effort of the
members of Cosmopolitan Club in
presenting an International Night
Setting forth as its purpose the
bringing together of the foreign,
students in such a way as to weld
the mass into an important factor
in University life as well as pro-
moting a better degree of interna-
tional standing, the Cosmopolian
Club obviously occupies an impor-
tant position. The program to be
presented tonight will endeavor to
demonstrate, pictorially the pre-
dominating belief of the members
of the group, that "Above all na-
tions is humanity."
Certainly the purpose of the or-
ganization is commendable in it-
self. With International Night as
the only concrete point of contact
between foreign students and the
rest of the studente body as well as
faculty and townspeople, it remains
that International Night, too, car-
ries a very definite value in vividly
presenting an embodiment of sen-
timents of international peace and
good-will held by the foreign stu-
At last the University is to have
prizes to encourage literary work
'in the University, that is if the!
Regents accept the Avery Hopwood
and Jules Hopwood prize fund.
When the amount is received, it
will fill a long felt want.
The rhetoric department has of-
fered few means of encouraging
intensive literary pursuits within
its department, chiefly because it
has never had means provided. At
present there are two rhetoric
medals given each year to rhetoric
students, one to a freshman and
one to an upper classman. But lit-
tle seems to be made of these op-
portunities by the department; in
fact, in most freshmen classes
their existence is seldom mention-
ed. The Inlander has endeavored
at various times to discover literary
talent with numerous prizes, but
most of them have been farces.
The freshmen essay contest last

Two ballots among the member-
ship of the Frosh Frolic commit-
tee decided, Tuesday night, to set
the date for the annual affair on
March 22. This, if our calendar is
correct, is just two weeks from to-
morrow night. And incidentally,
this was the first meeting of the
committee as a whole.
The freshman class has taken r
quite a job upon its hands in at- t
tempting to promote such a party s
irn less than two weeks and a half.t
In the first place a class party is noa
easy task to stage under present
University regulations whereby
student council and administra-
tive authority and supervision ad- 1
vise against any sudden moves on1
the part of a committee. To en-
gage an orchestra, to; have !the
tickets printed and signed, to plan
and execute the decorations, and
to take care of the endless tasks
which attend the staging of a
class dance would task experienced
hands, let alone those or persons
new to the University.
The Frosh Frolic committee isE
staging the dance on this day, be-
cause the 29th is Good F'iday, va-
cation begins the following week,
and they do not care to put it on
after vaaetion. However, it ap-
pears that they might have done
much better to have scheduled it
for the Friday after vacation.
The members of the committee
in charge will need all the support
that the campus can give, in order
to make this any kind of a suc-
cess. With the Soph Prom dis-
tinctly in the red, and the J-Hop
trying to pay ofQ the Prom's debts,
it is up to the freshmen to succeed
in this instance. With proper co-
operation, they can succeed. With
the campus apathetic, it will mean
another failure in an already none
too financially successful year.
Mexico, it seems, is again in revo-
lution. Vera Cruz and neighboring
provinces have been seized by the
rebel chief Jesus M. Aguirree with
Fausto Topete, governor of the
state of Sonora, referring to the
current administration of Portes
Gil as "the servile government
which has made a joke of our
hopes as free men." With it all,
American interest in the entire
affair is probably aroused as much
from the fact that Colonel Lind-
bergh is now the guest of his
fiancee at the American embassy
in Mexico City as from any other
- Definite causes for this, the lat-
est of Mexican uprisings, are not
so easy to determine and with the
placing of a censorship upon all
news by the Mexican government
reliable information as to the real
seats of grievance is not apt to be
available for some time to come.
The outward facts of- revolution
and dissension, however, are suf-
ficient to allow one to conclude
without a great deal of deep
thought that the Mexican people
and the Mexican government are
even now a long way removed from
a peaceful solution of government-
al difficulties which an outside
world had been accustomed to hope
for and expect.
Claims have been made in some
quarters that the influential posi-
tion still maintained by former
president Calles is in a large ex-

tent responsible for the uprising. A
much better solution, however,
would seem to be that a dissatisfied
military-political leader gaining
some small amount of power hasI
launched another of the national
revolts which have come to be
characteristics of the Mexican
Tha the impulsive nature of the
Latin peoples should lie at the base
of continual warfare and discon-

Probably no one has realized the
resent situation better ,than the
taff of the Inlander who are spon-
oring the short story contest. The
lefinite aim behind the contest is
o obtain those things which are
acking at the present time: a pub-
ic interested in literary writing of
nterest and merit, and writers, de-
irous of a means for improving
heir ability, getting constructive
riticism, and aiding in a hoped
or renaissance in creative writing.
Such writing should be worth
while ,and yet interesting to a
public of college readers.
Contestants will have a twofold
opportunity by submitting manu-
scripts. They have the inducement
of the two prizes which are being
offered, and also, their interest in
the contest will give them an op-
portunity to come in contact with
the staff of the Inlander and as-
sist it in building' the magazine
into a more representative campus
literary organ.
It is worth noting that the con-
test is open to all students in the
University, and that they have an
unusual opportunity in writing
owing to the fact that they may
treat any theme which seems suit-
able to them for a short story. The
contest will be conducted with
absolute fairness inasmuch as the
authors of the stories will not be
known to the judges. The com-
plete rules for the contest are as
1. All manuscripts must be typed,
doubled space, and on one side of
the paper only.
2. Manuscripts are to be sent to
"The Inlander", Press Building, be-
fore midnight, March Ia, 1929.
3. The name of the contestant
must not appear on the short story
submitted, but must be attached on
a separate sheet of paper along
with the title of the mahuscripts.
4. No contestant may submit
more than one story, and no mem-
ber of the Inlander staff is eligible
to compete.
5. No definite limit has been
placed on the number of words for
any short story submitted, al-
though moderation is expected.

For four nights next week, be-

will give public presentation to the
four original one-act plays which
have emerged from the contest
sponsored by the Division of Eng-

Commeiit on these plays has al-
most entirely been directed toward
the extraordinary fact that they
were written by Michigan students.

plays are a local product deserves

been a recognized activity here be-
fore, and the general condition of
