Music And Drama
TONIGHT: Comedy Club pre-

* * *
With such imposing theatrical
fireworks in Ann Arbor as the The-.
ater Guild's production of "Porgy"
and Comedy Club's thrill - ,Dplo-
macy," Detroit theater business
seems rather pale and colorless.
"Porgy" scored a universal success
with the cosmic sweep of its pagen-
try which left no energy at all for
criticism, and the Comedy Club ef-
fort is so sincere and successful and
in reproducing the heavy atmos-
phere of diplomatic intrigue before
which a fascinating love drama is"
portrayed, that interest in the Mo-
tor City's offerings naturally suf-
fers. However, there are a number
of things of note.
At the Detroit Civic theatre, for-
merly the Bonstelle Playhouse, Vera
Allen, Miss Bonstelle's beauti ful and
capable importation from New
York for this season, is handl-
ing the Ethel Barrymore part of
Madame, the surgeon's wife, in W.
Somerset Maugham's glittering
comedy of marital affairs, "The
Constant Wife." Playing in a fas-
cinating vein of ironic comedy,
Miss Barrymore scored one of her
most important successes as the
wife who wittily turns the tables of
fidelity on her husband. Miss Al-
len, playing the first sympathetic
role she has had since the season
opened, seems according to all re-
ports to be giving a splendid inter-
In the special special, a revival
of Sutton Vane's "Outward Bound,"
Miss Bonstelle will make one of her
infrequent appearances next Wed-
nesday evening when she plays the
part of "Miss Midget."
At the Cass theater Arthur Ham-
merstein's musical success, "Golden
Dawn," continues for the remaind-
er of this week and all of next week.
Opening in Detroit last spring, its
success then forecast the approval
it would meet with in New York.
Its appearance now, stamped with
the badge of metropolitan approval,
guarantees a delightful evening of
popular music with a story set in
the exotic color of Africa.
"Nobody's Girl," at the Shubert
Lafayette, features a rather un-
usual plot in which the tomboy
heroine seems at first not to have

A POOR PLAY. BUT GOOD
Review by Paul L. Adams
Heavily handicapped by a deci-
dedly mediocre play, Comedy Club
nevertheless furnished a very en-
tertaining evening for the small
crowd that attended their perform-
ance of "Diplomacy" last evening.
Throughout the first two acts,
preparatory material weakened the
play terribly with obvious exposi-
tory speeches and slow building up
of the complications; but, in the
third and fourth acts, when the ac-
tors were given a chance, they gave
a really fine interpretation of this
rather out-of-date melodrama.
The play itself is certainly not
to be recommended although it
still has a certain amount of kick
in it from the point of view of plot
but the plot so obviously cramps
the characters and limits them
that its tricky -turns are hardly a
Although the cast did nobly as
a whole, several of the minor
characters deserve special mention
for their work which was excep-
tional. Among these are Leone
Lee as Mion, and George Johnson
and Elizabeth McCurdy in the role
of the Fairfazes who furnish the
comedy relief. The humorousness
of the latter was so good, that, al-
though the parts have absolutely no

SHECKELS FOR THE A. A.
The Athletic association owes a
distant debt to the student body.
When football games are being
played fort the glory of Michigan
and the replenishment of the
association's coffers, the student
body provides the team. It is the
student body, also that rallies in
support of the team and provides
much of the atmosphere in the
stadium that paying patrons come
miles to experience and to be a part
Without a student body there
would be no football games, and
therefore we submit that the stu-
dents are entitled to'some consid-
eration when the pasteboards are
assigned through the officeof the
We also recognize that there are
certain obligations that the associ-
ation owes to ,Michigan alumni.
Friends of the University have
made possible the erection of our
new stadium-a logical, forward
step in the development of ath-
letics here that deserves universal
commendation. To these friends,
occasionally but not grudgingly re-
ferred to as "bloated bondholders,"
we concede preference in ticket dis-
Nor do we attach any stigma to
the name of Harry Tillotson, busi-
ness manager of the Athletic associ-
ation, who finds it among his sev-
eral duties to supervise the sale of
tickets. It is not his fault that
four-year men on the campus are
still sitting around the corners of
the stadium. He is forwarding the
policy of the association to keep as
voluminous as possible a stream of
shekles dropping in the coffer,.
and the shekels, it is realized, are
chiefly forthcoming from persons'
not enrolled in the University.
Against this policy we point our
jeremiad. We hold that good seats
should be given to bondholders,
members of the M-club, and mem-
bers of the team. But we fail
signally to see why the student
body, according to the number of
their years on the campus, should
not be next in preference.
HUGHES AND PROHIBITION
Charles E. Hughes, aged, experi-
enced, and dignified, has entered2
the political arena, with staunch(
statements as to the effect of thei
presidential election next Tuesday.
Governor Smith's election, he
says, would lead to "far greater

TO THE LANDLADIES
It was with a great deal of dis-
gust and no little amusement that
I read yesterday's headlines,
"Rooming House Owners Oppose
New Dormitory." It was with even
more amusement that I read the
1 reason offered by the petitioners.
It is obviously true that the real
estate investments of the owners
will be jeopardized by the erection
of the dormitory. But it is also
obviously true that the realization
of a long-planned and long-hoped-
for building-the necessity of which
is so imminent-cannot be defer-
red for so selfish a desire on the
part of these owners.
It is appreciated by both the fac-
ulty and the student body that
these property owners are depen-
dent -for their existence on their
real estate and the renting of their
houses. But do not the owners
themselves realize that had they, in
the past, presented to the students.
the privileges and comforts which
are so essential, there would have
been no immediate necessity for a
"We feel that there are certain
rights and safeguards to which the
property owners of the city are en-
titled, and for that reason we ask
for an investigation to determine
if such a move as that suggested is
the best one from all angles."-to
quote Mr. N. E. Brown. The answer
to that is so apparent as to be sim-
ple. Of course such a move is not
the best from all angles. It is not
best from THEIR angle. Yet "they
have no desire to be unfair" . . But
are they not being outrageously un-
fair? Deprive us students of a dor-,
mitory, in order that property own-
ers might continue to accept our
money, grow fat on us in exchange
for the privilege of living in their
And they "consider it only right f
that they should know exactly what
is happening." It is to laugh . .
What is happening is this: The
officials are actively working out
something that has been talked
over and quibbled over long enough.
There will be a decrease in the de-
mand for the houses, and the own-
ers will no longer be able to extert
unreasonable prices for their rooms.
That is all.
I do not believe that any intelli-
gent official would or could grant
