THIS DORMITORY PROBLEM
With several 'of Ann Arbor's citi-
zens outraged and fulminating, and'
at least one of Ann Arbor's more
prominent semi-weeklies backing
their cause with the biggest type
in its composing room, the steam
shovels on Observatory street con-1
tinue wheezily about their business
of digging foundations for the new
girls' dormitory, and ,'Governor
Green has not as yet stopped them
with a peremptory executive order
as citizen Brown seems c~nfidently
to have expected he would.
The governor:referred our feveredf
landladies to the Regents, who rub-,
ber stamp President Little's
plans with machine-like precision,
and this dormitory is very much a'
Little plan. The governor could
hardly have supported the dormi-
tory more definitely.
So now the militant cause of
dirtier rooms at higher.prices is de-
bating the alternatives of court ,ac-
tion to secure an injunction and
lobbying the legislature into pass-
ing a law against dormitories.
Meanwhile landladies are adding to
the prospective economic loss -they
protest so vehemently by chipping
a dollar apiece into the fund to
provide the sinews of war against
the University.-
Thus it begins to look as though"
the dormitory would go up. It
also begins to look as though the
worthy souls who are deigning to
let students try to keep body, soul
and passing marks together on
crushed-gravel mattresses in verit-
able black holes of Calcutta at six
and seven dollars a' week will cut
prices or go out of business. Male
students, moreover, will inherit the
better living quarters that here-
tofore have been reserved for wo-
men, and those women who cannot
find accommodations in the new
dormitory will stand a better
chance of getting a hot bath with-
out having to sign a long waiting
list.
None the .less, if the landladies,
haven't a strong cause from the
standpoint of student prejudice,
their position is easily understand-
able, and in some phases quite rea-
sonable. It is quite possible that
the University could reduce the
wails to a whisper if it would be
willing to go half way and meet

A glittering comedy attraction
which should pile the business upa
in thoroughly satisfying heaps is 1
the Cass' attraction for next week,
"Burlesque." An immense success
in New York -it opened early,
about the same time with "Good
News," which seems to have been a
happy omen-it is now engaged in
reaping the profits of its out-of-
town fame. Fully as important as
the play itself is the word that Hal
Skelly and Barbara Stanwyck are
retained intact to head the cast.
Both made big personal hits in the
show in Gotham-for lack of a
better name to designate that bud
ding seaport town on the coast of
New Jersey-but Mr.. Arthur Hop-
kins, the producer and co-author,
felt himself too weak-and he was
very much surprised when he dis-
covered this-to divorce these be-
loved stars from the roles to which'
they had become thoroughly at-
tached. The result is Detroit's gain,
and New York's loss, no doubt.
Mr. Skelly by dint of consider-
able effort managed to get himself
transferred from his musical ac-
tivities to take over his part of the
more or less "bad egg" hoofer in
the play, and it was with consider-
able, dismay that he saw himself,
by his success on the legitimate
boards, attracting a large mob who
could think of nothing but Skell'
Thisi might seriously interfere with
his vaudeville audiences. Conse-
quently he is more than delighted
to be the honored guest of the
Motor City, even though it be on
matters of business.
Miss Stanwyck's biography, fas-
cinating as it is, can only be
setched briefly because, as she has
so charmingly put it, no doubt, s
is still so much thrilled with the
present that she has no energy left
to recall the past in a biographical
way. When she does get down to
business along this line, she will
surely title her, book, "From Night-
Club to 'Burlesque'," for that epi-,
tomizes her dramatic career, except
for a possible interlude coming in'
the middle when she played a "bit,"
for no apparently good reason at
all.
"Burlesque" itself, as countless
New York friends undoubtedly have
already advised millions of rustic
relatives, deals with the difficulties
a hard-working trouper has with
his ego when he finally lands on
Broadway. What with liquor, suc-
cess, and the 5c subway fare in
that big city, young married life
backstage has its moments, and the
eternal verities have a bad time of
it until womanly faith, or some-
thing of that general description,
reestablishes them in the final
scene. Laid kitty-corner in the
drafty cave of backstage, "Burles-
que" is a- fascinating treatment of
reality underneath the mask of
make-believe.

SANDBURG, LYRICIST
Carl Sandburg, appearing under
the auspies of The Inlander, again -
adds to the total of his already
numerous, appearances locally. Fri-
day even~ihg of this week, at 8:00
o'clock, h will give a reading of
his poeis.
Strangely enough the tradition
has grown up around Sandburg,
even more insistently mistaken
than in the case of Vachel Lindsay,
that his poems are to be read. A
visual minded public, brought up

on the eyefflling fare of Spencer,
Shelly, Keats et al, in spite of its
thorough training in the lyric stuff
of the great American amusement
of vaudeville, still insists on a si-
lent poetry appealing only to the
senses through the eye. Lindsay
fights this dullness by making his
poems so obviously in Jthe lyric
mold, occasionally even in the
familiar hymnal style, that their
musical intentions cannot be mis-
taken. The mass of his work la-
bors under this handicap. But
Sandburg, intending to achieve the
same appreciation, makes no sacri-
fices, however, to the heavy mind-
edness of his readers-with the in-
evitable consequences that he is ac-
cused of ugliness,' and a certain
absorption in the sordid.
For full appreciation his poetry
requires, not an appreciation of the
rhythmic; element as is true of
Lindsay, but of the less tangible
and more delicate coloring ele-
ments of vowel sounds groupings
within the line of verse. It de-
mands a more sensitive rendition,
and a more particularized atten-
