HAIL POMMERENING
Grantland Rice has picked what
is generally conceded to be the of-
ficial all-American for 1928. In-
cluded in the 11 regulars recog-
nized for' that honor is Pommeren-
ing of Michigan. Such recognition
must not pass without fitting com-
ment. Michigan is proud of her
Pommerening. Congratulations,
Otto!
THAT PEACE PACT
Sometime soon the Paris Peace
pact will pass from the tender
mercies of the foreign relations
committee to our hard-headed
Senate, which is expected at least
to propose some reservations in
behalf of the Monroe doctrine and
the country's policy of ignoring
Russia.
It is rather difficult to see how
an intelligent body can find any
perils in a pact as innocuous as
Mr. Kellogg's. The 15 high con-
tracting parties solemnly bind

themselves to renounce war as an
instrument of policyaand settle
their difficulties by pacific means.
In other words it focuses a senti-
ment that has been generally ac-
cepted since the World War.
There is nothing mandatory
about the pact such as provided
the "splendid isolationists" with
an appeal against the League of
Nations. There is no hint of dis-
armament to alarm the militarists.
President Coolidge, in fact, wants
the present Congress to pass both
the Kellogg pact and his $180,000,-'
000 cruiser bill.
The- threat against the Monroe
doctrine is even vaguer than the
pact itself, for it is hard to see how
a pacifistic utterance can imperil,
the validity of our interests in:
South and Central America. TheI
pact does not provide any nation
with the assurance that we will.
remain neutral to unfriendly in-
terference in our most important
sphere of influence.
Yet harmless though the pactI
is, it represents a step forward forl
this country, a concrete proof to
Europe that our intentions are not
bellicose, and a document that
peace sentiment can rally around
until the next war becomes inevit-
able. We should sign it withoutl

thing constructive in his adminis-RO
tration's foreign policy. 3 1 D

"RAINBOW'S END"
A Review By Sylvia S. Stone
With a combination of good mu-
sic, excellent costuming and some
fine bits of acting, "Rainbow's End"
goes a long way toward redeeming
the Opera after the showing of the I
past few years,
Bob (Sidney Straight), the hand- '
some blonde hero, is, quite at home
on the stage, and in addition has
a voice which adds considerably to
even the best musical selection.E
Heyman, Lewis and Watkins have E
done a nice piece of work with theE
musical numbers, and one remem-
bers particularly Heyman's "Pow- t
Wow Papa," as presented by the
versatile Buell, and his melodious
"Rainbow's End"; Lewis' "Mexi-
cana" has an excellent rhymic
swing. The lyrics show originality
and more thought than has been
given them for several years past,
resulting in a clever novelty in
"Wide Open Spaces," a radish ridi-
culousness in "Pow Wow Papa" and
the appealing sentimentality of
"Rainbow's End."
Dan Buell, who plays the part
of Rita LeDoux, the soubrette of
the troupe, is half the show. He,
or rather she, supplies both humor
and some outstanding clog special-
ties, being accompanied in the lat-
ter by several cowboys, whose clog-
ging deserves high commendation.
For coyness Buell rivals the femin-
ine of the species itself.
Harlan Christy adds a relishable
bit of acting in his part as "Ike,"
elderly ex-cowboy employed on the
ranch, and general woman-hater,
while Richard Kurvink has learned
to sway quite admirably as a Span-
ish widow should. One feels disap-
pointed that Senora Mercedes is
not given more opportunity to
demonstrate her abilities in a
dance number, particularly since
the subservient Miguel is right at
hand.
George Johnson fills the bill so
completely as "Jack Denton," man-
ager of the troupe, that one won-
ders why heiis merely "pinch-hit-
ting" for William Day.
From a woman's point of view,
the opera presents feminine ap-
parel this year, for the first time
in many years, that can be ac-
knowledged as such without blush-
ing. After a display such as that
in "Rainbow's End," Peter March
(Milton Peterson) should have lit-
tle difficulty in keeping Lester in
Chicago.
In addition to being colorful, the
gowns were in keeping with styles
of the day, and the use of a num-
ber of sport outfits showed a com-
mon-sense eye for the proper
clothing for boyish forms. It is sur-
prising, too, how successfully a hat
will introduce appealing shadows
and femininity; the costumer was
aware of this and made good use
of hats, which in addition created
effective color costumes. Harmony
between the coloring of costumes
and the setting was more easily
accomplished this year, and the use
of the rainbow theme in the dress
is interestingly worked out.
The performance opens effec-
tively but too slowly, and requires
all of Buell's versatility to carry it
over several other portions that
tend to drag. The choruses have a
fine arrangement of dances, espec-
ially well-executed by the men's

chorus. The girls' chorus began
weakly but ended up with a
flourish.
The selection of chorines seems
particularly fortunate this year,
some of tne youths possessing en-
viable forms and faces. Speaking,
of feminine beauty, William
Browne comes in for mention in
his role as Sylvia Lee, star of the
theatrical troupe. He is at his best
in the "Western Stop" number.
The use of a male chorus whose
chief value lies in its voices is an
excellent innovation that is fully
appreciated in the "Song of the
Cowboys" and the opening and
closing hymns.
The book of the opera is un-
usually coherent, and does not
seem to have been written merely
as a string with which to tie the
choruses together. While the book
itself is devoid of humorous lines,
Buell, Christy and Johnson furnish
amusement.
