Values of Following
Christian Life.
SHOWS SCIENCE'S PART
Defining religion as living in ac-
cordance with a plan of life one be-
lieves will result in the attainment
of "super-natural" values. Prof. S.
A. Courtis, of the Philosophy de-
partment of the School of Educa-
tion, addressed the sixth of a series
of All-Campus Forums yesterday
afternoon in Alumni Memorial hall.
Stating that value is the desire to
experience a certain type of satis-
faction, Professor Courtis pointe1
out that one usually thought of it
as material worth, intellectual and
emotional worth, or the source of
a desire or feling which deter-
mines one's standard of value. "In
other words a man is happy by at-
tainment of his values. Values may
be classified as either objective and
biological or subjective and 'super-
natural.' Under the latter category

-AS TAKEN MANY ROLES
Fourth Oratorical Lecturer Has
Written and Produced
Several Plays.
E. H. Sothern, considered by
nany to be America's greatest ac-
,or, will lecture tonight at 8 'oclock
n Hill auditorium as one of the
)tstmding speakers of this year's
)ratorical association lecture series.
During the course of his talk Mr.
othern will depict several of the
hakespearean roles he has enact-
mnd on the stage and will tell some-
,hing about the characters as he
understands them.
Mr. Sothern will also discuss great
ictors and actresses and the plays
,n which they appeared; particul-
rly the works of Shakespeare, on
which he is an authority. For near-
iy 20 years Sothern and Marlow,
nown to all theatre-goers, toured
he world with a Shakespearean
roupe that has been considered the
he best of its kind, and Sothern
layed many different roles w.h ile
he company was in existence.
Born in New Orleans, La., whi>
his mother and fgather were act-
ing that city, Sothern thus breath-
d the atmosphere of the theatre
from the beginning of his life, and
in spite of the efforts of his father
o divert the boy's interest to paint-
ing, Mr. Sothern began a stage ca-i
eer which has gained him inter-
naational recognition.
Success Was Hard Work.
H-is success as an actor and pro-
ducer was hard won and the first!
few years of his career comprised
a bitter struggle. His initial debut
was a failure due to stage fright
and some of his productions were
far from financial successes. He
acted with Helen Dauvray and with
John McCullough, playing Shakes-
pearean roles with the latter until
le did "Hamlet" as a well estab-
lished star.
He was seen in leading roles in
a dozen plays produced by the Dan-
el Froham Lyceum Theatre com-
pany in New York over a period of
years and gained the reputation of
being a romantic comedian, but his
ambition was to play Shakespeare
and, in 1904, he and Julia Marlowe
organized their famous troupe.
Also An Author.
As an author Mr. Sothern has had
considerable success. "The Light
That Lies in Woman's Eyes" is con-
sidered to be the most successful
of this plays, while "The Melan-
choly Tale of Me" is an autobio-
graphy somewhat different from
the ordinary account of an actor's,
life. He has contributed many'
stories and articles to magazines
and his descriptions of his experi-
ences while entertaining' the sol-
diers at the front attracted consid-
erable attention
THORPE LAUDS ACTOR
IN CLASSICAL ROLES
"Of all the actors I have seen
play Shakespeare, none seemed to
give more individual and more en-
thusiastic inerpretation that E. H.'
Sothern." said Prof Clarence D.
Thorpe, of the rhetoric depart-
mnent, yesterday, concerning the
recital that Mr. Sothern is to give
in Hill auditorium tonight.
"In the days before he gave up
the stage, I saw him play many
times with Julia Marlow," he con-
tinued, "and it was always the
greatest pleasure .ie lived his
Shakespeare, and made his char-
acters real people to his audience.
He played his Petrochio with what
Hazlitt would have called gusto,'
and his Shylock with intensity. He
was not one of our greatest Ham-
lets, but his interpretation was
done with understanding and was
satisfying"

proposition, which would require an
amendment to the Constitution, be-

Inaugurated two years ago, the
plan has attained a large degree, of
success and has been greeted with
enth usiasm by both students and
principals, Registlar Ira Smith said
yesterday. Letters have been sent
out to all first-year students from
Michigan schools, and more than
500 freshmen are expected to con-
