A Review by William J. Gorman.
Mr. Rice's journalism is admir-
able. He has taken his camera to
a vivid scene, simple, lucid (per-
haps unimportant) in its dramatic
implications, yet inclusive enough
of engaging colors from the melt-
ing pot 'and curious incidents to
justify dramatic reproduction. His
realism is quite without the de-
termined dullness of writers who
wish to insist on it. He is capable
of very-genuine economy of por-
traiture. And he has such a good
ear for the swiftly-characterizing
cliches that in the first act he is
able to make a mere medley of gos-
sipy platitudes quite amusing. The
material he takes from life is thor-
oughly tractable dramatically;
that is, dramatic production can
realize all its values. It is a good
play; obviously not a great play
because its pretensions are mere-
ly photographic.
The production had many inter-

President Ruthven's exposition
of his cabinet form of government
is another sign, if more are needed,
of the soundness of his administra-
tion. It definitely discredits that
group of malcontent progressives
who have criticized him for sitting

lege of taking a final examination,
there certainly should be no reluc-'
tance about paying at least twenty-
five cents to aid the S. C. A. in
financing the convocations, which
have been without exception very
well attended.j
If speakers of the high calibre
of those who have appeared in the
past are to be brought here for fu-

student body to put quarters, not
nickels, in the collection basin.

Dear Joe: I see that they're

of the University in, her own un-
progressive way. ,
It is no secret, either here or
abroad, that Michigan just at pres-
ent is not at the height of her rep-{
utation. On the part of some Uni-
versity's officers, however, there
has been a marked reluctance to
acknowledge this fact; and lest
the skeletons be heard rattling in
the closet they have set up a great
cry of "traitor" whenever less com-
placent people have suggested that
the house be set in order. Some-
how' their jingoism has risen su-
perior even to their five senses.
When President Ruthven was
elevated to the White House, those
who saw the weaknesses and the1
shortcomings of the University
were afraid he too might deny the
fallen estate of Michigan's prestige
and decide to let well enough alone.
This fear has vanished. After sev-
eral months of careful examina-
tion he has expressed the opinion,
well substantiated, that much of
our administrative machinery is
rusty and antiquated, and he has set
about the task of restoring it to
an efficiency consistent with the
enormous task it must perform.
By eliminating administrative red-
tape he would make it easier to ef-
fect necessary and desirable
changes. His own job, he believes,
is not to pressagent the Univer-
sity or to mold it in accordance
with his will, but to listen to his
faculties, weigh their opinions on
the state of the University, and
execute the policies dictated; by
their judgments combined with his.

cast interesting as an actress. She

A Review by Mary Louise Bhymer.
To one expecting to be enter-
tained by delightful, if whimsical,
fantasies of natural dancing such
as have been presented by Orche-
sis in former years, the dance re-
cital Friday night could scarcely
be said to fulfill anticipations. It
was entertaining, to be sure, butI
not particularly because of any
outstanding natural dancing.
Considering the size of the cast
taking part in the program and
the greatly varying sizes of the
individual participants, good train-
ing was evident in the mechanics
of the performance. The opening
number, the Triumphant Frieze, is
to be commended for the attention
to rythm and bodily control. The
divisions of the frieze, the storm
of battle, followed by victory with
her attendants who trailed off in-
to the bedraggled remnants of the
vanquished, were very well inter-
preted and portrayed.
The more typically natural
dances which followed the open-
ing number were a bot too mech-
anical. The variation between
hysterics and stage fright detract-
ed from the beauty of the designs
and the technalities of the danc-
ing, and made the dancers appear
to be mere robots with the addi-
tion of a certain human graceful-
Costumes, staging effects, and
music were satisfactory through-
out, but with the exception of the
gnome-dance, the Marche by Pro-
kofieff, there was nothing star-
ling about them. The number just
mentioned was, I believe, the best
