The best people, I am told,
vastly prefer to lilt in their

at least until they get really

the public censure which in-
evitably follows such procedures
that they don't care when little
boys run alongside of them
down the street shouting "Oh,
Lookie!-The funny man's been

always tell,-the little devils!
And as just one last word on the
subject, I should advise everyone
that can lay hands on it to cut out
and preserve a copy of the adver-
tisement of "CAME THE DAWN"
which appeared in last Saturday's
Daily. It will be a wonderful illus-
tration for your lectures in the fu-
ture as to what a lousy showTHE
JUNIOR GIRLS' PLAY was back in

didn't have some incontrovertible
evidence like that. The ad itself
is worth $2.50 of anybody's money.

It seems there was a travelling
salesman who was going on an ex-
pedition to hunt AUKS. At the

turn of the road down by old Cy
Higgins barn he met a farmer's
daughter. She'd met travelling
salesmen before, so she says "Where
are you going?" and he says "Auk-
ward honey Auk-ward." and that's
all there is to that one and I'll just
bet you're glad it is, too. I know
I am.
And by the way, I am informed
by a reliable authority on such
matters that an Ann Arbor Ecclesi-
astic says that Ann Arbor is the
home of Pigsty Philosophy and that
all of us who succumb to it are
bound straight for infernal regions
(he saidHELL but I can't get away
with that stuff in a column like
this). I- had already formed my
own opinions as to the Philosophy
taught here, and Pigsty wasn't any
part of them, but that stuff about
going places unspeakable is nothing
new. Indeed I wish to state right
now that our pulpit pounding pal
is a nasty old plagiarist and I'd
rather be a pigsty philosopher than

A Review By Mary Louise Behymer.
Laughing, loving and dancing,
the juniors of 1931 are bound
straight for success in their spark-
ling college comedy, "Came The
Dawn." You'll certainly regret it
if you don't see it, and find out how
they proved to Professor Holcomb
that the modern collegian is Not
the most abnormal species of so-
A great deal of credit is due Miss
Amy Loomis, the director of the
twenty-seventh annual JuniorGirls'
Play, and to Emily Bates and her
committee who have been respon-
sible for the executive work.
The "sacrifice to science and so-
ciety" furnished an amusing plot
for the play, laid in a typical col-
lege setting. Clever contrasts be-
tween professor and student afford-
ed opportunity for a constant flow
of wit. Local scenes and characters
lived up to their reputation.
Experienced dramatic ability was
quite apparent throughout. Mildred
Todd carried her part very well as
2he studious laboratory assistant
who, incidentally, became the most
popular girl on campus during her
research for material for Professo
Holcomb's great project. She sue-
cssfully captivated the heart of
Ernie, played by Dorothy Felske,
who was The Daily reporter scorn-
ful of anything that smacked of the
The comedy leads were unani-
mously awarded their laurels. Helen
Marie Dooley, as Mamie, and Es-
ther La Rowe, as Cecil Sappe were
the source of almost continuous
laughter from the audience. The
younger sister who tried to imitate
the popular and truly charming
co-ed, played by Mary Rich, was
not only a splendid actress but also
a very good dancer.
It is impossible to overlook the
professor and his wife, Catherine
Robinson and Helen Van Loon.
Good make-up on the part of Miss
Robinson would deceive even a
professor, and the entanglements
into which he got himself because
of the necessary secrecy connected
with his project played an import-
ant part in the plot.
In mentioning the plot, may I
offer my congratulations to the
joint editors-Donna Jones and
Jeanie Roberts. It was more than
usually interesting for the bookof
a musical comedy.
-Pretty girls and pretty costumes
were evident in all of the choruses,
cspecially in the style parade. A
toe-dance chorus was appreciated
in the retinue after its marked ab-
sence for several years in Junior
Gills' Plays. Never have the smiles
been broader or the kicks higher
than in the choruses this year.
Clever novelty numbers were in-
troduced, both within the play and
between scenes. Perhaps the most
outstanding and unusual was the
Vindelska, a Finish folk dance done
by a chorus dressed in colorful na-
tive costumes. Helen Haapamaki,
who played the part of Lisa, the
maid, sang the accompanying song
in the native tongue, adding a uni-
que touch to the music.
The sets were effective and real-
istic. In particular the portrayal
of a popular campus rendezvous
was particularly well-done. A wait-
ers chorus during this scene called

for repeated encores, and the sing-
ing of "One Little Day" will add an-
other song to the list of the most
popular ones from Junior Girls'
The scene in the girls' dormitory
was a high spot in the performance.
The co-eds getting ready for dates,
and playing bridge, and one stu-
dious member calling for "quiet
hours" was an accurate portrayal
of a college girl's life.
But I wont tell you any more of
the mysteries of this scintillating,
peppy comedy. You will have to
see it for yourself to appreciate iMs
qualities-and then you will, want
to see it again as much as I do.
The royalties earned by a current
"best-seller" are transforming the
island of Capri, off the coast of
Italy, into a bird sanctuary.
"The Story of San Michele," which
has topped the sales, of non-fiction
books in the United States for
nearly a year, is providing the
money, and the book's author, Dr.
Axel Munthe, once again is medi-
tating on the strange fates of life.
A weighty tone with an unre-
vealing title, "The Story of San
Michele" was introduced in the
United States in October, 1929,

Women and children working through the long night hours

From competitive chaos in the textile industry order and

Cotton-Textile Institute, an agency of the industry's own
creation, the end of night work for women and minors has
been decreed.
This single step projects on the horizon the following bene-
fits: (1) Full time for the day worker instead of part time for
him and the night worker; (2) more orderly production;

textile industry is raising its head and its good news is

S Underneath all this new progress there will be found, as
