nappeneC, tnat the University would have learned a
lesson, but with the closing of Delta Sigma Phi last
week it apepars that it has not. The action, stated
press accounts, was taken by alumni of the fraternity.
Dean Bursley verified the statement and said he knew
nothing of the action until informed what had been
done by the alumni organizations. Members of the
Delta Sigma Phi fraternity and alumni, however, said
that the action was taken because they feared even
greater punishment from the University.

Just now it is not important who was responsible
for the closing of the fraternity, but the fact that the,
University, under no circumstances, should have per-_
mitted such action. Naturally the closing of a house,
would create publicity and it did, although past
action of the administration has shown that they
are seeking to avoid unfavorable newspaper talk.
Delta Sigma Phi should have been regulated within
the body if publicity was to be avoided, as well as for
the god of the organization. Instead the University
received publicity, members are living unregulated
and scattered throughout the city, and the organiza-
tion will go into their house next fall with an un-
.. .Fraternities at Michigan, if they are to continue
to exist on this campus, will have to back the Inter-
fraternity council to the limit, they must stick to-
gether as a group, and they must demand fairness
from the administration. Next fall they will have
a great start since the new constitution of the coun-
cil gives the fraternities power to govern themselves
to a great extent. This power must be taken, it must
be used justly, and above all the administration and
the council should remember that the precedent of
closing fraternities for infractions of University regu-
lations has been a distinct failure. '32.
Music and Drama
IN CONTRAST to the emotional role of Electra in
the opening play of the Dramatic Season in the
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre, Blanche Yurka, the dis-
tinguished New York star, opens Monday evening,
June 1, for a weeks' run in the leading comedy role of
Sil-Vara's "Caprice." Miss Yurka will appear as the
sophisticated Madame Ilsa von Ilsen, which will per-
mit her to display her marked talents as a com-
medienne and which will present her in an entirely
different type of part from her performance during
the past week.
"Caprice" is the recent New York Theatre Guild
success, originally starring Alfred Lunt, Lynn Fon-
tanne and Ernest Cossart. The comedy ran for a
year in New York and for another season on tour.
Mr. Cossart, who is now in Ann Arbor rehearsing for
his opening bill as Sir Wilful Witwood in "The Way of
the World," has assisted in the direction of "Caprice"
and has given the entire company all of the original
action of the New York production.
Blanche Yurka is said to be eager to appear in
the comedy role of Madame Ilsen in "Caprice," be-
cause audiences recently have come to associate her
with emotional parts rather than high comedy in
which she made her first success. This past year,
however, she returned again to comedy as star of
the New York production of "Lysistrata" with marked
popular favor. Previously she had appeared in comedy
successes with David Belasco and as co-star with
E. H. Sothern, Charlotte Walker and Jane Cowl, Miss
Yurka is a close friend of Lynn Fontanne who gave
her valuable suggestions on the part in "Caprice"
just before the company left New York for Ann Arbor,
Opposite Blanche Yurka will appear Reynolds
Evans, leading man of the Dramatic Sseason, as the
Counsellor von Echardt, originally played by Alfred
Lunt. Ann Arbor audiences remember with pleasure
Mr. Evans' work in such high comedies as "The Last
of Mrs. Cheyney" and "Aren't We All?"
The setting for "Caprice".is continental Vienna of
today, and the comedy centers about Counselor von
Echardt, a suave man of the world, and the woman
he loves, the brilliant Madame von Ilsen. As the
Spring seems to be here with a
bang. Today we saw a class of stu-
dents sitting on the grass outside
Angell hall. They didn't appear to
be a botany class because they
weren't looking at leaves or any-
thing. The instructor looked sort
of frantic and helpleses and was
crying to make himself the center
of attractioA. The majority of the
student body was engaged in
watching co-eds on State street,
watching squirrels in trees, and
watching insect life in the grass.
Another campus"' mystery has
been uncovered by the Rolls Pher-
ret, and we are putting the facts
before the public in an effort to
find the solution. There is a circle
in the sidewalk right out in front
of the Union measuring perhaps
three feet in diameter. Any expla-
nations that may be forthcoming
will be joyfully received by this col-

at his house with their sixteen year old son and asks
him to assume the care of their boy. The complica-
tion of reconcilling the sophisticated Madame von
Ilsen with the naive boy create the farce of the play,
especially as both father and son fall in love with her.
Other members of the cast of "Caprice" include
Robert Henderson as the boy: Doris Dalton as his
young mother; Amy Loomis as the . Delicate Lady;
John Collins as the Doctor; and Dorothy Scott as'
Minna, the old retainer. There will be Wednesday
and Saturday matinees of "Caprice" in the Lydia
Mendelssohn theatre. At the added Thursday mat-
inee, June 4, Strindberg's "The Father" will again be
given, preceded by a poetry recital by Blanche Yurka.
The Dramatic Season is receiving marked atten-
tion from the New York and Boston newspapers, the
recent issue of the Sunday New York Times carrying
two reviews of the "Electra." Five of the national
theatrical maga'zines for June are carrying articles on
the season, and the Boston Transcript contained a
lengthy summary of the season by H. T. Parker, the
distinguished Boston critic.
Of "Caprice," Mr. Parker said, "It is a civilized
play, benign, dashed with sentiment, dashed with
cynicism; taking the hour of pleasure and moment of
pain, light-fingered with the one, grave-eyed with
the other; sensuous always, gay of word while the
glance turns wistful, the Viennese temperament is
irressistable. "Caprice" is a light and gamesome eve-
ning. These Viennese, like Sil-Vara, have deliciously
