It is believed an arrangement can be worked out
whereby Smedley Butler gets into trouble the first
three days of the week, and Sinclair Lewis put his
foot in it from then on.-The Detroit News.

Music and Drama
W HAT is probably the best comedy of manners,
a completely unmoral and delightful play about1
the people who in all time considered themselves"
the wisest and the wittiest is the next play in Mr.
Henderson's Dramatic season. This play is of course1
"The Way of the World," by Congreve. It will be thel
fourth play of the season, "Electra," "The Father,"
and "Caprice' having already been played.
"The Way of the World" was first played in 1700
very much in fashion and very muh enjoyed by the
masked ladies and their partners. It is the perfect
description of a period which is perhaps analogous
with our own, the "way of the world" being the
curious and sometimes popular philosophy of getting
what one can without paying too much for it. The
people in it are thoroughly convinced that they are
There exists at present still in some quarters the
curious turn of morality which led to sentimentalism
in England, which condemned the "Way of the
World;" In fact New York critics, who are supposed
to be somewhat cynical about such things, rather
foolishly complained about the lack of sentiment in
the play. Be it said that "The Way of the World"
is not romantic (in that perhaps it does not find its
counterpart on the modern stage), but it is delightful
theatre, entirely adequate in itself.
The real-wit and hero, the believer in "the restor-
ation way of the world," Mirabell, is played by Rey-
nolds Evans. Opposite him in the part of Millament
is Blanche Yurka. Ernest Cossart plays the part of
the ridiculed but good-natured country relative on
his way abroad, who takes off his boots in the draw-
ing room, half-brother to the would-be-wit; he plays
Sir Wilfull Witwood, the part he has just played in
the Players Club revival in New York.
After "The Way of the World," Bernard Shaw's
play of the Swiss soldier among the ridiculous
Bavarians, "Arms and the Man," will be seen. "Arms
and the Man" is possibly the most delicious satire
on the military hero we know. One of the characters
tells the story of a charge he made on the Switzers,
waving his sword into the teeth of the enemy. The
enemy, the Swiss are quite bored. They would have
shot him despite all his shouting and arm-waving,
if their war department had sent them bullets which
fit their rifles.
Violet Heming, Tom Powers and Ernest Cossart
will play the leading parts in it.
At the Saturday matinee and night, June 20, Noel
Coward's "Private Lives" will open for its first pro-
duction outside of New York and London. Tom
Powers and Violet Heming will be starred.
"Private Lives" is that inimitable and popular
comedy (it will be still playing to "standing-room
only" at the Selwyn theatre in New York on June 20)
in which Gertrude Lawrence and Noel Coward be-
came very famous by lying on a couch together, feet
in each other's arms, smoking cigarettes during a
whole scene. Of course there is also dialogue.
y ESTERDAY the arrangement of plans for the
third season of the Michigan Reportory Players
was announced by Mr. Valentine B. Windt, director
of the season. .The Players is an organization of



SUNDAY, JUNE 7, 1931 -
Will The Deferred
Rushing System Work?
JPPERMOST in the minds of most fraternity
men on leaving school will be the thought of
next year's rushing-the number of men to be
pledged and the methods by which to do it. And
naturally, the regulations of the Interfraternity'
Council in regard to deferred rushing will be read
by many for the first time.
Although we hold no brief for the present sys-'
tem, as detailed in a rather explicit manner by the
Constitution of the Council, we recognize that the'
system will at least be in force next year, and hence
the cooperation of all fraternities will be necessary,
in order to give the new order a fair trial. Any
slight hint as to violation by one house will cause,
many others to do the same, and the rules will fall
as quickly as they were made. For this reason, it
is vital that every fraternity on the campus obey
the regulations to the very letter, as any deviation
from the proper course will probably result in an
even more cut-throat rushing season than existed
under last year's methods.
For this reason, we take this opportunity to
announce a policy of cooperation to the fullest ex-
tent with the Interfraternity Council in the en-
forcement of the rushing regulations. Complete
publicity will be given to all violations of the rules,
with respect to the individuals as well as the
organizations concerned. This is the only manner
in which underhand rushing tactics can be com-
batted, and we will welcome every opportunity
to assist the Council in its work.

We don't Know wust what to do'
about this chain letter business. We
have it all figured out that the bad
luck tomorrow is the fact that the
Daily won't be published on that
day, nor on any other day this
year, because this is the last Daily
of the year..
Next Thursday our exams
will all be over with. Where'is
any bad luck there? We are in-
clined to hoot at the whole'bus-
iness and say it is all a nasty
frameup. Somebody is just try-
ing to intimidate us, that's
Our Yankee greed was all whet-
ted up at the prospect of getting
twenty-five dollars reward for the
location of the DKE chapel gates.
We went around there but there
isn't anything left but half of the
hinges and a tombstone labelled
"Abe." There weren't any foot-
prints around so there isn't any
way of finding out where the gates
are. Its a shame, thats what it is.
Such depredations are to be de-
plored. Haw haw.

Dear Smiley:
The question in my mind
is why have they discontinued
furnishing soap to the "almost
athletes" at the Intramural
building? You know cleanli-
ness is next to Godliness and
no soap means that the stu-
dents will be way below Godli-
ness. Oh do something, or else.
I am not yours,
Listen here Nertz, I wouldn't
want you for a valentine, not that
way, anyway, and furthermore you
can get a cake of soap for a pence,
and even if you haven't got a
pence if you would look around on
the floor you could find any num-
ber of soap. Its time to go down
and clean out your locker and go
home, anyway. This is a farewell
column and it can't be messed up
with any sentimental soap stuff.
We had to laugh a bit at the
poor old newspaper boys about
that Do-X affair. All the pa-
pers in the country carried ban-
ner stories about how the Do-X
was drowned at sea, when all
the time the Do-X was sailing
sturdily on tc "\!azil or some-
where. Its a fine world...

We are getting pretty sore at the
Note Editor of this paper. Such a
person always putting in wisecracks
about the column any place he sees
( occasion to is a demoralizing in-
fluence on the Editorial Staff. To-
night this column is going to
press without an Editor's Note or
we'll jolly well know the reason
why not. (Editor's Note: Oh it will,
will it?)

Examinations are apt to be.-
come boring if you don't watch
out, and not only to the in-
structor but boring to you. per-
haps the insertion of a few
wise cracks into the blue-book
would cheer things up and con-
vince the instructor that you

are a fine fellow after-all.

The way newspaper people write
stories is positively i r r i t a t i n g
Yesterday they told all about how
Private Osborne got up in the air,
opened his parachute too soon, and
how the "big white skirt" of the
parachute "flew backward catch-
ing in the tail assemblage, and on-
ly then did Private Osborne decide
to bail out." Here the story ends,
w i t h private Osborne dangling
from the end of the plane. The
story tells us however that Private
Osborne finally ended up safely;
how, nobody seems to know. Any-
one who knows how Private Os-
borne got out of the air should
spend the rest of the week mak-
ing announcements to the anxious
