clamped its gnashing jaws in glut-
tonous ecstasy last night. Hardly
had the bugles of either party
sounded the welcome notes of re-
treat when a special corps of doc-
tors and nurses from the health
service arrived and ministered what
aid and comfort was possible to
battered and fallen warriors. The
bugle bleats of peace were echoed
ironically by the groans and
- screams issuing from the torn and
maimed bodies of the fallen heroes.
The battle began approximately
at 8:32 p. m. The second year horde,
swarming down from the hinter-
land in perfect squad formation
descried the waiting columns of
yearlings entrenched on the former
site of Clippy Stadium. With a
scream of rage which issued as if
from a single throat and rever-
berated with the ominous note of
a death - knell presaging the
slaughter to come, both battalions
charged and met with terrific im-
pact in a milling, bestial, brobdig-
nagian onslaught.
The rest is history.
Old Michigan graduates, mellow
with years and good brandy, must
have breathed a reminiscent sigh
for the old days when Black Friday
really meant putting the fresh-
men on the spot when sophomores
sallied forth on the eve of the fall
games. As they lined the curbs of
the streets adjoining the campus
to watch this year's renewal of the
old tradition, they saw what re-
sembled a kindergarten drill. All
.that was needed was a band to
play "Good Evening, Dear Teach-
As the representatives of botli
classes, garbed ferociously in sweat
shirts and red and green paint,
spied each other, they sprinted
with a mighty charge-until they
were within a reassuring 10 feet;
then came dead halt. The leaders,
conscious of the audience, felt that
something should be done. They
stepped into no-man's land and
made a few furtive passes at each'
other, meticulously cautious not to
(a) step on the grass, (b) to beat
down shrubbery, or, most of all, (c)'
to beat up each other.
Exhaustion brought mediation.
Mediation brought conference. Con--
ference gave birth to an idea:
Forces united in eternal brother-1
hood (ah, the insidious influencet
of reformers, leagues of nations,
naval treaties, Washington Confer-
ences, et al., on our youth!), they
whooped it up over to the Michi-
gan and stormed to the door. Theref
they were met by a nattily-uni-c
formed usher who politely inform-P
ed them that if they wished toF
gain admittance they would have1
to pay the regular admission price.c
He was sorry, but that was a rule
of the theater over which he hade
no control.
And the fighting cohorts of 19331
and 1934 meekly about-faced anda

the Hoosier city, the nation's press
took off their hats and cheered one
of the gamest, most courageous
exhibitions of perseverance ever
displayed in American journalism.
Here's what DALE went through.
When he was quite young he
decided to start work on a news-
paper, and, after trying several un-
satisfactory posts, found one in
Muncie, Ind., a town where "there
were more things to kick about
than any town in the country."
That's what he told the state's
press, assembled in Ann Arbor this
week, at an afternoon session on
Thursday. DALE saw the corrup-
tion in the mayor's chair, he saw
it sticking out all over the city
council, the police force; in fact
there wasn't a single public office
which DALE didn't discover was I
being run by one of the most'
closely knit political machines inI
Indiana's history.
So DALE went after the politi-
cians and started to clean up the
city of Muncie, a populous of some
50,000, with his pen and his little
weekly paper. At first he made
little or no impression, but con-
stant pounding at the city and its
master minds began to get under'
the skins of several in the great

should he be renamed, his position
will be insecure and uneviable.
On the other hand, should Dem-
ocratic leader GARNER be named
speaker of the House, LONG-
WORTH can makeuconsiderable
trouble for him. This fact is fully
recognized by both men.
With true political astuteness,
Representative KVALE refused to
make any definite statement and
said, "Changes will inevitably take
place in the personnel of the House
but I see no immediate need for
making a decision."

presented by its diminutive and
magnetic conductor, Serge Jaroff.
Pitts Sanborn's comment was
typical of the notices: "The Don
Cossack Chorus, thirty-six sturdy
horsemen out of Muscovy, after
having toured prodigiously in Eur-
i ope and the Antipodes, last night
swept the American field clear in
a thunderously successful program.
It is probably the most amazing
organization of male singers that
ever visited this city. Led by Serge
Jaroff, a perky and energetic little
musical hetman, these three dozen
visitors from the land of Taras
?ulba intoned sacred and secular
songs in a manner that thrilled the
audience almost to a stage of hys-
teria. The variety of tone displayed
by these singers seems to be the
special property of Russians. From
a fathomless bass to an ethereal
falsetto, the chorus was at perfect
The combined excellences of the

ventures into the field of the revue
make up the new Fall edition of
the "Garrick Gaieties" w;h i c h
comes to the Wilson Theatre, De-
troit, for a week's engagement be-
ginning Monday, Nov. 17. This edi-
tion of the Gaieties is using the
best tunes, sketches, and dance
routines from all three "Gaieties"
edithons as well as new material
with relevance to Detroit.
Albert Carrol, inimitable player
of the sedulous ape, will do his
famous imitations of Ethel Barry-
more, her equally well-known
brother John, Mrs. Minnie Mad-
dern Fiske, Lynn Fontanne and
others. Ruth Tester is returning to
the show and will be heard in the
song hit "Sing Something Simple."
Philip Loeb is giving his now fam-
ous lawyer-at-home sketch. Then
there is the magnificent burlesque
of the trite musical comedies one
sees, called "Rose of Arizona."
The "Gaities" is characteristical-
ly striving to avoid the glaring
absurdities of the American Lee
Schubert Tradition in musical
comedy for the more intimate, less
pretentious, less elegant English
revue. It aims to poke intelligent
fun at topics rather than to ex-
ploit the universal, and universally
loved and despised, sentiments. The
prize for a Detroit sketch offered
by the Guild has been given to Don
Lockbiller, of the staff of the De-
troit News. His sketch is called
"The Old Gray Mayors."
The gracicus Ethel, actress of
fine gowns and mistress of high
comedy. now plays the role of Si
Maye, Negress heroine of Julia
Peterkin's novel "Scarlet Sister
Mary" which in Daniel Reed's
dramatization comes to the Cass
Theatre Monday night for a week's
engament, Miss Barrymore's exten-
sion of her notably varied list of
parts to that of a Negress has cre-
ated comment in all worlds and
levels. Certain criticisms from the
press inspired her periodic display
of temper and curl of the lip at
critics in general. The play, how-
ever, which is also the occasion for
the debut of the ninth-generation
daughter Ethel Barrymore Colt, is
playing all over the Middle West to
capacity houses; and has, as yet,
refused to go to New York.
Mrs. Peterkin's novel, of course,
won the Pulitzer Prize in 1923. She
writes only about the Gullah ne-

groes who lived on her husband's
plantation in South Carolina,-

To the Editor:
I note that the bright
green placards announcing Mr. G.

the speaker's name: "England's
Supreme Literary Genius." Without
questioning the high character and
marked versatility of Mr. Chester-
