Morris Sheppard to block a vote on the subject
of whether or not the Blaine repealer should be
Senator Morris chose the dullest reading imag-
inable in his attempt to bully the Senate out of
voting on the subject of repeal. He read for eight
solid hours the years-old minutes of League of
Nations meetings.
Finally, he allowed the Senate to vote on
whether they would take up the subject but prom-
ised that, when this question came up for a final
vote, he would start is filibustering again and
would be aided by Sen. Smith W. Bookhard.
The Blaine repealer would undoubtedly pass the
Senate if Senators Brookhard and Sheppard
would allow a vote and there is no doubt that in
the attempt of a filibuster the cloture rule of the
Senate will be invoked.
However, this would result in the loss of a great
deal of valuable time-and there are only two
weeks left for the Senate.
So, the threat of the filibuster will again un-
doubtedly keep the upper house of the United
States from expressing the will of the people. But,
luckily, it's the last time.

"Madame Butterfly" is essentially "Son Daugh-
ter," with the action shifted" from the mainland
to the sun-kissed isle of cherry blossoms, rising
suns, mikados, kimonos, etc. This time the tong
wars and bloody intrigues of Helen Hayes' pic-
ture are traded for an illegitimate son theme, with
a handsome United States navy lieutenant and a
Japanese girl as the central characters.
Originally a David Belasco play, "Madame But-
terfly" holds possible interest for an audience of
days gone by-but not today. There are many
situations in this work calculated to be quiquant!
examples of a more primitive culture, such as
Cho-Cho-San's naive statement "Won't he be
surprised when he sees my little boy!" Yes, thinks
the audience, dourly. Won't he be surprised ! In.
simpler words, "Madame Butterfly" induces an.
ice-manish train of thought in the minds of mod-
ern movie-goers; whether this means we just
aren't on a high enough plane or not is a question.
When in the springtime immediately following
Pinkerton's departure for the states, Cho-Cho-
San is seen with a 50 per cent Japanese child
in her arms, there is a good round minute-and-a-
half of sly chuckles. Add to that a wobbly plot
and slow action and there you are.

- the war against decay
To conquer the forces of decay which attack
telephone poles, scientists of Bell Telephone Lab-
oratories carry on a relentless campaign.
They study many kinds of wood, test many
preservatives. They isolate wood destroying fungi
and insects--study'them in the laboratory-search
for a practical means of combating their attack.
They have set out armies of stub poles in Mis-
sissippi, Colorado and New Jersey where altitude,
climate and soil vary widely. At regular intervals
they inspect these poles to learn which woods and
preservatives are best.
Such scientific thoroughness is one reason why
Bell System plant becomes more efficient each year.
And why telephone service is so dependable.

An Appreciation by Stark Young
Editor's Note: Mr. Stark Young, the distinguished
New York critic, is on the staff of The New Republic.
He is an ardent admirer of the American dancer,
Martha Graham. who is being presented by Robert
Henderson in a dance recital Sunday afternoon,
February ,26, at the Bonstelle Civic Theatre. The
"Primitive Mysteries" cycle, of which Mr. Young
writes, is to be included in Miss Graham's Detroit
Miss Martha Graham began the current dance
eason in New York with a packed theatre and
great applause. Some new compositions appeared,
ollowing her Mexican sojourn this summer as re-
ipientof the Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship;
and among others repeated was the astonishing
Primitive Mysteries" cycle, the dance in three
arts, in which the votary, the priestess, the god-
dess' holy one, or whatever you choose to call Miss
Graham's strange white figure, goes through
orm after form and meaning after meaning in
h marvelous compositions of the Mexican Indian
Of this extraordinary composition I can say
hat it is one of the few things I have ever seen
n dancing where the idea, the origin, the source
rom which it grew, the development of its ex-
citement and sanctity, give me a sense of baffled
awe and overwhelming beauty, the sense of won-
der and defeat in its beautiful presence.
By this I mean to imply a contrast with such a
ine dance, for example, as Pavlowa and Nijinsky
n a bacchanal. Beautiful as that may have been,
one could easily see how the idea might come
rom a concrete object-a vase painting or a bas-
relief. But Miss Graham's dance comes from a far
greater wonder. It gives one a feeling of an unim-
aginable origin and concentration. It is beyond
ife, pregnant with an almost supernatural mys-
tery and beauty.

It always takes me unawares,
This sudden change in such affairs;
At present I'll admit that I'm considerably
I'd hardly felt the seasons change,
But even though it's somewhat strange
The call of Spring is not to be refused.
And so I'll junk my woolens red
And switch to B. V. D.'s instead;
I'll even shoot the works and put my overshoes
I guess I'll wait a little, though;
I hate to plow through all this snow
In all my custom tailored Spring array.
