deals with the conflict between a brilliant young
actress and a brilliant old one.
Mrs. MacDonald (astute theatre-goers detect
just a hint of a resemblance to Mrs. Pat Camp-
bell), representing the splendid past of the thea-
tre, attends a party following the opening night
of the latest idol, Miranda Clayfoot }(Why don't
you read the New York papers?). Complications
Miranda is interested in recovering a former
lover from his young wife. She coos, pleads, weeps,
threatens to take to dope.
All sorts of interesting people attend the party.
Irene Bordoni is one of them (the part, through
deft casting, is played by Irene Bordoni). Mlle.

A Great Line
HE retirement this week of Fr.
T William F. Gagnieur, last of the
French Jesuit missionaries in Michigan, at once
removed a colorful character and ended a glorious
For 35 years, Fr. Gagnieur traveled through the
wilderness of northern Michigan carrying the
message of Christianity to the Indians. He earned
their love and undying gratitude. When he came
on his regular visits to their log cabins or to
schoolhouses in the various sections of the upper
peninsula, the Indians came on foot or with what
rude means of transportation they had to attend
the services which he conducted and to hear him
speak to them in their own language. He suf-
fered many hardships such as are the lot of the
missionary. The bitter cold and severe storms
of the northern area did not keep him from his
task. In the midst of a sophisticated and fast-
moving age, when the simple things of life have
been much neglected, it was refreshing for the
wandering tourist to see this humble priest car-
rying on his work.
Five years ago, the University of Michigan sum
moned Fr. Gagnieur from his work, to give it
valuable information which only he could give and
which would be entirely lost with his death if
not recorded. He was the only living person who
had a knowledge of the three dialects of the
Objibway Indian language. The Indians them-
selves had, in recent years, forgotten the three
dialects, fusing them into one language. Prof.
Eric Walter of the English department brought
the priest to Ann Arbor to give recordings of this
forgotten language. These recordings are of prime
importance in the field of philology.
Michigan will bid farewell with regret to the
last of the French missionaries. They have con-
tributed much to her historical development. Even
before the arrival of the traders, the mission-
aries had penetrated the wilderness, the heralds
of white civilization. Among them was the great
Pere Marquette who wrote his name indelibly in
the annals of Michigan history.. They were brave
men, hardy men, men who h7ad the courage of
their convictions: Brebeouf, Lalement, and the
many others who died suffering just as the Mas-
ter whom they served did. And Father Gag-
nieur, the last of them, was not the least of them.

After Mlle. Bordoni, greater hilarity seems im-
possible; but Miss Anglin produces it with her
interpretation of the stately Mrs. MacDonald. It
is all there; the grand manner, the gestures, the
rich British accent. The pathos, too. Miss Anglin
does not content herself with mere caricature. She
shows the unhappy aspect of belonging to an old
tradition; the aging actress whose admirers fade
away, whose parts become scarcer. Barely a hint.

This latest 6,000 foot pseudo-epic from the
grind-out town of Hollywood is all about a family
of actors who have the old trouper gene in their
chromosomes. "From Broadway to Hollywood"
took a long time, and there isn't much to do but
thumb-twiddle while it is making the long jour-
ney from the 90's to the 30's. There is no plot.
There is no action. It is drab to the highest
degree; when it muddles about the naughty
naughts period it is even worse.
A long piece of hack-work comparable to the
one under consideration is scarcely worth any-
body's time, however, to endure the feature in
order to hear and see excellent representations in
the several short subjects of pressing contempor-
ary problems like the Roosevelt gold market de-
velopments, the U.S.-U.S.S.R. situation, and in-
Pete Smith's monologue exploration of inflation
marks something new in the movie game, showing
as it does the inner workings of a difficult eco-
nomic scheme by simple farm pictures, simple
industrial pictures, and simple charts which even
the most uninitiated in financial fields can readily
understand. In the Paramount Newsreel make-
shift flashes of leaders in the Soviet Union are
shown - Kalinin, Litvinoff, and Stalin are among
them. And on schedule as always is the NRA
short with the bands playing, flags flying, and the
deifying pictures of Roosevelt. Flip the Frog is
there, too, in a bull-fighting cartoon.
The fact still remains, though, that "From
Broadway to Hollywood" is a grim business, em-
ploying poor script, evil direction, and, long-
winded authorship. How shows like this continue
to get by will be something for another genera-
tion to investigate.

NO NICE GIRL SWEARS
By ALICE-LEONE MOATS
(Alfred A. Knopf, $2.00)
This book is not new and probably a great many
of you have read it already. To those fortunate
few it needs no recommendation. But the coed
who has not yet seen this collection of common-
sense advice for young women should certainly
waste no time in purchasing a copy to put on the
table where the Gideon Bible used to be.
The chief attraction of the book lies in the fact
that instead of preaching etiquette as a matter of
form because it has always been done that way,
it offers the young lady advice from a purely util-
itarian standpoint. Miss Moats tells you what to
do in almost any sort of situation, from attending
a house-party to handling a difficult drunk, in
the way that is easiest, most graceful, and will
make the fewest enemies. Instead of saying that
one must write a bread-and-butter note after a
house-party because it is polite, she points out
that, "Everyone knows it's an empty form, but
hostesses are touchy about it. Even your best
friend is apt to go punctilious on you. A thank-
you note will be expected even though you were
forced to spend the whole week-end shouting into
Mrs. Wordy's ear-trumpet."
A few samples will give a better idea of the
tenor of the book than could any lengthy review.
Of swearing it says, "It has been affected by
vogues, and although an occasional 'damn' passes
unnoticed, any systematic swearing on the part
of a woman comes as a shock. It is always ugly
and particularly, in moments of stress, vulgar.
People who preface every sentence with 'My God'
are worse. They're tiresome."
Typical of the attitude of the book, which is
written to meet strictly contemporaneous cond-
tions, is the chapter entitled "Our Plastered
Friends," - a subject which most etiquette writers
prefer to believe does not exist. After enumerating
the ten types of drunks which she classifies as
hilarious, lachrymose, loquacious, taciturn, argu-
mentative, magisterial, belligerent, sentimental,
and amorous, and giving instructions for dealing
with each, Miss Moats says, "When out with a
plastered friend, control your feelings and on no
account lose your temper. Let go the next day;
the angrier you get the better; but at the time
fight down any desire you may have to give him
a piece of your mind. It only leads to a scene and
makes no impression. Remain calm and try to get
him to go home, but under no circumstances let
him suspect you think he is tight. There is nothing
that will infuriate him like a just suspicion of
his condition. Agree with everything he says, as
nine times out of ten he will forget it five seconds
later. If you agree with him, you fix the idea in
his mind. If he wants to take the orchestra away
with him, be thrilled. If he develops a craving to
play the saxophone, love saxophones and don't
mention the merits of the tuba. If he takes a dis-
like to a stranger across the room and decides he
wants to punch him, agree that the man has an
ugly face, but try to shift the conversation to an-
other subject, and if the fight seems unadvoidable
leave by the nearest exit."
One more example of the priceless worth of this
advice should send the socially conscious co-ed
scurring to the nearest book store for her copy.
"Under no circumstances scrawl any of the 'For-
ever Thine' sentiments across a photograph. 'To
my darling Rollo, lest you forget,' is not only
indiscreet, but out and out wet. Whether the
picture is intended for a man or a woman, follow
the example set by royaltyrand simply sign your
name. Celebrities are the only exception to this

of Arizona was somewhat baffled when the in-
structor asked that he name and distinguish the
genders. After contemplating on the matter for
a moment he wrote on his paper: "The genders
are masculine and feminine. The feminine is di-
vided into frigid and torrid; the masculine into
temperate and intemperate."
