MME. SZE, wife of the minister from China,
has quieted the consternation in the White
House kitchens. They ran out of Ning Chow Kongo
- and that is a scented tea which is a great
favorite with the President.
"It's so hard to find," confided Mrs. Roosevelt to
Mme. Sze.
The next day Mme. Sze did some vigorous
shopping. And there arrived at the White House

track-inded philatelists. Hattie Bell Ross, as
Mrs. Drennan, an aged and enthusiastically help-
less piece of garrulousness, indicated for the sec-
ond time this season that she has a high degree
of appreciation for this type of comedy; she has
the unenviable task of supporting the bulk of
Act I with a long dissertation on funerals, wherein
her amusing use of change-of-pace is decidedly
agreeable., William Halstead, as Christopher Pe-
gum, the lover of Daisy, moves through the play
in likeable intellectual clumsiness, which is cor-
rect; but the violence of his sudden understand-
ing and conversion to Daisy's point of view is a
bit hard to swallow.
The squeaky voice of Goddard Light, as Jonty
Drennan, the diminutive mystic, could not over-
come the poor impression conveyed by over-
playing; his virginal binge in the final act capped
three acts of mediocre work. Lucille Anderson
and Elizabeth Griffith as the sisters Pegum were
bothersome. The remainder of the cast was far
better than adequate.

The small twin sons of Senator and Mrs. Ben-

"we've just been to see a statute of an angel."
"Angel nothihg," said the other. "He means the
statue of J.= Ham Lincoln."

To The Editor:
In .The Daily yesterday a student who signed
himself "War Resister" reported a conversation
that took place between Bobby and his mother.
Bobby was in a thoughtful mood on this occasion,
but believe me, Bobby is not always like that.
I know, for I live next door to Bobby. Much of
his time he spends maneuvering up and down
the length of the lawn, dressed in his trim sol-
dier's uniform and looking for all the world like
one of our own fine, courageous R.O.T.C. men.
He asks his mother again and again if she will
let him join the R.O.T.C. The other day he and a
couple of neighbor boys were going through the
paces of a real siege-attack. Why, honest, it
made the shivers run up - or was it down - up
my spine to see their fierce and noble valor! I
thought to myself, "By thunder, there's no rea-
son why we Americans should feel uneasy for the
safety of our country when we have such brave
young soldiers as that coming on."
No, Mr. War Resister, it was only in a thought-
ful mood that you found Bobby, and you can't
go much on that. Everyone has them once in a
while. When Bobby is truly himself you find
him expressing his real animal instincts of bra-
very, patriotism, self-defense, manliness and dar-
ing, those qualities with which God has endowed
him --and remember that God does all things
Before I end this communication, let me speak
of something which has been on my heart for
a long time. So many students, when they come
to the University where critical thought on many
things goes on, lose their native-born pugnacity
and love of country. Of course it is natural that
we should change our minds on most matters as
we grow up. But it is an awfully serious mistake
to allow critical thinking to disturb the instinct
of strong, valorous love of one's country. It is
most undiscriminating to allow thinking to upset
such fundamentally necessary instincts as pa-
triotism or belief in "my country right or wrong."
Why, thei greatest men who have ever lived, really
lived, you know -- Alexander, Frederick the Sec-
ond, Bismarck, Napoleon, Mussolini - were pa-
triots. No, fellow-students, let us all remember
how Bobby acts when he is in his own natural
role, and let us strive to keep our R.O.T.C. en-
thusiasm and patriotism alive and strong.

S TRIKING witness of the wisdom
with which the Undergraduate
>11 was organized is evidenced in its categoriza-
on, dividing voters according to class; school, and
x. This makes it possible to say not only that
te total vote was four to one in favor of 1:30
rmission for women on Saturday night and
free to one for 11:30 permission on Sunday
ght, but also that the womenthemselves favor
ese changes, by a three to one majority in
ise of the first, and five to two in the case of
e second.
It was to be expected, when it was found that
.e campus as a whole opposed the present wo-
en's hours, that the argument would be brought
rward that the women themselves were not op-
sed. The foresight of those who organized the
)ll has made this contention impossible. For
e vote shows that the women themselves, as
ell as the campus as a whole, are by a sub-
antial majority in favor of an extra hour on
th Saturday and Sunday nights.
One of the chief arguments heard against 1:30
turday permission is that it is against the re-
;ious scruples of some persons to extend their
creation into the Sabbath. This argument is
ry fragile. One-thirty as a closing hour would
At force anyone to stay out that late who didn't

et dancing is against the religion of some. Those
lose religions forbid dancing need not dance;
ose whose religions forbid Sunday recreation
>uld not need to indulge merely because per-
ission to indulge were available.
Against 11:30 Sunday permission it is ad-
nced that a full night's sleep is needed in
eparation for Monday's classes. It would be
teresting to know the percentage of co-eds who,
turning to their residence at 10:30 on Sunday,
immediately to bed. We are inclined to believe
at most of them stay up until 11:30 now, and
nce would not be effected, as far as sleep is
ncerned, by latening the Sunday night closing
It is a hopeful sign that the desired changes

the Board of Representatives. This body,
iich is composed entirely of co-eds, has the
wer to start the machinery that can bring about
e changes. . Since the group, as its name im-
es, represents campus co-eds, and since campus
-eds have already clearly expressed themselves,
eir action Tuesday should be easy to predict.

The Theatre.
Seizing happily upon a Lennox Robinson ve-
hicle which combines-good story construction with
opportunity for individual acting, Play Produc-
tion last night presented the best piece of stu-
dent drama since the success of "Hedda Gabler"
last year. No portion of the production was
slighted, and the acting, directing, and technical
work combined to extract from the play all the
details of mingled comedy and psychological dra-
ma that the author was so careful to write in it.
This reviewer (who should know better than to
gloat) predicted on the occasion of Play Pro-
duction's 1933 debut that a tasty modern vehicle
would bring more applause to the work of the
organization than a more dusty opus could hope
for; the lengthy and well-merited demonstration
by the audience at the final curtain foreshadowed
happy days for Mr. Windt's company this season.
Mr. Robinson was evidently at some pains, in
the writing of his play, to steer clear of startling
transitions from necessary comedy to the heavy-
ish dramatic content of his theme. The mirthful
doings immediately following the opening curtain
are rather far from any suggestion of the prob-
lem that is later to manifest itsel-f, but the author
succeeds in dropping accumulative hints as to
Daisy's eventual rebellion from her drudgery, un-
til Daisy's cry of blended desire and anguish at
the act's close is willingly accepted, despite the
suddenness of its stirring quality. Her difficulty
in bringing herself to take love with an added
onus of a household existence is skillfully built up
until the climax in the last moments of the play,
when both she and her lover are forced to make
a decision in the few remaining minutes before
train time. The use of bells, heard only by Daisy,
as a symbol of all the romance that her life
has missed is employed with sufficient promi-
nence to leave no hazy impression in the minds
of the audience, and yet the device is not reiter-
ated to the point of annoying artificiality. And
the exceedingly funny comedy does not obscure
the essential tawdryness of Daisy's background.
Mary Pray, as Daisy Drennan, reaches the high
spot of her campus dramatic career, which is a
