S TANDING ON A BATTLEFIELD
that 70 years ago was the scene of
ne of the fiercest of civil conflicts, President
oosevelt sounded the "doom of sectionalism" in
is Memorial Day talk Wednesday.
He told of the efforts of earlier Presidents to
ing about a consolidated nation, and said that
day that "great ideal" is within reach, and can
e attained by following the peaceful methods pre-
ribed under the broad and resilient provisions of
le Constitution.
To the broadening and speeding up of transpor-
.tion and communication on a national scale
tore than-any other factor is due the rapid decline
sectionalism in the United States to its present
Iconsiderable state. Before the Civil War "the
agedy of the nation was that the people did not
now each other," President Roosevelt declared.
oday the imposition of the Federal government
n that of the states is felt less strongly than that
he states are divisions of a national whole.
If the improvement of communication and trans-
:rtation has blotted out sectionalism within na-

ons, it is fast working to erase distance between
ations. Probably it is the tragedy of the world
Iday that peoples of different races do not "know"
ach other, but this is constantly becoming less
rue.
When the work of these driving forces has been
>mpleted, bringing peoples of the world more fully
ito contact' with each other and eliminating the
ar and distrust that go with ignorance, one of
he -major factors making for international con-
lict will have been done away with.

statement quoted me as saying that the Vanguard
Club had nothing to do with the day's activities.
It may interest the readers of this column to
know that I was not in this city between the hours
of ten in the morning and one at night on Me-
morial Day. I received absolutely no news of
the whole Ann Arbor affair until shortly after the
time when I returned, which was long after the
"deadline" on news for the Daily. During the time
which I was away, I can testify that I neither
saw, heard, smelled nor thought of a Daily reporter,
nor any other members of that great profession
of "news-hashers." I also can produce witnesses
who can testify to the above statement. Apparently
some clever reporter thought this statement would
make good news.
It seems to me also to be necessary to state the
actual facts in regard to the part which the Van-
.guard Club played in the anti-war activities on
Wednesday. In the first place, the Vanguard Club
has definitely gone on record in support of the
Michigan League Against War and Militarism. In
doing this, we members of the Vanguard Club
pledge our sympathy and support with any spe-
cial activities of this league. Such was the case
with the anti-war meeting on Wednesday. Sec-
ondly I wish to say that although the two indi-
viduals who were arrested were not members of
our organization, we shall take a definite stand in
support of their case.
-K. B. Wood.
NOTE: The Daily's information on this
question was received not from Kendall Wood,
but from his brother, Arthur Wood, who is also
a member of the club. The quotation said,
"the Vanguard Club did not officially par-
ticipate in any of the day's activities, and any
of its members who did were acting under the
auspices of the League Against War and
Militarism." That is right.-The Editors

C "NOW I'LL TELL, by MRS. ARNOLD 1
ROTHSTEIN"]
Murray Golden ........... Spencer Tracy
Virginia.. Helen Twelvetrees
Peggy.........................Alice Faye
Directed by...........Edwin Burke t
There isn't much to say about this latest crime
film save that there seems to be little reason why,
money should have been spent filming it. I suppose
the theatres have to be supplied twice a week. Thisj
piece is average entertainment and should, no'
doubt, give some interest to those movie patrons,
who have nothing to do, and spend their time doing
it by finding out the lurid details of yesterday's
notorious headliners. Even so, they are bound to be
a little disappointed to find that the late Arnold
Rothstein was not the clever man, or the witty
man, or even the romantic man he was reputed to
be, if one can take this film to be authentic. And1
since it has the official sanction of Mrs. Rothstein,
we must.
Rothstein, or Golden in the film is shown to be a"
childishly climbing gambler who comes by his win-
nings dishonestly, his faith in the luck that his
pretty wife brings him. Apparently that is all she
means to him as he drives her to seek a divorce by
running around with other women. The film asks us
to believe that he really did love his wife, but his
actions do not prove it. Thus is presented an in-
congruity in the film that breaks up its smoothness
and leaves the audience puzzled as to what the
character of the man really was. This is decidedly
th'e fault of the director who obviously had no clear
idea of the man himself and thus could not record
it on film.
The acting on the whole is adequate, but this
reviewer has seen the principle actors do much bet-
ter in other films. "Now I'll Tell" proves not to be
as sensational as one would expect and, while it
manages to be entertaining enough, it leads us to
the conclusion that these famous people weren't
really what they were cracked up to be. On the
bill is a Vitaphone short featuring Phil Spitalny
and orchestra which is much better than the usual
run of shorts. -J.C.S.

MARGARET KIMBALL, in spite of the heat and
impending examinatins, is giving her gradua-
tion recital tonight in the School of Music Audi-
torium. Miss Kimball is more to be admired than
blamed for picking a date so near the end of the
school year, for circumstances have been such
that it was possible she wouldn't be giving one at
all. Therefore, while you have this opportunity
to hear Miss Kimball, it is to be hoped that you
will. She has proven herself one of the outstand-
ing pianists in the department, having appeared
as soloist with the University Symphony Orchestra
and as an expert ensemlye playe. She accom-
panied Margaret Swetnam this spring in her re-
cital.
Miss Kimball's program holds works of much in-
terest for the Partita is seldom heard on a gradua-
tion recital, and Scriabin is perhaps more familiar
in name than in actual works. The whole program

"THE SHINING HOUR" - A Review
By VINCENT WALL
A domestic tragedy of very superior quality is
the fourth bill-of the current dramatic festival at
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. When Henry Lin-
den, who has apparently been serving the empire
in the dominions presents his new wife to the
very British and very country family one senses
that all is not well. It is not difficult to surmise
just what the nature of the trouble will be when
Mariella Linden is confronted by her brothers and
sisters-in-law. Yet the revelation of these charac-
ters with their conflicting idealisms is intense and
convincing drama.
I hope I shall not be considered superficial if I
dismiss the play rather summarily as a very busi-
nesslike job of work. Since the conventional domes-
tic tragedy calls for some melodrama at the second
act curtain one need not cavil mightily at the con-
ventional conflagration that takes place at this
point. Suffice it to say that the Lindens as indi-
viduals are pretty representative contemporary
Anglo-Saxons. And without exception the cast
presented them to us with rare and illuminating
assurance. It is this which makes "The Shining
Hour" a very interesting production.
It is, I suppose, manifestly unfair for a second
night critic to attend the opening performance
as well. But this is a rather little sin, since it
was accomplished with no real volition and since
it makes possible a comparative analysis of the art
of acting as displayed by several Very great artists.
Selena Royle has been known to us only as one
of the very brilliant group which forms the nucleus
of the Theatre Guild's acting company. It was only
as an emergency that she was persuaded to take
Violet Kemble-Cooper's role of Mariella. However;
her mastery of this extremely difficult part and
the manner in which she profited by the initial
performance to improve that of last night is one
of the reasons why the work of those who work
beyond the footlights is such a fascinating thing
to watch. By changing the emphasis of a single
word, by letting one scene drop slightly in order to
bring out a highlight in the next she made the
latter interpretation a far more living thing, more
vital. Mariella Linden is a woman of strange
intensity, strange rationality. The clarity of the
mind which so bewilders and fascinates her very
tweedy and beef-eating husband and his brothers
is only one of the elements which is difficult to
suggest, yet it was a quality that Miss Royle implied
with the greatest subtlety.
It would be equally worthwhile to analyze the
work of Audrey Ridgewell who so effectively real-
ized the tragic pathos in the character of Judie; to
remark of the moving performance of Rollo Peters
as the tortured, neurotic David, realizing for the
first time his insufficiency; and to especially com.
mend Edith Gresham for her skillful transitions of
mood which followed perfectly the mood of the
play. When one can only conclude with the bare
statement that Frank Compton and Richard Comp-
ton and Richard Kendrick were equally convincing,
it indicates the merit of the production,
Collegiate Observer
By BUD BERNARD
Thirteen American college girls were recently
refused admission to France. After the American
consul had pulled wires, the French authorities
finally granted them permission to enter without
the usual character vouchers. By that time the girls
were angry and refused to enter the country. Well,
girls must be fickle.

According to a senior at the University of
Wisconsin, co-eds are divided into two species:
those who shut their eyes when kissing and
those who look to see if you do.

Authorities at the University of Alabama have
passed a ruling forbidding whistling in the cam-

Here are some epigrams taken from the
diary of a freshman at the University of Illi-
nois:
"I'd rather be a heart-breaker than a law-
breaker."

"Freshmen flunk; seniors merely fail."
"All things we don't know come back to
plague us on examination."
When the Jester, comic monthly at Columbia
University, was refused permission to print a car-
toon lambasting President Nicholas Butler on his
anti-Child Labor Amendment stand, the Spectator,
the University daily, had it published on the front
page. The cartoon drawn by a student shows the
president beating children with a club. A dean at
that institution, commenting on the matter, said
the Spectator's editors showed "wretchedly bad
manners."
S.J.H.,'36, sends us this squib: "Some co-eds
pursue their studies, while others merely pur-
sue their pursuers."

We've all heard of "10 cents a dance," but at
Ohio State University it's "10 cents a date," if a
proposed plan is approved. Twenty-five cents will
secure the student registration and one date, and
10 cents will be charged for each additional
date.
