T HE INTERFRATERNITY Steward',
Association at Cornell Universit3
has concluded its first year of operation, having
accomplished, according to the Cornell Daily Sun
a gross saving of six and a quarter per cent for
the houses which were members of the organiza-
Considerable doubt was felt in the beginning as
to the possibility of success on the part of the co-
operative buying association in achieving econ-
omies, and only 23 fraternities, about one-third of
the total number, joined. Despite this unfavorable
start, the group enjoyed a successful year and is
now considered rather firmly established for the
The association handled during the year approx-
imately $100,000 in business, and turned back at
the end a five per cent rebate to each member
house, according to figures given by the Sun. These
rebates were obtained despite the fact that whole-
sale food prices in Ithaca were at a high level and
rose markedly during the year, and they were pos-
sible only through organization and large-scale
What has been done by a few Cornell fraternities
in a single year it seems might be accomplished
equally well in Ann Arbor, especially in view of the
marked similarity of conditions in the two cases.

WASHINGTON- Madame Simopoulos, wife of
the minister from Greece, has good reason to
believe friendships can bud and bloom more quick-
ly in New York taxicabs than anywhere else.
She no sooner had entered one recently than
the driver burst out about his Great Dane which
had just had 10 pups. Mme. Simopoulos smiled so
sweetly that the driver exploded:
"Say, I'll just give you one."
"But I'd have to, take him back to Washington
on the train," said Mme. Simopoulos.
"Oh, that's all right," said the driver, 'I'll give
you a nursing bottle and some milk."
But the pup stayed in New York.
On the deck of Representative Ross Collins of
Mississippi there is a gilt baby shoe with engaging
little bulges which make it look as if it had just
come off a pudgy little foot.
It was one of the baby shoes worn by Collins'
daughter who is now a young lady. He had it
stiffened with gilt.
NEWTON D. BAKER, former secretary of war,
has been here for some of Washington's ex-
tremely changeable spring weather. He says it re-
minds him of the little boy who wanted a rifle.
"Santa Claus finally brought him one,"
Baker recounts. "After that the boy's diary
read like this: 'Christmas day - got rifle. Dec.
26 - rained. Dec. 27 - snowed. Dec. 28 - too
sleety to go out. Dec. 29 - shot Grandma!'"
Life is so exciting for Mrs. Henry T. Rainey,
wife of the speaker, that she has been wearing
someone else's coat for the past two weeks without
knowing it. Now she wonders, where she got it,
and who has hers.

BESTS AND WORSTS IN
A SEASON OF LOCAL DRAMA
By JOHN W. PRITCHARD
THE WORD "LOCAL" in the above title desig-
nates Detroit and Ann Arbor. Ypsilanti is
omitted for various reasons, chief of which is the
fact that I have not seen any Ypsi shows this year.
Also I have had the pleasure of seeing only 50 per
cent of the Detroit shows; but, in consideration of
the fact that I have read no notices tending to
establish any presentations as better or worse than
those which I am noting, I feel justified in includ-
ing Detroit in this rating. And, finally, two Dra-
matic Season plays are yet to be judged. You can
see readily that the value of this score card is
reduced by considerably more than I could wish
you to believe.
My ratings, then, are as follows:
Scripts: Best dramas: Elizabeth the Queen
(Maxwell Anderson) and "Hedda Gabler" (Hen-
drik Ibsen). Best comedy: "Once in a Lifetime"
Kaufman-Hart). Best musical: "Meet My Sister"
(Verneuil-Benatsky). Worst play: "The Dark
Productions: Best dramas: "Elizabeth the
Queen" (Play Production, directed by Valentine B.
Windt) and "Hedda Gabler" (Eva Le Gallienne)
Best comedy: "Once in a Lifetime" (Play Produc-
tion, Russell McCracken). Best musical: "Gang's
All There" (Junior Girls' Play, Russell McCracken).
Worst production: "With Banners Flying" (Union
Opera, Milton Peterson).
Amateur performances: Best drama: Sarah
Pierce as Elizabeth in "Elizabeth the Queen." Best
comedy lead: Frank Funk as Topaze in "Topaze."
Best serious character: William Halstead as St.
Claire in "Uncle Tom's Cabin." Best comic charac-
ters: William Cutting as Herman Haufenmisst in
"With Banners Flying," and James V. Doll as the
prince in "See Naples and Die." There were, in
this category, no players bad enough, by amateur
standards, to be singled out as "worst."
Professional performances: Best drama: Eva Le
Gallienne as Hedda in "Hedda Gabler." Best com-
edy lead: Walter Slezak as Eric in "Meet My
Sister." Best serious character: R. Iden Payne as
a derelict cabbie in "The Pigeon." Best comic char-
acter: Olive Olsen as Irma in "Meet My Sister."
Most misconceived performance: Ainsworth Arnold
as Don Pedro in "Much Ado About Nothing."
High consistency ratings: Direction: Russell Mc-
Cracken for his excellent work in farce comedy.
Performances: Robert Henderson for five beauti-
fully played roles; Ainsworth Arnold for his effi-
ciency as a trouper: he will take any kind of a role
and give his best to it, making an interesting job
of it when direction and his natural limitations, will
permit him; Frank Funk for several grand inter-
Most promising player: Sarah Pierce, whose fu-
ture is great if she learns to control a voice of
Although the paragraph about to be inserted is
irrelevant, it may possibly be considered legitimate
in a swan song. I want here to apologize for certain
instances in which rapid writing has led me inad-
vertently to insert personal remarks of .a cutting
nature. My judgments, however faulty, remain my
judgments, but occasionally they have been poorly
and offensively phrased. I want also to thank the
players in campus theatre for their comprehension
that I have tried always to write impersonally, and
for their resultant cordiality to me. It has been
a grand year for Ann Arbor theatre-in many ways
one of-the most significant on record - and I have
been truly fortunate in the opportunity to study
and appreciate the fine work which. has been done
by local thespians during the past season.I

For sheer nonsense, we present direct from
English 2 examination at the University of In-
diana a list of suggested titles for themes.
These titles are supposed to inspire freshmen
to great impromptu essays. We don't know how
they will affect you, but if they are read
slowly, giving the imagination free play, they
should at least provide a few chuckles.
iversity officials should be complimented on
way they have handled the various projects
Care was taken to choose students to do tasks
hich they were particularly fitted. These stu-
benefitted not only from the financial aid re-
d, but from doing work they enjoyed and from
lose faculty associations 'they made.
culty men doing research work say that with-
he FERA students helping them, they could
nave gone nearly so far in such lines of en;
ar as they did. Those assisting in the State-
planning project have amply repaid their
nment. If the use of our resources is to be
ied in the future, much has been accomplished
could not have been done without FERA help.

d greatly, saving professors from bothersome
s to be hoped that national recovery will pro-
far enough so that the FERA will not be
ed in the fall. Federal agencies of this type are
ictly emergency experiments. If students are
to continue their education without govern-
subsidies so much the better. However, .it is
probable, that further aid will still be neces-
when school convenes again in September. If
tie reinstitution of the FERA in universities
olleges would be most beneficial.

NO MORE AMERICAN ARMS
IN THE CHACO
If any more American-made munitions are sold
in this country to Bolivia or Paraguay for use in
their war over Gran Chaco, it will be in violation
of a law of the United States, and the offender will
be subject to imprisonment for two years arfd a
fine of $10,000. Thanks to the order of President
Roosevelt, in accordance with the authority grant-
ed him by Congress, that bloodiest of traffics is
now outlawed in so far as it affects the United
States and these two South American states.
To appreciate the historical importance of this
humane step, one has only to recall how difficult it
has been in the past to get even a hearing for such
proposals. The armaments lobby has wielded its
powerful influence and, with specialists in interna-
tional law divided as to the propriety of an arms
embargo, workers for peace have hitherto known
only delay and defeat. Indeed, in the present case,
it was held by administration advisers that an out-
right embargo on munitions would run counter to
treaties providing unmolested movement of ex-
ports by the United States and the countries at
war. Thus, the ban was so phrased as to prohibit
sales in this country.
No one needs to be told that the stand of the
United States has its weaknesses. But whatever the

Caption under a picture of an American foot-
ball game in a German newspaper:
"A rough fight scene from the American foot-
ball, which makes understandable the high acci-
dent rate in this sport. The captain of the unbeaten
team of Oregon has jumped on the shoulders of
fellow players to catch a long distance shot from
the opposing team. Football differs from the Ger-
man "Fussball" not only by its rules, but especially
by its wild methods.
