of geographical phenomena separate-
ly, and analyzes all the vast varieties
of landforms, plants, animals, and
human communities in regard to their
mutual arrangement on the earth.
The preface of the book outlines
this basic viewpoint:
"The face of the earth itself is made
up of a mosaic of spaces, each space
being composed of a complex of ele-
ments grouped together in intricate
and intimate relationship. In detail
these spaces are what we call 'land-
scapes'; in a broader way, they are
regions' in which more general com-
binations of phenomena may be ob-
served. The face of the earth can be
made the subject of description,
classification and interpretation. This
we maintain to be the general field
of geography."
Commenting on the book and its
new point of view on the study of
geography, Prof. Stanley Dodge of
the geography department states:
"Few books have been written un-
der the new scheme; indeed, very lit-
tle work has been done at all. This
present beginning of a rational or-
dering of the data of geography de-
serves, I think, the careful considera-
tion of those who are looking for a
way through the maze of geographi-
cal facts."
At last a murder mystery with some
originality in it! "Ladies Love
Danger" does not have a haunted
house as its setting. And even though
it does take place in New York, there
is not a sign of a gangster. Instead
of the commonplace incidents and
customary blah that one associates
with the detection of a movie mur-
der, there is a delightfully coquetish
heroine (Mona Barrie), who sprinkles
the picture with humor and person-
ality and helps, as well as hinders, the
hero, who is, of all things, a play-
wright (Gilbert Roland). "Ladies
Love Danger" is no wonder picture
by a long shot, but it is an amusing,
entertaining relief from the usual run
of murder mysteries. There is no
end of melodrama, but it is pretty
well sugar-coated and not hard to
take at all.
"It Happened in New York" would
be much better in the cutting room
than on the screen in spite of its few
passable scenes. It is the story of a
movie star (Gertrude Michael) look-
ing for a vacation in Europe. Before
she sails, however, she is supposed to
show up for a premiere of her latest
picture. She is to be escorted by a
hired prince (for publicity), but in-
stead develops a desire for a taxi
driver (Lyle Talbot) in whose cab
she left her Pekinese. The cab driver
has a jealous girl friend (Heather
Angel), and the movie star loses a
$100,000 diamond which is stolen by
accomplices of the prince. This situa-
tion finally irons itself out, and if
you are interested in seeing every-
one in the cast overact it badly, it's
your hour to waste. Remember, you
were warned.

but perhaps most of all, there is the
chorus which forms the central and
abiding spirit of the festival and
which is the true creator of the festi-
val spirit.
After hearing the program last eve-
ning we might seriously ask whether
it is necessary to sacrifice the unity
of a program in the cause of festival
variety. The whole was episodic.
When it was over we felt that many
1 things had happened, but that it was
not, in its totality, satisfactory.
The program got underway with
the second Leonore Overture, a work
which in itself is quite satisfying.
Inspection By
U. S. Officers
To End Today
War Department Review
Of Whole Regiment Will
Be Held At 5 P.M.
The annual War Department in-
spection of the University R.O.T.C.'
will culminate today in a review and
inspection of the entire regiment to
be held at 5 p.m. on Ferry Field.
Major James A. Stevens, command-
ant of Infantry at the R.O.T.C. last
summer, accompanied by Capt. Ken-
neth C. Stice of the Signal Corps,
will make the inspection of the regi-
ment. The unit will be at full
strength including the Varsity-R.O.
T.C. band. More than 600 men make
up the personnel of the 12 companies.
Following the regimental parade
the senior members of the unit are
to be guests of honor at a banquet giv-
en by the Ann Arbor Army and Navy
Club. Invitations to this banquet
have also been issued to members of
the headquarters staff of the Mich-
igan Reserve District at Detroit, the
President of the Michigan Reserve
Officers Association, the commanding
officers of the various reserve units
to which the graduating class will be
assigned and ranking officers of the
army, according to Dr. Carleton B.
Pierce of the medical school, captain
in the Medical Reserve and president
of the local Army and Navy Club.
Officers of the University R.O.T.C.
and members of the department of
military science and tactics will also
entertain the inspecting officers and
invited guests at a special luncheon
today at the Michigan Union. The
representatives of the War Depart-
ment will be on the campus, inspect-
ing all classes of the military depart-
ment, until Friday noon.
Myers Leaves For
New York Meeting
Prof. George E. Myers of the edu-
cational school will leave today for
New York City where he will attend
a meeting of the American Council
of Guidance and Personnel Associa-
Professor Myers is one of three rep-
resentatives of the National Vocation-
al Guidance Association on the Coun-
cil, the other two being professors
from Harvard and Columbia.

However, there was something incon-
gruous in being thrown from such an;
Overture as this into the Aria from
Pagliacci which Miss Jepson sang.
Of the Sowerby we may say thatj
it was the musical equivalent to dull,,
endless stretches of prairie. Miss Jep-
son, who followed with the Massinet
Aria "Pleurez, mes yeux" from "Le
Cid," did something to relieve this
general flatness.
The high point of the evening was
reached in Hanson's, songs from
"Drum Taps." In it one senses an ap-
proach to a distinctively American
music. The work frequently struck
In "By the Bivouac's Fitful Flame,"
Mark Bills, student in the school of}
music did some very sensitive and
beautiful solo work:
Miss Jepson closed the program
with two Arias from Puccini. She
is possessed of a clear and easily
flowing soprano voice which delight-
ed her listeners and obvious personal
gifts which add to the attraction of
her music. She was called back for
repeated encores.
To look forward for a moment -
two of the greatest works of the festi-
val are still before us, the "King Dav-
id," of Honegger; and the Boris God-
unoff" of Moussorgsky. These mark
the festival as a preeminently choral
event. Dr. Moore has conducted the
choral union in both before, but they
are works of such stature that one
hearing creates anticipation of an-
other. We look forward to one of
the greatest choral seasons of festi-'
val history. -Marian Lundquist.
