After visiting Detroit and other Great Lakes
cities, he made this not very complimentary com-
mentary: "The central business part of the
town is intolerable. The buildings are stand-
ardized to an utilitarian design and the streets
are an inferno of parked and moving motor
Besides historical plays he has also published
volumes of collected poems and plays, biog-
raphies, a book of verse for children, and an
Mr. Drinkwater followed a particular method
of writing his plays: he first read a great deal,
learning all he could about his characters and
taking extensive notes. Then, putting the notes
out of sight, he tried to write the play as quickly
as possible. He said, "I have an idea that by
doing this one ought to get behind 'a simplified
expression a great pressure from all the material
in the background."
After receiving degrees from Birmingham and
Athens Universities, the young writer found it
necessary to begin earning his living by working
in his father's insurance office, but he had little
talent and no interest for the business; he
wanted to write and to go on the stage.
At the age of 21, he published his first book
of poems. Of this book he said, "An uncle to
whom I sent the first book, with the request that
he buy it, sent a postal order for a half-a-crown,
with. the request that I should give up the writ-
ing, as one should say 'the drink.'"
In 1907, Mr. Drinkwater formed an amateur
drama. society known as the Pilgrim Players.
Six years later, the Birmingham Repertory The-
atre was built and he was able to give up his
hated business career and to devote his full
attention to the more pleasant occupation of
writing 'and producing plays.

AD YOU BEEN UP at 5 a.m. today you would
have heard the international broadcast from
Rome. Both NBC and CBS carried the pontifi-
cial thigh mass by Pope Pius from the Vatican.
Easter sunrise broadcasts were also on the air
at early hours of the day with the networks
following the sun from New York to the West
Coast,starting at 7 a.m. in New York City. The
sun evidently plays tricks once it arrives in the
Pacific sector since the sunrise broadcast from
Hollywood was scheduled for 8 a.m. and from
San Diego at 9 a.m. Ho-hum.
All the networks will carry descriptive broad-
asts of New York's Easter parade. Bob Trout
will beon Park Avenue with a microphone in his
hand over CBS at 12:30 p.m.

Howard Barlow will feature on his Music of
the Theatre program today the musical numbers
from Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Mikado." The
broadcast will include selections by six vocal solo-
ists, a mixed chorus and the orchestra under
the direction of Barlow. CBS at 2 p.m.
We feel that a short note of clarification is
desirable in connection with one of this column's
items last Sunday. In comparing Henry Busse's
rank trumpet playing with that of "the gentle-
man who played in the Union the other night,"
we were referring to the redoubtable Clyde Mc-
Coy and not to one of Steinle's men, as so.
mistakenly believed. The Union band should
feel complimented that someone protested
against even a supposed likening of its men to
the King of Corn.

NIGHT EDITOR: TUURE
'=, - -
By WILLIAM J.
*aw --By Bonth Williams ---.
MANY, MANY MOONS AGO there lived out
North Geddes two exceedingly cocky juniors
named Dick Shoupe and Lou Kearns.
Divergent interests have led them to the
medical and law schools, respectively, at the
present writing, but in that long ago they were
both united in a common understanding-that
Shoupe and Kearns were an indispensible part
of the Campus and the Michigan Union.
It was in the late fall, as I recollect. Snow was
on the ground and Christmas vacation not long
off when both of our heros announced one night
that the brothers should take no heed of some
little noise which they might hear that evening.
"Sphinx is riding," they explained, "and we
just didn't want you fellows to get excited when
they come to get us."
It was the last straw. For months on end,
with resentment welling up within them, the
brothers had listened to the self-expressed great-
ness of messieurs Shoupe and Kearns.
Came eleven o'clock and the two confident
juniors were off to bed. For an hour they lay
there, then in the distance they heard the pound-
ing of pans and muffled shouts, getting closer
"They're coming, Lou, are you all set?"
"Sure, Dick, how do you feel?"
"A little shaky, but there's nothing to worry
"No, they just make a lot of noise and dump
water all over you."
Both of them lay rigidly stretched out in bed.
The clamor increased and broke into a frightful
din as the Sphinxes rushed up the stairs with
cries of "Get Shoupe" and "Where's Kearns."
Rough hands laid hold of them in absolute
darkness. They could feel the swish of robes
as they were propelled downstairs and out on
the ice-covered lawn.
"Roll, roll, roll," the clan shouted.
"Smack, smack, smack," went the paddles as
they crashed against cold flesh. "Roll, roll, roll
... more water, smack, smack, roll, roll, another
bucket, smack, roll, roll."
Then, almost as soon, it was all over and two
limp, but happy boys returned to bed. As they
lay there Dick muttered, "Good, lord, they really
gave us a pounding, I feel like I'm broken in
And Lou replied, "Yeah, I never heard of 'em
being as tough as that, but we're in now, old man,
we're in. I knew we couldn't miss."
And they didn't know the truth until the next
morning when with supreme confidence they
walked down to breakfast and saw two old pails
and a half dozen paddles lying on top of a big
pile of chapter robes. The brothers were laughing.
AT THE MAJESTIC
THIS PICTURE proves immensely interesting
even though it seems to fail in translating
the philosophy that is back of the story. Vivid
scenes in the life of a doctor provide intense
moments, while the subtlety of the movements
of the other characters taken from the Lloyd
Douglas novel suffer from difficulty of adapta-
tion to the screen
Anita Louise in the character of Phyllis Dexter
and Sir Cedric Hardwick playing the important
role of Dean Harcourt read their parts excel-
lently but are not given the time to develop their
full meaning. Errol Flynn stands out in his por-
trayal of Dr. Paige, because the part enjoys most
of the action in the picture.
Brilliant young Doctor Paige assumes the
blame for a fatal operation on a patient and
is forced to retire from his position. Later he
meets the daughter of that patient. Separately
they have sought refuge in their trouble with
Dean Harcourt, a wise, understanding counselor.
He teaches a keenly developed philosophy of life's
fundamentals. Dr. Paige gains fortitude from
him to proceed with a career of sacrifice to the
science of medicine. Phyllis Dexter learns to
rise above the circumstances that attach the
guilt for her mother's death to the young doctor.
Both go on to put the old minister's philosophy
to happy practice.

To the Editor:
I am heartily glad to see that you are opening
your columns to protests against the silencing
of the Michigan chimes which for half a century
have been a beloved tradition on our campus-
none too rich in tradition, at best. I have heard
many expressions of regret, some sorrowful and
some caustic over this apparently uncalled for
action, and none defending it. Why not let
the bells (which after all were a memorial gift
to the University) ring out again? We miss their
friendly, cheerful sound. It is a decided incon-
venience not to have them marking off the hours,
especially as there are numerous classrooms on
the campus where the sound of the Baird bells
is nnt., a r
F JOE LOUIS deserves to be an
American hero for bowling over
a lot of pushovers, then Marian An-!
derson has the right to at least a
comparable standing. Handel, Schu-
bert, and Sibelius are not pushovers."
This interesting bit of information
(written, obviously, before t h e
Schmeling engagement of last June)
appeared in the New York Times of
Dec. 31, 1935, the morning after the
Negro contralto's Town Hall home-
coming after several years of concer-
tizing abroad. Other journals, with
less restraint than the dignified
Times, indulged in elaborate eulogies
to "a gorgeous voice," "penetrating
musicianship," and "transcending ar-
The object of their praise was born
a number of years ago in Philadel-
phia, amongst the indigent surround-
ings which seem to be traditional
with the beginnings of great artists.
Her first musical experience came
with her membership in the choir of
the neighborhood church. Her first
public acclaim came in 1925, with
her appearance as soloist with the
Philadelphia Symphony, as winner of
the competition for that privilege.
From Philadelphia she went to New
York, where she again won the hon-
or of appearing with a leading or-
chestra-this time the Philharmonic,
in its summer series of concerts at
the Lewissohn Stadium.
Then Miss Anderson, perhaps
mindful of the success achieved
abroad by another singer of her race,
Roland Hayes, decided to tackle
Europe. She first went to London,
and later to Germany and Scan-
dinavia. During the next few years
she toured constantly, with ever-
growing success. The climax of her
European tours came during the
Salzburg Festival of 1935, when she
enraptured a distinguished audience
at the Mozarteum Academie with her
singing. Her return to this country
was inaugurated by the. Town Hall
recital mentioned before, and since
that time she has been in constant
demand as a recitalist.
The program for Miss Anderson's
Ann Arbor recital, to be given tomor-
row evening at 8:15, is admirably
chosen. It commences with a Handel
group of three songs and the aria
"Ah, Spietato!" (Ah, Cruel One!")
from the opera Amadigi. Handel,
though born a German and the com-
poser', of a flock of Italian operas,
lived the greater part of his life in
London. Although his operas and
many of his other works were writ-
ten to please the meretricious tastes
of his public, there are in most of
them occasional moments, such as
the "Ah, Spietato," of lasting beauty
and effectiveness. Amadigi, inciden-
tally, was written at about the same
time as the well-known "Water-Mu-
sic" (1715), a few months after
Handel's former master in Germany
became George I of England and the
founder of the Hanoverian dynasty.
Miss Anderson's second group con-
sists of five of the best-known songs
of the greatest song writer of all
time-Franz Schubert. Even more
than Beethoven enriched and en-
nobled the symphonic form, Schu-
bert, in the short space of his 31
years, raised the song from a mere
thing of simple beauty to an art
form full of poetry, 'pathos, and dra-
matic fire. In the sheer loveliness of
his melodies, the vital importance
and aptness of his accompaniments,
and the complete and harmonious
mating, of words and tones, he has
never been surpassed.
The chief operatic excerpt of the
program is the aria "O Don Fatale"
from Verdi's Don Carlos, an opera
written just previous to Aida, in
somewhat the grand and lavish man-
ner of Meyerbeer. Following this
aria is a group of Finnish songs,
three by Jan Sibelius and one by
Kilpinen. The final group is, of
course, made up of Negro spirituals
-or, rather, of songs composed in
the style of spirituals.
A group of about 40 members of
the College of Architecture, under the
direction of Professors George B.
Brigham and Frederick C. O'Dell,
took a day's inspection tour of ar-
chitectural developments in Midland
The development of the plant of the
Dow Chemical Co., of Midland, and
domestic architectural work in that
city were studied by the group. They
were guests of Allen Dow, Well-known
Midland represents a unique situa-
tion as concerns architecture, it was
discovered. Mr. Dow, its most promi-
nent architect, is interested in mod-
ern architectural styles and does most
of his work in a modern character,
Professor Brigham said.
He is a pupil of the late Frank Lloyd
Wright, and has designed the plant

FRIENDS of Spanish Democracy in
Ann Arbor have begun in the past
two weeks a campus drive, first,to collect money
for the purchase of food and medical supplies for
Loyalist Spain, and second, to make clear to all,
the ideals of the Spanish anti-fasists and the
'importance to the world of their' victory.
Basic monthly dues of 25 cents are sent to the,
North American Committee for the Defense of
Spanish Democracy, with whom the Ann Arbor.
group is affiliated. All basic dues go to Spain.
The work of the Friends of Sp2(nish Democracy
is no violation of the American neutrality policy,
which deals, not with food and medical supplies,
but with materials of war.
The Ann Arbor group has had the assistance of
a faculty advisory committee, composed of Prof.
Paul Mueschke dad Prof. Norman E. Nelson of
the English department, Prof. William W. Sleator
of the physics department, and Prof. C. N.
Wenger of the English department of the Col-
lege of Engineering. During the first two weeks
its work has been largely among the various
faculties. Now it is ready to turn to the thou-
sands of students from whom must be derived
the real body of its support.
The greatest struggle in the world of today
is epitomized in Spain. That is the struggle 'to
maintain democracy and peace. The story of
Germany and Italy tells how essential the
former is to the latter. And peace itself is in-
divisible. A prolonged major war in the 20th
century inevitably will involve the peoples of
all continents. The defense of Spanish democ-
racy is the tremendous and imperative responj
sibility of all these peoples.
AN ENGLISHMAN who wrote his-
torical dramas about great Amer-
icans, a poet and playwright who started his ca-
reer as an insurance salesman, an acrid critic
and fond admirer of the American people-
that, in part, describes the life of John Drink-
His comparatively short but varied career as
one of the great poets and dramatists of the
century was brought to a sudden close four days
ago. Perhaps the last thing he wrote was an es-
isay, "The King's Majesty," which is included in
the souvenir Coronation program.
Mr. Drinkwater is probably best remembered
for his historical plays, Abraham Lincoln, Mary
Stuart, Oliver Cromwell and Robert E. Lee. Ab-
raham Lincoln, produced in 1918, was his first
big success; a contemporary critic has said
of this play, "It succeeded for a single rare, de-
lightful reason-it deserved success even while

The word "swing" is certainly being capital-
ized upon by every branch of the entertainment
and 'business world. As soon as two or more
musicians get together the publicity men tell us
that we have a new swing sensation. Even
waltzes have been composed in swing tempos.
Enterprising merchants have attached the label
of "swing" to every conceivable article, not stop-
ping even at wompen's slips. A new program
called "Fun in Swingtime" will hit the Mutual
coast-to-coast network April 18 and will be heard
every Sunday night after that date at 6:30 p.m.
Bunny Berigan, star trumpet man, will have his
orchestra on the program along with Tim and
Irene, comedians, and Del Sharbutt, master of

gram to the already fairly good Sunday night
