Students in the Sumner Session at
the University this year are being of-
fered &~n opportunity to see one of the
most complete and interesting natural
science exhibits in this part or the
country at the New Museum situated
at the carner of North University and
Washtenaw avenues. The building
housing the collection is one of great
architectural beauty as well as of
scientific efficiency. It is one of the
show places of the campus, although
not intended primarily for sightseers.
The planners of this project wished
first of all to furnish .a place in which
scientific 'specimens of all sorts could
be placed on view for study and ob-
servation by students in those fields.
In order to exhibit specimens prop-
'erly they have been arranged in cases
and cabinets in long "ranges." There
are ranges for botany, anthropology,
geology, and zoology, the last named
group being the alrgest. All the speci-
mens are arra'nged so that they are
fully protected from fire, dust, and
insects, but they are at the same time
in full view of the observer. There
are also large ranges for live 'speci-
miens at the museum, over fifteen hun-
dred mice, fourteen sub-species of the
deer mouse, and a large display of live
squirrels being included.
Exhibits Vary
While most of the museum is devot-
ed to study and research, there are
also two exhibit halls containing dis-
plays of 'nterest to jveryone. The ex-
'hibits here, which are varied from time

to time, are intended to show some
single field of research or race devel-
opment. The'se halls occupy the
secznul and fourth floors of the WVash-
tenaw wing of the museum.
One of the ranges contains all the
exhibits presented by the Chinese gov-
ernment, including teakwood chairs
inlaid with mother of pearl and many
tapestries and hangings. Upon the
'same floor is the Primitive Man of
Michigan collection which was as-
sembled by Dr. Wilbert B. Hinsdale.
Due to the fact that a great number
of special and graduate students are
i'n+ attendance at the University in the
summer, it is believed that many vis-
itors will be seen at the new Museum
during the session. The exhibits
should be of special interest to all stu-
dents in science course's.

Is Princeton Graduate
Profe'ssor Parrott has had a long
and distinguished academic career. A
graduate of Princeton with the class=
of '88, he received the degree of
doctor of philosophy at Leipzig in 1493,
and began teaching at Princeton in
1896. He was made a full professor
in 1902. He has edited 'several of the
plays of Shakespeare, an edition of
Pope, and the comedie's and tragedies

The aim of the teacher of English,
in the opinion of Professor Parrott,
should be to impart an appreciation of
the masterpieces of literature. The
research work expected of graduate
students is only the +foundation, he
says, and is of 'little value unless it
leads to,.a fuller ,and more accurate
perception of therbeauties of the works

A Review By Stratton Buckt e
If it is true, andi I believe that it
is, that a better play than "So This#
Is London" could be found without<
too much searching, it is equally true1
that it would be difficult to ask for
a better performance than the Rock-
ford group gave that vehicle last eve-'
ning. Much of the piece is burlesque+
rather than comedy. It is full of
the vaudeville type of wise crack for
which Cohan is famous, and many of
the cracks are by now so old as to be
at everyone's disposal. But there, is
much more favorable than unfavorable
comment to be. made about last eve-
ning's performance.
To begin with the play itself con-
tains more than a little good stuff.
It is well to do away with flag way-
ing for awhile, and see ourselves as
others see us. There is ample op-1
portunity afforded both English and
Americans to do this in "So This Is
London." "Junior" Draper, son of a
prosperous American shoe manufact-,
urer falls in love with Eleanor Beau-

champ on a transatlantic steamer. The 1
task is then to bring their two 'pa-
triotic' families to accept a foreignere
as an in-law, and in accomplishing t
this task Cohan is able to poke funt
at a whole bagfull of ridiculous prej-f
udices, American and English alike.
The show still has a lot of 'laughs,
even in its senility, and it showed,
us the abilities of the tockford troupe1
as a company much more fully thanj
did the solo erro mn ce of Miss
Kelly's last week.:
Honors for the evening must go to
E. Martin Browne, who played Sir
Percy Beauchamp, the stiff, unyield-
ing, aristocratic son of John Bull to
perfection. The awakened gestures
and lack of poise remarked in "The
Letter" were so completely gone that
one is forced to conclude that he was
miserably cast last week. His play-
ing of last night was perfectly finish-
ed, it carried real conviction, and
showed the actof capable of burlesque,
comedy and characterization alike.
The work of Marvel Garnsey and

Robert Henderson as the English and E
American sweehearts was almost
equally satisfying. There was a con-
tagious zest and enthusiasm about
their playing. Katherine Wick Kelly,
as the bas bleu Lady Ducksworth
gave the polished performance that
all who saw "The Letter" were con-
vinced she would. After seeing her
two efforts of the season one feels
justified in saying that she is th
most perfect artist that Mr. Hender-
son has yet brought to his troupe.
Paul Stevenson was excellent as
Alfred Honeycutt. Some trace of John
Withers was seen in his impersona-
tion, but no doubt he will vary his
role more im the future. Lillian Bron-
son was in every way a satisfactory
Mr's. Draper.
"So This Is London" is good enter-
tainment, and proves conclusively that
the present company is the best bal-
anced permanent troupe that Ann Ar-
bor has seen in recent years. A highly
interesting season is in store for sum-
mer playgoers..
