MICHIGAN IN THE OLYMPICS
Michigan does not confine her
ory to any one locality but extends
r fame to all parts of the world
rough her athletes, who may be'
unted amdng the country's -best.
etz, Jones, Tolan, and Campbell won
e right to compete in thei finals of
e Olympic trials to be held at the
arvard Stadium next Saturday by
acing ,as leading contenders in their
ents.
Donahoe, George, Hewitt,aWatson,
uer and Kumitura will compete in
e Olympic wrestling trials in Grand
apids, representing Michigan in that
ort. Hubbard, the sensation of the
chigan track team of a few years
o, is favored to win the broad
mp for the United States this year
ter having' won it in the games of
24, and Paul Samson has already
en chosen on the American -swim-

vantage as he takes over the presi-
dential office. This advantage lies in
the fact that he follows in office an
executive to whom he is closely allied
and with whom he has enjoyed the
friendliest relations during the past
administration. With the efforts of
Calles in behalf of the establishment
of a strong central government in
Mexico combined with the abilities of
Obregon in this direction, Mexico's
central government ought to be a
strong national unit at the close of the!
latter's six year term in office.
Another aspect of the election which
is commendable is the fearless way in
which General Obregon made his
views known to the electorate of Mex-
ico during the course of his campaign
for the presidency., Although oppos-
ing political units that had intended to
oppose Obregon withdrew their candi-
date from the field, the lone candidate
continued to discuss his views and pol-
icies so that the voters might know
how he regarded certain prominent is-
sues involved in the election.
Four months ago Obregon took a
definite stand in favor of temperance
and vigorously opposed gambling. He
expressed a friendly view toward
eign capital and denounced Ia foreig
policy that has conquest as the end
in view. Freedom of conscience is
also urged. He says "the Roman Cath-
olic, the evangelist and persons of ev
ery sect and oplnlon are equa'
spectable." He does not favor the re-
striction of Mexican immigration by
the United States. He supports th
establishment of a merchant marine,
and advocates the building of goo'
roads and the, development of irriga-
tion projects.C
Although General Obregon's admin-
istration looks promising and his qual-
ifications for the office are of the high-
est order, the splenidid conduct in of-
fice of the present executive, President
Calles, should not be referred to pas-
sively, for Mr.'Calles has had the in-
terests of Mexico sit heart and he has
contributed much toward the econom-
ic, social and political development of
his country. Credit is especially due
him for his effort in bringing about
friendly relations between Mexico and
the United States,.
(PUBLIC UTJJJTY PROBLEMS
There is continujal agitation in the
legislatures, both national and state,
regarding! the public utilities. A com-
paratively significant development in
this connection was the defeat of Sen-
ator Walsh's propos1 for a Senate in-
quiry into public uitilities during the
last Congressional session. Various
reasons have been aissigned for its de-
feat-the work in, the lobby, the fact
that this is a campaign year, and an
idea that there had been too great a
number of far reaching inquiries con-
ducted of late.

Music And Drama
"SO THIS IS LONDON"
A Review,
By Lawrence R. Klein
'So This Is London" first opened
a~s long ago as when "Waltz Me
Around Again, Willie" was in vogue.
But despite the handicap of present-
ing a show replete with wheezes fresh
during Roosevelt's first administra-
tion, the Rockford Players did a fine
thing of their play last night. The
farce comedy itself--which is about' as
good a comedy as George M. Cohan -
ever wrote, though it at times lapses Jl
into the. Mack Sennett type of hum-
or-furnishes abundant opportunity
for the portrayal of excellent char-
acter parts. And this, coupled with
the rather pointworthy fact that the
story, after all, was raher. well-done,
and this assimilation, coupled with
the even more pointworthy fact that
the actiig was, with but an .exception
here and there, splendid, all goes to
make up al pleasant evening's enter-
tainment.
The plot deals with an American
boy and an English girl who fall in
(love and wish to marry; and in or-
der to accomplish this feat they must
first soothe the ruffled feathers of pa-
rental wrath, for each parent-father, _
I should say--holds desperate and ve- "!1
nemous hate for the other.
Katherine Wick Kelly, who 'assum;
ed the role of Lady Ducksworth, in-
terlocutor for the two love birds,
would, I firmly believe, do credit to
any stage. Her sparkling, vigorous
personality and her pleasing, catchy
stage tricks stamp her as - well,
she's a finished actress.
Robert Henderson has about him
a smoothness and an assuredness that
will some day make him a first run
star. In his part of Junior Draper,
the American sbn, be caught the ef-
fervescent freshness that the charac-
ter demanded.
E. Martin Brown, the English fath-
er, is the third of the cast worthy of'
special mention. Except for the one
instance when he momentarily slipped
out of his role he maintained through-
out the stiff, aristocratic dignity of
the staid Englishman and ruler of his
household.
Roman Bohnen failed to "click" in
his attempt to act the American fath-
er. He was decidedly miscast, for one
thing, and -for another,4he talked in an
incessant monotone.dHe is far too
young to act the aged parent.
Elberta Trowbridge, who had a ra-
ther poor part in enacting the Eng-
lish mother, made a rather weak and
ennervating job of it.

A federal inviestigation might be
' practical if the much talked of "super
power" system were in existence, but
when it is reyealed by an investigation
conducted by Harvard university, that
only nine per cent of the total power
generated' is, transmitted across state
lines, the rest being used within the
state wberie it is generated, public
utilities can hardly be considered of
national .scope because of interstate
commerce regulations.
The public utilities are furnishing
electrical energy and gas at a reason-
able rates and render a great service
to the pgblic. Holding companies
which are; sometines the subject of
much criticism ar6 alpost invaluable
to public utilities as they serve to
financiaW y stabilize) the smaller units.
Another phase whi ch bears the brunt,
of some attack is the fact that public
utilities can afford to sell en rgy at
a lower rate to larjge consume s than
to smagler users. This may be ex-
plained by the factt it costs more to
distribirte a given amount of current
among 'small users than it does to sell
that sw~rne amount 'directly to the con-,
sumers from the trtnsmission line.
The stving comes as tOhe result of the
very small amount oft distribution
equipment needed to selt ,to large con-
sumers.
Whether sold to largel or small us-
ers. most of the energy generated and
most of the gas manufactured is sold
within a comparatively s mall area sur-.
rounding the generating plant, and the
problems which arise frt *m distribution
are largely of local iml portance. For
that reason, the major p tortion of reg-
ulation should be left t 6 the state in
order that local needs majy have the
benefit of special attengioat and regu-
lation.

"THE SCARLET WOMAN"
A Review, by Stratton Buck
A capable and well balanced cast,
a clever comedy of the lighter type,
and same splendid acting by Pauline
Frederick make i"The Scarlet Wom-
an," now in its eighth and final week
at the Garrick in Detroit very good
entertainment. Agatha Marley, who
has spent her youth nursing a sick
father, goes to New York after his
death, and returns to the home town
a year later with an adqpted baby.
Of course stories begin to circulate, as
stories will. And Agatha, much amus-
ed by her newly acquired notoriety,
refuses to produce the receipt from
the orphanage, and lets the gossips
go on unhampered. Andrew Mason, a
college professor, appears on the
scene to write the late Prof. Marley's
life, falls in love' with Agatha, and
is willing to trust and believe in her,
in spite of all the horrid things tha
are being whispered around the town.
There are several anxious moments,'
however, when the professor is ar-
rested for speeding and fails to turn.
up at the Marley residence to prove.
his faith and claim his bride. The
lines of the piece are clever through-
out.
Pauline Frederick makes a very
charming and satisfying Agatha Mar-
ley. She is in possession of a number
of little tricks, the rumpling of her
handkerchief in the third actfor ex-
ample, that give her work an easyf
aind finished touch. Her much adver-
tised voice is musical indeed, an is
employed to full advantage. Comed-
ienne par excellence, she shows her-
self fully capable of making an aud-
ience alternately laugh and suffer with
her.
The supporting cast is generally
good. Thomas Holding, who plays op-
posite Miss Frederick a' Andrew Ma-
son, and Paul Nicholson, interpreting
the role of the big time New Yorker,
Rex Buckingham, deserve special
mention among the men. Zelda Sears,
co-author of the piece, makes a most
convincing Hattie, The role of Felix'
Crane as played by Norman Peck is
not so 'satisfying.
