"CHICAGO"
A Review; by Stratton Buck
A play whose satire bites, " and
whose characters are chosen from
life; a great deal of acting that can
only be described as splendid; any
who find such entertainment to their
taste could not but be highly content
at the performance that the Rockford
Players gave Maurine Watkins' "Chi-
cago" last evening. From the open-
ing scene in which Roxie shoots her
lover while the orchestra blares the
song of the same name as the play,
until the last, where she informs the
latest murdress, "Yu gotta play ball,
kid. This is Chicago," the produc-
tion is full of enthusiasm, action and
life. The show is a good one, and
the Players more than redeem them-
selves for the dubious effort of last
week.
Maurine Watkins has accomplished a
brilliant if unpleasant piece of work in
this play. Cook County justice is treat-
ed with an irony that bites, while the
amount of veritable human nature.
that is crowded between the two cur-
tains is astounding. Roxie Hart and
Billy Flynn, Amos and Jake and the
others wall; the streets of this coun-
try every day. The play is indeed a
masterpiece.

FOR BETTER UNDERSTANDING
Arthur J. Jones, profesUor of secon
dary education at the University of
Pennsylvania, has proposed a compre
hensive cooperative study of th
school systems of England and th
United States as a means of promot
ing a better understanding betwee
the educators of the two countries
There is continually a great deal o
discussion as to the relative merits o-
the two systems, but until there ha
been a careful survey made in eaci
country, and the results of the tw(
surveys compared, there can obvious
ly be nothing but random talking.
English speaking people through
out the world are constantly comin
iito closer and closer relationship
and this is especially true of the peo
ple of Englandsand the United States
Gradually it is being realized tha
there can be no great difference be
tween the standards of conduct and
life so long as our civilization run
parallel. This is particularly true o
those who are interested in educa-
tion in the two countries because It its
from the educational institutionns of
the nations that each may gain in-
spirations and help to accomplish the
desire results.
Divent as the two systems may
be, they are closely related in enough
respects so that if the best phases
of both may be combined, the result-
ant will approach the perfect.
There have been many reports made
by English educators, and volumes
written by American investigators, but
they were not comprehensive enough
to be satisfactory. They have dealt
nore with the administrative features
than the general conduct of the
schools. There have been two dis-
tinct attitudes prevalent in such sur-
veys. The very patriotic Englishmen
have noticed only the faults of some
of our least satisfactory systems,
While the same type of American ha's
only compared the best of our schools
with the worst of the English. Many
statements have been made by peo-
pIe of. both countries who were not
actually qualified to comment on the
school systems, but they were accept-
ed as true..
The proposed study will deal with
the intimate phases of both school
systems, and it will be directed by a
joint committee of educators from the
representative schools in each coun-
try. It cannot, however, be a com-
plete success unless a sincere inter-
est is manifest by all parties con-
cerned. There must be full coopera-
tion between the school officials and
teachers of each country. In view
of the fact that an opportunity is
offered for a 'study of the vital prob- I
lems of the two nations, the results.
of which are certain to prove almost
invaluable, it is to be hoped that edu-
cators in both countries will do all
in their power to make the study a
complete succemss.
PAGE MR. BOWERS
We wonder, now that Al Smith has
named a foremost representative of
big business to be chairman of the
Democratic campaign, who in turn
has appointed a prominent New York
financier to be chairman of the im-'
