A reply to the letter of Mrs. Afri
J. Brosseau, national president of tl
D. A. R., which she wrote followi
an address of Dr. President Little
Wayne recently, was issued from t
president's office yesterday.
The text of the letter is as follows:
July 17, 19
Mrs. Alfred J. Brosseau
National Society Daughters of ti
My dear Mrs. Brosseau:
Absence from the State has pr
vented before my acknowledgmenthc
your letter of the seventh. Witho
commenting on its references to m
recent remarks may I express my a
preiation of the fact that you clear;
distnguish between the University o
Michigan of which as you sta
I "happen at the moment to b
President" and my personal view
Fortunately for me those who are th
governors of this institution give m
the right to personal opinions eve
though they may not agree wit
them and I am glad that these opir
ions will not be confused by you wit
the University which so greatly a
preciates what you and your hu
band are doing to aid needy student
Of course that fact cannot for a m
ment be desired by either of us t
influence me in stating what I be
lieve to be right.
To some Americans of Revolution
ary descent and to some equal]
American citizens whose encestry Ii
this country is more recent the pres
ent situation appears menacing. W
do not care to be ruled either6 by
side or foreign influences or by insid
secret deliberations and decisions o
an inner and privileged council of an:
organization. We prefer to deal di
rectly with principles and ideals t
which we can be whole heartedi
loyal. We believe that organization
should exist for the use of mankind
not for his enslavement. We believ
also that we recognize what America
means to us and that we have no
only the right but the duty when w
see a society-no matter how fai
may be its name-standing as a men
ace in the path of buch relationship
between our country and its citizens
td say so in no uncertain terms.
In these days life is very compli
cated. It is very probable that neither
you nor I are entirely right in ou
point of view. Unfortunately neithe
of us is as well qualied to judge o
our own correctness as are those ver
impersonal old gentlemen Time and
Experience. Why not agree to dis
agree without personal bitterness o
slurs as to one anothers personalities
or positions. The world will prob
ably go on just the same.
Very truly yours,
C. C. LITTLE.

e Review, By Stratton uk'
r The Rockford Players are nothing
- if not versatile this season. "Marchl
s Hares" which the company presented
s in a brilliant manner last evening is
es different from "Chicago" as "Chi-
r cago" was from "The Mean Who Mar-
r Tied A Dumb Wife." This play is a
r light airy sort of thing, in which the
f lines are fascinating and the situa-
Y tions novel and amusing, but which
seems to spend three clever acts jour-
- neying from somewhere to no place
r at all. Everyone ha'a a good time en
route so the actual destination makes
no difference anyway.
Geoffrey Wareham and Janet Rod-'
ney, both teachers of elocution, it
seems, have been engaged to be mar-
ried for three years when the play
opens. Janet's mother keeps house
for the two, an~d defines herself as
the equilibrium in., an otherwise tem-
peramental household. Geoffrey lives
with the Rodneys, he explains, be-
Oause if he is going to be fond of peo-
ple he prefers to live 'under'the same
roof as they. The roof begins to leak.
however, when Claudia Kitts comesj
to visit the family over the week end.
Geoffrey invites one Edgar Fuller,
who cau't take ' omen like him, to
spend the same week end with the
group, which leads to diff.culties, as
Rodneys haveonly one guest room.
Rodneys have only one - guest room.
Thus it is possible for Geoffrey to
sleep on the living room couch, and
provide that very amusing: second act,
played almost entirely if' pajamas.
Anything that does not happ en to the
household during that night is not
worth telling about. Geoffretv and
Janet break their engagemeA t, only
to patch it up again in the finale,:
Speaker Shows Tendency For United
States To Vote Republican
May Defeat Smith
"Not in my menory has there been
a presidential election which has been
as exciting and thrilling as the com-
ing one promises to be," said Prof.
Joseph R. Hayden in his lecture,
"Some Political Results of Our Sys-
tem of Presidential Election," deliver-
ed in Natural Science auditorium yes-j
terday afternoon. "Each party has
put forth its best man and contrary
to some other campaigns, both are
well known to the nation."
"The past achievements of the tw<
candidates assure us that either will
make a. good executive. The election
is remarkable in that it is the firs'
time both parties nominated their
choice on the first ballot, and it is theC
first time a Roman Catholic has run;
for president. This is an evidence of1
increasing toleration. Smith is with
out peer in' his ability to get aloi
with his fellow politicians. In thi
respect Hoover is an unknown quan-

many of our new citizens feel that i
is time that such a man was mad
,After thus contrasting impartiall'
some of theucharacteristics of the tw
andidates, Professor Hayden, 1b
means of maps, gave a brief history
of the results of some of the pa
elections. He showed how Wilson, i
1912 garnered over 6 million popularf
votes, while the Progressives and Rr
publicans together had more than
million. But in the electoral college
Wilson had 435 votes to 96 for thr
other two candidates. He gave this
as an example of how the electoral
college may work.

EAST LANSING, July 17.-The first
inter-city social conference and th
tenth annual summer school for agri-
cultural teachers were under way at
Michigan State college today follow-
ing registration Monday. The socia'
conference will continue through
Friday, while agricultural instruc-
tors will remain here two weeks.
Dr. Jesse T. Steiner of Tulane uni-
versity will speak to social workers
during the week. Miss Lucia Clow.
superintendent of case work for the
Family Welfare association of Mil-
waukee, is another speaker.
Estes P. Taylor, editor of Americant
Farming, Chicago, is among the prom -

teachers. Others include: J. A. Linke,

at all but Mrs. Ethel Brown, while
Mrs. Rodney walks a million miles at
least bringing cups of coffee to the
exhausted young people. She believes
in coffee for everything.
All of which gives little picture
of Harry Wagstaff Gribble's farce.
The piece has very properly been de-
scribed as mad, but who cannot en-
joy such madnes§ from time to time?
The whole thing is wildly impossible
and highly amusing, while the dia-
logue simply scintillates from begin-
ning to end.
The Players caught the spirit of
this farce perfectly last evening. The
production was carried off with a
smoothness, zest and speed that the
troupe has attained in no other bill.
Every member of the cast was ex-
cellent. Robert Henderson yin the
leading role of Geoffrey did by far
his best work of the summer. This
whimsical, half mad sort of a char-
acter is the sort of thing Henderson
does best. The enthusiasm that he
carried to Geoffffrey last evening con-
tributed much to the success of the
production while his conception of
this part that might easily have been
made ridiculous was admirable. While
we don't blame Janet for getting dis-
gusted with Geoffrey, we understand
also why everyone liked him.
Elberta Trowbridge wasl equally
good in the rather thankless role of
Janet. Katherine Wick Kelly was of
course perfect as Claudia Kitts. Her
reading of the free verse poem was
as funny as anything introduced dur-
ing the performance. Roman Boh-
nen made an excellent Fuller, and
Marvel Garnsey a delightful Mother
