after all, they are limited by the
desires of the people themselves.
The South should learn to look at
itself from the viewpoint =of an out-
sider, and perhaps it would realize
the seeming paradox of its two
traditions-one of adherence to the
laws which it has recognized, the
other a passion for violence and
bloodshed without the atoning mer-
cy of the courts.

THE DIVIDED SOUTH
It sems to us that the time has
come for something to be said con-
cerning the lawless lynching par-
ties that are held with an ominous
regularity in the South. Lynchings
have occured in other sections, al-
though they have been almost un-
known of late, but Southern mob-
parties have continued as in the
days before the civil war and, have'
even seemed to increase.
Perhaps it is true, as some of the
inhabitants of Dixie charge, that

not be disputed. We do not mean o
to criticise where criticism is not
deserved, nor do we fail to realizej
that the northern "hex-murders"
and gang wars place us in a posi-
tion open to adverse comment, but
a situation which outrages all the,
decency and sanity of the civiliza-
tion we have established is not sub-
ject to these difficulties. g e
Innumerable incidents might be
cited in which the passions of the
people have rushed them into re-
gretable violences; the latest of
these is the threat of mob action
which is being made by the citi-
zens of Birmingham toward thel
person of Lester Bouyer, a negro,
who is alleged to be the slayer of
Jack Hines, a mechanic, and who,
is said to be guilty also of an at-
tack on an eighteen year old girl
who was accompanying Hines.
Nothing definite has been proved
against this new victim, but then,
a little suffices in Birmingham.
Bouyer has not been arraigned
before the grand jury as yet, and
his case still hangs in the balance
between specific charges and gen-
eral complaints. However, the cit-
izenry does not need definite
charges-the slightest hint of a
crime, and they begin to uncoil
their well-worn ropes. There is
little reason to wonder that such
an attitude is beginning to arouse!
disgust in other sections.
One of the first things that is
done by respectable men and wo-
men in colonizing a new district
is the establishment of law and
order. It is a first requisite to the
founding of a community, and a
boon to further progress. But, if
those who build up a system of law
and order choose to disregard it to
the extent of murder, there is no#
choice but to consider that com-
munity barbarous and uncivilized.

manitarian ideals has carried us,

WHAT IS UNEMPLOYMENT?
(From The Toledo Blade)
The United States is unprece-
dentedly prosperous, and yet it is1
estimated that the number of un-
employed adult persons in this
country is from 1,500,000 to 8,000,-
There are two reasons for the
wide range of opinion. No unem-
ployment census has been taken
and there is no general agreement
upon what unemployment means.
If cripples, invalids, college grad-
uates, and others who have never
been gainfully employed, house-
wives who seek only to earn pin
money, stenographers who have
quit their jobs to marry, and part
time workers are included in the
calculation, the number of the un-
employed will appear very much
larger than if only persons who
are mentally and physically able to
work, who usually work and who
cannot find employment, are in-j
cluded in the enumeration.'
Tentative plans for an unem-
ployment census on the latter ba-
sis are being considered by a small
executive committee of leaders of
capital and labor in various fields
appointed by Secretary of Com-

would be inestimably useful for fur-

The Tatterman Marionettes is an
organization founded in 1923 and
controlled by William Duncan and
Edward Mabley of Detroit. They
have given some two thousand per-
formances since their inception and
the reception given them has been
uniformly enthusiastic. Duncan
and Mabley have chiefly been con-
cerned with managing and produc-
ing the shows, Mabley handling
matters of design in set, costume,
and puppet figure and both of them
executing the plans. For their plays
the producers have associated with
them Miss Catherine Reighard of
New York city and recently a grad-
uate from~ Prof. George Baker's "47
Workshop" at Yale. Miss Reighard
is a member of the class of '15 at
the University of Michigan, from
which her interest in the drama led
her to Yale. The repertoire of the
Tatterman Marionettes includes a
number of Miss Reighard's original
plays and adaptations by her of
prose stories, the best of which ap-
pear in "Plays for People and Pup-
pets" which E. P. Dutton & Co. have
published. In reviewing the book
the New York Herold Tribune plac-
ed it among the "fifty best books
for 1928." "The King of tlpe Golden
River" which is being offered Mon-
day afternoon, is from this collec-
. The repertoire of the Tatterman
Marionettes includes plays for
adults as well as for the juvenile
taste. They include; "On The
Stairs," an ironic tragedy arranged
from the story by Arthur Morri-
son; "Our Lady's Tumbler," a new
and delicate treatment of the med-
ieval legend first made familiar
by Boccaccio and Anatole France.
"The Melon Thief," a Japanese Kio-
gen Interlude-farce, staged in the
traditional manner of the ancient
Japanese theater; "Washington
Square," a fantastic pantomime of
real people. All the arrangements
are by Catherine Reighard.'
"The King of the Golden River"
which is the only production the
company will be able to present,
although directly appealing to the
juvenile taste, should have consid-
erable interest for the adult in the
delicacy of the Ruskin fantasy and
the sophistication of simplicity,
which comes after the craving for
realism in the gradus ad Parnas-
homespun or tweed. It has capac-j
ious pockets, and is often ornamen-
tal with a detachable scarf.
IOWA.-An equitable plan of
ticket distribution has been worked
i out for the University of Iowa's
conference football games next
fall, whereby yearly ticket holders,
alumni, and non-alumni, all have
as many seats on the 50-yard line j
I or on either side as any other one
group. Newspapermen will be placed1
in a central area on the west side.
Some 1,200 seats will be held for
supporters of the visiting teams.
