banquets, club meetings, and a,
la ge number of other activities to
occupy the attention of the sum-
mer students.
All this makes up a really im-
pressive program for eight short
weeks, more undoubtedly than
could possibly be attended by any
one student. However, there is no
reason why the interest and sup-
port of every man and woman en-I
rolled this summer should not be
given to these projects. Their im-
poi tance in the educational world,
in the development of new thought
and a progressive spirit in the col-
leges of America, cannot be over-
emphasized. This is true experi-
mental education, the testing of
new aims and ideas by practical
application, and more advantage
should be taken on the campus of
the benefits offered.

At the Detroit Civic Theatre
about the only show in town
worth seeing goes into its fourth
week of re'cord breaking fun. It is
Dion Boucicault's "After Dark; or
Neither Maid, Wife Nor Widow,
which from its very opening struck
Detroit's funny-bone such a crack
that the theater-going public is
still laughing.
Miss Bonstelle is able to present
"After Dark" by special arrange-,.
ments with William A. Brady who
owns the producing rights, and who
so far has only released them to
Christopher Morley for his Hobo-,
ken Theater. In this Subway-cir-
cuit relic of the gay nineties, very
much plush-and-gilted, Morley has
been earning a national reputation
for the way he has been making
fun of these hoary landmarks of
the dramatic art. The ominously
titled "After Dark" was written in
1860. Morley put it on very much
in the spirit of good natured fun.
It turned out just' raucously. In a
curtain speech delivered every
night he asked the audience to re-
vive that good old custom of hiss-
ing the villain and cheering the
hero. They do say that the audi-
ence took the rotund "Kit" more
than seriously, with the result that
your seat-mate frequently turned
out to be worth the price of ad-
mission all by himself. But how-
ever that may be, and everybody
has heard one or another of the
wisecracks that have been hurled
at'the anachronizing actors, De-
troit is taking the presentation
somewhat more seriously in the'
comic vein-if you fathom the par-
adox-and the show is genuinely!
good fun.
An amusing sidelight on this
show, considering the recent suits
of one sort or another charging
plagiarism, 'is connected with the
bit of business, now proverbial,
where the hero frees the heroineA
from the railroad tracks just as a
great big express train is about to I
crush her to a bloody death. The
huge locomotive actually does ap-.
pear on the stage-though they re-
port, somewhat dilutedly, the Bon-
stelle Stage carpenter's remarks
made during the process of con-
structing the cardboard-and-lath
engine. At all events, Boucicault
was the inventor of this particular
"thrill." It went so well when first,
produced that a rival playwright'
copied the thrill outright and wrote
a whole new play around it. Taken
to court, the new play was ad-
judged plagiarism and Boucicault
was awarded full proprietary rights'
