'Beyond the Horizon,' Tragedy
of New England Life, Will J
Open Wednesday.
First Produced in New York byl
Provincetown Players With
Richard Bennett.
"Beyond the Horizon," one of the
best known plays of Eugene O'Neill,
will be presented for four nights
beginning at 8:1 o'clock tomorrow
by the Michigan Repertory Players
of the Play Production departmentI
in the Lydia Mendelssohn theatre.
This will be the first production
of the summer season to be direct-
ed by Prof. Elmer W. Hickman, of
the Carnegie Institute of Technol-
ogy, guest director of Play Produc-
Setting in New England.
"Beyond the Horizon," a tragedy,
is a profound study of country life
in the hills of New England. Al-
though written by the author of
"Strange Interlude," the manner of
treatment is entirely different
from that of the nine act drama.
As one of the earliest of O'Neill's
plays, "Beyond the Horizon," has,
become one of the most popular of
contemporary dramas; having been
mounted throughout the country
by mapy repertory and amateur
groups. The play was revised in'

Bennett appeared in the role of
Robert Mayo, the younger brother

success as the wife of Robert.

J. B. Edmonson Says Publishers
Would Welcome Careful
Text Selection.
Dean James B. Edmonson of the
School of Education delivered the
first lecture of the week in the Aft-
ernoon'Conference series yesterday
afternoon in the auditorium of the
University high school. His subject
was "Ethical and Unethical Prac-
tices in the Marketing of Text-
Dean Edmonson presented a sum-
mary of the opinions of superin-
tendents and text-book company
representatives on present stand-
ards for selling and selecting edu-
cational works. It indicated that it
was the concensus of opinion that
the standards followed in the mar-
keting of textbooks were higher
than those followed in other kinds
of business. It was also the general
opinion that much higher stand-
ards of practice were followed in
the selecting of textbooks than were
observed a decade ago.
Training Betters Selection
"Among the influences which are
tending to develop higher 'stand-
ards in the selection of textbooks,"
Dean Edmonson stated, "are the
better training of administrative
and supervisory officers in the
techniques of selection, and the
development of a greater sense of
responsibility on the part of teach-
ers and superintendents for the se-
lection of the best type of text-
"Keener competition between
text books companies," he contin-I
ued, "has tended to raise the stand-
ards of textbook making and to
eliminate certain unethical prac-
tices in the marketing of books."
Dean Edmonson stressed the re-
sponsibility of educators for the se-
lection of textbooks and for setting
standards to govern the textbook
business. He pointed out that edu-
cators could very quickly force a
publishing house to discontinue
any of its unethical practices. He
condemned the suggestion that
state legislation was needed to in-
sure high standards of practice in
the selection of textbooks, and ex-
pressed theopinion that the teach-
ing profession should devise ways
of protecting the schools from pos-
sible corrupt influences of business
