LOS ANGELES, July 28.-A doz-
en pilots, survivors of the all-Amer-
ican air derby, rested here today
after completing approximately
4,000 miles of their aerial jaunt
about the United States begun a.
week ago at Detroit.
The derby will swing eastward
Wednesday, reaching in one-day
jumps Ogden, Omaha, Chicago and
Detroit, where approximately $50,-
000 in prize money awaits the win-
Lieut. Lee Gehlach, first to ar-
rive at Metropolitan Airport held
a comfortable lead of more than
two hours over J. R. Weddell, New
Orleans, who moved into second
place by virtue of the withdrawal
of Stub Quinby of Moline, Ill., who
disabled his ship landing at Doug-
las, Ariz., Sunday morning and was
forced from the race.
Gehlbach, who led the flyers
here on the jump from Douglas in
4:16:47 hours, was 11 minutes
ahead of Weddell on this lap, driv-
i n g h i s low-wing monoplane
through desert heat and across
treacherous mountain areas at an
average speed of 150 miles an
Stringing in behind these leaders
was Heman Hamer of La Salle,
Ill., who was reinstated Sunday
night after being scratched through
error but for whom a total flying
time has not yet been figured, and
Lowell Bayless of Cleveland, whose
time was 29:02:59.
Stanton Down Twice.
Throughout the afternoon the
remaining eight pilots brought
'their ships down. Their blistered,
oil-grimed faces testified to the
blazing heat of the desert.
Stanley Stanton, Blackwell, Okla.,
was forced down twice on the lap,
once with a leaking gasoline tank
and again with a bad oil pump,
while Hamer had his wing jammed
when an automobile struck it at
a landing field, but he was able to
continue after emergency repairs.
Neither knew the names of the
towns where they landed.

SOMETHING ABOUT WAR
At the Michigan theatre: Erich Maria Remarque's "All Quiet on the
Western Front" with Louis Wolheim, John Wray, Lewis Ayres, George
"Slim" Summerville, Beryl Mercer.
Lewis Milestone's production of
"All Quiet on the Western Front"
possibly is not a great moving pic-
ture, but it certainly is an excel-
lent one. We shall not go to the
length of terming it the finest talk-
ing drama that has been made. No,
it lacks the opportunities for su-
perb acting. It is a copy, a very
good copy, of Herr Remarque's
book. And the book is not great,
for it lacks depth of philosophy.
The picture shows war, war with
all crudity, war without the glam-
our and heroism of the popular
conception, a meaningless war
fought by men who are almost
puppets in the hands of some in-
visible force. It .is physical, real.
There is little of the psychological
reaction as it was illustrated in
"Journey's End," or of ethical forces
in war as they were developed in
"The Case of Sergeant Grischa.''
While playing in a foursome,
July 26th, with Professors Dia-
mond, Thiesen, and Woody, Pro-
fessor Francis D. Curtis holed

It is a new conception, that of a
youth of twenty carried into the
army by the patriotism of a school-
master, disillusioned by the reality,
almost deadened by the horror. It
is the conception of one of "a gen-
eration of men who, even though
they may have escaped its shells,
were destroyed by the war."
Sometimes specific features are
a bit overdone, but not annoyingly
so. Rather, certain scenes are
dwelt on a bit too long.
Louis Wolheim is interesting and
amusing as "Kat", one of the vet-
erans who help to show Paul the
ropes at the front. There are some
relieving interludes of crude but
genuine clowning between him and
"Slim" Summerville, who played
Tjaden. Louis Ayres is good as
Paul, although he annoyed us oc-
casionally. The cast, one the whole,
is remarkable. There are, as we re-
member it, 27 major characters,
and not one fails completely to
"click." The size of the cast per-
haps makes it difficult to place in-
dividuals, but the problem is han-
The picture is, in our opinion,
thoroughly worth while. We feel
no hesitation in giving it an A.

Don't be always taking your work or love
affairs too seriously. It will only end by
proving you know less and less of more
The neatest trick you can pull is to slip
into the nearest soda fountain or refresh-
ment stand -around the corner from
anywhere -and invite your soul to the
pause that refreshes. There and then,
seen through a rose-colored glass of deli-
cious, ice-cold Coca-Cola, all things fall
into true perspective and you 'become a
man amongst men once more.
