which constitutes the regular Uni-
versity school year, the Michigan Union is the
ce nter of student social activities for the several
thuand men students on the campus. And justly
so for this is the basic idea upon which this insti-
tution was first founded.
Undergraduate committeemen direct an organ-
ized and well-planned proram of activities cal-
culated to appear to the interests of men students.
They ' conduct discussion forums with outside
speakers, ride bureaus for student transportation,
open houses, Good-Will fund drives for the bene-
fit of the less fortunate members of the student
body, week-end membership dances, student-fac-
ulty relationship programs, and various tourna-
ments, in addition to sponsoring an annual Union
Opera. The numerous facilities of the building,
including a natatorium, bowling alleys, billiard
room, library, tap-roorn, cafeteria, and dining
room are also thrown open to members.
The number of men students who participate in
all these activities sponsored by the Union is suffi-
cient testimony to their value.
in the suimer this programi is drastically cur-
tailed. The swimming pool, library, cafeteria, tap-
room, and diing room are all open, but the
bowling alleys and billiard room are closed, and
all activities sponsored by the student organization
are terminated. In fact, there is no student
organization in the Summer Session.
Granted that the billiard room and bowling
alleys could not operate without a considerable
lass, and therefore, should be closed. It is re-
grettable that there is no student organization to
sponsor tournaments, open houses, ride bureaus,
and dances.
It would be impossible for obvious reasons to
maintain the large staff of undergraduates who
work throughout the regular year, but there are
unquestionably a sufficient number of qualified
committeemen enrolled in the Summer Session
to carry on some sort of a social program for
men students. The League is apparently able to
continue its activities for women students during
the summer months.
It may be argued that the League's program, in;
that to a certain extent it includes men, obviates:
the necessity for such a schedule, but we feel
that this is hardly a su1stitute and that there
is a definite need for a program of men's activ-
The Union is the center of social activities for
undergraduate men, and, as such, it should main-
tain some program throughout the entire school

visos which left the way quite as open for Germany
and France to fly at each other's throats as before.
But the French still believe in the efficacy of
such arrangements. The new plan would bring in
the Soviet Union with Britain and Italy as guar-
antors of the former Locarno agreements between
France and Germany and Belgium, with France
giving similar guaranties if Germany and Russia
attacked one another. In its eastern phase, by this
new agreement Germany, Poland, the Soviet Union,
Czechoslovakia and the Baltic States would sign
a treaty of mutual assistance in case of unprovoked
attack by any signatory.
On its face it is all very simple and well-intended,
but entering into its background are age-old
complications that do not differentiate it from the
old game of power balancing so long a part of the
European diplomatic system. The tendency to lay
one agreement of high-sounding good will upon
another, all with nullifying reservations and pro-
visos, is being carried to greater excess than ever
was dreamed of in pre-war days.

The Theatre
FRANCIS COMPTON just can't forget that he's
English -not even during rehearsal. The char-
acters he's portrayed so far, Grumi y and Sir
Peter Teazle, have both been British gentlemen,
and he's done them to perfection -but how does
this strike you? "Stop that infernal ponding
back stage, old boy, I can't hear a bally word
they're saying," and "Now really, old fellow, aren't
you being a bit of a wag?" He let them escape
during rehearsal.
* * * *
A SERVANT ONE DAY and Sir Oliver Surface
the next -it's all in the life of an actor. George
Totten claims that distinction. He was very good
as Grumpy's valet, Rudduck, two weeks ago, and
in "The School for Scandal" he was even better
as a member of the nobility.

LOUISE PLISS should get credit for this. On the
day of dress rehearsal for "Both Your Houses,"
Jim Doll, in charge of properties, was called out of
town, and no props were on hand,for the show.
What to do? Louise, it seems, came to the rescue
like a trouper. She went here. She went there.
She called here and she called there. When the
curtain went up that night everything was on hand
from liquor bottles to telegrams.

OUR NOMINATION for the local actress most
likely to succeed is Sarah Pierce, who so far this
summer has come through with star performances
in two shows -one as Dona Filomena in "A
Hundred Years Old," and the other as Lady
Teazle in the most recent production. We've seen
her play every type of role from straight juvenile
to character all with the same professional touch.

SHE'S BEEN playing tough roles ever since her
advent in Play Production over two years ago.
And she still has another year in college dramatics.
Sally is an Ann Arbor girl. She has a sister, Elsie,
a sophomore in the University next year, who is
showing the same high type of ability - in jour-

Screen Reflections

Norah ........................Edna Best
Andrew Kerr ................ Colin Clive
Homer.............Hobart Cavanaugh
The General .......... Halliwell Hobbes
"The Key" is the best cinema fare which has
been offered patrons of the Maynard Street house
this summer.
There is nothing strikingly novel about the
plot, which is a repetition of the triangle this
time executed against the background of the Sinn

Fein rioting and revolution in Dublin. Kerr, a se-
rious-minded officer in the secret service, has never
completely won the love of his wife, who is in-
fatUated with his friend, Captain Tennant. When
Tennant is not successful in capturing one Con-
lan, a Sinn Fein leader, Kerr, an intelligence serv-
ice agent, is detailed to perform this task and is, in-
cidentally, successful. While Kerr is performing
his mission Norah and Tennant attempt to relive
itheir past. Kerr returns unexpectedly early finding
Norah and her lover; then leaves her in a huff;
and is finally captured by the Sinn Feiners. The
nanner in which he gains his freedom and recon-
ciliation with his wife is revealed in the surprising
climax of the picture.
"The Key" is well directed, and the dialogue is
excellent. Particularly commendable, however, is
the casting. William Powell, in the role of the
captain, proves that he is capable of playing the
dashing officer in addition to such parts as the
suave Philo Vance and the Broadway dandy. It was
noticed that some of the typical Powell manner-
isms and expressions, notably, "ah, really" and
"please do," were carried over from previous roles.I
The work of Colin Clive and Edna Best, both com-
parative newcomers to the silver screen, was also
very satisfying, and, among the minor characters,
Hobart Cavanaugh, as Tennant's valet, and Halli-
well Hobbes appeared to particularly good advan-

color. Erected near Hollywood, with its business
buildings centering about a typical central square,
the town was modeled from data and photographs
of actual Midwest communities.
The town is first seen as in the closing days
of 1910. As the story progresses, the physical
changes in the little metropolis are apparent to
the audience.
The love story gives a reverse twist to the "eter-
nal triangle" theme by presenting the woman who
holds and clings to the love of another woman's
husband as the prime heroine of the romance.
Although Vergie Winters' love is branded sinful
by her neighbors, she dedicates her whole life
to it, remaining serene in the face of malicious
gossip and persecution with the knowledge that it is
justifiable and unselfish.
So great is her love, that she is steeled to give
up claim to her own daughter, the child being
adopted by its father and his legal wife.
Vergie sees this child grow to young womanhood
under her yearning eyes, daring not to disclose
herself because to do so would harm the ones she
loves, until time brings the drama to a conclu-
Helen Vinson plays the wifely member of the
love triangle, and the various small-town charac-
ters are portrayed by a cast including among
others, Betty Furness, Frank Albertson, Molly
O'Day, Wesley Barry, Ben Alexander and Creigh-
ton Chaney. Alfred Santell directed the picture.

SENATOR CARTER GLASS of Virginia was "put
in his place" the other day by a little old
woman who must have judged the famous man's
age by his height.
She was trying to board - a street car from the
same loading platform on which Glass stood. Her
arms were full, and she was having difficulty.
Suddenly she turned, and with a quick gesture
dumped her parcels in the senator's arms, saying,
"Here, my boy, hold these."
She got aboard, and the senator, obviously for-
getting his 76 years, handed up the parcels with a
spry and gallant manner that did him proud.

They have been amused at the remarkable sim-
ilarity between the skulls of Gen. Hugh S. Johnson
and Clarence Darrow, enthusiastic critics of each

"Lovely gown," commented a friend.

MRS. J. FRED ESSARY, one of the town's better-
known beauties, was seated next to the hand-
some Senator Tom Connolly of Texas at a banquet.
Both being southerners they engaged in a spirited
interchange of gallantries.
Then the gaze of Mrs. Essary's large, sparkling
eyes' began to wander. The senator reached for
her hand and said:
"I suppose I may hold this beautiful lady's

my attention?"

Admiral William H. Standley was peacefully
going over reports in his office one morning when
he heard an undignified snort behind him. There
was a plump, green parrot on the window-sill.
Reserves were called, and for a few minutes the
air was full of blue uniforms and flying green
feathers. But the navy won.
The thing that really grieved the officers was the
undignified conversation of the bird. He sat in a
corner and squawked:
"Cut it out, you So-and-So. Cut it out."

Editor, the Daily:
It is hot and soggy. I have completed, a none
too pleasant day in the lab with burners going;
the rush to get things done. I hurry to eat with
the life-giving thought of a cool swim in the
Union pool this evening.
It is 7 p.m. I come down to the pool. The pool
is closed. I read "Open from 1 to 7 p.m." My heart
sinks. Anticipation of a cool swim gone, I sweat
very freely.
I wax hotly, considering that, being a member
of the Union, I am entitled to some services be-
sides free stationery and a cold glass of water. I
swim at the injustice of it all.
But, perhaps one should have a car. Or, perhaps
.one should not be in lab from 1 to 6 p.m. Perhaps

European diplomacy of late has been busy with a
proposal of France for a so-called Eastern Locarno
agreement. To date, consent to greater or less de-
gree has been given by the powers concerned, with
the exception of Germany and Poland.
The reference to "Locarno," of course, has to do
with the security pact concluded at Locarno, in
Switzerland, in the fall of 1925. That was a time
when faith in signing statements of international
good intention was stronger than at present. Rep-
resentatives of the German, Belgian, British,
French, Italian, Polish and Czechoslovak govern-
ments got together at Locarno with the avowed
intent of seeking "by common agreement means for
preserving their respective nations from the scourge
of war."
