Is Poet for Hen
For men, if not only for men-Pro-
fessor Strauss in his lecture on
"Browning-A Poet for Men," said yes-
terday afternoon in his lecture in
Natural Science auditorium: "Granted
that men no longer read poetry,
Browning is the poet to draw them
back to it." The qualities which make
for this result are found in his optim-
istic philosophy, which exalts the
struggle regardless of result, sees the
good in evil, and the superiority of
age to youth. This optimism is not
the result of shirking life's difficult-
ies, but of meeting them half way. It
is a hital virile thing.
That Browning's poetry is men's
poetry does not mean that it is not
also women's poetry It does not lack
the womanly quality of tenderness. It
is transcendental in spirit and essent-
ially lyrical in expression.
Browning went beyond the plane of
the verse writer and achieved the ulti-
mate Thule of the poet-he reached the
realm of the prophet. He lived not
in the present but in the future and
had a broad and untroubled outlook
over the movements and tendencies of
the age, said the lecturer.

Stacks Located Near Large
Although the architecture and plan
of a library are not so important as
the administration, they are still
very decisive factors in determining
the utility and quality of service giv-
en. This was the point brought out
by Librarian W. W. lishop in his lec-
ture last night on "Some Great
A number of the most famous i-
braries in the world are located in
buildings not originally intended for
books, he said. Among these are the
Vatican and the British Museum. The
growth of the latter can easily be
were added as necessity de-
traced by the different wings that
manded them. The plan of having
the stacks work like sliding doors
has more than doubled the capacity
of the library.
In buildings built specially for
housing books the location of the
stacks has influenced their architec-
ture more than any other one fac-
tor. In a number of buildings, not-
ably the Boston library, the stacks
are built around three sides of a
court which necessitates carrying the
books a long way and slows down
the service. Sometimes they are
planned to ,make a good outside ap-
pearance regardless of convenience.
Such is the case of the Chicago 'ibra-
ry, which is cut up into a number of
The Library of Congress is one of
the best in every way in the world.
The stacks radiate from an hexa-

Famous Bandmaster, Who Comes Here
Thursday, Calls Music Patriotic
John Philip Sousa, who will bring
his famous band to Hill auditorium
next Thursday evening, has been
quoted by newspapers all over the
country as saying during an inter-
view in Boston, "The band is the most
romantic element of war, and without
romance, war is nothing but drudgery.

The noted bandmaster has said
that music in all lands is a greater
power to bring out the patriotic in man
than any force, except the influence of
motherhood. He declared that though
at times there is dissension among the
most civilized people on earth, any
criticism from outside is immediately
met with a united front. This, he says,
is du to the fact that music and song
have ever gone hand in hand with love
Three soloists will appear with the
band in Ann Arbor. Miss Marjorie
Moody comes rom Lyne, Mass., and
appeared for the first time a year ago
at a Sunday night concert in Boston.
Her success was instantaneous and a
public recital followed which establish-
ed a reputation for the young soloist,
then only 20 years old.,
Miss Ruby Helder has met with
marked success on both sides of the
Atlantic with her true tenor voice, and
was a great favorite in England, her
native gcotntry, where she appeared
many times in London. Her specialty

day at Wahr's bookstore, Calkin's drug
store on South University avenue, and
at the Arcade theater.
Led by Soprano
The program to be offered at the
complimentary recital in Hill Audi-
torium, Wednesday evening, will be
given by Ada Grace Johnson, soprano
a member of the faculty of the Univer-
sity School of Music, who is well-
known in music circles. In addition
to her many appearances in Ann Ar-
bor, she has sung in a large number
of cities in Michigan and in other
states. She will appear twice on the
Miss Genevieve Seyler, pianist, and
Miss Lucy Cannon, violinist, both
graduates of the University School of
Music, will appear as guest soloists,
offering Greig's "Sonata, Op. 45.'
Both of these young wmen have
made splendid records in their re-
spective fields, and their contribu-
tions to the program at this time
will be welcomed not only by the
host of friends of both young ladies
but by the music loving public in
general. Piano accompaniments will

Michigan's first farmerettes still
think nature is mighty grand, comes
the report from the J. P. Morgan
cherry orchards, where 40 Michigan
girls are plying their scissors fron
4 A. M. on. Although their wage
earning powers have not placed them
in the capitalist class as yet, yet there
are other compensations - namely,
their next door neighbors. Although
their Uncle Sam wouldn't allow them
to take a hand in affairs across the
waters, it was decided that flat feet
would not prove a serious handicap
in the cherry picking industry, so as
a result, about 50 young men are do-
ing their bit in this way. With this
a common bond, conversations over
F the back fence as to the relative mer-
its of the scissors and hand picking
methods were inevitable, and it was
not long before the gate was dis-

movement was organized by E. H.

who will direct the expending of the
fund in advertising for the naval re-
