RAPS CANNONS REMO&AL
STUDENT CRITICIZES PLACING OF
MEMORIAL AT "BACK DOOR OF
UNIVERSITY"
Editor, The Wolverine: -
After enumerating the advantages
and joys of belonging to the regular
army during the time of the Great war,
the modern soldier, in a recent num-
ber of Life, closes his- discourse with
the humorous, yet pathetic, appeal,
'How long will it last?"
For Michigan, at least, that question
has been approximately answered by
recent action of the buildings and
grounds department. And it has been
answered in a way that by no means
does credit to the patriotism of this
University.
I refer to the removal of the memo-
rial erected by the class of '99 to men
of the University who fought in the
Spanish-American-war. At present it
is located at the back of the new Li-
brary, where it has been placed upon
a permanent cement base.
If inference may be drawn, and I
think that the similarity of the two
situations would permit this, Michigan
remembers no longer than 20 years.
However odious the inference, facts
remain to substantiate it.
The companion to the Spanish-Amer-
ican memorial, the University flag
pole, has fared much better, for it is
now a part of the official entrance to
the campus. Quite appropriate, is it
not, that the flag and its holder should
go to the front door of the University,
while the memorial to the defenders
of that flag should adorn the back
door? -E. L. R.

BOLSHEVIK POWER GROWS
IN RUSSIA, SAYS '414N
LICHTIG, LAW GRAD, RETURNS
AFTER 14 MONTHS' SERVICE
OVERSEAS,
With 14 months' service overseas to
his credit, 10 of them spent in snow-
bound northern Russia, and with ex-
periences ranging from fighting Bol-
sheviki to visiting places of interest
in England and Scotland, David B.
Lichtig, '14L, has returned and is in
Ann Arbor for a few days' visit.
Lichtig joined the engineers' corps,
and with but three weeks' training
was sent across, first to Scotland, then
to England, and then to northern Rus-
sia. He has seen service on the Vaga
front, and was with the 339th when itr
retreated last March before the Bol-
sheviki. He spent 10 months in the
"land of the midnight sun," the last
three months of his service being in
the hospital. Ile is now fully recov-
ered, however, and expects soon to
resume his law practice.
Asked about the Bolshevik advance
in Russia, Lichtig said that in his
opinion the party was growing in
power. "Eighty per cent of the
people," he said, "are poor and illiter-
ate, and are like children in a great
many ways. Give them tobacco or
candy, of which ?there is at present a
scarcity, and of which they are very
fond, and they will do anything for
you. The Bolos have no trouble win-
ning this kind of native over to their
side. They promise the present land,
more land than he has ever had be-
fore. And the poor people, who have
never known prosperity, eagerly swell
the ranks.

AT THE THEATERS
AT THE ARCADE
"Fools and Their Money," one of the
cleverest comedy-dramas of the sea-
son will be presented at the Arcade
today with Emmy Wehlen in a role of
distinctive individuality. The play tells
the story of an ambitious 'social climb-
er, the wife of a newly made munitions
millionaire, who mistakes the daughter
of an ultra-aristocratic family on the
adjoining estate for a servant. This
girl sees her opportunity for an ad-
venture, and, as her parents are away,
decides to act as social secretary for
the rich parvenues. Her experiences
are many and varied, and end by her
realizing that the son of these newly-
rich is a 'virile, red-blooded, young
man far above the average of her own
set.
Sunday and Monday Alice Brady in
"Marie, Ltd." will be the attraction.
This has been described as "The Mil-
linery Romance," owing to the factj
that Miss Brady acts as a saleslady in
a" millinery store. There are beauti-j
ful hats galore.
Miss Kelley to Lead Wesleyan Guild
The Wesleyan guild of the Metho-

vited to attend its meetings.

brook's tennis records, was one of
complete approbation," explained the
secretary of the league. "There was,
little doubt on the part of the mem-
bers that Wesbrook would win the1
Michigan state title at Detroit, and the1
testimony of the sacred Mealimuths
only confirmed this opinion.
The Real Dope Begins
"Wesbrook has been playing tennis
but four years, and his rise has been
phefiomenal. Before he was out of
high school he won the state title in
the mixed doubles, paired with Miss
Buda Stephens, of Detroit. In 1918
he repeated this feat with Miss Steph-
ens again as his partner and also won;
the singles championship.
"In addition to his Michigan title,
Wesbrook has won a number of
tournaments outside the state," con-
tinued Smith. "He is the Intercol-
legiate Conference champion in ,both
singles and doubles, representing the
University of Michigan in the Big Ten
tournament in June.
"Wesbrook swept through the Uni-
versity's dual tournaments the past
spring wit4 ease, winning his matches
against Minnesota, M A. C., Chicago,
and Ohio State in straight sets. Wes-
brook did not lose a single set the
entire year, in either singles or dou-
bles, and in the Conference champion-
ships he won again in straight sets.
"Wesbrook was paired with Bartz
in the doubles while at the University,
but it was the wonderful playing of
the former that carried the pair
through unbeaten.
"Wesbrook is defending his Mich-
igan title on the Detroit Tennis club
courts this month. He won his first
round match handily, defeating C. E.
Wilson, of Chicago, 6-0, 6-1. He de-
feated Bastian, Indiana University
star, 7-5, 3-6, 11-9, in a sensational
match Thursday and beat Reindel,
Friday, 6-2, 6-2, 6-4.
"Among Wesbrook's rivals in the
tournament were Ira Reindel, former
tain, and Walter T. Hayes. Wesbrook
beat Bastian in the Conference tour-
nament in the semi-finals, the latter
representing Indiana.

(lDestroying Churches
"The Bolos are destroying most of
the churches," he continued. "The
churches in Russia are very beautiful,
and there are a great many of them
wherever you go. But they are being
destroyed by the hundreds, the Bolos
believing that one reason for the
peasants' being oppressed was be-
cause of the autocratic power the
church exercised over their lives.
"Speaking of the Russian's love of
tobacco, which was a scarcity during
the war and was seldom seen in Arch-
angel outside of the axmy, when we
first landed in Russia, we were sur-
rounded by natives offering to buy
cigarettes. For one go.od American
cigarette, you can get a ruble any
time. For chocolate bars they'll give
you five rubles a. piece. And cocoa
will command almost any price. Hard-
tack, too, strange as it may seem., is
a great favorite with the Russians,
and they are eager to buy it from the
soldiers."
U. S. Soldiers Outnumbered
Lichtig's work while in the front
line was to build telephone lines,
bridges, repair roads, and the like,
and took him through many thrilling
experiences. "The Bolos almost al-
ways outnumbered us," he resumed,
",and sometimes they had us worried,
especially during the retreat in March.
At one time I was with a company
that was entirely surrounded. We
had four machine guns, and the Bolos
had about 15. I'm not ashamed to say
that I was scared to death. I thought
any minute might be the last. But
we always managed to pull through."
Archangel, according to Lichtig, is
quite a modern city, with a normal
population of about 30,000, though
the war population is much greater,
due to the many refugees who come
there. "It is the largest city in the
world at that latitude. At present
there are more then 100,000 people
there, and they are of all nationali-
ties. The city itself is quite like any
city, with electric street car service,
lights, telephones and even a fire de-
partment, which, however, looks very
comical beside our own.
File Department in Action
"I saw it in action once. It re-
minded me of a Keystone comedy. The
firemen wear immense helmets, made
of brass, which are very high and
then curve down in front and back,
something of a cross between the old-
fashioned knight's visor and Na-
poleon's famous hat. They arrive
