WHY NOT AN ENDOWED THEATER
Dramatic society of the University is making plans for a cam-
ater, wherein all campus productions may be staged, and the
play producing studied. It has long been felt that Michigan
.ave such an institution, which will be an aid not only to the bet-
entation of student theatricals, but also to the various courses
rama included in the curriculum. A campus theater will be an

ent as play-writing Michigan will be able to produce capable dra-
such as are turned out from Professor Baker's Workshop at Har-

On the Other Hand-
Why She Is a Bolshevik
To the Editor of the New York Times:
Many of my friends ask why I be-
lieve in Bolshevism. I will tell you
why. Because it isn't right that John
D. Rockefeller chew all the gum 'he
wants, wear silk socks every day, have
all his teeth gold if he wants, when I
have to count every penny. Why, this
profiteering is awful. I had for lunch
today only one pickle, a cup of coffee
and cream, orange and a loganberry
sundae, and it cost me 55 cents.
Now, I hear they are going to have
automatic telephones, and I suppose
I'll lose my job as a telephone girl
just when I had got a voice with a
smile, held the record in our office of
only 83 wrong numbers in one day,
and could say three so it sounded just
like a tree toad: I am a high school
product and splendidly educated.
Yours for Bolshevism.

Why do I eat this hash house chow?

While they bask 'mong the zephyrs

It dominates my whole career.
So through the summer's heat I fret,

BRITISH COMPANY TO MAKE
New York, Aug. 13.-A large British
engineering company has announced
its entry into the field of motor car
production with a model which is
openly regarded as an attempt to meet
American competition. The company
hopes to put 20,000 cars on the mar-
ket the first year. This car is of the
16-20 horse power, five-passenger type
and is to sell at approximately $1,500.
There is no guarantee that the mak-
ers of this car will be successful in
putting it on the market in the quan-
tity necessaryto make the price pos-
sible, nor that it will prove satisfac-
tory in service. Only one car has been
built for testing purposes It has been
run almost 30,000 miles and is report-

Air Patrol Stops Forest Fires
Washington, Aug. 13.-The recently
established aerial forest fire patrol
discovered 35 fires last week in Cali-
fornia and Oregon and made 79 flights
for a total of 8,530 miles., the air serv-
ice tonight announced. The patrol
service was extended last week to
Oregon and 28 of the fires were dis-
covered in that state. Ninety-one fires
have been discovered by the service

guish the greater number of these fires
before they gained headway.
