The combination of an able direc-
tor and willing amateurs is bound to
have good results. Lionel Crocker
has worked with his class in "Pre-
sentation of One-Act Plays" so that
the finished product in the form of
the presentation of three plays is al-
together delightful. "Cinderella Mar-
ried," "Another Way Out," and "The,
Pot-Boilers" were given in the

Sujerintendent Thinks More Teachers
Are Finding Out What They Want
To Do And How To Do It


Urging that administrative officials
should take a more active interest in
the academic activities of their
schools, William McAndrew, '86, sup-
erintendent of the Chicago public
schools, last night deliveredan ad-
dress on "The Man With Folded
Arms" at the annual banquet of the
Men's and Women's Educational
clubs of the School of Education at
the Union.
Mr. McAndrew said that in the past
university professors almost invari-
ably considered the organization of
their classes to be their main business
and after this was done folded their
arms and let affairs run on. their own
momentum. "During my freshman
year," he said, "75 per cent of my
work was wasted time while only 25
per cent was worthwhile, and this
because I had a good professor." This
one man was a professor of Latin
who impressed his students with he
living qualities of his subject." Mr.
McAndrew feels that far too many
professors present their material as a
sort of literary hash, making even the
best seem dull and dead. Now, though,
he thinks that superintendents are
being found who are able to pick
men likt his old Latin professor who
are able to make their subjects in-
teresting and useful to their pupils.
"I could have learned what I
learned in college in six months in
the business world," said Mr. McAn-
drew. Students, he thinks, prepare
their lessons only when they think'
they will be called on to recite. Work
should be more carefully supervised
and what is accomplished should be
better recorded so that only that
w ch is of greatest value will be
g ven.t i
But Mr. McAndrew is optimistic for
the future. "More and more," he con-
cluded, "the teachers are knowing
what they want to do and how to do

Brighton theater at Brighton last
night to an appreciative audience.
Although these plays do not have the
ultra-finish of professional produ-
tions, yet they evidence the interest
and understanding of those who take
part in them, and after all the true
interpretation of a piece of literature
can onlyl come through self-identi-
fication with the eperiences portray-
ed in the play or poem. It is the
directness and sympathy which comes
through this identification which so
appeals to an audience, and makes a
play a success.
In this laboratory course in play
presentation, these things have been
considered primarily, and their worth
was undoubtedly evidenced in the
performance last night. Miss LaNola
Fox makes an ideal Cinderella, and
her stage experience added a great
deal to the plays, but others, particu-
larly Dan huff as director in "Pot-
Boilers," Alfred Foster, as the ter-
rible villain, Henry Moser, the old
man, and Madeline Brumbaugh gave
some good bits of acting.
These same plays will be present-
ed in Sarah Caswell Angell hall this
evening at 8 o'clock, and promise to
be even better than last night. Tick-
ets can be secured at the bookstores
for 50 cents.
Costumes for both performances are

Active Arangements On Enlargement
Have Been Delayed By Geneva
(By Associated Press)
RAPID CITY, S. D., Aug. 9.-The
United States will move forward im-
mediately to meet a naval program
described as moderate, it was de-
cided today by President Coolidge and
Secretary Wilbur after surveying the
consequences of the failure of the
Geneva Naval Limitations confer-
Work will be hastened for the com-
pletion of the eight additional cruisers
already authorized by Congress. The
program of the general board for
future ship building was accepted at
the conference.
Just what is the plan of the general
board was not revealed. Mr. Cool-
idge considers it moderate and ade-
quate for defense purposes. The
secretary declined to discuss it, but
it is understood from Washington that
it calls for the construction of twelve
more 10,000-ton cruisers in addition
to the eight.
Within three years Mr. Wilbur
hopes to have the eight cruisers on
the seas. Keels for two already have
been laid. Plans for the other five
have been drafted, but it so happened
that work had not been commenced
pending the Geneva parley. These
eight cruisers included three for
which Congress insisted on appro-
priating money over the wishes of
President Coolidge and the budget.
It was emphasized at the executive
offices that this country already had
a naval program on present condi-
tions, It was hoped that something
in the way of disarmament could be t
accomplished at a conference. The
President is still hopeful of futurel
disarmament but pending that he
realizes the present program must be
carried through.
It also was restated today that the
President will carry through the avia-
tion program outlined by his special
commission in 1925. The secretary
said this would give the navy almost
a -thousand planes within five years.
However, work was called off today
on plans for construction of the gi-
gantic lighter-than-air ship author-
ized by the last Congress. Mr. Wil-
bur reported that the only firm which
had submitted acceptable plans was
insisting upon a cost plus fixed price
contract to which he objected. He
said he would ask Congress to pass
on this before going ahead with new
ships which would be three times as
large as the Los Angeles and would
cost about $4,500,000.f
Statistics from the Summer Session
Health Institute show a total enroll-

ment, for the six institutes, of 144.
The lowest attendance at a single in-I
stitute was at the first with 36 pres-
ent; the highest attendance was atl
the second with 53 present.I
An analysis of the statistics re-!
veals that of the total enrolled 93
attended but one institute; 11 at-
tended 2, 18 attended 3, 3 attended
4, 5 attended 5, and 14 attended all'
6. A further analysis shows that the
enrollment represents 15 different
professions; nurses had the largest
representation with 100 enrolled;
there were also on the roster a doctor
a statistician, a bacteriologist, a
sanitary engineer, a food inspector,
and a laboratorian.
There were 20 cities represented,

Cabinet Splits

A delicate situation has arisen im
England, due to ,the departure of
Prime Minister Baldwin to accom-
pany the Prince of Wales on his
Canadian trip. It was at first an-
nounced that the Farl of Balfour, lord
president of the council, would be
head of the government during the
prime minister's absence. Then plans
were changed and official announce-
ments stated Sir Austen Chamberlain,
foreign minister, was to be acting
prime minister while Winston
Churchill, Chancellor of the ex-
chequer, was delegated leader of the
lower house. Since Churchill and
Chamberlain both are desirous of
succeeding him, Baldwin, eager to
avoid trouble, chose Sir Austen, lead-
er of the moderate wing of the con-
servatives while Churchill become's
idol of the die-hards.

Professor States That West Has
Gained In Number Of Volumes
And Now Equals East
"It is the belief of the librarians
that the library is an index to the co-R
munity," stated Prof. Francis L. D.
Goodrich, associate librarian, in his
illustrated lecture, "The Westward
Expansion of Libraries," which was
delivered yesterday afternoon in
Natural Science auditorium.
Professor Goodrich stated that pro-
vision was made in the state constitu-
tion when Michigan was admitted to
the union for public libraries. Fifty
years ago there were but few libraries
west of the Allegany mountains. To--
day, the east still leads though not
by such a large margin as before.
There are as many volumes in West-
ern colleges as in Eastern schools,
and as many in Illinois as in Penn-
sylvania. "This shows a steady
westward trend," said the Professor.
Professor Goodrich showed slides
and described the large libraries of
the country, beginning with the Cleve-
land public library, built in 1867, and
one of the largest in the United

BOSTON, Aug. 9.-The possibility
of a new respite for Nicola Sacco and
Bartolomeo Vanzetti loomed large to-
night when Gov. Alvan T. Fuller an-
nounced that lie ha "taken under
advisement" the plea of attorney Ar.
thur 1). Hill, of defense counsel, for a
furtl: r stay of execution.
At the same time it was announced
from the state house that the regular
meeting of the governor's executive
counsel, which had been set for
Thursday, had - been advanced to to-
inorrow. If a new respite is granted,
the governor must act "by and with
tha advice of his co'ulsel and the
hastening of the counsel meeting gava
rise to the beclef that the new plea
for the further respite will be given
eaueful coinsideration.
DETROIT, Aug. 9.-Henry Ford to-
day expressed again his opposition to
capital punishment as he discussed the
case of Nicola Sacco and Bartolemeo
"I do not know much about the
court record of the case," Mr. Ford
said. "If there is any doubt about
the fairness of their trial they should
be given a new trial, but in zany
event they should not be killed. We
cannot approve the state's doing what
we would not do ourselves. Killing
of human beings is always an act of
vengeance. I can't see it any other
way. I don't believe in it.
"The country and the capitalists
who are charged by sympathizers o
these men with responsibility for the
killing system would be far better off
if the culprits were not subjected to
the death penalty. Besides there is
always the possibility that the con-
denmed man is not guilty. Human
judgment ma ybe perfectly sincere and
still be mistaken. Killing of human
beings by the state cuts off any pos-
sibility of righting a mistaken judg-
"I believe Sacco and Vanzetti
should not be executed. The sen-
tence of death could be revoked with-
out the verdict of guilty being an-
nulled, and this would give opportuni-
ty to weigh new evidence that may
appear in the men's favor. Provided
the man is guilty, imprisonment pro-
judgment may be perfectly sincere and
time a chance to turn up new evi-
dence and right a great wrong."
