as to which has accomplished the

argument. -

families on this continent while the
brown eyed ancestors of the first
ladies of the land were answering

Books And Drama
Occasionally, when the pressure of
studies is lax enough to allow some
of our staff to read books other than
texts and reference works, The Daily
will publish their comments on what
they have read, with all the altruistic
motives of informing and advising
the public which inspire every book
review column. Some of the books
will be brand new, some sensational,
some less exciting but perhaps mare
weighty, and there will be some which
while not the very latest are still
prominent in literary circles.. We
start with one of the latter.
Revolt In The Desert, by T. E. Law-
rence. George H. Doran Co., New
York, $3.00.
If Lawrence of Arabia were seeking
to gain a lot of publicity, he could not
have devised a better course of action
than that he has followed since the
war. In this day of blatant advertis-
ing, when "world's best" and "world's
greatest" are titles which apply in-
discriminately to the most common
)roducts, it is only modesty which
arouses attention. The modest Lind-
bergh is famous over night, and, in a
smaller sphere, perhaps, Lawrence's
enlistment as a private, under an as-
sumed name, in the Royal Flying
Corps, attracted no little attention.
One feels that Lawrence is one of
those interesting persons who ex-
press their egotism by negation. He
is the opposite of the braggart, con-
ceiling everything but the worst side
of himself, as much as is possible. In
his book, daring raids are made, plans
are formed, and hardships endured by
"we," even when the other part of the
"we" is only a camel. It is always
"I" who is tired and irritable and
wishes it were all over. Brave deeds
are nothing more than gestures to a
gallery, necessary to maintain pres-
tige over the Arabs.
There is really nothing wrong in
such an attitude. Being human, Law-
rence must have found it very dificult
to write a book about himself which
would not disgust the reader with its
continual "I." But he has succeeded
admirably in his task, partly at least
because he garnishes the story of
his campaigns with the interesting
events of everyday camp life. The
book is not merely his campaigns, it
is also his whole Arabian experience.
More often than not he is only a tired
young Britisher who would give his
best camel for a bath and cigarette.
Again he is a student of tribes and
tribal customs, and sometimes a lover
of nature.
All in all the book is an absorbing
picture of war 'time Arabia, with its
sand and sheiks, the former blazing
under the summer sun that would put
an Ann Arbor thermometer to shame,
or freezing in a winter wind; the
latter with vermin in their hair and
other than the amorous leaning which
earlier writers have imputed to them.
One might say much more about this
book; in fact, columns more have
been written and even printed. What
more can one say than that it is well
worth reading?

Ann Arbor has always watched with
interest the announcements from Miss
Bonstelle's playhouse in Detroit. Of
particular importance, is the bill for
next week,. "Three Live Ghosts" by
Max Marcin and Guy Bolton which
was presented in New York for one
While the plot of "Three Live
Ghosts" deals with the experiences of
three returned soldiers, it has nothing
whatever to do with the war and
should not by any means be regarded
as a war play. When the three pals
find their way back to London they
discover that they are all recorded
among the dead, which suits two of
the cronies, inasmuch as they had not
lead any too moral lives before en-
tering the service.
The third pal is shell-shocked and'
merely trails along with the other
two, who have appointed themselves
his guardians since he had a mania
for putting everything in his pocket
that he can lay his hands on.
More trouble than they have bar-
gained for, however, develope when
the shell-shocked "Spoofy" comes to
the lodgings with a baby carriage and
several quarts of priceless jewelry.
It is then that the police get a hand
in the affairs of the three "dead men"
and begin to straighten things out.
"Three Live Ghosts" is wholesome
fun from start to finish. It teaches no
moral; it is never vulgar; but it is a
riot of laughs from beginning to end.
It has been one of the largest hits
in the national stock field, is scream-
ingly funny and should prove a de-
lightful vehicle for the Bonstelle com-
