There were no spreads, no fudge par-

no knitting in the dormitories and

PROF. R. T. CRANE
"Italy's failure to declare war on
Germany is a fact which the Italians
overlook in questioning our hesitancy
in declaring war in Austro-Hungary,"
said Prof. Robert T. Crane yesterday
in discussing the alleged unrest in
"A declaration of war does not pre-
cede hostilities today, it follows them,"
Professor Crane continued. "When
the declaration does come it announ-
ces that a state of war has existed, an
arbitrary date often being set." Prof.
Crane cited the cases of the Russo-
Japanese war, and our own declara-
tion of war on Germany last spring.
"There are many difficulties attend-
ing belligerency among nations," ad-
ded Professor Crane. "Not only are
treaties put to an end by a formal
declaration, but also all intercourse in
a commercial way. Public and pri-
vate property is left a problem, di-
plomatic relations are impossible, and
alien residents need attention.
"Other considerations possibly en-
ter into the present attitude of the ad-
,ministration, but it is largely influ-
nced by ones just discussed. It is
well to remember that war is the ex-
ception rather than the rule," Profes-
sor Crane concluded.

AT THE WHITNEY
225 E. Liberty.
For the latter part of this week,
beginning today, "Happy" Lou Whit-
ney and her associate players will
offer the melodramic success, "Why
Girls Leave Home." This is one of
the biggest plays of its kind that has
ever been written and it teaches a'
great moral lesson. The production
will be sumptuously staged and the
players are especially suited to their
parts. The popular matinees on Wed-
nesday and Saturday will continue as
a special feature this week.

El Ateneo Cervantes, Michigan's re-

a well attended business meeting Tues-
day night in Lane hall.
About 50 members and applicants
for membership were present. Plans
for the year were discussed and a:

aims of the society was presented by
its presidbnt, Harry Stocker, '19. The
society is to produce a play in Span-
ish next semester.
The culb had a membership of 75
last semester, and indications point to
a greater membership this year, so
that there should be plenty of material
from which to select the cast. All
students are eligible for membership
who have had one year of Spanish or
are familiar with °the Spanish lan-
guage. The club will hold its second
meeting, which will be in the form of
a social, on Tuesday, Nov. 13.

Inexperienced debaters will have a
golden opportunity this year to make
a place on the Varsity debating teams,
according to authorities in the ora-
The new rule, barring from compe-
tition men who have received four
years of college credit, cgupled with
lack of experienced debaters in the
University, will make it comparatively
easy for inexperienced men to win a
place on one of the teams.
The finals in each debating society
must take'place by Nov. 11. Six men
will be chosen from each of the so-
cieties at these finals. Students who
are not members of any society may
try out in any one of the societies by
paying a fee of 50 cents.
As usual, each member of a debating,
team this year will receive the testi-
monial of $50 and a gold medal. Mem-
bership in Delta Sigma Rho is also
open to men who make the team.
The bibliographies of material for
the first debate are now ready for dis-
tribution to those who expect to try
out. The question concerns the com-
pulsory arbitration of disputes on rail-
ways and other public service corpora-
tions. For copies of the bibliogra-
phies, students may see Prof. R. D. T.

Today and tomorrow the Arcade
brings to the screen for the first time,
the well known comedienne, Madge
Kennedy, in "Baby, Mine." Margaret
Mayo's celegrated farce comedy as
made into 'a picture by ,Goldyn, is
bound to prove one of the most suc-
cessful farce comedies that the
screen has ever seen. Those who
have seen Madge Kennedy's first mo-
tion picture at a private showing held
by Goldyn throughout the country,
predict that the charming little come-
dienne will be one of the world's most
popular motion picture stars within
a few months. She possesses that in-
definable feminine something which
makes for instantaneous success on
screen. If her first two pictures do
not make her the darling of movie-
going millions, many a critic will
miss his guess.

FROM THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE SUCCESS
By MARGARET MAYO
Critics go to the limit in boosting this picture:
New York Tribune:-Just as everyone had about definitely
settled in his mind yhether he preferred Marguerite Clark or
Mary Pickford, along comes Madge Kennedy and upsets all the
calculations. She is sweet, she is subtle, and her style is inimi-
Cleveland Leader:-Thank heaven, here is a star who does
not gain her comedy effects by making grotesque faces, Madge
Harold Edel, the alert managing director of the New York
Strand theatre, makes this significant comment: "After playing
'Baby Mine' at The Strand I would not exchange Madge Ken-
nedy, present or future, for any great existing star of the films."
New York Herald:-This new star, Madge Kennedy, will
prove a gold mine in the motion picture business. She keeps her
audiences laughing constantly.
Motion Picture News:-Madge Kennedy screens perfectly.
There is something about her screen work that reminds one at
once of Billie Burke and of the Gish sisters at their cleverest
best. She is a woman of unusual beauty and is able' to grasp
the comedy expressions perfectly.
