RELATE HISTORY OF
German Society Organized in 1900
by Doctor Jonathan A.
It was away back in 1900 that the
Deutscher Verein held its gatherings.
This would make it 16 years old and a
20th Century club.
Professor Jonathan A. C. Hildner is
the founder of the society which held
its first meetings at his home or in
the old chapel, now Registrar Hall's
The purpose then, as now, was to
acquire fluency in speaking German.
German songs were sung, recitations
given, and stories told. Inside of a
year or two the members presented
their first plays.. Light comedy was
the rule at first, but gaining confidence
the heavy dramas were tried with
Perhaps the most successful play of
all was the "Goethe's Egmont." It was
of the most credit to the University and
the most instructive to the students
The trend of the last few years has
been back to the lighter comedy,
though it is hoped that this year the
society will put on a war play of the
Duetscher Verein is on the third
floor of University hall. On the walls
are pictures of Heidelberg University,
Bismark, Goethe and the casts of all
the plays produced. The club numbers
over 600 members.
The society will hold its first meet-
ing of the year tonight at 8 o'clock,
in room 305 U-hall. Owing to Mr.
Lehman's inability to return to school
this year, a new president will be
elected in his place for the semester.

WILSON TO GIVE 22 TALKS
Rear Platform Speeches for Four
States on Way West.
New York, Oct. 16.-President Wil-
son has decided to make 22 rear plat-
form appearances with perhaps short
"howdy-dos" on his way to and from
Chicago where he is to address a non-
partisan meeting at the Press club
next Tuesday. Twelve of the stops
are to be made up state in New York,
three in Indiana, and seven in Ohio
and Pennsylvania. All the platform
appearances will be at regular stops
of the New York Central lines be-
tween here and Chicago.
The president leaves here Wednes-
day at 1 o'clock in the afternoon. The
appearance of the president in Chicago
is to be made an event by the Jews
in that city who will be celebrating a
holiday. They plan to present the
president with some token of apprecia-
tion for what he has done for the race.

A motion picture play, acted and
written by students of the University
will be produced by the Comedy club
for the coming season. This is the first
attempt of its kind in an American
college, according to Morrison Wood,
'17, president of the organization.
The play will be chosen from those
submitted in a scenario contest which
opens today and closes March 17, 1917.
Prof. Rankin, Mr. Bryson and Dr.
Moriarity will act as judges. The fol-
lowing rules will govern the contest:
1. The contest will be open to any
student of the University.
2. The scenario will be either three
or four reels in length.
3. Some part of the scenario must
deal with University life, its exteriors
will be laid in and about Ann Arbor,
particularly on the campus, and it
must be a comedy drama. This
scenario is not to be a travelogue or
a picture containing simply Ann Ar-
bor life, it is to be a photo play with
a distinct plot.
4. At the close of the contest, the
judges will choose the three best
scenarios submitted. Then a drector
of some prominent motion picture
company will collaborate with the
judges in choosing the most suitable
one of the three. If it is possible to
produce the scenario, the author will
be awarded a prize of fifty dollars.
5. All scenarios must be written on
one side of legal cap paper, the first
sheet containing the name of the play
and the initials, only, of the author.
The manuscript must be fastened to-
gether in some manner. A sealed en-
velope containing the name of the
author, with the name of the play and
the initials of the author in the upper
right hand corner must accompany the
manuscript. The judges reserve the
right to bar any scenario otherwise
submitted. Address manuscripts to
Morrison C Wood, 733 South State
street, Ann Arbor. There are several
books on the subject of scenario writ-
ing in the library which contain the
technical knowledge necessary for
play writing. Additional inform-
ation may be obtained by galling
Morrison Wood, 'phone 387.
The play will not be centered en-
tirely upon University life. It is sug-
gested that one or two reels be de-
voted to this part of the plot, the re-
mainder dealing with characters before
or after he is in college.
The play will be filmed by some
prominent motion picture concern and
shown in the local theaters. If the
plot is general enough in character it
is quite probable it will be taken over
by some film company and sent to mov-
ing picture houses all over the coun-

It is doubtful if a sillier proposition
was ever put forth by the chairman
of a National Committee than that of
Vance McCormick, the -Democratic
Chairman, that there be created a Wil-
son day. Other presidents and their
champions have been content to leave
that sort of national tribute to be de-
termined upon by their admirers after
their death, but Mr. McCormick's prop-
osition carries with it the suggestion
that possibly Mr. Wilson's admirers
are fearful that when time has given
the American people a correct per-

be disposed to pay such tribute to his

Even should Mr. McCormick's sug-
gestion be adopted, there would be
difficulty in choosing an appropriate
date for "Wilson Day." Of course there
is February 10, the date on which he
wrote the "strict accountability" note
although it is doubtful if that would
please the extreme pacifists. Then,
there is May 10, pleasing, no doubt to
the extreme pacifists because it was
the date on which Mr. Wilson an-
nounced that the United States was
"too proud to fight." But it, on the
other hand, might not meet with the
approval of the more patriotic Demo-
crats. A compromise might be reach-
ed on May 17, the day when Secretary
Bryan, by explicit direction of the
President, explained to Ambassador
Dumba that the "strict accountability"
note was solely for home consumption
and "not to be taken too seriously
Of course it must be admitted that
there is much in favor of fixing the
day before March 4, because if that is
done Mr. Wilson could proclaim the
festive holiday himself, deliver an ap-
propriate eulogy of himself and his
own accomplishments, and conduct
the ceremonies from within-instead
of from without-the White House.
Indeed, if Mr. McCormick's brilliant
suggestion is to be put into execution
it might even be wiser to select a dote
before November 7, as it would seem
more appropriate to celebrate the fes-
tival of an undefeated, rather than of
a defeated, candidate. An eager pub-
lic anxiously awaits from Chairman
McCormick details of the date and
plan of celebration of his proposed
By George Creel, Written for the Dem-
ocratic National Committee.
Does Mr. Hughes believe that Huer-
ta should have been recognized? Is
he in favor of intervention in Mexico?
Would he have sent troops to the
border or not? Would he have en-
dured the Villa raid or dispatched the
punitive expedition? Would he have
refused Admiral Mayo support in his
Tampico ultimatum, or would he have
backed him up just as President Wil-
No power has been able to drag an
answer to these questions from the
100 per cent candidate. He bubbles
with mean, nagging criticism and con-
tributes no single helpful suggestion
or positive (statement.
The whole matter of Mexico con-
stitutes an acid test of the American
people. Ten thousand have owned all
the land in a country of 15,000,000.
Foreign concessionaires, working
through venal officials, have seized the
natural resources. For years the vast
bulk of the Mexican people have been
cursed by every oppression and cor-
ruption, condemned to poverty, slav-
ery and illiteracy. It is freedom, hope
and aspiraton that they are fighting
for, just as America fought and as
President Wilson has refused aid to
the effort to restore their chains. He
has refused to use their struggle as
an excuse for conquest. He has re-
fused to guarantee the profits of con-
cessionaires with the blood of Amer-
ica's youth. He has stood flat on the
proposition that every people has the
right to work out its own destiny, and
in the face of every irritation and im-
patience, he has tried to give aid, sym-
pathy and encouragement.
Do Americans believe in democracy?
When they talk of freedom and jus-
tice, is it for all peoples, or just for
themselves alone? Have we reached
a point where property rights are put
above human rights, greed. above
honor? Is the Declaration of Inde-
pendence still a faith, or only a hypoc-
risy behind which we plot meanly and
