Unlike the women of America, the
women of Japan have been taught
from their earliest childhood the vir-
tue of obedience.
"As daughters," the moral code
runs, "be obedient to your fathers, and
as wives to your husbands." They
are trained at home and in school to
become good wives and wise mothers.
The Japanese ideals of womanhood
Equal to the men, in their position they
could not ma4ntain it.
At the present the intelligent class'
of Japanese women is establishing a
higher standard for themselves, show-
ing the world that they are capable
of doing more than domestic duties.
All social and foreign questions are
as yet settled with but little influence
from the women. There are many
problems facing them and they find
themselves utterly helpless to meet
It is not because Japanese men are
too lazy to do their own courting that
their parents arrange marriages for
them and their daughters, but this is
an over-emphasis of the Japanese fam-
ily in keeping its lineage pure.
All existing conditions will be re-
formed in the future. The oppor-
tunity of education in private colleges
and universities has been opened to
women and even in some of the im-
perial universities. The Northeastern
Imperial University gave the degree
of master of science to two women last
year and now there is a tendency to-
ward co-education in all institutions
of learning in our land.
new system will be-put into operation
and instead of holding a tournament
in which every player is supposed to
start out on even terms with every
other tournament, the players will be
divided into three classes, and the
higher classes will be handicapped by
the loss of several pieces in the play
with the lower class.
Plans have been made to hold a mail
tournament with Cornell this year and
arrangements are being made to play

Kane was the individual star of the
game, gaining most of the ground for
the freshmen and playing a good game
on defense. Kerr in the backfield also
worked well for the yearlings. Walker
and Davis were the sophomore ground
gainers while Fonner played a good
game on the line.

SOPH ENGINEERS DEFEAT
FRESH IN GRID CONTEST
The ability of Parr, the diminutive
left half of the soph engineers, to hurl
the pigskin into the waiting arms of
Quarterback Jeager of the same ag-
gregation spelled defeat for the fresh
engineers by the score of 6 to 0.
Both teams showed a superior brand
of football to any displayed by class
teams to date. The sophs threatened
the fresh goal several times through-
out the game, but each time the fresh
strengthened and held for downs. The
-only score of the game came when
Parr threw a long pass to Jeager, who
was downed on the 2-yard mark.
Jeager himself took the ball over on
the next play. The defensive play of
Nynan was the feature of the sophs'
play. Time and again he would break
through and grab the fresh quater-
back before he could get rid of the
ball. Howsen was the most consist-
ant ground gainer for the fresh.

The rapidly changing conditions in
Japan seem to have stimulated our
women toward bettering their condi-
tions. Many "movements for women"
hiave been started, but on the whole
these movements have met with pub-
lic contempt. The reason for this
mainly is that the education of women
las been so different from that of

"Some Baby" which comes to the
Whitney theater Thursday, Nov. 9, is
made for laughing purposes only. The
stage bids for response from different
emotions. There are romances that
seek out temperament, tragedies that
find a response in dramatic instinct,
but dearer to the hearts of all is the
farcial comedy that cheers and rouses
the humor in us. "Some Baby" is a
typical plaX of the latter kind. Never
mind its story. Do not get worked
up over its plot. Just imbue yourself
with. the idea that it's a laugh pro-
ducer, a destroyer of worries and
cares, and you will be fully prepared
for a jolly, mirthful two hours within
the glare of the footlights.
The company that will interpret the.
several parts of this play is said to
be of exceptional merit, with Grace

"When Knighthood Was in Flower"
and "The Blue Mouse" at the head.

On account of numerous requests
that Hall Caine's great picture, "The
Christian," be shown again in -Ann
Arbor, it will be given a return date
at the Arcade today. It is a splendid
picture starring Edith Storey and
Earle Williams. Those who have al-
ready seen this exceptionally fine pro-
duction have expressed a desire to see
it again, and those who have not
should take advantage of this oppor-
tunity. It is an eight part feature.
On next Monday and Tuesday the
Arcade offers "The Fall of a Nation."
This is one of Thomas Dixon's pro-
ductions, who wrote "The Birth of a
Nation." Special music for this pic-
ture will be furnished by an orchestra
under the direction of Ike Fischer.
