Once again local theatregoers may
enjoy the opportunity of journeying
with Lyman H. Howe at the Whitney
Theatre tonight. Those who have
learned from previous visits how in-
vigorating and inspiriting are the ani-
mated scenes presented by Mr. Howe
will hail the news with a keen sense
of pleasure. It is an attraction that
needs to be seen but once when its
importance is instantly recognized. In
its range it is world wide, and while
it is instructive it is equally enter-
There is a fine series depicting vari-
ous phases of "preparedness" as car-
ried on at the West Point Military
Academy. No American can view the
march and drill activities of the cadets
without realizing the war depart-
ment's enthusiasm for the future abil-
ity of the institution to produce officers
for the larger American army. The
summer camp of cadets has increased
this year in accordance with the gen-
eral plans for the better. equipment
of U. S. military forces. The larger
activities provided splendid action for
moving picture production.
The program also includes a pic-
torial excursion through Sunny Spain,
to far-off Hawaii, through the fjords
of Norway to Hammerfest-the most
northerly city in Europe, birds and
fish in the colors of nature, outddor
games revealed by normaland ultra-

slow photography, catching sharks,
and all new comedy cartoons which
are so characteristic of the attraction.
Governor R. Livingston Beeckman,
of Rhode Island, in commenting on
George V. Hobart's modern morality
play, "Experience," which will be pre-
sented at the Whitney theatre, Friday
night, Oct. 6, matinee and night Satur-
day, Oct. 7, said: "I don't know when a
play impressed me so much as "Ex-
perience." It reminded me of "Pil-
grims Progress" and "Experience" is
a play it would be well for everybody
to see." Last season "Experience"
was so popular in Rhode Island it
broke every record in the theatrical
history of Providence by playing for
three weeks at the Providence Opera
House, in order to accommodate the
people, it was necessary to give break-
fast matinees. "Experience" also ran
for nine months in New York, seven
months in Chicago and five months in
Boston, establishing new records for
attendance in those cities.
New Course in Scientific Latin
A new course in Latin is announced
by Professor Crittenden, designed espe-
cially for students who do not ex-
pect to take a regular course in Latin
in college, but who have hhd four
years in high school and now wish to:
turn their knowledge of the language
to practical account in scientific or
professional work. It consists in the
reading and interpretation of scien-
tific Latin and the study of terms used
in law, medicine, and the sciences, de-
rived from Latin and Greek. It may be
elected as a four-hour course, or as
two two-hour courses, either of which
may be taken separately.

College Men Become Officers in War
Time, Train Them Now, Says
Prof. William H. Hobbs will publish
in the October 4 issue of the Outlook
an article on military training, in col-
leges and universities. Prof. Hobbs
has given this matter much study and
this summer made a special trip to
Washington in order to confer with
the War Department and to ascertain
the best conditions under which the
University of Michigan could co-oper-
ate with the Government in installing
the Department of Military Science.
The substance of his article is as fol-
"Experience has shown that in event
of war men of college education quite
generally offer their services to the
government and rise to positions of
commanders, whether they have had
previous military training or not.
Hence the vital necessity of giving
them suitable military education, if
the frightful incompetence shown by
officers of our Civil War, during the
early years of that struggle, is to be
avoided in war with a nation really
"As regards to universities and col-
leges such as Michigan, Indiana, Kan-
sas, and the privately endowed uni-
versities of the eastern seaboard,
which do not have compulsory mili-
tary training, the Defense Act recent-
ly passed provides voluntary as op-
posed to compulsory military training
financially supported by the federal
government, and with an organization
of uniformed military units as nearly
as possible like those of the land grant

gan), as well as the others, the War
