Lowly (corduroys
Cop the Laurels
Anent the shafts of caustic criticism
directed at the good old corduroys
worn by the engineers, read this bit
of strange truth that redounds with
not only the glory of their durability,
but the efficacy of the famous slide
rule pocket.
Nerves were strained and hearts
were quivering yesterday when sev-
eral students representing a number
of the different colleges of the Uni-
versity were engaged in a death
struggle for supremacy in the game
of banks and pockets, pool. Victory
in this crucial match, as logic goes,
would indicate the superior qualities
of the winner's department, and as
that above all minor considerations
of scholarship is paramount in the
sporting blood element, the combat-
ants were vieing with every ability
at their command.
An engineer, a law, and a medic
were bunched in the race, and while
the boilermaker was deporting him-
self rather gently for his genus, the
two more dignified professions united
in their efforts to defeat him by work-
ing on his emotions with sinister al-
lusions to his learning, tools, and
habiliment. Goaded to desperation,
the engineer resolved to make his
technique tell. Notwithstanding the
scorn of his natural enemies, he un-
sheathed his slide rule from its velvet
scabbard, and measuring the distances
between the balls and the banks,
made some rapid calculations and
smashed away with his cue and
cleared the table.
The law observed that the verdict
was unreasonable, and that the slide
rule was irrelevant, incompetent, and
immaterial. He- says he will appeal.
The medic said that the patient did
very well under the circumstances.
And the engineer has already been
promised a place in an honor society.

JULIA SANDERSON, DONALD BRIA N, AND JOSEPH CAWTHORNE IN
"SYBIL," WHITNEY THEATER, F RIDAY, FEB. 16.

AT THE WHITNEY

which will be remembered long after
the play has been forgotten.

After a full season in New York and
long runs in Boston and Philadelphia,
"Sybil," the latest Sanderson-Brian-
Cawthorne success comes to the Whit-
ney theater, Friday, Feb. 16;
One of the features of "Sybil" is
that it gives an adequate role to each
of its three stars. Miss Sanderson has
the name part in the play, taking the
part of a young opera singer. Mr.
Brian is a grand duke, and Mr. Caw-
thorne a German impressario. The
play combines a good plot with elabor-
ate staging and musical numbers

AT THE MAJESTIC

The great popularity of the "Crisis"
which comes to the Majestic theatre,
three days, commencing Thursday mat-
inee, as a book is well known. On
the screen it is a vivid picture of the
spirit of the times for the period just
antedating the Civil war.
The high feeling at the time of the
Lincoln and Douglas debates is
brought out in a forceful manner. The
bigness and humaneness of Lincoln

ODE TO NUNNALLY'S
Long I sat engaged in guessing,
All my wonderment express-
ing-
That the sweets that used to lure
me,
Charm no more my bosom's
core.
Once French bon bons were the
fashion,
Brought me by my lovers ashen;
Now Nunnally's is my passion,
'Tis but Nunnally'sI adore.
Luscious, sweet, delightful Nun-
nally's,
Nunnally's that I so adore.
I'll forsake them nevermore!
Eileen Hubbard, Ann Arbor.
