MABEL WEEKS IN "ALONE AT
Want System Similar to Swiss Organi-
tion; Drop Word Com-
New York, March 30.-The national
guard association this afternoon in-
dorsed universal service under federal
control similar to the Swiss system,
but in so doing eliminated from the
resolution the word compulsory.
For a resolution declaring for fed-
eralization of the national guard as
recommended by army flicers, a sub-
stitute drawn by jor-General
O"Ryan of New York was considered
and approved. It recommends the or-
ganization of a national guard under
the defense act by "taking it out of
the militia class and making it a vir-
tual federal force."
Other recommendations adopted
were: That congress establish more
reasonable examinations to give en-
listed men real opportunities of win-
ning commissions; that in time of war
$15 a month be added to the salaries
of all enlisted men of all grades; and
that in time of war all re-enlistments
should be for the duration of the war,
and in time of peace for one year.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Euripeds' "Iphigenia," played at
Hill auditorium Thursday night, was
a splendid evidence of the mastering
of a classic. The students who acted
the part deserve their success.
There are few, indeed, who could
have handled themselves in these
roles, in as masterful a fashion as
did those in the personal of Iphigenia
In the role of Iphigenia, Miss Kel-
sey showed such talent and finish that
the spectators forgave a few defects.
It was unfortunate that to a great
number she could not be heard. Her
opening passage, as well as others
throughout the play, were not only
inaudible, but spoken very rapidly, s
that the audience lost that which if
spoken with moderate clearness,
could have easily been understood-
even in the Greek.
The parts of Orestes and Pylades
were greatly enjoyed, namely because
of the clear, carefully spoken pas-
sages. Mr. Hunter did wonderfully
well. His parts calling for increased
dramatic feeling, were interpreted
The action of the chorus, while as
a whole very satisfactory, could have
been greatly improved. The same
criticism may be offered of Miss Sand-
ers as the leader, as is given to Miss
Kelsey; her lines were not spoken
clearly enough to be followed or un-
derstood. In her dances, she was
pleasing and graceful.
It was unfortunate perhaps that the
chorus as a whole could not have
mastered these movements, for when
a Greek chorus interprets the feel-
ing of the dialogue in an unbroken
and harmonious action, the effect is
most powerful. As it was, this op-
portunity for a masterful touch was
completely lost. Though it is entirely
surmised by present-day students of
the classics that the action of the
chorus of the Greek play is as was
portrayed, yet we have every confi-
dence in our surmise, and indeed the
effect of the chorus could have been
greatly improved had they been in bet-
These are a few perhaps unimpor-
tant criticisms when we consider the
entire action. Barring these few, the
play could be well considered a per-
fect student production.
