GRETS DEMONSTRATION WAS
OT GIVEN MORE PUBLICITY IN
tor, The Michigan Daily:
s the uplift of the great demon-
tion held on Monday in Hill audi-
uum, is succeeded by calm reflec-
i, the gathering takes on more and
re the character of a great service
consecration to the nation in its
r of need; and this must be a
se of pride to every true patriot, as
.s to the University and the city.

ist M. Wurster, who, while he rep-
ents our citizens of German ances-
, typifies also the loyalty of most,
[ot all, the German-Americans in

by the occasion and by the rapt

apart and the national emblem
,ted down like an apparition, Mr.
idert exclaimed, "My, but that is

eted, his voice betraying his emo-
i throughout his speech, and he
erwards admitted that he had had
iculty in controlling himself, soj
eh did he feel the responsibility of

'he roar of the "ayes" which came
voting upon the resolutions by its
ntaneity suggested a touchdown at
tball, and there could be no doubt
the earnestness that lay behind it.
correspondents of the Detroit
e Press and of the Ann Arbor
aes News recognized that for the
versity the occasion and the event
ht properly be compared with
hing which has occurred since a
ilar gathering in 1861 at the out-
ak of our Civil war.
t is therefore unfortunate that such
event and such an occasion could

a only of what is devoted to any
at football game and less than
ce that used on the same page for
election of the circuit judge. The
brief but pithy telegram which had
come from General Leonard Wood,
had in consequence to be badly clip-
ped and mangled in order even to find
space for the resolutions-resolutions
which were considered important
enough to be telegraphed in full at
once to the United States senators and
WM. H. HOBBS.

AT THE MAJESTIC
Guy Voyer and the entire LaSalle
musical stock company opens at the
Majestic this afternoon in a new mus-
ical piece "It's Up to You, John
Henry.' Voyer scored successfully
here last season in other LaSalle
shows, "Miss Nobody from Starland,"
"The Time, the Place, and the Girl,"
"Whose Little Girl Are You?" "Lovers
and Lunatics," "The Girl Question,"
and "My Cinderella Girl."
Besides the LaSalle beauty chorus,
the old favorites Harrie Lee, Minnie
Pillard, Flo Berry, Jack Price Jones,
Walter Poulter, and James LeRoy
have splendid chances in the new mus-

fers harmony selections.
AT THE MAJESTIC
"Civilization" which comes to the
Majestic theater Monday afternoon for
six days' engagement with daily mat-
inees, is a portrayal of the world at
war and is a special appeal to hu-
Never before has anything been at-
tempted that was as stupendous, as
spectacular or as soul inspiring as the
scenes portrayed during the. unfolding
of this story, giving to one man the
power of life and death over men,
women, and children.
"Civilization" shows war in all its
horrors, but on the other hand, it is
an argument for permanent peace and
points out the surest way to obtpin
it. Thomas H. Ince spent $1,000,00
to produce this masterpiece as a pro-
test against war.
President Wilson has highly en-
dorsed it as a photodrama that no one
should miss seeing. It has been pro-
nounced more stupendous than "The
Birth of a Nation" and more appeal-
ing than "The Battle Cry of Peace."
Regardless of nationality or creed it
will appeal to every man, woman and
child who witnesses a performance.
Matinees will be given daily at 2:30
o'clock and two performances will be
shown at 7 and 9 o'clock. This will
be the first time that this production
has ever been given at prices as low
as the patrons of the Majestic will
see it, as in all the large cities it has
been shown at prices ranging up to
$1.50 and $2.00.
To appreciate the beauties and to
understand the message of "Civiliza-
tion," one has to see it personally, be-
cause it is a personal message to
every thinking person.
