AT THE MAJESTIC
The fact that Madame Sarah Ber-
hardt appears in the Jean Richepin
film "Mothers of France," now show-
ing at the Majestic theater, is not the
only reason for interest in the play.
"Mothers of France" is a symbol of
the spirit of the French republic in
The New York World says, "Emotion-
ally the play could not have been more
powerful or appealing if expressed in
spoken dialogue, and the ability of the
camera to overcome the restrictions of
the regular stage gave the scenes a
realism which brought their message
home to every spectator,"
"Mothers of France" will be at the
Majestic today and tomorrow.
AT THE ARCADE
The Arcade today will show "His
Father's Son," starring Lionel Barry-
more supported by Irene Howley. As
the rich man's son who bet he could
hold a job for a month, Lionel Barry-
more produces some good comedy, and
there are plenty of good laughs. Mr.
Barrymore, by his work in "The Yel-
low Streak," and "Dorlin's Divorce,"
has won a host of admirers.
Tickets for today's performance, for
the benefit of the Ann Arbor Women's
club, are on sale at Goodyear's Drug
store and the Farmers' and Mechan-
ics State Street bank.

schools have voluntary or compulsory
military drill, and many have special
courses in military organization and
strategy under direction of United
States army officers. The corps of
the universities are organized under
the provision made for the reserve of-

has about 3,000 students drilling, Co-

Pennsylvania 1,800, and other uni-

Intercollegiate athletics have been
discontinued by several of the eastern
universities, Michigan, Harvard, Cor-

movement. Wisconsin has been the
only western university to take similar
action. More time can be devoted to
military training without the counter-
attraction of athletics. Physical train-

drill in a few colleges.

Princeton, N. J., April 26.-That the

most undemocratic of methods, as has
been proven by England's experience,
was the assertion of Captain Leslie
Vickers in an address to Princeton
students on his personal experiences
in the world war.
Due to the criminal negligence of a
narrow administration, the flower of
England's young manhood has been
