Philosophy of Rural and
Community Life' Is
A. E.'S Topic.
Sees Danger to Mankind in
Rural Exodus; Advocates
New Social Order.
George Russell. Internationally
known Irnh economist, poet, phil
cisophcr. and Journalist, will speak
At the Stuart theater at 11 odor
todav on the subject "Philosophy
cif Kural and Community Life."
Mr. Russell "AE" to the literary
world it speaking In Lincoln un
der the auspices of the university.
In an interview with a Nebras
kan reporter yesterday afternoon
Mr. Russell explained the agricul
tural organisation that has been
accomplished In Ireland, how this
differs from the type attempted tn
America, and of the problem which
faces America in the rural exodus.
Rural Exodus.
It is estimated, said Mr. Russell,
that if this exodua from the farm
continues, within a few years 0
percent of the American people
will be urban. We do not realize
what this means, because our cit
ies are constantly being replen
ished with a vigorous manhood
li-om the rural communiteis. In
England one need only to see the
extent of degeneration in the three
or four generation city dweller to
realize the horror of the situation
which A mere a faces if this rural
exodus is not stopped.
New Social Order.
Mr. Russell's remedy for this
rural exodus is the building up of a
rural civilization, a new social or
der. Almost always, he says, civili
zation is centered around a few
square miles of brick and mortar.
If we can build up a rural civiliza
tion with true culture and other In
terests then the mere production
of food products, we will have
reached the solution of our prob
lem. , .
Referring to his own country as
a laboratory in which social and
political experiments can be
worked out. "AE" with a truly
Irish love for his home country'
told of the natural endowments of
Ireland, but failed not to overlook
its liabilities in lack of land.
There, he savs. the average size of
a farm is from ten to thirty acres
and the farmers make a comfort
able living off these little farms.
Mystic and Poet.
The roost, impressive thing,
however, of the interview was not
Mr. Russell's theories of agricul
tural economics. It was "AE," the
mvstic and the poet. The rich bar
none voice, the tempered cadence
of his words, the slight very
slight Irish accent, coupled with
the physical appearance of this
broad, eix foot, bearded sage of
Ireland overshadowed his eco
nomic theories.
Mr. Russell was met on his ar
rival in Lincoln yesterday after
noon by a committee composed of
Governor Arthur W. Weaver,

Picture Taking Commences
Tomorrow; Students Are
To Make Own Dates.
Pictures for the junior and sen
ior and fraternity and sorority
sections of the 1931 Cornhusker
will be taken starling Wednesday.
Oct. 22. according to the editor of
the annual.
A new plan is being followed
this year and students will make
their own appoints at Hauck's or
Townsend's studios, instead of
having them made and announced
by the yearbook staff as has been
done before.
"It will be necessary to get the
pictures earlier," stated Kenneth
Gammill. editor, "in order to con
form with this year plans for the
Cornhusker. Our copy must be
sent to the publishers at a rela
tively early date."
As in the past the junior and
senior pictures will cost 3 each
and uhotos for the fraternity and
sorority sections will be priced at
Lower Price Not Feasible.
"We had hoped thai it might
be possible to make picture reser
vations at lower prices this year."
slated the Cornhusker editor, "but
this will not be feasible because
of the new plan upon which tbe
yearbook is sold."
Students may make their ap
pointments for pictures at either
Hauck's or Townsend's, as tbey
personally desire, according to the
yearbook' editor. They are urged,
however, to get them taken as
soon as possible in order that com
plete plans for the annual may be
laid out as soon as possible.
Time Limit.
"There will be a time limit set
upon the picture taking process."
asserted Gammill. "but this will
not be until we can determine how
the student body is coperating
with us in this matter. It is our
sincere hope that, starting Wed
nesday, students will make picture
appointments at their earliest pos
sible convenience. A better book
is sure to result if we have the
pictures in sooner."
Tbe editor of the Cornhusker,
especially stressed tbe fact that
there will be no xersonal list an
nounced e.ah day in The Daily
Nebraska n as was done last year.
The entire responsibility for mak
ing the appointment and getting
the picture taken rests with tbe
student alone and it is hoped that
immediate co-operation will be

War Drama Attracts Large
Crowd to Its Initial
Walter Vogt Stars in Main;
Role of Stanhope.
Young Captain.
A lane and appreciative audi-1

premier showing of "Journeys
End." the first production of the
I'niversitv Players' season, at the
Ten-.ple theater last night. The
curtain rose on a realistic dugout
scene where five officers eat.
sleep, and drink rather steadily.
The effect of war on the souls
of these five men and those who
take their places when they "go
west" is the theme of "Journey s
End." Walter Vogt plays the part
of Stanhope, the young army cap
tain, very effectively. He handles
hii portrayal with restraint and
an adept touch here and there
which makes it very realistic.
Thompson Comedian.
Herbert Yenne'i interpretation
of JUIeigh, the impetuous school
boy. with pep. vigor and sup
pressed excitement, is very good.
William F. Thompson, one of the
guest artists, as Trotter is respon
sible for many laughs in the show.
Trotter is the genial fellow who
always enjoys his food. Robert
Reade plays' Mason, the cook, and
does an excellent piece of work
with this comical character.
An unusual bit of acting is done
by W. Zolley as Hibbert. tbe chap
crazed by his fear of the war. One
of the most outstanding scenes in
the play is the one in which Hib
bert tries to escape from the war
and Stanhope holds him back with
the aid of a gun.
Theodore Diers. a guest of the
Plavers. is very well cast for tbe
j part of the kindly school teacher.

the cast is well chosen and they

I in the cast.
One of the roost noticeable fea
tures of the play is tbe conversa
tion which has to do almost en
tirely with unimportant elemental
things, especially food. What th
characters think and what they
say have no connection. Tbey talk
to relieve the strain and get their
minds off of the war.
"Journey s End" by R. C. Sheriff
is a gripping war story that pre
sents an entirely new angle of the
war problem. It is well staged
and presented very effectively.
As a prologue to every' act, the
entire uniformed cast assembled
and saluted. Decorations in tbe
lobby of the theater also add at
mosphere to the play. Tbe dough
nuts and coffee served after tbe
first act were a realistic note as
well as very enjoyable.
