that the Streett players aro pre

realistic sections of contemporary
American life that they have pre
sented in the course of their en
gagement here.
"Kempy," and "The Family Up

Theatregoers who saw them with
the Streett players will remember
them with pleasure.
But neither of those two plays
had as a callaborator in its writing
the greatest living master of col
loquial American. "Love 'Em and
Leave 'Em' has this in John V. A.
Weaver, who aside from being the
most Important American poet
who has emerged in the past 10
years, has the surest knowledge
and most effective use of "Amer
icanese" that can be found among
contemporary writers.
"Love 'Em and Leave 'Em"
takes its title from one of Weav
er's best dialect American poems,
but the story is taken from other
of the themes on which Weaver
writes, and is woven by George
Abbott, with Weaver's assistance
s linguist and authority on folk
ways of the American lower mid

is more than -comedy.

DETROIT. Sept. 27. (APJ.
With 230 'Detroit policemen or
dered to be fn readiness for what
ever may happen, and the possi
bility of their reenforcement by a
deuduaeat of - state police, the.
martial background was laid 'to
night for what may be a tempest
uous republican state convention
here tomorrow.
The seat of war shifted here
tonight from Lansing where a cir
cuit court order was issued' today
which, in effect, told the conven
tion what delegates it should seat
from Wayne county (Ietroit).
This order would bar thone dele
gates supporting Fred W. Green,
nominee for governor, and would
seat delegate favorable to Gover
nor Groesbeck. who was beaten
for renominatinn as governor by
Green at the September 14 pri
mary election.
Judge Lei and W. Carr at leas
ing' held that the legally chosen
delegation was that named by tho
"regular" Wayne county conven
tion after Green supporters had
bolted and had set up an opposi
tion meeting.
The republican state central
committee called ' a meeting to
night to determine what course to
pursue tomorrow. It was said
there is a strong possibility that
neither delegation will b recog
nized, leaving Wayne county with
out a vote in the convention
which then would be virtually an
all-Green affair. Such procedure
is not without precedent in Michi
gan political history.
SYRACUSE. N. Y., Sept. 27.
(AP). The Xew York democratic
state convention held its opening
session today and perfected tem
porary organization with Franklin
D. Roosevelt, former assistant
secretary of the navy, as chair
mr.n. The resolution committee work
ed until late tonight in drafting
the party platform, which is to be
presented to the convention for
adoption tomorrow. Believing
that a world court plank ought to
be inserted, in the document, it
was decided that the platform
would endorse any plan that
would result in making war im
possible in the future. Another
plank will declare for an all
