Comedy Club's Performance a
Success in Every;Detail. l
The Comedy Club was greeted last
night by a very large and fashionable
audience, the faculty and nearly all
the fraternities attending. Theatre par-t
ties were given by the Chi Psi, Phi1
Kappa Psi, Psi Upsilon, Delta Chi, and1
Mr. Karl E. Harriman, the star of
last year's company, occupied a box on
The entertainment was somewhat late
in beginning because of the tardiness
of the audience in arriving. The play
as a whole was an unqualified success
and the company all in all was prob-
ably superior to that of last year, al-
though there were no such pre-eminent
stars as in former year,.
Mr. Pettibone, a jealous husband,
happens to see a letter from a Mr.
Smyth, arranginig with Mrs. Pettibone
to come when her husband was away
to call on Mrs. Pettibone's daughter.
The jealous husband supposes the call
is intended for his wife and decides to
depart at once for Europe. He leaves
his house in charge of his nephew, Al-
fred. The latter is in debt and decides,
with the help of a protege of his to rent
ioons in the house to pay off his debt.
So a comic opera singer, a broken-down,
nervous musician, a retired produce
dealer from the provinces, and a young
spendthrift are taken in as lodgers.
Out of the relations of these lodgers
and their mutual mistakes a number
of very funny complications arise. Fi-
by Messrs. Young and Stone, and by
M isses Spencer anud Culver.
A feature of the performarce was the
music set for the play by Mr. Lotis
Pingree prizes Awarded.
Adjt.-Gen. E. M. Irish has made a re-
port to Gov. Pingree in connection with
the request of Gov. Pingree for a re-
port from university students as to the
pay of soldiers in the late rebellion. The
governor offered $50 to the first stu-
dent, $25 to the second and $10 to the
third who would tell him what differ-
ence it would have made to him had
he been paid in gold or the "best mon-
ey," he having received a bounty of
$50, pay of $13 per month and having
been in the army three years ond four-
teen days. The governor also wished
to learn what difference it made to the
whole army and how much it would
take now to pay the difference with 3
per cent interest payable semi-annual-
ly and compounded. Gen. Irish receiv-
ed answers from nine students, and
In considering their respective cor-
rectness I have been greatly assisted
by Capt. Cornelius Gardner, U. S. A.,
and I desire at this time to acknow-
ledge his careful and painstaking ef-
forts in verifying the lengthy compu-
I concur with him in the conclusion
that the answer of M. J. Barry is en-
titled to the first prize of $50; that of
Romanzo Adams to the second of $25;
and that of R. M. Watkins to the third
The answers of Mr. M. J. Barry to
the questionSare as follows:
ill Make an Extensive Trip in
For a number of years students of
he engineering department have made
ilgrimages to various manufacturing
ties during the spring recess. Last
epr the trip wats not taken as enough
tudents did not care to make it to
et the reduced rates. This year the de-
artment has again taken up the ques-
on and yesterday laid before the stu-
ents three possible trips, one of which
ell surely be made as enough have
ready signified their intention to go
o make it ttcertainty.
The first and cheapest will be from
ere to Detroit, where one day will be
pent visiting the Brass & Copper Roll-
ng Co. mills, Frontier Iron Works,
wyandotte Shipyard, city lighting sta-
ion and Free Press. The next stop
kill be Cleveland, where two days will
e spent at the Globe Iron Works, the
'nion Screw Co., Warner, Swazey &
o., telescopic establishment, Walker &
Co., manufacturers of electrical appar-
tus, and other points of interest. From
Cleveland the party will go to Pitts-
burg and spend the remainder of the
week at the Homestead Iron Works,
and Edgar Thompson Steel Works,
Lucy furnaces, Westinghouse Air Brake
Co., Westinghouse Electric Co., Cres-
cent Steel Works, Allegheny Locomo-
tive Works and tle different lighting
stations. The return trip will be made
The second choice is from here to
Detroit and thence to Niagara, where
the big electric power plant will be in-
vestigated. Pittsburg, Cleveland and
Detroit will then be visited in succes-
The third trip will be from here to
Niagara and thence to Bethlehem, Pa.,
where the party has a special invitation
to visit the large steel works awaiting
them. Philadelphia will next be visit-
ed, and the Cramp Shipbuilding Co. and
the Baldwin Locomotive Works in-
spected. The return trip will .be via
The cost of the first trip will be abut
$35, the second $40 and the third $50.
In all probability the second vwil be
the one made. The Board of Regents
.ve tappropriated the money neces-
sary to pay the instructor's expenses.
The trip is primarily designed for Jun-
or mechanical engineers, s.nd Prof.
Cooley is quoted as having said that
he considered it nearly as beneficial as
a semester's work.
