Last evening the first dress rehear-
sal for the "Professor's Tragedy" was
held in the Athens Theatre. The
members of the Comedy Club have
been rehearsing twice a day for the
past ten days under the direction of
their trainer Mr. Harry Clark.
The rehearsal last evening was all
that the trainer could wish for to pro-
duce a successful performance next
Saturday night, Jan. 16.
From a financial standpoint the
management believes the performance
will be very successful. Most of the
sororities and fraternities have signi-
fied their intention to go in large par-
ties, and there seems no doubt but
that the Comedy Club will present
their first play for this year to a
crowded house.
A member of the local fire depart-
ment will be in attendance.
Team Arrives in Minneapolis Today-
Men Confident-Professor Trueblood
Accompanied Them - Practice in
Chicago for Contest Friday Night.
The Michigan Debating Team, com-
posed of Messrs. Rippel, Bills, and
Holderman, left yesterday morning on
the 8:46 train for Minneapolis, accom-
panied by Professor Trueblood. The
men were all feeling fine and are con-
fident of giving a good account of
them elves on Friday night. The
team stopped at Chicago last night
where a practice was held and a good
night's rest secured before continu-
ing the long journey to Minneapolis.
The team will take the Rock Island
road out of Chicago and cross Illinois
into Eastern Iowa. At Cedar Falls,
Iowa, Professor Trueblood will leave
the train and give a reading before
the State Normal School of that place.
The debating team will continue on
its journey to Minneapolis where it
will be joined the next morning by
Professor Trueblood. The men will
make the West House their headquar-
ters while at Minneapolis. The Uni-
versit.- of Minnesota still retains the
custom of having Chapel exercises
each morning at 10 o'clock and they
have asked the team and Professor
Trueblood to be present on the plat-
form on Friday morning when a gen-
eral rally meeting will be held for
the benefit of their own team. Pro-
fessor Trueblood has been asked to
address the students at this time. Tlhe
debate follows in the evening.
This is the first team which Michi-
gan has sent to Minneapolis although
we have met Minnesota teams three
times before, once here and twice at
Chicago. Michigan has won two of
these three debates.
Returning from Minneapolis, Profes-
sor Trueblood will, stop off, this time
at Cedar Rapids, where he will read
before Coe College. The team will
probably get into Ann Arbor sometime
Saturdaynight or Sunday morning.
Whether we win or lose tomorrow
night Michigan may be proud of the
excellent team which represents us;
and the men on their return should
meet with a cordial reception.
Tonight at 7 o'clock the Junior Lit.
banquet will be held at Oyster Bay.
Hugo Sonnenschein will act as toast-
master and the Harmonic Orchestra
will furnish music. A rousing time
is assured and every '05 man should
make it a point to be on hand.
Judge Donovan, the well-known lec-
turer from Detroit, will deliver a lec-
ture January 29 in the Law Building
