Union Committee Appointed to Re.
ceive Manuscripts.
Last Saturday at a meeting of the
board of directors of the Michigan
Union the first steps towards next year's
opera were taken. A committee con-
sisting 'of Professor Scott, Earle G.
Killeen, Hollis Baker and Roy Welch
together with President Watkins was
appointed to select the book for the
opera and to mnake the preliminary ar-
rangements. As yet the committee have
taken no steps but a meeting will be
held in the near future to decide upon
the requirements that the writers will
have to comply with in order to have
their books accepted. At this time they
will also set a time limit for the ac-
ceptance of manuscripts.
A movement has also been put on foot
to organize a Comic Opera club and a
committee consisting of Frank .Kapp,
John Dennison, Earl Moore, Fred Law-
ton and Robert Moreland has been ap-
pointed to draw tip a constitution. The
committee is expected to have plans per-
fected within a short time and then more
definite action can be taken.

This evening Prof. Hollisters classes
in Shakespearean readings will present
Macbeth in the second of their semi-
annual recitals. These public recitals
have proved very popular in the past
and with Macbeth as the play, this one
should not fall behind in interest.
Several Koanzaland stars are mem-
bers of the classes and thus exceptional-
ly good talent is assured. They will
have an opportunity to distinguish them-
selves in tragedy as well as comedy.
The recital will be held in Sarah Cas-
well Angell hall at 8 o'clock this evening
and is open to the public, to whom a
cordial invitation is extended.

It is expected that the end of this
week will find the souvenir edition of
"Le Malade Imaginaire," the play that
is to be presented by the Cercle Fran-
cais, on sale. This book, which is the
fourth of its kind published by the
French department, is put out in a very
attractive form. It is printed on fine
paper and has a dark olive cover that as
in keeping with the rest of the souvenir
plays. s
The books will be placed in the clas-
ses immediately after the spring vaca-
tion. ,
-i Rehearsals of the spring play are pro-
gressing rapidly and before the end of
the week the rough work will have been
covered This leaves about ten days in
which to put on the final touches and
arrange all the details. With this
amount of time for merely finishing the
production, a huge success is looked for.
That China, with its immense natural
resources, will one day be the foremost
nation of the world, is the prediction
of Victor Jose set forth in a lecture at
McMillan hall Sunday evening. At the
present time China is the richest and
at the same time the poorest country
on the globe, richest in the sense of
their unlimited undeveloped wealth,
poorest as regards the poverty stricken
condition of their masses. The whole
country is gradually awakening to the
full realization of its true worth and
ultimate importance, under the guidance
of foreigners, and their native pupils.
Mr. Jose illustrated his lecture with
stereopticon views, taken from personal
experiences in the far-eastern land. Be-
sides speaking of China's wonderful re-
sources the speaker touched upon its
domestic, political, educational and social

utilized by athletes desirious of nunier- '
als. All but a few of the classes have
made their first call for candidates, the lnutsbigosrefwnigt
that they can afford to K ait, that at
least, being the excuse given.
As usual, all the teams that have fig-
ured in class baseball games in the past
to any extent are advancing claims to
the championship, and most of the claim-
ants fully believe what they say. The
1912 engineers, winners of the title last
year, have brought forward the asser-
tion that they will repeat. The 19G.
literary team which lost the final game
in the last inning when it was apparently ,
safe will have no chance to retrieve
their lost honors but plenty of other
squads are ready to jump into the
Freshman teams seem to have the best
opportunity of winning their way into
the last rounds, as the varsity needs
have made it necessary to call on every
man of known ability as a candidate for
the first team. In that way the other
classes are robbed of their best men
while the freshmen's strength is un-
impaired. Inexperience is the only fac-
tor that stands in their way but from the
style of work exhibited so far the first-
year men need not fear that to any
great extent. '
No interclass manager has been ap-
pointed as yet and it is hardly possible
that the unenviable position will be giv_-
en out until after the spring holidays.
Then the regular task of putting to-
gether a program of games that will
suit a bare majority at least, will coin-
The schedules are usually made up
after two plans, used alternately. The
first is to have the classes fight among
themselves for the departmental cham-
pionship, and the second is to put the
names in a hat and trust to luck that
the best teams will not be eliminated at
the start by running against other teams.
The usual objection to this is that it
gives one department a good opportunity
to have both final game teams, thus
causing interested spectators to forego
pleasure of witnessing a pleasant alter-
cation between such friends as the en-
gineers and the laws. When the former
plan is tried the engineers always claim
that two of their teams are so far su-
perior to any team in the other depart-
ment that it is a shame to eliminate one
of the good ones at the start.
An attempt will be made this year to
secure enough competent umpires to
avoid pitched hostilities marring the pro-
gress of the game. ]n the past the meth-
