"Guess we'll have to dib up the S. R.

ger Homer Heath, of the Union, last
evening, while the seat sale for "The4
Awakened Rameses" was at its height.
"Without a doubt this has been the
greatest sale ever held in the- history
of Union operas."
As early as eleven o'clock yesterday
morning a long line was stretched
from the Whitney theater door along
Main street. Despite the dribbling
rain which continued during the great-
er part of the afternoon and evening it
was necessary to delay the hour ap-
pointed for closing the sale.
Purchases of from'eighteen to thirty-
six seats were not uncommon, many
finding it more convenient to pay a
"waiter" than to do the waiting taem-
The sale to the general public will
begin Monday morning at 9 o'clock at
the Whitney theater box office.
"While the sale so far has been far
beyond our expectations," said Chair-
man Cox last night, "we want it ex-

plenty of good seats left. Those who
come Monday will still have an ex-

RUMORS CAME FROM 1 ALUMNUS.
The question of Michigan's return
to the conference has spread farther
than the campus and is now dividing
the Chicago Alumni. Numerous press
dispatches have been sent out from
that city stating that the alumni wish-
ed the return of Michigan and that
steps were being taken to this end. It
was also reported that Dr. Eisenhart,'
an alumnus from there, appeared be-
fore the conference meeting and asked
what would be necessary for Michi-
gan's return. But there is another side
to the story.
While it is true that there are certain
alumni who wish Michigan back, this
is not the general feeling of the alumni
association of that city. When Dr.
Eisenhart appeared before the commit-
tee, he did so entirely on his own in-
itiative and without the consent or
knowledge of the association so that
this action has no significaice what-
soever. Immediately following his ac-

viously-announced. The banquet which

to be held at the University club at

will be taken to Harmonie hall whlere
the smoker is to be held.

To Quit Conference,
Minnesota's fight with the conference
in regard to the summer baseball rule
has suddenly taken a new turn that
may result in the severence of connec-
tions between Chicago and Minnesota.
At least such is the tenor of dispatches
from the Maroon camp and backed up
by the word of Stagg.
The Chicago authorities have become
peeved at Minnesota's independent at-
titude and have determined to take an
aggressive hand in the question. Al-

Tickets for the Cercle Francais
course of lectures and entertainments
will be placed in the hands of members
of the French faculty and active mem-
bers of the Cercle today. A series of
ten numbers is featured on the course,
and all numbers will be open to hold-
ers bf the tickets. To secure these
tickets and associate memberships in
the Cercle, the price is 50 cents for
students and for others $1.00. An ad-
ded feature of this year's ticket is that

A new ruling has been introduced
into the law department requiring all
members of the second and third year
classes to cloose their electives for
next semester on or before Friday, De-

the appointment of the committee and
stated that as soon as any action was
taken the authorities here would be'
notified. In as much as the newspaperE
articles concerning the~matter rely al-
most entirely upon the statements of
Dr. Eisenstaedt, it is evident that it'
is not the attitude of the Chicago asso-
ciation. There are alumni who oppose

on the ,question is doubtful unless

Forty thousand catalogue cards from
the Royal Library of Berlin, which the
University library has been receiving
for a number of years, are to be filed
in a special cabinet at the libiary
where they will be useful for biblio-
graphical reference. On account of
certain differences in the style of en-
try between these foreign cards and
those issued by the Library of Con-
gress and the John Crerar Library, the

was the subject of a lecture by Profes-
sor Herbert Cross of the fine arts fac-
ulty to the Women's League yesterday
afternoon. The lecture was illustrated
by slides, many of which were taken
by Professor Cross himself. The lec-
ture was well attended.
Gophers may bolt the conference and
swing with Michigan. The question
will probably be decided at the Janu-
ary meeting of the conference in which
several big matters will come up.
Will Irwin Speaks to Alumni.
Will Irwin, formerly of Collier's
Weekly, and one of the most noted
story tellers in the United States, gave
some untold tales at a smoker held last
evening, by the University of Michigan
Club of New York City.
Many other lively speeches were
made by the old "grads," and Michigan
songs were furnished by the Universi-
