For the first time in the history of
Michigan Union operas the manage-
ment has seen fit to publish this year's
libretto in the original, which, how-
ever, differs from the production in
several respects on account of the
practicability that the staging of this
kind of play demands. The book will
contain the complete lyrics of the
opera as well as the entire libretto,
and the whole will be bound in attract-
ive brown covers portraying old Ra-
meses resplendent in a robe of gold.
"I am very glad to know that the
Union intends to print the 'Awakened
Rameses' in book form," said Prof.
Louis A. Strauss when seen last even-
ing. "In my judgment, the libretto

of this year's opera is so creditable
to the student body that it well deserv-
es the honor. In all important re-
spects, Mr. Hudnut's play is in advance
of previous efforts. The plot is sim-
ple, but original and effective, and the.
literary workmanship is admirable.
The lyrics have a lightness and spark-
le seldom found nowadays on the com-
ic opera stage. The tone of the entire
play is commendably refined. I am
particularly pleased to see this year's
play printed because it will be helpful
to future playwrights, and I think the
students in general will find much to
enjoy in reading the book that will
escape them in the actual perform-
ance."
Prof. F. N. Scott believes that "The
Awakened Rameses" is clever enough
to deserve being put in print. "The
plot is original and ingenious; the di-
alogue clean, witty and restrained; and
the lyrics both clever and technically
correct," said Prof. Scott yesterday.
"The production will compare favor-
ably with any of the plays or operas
that have been put out by the eastern
colleges."
The book will go on sale Wednesday
morning at Sheehan's and Wahr's.
Copies may be obtained at the Whitney
theater at every performance.

(Special to the Michigan Daily)
"Let the Conference come to Michi-
gan" was the unanimous attitude of
those present at the Detroit Alumni
banquet and smoker in Detroit last
evening, at which the Varsity football
squad and band were guests. Much
feeling concerning the western football
situation was shown by those who
spoke, and it was continually and for-
cibly evident that Alonzo A. Stagg was:
not a favorite among Wolverine sup-'
porters.
Attorney-General Kuhn was master
of ceremonies at the smoker, while
Judge "Bob" Thompson, of New York
state, was the principal speaker of the
eveuing. "Bottles" Thomson, captain
of next year's team, and "Conk" Conk-
lin, leader of the 1911 Varsity, were al-
so called on for speeches.
In general, the speakers were of they
opinion that Michigan should favori
the resumption of participation in
western football, but not at the cost of
conceding to the present demands of
the Conference "boogy."P

ately called the opera number. The
cover, by Kenneth Welch, '14 E, is
done in brown along the Coles Phillips
line of drawings. It is a new version
of "The Awakened Rameses." Welch
also contributes a series of drawings
depicting the transformation of the
student into the ballet dancer. The
double page drawing of this number
shows an Egyptian mummy coming to
life in the museum. Harold B. Abbott,
'13, is the artist. Melvin Wagner, in
a series of pictures, chronicles some
of the events that have transpired on
the campus prior to the appearance of
the student directory. The frontis-
piece, "A student," is contributed by a
new artist, "Fritz".Bade, '15.
Harold P. Scott, '14, in a story enti-
tled "Bric-a-brac," furnishes the prin-
cipal literary feature. Lyman L. Bry-
son, '10, contributes a poem apropos of
Mr. Crane's comments on college stu-
dents. Other literary contributors are
Albert L. Weeks and Franklin P. Ad-
ams, both graduates of the university.
Among the humor contributors are
.F. M. Church, .George Vorys, Leonard
Cline and Milton N. Simon.

MEMORIAL TO THE LIVING.
"Die. and be honored" seems to be
the order at the University of Wash-
ington. The regents have just forbid-
den the unveiling of a .medallion of
Prof. Edmond S. Meany in Meany Hall
becauseof a rule against honoring any,
member of the faculty by the erection
of a statue, bust, or medallion during+
the honored man's lifetime. Since thet
medallion was the gift of the sculptor,
the Washington Daily very gently re-;
marks that "it will probably be kept
until the time comes when it may bz
unveiled without encroaching on the
ironclad rules of the regents.
