An added feature of the all-lit dance
is afternoon will be solos from aj
xophone trio which has been secured
r the event. The dance will be a
ature affair throughout, interclass

st, stagdom, and all the events which
ve made past all-lit dances popular.
Provision has been m'ade for a record

A bright comedy, presented with all
the vim and dash of a professional
company was the unanimous verdict
.of the audience that witnessed the pro-
duction of John Tobin's "The Honey-
non," presented last evening in Sarah
'Caswell Angell hall by the Oratorical
The dialogue was clever, the cos-
-tumes beautiful in their 18th century
splendor, and everything moved along;
without a hitch of any kind. The rus-
tic dance, a roundelay by the peasant
couples was easily the feature of the
production, but everyone rendered
their respective parts in faultless style.
To pick the brightest star from the.
cast, would indeed be hard, but Louis
Eich, in the role of the Duke, the wom-
-an tamer,displayed talent seldom seen
-outside the professional ranks, and'
the rest of the cast fully equaled the
-work of the leading man.
Viewed from a financial standpoint,.
the performance wPs a decided suc-
cess, and already movements are on
:foot to reproduce it in the Whitney
theater at some date in the near future.
Several of the officers of the Associa-
'tion are known to be in favor of the
scheme, and it is almost certain that
.another performance will take place.

r The Alliance will convene in Ann

over its strongest rival, Illinois, by a

Telegram From Harvard Announces
Fact to!a~azba*enatry
Word was recently received by the
university observatory that a new star
-in the region of Eta Geminorum, was
.iscovered last week by Euebo, a Euro-
pean astronomer.
The news came from Kiel, Germany,
which is the distributing center of as-
tronomical news for Europe, to Har-
vard, the distributor for this country,
and then here. It is not known where
the astronomer was working when he
made js discovery. With the aid of
the large, new spectrograph, Prof. R.
H. Curtiss, of the observatory, has
made five photographs of the star. A
study of these shows that the spectrun
is similar to that of any new star at
its greatest brilliancy.
A deputation of Y. M. C. A. workers,,
consisting of W. H. Tinker, religious
work director; F. I. Olmstead, William
Mauer, and Victor Jose, left yester-
day for Milan, Michigan, where they
will spend the week end, holding con-
ferences and .working 'up enthusiasm
for bible meetings.
The class in course 1 in chemical.
engineering and other engineers in-
terested in chemistry and metallurgy,
left for Detroit early this morning.'
The following plants will be inspect-
ed: Detroit Iron and Steel Co;, Semet-,
Solvay Coke Oven Plant, Michigan"
Malleable Iron Co., Monarch Steel'
Casting Co., and Detroit Seamless"
Steel Tubes Co.
The trip is so arraniged that those'
who care to may leave for Ann Arbor
at 5:05 o'clock in the afternoon. 1
Craftsmen Will Hear Detroit Speaker1
An exemplification of the "Lodge ofi
Sorrows"was conducted by the Crafts-1
men, an, organization of student Ma-4
sons of the university, at a regulari
meeting held last night. It was decid-
ed to enterain William Atkinson, an
Episcopal clergyman of Detroit, nextl
Saturday at the regular meeting andc
listen to an address which he will give
at that time. A dance will be giveni
by the society shortly after the springc

Michigan Daily.
The "Alumnus" pointed out many
things that we undergraduates have
shut our eyes to. In order to appear
'satisfied' we have justified our present
'boycotted' position by 'mud slinging'
and evading the real issue.
The Michigan Daily again points to
the impossibility of a return to the
Western Conference and again fails
to give a single reason for arriving at
such a conclusion. What may I ask
are 'onerous' conditions that beset the
conference? Outside of the training
table are not our rules practically sim-
ilar to those of the conference?
Challenges Daily Stand.
What does The Michigan Daily mean
by the conference as it is now situated?
Does The Michigan Daily mean to in-
sinuate that several of the conference
schools will drop out merely to make
room for the University of Michigan.
Illinois and Minnesota are grumbling
about the rules relating to summer
baseball. Michigan has the same
rules on that subject as the conference.
If. Michigan is to stand in favor of
summer baseball, well enough, but
that fs another question. The mere
fet that the 'situation within the con.
ference is not ideal' is no reason for
assuming that Michigan would not be
benefitted by a return to the 'fold.'
What, may I ask, do we have to brag
about in theway of a football schedule
which The Michigan Daily appears to
thnk is not so bad.
At only one game this year did we
hear a single healthy yell by the sup-
porters of the' opposing side and that
game was the one with 0. 5. U. Con-
trast our situation with that within
the conference. Over three thousand
Illinois students with a brass band of
one hundred pieces invaded Marshall
Field to cheer the wearers of the Or-
ange and Blue. Over twenty-five thous-
and people witnessed the struggle be-
tween the Maroons and the Gophers.
On the same day that Michigan met
Nebraska, Kansas played Missouri at
Columbia, a town of ten thousand in-
habitants, and outdrew the crowd at
Lincoln by over $3,000.00.
When the Maroons meet the Purple,
the crowds are almost equally divided.
It is at such games one learns to en-
joy a real football game.
Are We Satisfied?
Do we have anything like that to
boast of? Has not The Michigan Daily
and the student body in general voiced
the sentiment 'that Michigan is satis-
fied? Have we not marshalled facts
and figures to prove our satisfaction?
Have we not boasted that the attend-
ance at this year's Penn game was
greater than that at the Michigan-Wis-
consin game of 1905? Have we not in
every possible way sought to belittle
the Western Conference, and thereby
evade the real issue? Have we ever
attempted to ask ourselves the real
reason why we did not return? Is it
not a fact that we are so prejudiced
that we do not know just why we are
left out in the cold? Wherein have we
been benefitted by our eastern afilli-
ations? Who do we play out there
that gives us an honorable plane in the
eyes of the eastern world? As a man
is known by the company he keeps, so
is a university, and Michigan is now
enjoying the reputation of some of her
present rivals. If we cannot boast of
our football schedule, what may be
said of our baseball and track sched-
ules? We have not had a single inter-
collegiate meet since the football sea-
(entinued on page 4.)

Michigan has three men, two of
whom are graduates of the university,
and one of the agricultural college,
on the pure food board of the federal
government. Dr. A. S. Mitchell, '87,
pharmic, formerly chief of the St. Paul,
Minn., laboratory of the bureau of
chemistry, has temporarily assumed
office to fill the vacancy caused by the
resignation of Dr. Harvey W. Wiley.
Dr. R. E. Doolittle, formerly of De-
troit, a graduate of M. A.4 C., remains
acting chief of the bureau and chair-
man of the board. Frederick L. Dun-
lap, '92, is also a member of the board.
Mr. Clarence A. Lightner of Detroit
gave the first of a series of lectures on
"Medical Jurisprudence" yesterday af-
ternoon in the law building. His. talk
was chiefly introductory in its nature,
explaining the relation between law
and medicine. Mr. Lightner will con-
tinue these lectures each Friday after-
noon at three o'clock.
Mr. E. S. Rogers of Chicago finished
the series of lectures on "Trade Marks
and Unfair Trade" which he has been
delivering to the members of the law
department this week, yesterday.

Arrangements commensurate with
the number of visitors, who will attend
the Seyenty-Ffth Anniversary'Celebra-
tion, are being made by the committee
in charge. Contracts were signed yes-
terday with the J. C. Goss Company,
Detroit, to furnish a four pole canvas
tent with a seating capacity of 5,000
to be used during commencement week.
The tent will be 110 feet in diameter
