Pedagogues From All Over the
State Assemble Here For
Big Convention
Schoolmasters and scientists from
all over Michigan will gather in Ann
Arbor today for the 47th meeting of
the Schoolmasters' Club, and the 18th
meeting of the Michigan Academy of
Science. The Scientists will open at
1 o'clock this afternoon with a coun-
cil meeting in the geological labora-
tory and at 2:30 o'clock the general
session will open in the west physics
lecture room with th ntial ad-
dress by Prof. W. E. n "Plant
The Schoolmasters" & ened last
night with an illustrated lecture by
Prof. F. W. Kelsey on "The Excava-
tions and Discoveries at Cyrene in
1910" in the high school auditori-
um. The classical conference will
meet at 1:45 this afternoon in the lec-

Third Act to Have Romantic
Setting of Fountains
and Palms
While the March breezes whistle
without, the stage of the Whitney the-
ater will present a French conserva-
tory with all its natural beauties when
the curtain rises on the third act of
"Le Monde ou l'on S'ennuie" next
Thursday evening. Soft lights, the
fragrance of flowers and the stately
beauty of waving palms will be trans-
ported over the moonlights, while the
soft splash of a fountain will form an
accompaniment for the musical ac-
cents of the actors.
To the average person, the introduc-
tion of a conservatory on the stage
means little but to the producer it is
a real trial. Scenery that would ad-
equately portray a bower of plants is'
far too expensive for an am-'
ateur performance. So the manage-
ment turned to the realistic.. Genuine
palms and plants will form the setting'
and the work of preparing the stage'
for this scene will necessitate the'
employment .of many property men.
Probably nearly 100 palms will be us-
ed in making the stage resemble a real
conservatory, and numerous plants'
will have to be placed in separate
All this means endless work, but the
effect will be attained and the audi-
ence treated to a rather original "set,"
as well as an exceedingly artistic one.

Joe Parker's known to every Mich-
igan alumnus who has been graduated
for the last eighteen years and fam-
ous throughout the entire country,
will soon be a thing of the past. The
little low store on Main street with its
mural decorations of table tops on
which are cut the initials of many a
former student, and among which can
be found the names of men already
famous, will be torn down in May. In,
its place, a modern three story store,
building will be erected for S. S.
Kresge, the 5 and 10 cent store mag-
While Joe will not go out of business
and expects to open another place on
some different site, the razing of the
store will mark the passing of a re-
minder of the "good old days." Ann
Arbor -is full of traditional spots, yet
Joe's probably contains more remem-
brances of the pest than any one of the

following to respond to toasts:

freshman was ever permitted to cross
its threshold unless under the cover
of a disguise. There are many tales
of the forcible ejection of first year
men from the "sacred" precincts, and
many stories of the battles that were
waged between the freshmen and the
sophomores when the former tried to
gain admittance on Cap night.
To the alumnus too, this proved a
landmark and it was hard to enter,

without finding several groups of'for-

days over the senior table and scratch-
