"Dr. Newell Dwigtt Hillis' lecture
in University Hall tonight is one of
the best on the program of the Orator-
ical association this year," said Prof.
Thomas C. Trueblood, of the Oratory
department, yesterday. This lecture
will begin promptly at 8:00 o'clock to-
The subject, Dr. Hillis will speak on,
is "The America of Today and. To-
morrow." This lecture, which he has
already delivered a number of times,
has proved to be very popular, and has
won much praise for the orator.
Dr. Hillis is an entertaining and in-
spiring speaker, and perhaps the high-
est priced lyceum lecturer. In the
past 17 years he has delivered more
than 1,250 lectures, appearing in every
state and territory except one, besides
his lecture tours in Canada. He is pas-
tor of the Plymouth church, Brook-

The much-abused tango has at last
found admittance into the ranks of the
foresters. At a meeting of theFor-
estry club Wednesday night, the tango
artists won over the straight two-
step and waltz advocates and the an-
nual dance of the club will consist en-
tirely of the later steps. The vote
stood as follows: for tango, 17; for a
mixed program, 10; for the two-step
and waltz, eight.
The club also voted to take space -in
the 1914 Michiganensian.
Fred Phinney, a laborer formerly
employed by the university, was con-
victed of forgery in the circuit court

James Craig Watson, one of his for-
mer pupils, was selected to fill his
position. Between 1863 and 1877 Doc-
tor Watson discovered 22 minor plan-
ets. During this period he made sev-
eral astronomical journeys, notably to
Iowa in 1869, to Sicily in 1870,
to Wyoming in 1878, and on
the transit of Venus expedition to
China in 1874. The remainder of his
life was spent in an endeavor to dis-
cover a major planet between Mercu-
ry and the sun, in whose existence he
firmly believed. His chief contribu-
tion to astrtonomical writings was
"Theoretical Astrtonomy." In 1879 he
resigned to go to the University of
Wisconsin, where he died shortly after.
Prof. Mark W. Harrington succeed-
ed as director of the observatory. He
had served on the United States Coast
Survey in Alaska, and had been a pro-
fessor in the Cadet School of the For-
eign Office at Pekin. During this time
Prof. J. M. Schaeberle, '76E, and Prof.
W. IV. Campbell, '86, were associated
with him. Both men later went to
Lick Observatory, where Doctor Camp-
bell is now director. Professor Har-
rington resigned in 1891 and became
chief of the United States Weather Bu-
reau for five years. Mr. William J.
Hussey took Director Harrington's
place for one year, and then resigned
to go to Leland Stanford Junior Uni-
From 1892 to 1905 Prof. Asaph Hall,
Jr., held the directorship. He was the
discoverer of the satellites of Mars,
and he also made important observa-
tions with the meridian circle.'
Since 1905, Prof. Wililam J. Hussey
has been director of the observatory.
Under his direction vast improve-
ments have been made, and several
telescopes have -been constructed. In
1911 Doctor Hussey was made Direct-
or of the Universidad Nacional de La
Plata, with the stipulation that he di-
vide his time between the two observ-
atories. At the same time Prof. R. H.
Curtiss became assistant director of
the observatory.
Paul Delavan, '12, who has been with
Professor Hussey at the Universidad

In a petition to be considered at the
meeting of the senate council
Monday night, the management of the
1914 Michigan Union opera asks that
permission be granted to give the show
a week earlier than last year. As orig-
inally planned, the opera would be
given Mlarch 25-28. If the petition is
granted, however, the annual produc-
tion will appear the last four days of
the preceding week.
Although nothing has been definitely
decided in regard to an opera trip, it is
probable that the show will go to
Chicago. It was thought that the op-
era men might be allowed to make an
extensive tour to various points in the
state. However, the show will proba-
bly not be allowed to make a more
extensive trip than last year although
alumni at 'various places are anxious
to see the performance.
Cast tryouts will be held at the Un-
ion at 7:00 o'clock Tuesday
night if Mr. Bert St. John is able
to be present. Aspirants not present
at the first trial held before vacation,
will not be allowed to try out at this
time. The 17 cast parts will be filled
from the list which has been reduced
to about 25. All of the men are urged
to learn their lines accurately before

Tryouts for the chorus positions
will be held at the Union at 7:00
o'clock Tuesday, January 20. Thirty-
two places will be filled. Less of the
ballet style of dancing will be used in
the show this year, the old style being
substituted by considerable couple
dancing. Some. of the chorus aspirants
have been practicing for either a man's
or girl's part, and at the tryout there
will be partners who will take either
part. The tango and other dances of
the day will be used to test the men
for their dancing proficiency. They
will also be tested for singing ability,
as well as for grace and general adapt-
The posters wil be due at the Union
at 7:00 o'clock Tuesday night. About
fifteen men have been working on the
competitive designs during the vaca-
tion. At a meeting Wednesday, the
committee, consisting of Librarian
Theodore Koch, Prof. H. R. Cross and
Mr. Wilfred B. Shaw will choose the
drawing which is to be used as a post-
er and as a cover for the opera score.
A prize of $10.00 will be awarded to
the winner.
