The management of the Comedy
Club authorized the announcement
last night that Prof. Albert A. Stanley
had finally consented to write the in-
cidental music for the production of
"The Scarecrow."
Prof. Stanley has had the matter
under consideration for a number of
weeks and came to his decision last
night. Requests for his services in a
similiar capacity are constantly re-
ceived from all parts of the country.
He but recently completed the music
for the "Commemoration Ode" to be
sung at the bicentennial of the found-
ing of Providence, R. I. -
"It will be more or less a matter of
difficulty," said Prof. Stanley, "to com-
pose music in keeping with the pe-
culiar situations which arise. in the
play. This will be particularly true
to the 'Love Song of Lord Ravens
bane,' which I understand is a recita-
tive b3 a soulless creature endowed
with human faculties."
SIt is a striking coincidence that
Prof. S anley was sought out five years
ago by the author of "The Scarecrow,"

John M. Cottrell, '14A, was announc-
ed yesterday as winner of the poster
contest for the 1914 Michigan Union
opera. The drawing is fully up to the
standard of the posters for other op-
eras, and those in charge of the ad-
vertising state that they are satisfied
with the design both as a poster, and
cover for the score and sheet music.
Cottrell will receive a prize of $10.00,
and the second prize of two tickets tO
the opera will go to L. M. Kishlar, '17E,
C. W Ditchy, '15A, will receive the
third award of one opera ticket. Cot-

The work was then undertaken by
the new President, E. O. Haven, whc
afterwards became a Methodist bishop.
His qualifications were also slender.
In 1869, B. F. Cocker, a notable Meth-
odist pulpit orator, was appointed to
the professorship, which he held till
his death, in 1883. Cocker was a man
of remarkable personality, but without
formal education. He achieved much
popularity with the students and the
general public, and played a promi-
nent, though not always judicial part
in the life of the university. His
teaching appears to have been of the
conventional eighteenth-century type
-a misfortune inasmuch as the con-
troversy over doctrines of Darwin was
afoot. Approaching the problems
from the standpoint of an outworn
theology, Cocker failed to appreciate
them and, on the whole, contributed
nothing to philosophy.
George S. Morris, who was appoint-
ed to a second professorship, in 1881,
had been connected with the universi-
ty for eleven years in the chair of
Modern Languages.. He was the first
layman to achieve a philosophical pro-
fessorship and, Tappan not excepted,
was the first incumbent who had the
standing and thorough training of a
specialist. He is one of the really
significant names in the history of
philosophical thought in the United
States, and from him, as from Tappan
before him, the distinction of the de-
partment may be said to date. Morris
died at forty-eight, in 1889, a major
