CHORUS TO TANGO
IN PARIS STYLES
Peg top skirts and tango dresses of
the latest model will be seen at the
1914 Michigan Union opera. The bal-
let dresses, which have been renovat-
ed and made over for nearly all of the
other shows, have been discarded and
the 32 men in the chorus will promen-
ade in slit skirts, with all the varie-
ties commended by Paris.
Tryouts for the chorus positions
will be held at the Union at 7:00
o'clock Tuesday night, when the men
will be tested in singing and dancing.
The terpsichorean art will be practic-
ed differently, as much couple dancing
will take the place of the broiler
Robert Braun, '14E, who has charge
of the costumes, has visited houses in
Chicago and St. Louis, and has many
attractive offers for fashionable
gowns. However, an agreement may
be made through a local firm to pro-
cure the outfits from New York. The
modern European setting necessitates
evening dress, and other conventional
attire for the many men characters in
the play, in contrast to the elaborate
trappings previously required in
operas of a mythical location.
The original copies of the music will
be used at the tryout "Tuesday night,
and the pieces will be sent to the
printer for finishing in the form of
both scores and sheet music. The win-
ning poster, and those receiving hon-
orable mention will be placed on dis-
play in a State street store soon.
On the whole the management is
encouraged with every part of the
play. Mr. Bert St. John was present
at the tryout Tuesday, and is es-
pecially optimistic, Ray Melton, '13,
who is the author, is well satisfied.
Armour nustitute Wins Chess Mach,
Armour Institute won first place,
at the second annual tournament con-
ducted by the Western Intercollegiate
Chess Association in Chicago, during
the holidays. Chicago University
scored second, and the University of
Illinois ranked third. Swarz, of the
winning team, proved a strong con-
tender, although the individual honors
were carried off by Stevenson, of Il-
Michigan was not represented in the
meet, as the arrangements were com-
pleted too late, to enable a delegation
to be sent. Plans for a match at Sas-
ter, inculding all the colleges in the
association are being considered.

cian may be appointed.
Sgyeral cases of contagious diseases

"11WDY FROSH" CAMPAIGN IS
FAVORED BY FRESH PHiARMICS.
Fresh pharmics decided to join the
freshman literary literary class in
their "howdy frosh" campaign, at a
cleass meeting yesterday afternoon.
This brings the entire class, with the
exception of fresh dents, who have
taken no action on.the invitation sent
them by fresh lits to become partici-
pants in the campaign, into the move-
ment to increase the acquaintence-
ship and class spirit of the freshmen.
Officers of the class are of the opin-
ion that there has been a falling off
in the spirit with which the campaign
was started. With this in mind, they
are planning "pep" sessions, in the
form of smokers and dinners, at which
appeals will be made to the yearlings
to push the movement through in such
a manner as to make it permanent.
PROFESSOR IDEN WILL RESUME
LECTURES AT BIBLE CHAIRS.
Construction work at the new uni-
versity power plant has been carried
on rapidly during the last month and
it is expected that the plant will be
in operation by April 1. The old
building will not go out of commission
at once, as certain changes in the
lighting and the heating systems will
make it necessary to transfer to the
new station gradually.
Most of the machinery has been set
up in place. The cross compound Cor-
liss engine, which will develop the
power for the electric generator, has
been put upon its foundation on the
upper floor of the new building. The
furnaces and the boilers, together with
the parabolic overhead receptacle for
coal, have been completed.
The three and a half ton traveling
crane, employed for unloading coal
from the cars, stands ready for use.
Below it, concrete is being poured in-
to the forms for the piers that will
support the track of the new electric
railroad. On the south side of Wash-
ington street the abutment for the
railroad bridge has just been erected.
Grading along the right of way has
been suspended temporarily because
of the cold weather. The fifteen
ton ash collector, projecting over the
tracks on the west side of the build-
ing, is finished. The ashes from the .
furnaces will be swept by vacuum
pressure into the huge receptacle, sift-
ed, and emptied into the cars on the
Two concrete driveways have been
laid leading up to two special en-
trances that will be used chiefly for

ways are three feet lower than the

POSSIBILITIES FOR PARIS.
The Botanical Garden and Arbore-
tum, which is the joint property of the
university and the City of Ann Arbor
is a most perfect site for a park, and
arboretum, but the qualities which
make it most desirable as an arbore-
tum render it almost useless as a bo-
tanical garden, according to Prof.
Aubrey Tealdi, of the landscape de-
Professor Tealdi has outlined plans
for the arboretum, through which he
hopes to make it a showplace for all
the native trees and shrubs of the
state of Michigan. The general plan
is to plant the knolls and hills, and to
leave the valleys open. Itwill take a
number of years to develop the park
according to Professor Tealdi.
The roads and roadsides will be
placed in order during the current
year to prevent further washing away;
some thinning will be done, so as to
open up several exceptionally pretty
views of the river and drives. Corner
posts have already been authorized to
mark the irregular boundaries.

LIT FACULTY TO CONSIDER
CHANGE IN LIT-MEDIC R LES.
Dean J. R. Effinger yesterday an-
nounced a special meeting of the fac-
ulty of the literary department, to be
held tomorrow night for the purpos.*
of discussing the proposed revision of
the rules governing the six-year com-
bined lit-medic course.
A proposition looking to a change
of these rules was taken up a year
ago by the faculty, but definite action
was at that time postponed for twelve
months. At the previous session the
matter of the opposition to the present
rules which give to a student a de-
gree of B.S. for two years work in
the literary department, was taken up.
Dean Effinger yesterday expressed the
belief that a solution of the problem
would be presented at the Monday
meeting and that it would meet with
the approval of the faculties of both
