accessories of this year's play are

Mr. Bert St. John, the popular coach
of student dramatics for a number of
years 'past, is in Ann Arbor to start
on his professional coaching and

dramatic action of the players.
Much more attention will be given
to the play this year on account of its
added possibilities in the dramatic
art. With the three more weeks
which remain before the "first night,"
correct attention will be given especi-
ally to stage business and a master,

As last year the Comedy club will
feature a special souvenir supplement
of The Michigan Daily Sunday, De-
cember 7. It will feature cuts of all
the seventeen players who will take
part in the play, and a number of
stories appertaining to the Comedy'
club of the present and the past as
,well as an introduction of the galaxy
of new and old Thespians who will

first production, of "Money" that has
ever been given here by an all'stu-

Jeffersonian debaters clash with the
representatives of Alpha Nu this ev-
ening in the first important forensic
contest of the year. From the show-
ing made this evening, and 'in the
other interdepartmental event Friday
between Webster and Adelphi, the men
who are to represent Michigan on the
platform of the Central Debating
League will be picked.
This year's question is "Resolved
that the plan of banking proposed by
the National Monetary Commission
should be adopted by Congress." Mich-
igan's two Varsity teams will meet
Chicago and Northwestern in Janu-
ary, contesting with the former insti-
tution in Ann Arbor,'and the latter in
Evanston on the evening of Jan. 17.
Through the generosity of R. E. Olds,
of Lansing, the customary testimonials
of $50.00 will again be available this
year for the honor debaters.h
The teams are composed of the fol-
lowing men: Jeffersonian: L. S. Hul-
bert, '14L;" B. J. Jonkman, '13L; W. T.
Bie, '13L; and D. F. Melhorn, '14L; Al-
pha Nu: L. H. Dunten, '14; E. W. Mc-'
Farland, '13; F. W. Moore, '15; and
E. W. Bailey, alternate. The judges
are: Judge V. H. Lane, Prof. J. H.
Drake, H. C. Hayes, C. W. Snedecor,
and M. J. Cavanaugh. Ralph M. Sny-
der, '14L, president of the Oratorical
association will probably preside.
The interdepartmental debates this
year will be open to the public with-
out charge. Tonight the contest will
be held in room B of the law building,
and will begin at 8:00 o'clock.

"Kopenickerstrasse 120," the elev-

is attractive to the students of Ger-

their wish to take part is any indica-
tion. Any who have not yet signed
up and who wish to try out may hand
in their names to Lawrence Clayton,
president of the Verein any time be-
fore Friday of this week. The tryouts
will be held Friday afternoon in room
203 U. H. and will be under the di-
.rection of a committee composed of
Profs. Max Winkler, E. A. Boucke, C.
E, Eggert, and J. W. Scholl. As in
other years, each candidate will be
given a selection from the play itself
to read, thus showing his ability to
pronounce German. Twenty persons
will be selected for the cast.
Several copies of the play will be or-
dered for the library and it will be
read in the German classes as here-

When asked what had transpir

After much discussion and corres-
pondence between old graduates and
university officials, it has at last been
definitely dedided that the standing
portion of the old medical building
must be razed.
For the past three or four years
this question has been given a lot of
thought and argument. After the
completion of the new medical build-
ing, it was proposed to tear down the
old structure and make room for oth-
er buildings. This called down' a
storm of protest from the alumni and
the authorities took the matter .under
advisement. Finally the alumni pre-
vailed and it had practically been set-
tied that the front, atleast was to be
kept intact. That was over a year ago
and the plans were being completed
when the building was visited by a
disastrous fire during the summer of
1911. The condition was thus impair-
ed to such an extent that the advisa-
bility of keeping the old structure was
;again questioned.
Few of the old buildings on the
campus are richer in traditions and
memories of student days of long ago,
and for this reason, alumni from all
parts of the country objected strongly
to its demolition. The graduates of
the college of medicine were especial-
ly earnest in their appeals that the
historic structure should be saved
from a standpoint of mere sentiment.
With this end in view, it was plan-
ned to rejuvenate the remaining por-
tion, but after careful investigation
it was found to be impractical. Accord-
ingly, the standing walls will be torn
down in the spring, and another one
of the few remaining landmarks will
be a thing of the past.
At present, there is no prospect of
a new building being erected on the
