At a meeting of the judges for the
Michigan Union opera poster contest,
held yesterday morning, the drawing
submitted by Leo N. Burnett, '14, was
picked as the winner. Burnett will
receive the first prize of $10, and his
design will be emblazoned on the
prints used to advertise the annual
opera. Prof. William C. Titcomb and
Librarian Theodore W. Koch constitut-
ed the committee which made the
award..
Burnett's poster represents a knight
and lady fair on board a more or less
rampant charger. The valiant gen-
tleman is draped in a becoming suit
of iron, while the clinging creature at
his side is garbed in a flowing gown
of old rose hue. The back-ground of
the picture is dark olive, with the
lettering in black and white.
Second Place Won by "Bill" Fanning.
Second honors in the contest go to
William S. Fanning, '13E, whose effort,
while rgossessing much artistic merit,
was adjudged as hardly available for
advertising purposes. Fanning's
drawing pictures an armored knight,
also proudly astride a prancing steed,
and holding erect a deadly spear. On
the left of the poster, the back-ground
is panelled to reveal a glimpse of a
green forest with a feudal castle on a
precipice beyond. Green, yellow
and blue are the colors used. It is
probable that Fanning's production
will be used on the sheet music for
the opera.
Two tickets for the opera will be
awardedras second prize, while the
third prize of one ticket will go to
Herbert L. Burgess, '13E, whose entry
was judged as highly creditable. Hon-
orable mention was awarded to the
contribution handed in by William G.
Sprague, '15E.
According to Prof. Titcomb, one of
the judges in the contest who has;
served in this capacity for several
years, the poster picked for first place
is of exceptional 'worth. "Burnett's
drawing is practically perfect for post-
er purposes," said Prof Titcomb yes-
terday. "The lettering is especially
clear and attractive, while the design
is without a fault, and almost equal to
professional work."
The winning posters will not be put
on exhibition until after exams, at
which time the name of the 1913 opera
will also be announced.

Expense of Social Function
Better Every Feature
of Event.

REFRESHMENT PLANS ARE NEW.
At a meeting of the Junior hop com-
mittees yesterday afternoon plans for
the big function neared completion.
Added features in every department
will make the annual affair a bigger
and more representative event than
it has ever been before. Already near-
ly $300.00 more has been spent in prep-
aration for the hop than at this time
last year. The added expense is ex-
pected to make every part of the hop
more distinctive. At present almost
as many have signified their intei-,
tion of attending the hop as attended
last year.
Invitations Are Novw on Hand.
Invitations have been, received from
E. A. Wright of Philadelphia and may
be received at the F3eta Theta Pi
house from Wendell.' Smith, chairman
of the invitations. committee. Admis-
sion will be more than last year on ac-
count of tne added expense. The price
was discussed yesterday but will not
tre definitely decided upon until next
meeting.
The arrangements committee re-
ported in regard to the contract for
refreshments which was let Saturday
to Mrs. M. O. Smith of Detroit. This
important part of the hop will be;
greptly improved. The Detroit cat-
erers will serve 200 at one time and
lots were drawn for places in being
served. According to the scheme de-
cided unon yesterday there will 'be

For the first time in the history of'
university dramatics, a Michigan Un-
ion opera will go on tour this year,I
permission having been granted by the
senate council yesterday afternoon for
the 1913 production to be given in
Detroit on April 19. As this date
comes soon after the resumption of
school following the Easter vacation,
it is expected that th ose who partici-
pate in the presentatlion and manage-
ment of the opera on its Detroit trip
will not be compelled to interrupt
their studies materially, this having
been one of the points which has pre-
vented the operas in former years
from going out of town.
The Detroit performance, it is ex-
pected, will be given in the new Wash-
ington theater in that city. This play-
house is now in process of construc-
tion, and it is probable that the Union
opera will be the initial attraction on
its boards. The sale of seats and the
advertising for the Detroit presenta-
tion will be handled by the alumni as-
sociatiou of that city, which is spon-
sering the trip.
Tq Take Entire Production.
According to the General Chairman
Philip K. Fletcher, '13E, who with
President Edward G- Kemp, '14L, of
the Michigan Union, was in conference
with the senate council yesterday af-
ternoon, the entire 1913 production
will be carried to Detroit. Several
cars and coaches will be required to
transport the bevies of dimply dan-
seuses, stately choruEsmen and rollick-
some principals,, as well as the scen-1
ery and properties, for. the show.
It has been decided to call a meeting
of the men trying out for
reading roles in the opera for!
tomorrow evening. At this time
the selected tryouts, to whom
portions of the book to memorize for1
competitive rendition after exams. The
choruses will not be called out until
the beginning of next semester, at
which time active preparation for the
1913 performance will be commenced.
Y. M. C. A. Raises a Large Fund.
Officials of the city and the univer-
sity Y. M. C. A. have been conduct-
ing a canvass for funds which closes
this evening. An attempt is being
made to raise a total of $7,700, which
includes a fund for the Y. W. C. A.
as well. Last week $4,500 had been
collected, although not more than half
of those on the list had been solicited.
Wellington H. Tin)er, of the Univer-
sity. Christian association, said last
night that all were confident of their
ability to raise the necessary sum,
and present indications are that the
amount will exceed their expecta-

"The evils of public politics are
more often due to partisanship than to
dishonesty," said Governor Herbert S.
Hadley of Missouri in a lecture de-
livered last night in University Hall,
"and instead of having too much poli-
.tics it is my belief-that we have too
little. The great problem of our gov-
ernment today is to reconcile the rules
of business and the laws of men."
Governor Hadley's remarks cover-
ed the broad field of our political, in-
dustrial, and judicial systems; in
which he sketched the accomplish-
ments of the past, the problems of
the present, and the possible solutions
of the future.
In speaking of the influence of col-
leges in politics the speaker declared
they taught the doctrine that anything
whatever was preferable to running
for office, and that politics was an un-
worthy and unprofitable field.
"I am glad to know that Michigan
men are practicing what I preach,"
he said when informed that there
were more Michigan graduates in
Congress than those of any other in-
stitution. "I believe that college men
can best solve the questions which
are now before the country; involving,
as they do, principles of social and po-
litical science."
Governor Hadley refused to commit
himself upon questions of national
political significance, declaring that
his visit was social rather than pro-
fessional. His reminiscences of his pre-
vious visit to Ann Arbor as a member
of the victorious invading debating.
team from Northwestern University
were amusing in the extreme.
While in the city the governor was
the guest of Prof. H. E. Riggs, of the
engineering department, who was one
of his classmates at Kansas Universi-
ty. He was banqueted by Delta Sig-
ma Rho fraternity at the Union last
night, and left early this morning for
his home.
NEW POWER PLANT IS PUT
INTO OPERATION YESTERDAY
Turbines Will Generate 100 Kilowatts
For Local Supply and
Nearby Towns.
Marking the culmination of more
than a year's continuous iabor, the
Barton plant of the Eastern Michigan
Edison Co. was put into operation for
the first time yesterday, afternoon.
With the opening of the gates, the
water raced into the huge turbines,
setting the powerful generators in mo-
tion. Recent rains have greatly swol-~
len the Huron and the flood has been
pouring over the spillway of the new
dam for more than a week.
Gardner S. Williams, consulting en-
gineer in connection with the work,
announced last evening that the sta-
tion would be turning current into the
lines some time next week. It has a
capacity of 1,500 kilowatts, and will
help supply Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Dex-
ter, Ypsilanti, and other neighboring'
towns.
Canoeing on the new lale will be
facilitated by a path to the left of the
dam, while a windlass and rollers on
the right hand side will take care of
boats and heavier craft. A fishway will
empty into the tailrace, providing a
passage up and down stream for the
citizens of the Huron.

Change is Made to Aid Students
~ Making Elections For
Coming Semester.

In order that all students may have
ample time to arrange their next sem-
ester's elections, Registrar Hall's of-
fice will be open from Monday until
Friday during the first week of exam-
inations. His office hours will be from
9:00 o'clock to 12:00 and from 2:00
to 5:00 o'clock in the afternoon. A fee
of $1.00 will be charged for all blanks
not turned in by Friday. Students en-
rolled in combined courses will be
compelled to fill out blanks for each
department. Extra hour petitions
may be filed with the election blanks.
Freshman students will receive,
their blanks in rhetoric classes Thurs-
day and Friday. Those who make
changes in their courses must first
consult with Prof. Rankin, chairman
of -the committee on elections, who
will be in the registrar's office from
2:00 to 4:00 o'clock next week.
Will Try to Communicate With 0. S. U.
Attempts will be made at 11:00
o'clock tonight to communicate with
the Ohio State university wireless sta-
tion by the local plant. Although
talks are held almost daily with Cleve-
land stations, attempts to communi-
cate with the state university at Co-
lumbus have failed on account of the
weakness of their station. But as im-
provements have been made it is ex-
pected that the effort tonight will be
successful.

Iut Six Memb )ers of Prof. Turner's
(la 0pposo 'New Method,
Satisfied with the merits of the hon-
or system as proved in a recent "blue-
book," 275 members of Prof. E. R.
Turner's lecture class in English his-
tory voted yesterday to use the system
in the final examination. Opposed to
the introduction of the new method,
six of the freshmen elected to take the
examination under the supervision of°
the instructors, there -being three
more aaainst it this time than when
it was first introduced.
Prof. Turner is highly enthusiastic.
over the plan, and optimistic as to its
future on the campus and with the
sysiem in active use among his own
classes and those of Prof. C. O. Davis;,
he believes that the good results of
*the present work will be shown next;
year In a wider adoption of the honor
system by the classes all over the
campus.

Charles Barton, '14E, Varsity foot-
ball player and member of the Varsity
track squad, has tendered his res-
ignation to the engineering depart-
ment of the university. If Barton per-
sists in his signified intentions of giv-
ing up his university work, Michigan
will lose a valuable athlete, and the
friends of the lengthy gridiron star
are doing their best to deter Barton
from taking the step.
It is understood that Barton desires
to give up his work in the university
in order that he may enter business,
though it is possible that he may re-
turn to the university at some future
date to resume his studies. Barton
has announced to his friends, howev-
er, that he will not finish this semes-
ter's work.
Barton made his football "M" dur-
ing the season just closed when he
filled. the position of Varsity end. Bar-
ton became popular with the Michigan
football supporters because of his abil-
ity in receiving forward passes, and
in this line of gridiron play he proved
most valuable to the Michigan team.
Barton was ineligible for the 1911 Var-
sity team, but in 1910 he was a mem-
ber of the 1914 All-Fresh team playing
the entire ,season at the center's post.
In track work, Barton's specialty
was the pole vault, and although his
weight kept him from being a marvel
in the art of leaping the bar with the
aid of the long stick, he managed to
set up some good marks, especially in
the indoor meets.
