PRICE FIVE CEINTS
NEW TOUCHES IN
Choruses of "Contrarie Mary" Will Be
Characterized by Intricate
Figures and Effective
SCENES ARE LAID AROUND
OLD TIME ENGLISH COLLEGE
Principals of Cast Practice Regularly
And Display Great Acting
If present indications may be trust-
ed, intricate figures and effective en
masse singing will characterize the
work of the choruses in "Contrarie
Mary." At the regular rehearsal for
the 1913 opera, held last night at the
Union, the incidental "Business" in act
one was practiced by the dancing and
singing choruses, and the management
feels that the long course of training
which the chorusmen have undergone
is already showing results which
eclipse all previous efforts of the terp-
sichorean, variety in Union produc-
When the curtain goes up for the
first performance of "Contrarie Mary,"
Wednesday evening, March 26, the au-
dienee will witness the students of
Winkfield College, England, participat-
ing in dancing which smacks suspi-
ciously of the Bostonese brand. Wink-
field.has won the jousting tourney, and
joy is on every brow,-at least accord-
ing to the stage directions. The dance
is followed by soma. of the most elab-
orate chorus aneuvers ever attempt-
ed in a T~lnion opera.
Advanced as the chorusme. are in
their part of the producti, the prin-
cipals are showing fully as much abil-
ity. Practically aU of the lines in the
show have be memorized by the cast,
and the amainder of the time will be
devqted to polishing up the action. The
relation of the speaking portions of
the opera to the chorus work was ex-
pia4ned to those taking part last night,
but complete rehearsals of both cast
and ehorus will not be held until some-
COSMOPOLITAN CLUB LAUNCHES
CAMPAIGN TO BOOST MICHIGAN.
In the hope of bringing more for-
eigners to the university, the Corda-
Fritres Cosmopolitan club has launch-
ed a campaign in many foreign lands.
W. M. Johnston, '13, corresponding sec-
retary, has arranged to forward de-
scriptive literature concerning the
university to all parts of the world.
Johnston is compiling a list of ad-
dresses of students in attendance at
various European universities who are
contemplating studying at American
colleges and he will correspond with
these men in the hope of inducing
them to come to Michigan.

er at the Union tonight for the regular
Friday evening card party. Five hun-
dred will be the game featured. Other

t Prof.Turner Wants New Lecture Roo
Prof. E. R. Turner, of the history de-
partment, will attempt to obtain Uni-
versity Hall for use as a lecture room
t for his class in English history next
year. He desires to make the change
Y on account of the poor acoustic prop-
t erties of Sarah Caswell Angell hall, in
which the lectures are now given.
LITS TO HAVE UNIQUE DANCE.
"Altitude Hop" is Name of Party to be
Given by Four Classes.
The "Altitude Hop" is the latest in-
novation in dancing circles. What is
it? Nothing but a startling name for
the annual all lit party which will be
held Saturday afternoon, March 22 in
Barbour gymnasium. Even members
of the committee in charge are not
sure of the exact significance of the
name, but they partially indicate its
meaning when they declared that the
affair will be open to all Tits from the
highest down to the lowest class.
Special favor and feature dances as
well as novel decorations are planned,
and, according to the name, the party
will be, it is said, at the top altitude of
the unusual. The price of admission
will be 35 cents and tickets may be
purchased next week from members of
the social committees of the four lit
IN BEST OF TRIM
14 Men Leave For East in Fine Fettle
and Trainer is Optimistic of
"JIMIE" CRAIG 1 BACK IN FORM
Entraining with fourteen athletes in
the top of good condition, and instill-
ed with the confidence of victory.
Trainer Farrell seemed far from blue
concerning the prospects of Michigan,
in the clash with the Syracuse track
men, when the special sleeper was
pulled out of the M. C. station last
night. The squad was accompanie l
by Varsity track manager, Don Uca--
A few members of the team were
out in suits yesterday, and those who
reported were worked lightly. Prac-
tice at Syracuse will only include the
men who will run on the circular
track, and they will put in their time
getting used to the corners, in the ef-
fort to offset the handicap of a strange
Trainer Farrell has studied the re-
ports from the Syracuse camp and will
aim to enter his men in the events
where their chances for the front po-
sitions are greatest. With that in view
he has entered Haimbaugh and Smith
in the mile, where rumor has it that
the opposition will be sadly lacking in
good material, and will enter only one
man in the hurdles where competition
will be keen and of a high order.
The bugbear in the shape of an in-
jured knee that threatened to keep
Jimmy Craig out of the indoor meets,
has been ignominiously banished, as
Craig has struck his last 3 ear's gait,
and should cop firsts over both the
high and low sticks.
Plans were being entertained by
the student supporters of the track
team, to congregate at the station and
send it off with cheers and songs, but
hackneyed J. Pluviu said naye and
put an effective damper on the pr jt.
Soph Lits Hold Regular Class Party.
Soph lits held their regular class
dance at Granger's last night. Eighty-
five couples attended the party. The
dance was more elaborate than usual,
several unique features being intro-
,duced as the dance progressed. "Ike"
Fischer's orchestra furnished the mu-
sic for the affair. The chaperones
were Dean and Mrs. John R. Effinger
and Mr. and Mrs M. C. Wier.
Union Dance Tickets Have Large Sale.
Tickets for this week's Union mem-
bership dance on Saturday night were
placed on- sale yesterday. The num-
ber is limited to 100 as usual, and a
n large part of them has been disposed
FOR ERECTION OF
Faiure to Obtain the Necessary
Amount to Start Operations on
Faculty Club Kills the
MEMBERS THOUGHT BUILDING
WULD HURT UNION CAMPAIGN
Committee in Charge of Matter Found
Task a Hard One and Col-
Due to failure to. obtain
the amountrnecessary to start
operations for the erection of
a new University clubhouse,
the club has abandoned the project.
Lack of enthusiasm was given as the
cause of the abandonment of the plan.
The plans for the new club called
for an expenditure of from $35,000 to
$40,000. Of this amount $15,000 was to
be subscribed in stock and a bond is-
sue was to cover the remaining
amount. After trying for some time to
raise the necessary $15,000 the com-
mittee in charge of the matter found
that the task was too large, and fur-
ther action was postponed.
"The majority of the members were
too well satisfied with their present'
accommodations in the basement of
Memorial hall for the project to suc-
ceed," said a prominent member of
the club last night. "The bachelor
members of the club were heartily in
favor of the plan, but enthusiasm was
lacking among the older members."
Another reason given for the lack of
success of the enterprise is the fact
that the members feel that their new
clubhouse would hurt the chances of
the Michigan Union in its campaign.
Some of the faculty think that the new
Union would fill the want of the Uni-
versity club as well as that of the stu-
dent body, and that they could enter-
tain visiting professors ap well there
as they could in their clubhouse.
