extremely elaborate, mounting, both in
regard to scenic effects and costum-
ing. "For the Love of Mike" is being
pronounced everywhere, the most
tuneful,"the most merry and the most
beautiful, of-the season's musical com-
edies, in the way of pretty girls and
costumes. "For the Love of Mike"
will be the attraction at the Whitney
on Friday, November 13.
Messrs. Kent and O'Connor, the Chi-
cago producers, announce the forth-
coming engagement of their complete
scenic production of the standard old
classic, "East Lynne" at the Whitney
theatre Monday, Nov. 9, matinee and
night, with a specially engaged com-
pany, headed by Miss Jacqueline De-
Witt as Lady Isabel and a notable sup-
porting cast. It has been some years
since the Michigan public has had an
opportunity to see this grand old play
produced by a first-class one-night
stand company, and the producers
have provided an exceptional produc-
tion. All special scenery and' lighting,
effects are carried and the wardrobe
worn is a feature. Popular prices
vill prevail.
In response to appeals sent out by
the University of Michigan and other
universities and industrial institutions,
asking the cooperation of the State
department at Washington in alleviat-
ing the hardships caused by the scar-
city of chemical and other laboratory
supplies, the State department has is-
sued letters 'setting forth locations and

Ye who pine under monoton. will,
welcome the charming musical play,
"The Girl of My Dreams" which comes'
to the Whitney Thursday night, Nov-
ember 12.
It is an express train to "Happy-
land," and a blending of pretty girls
with tuneful music, a bunch of laugh-
ter tinged with just a touch of sent!-
mont. -
The scenic mountings of the piece
and the costuming are splendid and
appropriate, while the staging of the
epsemble numbers and novelties with
which "'The Girl of My Dreams"
abounds, are unque and original.
The book is by Wilbur D. Nesbit and
Otto Hauerbach, music by Karl Hosch-
na. The cast includes Countess Von
Hatzfeldt-Clara Thropp, H arland
Briggs, Irving Brooks, Adele Boulaise,
Jules Pailly, Marie Grenier, Bud Mur-
ray and Harry Humphreys. The piece

For incredible swiftness and com-
pleteness in changing characters., the
work of Madame Marion has never
been excelled--if indeed ever equalled
-by anything ever seen this far west.
The plot of the little sketch i'A Daugh-
ter of Proteus," tells a consistent
fable, all seven feminine characters
being played by Madame Marion. She
exits from a door as a refined elderly
lady, and hardly does the curtain drop
to its place when she emerges in the
character of an Irish maid, an Italian
girl or the city woman at will. Every
ole of her characters is a distinct'
and authentic creation, the more re-
