F KERMESS PROGRAM TODAY
TICKETS ON SALE AT 25 CENTS
Senator Robert M. LaFollette, of
Wisconsin, who speaks in Hill audito-
rium, Monday night, touches Michigan,
on a flying tour of the middle west and
the south. He is filling a few engage-'
.tents in the short time before Con-
-r:s opens, and nearly all of his
ti'rne will be taken up at universities.
Senator LaFollette holds a record
that is said to mark him as an unusu-
al man. He was admitted to the bar,
but, soon after his graduation from the
university, he entered politics, and has
been in politics since that time. He
was sent to Congress for two sessions.
Later he was elected governor of Wis-
consin, and 'reelected twice. Before
the end of his third term, he resign-
ed to become United States senator,
and was reelected to that position in
1911. In the senate, he identified him-
self with the Insurgents, at which
time he inade his reputation as a fight-
er. He was boomed for the presiden-
tial nomination twice.
Senator LaFollette advocated that
all nominations of candidates for pub-
lic office be by direct vote of the peo-
ple, and that railway property be taxed
at the same rate, and by the same sys-
tem as other taxable property, and
that states should control railway
rates within the state.
Tichets for the lecture are selling
at 25 cents. They are in the hands of
students on the campus, and are sold
at the box office in University hall.
Tickets for the banquet which will
be tendered the football team, by the
Ann Arbor Civic Association at 6:30
o'clock Monday night in the Armnory,
have been placed on sale at the Mich-
igan Union, Huston Brothers, Swit-
zer's Hardware Store and at all of the
local banks. In view of the fact that
the dinner will be the real culminating
event of tle 1914 football season, a
large attendance is expected.
The admission price has been set at'
$1.00 per plate. This is the first time
the Civic Association has ever attempt-
ed a function of this nature, and, if
successful, the authorities plan to
make it an annual affair. Many years
ago it was customary for the Ann Ar-
bor business men to favor the grid-
ders with a banquet at the end of the
It is urged that all wishing tq at-
tend, purchase their tickets before
noon today, in order that those in
charge may be able to ascertain how
many they will have to accommodate.
Regent Junius E. Beal has been se-
cured to act as toastmaster at the
dinner. George J. Burke, prosecuting
attorney, and E. F. Mills, a local busi-
ness man, will give talks to the bai-
queters, and it is expected that Dean
Bates will also be one of the speakers.
Toastmaster Beal is making efforts to
obtain former mayor Codd, of Detroit,
as one of the principal speakers.

eryone is cordially invited to attend.
In honor of freshman women, the

Automobiles to Call at Fraternity
Houses for Contributions

ner to advertise the Belgian Relief
Fund movement was not placed near

day, the collection of clothing will not

ably will call today at the fraternity
houses to collect the contributions.
Because of the delay, the campaign
will continue through Monday. Con-
tributions may be left at all hours of
the day at the Church of Christ, on

pecially desired, but anything will be

When the entries had closed last night,
not enough had entered to warrant the

In one of the most finished pla

students, "A Curious Mishap" drew
good sized and appreciative audien:

especially well, and the cast was WE
balanced," said Prof. R, D. T. Holli

experience which the cast gained, wi
serve them in good stead for the ne
performance." The play will be r
peated tonight, at 8:15 o'clock.
Walker Peddicord, '14-'16L, as Phi
ibert, played the part of an old kin
hearted Dutch merchant, with an e:
ceilent presentation of character. .
no time did he drop the personali
of the proud merchant, and he put tI
feeling and expression into the pa
worthy of one with much mdore exp
rience. Francis Hickok, '15, his daug]
ter, Giannina, in the play, took a pa
that required natural sweetness am
even disposition, and Miss Hickok he
the necessary requirements. She p1

Riccardo, a rival in business,
Philibert, was taken by Leslie L Is

to portray, that of an eccemftrlo am

stage brought. applause from the ai
dience. His daughter in the play, CO
tanza, was impersonated by Bess Ba

tiously, and carried her part wil
much skill and spirit.
The comedy was supplied by ti
lines and situations, mostly, but xi'
a little merriment was secured by t
audience, from the clever antics

Ross, '15, as Gascoigne. The effor
of both deserved the applause they
