Will Total Nine Hundred

Manager H. L. Nutting, '15L, of the
Comedy club, announced yesterday the
cast of "Pomander Walk," which will
be presented by the club during the
early part of February.w
Leon Cunningham, .'16, because of
his versatility in character work, was
chosen for the part of Rev. Jacob
Sternroyd, the most difficult part in
the play. He will also assist in the
coaching of the production.
Mary True, '15, whose delineation of
juvenile charactersis pronounced ex-
cellent, will take the leading role. #
Although, the date has not been de-
termined, the management is planning
to'give two shows in Ann Arbor and
two outside engagements. Invitations
have been received to play at Urbana
and Chicago, Il., Madison, Wis., and
at Saginaw and Kalamazoo. Chicago
and Urbana will probably be the only
outside engagements planned, the in-
tention being to make a week-end trip
to these cities.
"Pomander Walk" is a light play
which illustrates the proposition that
"Love is stronger than caste." The -
author is Louis N. Parker, writer of
"Joseph and His. Bxethren," and "Dis-
raeli." Pomander Walk where the ac-
tion takes place is near the east coast
of England.
It is estimated that the expense of,
giving the production for two n'ights,
will amount to $900. Original costum-
es and scenery are being ordered from
a New York firm..

Dr. J. A. Wessinger, city health ofil-
cer,. caused the arrest of Gulchirst
Chalmers, Wednesday, charging him
with selling milk in unwashedrbottles.
Complaint was made by Dr. S. R.
Guild, instructor in the histology de-
partment, where Chalmers left milk,
bottles, which contained dirt in the
bottom, and which were almost black
in spots. Chalmers was brought be-
fore Judge .Doty, who fined him $25
and costs.
Vacation Basketball Players Delay in
Signing Up for Holiday
As the Christmas holidays draw
nearer, the prospects for a league of
basketball players grows more prom-
ising. Although only one man had
signed up for play up to yesterday,
20 signified their intention of playing
up to today.
Word from Intramural Director.
Floyd A. Rowe recommends that no
league be formed unless as many as
50 men sign up for the sport. Those
who are interested in basketball are
urged to enroll and those who have al-
ready signed up are urged to enlist
their friends.
Responses from the fraternities have
not yet begun to come in, but it is ex-
peted that material for at. least four
teams can be found in the housed or-
ganizations. This, coupled with the
added entries expected today, will
make up a sufficient number to launch
a league.%
The idea of an inter-departmental
league has had to be abandoned on ac-
count of the scarcity of entrants, and
unless the list of names on the entry
cards is more than doubled by tonight
it will be necessary to abandon the
whole scheme.,

Boston Speaker to Give Galsworthy's
Problem Drama
Leland Powers, of the Leland Pow-
ers School of the Spoken Word, Boston,
will deliver a dramatic recital on "The
Pigeon," by John Galsworthy, in Uni-
versity Hall, 8:00 o'clock tonight.
The recital is given under the aus-
pices of the Oratorical association.
"The Pigeon" is a modern problem
play by one of the strongest writers of
this kind of drama. It Is full of intense
human interest, and presents a prob-
lem in a strong and forceful manner,
the strength of the impression being
gained by the end, which offers no so-
lution. The audience is left with a
problem which each one may meet,
and each one is given an opportunity
to solve it in his own way.
Mr. Powers is one of the best im-
personators of character in public life
today, and his work tonight will con-
sist in taking all of the parts of the
drama himself.
An attempt was made to change the
date of his engagement, after the
change in the time of vacation, but it
was not successful. This is the eight-
eenth time that Mr. Powers has been
on a Michigan schedule. He Is the
only person on an oratorical. associa-
tion program who has been invited to
return to the university so many times.
It was found necessary to sell gen-
eral admissions at 50 cents instead of
25 cents as announced yesterday. Memn-
bers of the Oratorical association will
be admitted upon their season tickets.
Tickets will be on sale at the box of-
fice in University hall tonight.
Copies of the University Bulletin,
"Campus News Notes," are being turn-
ed off the press, and before tonight it
is expected that the total of 30,000 will
be completed. A limited number of
the Bulletins will be placed in various
campus buildings today so that stu-
dents leaving the cit'y may take copies
home with them. All other copies will
be mailed to alumni and former stu-
The Bulletin, which is the first of a
special series of university bulletins,
is a booklet of 16 pages, to be edited
by the Michigan Union every four or
six weeks. Among the illustrations
are cuts of President Harry B. Hutch-
ins, President-Emeritus James B. An-
gell, Secretary Shirley W. Smith, and
John Maulbetsch, '17P, and also a pic-
ture of the present Union building.
Special articles are included about the
Varsity teams, the "t' club, the Mich-
igan Union, the Y. M. C. A. activities,
the Union opera, Sunday programs,
and recent campus alterations.
Jeffersonian Selects Men for Squad
Jeffersonian society selected its
members of the varsity debating team
for the Mid-west debate last night.
The men are: F. J. Jones, '15L, N. H.
Goldstick, '15L, W. M. Brucker, '16L,
W. I. Goodwin, '16L, M. B. Kelly, '17L,
and S. J. Ogden, '17L. These men will
be added to those selected by Webster,
Alpha Nu and Adelphi societies to
make up the varsity debating squad for
the Mid-west debate. From these 24

men, the team of six will be chosen to
meet Wisconsin and Illinois.
Soph Engineers to Hear Prof. Friday
Prof. David Friday, of the economics
department, will be the principal
speaker at the meeting of the soph en-
gineers, to be held at 10:00 o'clock this
morning, in room 348, of the new engi-
neering building. As this is the lastj
class meeting of the semester, all mem-
bers are urged to attend.

OFuONtions to Bnd WedMonday Tuesday

Musical Clubs Leave for Cincinnati
Toledo, Youngstown, Rochester
and Detroit
Michigan's Glee and Mandolin club
will begin tomorrow night its Christ-
mas trip to Toledo, Cincinnati, Youngs-
town, Rochester and Detroit. The
chief concert of the tour will be given
in the Pontchartrain hotel, in conjunc-
tion with the Harvard Glee, Mandolin
and Banjo club.
The trip of the Michigan musical
clubs Is being financed by the Alumni
associations in the different cities, a
certain sum, and also a percentage
of the profits, being guaranteed in
each place. Sale of tickets makes the
arrangement a profitable one for the
various associations.
The program which will be present-
ed, consists of the more popular num-
bers in the two concerts presented in
Hill auditorium. After each perform-
ance, the members of the club will be
entertained by the alumni at dances,
except in Cincinnati, where a smoker
will be held.
The Harvard club is about the same
in number as the Michigan organiza-
tion. It is touring as far west as
Chicago and Milwaukee.
Men Sacrifice Large Part of Vacation
in Preparation for Annual
Much interest is being taken in the
Michigan-Chicago and Michigan-North-
western debates in the Central Debat-
ing league, which are scheduled for
Jamtary 16. The members of the de-
bating team, with the alternates, will
devote most of the vacation in train-
ing for the contest. Plans are now
being made for them to stay in Ann
Arbor until the day before Christmas
and to return before the end of vaca-
tion to resume work.
They will meet each day for consul-
tation upon the problems in the de-
bate, and will actively debate each
side of newer phases of the question.
In addition, the contestants will have
daily practice in exercises for the
voice and throat.
Backfiring of Gas in Base Retainer
Causes Serious Though
Harmless Explosion
Several students and faculty men
escaped serious injury yesterday after-
noon in the mechanical engineering
laboratory, when the base of a gas en-
gine was burst by an explosion. The
engine, which is known as the Fair-
banks-Morse gas engine, rests upon a
hollow base, into which a flow of gas
was discharged. The engine backfired
and sent a spark into the base, causing
an explosion.
The pieces of steel were sent flying,
several of them going from 25 to 30
feet. Although there were many per-
sons in the room at the time of the
explosion, none of them were hit by
the flying metal. .
Prof. J. E. Enswiler expressed the
opinion that it was miraculous that 'no
one was even scratched by the explos-
ion. He said that if any one had been
struck the results might have been
Prof. Wenley Talks in Grand Rapids
Prof. Robert M. Wenley, of the phil-
osophy department, will go to Grand

subject, "The Factor of Human Na-

University students who can not go
home during vacation are promised
holiday entertainment by the series of
informal parties to be given at New-
berry hall, by the Students' Christian
association and the various church de
nominations. The parties will be held
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday ev-
enings of next week, starting at 7:30
o'clock, and will be continued through-
out the vacation, if enough are inter-
ested to warrant this.
The affairs will be entirely informal.
Singing, games and plenty of "eats"
will be features. Marriedcouples will
act as chaperones. All university men
and women are invited to come, and
help make the meetings merry. Any
one who has talent as an entertainer
is requested to notify Walter . John-
son, 1200-M, who wil see that his ser-
vices are utilized.
Each person is to bring a nickel con-
tribution to defray expenses.
Mimes, Comedy, Girls Glee and Musical
Clubs Participate in
Program Plans
With a tentative program composed
of numbers by the Varsity band, the
Mandolin and Glee club, the Girls'
Glee club, the Mimes and the Comedy
club, the Band Bounce schedule for
Thursday and Friday, February 25 and
26 in Hill auditorium is already as-
suming definite form.
The addition of the comedy melo-
drama, farcical skits, monologues and
solo dances will finish out a varied and
novel entertainment. If present plansi
materialize more than 250 students
will participate, in the program which
Henry C. Rummel, '16L, is preparing.
Although active preparations will
not begin until the end of the semes-
ter, several skits of monologues have
already been submitted. W. A. P.
John, '16, editor of the Gargoyle, has1
written a rapid-fire burlesque melo-
drama especially for the production,
which will include stage effects calling
for a company of militia and a real
C. M. Kountz, '02L, writer of "Men
of Yost," and the new song, "That
Michigan Band," has promised to write
a humorous monologue on campus life.
Negotiations have been begun with
Waldo Fellows, '14, campus comedian
for the past two years, to induce him
to appear on the program and chances
are bright that he will make a favora-
ble reply.
Brick Makers Desire All University
Program Featuring Campus
President P. Duffy Koontz, '14-'17L,
of the Michigan Union, has received a
request that several of the Spotlight
Vaudeville acts be staged in Detroit
the latter part of February. The re
quest came from Wm. B.. Wreford,
manager of the Detroit Brick Manu-
facturing and Dealers Association. The
acts are to be given at the Board of
Commerce in Detroit, according to the
request. Mr. Wreford has secured a
local engineering professor to give an
illustrated lecture the same evening,
and if the vaudeville acts are secured,
he promises to have an All-University

of Michigan program.
Although Mr. Wreford did not wit-
ness the entertainment himself, sever-
al of the acts were recommended to
him by a local man.
11 Wolverines Study Law at Harvard
Michigan has five men in the first
year class of the Harvard law school,
out of a total of 288, and 11 men in the
whole department, in which there are
703 enrolled, these representing 144
colleges in all. Michigan is tied with
Bowdoin for ninth place in the num-
ber of freshmen entered. These fig-
ures correct an earlier report which
put the Michigan representation in
last place.

Richard C. Jeter, Jr., General Chair.
man, Calls Meeting, Reads Rules
and Divides Tasks
Among Men
Head of Arrangements Says Function
Will Conform to Spirit of
Faculty's Wishes
Actual work on the 1915 Junior hop
began last night at a meeting of the
hop committee called by Richard. C.
Jeter, Jr., '16E, *4ho was elected gen-
eral chairman of the hop, by the engi-
neers in their assembly yesterday
The rules and restrictions which the
faculty has placed on the hop were
read to the committeemen present at
the meeting. The subject which caused
the most discussion was the question
of the booths and decorations. Booths
for the hop are restricted to four coup-
les, a charge of 25 cents being made
for each couple. The decorations will
be made by the hop committee, in all
probability. It was the opinion of the
committee that groups could secure
reservations together, if enough room
is 'provided in the gymnasiums for the
establishment of booths. The parti-
tions between adjoining booths will
only be nominal.
The engineers elected to serve on the
committee are: Francis T. Mack, Ther-
on D. Weaver, and Carleton E. Stryker,.
Junior laws elected W. C. Mullendore
and L. M. Bruch to represent them.
Louis F. Voorhees is the architect
committeeman, and Maurice L. Rush-
more will act in the same capacity for
the pharmics. The presidents of the
junior medics and homeops failed to
appoint delegates in time ifor last
night's meeting.
The lit representatives as announced
are: James B. Angell II, David R.
Ballentine, Richard M. McKean, and
Harold L. Smith. F. G. Dratz was ap-
pointed the representative of the den-
tal class.
General Chairman Jeter appointed
committees from those representatives
present, all of whom will report to
him during the holidays, so that prep-
arations may be definitely made on the
re-opening of college in January. The
representatives who were not present
at the meeting will be placed on com-
mittees later on. The following con-
stitute the committees; as now select-
ed: Refreshments, Smith, Mullendore'
and Rushmore; music; Angell and
Mack; booths, Stryker; decorations,
Voorhees, Weaver and McKean; pro-
grams, Bruch 'and Balentine; and
tickets, Jeter. By the action of the
senate council committee, the selection
of the chaperons for the dance falls
upon the general chairman.
No plans have yet been made for any
entertainments to be held during the
week-end of the hop, which will take
place on February 5. The committee
will, however, attempt to arrange some
form of amusement for those w.h at-
tend the hop. It was suggested that
the Comedy club might be secured to
play a Saturday afternoon engagement,
but whether this plan will materialize
is not known.
Because of the fact that he was on-
ly elected to the position yesterday
morning, general chairman Jeter said
that things were in such a state that
he could make no definite statement
in regard to the hop. He said that the
committee would live up to the spirit
of the rules laid down by the faculty,
and there would be no evasion or
stretching of the regulations. "We are,

as it were, on probation, and it, depends
on us, to a large extent, whether the
Junior hop shall again become Michi-
gan's greatest social function, or
whether it shall be abolished forever.
And we are not so sefish as to want
to deprive other classes of their hop."
- he next meeting of the hop commit-
tee will be held at 7:15 o'clock, Tues-
day, January 5.
Athletic Annual Has Banner Day Sale
Yesterday's sale of the Michigan
Athletic Annual was the largest enjoy-
ed by that publication any single day
since its issuance. It is expected that
today's sale will almost exhaust the
few remaining copies of the annual.
The publication is being purchased
largely for "home use" by students.
