Author, James Oliver Curwood, Took
Literary Work at ilicliigau
"God's Country and the Women" is
the title of a romance recently pub-
lished by James Oliver Curwood, of
Owosso, Mich. It is a powerful book
'of the tales of the Northland, written
in the spirit and mood of the wilder-
ness. Mr. Curwood attended the uni-
versity from 1898 to 1900, taking liter-
ary work, but did not graduate.
Mr. Curwood was formerly a news-
paper man in Detroit, and it was while
at this work that his short stories of
the far north attracted attention. His
stories deal with plots developed and
carried on in the border country, in
which the author is accustomed to
spend his entire summers. It is said
that Mr. Curwood has more friends
and acquaintances in the northern
woods, than the trappers and traders

Louis N. Parker's comedy, "Poman-
der Walk," will be presented by the

Arrangements have been completed
for the whirlwind visit of the "Flying

day, taking into consideration the fact
that, with the reinstatement of the J-
:Hop, there would be a demand for
some form of entertainment on the
day following that function, and ac-
cordingly, a matinee will be staged to
entertain those who are still on gaiety
bent after the evening of the J-Hop.
In order that fraternities, house
clubs, and other groups may be sup-
plied with blocks of seats, all who de-
sire may make reservations by coin-
municating with R. H. Tannahill, '15.
Reservations will be filled in the order
received. The general sale of seats
will begin Wednesday, February 3, at;
Wahr's, and continue until the day of
the show, when the sale will be trans-
ferred to the box office at the Whitney.
Rehearsals are being held daily, and
the club bids fair to excel all previous
plays in the professional finish of this
year's production. Edward Sachs, '17,
who is assisting the management in
producing the play, and who played "a
leading role in Jesse Bonisteele's com-
pany during 1913, spoke enthusiastic-
ally of the production.
Original scenery has been contracted
for from a New York firm. New cos-
tumes are also being secured.
Wthin a few days the Drama League
of Ann Arbor will witness a rehearsal
of "Pomander Walk," to determine
whether the League's approval will be
given the production.

Seniors Fill Out Their Record Blanks
Senior records, which accompany
senior portraits in the Michiganensian,
will be placed in the annual this year,
from data which will be filled out on
record blanks at the various photog-
raphers. The seniors will fill out their
records at the time of their sitting.
'his is the only method arranged for
Fathering the necessary data, as the
dichiganensian staff has no authority
to add to a senior record, although it
may cut them where unimportant ma-
terial has been used.
Among the things which Editor W.
B. Thom, '15, of the Michiganensian,
suggests to be listed in the record are:
Fraternities, honor societies, campus
societies, important class and Varsity
offices, debating and literary honors,
and anything else considered import-
ant. February 1, is the date set for
the turning in of senior pictures at
the regular fee, while no pictures will
be accepted after February 15.
