POSTER PORTRAYS

John B. Jewell, '15A, Designs Picture
of Girl Scattering Dollars
on Sand
TO BE PUT ON SALE THIS WEEK
Gold dollars scattered on a golden
seashore, by a golden-haired dancer-
girl blaze on the 1915 opera's coat-
of-arms, drawn up in a poster by John
B. Jewell- '15A. The three colors,
orange-gold and blue on a grayish
background, reflect the character of
the "All That Glitters" production.
About 15 pseters were turned in dur-
ing the week after Christmas vacation

and the grouping in the foreground
is brilliant with orange-gold and blue.
Remarkable detail work, symmetry
and idea aid the contention that this
year's poster exceeds those of the
preceding seven years.
The annual poster contest was won
last year by Don M. Cottrell, '14A, and
in the year before by Leo N. Burnett,

In order to further the discussion of

charge of that branch of the opera meetings have been held, which were
work. After a few nights of restless attended by a goodly crowd of repre-
indecision, the judges gave the first sentative men.

prize of 10 dollars and the honor to
Jewell, while a close second was given
to Lamar, M. 'Kishlar, '17E, who also
won second place in last year's con-
test.
More than 700 posters have been
printed at present, and are now in the
hands of Adna R. Johnson, '16L, who
is chairman of the opera publicity
committee. They will be put on sale
in a day or two at Wahr's and Shee-
han's State street stores, and the price
probably will be 10 cents per picture,
as in previous years.
The picture on this year's poster is
especially attractive, representing a'
beautiful girl, presumably the heroine
of the opera, dancing on the famous
board walk at Atlantic City. She
holds a sack of gold dollars which
she scatters wantonly along the beach.

A SPECIALTY

To encourage those who feel a hesi-
tancy about speaking before an as-
semblage, the sessions have been made
as informalas possible. The only rule
has been to limit the speeches to five
minutes, but it has not been neces-
sary to enforce the regulation often.
Before each gathering, a presiding
officer is selected. He is usually pick-
ed from men who have had experience
along such lines, such as members
of the various Varsity debating teams.
The chairman of the meeting gets a
general line on the points at issue in
the problem for discussion, and in case
of a lag in the talk, suggests topics for
the speakers.
In addition to the main topic for
discussion, which is announced be-
forehand, a list of minor subjects has
been drawn up, but so far they have
not been necessary. Their object is
to provide points for discussion in
case the regular subject is exhausted.
It is planned to continue these
gatherings every Thursday night until
spring vacation, and if it seems war-
ranted, it is probable that they will be
resumed after the April recess.
Jane Addams to Speak Here March 28
Jane Addams, director of the Hull
House at Chicago, and noted social
worker, will speak under the auspices
of the Wesleyan Guild at the Metho-
dist church, Sunday evening, March 28.
Her subject will be "War Versus So-
cial Service."
Besides being an ardent social
worker, Miss Addams is also promi-
nent in the peace movement, and has
formed organizations among women
of Chicago for such purposes.

DIRECTOR INJECTS LIVELINESS I RENDEZVOUS OF FOUR HUNDRED

When the first-nighters begin to dis-
cuss this year's Union opera on their
way home from the Whitney, it is a
pretty safe wager, that with the true
musical comedy enthusiasm, they will
be talking most about "that chorus."
For it is inthis department that "All
That Glitters" will mark on improve-
ment over other Union operas.
Also there will doubtless be a lot of
talk about the "pep" and "snap" of the
show all the way through. There will
be no dull spots, no boring scenes this
year. Things will be kept on the jump
all the time, according to Kenneth S.
Baxter, '15E, general chairman of the
opera, and anyone who has watched
the rehearsals under Director Eugene
B. Sanger knows this liveliness will be
one of the characteristics of the opera.
There will be more dancing than
formerly, and, moreover, the steps are
all new and original, and the large
number of rehearsals, as well as the
quality of the chorus men, insure that
they will be well executed. Something
new will be the acrobatic acts in the
"Cheer Up" number by the "ponies"

Davis & Pinger
Prompt Pinters

Down in the west forties, not so far
from the white lights of Broadway, is
pictured a room, where vivacious
blonds and soulful brunettes lure ro-
mance over glass-topped tables with
orange stick and file. Customers from
the four hundred enter, and the entic-
ing hairdressers dress and redress the
coiffeurs of the age of 1915.
It is the rendezvous of the "Creme
de la Creme" of the village of Gotham.
Men-about-town saunter nonchalantly
in to have the maids trim them, that
is, their nails. Stately matrons and ir-
resistable debutantg, seeking the foun-
tain of youth, receive the application
of rouge, enamel and cream in their
game of dye with age. The youth, pal-
lid, with ennui, enters and
leaves with the flush of romance (or
Mme, Marstelle's rouge) glowing in his
cheeks, and the overdressed drummer
finds inspiration fo:: his complacency.
All is in white, the tables, the chairs,
the draperies and even the costumes
of the girls themselves.
But color is introduced later,
through the medium of the fashionable
patrons of the shop) who enter for a
moment's chat with the proprietor, or
a half hour's session with the a(t of
beautification.
Strangescenes are enacted in this
beauty parlor of the first act of the
opera-scenes that would hardly be
expected outside of the realms of the
imagination. And when the curtain
drops, the initiation into the mysteries
of the wiles of Venus, although incom-
plete, will have been set afoot.
The deep blue sea of the wide At-,
lantic forms the background for the
second act of the play. In the fore-
ground we hive the beach at the wat-
ering place most favored by the writ-
ers of novels and playlets, or, to be
more specific, Atlantic City, New Jer-
sey. Bathing girls, summer girls, ath-
letic girls, girls of all kinds and of all
descriptions stroll about upon the far-
famesd board walk and the equally re-
nowned beach. Life-guards and sum-
mer men accompany the young ladies
in their walks about the stage.

(Continued from Page 1)
With the presentation of "A Model
Daughter" last spring, one innovation
was introduced--the substitution of a
dancing chorus for the former "broil-
ers." The scene of the opera was
Paris, and the plot centered about an
art studio in the Latin quarter. W. &.
Melton, '13, was the author of the
book, the music was composed by
Willis A. Diekema and Waldo E. Fel-
lows, '14, while the lyrics came from
the pen of Sylvan S. Grosner, '14L, the
author of this year's production.
OPERA NUMBERS OF GARGOYLE
GO ON SALE FRIDAY, APRIL 2
Publication Said to Contain Largest
Amount of Art Work of Any
Issue
Opera numbers of the Gargoyle will
be sold on the streets Friday noon,
April 2, and probably will contain the
largest amount of art work and special
contributions of any one issue in the
publication's history. The cover is
being designed by Joseph J. Kucera,
'17E. The number will correspond to

some extent to the "Spot" number of a
year ago.
Harold Schradski, '15L, has written
an introductory poem. Besides the
men on the regular staff, the following
artists have started work on contri-
butions for the next number: R. M.
Parsons, '14, A. D. Honey, '17D, E. S.
Everett, grad., Francis P. Bade, '15,
and Harold B. Abbott, '15A.
Those who have written special arti-
cles are: H. B. Carpenter, '17L, H. R.
Schradski, '15L, Mr. M. C. Wier, and
Mr. H. P. Scott, both of the rhetoric
faculty, and S. S. Dickinson, '15L.

which stunt bids fair to put the pyra-
mid artists in the gymnasium to
shame.
Another thing that will mark a de-
velopment in Union operas is the fact
that there are six changes of costume
by the chorus alone. When the first
operas were staged, the costumes for
the chorus were often those picked up
from the handiest sources around Ann
Arbor, and one costume would usually
do for the whole show. The costumes,
manyof them made to order, have been
rented from the Eaves Costume com-
pany, of New York City, one of the
largest firms in the east.
Without making use of the "best
ever" phrase, so often applied to the
opera, in the opinion of General Chair-
man Baxter, the opera will mark a
general improvement over past pro-
ductions. The cast is versatile and well
balanced, having been gradually built
up, and according to Director Sanger,
the material here is better to work
with than he has ever had for any col-
lege production.

More and livelier specialty acts will
be one of the features of "All That
Glitters." Durward Grinstead, who
plays the role of Adelaide Devon, and
Maurice Dunne, the chauffeur, will
cast aside their regular parts for a
time, and give an exhibition of classic
danciit. Director Sanger expressed
himself as quite surprised by the two
men's ability, and more than satisfied
with the act. They will appear in an-
cient Grecian costume.
E. G. Hildner, one of the chorus
men, and Earl F. Bankey, '17, are
