Abraham Gornetzky, '17, and Mills
together have written about an equa
share of the music, while Seymour B.
Simons, '17E, has contributed a fea-
ture song, "Is That So." All the lyrics
are by Sylvan S. Grosner, '12-'14L,
author of the book.
Gornetzky has written the opening
choruses and finales, and a number of
songs, of which his favorite two are
"There Are No Tears or Sorrows," and
"While We Go Rolling Along." W'ien
interviewed, he said, "I got most of
the ideas from the lyrics, and from
picturing the scenes in my mind. I
have aimed at melody and description,
and am much pleased with the mann :r
in which the songs are being inter-
preted under Mr. Sanger's direction."
While Gornetzky and the other writers
have made some efforts along this ise
before, none have ever writen for pro-
fessional productions.

statement to make that only a very
small percent have anything" but a
vague idea as to how the opera. is
whipped into shape.
About a month before the appear-,
ance of the annual musical comedy,
the men who are prospective writers
for the next year's play get together,
and the plan for the coming year is
outlined to them.. These men then
write synopses of their books, and
hand them in, when they are judged
by the director, who makes any nec-
essary corrections and suggestions.
After the germs of the books are re-
turned to the writers, they complete
them, and in May return them to a
committee of students and faculty men,
who act as judges.
When the winner is announced,
copies of the lyrics are given to the
men who wish to compete for the mu-
sic writing, and the majority of the
work on the songs is done during the
summer. In the fall, each writer
plays his compositions before a com-
mittee, associated with which are Earl
Moore, Prof. A. A. Stanley and Prof.
Theodore Harrison, all of the school 'of
music After the corrections are made,
the music is sent to the printers.
Shortly after the Christmas holi-
days, the director of the opera makes
a visit to Ann Arbor to go over the
music and book, and to outline' the
scenery and costumes. Then come the
tryouts for the cast and chorus, and
when the director again returns, the
final selections have been made, and
parts have been assigned to the men
About this time the committee on
costumes begins to work up the de-
tails of the raiment to be worn. The
property men also start work with the
stage carpenter and scene painter.
By this time the regular rehearsal
of cast, chorus and orchestra begin
and are held almost daily until th
first appearance of the troupe.
With the start of the regular re
hearsals for the cast,'chorus and or
chestra, begins the final stage of the
producing ,of the opera. These prac
tices increase in number, until they
are held almost daily about the week
or so previous to the first appearanc
of the play. This year it has been the
chorus especially who have had to
practice often, for the rehearsals are
coming, sometimes twice a day, one
alone, and the other time in conjunc-
tion with the cast and orchestra. A~
few days before the first performanc
dress rehearsals are in order at the
theater, and by that time the produc-
tion is considered to be in shape fo
the opening night.

A battery often slows down the
