of those who were unable to procure
tickets for the productions of last

to cover the expenses of the extra
show, but there are a number of good1

where the second show will be staged
at the Auditorium theater on Tuesday
On the two following evenings, the
opera will appear in Detroit and Sag-
inaw, respectively. After the Saginaw
performance the troupe will break up,
to allow the men to spend part of the
spring vacation at their homes.-
Capacity houses will greet the opera
on the trip, according to the reports
of the alumni in the cities on the route.
Chicago and Detroit have been entirely
sold, out for some time.

rremstad is best known as a grand
opera singer, especially excelling in
the leading Wagnerian roles, she has
won much renown for her ability to
charm in the singing of the German
"Lieder," and smaller forms. Her
musical career began as a mere child,
and, at the age of five, she appeared
in concert as a pianist. Subsequently
she taught music in St. Paul and Du-
luth, and later developed her vocal

the best known of Schubert's, pref-
erence Was strangely given to "Der
Wanderer an den Mond," which she
was required to repeat, while the in-
dominitable "Erlkoenig" escaped with-
out the applause it deserved. In the
group of Brahms' songs, the "Vergeb-
liches Staendchen," and "Von Ewiger
Liebe," were best appreciated, the

the plans having been made at a meet-
ing of the committee yesterday after-
noon. In order that the minstrel show
will not conflict with the Glee and
Mandolin concert scheduled for the
same night, the latter organization has
consented to postpone its concert until
a later date.
The Boat club show comes as the
result of the anxiety of the officials to
take advantage of an offer by the De-
troit alumni backing the Boat club.
The Detroiters are willing to give two
new eight-oared shells to the organ-
ization this spring, valued at $1,200,
provided that the club can raise enough
money to build a boat house for them.
If everything goes well, this will give
the club a big start in the work for a!
Varsity crew, the goal toward which
the club is striving. Some money also
is needed to finance the regatta.

Tennis tryouts took their first out-
door workout yesterday afternoon,
when about eight enthusiasts turned
out to keep warm the two courts which
are now in shape for play. The Var-
sity courts have had some attention
paid to them, and were in fine early
season shape for the men who appear-
ed for the initial practice yesterday.
The early appearance of tennis try-
outs this year bids fair to help out the
team in material fashion, the racquet-
ers being on the court two weeks earli-
er than last year's squad. Some mem-
bers of the early season squad which
has been tentatively selected by Cap-
tain Reindel will remain in Ann Ar-
bor to work during the vacation peri-
od, while other tryouts for the team
will take their practice at their homes.
After the holidays, the list of men
who have been selected for the early
season squad probably will be made;
public, and the use of the Varsity
courts will be restricted to them, the
other courts by that time being in
shape to permit the other men taking
their work on them. If the plans of for-
mer years are followed, a tournament
will be held before going east, the
eight high men in which will qualify
for the tryouts for the squad, which is
composed of six men. From the six
men on the squad four are picked to
make the eastern invasion.
C. N. Mack, who won the Comstock
trophy and the campus championship
in last fall's All-Comers tonrnament
was out yesterday with "Chuck" Craw-
ford, runner-up in the fall play. Mack
seems to have lost none of his steadi-
ness through the winter, and if he de-
velops the aggression which he show-
ed in his last match in the fall, he will;
be one of the most likely men out for
this year's team.
Certain Rifle Club Members Will Have
Numerals and Jerseys
Certain members of the Michigan ri-+
fie team will be awarded special in-
signia, as a result of the action taken
by the athletic board of directors at
its meeting yesterday afternoon. To
the men who have shot among the first
high five during more than half the
rifle matches of the year, the new in-
signia will be awarded.
The design will consist of a target
and the year numerals of the man to
whom the award is made. The insig-
nia will be on jerseys, which will be
given to the men.
A petition from the architects, re-
questing extra sets of numerals for
their basketball team, was denied by
the board. The reason for the refusal
was given as the fear of setting a prec-
edent for granting extra numerals.
The architects based their request on
the fact that a couple of their men
were injured in the early games, and
others had to be substituted.

meet is a faster event than at the in-
tercollegiates, as men ineligible for the
latter are allowed to compete in Phil-
adelphia, which gives Robinson a
chance. Howard Drew, the colored
sprinter from the coast, will be on
hand, and with a record of 18 races
which have beentimed officially in 9
4-5 and better, the dusky champion is
a heavy favorite. Last year he won
the 100 with ease, "Howdy" Seward,
the Michigan entrant, finishing third.
The coach has announced that he
will take a broad jumper who can ne-
gotiate 22 feet, and Johnny Ferris is
already working out with this in view.
Ferris is jumping much better this sea-
son than he ever has before, and if he
continues at the present rate, should
make the grade. "Al' Robinson, the
freshman sprinter, may also take a'
crack at broad jumping. "Robby" has
a sneaking no," that perhaps he can
do the required distance, although he
never spent much time working at
this in "prep" school. Many sprinters
develop into good broad jumpers, as
is evidenced by the fact that Drew, the
California entrant, frequently com-
petes in the leap.
Wilson is working at the pole vault,
and the coach states that if he betters
the 12 foot mark by a few inches, hye
will take him along. Corbin is work-
ing at the hurdles, and the classy race

when the spirits stalk, and as the li-

BUMP! BUMP! Ah! the load was
bumping against the house, and what
was worse, at about the same time the
villianess (that is the landlady) heard
a noise as if something were "tapping,

Quickly adjusting her teeth, after
seizing them from the glass of water
in which they were reposing for the

night, she stepped to the phone and'
