Six Parts.
The name of such an actress as Mrs.
Leslie Carter is sufficient to guaraptee
the worth of this production. It is a
magnificent and powerful play, worked
out with wonderful finish and perfec-
tion to the last detail. Mr. George
Kleine, who personally directed the
production of this picture, spared
neither pains or money to make this
the most perfect play of the kind that
has ever been shown on the screen.
Supporting Mrs. Carter is a remark-
able cast, including Richard Thorn-
ton, Hamilton Revelle, and Campbell
Gollan. When this photo-play was
shown here some months ago we could
not accommodate all who wanted to
see it.

Wednesday, June 2.
Dick Seymour (impersonated by Mr.
Elliott) is fortunate in having a splen-
did father and a faithful girl as a
sweetheart. Money is coming to him.
But, tempted by Woman and Wine, he
takes the downward road.
His money is in Paris. In that city
he goes from bad to worse and is ac-
cused of murder. From prison and
death there seems no escape. But his
father and sweetheart are loyal to him
to the last and he is proved innocent
of the crime and saved. He finds hap-
piness by making a new start in life
and being true to higher ideals.
Mr. Elliott has a fine part in that of
Dick Seymour. It calls for sustained
acting through many long and trying

This story is one that will appeal
to all who enjoy good acting, good
photography, and a heart-interest
story. It is a convincing, logical

of Jimmy Valentine, has one of the
strongest acting parts ever presented
on the screen.

reported dissatisfied with conditions at
Wisconsin, and planning upon coming
to Michigan. Carter ran the 220 last
year in 21:3 which is within 2-5 of a
second of the world's record. It is
understood that several of the Chi-
cago boys are waiting to see where
Carter goes. Zoellin, Mueller, Graham
and Kimball all stated that they were
coming to Michigan for sure, so un-
less they change their minds, the 1916

With three victories, one second
place and one third, as a record for

hletes who competed in the Michi-
,n interscholastic, will enter the uni.-
rsity next fall, according to reports.
Prominent among these men is Zoel-
i, of Lewis Institute. Zoellin took
ree first places during the course of
e afternoon's activities, and succeed-
in breaking one, Michigan inter-
holastic record. He ran the finals
the high hurdles in 15 4-5, which
is one-fifth of a second under the
rmer record. Zoellin also fought
s way down to the finals in the low
rdles, but he dropped out after
aring the first barrier, which was
ly to be expected, as he had spent
e bigger part of the afternoon in
sing about the field from one event
another. Running three events, and
e preliminaries for all of them, is a
ther strenuous task for anyone.
"Red" Graham, the university high
le vaulter, is also planning to enter
chigan, according to "Red" himself,
d "Red" ought to know if anyone
es. He won the pole vault at 10
t 6 inches, although he has done
er a foot better than this, and is
ted as the most promising pole
ulter in the Windy City. Graham
also a broad jumper, and at the
et here he ran a lap for his team in
e relay races.
Mueller, of Lewis Institute, the win-
r in the 880-yard run, is also headed
. Michigan. Mueller ran in the
)-yard dash and he finished third in
s, in addition to his victory in the
if mile.
Kimball, the weight man from Mus-
gon, is another high school star
fning to join the Wolverine squad,
cording to reports. Kimball spent'
most enjoyable afternoon on Ferry
eld, winning three first places in as
Lny tries. The discus, hammer and
ot all went to the young giant from
e west side of the state, which is a
r day's work for any man in any
Burke, of Richmond, the winner of

nders has another year in "prep"

rds Michigan eventually. Landers
n the broad jump with a leap close
22 feet. finished third in the low
rdles and tied for second in the
le vault. The week before the Mich-
in meet, Landers did 11 feet 10 at
e Illinois interscholastic. After

Interest in the university Y. M. C. A. Ithe year, the oratory department can

for the remaining weeks of this se-
mester is centering in the line-up of a
delegation of 50 students to attend the
annual Lake Geneva student confer-
ence to be held at William's Bay, Wis.,
June 18 to 28. At the conference last
year, the University of Michigan had
the largest delegation on the grounds,
40 men being present, and it is hoped
to outdo this record by increasing the.
attendance this year.
The conference which is headed up
by "Dad" Elliot, travelling student sec-
retary of the international committee
of the Y. M. C. A., is attended annu-
ally by more than 800 students from
educational institutions all over the
middle west, and some of the most
prominent men in the country are
numbered on the 10-day program of-
fered each year.
An appreciation of what religion
may mean to the every-day life of the
average man is one of the purposes
of the conference, and in addition to
this the opportunities in the various
lines of Christian service are present-
ed by such men as Graham Taylor,
Wilbur Messer, Bishop Henderson, of
the Methodist church, John R. Mott,
and many others.
Not the least important part of the
conference is the athletic department.
Every afternoon each delegate is re-
quired to take some active part in
outdoor exercise, and among the op-
portunities provided are a nine-hole
golf course, several tennis courts, a
baseball diamond and track field, boat-
ing and' canoeing, and an ideal swim-
ming beach.
An atmosphere quite different from
any other with which the average stu-
d(nt has ever come in contact, is the
impression that one Michigan man
gave of the conference. The local as-
sociation aims to take all the mem-
bers of its cabinet to the conference
every year, and this year an attempt
is being made to include the members
of its various unit cabinets in the
same arrangement.
Drama League Will Clive Performance
Ann Arbor center of the Drama
League will give a benefit perform-
ance, consisting of three one-act
plays, at the Whitney theater at 8:00
o'clock Friday, June 4. The plays,
which are to be given by an all-star
amateur cast, are, "Tradition," "A
Marriage Has Been Arranged," and
"A Gentle Jury." All holders of cou-
pon No. 2, of the Drama League ser-
ies, will be admitted for 15 cents. Gen-
eral admission has been fixed at 25

boast of considerable success in the
1914-1915 contests. This is a substan-
tial gain when compared with the
laurels reaped during the preceding
college year.
In the Michigan-Chicago debate, held
at Ann Arbor January 15, and in the
two battles of the Mid-West debating
league, Michigan was awarded chief
honors. At the first of these contests
the university was represented by
Peter Miller, '17L, Isador Becker, '17L,
and Harry D. Parker, '16L. The Mich-
igan-Illinois debate of the Midwest
league was captured by a two to one
vote, by Harrison M. Karr, grad., Vic-
tor H. Sugar, '16, and Jacob Levin,
'17L, while G. C; Classen, '15L, B. F.
Gates, '15, and S. F. Rosenstein, '15L,
were given a unanimous decision in
the Wisconsin fray.
Frances L. Hickok, '15, the only wo-
man ever selected to speak for the
university in either debating or ora-
tory, won the University Oratorical
contest of March 4 by a good margin,
and came within one point of tying
for first place in the Northern Oratori-
cal league contest held at Iowa City,
May 7. This event is considered one
of the most difficult on the year's
schedule to win.
In the Peace Oratorical contest, N.
E. Pinney, '16, carried off both the
state battle which occurred in Uni-
versity Hall March 29, and the Inter-
state or Central group contest staged
at Ripon College, Wisconsin. This gave
him the right to try for the National
Peace honors in the finals at Lake Mo-
honk, May 20. He was given third
place in this event.
The inter-society Cup debate-fell to
Alpha Nu this year, after a struggle
in finals with Webster. The victors
were, H. B. Teegarden, '17, H. H.
Springstun, '17, and E. Carroll, '15.
"A Curious Mishap," the Association
play presented December 4, was ac-
knowledged one of the most finished
plays ever produced by Michigan stu-
dents, and was attended by a large
and appreciative audience. Walker
Peddicord, '14-'16L, Frances L. Hickok,
'15, Louis Eich, grad., Leslie Lisle, '14-
'17L, Bess Baker, '15, Ethyl Fox, '15,
and Earl Ross, '15, took the principal
Leland Powers who presented Gals-
worthy's play, "The Pigeon," and Mar-
garet Stahl, in an interpretation of
"Everywoman," were the main dra-
matic artists on the association's pro-
gram. Both were well received.
"The whole year has been remark-
ably successful," said Prof. R. D. T,.
Hollister, of the oratory department,
when asked for a statement concern-
ing the association's activities. "An

member of the organization, and to
hold the contests free of charge, will
arouse more enthusiasm among the
speakers and augment Michigan spirit
by swelling the attendance at all of
the events. Large audiences are the
incentive for the best work."
B. C. Wilson's Talk on Associated
Press One of Most In-
teresting Lectures
Lectures from many prominent
newspaper men have made an inter-
esting supplement to the course in
journalism offered by Lyman L. Bry-
son this semester. Among the speak-
ers were B. C. Wilson, Michigan man-
ager of the Associated Press; Talcott
Williams, head of the Col-umbia School
of Journalism; Stuart Perry, editor
of the Adrian Telegram; A. L. Weeks,
dramatic critic of the Detroit News;
Miss.Charlotte Tarsney, of- the Detroit
News; W. B. Shaw, editor of the Mich-
igan Alumnus, and Burt Thomas, car-
toonist on the Detroit News. Besides
these talks, there was a lecture on the
law of libel, by Prof. H. L. Wilgus, of
the Law School.'
What was probably one of the most
interesting lectures was Mr. B. C.
Wilson's discussion of the functions
and purposes of the Associated Press,
which was given on May 24. As a bit
of advice to prospective journalists,
Mr. Wilson read a list of rules for cor-
respondents which was sent out by

leave the foot of Woodward avenue
at 8:00 o'clock, eastern time. Tick-
ets, which may be secured at Quarry's
and Sheehan's, sell for 50 cents.
War Makes Library Books Hard to Get
Owing to the fact that many Euro-
pean printing shops have shut down
because of the war, those which rep-
resent the University of Michigan li-
brary in European countries have met
with some difficulty in procuring
books. There has been some trouble
in shipping, although books which are
mailed in small lots seem to reach
the library in as good shape as ever.

given work of temporary nature at the

still harassing the activities of the

Report Favors Scheme of New System
for Examinations
With the final report of the honor
consideration committee of the engi-
neering college, as well as engineering
articles, the May issue of the Michi-
gan Technic appeared for sale Friday.
The report of the honor committee
includes a number of conclusions ar-
rived at, and says that an honor sys-
tein, adapted to local conditions, would
improve the morale, efficiency and
standing of the college. The commit-
tee believes that such a system could
be successfully inaugurated, if an
"honor spirit" were built up, but it
thinks that such a spirit has not suf-
ficiently matured in the college to war-
rant the immediate adoption of an hon-
or system. The committee recom-
mends that a permanent committee be
appointed immediately to continue the
work of the temporary one, and that
this committee carry on a campaign
of education concerning the honor sys-
