lustrates His Theory by Flashlight
of Recent Fresh Soph
Prof. F. N. Scott gave the third of
lectures on the evolution of speech
esterday afternoon in the, natural
6ences lecture room. Using old
intings, prints and wood cuts to
ring out his points, he demonstrated
[. theory of the origin of certain
esttires, and their relation to vocal
An interesting feature of the lec-
tre, and one of the most convincing
rguments for the theory, was a flash-
ghts of the fresh-soph rush taken
6me years ago. Evidently one of the
objects was not aware that the pic-
ire was about to be taken, for in the
nconscious gesture which accom-
anied his emotion is seen a very con-
tucing proof'of Professor Scott's the-
ry. The right hand is raised, and
early covers the mouth.
The date of the third of the series
lectures will be announced later.

Faculty In Favor
of Campus Theater
"I would be in favor of a properly
built and properly conducted theatre
as an addition to the university equip-
ment." This was the statement made
by President Harry B. Hutchins yes-
terday when asked for an opinion con-
cerning the proposed campus theatre.
The fund for the project is to receive
its first contribution from the proceeds
of the Comedy club play, "The Pro-
fessor's Love Story," which will be
staged at the Whitney theatre tomor-
row night.
Prof. Fred N. Scott, of the rhetoric
department, asserted his conviction
that a campus playhouse would have
the effect of strengthening student
dramatics from a literary viewpoint.
'There is need for a center," he
also said, "where the various dra-
matic activities can be brought to-
"It is one of the greatest needs of
the campus," stated Prof. Thomas C.
Trueblood, of the oratory department.1
"Several of us have been striving for
it for some time. We ought to have,
a well constructed theatre, properly1
equipped for scenery and capable of1
seating an audience of from 1,200 to1
1,400. The Comedy club, Oratorical1
association, and French and German,
organization productions would be'
greatly benefitted."j
That the handicap under which stu-
dent dramatics now work at Michi-
gan has been realized for some years
past, was the assertion of Dean John
i. Effinger, of the literary college,
who gave assurance that the provision
of adequate facilities for scenic pro-
ductions had had his support since the
idea was first conceived.
Professors E. M. Bragg, J. C. Par-
ker, J. R. Nelson and A. 0. Lee, all of
the engineering faculty. spoke at the
semi-annual banquet of the Michigan
Iechnic staff at the Delta Cafe last
night. Robert Archer, '16E, acted as
toastmaster, while further short talks
were made by the Technic managing
editor, R. L. McNomee, '17E, associate
editor; G. D. Cooke, '16E, and upper
staff members C. M. Burns, '17E, F. H.
Sweet, '18E, and U. M. Smith, '16E.
The following were awarded fobs: R.
L. McNomee, Robert Archer, U. M.
Smith, J. H. Schmidt, '16E, L. C.
Rowley, '16E, F. K. Hirth, '16E, and
F. E. Rieks, '16E. Robert Erley, '18E,
rendered several piano selections.
Definite Reports Lessen Turk Glories
London, Dec. 16.-The Reuter News
Agency learned that a telegram has
reached London from Bassorah, stat-
ang that Turkish captures of ships be-
tween Ctesiphos and Kut-el-Amara
actually amounted to only one tugboat
and three lighters.
Women Send Fourteen Cases of Cloth-
ing to Poor in Europe
The active efforts of the women in
charge of the War Relief work were
culminated recently, when fourteen
cases of new clothing were shipped to
Europe to ease the sufferings of the
poverty stricken victims of the pres-
ent war.
Shipments are made for the central
powers through the Red Cross and
for the allies through the War Relief
Clearing House. Persons wishing to
do so may indicate' where their con-
tributions of money or materials are

to be sent and they will be forwarded
through these channels.
The committee wishes to express
their thanks through The Michigan
Daily for the many contributions of
money and material donated and for
the generous co-operation of the mer-
chants of Ann Arbor.

At The TheatresJ
The headliner, which closes the
show at the Majestic, is Jackson and1
McLaren, "The Australian Woodchop-
pers," two native Australians who
handle the axe with considerable dex-t
terity and show how trees really{
should be felled. Preceding the act
proper is a motion picture taken in
their native woods, showing the men 1
at their work. These young men claim
the wood chopping championship of
the world. They have played on the
Keithand Orpheum circuits for sev-
eral years and their word is undis-
Guerro and Carmen, European mu-
sicians, entertained with classical se-
lections on the violin and harp.
Maxine Brothers open the program
with an acrobatic novelty. They carry
with them a white fox terrier, Bobby,
who is a wonderful dog.
Now for something new theatrically
-a fresh play named "September
Morn," having selected this popular 4,
subject for a lively piece with music
which introduces a big company of 25
people. The chorus trips through the
latest Tangos, Shark Swish Dips and
the Hesitation fetchingly over which
the country has fairly gone wild. The
costuming and scenery are brilliant.
"September Morn" will be at the Ma-

Foreign Disputes and International
Topics to Be Discussed
by Authority
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, of the politi-
cal science department, will deliver
two papers in Washington during the
coming vacation.
The first of these papers will be de-I

livered before the Pan-American Sci-
entific Congress and will be on,
"Training in Political Science for In-
ternational Commerce." The other
paper is to be read before the Amer-
ican Society of International Law. Its
subject is, "The Justicibility of Inter-
national Disputes." Professor Reeves
is an acknowledged authority on In-
ternational law and kindred subjects
and these papers will undoubtedly
prove to be of great value.

Illinois Club to Have Private Car
It has been definitely decided by the
committee in charge to have an Illi-
nois club car attached to the Michigan
Central train leaving Ann Arbor at
1:17 o'clock next Tuesday for Chicago.
The car will be open to all Sucker
state men leaving on that train. Good
times are being arranged to relieve
the monotony of the trip home.
