18 ENGINEER FAVORS
HALT OFTOQUE ABUSE
PLEADS FOR STUDENT ACTION TO
STOP DISREGARD FOR OLD TRA-
DITION OF INELIGIBLES
Editor of The Michigan Daily:
With the advent of the cool weath-
er, we again have with us the class
toque, which represents much more
than a comfortable and efficient head
covering. It is part of an old estab-
lished Michigan tradition and It is
with not a little pride and sentiment
that most of us purchase and wear the
toques of our respective classes each
year. Are we to witness again this
year, as in years past, the corrupting
of this tradition by allowing others
than students to wear class toques?
At the game Saturday I noticed
three youngsters, two of whom wore
senior toques and the third a sopho-
more toque, all apparently new. This
is but one example and there were
many others. Surely in most cases,
the clothiers can tell when toques are
not purchased by students, and a sub-
stitution of some other style made. I
am sure that the student body as a
whole will agree that some decisive
step should be taken to prevent this
disregard of Michigan custom, which
for the sake of a small monetary re-
turn, makes it possible for ineligible
parties to obtain the toques.

SEEK TO PLACE LOCAL OPTION
QUESTION ON COUNTY BALLOTS
Special Committee Selected to Verify
Signatures Received from
Entire County
Local option petitions submitting
the question, "Shall the manufacture
of liquors and liquor traffic be pro-
hibited within the county?" have been
filed in the offices of the board of
supervisors at the court house.
The petitions are signed by a host
of names covering the entire county
by townships and wards, and affidavits
attached thereto attest the genuine-
ness of the signatures of the individ-
ual sheets. They will go to a special
committee for examination and veri-
fication, and if found to be correct in
form and legality, the election must
be ordered as petitioned for.

AT THE WHITNEY
"Potash and Perlmutter," that rare
combination of humor, pathos and
characterization, comes to the Whit-
ney theatre Monday, October 18.
The story of "Potash and Perlmut-
ter" deals with the trials and tribula-
tions of these two partners of the
cloak and suit trade through their
generous championship of, Boris An-
drieff, a young Russian, whom the
representatives of the Czar are trying
to drag back to the country of his
birth and to a lifetime in Siberia. They
pledge their all' to go his bail and
when, through their ignorance of the
law, he starts for Canada to gain a
respite from the trickery of the Rus-
sian representatives, and the partners
are in danger of forfeiting their busi-
ness and their homes, the story takes
a serious turn indeed.
But Boris learns through the news-
papers of the danger of his benefact-
ors and returns in time to save them
from ruin and to learn of his com-
plete vindication. There is plenty of
romance to add to the charm of the
play, for Boris marries "Abe's" young
daughter, while Perlmutter wins a
"lady designer" with a business head
like Carnegie and a shape like Lillian

WOMEN ON DAILY IDEA
SECONDED BY GRADUATE
ROBERT P. LANE SEES DAWN OF
NEW AWAKENING IN THOUGHT
GIVEN IN PAPER'S EDITORIALS
To the Editor of The Michigan Daily:
To at least one, who has been long
in college, The Daily's present atti-
tude toward having women on its
staff, as set forth in your recent edi-
torials and in the communication from
Miss Miriam Heideman, betokens the
dawn of a new awakening. I will
not be trite enough to merely say that
it is a step in the emancipation of wo-
men. It is a step in a program vastly
more difficult of achievement than
that, and one less consistently striven
for-namely, the emancipation of men.
Yours respectfully,
ROBERT P. LANE, Grad.
AT THE MAJESTIC
The bill at the Majestic for the first
half of this week is one of a far bet-
ter grade than usual and is opened
by Sadie Fondelier, the clever tight-
rope artist, in original dances and
stunts.
Harry Antrim and Betsy Vale give
a telephone song and offer some good
dances, unique gowns, and a burlesque
on the 'cello.
The Versatile Four appear in Chi-
nese costumes and sing several catchy
melodies, and with snappy banjo
numbers and Italian street musicians
who sing and play on a number of in-
struments, make a hit.
"The Summer Girls," in their act
in a soda fountain at the sea-shore,
show up to advantage.
Zelaya, the eminent son of ex-Presi-
dent Zelaya, of Nicaragua, a musician
of unusual ability, gives two numbers,
"Staccato Caprice," and "Valse de
Concert," in which the pianist shows
a well-rounded technique, clear octave
work, true rythme and artistic phras-
ing. Mr. Zelaya also gives some very
clever and pleasing rag numbers
which are technically difficult.
Today Mr. Zelaya will offer the fol-
lowing numbers: "Blue Danube
Waltzes," Straus-Levhine; "Spanish
Serenade," Cervantez, and "The Ros-
ary," left hand arrangement.
Tomorrow the program which Mr.
Zelaya gives is to be as follows:
'Symphonic Poem," Moskouski;
"Dream of Love," Listz, and Para-
phrase of Sextete from Lucia, by Ze-
laya himself.

TO SHOW EXPOSITION
IN MOVIES AT WHITNEY
LYMAN HOWE TO EXHIBIT PIC
TURES OF HIS TRIP THROUGH
PANAMA CANAL TO TWO FAIRS
A trip through the Panama Canal to
the Panama expositions both at San
Francisco and San Diego is the timely
feature which will be presented by
Lyman H. Howe at the Whitney the-
atre Tuesday, October 19. The mag-
ical beauty of both expositions makes.
it plain that they were builded with
infinite care, time, thought, labor, and
money. Each is an achievement to
celebrate another achievement-the
completion of the Pamana Canal. And
it is claimed that Howe's reproduction
both of the notable event and equally

notable celebrations is an achievement
as noteworthy in its way as the cleav-
ing of the continents at Panama from
the Atlantic to the Pacific or the cele-
brations.
Amid the wealth of picturesque
plazas and arched gates, portals lead-
ing to quiet patios, pergolas,.etc., the
spectator unconsciously is carried back
to the traditions of ancient and med-
iaeval times, and rendered entirely
forgetful of the turmoil of the twen-
tieth century. No other land has quite
so much brilliant sky, flashing sea
and sunlit peaks, and it is here in this
setting of supreme loveliness en-
hanced by man's skilled ingenuity and
enterprise as exemplified by the ex-
position that Howe's photographers
have wrought a marvelous reproduc-
tion which no one can afford to miss.
