We hereby give notice that the Pit
will cease its operations with this
issue. The reasons are two-first, be-
caus of the difficulty we experience
every morning in finding this column
n its entirety. As we take great pleas-
ure in reading this column, and tell-
ing our friends how good it is, it is
discouraging to have to spend two or
three hours in locating it. Secondly,
our salary it not enough to warrant
our not accepting better positions.
We were at a loss as to how to pre-
sent these reasons, but not wishing to
prove unnecessarily mercenary, we
chose the above order. Money is
farthest from our thoughts.
And of course there are other rea-
sons. One of them is the following

University Symphony Orchestra Under
Albert Lockwood to Play
on Jan. 28
The University Symphony orchestra,
with Albert Lockwood as soloist, will
play in Hill auditorium at 4:15 o'clock
afternoon, January 28. Attention is
called to the fact that this regular con-
cert in the faculty concerts series will
be on Friday instead of Thursday.
Tschaikowsky's piano concerto in B
flat minor, which has not been played
in Ann Arbor for six years, will be
the feature of the program. It is one
of the most thrilling and satisfying
works of the great Russian composer,
and the rehearsals which the orches-
tra has devoted to its preparation have
been so numerous and painstaking
that a worthy performance is assured.
Two rather elaborate dances on Ital-
ian popular themes by a prominent
present-day composer, and an exqui-
site little Motet of Mozart, played by
the strings, complete the program.
Two Piedmontese Dances. ..Sinigaglia

EMrs. Campbell a't the Whitney
Ti e anouncemenn that Mrs. Pat-
rick Campbell will present a comedy
from the pen of George Bernard Shaw
at the Whitney theatre February 2, is
of more than passing interest to Ann
Arbor theatre-goers.
"Pygmalion," the latest effort of the
gifted Irish-Englishman, is an appeal-
ing .romance. It tells in five acts the
story of a London flower girl, Eliza
Doolittle. As Pygmalion, the sculptor,
molded Galatea, so Henry Higgins
molds the cockney flower girl to the
graces and apparances of a duchess.
In doing this he awakens her soul.
She falls in love with him and the ap-
peal of the play is the story of her
romance. Eliza's father, a member of
the undeservedly poor, rises to a po-
sition in the middle class, which he
says he abhors. Having brought these
two characters of the streets into a
position of prosperity, Mr. Shaw leaves
the audience to its own conclusions
as to what eventually becomes of them.
In appearing in this play, Mrs. Pat-
rick Campbell, the celebrated English
actress, is making another American
tour. "Pygmalion" is one of the re-
cent London successes and in playing
It in this country, Mrs. Campbell is
causing it to have just as great an
appeal here.
Majestic to Show War Pictures
Actual war pictures are to be seen
at the Majestic during the three days,
January 1 to February 2. These pic-
tures are not only authentic, but also
official. They show the Germans and
Austro-Hungarians preparing for bat-
tle, the aeroplane tactics of the Teu-
tonic. armies, and an entire battle.
The daring of the photographer in
taking these pictures is remarkable.
Shells whiz by his camera and he is
nearly injured, but he never falters.
Life in the trenches is shown and
barbed wire entanglements charged
with electricity are in -clear view of
the audience.

ists will appear in the opera, and Pav-
