William faversham at the Whitney 'TO BE GIVI RY SENIOR LAWS
One of the most interesting offerings
of the current season will be the en- Special Favors and Several Featur-1

stage in recent years. In Chicago, day party under a new guise. Spe-

where the piece was presented for a
long and prosperous engagement this
season, the critics agreed that it was
the best play and the best acting of
the year. The story of "The Hawk"
has to do with the evils of gambling
and it graphically illustrates how
a extravagance and gaming may make
rack and ruin of the lives with
which they come in contact. The dia-
e, logue is brilliant and the story is told
e, with a touch of melodrama. The ap-
peal of the piece is one which reaches
out to all classes of playgoers. There
is laughter and tears in the telling.
Mr. Faversham has a part which de-
- -ands the use of all his talents as
an interpreter of modern men of the
c, world. It is several seasons since
e he has created such a character and
it is a genuine pleasure to see him
again in such a role.
e Reelarld as Hamlet at the Whitney
To performs with real success the
character of Shakespeare's "Hamlet"
demands qualifi(ations of so extraor-
dinary a nature that a celebrated critic
declared that only once in fifty years
was found an actor adequately equip-
ped for the task. The requirements
are physical distinction, a trained voice
and body and the intelligence of the
highest. Added to this there must be
imaginative temperament and a depth
of soul rarely found. The critics of
New York have declared John E. Kel-
lard to possess all these qualifications.
William Winter and Allen Dale have
declared him the most brilliant of all
contemporary actors. His run of
"Hamlet" at the Harris and Garden
theatres, which reached 102 nights
of performances, November 18, 1912,
to March 1, 1913, placed him by com-
mon consent at the head of his calling.
Mr. Kellard will appear as "Hamlet"
at the Whitney theatre February 23
> and 24.
All material relating to sororities,
fraternities, and campus organizations
which has not been corrected and re-
turned to the office of the 1916 Mic'i-
ganensian, must be in the hands of
Manager Louis Bruch by 5:00 o'clock
today. Those seniors who have not
posed for their pictures as yet are
warned that this is the final date on
which they may do so. Work on the
year book is progressing rapidly, and
the members of the staff are putting
forth every effort to make it one of
the most interesting and attractive
ever published at Michigan.
H. E. Volhnper Breaks Three Records
New York, Feb. 18.-Herbert E. Voll-
mer, of Columbia University, made two
world's records and one American rec-
ord in winning the 220-yard swimming
championship of the Metropolitan as-
sociation of the A. A. U. in the New
York A. C. tank. Vollmer's time for
the full distance was 2 minutes 24 4-5
seconds, which was three-fifths of a
econd better than Daniels' world's rec-
ord, made in Pittsburg in 1909. At
the 200-meter mark, Vollmer's time
was 2 minutes 23 4-5 seconds, a world's
record. Vollmer's time for 200 yards
was 2 minutes 10 4-5 seconds, letter-
ing a record made by Healey' of Aus-
tralia, by one second.
