As a continuation of the jubilee
celebration which marks the fiftieth
anniversary of the establishment of
the Young Women's Christian Asso-
ciations throughout the country, two
receptions will be held Tuesday after-
noon, honoring the organization of the
Young Women's Christian association
affiliated with the University of Michi-
gan.
Miss Leslie Blanchard, of New York
city, will be the guest of honor at both
receptions, since she has come to
Ann Arbor as the special jubilee guest
of Newberry Y. W. C. A. Her presence
is of particular interest because her.
official relation to the Young Women's
Christian association is that of nation-
al secretary in charge of state univer-
sity work.
The first reception will be from 2:00
to 5:00 o'clock in the Martha Cook
building.
The advisory board will entertain
the faculty women at tea from 4:00 to
6:00 o'clock in Newberry hall. The
guests of honor include Mrs. H. B.
Hutchins, Mrs. H. B. Joy, Mrs. A. C.
Angell, Miss Leslie Blanchard, Miss
Mary Turner and Mrs. C. W. Gilkey.
VIVES LECTURE ON SOCIALISM
Mrs. I. P. Stokes Secured to Explain
Doctrines to Students
Mrs. Rose Pastor Stokes, noted so-
cialist and lecturer, has been secured
by the university Socialist society to1
give an address before students of
the university some time the latter
part of March on the subject, "What
the Socialists Want, and Why They
Want It."
Mrs. Stokes, who was born in Rus-
sia, was formerly engaged in news-
paper work in New York City. In 1903,
soon after her marriage with J. G.
Phelps Stokes, both she and her hus-
band became interested in the cause
of socialism and have since been
among its mosi active exponents in
this country.
In addition to being an eloquent and
convincing speaker, Mrs. Stokes is
recognized as a poetess of consider-
able ability.

Fierce chiefs in council, the wig-

Mr. Kellerd has surrounded himself
with the strongest possible Shake-
spearean company he could secure.
On account of Sothern-Marlowe having
retired and Mr. Mantell going before
the screen, he has been able to secure
the most famous Shakespearean act-
ors. His productions are complete in
every detail and no pains have been
spared to make this the most com-
plete organization on tour.
"The Hawk"-Whitney
"In this play Mr. Faversham is a
graceful adventurer-a Hungarian no-
bleman who has taken to cheating at
cards with the connivance of his wife,"
writes Mr. Charles Collins in the Chi-
cago Post, referring to William Faver-
sham's great play "The Hawk," which
comes to the Whitney theatre for one
performance only next Saturday night.
"He has the code of an aristocratic
bandit who resdrts to the tricks of the
card table to win what his ancestors
would have taken by the sword, and
the frivolous woman whom he has

married is his inspiration for pillage.
He cheats in order that he may be
able to gratify her every whim, for
his love for her is a grand passion,
and as a lover he is perfection itself.
'The Hawk' is, in fact, a love romance
of unusual depth of feeling. The story
of this gambler and his wife has rather
a lyrical and exalted quality which is
a welcome relief from the bread-and-
butter romances of the average play."
At the Majestic
"Vaudeville that is vaudeville"
opened at the Majestic theatre last
night for a three-day run.
"The Volunteers," a quartet that has
won laurels all over the country, made
their first local appearance. They
open their act in a peculiar way, lead-
ing the audience to believe that one
of them is to give the whole show. He
asks for volunteers. The leader of
the orchestra, a stage hand and finally
"the boob" are pressed into service,
and the fun and singing .coinmence.
A clever comedy dramatic playlet,
"A Truthful Liar," was presented by

SUNDAY PROGRAM HO
INTEREST OF AUDIEK
Louis P. Hail Discusses Ambu1k-
Work Before Michigan Union
Members
The meeting held at the Union 1
Sunday afternoon was one of the la
est and best that has ever been h
there under thehdirection of the Sund
afternoon committee. Louis P. H
Jr., talked in a direct and infor
way about the work of the Americ
amlbulance in Europe, and showed
the neighborhood of one hundred slid
to illustrate his points.
After the meeting, there was a ge
eral discussion, during which que
tions were asked of the speaker. Tl
interest which was shown at that ti
would indicate that the project f
representative ambulances from Mich
gan will be well received when it ge
under way. Contrary to his plan, M
Hall did not pick a student leader
the meeting, but will probably do th
in a day or so.
The success of last Sunday's after
noon program was so marked tha
the committee chairman, Arthur Tor
rey, '16, has decided to have anothe
this Sunday, when the senior literar
and senior engineer classes will en
tertain thq campus at the Union with
a competitive program. The details
are now being arranged, and will be
announced within a few days.

Mr. John E. Kellerd, who is probab-
Men of the High North, fierce moun- ly the foremost actor of our age, will
tainĀ§ love you; bring to the Whitney theatre a Shake-
Proud rivers leap when you ride on spearean repertoire, consisting of
their breast. Hamlet, Merchant of Venice, and Mac-
See, the austere sky, pensive above
you,
Dons all her jewels to smile on your3
rest.
Children of Freedom, scornful of
frontiers,r
We who are weaklings honor your
worth.
Lords of the wilderness, Princes of
Pioneers,
Let's have a rouse that will ringf
round the earth.
-R. W. Service.

Oh! You Say You Get Our Meaningi:
A lady at the --- House told us
that she read this column because she
hated it-it was so mean to the Coo-
eds. Let's see-what nice things can
we say?
* * *
Once again we read the write-up of;
the coming week in the Majestic. And
thrilled? Oh, gracious-Yes!
Which reminds us-from the depths
we gaze upon some of the write-ups
which appear in The Daily-and mar-
vel. The day that we see an account
of an event which does not surpass all
other events of like character--when
we read an article which we feel we
can read without dumping over the
salt barrel-that day will we mark
on the calendar in large and glowing
crimson letters.

On the subject-somebody edited a
word in our Sunday column and made
it read "sacreligious." Willie, will
you get up and tell the gentleman how
to spell the word.

APROPOS?
As soon as a man is entered in the
Medical College he is called Doctor.
Why not call the men in the Law
school by the revered title of Judge?
And as for the Engineers-well-
Blacksmith WOULD be a trifle strain-
ed. Nominations for titles are in or-
der.
We understand that the faculty car-
ries around a hatchet at this time of
the year-honoring G. Washington of
course.
