Promise Some Strking Lighting Ef-
fects for This Year's
The first dress rehearsal of the cast
and chorus of the Union opera, "Tres
Rouge," held at the Whitney theater
last night, was pronounced a .distinct
success by both director and the smnall
audience that witnessed the affair).
"The dress parade tonight was as
good as that of any professional pro-,
duction," said Director Morgan, when
asked as to his opinion of the first
costume rehearsal.
"The scenery," continued Mr. Mor-
gan,,"is wonderful, and I hardly think
I have ever put on a show in which
the costumes were so comple e. In
fact we could have used them. just as
they came for the first show without
any alterations."
Voices in Good Shape
The voices of both cast and chorus
were in excellent shape last night.
Since the songs.and lyrics of the 1916
production are expected to be the big-
°,gest successes, especial attention has
been paid to the care of the voices of.
the leading characters.
The scenery for "Tres Rouge" is
considered the best ever used by any
opera. The coloring effect of the
scenery was described by Mr. Morgan
as being better than that of many pro-
fessional shows.

One of the features of the perform-
ance will be the lighting effects which

Yorker, WTas Once Russiai
Word has been received by the
Michigan chapter of the Intercollegi-
ate Socialist society that Rose Pastor
Stokes is scheduled to speak in Ann
Arbor on March 28. Owing to some
difficulty in securing a hall, definite
arrangements for the lecture have not
yet been completed. Mrs. Stokes prob-
ably will discuss some phases and
means of social reform.
She was born in Russia in 1879 and
three years later went'to London with
her mother. At the age of 11 Rose, ac-
companied by her mother, journeyed
to Cleveland, Ohio, where they workedl
as cigar makers. In 1903 Miss Pastor
acepted a position as editor of thef
Fhglish department of The Jewishl
Daily of New York. The preparationt
for this work she had gained by ard-c
uous study after working hours. Her
spare hours in New York she used in
settlement work among the slums.,
Here she chanced one day to mueet
J. G. Phelps Stokes, multi-millionaare
and brother of Anson Stokes, secr-
tary of Yale university.t
Their subsequent marriage a year
later was a suprise to eastern society.
The surprise was still greater when a.
short time afterwards Mr. Stokes re-
signed from the directorate of the
many corporations of which he wast
a stockholder and announced that hei
and his wife were going to devote their<
time to the, cause of Socialism. Sincer
then Mr. and Mrs. Stokes have been
actively engaged in propaganda work
throughout America.1

El Paso, Mar. 13.-Villa has taken

Reports Say American Forces Will Not
Cross from El Paso Into
El Paso, Tex., Mar. 13-General
John J. Pershing left El Paso this
afternoon for the west 'somewhere on
the Mexican border,"'to lead the Amer-
ican forces into Mexico. His plans are
to make a prisoner of Francisco Villa,
the Mexican bandit leader. , Though
silent to the last regarding his move-
ments and keeping his going a se-
cret until the train was ready to leave,
General Pershing is understood to
have entrained for Columbus, New
Mexico, and it is reported that the ex-
pedition will go into Mexico from that
point sometime tomorrow.
At dusk tonight it was known that
no troops had yet crossed into Mexico.
It was also known that the re-enforce-
monts en route to the border from
other points would not reach Colum-
i.; or El Paso in time for entering be-
fore tomorrow. It also became known
that there is no intenthn at present
of taking troops across at El Paso into
Juarez at this time, if at all.
Cavalry Delays Departure
General Pershing left here with the
16th Infantry regiment, following the
Sixth Infantry which entrained this
morning. The Eighth Cavalry, under
orders to Join the expedition into Mexi-
co, did not leave during the day, al-
though in readiness. It was the report
tonight that this regiment was await-
ing the arrival of the 23rd Infantry
in El Paso from Galveston before leav-
ing here.
With the arival of the 23rd Infan-
try, that regiment and the Seventh In-
fantry, one-half of the Twentieth In-
fantry, and a light battery of four guns
of the Fifth Field Artillery, will be
left in El Paso to protect the city in
case of trouble when the Eighth Cav-
alry leaves here.
Mountain Batteries Leave
A battalion of light mountain bat-
teries left here for the west last night,
detraining at Columbus. The signal
corps stationed here did not get under
way for the west today but goes as

Plan New Attack
on Verdun Defense

Paris, Mar. 13.-The first day of the
fourth week in the battle of Verdun
was ushered in by greatly increased
artillery fire both on the part of the
Britains and France. At nightfall the
big guns were stll vieing with one
another without pause or abatement.
The day was moniiopolized by artillery,
the clear weather being utilized by
both sides for aerial reconnaisance
work which resulted in anumber of
battles. each side claiming to have
brought down three machines.
Today's activities had all the signs
of a prelude to a new phase in the
contest for the great French barrier
fortress. The German guns kept
battering the French defenses north
of the stronghold and on both sides
of the Meuse. New infantry attacks
are looked for tomorrow and the fact
that for the first time since the battle
began the German artillery was di-
rected simultaneously and continu-
ously from all three sides gives rise
to the expectation that the Crown
Prince will attempt to strike simul-
taneous blows by his infantry in a
frontal and two flank attack.
There were, however, also signs of
French intention to launch a huge
counter attack particularly in the
Woevre plain where the French ar-
tillery displayed unusual activity
throughout the day. A new German
infantry drive on the western bank of
the Meuse is foreshadowed by a
statement in the French official night
communication reporting the bom-
bardment of German groups forming
between Forges and the Bois des Cor-
Prof. David Friday to Address Buck-
eye Students Tonight
Ohio students will hold their "Get
Acquainted" smoker at' 7:30 o'clock
this evening at the Union, for the pur-
pose of forming a closer association
among all students from the Buckeye
state. Ohio smokes, drinks, talks and
eats will be the order of the evening.
Prof. David Friday, of the economics
department, will represent the fac-
ulty, with Dean J. DeButts, '18E, and
Halstead Cottington, '19, featuring the
entertainment with a new piano and
banjorine novelty. The "Buckeye or-
chestra," composed entirely of stu-
dents from Ohio, will furnish music
throughout the evening.
"Miquelt et Sa Mere" Product of Team
of Playwrights
Tryouts for "Miquette et Sa Mere,"
the French comedy which will be giv-
en on April 27 by the members of the
Cercle Francais, have begun, and the
cast will be selected within a few
days. The staging of the play is un-
der the direction of Mr. Harry Wann,
of the French department and direc-
tor of the Cercle.'
Flers and Caillavet, the authors who
collaborated in producing this com-
edy, are among France's best known
writers of comedy, and the one which
the Cercle will produce is one of the
most humorous of the long list which
these men wrote. Unfortunately for
French literature M. Caillavet died
recently, thus breaking up a famous
comedy-writing combination.
