PROCEEDS OF BRYANTALK
TO BE USED IN EUROPE
I. 14. C. A. Branch Sends Largest
Single Sum for Use in Russian
The proceeds from William J. Bry-
an's lecture Saturday night which
amounted to over $200, will be used
as funds for Y. M. C. A. trench work-
ers in Europe. This sum is the largest
that any individual branch associa-
tion has yet contributed.
More than $1,000,000 has been rais-
ed by John R. Mott, general secre-
tary of World's Student Federation,
through Young Men's Clristian Asso-
ciations of America, for the allevia-
tion of suffering in Europe. Most of
this money has been used to aid pris-
oners in the stockade prisoner camps
of Russia. An association secretary
is sent to each camp with $1,000 and
he sees to the building of a hut or tent
for rooms, the organization of the
prisoners for educational training and
the expenditure of the money for
bocks and newspapers. Before this
wor! was started prisoners were left
for months in these stockades with-
out work, recreation or nes from
the outside world.
- Last November a general appeal
was made to associations all over the
country for funds for this work. The
local association secured Mr. Bryan
to lecture here with the understand-
ing that the proceeds would be used
for this purpose.

1916 opera, yesterday afternoon. "I

Yale Commons and the Harvard Un-

too, fail to concentrate student atten-
tion. Pennsylvania is unfortunate in
being located in a city. The Mask
and Wig club, which puts on the op-
eras at Pennsylvania, has club rooms
in Philadelphia, just a few minutes'
ride from the university campus, but
they are not adequate for complete
rehearsals. There I have to call up
students individually to get them to

that is necessary is to post a notice

Now that the Revue des Nations is

Weeks of interrupted study, nights
of rehearsals, expensive outfits, stag-

WRITERS ASSERT ORCHESTRA TO
HAVE BEEN CHOSEN PARTLY
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
The students of the university have
been led to believe that the positions
in the Union Opera are awarded on a
competitive basis. We feel that the
Union has willfully misrepresented
the matter as regards the selection of
an opera orchestra.
A try-out was announced through
The Michigan Daily. Several stu-]
dents under an impression, reason-
able enough, that the personnel of
the orchestra was to be determined
by this try-out, went through the irk-
some ordeal cheerfully enough. The
names of the successful candidates
were posted on the Union bulletin
board under the caption "Union Opera
Orchestra 1916." Some, taking these
results seriously, appeared at three
consecutive rehearsals. No intima-
tion was given that they were not to
continue to appear at rehearsals.
On Saturday evening a new list of
names appeared on the same bulletin
board under the caption, "Orchestra
This list, while it excluded several
who had been selected at the try-outs,
included the names of at least five
who had not been at the try-out and
a few entirely new ones. It was ob-
vious that the positions, which, to all
intents and purposes, were to have
been occupied by those successful ii,
the try-out, were now to be occupied
by persons who were never near the
try-out, and even by persons whose
names did not appear on the first list

lection is so subtle as to evade

dividuals were called upon and asked
if they desired to play, after the posi-
tions were already filled through what
one would suppose tc be the legiti-
mate way, a competitive try-out on a
basis of merit. Now if the manage-
ment desires to choose the orchestru
on a basis of personal invitation or
favoritism let it do so but let it not
pretend before the public eye to use
a standard of competition on a basis
of merit! It is exceedingly unfortun-
ate that the Union should, either di-
rectly or indirectly, be responsible for
such an occurrence as the past week
has brought to light, at a time when
its integrity is the path by which it
is appealing for support to the alumni
and students of the university.
