performance of "Tres Rouge," held
at the Whitney theatre last night, re-
ceived an ever-ready applause, and will
go down as one of the most finished
shows ever produced by the Mimes.
The co-operation of cast, chorus, and
orchestra was largely responsible for
the success of last night's perform-
Although the initial show was mark-
ed by a lack of orchestra co-operation,
the work of the musicians last night
was greatly improved, and together
with unusual acting and chorus work.
allowed little opportunity for criticism.
Walter Atlas, as Hezekiah Gregg, the
hen-pecked husband, played his dif-
ficult role in a natural manner, and
has undoubtedly proven himself to be
the "find" of this year's production.
His ability to change his deposition
from that of fear for his wife to pom-
posity and courage for his friends,
brought out a continuous round of ap-
plause from the appreciative audience.
Songs Are Big hits of Show
To mark off distinctly the relative
merit of the cast members would be
a difficult task. Carlson in his foot-
ball: song, "Men of the Maize and
Blue," supplied the pep and vim of a
typical football crowd, and was forced
to give repeated encores. This song,
the biggest hit of the show, is almost
certain to be one of the most popu-
lar songs of Michigan students.
Alongside of "Men of the Maize and
Blue" was "Out in My Old Town Can-
oe," sung by Grover and the chorus.
The swing and catchy Mfusic of this
song added life to the show, and the
unique entrance of Grover, seated in
the canoe, which was held on the
shoulders of several chorus men, gives
the entire/ scene unusual attractive-
ness. Grover, as "Auburnia," gives a
clever female impersonation,. His
dancing and singing ability make him
as good a leading lady as the Mimes
has ever produced.
Morrison Wood takes his role with
his accustomed easiness, and succeeds
in putting over a clever dance with
Grover. Wood's general appearance
marks him as a natural actor, and
with these qualifications he is en-
abled to lend a more than amateurish
air to the performance.
Sikes Plays Part in Good Manner
Chase B. Sikes, playing the part
of Brezanio, the temperamental ppet,
has the necessary vocal talent for
his part, and with Grover makes the
song, "Love Is a Rainbow" one of the
most pleasing of the production. Sikes'
acting has improved considerably, and
rlhe handles his poetical lines with the
required amount of sentimlit.
In addition to this the work of Kas-
berger, the butler, Hawkes, as Billy
Swift, Grant Cook, as Mrs. Hezekiah
Gregg, and the two red-headed girls.
Pardee and Palma, and Cunningham as
Spiffins, is 'worthy of considerable
praise. The working together of the
entire cast throughout the whole show
marks it as possessing a well-balanced

Mr. Albert Lindquest, the tenor so-

French lines, were forced to fail back
to the Bois des Corbeaux. No sooner
had they begun their retreat when
the French artillery opened a concen-
trated fire upon them, causing serious
losses in their ranks.
This was the only offensive attempt-
ed by the Germans in this sector to-
day, although on the right bank of the
river the artillery of both sides great-
ly increased its activity in the regions
of Douaumont and Vaux. German
troops in movements in this region
were brought under French fire on
several occasions, and it is inferred
that these troops may have been in-
tended for some infantry action which
was blocked by the effectiveness of
the French guns.
The artillery of both sides contin-
ued the cannonading on the slope be-
tween the Woevre and the heights of
The French bomlardment of German

TTAC D, IS REPORT

Victim Vessels; May Reopen
Washington, Mar. 16.-Unofficial re-
ports of the sinking of the- Dutch pas-l
senger ship Tubantia and the attempt-
ed torpedoing of the French passen-
ger ship Patria reached the State de-
partment this afternoon.
The department is suspending judg-
ment until it has the facts, but in-
vestigation by the United States gov-
ernment is certain. The submarine
issue of the central powers may again,
become acute as a result.-1
* Facts which appear as already es-
tablished are that both vessels were
unarmed passenger ships. Both hact
American passengers on board, and in
both cases the lives of these Americans1
were jeopardized. Reports conflict as
to whether the Tubantia was torpe-l
doed or struck a mine.
nI the case of the Patria there seems
to be no divergence of opinion relativel
to the attemptof the submarine to
send this ship to the bottom, If state-
ments attributed to passengers are re-
liable. For this reason the Patria
case may have an important bearing
on the submarine issue.

El Paso, [lar. 16.-Orders were re-
ceived today by the military author-
ities in Juarez, according to a state-
nent by General Gavira, that, while a
recip rocal arrangement existed where-
by the American troops were given a
right of way into Mexico on their puni-
tive exp,,dition, no contemplation of
the permianent presence of troops will
be sanctioned in any of the villages or
towns in Me"ico. General Gavira also
stated that he had sent a notice to the
commanders of the garrisons at Ma-
era, Ca sas G rands, and Pearson, no-
ifying them of the reciprocal agree-
ment between the two governments
and iutiructing thcm to notify the peo-
ple of their respective communities so
that the passage of the American
troops would not be misunderstood.
"This,' said General Gavira, " has
been done and the people in northern
Chihuahua know of the pursuit of Vil-
la. The situation is a very delicate
one and we took this step as a pre-
caution. I wish also to state that
while we arc carrying tut to the let-
ter the instructions of the first chief,
the situation is one that is misunder-
stood by many American people. 'That
we carry out our orders is but right
and proper, but we still feel that the
Villa problem is ours and that we
Mexicans can solve it."
Ob se=on Friendly in Message
That the Carranza government is
showing good faith in its agreement
with the American forces was evidentI
today by the receipt of the following
message from General Obregon, Mexi-
can Secretary of War, to all Mexican
border garrisons and p.resumably iL
all Mexican garrisons where Carranza
troops are in control:
"A treaty having been negotiated
between our government and the Unit-
ed States in order that the troops of
ou- respective governments may cross
the international line to pursue ban-
dits who ar committing depredations
along our frontier, I hereby advise all

stance to place themselves in co-oper-
ation with the military authorities of

expressed the opinion tonight that the
bandit would be turned over to the
Carranza authorities. In substantia-
tion of these assertions it was pointed
out that as far as the Washington gov-
ernment is officially informed Villa
has not been indicted for any of the
murders committed at Columbus, nor
is he, as far as is known here, under
indictment for any crime committed
in the United States.
Would Relieve V. S. of Responsibility
Villa is expected to be shot summar-
ily if he is caught alive and turned
over to the Mexican authorities. In
this way the United States would be
relieved of direct responsibility for
his fate, and it is also pointed out
that such an outcome of the pursuit
would tend to re-establish Carranza in
the eyes of his own people.
