OPERA NMS BIG

Ar Presented Before ,a-
JOHN AND GOIRNETZKY HONORED
Featured by the abandon induced by
a lour-night run, "Tres Rouge" closed
its local engagement last night before
a capacity audience made up largely
of mothers, sisters and best girls from
out of town.
If there were "tight places" in Wed-
nesday's performance they were all
used up before last night, for both
chorus and cast had acquired stage
presence to a superlative degree. Fur-
red and bepowdered guests in the boxes
withstood a rapid fire of flirtatious
glances, wafted across the foot-lights
with unconcealed directness, by the
tight corseted show girls.
Many of the muttered phrases, on
the part of the entertainers, intended
only for the stage, were discernible
to mediocre lip readers, and some-
times clearly audible sentences, never
written into the lines, reached five
rows back from the orchestra pit.
The ponies were the worst cut ups
of the lot. Daringly immodest, they
delighted in showing frequent flashes
of silk hosiery and dizzying expanses
of the ruffles which gave substance
'to the light dancing skirts. One of
them even threatened to break up one
of the tableaux by boosting a red-
coated and white-trousered gentle-
man from his place beside Auburnia.
With tfie final curtain, Wap John
was hauled unceremoniously from the
wings and Gornetzky was boosted
over the footlights from the orchestra
pit, to share in the impromptu dance
made up of wigless "women" and hat-
All men taking part in the opera in

FIVE MEDICS GET "A" GRADE
Announcement Just Made of Honor
Students for Last Semester
In announcing the honor students
for last semester the medical school!
was overlooked. In spite of the fact
that the medics are required to put
in more time than other students,
they are able to boast of five all "A"'s.
Of this number two are juniors, Lynn
A. Hoag, Ann Arbor, and Lester C.
Todd, of Detroit, both carrying the
equivalent of 24 hours. The sopho-
mores are: Ray M. Greenthal, Detroit,'
and Washington P. Stone, North East,
Pa., with 22 hours to their credit.
The freshman honor goes to a woman,
Elsie Backus, Ann Arbor.
All of these examinations are taken
under the honor system as has been
the case ever since 1901, when the
honor system was officially establish-
ed in the medical school. This year
they have introduced the system in
recitations to do away with prompting
and open note books. Both systems
have been very successful.

Strenuous efforts are being made

Since this resolution has been acted

this measure in the House today, the
administration stated that it would

early next week.

that General Pershing's forces would
not be permitted to keep Casas Gran-
