Prof Paul Van den Ven, the noted
Belgian histarian delivered the sec-
ond of his lectures, "Byzantine Monu-
ments in Italy," in the upper lecture
of Alumni hall last night.
The lecture was profusely illustrat-
ed with lantern slides depicting the
work of the monkish artisans of the
third, fourth, and tenth centuries still
to be seen in the churches of Ravenna
Not the least beautiful of the slides
portrayed the mosaics begun in the
time of Theodosius, as well as the.
architecture and design of St. Mark's.
The speaker also dwelt upon the price-
less relics of ivories, enamels, and
silver and gold ornaments which of-
fer much help in compiling the his-
tory of the early Christian jehurch.

Everything is in readiness for the
"Menaebhmi," the Latin play to be
staged in University hall at 8:00
o'clock this evening. The last rehears-
al went off with so great smoothness
that the production tonight is sure to
be a success.
Under the direction of Pauline O.
Emerson, '16, and Prof. Herbert A.
Kenyon, of the department of ro-
mance languages, the play has been
staged as it was when it was first
acted in 215 B. C. Under the direc-
tion of Prof. Orma F. Butler, of the
Latin department a careful study has
been made of the Pompeiian wall
paintings, miniatures, manuscripts of.
Terence and other original specimens
of Roman actors' costumes, and the
effort has been to follow these orig-
inals closely both in line and color.
The staging of the production alone
will be of invaluable information to
rtachers and instructors of the Latin
language and Roman and ancienthis-
tory. The sale of tickets has ex-
ceeded all expectations and the seats
have been limited in number in order
that all attending may be assured suit-'
GIRLS PLAY SUCCESSFUL
First Production, Given in honor of
Seniors, shows Energy of
Third Year Women
"The Yankie Yogie," twelfth annual
play given by the Juniors in honor of
the Seniors last night, went off with-
out a hitch.
To Miss Ruth Lenzer, the writer of
the book, belongs the credit for the
absorbing and amusing plot, while the:
songs, written by Olga Shinkman, Jo-
sephine Randall, and Christine String-
er are sure to be popular. The scene
is st in Japan, which forms a charm-
ing background for the ,romance of
Prince Kosa, and Princess Asaya, as
well as that of Richard Brown of Ann
Arbor and his fiancee, Mary.
'Miss Ruberta Woodworth was excel-
lent as the hero, who, in a series of
mishaps, was forced to take the place
of the priest, the %Yogi, thus giving
the title to the play. The entire cast
was well chosen, and beside Miss
Woodworth as Richard, Olive Hartzig
as Mary, Inez Gose as Asayo, and An-
ita Kelley as the priest deserve special
inention for the splendid way in which
they entered into their parts. The
choruses also did fine work.
The success of the play was due in
large part to Professor Brumm's faith-
ful work in training the girls.

ELECTION MONDAY IMPORTANT
With election day coming next Mon-
day, the opponents and proponents of
the charter revision proposition, which
is the point drawing the chief amount
of attention, are lining up preparatory
to a big fight. Although the city niana-
ger plan of government, which is the
bone of contention, does not come up
directly at this time, it is thought that
the attitude of the voters April 3 will
have a lot to do with -the final decision
of the charter revision commission.
The Civic association, in backing up
the city manager plan, is pointing to
the present inefficiency of city man-
agement, and is declaring that the
joining of all department heads into
one body and under one direct man-
agement will mean both administrative
and financial gain. Especially does

WHAT'S GOING ONJ
New York, Mar. 29.-The guilt of
Dr. Arthur Warren Waite is so well
established in the judgement of Dis-
trict Attorney Swann, established not
merely by a well linked chain of cir-
cumstantial evidence but by confes-
sions which were curiously amplified
today, that the investigation is now
turning to indications of blackmail
The person most wanted in this con-
nection is Eugene Oliver Kane, em-
balmer for John S. Potter, of the
Plowright Undertaking establishment,
who was accused of receiving $9,0001
for agreeing to doctor specimens of
embalming fluid with arsenic, and to
swear that arsenic was used in em-
balming the body of John E. Peck.
The disappearance of Kane made
necessary in Judge Swann's opinion
long and detailed questioning of Kane's
employer, John S. Potter, as to whe-
ther or not Waite had told the truth in
that Potter was aware of the scheme
to save Waite's life by putting ar-
senic in the embalming fluid. .1

well prepared for their contests.
The six men comprising the two teams
will each receive the Gray prize of
$50, which is given each year to the
men on the Mid-West teams. This
prize was established last year when
the league was formed, and is pa id
from the interest on $10,000 principal,
