PRESIDENT WILSON AT
WHITE HOUSE
DEBATES EXPECTED TO
BREAK OUT TOMORROW
Criticism Looked for from Radical
Group Fighting Scheme of
Internationalization
Washington, Feb. 18.Opposition in
the senate to the league of nations
began today.
Senator Borah of Idaho, a republi-
can member of the foreign relations
committee, formally declined ,to ac-
cept Wilson's invitation to the White
House dinner Feb. 26. Senator Poin-
dexter of Washington announced that
he would speak tomorrow in criti-
cism of the plan. General debates
may follow the address.
"League Unconstitufional"
Senator Vardaman, of Mississippi,
Democrat, declared the league was
unconstitutional, and criticised Pres-
ident 'Wilson for asking congress to
remain silent on the subject until he
returned to Washington.
Several Republican members of the
senate committee stated privately to-
day that they would not regard them-
selves bound by confidences and that
they would accept the President's in-
vitation with reluctance.,
Senator Borah is one of a group of
senators, which includes some Dem-
ocrats as well as Republicans, who
oppose any sort of internationalization
and whose opposition to the league as
proposed has been regarded as a
foregone conclusion.
Debate in the senate, which has
been expected to break out at any
moment in spite of the President's re-
quest that it be withheld until after
his meeting with the committeemen,
probably will begin tomorrow.
Caruso to lake
Debut Jarch 3
Enried Caruso, the distinguished
Italian tenor of the Metropolitan
Opera company, will make his Ann
Arbor debut Monday evening, March
3, when he will be heard in a miscel-
laneous program of arias and pa-
triotic songs.
During the, many years that Mr.
Caruso has been the leading star of
the Metropolitan Qpera company, he
has seldom appeared in concert. In
fact, during the last 10 years he has
been heard in concert in the West and
Middle West not more than eight or
10 times.
Postponed Concert
Last fall when arrangements were
perfected for a brief tour, Ann Arbor
was fortunate in being able to secure
one of his -four appearances. Owing
to the state-wide ban on public gath-
erings because of the influenza epi-
demic, it was necessary to give up the
concert at tht time..
The significance of his coming here
will be appreciated when it is real-
ized that it is. the first time in the
S 'history of his long career that he has
left New York during the opera sea-
son.
Same Program

He will give the same program as
announced last fall and will be as-
sisted by the same artists: Nina Mor-
gana, the remnarkable soprano; Elias
Breeskin, the young Russian violin-
ist, will also be heard in the same
program, while piano accompaniments
will be played by Salvatore Fuccito
,and Isaac VanGrove.
Three Lits Asked to Withdraw
Three students will be asked to
withdraw from the College of Litera-
ture, Science, and the Arts by action
of the committee on delinquences last
night.

Unavoidable changes in elec-
tions can be miade Thursday

WMNS19UPETITIONS FOR TAX

Within the next few weeks the Un-
iversity will submit to the governmen
an account for all the expenses whic
it incurred during the stay of the S
A. T. C. This will include such ex-
pense as was incurred in the con-
struction of temporary buildings, re-
pairs on fraternity houses and many
other items.
Accounts must first be sent to the
military headquarters in Ann Arbor
where they will be checked and ap-
proved. From here they will be sent
to the district quartermaster for set-
I tlement. Major Ralph H. Durkee ex-
pects to be here to sign for the local
office. The accounts will probably be
ready for inspection in 10 days.
Lieut. E. J. Stotter, local quarter-
master, is engaged in shipping some
of the equipment that was used here.
This includes signal corps apparatus
and also government-owned motors
which were used in the motor repair
school.

MARGARET JEWELL, '20, PAINTS
PLACARDS NOW IN
WINDOWS
Vividly colored posters announcing
the spotlight vaudeville, to be given
Friday, Feb. 8, in Hill auditorium,
for the benet of the American Univer-
sity union in Paris, have appeared in
the windows of the campus shops. The
placards were designed by Margaret
Jewell, '20, who has alsohand-paint-
ed a number of them with water-col-
ors.
Unusual Poster
The poster represents a romatic-
visaged youth singing to the tune of
and playing a stringed instrument the
like of which cannot be found even in
Stearns collection. It is said to be re-
lated ot the banjuke, violin, mandolin,
and guitar. The exact identity of the
instrument in question, however, Is
not a- matter of importance on the art-
ist is allowed a certain amount .of po-
etic license.
The poster is attractive regardless
of liberties taken by the artist, and it
is expected to be quite an effective
means of creating a demand for tick-
ets when they are put on sale.
Ten Acts Scheduled
The poster promises "ten big acts,"
and present indications point to the
promise being kept. Music, magic,
dancing, and specialties will be in-
cluded on the varied program which.
will be offered at the vaudeville.
The program itself, together with
the fact that the show isto be pro-
duced for the benefit of the American
University union, is expected to bring
a capacity audience to Hill auditor-
ium.

INITIAL CHORUS TRYOUTS TO
BE HELD AT 7:80 TONIGHT
Initial chorus tryouts for the
Union opera will be held at 7:30
o'clock this evening in the old Union
- building. The aspirants will be test-
ed as to both dancing and singing
ability.
The chorus of the 1919 opera will
consist of 40 members, 16 boys and
24 girls, 12 from the latter going to
make up the pony ballet.
Mr. E. Mortimer Schuter, director
of the opera, said yesterday in re-
gard to the importance of the chorus:
"Nearly all the great actors and act-
resses of musical comedy have risen
from the chorus. It is the best
school for a musical comedy aspirant.
The majority of managers always
keep their eyes on their respective
choruses with an idea of picking
some member for future use as a ju-
venile, ingenue, or character actor.
Chorus Is Important
"In the case of the chorus with the
present opera, they play a most im-
portant part in the making of it, as
they are required to do bits of acting
which are incidental to the action of
the play. They are not merely
brought on the stage and thrown in
as a song and dance number to fill
in a gap in place of dialogue.
Authors Careful
"It is a tendency of some of the
so-called authors of books of musical
comedies, when their master brains
run out of material for dialogue, to
say, 'Oh, well, I'll just run in a musi-
cAl number and bring the audience
out of their seats.' I am glad .to say
that this is not true of Mr. Haines'
book, and I repeat that the chorus is
most essential in the making of what
I consider an excellent play . with
music.
"The opera for this year has a new
story, a new plot, with excellent music
and catchy lyrics."
21 NURSES BENEFIT
BY SCHOLARSHIPS
Of the 23 nurses who have enroll-
ed in the public health nursing course
to be given this semester in the Uni-
versity, all but two were sent on
scholarships given by hospitals, or-
ganizations, individuals, and Red
Cross chapters in the state.
One of the nurses, Miss Edna Shane
of Jackson, has recently returned1
from overseas where she was en-l
gaed in public health work among the
civilian' poulation. Another of the1
nurses has just been released from1
duty in a general military hospital in
New York.1
More nurses are expectel to enrollt
at the registrar's office ,inthe near1
future.I
The coutse is being given under ther
direction of Prof. Dora M. Barnes.
The first phase of the work, an emer-
gency course, will extend over a pe-
riod of four months and will be di-
vided between theoretical problems
and field work in neighboring cities
and towns. The field work will in-r
clude the work of a general visitingI
nurse and also specialized forms of
public health nursing.
Those eligible for the course are
graduate registered nurses and senior
pupil nurses of approved schools. The
course is offered to fill the demanda
for specially trained public health
nurses and, judging from the presentn
enrollment, it will be a permanent
one in the University.
Radical Aliens Face Deportation

Washington, Feb. 18. - Any alien
found advocating destruction of prop-
erty or overthrowing of the govern-
ment will be deported-under the pro-e
vision of the immigration act of Feb.c
5, 1917. This announcement was
made today by Secretary of Labort
Wilson in a letter rebuking a Brook-C
lyn lodge for protesting against theJ
deportation of 68 alien radicals.
The secretary denied that they wereF
being deported without due process ofb
Jaw and said that they had been givenC

COMPULSORY MEMBERSHIP
WITH $1.00 FEE ASKED FOR
That membership in the Women's
league be compulsory and that $1.00
to cover membership be added to the
entrance fee of each woman, will be
the basis of the petition which the
board of directors of the Women's
league will present at the meeting of
the Board of Regents Feb. 28.
Want Blanket Tax
The board plans to make member-
ship in the league compulsory, just
as all men students are members of
the Michigan Union by virtue of the
blanket tax of $3.00. Practically all
University women and many nurses
now belong to the league, and it is
thought that much time and effort can
be saved by adopting the expedient
of a blanket tax.
Desire Dormitories
If the petition is granted, the money
which is received at the beginning of
next year may be used to secure more
women's dormitories.
The petition was approved by the
house of representatives of the board
at its last meeting.
Latest .Gargoyle
Reveals Serets
At last all the mystery is stripped
from the campus secret societies, and
all their dread ceremonies are laid
before the world.
Brush and pen have been combined
to portray the inner workings of fra-
ternities and sororities to the unspoil-
ed frosh. "The Freshmen Bible" even
tells him or her how to'act and what
to expect when entertained at the
domiciles of certain organizations.
One can also learn how the sorori-
ty girls get all the A's. It can't be
called vamping the professors, but-
How the bird who sports seven pins
gets away with it, and how the female
of the species grabs 14, i also reveal-
ed. It's a gift!
Seriously speaking, however, the
February issue is filled with witty
verse and pointed drawings. The cov-
er is a study in green and symbolizes
the whole.
ANNE N. )fULHERON, '06, GOES
TO FRANCE TO BE LIBRARIAN
Anne M. Mulheron, '06, sailed Feb.
15 for France on the steamship La
France, where she will be engaged in
library work.
Miss Mulheron is one of the nine"
librarians in the United States se-
lected by the American Library as-
sociation to go overseas with the
American Expeditionary Forces to es-
tablish regional libraries. These 11-
braries will serve the men engaged in1
reconstruction work with reading
matter in the same manner that the
camp libraries have in this country.
ANNOUNCEMENTS OF SUMMER
SCHOOL COURSES OUT SOON
University officials are taking ample
measures to provide courses for Sum-f
mer Session students so that they,
may take the same studies that they
are now pursuing. Dean E. H.'
Krauss, in charge of the SummerE
Session, says that men who have been
in the service will be assisted as much
as possible.
An abridged summer school an-
nouncement will be off the press by
March 5, and by the end of March the
complete list of all classes and sched-
ules will be ready.
TO REQUEST WAR TROPHIES

AS MARKS FOR NEW HIGHWAY;
Requests will be sent to the gov-
ernment to provide captured German
cannons and other war trophies to be
installed along the line of the Vic-
tory highway. The route starts at
Chicago, through Michigan City to St.
Joseph, Paw Paw, Kalamazoo, Battle
Creek, Charlotte, Lansing, Owosso,
Flint, Emmett and Port Huron. A
branch runs from Owosso, touching
Chesning St. Charles, Saginaw, and

PROFESSOR RISKS
LIFE IN RESEARCH
Capt. Paul H. DeKruif, who has
been overseas with the medical corps,
has returned to the University, where
he will resume his activities as as-
sistant professor of bacteriology.
Although Captain De Kruif is si-
lent as to his work In France, fellow
officers have asserted that on several
occasions he was nearly killed while
experimenting in shell craters in No
Man's Land to reduce the loss of life
caused by gas gangrene. Along this
line he is said to have made valuable
discoveries.
Captain De Kruif intends to con-
tinue his research work in the Uni-
versity. In Nw York, where he em-
barked, he stated that he was bringing
with him trillions of microbes-a fact
which the custom officials were will-
ing to believe without searching the
knapsacks containing the germs.
'LETTERS FROM AVITOS
WNTEBYGOENMENT
STORIES SHOULD BE SENT TO
PRESIDENT HUTCHIN'S
OFFICE
With the view of compiling the ad-
ventures as well as the historical in-
formation of the American fliers
overseas, the director of military
aeronautics of the war department, in
a letter to President Harry B. Hutch-
ins, asks the co-operation of the Uni-
versity in assembling personal stor-
ies of the aviators who have come
from this University.
Information Valuable
"The information thus assembled,"
says the letter, "is important to the
air service of the country and may
be of yet more intimate concern to
the locality and to the instittulon with
which you are associated. It seems not
unlikely that the better part of each
story is contained in letters to friends
and relatives.
"Such informal records may supply
information of historical value to be'
had from no other source, information
which should find a place in the writ-
ten history of the country."
All Letters Desired
The director of military aeronau-
tics therefore makes the request that
his office be furnished with copies of
such letters, or excerpts from them,
and likewise with copies of any stu-
dent or alumni publications that have
contained articles pertinent to this
subject.
President Hutchins desires that all
letters, or copies of such, be either
brought or sent to his office, where
they will be filed and later forwarded
to the director of military aeronau-
tics.

(By Associated Press)
Lansing, Feb. 18.-For the first
time in the history of Michigan poli-
tics, a woman was chosen as a nom-
inee for a state elective office.
Miss Dora H. Stockman of Lansing
was nominated today by the Republi-
can state convention here, as one of
the parties to the candidates for mem-
bership to the board of agriculture at
the election of April 7. The conven-
tion gave women one-third of the rep-
resentation in the state central com-
mittee.
The platform adopted by the party
declared for stricter immigration laws,
deportation of interned aliens with the
exclusion of those returning to Eu-
rope to join enemy countries.
The nominations of the party are as
follows: For the board of agricul-
ture, L. Whitney Watkins of Jack-
son, Miss Dora Stockman of Lansing;
regents of the University of Michi-
gan,Benjamin F. Hanchett, Grand
Rapids, Dr. Lucius L. Hubbard of
Houghton; justices of the supreme
court, Russel Ostrander, Lansing,

education, Frank Cody, Detroit; su-
perintendent of public instruction,

clamation except for the board of ag-
riculture. A. J. Dohtrey of Claire
withdrew his candidacy for the office
in favor of Miss Stockman. t. Whit-
ney Watkins defeated Robert Graham,
who sought renomination without
roll call. Every county in the state
was represented by at least one wom-
an delegate and they all took an ac-
tive part in the busines of the con-
vention.
Governor Sleeper addressed the
convention, urgipg support of $15,-
000,000 good roads bond resolution.
Speaking of the prohibition law, he
said that a permanent state constabu-
lary to run down whiskey runners
should be established.
Oratory Helps End
War--Sh a rfma n
"Oratory has been an important
factor in bringing the great world
war to a close," declared Prof. 1.
Leo Sharfman of the economics de-
partment in his address, "Temper-
ance," at the annual banquet of the
Adelphi House of Representatives held
last night at the Allenel hotel. "The
success of the many Liberty Loan and
War Savings Stamp campaigns and
those stimulating recruiting has been
due largely to the eloquence of the
men picked for their marked ora-
torical ability, who have conducted
them."

Mr. Ray K. Immel of the oratorical
department spoke on the future of de-
bating at Michigan. The past year
has been marked by its. lack of de-
bates and Mr. Immel assured the
Adelphi that with the new semester
oratory would be restored to its pre-
war basis.
