is but one of the large number of
gatherings that it is hoped will be
held at commencement time.
One '49 Survivor
Hon. Thomas Witherell Palmer, '49,
is now the oldest living Michigan
alumnus and the sole survivor of his
class. Mr. Palmer was United States
senator from Michigan from 1883 to
1889, U. S. minister to Spain, and
president of the World's Columbian

Detroit. With only one member left in

Although a large number o men
did not turn out for the Glee club try-

that enough first tenors will be avail-1
able to form a well-rounded club.
A large number of the. original se-
lection by Theodore Harrison, the di-
rector, were ineligible, but he will en-
deavor to form a club on a smaller
scale than originally intended. This
will probably mean that the person-
nel will comprise only 40 men instead
of 60.
While Mr. Harrison is going over
his eligibility list to see if this is pos-
sible, he will give any first tenors a
kearing by special appointment if they
call him at 1889.

Sebond Performance Shows Consist
ent Improvement Over
(By Milton Marx)
"Come On, Dad is a real come-
back" opera. This, was proved at the
second performance of the show
Thursday night. The audience thought
so; the actors thought so. Even the
reviewer thought so.
If the program had said that Flo
Ziegfield or Lee Shubert had furnish-
ed the scenery, I would have been in-
clined to believe it. The scenery of
the present opera is the best by far
of any Michigan show I have seen,
and that is not a few. The last act is
a futurist setting, worthy of an Ur-
Gornetzky Writes First Act
All the music in the first act with
the exception of one number is writ-
ten by Gornetszky. Among his two
best are the opening chorus, "Sere-
nata Espanola," and "Marry Me Mary."
(The fact that I happened to write
the lyrics for these 'has nothing to
do with this opinion, oh, no!)
"Diplomacy" is a good number that
is not so good in its presentation. The
chorus is awkward here, and while
better than at the opening perform-
ance, needs more practice. While
some sort of awkwardness is to be
expected when men take the part of
girls, still it is also expected that they
know their parts, and do not have to
look at one another to see what to
do. Which happened more than once
last night. Gorney's other song in
this act is "Romance a la Mode," a
beautiful number, beautifully sung by
Pauls Wilson and Moore, and beauti-
fully presented by the chorus.
The one song in the act not writ-
ten by Gorney is the "Luckless Spins-
ters" which is composed by Cort Bell,
general manager of the opera. As a
composer, Cort is a fine general man-
ager. The song smacks of an ancient.
hymn. But we forgive you, Cort. You
put out a mighty fine show, in spite
of your ambitions to rival Irving Ber-
Best Voices in Second Act
The second act shows the best
voices in the show, in the song "My
Lover," sung by the quartette Messrs.
Wilson, Waltzer, Nash and Kempf.
"Betting," sung by Mirrieless, almost
stopped the show again. These two
songs were composed by Kann and
In the last act is the song we all
waited for again, "Come On, Dad."
Mirrielees is destined to encore this a
dozen times each performance, or I
lose my guess. But the chorus is still
awkward here, and Mr. Shuter has
some more work to do to make it go
off smoothly.
Wilson and Moore Score Again
As to the voices, Paul Wilson and
Paul Moore are to be commended as
having the best in the principal songs.
Carlos Zanelli is impressive in the
prologue, and Dave Nash shows well
in the one or two chances he gets to
show. But when it comes to real
"Jazz" music, I hand it to Mirrielees.
There are some weaknesses, to be
sure. I wish Paul Moore would re-

member he is Peter, and not Paul
Moore, and stop bowing to his friends
in the audience. We are all glad to
see you, Paul, but act like an actor
anyway. This criticism can also be
applied to a chorus "girl" or so, who
are putting in some extra business.
These are minor defects, and will be
remedied as the show progresses. The
second performance showed a great
improvement over the first in this re-
spect, so by the time the opera "takes
the road" it ought to be letter perfect.
Scenery Is Biggest Feature
There isn't much to find fault with,
to be frank, with "Come On,.Dad." The
plot is present all the way through,
the music is fine and very well play-
ed, and the parts as well taken as
they ever have been. If "Come On,
mDad" is not one of the biggest hits
the Union ever put out, then I don't
know anything about it. And once
again let me say that it is the best
scenery that any Union opera ever
ha 4.

Average Of 1400 Students Attend
Church; 450 More Than In 1908

About 25 per cent 'of the students
in the University attend Sunday serv-
ices at Ann Arbor churches, and
about 29 per cent of the total number
of churchgoers are students, accord-
ing to a rough estimate recently made.
Considerably over 1,400 students on
an average now attend church serv-
ices. By comparison with statistics in
a Daily published in 1908, this shows
an increase of about 450 since that
year, but the infrease is scarcely in
proportion to that in the student

The percentage of student attend-
ance, however, exceeds that of the
townspeople. According to this esti-
mate, the average number of students
at church services is as follows:
Catholic, 300, about 12 per cent of
total attendance; Episcopal, 50, 25
per cent of total; Congregational,
about 375, 50 per cent of whole attend-
ance; Baptist, 100, 50 per cent of to-
tal; Church of Christ, 18, about 12
per cent of total; St. Paul's Lutheran,
about 12, 10 per cent of whole; Pres-
byterian, 400. Statistics from other
churches are at present unavailable.

Have you ever stopped to consider
the geological history of your city?
Have you ever wondered why there
were so few level places in this vi-'
cinity that would offer a suitable land-
ing place for airplanes should the cit-
izens of this town' desire, at some
date in the near future, to park their
airplanes near home?
It may prove interesting to read
what Prof. William H. Hobbs, head of
the geology department, has to say
on. the subject.
Rocks Came from Canada
"Some 20,000 or more years ago -
only yesterday reckoned in geological
time - a great glacier advanced in-
to this district from the direction of
Lake Erie, spreading like a great man-
tle with its margin just west of the
city of Ann Arbor, and extending far
to the northeastward and southwest-
ward. Here the ice upon its front
melted and deposited a burden of clay
and boulders. This deposit produced
the great hommocky ridge of "boulder
clay," which is known as a moraine,
a ridge which now remains trending
west of the city and passing through
Bridgewater to the southwest, and
Northfield to the northeast. The rocks
which compose the boulders of this
moraine were gathered up by the
glacier all the way from Canada, com-
ing by a circuitotis route, and some
that are more interesting than the
others have been set up as class me-

Irma Casler, 19-year-old school
teacher of Macon, who was shot by
Robert Warner of Jackson Thursday
morning, died at 9:10 o'clock Thurs-

Warner had confessed fully to the

Thursday afternoon. No motive for
the crime is given, Warner remaining
obdurate on that point.

President Makes Denial
(By Associated Press)
Paris, March 27.-President Wilson
denied today the reports that the
league of nations debate was delaying
the final conclusion of peace. Follow-
ing is his statement:
"In view of the very surprising im-
pression which seems to exist that it
is the discussion of the commission
on the league of nations that is delay-
ing the final formulation of peace, I
am very glad to take this opportunity
of supporting the conclusions of this

Radically differing ideas of moral-
ity between the ancient Romans and
Americans, and a characteristic plac-
ing of the "punch" in epilogue and
prologue rather than in the body of
the pl6y presented two big difficulties
in adapting Plautus' "Casina" to "The
Much Woo'd Maiden." the Classical
club play to be given at 8:15 o'clock
Thursday night, April 3, in Univer-
sity hall.
Points of Doubt
Confronted by these problems, it
was necessary for George D. Wilner,
grad., who has written the adaptation
to be used, to purge the work of
Plautus on points of doubt, while
maintaining the best elements of the
original comedy.
He has not only succeeded in doing
this, but by introducing two charact-
ers of whom the author merely makes
mention, he has made possible the
transfer of the "punch" of the play to
that portion which the club is em-
ploying in its presentation.
Sale Opens Tomorrow
Members of the club will open the
sale of tickets on the campus tomor-
row, and reservations may b@ made
