Men who received their commissions
at Fort Sheridan will meet at 7
o'clock Tuesday, May 6, in the room
across from the billiard room in the
new Michigan Union building.
Plans for a smoker and election of.

Arrangements Made for B. V. D. Dance
Arrangements for the B. V. D. dance
to be given Friday, May 9, in the
Union are being made by the commit-
tees of the three societies. It has not
yet been definitely decided whether or
not the dance will be informal or not.
Feature entertainments are being
devised by the committees. An Ann
Arbor orchestra has been hired for the
occasion and will probm'hly play from
9 to 1 o'clock.
Examinations, made at least three
times a month, of the Ann Arbor milk
supply show it to be the best of any
city in southern Michigan.
Of the 2,500 gallons of milk used
daily in this city about 90 per cent go
through the Ann Arbor dairy, the re-
maining portion being distributed
mostly by the McCall Dairy company
and a small amount by private deal-
Milk is divided into three classes,
certified, inspected, and market milk.
Certified milk first came into existence
in 1892 when Dr. Coit of Newark, New
Jersey, wanted pure milk which had
not been pasteurized for his baby. To
obtain this he made certain agree-
ments with a afrmer who did what
Doctor Coit wanted.
Those requirements were increased
until they now include that all cows
must be tested for tuberculosis, that
the cows shall not be allowed to graze
in the fields, not even in summer for
fear they might pick up some, disease.
Theytalso require that all stables be
well ventilated and lighted, having a
specified amount of window space for

Plans are on foot for making the
meeting the largest and most import-

a special program is being arranged.
By virtue of the lack of spirit in
the University caused by the distract-

council has come to the conclusion
that a mass meeting of this kind is
the only thing that will again waken
the spirit of the University.

The original date has been changed

meeting will be held 'Tuesday night

been obtained for the occasion.

"NOS INTIMESP'" PLAYED
WITH GENUINE SUCCESS
UNIQUENESS OF PLOT BROUGHT
OJT BY CLEVERNESS OF
(J. I. Dakin)
"Our most intimate acquaintances
are not always our best friends." This
final speech struck the keynote of Vic-
torien Sardon's "Nos Intimes!" which
was presented Thursday evening in
Sarah Caswell Angell hall under the
auspices of the Cercle Francais.
It is the story of the trials and trib-
ulations of Monsieur Caussade, a
wealthy and open-hearted Parisian of
the middle class who gets into com-
plications because of the fact that he
is not careful enough in his choice of
friends. His wife, Cecile, is made
love to by one of his intimates who is
recovering from an illness at Caus-
sade's country home and a group of
meddlesome guests do their best to
make matters as bad as possible.
Caussade finally discovers that the
doctor, Tholosan, whom he disliked,
is a real friend. He gets rid of his
now unwelcome guests and the play
ends happily as a comedy should.
The acting was uniformly good.
Berenice Warsau, '22, who played the
part of Cecile, is worthy of especial
mention not only for her acting but
for her speech and accent. Lawrence
H. Seltzer, '20, A. J. Himmelhoch, '20,
A. W. Wilson, '21E, I. Victor Brock,
'19, Joseph Fredman, David A. Watts,
'21, and Norbert Lambert, '22, all were
In roles that required much stage pres-
ence and exceptional acting and they

Helen H. M. Roelofs, grad, as the
ingenue Benjamine, proved a delicate
foil for her dark-haired stepmother,
Cecile. Nora Wilson, '21, as Jenny, the
maid, and Marion Hayes, '19, as Ma-
dame Vigneux, played their parts well.
Between the acts, Marjorie West, '21,
sang three solos in French.
ORDERS BEING TAKEN BY CITY
FORESTER FOR SHRUBBERY
Orders will' be received by the city
forester's office during the next two
weeks for shrubs, hedges, and trees.

way. All the plants will be put in
as soon as they arrive by the corps
of men under Ray M. Bassett, forester
for the city of Ann Arbor.h
About 2,000 trees and shrubs were
sprayed during the last two weeks.
Next month during the blossoming
season the same trees and as many
more as possible will be sprayed.

CHICAGO DEAN SAYS HE WAS
MISQUOTED ON ATHLETId MAT.
DECISION TO BE GIVEN
OUT TO PUBLIC SOON
(T. F. X.)
No action was taken upon the mat-
ter of the presidency of the Univer-
sity at the first May meeting of the
Board of Regents Thursday. Coming
from Galesburg, Ill., where he had
attended and addressed a meeting of
college heads the day before, Dean
James Rowland Angell, of the Uni-
versity of Chicago, arrived in Ann Ar-
bor in the morning, and after appear-
ing before the session of the board,
left for Chicago early in the after-
noon. It was the first campus meet-
ing of the Regents that Dean Angell
has attended since the presidency was
offered him two months ago.
Announcement to Come Soon
It was stated after the adjournment
of the session that the definite an-
nouncement regarding the result of
the past month's consideration and
negotiation of the question, would be
given out by President Harry B.
Hutchins within a short time.
When seen after the discussion with
the members of the board, Dean An-
gell appeared in his usual good humor,,
and being asked concerning a reput-
ed outline of his address at Galesburg
on collegiate athletics, as published by
one of yesterday's Chicago papers,
said that he had been persistently mis-
quoted throughout the entire artcle.
Approves of Sport
In regard to the intercollegiate
system of sports, Dean Angell replied
no one but a crazy man would favor
the abolition of intercollegiate athlet-
ics. He said it with a sparkle in his
eye, for it will be remembered that
during his four years in college at
Michigan, he held the University sin-
gles tennis championship, and during
the last two years was a memb'er of an
unbeatable Varsity tennis doubles
team. No further statement was made
concerning the situation.
After the meeting the members of
the board, with President Harry B.
Hutchins and Secretary Shirley Smith,
made a visit to the University hospi-
tals, and considered suggested loca-
tions for the site of the new hospi-
tal, the funds for which were appro-
priated by the present legislature. The
Regents adjourned until May 23.
FROSH PLAN JAZZ
MUSIC AT FROLIC
"Jazz, and lots of it!" will be the
slogan adopted by the Ponchartrain
orchestra at the 1919 Frosh Frolic on
May 16 in Barbour gymnasium.
All the variations of the trombone,
saxophone, violin, traps, and piano
will make the event a gala occasion.
Barbour gymnasium will be the scene
of the festivities, due to the fact that
the guest accommodations are larger
and additional features can be pro-
vided. Two hundred tickets will go
on sale Friday afternoon in U-hall
from 1:30 to 3 o'clock.
The ball room will be decorated in
green and white, with tints blending
with the general color scheme. Addi-
tional features are now being arrang-
ed by the social committee, who will
make public their decision later in
