IN FAVOR OF MEASURE
President of Woman's Association
Praises Splendid Response
(By Associated Press)
Washington, May 21.-The woman
suffrage constitutional amendment
resolution was. passed today by the
house after less than three hours' de-
The vote was 304 to 88, or 42 more
than the necessary two-thirds majori-
ty. The resolution now goes to the
Senate, where supporters plan to urge
speedy action. Final enactment of the
measure within two weeks was pre-
dicted by some, suffrage leaders.
Mrs. Catt Makes Statement
Immediately after the vote was an-
nounced Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt,
president of the National American
Woman's Suffrage association, issued
"Never was there a more splendid
response for the movement for justice
to women than the quick and gallant
action of the House of Representa-
tives. Ratification will follow in the
various state legislatures I am con-
vinced, with the same generosity, and
thus release American women now
struggling to secure political free-
Champ Clark Favors Resolution
Former Speaker Champ Clark spoke
in favor of the resolution. When he
arose he was accorded an ovation, the
members rising in their seats and
'h"rlag for several minutes. He urg-
ed passage of the measure because it
had been recommended by the Presi-
Representative Mann, in closing de-
bate on behalf of supporters of the
solution said he had hoped discussion
would precede without reference to the

C UBS OFTEN QUIXOTIC,
EIRS YOUNG JOURNALISTS HINT
OF WORK BEFORE
"The youngster too often comes in-
to the newspaper office with the spirit
of a Don Quixote," said Malcolm W.
Bingay, managing editor of the Detroit
News, in an address held upder the au-
spices of Pi Delta Epsilon and Sigma
Delta Chi, national journalistic frater-
nities, Wednesday afternoon in Tap-
Speaks to Journalists
Mr. Bingay addressed. his remarks
particularly to those students in the
University who expect to enter the
field of practical journalism. As he
prophesied at the beginning of his
speech his remarks were disillusion-
ing. He sought in his discussion of
"Cubs I Have Met" to tear away the
veil of glamor that the newspaper of-
fice holds for the average prospective
cub reporter and show him 'exactly
what foundation he must build on if
pe is to succeed in the newspaper
gawe of today.,
All Not Gifted
'In the first place," Mr. Bingay de-
clared, "Not everyone has the 'spark,'
the newspaper sense, that makes a
good newspaper man. There is a
piear line of demarkation between the
pork of the journalist and the worl of
the fiptiog pr agazine writer. Some

Preceded by the Varsity band play-
ing Michigan airs, the seniors, in cap
and gown, will lead the classes in the
march to Sleepy Hollow, scene of the
Cap night program. All classes, and
the band, are to assemble on the cam-
pus promptly at 7:30, at places which
will be announced Friday.
The line of march will be down
North University to State street, from
State street to Ann street and up Ann
street to the observatory. At the en-
trance to the Hollow will be the boxes
into which all toques and "pots" are
to be thrown. The committee in
charge asks that freshmen do not cut
the buttons. from their toques, as cut-
ting the cloth makes them less useful
to the Red Cross.
Gault Master of Ceremonies
All classes will seat themselves in
order before the speakers' stand,
freshmen in front. After a selection
by the band Ralph Gault, '21L, mas-
ter of ceremonies, will take charge
and will introduce the speakers, who
represent the students, the faculty
and the alumni. Michigan songs, sung
by all, will be rendered between
"Where O' Where" will be sung, and
as the corpse of 1922 is placed on the
pyre to be burned the band will play
the funeral dirge. The freshmen will
hold a snake-dance about the fire, and
the singing of the "Yellqw and. Blue"
will close the program.
Free Show at Auditorium
Contrary to the usual custom of go-
ing uptown for free shows at the
movies the classes-will then march to;
Hill auditorium, where the theaters
are to give an open performance.
Plans for the evening are practically
completed and all will be in readiness
when the time arrives.
All classes are again urged to bring
their toques and turn them over tor
the Red Cross on this night. Fresh-
men who have both a "pot" and a
toque should throw both in the boxes1
provided for them.
MIIIES: ELECT OFFICER AT
MEETING WEDNESDAY EVE.
Mimes elected the following officers
at a meeting held Wednseday eve-l
ning in the Michigan Union: Presi-
dent, William P. Favorite, '20; vice-1
president, David Nash, '20; secretary4
and treasurer, William Hinshaw, '20.
The annual Spring dance for init-E
iates will be held from 2 to 5 o'clock
Friday afternoon in the Union.
Green stockings at a wedding!
Highly ludicrous, but not at all im-
probable, as demonstrated in A. E.
W. Mason's three-act play, "Green
Stockings," to be presented at 8:15
o'clock tonight at the Whitney thea-
ter by the Comedy club.
But beyond the point of the ludi-
crous, such a matter is certainly not
to the taste of Celia, eldest sister in
the respectable Faraday family, and
one of most doubtful age for the mar-
riage nuptials in that institution.
Fictitious Lover Introduced
How she frees herself from her dif-
ficulty, and throws off the reputation
as a wall-flower in society is reveal-
ed in the play. Introduction of fleti-
tious lovers, though not a new idea
with dramatists, is here made doubly
delightful by the appearance of the
unknown person in the flesh, and
further complications enter the plot.
Woven through all is the minor love
strain of the suit for the hand of Phy-
llis Faraday by Bobby Tarver, empty
headed candidate for Parliament. To
the hands of Tarver, is entrusted the
only strictly comic role in the play.
Playing the role of Colonel Smith,
the announced, but unknown lover, is
Richard A. Forsyth, '20. To Celia, in
the person of Helen . Cady, '19, he ad-
dresses his not altogether unwelcome
attentions, for that young lady longs
for the companionship of others than
the host of fossils who dog her foot-
Musie By Diamond
In the part of Phyllis will be seen
Carrie C. Smith, '21, whose devotions
to "darling" Bobby have led her even
to the extent of the commitment of
election speeches. Those who wit-
nessed Gilbert R. Byrne's work in
the comedy role of "Miss Hobbs" need
no further introduction to his ability
to impersonate the character assign-
ed to him. Phil Diamond's orchestra
of six pieces will furnish music for
Tickets for the play may be reserv-
ed at Wahr's or Sheehan's until 5:30
o'clock today, after which they will
be transferred to the box office at the
Whitnew theater. They sell at 50 and
