Maroon rooters did their best to back

The band, plaling "The Victors,"

hero of the late war, will be accom-

comes to Ann Arbor Wednesday. On
his return from France Sergeant
York was given a grand reception by
his home .people. On his wedding day
York appeared in the uniform of a
Colonel of the Tennessee State troops,
he having been given that title by his
home state.'
Sergeant York has been besieged
by stage and film offers but is devot-
ing his efforts to securing funds for a
little mountain school. He comes from
the land formerly noted for its fueds
and "moonshiners." The sergeant is
a typical mountaineer and is quite an,
interesting character. In his lecture
he will tef. of the conditions exist-
ing in his 'home-land and will make a'
strong appeal for his people. Since
he entered the army York has come
to realize the value of: an education
and is very anxious for more and
better schools to be established in his
region. It is toward this end that he
is now working and the proceeds Jf

E. Mortimer Shuter, director of the
"Red Feather" opera, characterizes
the. production as "an opera comique
worth while." Mr. Shuter said, "The
book of 'Red Feather' was written by
Charles Klein, who has such success-
es as 'The Lion and the Mouse,' "The
Man of the Hour' and 'The Music
Master' to his credit.
Has Excellent Comedy
'The music li by Reginald 'De
Koven, which is guarantee enough of
its worth. It is very seldom that
two such heads are brought together
in the making of an opera comique
and there can be only one result from
such ,a combination - success. The
musidal combinations are splendid
and very catchy, so much so that many
of the audience will be humming the
strains of 'The Little Milliner,' 'The
Conspirators,' 'o Call Thee Mine,'
'Red Feather,' 'The Merry Cavalier'
and not forgetting the splendid quar-
tette number, 'A Lesson in Verse.' The
book and lyricsare exceptionally well
blanced with excellent character com-
edy and drama of the highest order."
.New scenery is being painted by
Carl Brummel, whose work on the
"Come On Dad" scenery will be re-
membered. Costumes are being made
by the costume house of Van Horn
& Son, who also costumed last year's
Union opera. The music is under the
direction of Prof. Earl' V. Moore.
Rehearsals are being conducted
daily,, and Mr. Shuter feels sure of as
good- a production the opening night
as any night of the engagement. Two
rehearsals with scenery and two with
scenery and costumes will be held at
the Whitney theater prior to the first
performance. t
Albert Jacobs, '20, president of the
junior literary class has called a

What is the difference between the
Ann Arbor of a year ago and AnnI
Arbor today? The only similarity we
can see is the mud. That sticky sub-l
,stance - is just as much in evidence
now as it was in November, 1918, but,
,at the present time the greater part of
the University does not have to prom-1
enade pretty regularly down the mid-'
dle of the town's most slushy street.1
Mess in Union Recalled
Tl e changes in the last 12 months,
are legion. For one thing, yoxf don't1
hear so' much swearing around the1
Union. Ask the ex-S. A. T. C.'er why;
few members of that unfortunate or-
ganization but will burst into fervid,
elegy on the steam-laden atmospherei
of those mess-halls where chow was1
wont to be dispensed. How strong a
part these meals had in mouldingthe
morale of the student body first from
,lighthearted enthusiasm to conscien-
cious objection and then back to
kaiser-hating will never be known. 1
No longer do fresh-faced boys, di-
rect from high school, order around;
whole companies of men, simply by
virtue of a little gold bar on eagh

shoulder. Some of them, it is said, are1
now freshmen in the University. An-
other ithing we notice is that such
points of strategic and military im-;
portance as the old Union, the diagonal
walk, the sidewalk opposite Maxtha
Cook, and the engineering arch are no
longer guarded by heavily armed sen-
tinels who called upon passersby in
loud tones to halt, but who subsided
into quiet if the person they accosted
turned out to be an embryo sailor. And
the two "gobs" who were arrested last
fall for throwing nine soldiers out of
the Labor temple were seen the other
day looking positively cherubic.
Attitude Toward Lessons Changed
What is probably most significant of
all, is the change in the majority's at-
titude toward its studies. It was an
accepted principle last year that no
one should use his brain and the in-i
dividual who attended three classes
out of four was almost looked on as
,mentally deficient. Today, most of the
University is trying hard to study, and
except for . certain festive occasions
such as the playing of a Chicago game,.
