Whyte has been with us for a weel

to be the best speaker that has ever

been a feast of Engish politics. I be-

Mr. Whyte was in Paris during the
last part of the Peace conference and

ent Preservan Believed to Be
Due to Use of Salt in

Prof. A. S. Warthin, director of the'
University ; pathological laboratory,
was called .to Lawton, Mlch., Tuesday
at the request of Van Buren county
officials, to make a special investi-
gation of the body of Maude Faith
Tabor, '.00, which was discovered Sun-
day afternoon bured. in a wooden
trunk in the cellar of the Tabor ho ne
in .that city. It is believed by Van
Buren county physicians that the
body had been in the trunk for three
years; and, as no marks of violence'
were found; tloe general suspicion is
that death resulted from poisoning.
Body Well Preserved
The body was found' to be so re-
markably well preserved that it is
thought salt was used in its disposi-
tion. It is said that all traces of any,
poisoning but arsenic would have dis-
appeared in three years, but police and
county officials are making every ef-
fortto clear up the mystery, and lave
called upon Dr. Warthin in order to,
have expert medical testimony. Mrs.
F. T. Critchlow, elder sister of the
dead woman, and Joseph Virgo, of
South Bend, Ind., said to have been
Miss Tabor's sweetheart, are, being;
hdld in; Lawton pending investigation.
Mrs. Critchlow, who discovered the,
:ody believed to be that of her. sis-
er, has refused to testify and has thus;
nade as positive identification impos-

20 Committees to Work on Competitiv
Basis, According to Present
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursda3
pf next week with a ,possible grant
clean up day on Friday are the dates
set for this year's campaign for Un-
ion life members. Early Tuesday 20(
men divided into 20 committees will
start the drive to equal at least the
successful campaign of last ypar whet
1,000 men signed up and in all prob-
ability ,efforts will, be made to sur-
pass' the record of 1919.
During thi ' three day period,, 4,000
students; who are at present annual
members, will be solicited to become
life members. Although the purpose
of the drive is primarily to enlist
the seniors, every student will be ap-

the majority of the.20 chairmen, and
the entire number will be announced
within a 'few days. ' Each chairman
will name, 10 men to act as his assist-
ants. As last year each man will be
given a list of 20 stndents to ap-

The last campaign netted approx-
imately 1,00 memberkhips which
brought into the Union a sum of $50,-
000.' A larger sum will probably be
taken in this year, and although the
major part of this money will not be
received for some years, the aim of
the drive is to secure funds to com-
plete the unfinished parts of the build-
ing. !
May Continue Friday
Details of the campaign are bein,
worked out by Chaifmpn Porter, apd
will be announced within a few days.
It is expected that everyone can be
approached in the three days, set for
the drive, but it may be that a grand

Much Applause
Varsity Glee and Mandolin club took
their "mid-semester exam" last night
before a crowd of townspeople and sta-
depts estimated to be more than 2,000.
Hearty applause was given all of
the numbers, and some of the special
numbers were encored, notably the
"hula" dance by I. T. Sanborn, '201,
accompanied by the Varsity Stringed
Sextet, the selections by the "Sextet,"
and the Girls' Glee club. The girls
were called back after the two selec-
tions given, to render another.
Beginning the program, both the
Glee and Mandolin clubs united for
The Victors and Varsity. Alternate
numbers by each club followed, inter-
spersed wlh specialty numbers. Var-
sity Quartet was encored, following
their first selection. "Father Wil
lam" and "She Wilted" were given
next by the Glee club.,
"Jazz by the Jazz Sextet" came next,
and received a fullshare of the ap-
plause, the Sextet responding to an en-
Considerable amusement was creat-
ed by the specialty given Eby S. S.
Hawkes, '21, recalling !'The Days of
Yore" and "Joe and the Orient."
Ramsey Sings'
The "Stringed Sextet" was recalled
for a second selection, the crowd ap-
plauding long after they left thestage
.for the last time.
H. E. 'Ramsey, a Scotchman, sang
two numbers in that brogue. "There
Are No Tears" by the Glee club con-
clued their part singly in the pro-
gram, and Ave Maria by the Mandolin
club was theirl ast number.

'The proceeds of the Spotlight which
will be held this Frdiay will go to-

cost of the materials," said Homer
Heath, general manager of the
Union, "the sum needed for the con-

ly. The price that is quoted at pres-

from the Spotlight will not be a large
