1iD IN ENFORCING
CLOSINGRWKES SKED
STUDENTS MAY BE OF GREAT AS-t
SISTANCE SAYS DOUG.
LASS
Students can materially aid in en-t
forcing the resolutions' adpoted by
Ann Arbor business men for the ec-
onomizing of fuel and power, during1
the present crisis, by refusing to pat-
ronize merchants who fail to live up
to the agreement in regard to shorten-i
ing the business hours, according to
W. W. Douglass, district fuel direct-
or.
Is a Sacrifice
"It is quite a sacrifice for the bus-I
iness men to close their stores early,"
said Mr. Douglass, "just before the
holiday season, but the majority of
them have agreed to do it in order to
.meet the present fuel shortage. Therer
are some, however, who have ignored
this agreement and are keeping open
after 5 o'clock. This is not fair to
the men who are doing all within theirI
power to economize.
"Under the Garfield order, drugj
stores are allowed to keep open until7
8 o'clock, but there is no reason for
some of our druggists remaining open
after 5 o'clock, as the majority of their
business after this time is'soda foun-
tain trade."
Expect Greater Power
Speaking of the expected govern-j
ment order giving the power to en-
force closing hours, Mr. Douglass said,
"We have not the power to enforce the
hours 'agreed".upn at the busness
men's meeting last Monday but I am
'expecting the necessary authority at{
any time and as soon as it comes the
restrictions will be enforced to the
,letter. "At the present the time set
for closing" is merely a voluntary,
hough necessary action on the part
of the business men of the city."
The Screen
THE MAJESTIC
Featured with Enid Bennett in "The
Virtuous Vamp," which will be repeat-
ed again tpday at the Majestic, is Lar-
ry Semon in "Dew Drop Inn," a spec-
ial Vitagraph comedy.
Playing the role of a Tennessee
revenue officer, he performs unusual
acrobatics as well as .causing laughs
by his humorous antics. One of his
best bits of entertainment is his gain-
ing access to the moonshiners' lair by
resorting to a unique form of cam-
ouflage. Besides Semon's own com-
edy arenumerous other amusing fea-
tures including a bevy of pretty girls
and an Egyptian dance.
THE ARCADE
Four different sets of characters are
followed in "The Hushed Hour," fea-
turing Blanche Sweet, to be shown
today at the Arcade. The story opens
with a scene in the home ofJudge Ap-
pleton shortly after his death. His
four children Virginia Appleton Blod-
gett, played by Miss Sweet, and Rob-
ert, Luke and Daisy are discussing
their father's last request, that each
should spend an hour in meditation,
over their past lives and try to be as
upright, charitable, and forgiving as
he.was, during the rest of their lives.
The past lives of the four children are-
then portrayed.
ALPHA NU WILL DEBATE
QUESTION OF OPEN SHOP

Application of the open shop prin-
ciple to American industry for the
best interests'of the American people,
will form the topic of discussion at
the regular meeting of the Alpha Nu
debating society to be held at 7:30
o'clocl Friday evening on the fourth
floor of University hall. Three-men
teams will lead the debate. The meet-
ing will be open to visitors.
Thirty-one initiates to the Alpha Nu
were admitted to membership last
Saturday afternoon in University
hall.
U. of I. Experiencing Coal Shortage
Beginning on December 7 the
with offenders against the lighting
students at the University of Illinois
started to leave the university in con-
tingents of 1,000 per day. It is im-
possible for the university to'get more
coal. The students are being desig-
nated alphabetically as to which ones
are to go on certain days. It is ex-
pected that the university will be able
to reopen on Jan. 5, 1920.,

..&A1N UMIL Y
THE WHITNEY
Varied forms of dramatic enter-
tainment are presented in "Red
Feather" which will make its '.nitial
appearance,hunder the auspices of
the University Dramatic society, to-
night at the Whitney. Dancing, sing-
ing, and comedy have been incorpor-
ated in this well-balanced opera by
its authors, Reginald De Koven and
Charles Klein.
Three spies, Colonel McPatrick,
played by H. D. Stubbs, '22, Baron
Blunderstorms, presented by Milton
'ehling,'20,and Benjamin Bowler, play-
ed by John F. Walker, furnish a good
share of the comedy. They change
their disguises frequently, as all good
detectives should, and their make-ups'
are one of the important comical ef-
Jects of the play. Their witty and
drole dialogue is; another big source
of amusement.
Special scenery, painited by Carl
Brummelwho furnishes the scenery for
."The Follies," serves as a back ground;
for the development of the story. {
Scenic effects include the background.;
for the first act, a reproduction of the
public square in Romancia, showing a
part of the exterior of the royal cafe,
at the right and Madamoselle Fifne's
;millinery store on the left, while the
scene of the second act is the interior
of the Countess Draga's castle.
