CHRHISTMAS REN'T_-
TO BE HALF PRICE[
Old Rule Relatlie to Absence of More
Than Ten Days
Reaffirmed
MAKE SETTLEMENTS AFTER
VACATION-GEORGE HURLEY
Landladies can charge students only
half rent during Christmas -vacatiou
according to a decision reached at a
meeting of President Harry B. Hutch-
,ins, Dean Myra B. Jordan, Secretary
George Hurley of the Union, and sev-
eral profesgrs of the Law Schoo.
"It is a. rule that a student should
only pay half rent when absent for a
period of more than 10 days unless it
is specifically stated otherwise upon,
renting the room," said Secretary Hur-
ley in speaking of the situation. "If
no agreement can be reached with the
landlady the student is advised not
to pay any rent until after Christ-
mas vacation when the matter can be
taken up with the proper authorities."
In answer to the numerous com-
plaints lodged at the Union on this
account Secretary Hurley advised the
students not - to let the landladies
bluff them into paying full rent. The
half rent proposition is just as much
a rule as the rule that students are
required to keep their rooms the en-
tire year. Landladies who insist on I
charging full rent furnish the,room-
era with ample reason to leave and
are liable to have their names pub-
lished for profiteering.

rUNITY CHARACTAIZES"
YILASlNTI CHOIR WORK(
EVERY WORD aN NORMAL CON-
kCERT RENDERED WITH
CLARITY
(By M. D. L.)
Perfect unity characterized the pro-
gram of Christmas music given by
the Ypsilanti Normal choir last night
at St. Andrew's church. The choir
of 200 voices, under the direction of
Frederick Ale ander; head of the .de-
partnent of music at Ypsilanti Norm-
a,'evidenced wonderful training in
choral work. The chorus gave a aim-
!lar program Sunday night at the
North ' Woodward Congreagtional
church in Detroit.
Unaccompanied by the, organ in its
choral work, the eboir rendered every
word of the ancient Christmas chants
with absolute clarity. Tonal expres-
,son- varying trom the most delicate
notes to a 'triumphant crescendo
showed the control, of the conductor
over the voices.
Perhaps the most effective number
of the program was the "Credo" chant-
ed as an accompanment to the Russ-
Ian Nicene Creed sung' by Carl Lin-
degren. This and the "The Legend of
the Sage Bush," 'by Mr. Kerr furnished
a pleasing variety in the program of
ehoral selections. The selections rang-
ed from the ifteenth cetury to coi-
positions of comparatively recent date,
practically all nations being repre-
sented in the program. "A Happy
Song of Christmas," an old French
Noel arranged for three choruses,
conculded the program. \ '
This is the third of the Matinee
Musicale concert series.,
YOUR PART IN THE
SOLUTION OF THE ;
ATHLETIC PROBLEM
That Fielding H. Yost has not for-;
gotten the University of Michigan even
though he is, at present, busy as a
business'man, can be, with personal
worries back home, is evidenced by a
letter to The Daily, that should serve
as an inspiration for those students
who will soon. be home where .they
can talk Michigan to material that
Michigan needs.
Coach Yost offers a few sugges-
tions to those who are going to be of
Service to Michigan. He says in his
letter:
"You might use this as a little sum-
mary of athletic advantages Michigan
offers: We have the finest athletic
field in the country; the finest base-
'ball field and stands; the finest foot-
ball field in\ the west; the largest
seating capacity -of 'a'ny University
west of Philadelphia."
These are only a few of his suges-
-tions., His main plea is for mate-
rial. See to it that he is suppied.

If it is after '8 o'clock Wednesday
morning when you read this and the
earth seems tp be still the same as
ever, you may be reasonably sure
that "Professor" Porta, the astrono-
mer who prophesied the end of the
world for this morning, erred consid-
erably in his calculations.
If classes seem to be going on as
usual and University hall still' re-
tains its inviting appearance, it is
safe to say, that Porta will take the

holds with the bards, Homer and
Shakespeare.
Instead of fire and brimstone for
breakfast as some feared this morn-
ing, the poor student will receive his'-
everyday equivalent, hot cakes and
coffee. To be sure, the idea of the
world coming to an-' end has its ad-
vantages. Why study? That was the
word on every tongue last night.
