Comedy Club To
Start Year Today
Comedy club will officially open its
1919-20 season with the tryouts to be
held from 1:30 to 3:30 o'clock this
afternoon in the auditorium of Uni-
versity hall. The tryouts consist of
short selections either impromptu or
of the candidate's own choosing to be
given before 'a committee of five
iudges. Wherever possible, tryouts
are recommended to give some selec-
tion they have already worked on.
Plans for the ensuing year of the
club embrace a series of monthly
meetings at which available people cif
the stage will speak and short, infor-
mal plays will be given by the mem-
bers before the rest of -the club. It
is hoped in this way to give every
member a chance to appear at least
once on the stage before an audience
no matter how unpretentious the pro-
duction may be. In addition, the an-
nual 'comedy will be presented in true
theatrical fashion during the year.
The . first meeting of the club will
be held the first Tuesday in Novem-

Two of the documents photograph-
ed page by page and published in
heliotype form in volumes eight and
nine of the University of Michigan
studies, humanistic series, one at an
expense of $14,000 and the other cast-
ing $8,000. The outlay for this was
given by Mr. Freer on the condition
that a copy of each of these books,
worth at least $75 apiece, should be
distributed by the University without
any charge to all of the important
libraris- of the world, principally
those of universities, none of them to,
be sold to private collectors.
$30,000 Expended
Mr. Freer also paid for the publish-
ing of volumes 10 and 12 of the Uni-
versity of Michigan studies, humanis-
tic series, which together with volumes
8 and 9,'represented a disbursement of
more than $30,000. When the Alumni
Memorial hall was first opened., he
furnished the exhibition, containing a
remarkable congeries of Japanese art,
bearing the cost entailed thereby
amounted to a considerable sum. 1\fr.
Wilfred B. Shaw, general secretary
of the Alumni association, described
the exhibition as a very notable art
display. Mr. Freer also donated a
sketch of John H. Twachtman which
is hung in Mr. Shaw's office in AlumIli
Memorial hal.
Mr. Freer was honored by the Uni-
versity with the degree pf master of
arts in 1904.

dents desiring to consult Professor

this time,
In connection with the work of the
advisory committee, which has been
revived this year, Dean Elffinger
strongly advises freshmen to consult
their instructors. They are at all
times willing to give advice and by
reason of their acquaintance with the
individual student are in a position to
do so. Students having special prob-
lems should see Professor Davis.

Prof. A. A. Stanley and his col-

The new series will be conducted in-'
dependently of the present'Choral un-

tive programs which will add great
variety to the musical offerings on ac-
count of the limited number in the reg.-
ular series heretofore.
Five Programs Planned
There will be five programs in the
list of concerts including two popular
ensemble combinations, as well as r-J

tion to, the other series will be mate-7
rially lower in price for course tick-I

$2.00. Mail orders will be filled in or-+
der of receipt and tickets will be
selected as nearly as possible, from
the 'location desired.
AccountN of transients will be the
only ones affected by the ruling of
the Ann Arbor bank regarding the
amount of each check, according to!
Carl F. Braun, vice-president of the
bank. In some cases where paynientj
of a bill is made through the mail, Mr.*
Braun stated that it would be all,
right for the check to be under the
specified amount;
"A.ll that we want," said Mr. Braun,
"is that the students should meet us

halfway. We want to be.of service
to the students and in order to ap-
proach breaking even on the tran-
sient deposits, it is necessary for us
to ask them to write checks for moreI
than $5. Such a system worked lastd
year, and we believe that it will work I
this y ear."

Adjournment -eame after the con-

the employers group declaring for the
principle of the open shop.and affirm-
ing that "no enployer should be re-
quired to deal with men or groups of
men who are not his employes or
chosen by and from among them." The
latter principle created quite a stir
in the conference and was considered
by some of the delegates as approval
of the stand taken by Judge Elbert H.

The traditions that surround the
"maize and blue" are deep in the
I earts of Michigan men and tlis is
appreciated by those selling pennants
and banners of the unoflicial colors,
but as they are only acting in ac-
cordance with the student demand for
the darker color it is the student sel-
ection that will have to change if the
proper colors are to be observed.
AzureLiked for Jewelry
Storekeepers state that it is only
with the stationery and jewelry bear-
ing the official colors of the Univer-
sity that a favorable demand is felt
and that in the case of these articles
the azure blue is most often the selec-
tion of the students.
The general opinion among the busi-
ness men operating student stoies i
that the students should observe the
offlicial colors and according to these
storekeepers the solution of the mat-
ter lies in the selection of the prop-
er colors on the part of the student.
