CONCERN PROBLEMS TO BE DEALT
WITH AT UNION CONVEN-
TION IN MAY
To facilitate the ':interchange of
ideas between university Unions and
to have at hand the solution of some
of their problems when they convene
here early in May, questionnaires
have been sent out to Unions and
similar organizations by the general
secretary and financial secretary of
the Michigan Union. Discussions of
these problems at theyonvention will.
also be facilitated thereby.
Questions relating to student activ-
ities are covered, as for instance in-
quiring by what system each uni-
versity Union discovers what talent
exists on ; the campus 'and how men
are located for specific interests.
Further inquiries deal with the mat-
ter of student employment,- universal
union membership and similar, prob-'
As a means of getting in closer
touch with the alumni, plans are now
under consideration to bring to Ann
Arbor for this convention of Unions
the secretaries of alumni associations,
who will meet here the following
week for their annual convention. In-
vitations will be sent out to them as
soon as the speakers for the Union
.onvention have accepted. Programs
can then be printed and included
with the invitations.

CAMPAIGN FOR FUND OPENS ON
CAMPUS THIS MORN-
The statue of a woman, worn ana
beaten down by the storm of battle but
dauntlessly raising aloft the flag of
liberty, is to be the memorial pre-
sented to the French people by the
American people, according to infor-
mation received today from the na-
tional executive committee for the
campaign. It is planned to have the
statue of huge proportions, perhaps
even larger than the Statue of Lib-
erty, though that point has not been
definitely decided. The Bartholdi
statue is the largest work of its kind
in the world.
The memorial is to 'be erected at
Meaux upon a site to be selected oy
Marshal Foch and Marshal Joffre.
Meaux, the "frontier of freedom," was
the high point of the German advance
The campaign on the campus opens
this morning. At the three places
designated, one in front of the Li-
brary, one in University hall and one
in Engineering arch, subscriptions
will be received and the little red
tags passed out.
It is the desire of the Sphinx com-
mittee in charge to limit the drive
to today and it is thought that no
longer time will be required to raise
the campus allotment.
Michigan's negative debating teant
leaves at 8:50 o'clock this morning for
Madison, Wis., to meet Friday night
witr Wisconsin affirmative team in the

rectors of such corporations-all di-
rectors to have equal rights and priv-
ileges." Mr. Ray K. Immel, of the ora-
tory department and contest director,
will accompany the team to Madison.
Teams Up to Standard
The two teams had a head-on de-
bate last night in their final prac-
tice. Prof. Thomas C. Trueblood of
the oratory department said, "These]
teams compare well with the standard
of former Michigan teams, especially
of those since 1918, when the ruling
was passed that only undergraduates

JUNIOR GIRLS' PLAY TO
BE PRESENTED TWICE
(By Dorothy Montfort)
For many years, the women of Ann
Arbor in general and of the Univer-
sity in particular who are real judges
of good productions have enjoyed the
dramatic ability shown by junior girls
in their annual play.
Will Give Two Productions
In former years, the small seating
capacity of Sarah Caswell Angell hall
necessitated the turning away of a
number of people. Even the Whitney
theater which was used last year
failed to accommodate all who wished
to attend. To do away, with this dif-
ficulty two productions have been
planned for Friday night and Satur-
Cast WPell Fitted
Prof. John R. Blrumm has stated
that never before have the members
of the cast been so well fitted for their
parts. The singing and dancing fea
tures of the 19 choruses are of a su*
perior quality, while the intricate
steps are said to rival those of Al
Jolson's "Sinbad." A diversity of tal-
ent is represented, several nationali-
ties taking part.
A few tickets are still available at'
Graham's book store.

their last chance to secure tickets for

their orders. After 5 o'clock this aft-
ernoon they will be placed on the
same basis as others. The box of-
fice sale for University women will
be held from 2 to 5 o'clock Saturday
afternoon at Hill auditorium. Slips
for the order of this sale may be se-
cured at the uffile of the dean of
women today and tomorrow.
Good Seats Left
Although there has been a heavy
sale of seats to Union members and
men of the cast, committee and chor-
us during the last few days there are
still a number of good seats avail-
able for most of the performances.
Indications point to well filled houses
at all six of the local performances.
Rehearsals Under Way
The rehearsals are well under way
with Director Shuter running the men
through the whole performance al-
most every night. "If the costumes
were here the show could be put on
next Monday," said Mr. Shuter last

Thirty-one, of Karpus' ponts were

neither Dunne n Rea dik any free

To Elect Student Members
At a meeting of the Board of Di-
rectors yesterday, it was decIded that
the three student members of that
board should be elected at the an-
nual campus election from six men
nominated by the Board of Directors.
Heretofore the board has appointed
the student members of the Board in
Control of Athletics.
Letter Replaces Monogram
Another decision which was reach-
ed at the meeting concerns the em-
blem to be worn on Varsity hats.
From now on members of all teams
will wear a small block "M" on their
hats, instead of the monograms which
have been the rule previously.

laws of the Athletic association will
