"eGeorge Didk It"
Foremost Feature
Of Entire Week-
Will Play at Whitney Every night Ex-
cept Friday; Matinee Sched-
uled
Campus interest is again concen-
trated in Michigan's individual and
unique dramatic medium this week
and is highly stimulated by the ac-
ceptance of ah Opera book written by
success in all phases of *issell
have for two years taken this honor
out of students' hands. The direct
relation of this year's Opera to the
campus and its portrayal of campus
life at different stages in the history
of the University, and the circum-
stances unusually favorable to suc-
cess enjoyed, by the 1920 Union trav-
esty, offer stimulants to the interest.
Alternate attractions are not lack-
ing, Wallace Reid, Lillian Gish, Mar-
guerite Clark, and other screen stars
appearing in the manner of Japanese
picture brides at the local movie
theaters.

The play was first producedin the lat-
te" part of the nineteenth century and,
considered revolutionary in its silent
ending then, it still has a powerful
appeal.
The plot turns about a series of
events in New England life and the
refusal of the daughter of a stern and
stubborn farmer to marry the man
he chooses for her. At the same time
that the New Englander is recom-
mending him, the father's candidate is
swindling his prospective father-in-
law out of a life's savings. The most
dramatic scene in the picture comes
after the daughter has eloped on a
boat in a storm with the man she
loves, and her father blocks the keep-
er of a lighthous.e who is trying to
guide the ship from the rocks.
Like Ben Turpin, Professor?
"Your posture is good, and your
voice carries well," said the Oratory
2 instructor, "but I think, Miss -
you should use your eyes more Teffee-,
tively."

THE WHITNEY
A -rich heritage augurs strongly for
Barnes' "George Did It," the first Union
es' "George Did It," the first Union
fantasy in three years to be written
by a University student, which will
have its initial presentation tomor-
row at the W'hitney. The 1920 Mich-
igan Opera will have the benefits that
result from specialized experience in
at least three of the important factors
that effect dramatic and musical suc-
cess: directing, composing, and act-
ing.
Added to Mr. E. Mortimer Shuter's
ability as a successful director of col-
lege dramatics is the valuable exper-
ience that he has secured in present-
ing last year's opera. While chief
among the melody writers is George
Rode'rick, '21E, who produced the mus-
ic for songs in "Come On, Dad," a
large share of the major roles are tak-
en by former opera stars, among whom
are Kenp Keena of "Fools Paradise,"
Knight Mirrielees, who scored a hit
in "Come On, Dad," Paul Wilson, the
demure leading lady of "Come On,
Dad," and George Duffield, also of
"Come On, Dad.' Besides these Wil-
liam H. Turner, Reed Bachman, Ed-
win S. Larson, and Phillip E. Ring-
er who appear in "George Did It" were
prominent in former Union produc-
tions. Experienced men make up
nearly half of all those in the cast.
THE MAJESTIC .
After being robbed of clothes, car,
money, and letters of introduction,
and then being thrown out of a bank
as a tramp, Wallace Reid, "Speed"
Carr in "Double Speed," which will be
presented today, tomorrow, and Tues-
day at the Majestic, pretends first that
he is "Barry Cole," a chauffeur, and
then, on request from his employer,
impersonates himself.
With this beginning "Double Speed"
races along carrying the hero first
into one set of difficulties and then
into another, each of which is brim
full of comedy possibilities. In the
end, of course, Ca* re-instates him-
self as a prospective millionaire, and
marries the banker's daughter whom
he had first seen driving the new
roadster that had only a short time
before been stolen from him.
In "Luck in Pawn," coming Wed-
nesday and Thursday to the Majestic,
Marguerite Clark again appears in a
Broadway success which has been
translated to the screen. It follows
in direct succession "Widow by
Proxy," which was originally present-
ed in the spoken drazAa.
