iiayence, April 5.-The French
troops will occupy Frankfort eary
tomorrow morning. Some detach-
ments have already started for
Paris, April 5.-The attitude of the
French government in the present
German crisis is defined and explained
in a note issued tonight. After reit-
erating that the government has no
hostile designs towards Germany, de-
siring on the contrary the resumption
of relations with that country and ex-
pressing realization of the difficult
situation of the Berlin government, the
note declares that the German govern-
ment has given way to pressure by
the militarist party "not fearing to
infringe the imperative and most sol-
emn stipulations of- the Versailles
Intervention Uncalled For
The note continues: "All information
from the Allied missions and from the
high commissioners at Coblenz shows
that German military intervention i.
uncalled for by the situation, and it
would be attended by the gravest
dangers from the point of view of
security both for the population and
the men in the field."
The note then points out that if the
German government had carried out
the disarmament clauses of the treaty,
there would have been neither the
Kapp insurrection nor a Red army in
Dusseldorf, April 5.-The advance of
Reichweir in the Ruh.r region contin-
ues and Oberhausen, Dortmund, and
Luegenscheid were occupied today.
Only a few hundred communists offer-
ed resistence to the occupation. Com-
munication with the occupied towns
has been cut.off.
AIRMEN TO HEAR 4
Four or possibly five men well
known to University and state avia-
tors will speak at the banquet to be
given by the University of Michigan
Aeronautical society at 6:30 o'clock
tonight in the Union. Major Boots,
commanding officer of Selfridge field,
Prof. H. C. Sadler of the engineering
college, Maj. C. E. Wilson, professor
of mechanical engineering, and Prof.
F.. W. Pawlowski, professor of aero-
nautical engineering, are the ones
who will address the airmen. The club
is also trying to secure Colonel Wal-
don from Detroit to speak.
Vlans are now being formulated for
securing a plane and it Is thought
likely that the organization will be
able to get one within the next few
weeks. If it is successful in arrang-
ing for a plane, entries will be made
in the intercollegiate aviation meet
and the aerial derby to be held in
Atlantic City in June.
STUDENTS CHOSEN FOR
Elections to the University church
services committee for the year 1920-'
1921 were made recently at a meet-
ing of the present committee. The fol-

next year: Marcella Moon, '21, Mar-
guerite Clark, '21, Robert Grindley,
'21E, Richard Losch, '21E, Chesser
Campbell, '21, and Fred Petty, '21.
The next meeting of the University
church services committee will take
place at 3 o'clock Wednesday after-
noon in Lane hall. Selection of
speakers for next year's monthly ser-
ices will be made and details for next
year's organization will be planned.
No announcement has as yet been
made of the next University union
service, which will be the last one
this year. It is expected, however, that

Bolsheviki at Nikolaevsk, Eastern
Siberia, according to cable advices
received by the New World, a Japan-

CHEMICAL ENGINEERS TO GO
ON ANNUAL TOUR FRIDAY
The classes in chemical engineering
will make their annual inspection trip
during the spring vacation, beginning
this Friday, to several factories situat-
ed in Chicago and vicinity.
"All the factories to be visited on
the proposed itinerary have been chos-
en with the intention of giving a well-
rounded viewpoint of chemical eng-
ineering activity, and in each case are
among the largest in this country,"
maid Prof. A. E..Whte of the chemical
Prof. W. L. Badger of the chemical
engineering department, will have
charge of the trip, and Prof. W. P.
Wood will also probably accompany
the party. Details of the itinerary
may be had from Professor Badger.
Students not in the chemical engi-
neering department who desire to
make the trip, must have special per-
mission from Professor Badger. Nec-
essary expenses will be about $40.
FREIGHT CAR JUMPS TRACK;
HOLDS UP M. C. TRAFFIC
Traffic on the Michigan Central
railroad was tied up for a short time
Sunday afternoon when a freight car
jumped the track west of Ypsilanti.
The car crossed both main line tracks,
and all trains were forced to stop
until the car was back on the track.
The tie-up lasted about two hours.
Both Wolverines were held at Ann Ar-
bor during that time..
Officials of the M. C. said Tuesday
that the snowfall did no harm as far
as had been learned yesterday. Trains
were running about on schedule.
(By H. Hardy Heth)
Perhaps somewhere in literature of
Union opera there has been a better
song than "The Light in Your Eyes"-
but we cannot remember it. Perhaps
in the usual theatrical calendar of in-
-veterate farce there has been a more
adaptable and more cleverly integrat-
ed plot, than "George Did It," but such
a one has gone unchronicled.
And the wave of eicitement always
prevalent in the atmosphere of an "op-
ening night" only added glamor to the
riot of color upon the stage. Through-
out, the production was one of color-
mixings and melody and balmy atmos-
phere, and up-to-the-minute enter-
prise, devoid for the most part of
hackneyed situation. And the audi-
ence was pleased, psychologically
"Sandy" Wilson, starring in a song
written by himself, "You're In It,"
drew encore after encore even after
the show was nearly ended and most
people had got over being enthus-
iastic. And ,once again Knight Mir-
rielees proved himself the finished
comedian, possessing the suavity, nat-
ural vivacity and clever facial expres-
sion of a genuine farceur.
Keena Good in "Straight" Part
Kemp Keena in his "straight" part,
with no mask of character to hide be-
hind, with a frank, likable and virile
personalityvwithout any impression of
being impressed by his own impor-
tance, was especially pleasing because
of his~ singing voice.
Tom Hart lends himself admirably
to farcical abandon and coutagious
humor. His "I'm Suspicious" was a
rarity, but he drew even more laughs
in the last act as the vacuous, gilded
youth with affected miannerisms.
Act One a Novelty
Act one was a novelty. The setting
of ancient Ann Arbor was a feature in
itself, and the depth of stage gave a
metropolitan aspect as a first impres-
sion. In the interlude Paul R. Wil-
son, as the aunt, revealed lis admir-
able voice, and approached his diffi-
cult role with what was - to say the
least - delicate and artistic hand-
Here, also Tom Underwood gained
ascendency in the song "Ann Arbor
Days" which was the second tune of
the production destined to live in the
annals of college creation as a motif
embodying true Michigan spirit. The
Interlude as a piece of staging, was
remarkable. Its romantic handling
and fantastic breath of reminiscence
never lacked finese. But because of
its very isolation from the other sec-
tions of the comical tirades it would
probably not survive critics who are
skilled in all the subtleties that tickle
Broadway's satiated palate.
Ted Larsen did his interpretation
of an irate old man with the full meas-
ure of incisiveness and irony requir-
ed. Paul Eaton, as the demure co-
quette in fancy flowered gown, drew
many laughs, and Reed Bachman in
a checkered suit of "ye olden time"
put across impoi tant lines.
Last Act Colorful
The last act, a palatial rendezvous
with hangings of vivid rosp and gold
and blue, was further enhanced with
costumes that formed color effects biz-
arre and novel. Here the most finish-
ed work was done by the oriental
dancers in a rendition of "Mecca" that
was without any rough edge. The first
spontaneous applause of the evening
greeted this dance in which Irwin
Sanborn especially featured, but Karl
Velde, Jack Holden, and Ceilan Rorick
deserve equal credit. A duet dance by
Matthew Lamport as Pierrette and
Philip Ringer as Pierrot won-enthus-
iastic laurels. for the heads of these
two petit performers.
It was in this last act that George
Duffield proved he could "vamp" in
the manner of a fastidious, lophisti-
cated woman with clinging velvet
gown and.a red, red fan. All males
present in the audience announce him
Harold Lauver, as the Ann of the
last act, is perhaps the best straight
interpretation of the young girl that
the show contains. 1;is dance was
particularly smooth and he was back-
ed by a most able quartette.-
Schirmer Shows Ease of Manner
Last but by no means least, Albert
Schirmer as the son of an over-de-
voted uncle, crowned his "9ueen" In!
an unpretentious way that savored in-
herently of the "boy." He even struck
a melancholy note now and then when1
he did not intend to do so, which, in

a scene of much gayety is not entirely
unsatisfactory. He has the gift of
ease and unmistakable perzonality.
All the graceful and intricate num-
bers of the chorus were filled by the
vivacious and brilliant and daintier
charms of the chorus girls. And the
lapse of time-from the days of 1859
to the ultra-civilization of Pasadena in
1916-makes a variety that is pecu-
liarly irresistible. The quaint appeal
of the days when Ann Arbor was so
lurid that the sheriff was busy with
28 different mysteries "all at once"
could not fail of appreciation and pop-
ularity among Ann Arbor personnel
But the fact remains that the last
act was the triumph, that the attempt
to do a big thing in a big way was
everywhere sustained, and that every-
one of the cast as well as E. Mortimer
Shuter, director, and Earl V. Moore,
musical director, together with Rus-
sell Barnes and George Roderick the
writers--stood upon a pinnacle of
achievement at the finale.

(By Associated Press)
Detroit, April 5.-Early returns on
today's presidential primarries indi-
cated a close race between Maj. Gen.
Leonard Wood and United States Sena-
tor Hiram Johnson, for the endorse-
ment as Republican nominee.
Returns from scattered precincts in
42 counties at midnight gave Johnson
a lead over Wood of 6,126. Herbert
Hoover, whose name was on both Re-
publican and Democratic ticket, was
leading the Democrats with a vote of
1,735 against 1,678 for Governor Ed-
wards of New Jersey, his nearest op-

Democrats: 221 precincts; Hoover,
1,735; Edwards, 1,678; McAdoo, 1,477;
Bryan, 1,299; and Palmer, ' 40.
General Wood had taken a lead in
the .early reports which were ~chiefly
from rural precincts.
The California senator carried 127
Detroit precincts which returned 18,-
960 votes against 4,738 for General
Wood, who was his closest opponent.
Senator Johnson's headquarters claim-
ed that their candidate would carry
the state by approximately 40;000. .
The reports indicate that the vote

was lighter than had been generally
