it was enough to put the team nearer

remember it, Michigan finished below
Illinois in the basketball percentage

the Wolverines this year fail to show
any ground whatever for their claim-

Michigan is living too much on her
reputation of several years ago. If
she is to have any right to claim pres-

live in the present. What she did a
decade ago has little weight in win-

now in proclaiming Herself the true
champion of the west will not gain
her favor in' the eyes of the other
echools of the Western Conference. As

Dances Mlake Hit
A t Opera JMatinee
(By Minnie Musatt)
Hoops at the hem-hoops at the hip-
hoops at the Hop-such are the succes-
sive stages of time through which we
were ,taken in the Union opera,
"George Did It," at the Whitney thea-
ter Friday before vacation.. Although
the witty libretto and lyrics of Rus-
sell Barnes, '20, prompted much merri-
ment, although the music of George
H. Roderick, 21E, was of more than
ordinary merit, although the efforts of
the dozen principals were well receiv-
ed, it was the chorus of "girls" and the
duet, sextette, quartette, and octette
dances that captured the audience with
their beauty, their nimble stepping and
their unusual srtorial display.
The relief in the interlude from the
sentimental retrospect of Act I was
indeed a welcbme one-and by the
way-the interlude and Act II are as
pretty and original a bit of staging as
can be seen on any stage.
John ("Sandy") Wilson, '20, as Bill
Jones, the politician and moving pic-
ure promoter, scored a merited hit-
his ease, grace of manner and care-
less recognition of his success win for
him the appreciation of the audience
who are loathe to let him go even after
his 57 varieties of encores to "You're
In It."'
Harold Lauver, '22E, as Anne, could'
well be an understudy of the original
"Julian," and such dancing as Mat-
thew Lamport, '22, and Philip E. Rin-
ger, '22, exhbited is seldom seen off
the professional stage. The oriental
dancers were nothing less than weird
in their presentation..
The prophecies for the perfection of
the Friday fternoon performance
were well fulfilled.

PONTIAC CLUB WORKS FOR
M*ICHIGAN DURING VACATION
During spring vacation the Pontiac
club carried out an extensive program
in influencing high school students to
come to Michigan. The first event
was a banquet at which George Hodg-
es, '20, and Myrtle Bohm, '20, told of
the adrantages for men and women at
Michigan. Michigan songs were sung.
Later at a mass meeting of the en-
tire student body of the high school,
Earl Miles, '22L, and Maurice Moule,

'23, spoke on the value of a college
education. Members of the club did
"personal work" among the seniors.
The club also elected the following
officers: president, Earl Miles, '22L;

retary, Murray -Van Wagoner, '21E;-

START WORK ON PRESIDENT'S
HOUSE AND UNIVERSITY HALL '
Work on the remodeling of Univer-
sity Hall and on the repairs to the
president's house was begun during
spring vacation by the building and
'grounds department.
The false floors in University Hall
have already been ripped out in prep-
aration for the actual constraction
work. Much of the labor in this work
was performed by students, whose re-
turn to school will now cause, a se-
rious set-back, as other men will have
to be secured in their places. The re-
modeling of the auditorium will not be
completed until another month at best,
and during this time' Hill auditorium
will probably be used in its place.
The repairs on the president's house
have also been started. A pipe trench
for conducting heat was dug last
week and new galvanized iron rain
troughs were placed on the eaves.
Foundations for. a new chimney, a
sun-parlor, and a garage were also
laid.
