Might Consider Sending Cast to Mid-
West Cities This
Following the special performance1
given in Detroit last night members
of the cast, chorus and committees of
"Top o' th' Mornin" returied to Ann
Arbor on a late special train last night
after the most successful tour ever
taken by a Michigan Union opera.
Full House in Each City ,
During the 10-day tour ofMichigan
cities performances were given in Bat-
tle Creek, Jackson, Pontiac, Port Hu-
ron, Bay City, Saginaw, Flint and De-
trait. At practically every city capac-
ity houses greeted the opera. A mat-
inee was given in -Jackson and the
Monday night performance was an-
nounced for Detroit when Orchestra
hall was completely sold out for the
Saturday show.
The tour was not only a complete
success financially but the entertain-
ment accorded the members of the
troupe in each city was without doubt
never before equalled. Bad weather
was encountered several times during
the trip but it had little effect upon
the seat sales. With each perform-
ance the ,members of the show gained
in experience and in some instances
additions were made to parts which
made the final performances even bet-
ter than those witnessed in Ann Ar-
bor. The audiences, both alumni and
others, were enthusiastic over the.
opera and from the opening of the
first act until the final curtain music,
dances and humor were greeted with
heavy applause and encore after en-
core wa's demanded of the actors.
Dances were held in each city after
the show and at some, others enter-
tainment was provided for the men in
the afternoon.
Audiences Enthusiastic
Due to the reception given "Top o'
th' Mornin"' and the enthusiasm of
the alumni, plans are no being con-
sidered by the managemt t of the
opera for an eXtensive tour of Mid-

Western cities during the early part
of the summer vacation. Many who
saw the show stated that it was the
best college production they had ever
witnessed and large' numbers of Mich-
igan alumni expressed themselves as
favoring a more extensive tour during
the summer vacation.
Prof. David Friday, of the economics
department, was the guest of honor
and the principal speaker at the an-
nual dinner of'the University of Mich-
igan,. club of Cleveland, held at the
University club in Cleveland last Fri-
day, April 15. Professor Friday spoke
on the "Curse of Peace" and gave' a
lively discussion of the confused -in-
dustrial conditions of today.
Former Judge William L. Day, 'OOL,
acted as toastmaster for the dinner,
and talks were also given by Alex-
ander C. Brown and several other

Waterbury, Brophy, Gaines, and Eaton
Attend Eastern MeetIngs for
Practically every phase of the prob-
lems. of self-government, management
and operation of college publications,
athletic control, and organizatior ofi
musical clubs was discussed at the in-
tercollegiate conference held at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
in Boston, April 15 and 16, at whicha
30 colleges and universities were rep-
resented by 150 delegates. LeGrand
A. Gaines, Jr., '21E, pesident of' the
Student council, Paul W. Eaton, '21,
president of the Union Lester E. Wat-
erbury, '21L, managing editor of
Chimes, and George 0. Brophy, '22L,
managing editor of The Daily, were
the 'representatives of the University.
In the discussion of student govern-
ment it was found that in most of the
larger universities, such as the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania, Harvard, and
M. I. T., there is little or no faculty
control. In the smaller colleges fac-
ulty control was exercised to a mark-
ed degree.
Ho'or System Discussed
Opinions varied as to the h'nor sys-
tem of conducting examinations. Del-
egates from colleges where it had been
tried endorsed .it while others were
opposed to the plan. Harvard, Yale,
and Dartmouth favored athletic con-
trol by a body composed of faculty,
alumni, and students similar to the
board in control here. Princeton
thought that faculty control was the
The representatives from the west-
ern colleges were keenly interestted in
the question of professionalisn in ath-
letics. It was decided by a unani-
mous vote that it was undesirable for
college baseball teams to play exhibi-
tion games with professional niies.

Work at the ne University hospital
now under construction continues to
be, impaired by the strike of the car-
penters, plumbers and electricians
which took effect beginning the morn-
ing of April 8.
At that time workers were notified
by their employers that a 20 per cent
reduction would take effect Xiay 1, to
conform with the reductions made by
unions in every city in Michigan ex-
cept Ann Arbor. 'A. R. Cole, local
building contractor, gave out the
statement that such a reduction was
inevitable in all building trade.,
Conferences between the workers'

representatives' and the Washtenaw
building Employers' association are
being hald but as yet no agreement
has been,reached. At the present time
only bricklayers and stonesetters are
at. work.
Appropriations have been made re-
cently by the legislature that may be
used in constructing four additional
stories to the new hospital, but such
a course is, as yet, undecided.
Dr. L. P. Hall of the Dental college,

manuel Wiedman of Ypsilanti, will

French .Attitude
"The Attitude of the French Toward
the Peace Treaty" is the subject of a
lecture to be delivered before the Cer-
cle Francais at 4:15 o'clock tomorrow
afternoon in room 203 Tappan hall
by Prof. Charles B. Vibbert, of t&e'
philosophy department.
This address, which was originally
scheduled to be given before spring
vacation, is one of this year's series
under the auspices of the Cercle Fran
cais. Professor Vibbert is said to be
especially well fitted to handle the
topic on which he will speak. He
was in Paris during the war as di-
rector of the Michigan bureau of the
American University Union and some-
what later was elected director of the
whole organization, in which capacity
he served for about 14 months.
Serving abroad in this way, he came
in contact with many men prominent
in politics, journalism, and official
work, and was thus able to secure
much first hand information with' ref-
erence to the French attitude'on the
Peace Treaty.
