acond Presentation of Great Spanish
Play Reaches High Perfection Point


(By H. A. D.)
With the advantage of a tfrst night
success as an incentive to reach the,
highest possible 'point of perfection,
members of the cast of "The Great
Galeoto", made their second appear-
ance last night in Sarah Caswell An-
gell hall.
The gr.eat Spanish problem drama,
so well executed in last night's per-
formance, is without doubt one of
the heaviest modern productions ever
attempted by University students. The
tragic climax finale of the second
act gave the principals an opportu-
nity to offer every ounce of feeling
at their command. The execution o$
the climax of the third act demand-
ed an even greater display of feel-
ing, and the demand was fully satis-;
Wendell F. Hanselman, '22, in the
leading role, as Ernesto, displayed a

depth of emotion in every line,, un-
usual in an amateur. The more el-
derly role of Severo, the well mean-'
ing brother, was played by R. S.
Tubbs, '22, who was perfectly at ease
in the deliberate conviction with
which he delivered his lines. The
character of Don Julian was excep-
tionally well portrayed in the act-
ing of Harold B. Lipsitz, '22, whose
interpretation of the part was close
to the professional.
The role of the leading female char-
acter, Teodora, was well executed by
Dorothy C. Dodds, '21, the emotional
quality of her voice being admirably,
suited to the spirit of herlpart. Jack
Holden, '22, as Pepito, with his air of
flippant bluyancy, lent to the pro-
duction its only hint of humor, while
M. Josephine Shaffer, '21, as Mer-
cedes the meddling gossip, portrayed
that obnoxious personality effec-

All Ready For
heshman Frolic
Everything is in readiness for the
Freshman Frolic which will be held
this evening from 9 until 2 o'clock in
the assembly hall of the Union. With,
the first strains from Phil Diamond's
jazz orchestra, the 1924 Frolic will bi
ushered in with approximately 225
couples in attendance. Many attrac-
tive features have been arranged for
the affair, among which is a clever
specialty dance. The programs are
attractive with a yellow and blue.
color scheme.
Two hundred and twenty-five roses
have been purchased by the commit-
tee to distribute to .the women. N
corsages will be worn on the danc
floor. Regular summer formal dress
will be worn by the men.
According to H. C. Curtis, '24, chair-
man of the freshman social commit-
tee, there are a few tickets that may
still be purchased' for the Frolic at

Athletic officials disclaimed any con-
nection 'with the charges of profes-
.sionalism 'against Julie Mee, star Il-
linois shortstop, who, under the name
of Daly, according to an article in the
Detroit Free Press yesterday morn-
ing and later stories in evening pa,
pers, wore a Tiger uniform ,last falL
Frank Navin, president of the Detroit
club, is reported to have admitted
that Mee and Daly were the same
person, although he denied that Mee
was or is under contract at the pres-
ent time, ,saying, however, that Mee
has promisedI to jin Detroit. He al-
so stated that Mee had not partici-,
pated in ay games, but did not state
whether he received any remunera-
tion for his services.
Bartelme Wires Lundgren
"Neither University nor any of its
representatives have had anything to
do with the charges regarding Mee
appearing in the Free Press this
moning. We ae raising no ques-
tion regarding Illinois players. No
objections to your publishing this
wire if you, wish to." . This is the of-
ficial stand taken. by P. G. Bartelme,
.Michigan athletic director, in a tele-
gram sent yesterday to Carl Lund-
gren, present Illinois baseball men-
.y investigation of Julie Mee will
consequently be made voluntarily by
the Illinois athletic'officials or at the
request of some other Conference
From what information that ha
come to light concerning Mee's al-
leged conduct during the summer with
Dtroit, it is highly doubtful if he can
be considered a professional or bar-
red from Conference play, for the
available information at present says
nothing about his being paid or about
his participation fn games.
May Not Bar Mee
Professionalism, playing under an
assumed name, or playing with an or-
ganized club might be charged against
him, but strict interpretation of
Conference rules would not eliminate
Mee, according to the present data.
The Conference ruling upon using
another name would bar only those
who participate in an intercollegiate
contest under an assumed name, and
as he didnot take part in any chain-

Mr. Ottaway. "The means by which

Greatest of Year,

(By M: ILH.P.)
At last the critical moment has ar-
rived. Although many devotees of
the national pastime have declared
that they thought the hour would
never approach, official word has
been received that the date for the
great game, the stellar event of the
year in baseball circles, has 'been defi-
nitely announced.
At 10 o'clock Saturday morning,
June 5, the long waited for event will
take place. Then the staffs of The
Michigan Daily and the gargoyle will
cross bats in their annual contest
to settle definitely and conclusively

Questions have been pouring in for
more than two months demanding to
know the date of the conflict. Enthu-
siastic rooters even from as far away
as Dexter, Saline, and Ypsilanti have
asked that seats be reserved for
them.. This alone is an indication or
how great the interest this game has

Although the fun-makers have a
slight advantage in their throwing
ability, due to their constant prac-

balanced by the versatility of The
