OLL[EEWOMEN'S
OTE TOBE SMALL
rvey of Feeling on Campus Index
to Sentiment Throughout
Country.
(By Mary D. Lane)
[ow that "Votes for Women" is a
an of the 'past and a fact of the
sent, the outstanding question of
erest is: "Will the women vote?
1 they exercise their hard-wop priv-
e or will they fulfill the predic-
us of their cynical opponents who
imed indifference as the chief argu-
nt against equal suffrage?"
survey of campus conditions may
ve an index to the feeling general-
prevalent among women of the
ntry. Representative women of the
iversity expressed themselves as
btful that the vote among Univer-
r women will be large. Reasons for
s are several and not wholly dis-
dtiable to the women.
Formalities Interfere
n the first place, technicalities will
vent many from voting. This ap-

plies to men as well as to women. Re-
registration is required in all cities of
Michigan over 10,000, and in many
other states a similar requirement is
made. The student who escapes re-
registration must apply to his own city
clerks for an absent voter's ballot.
This must be filled out and sent home.
These formalities, however, would
not prove a great restriction if the
voters were vitally interested in the
outcome of the election. But there is
no "call to arms." Indifference is gen-
eral-due not 'to lack of interest in
the welfare of the country but to fail-
ure in the candidates to call forth any
general expression of opinion, favor-
able or otherwise.
"That women are not indifferent to
matters of public interest seems to be
shown conclusively by the increased
enrollment in. such courses as Ameri-
can government, world politics, and
municipal government.
"Since 1917 the enrollment of women
in political science courses has in-
creased enormously," said Dr. R. T.
Crane of the Political Science depart-
ment. "This increase may be partly
attributed to the war and its stimulat-
ing effects, but interest in questions of
Icitizenship is undoubtedly a large
factor."

'Her Family Tree'9
Work of Michigan
A uthor, P)usician
Al Weeks, '10, and Seymour Simons,,
'17E, Collaborate in Production
of Successful Comledy
(By Edwin R Meiss)
To students and alumni of the Uni-!
versity of Michigan especially, the tre-
mendous success which is greeting
Nora Bayes' new show, "Her Family
Tree," will be of lively interest. The
production which is starting its second
week in Detroit today at the Garrick
theatre, was written entirely by for-

mer Michigan men, the book by Al
Weeks, '10, and the music and lyrics
by Seymour Simons, '17E.
Both these men were active on the
campus of Ann Arbor, Simons having
written numerous numbers for Union
Operas, while Al Weeks was editor of
the Gargoyle for a year.
Use Ouija Board
Nora Bayes, of course, is the star of
the play, the opening scene of which
represents a house party being given
in her own home. To while away the
time the guests decide to consult a
Ouija board and be carried back into
the 'p st.
This, gives an opportunity for pre-
senting many rich scenes and gorgeous
costumes of various stages of the past,
and- the rendering of some very at-

tractive musical numbers among which
the best are "Ouija Board," "No Other
Girl," "As You Sow So Shall You
Reap," and "When Cupid Flies Away."
"Her Family Tree" has already
broken the house record for advance
sale in seats and promises to leave the
Garrick next week bearing with it a
new attendance record for the engage-
ment it has run.
"Aphrodite" in Detroit
There are very few of us who have
not heard of the dramatic spectacle
"Aphrodite" which played at the Cen-
tury theatre in New York all last win-
ter. This tremendous production is
now touring the west and appears this
week at the Schubert-Detroit Operah
House.
"Aphrodite" is a staging on a colos-

sal scale of the glories of ancient
Egypt, employing three hundred peo-
ple and requiring a special train of
eleven baggage cars for its transporta-
tion. The play is based on a novel by
Pierre Louys who wrote the book
twenty-five years ago.
"MEET ME AT THE FOUNTAIN"
Coffee, sandwiches, pies, light
lunches of all kinds. Right prices.
Sodas, sundaes, Coca Cola; all soft
drinks. Kept right. It's a B. & B.
