Final retouchings were made yes-
terday on the front curtain of "Top
o' th' Mornin'," se nery for which is
said to be better than for any pre-
vious Union opera. Unlike other
years, 'the curtain was designed and
painted by Carl Bromel, Union scenic
artist, himself in the workshop. Last
year the front curtain for "George
Did It" was obtained from New York.
An entirely new effect will be se-
cured in the manner of drawing the
blue satin curtain on which are
painted grotesque birds, when it will
part 'in the middle and be gathered
in straight lines on the sides. A spe-
cial mechanical track contrivance
which will operate overhead is the
means of acpomplishing the unusual

place at the end. Practical windows
higher than the fireplace will let in
the sunshine, as will the windows in
the alcove on the floor level. The
walls are done in greenish blue
above 'the tile base, which is four
feet high all around the room.
The outside scene in the garden of
the Patrick O'Dare estate; in the see-
oud act, will give a view of the
mountains, in the far distance, and
practical rocks, some of them 15 feet
high in the foreground. A tiny stream
will trickle through the rocks and in-
to the real fountain. Flowers and
grasses will grow about the pool and
on the mountainside. Characters
will come down through the moun-
tains and between the massive rocl
into the quiet garden of the scene.
A side view of O'Dare home will ap-
pear at the right of the stag'e.
A radical departure from the scen-
ery of last year is the continuity of
scenes in "Top o' th' Mornin'." Sev-
eral periods of time were represent-
ed in awmore, or less disjunctive fash-
ion in "George Did It," but the mu-
sical comedy plot this year dispos-
es of that difficulty. The settings
lend themselves well to lighting ef-
fects which are to be used exten-

Biggest Undertaking in the
of Annual Produc-
ONLY ONE AMERICAN ACT ON
PROGRAM; OTHERS FOREIGN
In a production which will be
strictly cosmopolitan because of the
number of nationalities represented,
only one American act is scheduled
for the "All Nations Fandanga" to be
given at 8 o'clock tonight in Hill aud-
itorium. The Cosmopolitan club, un-
der whose auspices the show will be
given, has organized it with the pur-
pose of making it educational as well
as entertaining. It is said to be the
largest undertaking since the club
originated its annual production.
The American act will be a co-
lonial dance in which 16 University
women, membershof Miss Marion
Woods' dancing class in Barbour
gymnasium, will attempt to bring out
the dignity and grace of the dance
of that period. Eight will imper-
sonate men, while the others will be
costumed as ladies. Four groups, of
two men and two women each, will
do the dancing, accompanied by pi-
ano, violin and voice. There will be
little difference in the stature of the
characters as they have been care-
fully selected for uniform height.
One of the oriental acts will be the
Japanese fan dance by Yiki Osawa,
grad., and Yone Moriya, '23, who will
appear in gowns of bright and gay
colors. The interpretation of youth
and spring is the aim of the act.
A variety .of special dancing, mu-
sic by t he Union orchestra, charac-
terization and musical acts, typical
of 12 nationalities, constitutes the
balance of the program. Tickets are
on sale for 50 cents at the book

Erin President in First Interview
Since Return from Here Says
U. S. Has Wrong Idea
ENGLAND PLAYING O WRONG
QUALITIES OF I ISH PEOPLE
(By Associated Press)
Dublin, March 16. -- Eamonn De
Valera, president of the Irish repub-
lic, has given a correspondent the
first interview he has accorded any
newspaper representative since his
return from the United States. Mr.
De Valera told of the impressions he
had brought back from America.
"The saddest thing there to me,"
he said, "was to see the Irish ques-
tion treated by so many people as if
it were a religious wrangle. It is not
a religious question, even insofar as
the differences between the north
and south are concerned.
"England," he said, "is trying to
win by playing on human weakness-
es. As a matter of fact, though it
does not realize it. England" is play-
ing' not on the weakness #but the
strongest qualities of the Irish peo-
ple - their spiritual ;qualities. The
young men of Ireland are saying to
themselves: 'At best the span of life'
is only 70 years. We must all die;
so why not now in circumstances like
HAAS URGES U.S.
AID FOR TURKEY
"We, as Americans, should be in-
terested in they problems of the Near
East for our own sakes," said Cyril
W. Haas, '04M, when speaking on
"Conquering Disease in the Near
East" in Lane hall last night. Dr.
Haas confined his lecture mainly to
a discussion of Asiatic Turkey and
gave an account of his experiences
in that district while there in the in-
terests of humanity.
"Medical men should tend towards
idealism rather than the mere class-
ification ' of diseases. They should
co-operate in doing for Turkey what
American doctors have already done
for Panama. American doctors and
nurses can save Turkey. The Turk
is not impossible. He may be lifted-1
and it is up to us to lift him," he
said. Dr. Haas terminated his lec-
ture by answering and discussing

Are Senior Members of
By the overwhelming vote of 2,102
to 72 the men of the University yester-
day voiced their approval of the stu-
dent self-government policy as work-
ed out in the Student Advisory com-
mittee plan. The vote was much heav-
ier than was expected by the Student
council committee in charge, and it"
compares well with the total number
of ballots usually cast in the All-cam-
pus election. Last year the total for
the All-campus election was 3,188.
Seniors elected to the new com-
mittee were: Robert Angell, '21,
(1,196) Robert Grindley, '21E,
(1,125); James McClintock, '21L,
(1,009) ; and Robert McKean, '1
The junior members of the advisory
board are: Douglas Dow, '22E, (774);
and Walter B Ilea, 422, (771).
"The result of the campus vote was
most satisfactory," said Clarence N.
Johnston, '21E, who was chairman of
the election committee. "We did not
expect such a heavy vote, and the
committee feels that the excellent
showing will do away with any facul-
ty opposition that might exist to the

PHASES OF SUBJECT BEFORE

was the subject with which C. M.
Jickling, '17, head of the direct ad-
vertising department of' the Evans-
Winter-Hebb company, of Detroit, ad-?
dressed the Commerce club last night
in Natural Science auditorium.
Emphasising throughout that ad-
vertising did not replace salesmen but'
was an important factor in the sell-
ing process, Jickling gave a short his-
tory of the subject and then proceeded
to give the functions 4f advertising,
which he defined as "the application
of the force of publicity to business."
Advertising Helps All
Jickling went on to show how ad-
vertising helped the producer, dealer,
and the consumer and said that he
did not think that historians gave
advertising the credit it deserved for
developing business in the 18th and
19th centuries. He saidthat it is es-
