Unusual Staging, True Comedy,
Vie For Union Opera Honors

1/ 1

(By Joseph A. Bernstein).
We came, we saw, and we


conquered! We came, we saw, and
we blushed. The only thing that kept
us from falling in love was the fact
that Jack Frost was a man.
It all happened when the pretty
"Irish Coleens" tripped lightly onto
the stage last night at the Whitney
and performed one of the most
charming little dances that ever add-
ed attraction to the annual produc-
tion of the Mimes of the Michigan
The Opera, second night, went over
bigger than they said it did the first
night. The male woinen, "Hot Dog"
(as Lead Comadian Rosenthal would
say), enthralled us, and being privi-
leged, we could not resist the tempta-
tion of .visiting the forbidden area -
back of the scenes. (We sought proof,
and almost found it.)
The only thing wrong with the
whole party was that the chorus girls
were men - so our date with Jack
Frost wasn't.
i'ow, to comeout of our rapture,
Jack Frost was one of the colleens.
After Frost had finally convinced us
that it was "he" and not "she", we
proceeded to tour the dressing rooms.
Kemp Keena, the leading male, was
found hidden in the Star's parlor gaz-
ing intently into a mirror adjusting
the make-up on his lips, while Hil-
Bard Rosenthal, in the same room,
was like Bert Williams as he climbed
into his green costume for the seond
In the narrow corridors familiar
voices greeted us, but painted faces
and frilly dresses denied us the
right to recognize those who spoke.
If it hadn't been for the cuss words,
we'd have 'been sure the males were
For, This Yer
No attempt to raise the $38,000 nec-
essary for the completion of the Union
swimming pool will be made during
the present school year, according to
an anpouncement made yesterday aft-
ernoon by Union officials.
Coach Elmer C. Drulard of the
swimming team and Paul Eaton, '21,
president of the Union, have been
sounding out the alumni on the propo-
sition and they are convinced that it
would be almost impossible to put
across a successful drive .at this
time. Drulard interviewed .mDetroit
alumni last Saturday and Eaton spent
Tuesday in Port Huron, and the'
alumni they balked with advised
against running a campaign until
h9tiness' conditions are better.
Yesterday afternoon a meeting was
held of men interested in the finish-
ing of the pool and the difficulties
were explained to them. The tentative
plans call for a final effort to raise
the money some time next year when.
it is thought, business conditions will
warrant such action.

(By Lee M. Woodruff)
Conceived in brilliant green and
dedicated to the proposition'that all
the world loves the fair colleen even
when her red, red beard shows
through, "Top o' th' Mornin'", Michi-
gan's fifteenth annual and first Hiber-
nian opera, again had its audience
with it from curtain to curtain in the
second performance Wednesday night
at the Whitney.
Acting and music are up to opera
standards of.recent years, and scen-
ery and costumes - mostly green but
with a bi't of orange to make it im-
partial - can compare favorably even
with "George Did It's" elaborate pro-
duction. But the features which set
the 1921 Opera apart and above the
efforts of the past are its comedy,
which is a revelation because for once
its basis is witty lines rather 'than
awkward steps and still more awk-I
ward situations, and its remarkably
novel and well executed trick dances.
Hilliard Rosenthal, '21, as Miltiades
Fitzgerald, negro servant, is the king
of the Opera's excellent comedy
troupe. From the first roar of mirth
which gieets his "cork" joke until the
final chuckle when he waves aloft the
empty bag from which Paris Green has,
