Probation Rumor
Rumor has been current on the
campus that the Sigma Alpha Epsilon
fraternity has been taken from proba-
tion. This rumor is entirely false, ac-
cording to J. A. Bursley, Dean of Stu-
dents, who in his capacity as chairman
of the senate committee on student af-
fairs stated that no action in this mat-
er would be aken except on the rec-
ommendation of the student advisory
Influential alumni of the fraternity,
including Judge Arthur Tuttle and
Judge Clyde Webster, both of Detroit,
met in the Dean of Students's office
with the senate committee on students
affairs and one representative of the
student advisory committee Saturday.
They protested against the action of
the University in placing the S. A. E.
fraternity and its individual members
on probation for alleged misconduct
at the house party held for the frater-
nity's guests at the J-Hop. However
no definite action as to raising the
house and its individual members from
probation was taken at this meeting.

Union Orchestra Will Present Badger
Picture, "Not Responsible," in
Hill ,Auditorium

Student acting, directing and film-
ing make the University of Wisconsin
six-reel movie, "Not Responsible,"
which will be shown at 8 o'clock
tonight in Hill auditorium under the
auspices of the Union orchestra, the
world's first student photo play.
Scenes Laid on Campis
Michigan students will have an op-
portunity to see a college movie be-
fore entering) the production -of the
one which The Daily is going to back
here' this spring. Scenes in "Not Re-
sponsible" were laid on the Wiscon-
sin campus, which in many cases was
camouflaged greatly to represent the
art of the ages.
Wisconsin students did all the work'
.in connection with the movie, which
was produced under the auspices of
the Edwin Booth Dramatic society aty
Madison. The picture portrays the
romantic side of college life and stars
three university women who were se-
lected from 2,100 applicants for their
beauty and ability.,. In the story the
players travel throuigh the &. 'ne Age,
Egyptian Age, and Venetian Age, in-
terpreting the evolution of education
down to the present stage.
Shows Solomon's Court
Sphinxes, waving palms, lotus flow-
ers and all the costumes of the periods
are reproduced true to life. The
Queen of Sheba, in her oriental splen-
dor is played by Julia Hanks, a capa-
ble dancer. Among the most striking
scenes of the picture is that of King
Solomon's court.
Two acts; of vaudeville and a two-
reel Harold Lloyd comedy are also in-
cluded in the program. Tickets are
on sale at the desk in the Union
lobby for 50 cents, or they may be ob-
tained tonight at Hill auditorium.
Beginning this morning at 9 o'clock
and ending promptly at 4 o'clock
Thursday afternoon, 16 sorority teams
will vie with each other in.selling the
1922 Michiganensian. The team turn-
ing in the highest number, of orders
will be awarded a piece of furniture.'
Teams may ascertain the time when,
they are to be on duty by consulting
the schedule posted on the/ bulletin
board in the business office of t..t
"The orders\ absolutely must go to
the printer Friday," said Robert "F.
Wieneke, '22, business manager, "con-
sequently, no orders will be taken af-
ter the campaign ends Thursday."
Wieneke pointed out further that no
extra copies would be printed due to
the prohibitive cost. The price is $6.00
cash, or $9.50 down and $2.50 on re-
ceipt of the book.

Likely to Adopt New Ideas to Make
Planks Fairer for All Can-
Further changes for making the
new election plans more perfect will
probably be discussed at the meeting
of the Student council tomorrow night.
at the Union. The plans for registra-
tion -and voting are considered com-
plete as they now stand, but action'
will probably be taken regarding a
general political meeting preceding
election where all candidates can pre-
sent their policies to the campus at
large. This would do away with the
charge that unknown candidates have
no chance to be elected.
Plan Convocation
Plans for regular University con-
vocations to take place at regular
times are also likely tobetdiscussed
although the necessary data to make
a final decision on this matter is not
yet completed. According to the ten-
tative plans, the whole University
would meet at a certain definite time
at regular periods When the students
could be addressed by the president
and by other important men whom he
could invite to be present as guests
of the University. These plans, ii
completed, would tend to keep the st-i
dent body in more direct, touch wi
the work of the faculty and the Uni-
versity in general.
May Have "M" Day
A definite date for "letter day" is
likely to be set at this meeting as all
the arrangements are now complet-
ed. Such action will encourage the
"M" men tQ wear their letters at all
times on the campus. The council is
now meeting every other Wednesday
Freshman Laws will hold a smoker
at 7:30 o'clock tonight in the reading
room at the Union. Prof. R. W. Aig-
ler of the law department, will make
the faculty address. There will be-
music and stunts and refreshments
will be served.

D.K.EL. uys New
Home On Geddes
Delta Kappa Epsilon, for more than
50 years located on State street, has
purchased the estate of George W.
Millen on Geddes Heights.
The property purchased includes the
residence and the north half of the
grounds., The entire estate includes
all of the land back to Hill street, and
a year and a half' option has been
granted on all of it. This gives the
fraternity all of the land between
Geddes Heights and Hill street, four
acres in all.
The house is ideal for a fraternity
house and little changing will have to
be done. The fraternity will take
possession on Aug. 1,
Choice of the Millen home for a
fraternity site was made by Delta
Kappa Epsilon after it had been un-
derstood that the University wanted
the property on which their house is
now located. The fraternity had orig-
inally planned to build another house
on the same property on, State street.

wand Pleasing
Innovation A t
Sunday Concert
(By Sidney B. Coats)
There 'is something about the rich
mellow tones of band instruments that
penetrates everywhere in a large aud-
itorium, and at times sends little chills
pulsating through the body. Such ef-
fects the Varsity band accomplished
in a consistently pleasing program
Sunday afternoon in Hill auditorium.
Wins Audience
The audience was won by the first
number, the overture, "Oil the Neva"
by Caniviz, which was .full of har-
monic color and which brought out
the band's progress in 'the concert
field. This was followed by Schu-
bert's "Marche Militaire," a number
performed by the orchestra at the last
Faculty concert., The work adapts
itself better to the orc'hestra than to
the band, as the march element seems
subordinated ,to that of thematic de-
It was in Jewell's ,"A Passing Fan-
cy," however, that the best tonal work
displayed itself. From the standpoint
of quality it was near the top of the
list, and from that of -appeal, suffi-
evient to provoke more 'than one vo-
cal accompanist in the audience.
Play Gms from Operas
$amecniks march, "The Co-Ed" was
the most stirring of the numbers play-
ed, with the exqeption of, "The Vic-
tors" at the end of the program. The
march calls forth visions of marching
soldiers and makes one come to the
conclusion that the name is purely
honorary. Gems from the operas, ar-
ranged by Missud, was another num-
her extremely popular with the Sun-
day audience.,. The melodies from,
Gounod's "Faust," Verdi's "Aida" and
Bizet's "Carmen" always prove suc
Masque* bomen's dramatic socie-
ty, will pres' "The Yellow Jacket"
as their ann spring play this year
to be given at Hill auditorium on April
49. The play is a Chinese novelty
written by George C. Hazelton and
It. will be carried out in the setting
of an old Chinese theater, and will
include a gorgeous variety of Chinese
costumes and stage properties. The
play is to be produced under the au-
spices of the Collegiate alumnae and
the Women's League, and proceeds
will go toward the new Women's
Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson, who is di-
recting the broduction, will also de-
sign the settings which will be execut-
ed by O. 5. Davis, of Detroit, who com-
pleted settings for "Pygmalion." The
staging will recall the spectacular ef-
fects of "The Magic Carpet," written
by Professor Nelson and produced in
Hill auditorium several years ago.

A shrill blast of the whistle, a
mighty cheer of victory, the joyous
strains of "The Victors"--and the bas-
ketball season had ended for Michi-
.gan. It was a glorious season, too,
and the decisive defeat of Northwest-
ern last night proved beyond any
doubt that it was successful from ev-
ery point of view. True, the Varsity
won no championship honors this
year, but it has accomplished a feat as
great, if not greater, in climbing from
almost the lowest rung of the Big Ten
ladder to a position second only to
Purdue, the undisputed leader of the
It was an uphill fight for the' Wol-
verines, a struggle won only by sheer
determination on the part of every-
man on the team. Early losses served
only to spur them on, and instead of
being a repelling yoke, defeat in the"
beginning meant greater Impetus for
victory in the end. Six consecutive
victories is a record of which Mich-
igan may well be proud, for with the
difficult opposition offered by the other
Conference teams every contest was

a battle, every lplay highly important,
and every opponent a dangerous foe.
But in every game in which the Var-
sity played, whether on its own or a
foreign court, there was always a
sixth player-the spirit of Michigan.
It was with-the team at all times, it
cheered when Michigan was- on the
lower 'end of the score, it rejoiced
when Michigan was in the van, and .it:
helped score the deciding point when
a point was necessary to victory. The
score book shows no record of. this'
sixth player, but in the great book
where the history of Michigan is writ-
ten, the part which he has performed
will be given equal credit with every
other Wolverine who has Darticipated
in the loyal defense of ihe University's
noble athleic traditions.
To Coac Mather and to the men of
the Varsiy, Michigan gives 'thanks.
The Victors' laurels are not for them,
but gre'ter even than, laurels is tie
satisfaction of having overcome do-
feat and meeting success face to face.
Such a satisfaction even champions
sometimes envy,
