Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Apropos of the editorial appearing
in this morning's issue of your
paper relative to making the ceremon-
les attending Cap Night a week end
affair, will you give space to the writ-
ten wish of an interested alumna that
Cap Night be set so as to not to conflict
with our May Festival? Last year, my
husband and I deliberately missed the
first half of the Friday evening con-
cert, which is the star evening of the
May Festival series, and the last half
of the Cap Night ceremonies due to
this conflict in time. This year there
is no question about what it is we will
miss, if there is still the conifict, be-
cause we are parents of a freshman.
But we would like also to hear the
beautiful Friday evening concert.

Traces Situation from War Period,
Giving History of Lloyd
George Ministry
On the whole, the party situation in
England is more confused than it has
been at any time since the origin of
the cabinet system, according to Prof.
J. R. Hayden, of the political science
Soon after the beginning of the war
a coalition* government composed of
Liberals and Conservatives was or-
ganized. This government continued
in power until 1916, when Mr. Asquith
was succeeded by Mr. Lloyd George
as prime minister. With the retire-
ment of Mr. Asquith,'-a group of Lib-
erals broke away from the coalition
and became known as the Free Liber-
als, or Independents. The coalition
continued and included the Conserva-
tives, the Coalition Liberals, and the
Labor party.
Conservatives Retain Seats
] ' 1918 a general election was
held. The Conservatives and Mr. Lloyd
George, backed by a small group of
Coalition Liberals, remained in the
Coalition. They were opposed by the
Labor party and the Free Liberals.
The Coalition leaders simply gave the
seats in parliament from certain dis-
tricts of the Conservatives and oth-
ers to the Coalition Liberals. 5fi-t
tricts that had traditionally returned
Liberal mem'bers returned Conserva-
tive members of Parliament and this
led to some dissatisfaction among the
Liberals. The seats in parliament
were apportioned so as to give the
greatest strength to the Lloyd George
government. The Coalition was vic-
torious, but the Conservatives who

were not Mr. Lloyd George's party,
were given a majority of the seats in
the house of commons.
The Conservatives ,tended to split
into two factions, the reactionary or
"Die-Hard" element, and the progres-
sive element. This split in party;
ranks was widened as the negotiations
of the Lloyd George government on
the Irish question were continued. The
next largest factions in the house
were the Labor party, and the Free
Liberal party, the # latter being Mr.
Asquith's group. A prime minister was
in ofiae. whto did not' receive his
chief support from his own party.
The Coalition Liberals and-the Con-
servatives had been able to agree on
the war policy, but their notions as
to the peace-time policy of the' gov-
ernment were different. Many meas-
ures were adopted which were com-
promises,, and which were not in the
best interests of the nation.-
Younger Intervenes
While the prime minister was at
the Cannes conference, Sir George
Younger, who was the Coalitionist
Conservative Whip, head of the cen-
tral office of the Coalition party, and
a party leader who was subordinate
to Mr. Austen Chamberlain, announc-
ed that he considered it time for a
general election. Such an announce-
ment would have ordinarily come from
Mr. Lloyd George as Premier, or, by
agreement, from Mr. Austen Cham-
berlain, as leader of the -Conservative
party. If the general election were
held, it would mean that , Mr. Lloyd
George would resign as prime minis-
Sir George' Younger was the leader
of the "Die-HIards" who were far from
satisfied over the solution of the
Irish difficulties. It was not his place

Chooses "Real Estate Opportunities"1
as Subject of Address
Judson Bradway, '04, will speak at
3 o'clock this afternoon in the assem-
bly hall of the Union on "Real Estate
Opportunities." In line with the ob-
ject of the regular Sunday afternoon
meetings, his talk will present the ad-
vantages of his particular vocation.
Mr. Brad'way spent but two years
in college, leaving at the end of that
time to accept a position in Detroit.
It was later in the same year that he
became identified with the real estate
business, spending three years in con-
nection with the Shipman Real Es-
tate Exchange. At that time Detroit
had a population of only 350,000 and
the business activities of this firm cov-
ered the city.
Being firmly convinced of Detroit's
future, he then organized a firm of his
own under the name of Judson Brad-
way Incorporated. Mr. Bradway has
been closely connected with the mote-
ment to widen North Woodward ave-
nue. He has also specialized to quite'
an extent on real estate appraising,
especially since the income tax laws
have been in force which require ex-
pert judgment of real estate value.
O. W. Rush, '22, member of the
Union Sunday afternoon meetingsl

Woodbridge N. Ferris, former gov-
erinor of the state of Michigan, was
entertained at a banquet at, 6:30.
o'clock last night ain the parlors of
the Congregational church by the Fer-
ris Institute club of the University of
Mr. Ferris was the founder of the
Ferris institute at Big Rapids, and
with but a short period during his
governorship, has been active presi-
dent of the school ever since. He
started as a farm lad, and through
dint of hard work and stinting of the
pleasures of life managed to put him-
self through the two year Medical
school of the University of Michigan
in 1873-74.
When He Was a Student,
"I was a student in Ann Arbor back'
in '72 and '73," declared Mr. Ferris
yesterday afternoon. "I was in the
University when University hall was
dedicated. It was a great event and;
Michigan was then a great school.
But since then University hall has de-
generated into nothing short of a fire-
trap. I said a couple of years ago
when in Ann Arbor on a visit that
the old building should be replaced.
"And so I was mighty pleased when
I heard of Michigan's new building
program. Not only for the sake of the
state but for the great University of
Michigan itself, do I think that this
wonderful institution should expand.
from its present cramped quarters and
soar out."
Prof. Prayer Makes Talk.
Following the banquet, were several
addresses from different people con-
nected with the Ferris school and by
Prof. W. A. Frayer, of the history de-
partment, who spoke on the subject
of "Obligations of the Educated." The
program came to a close with an In-,
formal talk by Mr. Ferris in which he
brought out the undermining influence
on the world today of moral skepti-
cism. He attributed the great war,
the partial unsucces sof the Arms
Conference at Washington, and all late
matters of diplomacy to this degrad-
ing and increasing prevalence of mor-,
al skepticism.
In closing, Mr. Ferris said, "Great-
er than the subjects taught to you
people in your class rooms . are the
personal contacts that you make on
your campus. The biggest thing of
University life is the association with
all sorts and types of men* and wom-

Mimes' second vaudeville bill 'was
well received last night by a large au-
dience in the Mimes theater. Tme per-
formance of Burton Hyde who played
a varied set of classical and ragtime
numbers onhis giant marimbaphone
drew repeated rounds of applause.
His version of."Song of India" proved
to be one of the most popular musical
hits on the #program.
The singing and impersonation num-
bers were also well presented, the ac-
tors showing a considerable improve-
ment in stage presence foom the last

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
In answer to the communication
published in The Daily yesterday
morning, the Prom committee wishes
to tell a few of the reasons- why the
Sophomore Prom is to be given in the
Union ballroom instead of the gymnas-
ium, and explain tie error of the wri't-
er in yesterday's Daily, in regard to
the distribution of tickets. The com-
mittee makes this explanation in the
hope that it will reduce the discon-
tent among those who, for various rea-'
sons, did not get tickets for the Prom
and who have subsequently found fault
with those who are inanaging the ar-
In the first place, the committee,
had no way of anticipating the large
number of applications for tickets to
the Prom-a number far in excess of
any previous year-and that, had this
number been knowi, it still would
have been impossible to consider giv-
ing the party in the g-mnasium.
Consider the fact that the -Hop _this
winter cost, approximately $6,000, that
nearly $2,000 was spent for decora-
tions alone, and to cover this expense
720 tickets were sold, exclusive of all
complimentary passes. From this it
is clear that had all the""applcants
for tickets been allowed their peti-
tions, the consequont income would
have, been insufficient for a party in

the gymnasium.
Second, the gymnasium is without
fgcilities for ser ing dinner and that,
if the party were given in the gymnas-
ium, this feature of the Prom would
be impossible.
"Why not,"'asks the writer of Sat-
urday's communication, "follow that
method used by the class of '23 . . .
As a matter of fact, the class of '23
discarded the method they used for
their Prom, in distributing the tickets
for their J-Hop this year. And it is
the same method they used for their
