Dates for ,Major Events of Gradua
tion Week Announced by
W. B. Rea, '22
Committee chairmen of the senior
literary class went on record yester-
day in favor of holding the Con-
mencement exercises on Ferry field
this year, or if this plan is found im-
practicable, for the exercises in Hill
auditorium to be open only to the rel-
atives of. seniors. The latter ar-
rangement would exclude faculty
members and alumni.
Offers Best Solution
It was the opinon of the commit-
teemen "that, whileAholding the exer-
cises on Ferry field might possibly de-
tract somewhat from the impressive-
ness o the occasion, it would be bet-
ter to have the ceremony where all
relatives of seniors could attend. If
the exercises are to be held in Hill
auditorium again, the, committeemen
believe' no tickets should be reserved
for others until all the relatives of
seniors have been provided for.
Announcement of dates for the sen-
for literary festiviies of Commence-
met week was made by Walter B.
Rea, president of the class.
The senior literary banquet will be
held at 12:15 o'clock, Thursday, June
15, in the Uni5n and the senior re-
ception and' ball, which is to be for-
mal, will be held at 9 o'clock the same
evening in the Union.
Alumni registration will start at 8
o'clocl- Friday, June 16, in Alumni
[emorial hall. The senior literary
class rday exercises will be held on
the campus at 10 o'clock that morn-
ing. At 2:30 o'clock that afternoon
th Varsity baseball team will play
the alumni baseball team on Ferry
field, and at 8:30 o'clock in the eve-
ning a student entertainment will be
given in Hill auditorium.
Alumni to Meet
The annual aluni meeting will be
held at 10 o'clock Saturday morning,
June 17, in Hill; auditorium, after
which will be the 'alumni luncheon
at 12:15 o'clock in Barbour gymna-
sium.,, At 1:30 o'clock there will be

torium, and a baseball game at 4
o'clock. The Varsity band will give

o'clock that evening, and at 8:30

Senate Committee's Aetion Said
Be Due to Influence of
One Member


Public 'performance of the Junior
Girls' play, "Scepter and Serenade,"
was refused by the Senate Committee
on Student Affairs, according to. re-
ports received yesterday. The com-
mittee was petitioned by almost the
entire cast, after the final perform-
ance, for permission to give a public
performance of the play for the bene-
fit of the University of Michigan Lea-
gue campaign 'fund. Rumors are cur-
rent to the effect that the unfavorable,
action of the committee is largely
traceable to one member, whois said
to have forced thee decision through
Sentiment on the campus for sone
weeks back has been strong for a
presentation of the play which men
mght attend. Opinions expressed.
seemed agreed ,that the first night
should be resrved for junior and sen-
ior girls, which would be sufficient to
maintain the tradition, but that there-
after the play should be thrown open
to men and women alike.
The Junior Girls' play originated as
a "stunt night," an amateurish af-
fair, given by the junior girls for the
seniors, and with attendance restrict-
ed to these few. Since then it has
grown to such proportions that three
performances are given of a very elab-
orate production, planned, according
to Prof. John L. Brumm, director of
the play; for public presentation.
After the three performances in Ann.
Arbor, to which only women are ad-
mitted, a general performance 4ras
been given in Detroit, thus nullifying
the old-time exclusiveness of the af-
fair. The consensus of opinion of
those interviewed seems Lo be that the
time' has come to give at least one
general performance in Ann Arbor..
Not a few prominent men and wom-
en on the campus, among them high'
University officials, have expressed
their hearty approbation of the idea
when interviewed on the subject, and
considerable disappointment has been
evinced by them since the action of
the Senate committee.
L r Creation ",Sung
:ay Large Chorus,
A pears Tonight

(By Delbert Clark)
From the majestic progression of
Laudes Atque Carmina" to the rous-
ing strains of "The Victors," the
spring concert of the Varsity Glee and
Mandolin clubs last night in Hill aud-
itorium was a complete success. Not a
single weak number marred the pro-
gram, and it was thickly sprinkled
with,gloriously good ones. The care-
ful, intelligent training ,of the direct-
or, Frank L. Thomas, was much in
evidence throughout, especially in the
ensemble numbers.
Notable among the Glee club offer-
ings were The Soldiers' Chorus from
Gounod's "Faust," Beethoven's "The
Heavens Are Declaring," and "The
Song of. the Vikings," by Fanning.
"Ole Uncle Moon" and "The Old
Songs" were given as encores to an
insistent audience
It is almost unfair to say that any
one of the numbers was better than
another. The Mandolin club with its
two offerings did exceedingly well,
without any evidences of nervousness
or lack of preparation. Robert R.
Dieterle, '23M, succeeded as always in
making a strong appeal to his audi-
ence. Thee. ever popular Hawaiians,
is ,

Tang and Tavares, took the crowd by
storm, as did the banjo quintet, the
Varsity quartet, and the Midnight
Sons' quartet. Potter, witlh his Ha-
waiian guitar voice, was much in evi-
dence in the latter, "
It is pleasingly evident that the
Glee club has made a sensational
comeback, and has retaken its place
high among Varsity attractions by
sheer force of merit, based on careful
leadership and training.
