'Mas ques To Give Annual Production
1For lienefit Of League On April 29






Be Used


"The Yellow Jacket,", an oriental
production in which the leading man
does not talk and which dazzles with
a magnificence of oriental costuming
and stage properties, purloined from
the, royal house of China, is to be
given in Hill auditorium on April 29
as Masques' annual play.
The Women's league and the- Col-
legiate alumnae have combined with
Masques to make the play on$ of the
important efforts for the benefit of the
Women's league fund. Mrs. Henry C.
Adams, who has been active in Wom-
en's league work, has placed her
priceless collection of Chinese cos-
tumes at Masque's disposal for use
in the play.
Mr. George Fong, of Detroit, has
also offered the cast any of his cos-
tumes that may be needed. Thousands
of dollars worth of cosutmes -will con-
sequently be used in the play.
Regarding the play, Prof. J. Raleigh
Nelson, the director, says, "The Yellow
Jacket is perhaps one of the most un-
usual plays of recent years. It is a
Chinese production presented accord-
ing to the traditions of the Chinese
The stage settings, designed by Pro-
fessor Nelson, are to be executed by
0. B. Davis, of Detroit, who construct-
ed the sets used in the recent Junior
Girls' play. -
In addition to the spectacular ap-
peal obtained in the production, the

latest collection of plays by chief
American dramatists. It has had re-
vival after revival on the profession-
al stage. Within the pgst month New
York has seen an elaborate produc-
tion that has met with ,instant suc-.
The cast for "The Yellow Jacket" is
a large one, including several of the
leading characters of last year's per-
formance of "The Importance of Be-
ing Earnest." Tickets will go on sale
immediately after vacation. A limit-
ed number of reserved seats will be
sold at $1 a piece. The rest of Hill
auditorium will be sold at 50 cents.
Every woman on the campus and
every member of the Collegiate alum-
nae are also being asked to be respon-
sible for the sale of two tickets.

Cyrena VanGordin, the distinguish-!
ed American contralto, whose career
with the Chicago Opera association
during the past two seasons has plac-
ed her among the foremost operatic
stars of today, will sing the part of
Venus at the Saturday evening per-
formance of the May Festival when
Wagner's monumental work "Tan-
hauser" will be offered in English.
Miss VanGordon has been acclaim-
ed many times during the present
season for heir excellent interpreta-
tion of this particular role, not only
in Chicago but on the recent tour of
the Chicago Opera association which
took the organization east to New
York and to the Pacific coast.
She will take the place in the fes-
tival of Margarete Matzenauer, whose
request for a release from her con-
tract has been accepted by the local
managpment. Madame Matzenauer
write that the date comes on the an-
niversary of her mother's death a year
ago and that it would be very trying
for her to attempt to sing this partic-
ular role on that occasion.

asked by the commitee . to do so at

Garments of every description are
needed badly for students suffering in
Europe,.in addition to shoes and other
wearing apparel, the only requirement
being that they be clean. It is point-
ed out by, the committee, of which
Julius P. Glasgow, '23, is chairman,
that right now preparatory to leaving

time to pick out -all the clothes ,that
might otherwise be discarded or sold
for a slight sum.
The collecting, preparing, and ship-
ping of the clothes will be taken care
of entirely by the S. C. A., in order
to eliminate as much trouble on the
part of the donor as possible. They
will be sent to .parts of Central Eu-

Former Commander Touches on Three
Main Points in Talk


."The trouble with the bulk of ourj
new poetry is that there is no mad-1
ness in it, it is too nice," declared Carl
Sandburg yesterday afternoon in his
address on "Is There a New Poetry."
Mr. Sandburg said that while there
was no new poetry from a standpoint
of style and form yet something new
in the fabric and structural material
of poetry was being experimented
with by a group of artists. Mr. Sand-
burg attributed these changes to the
contact of culture between regions.
where there was previously no con-
After a short talk the poet read,
some of his poems. In a decidedly
musical, voice, with a sort of serious-
ness and deliberateness he made the
strange words of "Early Moon," "Cool
Tombs," "Laughing Corn" and a doz-
en or so others even more powerful
than they seem when one reads them.
Sandburg also read some of his latest
poems which are to appear in book
form some time in May.
Atpcompanying himself on his guitar
the poet sang several American folk
songs, many of which are unpublish-

"Reminiscences of my recent trip in
Europe," the situation of the bonus
bill, and a few views/ on the Arms
conference were the important points
of the address delivered by Maj. John'
G. Emery, former American Legion
head, last night at the Union, under
the auspices of the local American
legion unit.
"The outstanding thing of my trip
.was the high enthusiasm which the
French showed toward us, and I bd
lieve that our party was the f8ist
group, except a military prganiza-
tion, that ever passed through 'The
Arch of Triumph' in France," said
Major Emery.
"I believe that the fourfold Bonus
bill as passed by the house and which
is now in the senate will very prob-
ably be passed, and signed," he said.
The bill allows $1.25 a day for service
overseas, and $1 a day for service
here. f

-Plans for the regulation of future
J-Hops were included in the report
from this year's function which was
accepted by the Student council at its
meeting held last night at the Union.
These plans were carried over from
the last meeting when they were laid
on the table for the consideration of
all the members. ,
The report as submitted by R. F.
Wieneke, '22, chairman of the com-
mittee to regulate the distribution of
tickets to the Hop, stated 'that tickets
should be given out as they were this
year, and other regulations also re-
main the same. In regulating the
succession of classes who shall con-i
trol the function, the law and medic
classes will have charge only every
20 years. The laws will control the
function next year.
It was voted to grant the Salva-
tion Army permission to carry on a
drive among the students for a newa
home to be built in Ann Arbor. Sev-
eral suggestions were made as to the
method to be used but no one, was
definitely accepted. It was voted to

R. E. Adams, '23, was appointed to
succeed Hugh E. Wilson, '22, on the

forced to resign from this committee
due to the pressure of other work.
Cane day was discussed and it was
decided to set an official time for
seniors to appear with their, tnes
immediately after vacation. It is de-
sired by the council that seniors do
not carry canes until the date set.

cess. The best of these stories will

ning story will be published in the
last issue of Chimes, the May number.
The stories received vary in length
and style. The greater share of them
are very well written and have unus-
ua; plots. Many have their setting in
Ann Arbor and one story, written by
a prodigy nine years of age is said of
rival "The Young Visitors" as the pro-
duct of a youthful mind.-

Sixteen Wolverine diamond men
headedby Coach Fisher and Capt
Ernie Vick embark onrthe first lap'
of their annual southern training trip
tomorrow afternoon for Lexington,
Ky., where Michigan meets the Uni-
versity of Kentucky nine in the open-
ing engagement of the year Saturday
Among the 16 baseball men picked
by the Varsity mentor td make the
trip' are: six pitchers, Dixon, Liver-
ance, Schultz, Mudd, Sjryker, and El-
liott; two catchers, Captain Vick and
Blott; four infielders, Knode, Wim-
bles, Uteritz, and Paper; three -out-
fielders, Shackleford, Roby and Klein,
and one utility man, Kipke.
Coach Fisher announced his s~lec-
tions for the southern Jaunt after the
conclusion of a nine inning practice
game yesterday afternoon between the
first and second Varsity nines. Mich-
igan's staff of six hurlers and two
catchers is one of the largest rosters
of battery men that' will be taken
South this year by any university
nine. The Wolverrnes' southern sched-
ule calls. for nine'- games in 10 days
and amongrthe opposing teams are
numbered the strongest college nines
below the Mason-Dixon line.-
Dixon,.Liverance, Schultz and Mudd
are not newcomers on the Varsity
for these nien were members of the
nine last year. Stryker and Elliott
are the new members of the hurling
staff., Both of these recruits have giv-
en excellent accounts of themselves
in the few practice games that have
been played on the -Ferry field dia-
mond this year. Elliott in particular
possesses great "possibilities. Elliott
has a good smoke ball and a, nice as-
sortment of curves but is a bit shy of
control, a fault he is gradually over-
coming under the tutelage of Coach
Fisher. Styrker also has a good as-
sortment of 4foolers and should give a
creditable account of himself in the
southern performance.
All of the veteran moundmen, Dix-
on, Liverance,. Schultz and Mudd,
show a vast improvement over last
year's form and if early season indi-
cations may be taken as a criterion
the Wolverine pitching staff should be
much stronger this spring than the
one last season which carried Michi-
gan to within one-half a game of the
