Today---- Mother



Wolverines Illini Runners Take All Events, Tie
arly Mark Set for

Mother's Day is a mark of appreciation for the woman who kept us in
clean pinafores at the age of four, soothed our black eyes at the age of eight
and rebuilt our trodden souls at the age of sixteen.
Now at the age of twenty it is agreed that we should reciprocate officially
on one day set apart from the year. Florist' shops, card shops, gift shops
make it an easy and appreciated incident to acknowledge the day. Ample
publicity makes it a matter of convention. But aside from matters of con-
vention and ease, how much of Mother's Day do we celebrate and how much
of appreciation goes into the celebration?
A considerable amount, of course. Normal humanity naturally does ap-
preciate mothers, but today is the day on which we stress the appreciation
and not the celebration. A long letter home, a telegram, or the remembering
of some quirk of mother's likes that can be pampered. They may take time
and they may not reek of the dribbling sentimentality that splashes about on
the cards one buys to-send home, but they will "deliver the goods" better. In
this age of too-much sloganing we might add another one for Mother's Day:
"Don't sentimentalize - appreciate."

,Sphinx Reveals
Secrets To- Ten

Prof. John Castlereagh Parker, who
since 1915 has served as head of the
electrical engineering department of
the University, "has resigned from his
position with .the University and will
assume the office of electrical engi-
neer for an eastern central power
station company, it was announced
yesterday. Although the name of the
organization of which he will become
an official was not divulged, it is un-,
derstood that it administers to the
needs of the largest number of people
served by any central station com-
pany in the country.
Has Had Wide Experience
Professor Parker entered the- Uni-
versity from Detroit in 1897. He re-,
ceived the degree of bachelor of sci-
ence (mechanical engineering) in 1901.
The following year he was granted the
degree of master of arts, and in 1904,
that of electrical engineer. After a
year of service with the General Elec-
tric company, Schenectady, N. Y., he
served for a year as instructor in me-
chanical and ellectrical engineering
for Union university, Schenectady.
From this position he became as-
sistant to the engineer in charge of
the Niagara Construction company, de-
signing and building the 220,000 horse
power electrical generating plant of
the Ontario Power company, the larg-
est then ever built. As assistant to the
vice-president and chief engineer of
the Iroqu'ois Construction company,.in
1905 and 1906, he assisted in the build-
ing of the lines of the Niagara, Lack-
awanna, and Ontario Power company
from Niagara Falls to. Syracuse, at

that time the largest and highest volt-
age transmission in existence.
Engineering Economics Specialty
Professor Parker was chosen me-
chanical and electrical engineer for
the Rochester Railway and Light
company, Rochester, N. Y., in 1907,
from which position he was called to
the professorship of electrical engi-
neering in the University in 1915. His
consulting engineering work during
these periods has included public util-
ities investigations and reorganiza-
tions for the cities of Detroit, Tole-
do, Grand Rapids, and Jackson, and
such public utilities corporations as
the Detroit Edison company and the
New York State railways.
Economics in its relation to engi-
nebring has been a field of special re-
search by Professor Parker through
his periods of service to private or-
ganizations and to the University.
No successor to Professor Parker
has been named.

O (By Harry C. Clark)
One of the most noteworthy, daring,
and successful attempts perhaps in
the field of college dramatics' was
made by the Mimes theater in off er-
ing. the first - presentation in America'
of "The Cloister," a play unusually
hard to produce because of the poetic
form in which its lines were written,
because 'of a setting which lacks pop-
ularity in the modern drama, and be-
cause of the exaction of unique char-
acter portrayal in the lines. "The
Cloister," written by Emile Verhae-
ren, was played last night for the
second time at the Mimes theater un-
der the auspices of the Mimes Dra-
matic society.
, All the characters of the play ap-
pearel adapted to their parts, but spe-
cial mention should be made of those
whose roles were he.viest, as the dif-
ficulty of the parts seemed to be in
proportion to the exceptional quality
with which they were acted. Carl W.
Guske, '22, in the highly emotional
role of Dom Balthazar did especially
well in carrying out his part, which
was alternately touched with peni-
tence, humility, faithfulness, and con-
science. To Thomas Underwood, '23-
L, we must accord praise for the fi-
delity of portrayal in the execution of
his character work as Father Thom-
as, a crafty, proud, and scheming
monk. Elman S. PettiJohn, '22E, gave
a true interpretation to the part of
the prior, a calm and masterful man.
Lauren B. Stokesberry, as the pure
and innocent Dom Mark, and George
S. Buchanan, '22, as the clear-sighted
Dom Militien, carried out the true
spirit of their lines.

In a personal statement to repre-
sentatives of the press yesterday morn-
ing, President Marion L. Burton de-
clared that the University is capable
of handling the Orr case'and any sim-
ilar one which may arise. He intim-
ated that no attempt would be made
to deter Louis T. Orr, Sr., father of
the freshman, from- taking his case
into court if he so desired.
Orr has been in Ann Arbor for some
time, during which period he has been
allowed to present his case before the
Senate council, the deans in confer-
ence, representative students, and the
President in person. In spite of his
comparisons of University students to
Chicago's "wrecking crews," he has
so far failed, in the President's opin-
ion, to present any evidence worthy of
serious consideration. The situation,
according to President Burton, is not
in any sense extra-ordinary, being of
no more significance than other similar
sporadic outbursts which have occur-
red from time Ito time for many years.
"There is no action to take," said
the President. "The men of the Uni-
versity are not 'crooks, thugs, and
bandits,' but a splendid, clean body
of young men. Admitted that the or-
iginal occurrence was carried a little,
too far, the situation has been satis-
factorily handled without any assist-
ance from Mr. Orr, and we are per-
fectly competent to take care of the
case in the future. We have listened
to him out of courtesy."

Twice every year the mighty Sphinx
speaks and unfolds to the weary trav-
ellers before it the great secrets of
which it is the guardian. Last night
at 6:30 o'clock the annual spring
Mummification took place in the
Union. The men chosen to enter the
Sphinx, junior literary honor society,
were iritiated into the secrets of that
society at a banquet at which several
of the alumni, active members and in-
itiates spoke. Those who were ini-
tiated were: J. L. Blott, H. K. Duf-
field, W. H. Hattendorf, H. D. Hoey,
T. G. Kindel, H. G. Kipke, S. N. Muir-
head, L. E. Neisch, W. K. Scherer, D.

The official date for the distribu-
tion of the 1922 Michiganensian has
been set for tomorrow, according to
a statement made by R. F. Wieneke,
'22, business manager, yesterday. Dis-
tributipn will take place from a booth"
constructed in the east basement of
the -Library commencing at 1 o'clock.
Michiganensians will be given only
to students having their official re-
ceipt for payment. In addition to this
it will be necessary to furnish some
form of identification. Only enough
copies have been ordered to meet the
demand of those who have already
placed their " reservations.
In cases where the receipt has been
lost or mislaid, students will be re-
quired to call at the office of the
business nanager in the Press build-
ing later.
Students who wish to obtain books
for others who will not be able to call
in person will be required to furnish
a letter authorizing them to do so.
