Artist- Author
Will Speak On
"Ideals In Art"
G. A. Beneker, well known artist
and writer on art, will speak at 4:15
o'clock this afternoon in West gal-
lery, Alumni Memorial hall, on
"Ideals in Art." Mr. Beneker is inter-
ested especially in the interpretation
of industrial types - the steel roller,
the welder, the -engineer and the
blacksmith. He has studied these men
at work and at play and now brings
them to the public in his canvasses.
His Victory Loan poster "Sure! We'll
finish the job" was one of the out-
standing posters of the war period.
To Beneker art is a constructive, co-
ordinating force in industry and in
life. "The right kind of a picture," he
says, "may thrill 0 different people,
each speaking a different language.
To help men and women go on work-
ing, loving, laughing, singing, living
with all their hearts and souls, is the
true purpose of art."
Althouse Secured in Place of Ric-
cardo Martin in "Tannhauser"
Paul Althouse, tenor with the Metro-
politan Opera company, will be the
tenor soloist in the Saturday night
concert in the May Festival series.
He will take the part of "Tannhauser"
in the Wagner opera, a role to have
been sung by Riccardo Martin, also of
the Metroolitan Opera company.
Martin Indisposed
At the last minute Riccardo Martin
notified the School of Music that he
would not be able to sing in the per-
formance of "Tannhauser." The only
reason given out is that he is indis-
posed. Yesterdaynoon rSchool of
Music officials got Mr. Althouse on
long distance wire, and succeeded in
securing him for the concert,
Althouse has sung the "Tannhauser"
role many times, both in German and
English, and is said to be one of the
finest interpreters of this role now
playing in opera. He is also well
known for his concert appearances, his
work with the Metropolitan and his
phonograph records.
William Wheeler to Sing
r Riccardo Martin's indisposition also
'necessitated getting 'a soloist for the
tenor hole in Stock's 'Psalmodic Rhap-
sody" to be given at tomorrow night's
concert. This part, an exceedingly
difficult solo, will be taken by Wil-
liam Wheeler, head of the voice de-
partment of the School of Music, a
tenor well known to Ann Arbor music
'natrons for his local concert and
teaching work.
Another annonucement given out by
the festival management is that all
the concerts will be broadcasted by
radio. After several weeks' negotia-
tions with the New York management,
the clauses, in the contracts against
broadcasting the concerts have been
1waived. Apparatus for giving these
concerts by radio, in the same manner
as those broadcasted all winter, has
been set up by the signal corps of the
R. 0. T. C. and is now in operation.
"If you, measure the success of an
institution by the success of its alum-
ni, the University of Michigan is sec-

ond to none in the country," said
Henry E. Riggs, professor of civil
engineering, in his talk to the fresh-
man engineers in room 348, Engineer-
ing building, yesterday morning.
Professor Riggs believes that the
engineeiing profession should be
known as a learned profession. He
claims thattthe profession is as old
as any of the professions which are
at present recognized as learned pro-
fessions. "There is no reason why we
are not a learned: profession," he
remarked. "We have just as many
marks of achievement to our credit."
Until after the Civil war there were
two types of. engineers, the civil and
the military. Since that time the im-
portance of the profession has grown
until now there are over 300 schools
that give instruction in this subject,
according to Professor Riggs.

Resolutions Disapprove Mutilation of
University Property in Class
Announcement of the speakers and
officials for Cap Night to be held May
26, plans for the occasion and action
against the informal Swing-Out fights
which have recently caused the de-
struction of University property were
the chief points taken up at the Stu.-
dent council meeting last night at the
Judge Robert F. Thompson, of the
supreme court of tle state of New
York, will be the alumni speaker at
Cap Night, while Angue G. Goets, '22M,
president of the Student council, will
act as master of ceremonies. The
faculty and student speaker have not
been selected as yet, but will be an-
nounced laer
Cap Night will be held; as it always
has been from time memorial in Sleepy
Hollow, near the University hospital.
Following the precedent as set last
year "M" blankets will be given out
during the exercises following the
burning of the pots. These will ,be
presented to the men by the faculty
Committee Named
The Student council committee in
charge of Cap Night was appointed as
follows : Chairman, Thomas J.
Lynch, '23E; committeemen, Eugene
Harbeck, '22E, W. W. Michaels, '22, W.
B. Beadle, '23Ed; and E. C. Haug, '23E
It was further announced thathall the
men who will be here for the inter-
scholastic meet at that time will be
invited to the ceremonies as guests of
the University.
Following Cap Night discussion the
question of regulating or abolishing
the fraternity freshman Swing-Out
fight, which has become a custom just
during the past four years, when am-
bitious yearlings have attempted to
'place their fraternity swing above the
others on the night before the Swing-
Out ceremonies, was brought up. The
council discussed this question thor-
oughly with a view to eliminating dis-
organization and lack of discipline at
the combats. Any plan of this nature
was held impracticable, however.
It then brought up the motion that
inasmuch as the affair is not a Mich-
igan tradition but only something that
has been developed in the last few
years, and being only sponsored by a
few fraternities, making it more dis-
organized every year, it should be
abolished. It was decided that action
would be taken next year'to see that
no fighting occurred.
Condemn Class Practices
The question of pjainting of class
numerals on the walks and buildings
of the University and destruction of
University )property in the various
class demonstartions was also taken
up and condemned. In regard to this
matter, the council called to the at-
tention of the classes the University
and council ruling made last year
against this, when freshmen painted
the walks. The taking of the fire
hose and ladders from the University
sheds which occurred during the re-
cent games was also brought up as a
violation of this ruling.

Candidates for Mortarboard Make
Attempt at Senior Dignity
To try to assume the dignity of a
senior when onet'is only a junior is
hard, according to 13 women of the
class of '23. It is even much worse
when one is aware that everyone else
is staring unabashed at the vain at-
It may be possible for a senior with
her cap and gown to impress profes-
sors that she should have been includ-
ed in the Phi Beta Kappa lists, but
a junior wearing the coveted head-
gear and looking as though she had
forgotten her robe doesn't even stand
the chance of fooling her instructors.
Surely you will see the poor unfor,
tunates on the campus this morning--
but after all they are not unfortu-
nate, for they are merely undergoing

May number of Whimsies which is ex-

play and two short stories stand out
in the month's contributions.
"Something to Smile Over, a one-
act play by Max Ewing, '24, ,has al-
ready been staged by the Players club
this spring with marked success. It
is a comedy in which the old idea of
telling the truth under difficulties is
transplanted into a next-door-to-

Rain Halts Match; With Score 8-1;
Chance for Victory Today
(Special to The Daily)
Philadelphia, May 17. - Michigan's
team continued to play /good tennis
today and when rain called a halt to
the match with the University of Penn-
sylvania, the score stood three matches
to one, in favor of Michigan. Play-
'ing in the singles had been completed
and the doubles were well under way
when the stekdy. drizzle of ,the after-
noon turned into a real rain storm.
Three of the singles went to Mich-
igan by virtue of wins of Reundel,
Rorich and Sanchez. Merkel fell be-
fore the fast game of Captain Morgan
of the Penn team. This match was a
long, hard affair. Both men were
driving well and good at the net.
Rorieh Wins
Rorich came throuigh with a well
earned win over Vanneman' of Penn.
The scores were 6-1, 9-7. In the first
set the Penn player was laying to
Rorich's pet shot. His lobbng game
was Just what Rorich desired and the
Michigan player's overhead made short
work of this style of game. The sec-
ond set found a change in the Penn
player's tactics with the result that
Rorich was forced to a long deuce set
before winning.
Sanchez finished up the.singles with
an impressive win over Moran, achop
stroke artist. The score was 6-2, 6-4.
Sanchez's drive and net game destroy-
ed the effectiveness of Moran's chop.
He went to the net at every chance.
In the doubles Reindel and Merkel
were pitted against Morgan and Man-
gum. The score stood at seven all
when rain put a' stop to the match.
' Doubles Played Today
Weather permitting, the doubles will
be continued on Thursday, which was
to be a day of rest for Michigan before
going to Lehigh on Friday. Sanchez
and Rorieh should win from Moran
and Vanneman. In Morgan and Man-
gum, Michigan's first doubles team
has run up against the stiffest doubles
competition on the trip. The outcome
of this match is uncertain. On, the
basis of the singles matches, Mich-
igan's showing against champion Til-
den's proteges has been gratifying.
