(By Associated Press)
London, ec. 7.-With the tension
and anxiety of the past week giving
" place to general rejoicing, there has
been a day of all around congratula-
tions, of recalling the memories of
great figures in the Irish struggle
whose work and sacrifices paved the
road to today's accomplshment, and
of preparation for the necessary form-
alities for bringing the new Irish
Free State into .being. .
Believe Problem Solved
Nowhere is there any idea that any-'
thing can now happen to prevent itsi
birth, although difficult details may
have to be encountered.
* King George and David Lloyd George
to whom the public accord gives credit
for bringing about peace, were photo-
graphed today with a smiling group of
hismajesty's ministers on the ter-
L race of Buckingham palace and the'
picture was extensively displayed in
the evening papers.
Telegrams Reeeived
- Downing street, where stands the
official residence of the prime minis-
ter, was inundated with telegrams of
congratulation from all over the world.
One of the first results of the peace
-probably arranged for at the con-
ference when the treaty was drafted
-was the royal proclamation liberat-
ing more than 3,000 prisoners intern-
ed in Ireland. It is reported also that
there may be reconsideration of the
sentences imposed on thoseIrish men
convicted of political crimes.

Local Chapter of Organization Alters
Practice by Making Selection
in Fall
Sigma Xi, national honorary scien-
tific society, elected seven new men
into the organization, three to full
membership and four as associate
members, at a meeting of the Sigma Xi
council on Nov. 30.
Prof. Louis C. Karpinski, of the
mathematics department, Leon H.
Leonian, graduate student in botany,
and Warren Lee McCabe, '22E, were
chosenaas fullbmembers. The four
associate members were John B.
Leighly, '22, Elmore Shaw Pettyjohn,
'22E, Elton B. Tucker, 122E, and Jo-
seph T. Woolfenden, '22E. Initiation
of the new men will be held at a later
Original Work Fostered
The object of the society, as explain-
ed by Prof. Peter Okkeberg, of the
zoology department, secretary of the
organization, is to encourage original
investigation in pure and applied sci-
ence. Only such graduate students
are elected 'who have by actual work
shown an aptitude for scientific inves-
tigation, and undergraduates are chos-
en on the basis of scholarship and fu-
ture promise of ability to do con-
structive work. Students admitted to
associate membership may later be-
come full members upon demonstra-,
tionof actual ability in original work.
Policy Changed This Year
.This is the first time that a fall
election has been held by the Michi-
gan chapter of the society, but Pro-
fessor Okkelberg declared that this
was due to the fact that it was the
purpose of the organization to bring
worthy students into contact with the
members while they are still in col-
lege, rather than at the close of their
college careers orafter graduation.
Christmas Issue
Of Chimes Mlakes
Scoop Of Cam us
Christmas is more than two weeks1
off, but Chimes has accomplished a
scoop, the Christmas issue going on
sale today.
This month's magazine is brimming
over with attractive stories. The
cover is a three-tone Christmas scene
by Clayton Seagars, '23. "Is Michi-
gan Democratic", in which Leo J.
Hershdorfer, '23, takes the affirma-
tive and Maynard Newton, '22, the neg-
ative, presents an interesting subject
from two angles. Fred C. Kelly, '04,
has contributed "After Twenty Years",
an account of the trials that he met
while in college, and how he rose to
the front rank of magazine writers
after leaving school.
The frontispiece is a life-like draw-
ing of E. Mortimer Shuter, director of
the Michigan Union opera, by James
House, Jr., '24L. Accompanying thisi
sketch, is an article by Mr. Shuter on
"Thank God for the Fire", in which

he explains how he has coached the
Michigan operas to success.

Well Known War Leader of New York
Gives Oratorical Association
Charles S. Whitman, a reformer
who became governor, will speak in
Hill auditorium tonight on "The Ad-
minstration of Criminal Justice", in
the fourth number of the Oratorical
association lecture series, of which
Judge Ben Lindsey will be fifth, in a
lecture here on Jan. 7.
Mr. Whitman served as governor of
New York state for two terms, from
1915 to 1919, throughout the entire
war period. He is considered an au-
thority on his subject of criminal jus-
tice, not only through his adminstra-
tion during a particularly stringent
crime wave which swept through the
state during his term in office, but'
through various judicial positions held
in New York city.
While he was acting as district at-
torney for the county of New York it
was one of his achievements to con-
vict Becker, one of the most notorious
gunmen in the country. Since his re-
tirementfrom office in 1919, Mr. Whit-
man has continued his law practice in
New York city.

Book Gives Occasion for Al Actors to
Fill Roles With Equal
(By Paul Watzel)
Music, costumes and feature4ancing
that compare favorably with any of
the professional productions now on
the road, that in a word sums up the
sixteenth Michigan Union opera,
"Make It for Two", which appeared
for the second time last night at the
Whitney theater.
With a plot that, while in itself is
interesting, furnishes varied opportu-
nities for interspersed singing and
dancing, the production this year
seems to have accomplished what pro-
ductions of other years have failed to
do. And these opportunities were
made the most of, for in the feature
work every one of the actors were ca-
pable of giving the audience the high
class specialties that are demanded of
the musical comedy.'
Dancers Successful
Earl C. Powers, '22, George Z. Hoff-
man, '24, Julian L. Zemon, '23, Gordon
Loud, '22, and Gordon D. Wier, '24,
were the leaders in making the danc-
ing in the performance what it was.
Powers, who seemed to dominate
every time he appeared, was especial-
ly good. Zemon's solo dance was an
equal to any act of its kind that has
been seen here for years.
Costumes and scenery, especially
the former, were more than the most
critical could desire, and by far the
most gorgeous that have ever been
seen in Mimes productions. In the
"Four Seasons" and the "Garden of
Girls" the costumes were as much as
could have been expetced from a first
class Broadway company. The four
back-stage drops, in the "Four Sea-
sons" were effective and added to the
impression created by the girls.
No Stars Stand Out
To pick out any particular member
of the cast and lay finger upon hini
as the outstanding figure would be a
mistake. One of the strongest points
of the production is that the entire
cast was strong, Wilfred R. Laurie,
'22L, and William A. Sutherland, '2,
portraying the much used type of re-
versed domestic relations, put a punch
in their portrayals that will not soon
be forgotten.
Arthur H. Holden, '24, carried the
hero's part well, supported by Howard
L. Donahue, '24, and ably aided by the
schemes of lawyer Skinem, which part
was well taken by Howard S. Stimp-
son, '24. Carl W. Guske, '22, again
showed well in his interpretation of
the one-horse potentate. Albert F.
Schirmer, '22E, and Thomas I. Under-
wood, '23L, were an ideal team, with
James Dresbach, the "poet" trying to
The chorus showed the effects of
the good training that it has had
during the past weeks, and with a few
more rough spots taken out by their
continued stage appearance, will show
up to the best advantage, a thing now

within an ace of a reality.
Reception Given at Observatory
A reception was given at the Ob-
servatory yesterday afternoon and
evening for the faculty and towns-
people by Prof. W. J. Russey, head of
the astronomy department, and Mrs.
Hussey, and Prof. A. S. Whitney, act-
ing dean of the School of Education,
and Mrs. Whitney.
