Barton Pond Again Mentioned as
Suitable Place for
Rowing may be recognized as a
sport at Michigan if favorable action
is taken upon a student petition sub-
mitted to the Board in Control of Ath-
letics at its meeting yesterday noon
{u the Union. No definite decision
was made by the board'upon the plans
contained in the proposal but after
thorough discussion it was submitted
to a committee of the board, compos-
ed of Fielding H: Yost, Charles B.
Ducharme, and Prof. William H.
Frayer, of the history department, for
report at the next meeting.
Boat House at Pond
The plan as submitted by the peti-
tion would establish a boat house on
the shore of Barton pond, using the
lake itself for a course of the regu-
lation length, one and five-sixteenths
miles. The fact that the course would
of necessity be curved toward the up-
per end of the pond is declared to be
of no importance, as the Canadian
Henley regatta is held every year on
a course similar to the one propos-
ed. With the present width of the
lake, it could be made to accommo-
date comfortably seven crews rowing
abreast. The smoothness and freedom
from other craft is also cited as an
advantage possessed by the pond.
W. A. Warner, at present coach at
the Detroit boat club, and W. T. No-
ack, '22, have vlunteered their servic-
es as coach and assistant coach for as
long a time as the Athletic association
may require them. Winter training
quarters for the crew could be pro-
vided in Waterman gymnasium by the
construction of eight rowing ma-
chines, according to an agreement al-
ready made with Dr. G. A. May, di-
retcor of the gymnasium. More than
25 experienced oarsmen are declared
by the petitioners to be on the cam-
pus at the present time, with the pos-
sibility of others not being included in
the computation.
Competition Plentiful
Competition could be provided by
the crews of the University of Wis-
consin, the University of Toronto,
Syracuse university, and seven boat
clubs within short distances of Ann
Arbor. In addition, the Michigan crew
could enter the American Henley re-
gatta in the East after sufficient train-
ing and compete with such schools as
Princeton, Cornell, Syracuse, Colum-
bia, and the University of California.
The initial outlay for equipment and
the year's expenses is computed to be
less than $4,500, with three shells, a
coaching launch, rowing machines,
and oars provided. An offer from the
Huron Farms company for some land
adjoinng Barton pond and favorable

Noted Jiusicians
Appear Here In
Monday Concert
Ann Arbor will be given the oppor-
tunity to hear the work of two re-
nowned musicians for the first time at
8 o'clock tomorrow evening in Hill
auditorium, when Edwin Nyiregyhazi,
Hungarian pianist, and the Detroit
Symphony orchestra, Victor Kolar
conducting, will give the second con-
cert of the Extra Concert series.
Mr. Kolar's rise from the ranks of
the orchestra to his present position
has proved again and again the high
quality of musicianship which he pos-
Mr. Nyiregyhazi also appears for the
first time in Ann Arbor. He has chos-
en for his offering Liszt's first con-
certo in E flat major, consisting of four
movements. This work of the Hun-
garian composer requires not only a
complete mastery of the piano, but
also an almost uncanny understanding
of the modern orchestra.
The pianist is a strange. figure on
the concert stage. Tall, thin almost
to a point of emaiation, he has much
the same weird atmosphere that mark-
ed Paganini. With an air of utter,
weary indifference to all external in-
fluences, he seems almost to have
reached the impassive calm of the
Oriental. Yet he is all vitality once
he sits before the keyboard.
The orchestra will offer Tschaikow-
sky's fifth symphony during the first
part of the program and after Mr.
Nyiregyhazi's appearance will close
the program with the ballet music
from Gounod's "Faust," and Enesco's
"Roumanian Rhapsody" in A major,
Opus 11.
More than $2,000 was realized for
the women's building fund from the
Christmas bazaar which was given
Friday and Saturday in Barbour gym-
nasium under the auspices of the
campaign committee of which Neva
Lovewell, '22, is chairman. The ba-
zaar was well patronized and nearly
all of the fancy work was sold imme-
dliately after the doors opened the first,
day. A final sale of all remaining
goods was made at an auction late
last night at which Catherine Stafford,
'24. acted as auctioneer. '
The tea room was under the direc-
tion of Margaret Whyte, '23,.and made
more than $200. During the entire ba-
zaar the fortune tellers were kept
busy and the booth, which was under
the direction of Lois Whitcomb, '22,
made $70."
Miriam Reid, '23, had charge of the
bazaar, Dorothy Jeffry, '24, was treas-
urer, Ruth Deemer, '22, was chairman
of the marking and placing commit-
tee. Martha Shepard, '22, had charge
of the construction of the booths and
the decorations and Katharene Mont-
gomery, '22, was chairman of the pub-
licity committee. A complete reporth
of the bazaar will be, made Wednes-

Anglo . Japanese Alliance Annuled;
Treaty Applies to Pacific
(By Associated Press)
Washington, Dec. 10.-A new quad-
ruple agreement to preserve peace in
the waters of the Pacific was announc-
ed to the world today by the United
States, Great Britain, Japan, and
On consideration of the internation-
al realignment, Great Britain and Jap-
an' agreed to consign to the scrap-
heap the Anglo-Japanese alliance, long
viewed with apprehension by both Am-
erica and Asia. The provisions of the
pact, which is in the form of a 10 year
treaty, are confined to the "regionstof
[the Pacific ocean.' Under them the
foreign powers are. to respect each
other's island possessions, and are to
meet in convocation if disputes arise,
or if any of the four are threatened by
any other power.
Announcement of the treaty terms
was made at a plenary session of the
arms conference by Senator Lodge of
the American delegation, and was fol-
lowed by expressions of approval by
the plenipotentiaries of Great Britain,
France, Japan, Italy, China, the Neth-
erlands, Belgium, and Portugal.
The signatures of the representa-
tives of the powers have not been af-
fixed to thedocument, and there is an
intimation that they will be withheld
until the question of the naval ratio
shall have been settled definitely. The
naval situation remains unchanged
pending word from Tokio, but there is
general confidence that the approval
of the American "5-5-3" plan will be
made unanimous in the near future.

Well Woven Plot, Clever Dancing
Will Cause "flake It For Two"
To fie Remembered fiy Audiences

(By E. Vickery and M. Koch)
With grace in every movement,
unusually perfect rythm, unbelievably
light feet, and make-ups which would
have deceived even the most observ-
ant, the chorus girls of "Make It For
Two" won the hearts of the audience
at the matinee performance yesterday.
The stop dance, garden of girls, and
maize and blue dances of the second
act were particularly effective from
the standpoint of grace and costuming,
almost making the audience forget
that the creations are worn by men.
To Earl Powers, '22, and to Howard
Welch, '24, as leaders of the choruses
and for their solo parts, must go much'
of the credit.
For a solo number of real skill Jul-
ian Zemon, '23, was deserving of the
hearty applause awarded his soft shoe
dance during an interim of the sec-
and act.
The atmosphere created by singing
the "Victors" and by the maize and
blue chorus should bring a thrill to the
hearts of Michigan graduates who hear
the oprea on its tour. Outside of a
few touches of locaL color "Mage It
For Two" gave no hints of campus
colloquialisms, which should make it
a great success in other cities.
McManus could easily obtain new
ideas for his Maggie in "Bringing Up
Father" from William Sutherland, '22,
who takes the part of Mrs. Houghton.
Her rasping high keyed voice brought
scores of laughs from the house when
she unreasonably "wore the trousers"
In Henry's family. To her and to
James Dresbach, '24, as the masculine
Amy Lowell, who sometimes obeyed
the wrong muse, belongs the laurels
for character interpretation.
Arthur Holden, '24, carried the male
lead naturally and in a simple manner,
winning applause for the rich quality
of his voice in his solos, especially
"Loveland" and the song of the sea-
Costumes, settings, drops, and prop-
erties are worthy of the amount of
time and money spent in their produc-
tion, and can be rivaled only by such
companies as "The Follies."
Between acts when one glances
through the program he is impressed
by the clever style of the synopsis,
and the resume of the work done in
the production of the greatest of
Michigan operas.

(By Leo J. Hershdorfer)
Another Union opera has gone down
in the history of Michigan's dramatic
activities asa success. "'Make It For
Two", product of the pen of Lo L.
Niedzielski, '24, and the admirable ef-
forts of Mimes' players, after six suc-
cessive performances in Ann Arbor,
has earned for itself a name that will
live long not only in the minds of the
student body, but, it is safe to pre-
dict, among the alumni who will have
the opportunity to view the opera dur-
ing the coming weeks.
"Make It For Two" presents a well
woven plot, interspersed here with
touches of genuine humor, there with
scenes that recall the wierd, roman-
tic tales of the Arabian Nights,and
again with hints of realism, of Broad-
way, of Long Island and of Ann Arbor
Last night's performance, the final
showing here, proved that with prac-
tice comes perfection, for the few
rough spots which had somehow made
themselves noticeable in earlier per-
formances were entirely eliminated.
Not a male foot in the chorus was
lifted a second too late to execute the
difficult "spiral kick", not a jewel-be-
decked hand fluttered awkwardly in
the air - Adam would never have
recognized Eve, if he had been in the
audience last night.
The scenic effectsnare especially de-
serving of mention, and the rapid
change of scenes from spring to sum-
mer, from fal to winter in the dance
of "The Four Seasons", drew hearty
applause. Music there was a-plenty,
and credit and praise are due to the
composer, Forman C. Brown, for his
wonderful songs, "Naughty Eyes" and
"Loveland" promise well to remain
permanently in Michigan songdom.
Wilfred R. Laurie, '22L, and W. R.
Sutherland, '22, were typically charac-
teristic in their interpretations of the
roles of Mr. and Mrs. Houghtn, while
Carl W. Guske, '22, as King Nemo
was the irresistible "life of the party."
Arthur H. Holden, '24, as the deter-
mined lover, and Howard .S. Stimson,
'24, as the clever lawyer, with Julian
L. Zemon, '23, Gordon D. Weir, '24,
specialty dancers, gave to the show
an air of professionalism, and Lyonel
E. Ames '24 proved so effective in his
makeup that he *would have no trou-
ble in gaining admittance to the Jun-
ior Girls' play.

opera, "Make It For Two", on its road
tour during Christmas vacato can

ed from the theaters on the opera trip
