"Ad Hades cum sapienta," murmur-
ed the student body as they breathed
the last of exams and departed for
climes less scholarly-and more com-
fortable. With unburdened minds and
empty pens they soared light-headed
through the intervening days, J-Hop-
ping to a fancy tune or chopping wood
to a tom-tom rhyme back on the farm.
They paused, until their, cerebrumal
vaccuuities should again assume gob-
let-like propensities toward the wine
of learning.
. And, lest the ashes of a dead blue-
book should have made gritting cind,
ers in their paths of joy, may it be
known that the blessings of profes-
sors flowed upon them.
Toiling long hours over monoton-
ous attempts at information they
would relax their tense vigil and burst
uproariously into spasms of mirth. Im-
mediately thereafter they would cut
off their subscription to "Life," "The
Literary Digest," or other monuments
of wit, knowing that beside spontane-

tber of part time jobs open to the

s. Mary L. Stewart, student employ-
nt secretary, said Tuesday.
IPhe dish-washing, waiting-on-table,

st draw entirely on his own re-
arees for maintenance, are surpris-
ly scarce, she said, because of em-

Appealing to Wanderers
[tinerant laborerso ne'er-do-wells,
d floaters of all types are reported
have slipped into jobs formerly held
college men. The part time work is
d to be particularly appealing to
wanderers since it supplies the
cessities of life and involves only
ew hour's labor each day.
"However, we have been able to aid
re than 800 men this semester in
ding part time employment," said
s. Stewart. "We hope to place a

Another factor contributing to the
ucity of part time jobs is the tend-
cy toward economizing being ob-

Prof. A. H. Blanchard will preside
at this morning's meeting, which will
be held in room 348, engineering build-
ing, at 9:30 o'clock. Paul D. Sargent,
chief engineer, Maine state highway
commission, will deliver a lecture up-
on, 'Bituminous Surfaces on Gravel'
Roads;" "State Investigations Cover-

ject of a paper by G. C. Dillman,
maintenance engineer of the Michigan
state highway department, and Prof.
Herschel C. Smith, of the highway en-
gineering department.
Charles M. Upham, state highway
engineer of North Carolina, will com-
pare methods of sub-drainage by deep
side ditches and tile drains, and
Charles J. Bennett, 'state highway
commissioner of Connecticut, will
speak upon organization, manage-
ment, and methods of snow removal
from country roads, at the 2 o'clock

missioners. Highway appearance and
roadside development will be the
main topics to be brought up on Fri-
day, the last day of the conference.

ous gems from a freshman bluebook-
(seniors aren't immune)-publicatins
of professional humor waxed insistent.
One prophetic student of education
accurately foretold his semester
grades. As a prospective teacher he
was asked, "What are marks?" In a
fit of political science or foreign bank-
ing, he evolved the information that,,
"Marks are worth about half a cent
and according to latest reports are
still going down."
One startled professor received the
following apology to Kipling, under a.
blank page marked, "Answer III:"
"I pray, oh Lord of Hosts, be with me1
Lest I forget, lest I forget."1
The following page announced trag-1
"But the Lord of Hosts was with me
So forgot, so I forgot."
U der this dramatic appeal an en-
terprising instructor replied, "The
omisison will be charged against the
responsible party."
Following are sundry other reasons
why instructors at the University en-
joyed the vacation:
"The Spanish Inquisition was an in-
stitution for the suppression of hered-
"Evolution is the process by which
we give rise to our remote ancestors."
"A potato is a vegetable. When you
plant it is sends up several shouts."
Q. Describe the experiments of
Stockard and Pearl with alcohol.
A. The research was discontinued
some toime ,go.
Q. What caused the downfall of
A. It was caused by an eruption of
saliva from the vatican.
Q.' What was the Crimean War?
A. It was a holy war fought against
the Seventh Day Baptists.

Former President of New York Uni-
versity Will Give Washington'sa
Birthday Address
Washington's birthday, Wednesday,
Feb. 22, will be observed in Hill audi-
torium in a program which will take
the form of a University convocation.
Contrary to custom the past few years,
the exercises will be held in the morn-
ing, commencing at 10 o'clock.
Dr. John H. Finley of New York, a
man nationally prominent in educa-
tional circles and former president of
New York university, will deliver the
address. His subject has not been
announced.} He will be introduced by
President Marion L. Burton. For the'
remainder of the program, there will
be music by the Varsity Glee club un-
der the direction of Frank L. Thom-
as, of the School of Music, an organ
prelude and postlude by Earl V.
Moore, University organist, and the
mass singing of "America" by the aud-1
Owing to the fact that the exercises
will be in the form of a convocation,
the deans of the University will be
given seats on the stage with the Pres-
ident and the speaker. Seats directly
in front of the stage will be reserved
for members of the University facul-
ty, who will enter the auditorium in'
a body.'
A University holiday will be de-
clared according to the usual custom.

Scenarios submitted in the contest
carried on by The Daily before vaca-
tion are now in the hands of the judg-
ing committee and a final decision will
probably be announced before the end
of the week. The various judges will
-meet in a few days for consideration
of the better plots, which have al-
ready been selected from the number
turned in.
As soon as the scenario for the
movie is finally determined upon the
actual work of production in Ann Ar-
bor will be started. The producers
will supply a complete technical unit.
from their studios. Only men and wo-
men connected with the University
will appear in the picture.
Negotiations are now. being carried
on with affiliated producing compan-
ies to have two camera men from Cali-
fornia for the work of filming all the
Ann Arbor scenes. The importance
of good photography to a successful
'cture is felt by' the producers to
warrant the experiment.


Tickets for "Make It For Two," the
1922 Union opera, which will officially
open the Mimes Union theater Friday
evening, will go on sale to men only
at 10 o'clock tomorrow afternoon in
the box office of the theater. Mail or-
ders will be received now at the of-
fiee of the general manager in the
Union, and will be filled in the order
in which they are received. The price
is $2.
As a souvenir of the opening night,
the Union will give a piece of sheet
music of one of the song hits of the
opera to each man in attendance. In-
dications point to a strong demand
for the 500 available tickets, as there
are many new students on the campus
at the beginning of the second semes-
ter who have not seen the opera, in
addition to the hundreds who desire
to be present at the opening of the
theater itself.
The asbestos curtain, which was
hung yesterday, is said by critics to be
better than the curtains in most of
the large theaters. Artists and dec-
orators have been busy the past two
weeks giving the final touches to the
auditorium of the theater, the stage
and the dressing rooms downstairs.
Chosen as One of Five Men for His
Excellent Interpretation
of New England

Claire Dux, soprano, and Bronislaw
Huberman, violinist, have been engag-
ed to appear on the Choral Union se-
ries on the evening of March 14, tak-
ing the place of Rosa Raisa and Gia-
como Rimini; who were obliged to
cancel their Ann Arbor engagement
on account of change of plans of the
Chicago Opera association.
Miss Dux has established herself as
one of the outstanding international
personages in the operatic and concert
fields. She is 'a truly cosmopolitan ar-
tist.' The Poils~h soprano is the first
professional musician in: her family.
Her mother was related to the fam-
ous Clara Schumann, wife of the great
composer. Miss Dux appeared at the
age of 12 in a school presentation of
"Hansel and Gretel," given by Miss
Dux and her schoolmates for the ben-
efit of the poor children of the town.
Since that early appearance she has
swiftly risen to a position' at the top
among concert and operatic sopranos.
Bronislaw H'uberman was born in
1882 in Russian Poland, and at the
age of 7.had made a name for himself
as a violinist. He then studied under
Joachim and in 1893 made public ap-
pearances in Amsterdam, Brussels
and Paris. Later he attracted the no-
tice of Adelina Patti, who engaged him
to appear at her farewell concert in
1905. His sensational success imme-
diately secured for him an engage-
ment of 12 concerts. Two years later
Brahms, after hearing the yiolinist
play one of his concertos, was over-
come with emotion. From -that day
his career as a master violinist was
