Sparkling Comedy Of Mozart

Clash Occurs Over English Cemeteries
In Gallipoli; Turks Demand They
Be made Smaller
Lausanne, Jan. 24-(By A. P.)-
Great Britain's proposed- appeal to the
league of nations, against Turkey,
on the ground that the Turkish atti-
tude on the Mosul question threatens
to distuirb international peace was
tIhe subject of a long conference to-
day between Lord Curzon, the Brit-
islh foreign Secretary, and Sir Eric
Drummond, Secretary General of tho

A unique and delightful innovation
in the Choral Union concert serie was
provided last nigl't when Mozart's
comedy, "The Impresario", was pre-
sented-the first opera ever given in
Ann Arbor with costumes and scenic
investiture. The audience, which oc-
upied every available seat in Hill
auditorium attested its enjoyment of
the performance with almost constant
laughter and insistent interruptionsj
of applause. Aside from its novelty,
the production was an admirable one
in many ways and fully merited the
approval with which it 'was received.
First honor: go unquestionably to
Percy Hemus, whose interpretation of
the part of Emanuel Schickaneder
was the high light of the evening.
Mr. Hemixs is extremely versatile, re-
vealing pronounced talent both as a
comic actor and as. a vocalist. His
role of the pompous impresario, liar-

ased by prima donna tantrums, is
one of extreme difficulty; for it de-
mnands a display of foolery of which
few are capable. Mr. Hemus is an
indefatigable comedian whose everyI
move is exquisitely ludicrous and in-
variably applause-producing. The,
inimitable absurdity with which he
acted aroused gales of laughter, es-
pecially when he <sought to execute
the cadenzas of the Queen of Night
and experienced a complete collapse.
When he turned, from comedy to song
he demonstrated that he is an ad-
mirable artist ,possessed of a baritone
voie of fine timbre. His rendition of
even so lugubrious an aria as Saras-
tro's was roundly applauded.
The other singers were adequate for
the parts to which they were assign4
ed, but did not manifest any remark-
able qualities. None of them was,
per seextraordinary, they formed a
well balanced cast and a satisfac-
tory background for the art of Mr.
Hemus. The two rival sopranos, Haz-
el Huntington and Lottice Howell,
fought valiantly with the odds decid-
edly in favor of the former. Neither
succeeded in scaling the heights of

Representative Suggests Preparation
of Budget for Several Years in

Lansing, Jan. 24-(By A.P.)-The
University of Michigan mill tax rate
would be reduced from 3-5 to 3-8 of a
mill, under a bill introduced in the
House today by Representative Wal-,
ter Henze, of Iron Mountain. The
present rate is yielding the University
$3,000,000 annually on the state'q
equalized valuation of five billion dol-

to be offered, the first proposing 2,-1

The University committee returned1
fromi .Ann Arbor today but will note
meet to consider their report until al)
of the University appropriation bills'
are introduced. The completc budget
calls for about $7,250,000.
Expect Pruning of Budget
.While members of the committee
are non-commital on the probable
recommendation, ;it has been indi-
cated that most of the expected prun-
ing will be made on the new building
Representative Charles Culver, of
the House committee has suggested
that the University prepare a budget
covering all needs forseen for ser.i
eral years to come, and, that a refer-
endum be held on the question ol
bonding the state for that amount anO
giving the administrative board gen.
eral supervision over the expenditure.
This, it was pointed out, would put

Walpole Reputed
Capable Speaker
When Hugh Walpole comes here to
speak tomorrow night, he will talk
before a critical audience. His repu-
tation among English speakers, which
has preecded him here is an enviable
From reports that have come from
cities in this country where Mr. Wal-
pole has already spoken, it would ap-
pear that the audience may come pre-
pared for a good speech.
The author is said to have a rapid
fluent style and beautifully phrased
paragarphs that at times seem al-
most to tumble from his lips. The
manner in which they are spoken in-
dicate that they come from the lips
of a thorough literary student. In
addition to containing depth and sub-
tlety, Mr. Walpole's speeches thus far
in this country are said to have been
uncommonly informative and full of
little glints of humour and a deli-
cious clean-cut drollery.
