Ruth Draper To Appear Here
At Whitney Tomorrow Night

Ruth Draper, impersonation artist,
will present some of her original char-
acter sketches at 8:15 o'clock tomor-
row evening at the Whitney theater.
This is a. return engagement to Ann
Arbor, given under -the auspices of
the American association of Univer-
sity Women. Ticketq will be on sale
all day Monday at the box office, at'
the regular prices, $2, $1.50, and $1.
The properties which Miss Draper
uses are simple, 'and shte takes the
parts of all the characters involved in
her skits herself. One of her best
known performances is of the French,
dressmaker who flutters around two
susceptible American tourists for a
period of twenty minutes or so. But (
all three of these people are none otherI
than Ruth herself, in the same gar- k
ment, and with no disguise except her e
varying intonations of voice. Another
skit of a more emational nature is her
impersonation of a "hard-boiled" wait-;
ress out on the western plains banter-I
ing and chatting with the trainmen
until a wreck occurs and she becomes
a ministering angel.
It must be delightfil to see her
fall into the arms of her engineer oni
the Big Four, who really is nobody at
all, except the creation of Miss Drap-.

er's imagination and character deline-
Satire on lazy Americans slangy
Americans, jazzy Americans sim-
ple Americans, and occasionally
on foreigners and immigrants is
characteristic of her repertoire.
At times pathos and more high-
as "The Eeast Side Flapper," in which
the young lady boasts of her conquests-
to a companion on the Grand street
curb; or "A Class in Sour Culture," of
which she is the teacher; or again,
I "A Quiet Morning in Bed," wherein
the tired society woman registers,
selfishness and irresistibility.
Miss Draper will come directly from
Chicago for her appearance here. She
will be the guest of bean Joseph A.
Bursley and Mrs. Bursley while in
Ann Arbor.
All the boxes for Miss Draper's per- .
formance have been sold, according to
Mrs. H. M. Faust, chairman of the sale
of boxes. Following the custom of last
year, the box-holders are regarded as
patrons of the affair.
Miss Draper will leave for New York
after the performance to fulfill her i
engagements for the remainder of the
-M. B.

Last week, Harry F. Sinclair, who
is at the bottom of the whole oil
.ness, was called to testify before the
Senate committee. He came, but re-
fused to answer a single one of ten
questions which were asked him.,
Now he has been indicted on a charge
of contempt; and is on $5,000 bail.

Now that Daugherty is out, the
committe appointed to investigate his
office will attempt to steer clean of
evidence bearing upon his private life,
and will devote its time helping his
successor to correct any abuses which
tmWy be found in the department of
justice. President Coolidge has also
hinted that a little action on the more
important bills might well be taken

Harlan Fiske Stone, of New York,
was chosen by President Coolidge as
new head of the department of justice.
He is Dean of the Columbia law school
at present, but his resignation will
become. effective as soon as he takes
over his new job. He is the result of
the President's effort to find a "75,000

Following the successful negotia-
tion of the liquor treaty between
Great Britian-and the United States,
the state department is glancing about
for new worlds to conquer. It is now
negotluting with Japan, Germany Den-

Netherlands for similar treaties.

Undaunted by the failure of an ex-
pedition to find a pink-headed duck.
in the wilds of Siam, a party from the,
University of Pennsylvania has gone
to Brazil in quest of a Hoazin bird,
which cracks rock with its bill, swims,
resembles a bat, and is noted for its
coyness. It will also try to bring home
a live bell bird, so called because, in-
stead of singing, it tinkles.
