19231824 LECTURE
William Allen White, Judge Ben
Lindsey,' Stephen Leacock
Also Booked
What is expected to be one of the
most popular lecture courses given in
this University will be opened October
12 in 11111' auditorium when former
Gov. Frank Lowden of Illinois will
speak on the "Organization of Gov-
ernment". A program which will in-
clude lectures by such notables as
William Allen White, Judge Ben Lind-
say, and Stephen Leacock will be giv-
en throughout the school year under
the auspices of the oratorical associa-
tion of the University.
Prof. Thomas C. Trueblood of the
public speaking department who was
busy last spring arranging the pro-
gram and who has been active during
the entire summer getting in touch
with well-known, lectureres, states-
men, and diplomats, stated yesterday
that. the program this year would be
the most expensive given in this Uni-.
versity. Sinc the course was started
it has been considered the finest lec-
ture course in America. To date,
there are ten numbers scheduled and
'efforts are now being made to secure
another American speaker.
Portmanteau Players Scheduled
In the way of an innovation, on
November 27 the Portmanteau Plays of
the Stuart Walker company will give
two performances. In the afternoon
they will give two of Lord Dunsany's
plays, "The Gods of the Mountain",
andy "The Murderers". The evening
program wllr consist of a presentation
of "The Book of Job".
As a second n'umber on the oratoric-
al lecture course series following ex-
Governor Lowden's address, Mrs.
Carrie Chapman Catt, president of the
woman's suffrage movement of Am-
erica and former president of the wo-
man's puffrage movement of the world,
will speak on "Woman's World Move-
On November 9 Gay MacLaren will
give a dramatic recital. Miss Mac-
Laren, who has been called by many
critics "a whole theater company in
herself", will give Gilda Varesi's "En
ter Madame".
White to Talk on Harding
William Allen White, well-known
author and journalist, will be the next
to appear on the lecture series. He
will speak December 11 on ':Two
Hours with President Harding".
As the first number on the course
in 1924, Judge Ben Lindsay will speak.
Judge Lindsay was in Ann Arbor a
few years ago when he spoke on "Why
Kids Lie". His lecture was one of the
most popular on the course at that
time and it is thought that be will be
one of the crowd-getters on this year's
series. The exact date and subject
of his lecture has not been learned
as yet, but it s thought that it will
be given on either January 7 or 8.
The latest addition to the course
is a lecture by Leon Bakst, well-known
designer of costumes and stage set-
tings and a .notable figure in the art
world. le will speak January 12 on
"Costume and Personality".
Tta kimmen to be Discussed
"Tutankhamen and Recent Discover-
ies in Upper Egypt" will be discussed
on January 16 by Arthur Wegall,
famous Egyptologist and inspector
general of antiquities of Egypt. He
is said to have been present at the
opening of the tomb and to be well-

qualified to talk on such a subject.
Stephen Leacock, author and hum-
orist, will close the program on Marchj
5 when he is sche~duled to talk, on
"Rediscovering England". If another
speaker is secured as it is hoped he
will be placed in the course at any
date that it will be possible to se-
cure him.-°
Sell Individual Reserved Seats..
Instea of selling tickets for re-
served sections this year, it has been
decided to sell individual reserved
seats. Tickets for the entire series

Oklahoma Governor Orders Use of
Armed Fore to Preyen: Ses-
sion of Representatives

Oklahoma City, Okla., Sept. 24.-
-(By A.P.)-Adjutant General B. H.
Markham tonight was ordered by Gov.
J. C.. Walton to "use all force of arms
necessary" to prevent the session of
lower house of the Oklahoma legisla-
ture called for noon Wednesday.
Citizen Soldiers Ordered Out
All citizen soldiers of the state be
ween the age of 21 and 45 were di-
rected in the order to hold themselv-
es in readiness "with such arms as
they possess or can obtain" to come to
the assistance of the sovereign state
of Oklahoma when qrdered to do so
by the governor."
As a precaution against any attack
of the legislatures to meet elsewhere
than the house chamber at the capitol
the 'overnor also directed Adjutant.
-General Markham to disperse the
meeting at "any other time or place
in the state."
Governor Determined
With issuance of the military order
all doubt was removed as to the ex-
ecutive's determination to prevent the
house's session which has been called
by his opponents to consider his im-
peachment. The adjutant general was
ordered to use all military force of
the state if necessary to disperse the
- Governor Walton reiterated his
charge that the proposed meeting
would be an unlawful assemblage,
"dominated and controlled by the so-
called invisible empire."
"The troops will be ordered to shoot4
to kill, if that is necessary, Governor
.Walton told newspaper men. "I hope,
howeversthat no such, measures will
-be necessary."

Vanderbilt Plans
To Come En Masse
Just how many Vanderbilt students
will journey up to Ann Arbor from
Nashville, Tenn., for the game Oc-
tober 13, is difficult to conjecture, but
an estimate by F. K. Girasty, student
manager of the Vanderbilt team;
places the percentage at four-fifths
of the entire student body. In a let-
ter to Homer Heath, general manag-
er of the Union, Mr. Grasty stated
yesterday that there would be one
special train from Nashville, and pos-
sibly two, and "that by some way or
other four-fifths of the Vanderbilt
student body would be in Ann Arbor
to see the game."
Shuter Arrives Here; Starts Praet'iee
Machinery Mov-
Tryouts for the cast of the 1924
Union opera, the eighteenth annual)
sho', the name of which has not yet
been announced, were called for late
yesterday afternoon by E. Mortimer
'Shuter, director. Mr. Shuter arrived
in Ann Arbor yesterday morning from
New York where he spent the summer,
and by afternoon had the reins of
the coming show in his hands, call-
ing for men to fill some of the 18 po-
sitions in the cast.
Singers and Comedians Needed.
Singers and comedians are partic-
ularly needed this year, .and the rea-
son is not hard to seek. It is ru-
mored that the show will be taken
to New York and other eastern cit-
ies, and is to play at the Metropol-
itan Opera house in New York, and
theaters of similar reputation in oth-
er places. Inferior singing and com-
edy would be disastrous, and men
must be found to take the singing and
comedy parts in the cast.
Good stage comedians are not nec-
essa ily "funny boys" on the street
or in the house, it is pointed out, and
some serious minded individuals of-
ten make the biggest hits on the
I stage. Mr. Shuter 'points to Fred
Stone as an example of the latter
Careful Tryout to Be given
"I want to meet men who believel
they will make good comedians on the
stage," the director declared, "and
not those who have a cheap line of
humor." As to singers, Mr. Shuter
desires men with good voices, trained
if possible, but he is not looking for
the raw type of entertainer. "Every
man, whether he has singing, acting
or comedy ability, will be given a
careful tryout. We are still in neAd
