Artist Is Described As "Perfect
Mimicry" and of Great
Dramatic Ability


Giving a three-act play unassisted
imitating the original characters who
acted in the production when given in
New York with what is said to be al-
most perfect mimicry, Gay MacLaren,
dramatic artist extraordinary, will act
tonight in Hill auditorium as the third
number on the Oratorical lecture
course program for this year.
Miss MacLaren will re-create Gilda
Varesi's "Enter Madane", beginning
the play at 8 o'clock. In the opinion
of critics of leading newspapers in
this country, she succeeds in enliv
ening the imagination of her audi-
ence to such an extent that they are
unaware they are not witnessing the
original production witir all of the
stage effects, dramatic equipment, and
the large cast of characters.
"A Remarkable Personage"
"I consider Gay MacLaren one of
the really remarkable personages in
the dramatic field", says Dixie Hines,
New York critic and well-known writ-
er on dramatic topics. "It would be
quite extraordinary forany actress to
impersonate cleverly a single char-
acter in all the plays she does, but to
impersonate all the characters clever-
ly in all the plays, leaves one speech-
less in surprise and admiration."
Mrs. Thomas A. Edison is also one
of, Miss MacLaren's admirers. "Gay
MacLaren is most remarkable in her
ability to make her characters live,
and in holding one's interest from
start to finish without the assistance
of stage setting in any particular",
says Mrs. Ellison
TiCkets Remain
Another bit of praise is given her
Work by the Boston Globe. It says,
"If it should come to pass that the
expense of routing plays is too great,
a few Gay MacLarens and we will
never miss the acttial play."'
Tickets will be sold at the box of,
fice tonight In Hill auditorium, the I
office opening at 7 o'clock. There are
still a few reserved seats left fdr the
lecture series and they may be pro-
cured at that time. The general ad-
mission to the entertainment tonight
will be $1.
The audience is requested to be in
their seats by 8 o'clock so that there
will be no interruption after Miss
MacLaren has started the presenta-
tion of the play.
Alumni who return to Ann Arbor at
any time during the year will be given
official welcome by a new committee
of the Union that has been installed.
The committee will co-operate with
the alumni association and with Wil-
fred B. Shaw,'00, secretary of the as-
sociation, in meeting the men and car-
ing for them during their stays here.
The committee which will be known
as the alumni relations committee
will work under the supervision of the
general reception committee of the
Udiion of which Charles Livingston '25,
is chairman. Heading the new com-,
mitee will be William D. Roesser, '25,
as chairman. He will be assisted by
Joseph Gandy, '26; Allan Groud, 26:
Robert Bennett, '26; and Sidney Huff.
'26. Other members to this committee
will be appointed later.
The first work that the committee
will take up will be over the present
week end. A list of the alumni re-
turning to Ann Arbor for the game
will be secured from Mr. Shaw, and
each of the alumni will be personal-
ly visited by a member of the com-
mittee. They will be given every ser-
vice that the committee can offer and
aided by the committee in any bus-
ness thatthey have to carry out here.

Chicago, Nov. 8.-Football sched-
ules for the 1924 season will be draft-
ed at a meeting of the coaches and
athletic directors of the Western Con-
ference to be held here Nov. 30 and
Dec. 1, it was announced here tonight.
The faculty representatives of the
''Big. Ten" also will meet at the same
time to give consideration to several
new rules governing the sport. As
a result of the charges of profession-
alism filed against G. C. Gerber star
tackle of the Wisconsin eleven it is
also probable that the faculty rep-
resentative will consider the adopt-
ion of a rule establishing Oct. 1 as
the latest date that ineligibility
charges may be considered.
The baseball and track coaches
of the "Big Ten" have an agreement
under which no cases of ineligibility
may be taken up after the start of
the season. Some of the football
coaches favor a similar agreement for
the gridiron season.
Athletic directors and faculty rep-
resentatives will hold a, joint session
Nov. 30.' The baseball, football and
track schedules for the 1924 season
will be drawn up the next day.
Fitting celebration of the 5th an-
niversary of Armistice day, Nov. 11,
is planned by the local post of the
American Legion in the form of a
military dance to be held tomorrow
night at Barbour gymnasium.
A legion committee has bleen at
work on decorations of an unusual
character. All ex-service men are re-
quested to come in'uniform to add to
the effectiveness of the decorations.
All arrangements have been complet-
ed with the University of Michigan
League building fund, and they are to
receive one half of the funds collect-
ed as receipts. Tickets are'- on sale
at Graham's and Wahr's book store.
A short supper will be served as a
part of the program, and is to be in
charge of the honor council, Miss
Helen Locke, '24, as chairman. Wil-
