STATE at JACKSON-on the Northeast Corner-CHICAGO

Embarking upon its annual tour to-
day, the 1924 Michigan Union Opera
leaves on a trip which promises to
heap added laurels upon the name
and fame of Michigan. As the ini-
tial venture of Mimes productions in
the blase East, "Cotton Stockings"
carries the s'pirit of undergraduate
activities at the University in'to foreign
territory with the duty of establish-
ing Michigan as Queen of th'e "effete"
East as well as undisputed Ruler of
the West. We may not be of the East,
but can rule there nevertheless.
Already having demonstrated its
merits by unprecedented success in
the local performances, the company
can feel well assured of a hearty re-
ception in the East, as well as in the
many other cities nearer home which
always accord Mimes productions the
warmest of welcomes and are an-
nually responsible for numerous cour-
tesies which doubly insure the plea-
sure of the trip. The Opera is one
of the University's most efficient pub-
licity factors, and as such serves a
worthy purpose.
That the calibre of acting, of the
music, and of the dancing in "Cot-
ton Stockings" is better than ever be-
fore is acknowledged. Costuming and
setting surpass not only Michigan's
best but the finest of any previous
college production in East or West.

teur dramatics, we wish "Cotton
