New York Papers Adndre "Sparkling
Show" and "Dazzling
Fashion Revue"

."Cotton Stockings," the eighteenthz
annual Union opera, swung through
the east and middle west and estab-
lished itself as "the greatest college
opera ever produced," if criticisms
written by dramatic critics viewing
the performance can be believed. Ex-f
tracts from the reviews have been
pouring into the office of Homer Heath,
manager of the Union, for the past two
Toledo was enthusiastic in its
praise. "Tricked out in the trappings
of a Ziegfeld revue and displaying
professional perfection in the aston-
ishing variety and novelty of its nu-
merous dance numbers, 'Cotton Stock-
ings' revealed itself to a packed house
in Keith's theater Friday night as the
most beautiful and elaborate college
show ever seen in Toledo," says V. K.
R. in the Toledo Blade. Dick Meade,
'writing for the Toledo News Bee,
goes even farther than this and says
that "there hasn't been a show in To-
ledo this winter that was as brilliant
as 'Cotton Stockings' in a dancing
way." The same critic also adds, "In
our experience Vs fan observer of
Michigan entertainments, the present"
effort is far beyond anything that has
come before."
Lauds Chorus Work
The choruses of the show were
judged well nigh fit for the profes-
sional stage by these same critics.
"Except for the fact that there is no
artifice of makeup which can make a,
gnarled and knotted male leg look
like anything else in the world, the
entire display might be one of the lux-
urious girl and music shows sent out
by Broadway's leading producers," ist
V. K. R.'s comment. Dick Meade be-
lieves that: "Individual stepping anda
team and chorus movements were'
done remarkably well, so good, in
fact, that iost of these boys, strange
as it may seem, might jump into the
chorus of a standard poduction and1
get away with it." .
The Cleveland Plain Dealer an-E
nounced in the headline over their re-
view that the "Boys in 'Cotton Stock-1
ings' wear everything but" and went
on to call the performance an "Il-
lusion in the n'th degree. Costumes

In Buffalo the opera scored a

the words of the Buffalo Courier. "Thef

Crests Of Oxford

Seals and arms of Oxford college,
are on exhibition in the main hall of

work of Nelson Dawson, of London,,
who is considered one of the two most

Booth obtained the crests while
traveling in Europe. Mr. Dawson ex-

Detroit, Jan. 20.-Thousands of auto
enthusiasts crowded the new conven-l
tion hall at Woodward and Cass ave-.
nues to usher in the twenty-third an-
nual show of the Detroit Auto Deal-
ers' association last night.
Last night's was the largest crowd
ever to attend an auto show in this
city. The brilliantly lighted hall withp
its immense floor space of 180,000
square feet was massed with 20,000
auto fans, who taxed the building to
its capacity. The throng was a va-
ried one, all kinds and conditions of
people seeming interested in the new
models, many of which recently ar-
rived from the New York show. Four
orchestras played in different parts of
the building.
Interest in the new models was
keen. No display was without its
little knot of people surrounding the
beautifully finished coaches, listening
to the salesmen tell of new or imp
proved features, clambering in and1
out of the luxurious sedans and talk-
ing excitedly among themselves. Sev-
eral new makes of passenger cars,i
never before exhibited in Detroit. at-(
tracted particular attention.I
Altogether, there were 329 passen-1
ger cars exhibited and 87 displays of
commercial vehicles. An unprece-
dented number of exhibits of automo-
tive equipment were also shown.
There is something of humor to be
found in the arrangement of exhibits.
The highest priced car on the floor,
a Rolls-Royce, priced at the modest
figur-e of $14,500, stands next to
Ford's latest creation, a roadster at
The annual interest displayed in
this year's show has been predicted
by automobile dealers in Detroit forl
some time. The much improved facil-
ities for showing in this city, together
with the remarkable improvement in'
passenger car construction during
the past year are given as the rea-
sons for the striking success of last
night's opening.

French is still the most popular{
language in the University, accord-I
ing to figures given out by Registrar
Hall. The figures show, however,,
that the number of students taking
that language has decreased fro
1,596 in 1920 to 1,296 a year ago. Ger--
man, on the other hand, has increased
in popularity, the number of students
in that department having increased
from 537 in 1921-22 to 616.
The re-instatement of German in
the high schools and its extensive use
in scientific works are given as rea-
sons for its increased popularity.'

the present evaporator the liquid
has to pass through 55 feet of this
coil before it escapes. A high vacuum
is carried in the space inside . the
pipe, so that the liquid boils with a
very moderate amount of heat, and
therefore the flavor of the food prod-
uct handled is changed as little as
possible. At the end of this coil of
Pyrex pipe the boiling liquid flows
into atpot of acid-proof earthenware,
from the bottom of which the liquiti'l
is withdrawn into glass receivers. \
This development has been carried
out 'by two students in the Depart-
ment of Chemical Engineering, work-f
ing under the direction of Prof. Bad-
ger, and the cost of the equipment
has been -met by the Swenson Evap-
orator Company, of Harvey, Illinois,
who suggested the problem.
