The eighth pair of subscription con-

greatest living master of the instru-

in Orchestra hall.

New York Enthusiastic
The papers of New York gave ex-
ceptional praise to the production.
"The audience placed its stamp of
approval on one of the brightest and
most sparkling college shows of the
season," is the comment of the New
York Times. "The costumes were
original and dazzling. The fashion
revue in the second act made the audi-
ence gasp.'s The Herald calls the
'girls' the "best of any in the theater
district of New York," and W. J. C.
in the Tribune reminisces to the effect
that "the smoothness, the stage pres-
ence, the grace of the collegians
brought to mind the best musical
shows of the.past-before revues and
jazz broke through."
Play Rouses Philadelphia
Philadelphia was roused from its
sober contentment into rapt enthusi-
asm when the opera played there.
Says the Philadelphia Record: "Those
boys from the University of Michigan
who brought their musical comedy
production to this city gave a welcom-
ing crowd at the Academy of Music
the 'surprise of their lives.' " And
the Public Lerger states: "Boys will
be boys. Especially college boys. But
when they put on gorgeous gowns,
bobbed wigs, rouge and lip stick, they
will be 'girls' and even a tired busi-
ness man would have difficulty in de-
tecting the indifference."
WThe critics there grudgingly admit-
ted, too, the superiority of the Michi-
gan show to the Princeton Mask and
Wig production that plays in that city
each year. "There was never such an
array of girls in any Mask and Wi
Club production-elaborate as they
are," says the Record, and that "Mask
and Wig never attempted anything
to compare with this." The Public
Ledger agrees: "Philadelphians have
become accustomed to college musical
productions, but the large audience
last night saw a musical show that
would hold its own with any current
Broaway attraction." The Bulletin
states that a "large crowd of energetic
and talented youngsters of that mid-
we t rn institution carried by storm
a large audience that was roused to
enth'usiasm by the musical comedy,"
,nd admits that the 'girls' were "real
charmers" even if they did have
Charges Girls With Shaving
The Pittsburg Gazette Times was
another of the many papers that
classed "Cotton Stockings" with the
professional shows. "If the name of
ny musical comedy producer on
froadway had been back of the pro-
auction of the show the University of
11ichigan presented last night, the
tfwner of that name would have felt
no tinge of shame at any time during
the evening." The Post classes the
mtusic as "throbbing love song, dreamy
waltz and jangling jazz."
"Beautiful girls they are, but they
bitler shave or patronize a barber
dhop," says Walter IS. Hickman, dra-
matic critic of the Indianapolis Times.
He continues: "It was a gorgeous nic-
ture. Any moment I expected Julian

ment as a professional exhibit."
Critics who viewed the show in its
Washington performance take issuej
with the Indianapolis writer. "'Cot-

in its very'naivette," says Harold
Philips in the Times. "It has the pro-
fessional touch but, preponderately,
