New Union Radio
Draws Big Crowd
If the enthusiasm <and size of the
crowds1 are any indication the Michi-
gan Union's new radio, receiving play
by play reports on the big league
world's series games, is a success.
Large crowds have filled the tap room
every afternoon since the radio was
installed last week .and cheering is
not uncommon when a sensational
play is made. The crowds thus far
have been unanimously for Washing-
ton in the world series and Sunday
afternoon they waxed hilarious when
fthe Senators beat New York.
The set has been working to per-
fection with practically no trouble
with static. Two loud speakers carry

alowr Will 'You Go
Down To Urbana?
Bum, Bus, Or Train
As the time for the Illinois-Michi-
gan football game approaches many
means of transportation to and from
Urbana are being proposed by stu-
dents eager to see the battle between
the two conference champions. Prob-
ably the cheapest mode of transporta-
tion as yet to meet the favor of Michi-
gan football enthusiasts is the original
catch as catch can method, that is,
ride as far as an empty pocket-book
will allow, and let conscience be the
guide the remainder of ,the way.
There will be other students who
will probably feel themselves flushed
and for their benefit the railroads and
motor bus lines have devised means
by which they might be relieved of
their burden.
A round trip by way of the Michi-,
gan Central Railway can be had, due
to a special rate offered by that rail-
road at only $11.24 plus a charge of
$7.50 for a lower berth.1

Varied Selections, Including Numbers
By Young American Composer
To Be Offered
Paul Whiteman and his famous or-
chestra will make their second ap-
pearance at 8 o'clock tonight in Hill
auditorium when they will present
an entirely new program with the ex-
ception of George Gershwin's "Rhap-
sody in Blue," which is being repeat-
ed by request.
The program is unusually interest-
ing, for beside the popular music Mr.
Whiteman is, to introduce a new comn-
poser, a young American, Eastwood
Lane, who is responsible for several
numbers on the program. "Persim-
mon Pucker," is the first, and is in
a brisk dance rhythm, somewhat in
the manner of recent musical novel-
ties quite popular today. "The
Minuet," the second piece, was com-
posed to the memory of Betty Schuy-
ler, a famous belle of New York, who
was the wife of Alexander Hamilton.
It Is very quaint in its courtly state-
liness and has the charm of the old
dances which are so in contrast with
the dance music of 1924.
The third piece by Lane is "Sea
Burial," which the composer de-
scribes as a marine tone painting.
Its opening measures voice a desolate
grief poignant in its intensity. The
ship sways, lunging toward a west-
ern, sky whose vieled sun has already
set. A little crew offer a short prayer
as the elements, triumphantly claim
another soul that challenged fate by
going to sea.
Another interesting feature of the
program wil be a number of pieces
demnonstrating what remarkable
charm, can,,e the result of adapting
standard selections to dance rhythm.
