have spent enormous sums in a suc-

stances of questionable political man-
euvering' ever since it first began to
take an interest in national affairs.
Perhaps this explains the recent
freshman election. Perhaps the em-
bryo college men of Michigan have
been so steeped in the atmosphere of,
political strife, that they consider no
election complete without such tact'
tics as stuffing the ballot box, chang-
ing names on ballots, and other prac-
tices. More likely the freshmen Wed-
nesday were simply emulating the ex-
ample of their superiors , in class
standing. More likely they were fol

As the first program of the year,
the members of Comedy Club are pre-
paring a bill of three one-act plays
to be presented Wednesday, October
15, in Sarah Caswell Angell Hall un-
der the direction of Valentine Davies.
The cast for "The Man With the
Bowler Hat" by A. A. Milne, the first
number, will include Valentine Davies
as John, Elizabeth Strauss as Mary,
Barre Hil as 'the Hero, Ruth Ve.
milyea as the Heroine, Robert Hend-
erson as the Villain, Alfred Browning
as the Bad Man, and Harwood Bright
as the Man in question with the Bow-
ler Hat
In "A Matter of Husbands" by Fer-
enc Molnar, Mina Miller will pla
the part of the Very Famous Actress
and Margaret Effinger, the part of the
Earnest Young Woman.
The final play,' Andre de Lorde's
Grand Guignol melodrama, "The Wo
man Who Was Acquitted,"'is cast with
Harwood Bright as the Judge, Jack
Hassberger as the Doctor, Margue-
ite Goodman as Madame Menarde,
Alfred Browning as Roblot, Earl
Sawyer as Cousol, and Valenth,'
Davies as the Attorney.
The settings, also under the direc-
tion of Valentine Davies, make use
of the black curtain theory; black-
ness, nothingness everywhere, and a
skillful, suggestive flat or prop down-
stage to create the entire scenic ill-
usion. The program itself, naturally,
will draw a large audience-a Comedy
Club production always plays to a full
house-and will be unusually inter-
esting-a Comedy Club production is
always finished.
The School of Music, following the
musical marvel of the instant, has
been fortunate enough to secure
Madame Jeritza for the opening num-
ber in the Choral Union series, Octo-
ber 23.
Jeritza, as a woman, is the full.
blond teuton that comes from the land
of supermen. Her profusion of corn-
yellow hair falls everywhere, much
like Duse's, so that you subcon-
sciously feel she should be given a
hairnet. Invariably she appears in a
soft, billowy white crepe with many
up and down lines: white, you see,
like black reduces the figure, Not
that Jeritza is plump of course, but
rather she pleasantly hovers in the
state of fascinating maturity that cli-
maxes a perfect development.
I have heard her only once, as
Elsa in Lohengrin at the Metropoli-
tan, and there everything is so dis-
turbing: the building itself is so im-
possible, and the audience the most
ill-bred in the world. In spite of such
' obstacles, however, her personality
was radiant, as effective as possible
in the rather tipsy mock-heroics of
"Lohengrin"-at least, there is no
more ungrateful role in the literature
than Elsa.
Her voice is peculiarly like Frieda
Hempel's: full in a way, but spark-
ling too, very luscious and scintallat-
ing. Possibly there has been a ieas
ure of luck in her meteoric popular-
ity, or a bit of hokum in her success
-as there is in every great artist
from Chaliapin to Mrs. Fiske; her
stomach-scene in "Tosca," her Act
III, Scene I of "Lohengrin," or her
tumble down the stairs in "Thais,"
(she tripped on her train, and the
critics had hysterics because there
had never been such a convincing
fall in the history of the opera!,) all
these factors may have been a notch
down from pure art, but they repre-
sent, an imagination that is akin to
The point is that she is startlingly
effective; she is on a par with the
radiant intuition of Mary Garden, and
she has an infinitely greater voice.
