Object of Spring Programs to Find
and Develop New Material
for Union Opera
Mimes of the Michigan' Union initi-
ated 13 new'men into the organization
at the annual banquet in the Union
last night. Robert A. Campbell, treas-
rer of the University, and Paul Buck-
ley, assistant to the Secretary of the
University, were were made honorary
The students taken in were: Ly-
man Bright, '25, E. W. Brownbridge,
'25, Walker Everett, '26, Joseph Ellis,
'26A, Richard Elliot, '27, Chas. B.
Heintz, '26, Robert Henderson, '26,
Russel Gohring, 27, Dan. S. Warner,
'27, Carl Trempf, '26, and Donald
Johnson, '25.
Short speeches' were given by
Charles Livingstone, '27L, president
of Mimes, and Mr. Campbell. Plans
for further activities for 'the organiza-
tion, exclusive of the Opera, were an-
nounced. Three programs will he
given inathe Mimes theatre after'
spring vacation.
The first will be a three-act comedy,
to be chosen from a list of popular
Broadway successes The manuscripts
for these plays have been sent for.
Among them are "The Old Soak,"
"Barnum Was Right," "Fair and
Warmer," and "The Acquittal."
The play which will be chosen from
the above list will be presented under
the direction of members of Mimes.
Mr. Shuter, who is at present direct-
ing the Wisconsin annual opera, will
return in time to apply the finishing
The tryouts for this play will be
open to all members of the Union, asI
one of the aims of the work will .be to
disclose new talent for the Opera.
They will be judged by a committee,
composed of Kemp Keena, and John
Bromley, '25, Charles J. Dresbach,
'26L, Robert Henderson, '26, Ronald
Halgrim, '26, and Charles Living-
stone, '27L.
It is also planned to present a mu-
sical comedy similar to "The Sweetest
Kiss," which was done last year. The
manuscript for this is already in the
hands of Mimes, and the name will be
announced at a later date. A vaude-
ville tournament will be held some-
time during the spring, and one of the
attractions at that time will be mo-
tion pictures of Dorothy Stone and
Roy Hoyer, of the "Stepping Stones"
company, which were taken to ilus-
trate the dances which they do.
The two latter productions will both
be for the purpose of finding and
training new material for next year's
Opera. Tryouts for the first produc-
tion will be held within the next few
weeks, and it is the hope of Mimes
that a large number of students will
appear at that time.

Harvard Man Denies Coaches'
Salaries Restricted To $8,000

Cambridge, Mass., Feb. 25.-(By A.
P.)-Henry Pennypacker, chairman of
the committee on athletics at Har-
i vard, in a statement late today, said
I that the agreement reached between
Harvard, Yale, and Prnceton as to re-
striction of football coaches' expenses.
applied to varsity football coaching
subjects and that individual coaches'
salaries had not been limited by
agreement to $8,000.
Mr. Pennypacker's statement fol-
"I very much regret the erroneous
statement published in Boston and
New York papers that the agreement
between Harvard, Yale, and Princeton
restricted the individual football
coaches' salaries in all three colleges
to a maximum of $8,000.
"This is not the fact. The restric-

tion was made on total varsity foot-
ball coaching subjects. The same
definite limit was set on -this subject
for each of the three institutions. The
mistaken report arose from the fact
that for some time the feeling has
been expressed in many quarters thatj
the salaries of the football coach
ought not to exceed the maximum sal-
ary of a professor, which at present
happen to be $8,000 at Harvard col-
"It should be distinctly understood,
however, that no such limit was set on
individual coaching salaries by agree-
ment of the three colleges."
Earlier in the day, Fred W. Moore,
graduate treasurer of athletics at
Harvard, had confirmed the story re-
garding the restricting of coaches'
salaries, as published yesterday in the
Boston Transcript.

Discusses Work of Surgeons Through
Renaissance; Compares It With
That of Present '
Prof. Frederick A. Coller of the sur-
igcal department of the medical
school spoke on "Surgery of the Dark
Ages" last night in the west amphi-
theatre of the Medical building. This
was the second lecture on the course
given by Alpha Omega Alpha, nation-
al honorary medical fraternity, deal-
ing with medical history.
In his talk last night, Professor
Coller compared the surgery of the
dark ages with that of the present
time. Beginning with a discussion of
the Hyppocratic period and the Gal-
enie period in surgery, he continued
as far as the Renaissance and the
time of Ambrose Bare, whom he styl-
ed the father of modern surgery. -
Many illustrations from the work
of Bare, depicting his methods of op-
erating and many of his instruments,
some of which he himself designed,
were shown with slides. Professor
Coller remarked that some of these
instruments have never been irpprov-
ed upon.
The speaker also discussed the
men, Hunter and Lister, whom with
Bare he termed the three great men
of surgery.
This series of lectures was inau-
gurated by Alpha Omega Alpha in or-
der to satisfy the desires of medical
students concerning medical history.
If the attendance at the speech last
night and the one which preceeded it
are any indication, the course has
proved unusually popular.
Washington, Feb. 25. (By A. P.).-
E.. B. Reid, acting Washington repre-
sentative of the American Farm Bur-
eau federation, tonight made public a
.letter to Chairman Moses of the Sen-
ate anagers in the cn ferenceon
the postal pay and rat increase bill,
whose report was approved today by
the House, declaring that the "farm-
ers feel outraged" because of the par-
cel post increases agreed upon.
"After having been assured by mem-
bers of the conference committee and
by many leaders in both the House
and Senate that the increased charges
to be levied on parcel post would not
be in "excess of $10,000,000 per year,
and after an increase approximating
that rate had been agreed upon by the
conferees," Mr. Reid wrote, "suddenly
the bill is put back to a rate that
would produce $20,000,000 additional
on the present volume of parcel post

Prof. 11. C. Sherman o$ Columbia Dis-
cusses Vitamins in Life and
and Health
Prof. H. C. Sherman, head of the
chemistry department of the Univer-
sity of Columbia and nationally re-
nowned in the field of nutrition, gave
two lectures yesterday in the chemical
amphitheatre. The first of these, "The
Vitamins in Life and Health," was
given in the afternoon, and "Enzymes
and Vitamins from the Chemical Point
of View" was given last night.
In his speech last night, which was
of a technical nature, Professor Sher-
man stated that in his laboratory
work, he made the discovery that thea
enzyme is presumably a protein or a
related substance. This statement is I

Presented as Means To Carry Out Re-
commendations of President's
Washington, Feb. 25. (By A. P.).-
The House today rejected the coopera-
tive marketing bill, which its agricul-
tural committee had reported as a
measure to carry out recommenda-
tions of the president's agricultural
As a substitute, it accepted a pro-
posal made by Representative Dick-I
inson, Republican; Iowa, for federalj
assistance without federal control
He contends it is in line with the co-
operative marketing suggestions of
the president's conference.
The committee's bill, known as the
Haugen measure, went into the dis-
card by a standing vote of 138-78. A
roll call vote on adoption of the Dick-
inson subsitute will be the first order
of business tomorrow.
Chairman Haugen of the agricul-
ture committee predicted that the
Dickinson proposal would not prevail.
It was put over today, he said by a'
coalition of Democrats and "insur-
gents," who undoubtedly, he added,
would support in a record vote. I
The Dickinson proposal was approv-
ed by the House after an unsuccessful
attempt had been made to substitute
the Curtis-Aswell cooperative market-
ing bill, which has been before Con-I
gress for a year or more. It was
thrown out, however, on a point of

University of Michigan Kitchen
ported Successful, But in
Need of Aid


Tuesday, March 10, was the date I
set last night by the Student council
for the Student Friendship drive,
whose object will be the collection of
funds for starving studentsin Europe.
The drive conducted on the can~pus
last spring for this purpose netted
more than $4,000. With this fund, at
University of Michigan kitchen was
maintained at Kiev for a period of
three months.
The campaign in March will be
launched under the direction of an
executive committee composed of
members of the Student council and
of representatives from various other
campus organizations. Those who
will serve in this capacity are:
Alfred B. Connable, '25, general
chairman, Tyler Stevens, '25, chair-.
man, Philip Wagner, '25, William
Roesser, '25, John G. Garlinghouse,
'25, Thomas J. Donahue, '25L, E. Ar-
den Kirschner, '25, Perry M. Hayden,
'25, Margaret Dixon, '25, Jane Gibson,
'25, Eugene L Dunne, '25, and Thomas
Cavanaugh, '27L.
Miss Quayle, field secretary for the
Student Friendship fund, who actively'
participated in the organization of
the drive last spring, will arrive in
Ann Arbor in March to again devote'
her efforts in support of the cause.
Information gained from workiers
in the field indicate that the Univer-
sity of Michigan kitchen was highly
successful, but also point to the fact.
that while conditions are less acute
in some parts of Europe, the situation
at Kiev has undergone little change
and still demands outside aid.
The exact quota necessary for the
maintainance- of . the kitchen during
the critical period of the coming year
has not yet been allotted to Michigan.
Prof. J. R. Hayden of the political
science department spoke on "The
New Cabinet" before the Reputlican
club at its regular meeting held last'
night at the Union. In discussing the
present cabinet, Professor. Hayden
stated that it was not inspiring and
that it had a conservative makeup.
He remarked that there was a great
deal of administrative ability and con-
siderable practical power residing in
the present members.
At the meeting last night, the pro-
gram for the remainder of the year
was decided upon. It is planned to I
have a faculty member, one who is
interested in political affairs, to ad-
dress the club at each session. In ad-
dition, a member will prepare a pa-
per on some political situation and de-

To Nominate
Judicial Body
Fraternities that are members of
the Interfraternity council will sub-
mit the names of faculty members and
resident alumni as nominees for po-
sitions on the judiciary committee at
the special meeting of the Council to
be held at 4 o'clock this afternoon in
room 302 of the Union. Drawing by
lot for places in the five groups pro-
vided for in the new constitution will
also take place at this meeting.
The judiciary committee of the
council, according to the constitution,
will consist of five students, one from
each of the groups, two faculty mem-
iers to be chosen from a list of 10
selected by the council, and two resi-
dent alumni to be chosen by the Dea
of Students from a group of 10 nam d
by the council.
The new constitution, in an effort I
to make the division of offices fair
to everyone concerned, provides that
the president be chosen from the first
group, the secretary from the second,
and the treasurer from the third.
From each of the last two groups,
one member will be selected to serve
on the judiciary committee. At the
end of each year, the first group will
become the fifth, and each of the other
groups will move up one place.
Officers of the council stress the
importance of all fraternities that are
members of Interfraternity council
sending two representatives to this
meeting, so that the grouptarrange-
ment may be completed at this time.

Of Failures,
Claims Hibben
New York, Feb. 25.-(By A. P.)-
Dr. John Grier Hibben, president of
Princeton university, addressing 255
fathers who have sons there, said to-
day that moving pictures, possession
of automobiles, too great indulgence
in extra-curricular activities, and the
over-generosity of parents were. the
causes contributing to the failure of
Dr. Hibben told those attending the
"Father's Lun*eon" given by the
Princeton club of New York that
many parents were puttin,g too great
temptation in the way of their sons
by slipping into their pockets "a big
fat roll of money."
"Our boys at Princeton, many of
them, not all of them, of course, be-
cause many fathers are educating their
boys at a great sacrifice, have too
much money given them by their par-
ents," Dr. Hibben said.
Fathers should see to it, he contin-
ued, that their boys do not indulge
"in that luxury of having an automo-
bile at any time, day or night," that
they do not attend movies too fre-
quently, and that they make a "proper
distribution of their time," between
studies and outside activities.

Dissenters Are Now Safe in Ohio, is
Opinion of Governor's
Indianapolis, Ind., Feb. 25.-(By A.
P.)-Eighteen Democratic members of
the Indiana senate bolted that body
today, seeking by their action to pre-
vent the passage of a gerrymander
bill which they declared would react
against their party in the second Indi-
ana congressional district
Reports were received tonight that
15 of -the bolters were at Dayton,
Ohio, and Jerome Brown, principal
door keeper of the Senate departed for
that city armed with a mandate from
the Senate to arrest the fugitives.
Emulating the Rhode Island Repub-
licans who performed a similar coup
several months ago,.the Indiana Dem-
ocrats left the city secretly and for
several hours were the object of an
intensive search by Senate officials.
Three of the Democrats were reported
to have been in Indianapolis tonight,
but Mr. Brown and his deputies have
not succeeded in locating thenm.
Republican members of the Senate
declared tonight that indictments
against the fugitives would be sought
in the Marion county criminal court
tomorrow, under a law which pro-
vides a fine of $1,00'0 for legislators
who wilfully refuse to vote or attend
sessions of the general assembly.
Indictments for the absent Demo-
crats, Senator Hodges, Republican,
Gary, pointed out, would make them
fugitives from justice and their ex-
tradition wouldbe asked. Whether
extradition would be granted -was un-
certain, Senator Hodges admitted.
The Democrats were absent from
the Senate chamber throughout the
day, and thereby broke the quorum
necessary for transaction of business.
'They apparently left Indianapolis
early in the afternoon, heading for
the Ohio line.
The disaffection of the Democrats
was first manifest at yesterday after-
noon's session, when they failed to
appear at the hour for convening,
later assembled upon assurance that
the bill to which they objected would
not be called up for passage. They
again failed to appear this morning,
but no action was taken by the Re-
publicans until afternoon, when the
minority members were still absent.
At the afternoon session, a mandate
was issued to the chief door keeper
to arrest the absentees and compel
their attendance. Service of the man-
date was delayed, according to James
Nejdl, president pro tem of the Sen-
ate, who told the Republican mnembers
{ this afternoon that Mr. Brown, the
door keeper, had refused to obey the
Senate instructions. , Mr. Brown de-
clared that he was not familiar with
the procedure in such cases, and that
this had delayed his actioi.
While Mr. Brown was conferring
with other state officials the Demo-
crats apparently made their escape.
Late this evening the door keeper ac-
acepted the offer of members
of the Marion county horse thief
detective association to assist in the
search for the runaway senators.
Members of the association scoured
local hotels and reported to their
chief, Charles L. Riddle, that some of
the Democrats were in the city, but
f they were unable to say how many.
The gerrymander bill to which the

Democrats objected would remove
Lawrence county from the third con-
gressional district which is normally
Democratic, and place it in the secs
ond district, which has been classed
by politicians as doubtful.
Senator W. K. Penrod, Republican,
Loogootee, author of the measure, con-
e ceded that Lawrence county, with its
e strong Republican vote, would be ma-
r terially helpful in swinging the sec-
e and district into the Republican col-
e umn.
- Columbus, Ohio, Feb. 25. (By A. P.)
" -The 15 Indiana senators who ran
t away today because they didn't want
a to vote on a gerrymander bill are safe
s as long as they remain in Ohio. This
