Washington, March 12.-The one-
man filibuster conducted by Senator
Copeland, Democrat, New York,
against ratification of the treaty for-
mally recognizing Cuba's sovereignty
over the Isle of Pines was broken in
the Senate, and the Senate agreed to
vote on the Isle of Pines treaty with
Cuba not later than 3 o'clock tomor-
Beginning soon this afternoon, when
the Senate met, Mr. Copeland contin-
ued speaking until 8 o'clock, when he
yielded to Senator Shipstead,, Farmer
Laborer, Minnesota, another oppon-
ent of the treaty, who began a speech
he had estimated would take up less
than an hour.
Declaring he had made his fight
"solely on priciple" for protection of
the rights of American citizens who
have settled on the island, Senator
Copeland conceded that the treaty,
which has been pending more than 20
years, would be ratified when brought
to a vote.
Republicans Defer Decision on World
Court Following
Washington, March 12.-(By A. P.).
-Developments today with respect to
the world court issue, the Isle of
Pines treaty, and the Warren nomina-
tion, were believed generally at the
capitol to have upset plans of Repub-
lican leaders to end the special ses-
sion of the Senate Saturday night.
The World court question was dis-
cussed at a conference both of Demo-
crats and Republicans, with the lat-
ter deferring decision as to their
course, and the former agreeing tol
insist that the Senate make this mat-
ter a special order in the first session
of the new Congress.
The resubmission of the nomination
of Charles B. Warren to be attorney
general was not discussed at either
conference, it was stated, but leaders
on both sides were agreed that, with

Introduces Miss Jessie Bonstelle and
Her Company; Success WEL
Insure Return
As an introduction of Miss Jessie
Bonstelle and her distinguished com-
pany of players to Ann Arbor, the
American Association of University
Women with the ,co-operation of the
Michigan Theatre League are present-
ing Mrs. Richard Mansfield, widow
of the famous American actor, Rich-
ard Mansfield, in Lewis Beach's com-
edy of college manners, "The Goose
Hangs High," this afternoon at 2:15
o'clock in the Whitney theatre.
The production will be absolutely
identical with the performance now
being presented at the Bonstelle Pfay-
house, Detroit, where the play has
been held over for a three weeks'
run. Miss Bonstelle is also bringing
out the trio of musicians she uses in
Detroit, so that the exact atmosphere
may be reproduced.
Mrs. Mansfield is playing the role
of the mother, not, as was once in-
correctly reported, the more minor
part of the grandmother. Unitl her re-
tirement some years ago, Mrs. Mans-
field was known on the stage as her
husband's leading lady under the
name of Beatrice Cameron, having ap-
peared with him in the first produc-
tions in America of Isben's "Peer
Gynt," Shaw's "Arms and the Man,"
and "The Devil's Desciple," as well
as numerous Shakespearian revivals.
The curtain will rise promptly at
2:15 o'clock, as the company are pre-
senting the play tonight in Detroit as
well. Miss Bonstelle, however, will
remain in Ann Arbor to address the
American Association of University
Women at their meeting tonight in the
home of Mr. E. C. Goddard,. at 1212
Hill street.
It is understood that the Bonstelle
company will be engaged for a series
of productions next fall, should the
engagement this afternoon prove suc-
cessful. In this connection the local
committee announces that the box-
office sale has been most satisfactory,
although desirable seats are still
available at the Whitney theatre. Tick-
ets are priced at $1, $1.50, and $2.
