Britain, 1904; Railroads of U. S.,
1913; Capital Investments in Other
Lands, 1909 and 1910; Savings and
the Social Welfare, 1911; and A Per-
manent League of INations, 1918.

Classical Music and Old Michigan
Songs Will Contrast With
Lively Pieces
As a last addition to the program
for the Glee Club contest to be held
at 8:15 o'clock tonight in Hill audi-
torium, Wolcott's Wolverines, the reg-
ular Union orchestra, has been en-
gaged to play popular numbers. Be-
sides this and the Glee Club itself,
a special trio, with Philip La Rowe
at the piano and two violins, will
present several selections. The Mid-
night Sons Quartette and the regular
Varsity Quartette will also appear.
"We have tried to chose a program
which will appeal to the students as
well as the faculty and townspeople,
and I believe we will' be distinctly
uccessful in this," said Mr. Theodore
Harrison of the School of Music; who
irects the club. "We will of course
present several college songs, begin-
ning with 'Laudes Atque Carmina,'
ung off-stage, followed by the 'Var-
iity,' and the 'Victors.' Then the Mid-
iight Sons will present any old thing;
My Lady Chloe,' a negro song and a
parody on 'Old King Cole' will follow,
ung by the whole club."
Dwight Steere will play an organ
solo, a song dedicated to the American
Legion called the "Hymn of Glory,"
after which Bizet's Toreador )song
Prom Carmen, with Barre Hill, '26,
Loing the solo work, will be sung by
s1 fifty-fivemen.
The Trio will give the last numbers
efore the intermission. The second
part of the program is made up simi-
iarly, w".h popular pieces contrasted
with the classical, with orchestra
nusic set against a group of old Michi-
gan songs, among which will be 'The
Bum Army,' with its Ypsi chorus and
its Ypsi yell. And last of all will
ome the 'Yellow and Blue.
Ticket sales have been more suc-
cessful than expected, according to
Edward Murane, '25. Members of the
Freshman Glee club as well as mem-
bers of the Varsity organization have
been selling tickets on the campus
during'the past few days, while sales
at the book stores, at the Union desk
and the University music house have
gone well. Murane estimates that the
attendance tonight will exceed 3500
Mr. Harrison will personally con-
duct part of the program tonight, with
Dwight Steere '26, accompanist,
Philip La Rowe, '25, will play for
Robert Berman, '26M, and Herman
Wise, '25, in the trio.
The Midnight Sons Quartette consists
of Charles Higley, '25, Earnest Brown-
bridge, '25, Lyman Bright, '25, and
Willard Spanagel, '25E. The Varsity
quartet, which is distinct from the

Stockholm, March 25.-According to
an announcement of the Nobel Prize
foundation, this year's Nobel prize
winners will receive 118,165 kroner, or
about $31,936 each. The sum which
is awarded is determined for each

Last year the amount received was
116,718 kroner for each winner. Presi-

of 133,000 kroner.
When first distributed in 1901, the
amount was 150,782 kroner, and as
late as 1915 was as high as 149,000
kroner. President Roosevelt in 1906
received about 140,000 kroner which
was the average for the 1902-1912

University Committee Forecasts
Reduction In Appropriation Bill

Lansing, March 25.-The house uni-

the University of Michigan building
appropriation bill from $3,192,700 toi
about $1,800,000, Rep. Loomis K.
Preston of Berrien, chairman, said
today. A meeting of the committee
was to be held this afternoon to con-;
sider the measure.

Shirley W. Smith, secretary of the!
university, and members of the board
of regents appeared before the ways
'and means committee today to urge
favorable action, when it reaches the
house, on the senate bill to remove
the $3,000,000 limitation on the uni-
versity mill tax appropriation.
They explained that last year the

off for two or thm'ee months many
companies will be disrupted he be-
lieves. Men will leave for other cities,
the usual shifts in personnel will take
place and when drills are resumed'
the roll calls may in some instances
be nothing more than a jumbled mass
of names. This fear of disruption
of the organization, he asserted, might

illegal because it would have subvert-
ed the power of Congress in its right1
to make appropriations for the navy.
