Musical Comedy To Have Prologue
With Costumes Created By Mimes
Sole Woman Member
Unique dances, arranged and exe-
cuted to the strains of. more than 30
original musical numbers, appear as
one of the distinguishing features of
"Tambourine", the 1925 Union opera
which, will open at the Whitney
theater Dec. 7 to play for one week,
before beginning on its extensive road
trip throughout the Middle West and'
East. Ballad music and classic love
themes, intermingled with catchy
tunes of lighter character, stamp the
20th annual Mimes' production as one
containing more originality than any
previous undertaking of the honorary
dramatic society.
Woman' Creates Costumes
The musical comedy this year will
have a prologue in which the cos-
tumes have been created by Dorothy
Stone, the only woman member of
Mimes. A joker and clog dance by
members of the women's chorus will
be a feature of the introductory act.
The Tambourine dance is the out-
standing comedy number of the first
act in which the costumes worn will
represent a varied array of rag dolls.
"Romany Rose", also in this act, with
a chorus of 48, Is expected to be the
song hit of the show with Dan War-
ner, '27, leading woman, and Russell
Gohring, '27, male lead, engaged in
part singing. Gypsy costumes, each
with a garland of roses, worn by the
entire chorus produce a colorful ef-
fect in this numbe.
"April Day" is another leading num-
ber in Act I. In this 24 women are
arrayed in different costumes of deli-
cate pastel shades. The number.
closes with the chorus carrying um-
brellas and torrents of rain falling
over the entire stage.
One of the .main numbers in the
second act is the "Rendezvous", the
musical theme being a popular waltz.
The men's chorus here is dressed in
military uniforms of a gay wine color.
"Fine Feathers" in this act consists
of a display of costumes, each repre-
senting a holiday season of the year.
Barre Hill, '26, one of the leading
singers, is featured in this number.
The Shuffle dance, with 24 women,
and the Xylophone dance, of 16 wo-
men each, playing a xylophone, are
other dance numbers prominent in
Act II.
The "Palace Dance" is a fast chorus
number by 24 women each wearing
an imported wig of spun glass, and
the "Fan Waltz" with eight people is
a fascinating radium number.
"Victors" Ends Drill (
Warner, dressed in a costume of
white fur, is again prominent in the
"Girl In White" number supported by,
the men's chorus of 24. An old-!
fashioned minuet is the theme of the
"Cameo" number in which the voice
of Hill again plays an important part.
"The Mystics" with 16 men dressed.
in radium costumes of maize and
blue, is the patriotic number of the
show. It consists largely of a fan-
tastic drill, reaching a climax with
"The Victors".
"Tambourine" has the largest mu-
sical score of any opera ever pre-
sented by Mimes. There is scarcely
a display, a scene or a number with-
out music accompanying.
The 1925 opera is a departure from

productions of the past in that it is
not the review type of musical comedyE
but is for the most part a comic
opera with a strong plot. The chief
characteristics of the Michigan opera
will, however, be found again in "Tam-

Contest For J-Hop
Decorations Will
Conclude Tuesday
Selection of sketches submitted in
the J-Hop contest began last week,
and it is expected that all designs from
students, art clubs, and commercial
designers will be received before next
Tuesday Dec. 1, when final judging of
the plans begins.
Two designs will be chosen by fac-
E ulty members and the J-Hop sub-com-
mittee of which Kenneth A. Michels
is chairman, and then recommended
to the regular J-Hop committee which
will make the final selection.

Princess Cantacuzene, gifted writer
and lecturer, and granddaughter of
Gen. U. S. Grant, will be the fifth
speaker on the season lecture course
of the Oratorical association. She will
lecture on "My Life, Here and There",
Dec. 8, in Hill auditorium.
Princess Cantacuzene was born in
the White House in Washington dur-
ing the presidency of her grandfather,
at which time her father, General
Frederick Dent Grant, was aide de
camp to General Sheridan.
In 1899, four years after the death
of ex-President Grant, the appoint-
ment as minister to Austria-Hungary
was offered to the princess' father by'
President Harrison. This appoint-
ment having been accepted, General
Grant, accompanied by his family,
made his home in Vienna. It was
there, at the age of 16, that Princess
Cantacuzene (then Miss Grant) made
her debut. At a state ball, attended
by the foremost leaders of the Aus-
trian and Hungarian nobility, the dip-
lomatic corps and visiting foreign!
celebrities, the youthful debutante
was presented to theremperor, Fran-
cis Joseph, who expressed much as-1
tonishment at her familiarity with thej
Viennese dialect, and complimented
her on her knowledge of the language.
She was married to Prince Michael
Cantacuzene in the autumn of 1899 at

months' trip into the Arctic made for
the purpose of continuing his scien-

Connmittee Will Consider Proposition
Behind Closed Doors-ope To
Settle Matter Soon
(By Associated Press)
HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 28.-Gov-
ernor Pinchot of Pennsylvania today
laid before the wage negotiating com-
mittee of the United Mine Workers a
plan for the settlement of the present
anthracite controversy and for the
early resumption of operations which
have been at a standstill since Sept 1.
Will Meet Today
The scale committee of 'the three
union districts in the hard coal field
immediately took the proposals under
consideration and after a brief session
behind closed doors adjourned until 2
o'clock tomorrow.
The governor set forth eleven points
in this plan. These included:
Establishment of a "board of inves-
tigation" and award "to be chosen by
the operators and miners," this board
to determine whether or not increased
wages can be paid without increasing
coal prices and to determine the
amount of increase if one is justified.
A modified form of "check-off" wit-
out full union recognition by which
operators would honor voluntary as-
signement of worker's wages for
union dues up to $14 a year.
Equalization of wages by the an-
thracite conciliation board established
under the Roosevelt settlement of
No increase in coal prices by reason
of the new agreement beyond those
scheduled for 1925.
A five-year agreement.
Termination of the present suspen-
sion and immediate resumption of
Operators Invited
Both operators' and miners' repre-
sentatives had been invited to take
part in the meeting but none of the
operators were present. Maj. W. W.
Inglis, chairman of their negotiating
committee wiring it was impossible to
get his committee together.
After the meeting at which Gover-
nor Pinchot submitted his plan he
forwarded a copy of it to Major Inglis
with a letter referring it to the oper-
ators "for such consideration as you
may desire to give it." For the first
time in connection with such negotia-
tions, a third group representing the
consumers and business interests of
the anthracite region was represented.
It included a mediation committee
of the Scranton Chamber of Commerce
and heads of business organizations
in Hazelton and Wilkes-Barre. They
gave their endorsement to the plan.
