Two Act Musical Comedy By Davies
And Everett Will Use Many
Costume Novelties
* Marking the 20th annual production
of Mimes, the ninth Union opera to be
staged by E. Mortimer Shuter, and the
culmination of 15 weeks' extensive
preparation, "Tambourine" will make
its debut at 8:15 o'clock tomorrow
night at the Whitney theater. Per-
formances will be given every nighti
this week except Saturday, when
there will be a matinee presentation,
for the particular benefit of students,
faculty, and toWnspeople. On Dec. 18
the opera will go on the road, giving
15 performances in 13 cities through-
out the middle West and East.
"Tambourine" was written by
Walker Everett, '26, and Valentine
Davies, '27, while all of the music was
composed by Milton Peterson, '27LL
The dances were arranged by Roy
Hoyer, of "Stepping Stones," and the
costumes created by Lester, of Chi-
cago, excepting those in the pro-
logue which were designed by Dor-
othy Stone.
Opera Has Two Aets
"Tambourine" is a musical comedyt
written in two acts and a prologue.,
The latter is played at the camp of a1
gypsy witch in a mountain pass
abroad. The village square of Slavon-
ia, an imaginary Balkan kingdom, isI
the setting of act I. The great hall int
the king's palace is the scene of actc
II. A captivating princess, who joins
a gypsy band on the day of her sched-
uled marriage to the king, is the prin-;
cipal character, and a pleasing loveq
affair develops when she falls in love
with the captain of the king's guards.1
Comedy is intermingled with the ap-
pearance of an American adventuress,
and ensuing situations afford the
clever development of a stronger plot
than the opera usually has enjoyed.
With a larger company this year
than has ever presented the opera,
and settings which make possible the
most colorful stage effects, Lester,
stated last night that "Tambourine"
is beyond questelon "the largest and I
most elaborate amateur production In
the world, and by far the most pre-
tentious of any Union opera, thor-
oughly equipped in every detail."
Novel Costume Featured
Among the costume novelties to-
morrow night will be the red jeweled
heels worn by Dan Warne '27, the
j leading woman in the "Girl in White,"
which were brought here by Lester
from the 1925 Paris exposition; the
new personality masks worn on the
gowns in the "Rose" dance, which
are small doll faces moulded by the
only such machine in the country;
the vilite illumination process used
in the "Mystics," which Lester claims
is newer and more powerful than
radium treated gowns.; the hosiery
and tights all of silk, with the excep-
tion of those in one comedy number,
which is rarely attempted in the cos-
tuming of any company; and the 24
pairs of white kid boots in the "Mys-
tics," the equal of which are found
in only one show in the country, "The
Student Prince," accoridng to Lester.
The dress rehearsal yesterday ter-
minated at midnight at the Whitney
theater. Messrs. Shuter, Lester, and
Hoyer directed the last touches. Aft-
er rehearsing the entir~e production
more than half a dozen times, the
opera was pronounced in readiness

for the premiere.
A few tickets remain for the open-
ing performance, which from indica-
tions, will be attended by one of the
largest audiences of the week. The
box office sale will be conducted again
at the Whitney tomorrow afternoon.

Russian Violinist1



Cecilia Hansen

Numbers By Kreisler, Tschaikovsky,
And Scott Included In Miss
Hansen's Prograin
Marking her first appearance in
Ann Arbor, Cecilia Hansen, noted Rus-
sian violinist, will appear at 8 o'clock
tomorrow night in Hill auditorium as
the second number in the Extra-Con-
cert series under the auspices of the
University School of Music.
Miss Hansen, following a brilliant
success in Russia and continental Eu-
rope, made her debut in America with .
the Chicago Symphony orchestra un-I
der the direction of Frederick Stock.'
Immediately she entered upon a coast
to coast tour with unusual critical'
acclaim, and filled engagements with
the Chicago, Boston, St. Louis, New
York Philharmonic, State Symphony
and Metropolitan Opera House orches-
tras, the Chicago Symphony re-book-
ing her for another pair of concerts
within the same season.
Richard Aldrich, music critic for
the New York Times, said of her
New York debut, "Cecilia Hansen
plays like a man, but yet a woman.
Those present are likely to remember
the occasion, for Miss Hansen will
not long remain a stranger to the
greater public of New York. In five
minutes she captured her house."
Miss Hansen, of Russian birth and'
Danish ancestry, is a pupil, along
with Heifitz and Seidel, of Leopold
Auer, who has trained so many world-
famous artists. She was also asso-
ciated in Leningrad with the great
group which included Stanislavsky
and Feodor Chaliapin.
The program tomorrow evening will
include a group of three numbers ar-
ranged for the violin by Fritz Kreis-
ler, the Tschaikovsky Concerto in D
major, Dance and Lotus Land 1y Cy-
ri Scott, and the Vitali Chaconne.
Miss Hansen will be assisted by Mr.
Boris Zakharoff at the piano.

the University, was removed to the!
University hospital yestgrday as a re-
sult of injuries sustained in an auto-
mobile accident while enroute to Lan-

seriously injured, but later develop-
ments made it necessary to move him
to the hospital for treatment of his
back and spine.
Mr. Campbell has been confined to
his home since the accident, and is
not expected to resume his work for
more than a week.

appearance of Mr. Villard in Ann Ar-
bor since his address to the Faculty

In his talk, Mr. Villard will deal
with what he considers some of the
most fundamental modern tendencies
of the press and their attendant dan-
gers to the public and nation. He is
a recognized liberal, and the knowl-
edge of his subject has been gained
through life-long associations in the
journalistic profession. With one ex-
ception, Mr. Villard comes from the
oldest family of journalists in the
United States being a grandson of,
William Lloyd Garrison, the promi-
nent abolitionists of the Civil war
days. His latest writings are a ser-
ies of articles treating the subject of
moder~n journalism, the first of which
appeared in the Century on "The
Press and the President."

in 1872. He was graduated from Har-
vard university in 1893, assisting in

journalistic career started in 1896
when he became a reporter for the
Philadelphia Press. In the next year
he transferred to the New York Eve-
ning Post, doing editorial writing, and
later becoming managing editor and
owner of the paper. He sold the Eve-
ning Post in 1918 and purchased the
Nation. He is also owner of The Nau-
tical Gazete of New York.
Political Advisor In War
During the war Mr. Villard was
prominent among President Wilson's
advisors, being at one time considered
for appointment to the cabinet to su-
percede Colonel House. Politically he
is an independent, having supported
Robert M. La Follette in the last pres-
idential campaign.
Mr. Villard is nationall known as
the author of a number of books,
among them being "John Brown-A
Biography 50 Years After," which wasl
published in 1910; "Germany Em-
battled" written in 1915, for the pur-
l ose of stating the German 'case and
showin. why American opinion in the
main was condemnatory of Germany
and favorable to the Allies; and
"Newspapers and Newspaper Men", in
1923, presenting sketches of the most
widely read metropolitan dailies. He
has also written a number of mono-
graphs on the "Early History of Wall
Street", and "The Germah Imperial

WASHINGTON, Dec. 5.-Still facing
a final decision as to their relation-
ship with the insurgents of their
party, Republicans of the House and
Senate took final steps today to or-
ganize the two Houses on Monday.
Senate Republicans held their pre-
session conference without even dis-
cussing the question of whether Sen-
ator La Follette of Wisconsin is to be
treated as one of their group. Al-
though invited to this conference, Mr.
La Follette absented himself and
while it was in progress he was in
conference with the Republican in-
surgents of the Wisconsin delegation
in the House.

an all-day debate, the directors quick-
ly got down to matching dates for
next fall's football games.

Some of the temples, built of masonry,
rise on their artificial pyramids 175

Beautifully ornate decoration also

"We cannot ask the football players

The only vote involving a question
of amateur status was one todrein-

Purdue, who, during his high school
days, had accepted $5 to play in. a

The faculty members decided to ask
