Devise Dance Routines llor
"Front Page Stuff"
During the recent rehearsals of
"Front Page Stuff", the annual Union
opera which will be presented at the
Whitney theater beginning Monday
night, Dec. 6, the dances and musical
numbers have been arranged by E.
Mortimer Shuter, opera director, for
a final completion of these numbers.
The orchestra has been working on
the arrangement of the scores for
several weeks, rehearsing the vocal
numbers with the principal soloists
and choruses in order that the pro-

"Propaganda of the communist
movement is vastly ingenious, but all
the churches in Russia are filled to
overflowing with praying people; re-
ligion is the one thing which holds
Russia together," stated Chester Har-
vey Rowell '88, in the course of his
lecture on revolutionary Russia ycs-
terday afternoon in Natural Science
auditorium. The former student of the
university is a regent of the Univer-
sity of California and was at one time
editor of the Fresno Republican. Of
late he has been interested in interna-
tional affairs and a student of the
work accomplished by the League of
Nations. His lecture was made up of
a recital of the different phases of red
Russia as he has observed them in the
course of his stay there.
,'iuntioin Is Paradoxical
Mr. Rowell said that from the min-
ute that one entered that country he
was immediately impressed with the
great contrasts which are apparent
everywhere, and that for this reason
it was difficult to understand Russia

The musical numbers of the show

and lyrics by Dorothy Stone, who is
co-starring with her father, Fred

Trained Since Spring
The choruses of "Front Page Stuff"
have been trained in their routines
since last spring, and since the earlyt
fall have been practicing two hours
daily under the direction of Lewis. A
departure from the chorus arrange-
ments of past years is that six spec-
alty dancers have been added to the
usual women's and men's choruses.
The "Adorable Girl" number by
Lewis, is sung by Robert Graham, 29, 1
who plays the part of Isidore, the i
poet, while the men's chorus continue
with a clog dance, followed in turn
by the specialty dancers who perform
a high kicking and eccentric dance.
This number is featured in the show,
being sung in the finale by Russell
Gohring, '27, and Lewis, with a final
reprise of the dance of the specialty,

bers, the former being sung by Rus-!
sell Gohring with a dance by theS
mixed chorus following, while "My
Lady of the Snows", sung by Graham,
is the feature of the second act.
A novelty dance of 16 snow men
is followed by a ballet by the special-
ty dancers and a tge dance by Lewis.
This is the first time such a combina-
tion has been used in a Union opera.
The "Reporters frpm the Press" by{
the men's chorus and the "Valentine"
dance by the mixed chorus are two
varied numbers of the typical musicalj
comedy type. "A Friendly Game of1
Golf" sung by Lewis and the mixed
chorus with a dance by the special
girls is one of the most unique and
graceful routines ever created by Roy
B oyer, according to Mr. Shuter.
"Play Us a Tune" sung by B. Lorain
Norton, '27, in the character of an;
Italian baron, contains a dance by
-Lewis, and the men's chorus is con-

PEKING, Nov. 29.-With its enemies
organizing for a concerted attack up-
on it, the Peking government once
more is without a cabinet or recogniz-
ed head. In telegrams sent toay to
the war lords who appointed them
and dictated their acts, the cabinet
members declared the determination
to quit the responsibilities of office.
Daily reports have come to Peking
of the successes of the armies of the
Cantonese government, of one province
after another going over to, the south-
erners whose battle cry is one gov-
ernment for all China, and China for
the Chinese. In addition the Kuomin-
chun (national army) of the Peking
government, deposed last April, is
said to be preparing to march from
Kansu province to join the Cantonese
troops coming north after their vic-
tories in the Yangtze provinces over
the forces of Marshals Wu Pei Fu and
Sun Chuan Fang, not long ago styled
dictators respectively of central and
eastern China.
Shifts Responsibility
Faced with this situation, without
power to enforce its orders, even in
the vicinity of Peking, and with an
empty treasury, the cabinet quit as a
body and requested the war lords to
assume responsibility for the govern-
ment which they actually controlled.
LONDON, Nov. 29.-"The gravest
crisis since the Boxer rebellion," is
how British correspondents in China
describe the present situation there as
their concern is fully reflected in of-
ficial quarters.
The government, however, maintain-
ing its wary attitude which has pre-
vailed throughout the prolonged
Chinese troubles, still declines to be
harried into a precipitate action based
on what possibly may turn out to be
nadequate information.
Macdonald Speaks
Former Premier J. Ramsay Mac-
donald, making his first appearance in
the House of Commons today since a
holiday for his health, asked Foreign
Secretary Sir Austen Chamberlain to
give the house information on affairs
in China.
Sir Austin outlined the serious de-
velopments which have occurred in
Hankow during the past week growing
out of a threatened general anti-
foreign strike and boycott there.
. Apparently the government has no
present intention of' ordering further
naval units to China. T'welve de-
stroyers and an aircraft carrier, sent
to China from Malta in September, are
ready for eventualities in addition to
the regular river control.
. May Require U. S.- Action
It is understood that the situation
will be left largely to the chietnaval
commanders on the scene and it is
hoped that if any action should be-
come necessary, it shall be of inter-
national character. There is con-
siderable interest as to what action
the United States shall take if the
threatened general strike should af-
feet America.
The advance of the Cantonese forces
and the resignation of the Peking gov-
ernment have resulted in close atten-
tion to this phase of the entire Chinese
situation. 'Whether the Cantonese
government can become a concrete
governing body with which the for-
eign nations can properly deal is a
question on which opinions differ
The prevailing view and that ac-
cepted generally in official quarters is
that the Cantonese ' government,
should it gain control of all China, is
too completely Bolshevist in its in-
tentions and aims to be trusted and
that it will force an anti-foreign pol-
icy, including renunciation of foreign
treaties to the utmost extent.
On the other hand, the opinion in
liberal quarters favors an attempt to
negotiation with the Cantonese.
