To Arrive In Morning
Among the institutions which will

oration of America, whih will open
for a three-day session here tomorrow,
is the German Student's Cooperative
association, composed largely of Ger-
man university students. Heinrich
Drier of Dansig, Germany, and Erich
Pfeiffer of Stutgartt, Germany, who
are in Detroit at the present time,
will act as delegates from the foreign
organizations at the Ann Arbor con-
Students will arrive here tomorrow

the sessions of the federation. Call-
fornia will be represented by dele-
gates from several universities and
colleges of the Pacific coast state. A
total of more than 160 leading col-
leges and universities are sending men
or women student delegates, the co-
educational institutions to be repre-
sented by both.
Arrive Tomorrow
The delegates will begin arriving to-

dent council and other students and

tration. All students having automo-
biles who can assist in the reception

The purpose of the Federation
which will open its second annual
convention here tomorrow was re-~
cently outlined by the executive com-
mittee of the organization following
its permanent formation a year ago
at the Student World Court confer-
once held at Princeton, N. J. The
specific aims are as follows:
1. To achieve a spirit of coopera-
tion among the students of different
colleges throughout the country to the
end that the experience of one shall!
inure to the advantage of all.
2. To develop understanding be-
tween the students of American and
foreign countries.
3. To further an intelligent student
opinion on questions of national and
international importance.
The Federation has been endorsed
by men prominent in national life and
educational centers. Among those
who have expressed themselves as
heartily in favor of the new organi-
zation are John W. Davis, the Demo-
cratic nominee for President of the
Uniteda States in 1924, President Ray
Layman Wilbur of Leland Stanford
university, and Manley O. iludson,
Bemis professor of international law!
at Harvard.
Daivis Is Gratified
In commenting upon the Federation
and its purpose Mr. Davis said:
"I am glad to avail myself of the
opportunity to endorse the foundation
of the National Student federation. It
is gratifying, indeed, to find the youth
of our land manifesting a deep inter-
cst in the development of an intelli-!
gent influence on questions of na-
tional importance and the fostering
of an enduring world peace. If these
worthy purposes are kept constantly
in view, the Federation cannot fail to
wield a very helpful influence on pub-~
lic opinion. I wish the Federation
every success, with an ever-widening
sphere of usefulness."
Prof. E. R. Sunderland of the Law
School, will spend the rest of this
week in New York city attending a
meeting of the American Bar associa-
tion committee on Jurisprudence and
Law Reform, of which he is a member.
This committee, under the present
chairmanship of Henry W. Taft, bro-

ther of the chief justice of the United
States Supreme Court, is charged, by
the national organization, with the!
duty of proposing and supporting na-
tional legislation for the improvement
of the administration of justice. The

week-end, the last touches on this
year's production are in the process of
completion. The Opera now practical-
ly awaits the curtain at its initial per-
formance at the Whitney theater,
Monday night.
All of the costumes, with the ex-
ception of gowns for a single number,
are now here, and most of the trap-
pings have arrived from Chicago, in-
eluding the 400 pairs of shoes to be
worn in the production, and most of

More costumes will be worn in this
year's Opera than in any previous
production, the equipage of the com-
pany on it vacation itinerary actually
requiring 57 trunks for the costumes
exclusive of the personal wardrobes of
the members of the cast. The "wom-
en" of the choruses will make 15 com-
plete changes of costume and the men
will make 8 during the course of each
The plot and settings of "Front
Page Stuff" afford a more colorful
production this year than the Opera
has ever attempted. In the second
act, the "Lady of the Snows" number
is the most lavish ever attempted in
any Opera. In this number, whih in-
ludes a dance by 16 snowmen, and, a
specialty ballet chorus, remarkable
ighting effects, one or two of which
have never been employed before, will
be made possible through the use of
a variety of costume material.
The "Lady of the Snows" parade
gowns in this number, all in white,
are of lace, contrasted with pearls and
silver. The white fur, velvet and
rhinestones of this scene together
the elaborate and beautiful head-
dresses, will combine to make this an
unusually spectacular number. The
full length, white satin, ballet cos-
tumes, with skirts of imported French
glazed tarleton, will aid in this light-
ing effect through their changing ap-
pearance under different colors. Sev-
eral gowns in the lace number are
direct copies of those intthe Follies

studio of Lester.
In "The Friendly Gaie of Golf"
number, in which both the women'
and men's chorus and the specialty
dancers take part, with the leading
lady, the "women of the chorus will
wear smart, Parisian golf dresses, in
white and tangerine, embroidered in
white and black. The six specialty
dancersnwill wear similar creations,
but of different color combinations,
ranging in pastel shades of green,
tiirquois, lavender, alsace, pink and
yellow. William M. Lewis, '29, the
leading lady, will wear an original
imported Paris model in this number.
The "Rose Waltz" number will
gown the women's chorus in costumes
of rose and pink tones, trinmed with
myriads of yards of pink .ostrich.
The "Style Parade," featuring the
authentic changes in style from 1990
to 1930, will include the full period
shirt of 1900, its jahea aid jaunty

of 1914 with its daring side slit, the

Another number unusually pic-
turesque, will be a specialty number
featuring mediaeval costumes of varie-
gated and harmonizing colors with
appliques of contrasting motifs, offset
in rhinestone and silver trimming.
Still other , costumes of particular
splendor will be those worn by the
women's chorus in one number of solid
gold frisette, coral trimmed, and
modelled after the latest Paris models.
These will be used by the chorus for
the first time in any stage presenta-
