LOUIS GILBERT IN PLAY
William Lewis, Davis Harbaugh, Ly-
man Crane and George Randall
Will Have Principal Roles
Casting for all but a few minor roles
of the 1927 Union Opera, "The Same
To You" has been completed, and
daily rehearsals are being held for,
the principal members in order to get
the production into shape for the open-
ing performance at the Whitney the-
ater Dec. 5. The leads in the show are
not limited to one or two members of
the cast as in the past, but are more
generally distributed, due to the
changed character of the vehicle as
compared to that of former years.
"The Same To You" will constitute
the 22nd annual production of the
Mimes of the Michigan Union.
Several members of the cast of last
year's Opera, "Front Page Stuff," will
again be seen in the new show, among
them William M. Lewis Jr, '29, "lead-
ing lady" of the last opus, Thomas J.
Dougall, '-8, Vincent C. Wall, Jr., '28,
William S. Ramsey, -Jr., '28, Theodore
Skinner, '28, and W. Davis Harbaugh,
'28. Others have been taken from dif-
ferent campus activities, or have never
been in any previous production.
Samson, Gilbert In Play
Paul Samson, 28M, captain of the
varsity swimming team last year, and
Louis Gilbert, '28, a member. of the
present varsity football team will both
have leading roles. Lewis, Harbaugh,
C. Lyman Crane, '29, and George Ran-
dall, '29, will be seen in the four prin-
cipal romantic leads around which the
plot revolves. The first two appear as
the daughters of a wealthy bond brok-
er, Graham Rand, played by Samson.
Richard C. Kurvink, '29, will take the
part of Mrs. Rand, and Robert Gra-
ham, S. of M, that of a son.
All action in the second act of "The
Same To You" will take place on the
premises of a night club, the "In'digo
Isle," whose proprietor, Gus Collins, is
played by Skinner, Ramsey, Dougall,
and Wall'made up as a trio of blues
singer, "hoofer", and chorus girl,
whose untoward actions complicate
the plot. Gilbert will perform as Wig-
gles, the butler, and Robert Wetzel,
'28, has the part of a "philosophical
detective," Dr. Rudolph Bingsetter.{
"The Same To You" has for the
locale of its first act the garden of the
Rand home on Long Island,during
the progress of a charity bazaar. The
secondact is in three scenes; the first
the backstage area of the Indigo Isle
during a rehearsal, the second the
stage entrance of the club, and the
third the dance floor itself.
Plot of Stolen Bonds
The book and all lyrics for the pro-
duction were written this year by
Wall and Dougall, who will appear in
the cast, while the entire score was
composed by Lewis, who wrote most
of the music for "Front :Page Stuff".
The plot centers around anumber of
stolen bonds belonging to Rand, which
disappear during the garden paty.
Tphe theft falls on the consort of one
of Rand's daughters, through conpli-
eating circumstances, bt is atlength
traced to its proper source in an un-
derworld organization which has for
its headquarters the prominent night
club, Indigo Isle.
The introduction of the night club
into the scenes of the Opera offers an
opportunity to Mimes to display many
of the factors for which the Union
product is famous, namely costumes,
scenery and dance numbers. Lester of
Chicago, who has planned and de-
signed the costumes for most of the
past Operas, has again selected the
wardrobes for "The Same To You".

TWO JURORS REVEAL
Jurors Tell Grand Jury They Were-
Asked Probable Outcome While
Trial Was in Progress
AGENTS A RE OUN TRAIL
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8.-Jurors in-
the Fall-Sinclair criminal conspiracy
trial were approached with improper
questions within the very shadow of)
the court house, two of them disclosed
today as they became grand jury wit-
nesses in the latest of the oil scandals.
Their startling statements led fed-
eral agents on the trail of the ques-
tioners, thus far men of mystery in
a case which has furnished far more
than a 'normal share of mysteries and
sensations.*-
John J. Costinette, an elderly tailor,
and Gardener P. Grenfeld, a young
cable splicer, are the jurors who de-
dared they have been questioned be-
fore a mistrial was ordered, both as
to the probable outcome of the trial
and asked whether the trial judge,
Justice Frederick L. Siddois, was "on
the square." From the descriptions'
they gave to District Attorney Gordon
each was approached by a different
man. Whether rtheir interrogators
were Burns detectives, whose activi-
ties abruptly ended the oil trial, is the
immediate point the district attorneys
office is seeking to clear up.
Grenfeld said he was approached by
a stranger in a cigar store directly
across the street from the District of
Columbia court house.
While Grenfeld and Constinettei
were before the grand jury at separ-
ate times during the later afternoon,
C. G. Ruddy, director of the crew
shadowing the jury, and six of the
Burns operatives were called in and
lined up for possible identification by
the jurors. Apparently none was
identified as either of the mystery
men.
In the report of the Burns detectives
seized by the government in the raid
upon their headquarters there is. one
r in which Baltimore investigator H-4
reported on October 20 and ,21 that
Costinette apparently was being shad-
owed by other men.r
Besides questioning Costinette and
Grenfeld, the grand jury heard Nor-
man J. Glasscock, a juror one of the
Burns detectives said he trailed to
the Potomac flying field near Wash-
ington and there saw him in conversa-
tion with a man who drove up in a
car owned by Harris R. Pamb, a spe-'
cial assistant to the Attorney-general.

Supporters of Lodge, who had re-
fused to make a campaign, in line
with his views that an office-seeker
should not "urge"' himself on the
electorate, were confident later re-
turns would switch the lead around
to their candidate. Thby maintained
that most of the Lodge strongholiis
were yet to be heard from.
Smith Supporters Jubilant
Smith supporters were jubilant over
his early 'showing and pointed to
heavy majorities piled up in districts
where he was expected to show least
strength. They predicted final figures
would show a big plurality for Smith.
Smith based his appeal for reelec-
tion on a program of liberality in en-
forcement of the prohibition law. His
flat "wet" pronouncement was made
after he had trailed Lodge in the
primary contest by approximately
30,000 votes.
Declaring his primary showing re-
sulted from covert activities of the
Anti-saloon league and other dry or-
ganizations, Smith asserted his will-
ingness to stand or fall on a policy of
opposition to the liquor laws.
Lodge, who has held pu-blic oflice
over a 25-year period, declined to
enter into a campaign fight, a stand
he has maintained throughout his
political career. He was drafted in
the present contest and did not make
a campaign speech nor issue a writ-
ten appeal. His supporters were re-
luctant to acceptthe liquor question
as an issue and pointed out that
Lodge had never publicly endorsed
the dry movement.
Record Ballot Cast.
Indications late tonight were that a
record ballot of more than 300,000
had been cast despite inclement wea-
ther. The election passed off quietly,
only a few arrests for minor disord-
ers being made.
Heavy police guards were posted
aboutvoting booths, but there was
little call for their presence.-
Election Commissioner Richard
Reading announced that names of
several voters suspected of fraudulent
registration had been taken.
So few returns regarding the var-
ous amendments voted on today had
been tabulated late tonight that an in-
dication of the tdecisions was unavail-
able. One amendment provided for
construction of a tunnel under the
Detroit river betweennDetroit and
Windsor and another for construction
