Extension of the present ruling on
the use of automobiles by Michigan I
students to include the summer ses-
sion of the University was decided -
upon by the Board of Regents of the
University at their meeting last night. -
This addition to the present ruling
makes the use of automobiles by the
student body impossible for the whole I
year. The plan of enforcement will
be the same during the summer as
that in use during the winter.'
The Regents also decided that all 1eniJ
students who were injured in wrecks Who has resignedi as head of th-

To More Than $1,000 Mark
With more than $700 in .actual cash
on hand as the result of their two tag
days, and the group donations from
the fraternities and sororities on the
campus not tabulated, Galens, honor-
ary medical society, last night brought
its drive for funds to provide a Christ-"

hospital children to a successful
Officers of the organization are con-
fident that when the fraternity and
sorority donations have been complet-
ly counted, the total will be well over
the desired amount of $1,000. Many of
the donations from these sources will
not be made until after meetings to be
held Monday night, and since the total
sum remaining to be raised is less
than $300, those in charge of the drive
were confident last night that the de-
'sired amount will be secured.-

The success of the drive; according
to Glenn Carmichael, '28M, chairman
of the committee in charge from
Galens, will permit several permanent

regular gifts and party planned.
The two tag days attempted yester-
day and Thursday on the campus were
the first attempt ever made to raise
funds for the purpose of giving the
children at the hospital a Christmas
party. A number of large individual
donations and several fraternity dona-
tions were received before the drive
started, and on Thursday more than
$300 was raised from the sale of tags
on the campus.

GENEVA, Dee. 2-Germany today
made what was wiely interpreted as
a delicate niove for revision of the
Versailles~ treaty. This was the con-
clusion drawn from an address from
Count von Bernstorff, former German
ambassador to the United States and
now German representative at the
preparatory disarmament conference
before the security committee.
Real international security which
will reduce the possibility of conflicts
between nations implies the fixation
of frontiers which all countris can
accept, was the opinion voiced in
Garman non-official circles tonight
following upon Count von Bernstorff's
declaration that article 19 should be
given importance by the security com-
mittee in the proposed study of the
'League of Nations covenant.
This is the article which says that
the League assembly may advise re-
consideration of treaties which be-
come inapplicable. The German dele-
gate's insistence upon the inclusion
of this article was geneily felt to
point towards the Treaty of Versail-

Gargoyle Sponsoring Meeting of Men
Representing All Big Tfenr
Humor Publications
Representatives from the staffs of
the majority of the Conference school
humor magazines, as well as a few
others, are in Ann Arbor today to at-
tend the annual convention of the
Midwest College Comics association
being held at the Union.
The Michigan Gargoyle, secretary-
treasurer of the association, Is spon-
soring the convention. The program
for the meeting this morning consists
of a discussion of the advertising sit-
uation, circulation, and copyright sit-
uation. President J. M. Lansinger, of'
IItCollege Ihumor magazine, and
Donald Hoagland, of Barnhill, will de-
liver the principal address of the
lafternoon session. Andrew Johnson,
of the Chicago Phoenix, is president
of the mid-west association. A lunch-
eon and dinner is also scheduled.
The chief problem to be settled at
the sessions today is the question of
uniform advertising rates and com-
missions. Last year in the convention
held at Northwestern university, the
question confronting the m"abers
concerned the rates to be paid by Col-
lege Humor for material clipped from
the college comic monthlies. Discus-
sions are also being planned today
concerning fall circulation campaigns.
Two officers are chosen at each
convention, a president and a secre-
tary-treasurer. It is traditional that
the secretary-treasurer shall act as


Judge Praises Arguments of I'icigan
Team But Calls Ohio's Work
More Aggressive
Michigan's affirmative debate team
lost its sixth annual intercollegiateI
women's debate with Ohio last night
in Hill auditorium on the question
"Resolved that the Direct Primary
should be abolished.
On the previous evening, the nega-
tive women's team debate on the same
question at Bloomington, were de-
eated by the University of Indiana
atihirmative. It was the third women's
debate between the schools and In-
liana's second victory over Michigan.
The third leg of the triangular af-
fair between the Ohio affiirmative and
the Indiana negative was also debated
last night, the two teams meeting at
Columbus with the annual league
championship at stake as each school
had acquired one victory over Michi-
Michigan Debaters Lack Experience
Although Michigan was represented
by a totally inexperienced team in
the debate here, but one of the speak-
ers, Miriam Mitchell, '28, is graduat-
ing. The second speaker, Mary L.
Brown, '30, has two more years of
competition while the third speaker
was Pauline Winchell, '29. She, too,
is returning and should be available.
The Ohio State team was composed
of Miss Lillian Van Harlingten, Miss
Bernice Bolenbacher, and Miss Emma-
jane Berkheimer. The three spoke in
the order named.
Alternate Plan Has Strength
In commenting upon his decision,
Pro. N. J. Weiss of Albion college,
who judged the debate here, spoke
very highly of the Michigan team
especially commending them on their
delivery. He was also favorable im-
pressed with the strength of the alter-
nate plan which was offered as a sub-
stitute for the direct primary.
He rendered his decision, however,
in favor of the Ohio team because he
felt that they were the most aggres-
sive and did the best work in argu-
ment during the process of the de-
The Michigan team that made the
trip to Indiana was composed of
Laura Osgood, '28 Ed, Ruth Benfleld,

Char.'s Gann en,'30L, Refused Perna itsI
At Beginning Of Year, Breaks
Rulitig Of Regents
Because he drove ar4 automobile
after a permit had been refused to,
him, Charles Gannon, '30L, has been
suspended froui the University by the
faculty of the Law School after a
recommendation by the oflice of thet
dean of sludents. The action was
taken Thursday, though the suspen-
sion was not announced until yester-
day morning.I
Gannon, it. wBas stated, has been ap-
plying for a permit to drive a car
since last sring wlmen the automobile
ban was first announced, but was re-
fused because of the fact that the of-
fice of the dean deemed his reason to
be insufficient. He lived seven blocks
from the campus and requested the
permit on the grounds that fraternity
business demanded it.
A ter applying for a permit several
times and being refused he was appre-
hended driving a car and the suspen-
sion was the result. This is the
second case this week where a stu-
dent has faced expulsion because of
violating the auto ban, Hugh Kitchen,
'30, having been suspended on Mon-
day. These are the only two cases of
expulsion that have occurred this se-
mester, however, as far as can be
I learned.
It was alleged by University author-j
itives that Gannon, when caught, at-
tempted to deceive the officials. Thisj
fact militated against him, it was said.

Lester Of Chicago Makes Special Trip
To Fit And Alter Creations
For Cast And Chorus
"The Same To You," the 22nd an-
nual Union Opera presented by Mimes
of the Michigan Union, will move
down to the Whitney theater tonight
for the first intensive dress rehearsal
The opening performances of the pro-
duction will be given all next week
at the Whitney, beginning Monday'
night and concluding with a matmnee
and night performance on Saturday.
From now until the first curtain
rises at 8:30 o'clock Monday night
the full facilities of the Mimes and
Opera organizations will be turned
into getting the production into shape
for its short but extensive ,isason.
Ever since last spring choruses have
been rehearsing steps and routines
in the Mimes. theater, and now after
multidudinous changes, cuts, and in-
terpolations, the work of these three
groups is ready to put into costume
before the newlybuilt settings of "The
Same To You."
The full staff of directors and com-
mitteemen has been working over-
time for weeks, preparing the annual
extravaganza, and many of the tasks
are now complete. Practically all of
the publicity has been taken care of
since the opening of school in the
fall, and this has been distributed all
oeer the sections of the country
where the Opera will play and Where
there are homes of members of the
cast and choruses. This practice in
the east has led to spreading the rep-
utation of the production all over the
country, and contributing to the fame
of the Michigan Union and the Uni-
Orchestra Is Increased
Other committees, designed to look
after the extensive wardrobes of the
company, the music and selling of
printed scores, make-up, stage-nan-
agement and other activities are but
now beginning on their tasks. The

production this year is larger than
Lester, of Chicago, who is again
responsible for the costuming of the
Opera, and who has specially created
innumerable models and brought oth-
,rds from Paris for "The Same To
You," will be again in Ann Arbor to-
day to look after the fittings and al-
terings of the costumes. He was here
earliersin the semester to arrrange
for design plates in harmony with
the scenes of the show, and for spec-
ial pictures to be taken in Chicago
by the Raymor Studios. The costumes
arrived yesterday by the trunkload
including shoes, hats, stockings, aid
all other accoutrements necessary to
transform the chorus men into ladies
of the ensemble. These must all be
fitted separately by Lester, and in
some cases last minute designs must
be contrived.
For the past week the cast, which
has heretofore rehearsed separately,
has been combined with the choruses
and specialty numbers, following the
business of welding all the parts into
one show. The principals of the pro-
duction are W. Davidson Harbaugh,
'28, George Randall, '29, William M.
Lewis, Jr., '29, and C. Lyman Crane,
'29, while other leads in the cast are
Thomas J. Dougall, '28, Robert Wet-
zel, '28, Paul Samson, '30M, Louis
Gilbert, '28, Richard C. Kurvink, '29,
William Ramsay, '28, and ' Harlan

Cristy, '29.
Graham I Sing
Dougall, with Vincent C. Wall, Jr.,
'28, are authors of- the show, and
Lewis and Crane are responsible for
most of the dancing specialties. Lew-
is will again do a piano novelty, and
Robert Graham, '28, will sing the
principal song numbers, "R issian -
Rose," and "Indigo Strain." There will
be a special quartet from" the Varsity
Gleen club accompanying the. Opera.
The programs for the local rer-
formances of the Opera have arrived,
and are featured by an attractive cov-
er made from the regular poster, the
design of Theodore Rogvoy, '2SA.
They contain the short histories of
Mimes and the Union, and are replete
with views of the members of the
cast and of the showing in the mak-
ing. The programs were made up
under the direction of Arthur M.
Hinkley, '29, and Alex Scherer. '30.
