Was Secretary Of War In President
Wilson's Cabinet; Is One
Of Leading Democrats
Hon. Newton D. Baker, of Cleveland,
Ohio, will deliver an address on "The
Complete Education" at the student,
E convocation to be held at 11 o'clock
this morning in Hill auditorium. This
convocation is the closing one of the
fall series of convocations.
Mr. Baker is a speaker and public
figure of note, having spent all of his
life in the limelight of public activity.
In the city of Cleveland, Ohio, he
has been prominent for many year as
a lawyer and politician. For 10 years
he held the position of city solicitor
in that city, and for four years he held
the office of mayor. At the present
time lie is engaged in the practice of
law in that c'ity and holds the position'
as a member of the board of directors
of several large corporations.
Was in Wilson's Cabinet
During the presidency of Woodrow
Wilson, Mr. Baker, one of the leading
Democrats of the country, held the
position of Secretary of War in the
Cabinet. This office was given to him
in 1916 and he held the position until
1921. This period, the one in which
the United States was trying to with-
hold herself from the war and at the
same time preparing in the event of
warfare, is one of the most interest-
ing in recent American history. And
since Mr. Baker was at the head of .all
the departments which were prepar-
ing, he has brought from that experi-
once a wealth of knowledge and train-
All of Mr. Baker's experience in
politics and public life tend to make
him an interesting speaker. Varied
experiences, blended with ability to
see and. understand situations has
tended to give him a broad outlook
on life and the problems of the world.
The title of his address, "The Com-
plete Education," indicates the nature
of his thoughts.
Special Committee Serves
The .plans for the convocations are
in the hands of a special committee
appointed by President Clarence Cook
Little. The chairman of the commit-
tee is John Snodgrass, '28E. The
i committee is assisted in its counsels
by Dr. Frank E. Robbins, assistant to
the President of the University, and
- James Inglis, a member of the board
of trustees of the Michigan School of
- Religion.
The soloist for the service will be
- Robert Graham, and the accompanist
will be Cassius Jolly, borth. of the
s School of Music.

prevalent last year. There are more
representatives of the various depart-
ments and activities than in the past.
It has drawn the members of its cast
and choruses, its committees, and its
functionaries from dramatics, athletic,
Glee club, and publications, and is
truly a student product. In this way
it has assumed the burden of a broad-
er activity, and has come to offer
training in many different lines.
Book Authors In Cast.
The Opera book is the product of
Vincent C. Wall Jr., '28, music and
dramatic editor of The Daily, and
Thomas J. Dougall, '28, a former as-
sociate editor of the Mliebiganensian.I
The authors have collaborated in writ-
ing the lyrics for all the music. The

last year's Opera, "FroiIt Page Stuf.
All tlirec students have prominent
roles in the cast of "Tle Saum e To

and t'aining choruses, formeily

over by stu ent assistants, taught by
their work in other Operas.

Bond Theft Is Theme.
"The Same To You" is in two acts
and four scenes, and is laid around a
bond theft and the ultimate recovery.
The locale of the action shifts from
a Long Island garden party to a
modern night club and underworld
rendezvous, the Indigo Isle. The plot
and music has been constructed on a
