Mr. Abbot characterized the pro-

one of the best of the current series
and an excellecent one with which to
inaugurate the new year. Four speak-
ers will be heard through the micro-
phone and two musicians will appear
on the ttiusica side of the program.
Gould Will Speak
"Some Adventures in Remaking the
Map of Baffin Island," will be the
subject of Prof. Lawrence M. Gould
of the geology department. Professor
Could, who is a veteran explorer of
the Arctic, at the present time is one
of the leading candidates for member-
ship in Commander Richard E. Byrd's
South Pole expedition. While the per-
sonnel of the group will not be chosen
until March, it is quite probable that
Professor Could will be included as
chief geologist and geographer. Dur-
ing the past summer, Professor Gould
was in charge of the geographical
work of the Putnam expedition, and
before that accompanied the first
University of Michigan expedition to
Dr. Reuben Peterson, professor of
Obstetrics and Cynocology, and Bates
professor of Diseases of Women and
Children in the Medical school of the
University will be the second speaker
on the program, taking as his subject,
"The Early Recognition and Cure of
Cancer." Last year Dr. Peterson con-
ducted a state wide campaign for the
treatment of cancer.
Prof. Daniel L. Rich of th physics
department of the engineering college,
who is a specialist in the elimination
of noises in machinery, will be third
speaker on tomorrow night's program.
He will discuss, "Measurement of
Noise in Automobiles." Professor
Rich has done important work for
many large automobile corporations
and other manufacturing companies in
the elimination of obnoxious noises.
Recently, as the result of his research,
an annoying squeak was eliminated
from a milk separating machine, anl
he has also devised i more perfect
radio horn.
Will lear Nelso
"Dramatics and the University" will
be the subject of the fourth talk of
the evening by Prof. J.Raleigh Nelson
of the English department. Professor
Nelson has had charge of the Univer-
sity of michigan Comedy club plays
for many years and at the present
time is direcin - one of Barrie's plays
to be presented in fnn Arbor Jan. 11.
His talk will have a particular appeal
for those interested in amateur dra-
matics and the theater.
On the musical side of the program,
three musical interludes will be pre-
sented by Anthony J. Whitmire, in-
structor in the violin at the University
School of Music since 1913. Mr. Whit-
wire Vas for three years a pupil of
Witek and Barmas in Berlin, and has
given many recitals in this part of the
country as well as appearing in sev-
eral ensemble groups. His home is in
Ii addition to the interludes by Mr.
Whitmire, several vocal selections will
be rendered by Elizabeth Rarden,
soIiol of Music soloist who was award-
ed second place in the state Atwater
Kent audition contest recently. Her
home is in Greenville.
Many Letters Ileceied
More than 235 letters on the sixth
Michigan Night program, broadcast
Friday night, Dec. 9, have been re-
ceived at the local studio. This is the
largest number in the history of radio
broadcasting at the University, ac-
cording to Mr. Abbot, and letters are
still pouring in to his office. The great

Loughton Will Take
Originally Played By
Helen Mencken


Mimes will open its post-vacation
season next week with a presentation
of the Austin Strong play, "Seventhj
Heaven," one of the more recentj
Broadway successes. The vehicle has'
been in rehearsal for some time past,
as it was originally intended that it be
!given before vacation began. Opera
' preparations crowded the work and it
was postponed.
Helen Mencken, who recently played
the leading role in "The Captive," and
who is now in the London company of
"Seventh Heaven" played the part of
Diane in the original production.
Phyllis Loughton, '28, who last ap-
peared in the title role in Comedy
Club's "Dulcy" will carry the Mencken
part. Others who will feature the
cast will be Thomas J. Dougall, '28,
f William M. Lewis Jr., '29, Robert M.
Wetzel, '28, and Charles D. Living-
stone, '28L, Livingstone is also di-
recting the piece.
"Seventh Heaven" has been carried
over into the moving pictures, and

nor and Charles Farrel, was recently
exhibited at a local theater. It has

es in September, 1926.
Dr. Buell's report of lisAfrican
investigations will be published soon
in two volumes. The purpose of the
report is to set forth the problems
which have arisen out of theimpact
of primitive peoples with industrial

has written show the extraordinary

also written "Contemporary French

NEW YORK, Jan. 4-Smoking and
drinking in moderation have nothing
to do with religion, in the opinion of
Miss A. Maude Royden, English wo-
man preacher, who arrived to/.y to
learn that lectures she had pannea
'to give in Chicago and Boston have
been cancelled because of reports
about her views.
Both cancellations were for lec-
tures to be given under auspices of the
Woman's Home Missionary society of
the Methodist Episcopal church. The
one in Chicago was cancelled when
it was reported Miss Royden smoLel
cigarettes and the one at Boston
when it was said that she believed in
companionate marriarge.
Miss Royden acknowledged that she
smoked, but she said she had always
opposed any form of companionate
Miss Royden is scheduled to speak
at a special Sunday nxorning con-
(ation in Hill auditorium here on Feb.
PI1'ay Productions 'io Sponsor Noted
Puppets In Twio Performances
Early In February
Pursuant of a new policy to bring
outside attractions to the campus,
Play Productions will sponsor the
Jean Gros French Marionettes in two
plays to be given at Hill auditorium
Feb. 2, according to an announcement
made yesterday by Earl Fleischman,
director of the department. Arrange-
ments for tickets will be announced
Jean Gros is one of the more famou's
makers and organizers of puppet
shows at the present time, and this
organization is reputed to be the larg-
lest and most complete of its kind in
existence. Performances have been
given at various universities and have
been highly commended by the dram-
atic faculty. The company is under
the management of . J. Rupert, who
was in Ann Arbor la'st fall to make ar-
rangements for the showing.
Two performances will be given, one
a matinee particularly for school chil-
dren, at which the attraction will be
"Huckleberry Finn," adapted from the
Mark Twain stories. At night the
play will be Maurice Maeterlinck's
"Blue Bird" produced with special
effects. The "Blue Bird" has a com-
plete musical accompaniment, and it
is claimed by those in charge that the
fantastic nature of the piece can bet-
ter be brought out by the puppet per-
sonfications than by regular stage
I presentation.
The marionette company is com-
posed of experienced actors, trained
to manipulate the puppets and speak
the parts from behind the scenes. The
puppeteer science is European in
origin and little is known of it in
this country. The Jean Gros company
has the largest stage and the largest
marionettes used in any 'show of the

PAWIS. Jan. 4.--secretary Kellogg's
note to Foreign Minister Briand of
December 28, suggesting that the pro-
posed amity pack to outlaw war be-
tween France and the United States
be enlarged to include other nations
was made public by the Quai d'Orsay
tonight. It was given the utmost

prominnnce in the French press and
became the center of discussion in all
circles of French life.
The impression gained in official
circles in Paris today was that France
and the United State's are approaching
the point where they will be able to
sign a pact "to outlaw war." The
negotiations, looked at from this end,
and in the absence of official com-
ment, appear to be near conclusion
although there was some apprehen-
iion as to the extension of the accord
'o an indefinite number of powers as
i s proposed by Washington.
The idea of a pact to outlaw war
which was generally popular here
when considered as a proposition be-
tween France and the United States,
becomes complicated in the average
French mind when it is proposed to
extend it to other countries.
The reason for this, it is said in
the best informed circles, is the feel-
ing that a general pact of such a sort
would look too much like competition
with the League of Nations.
