obsolete, and the college opera was
the solution. In the spring of 1908,
75 men produced "Michigenda" in the
Whitney theater and were given an
enthusiastic reception, the quality ofj
which has never been duplicated de-1
spite the growing elaboratene'ss of the
show and the time put into it. Campus
critical standards, too, have changed.{
Donal Hamilton Haines '08, wrote the
book, and Roy Welch, '09, the music
and lyrics for this first show, which
was a mimic of student life. "Culture"
followed this in 1909, and served to
tire the audience of Ann Arbor set-
tings. They have never been used
since that time ,and Operas have gone
all over the globe in search of color.
"Contrarie Mary" in 1913 was the ;
first Opera given under the Mimes
organization, and it was likewise the
first to be taken on a road trip. This
custom served to banish forever any
local allusions in book and music,
and a new identity of a professional
nature was established' which result-
ed in the most famous of all Union.
Operas, "Cotton Stockings," given in '
1924. This show completed a road
tour of more than 16 cities including
New York, Washington, and Phila-
'delphia, traveled more than 26,000
,niles, and cost $75,000 to produce.
Each of the Operas produced since
that time and including the last, "The
'Sanee to You," has supported the ye-r
putation of Mimes and the Michiganf
Union in the East and Middle West
with ever-increasing lavishness andj
,rofessional finish. E. Mortimer Shu-
ter has been general directr/_ of
Mimes and the Michigan Union Op-
eras since 1919, the period of great-
est development, and has been the
principal figure in raising the Operaj
to its present national pedestal. j

Preacher P ursues Graduate Work At
Columbia University While
Doing Other Duties
As the second speaker of three who
have been procured to address the
Student Sunday convocations during
the spring series, Rev. John Schroeder
of Saginaw will deliver the address
next Sunday morning in Hill auditor-
ium. The first speaker on this series
was Maude Royden, who spoke here
several weeks ago to the largest aud-
ience which has ever gathered in Ann
Arbor for a religious service, and the
speaker who will preside .on the Sun-
day following Rev. Schroeder, Sunday,
March 25, is Rev. Karl Rieland, of
New York city.
Reverand Schroeder is a young man
who has had an active and full life
which gives him an excellent train-
ing and background for his chosen
profession. He brings to his activity
as a preacher a rare vitality which
marks him as a popular and persua-
sive evangelist in the best sense of
the word, and his contacts with 'some
of the leading men of the day have en-
abled him to view the world with a
balanced and sane viewpoint which is
the result of his experience.
Worked Way TLuoughi College
Being the son of a family in but
moderate circumstances, he early re-
solved that his college education
would be the result of his own efforts
and work. He graduated from the
University of New York after having
earned his own way, and immediately
began work on his graduate studies
at Columbia university. During the
time that he was, working in the
graduate schoolat Columbia, he was
also taking work at the Union Theo-
logical seminary, was house master of
the Cathedral Choir school, acted as
assistant at the Brick Presybterian
church, and tutored in mathematics--
all of these activities at the same time
It is said by those who know him,
that Reverand Schroeder has a most
engaging personality aside from his
intellectual capacity. He has been on
intimate terms with the outstanding
men in his profession who have ad-
mired him and sought his company
'socially. The late president, D,
Eliot of Harvard, regarded him highly
and sought his companionship. Both
Harry Fosdick and Willard Sperry,
cutstanding preachers of the United
States know and like him, and both of
them regard :Schroeder as their warm
Schroeder Was Sperry's Assistaut
Schroeder's friendship with Dr.
Sperry is especially significant be-
cause of the fact that Schroeder was
at one time assistant to Dr. Sperry
at the Central Congregational church
in Boston. It was from' this church
that Dr. Sperry was called to become
Dean of the Harvard Theological
seminary, at which time he left
Schroeder the job. But soon after,
appreciating the opportunities which
existed elsewhere in the field for a
young man, he relinquished his place.
Rev. Schroeder is coming as the re-
sult of the efforts of several members
of the. convocatlons commfttee ap-
pointed by President Clarence Cook
Little, and the encouragement of
several of his friends in Saginaw who
feel that he is distinctly fitted to ad-
dress a University audience.
Engage Ted Weems'
Orchestra To Play
At Freshman Dance
Ted Weems' orchestra, of Kansas
City, Kan., has been engaged to sub-
stitute for the Goodrich S'ilvertown
band at the Frosh Frolic, following
the cancellation of contract by the

New York organization, it was an-
nounced by the committee in charge
of the annual formal. The Weems
concern are Victor recording artists
and have proved to be very popular
in the west. The orchestra played the
past summer season at the Hot
Springs, Ark., country club. The or-
chestra is soon to start for the East
to fill an engagement, and by a happy
coincidence will be able to stop over
in Ann Arbor the night of March 30,
the date of the dance.
Negotiations are in progress by
members of the Frolic committee to
have movies taken of the affair. In
addition to this there is a possibility

pose of the affair is to bring about
