Play Production Class Will (Present I
"The Play's The Thing"
On Mimes' Stage
Rights for Play Production to pre-,
sent Franz Molnar's "The Play's The
Thing" have at least been secured by
Earl Fleischman. An extra-curricular
cast will appear in this production
which will open to' the public on
May 9, in Mimes' theater. This special
cast together with scenery designed by
the stagecraft class will combine in
making this play one of the outstand-
ing presentations of the season.
* "The Play's The Thing" at the pres-
ent time is touring the principal
cities of the country. It has met
much succe'ss with Holbrook Blinn in
the leading role. The drama is a
satirical and sophisticated comedy in
which the art and craftsmanship of
dramatists are thoroughly discussed
in an entertaining manner. The
novelty of the play is clearly shown
by one act which is ended in three dif-
ferent ways by three different people.
The setting is an old Italian castle.
Richard Woellhaf, graduate student
and prominent campus player will
carry the Holbrook Blinn role, that of.
Sandar Turai. Minna Miller, grad-
uate student and former head of the
Junior Girls' play, will play opposite
tWoellhaf, in the part of Ilona Szaba.

NEW YORK, April 30.-The Ger-
man-Irish crew of the transatlantic
aeroplane Bremen was given a wel-
come today that left the trio gasping.
'Overwhelming," Major James Fitz-
maurice exclaimed when at last it wa-s
all over, and Baron Gunther von
Huenefeld and Capt. Harmann Koehl
nodded in agreement. "I am sure
that since the day of ancient Rome
such a sight was never witnessed be-
fore," the Irish major added.
It was a day of festival and the city
turned out to do honor to the heroes
from a foreign shore. Enthusiasm
seemed to have no limit and no jar-
ring note wa's heard in all the tumult
of friendly greetings.

30.-Jack Sharkey, Boston sailor
smashed Jack Delaney, former light-
heavyweight champion of the world,
into a disastrous knockout defeat in

flow of ripping left and right hooks to
* the chin finished Delaney before he

thrills for the crowd when he threat-
ened to hit the ball on several occa-
sions, but in the long run he always
struck out.
For the under staff Umpire Quinn
was the best performer, con'stantly
calling rank decisions for his side
when the decision of any under staff
man looking for an appointment
should have gone the other way.
"Big Boy" Silbar dropped a fly ball
batted outi by "Strikerout" Patrick
and practically assured the upper
staff of victory and himself of an ap-
pointment. O"Mighty" Simons, how-
ever, lost all chance's of getting any
place by nabbing a fly that should
have fallen for a hit and robbed the
upper staff of several runs.
German Teachers Investigate Methods
Used By School Of Education
And Ann Arbor Schools
Thirty of Germany's most promin-
ent educators spent Sunday and yes-
terday here in the city, investigating
local educational methods in the Uni-
versity and the Ann Arbor city
schools. The educators, who have al-
ready visited many of the nation's
leading cultural ' centers, expressed
great satisfaction and delight with
the city and the University.
While here, the guests were enter-
tained at the Union under the cour-
tesy of the University. Sunday after-
noon, soon after their arrival, they
were taken on a trip of a few hours
throug4h the city and surrounding
country. At the end of this tour, they
were guests at an informal supper
and reception at the Huron Hills
country club.
Yesterday morning, most of the
guests spent the morning visiting the
Ann Arbor schools, the University
high school classes, and the various
classes and lectures in the School of
Education. Yesterday noon, the visi-
to4s were guests of the School of Ed-
ucation faculty at their regular week-
ly luncheon at the Union. At this
time, some of the Germans spoke on
various subjects. The afternoon was
also spent in visiting more classes,
and in inspecting the campus and the
Last night, the visitors were guests
of the University at a special dinner
at the Union. At this time, some of
the more prominent specialists spoke
on manynsubjects of interest.
The Germans are now making the
tour of this country in the interests
of the Zentralinstitut of Berlin, and
are studying athfirst hand American
educational methods. While much of
their observationdis being directed to-
ward the methods in secondary and
elementary education, they are also
vitally interested in advanced learn-
ing. Among some of the more promi-
nent were Dr. Peter Peterson, pro-
fessor at the University of Jena, Prof.
Otto Schultze of the University of
Konigsberg, and ,Dora Wagner of the
Girls Secondary school at Dresden.
Fire, which attracted more than
3000 people from the surrounding
countryside, last night destroyed eight
buildings, exclusive of the farmhouse,
belonging to Frank Mannor, east of
Ann Arbor near the village of Platt.
The loss, early after the fire last
night, was estimated at $10,000. The
large barn. the garage, and many oth-
er buildings were entirely destroyed.
Also much farm machinery, 400 Ush-
els of corn, and other rural posses-
'sions were lost, although all the live-
'stock was saved.

"Vegetation is the source of most of
our food, the source of much .of our
clothing, the source of some of our
most-used articles; it is expressed in
many forms of art and in literature,"
said Dr. Liberty Hyde Bailey in a Uni-
versity lecture yesterday afternoon in
the Natural Science auditorium. "Yet,'
he continued, "in spite of all our re-
lationship with it, we know very little
about it."
Dr. Bailey who is one of the world's
foremost authorities on Botany and
Gorticulture used as his main subject
'"Arboretums and Botanical Gardens.'
r "A botanical garden is an enterprise
to make the plants of earth known,'
he defined. "It is not only a collec-
tion of plants-it is an organized en-

With Comedian, Fred Stone
Dalton D. Walper '29 of Toledo and
Robert W. Manss, '30, of Cincinnati,
were respectively elected general
chairman and stage manager of the
1928 Michigan Union opera at a com-
mittee meeting of Mimes, men's cam-
pus dramatic organization, yesterday
afternoon. Both Walper and Manss
have for some time been identified
with the activities of the opera. Other
officials for the 1928 production have
not yet been selected.
At the same time it was announced
I that a different policy will be follow-
ed with regard to the selection of mu-
sic and the selection of members of
j the cast and choruses. Instead of all

vidual, all who are interested are
asked to write up their ideas, and in
the near future they will be given an
opportunity to present their music

Tickets for the Senior Ball will a-
gain be on sale today at the desk iii
the lobby of the Union from 9 to 12
and from 2 to 4 o'clock, according to
an announcement made yesterday by
James Hughey, '28, general chairman
of the affair.
The annual dance of the seniors of
all classes of the University will take
place in the Uniontballroom on Fri-
day, May 18. The tickets have been
priced at $5.
It was not stated whether or not
tickets would be available much later

ed of, according to class representa-

to a committee.

Furthermore, men

from the glee club will be urged to
try out for the various positions in1
the cast and choruses. In this way, it
is hoped that the Opera will be able
to boast vast improvements along gen-
eral musical lines, , as E. Morti-
mer Shuter, director of Mimes, ist
determined that there shall be ex-t
ceptional musical talent in the com-
ing presentation. t
Hoyer To Direct Practice
Roy Hoyer, for several years lead-I
ing muan with Fred Stone of "Criss
Cross" fame, will arrive in Ann Ar-
bor about May 15 -to personally di-1
rect spring practice and acquaint the
try-outs for positions with many new
dances routines planned by him for
the 1928 Opera. Hoyer has assisted
in the production of many past Op-a
eras, but for the last two years has
been unable to be here. His contribu-
tions in the past have always been
valuable in adding a touch of orig-
inality to the usual chorus work.
In addition, Theodore Harrison of
the School of Music and director of
the glee club, will personally direct
the singing and all musical work
having to do with the show for the
coming year, while Donal Hamilton
Haines, of the journalism department.
is consulting daily with those inter-
ested in writing the book for the
coming opera. Any who have not yet
talked to him with regard to the re-
quirements for the book and general
suggestions for the preparation of
the manuscript, are asked to com-
municate with him between 12 and
1 o'clock within the next few days at
his home.
To Continue Registration
Due to many requests, registration
for any wishing to enroll for cast,
committee, or chorus work, will be
continued on Wednesday and Thurs-
day of this week between the hours
of 4 and 5:30 o'clock in the after-
noon. A number of the more exper-
ieced members of the various units
in the show of last year will this
year be lost to the production by
graduation, and unusual chances for
new men are being offered.
i The trip that is being planned for
the next Opera will be longer than
any of the trips in the past. Besides
all the usual cities in the East that
are regularly played. The Opera has
scheduled engagements in New York
and Washington. The regular mid-
Western trip will be included in the
F itinerary as before, but this year the
trip will go East before going to
Chicago, and thence to Kalamazoo
where the company will break up.

Vachel Lindsay, the poet, who was
to give a recital in Hill auditorium at
8:15 o'clock this evening, has been
compelled to postpone his Ann Arbor
visit because of temporary ill health,
those in charge of the Inlander Lit-
erary lecture series announced yes-:
terday after receiving a telegram from
Mr. Lindsay.

poet's home in Spokane, Wash., did
not state whether he would be able to
appear here before June. It an-
nounced, however, that a recital which'
