No Expense Spared In Obtaining Bes
Orchestras In Country, Believe
Officers in Charge
Finishing the work of more than
two months, final preparations are
being made for the class of 1929
J-Hop by the committte headed by
John R. Gilmartin, '29E. TheJ-Hop
conceded tobe the high point of the
University social season, will be one
of the most brilliant ever conducted
at Michigan, according to those in
charge, and should 'go far toward re-
ducing the belief that the annual
function is getting too unwieldy to
be popular among the student body.
Unusual provisions for entertainment
and decorations have been made this
year, and a record attendance is as-
sured by the enthusiastic manner in
which the whole number of tickets
was claimed when placed on sale.
No expense was spared by the
members of the vomnmittee in obtain-
ing the music for the 1929 J-Hop,
and due to an exceedingly changea-
ble season, they had the choice of
most o' the finest dance bands in the
country. After personal inspection of
many musical organizations the Jack
Chapman orchestra at present play-
ing in Chicago was selected, and aft-
erwards Emerson Gill's radio broad-
casting band of Cleveland and Mc-
Kinney's Cotton Pickers of Detroit
were added to the group.
Chapman From Chicago
Jack Chapman and his organiza-
tion is at present playing during the
dinner hour at the La Salle hotel in
Chicago, and afterwards furnishes
dance music at the Bal Tabarin. Dur-
ing the summer he plays at the Ma-
rine roof at the same hotel. He
records for the Victor company. The
contract calls for no substitutions in
the personnel of the band, and the
appearance of the original group is
Emerson Gill has one of the better-
known broadcasting organizations in
the country, and his choice was the
result of many requests on the part
of students and prospective J-Hop
uests who had heard him play. He
has made Columbia records, and at
present plays at the Bamboo Gar-
dens in Cleveland. The last band
picked was McKinney's Cotton Pick-
ers of Detroit, who have been built
up to be th first-string organization
of Gene Goldkette's m-anagement,
since the disbanding of the original
Gene Goldkette orchestra which play-
ed at the affair last year. The Cot-
ton Pickers also broadcast, and will
shortly embark upon a tour of the
East during which time they will
make records of their ow.
Presents Dutch Village e
The general scheme of the decora-
tions for the J-Hop carries out the
ida aoof a Dutch village in a scale
never before attempted. The prize-
winning design was the work of J.
A. Taylor, '29A, and is being planned
and built by the George P. Johnson
Flag and Decoration company of De-
troit. Striking lighting effects may
be obtained by the use of a large
moon at one end of the gymnasium,
the color of which will change with
the progress of the night from yel-
low to red, with a simllar changing
effect on the blue sky overhead. A
huge windmill will be erected at the
end of the floor and behind this the
moon will be suspended. At inter-
vals around the floor will be light-
houses shining beasons upon the
dancers, while all of the booths will
be constructed as cottages having
slate and thatch roofs. The fraternity
or group insignia of those inhabiting
the both will be hung in front. The
passage between the two gymnasi-
ums will be wrought to resemble a
bridge connecting two bodies of wa-
ter, and under this will be moored
a boat containing one of the orches--
Built To Fit
For the first time the decorations
will be built specifically to fit the

gymnasiums, thus adding to the unity
and completeness of the effect.
The grand march will take place
proipt ly at 11 o'clock, and will be led
1y the geneiral chairman, John R.
Gilmardn, '29E and his partner, Eva
Jo Montgomery of Cushing, Okla. It
will end in the traditional forming of
the block "M" and the picture will
then be taken. Moving pictures of
the grand march and entertainment
will be' taken by Reograms service.

The Rockford Players are complet-
ing their third season under the di-
rection of Robert Henderson, '26, and
have just completed a 20 weeks run in
the Rockford theater at Rockford, Ill.,
preceeded by a 30 weeks season la'st
year. The Ann Arbor season is pre-
sented under the management of Don
McIntyre, and will be the first regular
stock engagement ever presented in
Ithis city.
The company is already well known
in Ann Arbor, both because many of
d the players are former Michigan stu-
-_ I dents and because of the popular
spring and summer 'seasons on the
campus. Each summer the Rockford
Players are presented under the aus-
pices of the Summer Session, the only
Yprofessional company in the country
to be sponsored by a university.
Mrs. Mansfield, who retried from the
stage during the war following the

Year Miarks Fiftieth Anniversary Since
Organization By Dr. Damrosh
In Steinway Hall
Now entering upon its fiftieth or-
ganized year, the New York symphony
orchestra, conducted by Walter Dam-
rosch, will make its appearance on
Feb. 1 in Hill auditorium, as an at-
traction of the regular concert series..
As a special feature of the concert,
John Erskine, professor of English
literature at Columbia and popular
novelist, will appear as soloist with
the orchestra.
It was just 50 years ago that Dr.
Leopold Damrosch organized a group
of players for a concert in Old Stein-
'way hall, New York, and this led to;
the establishment of the present or-
ganization, as well as to the founding
of all other 'symphony groups in the
country. It was the first symphony
orchestra to undertake nation-wide
tours or road concerts of any kind,
and in this work it visited many
towns and cities which had never
heard a symphonic program. It is
estimated that during its existence
the orchestra has played to more than

were completed today for the hearing
Monday by the federal oil conserva-
tion committee of nine of suggestions
for the contrl of prduction and elimin-

few of which are applicable except
in restricted territories, have been re-

Chairman Henry M. Bates, of the
University of Michigan, said the com-
mittee was faced by one of the major
I problems of the industry, some oil

eager for legislation to curb produc-
tin but appear inclined to prevent

permissive legislation to prevent
waste." They desire, he said, legisla-
tion that would prevent "uncontrolled
action of unwise operators."
In devising the plan, the commit-
tee must seek not only 'to eliminate
the wasteful use of gas as pressure
to force oil into the wells, he said,
but if possible to reach an equiable
control of production without violating
the Sherman and various state anti-
trust laws.
Wolverines Gain Three Decisions,
Fall, an Draw To Annex
Second 1928 Victory
By Morris Quinii
For the second time'in three days
West Virginia's wrestling team suf-
fered a reverse at- the hands of a Big
Ten opponent, when it went down to
defeat before thme well-balanced Mich-
igan aggregation last night in the
field house by a 18 1-2 to 4 1-2 score
before a crowd of nearly a thousand
spectators, the largest that ever wit-
nessed a home meet. Warren com-,
peting as a 175-pounder for the
first time, surprised the spectators by
defeating his heavier opponent with
a time adv'antage of 4:21.
Hewitt and Girden, West Virginia
star, wrestled to a draw in two over-
time periods in the 115-pound match,
which proved to be the feature bout
of the evening. Neither man gained
any advantage in the regular 10-
minute bout, and the advantages gain-
ed by each in the overtime periods
were equal, each team receiving one
and a half points.
Ed George, Wolverine heavyweight,
gained the only fall of the meet in
easy fashion, pinning Ted Nixon with
a bar and arm and half nelson after
2:20 of the final bout had elapsed, in
spite of determined resistance on 'the
part of his smaller opponent.
The 125-pound match also went into
overtime periods before Cox, West
Virginia star, was able to gain enough
advantage over Kailes to win by a
2:30 margin. Sauer experienced little
difficulty in defeating Currence of the
invading team in te 145-pound bout,
but his opponent's unusual size ren-
dered his efforts to gain a fall un-
Captain Watson encountered an in-
experienced but stubborn opponent in
Brill in the 135-pound bout, and al-
though he had no difficulty in hold-)
ing his early advantage, he was un-
able to gain a fall. Twice near the
end of the match, Watson came close
to pinning his rival, but he had to
content himself with a decision on a

time advantage of 9:04.
In the 158-pound bout, which
brought Captain Sudor of the invad-
e ing team and Ex-Captain Donahoe to-
gether, the latter won Michigan's ,
fourth victory of the meet, being!
awarded a decision after piling up a
time advantage of 7:50.

Phi Kappa Phi, senior honary so-
ciety last night announced the Ielec-
tion of 16 members of the faculty and
43 members of the senior classes of
the various schools.
At this election Phi. Kappa Phi
chose about 40 per cent of the group
that are usually taken from each
graduating class. The remainder will
be chosen in the spring. In view of
the fact that these elections are based
almost entirely on the students'
grades for the first three years, choice
at time beginning of the year is con-
sidered a special honor.
Qualifications considered in choice
of membership are high scholarship,
campus activities, and service to the !
University. The final date for the
initiation banuet has not been deter-
mined although it will be sometime
during the week of Feb. 20.
Those chosen from the faculty
were: Prof. H. C. Anderson, Prof. J.

Little Explains Plans To Add Support
Of 70,000 Former Students To
That Of State Taxpayers
Meeting in a gigantic banquet at
the Union last night, more than 450
alumni of the University heard Pres-
ident Clarence Cook Little, and El-
mer J. Ottoway, president of the
Alumni association, outline the plans
of the new Alum-ni universty.
"Our presence here," Ottoway de-
clared in sounding the keynote of the
meeting, "is nothing more, and cer-
tainly nothing less than a manifesta-
tion of our interest in our Univer-
pity." The alumni president went on
to sketch the growth of the Univer-
sity in the past, her traditions, ideals,
and in a brief manner what it is
hoped to accomplish in the future.
He described the alumni organiza-
tion of the University as the best
and the strongest of any'university
in the country, declaring that when
he took over the office of president
there were between 150 and 200
alumni clubs throughout the coun-
try, ready organized amnd awaiting
only a program upon which to work.
It is to furnish this program' that
the administration; is at present plan-
ning the development of the Alum-
ni university, Ottoway stated, sug-
gesting that one phase of this new
university will be the adult educa-
tion division, with a faculty and
courses wthout credit for those of
the alumni who desire to contnue
their education after they leave
school. T.
