Practice for the 1928 Michigan
Union Opera will get under way
with a meeting at 4 o'clock this
afternoon in the Mimes theater of
all those interested in any phases
of the work, whether it be cast
chorus, or committee activities. All
those who would like to try out for
this work whether they were out
last spring or not are asked to at-
tend the meeting this afternoon,
according to Dalton D. Walper '28,
general chairman.
A great deal of effort was put
forth this summer by those in
charge of the Opera in planning
the various phases of the produc-
tion. Mr. Milton Peterson '27L of
the Peter March company of De-
troit who will design and execute
the costumes for the show, spent
several weeks during the past sum-
mer obtaining local color for the
The nature of the new Opera is
not to be divulged for some time,
according to E. Mortimer Shuter,
director, for it will be a distinct
departure from anything ever
attempted before by any group of
collegiate players in any Univer-
sity or college in the country, he
maintains. "Just as 'Cotton Stock-
ings' of several years ago changed
the trend for college productions
and set a new pace to follow, so
we expect the new show to be just
as different and just as original
in conception," Shuter declared.
Theodore Harrison, director of
the glee clubs, will be in charge of
the entire muscial end of the show.
It is said that in this phase, too,
there will be radical departures,
more attentioon being given to the
careful selection of snappy, orig-
inal, and different music as well as
to the particula, training of vocies
for the songs.
One of the well known scenic
artists of this country, Axel Gruen-
burgh, has been retained by Shuter
to work on the execution of new
and novel ideas in scenery and spe.
cial effects which will be introduc-
ed in the coming show. He will
begin work on this material at once
and continue with his staff steadily
until the work is completed.
The complete itinerary of th(
Opera will be announced in the
near future and it is understoo
that many of the larger cities of
the country are being included a
heretofore, namely Chicago, Phila.
delphia, New York, and others.

Present Enrollment Exceeds By 200,
The Number Of Rooters
In Past Years
One thousand and seventy-five
of the 1,200 available seats in the
cheering section had been sold up
to last night, according to an an-
nouneement by Paul J. Kern, '29,
The remaining 125 seats will be
placed on sale throughout this
week at the Administr tion build-
ing on Ferry field. P:ivision has
been made by the student council
with the official handling ticket
distribution for those who have
already made their regular appli-
cations to exchange their seats, if
they wish, for those in the cheer-
ing section.
The present enrollment of 1,075
exceeds by more than 200 any
previous figures. The first cheer-
ing section, organized two years
ago in the fall of 1926, seated 800
rooters. Last year in the new sta-
dium the cheering section seated
850. This year's section will easily
reach the maximum enrollment of
1,200 early this week, according to

Yesterday morning students or
all four classes of the Medical
school gathered in the West Medi-
cal building to hear Dr. Hugh Ca-
bot, dean of the school, and Dr.
Paul S. McKibben of the anatomy
department deliver short addresses.
Dean Cabot challenged members
of the incoming class to prove that
they were worthy of the careful se-
lection given the group. He stated
that this year's Freshman Medical
class was the most carefully chosen
group that had ever been admitted
to the school.
Many Turned Away
"We had to turn away a great
many including at least 100 who
were perfectly qualified to enter.
Why was this, you ask? My answer
is that it is extremely doubtful it
mass production has any place in
educational institutions generally,
anj it is absolutely certain that it
has no place in schools of medicine.
This is true because it is not pos-
sible to provide the proper facilities
for training large numbers. We
have satisfactory facilities for the
training of about 100 upperclass
students in the clinics.
"Inasmuch as the mortality rate
of the. students who fail to survive
the four years has dropped from
some place around 30 per cent to
less than 10 per cent, we must lim-
it the size of Freshman groups ac-
cordingly," reasoned Dr. Cabot.
"However, let me add, it is not due
to any decrease in scholastic re-
quirements, or to a lessening of the
ferocity of the faculty members,
that this decrease in mortality has
taken place, but rather to the careA
ful selection of those who seem best
qualified to take the course, and
having classes small enough to be
properly trained."
