War Vessel, Now In A Dry Dock, To
Carry President-Elect On
Good-Will Tour
(By Associated Press)
12-Herbert Hoover prepared today
to leave his home in Palo Alto on
Sunday to board ship at San Pedro,
Monday, for his good-will trip to

tleship Maryland, which will bear

on their southward journey, will be
Balboa, Panama Canal zone, where
Mr: Hoover will make the first task
of his journey the inspection of
the Panama canal. Beyond the
brief stop that will be made there,

A definite decision regarding the
acceptance of an invitation to visit

The news was received today that
Henry P. Fletcher, ambassador to
Rome would represent the state
department on the trip.

"The Doctor's Dilemna" Will Be
Followed By "The
Second Man"
Opening a short run of four plays
tomorrow night at the Whitney
theater, the repertory company of
the New York Theater guild will
present Shaw's "The Doctor's Di-
This masterpiece chosen for the
opening performance is a brilliant
satire on the medical fraternity by
the great Irishman who has often
compared to Moliere, and has
poured prodigally into this play1
much of the Frenchman's violent
antipathy for doctors.
"The Doctor's Dilemna" is one
of three Shavian productions in
which there are great love themes.
In all his writings, Shaw has never
written a more tender and magnif-
icent dialogue than the death scene
of this play, nor has he created a
more lovable character than Jen-
nifer wife of the artist, a role
which will be played by Elizabeth
Despite Shaw's TParthian shots
at the medical profession, it has
played successfully to houses of
doctors from Johns Hopkins, Balti-
more. A well-known Baltimore
physician said of the performance,
"The arrival of one good clown
exercises a more beneficial influ-
ence on the health of a city than
that of twenty asses laden with
drugs," and he described the play
as "no problem play at all but
just another bit of eternal human
comedy. An old, old comedy of
The play was first performed in
London some fifteen years ago, and
in later revivals became one of the
most popular on the whole Shaw
f list. Granville-Barker gave it for
a single week in New York during
their repertory seeason in 1915, and
from that time until the guild re-
vived it last year, it had not been
seen in America.
"The Doctor's Dilemna" tomor-
row night will be followed by "The
Second Man," another high comedy
on Monday night, Nov. 19, "Ned
McCobb's Daughter," on Wednes-
day night, Nov. 28, another comedy
with a serious theme, and "John
Ferguson" on Monday night, Dec. 3.
Play Production Will
Have Private Showing
Play Production's second private
presentation will be given for three
nights, Tuesday, Wednesday, and
Thursday, Nov. 20, 21, and 22, it
was announced yesterday by Val-
entine B. Windt, director of Play
Production activites. Admission
will be by invitations only. Since

more than 400 persons were re-
fused invitations for the last pri-
vate showings, Windt has asked
that persons wanting to see the
coming plays write in or call at
the office of Play Production at
The first number on the pro-
grom will be a one act "curtain

Possible That Small Life Boats
Have Made Their Way To Land
Despite Squally Weather
(By Associated Press)
The fate of 300 men, women and
children, refugees from the strange-1
ly stricken Lamport and Holt liner,
Vestris, was in doubt as this edition
went to press.
No trace of the passengers and
crew was found when the first of;
several rescue ships arrived at the
point, 300 miles off the Virginia.
'coast where the Vestris careened
sadly yesterday and sank.
Earlier messages had told of the
ship's personnel taking to the boats
and officials of the line in New
York expressed the conviction that
these boats at once had headed for
the nearest shore. As several hours
had elapsed between the abandon-
ment of the Vestris and the arrival
of the first reporting rescue craft,
it was held at the line headquarters
that the boats might well have
been a score of miles away, despite
squally weather.
Japanese Boat Alongside
Another fact operating to dis-
count anxiety was the proximity of
the Japanese ship Ohio Maru, re-
ported "alongside" the Vestris be-
fore the latter foundered. Trans-
fer of personnel to the Ohio Maru,
either from the sinking ship or
after they had taken to the boats,
was seen as a logical explanation of
"no trace found" reports from the
later arriving ship.
Strong northwest winds and a
heavy seea were reported by ships
in the vicinity.
Ships Go To Rescue
Two of the dozen ships sent
hurtling to the scene by the Ves-
tris' broadcast S. O. S. had reported
no signs could be found in the
vicinity of the life boats in which
her roster of 350 had taken refuge
when the contnued list of the Ves-
tris indicated she was doomed.
Her searchlights swept the sea
for miles without revealing one of
the boats, the Santa Barbara said
at 8 p. m. Eastern Standard time)
and the San Juan tersely recounted
that two and a half hours crusing
over the position given by the stric-
ken ship had been fruitless.

Showers Of Meteors
ExpectedThis Week
(By Associated Press)
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 12.-
The mystery of Leonids, the most
spectacular of the world's meteoric
showers, forecast by some astrono-
mers for appearance this week, is
explained by Dr. Willard J. Fisher,
the fireball expert of Harvard ob-
servatory. All this week they are
worth watching, Dr. Fisher says,
since they are forerunners of the
great display expected to return. in
a few years.
Fifteen great historic showers of
the Leonids are recorded from 902
A. D. to 1901. Twenty-nine years
ago Prof. W. H. Pickering of Har-
vard, discovered that the showers
reoccur atintervals of about 34
years. It had been believed that
they came a little oftener. In an-
nouncing the 34-year period, Prof.
Pickering forecast a display in 1901
and reports from the Caribbean
that year told of meteors " like
snowflakes in a blizard." He fore-
cast, the next great display, "whose
maximum was not to be expected
before 1935."




Dean Of Professional School
Tell Students Of
New Plan


Singing Chorus Of 34 Men To Be
Used As An Interpretation Of
Musical Theme
With, the opening of the 1928
Union Opera, "Rainbow's End,"
only four weeks off, cast rehearsals
for the production are proceeding
with all characters definitely
chosen, according to E. Mortimer
Shuter, director of the opera.
William J. Browne '31 of Green-
ville, Mich., hailed at Mimes the-
ater as this year's "discovery," has
been chosen to play the feminine
lead. The comic lead will be filled
by Daniel H. Buell '30 of Detroit,
who was seen in last year's opera,
"The Same To You." The male
leads will be played by Sidney F.
Straight, spec., of Ann Arbor and
William R. Day '30L of Cleveland.
Others taking prominent parts in
this year's show are Hugh Claney
'30, William B. Reed '30. Harlan P.
Cristy '29, Richard C. Kurvink '29,
and several others.
Special Chorus Planned
Long heralded as the "opera dif-
ferent," "Rainbow's End" will pre-
sent a number of innovations. A
singing chorus of 34 men has been
selected to serve as a special group
to interpret this year's music,
Usually the only choruses to sing
the music have been the regular
dancing choruses. In addition,
Theodore Harrjson ( director of the
Glee club, is aidingin the train-
ing of the singers for the coming
production. Many features in the
staging of the entire presentation
will constitute a radical departure
from the previousroperas.
The author's of the book, "Rain-
bow's End," are Hugh Olaney '3(
of Chicago and David B. Hemp-
stead, Jr. '31 of Salt Lake City

Announcement of a meeting of
all pre-medical students to be held
at 5 o'clock this afternoon in the
West Amphitheater of they West
Medical building has been made by
Dr. Hugh Cabot, dean of the Med-
ical school. At this time Dean
Cabot will explain to prospective
students of medicine the functions'
of the newly created position of
Counsellor, to which Mr. Harvey
Emery has been appointed.
It was felt by the authorities that
the pre-medical student had prob-
lems so numerous and varied to
face before he finally became a
doctor, that a counsellor with
whom the student might prove
beneficial both to the student and
to the school. The position of
Counsellor was not created merely
to give orders on what should and
what should not be taken by the
student before he enters the medi-
cal school, according to Mr. Emery,
but to work out with the individual
the questions which enter his mind
in relation to the persuit of sub-
jects prerequisite to the study of
medicine. Certain courses must be
taken during the period of pre-
paration for advanced study, Mr.
Emery continued, but there are also
many subjects which are absolute-
ly necessary for entrance into med-
ical school, but which might be
of great benefit to the individual
because of the broad field upon

new faces will appear in the Sen-
ate when it reconvenes next month
for the short and last term of the
present ,Congress. The new sena-
tors, all Republicans, were chosen
at this election to fill unexpired
terms of deceased members and
one vacancy caused by resignation.
An additional eight new mem-
bers, seven of whom are Republi-
cans, will be -sworn when the newly
elected congress comes into office
after next March 4. These mem-
bers in most instances defeated in-
cumbents but one will fill a seat
voluntarily relinquished.
The new members who will take
office immediately are John
Thomas, of Idaho, succeeding the
late Frank R. Gooding; Represen-
tative Theodore Burton, of Ohio,,
succeeding the late Frank B. Wil-I
lis; Octavino Larrazolo, of New
Mexico, succeeding the late Andri-
eux A. Jones, and Otis S. Glenn, of'
Illinois, who takes the seat vacated
by Frank L. 'Smith. Thomas, Bur-
ton and Glenn will serve until 1932
when the regular terms of their
predecessors would have expired.
Larrazolo will serve only until'
March 4.

be discussed.Y
The position of Counsellor was
not created as a permanent addi-
tion to the staff of the Medical
school, but as an experiment to dis-
cover as many of the problems of
the pre-medical student as possi-
ble so that a means of solving them
satisfactorily may be worked out.
The whole plan, according to those
in charge, is to aid the student as
much as possible in outlining his
work, not dogmatically, but as
helpfully as may be done.
Goodrich In New York
To Attend Law Meeting
Prof. Herbert F. Goodrich of the
Law school left last Friday for New
York to attend a meeting of the
Confiic't of Laws committee and the
Torts committee. These com-
mittees meet once a year for a re-
statement of the conflict of laws
and the law of torts.
Each committee is composed of
seven or eight lawyers, teachers,
and judges, from all parts of the
country and represent the best in
each profession.
Prof. Goodrich will probably re-
turn to Ann Arbor next Monday.

Peter March of Detroit has been
entrusted with the task of provid-
ing all the costumes for this year's
opera. The representative of that
firm who observed the Pueblo In-
dians last summer to obtain local
color has completed many novel
costumes which will have their in-
troduction in "Rainbow's End."
Western Settings Prevail
The coming opera will be divided
into two acts and four scenes. The
first act begins with a scene at the
prayer stone at the pueblo; the
second scene shows the exterior of
the ranch house. The plaza of the
pueblo is the next scene, while the
interior of the kiva will provide the
most unusual setting during the
entire show. Following the kiva
scene, the plaza of the pueblo and
the prayer stone will be used in the
climaxes of the final action.
The plot deals with a group of
difficulties. They arrive at a "dude"
