WASHINGTON, Nov. 22.-Con-
gress came out of its periodic
inertia, today as leaders advanced
on the White House to jockey for

position for some of the many leg-
islative projects facing the ap-
proaching short session.
Tariff revision, an extra session,
farm relief, Boulder Canyon dam,
and disposition of Muscle Shoals
were among the subjects brought
before President Coolidge during

Orders To Be Filled On Basis Of;
Priority Of Applications
All male students of the Uni-
versity may 'appy at the maina
desk of the Union beginning to-
day for ticket applications for the
Ann Arbor performances of the
1928 Michigan Union opera, "Rain-
bow's End." The opera will play
at the Whitney theater for five
nightly performances beginning'
Monday, Dec. 10 and continuing
through Friday, Dec. 14 and a mat-I
inee performance on Saturday,
Dec. 15. Prices for the perform-
ances here range from $3 to $1.50.
Mail orders must be at the Union
not later than Thursday, Nov. 28.
A large number of mail orders;
have already been received, accord-.
ing to Paul Buckley, treasurer of
the opera. These have come from;
members of the cast and choruses,
life members of the Union, as well
as from partially paid life-mem-
bers, all of whom received their ap-
plications within the last few days.
Rehearsals of the current pro-
duction are continuing very satis-
factorily, according to E. Mortimer.

"Bob" Cruizet's orchestra has
been secured for the Sophomore
prom to be held Dec. 14, it was an-
nounced today by the committee
through Walter Yeagley, '31, the
chairman. This orchestra is for-
merly of Detroit, and is widely
known throughout the country.
Having played at an unusually
large number of college and uni-
versity dances irk every part of the
country, especially in the south,
during the last two years, the or-
chestra is well adapted to giving
excellent music for occasions such
as the Sophomore prom.
The Sophomore prom is the first
real formal dance of the school
year, and is the first big social
event following t football season.
Consequently, considerable interest
is taken each year in the dance.
With the orchestra selected, the
committee will soon announce the
sale of tickets, according to the
chairman. It is expected that a
rapid sale will be had.
"Bob" Cruizet's orchestra played
at the Pan-Hellenic ball here two
years ago.

Explaining the principles of edu-
cation he is endeavoring to put into
practice at the University, President
Clarence Cook Little, spoke last
evening at the Union before ap-
proximately 125 representatives of
Michigan newspapers. The editors
were assembled at the annual
president's dinner given by the Re-
gents of the University in honor
of the University Press club, which
is holding its tenth annual conven-
tion for three days at the Univer-
Members of the Press club opened
their meeting at 2 o'clock yester-
day afternoon. A second session,
was held in the evening at which
the address of the president was
the principle item on the program.
Sessions are being held throughout
today, and the convention will
close with a business session and
luncheon at noon tomorrow. In
the afternoon the members of the
Press club will be guests of Coach
Fielding H. Yost, and the, Board in
Control of Athletics at the Iowa-
Michigan football game.
Education Is Obligation
"Education in the University is
an obligation, as well as an op-
portunity, to the student. This fact
is based upon recent scientific de-
velopments in the field of educa-
tion, upon the fact that the Uni-

LONDON, Nov. 22.-After a mid-

of King George, Lord Dawson and

J. R. Watkins,A 17L, United States
District Attorney, Will
Represent Alumni
John R. Watkins, '17L, of Detroit,
United States district attorney, has
been selected to deliver the prin-
cipal speech at the third pep meet-
ing of the year to be held at 1
o'clock tomorrow afternoon, in Hill
auditorium, it was announced late
last night.
W atkins, a graduate of the liter-
arX college in 1915, was ,a member
of Druids and Barristers. He will
represent the University alumni
upon the speakers' platform.
Owing to the fact thatramChoral
Union concert is taking place in
Hill auditorium tonight and there
is no other place convenient to
the campus the pep meeting will
be held tomorrow just previous to
the game.
Ask Section To Attend'
All members of the cheering sec-
tion are being especially urged to
attend the pep meeting with their
capes, caps, and megaphones. It
is planned that they will follow the
band down State street to the sta-
dium after the meeting.
The band will appear in Hill
auditorium for the pep meeting
and will play the various Univer-
sity songs. Cheer leaders will be on
hand and will lead the student
body in yells.
According to the present plans
of the Student Council, a student
speaker and someone representing
either the faculty or the coaches
will be secured to speak.
Iii is probable, however, that the
speaker will be selected from the
faculty, if one is secured, as the
coaches will be particularly busy
making last-minute preparations
for the Iowa battle.
"Beat Iowa" Is Slogan
The slogan which is expected t
be the watchword of the session is
a simple "Beat Iowa!" It represents
the concerted belief of the student
body in the team and typifies an
attitude which has been prevaleni
upon the campus since the Illinois
game when the Wolverines, playing
as underdogs, came out of th
woods to win.
The pep meeting is being hel
at an unusual hour, unfortunately
but the Student Councilmen re-
sponsible for its preparation believ
that a large portion of the studen1
body will arrange to be on hand.

Teacher Is Handicapped
"The teacher of singing labors
under the disadvantage of being
obliged to develop the talent he
discovers in a pupil without know-
ing the kind of vocalizing appar-
atus the pupil has. He listens to
the pupil trying to sing, discovers
something of promise, . and starts
from there to teach the pupil prop-
er methods of normal voice pro-
"The range of the pupil's voice is
determined by the result secured
and is often disappointing to both.
It would be of value to both the
teacher and the pupil to know def-
initely 'about what the normal'
range of the pupil's larynx is so
that they might know with some
certainty where to begin and from
what point to extend the range
both upwards and downwards.'
In the other talk on the program,
Glen McGeoch, instructor in the
history of music, spoke on Schu-
bert and his music.
