Sell-Outs For Every Performance
Indicated By Heavy Advance
Demand For Seats
Selection of thirty-two members
of the men's and girls' choruses for
the 1928 Michigan Union opera,
"Rainbow's End," has been com-
pleted by E. Mortimer Shuter, gen-
eral director, after a series of cuts
from the large number of avilable
try-outs who have been rehearsing
regularly in the competition for the
coveted places in the choruses of
the show, it was announced yester-
'Tickets for this' year's produc-
tion have been in greater demand
than in past years and sell-outs are
expected for every performance, as
indicated by the advance sale. A
number of good seats are still avail-
able for th~e various performances.
Tickets may be procured from two

usual women's sale and will be
held from two to five o'clock at the

In addition to the regular chor-
uses a special singing chorus of;
twenty-four trained voices will be
carried in this year's company as
an added feature. All the singing
is under Theodore Harrison, direc-;

has a national reputation as a,
chorus director of exceptional
ability. Definite announcement of
the persdns included in the singing

next few days, Shuter stated yes-
Portrays Western Life
"Rainbow's End" concerns itself
with the west and the colorful life
of cowboys and Indians coupled
with visitors from the "foreign"
east. A representative of "Peter
March," the Detroit firm which de-
signed the scenes and designed and'
executed the costumes, spent sever-
al weeks last summer in close
proximity to a tribe of Pueblo In-
dians in an effort to obtain local
color for the show. Many scenes
of an entirely different character
from those ever presented before
on the stage are the result of his
experiences a n d achievements

record of his Michigan football
teams, will deliver the principal
speech at the Freshman banquet
to be held at 6:15 o'clock tomorrow,

Bob Brown, '26, captain and cen-
ter on the 1925 Michigan football
team, will serve as general chair-
man for the Burton carillon drive,
sponsored by all the classes which
were here during the presidency
of the late Marion LeRoy Burton,
it was announced yesterday after-
noon by ' the organization com-
mittee appointed by the represen-
tatives of the classes which are
sponsoring the project.I
Eighty-six thousand dollars has!
been set as the goal in the drive
for funds to install a carillon of
bells in the proposed Burton Me-
morial Campanile. Brown will be
assisted in the campaign by Alfred
B. Connable, '25, who will serve as!
vice-chairman. Members of the
other sub-committees which are toG

have not yet been announced.
Brown, when a member of thej
Maize and Blue eleven was given
recognition as all-Conference cen-!
ter. At present he is a member of
the University coaching staff,
working mostly on line coaching.
Connable was president of the
Student Council at the time that
President Burton died. It was this!
council which gave the original
impetus to the building of a Bur-}
ton Memorial which is finally to
become a reality. It is believed that
this council in addition to recom-
mending that such a memorial
should be erected also gave a fundr
to start the drive.

December 20 will practically "all be

orchestra and chorus no one will
be admitted to the studio for that
program; and on December 13 the
symphony orchestra of the School i
of Music will use the auditorium
making it impossible to take care
of any audience on that night.
