Union Opera Aspirants
To Meet Today
at Mimes
Music Practically in
Final Form; Lyrics
Being Composed
Men interested in cast positions
in the 1929 Union Opera are asked
to meet E. Mortimer Shuter, direc-
tor of the production, and Robert
Manss, '30, general chairman, at 4
o'clock this afternoon in the Mimes
theatre. No members of the cast
have been chosen thus far, but the
formulating of the cast and chor-
uses will begin as soon as the ver-
satility of the material has been
fully exploited. A number of im-
portant parts in the cast and
choruses, both singing and danc-
ing, are open to men who will apply
this afternoon and prove them-
selves capable of the parts.
To Make Voice Tests
Voice tests for all try-outs will be
held from 4 o'clock to 5:30 o'clock
this afternoon and tomorrow after-
hoon, and from 7 o'clock to 9
o'clock tonight and tomorrow night.
The tests are being held in room
306 of the Union building, and are
being conducted by Roy Langham
who has charge of the training of
the men's singing chorus. All men
must have the voice test, whether
they are interested in the singing
parts, the dancing chorus, or a
speciality number.
Music Almost Complete
Practically all of the music for
the opera has been put into its
final form, and the lyrics are being
composed for the show. The usual

the author or authors of the book,
and even the character of the plot
or the story is not ready to be di-
vulged by the directors of the
Opera activities. It has been pre-
dicted, however, by certain privi-
leged characters who have been al-
lowed to enter the precincts of the
hall in which the music is being
worked over, that the tunes will
create a sensation when they are
presented to the theatre-going
public. All that has been divulged
is that the music this year will in
po way resemble the music from
past productions, or from current
musical comedies. Definite infor-
mation along these lines is expected
to be forthcoming in the near fu-

Showdown at Meeting
Indicates Strength
of Democrats
Congress Given Final
Stand on Proposed
([l4 Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 3 -
The Senate today adopted the
'Democratic proposal to restore to
Congress the powers now lodged
in the President to change tariff
duties after investigation by the
tariff commission. The ,vote was
The decision, the first major test
vote of the tariff in the Senate, was
against the wishe, of President1
Hoover, who had urged retention in
the pending bill of the flexible
principle. Under the minority pro-
posal, the flexible provision, con-I
tinuing in effect the 7-year oldI
policy of preventing the President
to raise or lower rate to the ex-
tent of 501A would be changed to
give Congress the final say on re-
ports on suggested changes. The
Democrats won 13 Republican votes
for their proposal while 4 Demo-
crats voted with the regular Re-
publicans against it.
Democrats Accept Amendment
Before the vote, the Democrats
had accepted an amendment to
their plan, offered by Senator Nor-
ris, Republican, Nebraska, design-
ed to meet objections that Con-'
gress couldn't act on individual
emergency rates without opening
the doors to a general revision that
would limit Congress in its con-
sideration of tariff commission re-
ports to the rates contained in
such reports.
Before the vote was taken, the
Senate rej-ected 47 to 42, an amend-
ment to the Democratic flexible
proposal designed to allow the
President to put into effect tariff
changes reported by the tariff
commission in event Congress
should fail to act on the reports
within three months.
When the Senate convened to-
day, Senator Johnson, Republican,I
California, opened the debate, ex-
posing the Democratic proposal. He
said he still was opposed to the
flexible provision of the tariff law
and that it would be criminal to
1 continue to take away the taxing
power of Congress.
Referring to what he termed "the
power of concentrated wealth in
the East," he said that Californ-
ians desirous of continuing the
flexible tariff provision should have
a care lest they adopt a policy that
would prove injurious to their in-

Richard Cole Is Named
Senior Councilman
Over Farrell
McBride Is Chosen Vice
President owry
Election of Richard Cole, '30, as a
senior councilman last night fea-
tured the first meeting of the 1939-
30 Student council. Selection of of-
ficers and a pep-meeting chairman
were other important acts at the
meeting which dealt largely with
organization matters.
Jennings MacBride, '30, was
chosen vice-president of the coun-
cil for the coming year. Willard Low-
ry, 30, was picked as treasurer, and
Bruce Palmer, '31, secretary. Stan-
ley Cochran, '30E, was named to
handle pep-meetings prior to the
major football games this fall.
Cole won the position, on vote
of the councilmen, in a contest with
William Farrell, '30. The victor,
nominated by Councilman Mac-
Bride received seven votes against
Farrell's five. The latter was nom-
inated3by Councilman Leo Nor-
ville, '30.
The election of a councilman was
necessitated by the occurence last
spring of a vacancy when Council-
man Ernest C. Rief, '30, was elect-
ed president at the all-campus
vote. President Reif had been
chosen the previous year for one of
the two-year positions on the coun-
cil and his promotion left the post
open. Cole will serve the remainder
of this term, which closes June,
Councilman MacBride was made
vice-president in a vote of the
council over Councilman Norville.
Councilman Lowry, retiring secre-
tary, was chosen treasurer without
opposition following a suggestion by
Councilman MacBride that an ex-
perienced man hold this position.
The secretariat, traditionally
given to one of the .junior council-
men was contested for by Council-
men Palmer and Matthew Had-
don, '31.

EAST LANSING, Oct. 3.-Defense
definitely became a problem for
Coach Crowley today as a freshman
team, trotted out like the pro-
verbial sheep for a defensive drill
with the Spartans, swept the Var-
sity squad of the Michigan State
college before them in a maze of
forward passes, line bucks, and end
runs. It was the same freshman
team which before the attack of the
Spartans yielded more than 20
touchdowns in the afternoon
To borrow a picture from my-
thology, suggested by the name
Spartans, State's lack of defense
was surely the fox in Crowley's
bosom. The driving yearlings were
stopped; that is, Coach Crowley
called off the practice and sent his
charges to the showers with never
a word as was the example set long
ago by the Spartan youth who was
the first to carry a fox in the bosom
of his blouse.
The feat of the freshmen -was
an unexpected crescendo to an aft-
ernoon of otherwise commendable
work on the part of the Varsity.

Committees To Be Chosen
Committees for the technical
work of the production are being
chosen by the chairmen who were
appointed last Spring. Each group
of men will have charge of one part
of the production, and be respon-1
sible for its condition.
The latest announcement of the
personnel of a committee was made
last night by William C. Gentry,
'31, publicity director of the show.
Henry Merry, '31, assistant chair-
man, John Reindel, '32, Harold
Warren, '31, Beach Conger. '32, and
Carl Forsythe, '32, will constitute
