EXHIBITION AT UNIVERSIT Y MUSEUM
FEATURES RARE POISONOUS LIZARDS,
Gila monsters, the only species of
poisonous lizards in the world, fea-
ture the exhibit of snakes and liz-
ards on the landings of the Uni-
versity Museums building.
Found in deserts, the particular
specimens on display come from
Texas and Mexico. Due to theirten-
vironmenzt, the animals are quite
sluggish. They exist on eggs chiefly,
and in captivity show a fondness
for hamburgers. The poison is lo-
cated in the teeth, according to Mrs.
Helen T. Gaige, curator of amphi-
bians, in charge of the exhibit.
When the lizard bites, it holds on
like a bull dog, excreting the poison
as it chews. The Gila monster stores
its excess food in its tail, using it
when deprived of daily nourish-
"Desert animals," Mrs. Gaige ex-
plained, "are not used to water in
their natural surroundings, but
when placed in captivity they seem
to enjoy lying in it all day."
The exhibit also contains a hog-
nose snake from Texas. This reptile
is quite similar to a cobra in mark-
ings and actions. While harmless, it
has the habit of flattening the part
of the body just inf erior to the
head, and puffing the rest of the
body up. By this it emits a hissing,

But Foot Intervenes
EVANSTON, Ill. Oct. 16. - (P) -
Gene de Servi got his name on page
one of a Chicago newspaper Thurs-
day with a meelee which may prove
as memorable as the one he staged
with the iron dog,
In case you failed to read about
it at the time, Mr. de Servi is the
former dog catcher who a few years
ago sneaked up from behind some
bushes and pounced upon a dog on
the grounds of a fashionable estate,

was made of iron. The result was
not pleasing to him and he subse-
quently went out of the dog catch-
ing business altogether.
Back on the force as a special
policeman he decided to do some-
thing about the pigeon plague, so
he ,set out for Northbrook. There
on the main street he drew his pis-
tol and coaxed the pigeons around
him by using peanuts as bait. One
of the birds ensconced right by his

Two small boa constrictors from

snakes do not bite, but crush their

the day coiled up with their head

Band Gains Approval
of Alumni Secretary
Many comments were heard fol-
lowing the appearance of a campus
opinion letter in The Daily earlier
in the year, declaring that the R.
0. T. C. should not be a ruling fac-
tor in the Michigan band.
T. Hawley Tapping, genera'l sec-
retary of the alumni association, in
an interview made this statement:
"The news that the Michigan.
Band is to go to Princeton will be
received by our Eastern alumni with
great satisfaction and a good deal.
of enthusiasm, I am sure. Our East-
ern alumni are just as proud of
the Michigan Band as are our grad-'
uates who live in the Middle West
here and have an opportunity to
see the Band on numerous occa-
sions. A great many of those along
the Atlantic seaboard, of course,
saw the organization at Boston and
at the Harvard game last Fall and
it was a source of great satisfaction
to them to hear the favorable com-
ment elicited on all sides.
"Evidently in the East the bands
do not have the benefitof the mili-
tary training which similar organ-
izations do in the West. I think it
is particularly fortunate that our
Band has been priviledged to be-
come connected with the R. 0. T. C.
for in that way the organization is
given the benefit of instructionj
from skilled drillmasters.
"I don't know whether many peo-
ple realize that one of the deciding
factors in the move which resulted
in the R. O. T. C.'s assuming spon-
sorship for the drilling of the Band
came from the alumni; particularly
from the leaders in the Student Re-
lations Committee of the University
of Michigan Club of Detroit.
Members of that Committee look-
ed on unhappily several .years ago
when the University of Indiana
Band appeared on our field and
Play Production will open the
campus dramatic season early in
November with the production of
Alexandre Dumas' "A Marriage of
Convenience," Prof. Valentine B.
Windt of the speech department
stated yesterday. The opening date
is not decided as yet, though steady
work is now in progress on the
According to a statement of Pro-
fessor Windt, director of Play Pro-
duction, the show should provide
an attractive opening for the sea-
son. It is a lightsome French com-
edy of 1750 setting, about, people
who are mannered for manner's
sake. Much laughter comes out of
the particular situation which finds
a husband in love with his wife,
and a wife (ah woe) in love with
her husband. Though neither-for
sake of good taste-admit this to
the other, until-.What can such
a situation bring? Much laughter,,
we are assured, a kind of "lovely"
laughter. For "lovely," says Mr.
Windt, is the only word to describe
comedy of the sort contained in
"A Marriage of Convenience."
The production will be .staged in
Play Production's own Laboratory
Theatre, and a slight admission
will be charged. A new patron list,
it is announced, will be made for
Play Production files from the
names of those attending a presen-
tation of "A Marriage of Conven-
ience."' Names on this list will be
eligible for tickets to Play Produc-
tion's private offerings which oc-

Continues Next Week
In the large gallery of the archi-
tectural building there is an exhibit
of architectural designs.
All the work has been done by
students. This exhibit has been on
display for the last week, but for
the benefit of old graduates who
may be returning for the football
game this week end, the exhibit will
be left up for a few more days.
executed maneuvers which our boys
were incapable of duplicating.
It was discovered that the Indi-
ana Band, as well as many other
Western university bands, have the
benefit of military instruction, so
the Detroit alumni immediately
concerned themselves with discov-
ering whether or not a similar prac-
tice could be followed at Michigan.

vate bills of plays were given by
the students of Play Production,

urged to attend this presentation.
Moore Says Reflection
Is Secret of Lighting
If a lower inside room of a hotel
is made of glass, it will receive less
light than if it contains a few small
windows, Prof. A. D. Moore of the
electrical engineering department
declared in a radio talk yesterday
afternoon over station WJR.
The secret of lighting is multiple
reflection, according to Professor
Moore. It is not the direct illumin-
ation that is responsible for the
brightness of a room, but the light
reflected from wall to wall. It is
therefore possible to increase the
brightness of a room by making the
walls better reflectors of light.
