The taxi war is on again.
This morning every cab com-
pany in the city will be carrying
passengers at 25 cents a load with
no charge for extras, anywhere in
nn Arbor.
The decision was made last
night at an owners' meeting pre-
cipitated by the sudden rate-cut-
ting move of Frenchy LeBeau's
Arcade Cab Co. Working under
cover, Frenchy and his partners
circularized the fraternities, soror
ities and dormitories yesterday
afternoon, intending to introd.uce
the slash to 25 cents as a complete
Decide on "E ezeout."
The owners got wind of the move
almost at once, however, td after
giving the former wildcat a. chance
to rescind,, which--he -refused, de-
cided on a "freezeout"
-Th former rates, in effect fo
most of this semester, were 35 cents
for the first passenger, and 10 cents
each for extras, After they bring
Frenchy to subniission, the opera-
tors intend to return to a more rea-
sonable rate than before-35 cents
for one passenger, 50 for two to five,
and 10 centsfor extrass
At the "war" rate, all cabs will
be running at a loss, so there can
be no hope of prices staying that
low permanently, the owners ex-
plained last night.
Meters Favored.
The storm broke almost at an
mient's notice last'night, but timic
.was found at the meeting to discuss
a permanent basis of operation. A
majority was in favor of meters,
but until the rest can be brought
to unanimity, the question will rest.
Edward J. McCormick, student
-ouncil president, who attended the
meeting, was of the opinion that
meters are the only reliable perma-
nent system, if a reasonable charge
can be asured. They would assure
the owners of a fair revenue, elimi-
nate unreliable independents, and
prevent indiscriminately high rates
for students, he said.

Robin Hood' Will Be Presented
by Combination of Drama,
Music Societies.
DeKoven's popular light opera,
"Robin Hood," has been chosen for
the operatic production being spon-
sored by the newly formed comn-
bination of campus dramatic and
musical societies. This show, based
on the story of the well known le-
gendary hero, besides containing
the best wit of the period, lends

itself easily to interesting staging
effects, it was brought out. ALso
the music of DeKoven's work con-
tains a number of infectious melo-
dies which are still in favor.

the production which will be pre-
sented some time in March in-
