The organization for the annual
Mimes' production, which may be
an opera this year it was announc-
ed, was begun last night at a regu-
lar meeting of the Mimes' organiza-
tion, at which time the committee
appointments were made. The
manuscript con,est shall remain1
open, as announced, until Friday,
midnight. Books may be submitted
at the main desk in the Union.
This year's production will be the
twenty-fifth in the history of the
organization. Starting as one of the
first all-men's campus operas, the
annual Mimes' show has grown to
become one of the oldest and most
colorful traditions, not only of the
University of Michigan, but of that
entire section of the United States
throughout which it has been pre-
It is not yet known whether the
show this year will be in the nature
of an Opera or of a Revue, which
decision will naturally depend upon
the manuscript selected. Last year's
production was an all-campus re-
vue, which was the first time in the
history of the organization that the
traditional Opera had been sup-
planted by other form of dramatic
Although it has not yet been
definitely decided whether or not
women will be in the cast, it is
highly probable that such will be
the fact.
The committees in charge of the
production, to be presented in Ann
Arbor at the traditional time dur-
ing the last full week prior to the
Ohrlstmas rces;, are a' follows:,
ieneral Committee: Beach Conger,
'32; William Tippy, '32E; Robert

Football Classic Arranged for
This Fall, Probably to Be
Held in December.
WASHINGTON, Oct.6.-(P)--
The thrill of another gridiron clash
between West Point and Annapolis,
with the unemployed benefitting,
will be given American football
fans this fall.
Secretary Adams of the navy
department and Acting Secretary
Payne of the war department ten-
tatively arranged ,or a game. Only
details of the exact time and place
remained tonight for settlement.
Several suggestions have been
advanced that this year's game be
played in a city other than New
York, the place of last year's game
which the Army won, 6 to 0. That
game netted about $400,000 for the
Naval officials faored Franklin
Field, Philadelphia.
. Admiral William V. Pratt, chief
of naval operations, has formally
suggested Chicago. Cleveland and
other cities also have been suggest-
The probable date of the game
is Dec. 12. Consideration of secur-
ing as large attendance as possible
may make it necessary, naval offi-
cers said tonight, to play the game
at the Polo Grounds in New York.

Baton Throwing L
to Lead 100-Pie(
When Michigan's colorful 100-
piece Varsity band marches on the
field Saturday afternoon for the
Chicago game, it will have at its
head, Frank 0. Riley, '33E, who, for
the second successive year, will act
as drum major for the organization.
Riley last year was adjudged one
of the leading drum majors in the
Middle West and was highly praised
for his work in Boston when the
band went to the eastern city for
the Harvard-Michigan game. Since
his installation last fall, he has not
failed to astound the crowds be-
tween the halves with his maneu-
vers and ability to lead the band.
Coming to Michigan in 1929 from
Pontiac where he was drum major
of the high school there, he was
immediately made understudy to
Joseph Narrin who filled the posi-
tion that season.
Last year, in a competition with
nine other aspirants, Riley was
picked as permanent leader of the
band and has acted in that capaci-
ty ever since. Since many novel
maneuvers are planned by the band
this year, football crowds are ex-
pected to acclaim him still more.
Student identification cards,
similar to those issued by the
office of the dean of students
last year, will be available in
room 4, University hall, this
week, assistant of Joseph A.
Bursley, dean. of students, an-
nounced yesterday.
Students whose names begin
with the letters A-M may get
their cards Thursday, and the
remainder may apply Friday. It
was stressed that the cards are
to be compulsory for admission
to football games, and that any
student may be required to iden-
tify himself by showing his' card
at any time in any University
institution, such as the Health
service, the Union, and the like.

?rum Major Again
ce Band Saturday
The tradition of throwing the
baton over the goalposts between
the halves, which was started at
Michigan a number of years ago,
will again be continued Saturday
and Riley's record of "catches" still
remains to be broken.
This rite is looked upon by the
fans as an omen depending on
whether the drum major catches
the baton or not. If he catches it,
good luck is foretold for the team
while if he happens to miss, a sure
sign of losing is in the offing. Last
year Riley batted 1000 percent and
Michigan was undefeated.

Fraternities \Divided Into Three
Groups; Dates Assigned
for Rushing.
Fraternities were divided into
three groups and yesterday each
group assigned a day for holding
open houses for freshmen whom
they intend to rush, by Howard T.
Worden, '32, president of the Inter-
fraternity council, and Aoward
Gould, '32, secretary-treas rer.
As stated in the laws of the rush-
ing rules, open houses may be held
on Tuesday, Wednesday, a n d
Thursday, October 20, 21 and 22.
