Has Official Ring for
Time in History
of School.



League, Union Views Engraved
on Sides of Ring; Made in
Gold and Silver.
An official ring has been adopted
by the Student Council for the Uni-
versity of Michigan students. It
is the first time in the history of
the school that an official ring has
been selected.
The ring .is made, with or without
a stone, in gold or silver. Either a
fraternity, sorority or a Law club
crest may begattached to the stone
on the ring.. This combination
makes it both a fraternity or so-.
irority ring, as well as a college ring.
Afront, view of the Uion is en-
graved on one side, while a like
view of the League is engraved on
the other. Below both of these two
engravings is an' image of a wol-
verine, and then the year.
Samples of the rings are now on
display in the Arcade Jewelry Shop,
the official Ann Arbor distributors
of the ring.
Over 200 other schools in the
country have already adopted an
official ring, including such colleges
as Notre Dame; Dartmouth, and Il-
There will be distributors of these
rings, made by Josten's Treasure-
Craftsmen, in all large cities, so
that mmbers of the Michigan
alumni may secure them.

"This year's plays offer good vari-
ety in kind for the stuaent directors
-ranging as they do from melo-
drama to high comedy,"~ he said.
"The directors are showing consid-
erable skill in grappling with the
problems of interpretation and
staging. Indeed, the direction seems
to be better than any I have seen
from students in the past four
When asked what he considered
the value in such a production as
that to be given this Wednesday and
Thursday, Mr. Windt said: "It is of
value to the playwright to see his
'workactually mounted on the stage,
for it subjugates his play to what I
like to call the life-and-breath
"It is not easy to make charac-
ters alive. Often it is a matter of
theatrical trickery, and always it
is a matter of theatre terminology.
Production is one of the finest ways
I know of making a would-be play-
wright think in terms of the the-

at original interpretation. One of
the greatest hardships to a young
director is the existence of stage

Cane Has Unique History.
The Cooley Cane, which has be-
come a respected honorary award
in the past three years, has a back-
ground of which few campus tro-
phies can boast. It was made from
the wood of the staggered wooden
gate posts which at one time guard-
ed tlet: diagonal from strolling eat-
These posts weict usld to a farner
by ihf administration when tHi
fencing was torn down in 1887.
Student, upon learning of the
transaction, visited the farmer, and
secretly took the posts when he re-
fused to sell them. In time the
wood was made up into canes and
Mortimer E. Cooley, then an in-
structor, was presented with one of
them by his students.
The can has since been refash-l
ioned with an ivory and gold head.
It is understood that the junior
who wins the Cooley Can each year
will deliver it over to his successor,
the following spring.
One hundred and forty-two occu-
pations are pursued by parents of
students attending the University
