tSeason Opens
Monday -Nityht
'Tlie Brontes' By Alfred
Sangster Will Be First
p Production
Ann Arbor's sixth Dramatic Season
will open Monday night with the pro-
duction of Alfred Sangster's London
success, "The Brontes," with Violet
Kemble-Cooper as Emily Bronte and
Elizabeth Risdon of the New York
Theatre Guild as Charlotte Bronte.
Robert Henderson, director of the
Dramatic Season, owns the American
rights of the play and plans to pre-
sent it next fall in New York City.
According to advance notices, the
season this spring has been planned
to reverse the usual formula of past
festivals. Opening on a note of strong
melodrama with "The Brontes," the
sequence shifts the next week to "And
So To Bed," with Mine. Eugenic Leon-
tovitch in the leading role of the
comedy. Rollo Peters will play the
part of Samuel Pepys.
"Meet My Sister," a musical comji-
edy, follows this presentation,'and in-
cludes in its cast Walter Slezak, Olive
Olsen, and Dorothy Vernon.
Add Extra Performance
An extra matinee performance of
"Meet D'rv Sister," has been added to
the originw, program, for Tuesday,
May 29. Its popularity is largely re-
sponsible for this, according to Mr.
Henderson, who added that Miss 01-
sen, whose singing and dancing is a
feature of the production, will leave
for California immediately after the
show closes to fill a moving picture
The fourth play of the season will
be Keith Winter's current New York
production, "The Shining Hour." Vio-
let Kemble-Cooper, Rollo Peters, and
Audrey Ridgewell have leading roles.
The play is being produced by special
permission of Max Gordon and is at-
tracting large crowds at the Booth
Theatre on Broadway at present.
Kean Keith I Macbeth
The last two plays of the season
will be "Macbeth" and "She Loves
Me Not." The former will have Ian
Keith and Florence Reed in the prin-
cipal roles and is promised as a new
interpretation of Shakespeare's "he-
roic melodrama."
"She Loves Me Not" is a farce on
college life and includes in its cast
Gloria Blondell, sister of Joan Blon-
dell, as the cabaret singer who flees
a gang murder to hide in a Princeton
dormitory. It is played on six dif-
ferent stages, often all at once, and
includes singing, dancing and even a
talking newsreel.
The Dramatic Season company just
closed a five-week festival at the
Pabst Theatre in Milwaukee and re-
ports are that it was the most success-
ful ever held there.

Roosevelt Is
Opposed To
President Makes It Clear
That He Is Against A
General Discussion
Partial Payments
To Be Considered
Says He Will Deal With
Each Debtor Nation On
separate Basis
WASHINGTON, May 11- (/') -
President Roosevelt made it clear
today he was opposed to American
participation in any general confer-
ence to consider a settlement of the
world's debts.
At the White House, it was author-
itatively explained that while this
country was perfectly willing to enter
any discussions concerning revision
or readjustment of existing debt fund-
ing agreements with any single na-
tion, the United States would not join
in any general debt discussion,
President Roosevelt has left the
door open for any suggestions from
individual European debtor nations
and there is still, in high official
circles, an expectation that some
hitherto undisclosed move will be
made -either in Europe or in Wash-
ington - to break the apparent debt
The president - despite authorita-
tive information that several debtor
nations have been informed token
payments would no longer insure ex-
emption from the provisions of the
Johnson act - still feels the United
States has laid down no rigid all-
embracing policy.
Any offers of partial payments on
debits due by any debtor nations will,
the President indicated, be given full
and sympathetic consideration. Each
nation will, however, be treated on a
bilateral basis, with each offer to be
considered on its merits.
The President is still marking time
on the preparation of his message on
war debts, but expects to send it to
Congress next week.
Mr. Roosevelt has given no hint of
the nature of the message, but in
well-informed circles it was predicted
that he would make definite sugges-
tions leading toward debt settlement
and not merely transmit a financial
report on the status of each nation's

Dignity And Sport
Canes Tomorrow
r By J011N C. HEALEY
Senior ren rill wrap themselves
in their fourth year dignity tomor-
row and, arme with the canes"em-
blematic of ap roaching graduatio,
stroll forth in tae first of the tradi-
tional senior sp ng activities.
In the old days, shortly after canes
originated as pickets out of the old
campus f'nce, the custom was to put
on one's Suxnday - go - to - meetin'
clothes, cyl foV one's best girl, and
arm in arm and cane swinging, strut
across the campus and back, and then
repeat - but strutting was the main
thing. The idea was to distinguish
oneself from the common run of un-
dergraduates, and to parade long
enough for it to be definitely im-
Of course, it was a bit hard on the
girl friends, but seniors only reached
that exalted state once in the normal
run of things.
For years this practice was followed
annually, and the canes were also
worn on successive occasions after
the initial day, even to classes, but the
urge for nattinegs began to lapse in
the last few springs. This year, how-
ever, prospective graduates united in
a move to revive the tradition to all
its former popularity, and have made
great strides.
Seniors will carry canes tomorrow,
and will continue to do so for the re-
mainder of the year. Because of the
fact that the committee decided to
adopt the stylish straight stick in-
stead of the curved handle, it can
be carried for nearly any event. Com-
imitteemen suggest them as accom-
paniments to any sort of social event,
except canoeing, for every Sunday,
and for any other time the fancy may
strike an owner, or the need for pro-
tection arise. 5
Burr, Patterson, and Auld, Church
Street jewelers, reported that all
canes are ready for delivery between
the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. today.
Silverites Are
SreOf Accord
-With 'Treasury
WASHINGTON, May 11. - W) -
Another conference on silver with
Secretary Morgenthau today left the
majority of the Senate's white metal
bloc confident that a virtual accord
on legislation had been reached with
the administration.,
Even the heretofore pessimistic
Senators Borah (Rep., Idaho) and
Thomas (Dem., Okla.) said after
talking to the secretary of the treas-
ury that some of the confusion and
uncertainty had been dispelled and
that results might come of the long
series of discussions, after all.
Thomas went further. "I think we
will get a bill, a satisfactory bill," he
But the whole matter will go back
to the President once more and a final
decision is expected at a parley with
him next week by the eight members
of the Senate silver bloc.
The prospective two-point program
-nationalization of domestic silver
stock and a declaration of policy that
silver should comprise 25 per cent
of the metallic monetary reserve -
remained ungauged by today's discus-

Two Concerts
To Conclude
May Festival
Moore, Choral Union, And
Chicago Symphony Are
On Program Tonight
Bori Delights A
Large Audience
Margaret Martindale Is
Conductor Of Stanley
Chorus And Orchestra
The 41st annual May Festival will
be brought to a fitting climax tonight
when Dr. Earl V. Moore, the Chicago
Symphony Orchestra, and the Uni-
versity Choral Union will present for
its initial American performance
Robert Heger's choral work, "Ein
Friedenslied (A Song of Peace)." Coe
Glade, contralto opera star, will be
featured at this time as well as in
this afternoon's concert.
Lucrezia Bori, distinguished Metro-
politan soprano, presented an un-
usually brilliant performance before
a capacity crowd last night in Hill Au-
ditorium. An enthusiastic audience
recalled the soloist for four encores.
Mrs. Rhead Accompanist
The major part of Mis Bori's pro-
gram consisted of French and Span-
ish songs. Her gracious manner to-
ward the audience increased the ap-
plause after the aria, "Voi che sa-
pete," from Mozart's "Marriage of
Figaro," and the recitative and aria
from Debussy's "L'Enfant Prodigue,"
Her third number was the aria, "De
puis le Jour," from the opera "Louise,"
by Charpentier.
Mrs. Mabel Ross Rhead, of the
School of Music faculty accompanied
Miss Bori at the piano for her en-
cores. They were "Estrellita," "Clave-
litos," "The Cuckoo Clock," and a
Spanish folk song. The Chicago Sym-
phony Orchestra presented Moussorg-
sky's "A Night on a Bare Moun-
tain"; Brshnyl' "Symphony No. 4 in
E minor"; and "Povot Rouge," by
Gliere, described as "a sailor's song"
Frederick Stock, conducting the or-
chestra, introduced a novelty to the
program by repeating the latter num-
ber, playing each section backward.
Guila Bustabo, young violinist, wa
featured in the first afternoon concert
yesterday. She played two numbers
the "Introduction and Rondo Capric-
cioso for Violin and Orchestra," by
Saint-Saens, and the andante and
rondo-allegro from the "Symphonic
Espagnole," by La.
Student Conducts
The Young People's Chorus, made
up of 400 boys and girls from local
schools, turned to a lighter vein in its
program. First the chorus sang a
group of three songs, "On Wings oI
Song," by Mendelssohn; Schubert'
"Hedge Roses"; and Strauss' "Blut
Danube Waltz." The second presenta.-
tion of the chorus was the charmin
cantata, "The Ugly Duckling," b
English. Miss Juva Higbee directec
the chorus in all its numbers.
Margaret Martindale, '34SM, made
a name for herself in her conduction
of the Stanley Chorus and a small
orchestra in "By the Rivers of Baby-
lon," by Loeffler. This was the first
time a student had ever conducted a
May Festival number,

Leaves Jail To Enter
Luke's Hospital; 'To
Free Service


CHICAGO, May 11-. ) ()- Sam-
uel Insull was at liberty tonight -on
$250,000 bail.
Released from Cook County jail
by friends who put up that amount,
the deposed utilities czar went at once
to St. Luke's Hospital to rest from
the strain of his stay in jail. He will
rest in the hospital without cost. The
superintendent said this was in re-
payment of Insull's contributions to
the institution when he was the city's
wealthiest man.
Free after making a record bond
which he had called "impossible,"
Insull has two appointments.
Next Tuesday he must answer guil-
ty or not guilty to two charges the
Feneral Government has against him.
Then, too, a court will rule on his
charge that he was "shanghaied" off
of his seagoing refuge, the Greek,
freighter Maiotis.
Wednesday he will be arraigned
and asked to answer State charges
of embezzlement, connected with
sums taken from Middlewest Utilities
to meet brokerage accounts of his
brother, Martin.
As he left the County Jail Hospi-
tal, dressed in dark blue business
clothes again instead of the maroon
bathrobe which has been his jail uni-
form, Insull waved goodbye to the
other inmates and said, "Well, boys,
good luck to you all. And if I don't
come back here, I want to wish each
one of you the very best."

Jeannette Vreeland Voices Her
Opinion On The May Festival

A straight-forwardness and sense
of humor that are delightful would
mark Jeannette Vreeland, soprano of
the May Festival, for the remarkable
American that she is,
Having married her singing teach-
er, Percy Rector Stephens, Miss Vree-
land thinks that she "got a bargain,"
for, she said, "look at all the free les-
sons I received. Seriously though, he's
not at all like his name."
Miss Vreeland lived in Denver and
at the age of 22 she had almost given
up any hope for a future in music
because she had had so many incom-
petent teachers that her voice was
nearly ruined. When Mr. Stephens
came to Denver, her father persuaded
her to resume her studies under his
direction. Mr. Stephens was im-
pressed by her voice and convinced
her that she should study in New
