little to us now, but the satire in
he operetta is still appreciable. The
:nc vement in the play is made in
iuch a manner as to emphasize the
;eneral satire of "Iolanthe."
Al the songs are accompanied by
movements which are carried out in
an effort to catch the atmosphere
of the song. There is a synchroniza-
ion of the movement with the song,
both as to words and music. There
are times in the operetta where the,
music is serious, but the lyrics are
2xtremely humorous. It is at these1
times that movement is used to'
2otmvcy more clearly to the audience
ih real meaning of the song.
There is little in the operetta which
can be considered as dance work in
the recognized form. Movement is
used to help set an atmosphere to
enable the audience to get a better
understanding of the show.

Twenty Years Ago
From the Daily files of
December 4, 1914
Thorough cleansing of Michigan'e
athletic atmosphere is the end sought
by Michigan athletes in a movement
inaugurated last night in Waterman
gym. The chief evils which the ath-
letes hope to correct are dissipation
after football games, betting, use
of profanity by members of Varsity
teams, and the use of cigarettes.

Don Smith, '16E, president of the

in favor of turning the proceeds from
