Local Audience,
Most Auentie,
Violinist Says
The student audience of Ann Ar-
bor is more enthusiastic and inter-
ested than that of any other col-
lege town at which the Philadelphia
Orchestra has player, Jasha Sim-
kin, violinist with the Orchestra for
eighteen years, said yesterday.
"After having been on tour for
three long, tiring weeks, it is a rev-
elation to coine to Ann Arbor and
be treated with such an ovation as
we have received for the last two
nights," he observed.l
Rehearsals from early morning to
the performances which last late
into the night, another member of
the Orchestra complained, keep the
musicians continually busy. 1
When asked whether the playing
of one instrument affects a musi-
cian's conception of the whole com-
position, Samuel H. Mayes, solo 'cel-
list, said that the first few rehearsalsI
of a new number require so much1
concentration that he cannot feelt
the whole thing, but as soon as he
becomes more acquainted with thet
music, he plays as though he were1
a part of the whole, not as an in-i
Working under Thor Johnson,
University Choral Union conductor,1
is not at all difficult, Simkin said,
adding that the Union itself is "a1
very fine group."

Navy Coats

Are Smart For


Navy blue coats are still "just the thing" for spring wear but many
of the styles are quite different from those of last year. For examnple
it is apt to be shirred, scrolled with black soutache or even a half and
half coat, blue in back and a contrasting color in front. A good many
of them have huge pockets, or are hip-length, veering out in back like
a riding coat. 'The old stand-bys, fitted coats, swaggers and reefers
with touc h of pique added are still being worn. Top it with a smart
hat, and you are ready for any occasion.

DOUBLE your enjoyment on
picnics by serving a deli-
ciously cooked, steaming hot
meal-as perfectly prepared
as your dinner at home. It's
easy with an electric cooker-
and inexpensive, too. You can
cook a meal for 10 people at
a cost of about 2c for electric-
ity. And you'll marvel at the
flavor of foods cooked elec-
- 4
Cooks a whole meal
at one time
A roast, two vegetables, pota-
toes and gravy-all these can
be prepared in the cooker at
one time. The cooker is equally
talented in other ways: It will
bake pies, cakes, biscuits and
muffins; steam puddings; stew
meats and vegetables. And it
is large enough to accommo-
date a 15-pound turkey or a
whole ham.
Keeps food warm
for hours
Simply plug into the nearest
convenience outlet. When the
cooking is finished, you can
carry the cooker in your car
and it will keep food warm
for hours.

It was very unusual for a woman
to graduate from the Law School
in 1885, and even more unusual for
her to graduate with class honors,
but to Mary Clara Geigus, there was
nothing odd about it at all. It wasj
the fulfillment of a dream.
There were greater honors in store
for her, however. Little did the
Geigus family dream that the little
daughter born to them on Septem-
ber 7,' 1859, would be a delegate to
the House of Representatives inj
Admitted To BarI
As Mrs. Chester Emory Coulter,
she was admitted to the bar in Mich-
igan and Illinois in October, 1885.'
Although she never practiced law,
her interest and participation in
movements for social reform were
unflagging. It was her work in wo-
men's clubs, politics, and ameliora-
tive movements that brought her
statewide attention.
Previous to her election as only
woman representative in the Fifth
Assembly, she had spent two years
studying in the Orient, a most daring
thing for a woman to do in the
1890's. In the House, she served as
Head of Judicial Committee, and in
that capacity instituted laws for the
betterment of social conditions.
Nor did her political activity cease
after her retirement from the House.
She was very active in women's
clubs and spoke in two national cam-
Delegate To Convention
In 1912 at the time of the Repub-
lican party split, she joined the
Roosevelt faction in Utah and was
a delegate to the Progressive Party
state Convention. As a reward for
her work in behalf of the party,
she became Presidential elector for
the Progressive Party in 1912.
There was a color and vitality to
politics that always appealed to her
energetic personality. Instead of
only complaining that politics did
too little in the way of social reform,
like the rest of her sex, she went
out and did something about it. She
enjoyed her position and power only
in relation to the reform she could
instigate. In an age when a woman's
place was more truly at home, she
went into a .man's world to make a

woman's influence more strongly
At the present time, although 'she
is no longer active in politics, she
still views the political arena with
interest and pleads for a betterment
of soeial conditions.
