Senior Girls Give Picturesque
Drama Of French Middle Ages

Festivities Will Begin at 7:20
Morning With Bugle Call and
Hoisting of t ag


Glenn Frank, who since 1921 has
been editor of the Century magazine
will deliver the commencement ad-
dress Monday morning at Ferry field
when the classes of 1924 will receive
their diplomas. The subject of his
address is not yet known.
Mr. Frank is an educator and edit-
or of considerable note. From 1912
to 1916 he was assistant to the pres-
ident of Northwestern university and
for three years following this time
was associated with Edward E. Fil-
ene in Boston engaged in research and
organization work. From 1919 until
his appointment as editor in chief,
he was as associate editor of the Cen-
tury magazine. Mr. Frank has been a
lecturer in the United States and
Canada since 1912, and was a member
of the group headed by Chief Justice
Taft which formulated.a draft of the
League of Nations cbvenant which
was considered by the peace confer-
ence at Paris in 1918.
Commencement day, which is sched-
pled for Monday will begin at 7:30
o'clock in the morning with the bugle
call and the ceremony of hoisting the
flag on the campus. At 7:45 o'clock
the procession will form, preparatory
to marching down to Ferry field.
fraduates will assemble at their re-
spective stations under the direction
of. the class presidents. The proces-
sion is under the direction of Chief
Marshal Prof. L. M. Gram, and Assist-
ant Marshal Prof. James IH. Cissel.
Regents, ex-regents, deans, and candi-
dates for the honorary degrees will
meet in room B3 o' Alumni Memorial
hall at 7:45 in th morning. Other
members of the faculties will assem-
ble in the west gallery, on the second
floor of Alumni Memorial hall at the
same time. The procession will march
down State street and the blaring of
the bugles, the fluttering flags, the
bright colors of the academic hoods,
the somber black of the graduates
costumes all lend an air of dignity
and of pageantry as the procession
enters Ferry field for the commence-
ment exercises.
A stand has been built on Ferry
field, facing the south stand, and has
been provided with amplifiers to mag-
nify the voice of the speaker. The
University has taken the precaution
to insure the day against rain. An in-
murance policy of $2,000 has been tak-
on out to insure against any upsetting
of plars in oase of rain.
At Ferry field, the exercises will in-
dlude the address of the speaker, the
presentation of each class by their re-
spective deans, the giving out of the
diplomas as each class marches across
the stand and receives the sheepskin
from the hand of Dr. Burton, and the
granting of the honorary degrees.
Dublin, June 3- --Prof. Timothy A.
Siiddy, of 'Cork, has been appointed
minister plenipotentiary of the Irish
re tate at Washington.

By I. B. Henderson
We have all seen Professor Brumm's
productions- "A Thousand Years
Ago," "The Romancers,' "Pantaloon,"
"Every girl," not to mention the re-
cent litle rodent, "The Gray Mouse,"-
and each successive performance moreI
puzzling defies analysis: either the1
crowd is a pack of dyspeptic grumb-
lers or the director is without a sense
of shame.
To begin with, "If I Were King," is
entirely too ambitious a spectacle forf
amateurs to even consider, much less'
an all-girl's organization. The play,
in itself is little more than a frank
plagarism from "Cyrano de Berger-
ac" and a very feeble one at that, re-
quir ng.a large cast costumed with all
the reputed glory of the Moyen Age
and settings ranging from a tavern to'
a court garden on to a gibbet.
The point Is that the play is thor-
oitghly artificial and in absolute need
of the brawling vigor such as only a
Hampden or a Southern can give tol
make it less than a ridiculous fan-
tasia. Picture, therefore, the presentl
result of pretty or neo-beautiful girls
vainly attempting to swagger through
stagey beer-fests and braggadocio
court-duels. With the most candid,
fairness, an audience really can hard-
ly be satisfied with such obviously
mistaken ideals: particularly, and it
should be repeated again and again,

when the seats are placed at profes-
sional prices.
The intermissions between each of
the four acts were so long, that any
chance atmosphere quickly trickled
away in the lobby. In this connection
the fault. may possibly lie with the
scene-designer, C. O. Davis, who
should have known enough to copy
Claude Bragdon's permanent setting*
for Walter 1[ampden's production of
"Cyrano de Bergerac," especially since
the scenes are so nearly identical. In-
cidently, Mr. Davis' design for the
Garden scene was simply-and you
can say it with the coolest conscience
-simply pathetic. In these latter days
of artists like Gordon Craig and Nor-
man Bel-Geddes such antedated exhi-
bitions of painted perspective are in-
The production did, however, con-
tain one outstanding performance in
the characterization of Dorothy Rock-
well as Huguette, as beautiful and'
moving as I personally have ever seen
on the amateur stage, and, if it were
not that one would be accussed of
ridiculous exaggeration, one might
drop the word amateur unqualifiedly.
In any case she. completely accomp-
lished what we all strive so seriously
for: she perfectly submerged her per-
sonality into the flesh of her vivid
role; she was striking at nearly every
(point, and in her final death scene she
was very trgly inspired.

Graduating Students and Faculty Will
Wear Caps and Gowns In
Sunday's event of the day in the
round of Commencement formalities
for seniors and alumni and guests will
be the baccalaureate address to be de-
livered in Hill Auditorium in 11 o'clock
by William Lowe Bryan, President of
Indiana University. It is planned that
the graduating classes of all the col-
leges and schools will assemble sep-
arately, and formed in column of twos,
will march to the terrace in front of
the auditorium, arrivingrthere a few
minutes before the hour. Caps and
kowns will be worn by theg raduating
students and by members of the fac-
ulty who are also to be present at
the ceremony. I
President Bryan, whose arrival in
Ann Arbor is expected today, is wide-
ly recognized as al able speaker, and
whatever he may choose to speak
about on Sunday morning, his audi-
ence is assured of much worth while
thought from him.
For a number of years now Dr. Bry-
an has held his present office in 'the
Indiana University in Bloomington
from which school he was himself
graduated in 1884. Later he travelled
in Europe and studied first in Berlin
and then at Paris and Wurzberg. He
obtained his Ph. D. in 1892 from
Clark University, and went soon after
to Indiana University asinstructor In
Greek. Later he held the chair of
philosophy there and in 1902 was
made president.
President Bryan is the h;ooor of
several honorary degrees, the latest
having been grante4 in 1918 by the
University lg Michigan.
While he is here, President Bryan
will he the guest of the 1n7ierei'ty.
Should the weather make it im-
possible to carry out plans for thej
senior 1're across the campus, they
*ill assemble irectly in Hill Auditor-
iuam where further arrangements will
be. made for seattag them according to'

By Carl E. Ohlmacher
By virtue of superior work at bat
and in the field, Michigan's Varsity
baseball nine snowed under the team
representing Meiji university, Tkio,
Japan, by a score of 16-1 yesterday
afternoon at Ferry Field.
The visiting aggregation put up a
stiff battle until the sixth Inning, hold-
ing the Wolverines to a 3-1 lead, but
the Michigan team started hitting
heavily in the sixth and scored 13
runs in the next three frames. Yasuda,
who started the game for the Jap nine
was driven to cover in the sixth, and
his successor, Vakamuda, was batted
'hard. The hitting of the winners
was accompanied with some rather
loose fielding on the part of the
Meii infield.
Led After Fourth
The Michigan team got away to a
one run lead in the first inning. Giles
and DeView were both thrown outby
Hayashi, the Nippon shortstop, but
Kipke was hit by a pitched ball, and
crossed the plate on singles by Blott
and Haggerty. The Meiji nine tied
the score in their half of the fourth
when Kumaai drew a base on balls,
a&ad scored when Haggerty threw into
right field in the attempt to nab
Dimon at first.
The Wolverines regained the lead
in the last of the fourth, and from that
time on were never headed or threat-
ened, the losers being unable to cross
the plate. Blott opened the inning
with a Texas Leaguer to left center.
Haggerty and Dillman were unable to
connect, but Wilson drove a home run
to deep left center scoring Blott ahead
of him.
Play Fast Ball
The fifth was scoreless for both
teams, but the Wolverines added three
runs to their total in the sixth. Two
bases on balls, singles by Haggerty
and Jablonowski, who played right
field for Coach Fisher's team an
error, a sacrifice by Wilson resulted
in the trio of counters that put the
winners in the lead. In the next
frame, the Wolverines ran wild, scor-
ing seven runs on four hits, a field-
er's choice, two wild pitches, three
errors, anda stolen base brought De-
View, Kipke, Blott, Haggerty, Dilinan,
,Jablonowski, and Stryker across the
plate. Four hits and a sacrifice fly
gave Michigan three more tallies -in
the eighth.
The losing team played exceedingly
last ball at times, and showed plenty
of fight. Their fi'elding was good
with the exception of the seventh in-
ning, when they were apparently rat-
tled by the rush of their opponents.
Yakazowa, playing second base field-
ed with the excellence of a natural
ball player and Amachi, the Meiji
catcher, provided one of the features
of the game with his beautiful catch
of Giles' foul fly in the seventh inn-
i Stryker Pitches
Stryker started the game for Michi-
gan, and held the Japs . to two hits
during the seven innings he' worked.
Shoesmith took over the hurling in the
eighth inning, and kept the visitors
away from the plate for the remaining
two frames.
The Wolverines were in a hitting
streak, collecting 15 safe bingles.
Captain Jack Blot, with three out of
four times up, and Haggerty, with four
out of five, led the Michigan attack.
The stands were well sprinkled with
representatives of the various classes
holding reunions, and one member of
the '99 delegation, entertained the
spectators between innings with his
accordian }solos.
