the work in dramatic interpi4. ution
and production done in the theate'
laboratory cf the University. The play
is acted andi diract d entirely by the
members of the classes, under the
supervision of Professor Earl E.
The story deals with the troubles
of Fred Minick and of his wife, Net-
tie, when the former's aged father
comes to make his home with them.
The play was first produced by Win-
throp Ames at the Booth Theater in
New York in 1924, with Phyllis Po-
vah, a Michigan graduate, creating the
role of Nettie. It enjoyed a run of
considerable success at that tme. Ed-

authors, have since produced "Show

In tomorrow evening's presentation,
Samuel Bonell is cast in the leading
role of Old Man Minick. Bonell's fre-'
q1ient appearances in scampus pro-
ductions and with the Rockford Play-
ers have made him well known to Ann
Arbor audiences. Since he is gradu-
ating at the close of the Summer
Session, this will be his final ap-
pearance in university theatrical's. '
The leading feminine role of Nettie
Minick is to be played by Jeannette
Dale, who is remembered for Bher
work with Comedy club, and in "Alice
Sit By the Fire" with the Harris Play-
ers Ilst spring. Milton Kendrick, who
did some work with the Rockford
Players this summer, is playing oppo-
site her as Fred Minick.

Delivering the last lecture of the
summer, Prof. H. I. Priestly of the
history department at the University
of California will lecture at 5 o'clock
tomorrow afternoon in Natural
Science auditorium on the subject of
"Our Mexican Neighbors."
Professor Priestly, who has been
teaching several courses in historyj
during the Summer Session, is a
noted authority on Mexico, having
spent many years in that country
studying its problems and character-
istics. The lecture will be accom-
panied by a series of motion pictures

Movie houses in Ann Arbor are
offering a varied brand of entertain-
ment for students during examina-
tion week. In an effort to 'soothe the
jaded nerves of weary exam-takers
the managers have furnished a pro-
gram including pugilism, comedy,
passion, mystery, and an exhibition
of the terpsichorean art.
The Majestic blatantly announces
the. "complete and official and only local
showing of the world's championship
Tunney-Heeney fight pictures." These
films, which have been shown in the
larger cities since the day after Tex
Rickard dropped a few "grand" in I
putting on one of his Roman holidays,
are reputed to show "every round,
every blow" The fatal tenth and
eleventh rounds are shown in slow
The feature would seem to be aI
modification of the same theme, being
an exhibition of female pulchritude
and cussedness by Miss Clara Bow
in "Ladies of th Mob." It is expect-
ed that all of Lark's co-ed friends
will attend, as the "ads" say she "gets
her man in a new! way-bang!"
Success of Present Residences May
Foretell Erection Of
Many More
Dormitories for women, which are
so vital a part of the lives of so many
Michigan women today, are really a
comparatively modern development in
the co-educational college. The three
large dormitories or residences for
women on this campus are Helen
Newberry and Betsy Barbour, which,
are now open, and Martha Cook,
which is closed during the Summer
Helen Newberry was the first resi-
dence hall for women to be opened
on this campus. It was the gift of
Mrs. Henry B. Joy, who is the presi-.
dent of the board, and her two broth-
ers, Mr. Truman H. Newberry and
Mr. John S. Newberry, in memory
of. their mother, Helen Newbery.
Some years earlier, Mrs. Newberry
had shown her interest in the uni-
versity by- donating Newberry hal'
which is fiight next to the-dormitory,
for the religious work among women
on campus.
So in 1913 Helen Newberry resi-
dence hall for women was built and
the Senior women of that year used
it for their class house party.
Martha Cook was the second dor-
mitory to be opened on campus. This
was the gift of Mr. William Cook, who
also gave the Lawyerls' Club. It is
an honorary dormitory for senior and
junior women.
The third dormitory to be opened
at Michigan was Betsy Barbour house
in 1920. This dormitory was the gift
of Mr. Levi Barbour, who also gave
generously toward the women's gym-
nasium which is named for him.
ALBANY, N. Y., Aug. 11.-At an
hour this morning when ordinarily
he still would have been found asleep,

Gov. Smith got back to Albany from
Chicago, where he attended the fu-
neral of George E. Brennan, Illinois
Democratic leader.
Confronted with the task of whip-
ping his acceptance speech into final
form, the Democratic presidential
nominee went from the train to the
executive mansion, where he planned
during the day and over the week-end
to apply himself to that job.
The governor also was expected
with members of his family, to lis-
ten in there this evening to the ad-
dress of his rival, Herbert Hoover,
at the Republican nominee's notifica-
tion in California.
He returned to the executive man-
sion with the assurance of various
Illinois leaders that he would carry
Illinois, a task proved difflicult in
previous years for a Democrat.

The ice-coated Michigan, the "Chi-
cago Theater" of Ann Arbor, swings
into a light vein with the presentation!
of "Detectives" featuring Karl Dane
and George K. Arthur. These gentle-
men from the "oil" fields of Holly-
wood are listed as "laugh sleuths."
Query-are these stars hired by the
management to ferret out the laughs,
or can the audience find them with-
out help?
Besides the usual hors d' oeuvres or
"hors de combat" of short film sub-
jects and "snooze reels" the college
boys will be regaled with a spectacle
entitled "Revue Casino de Paris"
(you garter go) with the Misses Allen
and Ruth, assisted by "Eight Lenora
Steppers." All prospective Michigan
Opera "hoofeils" are expected to at-
tend this object lesson.

PALO ALTO, Cal., Aug. 11.-Sen-
ator George H. Moses today formally
notified Herbert Hoover of his nom-
ination by the Republican National
Convention as the Republican candi-
date for President of the United
States, telling him it is a "veritable
crusade," he has been chosen to lead.
The text of the speech follows:
"We come by the direction of the
Republican National Convention,
which is the highest, most representa-
tive and most authoritative body in
our party organization.
That convention has instructed us
to bring to you a. formal notification
of its action in selecting you as the
Republican candidate foil Presidency.
"Your selection, sir, was made with
a unanimity never before seen when
this great prize in our public life
has been incontest. In this regard
the convention accurately reflected
the desires of an overwhelming
preponderance of Republicans who
were not to be denied in their pur-
pose to commit our cause to your
. Praises Unanimity
"The convention which gave you
the nomination now officially present-
ed, also formulated a declaration of
principles which constitutes the chart
of Republicanism fornthe next four
years. In our platform will be found
a reiteration of those fundamentals
of Republican policy which are tra-
ditional and through which our coun-
try has been able to accomplish so
much for our country and it's peo-
"The spirit of our platform is un-
mistakable-and it springs from our
record of faith kept throughout the
entire period of our party historiy.
This spirit, you, sir, personify. We
know that in your leadership this
spirit will enlighten and enkindle the
co-operation not only of the great
party which has sought you out, but
that it will engender the commander-
ship of that other gr3eat body of vot-
ers whose independence of political
thought finds expression in the com-
pany of those like you, who maintain
purity of ideal in association with or-
ganized partisan activity.
"In this we know that you will not
seek to transcend or to distort or to
nullify any portion of your party's
platform or any portion of the con-
stitution of the United States from
which our platform springs. We
know that your interpretation of
fundamental principles-both in the
constitution and the platform-will
ring true.

the constitution forbids is , nullifica,
tion," he said. "This the American
people will not countenance."
Recognizing the abuses of enforce-
ment under existing enabling acts,
Hoover said these must be remedied
after "an organized searching inves-
tigation of facts and causes," had
pointed the way to the wise method
of correcting them.
_ "An adequate tariff is the founda-
tion of farm relief," he said in put-
ting this first in his program. De-
velopment of the great water arteries
came second.
"The-ye is no more vital method of
farm relief," he declared.
"The working out of agricultural
relief constitutes the most important
obligation of the next administra-
tion," lie added. "I stand pledge to
these proposals.
"In this land, dedicated to toler

tolerence. I come of Quaker stock.
