Bill at union Gathering
,. This Evening
Former opera stars and prominent
members of the Michigan sMusical
clubs will entertain summer session
men at the smoker to be held on the
lawn of the Michigan Union at 7:30
o'clock tomorrow night. The affair is
complimentary to the men of summer
session, and if well attended, the man-
agement expects to arange other af-
fairs of a similar nature.

ing department, will speak to the
men on various features of summer
session, and Patrick D. Koontz, '14-
'16L, Union president for 1914-15, will
introduce the speaker and make a few
remarks about the nature of the Un-
ion, and itsplans for the future. As
the Union expects to make radical
changes during the next few years,
Koontz promises to make announce-
ments of an especially interesting na-
ture at the smoker tonight.
The musical end of the program
will be upheld by men who have been
principal figures, both in late Michigan
Union operas and in the musical clubs,
which have played their way to the
Pacific coast. Kenneth Westerman,
'14, instructor in the school of music,
and known on the last glee club trip as
the "greatest college tenor in Ameri-
ca," wil sing some of the hits from
"Contrarie Mary" and other operas.
A. 0. Williams, '14E, will produce
some of his vaudeville stunts, which
have made him the most popular of
college entertainers. R. V. Allman,
and Bruce McDuff will also contribute
to the musical program. Gerald
Strong, '15D, will furnish some violin
The Union lawn will be decorated
with an array of Japanese lanterns,
and smokes and punch will be served
free. Ben O. Shepherd, '14L, is acting
as chairman of the committee in place,

Says Average Man's Knowledge About
Emninent Jurist Is
Prof. H. C. Goddard deplored the
lack of knowledge concerning the
greatest Chief Justice of the United
States," John Marshall, in his lecture
on "John Marshall, Master Builder of
the Constitution," in the physics lec-
ture room, Thursday afternoon. The
general ignorance was brought more
clearly to his attention recently, when
people inquired of him what could be
said of John Marshall. He investgat-
ed the reasons, and found that the his-
tories lit use among the schools attach
no particular significance to the man
nor to his role in the interpretation
and construction of the American con-
To bring out the important part that
Marshall played in the national gov-
ersment, Professor Goddard reviewed
his life, in so far as it was related to
the national welfare. "The decisions
of John Marshall, as Chief Justice of
the United States" he said, "are of
far more importance to all of us tha
the acts of most of our presidents."
Most of the pinion of importance

which he handed down were on the in-
terpretation of the Constitution. ;e
showed that Marshall's opinions are
most remarkable because they were
not based on precedent, but on his own
unanswerable reasoniug.. 'Speaking of
