Only Chance During Summer; Tick-
ets May Be Obtained at Office of
Summer Sesso n
Tickets for visitors nights at the
observatory are not going fast, and
as the first three evenings this week
will be the only chances offered dur-
ing the entire summer, those inter-
ested should obtain their tickets at
once. One hundred and fifty people
divided into three squads can be han-
dIed each 'evening. Tickets can be
secured by presenting the students'
receipt, at the summer session office.
Weather conditions were so unfav-
orable last night that the large tele-
scope could not be exposed for the
visitors at the Observatory. The
maller apparatus was used to look
at the moon, despite the fact that
the sky was semi-cloudy during the
latter part of the evening. A large
number of visitors were present.
Most Modern
Owing to the distance of the Ob-
servatory from the campus, the great-
er part of the student body does not
realize that it is one of the most mod-
ern in the United States, containing
some of the most perfectly made in-
struments that have ever been in-

igan passed them again in the sev-
enth with two more runs on singles
by Bennet and Robbins, and a two
base hit by Rychener. The infield lost
the lead, however, in the teachers'
half of the inning, by heaving the ball
all over the lot.
Once more the game shifted to
Michigan wien in the eighth hits by

two runs. The teachers counted once
in their half of the inning when a
throw-in from the outfield went into
the State Normal bench and allowed
the runner to reach the plate.
Blow-up in Ninth
In the ninth with the score tied
Scheidler struck out the first two
men, and then came the blow-up that
lost the game. Sherman dropped a
fly and pegged through second base
to home. Robbins' peg back to sec-
ond was missed and the runner scor-
ed the winning run.
Ypsilanti will probably play here
Saturday, and a practice was held
yesterday to try to iron out some of
the faults that lost the game Satur-
day. Another will be held Thursday
afternoon, and tryouts are asked to
report at that time.,

Ibsen and Shakespeare Plays Please
Large Audiences at Saturday
(By P. A. Shinkman)
Ann Arbor was given its first taste
of Ibsen in some time when the El-
sie Herndon Kearns players present-
ed "The Master Builder" by that au-
thor last Saturday afternoon in the
Campus theater.
George Carleton Sties itt h tWti
role made a decidedly realistic char-
acter of the high-strung, impetuous
"builder of homes," who finds that he
has been forced to sacrifice personal
happiness to a'chieve the goal of
"Master Builder." His interpreta-
tion of the role inspired both sympa-
thy and admiration of Halvard Sol-
ness, the great builder, who finally
makes the supreme sacrifice in the
midst of his life's work.
Miss Kearns as Hilda Wangel
Hilda Wangel, the friend of the
family who forces the Master Builder
to a realization of himself and suc-
ceeds to a certain degree in setting
matters aright, was splendidly han-
died by Miss Kearns, who had only
to be her own self to make the part
a success. Miss Agnes Scott's inter-
pretation of the colorless wife whose
life was ruined as a result of her
husband's ambition, was excellent
and inspired perhaps the greatest
sympathy of all the characters.
The play has a purpose and sets
out immediately to accomplish it.
Although it is far from being as
adaptable to outdoor presentation as
are the plays of Shakespeare, the
staging is adequate. In spite of the
fact that it was perfect attention, the
play is better suited to the confiden-
tial atmosphere of the enclosed thea-
ter and is rather heavy for the aver-
age mid-summer matinee audience.
"The Tempest" Well Played
Shakespeare's "The Tempest,"
which was staged in the evening, is
the ideal outdoor play with its pic-
turesque dancing sprites and fairy-
tale enchantments. Mr. Somnes is a
tall, handsome Prospero, right Duke
of Milan, while Miss Kearns is a.
most engaging Mirando, daughter to
Prospero and living with him on the
enchanted desert isle.
Ecellent work was done by Henley
Edwards in the difficult role of Cali-
ban, a savage ' and deformed slave.
The antics of Trinculo, a jester, and,
Stepheno, a drunken butler, as played
by William Rodmore and George
Hare kept the audience in continuous
laughter in spite of the rather broad!
Incidental songs and dances, espe-
cially those of Theodora Keene, add-

Cited for Bravery on May 30 and 1
While Assisting in a Bombard-
For executing bombardments from
an airplane under "the most peril-
ous circumstances," Lieut. Clarence
T. Fishleigh, graduate of the Univer-
sity in the 1917 engineering class,
has received the French Croix de
Guerre, according to a letter receiv-
ed yesterday from his brother. Ma-
jor W. T. Fishleigh.
Lieut. Fishleigh had been at the
front for two months and 10 days,
when on May 30 and 31 he participat-
ed in the bombing expedition which
resulted in the following citation
from the French government.

peditions de l'escadrille et raporte

Iieut. Fishleigh has been actively

Was husiness Manager
Duing his last year in the Univer-
sity Lieut. Fishleigh was business
manager of the Michigan Daily, the
regular session newspaper. He left
to attend the first officers' training
camp at Ft. Sheridan, from which he
entered the aerial service as an ob-
server.. He was a member of several
campus societies.
Besides Lieut. Fishleigh the follow-
ing are among the Michigan men
holding decorations fromeither the
United States or French government:
Lieut.. Renville Wheat, J. D. '16, pos-
sessor of the American War Cross,
and Joseph Fee, ex-'1G, Perry Long,
'20, Dr. John Sherrick, '12, '15 M., A.
F. Paley, '17L, and Walter P. West-
rand, '19P, all holders of' the French
War Cross. This list i probably in-
complete ,as an official list can hard-
ly be compiled until after the war.
President Harry B. Hutchins has
received a letter from the Bureau of
War Risk Insurance, Washington,
stating that the government needs
immediately the voluner services
of trained college men, preferably
from the faculty or among the grad-
uate students, who would be willing
for a period of two or three months
to help conduct and supervise corre-
spondence with the families of our
soldiers and sailors, and with the
inquirers about the War Risk Insur-
ance Act.
Volunteers would be expected to
come to Washington and serve for a
nominal consideration of $100 per
month, which would probably cover
their expenses. Those interested are
requested to consult with Prof. James

W. Glover, room 405, Mason hall.
Professor Glover will be in his office
from 11 to 12 o'clock daily and will
give further information concerning
the needs of the bureau and the re-
quirements of candidates.
