Band Heads Prdoession to Court House
Where Oath Is Administered to
New Citizens
Forty-eight members of the Univer-
sity of Michigan second training de-
tachment became citizens of the Uni-
ted States at 2:30 o'clock yesterday
afternoon when they swore allegiance
to the United States.
The men represent Russia, Nether-
lands, Sweden, France, England. There
were two men who refused to be nat-
uralized. One was from Turkey and
the other from Denmark.
Band Heads Procession
The men marched from the head-
quarters of the detachment at 2
o'clock. Van's band lead the proces-
sion, followed by Captain Ralph H.
Duikee and Lieut. Charles H. Hall.
Lieut. Mark A. Millberry, in command
of the 100 men acting as armed es-
cort, was next in line. The 48 men
marched in the rear.
In front of the court house the arm-
*ed escort divided into two lines and
presented arms as the new citizens
marched up the steps of the court
house to the court room, where they
were seated to the left of the judge.
The band was stationed on the judge's
right. The escort took their places
immediately in front of the judge.
Many View Ceremony
Hundreds of Ann Arbor citizens
and soldiers were present in the court
room. The ceremony opened with the
band playing a patriotic air. Federal
Examiner Thompson then examined
the men. Captain Durkee and Lieu-
tenant Hall, acting in the capacity of
witnesses, vouched fqr the loyalty
and integrity of the men. The ex-
aminer then made a motion that the
men be granted their citizenship.
After the judge granted the motion,
the 48 men took the oath of allegiance.
The ceremony was closed by the band
playing the "Star Spangled Banner,"
and the armed escort standing at pre-
sent arms, and the new citizens hand
saluting the flag.
Immediately after this impressive
ceremony the men marched back to
the campus in the same formation.
It is a pleasure to be patriotic when
you have so many delicious substi-
tutes -for meat as you have at the
Arcade Cafeteria.-Adv.

Excellent Artists Assist Local Men
in Putting on Program of Pleas-
Ing Numbers
(By Cordelle Kemper)
The benefit musical given by the
training detachment was musically a
big success. A generous and excellent
program was rendered by the Glee
club of the detachment, assisted by
such artists as Frances Ingram, the
famous contralto of the Chicago opera
pompany; Richard Whiting, the popu-
lar song writer with Jerome Remich
and company, in Detroit; Eddie Mac-
Grath, the popular singer of popular
songs, and our own favorite artists
Robert Dieterle and Earl V. Moore.
It was primarily a patriotic program
begining with America and ending with
Star Spangled Banner, with many pat-
riotic airs between, and the 24 khaki-
clad members of the detachment Glee
club in evidence all the while.
Miss Ingram patriotically donated
her services, receiving only her ex-
penses for the trip. From here she
goes to fulfill engagements to sing
in all the Texas training camps and
other -southern cantonments. She will
Spend "a month or two or more," she
said, in this work. "I'm glad to do it
for our boys," she added. She then
expressed a desire to return to Ann
Arbor sometime and give "a real pro-
gram of my own." She sang an aria
from Don Carlos and many other
songs of every variety.
Mr. Dick Whiting, pianist and song-
writer, and Mr. Eddie MacGrath
brought forth heart-felt applause from
their audience. They gave many of
the best popular songs, especially
those of the patriotic variety. Their
,exhibition showed how popular music
could and should be played.
Mr. Moore's organ number, Chant
de Bonheur, by Lemare, pleased as
usual. And Mr. Dieterle was welcom-
ed with the same enthusiasm that has
Peen his on previous occasions.
Mr. Kruse, of the detachment, sang
"Gloria" and "Until," accompanied by
Mr. Moore.- He has a powerful and
pleasing voice.
Mr. Krieger, the excellent leader of
the detachment Glee club and detach-
ment quartet, charmed his audiece
with his own composition "Doing Our
Bit in Nursery Land," a clever and
attractive song. He gave as a piano
solo what he called a "singing inter-
pretation of Joan of Arc," an interest-
ing arrangement of that popular air.
Mr. Krieger's splendid conducting
mnade the songs by the Glee club and
quartet attractive numbers on the pro-
gram. The quartet's ukelele music min-
us the ;ukelele was quite the hit of
the evening.
One of the most interesting features
on the program was the surprise of
the evening. Miss Gertrude Duffy of
Chicago, now singing in Detroit, hap-
pened to come out to the concert and
was persuaded to sing a few songs.
