OPENS MONDAY
A LAND OF DREAMS COME TRUE
FOR BOYS AND GIRLS
Santa Claus, hunting the earth for new toys, must
have come across Aladdin's lamp, and just wish-
ed the most wonderful toys in the world to be
here - today - for the boys and girls of Ann Ar-
bor - for here they are.
More dolls than you'd have thought were in the world. Me-
chanical toys that do miracle stunts. Doll houses with every-
thing up to date. And charming picture books, magic lanterns,
air ships, submarines, automobiles, fire engines, every animal
that was ever seen - Oh, it would take too long to tell the
half of it.
FOR THE GIRLS there are: dolls, doll clothes, beds,
swings, blankets, dishes, books and games.
FOR THE BOYS: electric trains, stations, signal blocks, tele-
phone poles, everything to make a complete electric line, Mecca-
nos, guns, drums, horns, games and books.

rare, Personal interviews with John Mc-

But Coimack are often sought, yet seldom
man, granted.
just After the concert Tuesday night, Mr.
mile, I MCormack was besieged with rfport-
e out srs for just a word from the famous
it he tenor's mouth. An efficient manager
the and press agent successfully kept them
away, but, unobserved, a daring fresh-
man wormed his way back of the press
agent to Mr. McCormack, himself.
"Pardon me, sir," he said. "But
would you be so kind as to give me
the privilege of hearing you talk and
shaking your hand?" The Famous
Man looked surprised, and then said,
"Why, certainly," at the same time
acquiescing with the request,
"You see," continued the wary fresh-
man, "I'm just about bankrupt from
buying your records. Ever since I
can remember you have been my hero,
and after all these years of waiting,
I couldn't resist coming to talk with
-ou tonight."
At that the big tenor burst out
-(laughing and in his congenial way
called to his manager. "Hey, Mac-
Swinney, come over here. I've got a
fellow who is bankrupt buying our
records!" And once again Mr. Mc-
Cormik burst out laughing.
After this start, things went more
easily, and, though the rest of the con-
cnversation with the Famous Man is
secret, we judge the freshman didn't
- regret his rash action.
A few minutes later, flanked on one
side by Mr. McCormack's manager and
on the other by Donald McBeth, vio-
"inist, the man of 1925 was seen es-
-corting them to the Union. And a
few words drifted back, "When we re-
turn from our southern tour, I prom-
ise to send you an autographed photo-
graph of Mr. McCormack-yes, you'll
get it about Dec. 1."
- One freshman went to bed happy
last Tuesday night.
