MORE MATERIAL AVAILABLE
THAN CAN BE USED; BOOK
Following a conference. with Bert
St. John, director of this year's opera,
A. L. Weeks, '10, the author, stated
yesterday that both he and Mr. St.
John were well pleased with the pro-
gress of "Let's Go," and that present
developments point to a production
far superior to any one of recent
A large part of the music was play-
ed over and the scenic effects were dis.
cussed at length.
Surplus of Material
"We have more material than we can
possilbly use, including a large amount
of extra music and dialogue," declar-
ed Mr. Weeks. "There are 22 musical
numbers, with 16 regular songs be-
sides the finales, medleys, and dances.
All but thlee of the songs are com-
pleted. Two scenes of the book are
nished, and I hope to complete the en-
tire book by the end of the week."
St. John and Weeks Old Friends

and Mr. St. John have worked togeth-
er since about 10 years ago, when Mr.
St. John directed the Comedy club's
"The Inspector," and Mr. Weeks play-
ed one of the leading roles. Mr. Weeks
also acted in "Michigenda," which was
directed by Hal Stephens in collabora-
tion with Mr. St. John.

try-outs ard any ones who wish to
try out now will meet at 7:30 o'ciock
this evening in the Nickels arcade hall,

Smiths Hold O vn
In New directory
Tne new Ann Arbor directory which
has just been published shows that in
this city Smiths hold the priority over
all othersin regard to names, and not
only is this so in Ann Arbor but Ypsi-
lanti and Washtenaw county show this
same fact in regard to the name. of
In Ann Arbor, there are 92 Smiths,
in Ypsilanti 82, and in the rural dis-
tricts of Washtenaw county there are
44 Smiths. . The name of Brown is
not so prominent for the new direct-
ory shows 60 Browns in Ann Arbor,
14 Browns in Ypsilanti, and 19 Browns
in Washtenaw county.
In spite of all tradition Jones is not
a common name in comparing figures
with the popular Browns and Jones.
All the Joneses in Ypsilanti, Ann Ar-
bor and the rural districts of Wash-
tenaw county do not equal half the
Smiths of Ann Arbor.
Not only is the name of Smith itself
so popular, but all varieties and vari-
ations of it are found. There are 89
Schmidts in the whole of Washtenaw
county and only 44 Brauns.
The new directory shows that there
are 40 more pople named Smith in
1918 than there were last year.

Jackson, Mich., Feb. 12.--Inmates of
Michigan State prison in this city are
to take up Red Cross work and
through Edward Frensdorf, the ward-'
en, have offered to give 5,000 hours a
week to the manufacture of any ma-
terials which may be needed. The
offer has been accepted by the local
chapter of the Red Cross and the work'
will be undertaken in the near future.
The prison is the largest institution of
the kind in the state and has a con-
vict population in excess of 1,200. Al-
though unable to participate actively
in the world war, the prisoners are

When the campaign for funds was
first launched, by the Red Cross, con-
tributions totaling $462.50 were sub-
scribed by the inmates within a few
hours. As the prisoners earn an aver-
age of only 35 cents 'a day the sac-
rifice which they made for the cause
was considerable., especially in view
of the fact that many inmates have
families "on the outside," to whose
support they contribute. When the
first Liberty Loan campaign was
broughtto the attention of the eon-
victs by the warden $7,250 was sub-
scribed in less than an hour and

EXAMS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN
MEDICINE AS HEALTH MEASURE
Examinations have a particularly
healthful effect on the women stu-
dents of the University according to
Dr. Elosie Walker of the Health ser-
vice. No cases of illness have. been
reported during the past two weeks
despite the demands of exams and the
inclement weather conditions. Icy side-
walks seem to 'be more dangerous than
thawing ones. One young lady is suf-
fering a broken arm as a result of a
too violent contact with slippery
Prison inmates also are assisting to
relieve the fuel short-age. For five
weeks 65 men have been at work in
woods in this county and have cut
approximately 2,000 cords of wood
which has been delivered to local con-4
sumers. Teams, driven by convicts,i
take the wood to private homes.
RED CROSS CLASSES COMPLETE
WORK IN SURGICAL DRESSINGS,
Since the opening of Angell house
on Jan. 2 two classes have completed
courses in surgical dressings. A class
in special dressings has just finished
work and another in standard dress-
ings was through two weeks ago. A
second class in standard dressings is
now being conducted and others. will
be. opened from time to time.
The house shipped 11,625 dressings
last month in addition to its quota
of large..paper-backed absorbent pads.
This month no definite quota has
been assigned. Standard dressings
will be made and it is hoped to make
the output large. University women
are asked to help by working the full
number of hours pledged.
