ANNUAL DUS MEET BUT
HALF OF UNION EXPENSE
DEFICIT COVERED BY PROCEEDS
OF OPERA, DANCES AND
RENTALS
Membership dues cover less than
one-half of the expenses incident to
the existence of the Michigan Union.
This is shown by a yearly financial
statement just issued by the Union of-
ficials. The remaining deficit is made
up from the proceeds of the opera,
opera music, dances, and rental fees.
According to the table of figures,
the restaurant was operated at a loss
of $664.51, and the smoker necessitated
a net outlay of $83.40. Maintenance,
including fuel, water, light, taxes, in-
surance, house salaries, and repairs,
cost $8,648.34.
These expenses are offset by the
profits made from the candy and to-
bacco stand,.the amount being $260,15;
the Union dances, $1,029.22; rentals
for use of the dance hall, $565.25; an-
nual opera, $2,657.06; opera music,
$478, and other smaller items.
From these figures it can be seen
that the existence of the Union de-
pends upon profits derived from
sources other than membership dues.
Msaybe We'll
Get Used To It
Pop-up goes the soda price. Those
who take a daily visit to the soda
water fountain will find their beverage
has risen in price. Every drink of
soda water which one takes from now
on will aid Uncle Sam in the war
against Prussianism.
At the twenty-ninth annual conven-
tion of the American Bottlers' Protec-
tive association in Detroit Tuesday,
soda water manufacturers stated that
the recent war tax on carbonic gas,
used in their business, will eventually
be paid by the consumer.
The tax is five cents per pound. This,
together with the half cent a pound
which the carbonic gas manufactur-
ers have added to the price of their
product to pay for the cost of col-
lecting the tax, will boost the price
for individual bottles and for cases.
PROFESSORS GIVE PROCEEDS
FROM ESSAYS TO ORPHANS
Professors H. P. Thieme and W. A.
McLaughlin of the French department
are materially helping thetFrench war
orphans by turning over to the bene-
fit, committee all proceeds from the
sale of their translation of two essays
of Victor Geraud.
These essays, "The French Miracle"
and "French Civilization," treat of
France's ideals and place in the war.
The translations are a tribute from
American professors of French to
French professors who have died for
their country.

Cheer Up rable,
Here's a Letter
"Nixie" Is What the Postmaster Calls
You, But Call and Get Your
Mal
Ever see a Nixie?
They've got 'em at the local post-
office.
This is the way "they" happen:
Father writes to daughter Mabel,
addressing the envelope as follows:
"Miss Mabel Muffendorfer, Ann Arbor,
Michigan, University of Michigan."
And upon its arrival at the local of-
fice, father's missive becomes a Nixie.
That is, it travels the various city
routes in search of Mabel, returning
with carriers' laconic, "Nix"-nothing
doing.
All this time Mabel wonders why
the folks don't write. Father in turn
fears Mabel has eloped. All because
of insufficiently addressed mail.
"We wouldn't mind the Nixies so
much," said H. J. Abbott, postmaster,
"if the students would only give us
their addresses as soon as they are
settled. We waste hours of time daily
trying to locate Mabels because both
she and father are careless.
"The postal authorities at Washing-
ton realize that the Ann Arbor situa-
tion is a tough nut. for the local of-
fice, but they have said that our speed
and system are O K. The students
will get prompt service at any rate,
but allowing a letter to become a
Nixie delays the cheque from home."
So get mad, real mad, Mabel, and
make a howl at the postoffice. It's the
only way apparently the postoffice will
get your address.

positions on the Varsity Glee club is
not as great as last year the quality
of the voices is excellent. There is
a fine chance for several more pros-
pective Glee club members. The
voices particularly in demand are first
'tenors.
Theodore Harrison who has charge
of the singers is very optimistic in
regard to the ability of the club. He
says in part, ."We have a chance to
have one of the best glee clubs in
years if more first tenors would turn
out. There is need of other voices,
too."
The trip which the Glee club will
make may be East 'or it may tour
the following states: West Virginia,
Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, Iowa,
Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisi-
ana, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Alabama,
Indiana, Illinois, and possibly, Ohio.
Strength of the Glee club will vary
between fifty and a hundred.
Those intending to come out and
try for the Varsity Glee club will
find notices of the tryouts in The Mich-
igan Daily.
