X18 OPera-P ost'er
Appears In City
After a delay occasioned by the non-
arrival of the color plates, the 1918
Union opera poster, designed by Reed'
E. Bachman, '20, has made its ap-
pearance in the streets of Ann Arbor.
The picture represents a young wa-
man, distinctively Parisienne in mien
and manner with an officer-seemingly
a direct descendant of the genus
"lounge lizard." The latter's left eye
alone is visible, the other possibly
having been destroyed by shell fire,
although he apparently has never
heard the boom of the busy Berthas.
In striking contrast to the back-
ground of lavender are the olive green
of the military uniform and the yellow,
vermilion, green, and blue of the lady'Is
garb, which in itself covers much, of
the picture. Her apron and cap of
white relieve the startling effects
brought about by the elaborate color
The lettering "Let's Go!l" is unique
and wholly in keeping with the tone.

BOXING GLOVES AND BAYONETS
HELP IN MAKING FIGHTERS
Philadelphia, March 11. - Boxing
gloves and bayonets are twin broth-
ers in developing fighting skill, ac-
cording to Sergeant Samuel Katcher
of the United States marine corps.
Katcher is the lightweight. champion
of the marines, and is known to his
comrades as "Fighting Sammy."
"The blocks, counters, and blows of
boxing as closely imitated in bay-
onet fighting," says Katcher. "Train- I
ed boxers who are learning to be-
come infantry fighters have remarked
the similarity of the butt stroke to
the body as a counter for an oppon-
ent's higlh thrust with the bayonet.
At the completion of this blow the
positions of the bayonet men are
identical with those of boxers.
"Of course the effect of the rifle punch
if pushed home means a knock-out,
if not sure death, to the man who re-
celeves it," he added, "where a similar
blow in boxing would be only an in-
cident of the bout."
Katcher has had ample opportunity
to practice his skill with both rifle
and fists. He participated in several
engagements in Nicaragua a few years
ago. In the same country he won the
title of lightweight champion of the
United States marine by knocking out
his rival in a few seconds.
