ler, and it made a tremendous hit in
its first performance in Ann Arbor two
years ago. This tale of a modern Cin-
derella had over six millian readers
When it appeared in book form and it
makes a still wider appeal to the chil-
dren and grown-ups in its dramatic
presentation. The show enjoyed a
run of a season in Chicago, another
an New York, and a year in London
during its earlier history.
"Mary's Ankle," the Metropolitan
success, will be shown at the Whit-
ney Tuesday night, after a successful
run in the larger cities of the east.
The play has an unique plot, and Miss
Winifred St. Claire appears in the

Reports of the curtailment of mail
service were denied by post office offi-
cials of Ann Arbor yesterday. As-
sistant Postmaster C. W. Sanzig of
the local office said that the only dis-
advantage the department has to en-
counter is the irregularity of rail-
road service in connection with the
mails. He denied, however, that any
any of the delays in delivery can be
attributed to a lack of efficiency in
the ofEice.
