Geneva, Switzerland, March 15. -I
Nicholas Romanoff who, as emperorl
of Russia, once exercised sway over
the fate of millions of Russians, leads
a melancholy life at Tobols, the Sib-
erian "city of death" to which he and
his family are exiled, according to
one of the Red guard sentinels sta-
tioned at his home there.
"My life has always been that of
a prisoner," the former emperor is
quoted as saying. "It is not my form-
er power that I regret. I hav-a only
one wish and that is to return to the
Crimea and devote myself to horticul-
ture."
Writing to a freind in . this city,
the Russian Red guard said:
"The attitude of the emperor when
he is alone is full of calm and simple
dignity, but as soon as he thinks
that he is no longer observed he gives
way and walks with bent head. His
hair has become white as, snow and
his face is filled with a painful mel,
angholy. He is often seen at the
window following his children with
his eyes when they go out for a walk.
Empress Miserable.
"If the emperor shows resignation,
it does not find an echo in his wife,
Alexandria Alix. Everything in her
present situation seems calculated to
wound her and make her miserable.,
She was only allowed to take with her
15 boxes of clothing. At first sight
this may seem quite a considerable
amount, but it rhust not be forgotten,
that the whole wardrobe of five wom-
en and an emperer is contained there-
in. Therefore it is comprehensible
that it would not suffice for an exile of
long duration. To this must be added
the impossibility of procuring any kind
of clothing in Tobolsy. The princesses
possess in all, only four costunes, and
are obliged to be contented with those;
They were forced to leave all their
jewelry in Petrograd.
Occupied with Children
"The former empress occupies her-
self greatly with her children, but i n
stead of encouraging them to be re-
signed, she strives the whole time to
keep up in their memory the remem-
brance of the past. It is the impossi-
bility of corresponding, which hurts
her the most. The few letters she re-
ceives are carefully censored before-
hand by the officers of the "body-
guard." Her confidential friend is
Madame Narichkina, a former lady-
in-waiting now living in Tobolsk, from
whom the former empress has no see-
rets.

Four cadets from each company will
be given preliminary training in rifle
practice Monday or Tuesday.
An inspection of the target range
will be made by Lieut. Losey J. Wil-
liams this morning for the purpose of
determining the condition of the
ground at the present time. If the
range meets all the requirements the
cadets may be able to practice on it
this spring.
An examination of 12 men to be
picked from the different companies
of the R. 0. T. C. will be held to-
ward the end of the -week for promo-
tion in the.Headquarters company.
Membersrof the first batallion of
the First regiment will be given the
following contests by Dr. George A.

Editir, The Michigan Daily:
I would like to inform the writer
of the article appearing in Friday's
Daily, titled "Scores Opera Critics,"
that not all criticisms of a destructive
sort are "prompted by jealousy and
petty motives." We should have crit-
icisms, constructive and destructive,
if the campus is to come to an un-
biased opinion on the subject, women
in the opera.
We all must have some sort of an
opinion upon this subject. In my es-
timation, this year's opera is not up
to the standard of those of previous
years. This is not the fault of the
plot or of the music, but is due to
the fact that the presence of girls in
the cast puts a damper on the whole
performance. The opera lacks the life
and "pep" of former Union shows.
If we are to have the women of the
University take part in the Michigan
Union opera, they should at least act
their character parts. If the women
would enter into the opera, let them
go into it with the same life and "pep"
as the men did in former years. If
they did, I am sure none 'f -us would
find fault, but would give them the
,credit due them. But it is evident
that the women of the University are
not capable of acting in the opera, as
it should be done. Are there not
others on the campus, who believe
that the opera is not the place for the
women of the University of Michigan?

Princesses ove Freely
"The princesses can move freely
about the town, without any special
superintendence, but naturally, not
without being followed step by step
by the secret police,-who, however,
perform their duty, as discreetly as
possible.
"On the contrary, the heir-apparent
is closely guarded, as the revolution-
aries fear an abduction. He is es-
corted everywhere by the sailor Dere-
menko, a man of herculean stature,
who once saved the prince's life at a
hunt. He has not the right to go into
town without being accompanied by .a
certain nuihber of officers. The prince
is in good health, but a slight limp
betrays the stiffness of the right foot,
which is incurable.
