AT THE WHITNEY

RA IN "CLEOPATRA" AT THE MAJESTIC THE LATTER
)F THIS WEEK.
ITNE EYo-eoaE Thur. Mar. 28
Only Company presenting the Greatest American
Musical Com-Cdy-Charles Dillingham's

With the well known George Wilson
in the leading role and a, number of
others of ' similar ability making up
the remainder of the cast, Gus Hill's
Big Ministrels will appear at the
Whitney tonight. The scenic effects
are said to be unusually good and the
program includes a number of catchy
songs, among the most popular being
"Waltz Me Again," "I'm Going to Take
the Germ Out of Germany," "When the
Boys Come Marching Home," "Songs
of Other Days." The play is of the
old popular type of black face min-
strel show with specialities between
the acts and the usual mixture of
song, satire and syncopation, and
should prove attractive to Ann Ar-
bor audiences.

QUESTION OF GIVING ENLISTED
MEN CREDIT IS STILL PENDING
The matter as to whether or not
students enlisted or drafted will re-
ceive credit for the semester's work
after leaving school, is still pending
according to a statement issued by
Dean John R.- Effinger yesterday. The
matter will be brought up for set-
tlement at a faculty meeting some
time in the future.
Last year students leaving school
to enter the service were given an
amount of credit equitable to the
work they had completed, providing
of course, that the withdrawal from
the institution occurred some time
around the middle of the, semester.
In the Law school, however, this
policy was not followed as half credit
was given for the semester.

Paris, March 19.-(Correspondence
of the Associated Press)-Fifteen hun-
dred prosecutions in two days for vio-
lations of the new lighting regula-
tions in Paris indicate how difficult
it is to darken the "City of Light."
The general order is that all inside
.lights shall be masked so as to be in-
visible from the exterior. No one
breaks the rule wilfully, certainly,
unless it is a rare spy here and there,
yet lights are visible until a late hour
in every dierction and the only effec-
tive solution now seems to be either
the hermatic opaque sealing of win-
dows or the suppression of inside
lights.
Curtains have been used everywhere
but often they are so loose that the
light shows around the edges and
then, through the negligence of ser-
vants, or others, they are either part-
ly lowered or partly raised.
The deluge of prosecutions, it is
hoped, will finally produce a "darker
Paris," but a newspaper man who
made a tour of the city last night
found not only a respectable number
of lights shining from private apart-
ments but an amazing number of vio-
lations of the order in public build-
ings. On the Ile de la Cite more than
30 windows were illuminated in the
Palais de Justice, where all appeals
from convictions in the lighting cases
will be heard. Light was also shin-
jng brilliantly from a dozen window
of the prefecture of police from which
was issued the orders for darkening
the city.
Other public buildings, hospitals,
annexes and main buildings of Zertain
ministries were also caught in default
while moving lights carried by motor
cars, street cars, locomotives of sub-
urban railroads and all other sorts of
vehicles made the streets look sme-
thing like fading glowworms.
RIFLE CLUB RANGE
FIT FOR R.O.T.C. MEN
"Although there was six inches of
water on the Ann Arbor Rifle club's
range Sunday, the condition of the
ground is fair, and can be used by the
0R. 0. T. C. men," stated Lieut. Losey
J. Williams yesterday afternoon.
The range, which is located about
two and one-half miles from the city
near the Ann Arbor railroad tracks,
was inspected by Lieutenant Williams
and Mr. Gustav H. Sodt, captain of
the Ann Arbor home guards, Sunday.
\ "One of the steel carriers is broken,
but the other six are still serviceable,"
continued Lieutenant Williams.
"There are no marking discs, flags, or
an adequate telephone system, but
with a little money the range can be
pit into first -class condition.
"At the present time the distance
of the range is about 600 yards. By
utilizing the ground back of the place
where the shooters now stand the
range could be increased to over
1,000 yards.
"If we can get regular service am-
munition we will probably use it this
spring. After we are assured of am-
munition, permission will be obtained
to refit the used equipment, and the
cadets will then be given some train-
ng on the range."
DIETITIAN AT MARTHA COOK
TO LEAVE FRIDAY FOR FRANCE
Mrs. Lulu F. Taylor, dietitian at the
Martha Cook building, will leave Fri-
day for her new work in France. She
will be in charge of cafeteria work
In the- factory region near Bordeaux.
The Y. W. C. A. is sending American
women to France in this capacity at
the request of the women of France,
to help solve the problem of feeding

the hundreds of French girls who
have flocked to the munition factor-
ies in the cities. The American wo-
men will be sent in twos to the var-
ious manufacturing centers, one to do
social and educational work and the
other to manage cafeterias. Mrs. Tay.-
lor expects to .sail Wednesday, and
vill be accompanied by several Y. M.
,C. A. workers, although no one else
mom this section of the country will
be among the party.
