FESTIVAL TO OFFER
MARTINELLI AS DON JOSE

Giovanni Martinelli, the leading ten-
or with the Metropolitan opera house,
who appears in the Saturday eve-
ning concert of the May festival, will
take the part of Don Jose in Bizet's
"Carmen."
Ten years ago Martinelli was a clar-
inet player in a local band at Padua.
His bandmaster heard his unusual
voice and persuaded him to study.
Since his operatic debut at the Dal
Verme theater in Milan, his successes
have been continuous, and he has
been hailed as "the coming great Ital-
- " ian tenor."
iiton The New York Tribune says ofI
thletic Martinelli: "There is breadth and
judgment in his phrasing; intelligent
en be- accent and color in his nuancing, and
lmast- a general warmth in his style. He has.
after- an uncommonly beautiful voice and he
re the has ambition."

ception, the Michigan Union has de-
veloped until it now is a living organ-
ism, a vital part of the University.
In December, 1903, a call was isseud
for a meeting of representatives of all
University organizations, to consider
ways and means of filling a great
want-the development of the social
side of education at Michigan, the cre-
ation of a place where the students
might obtain wholesome and beneficial
recreation and amusement, the cul-
tivation of a real Michigan spirit, and
establishing of a place where alumni
might meet on their visits to Ann Ar-
bor.
Incorporated in 1904.
In 1904, the Univrsity of Michigan
Union was- incorporated, with Presi-
dent Angell, other members of the fac-
ulties, alumni, and students as incor-
porators. In December, 1906, th.ree
years after the organization was form-
ed, the Union purchased the old Cool-
ey homestead, which formerly occu-
pied the site of the clubhouse. The
Cooley home was opened for use in
November, 1917, and continued to
serve as a culb until it was torn
down to make way for the new struc-
ture. The Union then moved into the
quarters occupied by it at the present
time.
$1,000,000 Campaign
When the campaign for raising $1,-
000,000 for the new building opened
in October, 1915, the movement at-
tracted editorial comment from such
publications as Collier's Weekly, the
Metropolitan Magazine, the Outlook,
the Chicago Tribune, and the Chicago
Herald. The stupendous task of col-
lecting, by popular subscription, so
large a sum aroused the interest of the
whole country.
Actual Work Begun
The money raised during the cam
paign, together with the fees accru-
ing from life membership dnes, guar-
anteed the existence of the proposed
Union clubhouse, and the actual work
on the building commenc'ed in June,
1916, when Presidnt Harry B. Hutch-
ins turned the first shoveful of dirt for
the foundation.
Activities Badened
As the Union's quarters have been
enlarged, so have its various activities
taken on a broader scope. It is now
active in war work, and to it is part-
ially due the success of many patriotic
movements on the campus: The Lib-
erty Loan, and the War Savings and
Thrift stamnp campaigns have been and
are being conducted on the campus
largely through the efforts of the Un-
ion. It also maintaiW the Michigan
branch of the intercollegiate intellig-
ence bureau. Officials of the Union
have taken prominent parts in num-
erous other activities of both local
and national importance.
TRADE CONTINUES TO EXPAN.D;
RETAIL BUSINESS IMPROVING
New York, March 25.-Bradstreet's
of last welk has this to say of trade
conditions throughout the country:
"Trade continues to expand, with re-
tail business joining the procession as
favoring weather and Easter spur de-
mand. Industry is speeding up, mild
weather is awakening farm activities
and the agricultural season is open-
ing with fairly good conditions for
early crops.
"The two great salient features of
the week just past are the large num-
ber of reports of insufficient stocks in
hands of jobbers, final manufacturers,
and distributors, and the advices re-
ceived that, the country's rail-
roads ' and railroad terminals are
still congested. The opening
of the water routes is longed for
to lift some of the burdens of super-'
abundant traffic.

"Employment of women workers at
big wages is stimulating the demand;
for clothing and millinery. It is signi-
ficant, however, that jewelers, dealers
in automobiles, brewers and manu-
facturers of toilet . preparations are,
complaining of business. Thus it is
evident that the buying is being con-
fined to essentials."

The requisition for gallery range sup-
plies was returned from the Rock Is-
land Arsenalsyesterday morning. The
requisitipn has been forwarded to the
department. headquarters.
"Our plans will undoubtedly be ap-
proved,", stated Lieutenant Williams
last night. "Plans for equipping the
gallery range are now in the hands of
the buildings and grounds depart-
ment." The equipment will probably
be installegd before the arrival of the
supplies.
A second group of men will leave
on the 8 o'clock interurban for De-
troit Thursday morning to take the
physical examinations for the United
States naval reserves. The men will
be accompanied by Charles F. Lam-
bert, '19. No results of the examina-
tions taken by 22 students last Friday
morning have as yet been received
from the authorities in Detroit. Un-
official reports show that a large per-
centage of the men passed the tests
successfully.
Kenneth K. Koch, ex-'20, died from
diphtheria on shipboard, March 14,
according to information received
here. Koch obtained "A" in every
subject last year. He left the Univer-
sity at spring vacation to join the
Naval Auxiliary.

CITY NEWS
Fire of supposed incendiary origin
was -discovered by the firemen of the
local department Saturday night, at
115 East Ann street, and was extin-
guished without much trouble. The
fire was discovered in five different
rooms on the second floor, and two on
the third floor. Upon entering the
house with their fire fighting appar-
atus, the firemen found various bot-
tles and other utensils lying about the
room, in which kerosene had been
brought to the place.
According to the fire department,
the only conclusion is that the fires
were incendiary. There was scarcely
a room in the building which was oc-
cupied, and some had apparently been
vacated in a hurry.
The building is owned by Henry
Vogel and has been rented to a man
for a restaurant on the: first floor, and
lodging on the second and third floors.
These places are said to have been
relet to other parties.
James 0. Fagan, famous lecturer

discuss the industrial situation and
its relation to the war. Mr. Fagan is
famous as the originator of the "Safe-
ty First" movement.
Mrs. Fred T. McOmber has been ap-
pointed chairman of the Washtenaw
County War Preparedness committee.
She' will have charge particularly of
the work by Ann Arbor women. It

ladies that thrift stamp order cards
were distributed following the address

ing in the Hill auditorium, followed by
