FOR WALL ST. LOSERS
OVER 200 MEN COMPETE
FOR PLACES IN OPERA
Chayles Morgan, Jr., Directs Chorus
Tryouts Last Night at
Over 200 men tried out for places
in the chorus of the 1917 Michigan
Union opera at the Union last night.
This is the largest turnout that ever
has been present at any chorus tryout
since the Mimes started presenting an
annual opera. The first cut reduced
this number to 115, but Charles Mor-
gan, Jr., who personally conducted the
tryouts, acting as judge, considered
this number much too large, so a sec-
ond elimination was held, cutting the
total down to approximately 85.
Yesterday afternoon a meeting of the
cast was held at which time the book
was read and discussed. Mr. Morgan
had several minor corrections to make,
but expressed himself as being very
well pleased with it as it stood.
On Wednesday afternoon, the first
real cast rehearsal will be held at the
Union and on Wednesday night the
chorus will meet for its first practice.
Practically all those who survived the
cut last night will be carried on the
chorus till after the start of the new
semester when the final cut will be
The list or chorus men will be posted
in the Union this afternoon and will
also appear in tomorrow's Daily.

RECRUITING FOR NATAL
Twenty-Five Percent of Candidates
Rejected in Physical Ex-
With the divisions already over-
crowded, recruiting for the University
naval reserves closed last night, two
full days before the mustering cere-
mony. This, in view of the fact that
25 percent of those examined were
rejected. Under the efficient system
organized by J. P. Poppen, '17M, as-
sistant medical officer of the battalion,
forty-three men were looked over in
four days of examinations, giving an'
average of better than ten a day.
Final plans for the ceremonies to-
marrow night have practically been
completed. Permission has been .se-
cured for the attendance of the Var-
sity band, which is to lead the divis-
ions on the floor and play the national
anthem. It will also sound the bugle
calls necessary for the proper per-
formance of the mustering. On ac-
count of the inexperience of the stand-
ard-bearers in matters of flag-salutes,
the battalion flags will not be raised
at the mustering, as was heretofore
stated, but will be hung in a promin-
ent place in the gymnasium.
Definite word has not yet been re-
ceived from Governor Sleeper as to
the possibility of his attending to-
morrow's ceremonies but it is thought
that he will be unable to do so. Ad-
jutant-general Bersey, Captain Lewis,
and Lieut. Richardson and their
staffs will, however, be present, ar-
riving from Detroit on the Michigan
Central late Wednesday afternoon. It
has been decided to hold a reception
for the officers in the trophy room of
the gymnasium immediately after the
conclusion of the mustering.
President Harry B. Hutchins has ap-
pointed Dean Mortimer E. Cooley, of
the College of Engineering, to speak
for the University at tomorrow night's
formalities. Dean Cooley has had
wide experience in naval affairs him-
self, being a graduate of the Naval
academy and a former officer in the
United States navy. He was at one
time assistant engineer of the Mich-
igan naval brigade, the same organi-
zation with which the local divisions
will be affiliated.
NO PLACE FOR HYPHENS AT
MEETING OF S. A. R. TONIGHT
An "Americanization meeting," un-
der the auspices of the Washtenaw
chapter of the Sons of the American
revolution, will be given at 8 o'clock
tonight in the high school auditorium..

siding officer of the meeting and the
main address will be given by Merton
A. Sturges of Chicago, chief natural-
ization examiner, Honorable J. E. Beal,
regent of the University, will give the
address of welcome. The musical pro-
gram is under the direction of Mr. T.

Washington, Jan. 8.-Construing the
Webb-Kenyon act, the supreme court
today affirmed a Maryland court's de-
cision refusing to penalize the West-
ern Maryland railroad and the Adams
Express company for refusing to ship
liquor into "dry" West Virginia.
Attorney for the distillers argued
that soliciting by mail and delivery
by an express company did not con-
stitute a sale within the dry state,
which is forbidden by the Webb-Ken-
yon act. The lower court reversed
itself after reopening the case and de-
cided that it did.
The Kenyon law by the court's de-
cision was held constitutional. The
decree is of nation-wide importance,
affecting every prohibition state. Chief
Justice White, who read the opinion,
upheld the Kenyon law in its broadest
