of the College of Engineering, will act
as the official representative of the
University and will deliver the prin-
cipal address of the evening.
Margaret Cooley, '18, is to stand
sponsor for the battalion and will
raise the national standard over it.
"To the Colors," will be blown by the
buglers of the Varsity band, and at

ican flag, which Will float over the
heads of the men as the band plays
"The Star Spangled Banner."
The ceremonies are to begin at 7:30

be escorted on to the floor by the Var-
sity band, playing "The National Em-
Immediately following the playing
of the piece, the union jack will be
raised over the battalion.k Formal
mustering ceremonies will then be in-
stituted, followed by "Michigan, My
Michigan" by the band. Parade rest
will then be ordered and Dean Cool-
ey will deliver his speech. This will
conclude the formalities, the divisions
marching off the 'floor behind the Var-
sity band. An informal reception is
to be held for the visiting officers
and the newly mustered divisions in
the trophy room and adjoining halls
immediately after dismissal of the
men. A detachment of 60 blue-jackets

trance to Waterman gymnasium at

with sleeves rolled to the elbow, stiff
white collars, black bow ties, white
tennis shoes. A number of men will be
needed this afternoon to prepare the
decorations in the gymnasium, and
any who can find the time are request-
ed to report there at 2 o'clock.
To Hold no Drill for Training Corps
Members of the military training
corps will not hold their regular drill
tonight, owing to the fact that the
gymnasium floor will be occupied by
the naval reserves. All members of
the former organization are requested
to attend the talks to be given later in
the week by President Hary B.

of the best amateur dramatic talent on
the campus will be found in "The
Magic Carpet" on Jan. 12, in Hill audi-
torium, many'actors of professional ex-
perience will also be brought before
The leading role, that of Dadda
IRhamadad, will be played by Warren
Townsend, '18, an assistant in the ora-
tory department, who has had four
years on the legimate stage. He ap-
peared as "Ring Master" in "Polly of
the Circus" in Ann Arbor some years
ago, and incidentally won the hearty
support and sympathy of the audience,
as well as distinction among his fel-
low actors. Critics from coast to
coast praised his conscientious work
and complimented highly on his abil-
ity to act delicate parts. His clever
acting brings to one's memory the
humorous devices employed by Otis
Skinner in "Omar." /
Jenny Jacobs, '18D, has the leading
woman's part, being "Penelope Pem-
broke" in the production. She has dis-
tinguished herself with the Cape Town
dramatic societies. Miss Jacobs is one
of the two South African women stu-
dents in the dental department. Elsa
Apfel, '17, of "Worsted Man" fame,
will also be prominent in the foreign
students' presentation. The Hawaiian
scene furnishes some excellent oppor-
tuniti s for Harry Carlson, '17, while
Clarehce Hunter, '17, in the Chinese
sketch, will prove that his "Marc'
Antony" and "Menaechmus" of last
semester does not confine his dramatic
The title role in the Hindu act,
Narida, the Mystic, is taken by Nil-
kanth Chavare of Kolput, India, for
many years one of the youniger set of
actors in his own country, and who
has played on the American stage for
a limited number of years. His part
necessitates an actor of unusual abil-
ity in order to portray the Hindu tem-
perament, which is more concerned
with the propaganda of ideals and
poetic atmosphere than with the mere
narration of an incident.
Baron Edadu in the Japanesp play
is acted by Sotokichi Katzuizumi, '17,
of Tsubata Kaga, Japan. In his own
country he has played two years on
the professional stage, but had given
it up in order to gain a better educa-
tion in America. Katzuizumi did some
professional work in Denver, Colo.
Frank Grover, '18, as Rufus Pem-
broke, in the American sketch of "The
Magic Carpet," has a number of years
of dramatic training to his credit.
Grover has appeared in the last two
Michigan Union operas, "All That Glit-
ters" and "Tres Rouge."
More Scholarships for Women Student
A number of scholarships 'are open
to women, and Dean Myra B. Jordan
has. announced that all women inter-
ested are requested to see her at her
office in Barbour gymnasium at once.
The most considerable of these funds
is the Lucinda Hinsdale Stone Mem-
orial scholarship, the income of which
usually assists three women a year.
Another of importance is the Alice
Freeman Palmer scholarship provided
by the alumnae of the University. A
recent addition to the number of
scholarships open exclusively to wo-
men is the Jane Turner scholarship.

The indictment charges that Thaw
persuaded Fred Gump, Jr., to leave
Long Beach, Cal., for New York, and
after his arrival here, tied the young
man up and thrashed him with a whip
at the McAlpin hotel on Dec. 25.
Included in the evidence which the

WILSON STATES PERSONALLY RE
FAVORS WOMEN AS
STAND IN ELECTION
Address on Occasion of Resolutions
Commemorating Inez Milhol-
By Robert J. Bender
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, Jan. 9.-Expressing re-
gret that' "so many ardent souls in
the suffrage movement failed in the
last election to appreciate that the
Democratic party was more inclined
than the opposition to help their
cause," President Wilson today in-
formed several hundred suffragists he
is not in a position to do more than
he has done in their behalf.
President Wilson closed his remarks
by saying "woman suffrage is a cause
in which I personally believe."
The declaration was made to mem-
bers of the Congressional union when
they presented resolutions to the presi-
dent in the east room in memory of the
death of Inez Milholland Boissevain.
Refers to Convictions.
"I do not need to tell you," the presi-
dent said, "where my own convictions
and personal purposes lie, and I need
not tellayou by circumscription. I am
bound as a leader of a party. As ar
leader of a party my commands come
from the party, and not from private
He continued: "My personal action
as a citizen, of course, comes from no
source other than my own convictions,
and' my convictions has been frequent-
ly, and I hope candidly defined. It is
impossible for me, until the orders of
my party are changed, to do any other
than I am doing as a party leader; I
think nothing more is necessary to be
Speaks of Democratic Party.
"I do want to say this. I do not see
how anybody can fail to observe from
the utterances of the last campaign
that the Democratic party is more In-
clined than the opposition party to ad-
vancement in this grand cause, and it
has been a matter of surprise to me,
and a matter of very great regret, that
so many of those who are heart and
soul for this cause seem to so greatly
misunderstand and misinterpret the
attitude of parties, because in this
country, as in every other self-gov-
erning country, it is only through the
instrumentality of the parties that
things can be accomplished."
