SARAH BERNHARDT TO
APPEARHERE FEB 13
FAMOUS ACTRESS WILL PLAY IN
ANN ARBOR FOR FIRST
Ann Arbor will have the opportunity
of seeing Madame Sarah Bernhardt in
the flesh for the first time on Friday,
Feb. 13, when the famous actress will
appear in Hill auditorium under the
joint auspices of the Women's club of
Ann Arbor and the Women's league.
The nature of the performance in
which Madame Bernhardt is to appear
has not yet been decided upon. During
last fall she toured the country in
repertoire, part of. the box office re-
ceipts going to one of the French war
relief funds. At present she is in New
York starring in a new motion picture
In bringing the actress here, the
Women's league is following a policy
which was started several years ago
when Ellen Terry, the famous Eng-
lish actress, appeared in a dramatic
reading in University hall, under the
auspices of the league.
Madame Bernhardt's acceptance of
an Ann Arbor engagement was re-
ceived from her manager yesterday by
Hazel Giddings, '17, chairman of the
league dramatic committee, who has
'been in communication with the ac-
tress ever since her appearance in De-
troit last fall. Nothing further thin
the date was decided.
Average Annual Return to Uniersity
of Wisconsin Local A-
The popular idea among college
students that "the professors get rich
by writing books and making us buy
them" has been exploded by a journal-
ism student who has made an invest-
igation at the University of Wiscon-
The average royalty which a local
professor-author receives from the
sale of his book to his classes is about
$23.93 a year, he finds. Ten times this
amount of royalty goes to authrs out-
side the university, since $90,000 worth
of text-books of all kinds are sold in
Madison each year.
Twenty-eight professors now teach-
ing at that university have written 37
books that are being used in their
classes. The total local sale of these
books amounts to about $8,865 a year.
Authors' royalty of ten per cent nets
about $886 on the 37 books.
Although the average yearly royalty
is thus $23.93, more than one-third
of the professor-authors get less than
$6 a year from the sale of their books
to their students. One-sixth net $5.50
a year each; two net $4.50 each, and
one makes $1.80. There is, of course.
one exceptional professor who makes
almost $200. Ten professor-authors
receive no royalty because their books
are published by the university and
sold at cost.
How much the professor-author's
income is augmented by sales in other
universities, the journalism student
was unable to discover.
MICIIIGAN ENSIAN PUTS TAX ON
SENIOR PICTURES AFTER FEB.1
Fining will be resorted to by the
editors of the Michiganensian in or-
der to force seniors to turn in their
pictures for the year book. A tax of
25 cents will be levied on every near-
graduate who has not sent in his
photograph by Feb. 1. Even then the
seniors will have only until Feb. 15
to get the pictures in. The laxness of1
students in this regard is the only fac-
tor which is now holding up the book.
BRAZIL SENDS CRUISERS
TO SEARCHFOR RAIDER
STORIES OF SECRET BASES FOL-
LOW DEEDS OF GER-
By H. B. Robertson
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
Rio de Janiero, Jan. 25.-Not since
the days when Morgan and other buc-
caneers of old roamed the seas and
sent vessels scuddling before wild
rumors of their presence, has there
been such a crop of stories of secret
bases, concealed harbors, mysterious
supply ships, and the strategy of wily
seamen as that which buzzed up and
down the South American coast to-
Many of the harbor strongholds of
the pirates of the days when the Span-
ish main was good picking are located
on the north coast of South America
and the rumors of today were that
these same natural vantage poists are
being utilized by the German raider.
The minister of marine put enough
confidence in one of these rumors to
dispatch the Brazilian cruisers Rio
Grande del Sul and the Tymbira to
search the coast of the state of Rio
Grand del Norte. The special rumor
on which he based his action was that
the municipality of Touros in that
state located between Fortaleza and
Matal was the hiding place of the
raider. Pernambuco dispatches today
persisted in this rumor.
The meagre description of the raider
given by survivors at Pernambuco
said she had four funnels. The same
rumor had it that the four-funneled
vessel was attended by two passenger
and two cargo boats, one of which was
flying the American flag.
Practically every inch of the South
American coast line will have been
searched within the next few days.
Warships from Brazil, Argentina and
Uruguay have taken up the quest,
seeking to prevent violation of the
neutrality of the waters. A vast fleet
of allied warships is also hunting for
the Teuton vessel.

Owing to the many complaints that
have been circulated against the serv-
ice of the Michigan Central railroad
in this city lately, the officials of the
road have told the members of the
transportation committee of the Ann

improve the condition of the depot and
the service at the local station. An as-
sistant will be installed at the depot
office to answer telephone calls and
an extra employee will be put on the

ground for the theory that might

required to draw a card and the num-

charge of the university marshal, and
all students who do not draw num-

everyone else is enrolled.

Two and probably three weeks will
be the duration of the embargo on all
shipments through Toledo excepting
coal, live stock and food products,
which went into effect last Saturday at
midnight. This prediction was made

It is estimated that nearly 7,000 cars
of coal and raW material are held up
at Toledo, and householders are only
the most numerous among those who
are crying for relief. The closing of
many Detroit factories through lack
of material may be effected by the em-
bargo, it is said. In that case thou-
sands of employees will be thrown out

complicated the situation seriously,
