A great movement is under way
to make the recently organized local
Dollar-a-Month club for the relief of
starving children in Belgium state-
wide in scope.
- Five committees have been appoint-
ed to take charge of the following
parts of the movement: (1) To appeal
to campus organizations. (2) To ap-
peal to local clubs. (3) To make a
house-to-house canvass. (4) To in-
. fluence local business men into in-
cluding the club's circular letter of
appeal in their business correspond-
ence. (5) To influence the press
throughout the state.
The University School of Music will
send out this week 30,000 May festival
announcements which will also con-
tain the club's circular letters. Ten
thousand of these announcements are
for Ann Arbor, while the remaining
20,000 will be sent throughout the
United States, so that contributions
to the Dollar-a-Month club will not be
confined within even the limits of the
Mr. Charles A. Sink of the Univer-
sity School of Music, secretary-treas-
urer of the club, estimates that the
state of Michigan will contribute $150,-
000 a month.
The Dollar-a-Month club originated
in Ann Arbor. It sends its receipts to
the commission for relief in Belgium,
the headquarters of which are in New
York City. The commission is an in-
ternational one and has collected 250
million dollars since the beginning of
the war. Of this amount the people
of the United States have contributed
but 10 million dollars.
The chairman of the committee in
charge of the club is Prof. Francis W.
Kelsey. The secretary-treasurer is
Mr. Charles A. Sink of the University
School of Music. Among the members
of the committee, which includes some
of those most prominent in University
and local affairs, are President Harry
B. Hutchins, Dean John R. Effinger,
Dean Mortimer E. Cooley, Dean Henry
M. Bates, Dean Victor C. Vaughan, and,
Mayor Ernest M. Wurster.;
The first meeting of the entire cast,
of the Junior Girls' play was held at
4 o'clock yesterday afternoon in
Sarah Caswell Angell hall. A list of
all those taking part in the play has,
been posted in the Women's league
room in University hall, and the dates
for rehearsals will be posted in thei
same place.
Professor John R. Brumm, directori
of the Junior Girls' plays for the last
six years, announced to members of,
the cast at yesterday's meeting thatt
he felt confident this year's play wouldi
be the best Junior play ever given. f

Rope's and Bricks
Used in Argument
Citizens of Cicero, Ill., to Plea with
Embarrassing and Weighty
Cicero,'I11., Feb. 26.-With brickbats
and hemp ropes, one for each member
of the city council to back up their
protest, a hundred citizens of Cicero;
threaten to attend the meeting of the
municipal fathers tonight to voice
their disapproval of a contemplated
sale of the municipal light plant to
the Public Service company of north-
ern Illinois.
Several weeks ago the citizens' com-
mittee met at the Hawthorne audi-
torium to devise ways and means of
bringing the recalucitrant council to
their way of thinking. An invitation
to the members was accepted by but
one alderman, Joseph Laska.
Miss Margaret Haley, president of:
the Chicago Teachers' federation,
spoke at the gathering and recom-
mendedthehrope as a convincing and-
persuasive argument.
"A few years ago there was a fight
in Toledo, O., similar to this one," she
said. "The citizens met in a body and
went to the council chamber balcony.
They dangled ropes in the faces of the
council members and the traction com-
pany was not sold as planned.
"You citizens take ropes and do
the same thing. Let them know that
you are in earnest."
Frank E. Klimes, a prominent citi-
zen, urged that all voters and property
owners attend-armed with a plentiful
supply of brickbats.
The plan was unanimously approved
and leading citizens say they intend
to carry ot their coup tonight.
Also Includes Hospital Visitations and
Meeting With Factory
Volunteers are wanted for "Y" so-
cial service work. The work consists
of teaching at night school classes,
holding mid-day meetings with the
workingmen in the factories, and hos-
pital visitations. Owing to the con-
fusion necessitated by moving in the
new "Y" building the work of the so-
cial service department has been cut
short for a month. Another field of
the work consists in correspondence
with prisoners. The University "Y"
has permission from several prisons,
including Columbus, O.; Joliet, Ill.;
Jackson, Mich., and Marquette, Mich.,'
for men irterested in this field of work
to write to the prisoners. Some of
the men in the prisons receive only
one letter a year and the opportunity.
to give some of the prisoners through
this means a broader outlook on life
is very ample.
Deputation work, which has suffered
in the moving to the new building,;
will also be resumed this semester.
All men interested in this work should
call this week at Lane hall, between
the hours of 3 and 4 o'clock and see
the social director.

Manager Richard Lawrence of the
Garrick theater, Detroit, is preparing
for one of the biggest weeks in the
history of the house when the New
York Winter Garden musical ex-
travagance and sensation, "Robinson
Crusoe Jr.," featuring Al Johnson and
a far famed beauty chorus, enters upon
its week's engagement commencing
next Monday. A personnel of over
two hundred and a spectacular amount
of scenery will be brought into De-
troit Sunday and considerable work
will have to be done to put things in
order for the first performance.
The extravaganza, which is in two
big acts and 10 scenes, follows the
familiar story of Robinson Crusoe in
so far that it depicts the dream of a
world-worn New York millionaire
who yearns for the simplicity Robin-
son Crusoe scorned.
The attraction is claimed to have
an unusual appeal to women and chil-
dren and it is predicted that it will be
one of the biggest successes ever
shown in Detroit. Its successful show-
ing at the Winter Garden stamps it as
the senation of the season.
Bessie Browing is the headliner in
the vaudeville bill for the first part
of this week. She is an impersonator
of rare ability. Her impersonations
are original, individual, and keenly
June Janin in "Petticoats creates

with good harmony and original songs.

Nelson and Elsie Story open the bill

County Board of Auditors Reports
The report of the board of county
auditors for January shows that the
expense to which Washtenaw county
was put during that period was $7,-
582.42. The expenses are distributed
as follows: County, $2,186.71; county
officer fund, $2,643.16; contagious fund,
for medical care and supplies and
other details, $2,546.06. The remaind-
er of the amount comes from the cost
of fuel, light, and other matters con-
nected with the courthouse here and
the county jail.

Mr. Albert Lockwood, head of the
piano department of the University
School of Music, appeared as soloist
with the University Symphony orches-
tra in Hill auditorium yesterday after-
noon and his faultless playing aroused
much admiration. Mr. Lockwood
played Chopin's "Andante Spianato
and Polonaise, Op. 22" and Liszt's
"Todtentanz" with the orchestra and
great pleasure was derived from these
numbers. The Todtentanz, which is
decidedly gruesome and melancholy in
its color effects, is, nevertheless, very
elaborate in its construction and the
many cadenzas afford the soloist
ample opportunity to display his abil-
ity. This number, as played by Mr.
Lockwood with the orchestra, was an
unusually effective one.
The orchestra opened the program
with Wekerlin's "Marche Gaul oise,"
which was followed by Schubert's
"Symphony in B minor." These num-
bers were well played and the per-
formances were a credit to the organ-
ization. Although usually somewhat
unsteady when accompanying a solo-
ist, the work of the orchestra yester-
day in accompanying Mr. Lockwood's
numbers was splendid and made good
substantial background for the solos.
The last number of the pre-festival
series of concerts will be given in Hill
auditorium tomorrow evening at 8
o'clock, when two distinguished in-
strumentalists will appear in a joint
recital: Harold Bauer, who is known
as the master pianist and who has be-
come a favorite in Ann Arbor, and
Pablo Casals, the Spanish 'cellist, who
is credited with being the world's
greatest performer on this instrument.
The program will afford an oppor-
tunity to hear them together in two
numbers, Beethoven's Sonata in A ma-
jor, with which the program will be
opened, and Grieg's Sonata in A minor,
Op. 36, which will close the program.
The second number will be given by
Mr. Bauer and will consist of "Scenes
from Childhood" by Schumann, in
which various scenes from child life
will be presented, such as "From For-
eign Lands," "Funny Story," "Blind
Man's Buff," "Entreating Child," "Per-
fect Contentment," "Important Event,"
"Dreaming," "At the Fireside," "The
Rocking Horse," "Almost Too Seri-
ous," "Frightening," "Child Falling
"Asleep," "The Poet Speaks," while
Mr. Casals will be heard in Bach's
Suite in G major.

talk before the sophomore assembly
at 8 o'clock Thursday morning. Dr,
May has numerous slides on this sub-
ject which he will show at this time.
Attendance will be taken and it is very
urgent that all members of the class
be present. During the past week F.
T. Schutt, R. L. Storer, and L. W.
Page were appointed on the committee
for the collection of late class dues.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The uncalled for and unreasonable
attack of Mr. A of our Law school,
was indeed amusing, and was thought
by many to be just what the answering
engineers characterised it as, a 'hasty
generalization, based on illogical rea-
soning. I was glad to see that the
articles of the engineers were a per-
sonal indictment, rather than an in-
dictment of the school in which Mr. A
claims to register. It shows that the
engineers realize that the law men
do not feel as the article indicated.
The unjust accusation against the en-
gineers has already been ably ans-
wered, let us now consider the cause
for this seeming animosity.
Ever since arriving on the campus,
I have heard the slams pass between
the two schools at the opposite ends
of the diagonal walk. These have
usually been of a friendly nature,
brought on by the natural rivalry of
the various colleges on a large cam-
pus such as ours. This rivalry is a
good thing as long as it does not go
to far; it tends toward pride of col-
lege and it makes a man desirous of
so acting as to well represent the
school in which he is enrolled.
But when this rivalry breaks out
into unjust and ill-advised attacks, a
halt should be called and time given
to consider. Such petty grievances as
our brother law has mentioned should
find no place in a daily which circu-

lates throughout the country, it gives
men the wrong idea of Michigan. Such
is not the stand of a Michigan man,
but of a high school boy who has a
grouch; and let us be quick in assur-
ing all who have read the articles that
this is not the real spirit at the Maize
and Blue school.
Friendly rivalry tending toward a
greater University--yes; but uncalled
for and kiddish attack-decidedly no.
So let this real, true spirit of rivalry
continue, but let us have no more
fallacious indictments promolgated.

Sehermerhorn Criticises System of
Underpaying Clergymen
James Schermerhorn, president and
general manager of the Detroit Times,
delivered the second of the Wesleyan
Guild lectures of the semester before
a large audience in the First M. E.
church Sunday night.
This was Mr. Schermerhorn's first
appearance in Ann Arbor as a Wesley-
an Guild lecturer. In his address on
"Answer to Advertisement: The Plaint
of a Pewholder," he emphasized the
fact that the calls of the church are
not answered freely enough. The
church is the advertisement of the
kingdom of God and man may benefit
by answering it, the speaker said. The
pewholder often criticises the man in
the pulpit, yet practically every
clergyman is underpaid.
Lucia Ames Mead of Boston, secre-
tary of the women's peace party will
appear next Sunday night, March 4,
as the next lecturer in the Wesleyan
Guild series.

is a spectacular performer on the field, but the fellow
who can walk through the Iliads of Homer from Sep-
tember to June without flunking is the fellow who can
walk through life undaunted by any of its problems.
A long and steady pull wins in the end, and this comes
from the right food combined with rational exercise.
The right food is
Shredded Wheat
-the favorite food of men who do things in the class-
room and on the athletic field. It contains all the
muscle-building, brain-making material in the whole
wheat grain made digestible by steam-cooking, shred-
ding and baking. It puts gimp and ginger into the
tired brain and worn-out body. It is on the training
table of nearly every college and university in the
United States and Canada. Some of the most promi-
nent coaches in foot-ball, and other forms of athletic
games have given it preference over all other foods.

The Mouthpiece
SCIENCE and the experience of years have
combined to determine the size and shape
and the material used in the Bell telephone
This part of the telephone is designed to gather the
sound waves .of the voice, and will do this when the
-lips of the person speaking are about half an inch
from, and directly in front of it.
When speech is directed to the mouthpiece at an
angle, or from a distance of from six inches to a foot
away, the person at the other end of the line cannot
hear your voice distinctly.
The best results will be obtained, when telephoning,
by speaking close to the transmitter, and in a clear,
not-too-loud tone of voice.
