AT THE WHITNEY
"Seven Chances," with Frank Crav-
en and Carroll McComas in the cast,
will be at the Whitney theater today.
This Belasco production has just com-
pleted a half year run at the George
M. Cohan theater, New York.
The story of the comedy has to do
with the trials and tribulations of a
confirmed bachelor who is obliged to
choose a wife at once in order to in-
herit the fortune of his grandfather.
He proposes to seven girls in turn
without success. How he finally suc-
ceeds is disclosed in the course of the
PROFESSORS START BACK
TO THE FRM MOVEMENT
PLAN TO INCREASE CROP ACRE-
AGE OF WASHTENAW
Professors of the University of
Michigan have started a movement to
raise the crop acreage of Washtenaw
county to its fullest capacity, by en-
listing as laborers to help farmers in
tilling the soil. At a meeting of farm-
ers and the agriculture committee of
the Ann Arbor Civic association yes-
terday morning the preliminary steps
of this patriotic movement were i/ken
and the idea will be worked out im-
"The idea is this," explained Henry
W. Douglas of the Civic association,
through whose initiative the plan was
started. "The farmers in order to
increase production must have labor.
It is our patriotic duty to see that they
get labor. We cannot furnish them
with skilled laborers, but we can and
will, if they agree, furnish them with
plenty of willing workers who will
work for a small rate and with public
spiritedness to help our government in
time of war.
Many Have Had Experience
"Many of the men with whom I have
talked are men who were brought up
on farms, and their experience will be
of great help. We can't settle prices
or othr conditions that must be met
by the government. This Civic associa-
tion is a local organization only. But
we can furnish labor and that is vital.
We will do it."
It was the expression of the major-
ity of the farmers present that the
production could be increased at least
30 per cent if adequate labor was fur-
nished. It is understood that the la-
borers will be paid a nominal sum,
but the scale of wages has not been
decided as yet.
Another idea suggested dealt with
the transportation of the volunteer la-
borers to and from work. It was sug-
gested that those men who could not
iund time to do the actual labor might
aid the cause by conveying the en-
listed to their farming points.
Send Out Slips Immediately
Slips will be sent out at once, solicit-
ing the names of those who will enlist
in the movement. 'All men in this vi-
cinity are eligible. Those signing will
be asked to give their name, age, tele-
phone number, tell how many hours
and on what days they can work, their
present occupation, previous farming
experience, and means of transporta-
tion. Any suggestions for facilitatingI
or making the plan more acceptable
are entertained by the association.
The members of the agriculture
committee are: A. F. Smith, chairman;
E. B. Manwaring, Dr. L. P. Hall, H.
G. Burnham, E. E. Calkins, J. F.
Wurster, and W. E. Underdown.

AT THE MAJESTIC
In the filminization of Jules Verne's
tale of adventure, "Twenty Thousand
Leagues Under the Sea," now showing
at the Majestic, the type of diving suits
worn by the actors are those which
have been used by the British govern-
ment since the war for locating mines.
They differ from the old fashioned type
in that they contain tanks of oxygen
and compressed air to inflate the suit,
instead of the old contrivances of tubes
and ropes to get air to the diver and
to hoist him up from the bottom of
Thus in the under sea scenes of this
play the actors walk about the ocean
floor with tanks on their backs.

The city park department, which
last year did considerable work in the
interests of safety on the Huron river
in connection with the Edison and
Huron Farms companies, will continue
many of the measures adopted this
spring. About May 1 a river patrol-
man will take up his beat, and he will
have authority not only to enforce
order on the Huron but also to compel
any who may seem inexperienced in
the handling of a canoe to withdraw
from the river.
Stations will be established again
where aid may be obtained, and life
preservers will be placed at various
points along the river.
In view of the fact that a municipal
bath house has been erected just above
the boat house, the city will prohibit
all bathing at other places along the
river in Ann Arbor. This bath housq
will be equipped with apartments for
both men and women, and will be
modern in every respect.
