Before an audience that completely

todav concluded hln lecture on "Tho

Tuesday at convocation Professor
Lees told a story which contains what
he bolloves to bo an authentic reason
why tho folk of Ober-Amraorgau peri
odically reproduce tho "PasBlon Play."
Today ho followed up In detail, as far
as his limited timo would permit, in
tho presentation of the "PnsBion Piny"
in 1906 and also as it will appear this
Biimmor in Ober-Ammorgnu. Ho ac

After a brief summary of tho con
tents of tho first division of his lec
ture, Professor Lees said in part:
"During the first two conturlos, after
tho making of that wonderful vow, tho
'Passion Play' was given in a large
meadow bordering on Ober-Ammergau.
Later, however, because of l'nclemont
weather, an Immense theater "wns
built, costing $50,000 and holding ap
proximately 4,000 people. During tho
summer of every tenth yonr, twenty
or thirty performances of this drama
aro given ovory performance coming
on Sunday or Wednesday. The play
begins at 8 o'clock in tho morning and
continues until G o'clock In tho even
ing, tho hours from 12 a m. to 2 p. m.
IncluBlvo being devoted to lunch.

"At tho signal of n cannon, tho
great play begins. At tho rlso oPtho
curtain, a chorus of forty men and
women enter from each Bldo of tho
stage. Tho members of tho chorus aro
all dressed In robes, mantles, sandals
and othor apparel of oriental pattern.
Theso robes nro worn throughout tho
piny, with tho single exception of the
crucifixion scono, in which black robes
aro worn In their place, Tho duty of
tho chorus is tho samo aa that of the

Owing to circumstances which havo..
arlson during tho past fow wooks,
Chancellor Avory Is desirous that the
ruling passod last fall rogardlng tho
holding of functions on tho university
cnmpuB shall bo published. Tho rul
ing passod by tho board of rogonts
May 20, 1909,, is as follows:
"Thoro shall bo no dances in riny of
tho univorslty buildings, olthor at the
farm pr city campus, without spoclal
permission, from tho chancellor's of
fice This shnll not apply to tho Tom
plo, at which dances may bo scheduled
through tho office of tho suporlnton-'
dent of groundB and buildings, aftor
Reason for Publication.
Tho reason for tho publication of ,
this ruling nt tho presont timo is that
tho holding of baskotball lnformals -and
othor social functions on tho 'uni
versity cnmpuB has been In practico
for some timo slnco tho passing of
this rule. Tho univorslty authorities
doBlred to make tho enforcoment ot
this ruling as gradual as possiblo. But
now tho chancellor feels that tho time
has como when it must bo enforced,
and that such functions as are spocT
fled in tho ruling will not bo pormlt
tod unless thoro Is unusual roason
why they should.
Tho matter was brought .moro dl .
rectly to tho notico of tho chancellor,
by tho fact that a numbor of basket
ball lnformals -have boon, hold, in the -
armory. Theso lnformals aro moro or
less public in thoir nature, in that the ,
games aro public.
Tho ruling as passed by tho board
of regents will become offoctlvo after
Charter Day. Aftor that timo no func
tions at which thero is dancing will be
permitted in buildings on tho univer
sity campus without a written permit
of tho chnncollor.. This authority will
