were amateurs, naa worked in-
dividually and were generallyl
sponsored by the learned societies
or by individual institutions, withl
a very small amount of coopera-
tion evident among those peoplel
in the archaeological field.
Prof. Griffin then pointed out
the major changes after 1920. He
said that archaeology in the
United States after this time be-

Today, rather than depending
almost entirely upon the collec-
tions of individuals, the museum

Increasing Competition
Then, too, he added, there is in-

cooperation between professional
and amateur archaeologists. There
is also this same competition and

basically concerned with trans-
ferring a poetic perception of
heroic experience through move-
ment. On stage he gives the ap-
pearance of a strong, mature man
in full control of his six-foot
frame.
Perhaps the most unusual thing
about Limon is his late interest
in dancing - he didn't even see
modern dance on stage until he
was 20 years old.
Since he first arrived in Califor-
ia from his native Mexico when
he was a small boy, he had made
up his mind to be a painter. Ex-
cept for an interest in music, he
had no desire for any other career.
Studied Painting
The crisis of his life came in
1928 when he left the University
of California after one year to
study painting at the New York
School of Design.
Finding the art galleries and

SHALL WE DANCE-Jose Limon brings his troupe of dancers to
the Ann Arbor High School Auditorium today. Limon will present
a repertoire including his original "Moors Pavani" with music
arranged by Simon Sodoff and "La Malinche," a festival play of
the Spanish American Indians with music by Norman Lloyd.

which "looked like something a
man could do without being ridi-
culous," he enrolled in a modern
dance class. Within a month he
was in the back chorus lines of
"Lysistrata" where he remained
for the show's entire run of nine
months.
Several shows followed his first
effort, but he considered his
Broadway career meilely as a
means of economic security. In
1940 he decided to "eat less," and
joined the Humphrey-Weidman
Dance Company.

the Belasco Theatre in 1947.
Three years later he was invit-
ed to take his dancers to Mexico
for the entire season as guests of
the government.
John Martin, New York Times
dance critic writes, "He was dined
and wined, interviewed, written
about, praised excitedly, discussed,
torn apart as only a lively and
revolutionary artist can be."
As a result of his great success,
the Mexican government offered
him an unlimited subsidy to stay
and rehabilitate dance along mod-
ern lines. Limon thought this was
too permanent for his taste and
has continued giving instruction
and concerts to support himself.
Discussing the importance of
modern dance, he/said, "Nobody
believes in it but us. We don't
want a cheap piece of entertain-
ment. We believe in it as art.
"I don't know what other way
I'd want to spend my life. If I
couldn't dance, I wouldn't want
to live," he said.
