The representative of the producers who has been here
to assist students in the construction of their plots will be
in Ann Arbor tomorrow and Tuesday, with office hours
from,2 to 4 o'clock in the reading rooms of the Press build-

be possible at these times.
Work will be started on+ the actual filming of the pic-

the selection of a cast from among the students a number
of local color scenes will be taken in the vicinity of Ann Ar-
bor.' A few have already been filmed by men from the pro-
ducing company, especially at the time of football games

11 years old.
She was born in Vienna something
less than 17 years ago, coming from
Italian stock. During the war sht
played at many concerts In Ceitral
Europe, and after the armistice she
was the first artist to tour Roumania
and Poland. She was engaed for an
American tour by F. C. Coppicus of
the Metropolitan Musical bureau in
the winter of 1921, making her debut
in Carnegie hall during that season.
Her triumph was so great that she
was able to give four New York re-
2*ta's in the next five weeks. At each
-f these she played an entirely differ-
ent program, an unparalleled feat in
every way.
Crities Puzzled
Critics in Europe and America,
while astonished at her feats of mem-
ory and technique, were entire1y at a
loss to accouat for her youthful mas-I
tery and her sympathetic under-
standing of the most d'fficult compo-
sitions. Professor Sevcik, the noted
violin teacher, with whom she studied
for a time, is quoted as saying .of
her power of the bow, "I cannot teach
her anything. It is as though the
personality of the composer whose
work she plays is living in her and
expressing himself through her."
Her program follows:
Concerto. minor ...........Bruch
Allegro moderatow
Allegro energico
Praeludium and Allegro........
....... Pugnani-Kreisler
Menuett .....................Mozart
Romance Andalouse.........Sarasatel

In the past the abridged announce- E
ment contained only a brief outline of
the work for the summer which in'
many cases was, found inadequate as
a guide to planning second semester
courses. This year the announcement
contains full details as to the nature,
of the courses, the class hours, and'
he instructors and professors in
charge, so that it will be possible for
any student to arrange his summer
schedule at this time.
Copies of the announcement will be
available at the Registrar's offie, the
Graduate school offlce, the School of
Education, and the Library.f
Work in practically all the depart-
ments will be expanded with addition-
al courses by regular faculty men and
visiting professors.' One feature of
outstanding importance is the Coach-
ing school which is to be conducted
for the first time here during the
Summer session. The work will be
under the supervision of Coach Field-
ing H. Yost, director of intercollegiate
athletics. He is to be assisted by the
entire ennelhing staff of the Univer-
sity, including Ray L. Fisher, base-
ball coach; S. J. Farrell. track coach;
