Quaint, Old-Time Effects Much Liked by Milady

We have with us this week Kather-

still one of the very best sellers, and
his dramatization of it is awaited
eagerly. Sunday night will be the

Arlen himself is expected to be
present. And if these two facts are
not enough to bring Detroit out in full
array, the two leading actresses are;

weeks' run. Incidentally, this play
set a record run for Detroit, having
played for two weeks at the Garrick
before the stock company had it. It
will be succeeded by "Expressing
Willie," a play by Rachel Crothers
that has quite a reputation in New
York where it ran all last season. As
its title suggests, it concerns a fellow
who wants to express himself all over
the place.
"The Dream Girl," with Fay Bain,

to five years of age attend. There are
no nursery schools connected with
the universities in England, accord-

such schools in England. In thet
United States, there are approximately
ten. Miss Lord was asked to come to
the United States to take the branch
of the Merrill-Palmer school. The

The meals are especially prepared by
dieticians, who pay particular atten-
tion to the nutritive need of the small
child. Meat is the exception ratherI
than the rule. A nap of two hours
follows luncheon. The cots are small
and can be arranged by the children.
Each one has a bright woolly blanket
in diminutive size. A shelf in the
sleeping rooms is maintained for the
'placing of the little bedroom slippers,
when not in use. After napping a
mid-afternoon lunch is served. The
children then play outside until called
for at 3:30 o'clock.
Records are kept of the child's

Mrs. A. H. Lloyd, former chairman of
the nursery section of the Faculty
Women's club, have also been in-
strumental in the establishment of the
branch nursery school here.
The Merrill-Palmer School was es-
tablished in Detroit in 1920 through a
provi:-cu in the will of Lizzie Merrill
The provision is as follows:
"I hold profoundly the conviction
that the welfare of any community is
divinely, and hence inseparabll, de-
pen dent upon the quality of its moth-
erhood, and the spirit and charaictem
of its homes, and moved by this con.

Miss Edna N. White is director of
the School and Dr. Helen T. Woolley
is assistant director. Miss White
spent the summer of 1921 in England
making/a first hand study of the nur
sery schools there. The nursery
school in Detroit is used as a labora-
tory for child study in the fields ot
mental development, health training,
and physical care. Both undergrad-
uate and graduate students from more
than 20 colleges are taking courses in
the various phases of the care and
management of young children, physi-
cal, mental, educational and social.
Advanced work in child psychology is
also given by Dr. Woolley, formerly
director of the psychological work of
the Cincinnati public - schools. Th
Peed for the nursery school was felt
in developing better methods for train-
ing in child care and child manage-
ment. In creating the school, the
children's development is vitally aided
and a laboratory is established for the
training of young women. The nur-
sery school was founded in 1922. Most
of the students are in the home econ-
omics department of the various uni-
versities. Full credit is given forthe
work, but degrees are not granted.
