13R11 MODEL LEAGUE ASSEMBLY IN LANSING At Recent Meeting

Profit This Year Is Smaller Wecanse
Secenery Was Paid For From
Play Receipts
MONEY GOES TO LEAGUE
Returns from this year's Junior
Girls' play, "For the Love of Pete,'
have just been announced by Marie
Hartwig, '29, business manager of the
play. The net profit has been com-
puted as $1700.
The returns from last year's play
were in the neighborhood of $2,000.
The fact that this year's profit is
smaller does not, however, indicate
that the play has been less success-
ful, for the juniors this year paid for
their scenery out of the play receipts.
This is a custom which has not been
followed before, and had it not been
followed this year the profit would
have amounted to more than $2,000.
Another fact which curtailed the
play returns this year is that the cast
did not present "For the Love of Pete"
in Detroit, as has been done in some
tprevious years.
The entire 'sum earned by the
Junior Girls' play is to go into the
Women's league building fund, and
will form a, part of the pledge of
undergraduate women, amounting to
$10,000. The Junior Girls' play re-
turns are annually the largest c>n-
tribution madeto the league by wom-
en of any class.
MEETING REVIVES
OLD DANCE FORMS
Among the various forms of en-
tertainment provided for the dele-
gates to the recent sports conference
for high school girls, a very quaint
and interesting form of social dancing
was revived, the cotillion..
The name cotillion first signified
one of the brisk, frolicking, dances of
the French .peasants, but later, dur-
ing the time of Charles .X, an adap-
tion of it became very popular in the
French court. At first, the dancers
were limited to one or two couples,
but gradually it became a round
dance, in which many couples par-
ticipated. It was in this form that
the cotillion was introduced into Eng-
land and became so very popular
there.
From" a. crude peasant dance, the
cotillion has developed .into a very,
complicated form* of entertainment,
and includes.a long succession of de-

tions which was held May 11-12 in
east I1 .nnsing, Miss Beatrice Johnson,
adviser of women, has brought back
a number of distinct impressions
In the first place, Miss Johnson ex-
presses disappointment that more 'stu-
"ent", in th University did not show
interest in the assembly. Michigan
was represented by only 16 students,
while Albion college sent 17 to the
meeting. Another feature of the as-
sembly was that no women students
were present, although they were
free to attend if they wished.
Miss Johnson, believes, however,
that the model assembly accomplished
a great deal in the way of informing
students who had previously no vital
conception of the meaning of the
league, or of what it means to have
representatives from many countries
talk over the problem of living to-
gether on a basis of peace and har-
mony. And she hopes that soon the
University will be the scene of a
similar model assembly, 'sponsored
perhaps by the Cosmopolitan club.
The sssions of the model assembly
Miss Johnson found to be character-
ized by greater orderliness than the
sessins of the real league, which she
has visited in Geneva. The address-
.s and reports were given in both
English and French, as at Geneva, but
with the difference that at East Lan-
sing the delegates did not leave the
room during the speeches which they
could not understand.
The model assembly was organized
vices for the selection of partners,
which is generally carried throughj
under the direction of a master of
ceremonies.
Among the different ways of choos-
ing partners in the cotillion planned
for the delegates to the sports con-
ference, candles, paper bags, bibs, and
candy were all used. Old Rustic, a
simple dance in circle formation, a
maypole dance ,and a bower dance
also added to the variety of the pro-
gram.

State college. Thirteen other colleges
of Michigan cooperated with the State
college by sending delegates to the as-
sembly. Miss Bates, the daughter of
Henry M. Bates, dean of the Law
school, was active in helping to or-f
ganize the East Lansing end of the
program.
The model assembly was officially
opened by the Honorable George W.
Wickersham, who is president of the
League of Nations Non-partisan as-
sociation. The sessions included re-I
ports of the committees on the codi-
fication of international law, on traf-
fic in opium, on mandates, and on
disarmament, and the report of the
minority of the committee on dis-
armament. There was also an an-
nouncement of Germany's adherence
to the optional clause in regard to the
World court and of China's request
that the league advise the national to
revise their unequal treaties with her.
General debate was held on some of
these items.
