to show the audience the best pro-
file, to look pleasant, to look at-
tractive, to look..."
When questioned as to her opin-
ion of the American moving-pic-
ture, Madame Schwimmer con-
doned the lack of artistic merit in
the movies. She is amazed, she,
says, at the primitive emotions that
take so important a part on the
screen, and at the public's readi-
ness to accept them with practical-
ly no demand for variation or ar-
tistic treatment.
"This may be due to the fact that'
the director has too much to say
about the actor, who becomes a
mere mechanical device," she re-
marked. With the marvelous tech-
nical equipment which is available
here, and the fact that America
has the money to pay for and de-
mand fine actors, it is a tragedy,
Madame Schwimmer feels, that
American moving-picture pro-
ducers have not already taken
steps toward the improvement of
C their productions in keeping with
the best artistic principles.
TO START INTRAMURAL I
BOWLINGTOURNAMENTS
Michigan's first intramural bowl-
ing tournament for women will
take place Tuesday, December 1$,
in the new Women's Athletic build-
ing, and all women on intramural
teams, who wish to practice before
this date, may use the alleys from
4 to 6 o'clock every day.
An instructor will be present at
this time, to help and coach any
beginners, and it is hoped that all
competitors will take advantage of
this opportunity to improve their
bowling. Each entrant must have
had two practices before she will
be eligible to enter the tournament.
As this is the first year that a
tournament has been staged in
bowling, it is not expected that
any great skill in the sport
will be displayed in the matches.
so no one need be afraid to
enter on this score. It is
hoped that every house will con-
tribute a team, and all athletic
managers must hand in the two
members of their team, by Friday',
December 13, at the office in Bar-
bour gymnasium.

Tryouts For Junior
Girls' Play Continue
Junior Girls' Play tryouts proced-
ed at a rapid pace yesterday, al,-.
proximately 40 women appearing
before the play committee. The
rapid rate at which the appoint-
ments are being filled is enabling
the committee to make additional
appointments for the three days of
tryouts remaining.
For each afternoon 36 women
have received five-minute appoint-
ments, making a total of 132
juniors scheduled to try out. There
remain about 100 women who wish
to make appointments.
The last opportunity to make an
appointment to try out will be
given from 10 to 12 o'clock today,
when a member of the committee
will be at the candy booth in Uni-
versity hall to complete the sched-
ule.
Tryouts for comedy parts are
especially desired by the commit-
tee, as there will be much use for
this type of material in the play
which has been selected. Excerpts
from plays, rather than poetry
should be given, the committee an-
nounces.
SALE OF GLOVES
CONTINUES TODAY
Mortarboard will continue the
sale of gloves begun during the
bazaar, at a table In University
hall, today and tomorrow. These
are fine quality French kid gloves
in a number of styles, some of
which are washable. The gloves
range in price from $2.50 to $4.25.
This year for the first time,
men's gloves are available. Orders
that are placed immediately will
be filled and delivered by Dec. 21
and should make very acceptable
Christmas gifts. The proceeds will
be given to the Women's league.
